Fr Pacwa has a brilliant mind and a priestly heart. He is a credit to the Jesuits.

I guess I didn't make myself entirely clear. Alinsky would say, don't protest a slum residence in the slum go into the suburban neigborhood where the slum owner lives. The neignbors would say, we don't care what you do for a living but get these blacks and hispanics out of our neighborhood.

If I were to advise the pro Life people, I would tell them to borrow a page from the leftist Saul Alinsky. Find out where these assailants live. Take a still picture of the man sexually asaulting the Pro Lifer and make a large poster of the event.

"Your Neighbor is a thief" etc. etc. The key is to go to the person's own neighborhood. I bet they stop.

I hope that we all should look around every corner as if God is about to appear and to stay awake to the opportunity of God's grace, in both pain and in joy.

Thank you for this insightful homily delivered in a gentle and sincere manner. May all mothers take hope from Monica and pray for their children. To be a witness to Christ does not require us to shout and make scenes. A gentle and persistant presentation of the truth is that small whispering voice of God in our midst. I pray that you will continue on the path of priesthood you are on and be under the protection of our Blessed Mother.

I am always impressed by Fr. Pacwa's knowledge and ability to bring history alive even when he has a soar throat like in this video. St. Peter Claver like all saints was truly remarkable.

If we ever do get accurate statistics on clergy from other religions, I suspect that they will mirror exactly what we find among Catholic clergy. Less than one percent molesting Children under the age of 10 and another 3 percent going after adolescent boys and girls with 80 percent of the victims being boys.

Pope Benedict like John Paul II continues to be a marvelous "bridge builder" between peoples. Pontifex! May Pope Benedict continue to be a light for a darkened world. Fr. Groeshel and his fellow religious do a marvelous work of witness to the poorest of the poor and the spiritually bankrupt as well.

We need to keep preaching purity and chastity. It is a source of joy while promiscuity leads to hell on earth. Lfe on the Rock, rocks!
