    Prominent rabbis from the Lithuanian ultra-Orthodox sector have offered their own curious interpretations for the upheaval that is spreading through the Middle East, stating that the events are a clear proof that a higher power is at work. Orthodox Lithuanian sector in Bnei Brak, as blaming the instability in the region on contemptuous attitudes towards Torah study. "Recently it appears that there is a powerful effort to destroy and agitate the world of the Torah, through various attempts to prosecute kollels and yeshiva students," Steinman said. "When you try to agitate the world of the Torah, God agitates the world."...

    The American Thinker ^ | February 07, 2011 | Jack Cashill
    At the National Prayer Breakfast on February 3, President Obama threw a knuckleball down the middle, and the media whiffed. Most simply took Obama at his word that as a young man in Chicago, he "came to know Jesus Christ for myself and embrace him as my lord and savior" and that as president, he asks "the Lord" every day to make him "an instrument of his will." In a moment, I will address the sheer gamesmanship of this theological flutter to the center, but first, a word on the most revealing part of the sermonette. This revelation was missed...

Throughout the ages, Christians have celebrated Christmas as a season, including the twelve days between Christmas and the Epiphany as one long Christmas "day".  The season of Christmas ends with our celebration of the Lord's baptism.   Jesus' public life begins with his baptism by John in the Jordan . (Lk 3:23; Acts 1:22). "The Baptist hesitates, but Jesus insists and receives baptism. Then the Holy Spirit, in the form of a dove, comes upon Jesus and a voice from heaven proclaims,...

  • Feast of the Holy Name of Jesus

    Feast of the Holy Name of Jesus    This Feast is associated with the Feast of the Circumcision, for it is when a child was circumcized that he received a name and was accepted as a son of Abraham and a full member of his family (the Feast of the Holy Family will come soon, after the Feast of the Epiphany on the 6th). So honored is His Holy Name that devout Catholics bow their heads (men removing their hats) at the sound of "Jesus" (or "Iesus" in Latin), both inside and outside of the liturgy. To protect the sacredness...

    American Thinker ^ | 12/25/2010 | Vasko Kohlmayer
    Some two thousand years ago, the man whose birthday we celebrate during this season was walking with his disciples through a region which is today known as the Golan Heights.  As they were making their way through those hilly parts, Jesus turned to his companions and asked, "Who do people say that I am?" The disciples told him that many ideas circulated as to his identity: "Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets." Things have not changed much in the intervening two millennia.  Today, as then, people hold many notions...

    Yes, Jenny, There Was A Saint Nicholas In 1897, a cute little girl, Virginia O'Hanlon - age eight - wrote to the New York Sun, a now defunct newspaper owned by two men who were sons of a Baptist minister. Needless to say, newspaper publishers made more of a religious impact back then than the NY Times - the Atheists Bible - does today. Virginia simply asked the NY Sun's editors to tell her if there was, "Really a Santa Claus?" The Sun's answer is not bad, but mine, I think, is better: Dear Jenny, I know that you have...

    "The God In The Cave" | From The Everlasting ManThis sketch of the human story began in a cave; the cave which popular science associates with the cave-man and in which practical discovery has really found archaic drawings of animals. The second half of human history, which was like a new creation of the world, also begins in a cave. There is even a shadow of such a fancy in the fact that animals were again present; for it was a cave used as a stable by the mountaineers of the uplands about Bethlehem; who still drive their cattle...

    Man with no limbs brings thousands to Jesus Christ Posted on 11 November 2010 At a recently-held event in Seattle, a man who was born with no arms and legs led more than 1,692 people to accept Jesus Christ into their lives. The man is Nick Vujicic, author of Life Without Limits. He can surf, swim, fish, play soccer and golf. He has degrees in accounting and finance. And, he heads the nonprofit organization Life Without Limbs, Pasadena Star-News reported.

    Christ 622. Is it Catholic dogma that, in order to accomplish mankind's redemption, God became man for thirty-three years? It is Catholic dogma that God the Son, the Second Person of the Holy Trinity, became man in order to redeem us; and from the moment of His Incarnation, He retains both His Divinity and His assumed humanity for all eternity. His death meant the separation temporarily of His human soul from His earthly body, but not the separation of either His soul or His body from its union with His Divinity. In the resurrection, His human soul and body were...

It is only because of his satisfaction and the invocatin of his name that anyone can be saved (Acts 4:12). (Etym. Latin salvator, from salvare, to save.) All items in this dictionary are from Fr.

    In the naivety of my early walk I constantly prayed "God let my heart feel as yours feels, let my eyes see as yours see, let my ears hear what yours hear." One day He spoke to my heart and told me that such knowledge would destroy me. I realized I was not made to be able to bear the burdens of humanity, that task is reserved for God alone. I believe that God is a God of strategy and He positions His people in every dark place in the earth and also that it is imperative that we, the...

    Current UCLA men's basketball coach Ben Howland described Wooden as a humble man. "His basic nature was love," Howland said. Wooden's pastor, Dudley Rutherford, assured the crowd of 4,000 gathered at Pauley Pavilion on the UCLA campus, of his parishioner's eternal destination. "Coach made it," Rutherford declared. "He is there [in heaven] not because he was a good teacher . . . or won basketball games. He is in heaven because he put his faith and trust in Jesus Christ." Rutherford gestured to the record 10 NCAA national championship banners won by Wooden's teams that hang in Pauley Pavilion [more...

    “How do you become okay with yourself?” How would you answer this question? A young woman who is going through a difficult time posed this question to me recently. Before I set my eyes upon Jesus, I could not have answered her. Growing up during the 60s, I never felt I was okay, at least by society’s standards. According to the dictionary, the word okay has the following meanings: all right, satisfactory, acceptable and adequate. Even as an adult, I had a hard time accepting myself, faults and all. Things changed in my late 40s when I began searching for...

    By Wesley Wilson, Age 12 Let's face it. We all hate cancer. But when you read John 14:6, "I am the way, the truth and the life," that gives us something to think about. Jesus' way is the only way. You won't be misled. Jesus' truth is the only truth you can always depend on in good times and bad. And the most important, The Life is the only thing we live for. Some people say there's no cure for cancer. Jesus is the only cure for cancer. And that's the truth. Editor's Note: Wesley is my son, and he's...

    “But your hearts must be fully committed to the Lord our God, to live by his decrees and obey his commands, as at this time.” 1 Kings 8:61 (NIV) I am in the latter half of my fifth decade. Recently, I told a friend that even if I had several hundred years to live, I would never be able to reach all of the goals that I have set for myself. I realize, however, that my goals may not be the same as God’s plans for my life, and I’m okay with that. The following poem, often recited by Dr....
