Video – Face of Pro-Life #88: Susan Boyce on Health Care in CT Pt 1

Face of Pro-Life #88 -Corinn Dahm and Susan Boyce on CT Health Care ( 30min) >>> Play

Ave Maria!

Susan Boyce outlines with Corinn Dahm the health care plan for Connecticut that is very similar to the enormously unpopular plan proposed by President Obama that failed on a federal level.  The mass media is not talking about this but it is already passed by the state congress who even overrode a veto by Governor Rell. Listen as Susan itemizes the many problems of the plan including, Obesity Task Forces, more bureaucracy, more taxes, less privacy and freedom, automatic enrollment at least once a year and usually more often. And the plan does not do any of the needed improvements like law suit reform that would truly reduce medical costs.  All of these extra costs are being proposed when the state budget in has record deficits.

Ave Maria!

Feb 28 – Homily – Fr Angelo: Transforming Transfiguration

Sunday, February 28th, 2010

Homily #100228 ( 16min) Play – Fr. Angelo Geiger preaches on today’s Gospel of the Transfiguration of the Lord on Mount Tabor in front of Peter, James and John. Jesus does this in order to strengthen the faith of his disciples so that they could survive the scandal of the Crucifixion. We need to take note that only one of these three disciples remained with Jesus at the foot of the Cross. So we need to make sure that we fully apprehend all the revelations that we are given through our Holy Faith, especially Our Lord’s presence in the Eucharist.

Snake Oil and Circus Tricks

Friday, February 26th, 2010

Here is latest from Father Thomas Loya.  It is a rather brazen, if not unusual example of what has become part of the “tradition” for many of the American propagators of that pungent and turbid concoction that is mislabeled Theology of the Body.

Content Warning.

With defenders like Father Thomas Loya, does Christopher West need critics?

Second Sorrowful Mystery

Friday, February 26th, 2010

One Minute Meditation

The Second Sorrowful Mystery

THE SCOURGING AT THE PILLAR

  • Jesus is taken before the High Priest where He is falsely accused, buffeted and insulted.
  • The Jewish leaders take Jesus before Pilate, for only he can impose the death penalty.
  • The robber, Barabbas, is preferred to Jesus.
  • Pilate can “find no cause in Him”, yet to appease the Jews, he orders Jesus to be scourged.
  • The scourge is made of leather thongs to which are attached small sharp bones.
  • Jesus is bound to a pillar and cruelly scourged until His whole body is covered with deep wounds.
  • The Lamb of God offers His suffering for the sins of mankind.
  • Jesus suffers so much in His sacred flesh to satisfy, especially, for sins of the flesh.
  • The prophesy of Isiah is fulfilled: “He was wounded for our iniquities, He was bruised for our sins.”
  • Father, by the merits of Jesus in this painful scourging, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
