Pro-Life Prescriptions:

For a man who went to Bible School, he should know better!

  In today's issue Dr. Frank Joseph would love to write about endearing events that are contributing to man's dignity and his rights to life, liberty and happiness. He'd love to, but there is this problem that keeps cropping up. We are being bombarded in the newspapers, on television, in music, on the evening news, in our commercials and programming with a political correctness that gives us permission to excuse the culture of death and perversity. What's sadder is that this false belief is being perpetuated by one who should know better. That person is none other than the former Divinity school attendee Al Gore who now has higher ambitions. He preaches tolerance, but he is intolerant of God's Laws, even going so far as to question whether God exists in his clever manipulation of the media spin in condoning sin and turning things around so cleverly to label those who won't tolerate sin as intolerant biggots and homophobes. After eight years of this indoctrination under Clinton he's learned well, sadly too well. Are we going to fall for it a third time? Dr. Joseph writes an intriguing reply to Gore, asking him to repent of his ways. For his column An invitation to Al Gore to return to the Good Book, see Pro-Life Prescriptions: LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL!

    Taken from the Gospel for Wednesday's Mass

    "But woe to you rich! for you are now having your comfort. Woe to you who are filled! for you shall hunger. Woe to you who laugh now! for you shall mourn and weep. Woe to you when all men speak well of you! In the selsame manner their fathers used to treat the prophets."

    Events that happened Today in Church History

      Pope Sabinian    Today is the 1,396th anniversary of the election of Pope Sabinian, the 65th in the line of Peter. This Blaeran-born Pontiff had a tough act to follow for he was the immediate successor of Pope Saint Gregory the Great. Thought there was a vacancy of six months between Gregory's death and Sabinian's elevation to the Papal Throne, he didn't skip a beat in reinforcing the temporal power established by Gregory I. He also made a point circulate wider the practice of Gregorian Chant, emphasizing the importance of calling it thus in honor of his predecessor. Though his pontificate lasted less than two years, it is Sabinian who is credited with mandating that a sanctuary lamp always be lit where the Blessed Sacrament resides, so the next time you make a visit to a church or chapel, thank him for this tradition in honoring our Blessed Lord in the Eucharist. And when you hear the church bells, if you're fortunate to live near a church that still has them, remember it was Sabinian who regulated the ringing of the bells to signal to the people the canonical hours for meditation and prayers.

    Famous quotes of Bishop Fulton J. SheenJesus shows us how to share joy and sorrow

       They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but the words of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen have been known to launch a thousand images in one's mind, one of the ways this late luminary did so much to evangelize the faith. Because of the urgency of the times and because few there are today who possess the wisdom, simplicity and insight than the late Archbishop who touched millions, we are bringing you daily gems from his writings. The good bishop makes it so simple that we have dubbed this daily series: "SIMPLY SHEEN".

      "How beautifully both the sympathies of joy and sorrow were revealed in the character of Our Blessed Lord when He saw the leper, the widow of Naim, the blind man by the wayside, the hungry multitudes distressed 'as sheep without a shepherd.' He touched the leper; He dried the tears of the widow; He was hungry with the hungry and He fed them. He suffered with their suffering. One day a publican made a great feast in his house. Our Lord sat down with His disciples, saying that while the Bridegroom was with them, they should all rejoice. He also entered sympathetically into the joys of the marriage feast of Cana, making better wine even when the poor wine had been drained."
