    Catholic Thing ^ | 11.14.10 | Pope Benedict XVi
    Pope Benedict XVI Sunday, June 14, 2020 Dear Brothers and Sisters,This morning too I would like to introduce a female figure to you. She is little known but the Church is deeply indebted to her, not only because of the holiness of her life but also because, with her great fervor, she contributed to the institution of one of the most important solemn Liturgies of the year: Corpus Christi. Juliana was born near Liège, Belgium between 1191 and 1192. It is important to emphasize this place because at that time the Diocese of Liège was, so to speak, a true...
  • Three Teachings on Corpus Christi

    >The feast of Corpus Christi affords us an opportunity to renew our understanding of the Holy Eucharist and Sacred Liturgy. It also helps us clarify certain errors that have crept into our thinking. Let’s look at the readings today under three headings: The Righteousness of our Worship, the Reality of our Worship, and Readiness of our Worship. The Righteousness of our Worship – In the first reading today Moses has the faithful swear an oath: Taking the Book of the Covenant, he read it aloud to the people, who answered, “All that the LORD has said, we will heed and...
  • Children Shown Propaganda Song Urging Them to Put Their ‘Faith in Fauci’

    Parents at a grade school in Corpus Christi, Texas are demanding answers after their children were shown a vulgar propaganda video that encouraged the kids to stop complaining about wearing face masks and to put their faith in Dr. Anthony Fauci. It’s a class example of the sort of classroom indoctrination that I wrote about in “Culture Jihad: How to Stop the Left From Killing a Nation.” Radicalized educators have turned our public schools into propaganda camps.

    When Modesti Cooper returned home to Houston in July 2019 after more than a decade overseas with the United States military, she moved into her dream house on the corner of Nance and Grove streets in Houston’s Fifth Ward. She’d bought a parcel of land and designed the home from scratch in her downtime while touring from Kuwait to Afghanistan to Iraq. It was a relief to finally move in. “It’s a calm, cool, nice area,” Cooper says. “Besides the traffic, there’s no violence, no noise. It’s so quiet, it’s unbelievable. I had rockets and mortars and missiles blown over...

    The Reason For My Faith ^ | 3/10/21 | Chuck Ness
    Many times in my life I have been standing alone. Like this picture. I remember standing alone at the edge of the Grand Canyon when I was hitchhiking through Arizona, wondering which way I would travel. I remember standing alone, looking down at the grave of a dear sweet girl who had my heart when I was but 16. I also remember wondering if she would still be alive had I not gotten off the bus a block early. Or would she now be looking down at my grave all these years later. I remember standing alone inside the tent...

    HOUSTON — Harris County Commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday night to change the engineer of record on the Sam Houston Tollway Ship Channel Bridge after a review found one portion that had not yet been built contained a potential design flaw. The Harris County Toll Road Authority hired an independent consultant, COWI North America, Inc., to review the design of the bridge. HCTRA deputy director John Tyler told KHOU 11 in January that COWI found the possible weakness in December 2019. The design comes from FIGG Bridge Engineers, Inc., the same company behind a Florida pedestrian bridge that collapsed in 2018,...

    An accused terrorist who allegedly opened fire on United States Navy personnel in Corpus Christi, Texas, was able to secure American citizenship through a little-known immigration loophole, a former intelligence agent states. Adam Alsahli, a 20-year-old naturalized American citizen, has been identified by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) as the alleged terrorist who attempted to speed through a gate at the Naval Air Station Corpus Christi (NASCC) on May 21. The FBI says Alsahli shot at a female sailor who was then able to prevent him from getting onto the NASCC base by raising a vehicle barrier. At that...

    The suspect who was shot dead as he carried out Thursday's 'terrorism-related' attack on a Texas naval air base has been identified by the FBI as a 20-year-old Syrian-born college student. According to investigators, Adam Salim Alsahli opened fire at Naval Air Station Corpus Christi in an attack that wounded one sailor, a member of the base security force, but no one other than the assailant was killed. A group that monitors online activity of jihadists has since claimed that Alsahli voiced support for hardline Islamic clerics on social media prior to the thwarted attack.

The gunman was first reported near the base around 6.15am when he tried to speed through a gate at the Naval Air Station Corpus Christi. Authorities said vehicle barriers stopped the car, but the man proceeded to open fire.
  • Corpus Christi authorities meet to discuss communication following arrest in alleged terror plot

    CORPUS CHRISTI — A day after learning of the arrest of a former Corpus Christi resident involved in an alleged international terror plot to assassinate an ambassador, local and federal authorities met to strengthen communications. When federal agents announced Tuesday they had arrested Mansour Arbabsiar, 56, it was the first local authorities had heard about the case, said Sheriff Jim Kaelin. Arbabsiar had previous arrests in Nueces County during nearly 20 years living in the area. That meant arrest records and personal details were on file in the county's warehouse. But no one from any federal agency ever asked for...
  • Islamic Illegal Alien Admits to Killing Daughter And Grandson In Possible Honor Killing

    An Islamic illegal alien living in Corpus Christi, Texas, admitted to police last week that he murdered his daughter and grandson in cold blood. The 72-year-old man, Mohammad Sahi, is a Pakistani national. Pakistan is a Muslim-majority country and a hotbed for “honor killings.” Such killings are purely ideologically-driven in Islam, and “honor violence” usually has to do with bringing shame upon one’s family. “If a woman or girl is accused or suspected of engaging in behavior that could taint her family’s status, she may face brutal retaliation from her relatives that often results in violent death,” according to...

On Monday, private equity firm Carlyle Group became the latest to place a bet, proposing with the Port of Corpus Christi what it said would be the first onshore U.S. export facility able to load the world’s largest crude tankers.

For approximately 800 years Catholics set aside the first Thursday after Trinity Sunday to acknowledge the awesome reality that Jesus meant what he said, “This is my Body” and “He who eats me will live because of me.” Along with the warning that, “Whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be answerable for the body and blood of the Lord.” The Feast of Corpus Christi and the procession with the Blessed...

    Pope Francis is departing from a 40-year tradition restored by St. John Paul II and moving the celebration of Corpus Christi from the heart of Rome to the neighboring seaside town of Ostia. The move marks the latest in several changes Pope Francis has made to the celebration of Corpus Christi since his pontificate began. Given the deep significance and beauty of the annual Eucharastic procession through the heart of Rome, the move is leading some to ask: Franciscus, quo vadis? Restoring a tradition Until this year, the annual candlelit Eucharistic procession immediately followed the celebration of Holy Mass at Rome’s Basilica of St. John...

    Talks have been bubbling in recent months about making major route changes to Interstate 14, but the primary organization behind the push says it’s facing resistance from a West Texas representative and the state’s senior senator. Regional transportation lobby group Midland-Odessa Transportation Alliance (MOTRAN) has pushed to change the congressionally approved western route of I-14, also known as the Forts to Ports Highway and the Gulf Coast Strategic Highway System. Forts to Ports aims to connect Fort Bliss in El Paso with Fort Hood in Central Texas and Fort Polk in Louisiana. The plan also connects to military deployment ports...
