  • Dad's viral videos totally nail Saturday mornings for parents

    Being a mom or dad is one of life's greatest joys. But early on weekend mornings? We're not always feeling the joy so much. In a series of Vine videos now going viral, one bleary-eyed dad captures the truth of Saturday mornings as a parent. Tony Serafini, a 38-year-old dad from Leominster, Mass., spends Saturday mornings alone with his 4-year-old daughter after his wife and eldest daughter leave for dance class. He started shooting a series of videos showing the little girl rocking out to her favorite music in the background, while dad blearily waits for his caffeine to kick...

    Archdiocese of Washington ^ | 9/15/2010 | Msgr Charles Pope
    What do you expect from your relationship to Jesus Christ? I have come to discover that many do not expect all that much. In effect they hope that faith can kind of help them “muddle through” life and offer them a few consolations that, perhaps things will be better some day, and in heaven. Others see the moral life described in the scriptures more as a duty than a description of the person being transformed by Jesus Christ. And because they see it as a list of duties,  rather than the result of grace, they tend to resent it, consider...

    Im not a very good Christian, but even a backslider such as yours truly can observe and comment on the sick sacrilege of having a president who professes to be a Christian (Jeremiah Wright has gone on record saying Bathhouse Barry never really converted), yet speaks and acts as if hed have taken the Virgin Mary straight to Dr. Kermit Gosnells chop-shop upon learning of her condition related to her reproductive rights.

    The Joy of Zacchaeus (Luke 19:1-10)The story of Zacchaeus is a very famous and familiar story in the Bible. Most of us probably remember it from our Sunday School lessons and from that childrens song we all learned. You know the one Im talking about. It goes like this: Zacchaeus was a wee little man, A wee little man was he; He climbed up in a sycamore tree, For the Lord he wanted to see. And when the Savior passed that way, He looked up in the tree, And he said, Zacchaeus, you come down from there! For Im going...

    The Joy of Christmas (Luke 1:39-56; 2:1-14)Our theme for our midweek Lenten services this year is A Little Lenten Lukan Joy. What were doing is going through the Gospel of Luke and tracing the motif of joy that runs through the book. Now a series on joy may seem odd to do during Lent, but really its not. Lent is a penitential season, yes, but, as we noted last week, repentance leads to joy. Theyre two sides of the same coin, really. That is the premise for this whole series, namely, that when God calls us to repent--as he does...

    The Joy of Repentance (Luke 15:1-10)Today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of the season of Lent. And today we begin a series of six midweek services under the theme, A Little Lenten Lukan Joy. Let me explain. This year in the churchs three-year lectionary is The Year of St. Luke. That means for most of the services in this current church year the Holy Gospel will be one appointed from Lukes gospel. And so were really focusing in on this particular book this year. In our Bible class, were doing an in-depth study of the Gospel of Luke. Most...

    In Galatians 5: 22-23, the Holy Spirit tells us through Saint Paul that, "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control." Tricia Wittmann-Todd, Pastoral Life Coordinator at Saint Mary's Parish in the Central Area of Seattle, Washington, would deny the youth of her parish an authentic understanding of joy. Ms. Wittmann-Todd, having succumbed to the erroneous idea that Catholic moral teaching would in some way harm the youth of her parish, has refused to circulate petitions in support of Referendum 74, the ballot measure to roll back Washington's recently passed same-sex "marriage" law....

She didnt make it to her 18th birthday. She died 12 days after he was born, from the brain cancer that doctors told her she had more than a year earlier. Rather than accept treatment which may have endangered her baby, Jenni Lake decided against treating her cancer. I am sure that she died happy because she followed Gods plan. Her father recalled when Jenni Lake, then 16, was...

    It might have been expected that the death of movie star and AIDS activist Elizabeth Taylor might be an occasion for liberal sniping. Unsurprisingly, it came from Joy Behar on her CNN Headline News show Wednesday night, recirculating the complete myth that Ronald Reagan didn't care about AIDS, and couldn't utter the name of the disease for years: BEHAR: She didn't like Ronald Reagan's politics. She knew the Reagans and she was friends with them, I think, but she didn't like his politics. And here is the reason, I think, because as the AIDS crisis began in 1981, and Reagan...

This would be a life that offered its share of challenges, no doubt, but would reward the person with a maximum of self-satisfaction, peace, love, and joy and a minimum of self-doubt, guilt, and despair. But where can you find this kind of life? Some in the world say that it can be found through the acquisition of much secular learning and study of...

