    AKA Elena to Jim Robinson
    For many years, I was first to wish Jim Birthday wishes as I share the same birthday as well (and few were aware of it).

    I have had an abundance of hospital stays for a broken hip, a heart attack and a rebuilding of my heart. I am still not released from all my restrictions, but could not let our birthday pass without dropping by.

    Have a happy and holy Birthday this year, Jim, and thanks for allowing me to be a part of this family for so very long.

    I could not believe what I was reading -- we are to keep our noses out of their evil practices -- while they want Our Pope to respond to their tale of woe.

    What a presumptuous a**.

    Those of us of Faith, know that God would never have made a world that could not hold and, with education and innovation, take care of ALL persons born as well as those who have been murdered for selfish reasons.

    I believe that His intent was that we should increase and populate this world of HIS!
  • Time to Bring Back St. Michael’s Prayer

    I have used a short version of the beginning of the prayer to St Michael for a very long time (as a part of my tagline) ... I long for the day when parishes all over the world start reciting this powerful prayer for his Intercession.
    BEAUTIFUL presentation, ConorMacNessa!

    Costas political rant about guns during half-time was terribly offensive to my adult son and daughter and myself -- all of us realizing we were hearing the same old, same old liberal rant.

    If he had a knife or even made use of his massive strength, his girl friend was going to die -- the question is what possible damage set him off in so bizarre and tragic manner -- apparently never giving a thought that his child of three months was being orphaned through his actions.

    Brain damage -- I think so!

    "The principles that we fought for in this past war do not exist in McMinn County."

    This comment is so pertinent today, yet we are caught in the trap of what passes for leadership today, working steadily to take our right to defend our lives, our Faith, our very Freedoms away from us!

    Certainly we can pray for surcease of this abomination -- but we are stuck with the corruption and deception which governs us!

    May my tagline be our constant prayer -- after all, God Himself used St. Michael the Archangel to clear the evil from Heaven, surely we can use his intercession to come to our assistance.

    What an awe-inspiring story this has been!

    Today I feel I am able to send my sorrowful wishes to Rose's family -- I was so pained at her suffering and finally her entrance to Eternity, that I could not put words together.

    May her soul and the souls of all the faithful Departed, Rest In Peace.

    He has her in the very Palm of His Hand, now!

    I am so sick of the Romney KNOCKING that the GOP and individuals are driving through his soul! God bless the man with class and his running mate... who DID HAVE THE CHANCE to resurrect the USA!

    Don't bother responding negatively, as I said I am sick to death of hearing and reading the garbage of criticism!
  • Sheriff’s Deputy [USMC Veteran], Father Of 3, In Desperate Need Of Bone Marrow Transplant

    AKA Elena to BenLurkin
    My granddaughter had the adult form of acute monocytic leukemia, diagnosed when she was 9 ... by accident and she already had a blastic tumor in her shin bone and was in stage 4 when discovered. I explained the bone marrow program innumerable times here on FR and other news exchanges on line ... and the life or lives that could be saved through this small program back then. I also told of the wisdom of umbilical cords and their possible saving of lives that are contained in their being tested and stored for future use.

    Jennifer is now 24 and received her random bone marrow transplant from some wonderful man in PA, even while she lived here in Southern California, when she was close to or had just turned 12.

    As a Kaiser Patient we held several possible donor drives right here in the Antelope Valley of upper L.A. county,in the three years of shots and chemo, while we waited in prayerful mode for that generous person who might have matched.

    Her surgery was performed at the City of Hope and the months while it took hold were filled with fear and hope all at the same time.

    It is not a difficult decision when one realizes that the stakes are so high and the possibility of being to give the gift of life is filled with the Graces from Our Lord.

    Jennifer's DNA was changed by the process and she just last year had her ONLY child (the one the Dr's predicted would never be), Serenity Grace, a beautiful girl, and now is experiencing the joys of motherhood.

    Not only are my prayers for this young man and his family --- also my gratitude to him for his choice of vocation and my understanding of what he is experiencing. I recommend that every person who is healthy and well have their testing done for WHOMEVER might need the gift of life from them sometime. Contact either the City of Hope about collection and being entered in that Wheel of Fortune that is the Bone Marrow Donor program.
  • Faith First! A Meditation at the End of a Political Season

    AKA Elena to Salvation
    Our "message" was tepid, no more ... but I felt so humiliated at what our religion, in particular had added to the public election of that evil, immoral and amoral man, a friend of mine sent the following email, from me to his many contacts. It is after the fact, and my stomach is still rolling with disgust ... I feel the incidences of fraud are too numerous to count ... but I felt if the priests in the pulpit could not make this point ... I could!


