Archdiocese Defends Controversial Sculpture of Abp Weakland

Archdiocese defends controversial sculpture of Archbishop Weakland : Catholic News Agency (CNA)

......In response to this, Julie Wolf, Communications Director for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, told CNA that the bronze relief was commissioned in 2000, which was before the allegations against Weakland began to surface.

“It was commissioned to represent the archdiocese at that point in time, when Archbishop Weakland was archbishop, when Fr. Carl Last was the rector of the Cathedral and he still is,” said Wolf, who continued to tell CNA that the piece is intended “also to represent the people who make up the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, including children and adults and various ethnic groups

The rest of the article goes on to justify the placement of the sculpture. While I do not necessarily agree with SNAP (Survivors Network of those Abused) on everything, they are justified in being outraged. Certainly, if it was truly commissioned in 2000, there has been sufficient time to stop its creation, or even to change it, removing Abp Weakland's likeness. If NOT, then it should have been put into the back room, or the Sacristy with a small plaque that would remind EVERYONE who sees it of the EASE that one can fall into Sin, and a caution to avoid the occasion of it. IMHO, it should NEVER have been placed in the main Church, knowing the Truth that came out after it was commissioned.

Another thought: When was this put into place? After Dolan left, before Listecki came? With or without the knowledge and consent of either?

This was a time of SCANDAL, and there should be NO honor given to a man who was involved in homosexuality, cover-up, using Diocesan funds to pay for that cover-up, and who resigned in disgrace.

We are called to repentance, true, and forgiveness, again, true. However, we are not called to act as though nothing happened.

It should be removed as soon as possible, and the spot where it was to stand should remain empty as a reminder of that sad time for EVERYONE, but especially for any of those who had any involvement in that era!

Lord, have Mercy!

God bless!

Wasinger Demands Napolitano Resignation

Says Homeland Security Secretary has failed miserably

COTTONWOOD FALLS -- Today, Rob Wasinger, Republican candidate for Congress in the first district of Kansas, called for the resignation of Janet Napolitano, United States Secretary of Homeland Security.

"Immediately following the failed Christmas bombing of a Northwest Airliner headed to Detroit, Secretary Napolitano was completely silent," said Wasinger. "When Napolitano finally spoke up, she claimed the 'system worked,' and just 24 hours later reversed herself and said the 'system failed miserably.' Napolitano has failed miserably as Secretary, spending her time waging war on Obama's political opponents instead of protecting our country from radical jihadists that seek to wage war on our American way of life. This is Napolitano's second strike given her poor mishandling of the attack on Fort Hood, and we simply cannot risk a third strike. Therefore, I call on Secretary Napolitano to resign immediately and demand that the President appoint a qualified national security expert who will do their job to ensure that Americans are confident in our government to keep America safe."

Wasinger is former chief-of-staff to Sam Brownback, where he worked on critical National Security issues affecting Kansas and the nation, including Fort Riley, the McConnell Air Force Base, and the Kansas National Guard. Wasinger witnessed Flight 77 moments before it hit the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.

National Cancer Institute Researcher Admits Abortion-Breast Cancer Link True

National Cancer Institute Researcher Admits Abortion-Breast Cancer Link True

From the article:

The Dolle study, conducted with the prestigious Janet Daling group of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle -- one of the first to receive recognition for highlighting the abortion-breast cancer link -- concerns the link between oral contraceptives and breast cancer.

The study examined women for triple-negative breast cancer, a subset of breast cancer cases with a particularly aggressive and treatment-resistant cancer type.

The data yielded a strong association between TNBC and oral contraceptives and found a 320% risk increase for breast cancer over those who never used contraception.

Down, Hero Dad and Palin By Leticia Velasquez

So many babies that have a 'poor' diagnosis die by abortion. The joys that they can add to everyone's life is minimized, while the responsibilities are over-emphasized, and the 'quality of life' is added to the pile. But that 'quality of life' is not the child's that is thought of, though supporters of this type of genocide will tell you that it is. What is really being taken into account is the problems that child will cause for society, and the pain that will be felt by others, disrupting THEIR 'quality of life'.

