Faith: Strengthen The Good

REMEMBERING 9/11

Photo credit unknown. Found standing amidst the remains of the fallen World Trade Center two days after the devastation on September 11, 2001 were these cross beams from one of the towers. The remarkable shape of these preserved beams did not go, nor has gone, unappreciated or undervalued. In a remarkably depraved state of mind, […]

“GO CONFIDENTLY IN THE DIRECTION OF YOUR FUTURE – GOD IS THERE.”

Having a friend who is in a Catholic religious order proves rewarding in more ways than one but it’s especially great to receive newsletters from such a friend, which I do. The latest newsy-email I received inspired me and quite dramatically; I feel a need both personally and publicly — privately and professionally, private issues […]

MERRY CHRISTMAS 2012

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder — and Christmas merriment is in the heart of the merry. The times are challenging for many of us yet this day assures us that the tough stuff is passing and there’s much more good “up there” with faith. Lights on a tree are a good illustration […]

HAPPY THANKSGIVING 2012

It’s a day for giving thanks for all that we are grateful for. Despite one’s circumstances, there is always something to be thankful for. I sometimes wonder if but what feeling gratitude is too simple a concept such that it discourages the more hardened among us from experiencing it. But even the most hardened individuals […]

HEROES, THE QUIET ONES

From website, “A.Word.A.Day,” is this “THOUGHT FOR THE DAY“: In our world of big names, curiously, our true heroes tend to be anonymous. In this life of illusion and quasi-illusion, the person of solid virtues who can be admired for something more substantial than his well-knownness often proves to be the unsung hero: the teacher, […]

VETERANS DAY 2012

Our national and individual appreciation, value of and gratitude to our veterans should never be refused them: our veterans have proven their willingness to protect our nation and to do so in situations and conditions that many of them never disclose out of consideration for the rest of us. We should also never exclude the […]

ENOUGH WITH THE REST THING

Well, it’s done. Rest thing is over. It ended about a week ago but then hardware issues arrived. Otherwise, I’d have made this huge announcement a week ago but enough with that tangent, too. Hardware and rest both resolved, I’m rested and the hardware is new. So enough with the evasions to commenting about the […]

“TEST OF FIRE: ELECTION 2012”

From this video: Will you vote the values that will stand the test of fire? Some things are more important than high gas prices or a faltering economy. They are life, marriage and freedom. This November, Catholics must stand up and protect their sacred rights and duties. From Gateway Pundit, who I thank greatly for […]

JOHN WAYNE’S REMARKS ON LIBERALS

Caution, salty words – but it’s John Wayne so it’s to be expected: prophetic to our times, accurate to his, John Wayne remarks about Liberals, how the “press” (today that’s “media”) propagated/propagates or assists the Liberal distortion of information, or, rather, dispenses Leftwing propaganda and calls it facts (and lends credibility to falsehoods by media’s […]

R.I.P. ANDREW BREITBART, TOUCHSTONE, HERO, IRREPRESSIBLY GOOD GUY

From the general public come these comments by me, someone whose only personal contact with endearing Conservative and media-wonderkind Andrew Breitbart was a very brief telephone call I made to him years ago which he responded to. We simply exchanged telephone numbers because he was in hyper-drive when my call arrived — from what I’ve […]
