‘OBAMA TELLING HOW CONSERVATIVES WILL WREAK AMERICA.’

 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!

‘ WHAT IS EVANGELIZATION? WHAT POPE BENEDICT HAVE TO SAY?’

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.

HOPE IN MIDDLE EAST.

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.

‘PRO-LIFE IS ALL ABOUT LOVE.’

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!

‘LAWMAKERS INTRODUCE LEGISLATION TO PERMANENTLY PREVENT ASIAN CARP FROM HITTING GREAT LAKES!’

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.

‘DO NOT BE AFRAID. HOW JESUS CAN BANISH YOUR FEARS.’

FROM CHRIST IS OUR HOPE 

Sister Ann Shields  Correspondent Of  The Catholic Diocese Of Illinois.

   Good news story that I believe hits home in these tough times we face. Sister Shields make a very good point for all of us. In this writer’s opinion.  Hope you enjoy this as I did reading it.  God Bless………….

  This is  a  good moment to look at the issues of faith in Christ. Times are very difficult in our country right now. People are losing their homes and jobs. Fear is rampant. When everything is out of control, what can you do?

   First, open your Bible to the Gospel Of Mark and read Chapter 5 verse 21-43, out loud. do this now before you continue reading this article. Keep the Bible next to you. Remember that the word inside is living and active, shaper than any two edged sword. It has the power to separate bone from marrow. (Hebrews4-12) In other words, it has the power to reach inside of you touch your spirit and help you see truth more clearly than you ever have before. 

   God’s word has the power to change your life. Because it is easy to become distracted, I want your eyes and your ears to take in words so that the life-giving power of it can penetrate beyond a superficial understandings. Approach this passage with much faith as you have no matter how little it may be.

 you’ll notice that the passage contains two stories both teach us a lot about our faith and perseverance.

   Let take a look at the first story. Jesus has been ministering to great crowds of people., calling  out demons and healing the sick. Ask yourself this question? ‘ What would I done under similar circumstances? Then ask the lord to increase your faith in him. Pay attention here; note the scripture says Jesus says to her, “Daughter your faith has saved you.” Jesus listens to us in the same way. God is never put off by our sins and failing if we are repentant. Never let anything hold you back from bringing your needs to him.

   As you think about these two stories of healing and resurrection, think about what lessons they have  for you? Where are you weak? Can you humbly and honestly place weakness before Jesus and ask him to increase your faith? Ask for a faith that can burn steadily no matter  the seemingly insurmountable obstacles: work, family, health crises. Trust in his love and “Do not be afraid. ”

‘ WHY ARE WE AT WAR?’

 I was asked not too long ago why we are at war? What the purpose is? Why Do I continue to support the war effort? I  was about myself and stepped back a little and gave my answer straight forward as possible.

 

  My friend,  I know ‘War is hell.” as President Truman once said.  We are at war due to the fact if the attacks of 09-11-01.  We have to support our citizen soldiers and win this war. We are at war due to the fact that its a Islam extremism that hate us and our free market society. They tried and failed to stop America. What they did do is  awaken AMERICAN MIGHT as What happened in World War I, World War II, and the Gulf War for example.

     Has we not acted when the Germans sank American ships in open waters The kaiser would have pushed though France, Belgium, and the rest and we would have lost by the time the Doe Boys  got there!

   Had we not acted when Hitler marched though all of Europe and almost England, we would had had our backs to the wall to face the Nazis, Soviets under Stalin, and Japan!

  I support the war because its the correct thing to do. We have to end the rein of terror and round up the people involved in the September 11  attacks. We have no other opinion. We cannot run. There is no hope it will go away.  Just as a low bully in the school yard, we have to face him or run as cowards.

 

  I also feel we have to get that soldier out. You may recall, he left on his own and is now a prisoner of war. The three travelers also.  they went on a trip to Iraq and guess at this point wandered into Iran. A strange ring to events of W.W.I? We may move forward with a answer or make excuse s  for deadly mistakes I always will say!

 

see the web page OPERATION HOMEFRONT.  Its about  the familes left behind while the citizen soldiers  goses to war. Very nice.

‘PARENTS CONSENT NEEDED BEFORE HAVING ABORTION IN IL.’

Dear reader-

  Just in from the Chicago Sun Times in my state regarding parents having to be called on before a youngster has a abortion! This law passed the general assembly last week and was being challenged by the Civil Liberty group  and lost.

   In this writer’s opinion, good. It’s a small step but in the correct direction in regards to stopping abortions in our state. Nice work to conservative Pro-Life Democrats on this!  One the same story, what is going on with her ‘judgeship?’ Turning the story around on abortions, rights to own a gun, and using her own opinions to set laws?

     I hope this will make our senators see that this is a dangerous page we are on. We can stop her by not comfirming or watch our nation go up in a puff of smoke? This writer dose not want to see this happen as you don’t. Why we as citizens have to press our senators into action, just not sit there and nod their heads.  see www.congress.org
