Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Catholic American.
Wonder why Pres. Obama is on the attack telling us how Republicans will ruin America and his plan is the best. How he is telling us to shape up and ‘stop crying.’ Is he getting worried that he is through in 2012 perhaps? People tired of his Tax and spend policy and high unemployment problem? Can’t blame Bush on this one my friend. ‘ Your problem, you fix it!
Unemployment is getting worse as days go on, treating the recession as a joke, and endless excuses in between! Pass that bill’ bit is getting old fast and this writer is worried about four more years of Socialism programs and give aways we can’t afford! His wife telling us what to eat and not eat for example. If I want to eat hamburgers and smoke a case of smokes, that is my business and health concern not hers.
Hopefully, a conservative Democrat will run ( not Mrs. Clinton) with plan for the economy and winning this war! Pro- life is also a plus and a friend of Israel. Time for change for sure. If not Republican in the general election is needed! Our values in mind as Americans not Obama!
EVANGELIZATION IS ROOTED IN A PERSONAL ENCOUNTER WITH JESUS CHRIST.
‘ Christianity is not a new philosophy or new morality. We are Christians only if we encounter Christ…..Only in this personal relationship with Christ, only in this encounter with the Risen One do we really become Christians……. There fore, let us pray to the Lord to enlighten us so that, in our world, HE will grant us the encounter with his presence, and thus give us a lively faith, an open heart, and great charity for all, capable of renewing the world. ‘
EVANGELIZATION IS A MISSION OF THE CHURCH.
” We cannot keep to ourselves the word of eternal life given to us in our encounter with Jesus Christ: they are ment for everyone, for every man and woman…. It is our responsibility to pass on what, by God grace, we ourselves have received’ — Pope Benedict XVI Vacican City on September 3, 2008 Well put in the Catholic American’s opinion.
I hope the problems settles down. Don’t need an upheaval of their government or the Muslim Brotherhood taking over the Suez . For that matter, spilling into Israel. A bigger mess to clean up. I say act with care on this and don’t over act Too much at stake here . Have to watch our own interests. Let pray all goes well! See this and other interesting posts here at the Catholic American.
HELP OUR OWN.
BY DEACON RON YURCUS
‘ Recently in a small group gathering, a well-educated woman shared what her father taught her about abortion when she was a young teenaged girl. She was surprised that her dad did not make a strong stand about the evils of sin or abortion. But he chose to talk about love.
Imagine, he said, if you had an abortion, what would it be like if you went to Heaven after having been forgiven for the sin you committed. As you enter the heavenly kingdom among the first to meet you is the child you chose to abort.
Parents who love their children learn to listen rather than always just talking to them. Aborting a child takes away the chance to listen and learn about the wonderful gift this love could be. Life is filled with a series of cross es and blessings. Isn’t it sad that some, who have an unwanted pregnancy, choose abortion and never got to experience the gift of life given to them?
Most agree that life begins at conception, but some are not patient and loving to see this gift mature into a real treasure for us. May we continue to pray for those who have been given life themselves, but are unable to love enough to let them live.’
In this writer’s opinion, WELL PUT DEACON! Call you church if you have any questions concerns, or in need of help. Pray for the sick , dying, and unemployed too. Back candidates Democrat or Republican who are pro-life and will fight for the unborn and roll back soon Roe v.Wade after this November!
GOD BLESS YOU!
FROM WASHINGTON, D.C.
Legislation is being introduces By Sen. Durbin that would keep out the Asian Carp from the Great Lakes area by using the Army Corp. Of Engineers to block off the Mississippi from the Great Lakes. Living in the Great Lakes area of Illinois, I wonder if this is wise and what would happen if that is done?
Would this get rid of the carp that is there and killing off plants and fish? How would they stop the carp from increasing in numbers and have a problem anyway? Not to mention the money that would be thrown into this? This is a question.
I can see the only way to do this is to dam off the area from the Great lakes. What would happen to shipping and coal vessels and the towns that depends on that and food goods? Not to mention employment being killed off more. How can they get ships though? This writer disagrees on this part.
Finally, this writer feels that there is more study needed before a cut off is made that will only be a temp answer and make the economy worse and poorer also. Congress better try something else not waste time and money on this project!
p.s. I seen a little comment from the same paper ( that shall be nameless) that states ‘YOU MIGHT BE A REPUBLICAN IF …. YOU EVER TOLD A CHILD THAT OSCAR THE GROUCH LIVES IN A TRASH CAN BECAUSE HE IS LAZY AND DON’T WANT TO CONTRIBUTE TO SOCIETY.’ Excuse me? you mean those who are able to work but choose to rip off the system paid by us the hard-working American. Not those who are in real need In this conservative Democrat’s opinion! I am not the only Democrat that thinks this! Oh for November to get here.
CALL ON CONGRESS TODAY. TELL THEM NO TO OUR MONEY FOR ABORTION AND GO WITH ‘SUPPORT LIFE ACT’ THAT IS STALLING OUT IN CONGRESS! See the link below to contact congress.
