  • Lawsuit: Famed Jesuit Priest With Connections to Mother Teresa Abused Boy 'More than 1,000 Times'

    KTLA ^ | Monday, December 30, 2019 | The Associated Press
    One day in May of 1970, an 11-year-old boy and his disabled sister were sitting on the curb outside a Chicago tavern, waiting for their mother to come out. When a priest with crinkly eyes and a ready smile happened by and offered the family a ride home, they could not have been happier. The boy, Robert J. Goldberg, now 61, would pay dearly for the favor, enduring what he describes as years of psychological control and sexual abuse he suffered while working as a child valet for the late Rev. Donald J. McGuire. He remained in the Jesuit's thrall...

This bond is charity, which is found in this land of exile as well as in our heavenly country; which rejoices the triumphant Saints and animates those still militant; which, descending from heaven to earth, and from Angels to men, causes earth to become a heaven, and men to become Angels.

    White Double WONDER-WORKER AS IS THE SAINT OF TODAY, fulfilling her dying prophecy, “After my death I will let fall a shower of roses,” she is her own greatest miracle. Her world-wide popularity, to which is united in most cases a devotion which has reorientated many a life, and in all has been a stimulus and an encouragement, is recognized to be phenomenal. It has been said with respect to doctrinal definitions that the faithful have a passive “infallibility,” whereby their need answers exactly to the definition; the same would seem to be true in the case of devotions...

  • Remembering When Mother Teresa Left Hillary Clinton in Stunned Silence on Abortion

    Life News ^ | Mar 16, 2016 | Dave Andrusko
    President Obama, as has his predecessors, delivered a prepared speech. But, to be honest, I found the remarks of his fellow pro-abortionist, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the same dais, much more intriguing. Judging by what Clinton said and previously, she appears to have been genuinely moved by her meeting with Mother Teresa. In 1994 Mother Teresa delivered a no-hold-barred pro-life speech at the National Prayer Breakfast in front of Clinton, her equally pro-abortion husband, then-President Bill Clinton, and Al and Tipper Gore. Hillary Clinton talked about being summoned afterwards by Mother Teresa and working with her to establish...

    An atheist group at Dartmouth College is planning an event aimed at skewering the reputation of the late Mother Teresa. The Atheists Humanists Agnostics (AHA) club sent out a campus-wide e-mail announcing the program on Tuesday and promising a “full-out romp against why one of the most beloved people of the century, Mother Teresa, is as Hitchens put it… ‘a lying, thieving Albanian dwarf.’”

    St. Teresa of Avila’s Interior Castle October 14th, 2010 by Patrice Fagnant-MacArthur October 15th is the feast day of St. Teresa of Avila. A Carmelite nun living in the 1500s, one of her most famous works is “Interior Castle” (known as “The Mansions” in her native Spain) which she wrote at the request of her confessor. A mystic who communed intimately with God, she had experienced a vision of “a most beautiful crystal globe, made in the shape of a castle, and containing seven mansions, in the seventh and innermost of which was the King of Glory, in the greatest...

    On Sept. 23, 2010, in Jarrat, Virginia, 41 yr. old Teresa Lewis was executed by lethal injection in connection with the murder of her husband, Julian Lewis and her stepson Charles "C.J." Lewis in October 2002. Thousands of individuals petitioned VA Governor Robert F. McDonnell to change her sentence to "life in prison" to no avail. ( News reports around the nation mentioned the story citing details about female executions (the last one in the U.S. was here in Texas in 2005; of the current 10 TX females on death row, 4 are from the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex - details)....

"Tell [the Jews] to get the hell out of Palestine..." --Helen ThomasAlthough initially you might think a comparison between Mother Teresa and Helen (no relation to Fighting Irish) Thomas to be crazy, the two female trailblazers had (at least initially) a lot in common. Both come from large religious families of middle Eastern decent, both decried injustice and poverty and forged fabulous careers...

    Offer It Up ^ | 4-12-10 | Fr. James Kubicki, S.J.
    Jesuit Father John Hardon lived from 1914 to 2000. I only met him once, briefly, and heard him give a talk at a fund-raiser for a private Catholic academy in Milwaukee. Archbishop Raymond Burke has opened up his cause for canonization and the more I learn about him the more I find myself enlisting his intercessory support for the work of the Apostleship of Prayer. Fr. Hardon was a true apostle of the Sacred Heart. He was on fire with the same love that burns in the Heart of Jesus. He couldn't keep the fire to himself and did everything...

    The Observer finds that Teresa Heinz Kerry appears to believe that the results in Ohio in 2004 are illegitimate: This convention, Ms. Heinz Kerry said, is “full of meaning and full of opportunity, and if you, as I, believe, and I know a lot of you do, we did not lose the last election, nor did Al Gore lose his last election. We won it.” While many Democrats remain angry about conflicts over voter registration and the provision of voting machines, in particular, fewer believe that those provided the margin of victory, or that Kerry was robbed of victory the...

    On February 3,1994, Mother Teresa came to Washington and gave a speech that left the entire audience dazzled and part of it dismayed, including a United States senator who turned to his wife after Mother Teresa concluded and said, “Is my jaw up yet?” It was the annual National Prayer Breakfast at the Hilton Hotel and three thousand people were there, including most of official Washington. The breakfast is always an interesting and unusual gathering in the capital in that it is informed by an unspoken goodwill and because famous people, usually political figures, are invited to talk about what...

This great house receives many great visitors, but none more special or more revered than our beloved guest today. A month ago, we awarded the Medal of Freedom to 13 heroes who have done their country proud. Only one of the recipients could not attend because she had work to do -- not special work, not unusual work for her, but everyday work which is both special and urgent in its own right. Mother Teresa was busy, as usual, saving the world. And I...

    According to a recent article in Time Magazine, the person we knew as Mother Teresa endured, throughout her career of ministry to the dying, the travail we would ordinarily associate with damnation, which is the sense of "being without God." I read the article with what I found to be a surprising sense of confirmation, as when we return to a place long familiar and find there exactly what we remember. Is anything so disturbing as such unexpected familiarity? I have since then been preoccupied with the clues that it immediately brought to mind, the two most important being...

    She is no longer the outspoken, freewheeling quote-machine of the early 2004 presidential campaign, the woman beside Democratic nominee Sen. John F. Kerry who intrigued voters and frazzled political handlers with her tendency to say exactly what she thought on everything from health care policy to botox, from pre-nups to Rick Santorum. These days, Teresa Heinz Kerry seems more guarded around the news media. Since her husband's defeat, she's lowered her profile, tending to her various philanthropies and, perhaps, nursing some wounds -- not just from the election but from some snarky portrayals of her in the press. About her...
