    Emerging Civil War ^ | 1/19/2016 | Richard G. Williams, Jr.
    North of the River Tweed, on the border with England, lies the hauntingly beautiful land of Scotland. A land inhabited by a hardy breed of Celts whose history is rich with romantic stories of bravery and heroic struggles for freedom—a land so full of legends and myths, it’s sometimes difficult to separate true history from the romanticized version. During the 13th and 14th centuries, the Scots fought two bloody wars with their neighbor to the South, England, in Scotland’s struggle for independence. In recent years there has been a renewed interest about Scottish history, thanks in large measure to Mel...

    January 10, 2017 Tuesday of the First Week in Ordinary Time Reading 1 Heb 2:5-12It was not to angels that God subjected the world to come,of which we are speaking.Instead, someone has testified somewhere: What is man that you are mindful of him,or the son of man that you care for him?You made him for a little while lower than the angels;you crowned him with glory and honor,subjecting all things under his feet. In "subjecting" all things to him,he left nothing not "subject to him."Yet at present we do not see "all things subject to him," but we do...

  • Prayers Needed for a Friend Who Just Lost Her Son

    01/07/2017 9:55:22 PM PST · by CrimsonTidegirl · 40 replies
    I hate to bother people with vanity posts but a friend of mine and her husband need all the prayers they can get. She just lost her 23 year old son today to Cystic Fibrosis. He had just recently been added to a lung and heart transplant list. He needed the heart transplant because his diseased lungs had damaged his heart. What makes this doubly painful is that she lost her other son to this horrendous disease a few years ago. He died at age 12. They have no more children. Please pray for my friend, her husband and family....

    January 6, 2017 Christmas Weekday Reading 1 1 Jn 5:5-13 Beloved:Who indeed is the victor over the worldbut the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? This is the one who came through water and Blood, Jesus Christ,not by water alone, but by water and Blood. The Spirit is the one who testifies,and the Spirit is truth. So there are three that testify,the Spirit, the water, and the Blood, and the three are of one accord. If we accept human testimony,the testimony of God is surely greater.
