NEWS & VIEWS>with a Catholic slant
Failure of Religious Freedom Amendment just another example of the Decline and Fall of America
Haven't we been here before? Like over 200 years ago? Nevertheless, with the Godless administration today leave it to the politicians to snuff out prayer in the schools. The debate will continue, but late in the week they shot down any chance for prayer being resurrected in the schools. Think about it, our currency carries the motto: "In God we trust." Perhaps the leaders of this nation with its legislature, should look closely at the money we pay them, so we won't waste any more money debating this issue and recognize God as our All!

Rather than giving the devil his due, let's give the devil the dead-end by bringing exorcisms back!
The Holy Father's Wednesday audience at Paul VI Hall touched on the fact that excorcisms, once a staple of the Church, have all but been forgotten. No wonder satan has gained so much headway. One of the Church's remaining authorized exorcists makes a point about the fact that so many in the clergy don't have a clue what exorcisms are about and that Christ never intended for these exercises, to keep the devil at bay, be abandoned.

Clinton living up to moniker "Slick Willy" with latest push to cowtow to China
Is any one surprised that Bill Clinton is courting the Chinese with a passion? Given his miserable track record for amorality, abortion, and an overall disregard for anything sacred or traditional, he is trying to railroad through a favored nation status with no regard for those brave souls in Tiananmen Square in Beijing. He's shamelessly licking their boots, while his vice president lobbies for China dollars but is quick to forget it. What about the Church in China? Are they willing to establish diplomacy with the Vatican and allow Roman Catholics to worship openly? Until that happens, let's not hear any bull---- about giving China any kind of favored status!!!

Operation Rescue just revving up as police arrest Flip Benham in Orlando
If pro-abortionists and police thought the music being played outside an abortuary was so loud they had to arrest Operation Rescue leader Flip Benham from Dallas, they haven't heard nothing yet!!! Undaunted, the Rescue hordes that will descend on Disney World this weekend, with or without their leader, will be a force to be reckoned with in their stance against Gay Days at the Disney amusement park.

Holy See reasserts God's laws on reproduction over man's laws
As the scientific technology continues to advance "genetic engineering" in human reproduction, the Vatican, through the director of the bioethics institute at the Catholic University in Rome, strongly defended the Church's position against articial methods in an answer to Italian parliament which is debating the issue.

The Unity of the Blessed Trinity:|
Three Persons in One.
Sunday is the Feast of the Holy Trinity, the traditional feast sandwiched between Pentecost and the feast of Corpus Christi and the day we pay homage to the Triune Divinity, reminding us of our faith in the Blessed Trinity when we make the sign of the cross and honor the Holy Trinity at the doxology or Gloria Patri. All the sacraments are are administered in the name of the Blessed Trinity. For the liturgy, readings, explanation and meditation for Trinity Sunday as well as the feasts of Saint Boniface on First Friday and Saint Norbert on First Saturday, along with the first Saturday observance of the Blessed Virgin Mary on Saturday since February 21st, click on LITURGY FOR PENTECOST WEEKEND
Man overboard! Man the lifeboats, it's time to rescue the drowning souls!
In this weekend's editorial, we bring you the second part of the editorial begun yesterday in which we question the media manipulators who have tainted our youth so, and how these young souls have hit the iceberg of cold-heartedness, plunging their ship into the icy and swirling waters of materialism with no hope of rescue unless we are willing to come to their aid by being God's lifeboats, lifebuoys and lifevests. That is the subject of this weekend's commentary What's wrong with this picture?!? part two or...Man the lifeboats! Click on this weekend's CATHOLIC PewPOINT
There is no greater mystery than the Blessed Trinity for there are no limits on God!
In her column this week, Sister Mary Lucy Astuto, brings home how the Trinity is truly a mystery and cannot be explained by man, no matter how hard someone tries for the finite mind cannot fathom the Divine. We must accept on faith that God is Three Persons in One Being. God has indicated it, we believe it, that settles it! For her column, The Greatest Mystery, click on GETTING TO THE HEART OF THE MATTER
