Recently I watched the news report of some major problems with the mail in voting ballots and how the upcoming election may be shaped by lawyers. Joe Biden has already signaled he has hundreds of lawyers in the waiting to challenge each ballot that would possibly be invalid. So there is a greater chance of litigation and challenges to mail in voting. It could literally takes months to get a final outcome. The Democrats seeks to extend mail ballot deadlines for the purpose to ensure they can get what ever catch up votes to surpass any vote count losses.
The Republicans want mail ballot drop boxes to be banned so that only registered voters are legally valid and counted. They also want to force counties to clean their voter rolls and remove people's registrations that are no longer valid. The Republicans want only registered voters to count while Democrats want illegals to be counted as well.

The Catholic Church has for 2,000 years have taught that the soul will go to one of three places immediately after death.
The saved will go to Heaven or Purgatory, the damned will go to hell. Purgatory is not an eternal state so the soul will go to Heaven eventually due to the grace and mercy of God. When the trumpet of God sounds on that great and glorious day, the dead in Christ will rise, just like Matthew 27:51-54:
"And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split. The tombs also were opened. And many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised, and coming out of the tombs after his resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many. When the centurion and those who were with him, keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and what took place, they were filled with awe and said, “Truly this was the Son of God!”
The General Judgment will be far more a complete and dramatic scale, a...
Wow, with different bishops in the U.S. not wanting to test the possibility of a Miracle, which is beyond me because we have so many that don't believe, and it could be a increase of faith for many. The one today is such a special joy to me, as we have used Father Chris Alar in the United States in different events for the Eucharist and Marian Conferences in Missouri. What a blessing. Please pray and support the Marians of the Immaculate Conception Fathers at Stockbridge, Mass. The National Shrine of the Divine Mercy and then share this with those you love.
On June 7, the Church celebrates Corpus Christi Sunday. Exactly one year ago from that day (liturgically speaking), our present "Fr. Joseph, MIC" Fr. Chris Alar, MIC, had an unusually clear glimpse of Jesus' Real Presence in the Eucharist:
... On Corpus Christi Sunday, an incident occurred that helped set the tone for Fr. Chris' trip and his priestly ministry.
Know this, my dear brothers: everyone should be quick to hear,* slow to speak, slow to wrath, for the wrath of a man does not accomplish the righteousness of God. Therefore, put away all filth and evil excess and humbly welcome the word that has been planted in you and is able to save your souls. Be doers of the word and not hearers only, deluding yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his own face in a mirror. He sees himself, then goes off and promptly forgets what he looked like. But the one who peers into the perfect law* of freedom and perseveres, and is not a hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, such a one shall be blessed in what he does.
This is the basis of Benjamin Franklin, "Where Liberty Dwells There Is My Country". The Law of (Liberty), the perfect law of freedom and perseveres...

Alfred Hitchcock, a well known movie producer, once stated that subliminal technique were more important in getting a point across than even the plot itself in a movie. We have seen many examples of this in movies and music with the intent of selling merchandise and getting attention for particular agendas.
An example of how successful these technique can be, in 1957 at Fort Lee New Jersey, moviegoers watching movies were not aware that inserted in these movies were subliminal messages that the naked eye would not consciously see. James Vicary, a public advertising representative coined the term "subliminal advertising" placed a tachistoscope in the projection booth and throughout the playing of the movie, he flashed messages on the screen suggesting "Drink Coca-Cola" and "Hungry? Eat Popcorn" What they found was when they did this, the Coca-Cola sales rose nearly 60% and Popcorn sales rose almost 20%.
Businesses were known to place subliminal messages in the background music pl...
James along with his Brother John are identified by St. Mark as the sons of Zebedee, but with the added surname "Boanerges" that is, "sons of thunder. Mark 3:17
What does this mean? Is this a great honor being placed on Father Zebedee?
Jesus knew the Apostles very core and he gave James and John the nickname of "thunder" because of their disposition.
Consider Luke 9:54, "When the days drew near for him to be received up, he set his face to go to Jerusalem. And he sent messengers ahead of him, who went and entered a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him; but the people would not receive him, because his face was set toward Jerusalem. And when his disciples James and John saw it, they said, "Lord, do you want us to bid fire come down from heaven and consume them?" Luke 9:51-54
In this case, Jesus did not compliment their thought, but maintained His purpose of going to other villages on their way to Jerusalem.
A lot of the time when the New Testament reports on an even...
It has long been believed (November 17-18 1956 at the Poland's Embassy in Moscow) Russian President Nikita Khrushchev claimed, “We will take America without firing a shot." "We will bury you" that added much to the Cold War chess game. Russia and the United States since World War II have been on opposite sides from the Arms Race to Vietnam to the Hillary Clinton Presidential Campaign.
America has always been center right, based on the Constitution of the United States have always defended freedom of Religion, freedom of speech, freedom to congregate. Yet, something has long been in the works to erode all our freedoms.
With President Donald Trump and Joe Biden running against each other, the media, the Left-wing Democrats have been pushing the threat of Communism, Marxism, and Socialism. This major threat is not coming from Russia, but more likely China. I was listening to the radio this week when I heard that China was forcing churches to take down their crucifixes,...
On the evening of 21 July 2020, Dr. Gregory Thompson was co-hosting a show describing a Eucharistic Miracle that took place in India 2001. This Miracle focused on the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, many of the faithful witnessed the image of Jesus face present in the Monstrance during Eucharistic Adoration. A picture was able to capture the image of Jesus that continues this very day.
In the discussion that ensued, Anne of Lorado Texas described an occurrence that had taken place at a local hospital where a Eucharistic Miracle happened in the hospital chapel. I asked Anne if she could find information on this if it were possible and here is the information provided by Ana Marie:
"This story is what happened to me about 10 yrs ago during a Eucharistic Miracle. I was at work listening to a local Catholic radio station (KHOY FM 88.1) and they were announcing that there is a Eucharistic Miracle that is happening at the Laredo Mercy Hospital chapel.
This Eucharistic miracle was verified recently, on May 5, 2001 in Trivandrum, India. In the Host there appeared the likeness of a man similar to that of Christ crowned with thorns. His Beatitude Cyril Mar Baselice, Archbishop of the diocese of Trivandrum, wrote regarding this prodigy: “[…] For us believers what we have seen is something that we have always believed […]. If our Lord is speaking to us by giving us this sign, it certainly needs a response from us”. The monstrance containing the miraculous Host is to this day kept in the church.
The Rev. Fr. Johnson Karnoor, pastor of the church where the Eucharistic miracle took place, recounts in his deposition: “On April 28, 2001, in the parish church of St. Mary of Chirattakonam, we began the Novena to St. Jude Thaddeus as we did every year. At 8:49am, I exposed the Most Holy Sacrament in the monstrance for public adoration. After a few moments I saw what appeared to be three dots in the Holy Eucharist. I then stopped praying and began...
1. President Trump has brought the United States to energy independence, in fact, the United States has become the leading export of Fossil fluids. During the Trump Presidency, clean air, water, the environment has greatly improved.
Joe Biden promises to invest in the "Green New Deal" calling for "Trillions' of dollars doing away with Fossil Fluids. This is expected to cost as high as 94 Trillion Dollars breaking America. From doing away with airplanes and cows to outlawing fracking and off shore drilling, this would bring us back into the stone age.
2. President Trump fostered in the greatest economic boom in history through deregulation and lowering of taxes. Many jobs came back from all over the world as opportunities began from major industries.
Joe Biden promises to turn back the Trump tax cuts and place regulations that will bring back the slow rate GDP of the Obama/Biden years which averaged under .2%.
3. President Trump within less than one term has clos...
