  • [Catholic Caucus] The Apparition of the Immaculate Virgin Mary at Lourdes (Gueranger)

    02/11/2018 4:12:10 AM PST · by CMRosary
    White Greater Double “My bow shall appear in the clouds and I will remember My covenant with you.” THE LESSONS AT MATINS on February 11th, 1854 (Thursday in Sexagesima week) recalled these words, and the world soon learned that on this very day Mary had appeared, more fair than the sign of hope which typified her at the time of the deluge. Portents, the realization of which we see in these days, were being multiplied. Mankind had grown old, and seemed about to perish in a deluge more dreadful than the former one. “I am the Immaculate Conception,” said...

    09/23/2017 11:28:18 PM PDT · by CMRosary
    White Greater Double THE Office of the Time gives us, at the close of September, the Books of Judith and Esther. These heroic women were figures of Mary, whose birthday is the honor of this month, and who comes at once to bring assistance to the world. “Adonai, Lord God, great and admirable, who hast wrought salvation by the hand of a woman:” the Church thus introduces the history of the heroine who delivered Bethulia by the sword, whereas Mardochai’s niece rescued her people from death by her winsomeness and her intercession. The Queen of heaven, in her peerless...

    White Double of the Second Class (with a Simple Octave) LET us celebrate the Nativity of the Virgin Mary; let us adore her Son, Christ our Lord. Such is the invitation addressed to us today by the Church. Let us hearken to her call; let us enter into her overflowing joy. The Bridegroom is at hand, for his throne is now set up on earth; yet a little while, and he will appear in the diadem of our human nature, wherewith his Mother is to crown him on the day of the joy of his heart, and of ours....

    This is funny as hell, Trump is the ultimate unifier! Via the Daily Bail: LIFELONG DEMOCRAT TELLS AMERICA HOW SHE FEELS This is awesome. C-Span's morning call-in show is a daily feast of beautiful Americana. Yesterday Alicia from Pennsylvania was slightly confused about which line to call, but there was no confusion about her thoughts on Hillary Clinton, George Bush, Trump, and uninformed American voters. 'I would never vote for Hillary Clinton. She should have been out with Bush. We don't need a crook. She's just like her husband.' (C-Span Video at link)Very funny!

    A woman known as North Carolina's 'Bear Lady' may have been killed by a bear. The remains of Kay Grayson, 67, were found in a well-known bear path just 100 yards from her isolated home in Tyrrell County on Monday. Authorities could only find bones, hair and ripped clothing, which had likely been there for two weeks after she was reported missing.

    The professional press corps has been frozen out of Michelle Obama's swing through China. But the White House has partnered with CNN to bring in amateurs. Katie Hawkins-Gaar, aCNN editor, coordinated the effort to solicit and accumulate submissions from "iReporters" interested in asking questions about the "importance of students learning from one another's cultures," Mrs. Obama's stated emphasis for this trip. TheWhite House's webpagededicated to the first lady's trip describes the "assignment" as follows: CNN iReport Assignment: iReporters in the U.S. and around the world havesubmitted questionsfor the First Lady about study abroad.

    Primary school dinner lady sacked for 'negligence, carelessness or idleness' after she accidentally served gammon to a Muslim pupil A primary school dinner lady has been sacked for accidentally serving pork to a Muslim pupil. Alison Waldock, 51, 'forgot' the seven-year-old dietary needs when she asked if the schoolgirl wanted gammon and the youngster said yes. The school's headteacher spotted the mistake as the youngster was about to tuck into the meat and swept the plate away from her. The girl's parents were then told how close their daughter had come to eating the meat, which is banned in their...

    Telegraph ^ | June 13th, 2011 | Nile Gardiner
    In the past few days a number of hugely misleading reports have circulated in both Britain and the United States alleging that Margaret Thatcher snubbed Sarah Palin. It all began with a blog post in The Guardian claiming the former prime minister had refused to meet with Mrs. Palin on her upcoming visit to London, on the grounds that she was unworthy of an audience, and quoting an anonymous ally of Lady Thatcher. According to The Guardian, in a piece entitled Margaret Thatcher to Sarah Palin: dont bother dropping by: Her (Lady Thatchers) allies believe that Palin is a frivolous...

    New York's iconic Statue of Liberty is to close for a year for renovations. The 305ft (93m) copper statue needs $27.5m (16.8m) in repairs, US Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said. The National Park Service said new stairs and elevators would be installed within the 125-year-old statue, but Liberty Island would remain open. The statue, dedicated in 1886, was given to the US by France. Most of the 3.5m people who visit Liberty Island each year do not climb the statue. Visitors were barred from venturing up inside the statue in the wake of the 9/11 terror attacks, although they were...

    Speaking at the Womens Leadership Luncheon in Gaborone, Botswana on Friday, First Lady Michelle Obama praised the country for being a thriving democracy filled with kind and generous people. A U.S. Department of State report on Botswanas human rights record, however, concludes that the country is still struggling with problems such as violence against women, child abuse, and discrimination. [I]t is a pleasure to be in this beautiful country that embodies what my husband has called a vision of Africa on the move, Obama said at the luncheon in Gaborne where young women were honored for their leadership.

    President and Mrs. Obama hosted a decidedly more subtle state dinner for German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the White House Tuesday evening. Though Mr. Obama presented Merkel with his highest honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the dinner otherwise lacked the glitz and glamour of the Obama administration-- with one noticeable exception. First Lady Michelle Obama wore a shimmery ivory sleeveless gown by Naeem Khan, a designer she favors and also donned at the president's first state dinner in 2009. Naeem Khan gowns retail from $5,000-$15,000. Khan told the Wall Street Journal the first dress he made for Mrs. Obama...