The latest thinking on the subject of 'quality of life' is not for the individual, who is given no real choice in the matter, but how others VIEW what they perceive to be a life that is not 'normal'. 'They' perceive suffering, and 'they' can't handle it, or do not want to, so therefore, the individual is living a life that is 'too hard', 'too uncomfortable', 'too painful'...and the most damning ... "I wouldn't want to live that way"... sometimes couched in terms of the individual 'not wanting to live this way'.

So, babies are aborted, disabled are starved, dehydrated to death. They are inconvenient. They are not productive. They are expensive. Where did this thinking make its debut? In the T4 Program of Nazi Germany, begun by a father who asked the court system for 'Mercy' on his disabled son. MANY died as a result of that court order.

But, then there are Dads like Thomas Vander Woude. (And Moms like Leticia and Sarah Palin)

Thomas Vander Woude, a Virginia farmer, devout Catholic, and 66-year-old father of seven. Just a few days before, Tom saw his beloved 20-year-old son Joseph fall into a sewer, where he struggled to breathe, immersed in filth. Without hesitating, Tom dove into the sewer, holding his son’s head up so he could be rescued, sacrificing his life for a young man whom 90% of expectant parents reject; Josie has Down syndrome. Sen. Brownback told Tom’s extraordinary story in his speech.

Thomas Vander Woude’s mighty expression of fatherly love, combined with Sarah Palin’s gentle example of motherly love — refusing to abort a child whose birth complicated her career as governor of Alaska — brought this once forsaken little bill to victory in the Senate.

The power of courageous love had inspired a lackluster, morally bankrupt Senate to a great act — for which it will be long remembered.

Fr Z: The Apostolic Pardon

What Does The Prayer Really Say? The Apostolic Pardon - Fathers, do you know it?

That could read... CATHOLICS, do you know it??

I didn't. Do you?? I grew up in Catholic schools through 9th grade, and I do not recall EVER having heard of it. Extreme Unction, yes. Later, Sacrament of the Sick, yes... but The Apostolic Pardon? Nope, not once... why? (and do not use the old cliche that it is because of VII.... for all of my Catholic school teaching was prior to changes, having been in the Aspirancy my Freshman year of High School, 63-64 school year... the changes came later. )

Hatch, Blackwell and Klukowski: Why the Health-Care Bills Are Unconstitutional

JANUARY 2, 2010

Why the Health-Care Bills Are Unconstitutional
If the government can mandate the purchase of insurance, it can do anything..


President Obama's health-care bill is now moving toward final passage. The policy issues may be coming to an end, but the legal issues are certain to continue because key provisions of this dangerous legislation are unconstitutional. Legally speaking, this legislation creates a target-rich environment. We will focus on three of its more glaring constitutional defects.

First, the Constitution does not give Congress the power to require that Americans purchase health insurance. Congress must be able to point to at least one of its powers listed in the Constitution as the basis of any legislation it passes. None of those powers justifies the individual insurance mandate. Congress's powers to tax and spend do not apply because the mandate neither taxes nor spends. The only other option is Congress's power to regulate interstate commerce.

Congress has many times stretched this power to the breaking point, exceeding even the expanded version of the commerce power established by the Supreme Court since the Great Depression. It is one thing, however, for Congress to regulate economic activity in which individuals choose to engage; it is another to require that individuals engage in such activity. That is not a difference in degree, but instead a difference in kind. It is a line that Congress has never crossed and the courts have never sanctioned.

In fact, the Supreme Court in United States v. Lopez (1995) rejected a version of the commerce power so expansive that it would leave virtually no activities by individuals that Congress could not regulate. By requiring Americans to use their own money to purchase a particular good or service, Congress would be doing exactly what the court said it could not do.

