South Carolina is the 12th state that will conduct some kind of investigation into whether or not the Planned Parenthood abortion business is breaking any state or federal laws with its sales of aborted baby body parts.
By Father John W. Crossin, OSFS Pastors, Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant, know that challenging the members of the Congregation is part of the job description. Issuing such “wakeup calls” is usually not the pastor’s favorite thing to do. The pastor’s popularity -- and collections -- might go down as people can initially be shaken or even angry about a chal […]
The Planned Parenthood abortion business is under heavy public relations fire after it was caught four times negotiating for the sale of body parts from aborted babies and showing no moral qualms about dissecting them in front of undercover investigators. Since then, Planned Parenthood has played the blame game — going after the pro-life undercover investiga […]

I like posts that talk about the end of the world. Use the word "apocalypse" in a link and I will click.That being said, we are certainly at the end of the world, in some sense at least. Possibly, of course, the actual end of the actual world (Do you go to confession regularly?). But certainly we are near the end of the world we
Society has a funny way of deciding when to express outrage. Millions of innocent humans (aka pregnancy tissue) are slaughtered and their fully intact body parts are sold. Crickets. A single lion, which most have never heard of, gets hunted for sport. International drama. I despise the thought of big game hunting, but it never ceases to amaze me how rhetoric […]
Washington D.C., Jul 30, 2015 / 09:49 am (CNA/EWTN News).- The final plans are set for the public’s chance to watch Pope Francis’ Sept. 24 address to Congress live at the U.S. Capitol.
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.
