Every Picture Tells a Story Don't It

Down in Rome I wasn't getting enough
of the things that keeps a young man alive
My body stunk but I kept my funk
at a time when I was right out of luck
Getting desperate indeed I was
Looking like a tourist attraction
Oh my dear I better get out of here
'for the Vatican don't give no sanction
I wasn't ready for that, no no

Meanwhile, some poor nun experiences
the Pope Francis Factor

The Rev. Tim Reid, pastor of St. Ann Catholic Church, sent an email lauding the nun, saying “she represented well the Catholic positions on marriage, sex, same-sex attraction and proper gender roles … The Church has already lost too many generations of Catholic schools students to … a very muddled and watered-down faith.”

The petition, which has drawn more than 2,000 supporters, listed 10 objections to her remarks, including this: “We resent the fact that a schoolwide assembly became a stage to blast the issue of homosexuality after Pope Francis said in an interview this past fall that ‘we can not insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods.’ We are angry that someone decided they knew better than our Holy Father and invited (this) speaker.”

Some students told their parents that a few teachers left the assembly in tears.
 (Cry Carol a river!)

In addition, parents called for a letter-writing campaign, sending out emails that listed the addresses of the Diocese of Charlotte, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, even the pope in the Vatican.

Shelley Earnhardt, who is divorced and who sent one of the emails, wrote that “in my home, there was outrage, embarrassment, sadness, disbelief, and further reason for my 16-year-old to move as far away from her religion as possible and as soon as she can.”

Oh no, not that!!!

Please stay!

We will all stop teaching Catholics their religion so you do not get the vapors!!

Pope Francis good; Nuns and priests and parents who teach Church teaching bad!

what I don't get is why do these people stay in a church in which the disagree with, I mean there's plenty of watered down protestant churches all over the place. Whats the point in ruining our church....

Steve, it's the devil.

Our Lady of LaSallette NEVER said that Rome would lose faith and the Church would become the seat of the AntiChrist.

If you do your diligence, you will find that Steve is wrong about that.
(I am surprised to read he has not done his diligence and posts trash )

Christ assured that His Church will remain until He returns. The idea that Our Blessed Mother would contradict him should tell you that something is askew with this quote. This misrepresentation is wide-spread on whackadoodle sites, but dig into the apparition it self and you will find it is bs.

The idea that you would think the Pope is the antiChrist is disconcerting. He is clearly a faithful man who also feels the increased presence of the devil in the world and is desperate to go out and gather the lost sheep and bring them into the fold.

For all of your fears about the devil pulling people off of the reservation, the irony is, you in his wagon and he is taking you along on the ride.

Stick with Christ's One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church and the Sacraments.

On the fake LaSalette messages:

I am having my daughter's baby shower today and don't have time to do much diligence and post. If you put the quote into google, it comes up on all of the whackadoogle sites.

Nothing legitimate. That is your first clue.

Google legitimate Catholic sites have the complete and authentic message.

particulars Aessiva"This will give some additional perspective. From one of the comments on the article: As the author of the original email that seems to have sparked this dialogue, I am here to say that the original and actual issues have not only been lost, but were first misconstrued and now have been totally replaced by another agenda. Our debate is NOT about Catholic teaching - period. The talk Sister gave was NOT consistent with the videos you can access online. Some of her points were the same as what you can see there and were indeed valid teachings of the Catholic church, with which we CCHS parents support, accept and fully expect from our Catholic educators. What we do NOT accept are her additional comments, purported as fact, regarding gender generalization and the biology of the brain, the souls of men and women, single and divorced parents, and homosexuals. These you CANNOT ACCESS ONLINE. These comments were preposterous, unfounded, hurtful, not compassionate, not forgiving, inaccurate and, most to the point, NOT CATHOLIC."

This nun should have gone out into the audience and whacked those fools on the knuckles with a heavy ruler!

Anonymous, according to faithful priests, her comments were in line with Church teaching.

Divorced and remarried parents (without annulment) are committing adultery every time they have sexual relations with their spouse. The marriage itself is based upon adultery as it is proscribed in Catholic teaching.

It is one of the hardest things to accept for most, but it is truth.

Discrediting with ambiguous allegations about something she supposedly said, without substantiating or even telling us her remarks is not very credible. We would be happy to discuss what you think she said.