Please continue to read the rest of the article for the second and third points that the authors make:

Hatch, Blackwell and Klukowski: Why the Health-Care Bills Are Unconstitutional -

I certainly DO agree that this bill is unconstitutional for many of the same reasons that are given in this article. But I would add at least one more. This bill will require ME, a taxpayer, to pay for abortion, which is totally repugnant to me as a citizen and as a human being. To cause me to in any way pay for the murder of an innocent unborn baby goes against everything I have ever stood for! As a health care professional, it goes against my conscience to in ANYWAY PARTICIPATE in abortion, including the use of my tax money. As a woman, it goes against everything that is in me; this is true for me also, as a mother, grandmother. As a Catholic, it violates every belief I have that Life is sacred and to be cherished from conception to natural death. And that infringes on my rights as a Catholic to my freedom of religion.

Abortion is NOT health care.

True, it consists of an ELECTIVE surgery, and that is key. ELECTIVE surgeries are not necessary surgeries.

Sadly, in this particular elective surgery, an innocent baby is murdered, sometimes moments before it is born.

I do not want to pay for it... ever.

It is the taking of an innocent life, and that individual has the same rights as I have to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of happiness that is inalienable, God-given.

God bless, and Lord, have Mercy!

Oh, I love this!!

Quoting Bishop Thomas J Tobin:
"Secondly, it seems to be that people come to Mass on Sunday because they long to hear the Word of God preached with conviction and enthusiasm. They want homilies that are doctrinally sound, personally prepared and relevant to contemporary life."

And this:
"In short, the faithful want preachers to preach as Jesus did, with power and conviction, challenging people, not avoiding difficult issues. People should leave Sunday Mass motivated to live the gospel throughout the week, but confident they possess the spiritual means to do so"
Most people may immediately think of the subject of abortion, but I don't.
Others may also think of artificial contraception, or even co-habitation, or same sex attraction, but I don't. Seriously.
I think of Mark 10:1-12 with optional reading of verses 13-16.
To the best of my knowledge, this section of the Gospel is read ONE TIME IN THREE YEARS in the Sunday cycles. In all the years I have been observing, (since after 1983) not once have I heard a sermon based on the Truth of these words. I have 'polled' friends and relatives on those days, as well, and again... until this past year, where one person shared a homily that was online from their priest.
I have been watching and listening for years... subconciously since the separation and divorce of my in-law's, and consciously since it invaded my own home..... and in doing so, it passed on to the next generation.

Not one sermon on:
  • the indissolubility of Marriage, though for the past 40 years, we have been in great need of this teaching!!
  • the real meaning of the 'exception clause' according to Catholic teaching,
  • significantly, NOT ONE reference to 1COR 7:10-11, which is also the Lord's direction to us to remain single or reconcile,
  • OR to Malachi 2:14-17 where God tells us very clearly that He HATES divorce.
Not even a mention of:
  • the evil of civil divorce--or even that it IS sin,
  • 'remarriage' according to what Jesus Himself says in five different places in the New Testament, where He includes every single person involved!
And even when they USE the 'optional part of the reading', no priest or deacon has ever mentioned:
  • the harm divorce (and therefore, also 'remarriage') does to children,
  • the dangers they will forever face for their OWN salvation, their OWN marriages, their own children as a result of the divorce of their parents.
(a proper use of the Suffer the Little Children to come unto me, since so many LEAVE the Church after their parents' divorce...)!!!
AND IF THE PEOPLE DO NOT HEAR IT FROM THE PULPIT, THEY CANNOT LIVE THE TRUTH, and "MY PEOPLE PERISH FOR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE", says the Lord... and so do His very valid Marriages!!! Where else are His People going to go to LEARN the Truth, that their marriages (the first one) are VALID and INDISSOLUBLE?? The evil becomes a boil, -- an infection that is passed on to friends, family, neighbors -- growing with each passing generation. False teachers arise, giving 'compassionate platitudes' that will jeopardize the very Salvation He calls us to.
That deadly infection spreads everywhere--including into the US Tribunals, in counseling sessions with priests and religious, deacons, counselors, attorneys, and even in the conversion of others to Catholicism!!!
That ONE TIME reading of Mark 10 is in Cycle B:
27th Sunday of Year B Gen 2:18-24 Ps 128:1-2, 3, 4-5, 6 Heb 2:9-11 Mark 10:2-16 or 10:2-12
The readings listed are:
Gen 2
[18] Then the LORD God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him."
[19] So out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name.
[20] The man gave names to all cattle, and to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for the man there was not found a helper fit for him.
[21] So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh;
[22] and the rib which the LORD God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man.
[23] Then the man said, "This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man."
[24] Therefore a man leaves his father and his mother and cleaves to his wife, and they become one flesh.

