    White Double THE PERIOD INTERVENING between the Purification of our blessed Lady and Ash Wednesday (when it occurs at its latest date) gives us thirty-six days; and these offer us feasts of every order of saint. The apostles have given us St. Mathias, and St. Peter’s Chair at Antioch; the martyrs have sent us, from their countless choir, Simeon, Blase, Valentine, Faustinus and Jovita, Perpetua and Felicitas, and the forty soldiers of Sebaste, whose feast is kept tomorrow; the holy pontiffs have been represented by Andrew Corsini, and Peter Damnian, who, like Thomas of Aquin, is one of the...

    Gold star widow Natasha De Alencar released the audio of a phone conversation she had with President Donald Trump in April about the death of her husband who was killed in Afghanistan. I am so sorry to hear about the whole situation. What a horrible thing, except that hes an unbelievable hero, Trump told her in the call about her husband Army Staff Sgt. Mark R. De Alencar, which The Washington Post released. Thank you. I really, really appreciated it, she said. I really do, sir. Trump also told the widow if she is ever in Washington D.C. that she...

    White Semidouble AT the beginning of the thirteenth century, the plateau of Upper Asia poured down a fresh torrent of barbarians, more terrible than all their predecessors. The one fragile barrier, which the Græco-Slavonian civilization could oppose to the Mongols had been swept away by the first wave of the invasion; not one of the States formed under the protection of the Byzantine Church had any prospect for the future. But beyond this Ruthania, which had fallen into dissolution before being conquered, the Roman Church had had time to form a brave and generous people: when the hour arrived,...

    White Double “WHO, O Lord, has treated Thee thus?” “They that despise Me and forget My love.” This was the first revelation of the Son of God to Bridget of Sweden. Francis of Assisi, raising before the world the standard of the cross, had announced that Christ was about to recommence the dolorous way; not now in His own Person, but in the Church, who is flesh of His flesh. The truth of this declaration Bridget experienced from the very opening of that fatal fourteenth century, during which such innumerable disasters, the results of crime, fell at once upon...

    Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore on Tuesday slammed President Trumps address to Congress, saying the president "used" the widow of a slain Navy SEAL as an f-you to those criticizing the raid on an al Qaeda base in Yemen that killed him. Carryn Owens, the widow of Chief Petty Officer William "Ryan" Owens, was in the audience during Trumps speech and received a standing ovation from the chamber as she fought back tears. Moore said Trump invited Owens as a prop to deflect criticism of the mission. Thats why shes there, as sort of an f-you to the people who are...

    Of all the moments from President Trumps first address to Congress, the most riveting piece of political theater was his tribute to the widow of fallen Navy SEAL William Ryan Owens. The presidents critics and supporters alike admired it. Midway through his speech, the president gestured to Owens widow, Carryn, who was a guest in the balcony seated with presidential daughter Ivanka Trump. We are blessed to be joined tonight by Carryn Owens, Mr. Trump said. Ryan died as he lived: a warrior, and a hero - battling against terrorism and securing our nation. Ryans legacy is etched into eternity....

    Mombasa (Kenya) (AFP) - The widow of a radical imam was arrested Wednesday in Mombasa for alleged links to one of three female assailants shot dead while attacking the Kenyan city's main police station, a police source said.

The assailants were alleged to be "sympathisers" of the Islamic State group.

    If you’ve ever wondered just how low leftwing CNN is willing to stoop in its never-ending quest to smear Christians as bigots, the video below should help answer that question. Using a series of snide and leading questions, just one day after her husband was murdered by Islamic terrorist Syed Farook, CNN’s Gary Tuchman attempted to get the widow of Nicholas Thalasinos to indict her own husband as a Christian, anti-Muslim bigot. You might want to take a blood pressure pill before pressing play: (Video) RedState correctly points out that there was a legitimate way for CNN to pursue this

    London - Almost two years after the suicide bomb attacks in London, British police Wednesday arrested the widow of the alleged ringleader, along with three men, on suspicion of supporting terrorism. The 29-year-old woman, named as Hasina Patel, was the wife of Sidique Khan, the suspected ringleader of the four-men suicide cell which blew itself up in the attacks on July 7, 2005. A total of 52 passengers died and more than 700 were injured in the bombings of three Underground trains and a London bus. Patel was arrested with two men in the West Yorkshire region, in northern Britain,...

But no one seems to have brought up a bullying business practice he’s particularly fond of: eminent domain.The billionaire mogul-turned-reality TV celebrity, who says he wants to work on behalf of “the silent majority,” has had no compunction about benefiting from the coercive power of the state to kick innocent Americans out of their homes.For more than 30 years Vera Coking lived in a three-story house just off the Boardwalk in Atlantic City.

    A couple of years back, I had the pleasure of conducting a sit-down interview with filmmaker Joss Whedon for Newsweek magazine. The occasion was his post-Avengers passion project, Much Ado About Nothingan impeccably staged and delightfully droll riff on the Shakespeare classic filmed with a cast of pals over 12 days at Whedons Santa Monica home. The experience was, according to Whedon, a spiritual cleansing of sorts; a respite from the drudgery of assembling a gazillion-dollar superhero epic that reminded him why he fell in love with visual storytelling in the first place. And, like many film and television projects...

    Having changed her Facebook profile picture to a "V...for Vendetta" face mask, the widow of former Zurich Insurance CFO Pierre Wauthier said she and her family cannot accept Zurichs claim that his death wasnt brought on by undue stress. As Bloomberg reports, Switzerlands biggest insurer said in November that no undue pressure was put on Wauthier, who said in a suicide note that then-Chairman Josef Ackermann had created an unbearable working environment. But, his wife is demanding to know why her husband's former boss resigned if he had not accepted blame for the death, and why details of tensions at...

    The French preacher Lacordaire once said that the vocation of a soldier is next in dignity to the priesthood, not only because it commissioned him to defend justice on the field of battle and order on the field of peace, but also because it called him to the spirit and intention of sacrifice. It is the soldier's high calling to the defense of justice and freedom which makes him (or should) so loved. It was a soldier who first spoke the words recalled by the Church during every Mass at Holy Communion: "Lord, I am not worthy to have Thee...

    A Fla. city is set to evict a widow for her unique lifestyle of living off the grid. Robin Speronis told WFTX-TV that she was given an eviction notice after the station aired a story about how she chooses to live in a home without modern amenities, such as running water and electricity. A code enforcement officer came, knocked on the door then posts a placard that says uninhabitable property, do not enter, Robin said. Putting a woman who lives by herself, who is a widow, out on the street without any due process of law is unfathomable, she added....

    **SNIP** Lautenberg died in June after nearly three decades in the U.S. Senate. Many people would agree that he is owed a debt of gratitude but not everybody agrees that his widow Bonnie should receive $174,000, funded by taxpayers. Lautenberg was worth nearly $60-million. I dont think its right. I mean most us cant afford death benefits like that. You know we would be happy to have a little bit saved just to bury ourselves, Wayne resident Carol Dabaghian said. The payoff was buried in the government shutdown bill. It is a death benefit that is almost always approved and...

    BOSTON (AP) Every time the widow of suspected Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev leaves her parents' house, federal agents watching the residence follow her in unmarked vehicles. Federal authorities are placing intense pressure on what they know to be the inner circle of the two bombing suspects, arresting three college buddies of surviving brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, and keeping Tamerlan's 24-year-old widow, Katherine Russell, in the public eye with their open surveillance and leaks to media about investigators' focus on her. Legal experts say it's part of their quest not just to determine whether Russell and the friends are culpable...
