  • [Catholic Caucus] Saint Edward the Confessor, King of England (Gueranger)

    Clutching My Rosary ^ | 1868 | Dom Prosper Gueranger
    White Semidouble THIS GLORIOUS SAINT was like a beautiful lily, crowning the ancient branch of the kings of Wessex. The times had progressed since that sixth century, when the pagan Cerdic and other pirate chiefs from the North Sea scattered with ruins the island of saints. Having accomplished their mission of wrath, the Anglo-Saxons became instruments of grace to the land they had conquered. Evangelized by Rome, even as the Britons they had just chastized, they remembered, better than the latter, whence their salvation had come; a spring-tide blossoming of sanctity showed the pleasure God took once more in...

    Politicizing the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks by comparing alleged Russian hackers to the al Qaeda hijackers who killed 3,000 Americans? For shame. Maine Senator Angus King, an Independent who votes with Democrats, made these comments this morning in Lewiston, Maine. He said that 9/11 was "the beginning of an attack that's continuing today. They used airplanes into towers, now people can use the click of a computer key in St. Petersburg, Russia."

    White Semidouble “OUT OF THE EATER CAME FORTH MEAT, and out of the strong came forth sweetness. The people with teeth of steel grinding the nations gives itself up as food to him, to whom was said: Kill and eat; the mouth of the Huns, formerly vomiting foam and rage, now distills the honey of charity. Such, O Christ, are thy miracles; such are thy works, O our God!” Thus does Baronius, on reaching in his history the year of Christ 1000, hail the arrival of the Hungarian deputies, who came to offer to the Roman Church the suzerainty...

    White Semidouble IT WAS HIS CHRISTIAN FAITH that made Louis IX so great a prince. “You that are the judges of the earth, think of the Lord in goodness, and seek Him in simplicity of heart.” Eternal Wisdom, in giving this precept to kings, rejoiced with divine foreknowledge among the lilies of France, where this great saint was to shine with so bright a luster. Subject and prince are bound to God by a common law, for all men have one entrance into life, and the like going out. Far from being less responsible to the divine authority than...

    Horror novelist Stephen King is going viral again with yet another slam against President Donald Trump. Trump is visiting the United Kingdom later this week after a NATO summit in Brussels, and is expected to be greeted by protests complete with a 20-foot Trump baby in a diaper blimp floating overhead. The best-selling writer tweeted: (TWEET-AT-LINK) King has been a frequent Trump critic on Twitter....

    Rep. Steve King posted a warning on Twitter Sunday evening that the U.S. is heading toward a second civil war, comparing the present day actions of the anti-Trump resistance to the run-up to the Civil War. King, an eight-term Congressman from Iowa, keyed off a PJ Media article about leftist protesters shutting down a Portland, Oregon ICE office and taking down the U.S. flag, replacing with an Refugees Welcome flag. America is heading in the direction of another Harpers Ferry. After that comes Ft. Sumter.

    Lately, whenever we’ve wound up covering stories out of Spain, they’ve been related to the Catalan independence movement. Today, however, the lens swings away from that region and back to Madrid. There was a concert held there recently by various artists including a rap musician named Josep Miquel Arenas, better known as Valtonyc. The show was informally considered a “farewell performance” because, barring success in a last minute appeal, Arenas is heading off to prison for a few years. His crime? He insulted the king, among other things. (WaPo) The headliner tonight was Josep Miquel Arenas, 24, the artist known...

    Rep. Steve King (R-IA) told Breitbart News Sunday hosts Matthew Boyle and Amanda House that Congress should fund the wall in the ensuing omnibus spending battle, saying, Lets fund the whole wall and lets build it all. Rep. King told Breitbart News Sunday about the incoming omnibus spending bill that Congress has to pass before this Friday. King declared: Well, this method of governing is just so messy that it puts any member of Congress in a position where maybe you can pick one thing and then beat the drum to try to keep that from getting slipped in there....

    A troubled teen dubbed mentally disturbed by President Trump opened fire at a Florida school nearly one year after a law undid a regulation making it harder for people with mental illnesses to purchase a gun. Most Republicans and the National Rifle Association cheered the repeal of the Obama-era measure meant to prevent future massacres as experts question what can be done to prevent such tragedies.

