K4C Posting biblical quotes or quotes from the saints seems to be your Modus Operandi but doing so adds nothing new to the discussion and that is why I deleted your post. Anyone can do it. Although it requires more consideration, post your own thoughts as I did earlier.
In his column, Gregory said that "churches and other places of worship are intended to be sanctuaries – holy sites where people come to pray and to worship God." Bishop Gregory: Tell that to the next armed criminal who will go to an Atlanta Catholic Church because he knows the sheep have no way to protect themselves since YOU have disarmed them.
Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. ~Thomas Jefferson~ [More]

If more Christians (including Catholic bishops who represent over 100 million Catholics in the U.S.)would take this public stand, we could end Obamacare's abortion-drug mandate for good. Instead. these cowardly bishops violate Church Law (Canon 915) and give Communion to pro abort Catholic pols. They make a mockery of One True Church established by Jesus Christ.

Here are four things to know about Pope John Paul II's relationship with Marcial Maciel: 1. Father Maciel founded the Legionaries of Christ in 1941 and was ordained to the Roman Catholic priesthood in 1944 in Mexico City. He accompanied Pope John Paul II during the late pontiff's visits to Mexico in 1979, 1990, and 1993. In 1990, Father Maciel was appointed by Pope John Paul II to the Ordinary Assembly of the Synod of Bishops on the Formation of Priests in Circumstances of the Present Day. 2. …[More]
This seems to be an accurate news story from a well known internet news site in which victims of Catholic Sexual abuse are commenting. What would you say to those victims who suffered during the pontificate of JP-II? Would you tell them to just "get over their trauma" and celebrate his canonization? Or, would you tell them that JP-II did everything humanly possible to rid the Catholic Church from pedophile priests and their enablers in the episcopate who reassigned them to other dioceses? If … [More]

The term seems ok to me. What would you prefer "Homos minus their purple-headed warrior and the twins"? I think the point of the story is not the word "transgendered" but how this creature was honored by the Catholic Church, the Pope's Church of the Gesù, the mother church of the pope’s Jesuit order. Certainly we have no objections to burying the dead, which is one of the corporal works of mercy -- but it is one thing to have buried Mr. Quintero respectfully but quietly, and another to give …[More]
I don't think nuns would work singing this song in this manner. Maybe we could find ladies who are somewhere in between the extremes of pious nuns on one hand and the 'hot blondes' on the other? I'm thinking of Gloria.tv's own Doina and Lucia.
@Jethro: Thank you for making my point. The pop version does allow one to say that the female singers "are hot". On the other hand, I would not say about any nuns singing the spiritual original: "Them broads is hot, man!". Why? The sanctity of the spirituality of the original does not permit such language. Your language, proper to the "hot blondes", is understandable and correct given the situation. Why? Because the "hot blondes" are not seeking to capture and express the Holy. There is a … [More]
