  • [Catholic Caucus] The Ember Days of September (Gueranger)

    09/19/2017 11:00:53 PM PDT · by CMRosary · 2 replies
    FOR the third time this year, Holy Church comes claiming from her children the tribute of Penance, which, from the earliest ages of Christianity, was looked upon as a solemn consecration of the Seasons. The historical details relative to the institution of the Ember Days will be found on the Wednesdays of the third week of Advent and of the first week of Lent; and on those same two days, we have spoken of the intentions which Christians should have in the fulfilment of the demand made upon their yearly service. The beginnings of the Winter, Spring, and Autumn...

  • WHOM SHOULD WE TRUST about the LAST DAYS and SECOND COMING?

    WHOM SHOULD WE TRUST about the LAST DAYS and SECOND COMING: JESUS, PAUL, JOHN, PETER, and JAMES—-OR MODERN DAY TEACHERS? There are over 100 passages in the New Testament that demand that the fulfillment of the so-called "last-days" events would happen while some of those living in the first century were still alive. Some of the passages below specifically say that, or are address specifically to those living in the first century. An important principle of biblical interpretation is "audience relevance." “THESE are the days of vengeance to fulfill ALL that is written.” (Jesus, speaking to his disciples, Lk 21:22)...

    WHAT IS THE ESCHATON? The term ESCHATON refers to the so-called “last days” or “end times.” It is the same root word as ESCHATOLOGY, the study of the biblical “last things.” There is great confusion over the biblical “end times.” After studying this for many years, I am persuaded that the culmination of NONE of the mentions of the "last days" or "end times" in the Bible can be placed outside of the first century. While this is shocking at first to some Christians, it is worth taking the time to study this. There are 15 primary mentions of the...

    BIBLIANO and AMIGO: Discussions on Eschatology (Lesson #1) by Charles S. Meek BIBLIANO: My friend, Amigo, when do you think that Matthew 10:23 was fulfilled? AMIGO: Well, to tell you the truth, I have pretty much ignored that passage because it seems to say that Jesus would return (“come”) while some of his disciples were still alive. I just don’t know how to deal with that. BIBLIANO: Then, when do you think that Matthew 16:27-28 was fulfilled? AMIGO: Wow, I admit that it sounds a lot like Matthew 10:23—Jesus returning while some of those living in the first century were...

    Faith Facts ^ | March 16, 2015 | Charles S. Meek
    Many American evangelicals regularly pray for Jesus to come soon. And then they search the daily newspaper for events which seem to affirm that Jesus is answering those prayers. Do you realize that, in actuality, they are praying for a holocaust in which two-thirds of Jews will die? That seems more than a bit anti-Semitic to me.There are legitimate questions whether this is biblical. Shouldn't Christians be reading the Bible through the lens of the writers of the New Testament? Reading the Bible through the lens of news events has led to false end-times prophecies throughout Christian history. These predictive...

    A shallow magnitude 3.0 earthquake that was centered near Hollywood and shook parts of the Los Angeles basin Saturday morning was the third temblor to hit the area in the last two weeks. The latest quake occurred at 10:13 a.m. at a depth of 5.0 miles and was felt from the Westside to East L.A., said Anthony Guarino, a seismologist at Caltech. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the epicenter was near the intersection of Melrose and Virgil avenues, on the eastern edge of Hollywood. It was the third magnitude 3.0 or greater quake to hit that area in the...

    Twelve weeks from today, the US government will hit its borrowing limit. When Congress lifted the debt ceiling last month, for the first time ever, it pegged the increase to a specific date, rather than a dollar amount. The current borrowing authority expires in just 84 days, on February 7th.

    The obsessed French-Canadian actress who made Alec Baldwin’s life a living hell was found guilty Thursday of stalking and other charges. Genevieve Sabourin, who turned her trial into a circus when she heckled Baldwin and his wife Hilaria on the stand, stayed silent and looked glum as the judge declared her guilty on all counts — and gave her a piece of his mind. “You had no right to continue communications or pursue contact you knew to be unwanted and unwelcome,” Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Robert Mandelbaum said. “Your relentless and escalating campaign of threats and in person appearances in...

