I would really enjoy it if one of the Antique road show appraisers would look into the camera with as much emotion and intensity as a surgeon delivering a dire prognosis and say to us, "This item that you've brought to share with us today is a TOTAL PIECE OF CRAP", and then the price scrawled across the bottom of the screen would say, "Piece of crap; value, non-negligible". "Wasted time; services rendered",
 -$25.00

 The really sad thing is that not only will the world want to devour us but so will a majority of our Catholic brethren, and because they know us and understand us, they will hurt us the most. They'll be some of our family members, people we love. We can see the groundwork being laid on social medias with the snide remarks I get from lukewarm or worse yet, adversarial Catholics who want to argue about every doctrine, and comment coming from the Vatican unless of course it fits their agenda. They are fueled by their hatred because Catholic authority is inflexible, which of course is correct and just. For church teaching to accommodate the winds of change would make it a fraudulent religion. Most of these young to nearing middle age adults act entitled or at the very least were made to feel special as children and of course, they were special because their parents only had one or two of them to throw all of their resources, financial and emotional into. This is where children learned about compromising and negotiating with authority. Their parents world revolved around the child, but that too was a fallacy because those kids were raised predominately by daycare, television, computers and liberal school systems. Authority figures make them feel uncomfortable and do you know what they will do with regulations or people who make them feel  uncomfortable? They will use legalism as they negotiate and legislate against people who still believe in the Holy Catholic church, out of existence as they had successfully done in 1973.

Failure to remain intact while steeped in sin? Go figure. And 

when they call upon their spiritual Father for help, and 

direction, who exactly comes?  Oh, and don't think for one 

second some entity doesn't come. Remember, we are the

prize in this battle.

Our supreme court has openly mocked God. Our nation had 

a chance before the court conspired to sin. It's the

united consenses that put America over the edge.

 I'm terrified of what comes next,...when God plays his hand.

I'm noticing a line being drawn in the sand between the liberal and conservative Catholics. In my opinion the resulting changes will be profound and heartbreaking. I suppose each Catholic person has already decided which side of the line they will straddle. Just keep in mind, we will be held personally accountable for each of those  decisions.

Up for a little spiritual warfare today?


Yeah,... let's go there.

Discipline doesn't disappoint, in fact it rules.



It's super important to learn how to control your emotions, and desires and to "Master" yourself because our prisons are full of people who were unable to do it for themselves.

Don't ever consider trying to "Master" someone else when you have a speck in your own eye. Trying to control another person is a serious error in judgement. It's a waste of  your energy, time, and emotions, but specifically it's a waste of your life. Quickly learn the differences between a persons personality traits, quirks, and annoying behaviors, and their sins. Sinful behavior should never be accepted, never embraced or encouraged, and always promptly forgiven.   More growth can be accomplished if you set an example and keep yourself quiet and pray to the Holy Spirit to "enlighten" your subject of affection, but don't be surprised if you're the one who "Gets" enlightened instead, because only God can change people, but first we've got to get out of his way. 


(Please either ignore me or indulge me as I write to my children.)

Listening to two Jesuits on PBS makes me wanna pull my hair out, 

although a better alternative would be a chance to pull theirs.

Hard won salvation



 Could someone please safeguard the red shoes until they're worn again because the blood of our martyrs will never ever become inconsequential, in fact their blood as a witness to Christ is eternal.





If our leader could be considered a thief, you can only imagine what 

kind of sinners the rest of us are.

Exorcising tough love



Dear homeschoolers, leaving the rest of the world in the wake of your many successes doesn't encourage a public who grows impatient with a group of people whom we feel consider themselves to be better than the rest of us. As a group, you've left a trail of humiliated, embarrassed, and angry educators, a handful of game show hosts (- makes me laugh), and politicians whose ineffective solutions so far have proven to be more of an exercise in waste and frustration.

Fearfully consider the people in powerful positions who wipe their bottoms with your awesome test scores as they lie in wait to pounce on a smug group of people with sucky social skills because your destain for the rest of us, ie; the world, has been made clear to us every time you speak. I agree, homeschooled people are better than the rest of us, but ya'll better keep it on the down-low because humility rules.  Does anyone remember why the Mormons were driven from Missouri? Some were even murdered. Remember too , that being brighter than your brethren creates new problems for yourselves as your gift of knowledge isn't a solution in itself  as you must consider your responsibilities of service towards your fellow man has now magnified. Lastly, as you graze at the foot of the tree of knowledge, consider what caused the downfall of man in the first place.


*Disclaimer, Using exorcising in the context as I had done was intentional and not a result of my lilliputian brain power,... feel free to correct my punctuation.

"Frozen" - The prequel




About ten years ago, I found a note while I was cleaning our daughter Elizabeth's bedroom. She had written down a dozen or so of her lifes goals though I can only remember one of them because I thought it was so unrealistic, dreamy and unattainable. She wrote; #8, I want to work on an academy award winning movie. I thought, geeze she's in for a lifetime of supreme disappointment and I figured that four year degree in painting pretty much sealed the deal as a tenured waitress at Denny's. Anyway, she did it, and we're super proud of her. Sometimes God's will is stunning, yet even so, he didn't make the ride any less difficult or painful for her as he pushed her onward.

*The above concept art pictured, was not made by Elizabeth. Our daughter's a lighter , who I like to say, "Makes the Disney magic". She worked on the snow queens ice castle and dealt with refraction issues as she made the ice reflect, sparkle, and shine.

 I hope God remembers I have a list as well, it's super short, only one thing listed, also surprising, but no one can find it because it's written on my heart where only God can see it

 As the Archbishop of New Orleans maybe he could start by convincing his own people to avoid these kind of services, though past experiences have taught me that converting the pew sitters is nearly an impossibility. Christians tend to be self righteous in their sins, indignant, steadfast and above correction. The scenario is different but the theme is the always same, it's about defiance. Now I understand how humility is a factor in our salvation, as we humble not only our bodies but our mind and it's thoughts to the Lord.
