US nuke-ready jets drop bombs near North Korea !!!




U.S. Marine Corps F-35B Lightning II fighters assigned to Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni, Japan, are joined by South Korean Air Force F-15K fighters during a 10-hour mission from Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, to the Korean Peninsula on Aug. 30, 2017.

THE US staged its own terrifying show of strength today by dropping huge bombs near the North Korean border  - days after Kim Jong-un's latest missile outrage.

South Korea F-15K planes drop MK-82 bombs at a simulated target at the Pilseung Range in Gangwon.

Explosions erupt on the mountain landscape after being peppered by the munitions



The exercise was designed to "strongly counter North Korea's repeated ballistic missile tests and development of nuclear weapons," a South Korean official told CNN.
In a statement, the US air force said its bombers flew out of Andersen Air Force Base in Guam and four stealth fighter jets from a US Marine Corps base in Japan.
They conducted a shocking bombing attack, which simulated a surgical strike of key enemy facilities, over the Pilseung Range in the eastern province of Gangwon - which neighbours North Korea.

Four US F-35B fighter jets joined two nuclear-ready US B-1B bombers and four South Korean F-15 fighter jets in the joint military operation over the troubled Korean Peninsula.

I'm 52 ... I Wish I Knew How it Would Feel to be Free !!!




Memorial of the Passion of Saint John the Baptist


My brother Bill can really rip this.
GOD Bless my brother Chris.


Reading 11 COR 2:1-5

When I came to you, brothers and sisters,
proclaiming the mystery of God,
I did not come with sublimity of words or of wisdom.
For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you
except Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
I came to you in weakness and fear and much trembling,
and my message and my proclamation
were not with persuasive words of wisdom,
but with a demonstration of spirit and power,
so that your faith might rest not on human wisdom
but on the power of God.


GospelMK 6:17-29

Herod was the one who had John the Baptist arrested and bound in prison
on account of Herodias, 
the wife of his brother Philip, whom he had married.
John had said to Herod,
“It is not lawful for you to have your brother’s wife.”
Herodias harbored a grudge against him
and wanted to kill him but was unable to do so.
Herod feared John, knowing him to be a righteous and holy man,
and kept him in custody.
When he heard him speak he was very much perplexed,
yet he liked to listen to him.
She had an opportunity one day when Herod, on his birthday,
gave a banquet for his courtiers,
his military officers, and the leading men of Galilee.
Herodias’ own daughter came in
and performed a dance that delighted Herod and his guests.
The king said to the girl,
“Ask of me whatever you wish and I will grant it to you.”
He even swore many things to her,
“I will grant you whatever you ask of me,
even to half of my kingdom.”
She went out and said to her mother,
“What shall I ask for?”
She replied, “The head of John the Baptist.”
The girl hurried back to the king’s presence and made her request,
“I want you to give me at once
on a platter the head of John the Baptist.”
The king was deeply distressed,
but because of his oaths and the guests
he did not wish to break his word to her.
So he promptly dispatched an executioner with orders
to bring back his head.
He went off and beheaded him in the prison.
He brought in the head on a platter and gave it to the girl.
The girl in turn gave it to her mother.
When his disciples heard about it,
they came and took his body and laid it in a tomb.



AMEN !!!

Catholic San Domenico School ........ Lord Krishna ....... All Saints Day ???


San Domenico School in GAY Parenting !!!


San Domenico School Tuition !!!


I keep wondering, why shell out so much money for a fake catholic education ?
Some may think that line of thought illogical.




Remember ...

"The San Domenico School, a Dominican Catholic institution, removed the majority of its campus’ 180 religious statues and icons, prompting several parents to claim that the school is abandoning its Catholic heritage to be more pluralistic".


This is Kahn.
http://www.sandomenico.org/cf_news/view.cfm?newsid=697

And ...

“The Dominican teaching philosophy is not to teach there is only one truth,” Kahn said. “It is to foster conversation, to intentionally invite in participants that have different perspectives in a very open-ended process of philosophical and spiritual inquiry. That has been a long-standing part of the Dominican tradition.”