    The House will return to work on Jan. 7 after the Christmas break, giving them seven working days in the new year before government funding runs out again. There are 16 scheduled days left in the current year, but few expect any measure to extend government funding to get rolling before the House departs for Christmas break on December 13. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor released the schedule for 2014 on Thursday, which lists 113 working days. The calendar includes the chamber’s usual August recess and another extended break in October when members traditionally return to their districts to campaign....

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon) told a news conference in The Hague where he was attending centenary celebrations for the Peace Palace. "Let them conclude their work for four days, and then we will have to analyse scientifically with experts and then I think we will have to report to the Security Council for any actions."
  • Military reduces furlough days.

    FORT HUACHUCA — Department of Defense civil service employees received good news Tuesday when they were informed nearly half of the furlough days they expected to have to take before the end of September were cut. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said instead of 11 days taken without pay it would be reduced to six, meaning civil service employees working for the military will not have to take five days off sans salary. So, instead of the employees facing a 20 percent loss of pay from July 9 to Sept. 30, the cut will be slightly more than 10 percent....

    In response to attacks by the powerful and offensive homosexual lobby, friends of Chick-fil-A are promoting National Eat at Chick-fil-A Day on July 25th and August 1st. I’ll be there on both days. In fact, all the employees at our various businesses will be eating at Chick-fil-A the next two Wednesdays. As is typical of the homosexual lobby, many angry messages were left on Chick-fil-A’s Facebook page, including: “Hate mongers! Never again! Not another $ from me.” “Goodbye Chikkk-fil-a! Your food was delicious, but I can no longer eat nuggets filled with hate!” Of course, it’s not about hate. It’s...

    Top White House advisers and OMB career staffers worried about the political risks from President Barack Obama's Solyndra 2010 visit and also discussed deeper management programs inside the Energy Department's loan guarantee program, according to more than a dozen internal email threads released Tuesday by House Democrats. "There is an inherent risk in highlighting a single company before they have a track record," Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to Obama, wrote to Ronald Klain, Vice President Joe Biden's chief of staff, on May "Or even after they have one :-)" Klain replied in a colorful exchange that came just two...

    Democrats have controlled the Senate and the White House since the election of 2008, and the House of Representatives up until this year.  Certainly they could have passed any budget they desired, including one with tax increases and spending increases.  But they chose to ignore the 800-day gorilla in the room because they don't want to be on record supporting a budget that actually does what they want.  Then the public could hold them accountable for their cowardly and irresponsible behavior in the face of national fiscal calamity.

    As of May 30, 2011, America has 600 days more of rule by President Barack Hussein Obama.He is the 44th President and, while we have had incompetent Presidents in the past, we have never had one determined to destroy the nation. It has taken more than two years for most sentient Americans to grasp this extraordinary threat. He has not solved problems. He has exacerbated them. Granted the financial crisis began in 2008 as President George W. Bush was finishing his second term, but President Obama—aside from blaming Bush for everything

    My confusion | May 27, 2011 | Myself
    I am listening to a debate between students regarding the 3-month-old Libyan war. The tone of the debate seems to be centered around a comment in a speech where Obama said that US military involvement in Libya would last days and not weeks. I started a conversation with some listeners and they also assume Obama said the same thing. I do not remember Obama saying that. I searched for a transcript of Obama making that comment and I found nothing. I did find a quote where Obama said the transition to NATO of control over US military forces would occur...

    In an effort to satisfy those arguing he needs to seek congressional authorization to continue US military activity in accordance with the War Powers Resolution, President Obama wrote a letter to congressional leaders this afternoon suggesting that the role is now so “limited” he does not need to seek congressional approval.
