Allied with satan!

Senator Jim Jeffords' defection from the Republican Party is a cleverly conceived conspiracy to reinforce the pro-abortion plank. The saddest part is that senators who claim to be Catholic now have their finger on the trigger!

    "Jeffords knew his departure would now give the Democratic party control of the Senate, and Tom Daschle, who is a Catholic, would now be the Senate Majority leader. Don’t let Daschle’s Catholicism fool you. He is still pro-choice to kill the unborn. (PCKU) He does NOT want Roe Vs Wade to be overturned. He goes against the Doctrine of his own Church and mocks the commandment, 'Thou Shalt Not Kill.' Daschle, on "Meet the Press" said there will be no drilling on wild life refuges. Democrats are more concerned about possible death to a few animals than the death of 1.4 million babies every year. Their thinking is so screwed up that it can only be attributed to an unearthly force -- satan."
  Today, Dr. Frank Joseph points out the Judas Iscariot tendencies of Senator Jim Jeffords' defection from the Republican Party. It is a cleverly concealed campaign to empower the forces of satan to keep any one who espouses a pro-life view from the Supreme Court. Only in that way can the Democratic Party prevent the overturning of the hideous and unlawful Roe vs. Wade that has haunted America's soul for 28 years and counting. Dr. Frank lists the six most dangerous men in the Senate - all Democrats, all supposedly Catholic, all "Herod's Heroes" - and he once again calls on the Bishops to get off the snide and issue a formal announcement that these pro-abort politicians, who defy Almighty God's unchangeable Laws, have incurred automatic excommunication: latae sententiae. Only then will Catholics understand the Church means what it preaches. If they remain silent, what are Catholics to think? The longer they wait, the more preborn innocents die and the more souls are lost through the silent condonement of murder. For his column, You cannot justify sin! , see PRO LIFE PRESCRIPTIONS

Bishop Anthony J. O'Connell: We implore you to call Florida Congressman Mark Foley to task for his sorrowful pro-abort stance.

   Today's Herod's Hero is the Democratic Representative in the United States House from Florida's 16th District, the Honorable Mark Foley. There's nothing honorable about how he, as a 'Catholic,' has promoted the culture of death. We call on him to repent and for his Bishop in Palm Beach Bishop Anthony Joseph O'Connell along with Foley's shepherd in Washington D.C. Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, to issue the ultimatum of the "Bell, Book, and Candle" if he will not hear even the Church. We beg of the Bishops, to stand up for the Roman Catholic Church, to exact the discipline all Catholics are expected to follow. By Foley's sorrowful 63% pro-abortion record during 4 terms in the House, he has shown an alarming consistency to turn away from God by showing disdain for Catholic doctrine and being a willing accomplice to satan. We implore Mr. Foley to amend his ways, to turn away from embracing the pro-abort stance with no mercy for the lives of millions of unborn. For another betrayer who seeks to perpetuate the culture of death and slay the innocents, see HEROD'S HEROES

We owe nothing to Caesar if he ursurps that which is God's alone to grant
    "The very reason we obey the State is that God established it; yet in that very affirmation, we also see that the State must obey God, and that inasmuch as the State departs from the law of God, it no longer deserves our allegiance. The apostles faced this reality when they were ordered not to speak again in the name of Jesus. "We must obey God rather than men," was their response (Acts 5:29). We admit the same principle in our own "Pledge of Allegiance" when we declare that this is "One nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all." That is what we are pledging allegiance to. If the nation is no longer under God, or no longer secures liberty and justice for its people, neither does it deserve our allegiance. "
  This week, Father Frank Pavone weighs in on the Church and State issue. On the heels of the Supreme Court's frightful and shameful decision yesterday not to hear the Indiana Ten Commandments case, Fr. Frank shows how Church and State are separated and how they are dependent on the other as well. He also points out that both are dependent on a higher power Who created both and God's Laws always trump man's. This especially holds true for the Fifth Commandment which is violated blatantly with every abortion. While the atheists, ACLU, and pro-abort radicals do all they can to eliminate God and conscience, they fail to understand our national motto which very much unites Church and State as necessary: "In God we Trust!"

