  • [Catholic Caucus] Saint Peter's Chair at Antioch (Gueranger)

    02/21/2018 9:02:19 PM PST · by CMRosary
    White Greater Double WE ARE CALLED UPON, a second time, to honor St. Peter’s Chair: first, it was his Pontificate in Rome; today it is his Episcopate at Antioch. The seven years spent by the Prince of the Apostles in the second of these cities were the grandest glory she ever had; and they are too important a portion of the life of St. Peter to be passed by without being noticed in the Christian Cycle. Three years had elapsed since our Lord’s Ascension. The Church had already been made fruitful by martyrdom, and from Jerusalem she had spread...
  • [Catholic Caucus] Saint Peter's Chair at Rome (Gueranger)

    White Greater Double THE ARCHANGEL GABRIEL told Mary, in the Annunciation, that the Son who was to be born of her should be a King, and that of his Kingdom there should be no end. Hence, when the Magi were led from the East to the Crib of Jesus, they proclaimed it in Jerusalem, that they came to seek a King. But this new Empire needed a Capital; and whereas the King, who was to fix his throne in it was, according to the eternal decrees, to re-ascend into heaven, it was necessary that the visible character of his...

    Avi Assaf, who was wounded when a terrorist opened fire in a market in Petah Tikva Thursday afternoon, described to Arutz Sheva how he chased and subdued the terrorist despite his injuries. Six people were wounded in the terrorist attack. "I heard shots and people shouting 'terrorist! terrorist!' The terrorist ran and I chased him for 2-3 blocks with four other people," said Assaf, who is currently being treated at Belinson Hospital in Petah Tikvah. The terrorist entered a store for sewing machines, and Assaf followed him. "He took two screwdrivers and tried to stab me. I grabbed a chair...

    New York Magazine ^ | August 19, 2016 | Jonathan Chait
    Give a man a reputation as an early riser, said Mark Twain, and he can sleep til noon. Hillary Clinton finds herself in the opposite situation: She has a reputation for venality the merits of which we can set aside momentarily that forces her to a higher ethical standard. Her inadequate response to the conflicts of interest inherent in the Clinton Foundation show that she is not meeting that standard, and has not fully grasped the severity of her reputational problem. The purpose of the Clinton Foundation is to leverage Clinton fame into charitable donations. That purpose has...

    Chalk it up to a small world or to a tangled web, but Uranium One, the Russian-owned uranium mining company at the center of a recent scandal involving the Clintons and a close Canadian business partner, has lobbied the State Department through a firm co-founded by Hillary Clintons 2016 presidential campaign chairman. Senate records show that The Podesta Group has lobbied the State Department on behalf of Uranium One once in 2012, when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, and once in 2015. Uranium One paid The Podesta Group $40,000 to lobby the State Department, the Senate, the National...

    Hello Freepers, I am looking to buy a new office chair and was looking for recommendations/suggestions, and endorsements. Advice about chairs to avoid is welcome too. I don't have any odd requirements to speak of. I just want a chair that swivels, rocks and has some height adjustment. I am about 6'3", and weigh 207 lbs so I'd probably want a "big/tall" version.Obviously I want comfort and good ergonomics. I posted this in the "computer" topic because I figured those of you computer guys/gals that spend copious amounts of time in front of a machine would have unique knowledge. Also,...

    Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ) rose from his seat on Tuesday during a congressional hearing into the Affordable Care Acts problematic roll-out. He accused his Republican colleagues in the House of dishonestly seeking to identify the problems with the ACA because they would prefer to see it repealed entirely. Pascrell began by insisting that, even though Democrats opposed Medicare Part D in the Bush Era, they worked to make sure that the program was a success. He became animated as he said that Democrats put aside their opposition to Bush in order to make a policy objective work for the good...

    Another day, another story of a brutal attack by Arabs against Jews. And as usual, most news outlets will not cover this news. A large-bodied Arab man attacked an elderly Jew in Jerusalem's Old City last Saturday. The victim's daughter, Tali Hoffman, told Arutz Sheva that her father was making his way to Shacharit prayers, as he does every Sabbath, from his home in the Muslim Quarter to the Kotel. When he arrived at HaGay Street, just a few dozen meters from the Kotel, the Arab man stepped out of a falafel shop and tried to knock him down by...
