    My Mom is finally at peace in the arms of the Lord. After more than a year in a nursing home, she suffered a setback that she couldn't come back from. She had a history of "mini-strokes" or TIA's over the past few years. She always battled back, but she always lost a step or two each time. Two weeks ago, she suffered a severe hemorrhagic stroke. Bleeding on the brain finally left her helpless. After a 5 day stay in the hospital, she was returned to the nursing home this past Tuesday. My two sisters sat with her during...

    Catholic Stand ^ | September 17, 2014 | Leticia Adams
    This morning I woke up and read an article about the Olsteen Predicament. It was kind of weird because the issue of the prosperity gospel has been coming up a lot lately. I watched the video of Victoria Olsteens sermon and wondered why anyone would believe that crap. It is so easy to see that her preaching that our happiness is the ultimate goal of following Christ is completely opposite of what Jesus Himself says in the Gospel. My problems with the Olsteens and people like them such as TD Jakes, Joyce Meyer and so many mega church pastors are...
