One Last Christmas - Matthew West Official Music Video

From the youtube blurb:

matthewwestmusic December 01, 2010
This is the video my new Christmas song - "One Last Christmas." This song is inspired by the true story of the Locke family and their son Dax.

At just thirteen months old, little Dax was diagnosed with a rare form of Leukemia. He was given two bone marrow transplants as a part of emergency treatment; one from each of his parents. The doctors then told his parents that Dax would most likely not make it to see Christmas.

This song is about the love of a family, and the coming together of an entire community to make sure that this little boy could have one last Christmas. His dad, determined that his son would see Christmas, put up the decorations early. The neighborhood caught on, and did the same. The whole town soon followed suit. A website was built telling his story. Soon, pictures were sent from all over the world of Christmas decorations that had been put up in his honor.

Dax did lose his battle with Leukemia, but not before he got to see one last Christmas. Today, this little boy's legacy lives on, and his parents are making sure it does. They were so touched by the care they received from St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, that they now have a desire to raise enough money to run the entire hospital for one day in honor of their son, Dax. The total cost to run St. Jude's for one day is $1.6 million dollars. Already, they have raised a quarter of a million dollars.

This Christmas, it is on my heart to join forces with the Locke family, and help them in their cause. I would like to encourage you to join us in raising money that will go to an amazing cause in St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital that cares for so many children each year.

Witch-Hunt: Catholics4Equality debuts app to “report hostile activity” from the pew!

A new app by another "catholic" organization with an agenda has been introduced, with instructions to report things DURING MASS...Thomas Peters has more on his blog @, but this part is important... Note who is affiliated with the group:

Quote from the article:

I have uploaded Alioto’s full letter online and have mirrored it in case Catholics For Equality attempts to take the original down and hide the evidence later on.

For those of you who want to put together the pieces, Alioto is the Political Director for Progress Now, a George Soros-funded progressive organization. This places Catholics For Equality firmly in the family of catholyc astroturf organizations bent on undermining the Church’s identity and traditional teaching, turning Catholics against Catholic.

Advocates of Catholic marriage demand Vatican clarifications on divorce

This summer, the Southern Baptist Convention passed a resolution wherein they resolved to “address the spiritual wreckage left in our Southern Baptist churches by our own divorce rates and our silence about the same.” The Baptists also “call on our churches to minister to couples and families in crisis” […] “and, where necessary, through biblical church discipline.”

Macfarlane said, “I hope U.S. Bishops will follow the lead of the U.S. Southern Baptists.”
