Another Hurricane

So now we have hurricane Wilma currently reeking havoc in another party town of Cancun, Mexico. Then it’s projected to possibly run thru another party town, Key West, FL.

How could one not consider all these disasters as a possible message from God? I’m not saying they are but they seem to be happening a tad too frequently and hitting places that don’t necessarily have a recent track record of Godliness.

All I know is that if I lived in Las Vegas or San Francisco I’d be a little on edge.

Are these disasters coincidence or a suggestion that we reread Matthew 3:2 “…Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!”

NCR – Not Catholic Right?

I went to Our Lady of Sorrows last week for Noon Mass. It was my first time going to Mass there, but I had seen pictures of Church. The church is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL. On my way in there was a table in the lobby area that had some flyers and a stack of newspapers. So I picked up one since it was named the “National Catholic Reporter”. I went on into the church and finished my Rosary. I then sat back in the pew and took a look at the “Catholic” paper.

Chastisement, End Times, or Both?

Is it just me or did events like these happen on a weekly basis when I was a kid and I just wasn’t paying attention?

8/29/05 Hurrican Katrina – Root Meaning is Purity. It hits New Orleans a week before the “Southern Decadence Parade” was to take place. 1200+ Reported Dead

The 1st Readings for Mass the day after the hurricane starts out with…
“Concerning times and seasons, brothers and sisters, you have no need for anything to be written to you. For you yourselves know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief at night. When people are saying, “Peace and security,” then sudden disaster comes upon them, like labor pains upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.
(1 Thessalonians 5:1-6)….

After the storm a Statue of Jesus remains standing behind the St. Louis Cathedral in the French Quarter missing two fingers.

Famous Quotes

“If we can accept that a mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?” – Mother Teresa

“I deplore the horrible crime of child murder. No matter what the motive-love of ease, or a desire to save from suffering the unborn innocent-the woman is awfully guilty who commits the deed.” – Susan B. Anthony

“Abortion is advocated only by persons who have themselves been born.”- Ronald Reagan

 “If we can accept that a mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?” – Mother Teresa

“Abortion is advocated only by persons who have themselves been born.”- Ronald Reagan

“America needs no words from me to see how your decision in Roe v. Wade has deformed a great nation. The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has portrayed the greatest of gifts–a child–as a competitor, an intrusion, and an inconvenience.” – Mother Theresa, Wall Street Journal

“A person is a person, no matter how small.” – Dr. Seuss

“When home ties are loosened, when men and women cease to regard a worthy family life, with all its duties fully performed and all its responsibilities lived up to, as the best life worth living, then evil days for the commonwealth are at hand. There are regions in our land, and classes of our population, where the birth rate has sunk below the death rate. Surely it should need no demonstration to show that willful sterility is, from the standpoint of the human race, the one sin for which the national penalty is national death, race death – a sin for which there is no atonement. “ – Theodore Roosevelt

“An abortion kills the life of a baby after it has begun. It is dangerous to your life and health. It may make you sterile, so that when you want a child you cannot have it… Birth control merely postpones the beginning of life.” – Planned Parenthood “Plan Your Children” pamphlet in 1963

“There is no difference between a first trimester, a second trimester, a third trimester abortion or infanticide. It’s all the same human being in different stages of development. I finally got to the point I couldn’t look at those little bodies anymore.” – Dr. Arnold Halpern, former director of a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic

“I am Norma McCorvey. I became known as Jane Roe on January 22, 1973 when the U.S. Supreme Court released the Roe v. Wade decision which created a woman’s “right to abortion”. I am now a child of God, a new creature in Christ; I am forgiven and redeemed. Today I publicly recant my involvement in the tragedy of abortion. I humbly ask forgiveness of the millions of women and unborn babies who have experienced the violence of abortion. In this place of healing, the National Memorial for the Unborn, I stand with those who honor the worth of every unborn child as created in the image of God. I will strive, in the name of Jesus, to end this holocaust.” – Norma McCorvey (Jane Roe)