Ps 128

[1] Blessed is every one who fears the LORD, who walks in his ways! [2] You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be happy, and it shall be well with you. [3] Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table. [4] Lo, thus shall the man be blessed who fears the LORD. [5] The LORD bless you from Zion! May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life! [6] May you see your children's children! Peace be upon Israel!

Heb 2

[9] But we see Jesus, who for a little while was made lower than the angels, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for every one.
[10] For it was fitting that he, for whom and by whom all things exist, in bringing many sons to glory, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through suffering.
[11] For he who sanctifies and those who are sanctified have all one origin. That is why he is not ashamed to call them brethren,
Mark 10
[1] And he left there and went to the region of Judea and beyond the Jordan, and crowds gathered to him again; and again, as his custom was, he taught them.
[2] And Pharisees came up and in order to test him asked, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?"
[3] He answered them, "What did Moses command you?"
[4] They said, "Moses allowed a man to write a certificate of divorce, and to put her away."
[5] But Jesus said to them, "For your hardness of heart he wrote you this commandment.
[6] But from the beginning of creation, `God made them male and female.'
[7] `For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife,
[8] and the two shall become one flesh.' So they are no longer two but one flesh.
[9] What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder."
[10] And in the house the disciples asked him again about this matter.
[11] And he said to them, "Whoever divorces his wife and marries another, commits adultery against her;
[12] and if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery."
( Optional )
[13] And they were bringing children to him, that he might touch them; and the disciples rebuked them.
[14] But when Jesus saw it he was indignant, and said to them, "Let the children come to me, do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of God.
[15] Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it."
[16] And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands upon them.
NEVER read in any of the three cycles:
Malachi 2
[13] And this again you do. You cover the LORD's altar with tears, with weeping and groaning because he no longer regards the offering or accepts it with favor at your hand.
[14] You ask, "Why does he not?" Because the LORD was witness to the covenant between you and the wife of your youth, to whom you have been faithless, though she is your companion and your wife by covenant.
[15] Has not the one God made and sustained for us the spirit of life? And what does he desire? Godly offspring. So take heed to yourselves, and let none be faithless to the wife of his youth.
[16] "For I hate divorce, says the LORD the God of Israel, and covering one's garment with violence, says the LORD of hosts. So take heed to yourselves and do not be faithless."
LUKE 16:18 "Every one who divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery, and he who marries a woman divorced from her husband commits adultery."
Matt 5
[31] "It was also said, `Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.'
[32] But I say to you that every one who divorces his wife, except on the ground of unchastity, makes her an adulteress; and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.
Note: Not only not read, it is skipped right over in Cycle A
6th Sunday of Year A Sir 15:15-20 Ps 119:1-2, 4-5, 17-18, 33-34 1 Cor 2:6-10 Matt 5:17-37 or 5:20-22, 27-28, 33-34, 37

The same thing is true with Matt 19 AND 1 COR 7:10-12!!!

