    Words matter! Disputed territories…yeah, occupied…NO! Please explain to me how a country can occupy territory that it won in a defensive war?

    I’ve always remembered fondly these words that Charles Krauthammer wrote in The Weekly Standard, May 11, 1998

    “Israel is the very embodiment of Jewish continuity: It is the only nation on earth that inhabits the same land, bears the same name, speaks the same language, and worships the same God that it did 3,000 years ago. You dig the soil and you find pottery from Davidic times, coins from Bar Kokhba, and 2,000-year-old scrolls written in a script remarkably like the one that today advertises ice cream at the corner candy store.”

    Then the second problem, that of emptiness is resolved in the second three days because in day number four we see God creating the sun , moon and stars, the greater light to rule the day, the lesser light to rule the night so what God created on day four corresponds to what was created on day one, there’s overlap. Likewise on day five, we see the birds and the fish are created to fill the skies and to fill the seas. So what was created on day five corresponds to what was created on day number two. Then day number six, God creates the beasts of the field and then man as well. That corresponds to what was made on the third day, the land and vegetation. So in the first three days, God has established a form, three realms and then on days four, five and six, he creates the rulers over each of those respective realms. He has taken care of the twofold problem of the earth being without form and it’s emptiness. The text of Genesis 1 provides us a framework for understanding the order and design and purpose of God’s creation.

    Dr Scott Hahn discusses Genesis

    “What is the real purpose behind the creation account and how can we relate that to the new covenant that we are called upon to live today? The contextual meaning of Genesis is really rooted in a few phrases that we find in the opening versus. In the beginning God created the Heaven and Earth. The Earth was without form and void. When he creates the Heavens and Earth, the Heavens are complete in a certain sense but the Earth was without form and void. The Hebrew expression was tohu waw bohu, literally meaning, without form and without inhabitants. In other words, there’s no structure and there are no beings to fill it. This sets the stage for the rest of the creation account in the next six days. Think of the next six days as two series of three days each. Days one, two and three resolve the first problem of tohu, without form. And the second three days, four, five and six resolve the second problem of waw bohu, or emptiness. Day one, God creates the day and the night. Second day, he creates the sky and the sea. The third day he creates the land and vegetation. He has just provided the threefold form of earthly life. Day and night is time, sky and sea is space, land and vegetation introduces life. Time, space and life then provide the threefold form in which the earth will be experienced.

    I predict that Ayers and Dohrn will go on the lam once again once a conservative US Attorney General is appointed and begins seeking justice for Sgt Brian V. McDonnell. There is no statute of limitations for murder.

    “Obey” is an Andre the Giant propaganda campaign started by the same guy who made Obama’s Hope and Change poster, Shepard Fairy. He’s nothing more than a criminal who spray paints graffiti on other people’s property, known as “Tagging.”

    Please see the documented proof that Pope Pius XII saved over 860,000 Jews during WW2. Enough with the propaganda. Here’s the proof, are you willing to hear it?

    Our family is made up of every race. We span the whole globe with sinners and saints. With God’s grace, we started hospitals to care for the sick. We are the largest charitable organization on the planet and bring relief to those in need. We educate more children than any other scholarly or religious institution. We developed the scientific method and founded the college system. We defend the dignity of human life, uphold marriage and family. Cities are named after our revered saints who navigated the sacred path before us, guided by the Holy Spirit. We compiled the Holy Bible. We are transformed by Sacred Scripture, and a tradition that has guided us for 2,000 years. There are 1 billion in our family. Through the Sacraments and fullness of our faith we have prayed for you and our world. Through the Holy Father, we are led through an unbroken tradition of leaders in this confused and hurting world. Despite chaos, hardship and pain, our faith helps us remain true and strong in love for all creation.

    We are the Catholic Church.

    Those who want to turn John’s Revelation into a play-by-play of the end-times have missed the meaning of the book. The book is about God’s victory over the evil of Rome and Jerusalem and the establishment of His earthly Kingdom and the establishment of that as the model or type of his ultimate victory over Satan. It all plays out very dramatically, from the dispatch of the four horsemen to the New Jerusalem, coming down from heaven

    The message of the Book of Revelation is an expansion of the message of the Gospels. Jesus came to earth and his own people rejected him (John 1:11), so He took their authority from them and gave it to the Church He built on Peter (Matthew 21:43, 16:18).

    He threw down the great city that betrayed him and played the whore (Rev 11:8. 17:18, 18:10) and established the Catholic church as a Kingdom of Priests (Rev 5:10, 14:4) and the New Jerusalem (Revelation 21:2) with the old Jerusalem never to be heard from again (18:16-24).

    All of this provides the template for the ultimate triumph of God over Satan, which doesn’t occur until Revelation 20:3.

