    Matt Walsh, March 2013

    Well, I don’t claim to be a biographer of the guy. I know a little about him, and I’ll continue to learn from legitimate sources as the days go by. What I know is this: He’s the first non-European pope in over 1300 years. He’s a humble and kind man. His humility is authentic. Much like Benedict, he was not at all eager to be given this position. He does not worship himself or think himself entitled to his new status. I know that I watched him bow his head in front of the crowd and ask for their blessing. I know he, as an archbishop, chose to take a bus to work. He chose to live in a small apartment without maids, cooks, or servants. When he went to Rome to be ordained a Cardinal, he asked his flock in his country not to come and to instead give their travel money to the poor. He is orthodox and “conservative” on “social issues”. In other words, he’s not going to abandon the moral teachings of Christianity just because a bunch of people on Twitter think he should. He’s known for being very compassionate towards the poor. He’s known to be someone who lives the words of Corinthians 13. I’m aware of one anecdote I read a few years ago about a visit he made to a hospital. While there, he got on his knees, kissed and washed the feet of 12 AIDS patients. He takes strong, unwavering positions and reinforces them with love and humility. He leads by example.

    God Bless You

    “How to Explain Conservatism to Your Squishy Liberal Friends: Individualism ‘R’ Us”, P.J. O’Rourke

    The individual is the wellspring of conservatism. The purpose of conservative politics is to defend the liberty of the individual and, lest individualism run riot, insist upon individual responsibility.

    The great religions (and conservatives are known for approving of God) teach salvation as an individual matter. There are no group discounts in the Ten Commandments, Christ was not a committee, and Allah does not welcome believers into Paradise saying, “You weren’t much good yourself, but you were standing near some good people.” That we are individuals, unique, disparate and willful, is something we understand instinctively from an early age. No child ever wrote to Santa: “Bring me, and a bunch of kids I’ve never met, a pony, and we’ll share.”

    A GREAT read

    I passed up a huge buck because all I had was a neck shot, I didn’t want that animal to suffer because of a badly placed shot, I didn’t take the shot. And hunting black bear in New Brunswick, I watched a big sow with 3 cubs for about 2 hours on two consecutive days. The cubs wouldn’t have survived the winter without their mother. There’s a difference between hunters and killers.

    I should have also told you that they grow new antlers every year…FYI

    I disagree. Overpopulation leads to a long, slow, agonizing death. I’ve posted this before but as you can see, when hunting was banned in Arizona, 60,000 deer suffered that agonizing death.

    The size of a deer antler’s are genetically determined but even if a buck has great genes, their antler’s won’t grow to their potential unless the deer is eating well.

    We hunters sometimes give the anti-hunters all the ammunition they need to turn public opinion against hunting. How many hunters strap their deer to the roof of their car and then drive around the neighborhood making sure everyone sees their harvest. Well the kids in that neighborhood think you did shoot Rudolf. Look at it this way…lets say 20% of the population hunts and at the other extreme, 20% are actively trying to ban hunting. That leaves a big percentage in the middle who can be swayed either way. It’s up to us hunters to police ourselves! Im not saying this young hunter did anything wrong, I would have shot too, I just saw an opportunity to address your Rudolf statement because sometimes the kids think it’s true.

    That’s a great point Mom…for those to blind to see, I’ll quote Pope Francis.

    ” We have sown and we continued to sow, patiently and perseveringly, in the certainty that it is the Lord who gives growth to what we have sown.”

    We have just heard one of the most famous phrases in the entire Gospel: “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s” (Mt 22:21).

    And every Catholic who attended Mass today read and or heard that exact Gospel Reading.

    The Pharisees went off
    and plotted how they might entrap Jesus in speech.
    They sent their disciples to him, with the Herodians, saying,
    “Teacher, we know that you are a truthful man
    and that you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth.
    And you are not concerned with anyone’s opinion,
    for you do not regard a person’s status.
    Tell us, then, what is your opinion:
    Is it lawful to pay the census tax to Caesar or not?”
    Knowing their malice, Jesus said,
    “Why are you testing me, you hypocrites?
    Show me the coin that pays the census tax.”
    Then they handed him the Roman coin.
    He said to them, “Whose image is this and whose inscription?”
    They replied, “Caesar’s.”
    At that he said to them,
    “Then repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar
    and to God what belongs to God.”

    They were doing the same things the angels and the saints in glory were doing. When Jesus Christ overcomes Satan in Revelation, it isn’t simply at the end of time, it’s in the middle of the liturgy of the Lamb, the Lamb’s supper. The liturgy of the Mass and the Apocalypse are a perfect match. In the first part of the Mass we have the Confiteor, the confession. In the 7 letters to the 7 churches in Asia Minor we have Christ calling his people to repent just as we are repenting in the opening scene of the Eucharistic Liturgy as well. You also have Christ promising the hidden manna, what we Catholics know as the Holy Eucharist. So you keep your eyes on the anti christ or the Millennium or the mark of the beast and we’ll go to heaven every time we celebrate Mass!”

    Yeah…who knew?

