Petition urging terror label for Antifa gets enough signatures for White House response

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 16:39:32 GMT

A petition put up just days ago urging the Trump administration to label the left-wing Antifa a “terror group” has attracted well over the 100,000 signatures needed to merit a formal White House response.http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/08/21/petition-urging-terror-label-for-antifa-gets-enough-signatures-for-white-house-response.html As much as I detest this group, I don't think this is necessary. All we need to do is enforce the laws we already have and it will quickly put an end to Antifa's violent activities. Unfortunately law enforcement in many cities have been overly tolerant of this group even after they have assaulted people and vandalized property.



To get my Contract approved

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 16:39:01 GMT

I'm waiting for approval on a contract. This would give me semi-stable work for the first time in 3 years. It would be great to actually work again and not just in small bursts for next to nothing. Unemployment is boring. Thanks in advance to everyone who prays. :) :gopray: Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

US Secret Service crunched by Trump and family's travel

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 15:39:58 GMT

US Secret Service crunched by Trump and family's travel (https://www.yahoo.com/news/us-secret-crunched-trump-familys-travel-141230576.html) ---Quote--- The US Secret Service is facing a cash crunch because of the high cost of protecting President Donald Trump, his many homes and large family, its director said in an interview published Monday. Randolph "Tex" Ailes, the service's chief, told USA Today more than 1,000 agents have already hit caps for the year on salary and overtime pay because of the crushing workload. With 150 foreign heads of state due to converge on New York next month for the UN General Assembly, demands on the service are only intensifying.



When were confederate monuments erected and why?

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 15:32:10 GMT

This graph (https://www.splcenter.org/sites/default/files/whoseheritage-timeline150_years_of_iconography.jpg) shows the timeline of the erection of confederate monuments from the time of the Civil War to the present. It is interesting to note that relatively few monuments were erected in the 30 years following the Civil War, which one might expect if their purpose was to "preserve history." The biggest push for confederate statues happens to coincide nicely with the peak of the Jim Crow era. Another peak occurred right during the Civil Rights movement. Coincidence? I think not (https://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/zootopia/images/7/74/Coincidence-i-think-not.jpg/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/640?cb=20160507025359). A more reasonable explanation for the timing of these monuments is that they were erected at times of racial tension by those in power who wanted to maintain that power by glorifying the men who fought for that cause.

Should I buy this game?

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 14:46:26 GMT

One character says: "bigger than *beep* Jesus". The *beep* is literal because it is autocensored. Otherwise it is an ok game. Only that the mentioned character swears a lot. Should I buy it? Would it be a mortal sin?



Knifeman attacks Navy officer after mistaking him for a neo-Nazi because of his HAIRCUT

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 14:45:28 GMT

---Quote--- A Colorado man says he was slashed after an anti-fascist mistakenly identified him as a neo-Nazi, because of his haircut. Joshua Witt, 26, took to his Facebook page to post about the frightening incident in Sheridan, and says he's luck to be alive. He says he has no tattoos or anything else that would indicate he's a neo-Nazi, but says his friends have explained, it's his haircut. Witt's cut is similar to what people have identified as the neo-Nazi cut after countless images have flashed on TV and online from the deadly Charlottesville, Virginia protests. His cut is long-on-top, buzzed-on-the-sides. ---End Quote---



Falling out of love in record time :/

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 14:41:31 GMT

I've been "dating" my GF since the end of of Jan., although we became exclusive in April, and I told her I loved her toward the end of May. And that was the absolute truth. However, we're only just coming up on September and although I would say I still do "love" her, I don't have a strong sensation of being "in-love". I can say, "I love you," some times when it feels natural for me to do so, but my GF says it more frequently than I. And when she says it, I know I have to respond with "I love you, too," and I inwardly cringe. This has been occurring more frequently in the past couple of weeks. To the point that I have to consciously make sure my face doesn't contort when I say it. Is this normal? Was I ever in love? Or am I falling out of love as quick as I fell into it? I've been in love before, and the feeling in both instances were identical, but in the first case, I just kept falling deeper and deeper for months and months before I worked up the courage to end that...



