Belgian Brothers to allow euthanasia for mentally ill patients
Well, really...instead of driving out demons (some of which are in your head) Jesus should have just euthanized everybody who wasn't "normal" in the eyes of the world. The "Brothers of Charity" will have to change their name to the "Brothers of No Charity."
The euthanasia proponents always claim there are safeguards in place, but these things (like abortion) have a way of becoming killing on demand. The worst part is that someone in his/her right mind who chooses this is likely to enter eternity under a portal that reads, "Abandon All Hope Ye Who Enter Here."
Remember the Bible verse from Isaiah offering a warning to those who call good evil and evil good? That same warning is recalled frequently in the New Testament. St. Paul writes in his second letter to Timothy:
For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions. (2 Timothy 4:3)Peter also blew the warning trumpet when he wrote:

Benedict set a precedent that let the genie out of the bottle. Will papal resignation become the rule rather than the exception?
Hilary White, the Rome reporter for LifeSiteNews, has a chilling article at The Remnant predicting that the Vatican manipulators have exhausted the usefulness of Pope Francis and will move next for a Parolin conclave following another resignation. Here's just a bit of her assessment:
Bergoglio himself has been recorded saying that he thought his pontificate would last about 4 years. And here we are. We know that certain people put him in place for certain reasons. He was to accomplish some very particular tasks and I think he has done so. I think overall, his job was to complete the demolition project of the radical revolutionaries of the Vaticantwoist project; that is, the total reconstruction of the Catholic Church along the lines of their vision.

Nash Farm Battlefield museum to close after commissioner requests removal of Confederate flags
|1913 Gettysburg reunion unites patriots from South and North -- Shall we black out the Confederate flag from history books?|
We truly are living in George Orwell's 1984 where history is dropped down the memory hole when it's considered politically incorrect, and every citizen must be brainwashed or shamed until he will spout the current lie as truth. And so, the statues of southern generals are coming down in New Orleans, state symbols are being purged of the Confederate flag, and any symbol of Southern pride must be destroyed or banned.

I often buy Catholic books for my grandchildren. When I saw The First Christians: The Acts of Apostles for Children by Marigold Hunt, I snapped it up since Acts is one of my favorite books of the Bible. It is also the perfect one for children to begin with because it's such an adventure story describing the apostles travels, persecution, miracles, and shipwrecks. What could capture a child's imagination more easily?
Before I started reading the book, I noticed that it was not a new publication, but was originally published in 1939 by Sheed and Ward, a bastion of orthodoxy in the old days. Frank Sheed and Maisie Ward, were in fact, well known for their "soapbox preaching" as members of the Catholic Evidence Guild which presented Catholic teaching in public in an easily understandable style. They were frequent lecturers at Speakers Corner in Hyde Park, London.

Solicitous concern over the purity of doctrine reflects the truest love of God and neighbor, since doctrine, as with any of the Ten Commandments, is not an ideal that may be watered down or dismissed to suit ones fancy, but an eternal command set in stone for man's sanctification. In the same way a healthcare expert does not tolerate poison in the diet, so a true priest will never tolerate poison in the spiritual diet. It has to be pure, which means it has to be clear, without which it is poison.
But Pope Francis has now come out and slammed conservative Catholics who earnestly maintain that purity of doctrine be preserved. Concerning such people, the pope said in his Friday morning homily: "They are fanatics about things that are not clear, such as these fanatics who go about there, sowing discord in order to divide the Christian community."

I am a free market capitalist. I don't believe in censoring literature and music except in extreme cases such as public defilement of religious icons for the sake of sensationalism. Other than that, I think the consumer should be free to enhance or destroy his life as he chooses. If you want to fill you head with mushy erotic novels instead of history and philosophy and religion, you have the free will that allows you to do that and a government that makes it possible. If you want to listen to discordant filth set in motion with vulgar costumes and dancing, that too is your choice.

Nevertheless, Fatima represents an urgent message for the world confirmed by a massive miracle of the sun seen by over 70,000 people. Some weren't even at the site, but saw the dancing sun from miles away. Not only that, but the miracle was prophesied months before it happened and many who came to scoff, including atheists, were converted on the spot.
Other apparitions are associated with miracles. Many confirmed miraculous healings occur at Lourdes, for example. But the miracle of the sun at Fatima is unique in the history of the Church. It was publicly announced beforehand as a message so that people might believe.The miracle set Our Lady's call there to penance in reparation for sin in bold relief. Listening to and obeying her message is crucial if we really desire peace in our world.
