Do These Two Things Every Day if You Want to Go to Heaven!

St. Robert Bellarmine preached on hell.
Do you want to go to heaven? There are two things that will help you make that goal: love God and meditate on the four last things: death judgment, heaven or hell.

 First, as St. John Bosco always told his boys, "Love God!" Isn't that the same thing Jesus told anyone who asked Him about the most important commandments? "The first is this: Love God with your whole heart, your whole mind, your whole soul, and your whole strength!"

But what does that mean? What is love? So many people say they love this or that. Certainly many people love their gadgets. They put their entire heart, soul, mind, and strength into playing games and expanding their list of friends. They spend most waking hours glued to their Ipads, Iphones, and computers. That's where they invest the most time and energy. How many are chasing Pokemon right now? Is he a little god to be pursued and followed and "loved?" How many are addicted zombie-like to their little boxes? Are these gadgets the new gods seducing us?

Catholics protest at Tim Kaine’s parish: If priest won’t ‘instruct parishioners’ on Church teaching, we will

Fr. Tom Collins Outs the Democrats as the REAL KKK

Democrats public housing project
In spite of all that Hillary Clinton is doing to use the KKK to slander Donald Trump, the raw data of history shows that the Democratic Party has never really lost its arrogant patronizing attitude toward the African-American community, which has been largely confined to the welfare state plantation by Democratic policies for over sixty years. Check out blackgenocide.org for some insight as to how the Democratic Party and its agenda of:

U.S. Medicine in the Culture of Death: The Murder of Israel Stinson

Hospital puts Israel Stinson to death after parents bring him back to U.S.

All these parents wanted was to get little Israel stabilized so they could bring him home and care for him there. Instead, the hospital agreed to accept the little boy for treatment, but apparently always intended to put him to death when he was back on American soil.

Wow! He got better care in Guatemala. This is what American medicine has become --

Guest Post: Another Assault on Religious Speech and Judicial Child Abuse

Editor's note: SB 1172 does not address pastors per se. It forbids all mental health providers, licensed counselors, etc. from engaging in reparative therapy or other efforts to help children overcome same-sex attraction. A number of other states (here, here, here, and here) have also introduced legislation banning conversion therapy. This definitely affects Christian mental health professionals among whom are pastors who are also licensed mental health professional. Not only that, but it stands to reason that if counseling minors to avoid acting on same-sex attraction is unethical and abusive as implied in all the laws, how can the state not intervene to protect the young from pastors and Church representatives who dare to commit the crime of telling children to resist feelings of sexual attraction toward same-sex friends? These laws which are proliferating around the country are the spearhead that will initially target and limit both the free speech of minors and mental health professionals, but will ultimately be expanded to engulf pastors, youth leaders, etc. Remember when abortion was only legal for the "hard cases?" That's how the liberal tyrants always begin and they always use children to accomplish their goals. The reality is that the gay and lesbian community wants to recruit children because it is their principal way of expanding. Even their language indicates how they prey on children. Consider the terms "chicken" and "chicken hawk." The state has become a pimp for gay activists who want no limits on their ability to recruit children into their perverted lifestyle.

Mark Shea: The Internet's Donald Trump

More G.K. Chesterton, less Mark Shea
 Dave Griffey makes the case that Mark Shea is simply an internet version of Donald Trump, a man he routinely castigates. I don't usually point people to Patheos, but this article is so on target about Mark Shea, I had to link.
How can I be so heartless and judgmental to compare Mark to Trump? Or compare others on Social Media to Trump? Easy. I read. I listen to Trump and what people criticize him for, and then visit various Facebook pages, including Mark’s, and I see no difference. Trump, beyond the policies he advocates – when we can figure them out – is brash, crude, rude, vulgar, sinful, mean spirited, ill-informed and simply a lousy person because of how he interacts with others and treats others who dare disagree with him.
So how is that different than Mark, or even Mark’s own followers? Or the followers on any one of a million sites?

Our job as Catholics: To implement Luke 17:21 -- "The Kingdom of God is in the midst of you."

Rush Limbaugh jokes about "low information voters." We've all seen videos of (presumable) voters who talk about Obama paying for free goodies out of his "stash." And then there are the on-campus interviews of college students who can't name a single Founding Father, but can tell you minute details about Beyonce. We're in trouble, folks.

Which is one reason I was excited to receive an email from a friend in Front Royal, VA describing an initiative he and several friends are spearheading: The Front Royal Catholics Civic Education Group. they have a website and Facebook page.

George Soros and Pope Francis -- Strange Bedfellows or Birds of a Feather?

Wikileaks published a number of emails showing how George Soros uses supporters within the
Money talks, even at the Vatican. Now that we have
Laudato Si, what shall we do next from our marxist agenda?
Vatican to influence Pope Francis. It's not a pretty story and, in fact, it should give every Catholic pause. When a socialist monster like Soros is influencing how the Vatican approaches the moral issues of the day, WATCH OUT! LifeSiteNews and The Remnant both wrote stories showing how Soros money is being used to influence what comes out of Rome. Here are some excerpts from The Remnant story:
