Unbelievable! Obama said: “The Future Must Not Belong to Those Who Slander The Prophet of Islam.”
President Obama said this to the United Nations’ General Assemby.
I Pledge Allegiance to the Flag , of the United States of America.
And, to the “REPUBLIC” for which it stands: One Nation, Under GOD, Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice, for All.
How did the world find out that Pope Francis had:
(1) One lung?
(2) Bad knees?
(3) And can’t sing?
(4) Likes the bus
(5) Doesn’t like his throne
(6) Doesn’t like the Papal Quarters
(7) Doesn’t like obeying Canon Laws or Vatican Protocol.
(8) Doesn’t like a safer Pope Mobile or to be told what to do, by his security detail
Is he accusing himself, of not being a “good Christian” or implying, that an “opponent” his sermon was aimed , at was a “bad Christian?”
What elderly person complains that doesn’t need a need filled?
If we are going to examine their conscience or culpability for them, then why wait for God to Judge them? You’ve already done it.
I sense he has someone in mind, that he has failed to love, as the target for his homily.
I learn by example. When words don’t line up with what you do – I am less inclined to follow those words. I’ve worked with the sick since I was a child. I have “an ear” for their complaints.
I guess after those babies are kissed, and the cameras are off; when it’s all said and done, he is a phony. He doesn’t practice, what he preaches.
How else did we learn about his illnesses had he not told the world and complained. He must be calling himself names, or in reality, more likely an opponent.
Clever deceptions, I’d say. Clever. But evil, to accuse anyone but oneself of sins.
Folks in hospital or nursing home settings have folks turn a deaf ear all the time – to their plaintive cries, for help.
Since they aren’t the Pope, their cries for help are ignored by their younger caretakers. I’ve seen it more often, than not.
But, isn’t it true – that GOD said – the Priest or Levite would go out of their ways not to help a man who was robbed, beaten and left for dead on the side of the road – in the Good Samaritan Story?
It wasn’t a Religious Person who helped the ailing man. It was a Good Samaritan who went out of his way and went the “extra mile” to love and care for that unfortunate man.
Food for thought, Pope.
“I was hungry and, you gave me to eat.”
I was hungering and thirsting for righteousness, and I found none, today.
(Only in Christ).
Another Way of Looking at this is well …
FRANKLY – I AM TIRED OF POPES WHO TACITLY COMPLAIN ABOUT BEING A POPE – A PAPA.
That’s all men need to hear, of a Pope complaining, because his job is getting too hard.
How hard can it be?
A Pope is waited on hand and foot. You have everything handed to you. Even your chasuble is held just so – so you don’t trip over yourselves in your very lavish threads.
Meanwhile real people don’t buy new clothes for years. They put up with that bad boss, abusive spouse, or politician.
Seems with the Pope bow-outs and the tacit complaints of the New Pope; fathers of a family and young single men are being given the example that they too, can vacate the family, when the going gets too tough.
So many examples of getting old: which one to follow? Christ. Only Christ. Popes must be followed, but to what extent? Their examples? Which Pope? The current one, speaks good one minute and is sharp the next. He seems to like to tell people off. And, insult them. I saw two women from Africa received that way. But, they kept smiling despite the Pope’s brusk words to them.
They were more of a good example to me, than what the Pope said to them.
His autobiography states:
“When a pope or a teacher must say ‘I am in charge here,’ or ‘I am the superior here,’ it is because he has already lost authority and is seeking to attribute it to himself with words. Saying that one has the staff of command implies that one no longer has it. Having the staff of command does not mean giving orders and imposing, but serving.”
I am not from Detroit.
I am from another city, in Michigan.
I do not like vile things supposed about me. Who does?
I am convinced Charismatics are lying charlatans, who make a living off grinding up and spitting out their perceived opponents.
God bless them with repentances.
They will look on Him, whom they have pierced.
Suing for defamation – is not possible for a poor person. My good name doesn’t have a price on it.
I will pray for them.
I am not depressed. I am shocked.
I am not suicidal. I am disgusted.
I do not sin in the manner that my detractors suppose. That’s a lie.
I pray for them.
I always say, “If it weren’t for Catholics, there would be more Catholics.”
I wonder out loud on this blog posting, “How many people who call into their Catholic Radio Show, are treated like this.”
