Weapons for Our Time: Divine Mercy and The Blessed Mother

For such a time as this, we have all we need. God has actually increased our spiritual riches during the last century through the messages of Fatima and the Divine Mercy devotion.
Fr. Chris Alar, MIC, the director of the Association of Marian Helpers, and Tony Mullen, founder oMyConsecration.org, will explain how we can tap into the gifts that God showers upon us and how to be a part of the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary this Divine Mercy Sunday, at 7-8:45 PM Eastern. The live broadcast of “Divine Mercy and the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary” in Stockbridge, MA, can be watched by going here.

Do You Let Jesus be God?


“The Pharisees would not let Jesus be God,” the priest said during a homily this morning referring to the Gospel of John 8: 51-59
“Jesus said: "Abraham your father rejoiced to see my day; he saw it and was glad.”
“You are not yet fifty years old and you have seen Abraham?” the Pharisees responded. Jesus said to them, “Amen, amen, I say to you, before Abraham came to be, I AM.” So they picked up stones to throw at him; but Jesus hid and went out of the temple area.

How to Make Fasting Not a Diet

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.

16 Ways to Counteract "A Day Without a Woman"


         

   “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.

“Finding Jesus” Examines Historical Evidence


How ironic that Pontius Pilate who sentenced Jesus Christ to death, should give testimony to the existence of Jesus 2000 years later through a stone bearing Pilate’s name.   The decision of the prefect of Judea to crucify Jesus, clinched salvation history and was both the greatest good and the greatest evil—sentencing Jesus to death and saving mankind.  That decision rested on Pilate’s shoulders—a man Scripture shows was conflicted.  His questions to Jesus seemed sincere: “Are you the King of the Jews?” and “What is truth?”

Prayers Answered for a Deathbed Conversion

 I believe my prayers contributed to a deathbed conversion. There were surely other prayers at work, but mine were in the mix. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working, (James 5:16).

Skip the Glitter and Take Ashes As Mother Teresa Would

If you notice any glittery crosses on foreheads this Ash Wednesday, March 1, it’s a sham. Offering glitz in place of the cross is a counterfeit of what it means to follow Jesus.   
What’s with the glitter?  In the article "'Glitter Ash Wednesday' sparkles for LGBT Christians and others, it was reported that Parity, a New York-based advocacy group, wants Christians promoting LGBT equality to mark Ash Wednesday with "glitter ash" on their foreheads.

Dear Bill Nye: Stop Promoting Abortion with Fake Science!

Dear Bill, I watched your YouTube video Bill Nye: Can We Stop Telling Women What to Do With Their Bodies?  I see the bow tie is still there and noticed that your human cells, begun at conception, have advanced into old age. Retirement is not serving you well, however. Rather than bowing out as the energizer bunny of science-made-easy, you’ve decided to promote abortion.