Matt 19

[1] Now when Jesus had finished these sayings, he went away from Galilee and entered the region of Judea beyond the Jordan;
[2] and large crowds followed him, and he healed them there.
[3] And Pharisees came up to him and tested him by asking, "Is it lawful to divorce one's wife for any cause?"
[4] He answered, "Have you not read that he who made them from the beginning made them male and female,
[5] and said, `For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh'?
[6] So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder."
[7] They said to him, "Why then did Moses command one to give a certificate of divorce, and to put her away?"
[8] He said to them, "For your hardness of heart Moses allowed you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so.
[9] And I say to you: whoever divorces his wife, except for unchastity, and marries another, commits adultery."
[10] The disciples said to him, "If such is the case of a man with his wife, it is not expedient to marry."
[11] But he said to them, "Not all men can receive this saying, but only those to whom it is given.
[12] For there are eunuchs who have been so from birth, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. He who is able to receive this, let him receive it."
[13] Then children were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked the people;
[14] but Jesus said, "Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven."
[15] And he laid his hands on them and went away.
24th Sunday of Year A Sir 27:30-28:7 Ps 103:1-2, 3-4, 9-10, 11-12 Rom 14:7-9 Matt 18:21-35
25th Sunday of Year A Isa 55:6-9 Ps 145:2-3, 8-9, 17-18 Phil 1:20-24, 27 Matt 20:1-16
1 COR 7
[10] To the married I give charge, not I but the Lord, that the wife should not separate from her husband
[11] (but if she does, let her remain single or else be reconciled to her husband) -- and that the husband should not divorce his wife.
NOTE that the above is a clear direction FROM THE LORD, while in the next verses, St Paul tells us that this is from him, NOT the Lord... St Paul has clearly stated what Jesus teaches!!!! That is to be our stance .... REMAIN SINGLE OR BE RECONCILED!!! NO DATING, NO PREPARING FOR ANOTHER MARRIAGE... Reconcile or remain single (divorced)...
While I SELDOM hear anyone quote those two verses to me, I certainly get a LOT of people quoting the rest of that section!!! However, I also point out that NOWHERE does it say to go ahead and divorce your spouse.... and.... it also does not say go ahead and marry again, especially when one takes in in context with the above direction from the Lord via Paul.... remain single or be reconciled....
[12] To the rest I say, not the Lord, that if any brother has a wife who is an unbeliever, and she consents to live with him, he should not divorce her.
[13] If any woman has a husband who is an unbeliever, and he consents to live with her, she should not divorce him.
[14] For the unbelieving husband is consecrated through his wife, and the unbelieving wife is consecrated through her husband. Otherwise, your children would be unclean, but as it is they are holy.
[15] But if the unbelieving partner desires to separate, let it be so; in such a case the brother or sister is not bound. For God has called us to peace.
[16] Wife, how do you know whether you will save your husband? Husband, how do you know whether you will save your wife?
2nd Sunday of Year B 1 Sam 3:3-10, 19 Ps 40:2+4, 7-8a, 8b-9, 10 1 Cor 6:13-15, 17-20 John 1:35-42
3rd Sunday of Year B Jon 3:1-5, 10 Ps 25:4-5, 6-7, 8-9 1 Cor 7:29-31 Mark 1:14-20

"Divorce tears marriage apart.

It desolates both husband and wife.

It leaves the children not only in tears but also in misery.

We do not deny that there can be serious disagreement between husband and wife, but divorce is not the solution. When husband and wife have a disagreement, they should reflect, pray, sit together and discuss.

Accept fault where you are wrong, ask for pardon, or consult a priest or other spiritual adviser, but do not divorce."

Becky Kelley - Where's the Line to See Jesus?

"Where's the Line to See Jesus?"
(An Original Song)
Performed by father and daughter, Steve Haupt and Becky Kelley
Inspired by grandson, Spencer Reijgers

Written by Steve Haupt and Chris Loesch

Recorded at Shock City Studios, Saint Louis, MO
Produced by Chris Loesch

Video by Robbie Haupt and Greg Haupt

The story behind the song, as told by Steve Haupt:
"While at the mall last year, my 4 year old grandson saw kids lined up excitedly to see Santa Claus. Having been taught as a toddler that Christmas is the holiday that Christians celebrate the birth of God's son, with the innocence of a child, he asked his mom, "where's the line to see Jesus"? If Christmas is Jesus' birthday, why don't we see Him more? As his grandpa, I was so happy that little Spencer understood the meaning of Christmas at such a tender age, and then the words for a song were jotted down in just a few minutes. The song was inspired by my grandson, and the message was inspired by my Savior. Out of the mouths of babes come profound truths that many adults can not understand. Hopefully Spencer's observation and our song will cause people to reflect on the love of Jesus, and the certainty that one day we will all stand in line to see Jesus. Merry Christmas everyone."
