What did Jesus do prepare for his public ministry? He went into the wilderness to fast for forty days. It was not a diet. That might sound crass but it’s tempting to look at spiritual fasting as a convenient opportunity to also go on a diet.

“A Day Without A Woman” is planned for Wednesday, March 8. The organizers behind the January march in DC have now hijacked International Women’s Day calling for women to walk out on jobs and family and not to shop or basically do anything that contributes to society that day.
Women are ironically being told to do nothing for anyone on a day which traditionally honors and respects women for their achievements.

Put on your spiritual armor and be not afraid as we seek to regain the Constitutional right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness that begins with the right to life in the womb.

“This universe is at war,” C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity.
During an interview with Bishop Thomas Paprocki of the diocese of Springfield, Illinois for an upcoming article with the National Catholic Register about exorcism in the US, he referred to Christian author C.S.