    Here is the good news … if you did not vote for Obama in the election, for whatever reason, you probably have good standing within our Faith. However if you voted for ANYONE who supports the killing of the child in the womb or the “relief” of death before its time has naturally been reached, or think that human cloning is a good advance for the world and voted in that direction or donated money to that cause … you have latae excommunicated yourself (** you need no priest or Bishop to pronounce your excommunication, you have done so yourself) from the reception of the Eucharist and ALL other of our Holy Sacraments except for that of Penance, which is effective in forgiveness of the sin ONLY if you realize that you have committed grave sin and intend to separate yourself from such alliances or actions in the future.

    What this election has proven is that the “Faithful” are more faithful to worldly comfort and some social ideas which are included in the Groups of wrongdoing that are intrinsic evil and are considered to be the MORAL ABSOLUTES.

    There is no such thing as some miracle of justification in splitting yourselves into a political person and still a Catholic if you have supported in any way ... the baby killers, the impossibility of marriage between homosexuals, those who make themselves gods with the science of reproduction (either in vitro, or cloning).

    I especially note the Hispanic and Black Cultures and the selfish women who feel that they are not intended to be a vehicle for and harbor for life, for which God made them and who are too selfish to allow a child to be implanted in them, or a Culture which claims to be family oriented until they get into a voting booth or go to scream support at the rallies for a person or party which condones and, in fact, promotes such evil.

    This is not a matter of choice, it is fact. So if you are among the many of these groups who defy God as a part of your whole person, you may be damning yourselves to Hell and succeeding generations will NOT CALL YOU BLESSED or mistaken, but rather evil, as is right.

    Certainly, refrain from the reception of the Body and Blood of Christ … do not be so two faced as to walk on your knees in Adoration, because you have committed the worst of sins and need forgiveness not false piety. You, my friends, may have thrown the USA to the wolves so to speak.

    I know that God is Love, but he is All-Just, One and The Same.

    Blessings for Enlightenment!

    I don't believe that this is my "job" to make this dire and true consequence and explain it to those who voted for this Administration ... but it certainly was not heard at any Mass I have taken part in in any way, shape or form. I think this should be the concentration ... the self excommunication that accompanies the support of evil.
  • OK, Now Can We Get Back to Benghazi?

    AKA Elena to Jay777
    Although I have received email this AM exhorting that we, as recipient of such an evil and despicable man to "lead" us we know not where, along with prayers to pray for our Salvation ... I am so saddened to realize there are so many in our Country who lack morality in such a serious way.

    Every bit of email I have received from my Catholic roots has decried the possibility of Obummer's reelection.

    We have been successful in the past and I believe we should demand the impeachment of Obummer for his treacherous, deceptive lying and his nonchalance about the deaths of our men in Benghazi.

    He defied his own vows in regard to protecting us, he has lied and lied and lied to all ... and I include in my indictment the bizarre behavior of Governor Christie for turning the tide against us.

    Our need for the intercession prayer to the soldier-Arch-Angel St. Michael, should increase ten-fold.

    My granddaughter and friends have been having a running commentary (to keep it mildly spoken) on Facebook and Twitter about the candidates.

    Most of those who join in would be first time voters ... one of her close friends was OBAMANUTS, suddenly changed to Ron Paul (quite a difference between them) and my granddaughter kept correcting their misconceptions and also kept telling them they had to pay attention, that they ignored the real world.

    The last reports almost all have decided that they are not going to vote, except for her ... that exemplifies that young crowd, vaunted as being so enthused.

    These people are all in the 18 to 24 year range.

    This vile administration consists of so many immoral or amoral persons without compassion or good sense or real pride and feeling of any need to defend our Freedom fighters, that we might as well give up the ghost if they succeed in stealing this election.

    I see someone gave the link to Obummer's speech ... he did NOT get either the laughs or the applause, but if you watch it he did have a couple of good lines.

    Chris Matthews directly behind him thought he was hilarious, but I think it should have been an embarrassment to Obama and a clue to him that at least some of the Catholics, know he is an enemy and he received tepid and polite responses.

    The contrast and content was so different between the two "dignitaries", was tremendous.

    It gave all those NY Catholics something to chew on when Gov. Romney talked about life from conception to natural death. His timing was great, he had no fear of honesty, "brutal" though some may have considered the remarks to be, the audience was thoroughly entertained and were given a lot of true "punch lines" about Obummer.

    We thought it hilarious.

    Even the greatest of writers could not achieve the "right on" timing in making his remarks.

    The applause and laugh meter definitely was off the scale for his remarks and ominously unamused for most of the president's. I objected to Obama being invited, but it was an opportunity for contrast for everyone who saw it.

    I also loved Mr. Bozell's comments about being a Catholic and being "scandalized" at Chris Matthews being there.
