    @jesspinosa Happy belated Birthday, my friend! xo :happybirthday:
    I know you had a very blessed day! :happynun:

  • Bringing joy to child refugees – hankies ready?

  • @crisriego @crisriego – Happy Birthday, Cris. How does it feel to be 25? May the day be a beautiful one, with lots of love surrounding you. God bless you (even if you did not sneeze!).

  • Meet a DACA priest – what will happen to him?

  • Did Mary appear in Fatima to convert the Muslims?

    The connections described between Mary, Mohammed, the Koran and the Muslims are so intriguing and believable.

    • I came to this same conclusion myself a couple years back. First, when I realized Fatima was a Arab name. Second, when I learned Muslims believe in both Jesus and Mary. I also found it interesting that Guadalupe is an Arab name.

  • Your Sanctuary

    Susan’s schedule makes me dizzy, or envious, of all the energy she has. Mother of three — ages eight to thirteen — she is taxi driver, calendar coordinator, cook, consoler, house supervisor, and bottle washer. Susan’s husband commutes to work, leaving the house early and returning late, carried by the tide of freeway traffic. Susan also volunteers—at the local school and at her church, and she is involved in a local garden club.
    I ask her about sanctuary. She gives me a wistful look and says, “I wish.” And then she adds, “I’ll have time someday. That’s the good news. I just need to get through these years.” I believe her, and I know what it means to wait for better times before making plans for sanctuary. I ask her what she does when she has a small window of “Susan time.” Her answer is immediate: “A cappuccino in the breakfast nook off our kitchen that looks out at the bird feeders. I start making lists. But some days I just stare off or doodle. I love to doodle and sketch the birds I see. It’s nothing really.”
    We don’t give ourselves the permission to claim or own or embrace or name our sanctuaries, no matter how small or frivolous they may seem. Sanctuary is where you go to cherish your life. It’s where you practice being present. And it may not be th…[Read more]

    Pro-life internship for young people available in NYC, Abortion Capital of the World (not a distinction to be proud of)

    If you know of any young people who would be interested in learning about pro-life, sidewalk counseling, pro-life issues, etc., here is a good place to start. We’ve met many of these interns from other states and foreign countries, and they are passionate, personable and intelligent people who are willing to work hard, all in the name of protecting the unborn.

  • @frcraig – Fr. Craig, this one’s for you. Haven’t heard from you for a long time.

  • Dear New York friends,
    Please join my Public Square Rosary Rally on Saturday, October 14, at 12 noon, to celebrate the centennial of Our Lady of Fatima’s apparition. Our location is excellent – at the intersection of Broadway, Columbus Ave. and West 64th St. People coming from or going to Lincoln Center can see us, as well as passengers of buses going in both directions in the two major avenues. We’ve had people stopping to ask what we are about, give us words of encouragement or join us in praying for a few minutes. We get photographed as well. This year, I will have my friend’s 7-year-old daughter distribute rosaries to the passersby – who can resist an angelic girl like her? We’re excited to give this gift to Our Lady of Fatima who has been so good to us and whose help we badly need during this tumultuous time in our world. Shall I expect to see you there? Please say YES, not to many but to Our Lady.

    Fr. David Bergerone – Truly a man of God. He calls himself Bodyguard of Christ – 👌

  • As we celebrate the centennial of the apparition of our Lady of Fatima, America Needs Fatima is holding its biggest annual Public Square Rosary Rally on Saturday, October 14, at 12 noon (regardless of time zone), with an expected 20,000 (or more) rosary rallies to be held on that day. We are recruiting more rally captains to organize rallies in their own communities. All it involves is a three-step process: 1) Invite family and friends to join you. 2) Choose a public space where you are visible to the public (a park, a parking lot, a busy intersection), 3) Pray on that date and time. ANF will provide you with a beautiful 9′ x 3′ anniversary banner (see photo) and a manual with everything you need (prayers, attendance sheet, etc.) If you feel invited by Our Lady of Fatima to be a rally captain, call 866-584-6012, or send me a message via Awestruck if you have any questions. For each rally captain who signs up, a red rose in his/her name will be sent to Fatima to form a large wreath to be laid at the site of the apparition on October 13 – a special gift and a blessing for you.

  • There is no party like a pro-life party

    Last Saturday, a couple from my pro-life group invited a group of other pro-lifers for their annual get-together in the backyard of their home. The weather was just perfect – sunny, low humidity, slight breeze. Present were two Franciscan friars, three Sisters of Life, four Pro Bikers for Life, and a young man named Liam, who came with his parents. I met Liam about three years ago at a pro-life vigil. He was a seminarian then and he asked me to pray for him, and I did. The first thing I asked was what his status was on his way to the priesthood. I thought he would say a transitional deacon, but to my pleasant surprise, he said he was ordained last June! He gave me his first blessing and had a nice conversation with his parents. They are such a nice couple, no surprise that they have produced a priest.

    My contribution to the party was a mango souffle cake on which I asked the guy at the store to write “Pro Life Forever.” In the midst of many other dessert treats, it held its own, but no one touched the part of the cake with those words!

    When Pro Bikers and Sisters of Life are in the same place, it was inevitable that a spin around the neighborhood would happen, and it did. The Sisters, wearing helmets, had fun, and we…[Read more]

    Jihadists attempted to bomb La Sagrada Familia. Begone, Satan!

    • In forty years they’ll turn it into a mosque–unless it’s cruciform shape makes it unsuitable for that. THEN the Islamic government of all Europe will order it destroyed. Muslims are the only people in Europe having enough children to grow their population. “Native” Europeans will be a small minority in a mere 2 generations.

    Take down Margaret Sanger’s statue? Great idea!

    Have you heard of the word \”polyamory\”? Read and be shocked.

    ​https://mobile.twitter.com/briansbrown/status/889879250634985474?t=1&cn=ZmxleGlibGVfcmVjc18y&refsrc=email&iid=f00b2ee940fd44a39659b59a2abd5afe&uid=791749383519895552&nid=244+276893697

    I had never heard of the word \”polyamory\” till now. I\’m surprised to know from the article that it has been around. What other ways to offend our Lord can mankind think of doing? It was hard for me to read the whole article. Let us pray.

    Could Cardinal Sarah bring an end to the liturgy war?

    http://www.ncregister.com/blog/kschiffer/could-cardinal-sarah-bring-an-end-to-the-liturgy-wars

    I like his ideas. I wish he had said something about changing/eliminating the greetings of peace – for many people, it has become a contest on who could give/receive a greeting the most, and it has become a distraction to the solemnity of the Mass. Incorporating periods of silence, especially right after communion, is an excellent idea. Your thoughts?

    • Eliminate the peace greeting all together. It doesn’t to me serve any purpose other than to lengthen the mass.
      Especially, since I have attended a few (between 5-10 LTM Masses). It takes away from the mass. It isn’t a social event, folks. He mass is to be solemn and it needs to go back to its roots and the LTM MASS. Period
