Russian Professor Predicts U.S. Collapse like Soviet Union of 1976

Regarding the following:

The prediction may not be so far-fetched. If Democrats and Barack Obama persist in their alienation of people of faith, including Obama's promise to pass FOCA (Freedom of Choice Act) which would wipe out all gains made against the slaughter of innocent unborn children and doctors, nurses and other health care workers are forced to kill, or partake in the killing of unborn children against their will, you will see a Civil war in the United States.

In the Civil War over slavery, Abraham Lincoln started a war to hold the country together. Now, 4,000 children are killed every day in their mother's womb -- 1.3 million every year. This is far worse than the events that led up to the Civil war. Some states will try to secede from the Union and for good reason -- the red states.

The blue states will be the home of the baby killers and all those who say women should have the right to have their children killed, the pornographers, homosexuals and all others wh…

Beautiful Reasons for Praying the Rosary

Beautiful Reasons for Praying the Rosary

Father Gabriel Amorth, Chief Exorcist of the Vatican writes:

One day a colleague of mine heard the devil say during an exorcism, 'Every Hail Mary is like a blow on my head. If Christians knew how powerful the Rosary was, it would be my end.'

The secret that makes this prayer so effective is that the Rosary is both prayer and meditation. It is addressed to the Father, to the Blessed Virgin, and to the Holy Trinity, and is a meditation centered on Christ.

In the case of the public Rosary there are only two people speaking: the Leader and the respondents. Each is speaking to the Blessed Mother and listening carefully to her response within their hearts as they meditate on the scene before them in their consideration of the mystery being spoken of and interpreted and translated into their lives.

Spread this powerful prayer of exorcism, the Rosary, which contains the "Our Father", the Perfect Prayer, prayed fiv…

When a Catholic Feels he or she is being ATTACKED for their Faith

By Father Trigilio

When I was in high school seminary, we had a professor who introduced us to forensic debating but in a fun way. We had mock courts with judges, juries, defense and prosecuting attorneys. Like the scholastic disputation method done in the time of Saint Thomas Aquinas, we held trials (debates) on such things as the death penalty, abortion, euthanasia, etc. A priest was always the judge but all he did was to rule on our arguments and never injected his opinion. We had another teacher as our coach (senior partner in the firm, so to speak)

What I found was that when compelled to formulate a coherent argument or defense, it makes you appreciate more what you believe. Appeal to sympathy and other logical fallacies were immediately dismissed. One had to use LOGIC and some persuasive argumentation. It also helped knowing what the other side would try to reason in their defense.

Issues like slavery, segregation, prohibition, etc., were also looked at.

Bottom line is to ma…

Horror: Millions of Baptized Christians ...Vastly Increased Number of Murders

"The horror—can anyone still feel genuine horror?—the horror is that millions of baptized Christians have enabled the culture of death to make a quantum jump into unrestrained evil. Regardless of how they have justified this to themselves, the objective consequences of their choice will be a vastly increased number of murders in this land—murder being, by definition, the unjust taking of human life."

Dear Friends,


Posted on yesterday’s Lifes! ite News (the worldwide pro-life news service) there is a report of a talk I gave in Toronto two days ago. My remarks were about the difference between the “heroism” of Don Quixote and the authentic sanctified heroism of David facing Goliath. Both men confronted giants, each in a radically different way. If you would like to read the report, the link is:

God's Plan for Salvation, the Immaculate Conception

http://www.unitypublishing.com/Apparitions/Immaculate%20Conception.htm

The Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary:

God’s Preparation for the Divine Humanity

Thou art all fair, O my love, and there is not a spot in thee!

(Canticle of Canticles 4:7)

This Scripture passage describes so beautifully God’s masterpiece of creation, that chosen vessel, the Virgin Mary, destined from eternity to bear God into our world. Mary’s vocation as Theotokos, God-bearer of the Redeemer, Mother of the Divine Humanity, is a mission that by its very purpose necessitated her singular privilege of the Immaculate Conception. She who was to give her very flesh and blood to the Son of the living God, the All-Holy One in Whose presence not the slightest impurity can stand, must herself be untouched by any impurity in order to be a fitting dwelling place for Him. She is conceived in God’s eternal mind, the firstborn creature from the bosom of the Father’s unfathomable love. She is the first fru…

Was the Economic Meltdown Manufactured?

I don't know. I wouldn't put it past the pro-abortion and gay mafia, who from a large part of the economic elite, to cause hardship for millions to bring about their agenda.

