    Karlo Broussard does a very good job of explaining the sacraments without the distortions or misrepresentations of Protestants who never even walked the earth until more than 14 centuries after Christ established the sacraments.

    My Failing Memory | 3.24.2013 | vladimir998
    Freepers, I need help finding the title of a film. The film was from the 1970s, a crime drama (perhaps a TV movie), in which a police officer/detective who was not respected by his superiors was given a case they thought he couldn't solve. He found the suspect and chased the man (in his underwear or half-dressed IIRC) into an elevator where they had a tense standoff at gun point. In the elevator they talked, and the cop realized the man was not guily (IIRC). They worked together to get out of the elevator and were both killed by waiting...

    On the night of December 24, Roman Catholics and members of several other Christian denominations celebrated Christmas Eve. In the late hours of December 24, the largest Roman Catholic cathedral in Russia – the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin – was full of people. With an exclamation of the priest, “Christ is born!”, which was joyfully repeated by the people, the holiday mass began.

    I remember that Bin Laden was said to have a bodyguard who would kill him if he was ever about to fall into US hands. Maybe that's how he died because I don't think Obama said our forces actually killed him.

    Fox News ^ | February 27, 2011
    I believe the reporter's name is Mike Tobin. He was the reporter who said last night on Geraldo's show that the thugs had hatred in their eyes. He said the crowd was hateful again today. The thugs started chanting against Fox News, blocking the camera and then, just a couple of seconds after the on screen image of the thugs at work was replaced with one of the occupied cap. building rotunda, the reporter could clearly be heard saying one thug had just hit him!

    Te Deum laudamus! ^ | July 6, 2010 | Diane M. Korzeniewski
    More interesting news out of the Holy See today with July 6, 2010 appointments. Pope Benedict XVI has added to Archbishop Raymond L. Burke's duties. Last October, he was named a member of the Congregation for Bishops, and today, the Holy Father added him as a member of the Congregation for Divine Worship (CDW). This on top of being the Prefect for the Apostolic Signatura! Anyone who thought he was "promoted out" of the US, is hopefully re-assessing that view. His Excellency is in some very influential positions which will only grow with time.

    CARM ^ | June 6, 2010 | Vladimir998
    This is a very interesting and spirited debate. Quite honestly Sungenis is taking Slick to the cleaners, but Slick does a very good job of representing the irrational, ahitorical, everyman-is-a-pope-so-you-can-make-it-up-as-you-go-along Evangelical theology that is so common and popular these days.

    Fight Breaks Out At Catholic Festival Fights broke out during the annual Feast of the Assumption pilgrimage in Carey Sunday afternoon at the Our Lady of Consolation Shrine. The religious event is supposed to bring thousands of people together to honor the Virgin Mary, which falls on every Aug. 15. The annual event was interuppted after a group, known as the "Minister of Annoyance," told the numerous Catholics in attendance to not believe in God and disown their faith. It sparked a fight between the group and a few teenagers. Carey police were called and arrested three teens and one...
