Heil Bloomberg!

Once again Mayor Michael Bloomberg is showing his delusions of grandeur.  He is a billionaire, has managed to convinced the City Council to extend his term, and is a progressive who pushes ideas without considering the consequences.

Well he is pushing an idea which is rubbing New Yorkers the wrong way.  He wants to ban "super size" soda servings.  While New Yorkers are suffering high unemployment rates, dropouts in schools, rise in crime, high rent, high costs of food and necessities, this man is worried about drinks.

His rationale is that this will help ease the obesity epidemic.  In reality, this will not.  People will still drink more soda regardless of the portion.

 Moreover, soda pop is not the only contributor to weight gain.  Genetics play a role, not to mention the over consumption of calories found in other foods.

Bloomberg is an example of when government attempts to control too much.  Bloomberg is the poster child of what the American colonists wanted to avoid when they protested the Stamp act.


No Condoms at Prom

This world just continues to lose its reason.  A school in NY made plans to distribute 500 condoms to its students on prom night!  Thank the good Lord that this stupid idea was canceled.  The school received backlash from the idea of handing out condoms and decided to pull the plug, so to speak.

I understand the argument that we need to "protect" kids, but handing them condoms isn't protection.  This gives them the idea that promiscuity is ok.  It is encouraging them to be sexually active with anyone at any time.  It is like handing out clean syringes to drug addicts.  The intention might be seen as a good (protect from HIV), but it is really stupid.

We should have as a goal the complete removal of drug addiction, not an appeasement to it.  Condoms are the same.  We should have as a goal the installation of values to young people and not appease their sexual desires which are most likely influenced by the media.

The facts are clear about condoms - they are not helping.  See my other blog here for more details  "Let kids be kids"

Braaainnnn  Brainnnn  Brainnnnn!  We all probably remember those cries from the horror-comedy "Night of the Living Dead."  The movie was of course about zombies.  Zombies have always been a topic of talk in many societies throughout the ages.  With movies like "Dawn of the Dead,"  "Land of the Dead,"  "Day of the Dead," and the hit comic book series now turned into a hit cable series, "The Walking Dead;" zombies are more popular now than ever before.

All over Yahoo, Google, Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, "zombie apocalypse" is trending.  This unfortunately is not due to movies, but to a horrific crime that took place last week in Miami.  Police were called to a scene near a highway where what they saw shocked them.  They saw a naked man eating another man's face!

Rudy Eugene, a 31 year old was on top of Ronald Poppo devouring his face.  Cops approached Eugene and ordered him to halt.  Eugene instead growled and continued eating Poppo's face.  Cops shot him, but it had no effect on Eugene.  They continued until he eventually succumbed to the shots.

The story is indeed bizarre.  It is so bizarre that people are starting to believe some sort of "Zombie Apocalypse" is on its way.  The CDC's blog on how to prepare and survive disasters which uses a Zombie theme was visited in large numbers.  People are even looking up Scripture passages that seem to sound like  God is planning a "Zombie Apocalypse."

Scripture passages:
Isaiah 26: 19-20

Zechariah 14:12
Matthew 27:52-53 
John 5:28-29

Any one with a good grasp of Scripture knows that these verses do not deal with any "Zombie Apocalypse" but on the coming future when the dead will rise to be judged before God.  The Resurrection of the dead is not a curse of God in which He makes corpses rise and eat everyone still living.

The human being can have a great imagination at times...  

The story in Miami most likely has to do with drugs.  It seems that the young man was under the influence of a strong mix of chemicals that altered his perception.  There is talk of bath salts as being the culprit.  The cerebellum is the most primitive part of the brain which controls motor skills and natural impulses such as the instinct to eat, and reproduce.  Most likely, Eugene had something in his system that increased the function of that section and it overruled the cerebral cortex which controls reason, conscience, the senses and self awareness.  It will be weeks until toxicology reports are released that will say whether in fact Eugene was under the influence of drugs or some chemical mixture.

Miami is a city that is known for its heavy partying and drug atmosphere.  Attention must be given to this issue.  Eugene is said to have been a great student in high school and often preached to others.  His victim Poppo was a graduate of the prestigious high school Stuyvesant in Manhattan which is known for its bright alumni.  Why he is homeless is still unclear.

Doctors are worried that Poppo will develop serious infections due to the fact that his injuries were caused by a human mouth.  The mouth is one of the most filthy parts of the human body.  Unfortunately he will be disfigured and most likely will be in pain for the rest of his life.

Today we celebrate Pentecost or the day when the Catholic Church was publicly officially born.  The Blessed Virgin Mother Mary and the Apostles gathered in an upper room and prayed for 9 days.   They then received the Holy Spirit who descended upon them as tongues of fire.  

They received the gifts of the Holy Spirit as well as the gift of tongues so that people could understand them in their native language as they preached the Gospel of Christ. (Acts 2)  

Pentecost means the 'fiftieth day' and was the day on which the 'Feast of Weeks' or 'Shevout' was celebrated.  On this day, all Jews recalled the day the Commandments were given to Moses 50 days after their Exodus from Egypt.  There was a big harvest on this day.  

Jesus had promised the Holy Spirit to the Apostles.  He told them that the Helper or Paraclete will come to them reminding them of all He has taught them and will guide them in Truth.  (John14:15-31)  These are important verses that are ignored by our separated brethren who often claim that the Catholic Church is corrupt and apostate.  In America's infancy, groups such as the Finneyites rose up preaching a form of "primitivism," or what they called a return to the "original Christianity."  We see many of their sects today such as the Baptists, Pentecostals, Jehovah's Witnesses, Methodists, Evangelicals, Mormons, Adventists and so on.  

