@Ultraviolet: Interesting exposition and thoughts. Thanks for taking time to elaborate so candidly. I am inclined to be persuaded in part by your logic and I'd love to 'bat the breeze' with you sometime. In any event and until then I'd like to buy the world a Coke and be pope:

It's Hitting the Fan. Prepare for TOTAL Chaos

@Ultraviolet If you say so. Never seen any Vin Diesel flick. Even so, and not to quibble, isn't a 'preview trailer' effectively a commercial? Perhaps it's not a 'crummy' commercial but it is a commercial none the less, right?

Francis: Another No-Show

@fergalmj: "But I tell you, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, pray for those who persecute and insult you, that so you may be true sons of your Father in heaven, who makes his sun rise on the evil and equally on the good, his rain fall on the just and equally on the unjust. If you love those who love you, what title have you to a reward? Will not the publicans do as much? If you …More

If you love those who love you, what title have you to a reward? Will not the publicans do as much? If you greet none but your brethren, what are you doing more than others? Will not the very heathen do as much? But you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect." Matthew 5:44-48

In the Footsteps of JPII: Francis Goes Inter-religious

@Kenjiro M. Yoshimori I once had what was called a "Magic 8 Ball" as a child. Shake it up, turn it upside down, and an 'answer' to you question popped up through a glass bottom of the 8 Ball. Being naturally curious and wanting to know where the 'magic' came from, I smashed the Magic 8 Ball and black inky water poured out. In the center was a pyramid shaped object that had all of the answers …More
@Kenjiro M. Yoshimori I once had what was called a "Magic 8 Ball" as a child. Shake it up, turn it upside down, and an 'answer' to you question popped up through a glass bottom of the 8 Ball. Being naturally curious and wanting to know where the 'magic' came from, I smashed the Magic 8 Ball and black inky water poured out. In the center was a pyramid shaped object that had all of the answers printed on its various faces. Long story short...that Magic 8 Ball pyramid reminded me of this Masonic looking pyramid in the photo above. I was duped. Learned my lesson.

Priest Helped IRA To Kill Ten

@frawley You asked "Would you fight back if another country invaded your homeland?" Is blowing up the marching band (7 of them at Regent's Park) fighting back?

US bishops denounce death penalty | SWNEWS | 487

@ Rand Miller - I'd rather Francis followed in St. Francis of Assisi's footsteps and attempted to convert a few Muslim Sultans as St. Francis strove to do when evangelizing Sultan al-Malik al-Kamil.

"On the Faux Consecration" - Patrick Coffin's Points Covered:

@Just me - I cannot recall any words of Our Lady that specifically say that God is going to 'use Russia to bring about peace'. God is eventually going to convert Russia but there is nothing whatsoever to the effect that it is for the purpose of Russia bringing about world peace. The Immaculate Heart of Mary will bring that about. It is a tad dangerous to cast Russia in the role of divinely …More
@Just me - I cannot recall any words of Our Lady that specifically say that God is going to 'use Russia to bring about peace'. God is eventually going to convert Russia but there is nothing whatsoever to the effect that it is for the purpose of Russia bringing about world peace. The Immaculate Heart of Mary will bring that about. It is a tad dangerous to cast Russia in the role of divinely ordained world peacemaker as you seem to suggest.

Biden says Putin is a "Butcher" after visiting Ukrainian refugees in Poland

I wonder if he remotely comprehends how many children he has turned over to the abortionists to be butchered.

"On the Faux Consecration" - Patrick Coffin's Points Covered:

Just in respect of your opinion, John 333, regarding Russia annihilating the false church, remember that a kingdom divided against itself cannot stand, i.e. Satan does not cast out Satan.

Hate To Burst Your Bubble Files: “Franciscration ” Still Not Sufficient

Pope Benedict XVI declared Hildegard Von Bingen to be a Saint and Doctor of the Church on May 10, 2012 and Sister Elena Ailleo to be Blessed on September 14, 2011.
The former wrote many specific prophecies about the arrival of the Antichrist and the False Church. The latter wrote of a sudden invasion of Western Europe by Russia with attendant great devastation and bloodshed while America would …More

The former wrote many specific prophecies about the arrival of the Antichrist and the False Church. The latter wrote of a sudden invasion of Western Europe by Russia with attendant great devastation and bloodshed while America would battle Russia's 'secret armies'. I suggest by elevating these 2 women to the altars of the Church Pope Benedict XVI, aware of their prophecies, was sending a signal to the discerning Faithful.

Did Francis Confirm? Episcopate Will Join in For Consecration

@Ultraviolet What is cause for pause is that this 'consecration' is allowed unlimited media oxygen upon which to thrive. Why's that, given so many many issues not deemed PC or 'woke' are suffocated?

The Consecrations Comes: 105 Years After It Was Requested

The (ahem) pope who projects monkeys onto the Vatican walls, cozies up to every technological designer and device. I imagine it would be nothing to arrange for a sign in the heavens confirming this as 'the Consecration'; following which the Russians will lay down their arms. I smell a fix.
Since when does Bergolio give a fig about Marian holy days any way?
