    STORY NUMBER ONE Many Years ago, Al Capone virtually owned Chicago. Capone wasn't famous for anything heroic. He was notorious for enmeshing the windy city in everything from bootlegged booze and prostitution to murder. Capone had a lawyer nicknamed "Easy Eddie." He was Capone's lawyer for a good reason. Eddie was very good! In fact, Eddie's skill at legal maneuvering kept Big Al out of jail for a longtime. To show his appreciation, Capone paid him very well.. Not only was the money big, but Eddie got special dividends, as well. For instance, he and his family occupied a fenced-in...

    The father of three daughters who were abused by Larry Nassar tried to attack the former doctor in an Eaton County, Michigan, court Friday before he was tackled and arrested by security. Randall Margraves said he was a "distraught father" and cursed at Nassar, but Judge Janice Cunningham told him that was not allowed in court. He then asked the judge for personal time alone with the "demon." "I would ask you, as part of the sentencing, to grant me five minutes in a locked room with this demon," he asked. "Would you give me one minute?" The judge declined,...
  • Feminist slams ‘Fixer Upper’ stars for 5th baby: We need to ‘shame’ them for being ‘irresponsible’

    CANADA, January 15, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – “Procreation is becoming a global public health concern, rather than a personal decision,” a feminist wrote for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) in an article trashing "Fixer Upper" stars Chip and Joanna Gaines for having a fifth child. “It's not an exaggeration to say that the survival of our species depends” on population control, Kristen Pyszczyk wrote. Even though population control “carries with it associations with eugenics and other nasty historical events...we still need to talk about it.” The Gaines couple of HGTV fame announced the existence of their fifth child by posting a...

    What A Father Can Give His Daughter Msgr. Charles Pope • December 9, 2016 • For most people who view the commercial below, the focus is the Apple iPhone. But for us, I think the true focus should not be the Apple phone the man holds, but the apple of his eye, his daughter. Here is a father who delights in his daughter, and a daughter who is both affirmed by and happy in his delight.A young girl naturally desires the love and appreciation of her father. She delights in being the apple of Daddy’s eye. If she does...

    What Was the Foundation of Jesus’ Life and Ministry? Msgr. Charles Pope • September 28, 2017 • One of Jesus’ most central qualities was that He loved His Heavenly Father and was loved by Him. To put it colloquially, Jesus was crazy about His Father. He was always talking about Him. Jesus often sought remote places in order to be able to spend extended time with His Father. Clearly He also knew and experienced His Father’s great love for Him.Indeed, Jesus’ public ministry began with this declaration of the Father: You are my beloved Son; with you I am...

    Fatherhood and Mercy Msgr. Charles Pope • July 19, 2016 • Last weekend I was out in Anacortes, Washington (about a hundred miles north of Seattle) preaching at the Faith on Fire conference. One of the talks I gave was entitled “Mercy and Fatherhood.” In it, I spoke about how a father can show mercy to his children. What follows is my notes for that talk. What does a priest know about being a father? Why don’t you read this post and then tell me? Remember that I have been the son of my father, I have two brothers,...

    The Art of Manlness ^ | June 19, 2015 | Brett and Kate McKay
    In 1960, only 10% of children were raised without a father in the home.Today, 40% are.There are many reasons behind this sobering statistic. The clichéd case of a man knocking up a woman, and then leaving town never to return certainly still occurs.But sometimes a man’s ex-wife petitions for primary custody of their kids, and sympathetic family courts unjustly grant this request about 80% of the time.And there is an increasing number of women — who for various reasons cannot or do not want to raise their children with a boyfriend or husband — who intentionally choose to become...

    This post is brought to you by Dockers®. What’s this? Father’s Day is next week. It’s a day to remember dad and tell him thanks for all the things he’s done for you. If you’re a dad, it’s a time to remember the important role you have in your children’s lives.We often celebrate Father’s Day by getting dad a nice gift — a fishing pole, a tie, maybe an awesome power drill. While such a gesture shows your thoughtfulness and will likely be much appreciated by Dad, the most precious gift you can give can’t be wrapped up in...

    Even though the modern world isn’t any more dangerous than it was thirty or forty years ago, it feels like a more perilous place. Or, more accurately, we inhabit the world today in a way that’s much more risk averse; for a variety of very interesting and nuanced reasons, our tolerance for risk, especially concerning our children’s safety, has steadily declined.So we remove jungle gyms from playgrounds, ban football at recess, prohibit knives (even the butter variety) at school, and would rather have our kids playing with an iPad than rummaging through the garage or roaming around the neighborhood.Unfortunately,...
  • In Arkansas, Women Must Now Get A Man's Permission Before An Abortion

    Konbini ^ | 7/10/2017 | Kimberly B. Johnson
    In Arkansas, women are now required to get permission from men before going through with abortion services. The law is a provision of recently passed bill H.B. 1566 which states that in the matter of a person’s death, family members must all agree on what to do with the deceased person’s body. So, how do women and their bodies play into this at all? Arkansas legislators decided to include aborted fetuses into the Act, meaning both the mother and the father of the fetus must agree on what to do with the fetal remains. This essentially requires a woman to...

    gotquestions.org ^ | unknown | Got Questions Ministries
    Question: "To whom are we to pray, the Father, the Son, or the Holy Spirit?" Answer: All prayer should be directed to our triune God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Bible teaches that we can pray to one or all three, because all three are one. To the Father we pray with the psalmist, “Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray” (Psalm 5:2). To the Lord Jesus, we pray as to the Father because they are equal. Prayer to one member of the Trinity is prayer to all. Stephen, as he...
  • Fathers’ Consent For Abortion ‘Undesirable’ Says Britain’s Leading Provider

    Breitbart ^ | June 3, 2017 | Donna Rachel Edmunds
    Britain’s leading provider of abortion services has said that requiring a father’s consent before an abortion is carried out is “not desirable”, and that abortion should be “fully tax-payer funded”. In the run-up to the general election next week the British Pregnancy Advisory Service has been lobbying Parliamentary candidates to sign up to its “My Pledge, Her Choice” campaign, calling on candidates to protect clinic access and funding for British women, oppose “parliamentary attacks” on abortion rights and support further moves to decriminalise abortion. But in response to a UKIP candidate’s offer to support the pledge as long as it...

    FULL TITLE: Children have a stable home environment and perform better at school if their biological father lives with them (but the same benefits do not apply when a stepfather moves in) Children are healthier and more likely to grow up with a good education and get a good job if their biological father lives with them, research reveals. But when a stepfather moves into a family home there are no benefits for the children, the pioneering study of British families found. The warning over the failure of stepfathers to help the families they bring up was drawn from records...

    St. Joseph and Manhood Msgr. Charles Pope • March 19, 2017 • I remember once being amused to hear that a 19th century Franciscan theologian (whose name I cannot recall) wrote a six-volume set called “The Life of St. Joseph.” How could one possibly get enough material to fill six volumes? We know so little about Joseph from Scripture. He seems to have been the strong, silent type. Not a word of his is recorded, but his actions have much to say, especially to men.On this feast of St. Joseph, we do well to ponder him as a model...
