What will Barry say? Easy to speculate
Against our way of life, he’ll expostulate
For the socialist way
Gay marriage? Okay!
If I watch, I’ll drink Scotch to inoculate

I think expostulation is what spooked the BSA. Father DeCelles has gone on record as saying that the BSA will be gone from St Raymonds if they go gay, he said "no more dealing with the devil."

They’re going to start having a weekly Latin Mass in Latrobe. First and only one in the diocese. I’ll have to check it out.

That’s very cool. I think that its Pope Benedict’s influence that has caused the proliferation of Latin masses. I am so disgusted with the slime that i am seeing thrown at him. It’s just awful.

Do they say the prayer to St Michael after Mass at your church? They say it at daily mass at st james, but not at holy rosary. Fr. DeCelles always says it at the end of Mass.

No, after Mass we all leave. When do they say this, before or after the dismissal and closing hymn?

A lot of our African priests say the Hail Mary during mass after we pray for others. I have seen it with several of them. The whole church joins them. No prayers to St. Michael here.

It is not necessary to watch The Won expostulate tonight. It's the closing night of The Wesminster Dog Show, and they lead off with the Sporting Dogs -- 7 pm Central and 8 PM Eastern.

I'll be watching and rooting for the Golden in memory of my beautiful, departed Max. Yesterday I had an eery experience. I live on 12 acres and I don't see other people's animals here EVER. Yesterday a large dog crossed my backyard TWICE. Max would never have allowed that. The dog was just romping in the snow -- first far from the house and then closer on his 2nd pass. It was like a message, but I don't know from whom, or what it meant. I keep staring out of the window waiting for that phantom dog to return.

it's an excellent prayer, i highly recommend it:

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host - by the Divine Power of God - cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits, who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

I meant to add that the dog show is on the USA channel. In fact the first half is showing this morning — right now. I think that half is also on USA, although it originally aired on CNBC last night. The first half was the Hounds, Toy, NonSporting, and Herding breeds.

Ron Reagan doesn’t do this one, does he? he used to do one of them. i can’t stand that mincing ninny.
another thing that’s going to irk the crap out of me is that SHEMP smith is en route to Rome, i saw on Twitter yesterday. NO WAY can i stomach a nonCatholic homosexual reporting on the Pope’s resignation and replacement.

Thanks. I need to have my knees replaced, and the last thing I need is another dog until I’m well. Yet, I’m already browsing the rescue organizationg websites for another Golden. He was a really big part of our lives.

oh, I know the prayer, even have a statue of St. Michael by my bed. I was having nightmares and Fr. C recommended saying the prayer at bedtime, I did and bought the statue around that time, too...never had another nightmare. When things throw me now and I sense evil...I quote “get behind me, Satan”...and let it go. Works for me.

If a witch arrives at the lawyer’s office after her former lover’s will was read and approved, can all of her claims be immediately rejected because she was hexpostoolated?

that’s great. i bought xshub a st michael medal at the Vatican. i think i’ve FINALLY got a chain that won’t break. i spent a lot of $ on a chain there at the Vatican and it broke relatively quickly, had it repaired, broke again and then bought another one and IT broke. I guess i needed a heavier gauge. The first one was white gold, but i think the sterling will be a bit stronger and i did get a heavier gauge.

yeah with former Cap goalie Jose Theodore [aka THREE OR MORE] in net for FL, and who true to his nickname gave up five goals to the caps. I still actively dislike sidney crosby [and think he’s a latent homo LOL] but i will give you that he is committed to his sport and he works his ass off at it. Ovie does not and i am so disgusted with this current group that i want them to suck so badly the rest of the way through this season so that either GMGM is fired or he finally has to just admit it and blow the team up and reconfigure it. xsteen and i were just discussing it and i said the caps team is a cancer-ridden corpse at this point.

No, his contract ended at the end of the season.The same day Adam Oates, former Cap, entered the hall of fame, he was made Caps coach. i can't fault him all that much, he's the third coach in a yr's time basically. I fault the players. But for instance the other day the practice was OPTIONAL. there should not be any OPTIONAL practices. if we had TORTS as coach, those guys would be busting their behinds every single day. xshub's opinion= they are treating this like a dang country club.

Optional practices allow those who are banged up a little rest. It’s a discretionary thing.

When Scotty Bowman was coaching the Penguins it got so he was not allowed on the ice with the players when they were practicing. Yes, the head coach was banned by the players!

These things go in cycles. You need someone to come in and crack heads every once in a while. Therien did that in Pittsburgh with the current crew.

Alex Semin is doing GREAT in Carolina with Eric Staal. he was a part of our problem last year. Just being excised from the cancerous corpse has freed up him to do well.

One of the churches I like in the next diocese/county has a Filipino priest and parishioners. Not a lot, but it’s noticeable. Very pious people. I went to St. Marys in San Fran when I was out there...nearly 100% Filipino. Big church near downtown, I felt like a giant there.

Penguins/Devils are where it’s at now. The Devils seem to be the only team that can beat the Pens now. They dropped two to them over the weekend.

And one game started with a fistfight. Drop the puck, drop the gloves.

It was indeed a pleasure to see Dr. Ben Carson expostulate while the Great Abominator could do aught but fulminate.



Keep Faith with the Fallen of Benghazi! Let the Obama Regime, for once, tell the Truth!

Fiat Justitia, Ruat Coelum!

Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

58 and partly cloudy-we still need more rain...

Tonight is another Obamarama
To disgust us half to death
As he says he plans to steal
All but our very last breath

His minions don’t expostulate
Because he won’t listen at all-
They’re finding hiding places
To go to when he takes the fall

Where they can live in solitude
And hope to stay out of jail
And soon write a bestseller
About their idol’s epic fail...