    Chapter 6:4 you read that it was the time of the Passover that Jesus was giving this bread of life discourse. Now here he is discussing how he’s the living bread, how he’s the true manna that comes down from heaven. He is linking himself in the most essential way to the Passover. Back in chapter 1 John the Baptist says twice behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. So one of John’s principle emphasis is Jesus is the lamb, the Passover sacrifice. Back in the OT, back in Egypt when Israel was in bondage and the tenth plague was about to descend, the law was clear. God stipulated through Moses, you’re going to have to take an unblemished male lamb, slaughter him, sprinkle his blood on your doorpost, roast that lamb and eat that lamb. Now suppose a family did all that but didn’t eat the lamb, what would have happened to that family? They would have woken up the next day and found their first born son dead. It wasn’t enough to kill the lamb they had to eat the sacrificial lamb. And if Jesus Christ is coming to perfect the OT types which he does, then he really is the Passover lamb. He is slain, his blood is sprinkled but if he is the sacrificial lamb of the new covenant Passover, it isn’t enough for the lamb to die, it isn’t enough for his blood to be shed, we have to eat the lamb. We have to consume sacrifice for communion to be reached.

    They say you must take it literally here when it’s only said once but what happens when they hear it four times? They ignore it or try to make it have a figurative meaning when it doesn’t seem possible under closer scrutiny. That’s why in verse 60 we read many of the disciples saying, this is a hard saying, who can listen to it? They’re not saying, who can understand it, they’re saying who can even bear hearing it? But Jesus knowing his disciples murmured at it, said to them, do you take offense to this? Of course he knows they do. And knowing that, once again he could have explained it was symbolic, but he goes on to talk about the son of man ascending where he was before and the Holy Spirit giving life. Ultimately, it’s only when Jesus Christ ascends and gives us the Holy Spirit that this flesh and blood will be made available to us in a transforming manner. Not surprisingly we read in 66, many of his disciples drew back and no longer went about with him. Jesus turns to the twelve and says do you also want to turn away? Jesus will not compromise any truth, especially the truth of the gift of the Holy Eucharist. Peter answered, Lord to whom shall we go?

    For those Jewish hearer’s to listen to those words in John 6:51-58, they would certainly require some sort of offense being taken, that is a shocking statement. So the Jews disputed among themselves saying, how can this man give us his flesh to eat? That’s barbaric, that’s contrary to the law. So what does Jesus say to them, truly, truly, I say to you, this is only a figure of speech? I only meant it metaphorically. Now that would have been a very simple thing for him to do as a teacher, if he says the bread which I give to the world is my flesh, if all he meant was figurative, it would have been simple to say so, and it would have been morally incumbent, it would have been an obligation for him to clarify the point. But what does he do? Instead, he reiterates that offensive assertion not once, not twice but four times he says to them, truly, truly I say to you unless you eat the flesh of the son of man and drink his blood you have no life in you. And in the next verse he says, he who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life and I will raise him up on the last day. And a third time in the next verse, for my flesh is food indeed and my blood is drink indeed. And finally, number four, he who eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me and I in him. Now four times he says, eat my flesh and drink my blood. How many times have you heard preachers say you must be born again? But those same preachers never say you must eat his flesh and drink his blood.

    Should the Spirit move you, please pray with me for Atheists and Agnostics all over the world.

    O God, the everlasting Creator of all things, remember that the souls of unbelievers were made by Thee and formed in Thine own image and likeness. Remember that Jesus, Thy Son, endured a most bitter death for their salvation.

    Permit not, I beseech Thee, O Lord, that Thy Son should be any longer despised by unbelievers, but do Thou graciously accept the prayers of holy men and of the Church, the Spouse of Thy most holy Son, and be mindful of Thy mercy.

    Forget their idolatry and unbelief, and grant that they too may some day know Him whom Thou hast sent, even the Lord Jesus Christ, who is our Salvation, our Life and Resurrection, by whom we have been saved and delivered, to whom be glory for endless ages.

    On the contrary! Check out the Library of Congress’s Exhibition, ” Religion and the Founding of the American Republic”

    “This exhibition demonstrates that many of the colonies that in 1776 became the United States of America were settled by men and women of deep religious convictions who in the seventeenth century crossed the Atlantic Ocean to practice their faith freely. That the religious intensity of the original settlers would diminish to some extent over time was perhaps to be expected, but new waves of eighteenth century immigrants brought their own religious fervor across the Atlantic and the nation’s first major religious revival in the middle of the eighteenth century injected new vigor into American religion. The result was that a religious people rose in rebellion against Great Britain in 1776, and that most American statesmen, when they began to form new governments at the state and national levels, shared the convictions of most of their constituents that religion was, to quote Alexis de Tocqueville’s observation, indispensable to the maintenance of republican institutions. The efforts of the Founders of the American nation to define the role of religious faith in public life and the degree to which it could be supported by public officials that was not inconsistent with the revolutionary imperatives of the equality and freedom of all citizens is the central question which this exhibition explores.”