Below are examples of "saints" the children learned about last year.




-Mirza Khan, Director of Religious Studies:
In preparation for our community's All Saints' Day celebrations, all San Domenico Students have been learning about saints and holy people from many different cultures and religions. Upper School and Middle School celebrated with the All Saints prayer service in Dominican Hall. For services this year we have chosen to present: St. Joan of Arc, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Black Elk, Bodhidharma, Krishna, and Rumi. Each year we observe this holiday to honor and learn about saints and holy people throughout history and across many faiths. We also recognize these holy individuals in the hope of finding our own inner saints - our true selves, which exist deep within our hearts.
Each of the selected saints has an associated question for the students to help prepare themselves to experience the prayer service in a really meaningful way. Students also had the opportunity to choose a 'saint card' as a physical reminder to live out the ideal of the saint represented on their card, such as: courage, love, peace, and joy.
Please take some time to look over the saints and their questions, posed in the spirit of that holy person's teachings:

Catholic School Removes Statues To Be More ‘Inclusive’

San Domenico School .............. dropping enrollment .............. to begin admitting boys in 2015 !!!


“The Dominican teaching philosophy is not to teach there is only one truth,” 
Mirza Khan, Director of Religious Studies for the middle school, argued that pluralism and the denial of absolute truth was in line with Dominican Catholic teaching, despite objections from devout Catholic parents and the philosophy’s apparent contradiction in 
the Apostle’s Creed, which is the Catholic Church’s profession of faith.


JOSHUA GILL

Religion Reporter

A Catholic school in California has angered several parents by stripping its campus and curriculum of Catholic statues and teachings, ostensibly to be more inclusive.
The San Domenico School, a Dominican Catholic institution, removed the majority of its campus’ 180 religious statues and icons, prompting several parents to claim that the school is abandoning its Catholic heritage to be more pluralistic, according to Marinij. School leadership maintained that the school was still Catholic, but parents pointed out that the removal of the statues and icons was only the latest in a series of moves that made the school less Catholic.
“Articulating an inclusive foundation appears to mean letting go of San Domenico’s 167-year tradition as a Dominican Catholic school and being both afraid and ashamed to celebrate one’s heritage and beliefs,” reads an email to school leadership from Shannon Fitzpatrick, mother of one of the school’s students.
“In our time here, the word ‘Catholic’ has been removed from the mission statement, sacraments were removed from the curriculum, the lower school curriculum was changed to world religions, the logo and colors were changed to be ‘less Catholic,’ and the uniform was changed to be less Catholic,” Fitzpatrick added.
Fitzpatrick said other parents raised similar concerns that the school was abandoning its faith, and that many are angered that the school did not notify them of the changes before enrolling their children for the next year.
“I am extremely disappointed in the school and the direction they’ve been going,” said Cheryl Newell, mother of four San Domenico graduates. “This isn’t a new thing that they’ve been intentionally eroding their Catholic heritage. They’re trying to be something for everyone and they’re making no one happy.”
“The one main statue that has everyone fired up is the baby Jesus and Mary one,” said Kim Pipki, whose daughter left the school after 9th grade. “It was at the center of the primary school courtyard.”
School leadership responded to claims that the school was becoming less Catholic and said that while the school is in fact Catholic, it is also open to students of all faiths. Leadership made the decision to remove Catholic references in order to attract more prospective families who might consider enrolling their children in an independent school.
“San Domenico is both a Catholic school and an independent school,” said Cecily Stock, Head of School. “But what we were finding after doing some research is that in the broader community we are known as being a Catholic school and are not necessarily known as an independent school. We want to make sure that prospective families are aware that we are an independent school.”
“San Domenico is a Catholic school; it also welcomes people of all faiths,” said Sister Maureen McInerney, prioress general of the Dominican Sisters of San Rafael. “It is making an effort to be inclusive of all faiths.”
Mirza Khan, Director of Religious Studies for the middle school, argued that pluralism and the denial of absolute truth was in line with Dominican Catholic teaching, despite objections from devout Catholic parents and the philosophy’s apparent contradiction in the Apostle’s Creed, which is the Catholic Church’s profession of faith.
“The Dominican teaching philosophy is not to teach there is only one truth,” Kahn said. “It is to foster conversation, to intentionally invite in participants that have different perspectives in a very open-ended process of philosophical and spiritual inquiry. That has been a long-standing part of the Dominican tradition.”

