On a hazy morning on Saturday, July 28, 1945, a B25 bomber lost in the fog, crashed into the Empire State Building at the 79th floor, killing 14 people. It went right into the National Catholic Welfare Conference office which years later would become the United States Catholic  Conference of Bishops, (USCCB). 
During the rescue mission, the lines of one of the elevator cables snapped causing a young women elevator operator to fall down 75 flights. She survived.

St. Michael Prayer that Saved a Marine’s Life



We call on St. Michael the Archangel, “Prince of the Heavenly Host” to protect us from evil. His name is Hebrew for "Who is like God?" which was the battle cry of the good angels when they cast the rebellious Lucifer and his followers into hell. 
A story about St. Michael’s powerful intercession was told in a young marine’s letter home to his mother during the Korean War in 1950. It has been circulated ever since.

Go Ahead and Be a Martha

          “Don’t be a Maratha,” we are told, referring to the story of Mary and Martha in the New Testament.   Can you imagine such a thing?  I would not like it if people went around saying, “Don’t be a Patti.”. 
That is what came of Martha’s worrying about getting tasks done for her guests while her sister Mary simply sat and listened to Jesus.

“Let us pray,” he began. “We give you thanks, Oh God, for giving us another day. This has been a difficult and contentious week in which darker spirits seem to have been at play in the people’s house.”

Ex-Satanist That Built Basilica, Shows No One Beyond God’s Mercy


It would seem that being raised by devout Catholic parents who prayed the rosary daily would have pointed to a good and holy future for Bartolo Longo. And it did.  Eventually. First, he strayed so far from God that he became a satanic priest.

#SexStrike and #MeToo, 2 Sides of Same Coin

          
 

Wait a minute, I thought the #MeToo movement made it clear that it's not okay for men to pressure women for sex in exchange for giving the women what they want? But it's okay for women to use sex to get what they want?  Actress Alyssa Milano thinks so.