    BBC ^ | February 3, 2018 | unattributed
    A 500-year-old secret code used in letters between one of Spain's most famous monarchs and a military commander has been cracked. Ferdinand of Aragon's letters have tantalised historians for centuries. Constructed using more than 200 special characters, they were deciphered by the country's intelligence agency. He was behind the final recapture - Reconquista - of Spain from the Moors in 1492 and Columbus's journeys to the Americas. The letters between Ferdinand and Gonzalo de Crdoba include instructions on strategy during military campaigns in Italy in the early 16th Century. They were written using secret code in case they fell into...

    Look at all of these investigations now, said King. Look closely for Barack Obamas fingerprints. Ive just identified some that I think are fingerprints, and I think this trail leads to the Obama presidency, to Barack Obama himself, but its going to take some time if we get there, and Im not certain that the evidence trail necessarily leads there. Theres an indication trail that says we need to take a look and find out. But if its not Barack Obama, then who is it? Well, its Loretta Lynch, for example, and James Comey, and McCabe, and that cast of...

    Watch closely for Barack Obamas fingerprints, said Rep. Steve King (R-IA) on Saturday, suggesting the recent alleged partisan weaponization of state surveillance powers could be connected to the 44th president. [Democrats and their allies] will defend Barack Obama at all costs, and theyll defend Hillary Clinton almost at all costs unless they have to sacrifice her to protect Barack Obama, he added.

    Red vestments   THE MAGI KINGS, as we have already observed, have been followed to the Crib of Jesus by Saintly Christian Monarchs; and it was just that these should be represented on the Church’s Calendar during the season which is consecrated to the Mystery of his Birth. The eleventh century is one of the most glorious of the Christian era, and gave, both to the Church and the various States of Europe, a great number of saintly Kings. Among them, Canute the Fourth of Denmark stands pre-eminent by reason of the aureol of his martyrdom. He had every...

    Billy Graham Library ^ | 2015 | Billy Graham
    Civil rights were very much in the forefront in America during the 1960s and early 1970s. As the issue unfolded, I sometimes found myself under fire from both sides, extreme conservatives castigating me for doing too much and extreme liberals blaming me for not doing enough. In reality, both groups tended to stand aloof from our evangelistic Crusades, but those people who actively supported us understood very well our commitment to doing what we could through our evangelism to end the blight of racism. Early on, Dr. King and I spoke about his method of using non-violent demonstrations to bring...

    Martin Luther King Papers Project ^ | September 30, 1962 | Martin Luther King Jr.
    Now, let us begin by answering the question which our sermon topic raises: Can a Christian be a communist? I answer that question with an emphatic no. These two philosophies are diametrically opposed. The basic philosophy of Christianity is unalterably opposed to the basic philosophy of communism, and all of the dialectics of the logician cannot make them lie down together. They are contrary philosophies. Now, there are at least three reasons why I feel obligated as a Christian minister to talk to you about communism. The first reason grows out of the fact that communism is having widespread influence...

    MLK Institute ^ | November 13, 1958 | Martin Luther King Jr.
    In the coming period when travel to the Soviet Union is more usual, I believe the American people will expect committed leaders to get information by serious personal inquiry rather than to rely upon secondary sources. Among some of the more specific lines of inquiry I wish to pursue are those which would illuminate the reasons for the continued existence of religious conviction among millions of Soviet citizens, all of whom have been subjected to varying degrees of oppression and discouragement by powerful agencies of propaganda and anti-religious education. This tenacity to spiritual commitment is worthy of careful study for...

    Reuters ^ | 01/04/17
    Bitcoin was the star of the white-knuckle ride that cryptocurrencies offered in 2017 but lesser-known names, such as Ripple and Ethereum, are seen gaining prominence in 2018. While bitcoin jumped more than 1,200 percent last year, Ripple, created by the founder of bitcoin exchange Mt Gox, surged 35,000 percent in the same period. That means $100 invested in Ripple in January 2017 would have grown to about $35,000 at the start of this year. To be sure, bitcoin is still the biggest cryptocurrency by far - with market value exceeding $250 billion - and is expected to keep that mantle...
