Please pray..

Greetings from Notre Dame! First, I thank you for your prayers, and your part in the witness for God and Life that we bore over the last 7 weeks here at Notre Dame. But we have more to do here at Notre Dame, and there are some things you can do to further this controversy.
Although Obama has come and gone - and Notre Dame has thrown her honor to the ground like a brazen harlot - this battle is far from over. People are still in jail; Fr. Jenkins still needs to lose his job; President Obama must be resisted in his plans to turn Catholic and Religious hospitals and doctors into his agents of death - and we are staring at a small hill of bills to pay. Everyone has been bailed out of jail - except two courageous men. While Obama spoke, over 40 brave souls were in jail or police custody. Among those praying, and arrested, was Miss Norma McCorvey, the "Jane Roe" of Roe vs. Wade. Notre Dame arrested the faithful, and honored the wicked. This is something for which they must give an account to God. This bitter irony will be a part of the discussion for years to come. Think of it; Catholics and Evangelicals behind bars for defending Life and Justice; Obama honored while he betrays justice and slays the innocent.
As I said, two courageous men are still in jail - until June 8th...nearly three weeks from now! - for their peaceful, prayerful witness against Notre Dame's treachery. They refuse to post bail; they actually want to sit in jail as a witness against Notre Dame's shameful actions.
They are: Arnold Matheson, age 82, of Poughkeepsie, NY; and Robert Buchta, age 56 of Center Reach, Long Island. God forgive Notre Dame! Their quiet witness is a fierce rebuke to those who perpetrated this perversion. Please pray for them. And I ask you to take a moment and send them a letter of encouragement. Let them know that they are heroes, and that you have called Fr. Jenkins to drop the charges against them.
Write to: Arnold Matheson C/o St. Joseph County Jail 401 W. Sample St. South Bend, IN 46601 Robert Buchta C/o St. Joseph County Jail 401 W. Sample St. South Bend, IN 46601 Next, call Fr. Jenkins office, and politely demand that the charges against these brave men be dismissed. It is an OUTRAGE and a SCANDAL that these men are behind bars at the behest of Notre Dame. The Main switchboard is: 574-631-5000 Fr. Jenkins office phone number is: 574-631-3903 Call Fr. Jenkins right away, and ask him to drop the charges against his fellow Catholics who are sitting in jail right now at his orders.

What, why, hmmm? Oh yea, Obama is in office.

A good way to try to destroy an enemy is from the inside. Try to get your people in powerful
places within the structure

Meet Your Vatican Ambassador
Here you have it folks, your new ambassador to the Vatican.
WASHINGTON (AP) — A Hispanic Roman Catholic theologian who advised Barack Obama's presidential campaign is the Obama administration's choice to serve as U.S. ambassador to the Vatican.
The White House announced Wednesday it plans to nominate Miguel H. Diaz, an associate professor of theology at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University in Collegeville, Minn., for the post.
Diaz, 45, a Cuban-American, was a member of the Obama campaign's Catholic advisory board. Diaz was among 26 Catholics who signed a statement supporting the nomination of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, a Catholic whose support for abortion rights was criticized by conservative Catholics.
Diaz, while ostensibly pro-life, has been a vocal supporter of Obama and Sebelius. AP continues.
In an interview with Catholic News Service at Obama's inauguration, Diaz said he was looking forward "to moving beyond the politics of fear to the politics of hope." He said Obama was "committed to working" with people who defend "life in the womb" and deeply respects people who hold positions he does not agree with."Wherever we can, we should advance life at all stages," Diaz said.Reached at his home Wednesday, Diaz read a brief statement expressing gratitude for the opportunity and saying, "I wish to be a diplomatic bridge between our nation and the Holy See, and if confirmed by the U.S. Senate, I will continue the work of my predecessors and build on 25 years of excellent relations with the Holy See."He declined to answer questions about his positions on issues, saying it would be inappropriate before his confirmation hearing.President Obama continues to build his Vichy Catholic government that pretends to be against abortion while supporting those who support it.
Update: Sorry, I just couldn't resist posting this when I saw this. Diaz received his PhD from Notre Dame. Thanks again Notre Dame. Thanks a lot. (From CMR)

Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan

Some great writings/quotes from Archbishop Dolan;

"St. John Vianney wrote that the man of sanctity is even more conscious of the dark side of himself than he is of the grace and mercy of the Lord. So the only way we can move toward the Lord is by being very realistically conscious of the things that sink us."

Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan
To Whom Shall We Go? Lessons from the Apostle Peter, Our Sunday Visitor Publishing

"The starting point of spiritual growth, the first step to discipleship, is humble recognition of and profound gratitude for God’s love for us. As the Beloved Disciple teaches, " In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world…not that we loved God but that he loved us.’(1 John 4:9-10)"
Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan
Called to be Holy, Our Sunday Visitor Publishing


I can't help reflecting upon these teachings of the Church as stated in the catechism.
After the unity of the human race was shattered by sin God at once sought to save humanity part by part. The covenant with Noah after the flood gives expression to the principle of the divine economy toward the "nations," in other words, toward men grouped "in their lands, each with [its] own LANGUAGE, by their families, in their nations."
This state of division into many nations is at once cosmic, social, and religious. It is intended to limit the pride of fallen humanity, united only in its perverse ambition to forge its own unity as at Babel. But, because of sin, both polytheism and the idolatry of the nation and of its rulers constantly threaten this provisional economy with the perversion of paganism.

It is scary how today's society says it wants unity, wants God, wants everyone to have freedom, but, at what price? Do those people who
want unity and freedom together, understand that their interpretation of the words will contradict one another somewhere down the line?
Sure, they want the freedom to do what they please, but their neighbor may not be in unity with that freedom when it affects their life in a negative way. Pretty soon, unity has been broken and someones pride gets trampled upon.
People want to say that all religions should get along with each other, they should "coexist" as those dreaded bumper stickers show.
We know that all religions cannot "coexist", they all do not lead to the same God.
People can try to coexist. Religions cannot.
We have replaced God; with things, with ideologies, with empathy, with feelings. We do as we feel, we think as we feel, we do as we feel.
We once again make ourselves as God.
As long as we are not in unity with God above all, we will continue to forge a tower of Babel that will be destroyed.

True sacrifice

This is the kind of stuff that the main stream media doesn't want you to see. I am surprised that the LA Times picked it up.
This is the kind of sacrificial love that our current government administration is fighting against.