    “In the Apocalypse, Jesus is called the Lamb of God 28 times in 22 chapters. The only other place we hear Lamb of God in the NT is in John’s gospel and there it’s only referred to twice in the opening chapter. The Lamb of God is the title for Jesus. The Liturgy of the Catholic Mass is found on just about every single page of the Apocalypse from the opening paragraph of the Apocalypse where Jesus Christ appears in a white robe with a golden girdle, standing amid seven golden lampstands. He was wearing the uniform of the High Priest, standing next to the Menorah, which stood by the alter of sacrifice in the Jerusalem Temple. In chapters 1, 2, and 3 you find images of Liturgical furniture, of Liturgical functions, there were incense, songs, prayers, trumpets, there was a book that was opened after 7 seals were broken. There were chalice’s that were mixed and poured but you would have to know the Catholic Mass to understand these images. These things are present on every single page of the Apocalypse in every chapter. The common theme that runs through the beginning to the end of Revelation is this heavenly liturgy that Jesus revealed to John on the Island of Patmos when he ordered him to write it down, take it back and give it to the churches in Asia Minor so that when they celebrated the liturgy they would know where they were. They were in Heaven!

    This topic was discussed at a Bowhunter Education Course I took a few years ago.

    “Before 1905, the deer on the Kaibab Plateau were estimated to number about 4000. The average carrying capacity of the range was then estimated to be about 30,000 deer. On November 28th, 1906, President Theodore Roosevelt created the Grand Canyon National Game Preserve to protect the “finest deer herd in America.”

    By 1923, the deer were reported to be on the verge of starvation and the range conditions were described as “deplorable.”

    The Kaibab Deer Investigating Committee recommended that all livestock not owned by local residents be removed immediately from the range and that the number of deer be cut in half as quickly as possible. Hunting was reopened, and during the fall of 1924, 675 deer were killed by hunters. However, these deer represented only one-tenth the number of deer that had been born that spring. Over the next two winters, it is estimated that 60,000 deer starved to death.

    snooop1e says, “When we consider the fact that St Ignatius was believed to be the student of St John the Apostle (the Apostle that Jesus loved) that is pretty compelling.”

    I think if more people would read what the Church Fathers wrote, they’d stop condemning the Catholic Church. Here’s what the Apostle John’s friend, Saint Ignatius of Antioch, wrote in his letter to the Smyrneans 8

    “See that you all follow the Bishop, as Christ does the Father, and the presbyterium as you would the apostles; and reverence the deacons, as a command of God. Let no one do anything connected with the Church without the Bishop. Let that be considered a certain [βεβαια, "valid"] eucharist which is under the leadership of the Bishop, or one to whom he has entrusted it. Wherever the Bishop appears, there let the multitude of the people be; just as where Christ Jesus is, there is the catholic church [ἡ καθολικὴ ἐκκλησία]. It is not permitted with the Bishop either to baptize or to celebrate an agape; but whatever he shall approve of, that is well-pleasing alos to God, so that everything that is done may be assured and certain [βέβαιον].

    During an interview with the media after his release, he was asked what his secret strength had been that kept him alive and sane. His answer was always, “The Eucharist.” He explained how when he was arrested, he had to leave immediately, empty-handed. The following day he was allowed to write to his faithful to ask for some personal effects. He wrote: “Please send me a little wine as medicine for my stomach pain.” They understood right away. A few days later, the guards handed him a small container addressed to him, and labeled “Medicine for stomach aliments.” He also received another small container containing small pieces of Holy Host.

    With three drops of wine and a drop of water in the palm of his hand, he would celebrate Mass. “Each time I celebrated Mass, I had the opportunity to extend my hands and nail myself to the cross with Jesus, to drink with Him the bitter chalice” (Testimony of Hope). And those were the most beautiful Masses of his life.

    God Bless you too

    If we’re sons and daughters of God, it’s because we’ve married into the family.

    Have you ever wondered why the Bible begins and ends with a wedding – Adam and Eve’s in the garden and the marriage supper of the Lamb (compare Genesis 2:23-24 and Revelation 19:9; 21:9; 22:17)?

    Throughout the Bible, marriage is the symbol of the covenant relationship God desires with His chosen people. He is the Groom, humanity His beloved and sought-after bride.

    When Israel breaks the covenant she is compared to an unfaithful spouse (see Jeremiah 2:20-36; 3:1-13). But God promises to take her back, to “espouse” her to Him forever in an everlasting covenant (see Hosea 2:18-22).

    His first public “sign” was at a wedding feast.

    Jesus is the divine Bridegroom (see John 3:29), calling us to His royal wedding feast (see Matthew 22:1-14). By His New Covenant, He will become “one flesh” with all humanity in the Church (see Ephesians 5:21-33). By our Baptism, each of us has been betrothed to Christ as a bride to a Husband (see 2 Corinthians 11:2).

    New Testament passages dealing with homosexuality

    Rom. 1:26–27 “For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error”

    1 Cor. 6:9–10 “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither the immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor sexual perverts, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God”

    1 Tim. 1:8–10 “Now we know that the law is good, if any one uses it lawfully, understanding this, that the law is not laid down for the just but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, immoral persons, sodomites, kidnappers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine”