Cardinal Sarah: The new revolutionaries are trying to destroy the Christian family

Who will have the courage to rise up without any weapons other than the rosary and the Sacred Heart, to face the columns of death of our time?” These modern “columns of death”, the cardinal explained, were “relativism, indifferentism and contempt for God ---End Quote---



The true meaning of Amoris Laetitia ?

https://cruxnow.com/vatican/2017/08/21/papal-confidante-says-amoris-critics-locked-death-trap-logic/ This is one of the best commentaries on the Pope's of exhortation I have read.

May he be blessed by the Spirit with continued strength and courage!

What does it mean to see a spirit?

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 10:54:30 GMT

I was very surprised earlier when my grandpa, nearly 80, told me something that occurred the other night. I have never heard him speak in such a way before and he would not tell a lie about such a thing. He is a Roman Catholic. He said the other night he was asleep and all of a sudden woke up feeling like there was someone in the room with him. He then turned his head very quickly and saw what he described as a spirit in an all white robes, hovering almost at the foot of his bed. He could not see its legs. He seemed to describe the spirit as male and said it had almost a Friar Tuck haircut. The spirit did not disappear instantly but gradually vanished over about 3 seconds into thin air. He then started praying and could not get back to sleep. It was not a dream. What could this mean and who could it have been? I've always been the one to believe in this sort of thing, where he hasn't, though I don't believe I've ever seen such a thing myself. The house is only 20 years old and...

Work stress, alienated son, car stolen: more grace please

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 09:58:12 GMT

Hi, can you hold me up in prayer for this week and maybe through Sept 16? Have major project to complete at work, onboarding new employee, son who hasn't communicated with me for months emailing me his first college bills ("...and mom already paid her part...") and my car was stolen this past Saturday (and my wallet was in it). I am totally relying on God to help me through my small trials here. Please pray for my peace in continued reliance upon God's grace and providence. Thank you!!



Starting Physical Therapy Grad School Tomorrow

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 07:17:29 GMT

Hi everyone, I am will be starting physical therapy grad school tomorrow, and I am extremely nervous, terrified, and partially depressed. I already feel overwhelmed after orientation last week (and school hasn't even started yet). I feel as if I am unprepared and not ready to tackle on so much studying. I am somewhat depressed that this 3 year commitment will take over my life and that I will not have time to enjoy the fun things in life with family and friends. On the other hand, I am a little happy that I finally got accepted to physical therapy school and that I am taking the steps to get physical therapy school over with sooner so that I can start my career. Please pray that God Blesses me with strength, perseverance, confidence, and wisdom to excel and succeed in physical therapy school and as a physical therapist.



Pray for my Dad

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 06:40:08 GMT

I just wanted to ask you to pray for my Dad, whose name is Ron. I don't know exactly what to pray for him. I would like Him to know how much God loves him. I don't know if he does know this. He grew up with an abusive stepfather and was belittled and criticized all the time. I don't know if he has an image of God as a loving Father. I just wanted to ask for prayers for him. Please let me know if there are any Saints who would be especially good to pray for him. Thank you again. God bless you. Amen.



Husband ignores requests about his appearance

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 06:39:07 GMT

We haven't always had the easiest road in our marriage (as former posts will illustrate), but we've been going stronger than ever for a couple of years now after counseling and hard work. There are still some kinks and much growing to do but I wanted to get feedback on the following: It might sound really silly but it's getting on my nerves. My husband has let his appearance go. He gets awful haircuts. I've encouraged him to go to a proper men's barber shop but he likes going to a chain salon where they always do an awful job. I've let him know my feelings but he doesn't seem to care about my opinion and continues to go to the same place. He also has a lot of skin tags all over his neck. When we first got married, there was 1 or 2 but now there are at least a dozen. He wears a gold chain necklace that is likely causing them due to friction/chafing. If it was my neck, I'd have them removed because they're multiplying and are unsightly. I've told him how I feel and...



My dad bought me a fidget spinner (I'm a female in her 30's)😮

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 05:31:48 GMT

This may seem trivial but is there anyone who can provide me with some insight regarding how i should perceive this. I'm a woman in her 30's of European background...and...my dad yesterday randomly bought me a....... fidget spinner. It's the thought that counts,yes, but I'm a bit confused why he would think this is something that I would be interested in,maybe when I was 10 I would have been. Does he think I am a child? Do I pretend to like it? Do I risk hurting his feelings and tell him it is more for a child etc? I should mention,my dad is very intelligent and of sound mind so there is nothing like Dementia going on here.

