ST. ANDREW
Apostle of the Lord

Archbishop Theodore McCarrick, new Archbishop of Washington D.C.Considering all the commotion going on with the election process, there really is only one man in our nation's capitol that you can trust - the New Archbishop of Washington, D.C. and probable cardinal-elect Theodore McCarrick
With the boundaries clearly delineated for a cultural civil war in our country, would the right man for President of the US please step forward?

County by County Presidential Results.
Final vote tally by counties in the US

  • Al Gore   The Chad Files   George W. Bush   Judicial or Legislative for Executive?   Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert   Bishop Fulton J. Sheen
    Not so fast, Mr. Gore! And please, Mr. Bush, if it is dragged into court, do what Bishop Sheen said would be best for "the principles of politics and the rebirth of a nation" and bow to a fellow Republican who would carry on all you've promised. Through the Pope, God has put the right man at the helm of the faithful in D.C. Now we need the right man in the White House. If Florida continues to flounder, the man who would be really right for America might just surprise many!

         Because of the numerous e-mails received in support of our editorial last week and the fact that many we're denied the opportunity to read it because of a network glitch between Network Solutions and our IP's secondary server, we are repeating last week's commentary with an update.

          We could wax nostalgic for that staple quiz show with Garry Moore back in the 50's and early 60's called "To Tell The Truth!" in which three people were questioned and the panel had to come up with who was telling the truth regarding who they were or their occupation. Today truth is as difficult to uncover as finding old reels of this black and white television program. In this "neverending story" of vote counts, both sides have let the people down with the legal wrangling that has greatly besmirched the constitutional principles of our elective process. While Al Gore has truly exposed his underbelly of deceit and doublespeak, the mainstream media - the false prophets have done all they can to denigrate George W. Bush to the point that if he wins out, he could be polarized. Bishop Fulton J. Sheen wrote, "Some day a politician will arise who will be so devoted to the truth that he will follow it, knowing that by doing so he will go down to defeat. That day will be the restoration of politics as principles, it will also be the rebirth of a nation." His excellency wrote those prophetic words nearly fifty years ago. Could Mr. Bush be that man?

          What if no one is a clear-cut winner, what if fraud is proven in the voting, what if the stalemate is so bad that violence could break out. Would Mr. Bush sacrifice his own political career for the rebirth of a nation? We know Mr. Gore wouldn't. It's very possible with all the accusations going on from both sides including missing and disputed military overseas absentee votes. Then what? For pro-lifers it could be just what God ordered for Bush would be the winner by agreeing to step aside in favor of the next man in line to be the Chief Executive of the White House: Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert, a strong faithfilled man who is even more pro-life than Mr. Bush. He would not only fulfill all that Bush has promised, but would be more able to carry out a culture of life agenda because he could unite both parties, not having been besmirched or polarized by this mess that exists in the post-election crisis. If it comes to that, pray that an honorable politician, who Bishop Sheen foretells, would come forward for the good of the country for the will of God for His people. For our commentary, Prayer! It's our only weapon! Let's use it! see CATHOLIC PewPOINT

    HIGHLIGHTS FOR THIS WEEK'S DAILY ISSUES

    NEWS & VIEWS
    from a Catholic Viewpoint



    For the Latest News and Headlines from a Catholic point of view, The DAILY CATHOLIC provides the following reliable news sources:

  • Catholic World News
  • ZENIT News
  • Church News
  • Catholic News Service
  • FIDES News
  • MISNA News
  • L'Osservatore Romano
  • FRIDAY


    In the November 24th issue Sister Mary Lucy Astuto asks in her column this week how many other Catholics see the whole Clinton immorality playing all over again in the most desperate of attempts to pilfer the presidency of the United States and continue to promulgate the culture of death, disposing of unborn babies at breakneck speed while upholding the rights of the pregnant chad at the ballot. Talk about morals and priorities askewed!
    SATURDAY



    On November 25th, a day of multiple feasts in the Church liturgy, we present the Fifth Lesson on our special series on the Charism of Conjugal Love AT ONE WITH GOD as we turn our attention to how we judge our spouse in "Nobody's Perfect" by applying Our Lord's wise words in Scripture regarding removing the beam in our own eye, before worrying about the speck in our spouse's.
    SUNDAY

    Feast of Christ the King

    On November 26th, the solemn Feast of Christ the King we repeat Pope John Paul II's catechesis on the Eucharist from his Wednesday General Papal Audiences, reminding all of the need for unity with our separated brethren, but not at the expense of compromise for the Holy Eucharist is the key to Ecumenism and those in difference with the Church must understand and accept this infallible teaching.
    MONDAY

    St. Augustine   

    November 27th we bring you Pat Ludwa's thought-provoking column "VIEW FROM THE PEW" in which he reminds us of Christ's words to render to Caesar the things that are his, and to God the things that are the Almighty's. This is the case in building the City of God as Saint Augustine advocates and Pat documents in contrast to what this campaign has promised in building a city of men.
    TUESDAY



    In the November 28th issue we bring you Cyndi Cain's article in her SYMPHONY OF SUFFERING series in which she entreats everyone to cease all the complaining, turn to God and give thanks. While things are in bad shape, they could be worse but for the grace of God and His Merciful Love Gift of giving Himself in the Holy Eucharist.
    WEDNESDAY




    In the November 29th issue we bring you Dr. Frank Joseph's column PRO-LIFE PRESCRIPTIONS in which he shows how the law has been so twisted that a pandora's box has been opened and what we find all the way from south Florida to the White House is the same deadly serpent that first raised his ugly head in the Garden of Eden.
    THURSDAY

    On November 30th, the Feast of Saint Andrew the Apostle and brother of Saint Peter, we repeat, because of an unfortunate interuption in our server, the 207th installment of our on-going series in the Commandments as well as the first day of a special Novena in preparation for the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, whom our country is consecrated to under Mary's protection.
