Watching Dean Cain in “Operation Cupcake” – Hallmark Channel Photo
It’s a really cute movie.
Below is a recored Global Rosary for Priests, too. Tune in now!
It is difficult to know how much longer this duplicity can continue, as the Catholic bishops are showing a renewed interest in confirming the commitment to a Catholic identity by the colleges and universities in their dioceses. On January 20, 2011 Auxiliary Bishop Thomas J. Curry of Los Angeles, chairman of the Committee on Catholic Education of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, announced the 10-year review of the application of Ex Corde Ecclesiae for the United States. Bishop Curry expressed the hope that “this review will help us appreciate the positive developments and remaining challenges in the collaborative efforts of bishops and presidents to ensure the implementation of Ex Corde Ecclesiae.”
Literally translated as “From the Heart of the Church,” Pope John Paul II’s papal document called for Catholic colleges to be accountable to local bishops. A key component of this accountability led to a controversial requirement within the papal document that all theologians obtain a mandatum or certificate from their local bishops, attesting that their teaching was in keeping with official Church teachings. This has posed a problem for most Catholic colleges and their bishops, as there are many theologians in leadership positions whose teaching is in direct opposition to authentic Church teachings.
My Two Cents Worth
This Papal Document naively “precludes” that the Bishops the Holy See picks out are Catholic Heterodox.
That is the only “hole” I see in this Papal Document “Ex Corde Ecclesiae” meaning “From the Heart of the Church,” an Encyclical Letter from Blessed Pope John Paul II.
And, perhaps, this is not only an unseen”hole” in this document, but an unseen wound, in the Sacred Heart of Christ, and Our Blessed Mother’s Immaculate and Sorrowful Heart.
I will offer up my wounds, from this, to GOD:
1. For Love of Jesus
2. For the Conversion of Sinners
3. And in Reparation for the Sins Committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary, whose feast day we celebrate today.
“Ex Corde Ecclesiae” meaning “From the Heart of the Church,” an Encyclical Letter from Blessed Pope John Paul II, will only work, if the Bishops, Priests, Nuns and like minded Laity are called To Order – which means they need a very deep Catholic Conversion.
If they aren’t convinced of the TRUTHS taught in Our Church’s Scripture and Tradition; then “How are they going, to make sure, Catholic Colleges are heterodox?”
Huge Banners and The Chior fill the Central Nave, of St Thomas the Apostle Parish;
where the Altar and Tabernacle used to be; and where Christ must still be.
Question: Does St Thomas the Apostle Parish still believe that HOLY MASS is Prayer Par Excellence, as the Vatican II Documents say, in Lumen Gentium?
Photos are of St Thomas the Apostle Parish in Grand Rapids, MI the canonical parish, affiliated with Aquinas College.
I feel sorry for “Catholic-Sheeple” who just “Go Along, to Get Along.”
They have let their King, Lord and Savior; their God, and made HIM take a lower place than the Choir and the Word Banners. That is so backwards, and so Liturgically Incorrect. Jesus is supposed to be front and center in Our Catholic Churches, and in Our Hearts and Minds, and other lessor ministries are to be sidelined, in their proper place. GOD does not want to be sidelined in our churches or our hearts!
The Mystical Body of Christ has a head that cannot be decapitated: namely Christ and the Pope. And, the priest. Even if the Pope or Priest is scattering the sheep, they are the head. Instead of changing, seems they expect Christ and the Pope to change. That is so weird. And, it is wrong-headed, pardon the pun. This Mystical Body of Christ cannot say to the Head, “We don’t need you.” Because, without a head, the body will not live, just like without the heart of a mother or father loving a family, will not live fully the life that Christ intended for it, as a family.
Think about it: You end in decapitating the Catholic Church if you sideline Jesus, His Presence in the Mass and Tabernacle. When you dissent from Church’s Teachings, you decapitate the Vicar of Christ on Earth – the Pope.
The Priest is the Head of the Church – even if he is evil. But, we do not have to follow his blind lead, if we intuit it. That’s when we must finally speak up and say “enough!”
The Mystical Body of Christ cannot live without a head and a heart, but it can live without an arm and a leg, a gallbladder etc, lessor organs or body parts. My regards to St Paul, for this addendum to his Epistles. I hope he understands new surgeries that make one able to live without these parts. That’s about all I can think to say about this topic.
Leaving you with this thought about the unseen head of Our Catholic Church: Christ said, “Apart from Me, you can do nothing!”
Much to take to Mass tonight, when I pray for others, I will pray for this parish and college, in particular, and others that are just like it, or worse.
If Mass is “Prayer Par Excellence” and called the Source and Summit of our entire day, why don’t these Priests and Bishops act like it; by implementing Architectural changes, that reflect these TRUTHS?
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear them from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
2 Chronicles 7:14
A Solemn Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Most Holy Virgin Mary, tender Mother of men, to fulfill the desires of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the request of the Vicar of Your Son on earth, we consecrate ourselves and our families to your Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, O Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, and we recommend to You, all the people of our country and all the world.
Please accept our consecration, dearest Mother, and use us as You wish to accomplish Your designs in the world.
O Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, and Queen of the World, rule over us, together with the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, Our King. Save us from the spreading flood of modern paganism; kindle in our hearts and homes the love of purity, the practice of a virtuous life, an ardent zeal for souls, and a desire to pray the Rosary more faithfully.
We come with confidence to You, O Throne of Grace and Mother of Fair Love. Inflame us with the same Divine Fire which has inflamed Your own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. Make our hearts and homes Your shrine, and through us, make the Heart of Jesus, together with your rule, triumph in every heart and home.
–Venerable Pope Pius XII

EXCLUSIVE: Fort Hood massacre survivors tell of fearing shooter would ‘finish the job’ Read more: http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/06/15/survivors-fort-hood-massacre-tell-tales-fearing-shooter-would-finish-job/ixzz1xvNyA0Nt
Stratton, who needed his family’s permission to enlist at the age of 17, thought he might be safe until he heard a soldier cry out that the shooter was following the wounded.
“He’s coming around the corner with the gun, he’s shooting and killing people,” Stratton said. “I just sat there – felt helpless – felt hopeless waiting for this person to come in and finish the job.”
Staff Sgt. Shawn Manning was shot six times, with one bullet narrowly missing his heart. Manning said he had sworn to uphold the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic. Manning paused as he described the shooter.
“Domestic enemy, I mean, that’s what this was,” Manning said. “He might have wore the uniform, but he wasn’t a soldier. He didn’t act like a soldier. He tried to kill soldiers. I mean, he was an enemy – plain and simple.”
“When it came to Hasan,” Manning said, “there was a double standard. Hasan wrote emails to radical American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki – seeking advice on reconciling his Muslim faith with serving in the Army. This fact was known to the FBI.”
“You could lose your security clearance in the Army for having bad credit and be kicked out of the Army. But you can’t lose your security clearance for talking to a member of Al Qaeda, through e-mail. I mean, it doesn’t make any sense,” Manning said.
Despite calls from some members of Congress, none of the injured or murdered soldiers from the 2009 shooting has been awarded the Purple Heart.

To Give Hope and Encouragement through the Word of God
" The “door of faith” (Acts 14:27) is always open for us, ushering us into the life of communion with God and offering entry into his Church. It is possible to cross that threshold when the word of God is proclaimed and the heart allows itself to be shaped by transforming grace. To enter through that door is to set out on a journey that lasts a lifetime." Benedict XVI