New Research: woman's heart rate coincides with fertile temperature rise

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 03:51:42 GMT

https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.livescience.com/59279-heart-rate-fertility-tracking.html A friend of mine who is trying to achieve pregnancy and is watching all her bodily symptoms has noticed that her Fitbit heart rate charts corresponded to her manual basal temperature rise, spiking at the time of ovulation. And there is some scientific data to back it up. Good news to those who are practicing NFP.



Paycheck

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 03:13:35 GMT

I had a previous about about my previous employer where my boss was a bit crazy, and terminated me because I took a lunch at 12:30pm, rather than the usual 12:00pm. Anyway, I never received my paycheck for the last week, and it's been about 3 weeks now I think, or longer. I didn't care much anymore, because I was just happy I found a job, but than the job I did find turned out my boss was very unprofessional as well, but just in a different way. Anyways, I'm ok and I know I'll be fine finding a better job. But, I do want that paycheck now. If I call the EEOC or wage Union labor (I think that's what it's called), does anyone know how long I would have to wait to get my paycheck?



Struggling with scrupulosity

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 02:48:43 GMT

Recently, I've been scared if the world ends, or what will happen to my soul if I die. With the eclipse happening in America, there will be earthquakes in the midwest which is around where I live. God likes to show signs, but I'm scared that this eclipse will signify the end of the world. I know I am being pretty silly here, but I really want to know if I will go to Heaven or Hell when I die. I went to confession yesterday, my mom helped me get a priest after mass as I missed confession prior. Since then I have had a few intrusive thoughts which is common for me, yet those types of thoughts are ones that pull me into mortal sin in the first place. I'm not sure if I have given into, or dwelled on these impure thoughts, but I am also not sure if I should schedule a private confession with my parish priest on Monday to give me some guidance or not. Maybe I'm just giving into my scrupulosity. :confused: If anyone could provide some help or reassurance of any sort that would be...

(Kindness Challenge) - 'Forgive them' – powerful words from father of Charlottesville victim

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 01:35:35 GMT

---Quote--- After recent violence in Charlottesville, Virginia involving white supremacy groups and counter-protesters, the father of the woman who was killed after the rally spoke out against hatred and offered a different message: forgiveness and love. “I just think about what the Lord said on the cross, 'Forgive them. They don't know what they're doing,'” Mark Heyer said Monday, according to USA Today. “I include myself in that in forgiving the guy who did this,” he said. (http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/forgive-them-powerful-words-from-father-of-charlottesville-victim-55546/) …. While devastated with the loss of his daughter, Mark Heyer hopes that her death will cause bigger waves of change.



Cistercians and Bernardines

He is probably the most famous member of the Order of Cistercians of the Common Observance. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cistercians A group of Sisters in Europe refer to themselves as Bernardines, as well: http://www.bernardine.org

How to distinguish churches generally?

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 00:02:41 GMT

What terms are used to distinguish churches that recognize Saints, sacraments, religious orders, Mass or a "Mass" like celebration vs those that do not?

Wedding Stories

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 23:59:01 GMT

Just got invited to a friend's nuptial mass next month. I'm at the 20-something stage where a lot of my friends are getting married. Dear friends of mine just had a wedding in the byzantine church. That makes me think: what are some crazy memories that you have from catholic weddings? Mishaps, misadventures, and fond remembrances? This will probably end up being a fond remembrance but at my friend's byzantine crowning ceremony the priest was a very no-nonsense eastern european dude. He straight up told my friend "obey your husband" and "Marriage is not like army. No giving orders" which got quite a laugh because everyone (the priest included) knew of the bride's no-nonsense take charge personality and that occasionally she could be perceived as being a bit bossy. The potluck reception that followed ended up with one of my dishes (a pyrex) accidentally exploding all over the kitchen. This wedding will probably be more formal/sedate if it's the monsignor of the latin parish...
