Praying the Novena with the Dominican Sisters of Nashville

Nothing tells your children that you believe in the power of prayer more than praying the rosary with them. And nothing tells them how powerful you think prayer is than praying a novena and the rosary every evening after dinner. [Read more...]

The HHS Mandate and the Lord of the Rings

I know. This is a weird title for a post. What does the Lord of the Rings trilogy have to do with the HHS Mandate? Maybe nothing, or maybe everything. Bear with me for a moment and I’ll try to explain.

A few months back, I wrote a little post that I titled Because All of the Big Questions Have Been Answered. Therein, I stated simply that “what is left to do, and one which takes a lifetime to perfect, is the implementation of the answers.” [Read more...]

Mail Call! Items From My “In” Basket For Your Consideration

Occasionally, folks send me e-mails with tidbits and requests that I share with readers. It’s all part of following the Welborn Protocol, so here are a couple from today.

First up, several regarding the follow-on petition that is climbing the altimeter over at the White House. I mentioned it the other day, and the first of these notes is from yesterday evening. The link for this petition is right over there. ==>> [Read more...]

A Message to the Administration from the Communion of Saints on the HHS Mandate

What the Obama Administration doesn’t seem to understand is a truth that needs only to be uttered in the calmest and softest of whispers.  The Church will never support the HHS Mandate, because the Church can never knowingly commit a sin.

Though She is chock full of sinners (100% certified, grade-A sinners, by the way), with low-end mucky-mucks like me (surely one of the greatest of them) spilling over her gunwales, She herself is supernaturally free from the stain of sin. And that’s not something that Joe Six-Pack just made up to make himself feel better, either. It’s a supernatural truth that needs no banging of gongs or clashing of cymbals to precede it.

Because My Pope Speaks Truths Like This

Just recently, back on January 19, 2012 during his address to the bishops of Washington D.C.  and environs, during their ad limina visit to the See of St. Peter, my Pope said this. At the time, the HHS Mandate had already been announced and set in motion. [Read more...]

Molecular Biologist Gets Upset About the HHS Mandate, Writes the President

Oh, the irony of the background...

True story. The Catholic Science Geek responds to the Administration’s “Accommodation” *cough* statement with “My First Scathing Letter to the White House.” Bravo Zulu. I hope more people take the initiative to do the same. Especially when they understand molecular biology, not to mention 9th grade biology.

Why the Constitution Means A Lot To Me

Dr. Beckwith allows that this quote contained therein, choked him up,

“Our parents and grandparents did not come to these shores to help build America’s cities and towns, its infrastructure and institutions, its enterprise and culture, only to have their posterity stripped of their God given rights. All that has been built up over so many years in our Catholic institutions should not be taken away by the stroke of an administrator’s pen.” [Read more...]

As the Bishops Fight On, A Reader Writes Another HHS Mandate Petition

And kindly asks for your support.

Hi Frank,
I largely borrowed your wording from your original petition regarding the HHS Mandate. The one you wrote was taken down since the Administration “responded” to it. I’d appreciate your help in getting this one out again.

Thank you!

Give her a hand, folks. Sic semper tyrannis.

Besides, most of you have accounts at the White House already. And don’t forget to sign the other petitions out there too. Links to them are here.

BZ, Theresa

FYI, The HHS Mandate Petition Skunked the Competition UPDATED

And here’s why: meet the real FoC petition, y’all. Because although the NARAL petition was indeed a Ferrari like the one we knew was behind us, the petition I was driving was good ol’ American Iron of the type that whipped the Ferraris at LeMans four consecutive times. Full of justice, freedom from oppression, and yearning for the good, the true, and the beautiful. Oh, and endowed with a very broad torque band. [Read more...]

Dear President Obama, Go.Pound.Sand.

Deacon Greg Kandra shares the New York Times story where someone in the Administration admitted, “we were getting killed.” Any day now, we’ll probably get the shocking (not!) news that Kathleen Sebelius has decided to “resign from HHS in order to persue other interests.” That would not surprise me at all.

But this did, and in a good way. From the folks over at Fox News, “The following is a statement ed. on Notre Dame letterhead) signed by more than three dozen religious scholars and leaders on the Obama administration’s announcement regarding its contraceptive coverage policy.” Click on it immediately and be amazed.

Huzzah! Resist the tyrant.