But the economy may not be in as bad shape as the media was saying. This is what Steve Forbes has to say:

"The global economy still retains enormous strengths…The world is flush with cash. It’s frozen because of fear, but the cash is there. Productivity gains are burgeoning. So will this global boom resume next year, slowly at first and then with increasing momentum?

"The proper conservative focus is given by the man I supported for president before George W. Bush defeated him and who has, I believe, a superb economic mind in the U.S. with a journalist’s ability to put ideas in plain words: Steve Forbes.

“Belatedly, governments realized the only way to get credit flowing again was to make massive infusions of new equity into failing banks…Despite the crisis, the global economy still retains enormo…

Beware of Fake Pro-Lifers: Matthew 25 Network and Doug Kmiec

Don't Listen to the Counterfeit Pro-Lifers Like Matthew 25 Network and Kmiec
Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) --

Last week, nationally-recognized pro-life nurse and blogger Jill Stanek wrote a column about fake pro-lifers. She responded to groups like the Matthew 25 Network and Obama backers like Doug Kmiec who tried to fool pro-life voters into thinking pro-abortion candidate Barack Obama wasn't so bad.

Stanek says so-called pro-life advocates like them never show up with the millions of Americans who are genuinely pro-life. "If you've missed spotting any of these pro-life 'activists,' the clueless Washington Post deemed them, at pro-life events like the annual March for Life, or speaking or writing on the pro-life issue, it's because they've been MIA." Stanek says she's always ready to welcome a pro-life convert to the cause.

"Just not Obama supporters who argued that despite his support of abortion on demand even after delivery, Obama'…

California: "69,000 HIV/AIDS Deaths due to Male/Male Sex"

Should California Declare Homosexuality 'Marriage' in Light of HIV/AIDS Data?
On World AIDS Day, Accountability Needed in California
COLUMBUS, Ohio, Dec. 1 /Christian Newswire/ -- For two decades, the U.S. has done virtually nothing to arrest the behavior causing most cases of HIV/AIDS in this country: homosexual sex.

In California, homosexuals are now demanding their behaviors be considered "marriage," even if it means subverting a lawful vote.

Let's look at California and HIV/AIDS:

1. In California, 67% of HIV/AIDS cases are directly linked to male homosexual behavior, with another 9% involving the combined risks of males having sex with males (MSM) and injection drug use (IDU)(Source: California Department of Public Health).

2. California has experienced 69,000 HIV/AIDS deaths due to male/male sex since the beginning of the epidemic (From CDPH data).

3. In California, nearly 62,000 people are now living with HIV or AIDS (Source: CDC 2006 Surveillance Report). Apply…

Pope Benedict XVI May Change Catholic Mass

Pope May Change Catholic Mass
Saturday, November 29, 2008

Pope Benedict XVI may change the sequence of the Catholic Mass, including the sign of peace exchanged between worshipers, in order "to create a more meditative climate" of worship, a senior Vatican official said.

Cardinal Francis Arinze said the pope had asked all bishops for their views on whether the sign of peace, which is shared before Communion, should be moved to an earlier point in the Mass.

Arinze, who heads the Vatican body in charge of liturgy and sacraments, made the announcement in last Saturday's edition of the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano.

"The meaning of this gesture is often not fully understood," Arinze said. "It is thought to be a chance to shake hands with friends. Instead it is a way to tell those nearby that the peace of Christ, really present on the altar, is also with all men."…

Palin's Priorties of God and Family vs. Leftist and Republican Elitist

-"Since the election [Palin] has fearlessly and steadfastly stated her priorties- God, family- stop right there, because that is enough to enrage the leftist [as well as some Republican elitist] and drive them to relentless attacks."

- "Apparently, insiders of both parties are afraid that Sarah might represent the majority of Americans."

McCain Owes Sarah Some Straight Talk

Where's John McCain's honor when we need it?


We'll find out tonight, when the Arizona Republican appears on "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno. In the week since the election, Mr. McCain's campaign team has leaked some nasty stuff about Sarah Palin. These leaks are personal, and they speak more to the character of Mr. McCain and the leakers than they do to Mrs. Palin. So it will be telling if Mr. McCain stands up for his partner and says how offended he has been by what some of…

Palin: "I think the Republican Ticket Represented too much of the Status Quo"

-“I think the Republican ticket represented too much of the status quo, too much of what had gone on in these last eight years, that Americans were kind of shaking their heads like going, wait a minute, how did we run up a $10 trillion debt in a Republican administration? How have there been blunders with war strategy under a Republican administration?” Palin said.

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said Sunday that she and running mate John McCain lost because the Republican ticket “represented too much of the status quo.”
