For the past 20 years, children as young as 11 in Seaside, Oregon have been attending a sex conference, funded by taxpayer dollars in the name of safe sex. Brad Victor, a spokesperson for the group behind the conference, had this to say in April when the conference was held:
WASHINGTON — What started out as a blog at a time when few people knew about blogs and hardly anyone was familiar with Twitter is a living and growing ministry run by two women religious who are Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Last Sunday, the final Sunday of the liturgical year, was “Stir Up” Sunday, taken from the translation of the Latin Collect for Holy Mass in the Extraordinary Form (which probably was just transferred into the Book of Common Prayer). This was the Sunday to begin making the Christmas Puddings! And I missed it. I was on the road.
In a shocking case out of Arizona, a student has filed a lawsuit against a teach who she alleges raped her until she became pregnant and then attempted to cause an abortion when he learned she was pregnant by repeatedly inserting a metal ruler into her vagina.
On the feast day of St Catherine of Alexandria, a picture of the quite homely looking sacristy of the Parish Church of St Catherine of Alexandria, in Gmina Jaśliska, in south-east Poland. The sanctuary is through the open door. It’s got the look and feel of a contemporary French farmhouse kitchen to me. St Catherine of […]
Friends, I’m tired. I just deleted a whole bunch of registrations by accident. If you have the patience, and you registered lately and nothing came of it, you might try again. Also… remember to use well that important field in the form wherein you say something about yourself. It doesn’t have to be long or detailed. Include something to let me know that yo […]

Psalm 93 [Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition]
1 The Lord is the God to whom revenge belongeth: the God of revenge hath acted freely.
2 Lift up thyself, thou that judgest the earth: render a reward to the proud.
3 How long shall sinners, O Lord: how long shall sinners glory?
4 Shall they utter, and speak iniquity: shall all speak who work injustice?
5 Thy people, O Lord, they have brought low: and they have afflicted thy inheritance.
6 They have slain the widow and the stranger: and they have murdered the fatherless.
7 And they have said: The Lord shall not see: neither shall the God of Jacob understand.
8 Understand, ye senseless among the people: and, you fools, be wise at last.
9 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? or he that formed the eye, doth he not consider?
10 He that chastiseth nations, shall he not rebuke: he that teacheth man knowledge?
11 The Lord knoweth the thoughts of men, that they are vain.
12 Blessed is the man whom thou shalt instruct, O Lord: and shalt teach him out of thy law.
13 That thou mayst give him rest from the evil days: till a pit be dug for the wicked.
14 For the Lord will not cast off his people: neither will he forsake his own inheritance.
15 Until justice be turned into judgment: and they that are near it are all the upright in heart.
16 Who shall rise up for me against the evildoers? or who shall stand with me against the workers of iniquity?
17 Unless the Lord had been my helper, my soul had almost dwelt in hell.
18 If I said: My foot is moved: thy mercy, O Lord, assisted me.
19 According to the multitude of my sorrows in my heart, thy comforts have given joy to my soul.
20 Doth the seat of iniquity stick to thee, who framest labour in commandment?
21 They will hunt after the soul of the just, and will condemn innocent blood.
22 But the Lord is my refuge: and my God the help of my hope.
23 And he will render them their iniquity: and in their malice he will destroy them: the Lord our God will destroy them.
