A CATHOLIC VIEW OF CULTURE, POLITICS, LITERATURE AND DEVOTION.
Golly gee, BC - I am shocked that there appears to be a BIG difference in the story the church tells and the Associated Press stories. Surprise!Honestly, I don't trust the media most of the time; HOW COULD I POSSIBLY TRUST THEM W/ THIS STORY? No way, José. Buncha liars. New York Times, AP, practically all of them. I take EVERYTHING they write w/ a grain of salt, ESPECIALLY when it involves the church.
Prayer sites for the Holy Father are everywhere, and today, this day of Divine Mercy I heartily join in prayer to ST. MICHAEL the ARCH ANGEL to defend us in battle and offer this beautiful prayer:A prayer for the Holy FatherChrist Jesus, King and Lord of the Church, in your presence I renew my unconditional loyalty to your Vicar on earth, the Pope. In him you have chosen to show us the safe and sure path that we must follow in the midst of confusion, uneasiness, and unrest. I firmly believe that through him you govern, teach, and sanctify us; with him as our shepherd, we form the true Church: one, holy, catholic, and apostolic. Grant me the grace to love, live, and spread faithfully our Holy Father’s teachings. Watch over his life, enlighten his mind, strengthen his spirit, defend him from calumny and evil. Calm the erosive winds of infidelity and disobedience. Hear our prayer and keep your Church united around him, firm in its belief and action, that it may truly be the instrument of your redemption. Amen.