    On Thursday's edition of The View, Joy Behar displayed how little she knows Sarah Palin's favorite authors. As they discussed Palin's answer to Barbara Walters asking what she reads, and Walters said Palin reads C.S. Lewis for "divine inspiration," Behar asked "Aren't those children's books?" She wasn't joking, but she obviously liked the idea that Palin wasn't smart enough to read "adult books." The Narnia books aren't exactly Dr. Seuss. Behar isn't educated enough to know about his classic works of nonfiction in Christian apologetics, like Mere Christianity and The Screwtape Letters.

    TEHRAN, Iran -- An Iranian judge has ordered the amputation of the hand of a man who confessed to robbing a candy shop, local media reported Saturday. Iran's semiofficial Fars news agency said the chief judge of a Tehran court also sentenced the 21-year-old man, who was not identified, to a year in jail and ordered him to return the stolen items. The ruling comes days after Iranian authorities amputated the hand of another man convicted of theft in the northeastern city of Mashhad.

    "When the wine was gone, Jesus' mother said to Him: They have no more wine." John 2:3 This incident is a very fitting illustration of the failure of all this world's joys. The wine gave out at a wedding-feast. There was not enough of it to last through to the end of the feast. It is just so with all earth's pleasures. It comes in cups--not in fountains; and the supply is limited and soon exhausted. It is especially so with sin's pleasures. The prodigal soon ran out of money, and began to be in need. A poet compared the...

Behar slammed Palin, as well as Glenn Beck, Carrie Prejean and other conservatives during her "look back at 2009" edition of the "Joy Behar Show" that re-aired over Christmas weekend. An "esteemed" panel consisting of comedians Sandra Bernhard, Mo Rocca and Dave Attell joined Behar in mocking this year's prominent voices on the right.

Heath, 70, says boxes are piling up in the mail room of Bristol's mom, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. "I'd say from a half-dozen countries," Heath says. "In Sarah's mail room, there's 87 boxes -- big boxes of mail that we haven't even opened." He adds that there's no way the family will ever be able to answer every letter, although they are trying.

Charles Rangel's tax problems is expanding, turning what has been a minor headache for Democratic leaders into a New Year's migraine. The last thing Democrats need is an ethics cloud hovering over 20-term House veteran who, as House Ways and Means Committee chairman, will play a critical role in advancing President-elect Barack Obama's goals of an economic recovery plan, middle-class tax relief and expanded health insurance. It was only last month that the top House Democrat, Speaker Nancy...

    Video HERE. Elisabeth Hasselbeck provocatively pouts quite cutely as she introduces Sarah Palin, her friend and very hopefully the next Vice President. Take a break from Barack with nine minutes of alluring awesomeness. Elisabeth, in this Extended Edition of her talk introducing Sarah, shows growing polish. It would be good to see her out on the campaign trail more, as she sincerely shows a lot of potential. And, her support of Sarah Palin is very appreciated. This is a sequel to The Ultimate Combined Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sarah Palin Photos Thread, which is here. Please check it out and add...

    But the fruit of the Spirit is joy. Galatians 5:22-23 As the childrens song goes: "Ive got that joy joy joy joy down in my heart. Where?! Down in my heart..." I wish it were true across the board. I wish it were true in a small percentage of Christians (in the West), myself included. What went wrong? What is causing our joy, our zest for life and happiness and God to fade away? Where did it go? How did we let it slip away? More importantly, how can we get it back? Obviously this is a complex problem with...

    PRESIDENT BUSH SAYS the presidency is still "a joyous experience" for him. "People ask if I would do it again. I would." And one reason for his upbeat mood in talking to a dozen journalists Wednesday is progress in Iraq, including revenue sharing by the central government with the provinces. Another is the beginning of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations, though Bush cautioned that the creation of a Palestinian state won't come any time soon. Reconciliation between Shia and Sunni is occurring in Iraq, Bush said, but it's "bottom up reconciliation," not top down from the central government of Nouri a-Maliki. However, the...

    Churches are booking comedians to attract new members, and opening up opportunities for budding comics... When the Rev. Jay Laffoon began organizing Christian marriage conferences 10 years ago, he worried that many couples would arrive expecting cautionary tales about sin and hell and a long list of donts and few dos. Believing that Christian marriage is a thing of joy instituted by God, Laffoon wanted people to enjoy the gatherings. A joyful heart is good medicine; but a broken spirit dries up the bones, he said, quoting Proverbs 17:22. So he tried a radical approach; Laffoon hired a stand-up comedian...
