    The Rev. Giuseppe Berardelli, 72, refused to take the respirator while in a hospital after finding out the other patient — who was a complete stranger — also needed it, according to the BBC.

    Posted on March 1, 2020February 29, 2020 by Msgr. Charles Pope God’s Law is Personal and Loving In Monday’s first reading (Monday of the First Week of Lent) there is a recitation of the law that features the refrain “I am the Lord.” What does this expression mean and why is it appended to each command?When we think of God’s law, there is a danger that we might think of it as we do of any secular law: as a sort of impersonal code written by nameless legislators or bureaucrats. We have not met them; we do not love,...
  • The ‘Dating Market’ Is Getting Worse: The old but newly popular notion that one’s love life can be analyzed like an economy is flawed—and it’s ruining romance.

    The Atlantic ^ | February 25, 2020 | Ashley Fetters and Kaitlyn Tiffany
    Ever since her last relationship ended this past August, Liz has been consciously trying not to treat dating as a “numbers game.” By the 30-year-old Alaskan’s own admission, however, it hasn’t been going great. Liz has been going on Tinder dates frequently, sometimes multiple times a week—one of her New Year’s resolutions was to go on every date she was invited on. But Liz, who asked to be identified only by her first name in order to avoid harassment, can’t escape a feeling of impersonal, businesslike detachment from the whole pursuit. “It’s like, ‘If this doesn’t go well, there are...

    Sometimes what happens in Vegas needs to be shared with the ones we love. Some of you may remember that my wife passed away in June of 2009. Since then, life has continued and blessed me with finding love again. After being together for almost ten years now, Jean and I were married in Las Vegas on the 20th of February. I am such a lucky man and honored to have such a wonderful woman as my best friend and wife. To other widowers out there in FR...don't ever stop looking for a companion and friend to be with. You...
  • The Cold Month That Warms the Heart

    02/11/2020 6:51:49 AM PST · by Kaslin · 1 replies ^ | February 11, 2020 | Robert Knight
    June may be more famous for nuptials, especially outdoor ceremonies. However, February is hands-down the most marriage-and-romance-centric month. It’s National Wedding Month, has National Marriage Week (Feb. 7-14), and, of course, Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14). So, break out the roses and chocolate. Valentine’s Day is named after a Christian saint who was most probably martyred on Feb. 14, 269 A.D. for marrying Christian couples in defiance of a Roman government edict, and for assisting persecuted Christians. Today, as with many traditions in Western culture that had a Christian origin, Valentine’s Day has broadened into a secular festivity, boosted by major...

    For 68 years the National Prayer Breakfast has been a political oasis, a chance for Republicans, Democrats, national and world leaders to assemble and pray for each other and the nation. Not this year. One could tell where things were headed when President Trump arrived later than most other presidents and held up two newspapers with the headline "Acquitted," a reference to the vote by the GOP majority in the Senate the day before, which refused to convict him of articles of impeachment written by the Democratic majority in the House. The president then shook hands with only half of...

    An Irishman's first drink with his son While reading an article last night about fathers and sons, memories came flooding back to the time I took me son out for his first pint. Off we went to our local pub only two blocks from the cottage. I got him a Guinness. He didn't like it, so I drank it. Then I got him a Kilkenny's, he didn't like that either, so I drank it. Finally, I thought he might like some Harp Lager? He didn't. I drank it. I thought maybe he'd like whisky better than beer so we tried...