Their boasting on every show, should have been a tip off. I thought that deacon gave good homilies.
From now on; I refuse to watch his ordination or homilies any more.
His words to me were most vile words anyone has ever spoken to me personally. Decent people don’t talk like that, in vile innuendo’s.
That show today taught me, that Catholic Radio personalities are paid hirelings. That is the extent of that.
I will ask a lawyer to tell them to not re-air their program, about me. It was such a shock to me.
Unrepentant, vile and defamatory Catholics will never be found listed in Christ’s “Book of Life” unless they repent of it. Lent will never be over for folks like that.

“At the end of his Angelus reflection this Sunday, Pope Benedict told pilgrims “Dear brothers and sisters…The Lord is calling me to “climb the mountain”, to devote myself even more to prayer and meditation. But this does not mean abandoning the Church, indeed, if God is asking me to do this, it is so I can continue to serve the Church with the same dedication and the same love with which I have done thus far, but in a way that is better suited to my age and my strength”. “We will always be close in prayer!”. Let us invoke the intercession of the Virgin Mary: may she always help us all to follow the Lord Jesus in prayer and works of charity”.
Vatican City, 13 February 2013 (VIS) – Benedict XVI dedicated the catechesis of today’s General Audience to the season of Lent, which begins today, Ash Wednesday. “Forty days,” he said, “that prepare us for the celebration of Easter. It is a time of particular commitment in our spiritual journey. … Forty days was also the period that Jesus spent in the desert before beginning his public life, when he was tempted by the devil.”
Reflecting on Jesus’ temptations in the desert, is “an invitation to each of us to respond to a fundamental question: What is truly important in our lives? … The core of the three temptations that Jesus faced is the proposal to instrumentalize God, to use Him for personal interests, for self-glory and success. In essence, it is putting oneself in God’s place, eliminating Him from our existence and making Him seem superfluous. … Giving God the first place is a path that each Christian has to undertake. ‘Conversion’ … means following Jesus, so that His Gospel becomes the practical guide of our lives. … It means recognizing that we are creatures who depend on God, on His love …This requires us to make our decisions in light of the Word of God. Today it is no longer possible to be a Christian as a simple consequence of living in a society that has Christian roots. Even those who come from a Christian family … must renew daily their decision to be Christian, to give God the first place in the face of the temptations continuously suggested by a secularized culture, in the face of the criticism of many of their contemporaries.”
“The tests that Christians are subjected to by society today are numerous and affect our personal and social life. It is not easy to be faithful to Christian marriage, to practice mercy in our everyday lives, or to leave space for prayer and inner silence. It is not easy to publicly oppose the decisions that many consider to be obvious, such as abortion in the case of an unwanted pregnancy, euthanasia in the case of serious illness, or the selection of embryos to avoid hereditary diseases. The temptation to set one’s faith aside is always present and conversion becomes a response to God that must be confirmed at various times throughout our lives.”
The Holy Father recalled that in history there have been “great conversions such as St. Paul’s on the road to Damascus or St. Augustine’s. But also in our age, when the sense of the sacred is eclipsed, God’s grace acts and works wonders in the lives of many people … as was the case for the Orthodox Russian scientist Pavel Florensky who, after a completely agnostic education … found himself exclaiming, ‘It’s impossible without God.’ He completely changed his life, even becoming a monk.” The Pope also cited the case of the intellectual Etty Hillesum (1914-1943), “a young Dutch woman of Jewish origin, who died in Auschwitz. Initially far from God, she discovered Him by looking deep within herself, writing: ‘There is a well deep within me. And God is that well.’ … In her scattered and restless life, she rediscovered God in the midst of the great tragedy of the twentieth century, the Shoah.”
“In our age, there are more than a few conversions that are seen as the return of those who, after a Christian education, perhaps a superficial one, have turned away from the faith for years, then later rediscover Christ and His Gospel. … In this time of Lent, in the Year of Faith, we renew our commitment to the path of conversion, overcoming the tendency to be wrapped up in ourselves and to make room for God, seeing our everyday reality with His eyes. Conversion means not being wrapped up in ourselves in the search for success, prestige, or social position, but rather of making each day, in the small things, truth, faith in God, and love, become what is most important,” the Pope concluded.

" 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
