    White Double of the Second Class IN THE SIXTEENTH CENTURY, even amidst their many divergences, the so-called Reformers agreed in utterly rejecting all the honors paid by the Catholic Church to the Blessed Virgin Mary, on the grounds that such veneration of the Mother detracted from the supreme worship due to her Divine Son. Four centuries have more than sufficed to show the result of so doing: the Son has followed the Mother! The descendants of those who refused to Mary the title and rights of Theotokos,—Mother of God—refuse to Jesus the title of Son of God in the...

    A Missouri woman has been charged with stealing her terminally ill daughters pain medications. Medical staff found bed sores on the daughter and began suspecting the daughter wasnt being given the prescribed doses of fentanyl and oxycodone, so they tested her urine. Police say it showed no signs of the medications..... Bond is set at $100,000. No attorney is listed for Ballweg in online court records.

    SALT LAKE CITY American women might be waiting longer to have kids. But according to a new report, more women are having children than a decade ago. A new Pew Research Center report found that the share of American women who have given birth was higher in 2016 than it was 10 years ago. In fact, 86 percent of women from 40 to 44 years old said they were mothers, compared to 80 percent who said the same in 2016. The number is similar to what it was back in the 1990s.

    A leading psychotherapist in New York City in the last 25 years has warned that mothers who return to work too soon after having babies are damaging their childrens mental health. In a video for the New York Post, Erica Komisar revealed how shes seen an epidemic level of mental disorders in very young children, which she puts down to the devaluing of mothering in society. The author of Being There, Why Prioritizing Motherhood in the First Three Years Matters explained that babies experience a rush of cortisol and a great deal of stress when theyre away from their mothers....

    When Matthew Vasser founded Vasser Womens College he said it was because he realized that the Mothers of a nation mold its citizens, determine its institutions, and shape its destiny. What better place to invest in the future of America then the mothers who are shaping her future? We spend so much time looking to the federal government to solve our problems that we have completely overlooked where our real power lies with us. America wasnt founded by a government. It was founded by families uniting together in communities, who then formed a government, organized into states and united...
  • Woman Holds Her 6-Month-Old Baby as She Testifies Against Bill Banning Late-Term Abortions

    Missouri lawmakers listened Tuesday as a woman held her infant son and told them not to ban late-term abortions. She was one of several abortion activists and pro-life advocates who testified about a bill to ban abortions after 20 weeks during a Missouri House hearing, the Columbia Missourian reports. The legislation, state House Bill 1266, sponsored by state Rep. Donna Lichtenegger, R-Jackson, would prohibit abortions after 20 weeks when unborn babies are capable of feeling intense pain. If a nervous system is fully functional, it feels pain, so thats why we are wanting to not have an abortion after 20...

    CANADA, January 15, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) Procreation is becoming a global public health concern, rather than a personal decision, a feminist wrote for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) in an article trashing "Fixer Upper" stars Chip and Joanna Gaines for having a fifth child. It's not an exaggeration to say that the survival of our species depends on population control, Kristen Pyszczyk wrote. Even though population control carries with it associations with eugenics and other nasty historical events...we still need to talk about it. The Gaines couple of HGTV fame announced the existence of their fifth child by posting a...

    Aging is inevitable. However, if you want to slow down the process, you should consider having no more than two children, a new report suggests. To do so, they solicited more than 500 people to examine photographs of middle-aged women. The images were categorized into three sections: those with two to three kids, those with four to five and those with seven to nine. After examining the results, they found that women with fewer children were seen as younger and healthier than those with more children. In fact, the lowest scores were given to women with seven to nine children....

    WSJ ^ | Oct. 27, 2017 | James Taranto
    The premise of Ms. Komisars bookbacked by research in psychology, neuroscience and epigeneticsis that mothers are biologically necessary for babies, and not only for the obvious reasons of pregnancy and birth. Babies are much more neurologically fragile than weve ever understood, Ms. Komisar says. She cites the view of one neuroscientist, Nim Tottenham of Columbia University, that babies are born without a central nervous system and mothers are the central nervous system to babies, especially for the first nine months after birth. What does that mean? Every time a mother comforts a baby in distress, shes actually regulating that babys...

    Stop right there, read the text from one of my production crew. I had just sent over the show prep topics for my Saturday Evening broadcast and the headline of the first story up had caused him to literally stop in his tracks. In a sense of disbelief the producers of my show googled pregnant man gives birth. Even though the story was less than a day old, more than a million hits in Google news popped up: It wasnt restricted to British press and it certainly swept the world of journalism (however yellow it will come to be known...

    Its said that the most powerful word in any language is mother. I believe thats true, not just for the effect we have on our children when they are small, but because mothering never ends. As every mom of adult children can attest, love for our sons and daughters only increases with time. You come to love them more and more as unique individuals who you can learn from, too. My own awesome three adult children have expanded my world and thinking as Ive watched them pursue their own unique gifts gifts I just dont have. I so enjoy...
  • New Marriage Rite Offers Much-Needed Catechesis

    National Catholic Register ^ | November 13, 2016 | Daniel M. Garland Jr.
    COMMENTARY The most conspicuous is the change of the name from the “Rite of Marriage” to the “Order of Celebrating Matrimony.” This new name is more in accord with the Latin original, but it also adds something to the title that is not found in the simple word “marriage.” Not only does “matrimony” convey greater solemnity than “marriage,” but the Latin matrimonium also means “the state of being a mother.” This new title, therefore, provides us with a significant opportunity for a much-needed catechesis on the very nature of holy matrimony. In the face of a secular culture that values...

    The scene Wednesday morning in apartment number 808 of the Arroyo Villas complex was like something out of a horror movie. A man and a woman had allegedly drugged a little girl, then raped, killed and dismembered her. Most would expect the girls mother to fight with everything she had to save her daughter. But Michelle Martens, according to her own reported account to police, is not that kind of mother. In her statement to police, it appears that Martens wanted to watch as her boyfriend, Fabian Gonzales, 31, and his cousin Jessica Kelley, 31, raped her 10-year-old daughter Victoria...

    (CNSNews.com) - In a weekly address celebrating Mothers Day, President Barack Obama on Saturday called for paid paternity leave. He also said: lets give mothers the respect they deserve. Giving flowers is always a good idea, Obama said. But I hope that on this Mothers Day, well recommit ourselves to doing more than that: Through deeds that match our words, lets give mothers the respect they deserve, give all women the equality they deserve, and give all parents the support they need in their most important roles.

Zeitner, 30, was tried on charges including fraudulent schemes, theft, forgery and identity theft.

    Americans "have to be sensitive" to people who are working two jobs and barely making ends meet, Republican John Kasich said Thursday night at a CNN-hosted town hall. He used the example of a single, working mother with a couple of children: "Think about that mother -- gets up early in the morning; gets the kids off to school; goes to work; comes home; makes dinner. They're the heroes. They're really -- these single women with children are the real heroes in America, in my opinion." [...] "Well, the one thing we want to make sure is they have healthcare,...
