Our Parish Priest did it all, when I was a little girl. He did All the:
1. Sunday Masses
2. Daily Masses
4. Stations of the Cross
5. He cleaned the Church and Rectory
6. Shoveled snow
7. Taught All Catechism Classes 1-12
8. Adult Instructions
10. Bought holy books for a Library
11. May Crownings
12. Visited the Sick
13. Buried the Dead
14. Wrote, Printed and Mailed Out the Weekly Bulletin
15. Had Roller Skating Parties twice a year for Grades 1-4, 5-8, and 9-12.
16. Decorated the Church for Easter and Christmas
17. He was the Maintenance Man, too.
This Priest taught the Catholic Faith, by word and deed.
No priest has ever matched his excellence.
My personality is more like his, than my own dad.
I wanted to go to daily Mass, when I was very little, because my mom went. She did not take me to daily Mass, until I was four years old and eleven months.
My first daily Mass was at St Edwards. After Consecration of the bread into Christ’s Body; from the elevated Host I heard Jesus, speak to me. “This Priest, will teach you all about Me.”
And, this locution turned true.
Father G taught All Catechism Classes.
Monday 1-4 Grades
Tuesday 5-8 Grades
Wednesday 9-12 Grades
I learned more from his Bible History and Baltimore Catechism Classes, than I did in any other class, since.
He was one in a million. A saint. Thanks God, for that Priest’s Priesthood. RIP Fr. G.
In August 2002 Mass, in Toronto, Canada: Blessed Pope John Paul II said, “Don’t think of the Bad Priests in your life. Think of the Good Priests in your life. I can only think of Fr Boland, Fr G, and Fr Hardon. That’s about it.
I deleted the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast Video. I follow no woman who dresses suggestively, immodestly or sexy. She ain’t got nothing to teach me.
EWTN and the Papal Nuncio to the United States may omissively ignore it, but I don’t.
I do not wink at sin. Or let it pass. And, I turn the station.
(I saw Necklines, and Hemlines go from bad to worse, in the 1960′s up until now. Even men dress immodestly now.)
(And, why television ads show underwear ads for men and women is beyond me.)
Since Mother Angelica left the Control of EWTN to others, I’ve seen EWTN cave into social pressures, to conform to modern society’s follies. I refuse to be taught by men, women or priests who have socially and religiously inept issues. Either they believe in what the Church teaches or they do not.
CATHOLIC Women went, from uncovering their heads in Church, to uncovering their bodies, as well. St Paul was right.

Entire article found on this link: Melinda Gates Promotes Abortion at Mtg, Attacks Catholics .
“In their Annual Letter for 2012, the Gates Foundation draws a direct connection between “unsustainable” population growth and poverty and posits contraception as an essential tool to ensuring that “populations in countries like Nigeria will grow significantly less than projected.” Even recent history shows that governments that make fertility reduction a priority can easily slip into coercive modes such as what Gates recognized happened in Peru not long ago. The US government has said that even goals and timetables for contraceptive use are inherently coercive.”
“Gates was particularly critical of the Catholic Church. She singled out Catholic social teaching as an obstacle to access to contraception throughout the world, stating that “as a practicing Catholic,” and “in the tradition of the great Catholic scholars,” it is “important to question received teachings,” in particular “the one saying that birth control is a sin.”
My 2 Cents Worth
. She isn’t very bright, is she? Veiled Racism, Anti-Marriage, Anti-Child and Anti-Catholicism. Guess I will have to boycott her and her husband’s software products.
Two can play this game. Last time I checked, Jesus’ words to Peter still hold true:
“You are Peter. And, Upon This Rock, I will build MY CHURCH! And, The GATES — (Pun Intended) — OF HELL Will NOT Prevail — Against!”
So try as you might, Melinda Gates, you won’t succeed. We Will. NOT U!
Boy oh boy. She’s not the sharpest knife, in the drawer is she? God bless damn fools, who try to re-invent the wheel. I don’t follow such nonsense. If she truly knew her Catholic Faith and her Generative Processes, she would not be spewing out, such Anti-Nigeria, Anti-Family, and Anti-Catholic nonsense.
Melinda Gates utters Pure Pig Slop!
Boy, I bet their sex life is non-existent!
Her eggs are probably all fried up, with all the drugs she takes to avoid, her fertile infertile cycle. Contracepting women irritate the Hell out of me.
They do not know their bodies, their Catholic Faith nor medical evidence, proving she’s wrong. She needs to go back home : and relearn this before opening her mouth to emit so much stale, hot air. Disgruntled, unfruitful, contracepting women are so ignorant of the Joys of Womanhood. She’s kicking against the goad and doesn’t even know it.
Her fight is with Our Creator and Lord. Like Saul, she is persecuting Christians, on her way to Nigeria not Damascus.
“Father, forgive her, and those who think like her. They Know NOT – what they are doing.” Catholicism is more a name tag, to her than a lived reality.
Get thee to a Confessional Lady! And, shut up! You don’t speak for me as a Catholic Woman.
I’m older and wiser. And, I miss being younger. I’d take you on nose to nose. You’re wrong! You’re wrong! You’re wrong!
Nothing better than to have sex, with your husband; when your fruitful, and intuiting that because all the signs and symptoms of fertility — that God will bring a baby — the fruit of you and your husband’s love — nine months later!
I am tired of Infertile Women who have rendered their bodies, chemically sterile, wanting to be “BOSS Of The WORLD!”
They are so Racist Sounding – so Anti-Catholic sounding and such damn control freaks. Let’s hope she wises up! One can hope!
I’ll offer up my life, so she will repent, and undo the harms she has done all over the world. To Mrs Gates: “What does it profit you, to gain the whole world and suffer the loss of your soul?” Or lead others down that same Pea Patch! You will be held accountable for promoting evil to others. The degree of her culpability, only God knows. My job is to console God by loving her and the people and countries she ill-serves, with this Culture of Death.
“Melinda Gates : Leave Nigeria alone! You do not know what you’re doing!”
I pray that you FAIL in your Contraceptive Ideologies, and Abortion and Anti- Catholic endeavors. I fight against the enemy of my soul and the souls of others! The devil is working on Mrs Gates overtime. My job is to pray for her and oppose her Anti-Child agenda. Flowers are more prolific than she is.
Mrs Gates is such a sad and unfulfilled woman! I’ll boycott her husband’s Microsoft Products, next time, I make a purchase.

Pray a Hail Mary for Melinda Gates / better yet a Rosary for her every day. Thanks.
If people like Bill and Melinda Gates think: contraceptive pills, gadgets, IUD’ and condoms are romantic or even God’s Will — you’re nuts!
Immodesty led to impurity which led to contraceptives which led to abortion which led to IVF, Homosexuality, Bestiality, Porn, Pedophilia, Murder, Violence, Abuse in Marriages and Divorce and hatred and abuse for the unborn, children, teens, adults and old people. You may call that Progress. But, I call it stupidity! Plain. Simple. Period.
