Feast of Mary, Mother of God...she's your Mom too!

Brother Sama gives a great homily on Mary. It is impossible for the Christian to understand Mary and her place of honour without understanding the role of the mother in Eastern/Oriental kingdoms. Generally the king's mother, not his wife, is considered the queen. Being easterners, the Twelve Disciples, as they came to understand Jesus as King, would have understood Mary's place as their Queen and Mother. All of her actions and Christ's words about and toward her would have been understood in this sense.

God sent his Son so that we might receive adoption as sons.

Its on!

I recently watched a few Youtube videos that highlighted for me the fight we as followers of Christ are in. All across the globe, the evidence shows that Satan is making his final push. He is furious with anyone who attempts to hinder his drive to destroy civilization and, ultimately, our souls. And you can see his anger at in these faces of these "protesters".

Mary, Help of Christians, Pray for us.

Love the sinner.

Did Jesus love to pal around with porn stars? According to this Protestant pastor he did.

"We are opponents on stage but off stage we are great friends. That's really what this is about. Jesus dined with tax collectors and befriended prostitutes. I don't want to be known as the guy who debates Ron[Jeremy], I'd rather be known as the guy who loves Ron."

Did Christ really "befriend" prostitutes and tax collectors? I think that's a stretch. It's true that, unlike the religious leaders of the time, He went to them and called them to come out of their sin. Only then did anyone, fisherman or adulterer, become His friend. Indeed, none of us become His friend until we leave sin behind. This is the personal witness that Christ set as an example for us but that does not allow us to tolerate boastful sin. He expected a change and they went away changed. I wonder if Mr. Gross has explained fully the grave danger that Ron Jeremy has placed his soul? Seems to me he is more interested in debating and putting on a show with Jeremy than a real conversion. But those are just my thoughts. What are yours?

The True Face of Islam

The Imam in this video claims to be a moderate Muslim and says that Islam is against terrorism. Judge for yourself:

He can't even call Hamas a terrorist organization. So much for "moderate" Islam.

I'm Back!!

I have been embarrassingly negligent of this blog and the thing I hoped to accomplish (the glorification of Christ and His Church) with it when started it. Well, no more. I am pledging to myself, and any readers still left, that I will write at least one post a day. So while I finish up a post for today, here is the Introit for today's Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

Introit for the Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
