  • [Catholic Caucus] The Exaltation of the Holy Cross (Gueranger)

    09/13/2017 9:22:25 PM PDT · by CMRosary · 1 replies
    Red Greater Double “THROUGH thee the precious Cross is honored and worshiped throughout the world.” Thus did St. Cyril of Alexandria apostrophize our Lady on the morrow of that great day, which saw her divine maternity vindicated at Ephesus. Eternal Wisdom has willed that the Octave of Mary’s birth should be honored by the celebration of this Feast of the triumph of the holy Cross. The Cross indeed is the standard of God’s armies, whereof Mary is the Queen; it is by the Cross that she crushes the serpent’s head, and wins so many victories over error, and over...

    After being held at Mar-a-Lago for 60 years, and Donald J. Trump being gracious to in hosting them for the better part of those years the Red Cross has decided to move this year's ball to another venue. My wife and I (who have met the president there) got the email a little while ago, which read in part: We originally decided to keep the International Ball at Mar-a-Lago because it was the lower-cost venue in the area, and because we have held numerous successful fundraisers there over the past 60 years. However, our decision to hold the event at...

    East Central University said they will remove crosses, Bibles and other religious symbols from a campus chapel to appease a bunch of out-of-town agitators. Its unclear when the Oklahoma school will commence with the Christian cleansing of the Kathryn P. Boswell Memorial Chapel. The chapel opened in 1957. We will continue to use the building as we always have, for all faiths, ECU President Katricia Pierson said in a statement to the Ada News. We do not want to presume to embrace one faith over another. We support all cultures and attempt to make them comfortable when they are here....

    The Cross is a Fruit-Bearing Tree -- A Homily for the Second Sunday of Lent Msgr. Charles Pope * February 20, 2016 * The second Sunday of Lent always features the Transfiguration. The first reason for this is that the trek up Mt. Tabor was one of the stops Jesus Himself made with Peter, James, and John on His final journey to Jerusalem. It is commonly held that Jesus did this to prepare His apostles for the difficult days ahead. There's a line from an old spiritual that says, "Sometimes I'm up, sometimes I'm down, sometimes I'm almost to...

But, the law is the law. The lawsuit was filed in 2016 by the notorious Freedom From Religion Foundation and the American Humanist Association on behalf of four Pensacola citizens The judge pointed out...

    Park service invokes separation of church and state: The shining symbols on the Knob will stay muted unless NPS and Lions Club come to agreement. MILFORD The cross and star that shone for year over Milford, from high on the hill known as "The Knob," may have to go. The Knob used to be private land. But in October 2015 it was transferred to Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area under the National Park Service (NPS), which comes under federal regulations. Displays of religious symbols on government property are not allowed, although special use permits can be granted. Up...

"We are happy that the city divested itself of this religious symbol, and that the constitution is now being complied with," said Rebecca...

    ** Something a bit off about that cross she's wearing... And here's Hillary on Ellen. Go to 2:20. The segment is Who Would You Rather (meaning sleep with). They're discussing sleeping with Beyonce v. Michelle Obama. Then it's suggested Hillary have sex with her own daughter. No look of repulsion or disgust. Just part of a 'comedy routine.' These are some sick people, folks. Unlike FEC violations, leaked emails, hacked servers THIS is the story that can decide this campaign. 1. Visual. 2. Immediate reaction and desire to tell others. It's hit 500,000 shares on Twitter. Depressing but the average...

Soledad mountaintop cross at a Korean War veterans memorial in San Diego ended in a victory for American heritage. The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued a one-page ruling calling the case moot on Sept. 8 and directing U.S. district judge Lawrence Byrne to dismiss it,...