Novena in preparation for Pentecost



       In preparation for the celebration of the Descent of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost Sunday next Sunday, the "Birthday" of the Church, we provide a Nine-Day Novena to help you prepare and call upon the Advocate, the Sanctifier for strength and the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit. For the Novena, see NOVENA

OPEN LETTER TO HIS HOLINESS

An Urgent Plea to Pope John Paul II, 264th Successor of Peter: Please do not change the Papacy as the modernists would want, but leave it intact as Christ instructed in Matthew 16: 17-19.

   With the Extraordinary Consistory of Cardinals now completed and the evident intent of many to weaken the Papacy, we present the seventh part of an Urgent Plea to His Holiness Pope John Paul II not to succumb to the pressure of the progressivists and not to change the Papacy no matter how much pressure is put on him. We urge you to read this with a discerning heart as we near the Feast of Pentecost - the birthday of Holy Mother Church. Pray that the Holy Spirit will guide you in reading this respectful, but honest plea, and guide all prelates of the Church to maintain the true tenets, and guide the Keeper of the Keys to keep intact the Primacy of Peter. This is published with permission. It was compiled by (right to left above:) Atila Sinke Guimarães, Dr. Marian Horvat, Michael J. Matt, and John Vennari. Guimarães, a Brazilian scholar, has been researching this subject matter for twenty years and knows whereof he speaks. The authors back everything up with undeniable truths in their documentation. For part seven of this Open Letter to His Holiness, see PLEASE PRESERVE THE PRIMACY OF PETER

"I have given them Thy word; and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world. I do not pray that Thou take them out of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in the truth. Thy word is truth. Even as Thou hast sent Me into the world, so I also have sent them into the world. And for them I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified in truth." John 17: 14-19

Calcutta Archbishop recommends Beatification soon for Mother Teresa.

   With the investigation for the cause of Mother Teresa's almost completed, Archbishop Henry Sebastian D'Souza of Calcutta sees no reason her beatification will not go quickly, possibly even this year. The Vatican remains noncomittal, reminding all that the process is a long and painstaking one even though the Holy Father has made an exception with the holy founder of the Missionaries of Charity and waived the five-year waiting period. Many believe Pope John Paul II would like to canonize the Albanian nun who he met with several times. For more, see Universal News

Zambia Bishops finally weigh in on the defection of one of their own to the Moonies

    Though the media made a circus of former Archbishop Emmanuel Milingo, the progressive activist prelate who bailed on his vocation and responsibilities by running off and getting married to South Korean physician Marie Sung on Saturday in New York in a excessive ceremony of the Moonies who get married in droves for publicity sake. Well he got the publicity. He's also got few years left. Being 71, you would think he would be concerned for his spiritual welfare, but the world, the flesh and the devil has seemingly won out. His former colleagues in Zambia pray he will realize his great error and repent. For more, see Universal News

St. Joan of Arc The Maid of Orleans is muddied and bloodied, but not bowed even as the Church Prelates betrayed her to the English

   On this date 570 years ago in 1431 Saint Joan of Arc, one year and one week after being captured and sold to the British and falsely accused as a heretic, was burned at the stake. The youngest of five children, she was given mystical graces by God at a young age. Though she didn't understand fully her mission, she was obedient in defending the Dauphin of France. She led an expedition to relieve besieged Orleans. Captured in battle on May 23, 1430, Joan was sold to the British and used as a political ploy by the hierarchy without the Pope's knowledge of the truth of her holiness. As time passed the truth came to the surface and the ignominy of her death became the glory of her martyrdom when she was canonized by Pope Benedict XV in 1920 as the holy Maid of Orleans.

That sickening pit in man's soul can be hell!

    "Hell - which once was pictured 'way down there' - is back again, but now 'way in here' in the breast of man. He who was wont in saner days to confess his faults, admit personal guilt, and try to make some amends for both, is induced to become a kind of regurgitating sewer, vomiting the rottenness within; an analysis of the stagnant waters that comes from unconsciousness promises a cure, but it is most cases no more saves than an analysis of the waters of a sinking ship saves the vessel. The ancient principle of purgation of evil has now become a kind of curiosity in which a mind takes delight in its mental spewings after the fashion of the dog described in Sacred Scripture who 'returns again to his vomit' (Proverbs 26: 11)."
