They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 26 Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating...

The president later compared that story to Chicago Muslim father and his children praying one day after the San Bernardino shooting: A week ago, I spoke at a ceremony held at the Israeli Embassy for the first time, honoring the courage of people who saved Jews during the Holocaust.

    Today is February 2nd, which means (besides the annual showing of Groundhog Day) that it’s the Feast of the Presentation, better known as Candlemas. Candlemas is actually the holiday behind Groundhog Day, in that there was an old folk tradition that a sunny Candlemas meant a long winter, but that’s another story. More to the point, Candlemas is a turning point in the year. If you pray the four seasonal Marian antiphons, today marks the first day of a new season. If you don’t pray them, or don’t know what they are, read on.

The city of Flint is in the middle of a water disaster, causing lead poisoning and other health problems. Presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) criticized "every level of government" for the crisis, said officials should be held accountable for exposing residents to "poisoned water," and called the impact on Flint residents "heartbreaking."

An attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union urged a three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to uphold the lower court's ruling that the Rowan County Commissioner's practice of opening their meetings with prayers that almost always referred to...

    "War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength." In George Orwell's dystopic novel 1984, the totalitarian Big Brother regime issues perverse edicts reflecting the opposite of what is said. Likewise, in the American Civil Liberties Union's dystopic world, "silence is freedom of speech." The latest example unfolded recently in the Pittsburgh suburb of Monroeville, Pennsylvania, where the ACLU bullied the city council, which had been considering allowing faith leaders to give rotating prayers before the meetings. The Council had long been opening with recitations of the Lord's Prayer, and after a complaint from a single, disappointed petitioner morphed into...

The New York billionaire invited Vander Plaats and his family to visit New York several times, refusing to allow them to pay to stay at one of his hotels and lavishing kindness.

    Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem Character Studies From The Bible Paul (Paul's First Letter to The Corinthians) 3 Brothers and sisters, I could not address you as people who live by the Spirit but as people who are still worldly-mere infants in Christ. 2 I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready. 3 You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere humans? 4 For when one says, "I follow Paul,"...

    Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.

He called you to this when we shared our good news with you. Now you can take part in the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ, our Liberating King. So, brothers and sisters, all you need to do now is stand firm and...

    This is an unbelievable miscarriage of justice. It's of pure Satanic caliber that Planned Parenthood could do what they're shown doing on video and yet have the audacity to claim themselves to be the victims. While liberals want to let Hillary Clinton off on any technicalities they can find, and also want to let Planned Parenthood off on them, yet they dare to indict on technicalities the people who would expose PP's evil. Let's pray especially for the vulnerable unborn. Every life is created by God and belongs to Him. Let's also pray for the utter failure of the prosecution...

    Maquoketa, Iowa (CNN)The tail end of Ted Cruz's stump speech Monday was half preacher's pulpit, half standup comedy hour. Ending his stump speech here at the Jackson County Fairgrounds, Cruz, as always, encouraged Iowans to pray and cited his dose of Scripture -- 2 Corinthians 7:14. "We are standing on the promises of Second Corinthians, 7:14," he said in the eastern Iowa town, before an untimely interruption. "Two Corinthians!" a man shouted from the third row...

    Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem Character Studies From The Bible Paul (Paul's First Letter to The Corinthians) 2 And so it was with me, brothers and sisters. When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God.[a] 2 For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 3 I came to you in weakness with great fear and trembling. 4 My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of...

  • Catholic students celebrate Mass on snow altar while stranded on PA Turnpike

    Stranded on buses overnight by a monster snowstorm that has shut down parts of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, hundreds of Catholic high school students from Nebraska and elsewhere nevertheless seemed to have things relatively in hand this afternoon. Returning from Washington D.C., where they took part Friday in the annual March for Life, they at least had food and water on board, said Tim McNeil, chancellor of the Archdiocese of Omaha. A nearby maintenance building gave them access to bathrooms. And while there was nothing resembling a chapel anywhere near the cars, buses and trucks stopped westbound between the Bedford and...

    Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem Character Studies From The Bible Paul (Paul's First Letter to The Corinthians) 18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise;the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate." 20 Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For since in...