  • The Bible Doesn't Talk Much about Love...(But it is brimming with it)

    The Bible is the Word of God. It is an amazing revelation, showing us Who God is, and what he has done to save mankind from the sin that we are all prone to. Central to that revelation is the truth that God hates sin and evil, and everything that is false, but God loves man. He has made a Righteous way to save man from the consequences of Man’s own rebellion. In a recent sermon I made this observation, which some have found hard to understand; I said that the Bible doesn’t really say that much about Love. God...
  • Yes, Of Course God Loves us... (John 3)

    It is not unusual for true ministers of God to have their teachings deliberately misconstrued by enemies, to discredit them. This happened to our LORD Jesus, when he was accused of being a threat to the Temple and of blasphemy against the sacred place. It also happened to the Apostle Paul, when his detractors accused him of teaching that believers can sin with impunity, since Grace is free and available. And why not say (as we are slanderously reported and as some claim that we say), “Let us do evil that good may come”? Their condemnation is just. ( Romans...

    And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might...

At the time, he said he just wanted “to be on my own and explore.” But he returned five years and 30,000 miles later, as the youngest person to ever sail around the world solo. His only companion was an ever-changing crew of cats. Robin was a nonconformist in search of something bigger. He was sick of the regimentation of the classroom and craved freedom....

    After finding out she has stage 2 breast cancer, Jillian Hanson thought it would only be fair for both her and her then-boyfriend of three years, Max Allegretti, if she’d give him the heads up that times will get really hard and if he’s not ready for it, it would be okay to leave then. “Jillian told me that it was going to be hard and that she did not know what to expect with everything and if I couldn’t handle it, she wanted to know now,” he said. But Max didn’t actually see that as an option and stuck...
  • Mercy and Truth have met together... another meditation on Psalm 85

    I will hear what God the Lord will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly. Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. ( Psalm 85:8-10)Psalm 85 is a prayer for revival. The psalmist is speaking for all of the godly, pleading in view of previous mercies from God, that wrath would be turned aay, and that God’s people would be brought back to life again....
  • What Successful Women Should Know about Love and Marriage

    Successful women face special barriers in love and marriage, according to one relationship coach. But that doesn’t mean they can’t still strive for a happily ever after. On October 9, the Washington Examiner published an opinion piece on, “Why super-successful women struggle in love.” Relationship expert and author Suzanne Venker claimed that “few, if any, women” can have both “power in the world” and “power in bed.” While she backed up her arguments, her piece left something to be desired by women: encouragement. Venker began by referencing a Wall Street Journal piece, arguing that “As women have become more and...

    The New York Post ^ | September 22, 2019 | Miranda Devine
    There’s a lot said about Donald and Melania Trump’s marriage, most of it insulting and cruel. People who hate the president can’t believe anyone could love him. At best, they regard his wife with pity, as the prisoner of a loveless marriage. “Inside the Trump marriage: Melanie’s burden,” “The Sad Truth,” “Dark Secrets” are typical headlines. “#SaveMelania” memes trended online as Vanity Fair fantasized she would divorce her husband and become a feminist icon. Yet those who attended the state dinner for Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison Friday tell a very different story. They say the affection between the first...

    A Jewish bookie was at the races playing the ponies and losing his shirt. He noticed a Priest step out onto the track and blessed the forehead of one of the horses lining up for the 4th race. Lo and behold, that horse - a long shot won the race. Next race, as the horses lined up, the Priest stepped onto the track. Sure enough, he blessed one of the horses. The bookie made a beeline for a betting window and placed a small bet on the horse. Again, even though it was another long shot, the horse won the...

    An image of a man standing on a plane as his supposed wife reclines across three seats has provoked outrage online. A tweet shared on Thursday by Courtney Lee Johnson, a life coach from Indiana, claimed that an unidentified man had stood in the aisle of the cabin while his wife slept for a full six hours during a long-haul flight. The scenario has drawn heated criticism from social media users who say the man is 'whipped' and the woman is 'selfish' - while some are questioning the validity of the tweet altogether.

    Tuesday on the “Joe Madison Show,” Fair Fight Action Chair and former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams said she would “love” the opportunity to be the 2020 vice-presidential candidate. When Madison asked if she would be interested in being a running mate for the eventual 2020 Democratic nominee, Abrams said, “If the question is would I like the job I’m not going to be coy and say no. Of course, I would love that opportunity.”
