  • [Catholic Caucus] Saint John Cantius, Confessor (Gueranger)

    10/19/2017 10:22:55 PM PDT · by CMRosary
    White Double KENTY, the humble village of Silesia which witnessed the birth of St. John, owes its celebrity entirely to him. The canonization of this holy priest, who in the fifteenth century had illustrated the university of Cracow by his virtues and science, was the last hope of expiring Poland. It took place in the year 1767. Two years earlier, it was at the request of this heroic nation that Clement XIII had issued the first decree sanctioning the celebration of the feast of the sacred Heart. When enrolling John Cantius among the saints, the magnanimous Pontiff expressed in...

    8-tonne Tiangong-1 not expected to pose threat when it re-enters Earth’s atmosphere between now and AprilA defunct, yacht-sized Chinese space lab is expected to fall out of orbit and crash to Earth in the coming months. China launched the eight-tonne Tiangong-1 satellite in 2011. Tiangong means "Heavenly Palace" in Chinese. The satellite, which is 12 metres long and 3.3 metres in diameter, was designed to test technology for a future space station. The Chinese space program used it for a series of spacecraft docking tests and visits from astronauts. The space lab broke down and stopped functioning in March 2016....

    On November 7 the world will mark a grim anniversary: One hundred years since the small but devout faction of Marxists called the Bolsheviks lost a popular election. It was the last one Russia would see for 70 years. Instead of accepting the peopleÂ’s will, the Bolsheviks overthrew that countryÂ’s fledgling provisional government. That revolution unleashed a nightmare: a vicious civil war, the mass killing of clergy and religious believers, the slaughter of businessmen and landlords, and the building of concentration camps, 20 years before Hitler. In a single day, the Bolsheviks were known to boast, they killed more dissidents...

    'This is something new for CSE,' says the agency, which is trying to shed its old reputationCanada's electronic spy agency says it is taking the "unprecedented step" of releasing one of its own cyber defence tools to the public, in a bid to help companies and organizations better defend their computers and networks against malicious threats. The Communications Security Establishment (CSE) rarely goes into detail about its activities — both offensive and defensive — and much of what is known about the agency's activities have come from leaked documents obtained by U.S. National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden and published...

  • ‘I’m Not That Guy,’ Weinstein Blubbered to Employees

    Harvey Weinstein sobbed and pleaded, “I’m not that guy. I’m not that guy,” to an assistant after the first bombshell article on the movie mogul’s sexual harassment allegations came out, according to a new report. But his employees were the ones weeping when a second huge story came out days later — containing rape accusations and audio of Weinstein admitting to groping a model — as they realized they may have unwittingly enabled the predatory producer, the New Yorker reports. “People were having a wave of retroactive memories,” an unnamed staffer tells the magazine. “Some of the stories were within...

    The Word of God Msgr. Charles Pope • October 18, 2017 • We continue to read from St. Paul’s Letter to the Romans in daily Mass. In today’s reading, we learn that we are justified by faith apart from the Law. The debates about faith and works are often the result of varied interpretations of today’s text.One of the sources of confusion is a failure to understand the deeper point: that we are saved by Jesus Christ. It is by being put into a saving relationship with Him that we are saved. This relationship changes us; it affects what...

    HMCS Chicoutimi crossed the Pacific Ocean and arrived in Yokosuka, Japan on Tuesday evening. Major Travis Smyth confirmed the sub's arrival. The sub's presence "underscores the commitment of the Canadian Armed Forces to the Asia-Pacific region," he said in an emailed statement. This also marks the first time that any of Canada's four Victoria-class submarines have ever entered the Asia-Pacific region. The overseas mission is scheduled to last until March 2018

    Australian gun rights advocates have raised $21,000 to help a farmer get back his firearms and gun license, which were taken after after he used an unloaded gun to protect his family against a knife-wielding trespasser. David Dunstan encountered the trespasser, who was armed with a knife and wooden club, at the back door of his Riverine property in the eastern state of New South Wales last month, according to a GoFundMe page set up to raise money for the farmer. Dunstan then grabbed his unloaded .22-caliber rifle and was able to ward off the man and convince him to...

    WILLIAMSBURG, Va. -- A transgender woman was denied access to Busch Gardens theme park in Williamsburg because a park security guard deemed her skirt a costume. Bria Gibson's girlfriend was born a male, but identifies as female. The couple went to the park on Saturday to enjoy the Halloween season's Howl-o-Scream event. But their day took a turn as soon as they reached the park's security gate. There, a security guard looked at her girlfriend, who was wearing an ankle length skirt, and began shaking his head, according to Gibson.

    Boeing has disclosed that the expected service life extension program for the U.S. Navy’s F/A-18E/F Super Hornets could include stealth features and improved avionics and mission systems in addition to a more general airframe overhaul. This more comprehensive update would not only keep the aircraft safely flying at least until 2040, but could potentially make them a capable, but low-cost alternative in many scenarios compared to the service’s up-coming F-35C Joint Strike Fighters or any future sixth generation design. On Oct. 17, 2017, Mark Sears, director of Boeing’s Super Hornet service life modification (SLM) division, told Aviation Week that the...

    In the wake of the ever-unfolding series of accusations and accounts of sexual abuse at the hands of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, perhaps the biggest scandal has been that Weinstein’s abuse is constantly described as having been an “open secret” in Hollywood for years, maybe decades. While the extent of Weinstein’s monstrous action may not have been available to everyone, again and again we hear from people who had “heard the rumors” about Harvey for years. Yet through a combination of fear, silence, and active accomplices, he was able to continue operating in the film business for years. And while...

    Former President George W. Bush appears to have discovered a new pastime: virtue-signaling. On Thursday, the 43rd president piously delivered a full beat down on President Trump and the populist and economic nationalist movement that elected him. Bush even traveled from Dallas to New York City to deliver it—just to make sure that nobody in Manhattan missed his message, which basically amounted to: I’m a good guy, unlike you-know-who. So look: I just dumped on Donald Trump! Please like me now, finally! Yes, this is the same Bush who kept silent during the Obama years. But now that a Republican...

    Pretty embarrassing. And yet they’re not embarrassed. Many of those same overpaid, underperforming tax-exempt sinecure-holders are now demanding that Trump be stopped. Why? Because, as his critics have noted in a rising chorus of hysteria, Trump represents “an existential threat to conservatism.” Let that sink in. Conservative voters are being scolded for supporting a candidate they consider conservative because it would be bad for conservatism? And by the way, the people doing the scolding? They’re the ones who’ve been advocating for open borders, and nation-building in countries whose populations hate us, and trade deals that eliminated jobs while enriching their...

    A man who authorities say fell under the influence of the Islamic State group was convicted Wednesday of plotting to behead a conservative American blogger for organizing a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest. Jurors found David Wright guilty of all charges, including conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization and conspiracy to commit acts of terrorism transcending national boundaries. The 28-year-old from Everett, Massachusetts, faces up to life in prison when he’s sentenced in December. Federal officials called Wright’s conviction a victory for America in its fight against terrorism.
