A thought

I am very happy about the recent change in succession laws to the Throne, and am pleased that all of our PM's could agree! Catholics can noe be married to a sovereign!

In other news, in Ireland, Dana Scallon's campaign is really hitting off! She has faith, hope, and love. Just what Ireland needs!

A story to touch the Heart

A vigil participant was noticing that nearly all the cars in the abortion center parking lot were parked in the staff area — very few were in the area reserved for those with appointments. And that was good.
The volunteer was soon deep in prayer when the abortionist drove up — with his wife and their teenager. He got out of the car and headed toward the building while the wife and teen drove away.
The abortionist’s wife pulled up next to the vigil participant, rolled down her window and asked, “How are you doing?” The surprised volunteer answered, “Good! How about you?”
She responded, “I just wanted to tell you that I so appreciate what you do and how you are always so nice and respectful.” That simple response turned out to be the opening line in a very lengthy conversation.
The wife expressed her gratitude for the way the 40 Days for Life vigil is conducted. In another city, there is a group outside the abortion center that yells at her husband.
Here, however, he’s been told that the vigil participants are praying for him. “He just can’t understand how you can be so against what he does and yet so nice to him.”
She explained that her husband grew up in a home that had no use for religion — the concept is totally foreign to him. The volunteer promised to pray that he would be able to grasp — and eventually embrace — faith. The teen blurted out, “Please do!”

How touching. You see, prayer can move the heaviest mountain.

Yeah, so my banner is gone.

Blogger is being a major pain in the backside today.

Please help a Servant of God

You must have heard about Fr Byers from Holy Souls Hermitage. He is a Priest who prays for othe Priests. A Priest's Priest. I encourage you to head on over to his web page, email him a letter of support, offer a few prayers for him, and send him some donations. This is a great thing that he's doing, and I pray that you will support him.

Same-sex "marriage" may force churches to stop performing legal marriages

The legalization of same-sex “marriage” in Australia could push Christian churches out of their historic role in solemnizing legal marriages altogether, according to one archbishop.
Archbishop Barry Hickey of the archdiocese of Perth said late last month that the archdiocese would cancel its registration that allows it to celebrate legal marriages if the government attempted to force them to participate in same-sex ceremonies.

“We might be back to the ghetto,” Hickey told parishioners at St. Ninian and St. Chad in Maylands. “We can’t do those marriages at all. And if the law forces us to, we cancel our registration as marriage celebrants. We just don’t do it.”
Hickey added, “We continue to perform Church marriages but we can’t perform the marriage where there is a basic objection.”
I applaud his decision!  There is ABSOLUTELY NO reason a homosexual marriage can be performed in a Catholic Church. And, if it we legal I have no doubt in my mind that a poor Priest would be pressured to witness one.

Was my birthday....

'Twas my birthday the other day, I had family and friends over for tea and cake.
I prayed a lot too, thankful for my birthday. What is more important though, is tham millions of unborn babies are dying because of abortion.

Pray for Life!

Do you know what bugs me?

When I hear someone complaining about what their MP or a certain politician has done, when they didn't even VOTE in the election.

You never voted, you never cast your opinion, you never participated in the democratic process as laid out in the Westminster system under Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Therefore, thou hast no right to complain.

Pope Benedict XVI has declared a “Year of Faith” which will begin in October 2012, the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council.
“It will be a moment of grace and commitment to a more complete conversion to God, to strengthen our faith in Him and proclaim Him with joy to the people of our time,” said the Pope, making his announcement during Sunday Mass at St. Peter’s Basilica.
The Year of Faith will run from October 11, 2012, until November 24, 2013, which is the Solemnity of Christ the King.
The Pope said in his Oct. 16 remarks that it will give “new impetus to the mission of the whole Church to lead men out of the desert in which they often find themselves, to the place of life, of friendship with Christ.” He also said that “reasons, purposes and guidelines” for the year will be set out in an Apostolic Letter to be published “in the coming days.”

Here's something to make your mind bleed

Now they're showing porn to youngsters.
MY goodness, what is this!
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, October 6, 2011 ( – Videos showing naked men graphically sodomizing one another - included as “resource material” in an “anti-bullying” initiative for Vancouver’s schools - are “really inappropriate,” says a trustee.
Trustee Ken Denike’s criticism of the Out in Schools program (OIS) comes after parents complained that Burnaby schools were duped into supporting it as an “anti-bullying” initiative when in fact the program is nothing other than a “scam” by “sex activists” to “sexualize students” and “lure” them into “homosexualist culture.”
“I thought it was really inappropriate, especially for a 13-year-old,” Denike told QMI Agency, referring to material from the Health Initiative for Men (HIM) website that was listed as a “youth resource” in the Out In Schools booklet.
“This is material that’s on Xtube, which is really adult material.”

Full story at that link.

On the page, there is a link to the "material", I will not click it, I don't advise you to either.

Of things past

I miss the times when the BBC had those wonderful theme songs, now they just used stupid computer-generated crap.

Does anyone get that nostalgic feelings when you watch old RTE programmes too?

Some new mass settings

I just found a site with an excellent setting of the Mass, called Alium Music. Simply beautiful!
