George W. BushSaint Thomas More, Patron of PoliticiansCardinal John J. O'Connor possessed the human ideals Governor George W. Bush espouses Time to put your vote where your heart is!
With the Holy Father's motu proprio proclamation of Saint Thomas More as Patron of Politicians and George W. Bush's revelation that he admires and strives to practice the virtues of the late, great Cardinal O'Connor, it gives hope to all that the runaway train will get back on track ASAP as in "Always Say A Prayer!" Spurred on by Heavenly assistance, be sure to cast your vote on Tuesday!

       In our editorial this week, we share with all interesting words by George W. Bush on one of the men he admires most and why we personally confidently lauded Bush in our editorial last week. Is he the perfect choice? No! But he is the best out there and is the closest electable candidate who will strive to uphold the virtues of the Patron of Politicians Saint Thomas More whom Pope John Paul II proclaimed as such this weekend during the JUBILEE FOR POLITICIANS. For the past decade or so we have been on a runaway train heading toward the abyss as morality takes the farthest back seat while all caution is thrown to the wind. Loyal Catholics and committed Christians have hung on by the skin of their teeth, but always with hope in their hearts that it would not plummet pell mell into the chasm of chaos in a similar final fate that befell Sodom and Gomorrah. We have prayed these past eight years that someone would surface on the political scene to reverse the raging locomotive of immorality, murder and deceit. While the secular media has painted Bush as anti-Catholic because of a misunderstanding at Bob Jones University, it was Bush who turned to the late great Cardinal John J. O'Connor for advice in sincere contrition for offending Catholics and to assure the faithful he was not against Catholics. His actions during this campaign and words at the annual Al Smith Benefit Dinner in New York affirm this. Conversely, Al Gore's posturing during the campaign that he is a bible believer ironically reveals more truth in his mistaking a verse than anyone ever realized.

    Requiestcat in Pace

    In the November 3rd issue Sister Mary Lucy Astuto fondly remembers a dear shepherd from her own diocese in Omaha - Archbishop Daniel E. Sheehan who died of a brain tumor on October 24th. In 1993, after serving 24 years as the seventh bishop of Omaha, he retired succeeded by Archbishop Elden Curtiss.
    SATURDAY
    Pope Paul VI

    On November 4th we present the Third Lesson on our special series on the Charism of Conjugal Love AT ONE WITH GOD as we dissect the problems that have arisen because the people of God rejected Pope Paul VI's extremely wise words in Humanae Vitae. Artificial contraception, Abortion, Adultery, Abuse and Abandonment are suffocating souls.
    SUNDAY

    In the November 5th issue we bring you the words of Pope John Paul II from his Angelus address on the Solemnity of All Saints in which he exhorted all to stay the journey toward Heaven, to lift up our hearts toward the Heavenly Father and strive, though we are sinners, to be saints in the best way we can in today's world. He also acknowledged the 50th anniversary of the Dogma of the Assumption.

    MONDAY

    On November 6th we bring you Pat Ludwa's column in which he reminds Catholics it doesn't take a brain to know who to vote for but it does take heart to vote God's choice, not pro-choice! We also bring you Dr. Frank Joseph's best columns as a refresher before Tuesday's elections as we conclude the nine-day Novena many readers have been keeping in prayerful anticipation of a victory for the Sanctity of Life!
    TUESDAY

    Election Day is Here!

    On November 7th, Election Day, we urge all to vote their conscience. Hopefully we've been instrumental, along with others in the Church, in tweaking consciences to vote for the candidate who best supports the Sanctity of Life, especially regarding the horrendous sin of abortion. To this end we bring you Jesus' special message from 1995 in "THE HIDDEN WAY" on the many ways one can violate the Fifth Commandment "Thou Shalt Not Kill."
    WEDNESDAY
    Cyndi Cain

    On November 8th we bring you the seventeenth installment of Cyndi Cain's inspirational SYMPHONY OF SUFFERING as she gently prods all, through the grace of the Holy Spirit, to urge those who would chatter in God's House to learn why they are there and Who they are there for. Loose lips can sink ships and souls. Kindness and love can conquer the frustration factor!
    THURSDAY

    On November 9th, the Feast of the Dedication of the Lateran Basilica we bring you the 205th installment of our on-going series from My Catholic Faith called APPRECIATING THE PRECIOUS GIFT OF OUR FAITH beginning a a series on the Fourth Commandment, "Honor thy Father and thy Mother"...now, if only children would follow it!