San Domenico School .............. dropping enrollment .............. to begin admitting boys in 2015 !!!



...170 students came to school dressed in black, to express mourning for the change.
...The decision, made Friday through a unanimous vote by the school's 20-member board of directors, was driven by the high school's dropping enrollment, which has gradually declined from 300 in the last 50 years. While the motive is largely financial, the move is in response to what administrators say is a declining demand for single-gender schools.

This is a GREAT video !!!


Published on Nov 10, 2014 July 12, 2014
Hosted by the Institute of Catholic Culture

His education includes a master's degree in Philosophy from the University of Notre Dame, the Master of Divinity Degree from the Weston School of Theology in Cambridge, MA, and a doctorate in Moral Theology from the Gregorian University in Rome, with specialization in fundamental moral theology and bioethics.

Bishop Morlino:“I will offer this Mass ad orientem.”


On September 4, Bp. Robert Morlino of the diocese of Madison, Wisconsin, announced the change at his Sunday Pontifical Mass. During the homily he declared that all his Novus Ordo Masses at St. Patrick parish are to be said facing the same direction as the people. Since the cathedral burned down nearly 10 years ago, Bp. Morlino has been using St. Patrick’s and two other parishes as his cathedral.
“Planning according to the mind of God,” he announced. “And I’m doing that right now in what I’m about to say. I’m planning for us in accord to the mind of God.”
He continued, “In October I will start to offer this Mass here at St. Patrick’s on Sunday morning, when I am here, ad orientem.”

LAKE GARDA INTERVIEW: On Bishops, Popes



Published on Aug 3, 2017
Michael Matt interviews the former president of Una Voce International--English barrister, Lt. Colonel James Bogle on the situation in the Church under Pope Francis, silent bishops, religious liberty, racism and Catholic culture. What built Europe? Why are so many people from all over the world fascinated by Europe? What brings tourists flocking to Europe’s greatest attractions? Two words: Catholic Church--the only completely non-racist religion in the world! This is a preview of the RT documentary on the Roman Forum in Italy, to be released later this month.

"Catholic Zombies, who are worse than the Protestants"...

What Do Brexit, the Election of Donald Trump, and the Traditionalist Movement Have in Common?
Christopher A. Ferrara gives a hard-hitting and carefully reasoned analysis of the current and increasingly serious dilemma we find ourselves in – and some challenging ideas for how faithful members of the Church Militant can faithfully respond. As Catholics become increasingly concerned about the alarming direction of the current pontificate, it appears increasingly evident that we have not been given the whole truth about the Third Secret of Fatima and the enigmatic “Bishop dressed in white.” He is President and Chief Counsel for the American Catholic Lawyers Association. He is a prolific writer for Catholic magazines and periodicals; he is active in the pro-life movement; his latest book is The Great Facade: The Regime of Novelty in the Catholic Church from Vatican II to the Francis Revolution (Second Edition).

Spouse of Christ, sustain me in suffering, fortify me in temptation, protect me in the dangers surrounding me, obtain for me the graces necessary to me, and in particular
(Here specify your petition).
Above all, assist me at the hour of my death. Saint Philomena, powerful with God, pray for us. Amen.

O God, Most Holy Trinity, we thank Thee for the graces Thou didst bestow upon the Blessed Virgin Mary, and upon Thy handmaid Philomena, through whose intercession we implore Thy Mercy. Amen.