Anyone who believes that Christ's Catholic Church became corrupt is basically calling Jesus a liar.  If Jesus indeed promised that the Spirit would guide the Church in Truth, how can it become corrupt?  How can the Church fall away from Christ?  This is a misconception our separated friends must really meditate on and throw away as ignorant rhetoric from the harsh anti-Catholicism that existed in the past - post reformation into America's infancy.   


  • Let us pray for the Holy Spirit to come once again and renew the Catholic Church and the world.  
  • Let us pray to the Holy Spirit to rid the Church of scandals; to rid the Church of her Judas's who continue to betray Jesus.  
  • Let us pray for the Holy Spirit to renew our Faith in this Year of Faith and to restore or give the gift of Faith to those who lost it or never bothered to open it.  
  • Let us pray to the Holy Spirit to tell us what to do in these trying times.  To instruct us how to confront with love and reason the ideas of today such as Relativism, Atheism, Secularism, Homosexuality - Marriage rights issues, Feminism, Indifferentism, Personhood distortions.  

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and enkindle in them the fire of your love, sent forth your spirit and they shall be created and you shall renew the face of the earth.  

O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Etan Patz

Since 1979 a young boy named Etan Patz has been missing.  He was last seen in a neighborhood in lower Manhattan.  For years many "leads" have popped up, but none were credible.  None even gave a hint as to the boy's whereabouts or if he was even alive.  He was the first child put on a milk carton as a way to alert people of missing children.    

Recently the case was reopened.  A basement in a nearby building where Patz was last seen was torn apart but no evidence was found.  A man was a suspect for a while, but was then let go because of no leads indicating any involvement.

Today a man from New Jersey, Pedro Fernandez revealed to the NYPD that he killed the young boy after luring him into a Bodega where he worked.  He claims he suffocated and put the boy in a bag and then in a box, left the box on the street and when he went to retrieve it, the box was gone.  In another story, he says he stabbed the boy.  The NYPD is now trying to sort everything out to see if this man is telling the truth, is seeking attention, or is mentally ill.

I pray and hope something comes up that will put closure to this young man's family.  It pains my heart to hear that the family never changed their number since the 70's in hope Etan would call them.  It is horrible to hear these stories, but it is the reality of the evil human beings can do.

Parents and guardians, please take care of the young.  Do not let them go out alone for whatever reason until they are at least in their teens.   I personally do not believe kids in pre-k to 7th grade should be left to go to and from school or anywhere alone.  Kids may give off the appearance of maturity, but they are still kids!  

UPDATE:  Pedro Hernandez was charged and is said to have mental illness.  He is bipolar and has hallucinations.

Planned Parenthood Defunded in Penn?

Planned Parenthood in Pennsylvania might be defunded.  We can only hope and pray that this is the case.  This evil empire of death must be shut down.  How many more women and children will be killed or injured before the government steps in?


Fry them Gays! - NC Pastor

A fanatical preacher from North Carolina recently said in a sermon that gays and lesbians should be herded into an electrified pen and killed off.  Charles L. Worley of the Providence Road Baptist Church is under fire for his angry and violent statement.

This preacher is not preaching Christ.  He is preaching his own hate.  While I myself am accused of hate, I would never say something evil as this guy has.  The difference between me in the Catholic Church and this preacher is that I attack the behavior, not the people.  Homosexuals are human beings.  They are not lacking in human dignity.  They too are in made God's image and deserve respect.

To say that homosexuals should be placed in an electrified pen and killed off is evil.  Jesus doesn't command anyone to save a sinner by killing him/her.  We convert people by the way we live the Gospel.

This preacher needs a lesson in tolerance and a real lesson on the Gospel.

Today is the Ascension.  Today Our Lord went to heaven.  He did what He had to do while on Earth.  He now sits at the right hand of the Father and will return again to judge the living and the dead.  When will He come?  No one knows.  Our job is to be ready for that day and hour.

Some ask: why didn't Jesus stay forever?  Well He is with us in the Blessed Sacrament.  He had to go in His human form in order for the Paraclete, or the Holy Spirit to come.(John 16:7)
Because of this, the Holy Spirit came on Pentecost and remains with the Church even till today despite scandals and nonsense seen among Catholics.

Let us pray for Christ to return soon.

Happy Mother's Day

Today is Mother's day.  I wish everyone a blessed day.  May our Lord bless all mothers, living and deceased, and of course grandmothers.

In a world threatened by social constructs that wish to destroy the family, we need to celebrate this day and remind ourselves that we must defend the natural family.

The mother is the most important person in society.  She brings forth the gift of life, nurtures the life and prepares the life for a world that is tough to live in.

It is no wonder why God tells us to honor our parents.  Yes, they can be a nag sometimes, but who else can we really trust other than a mother?  A mother has wisdom and love.  She knows us even when we think she has no clue.  A mother has a strong bond with her child(ren).

She will go at all lengths to protect her child(ren). There is a story my beloved friend and pastor who is with God and Our Lady now in heaven used to share during his homily.

There was a mother and child in town.  The classmates and friends of the child would tease him because his mother was not attractive.  She was burnt, disfigured and a sight children will stare at.  He being a youth wanted to fit in.  He wanted to be "cool."  That being said, he was embarrassed of having a mother who others saw as unattractive due to her injuries.  So one day out of frustration he yelled at his mom, 'why do you have to be so ugly!  they tease me at school, they bully me.. I hate you...'   The mother with teary eyes looked at him and said, 'my boy, I love you and what you say hurts me.  Do you know why I am like this?  I am like this because when you were a baby we had a fire and I passed through debris and fire to rescue you and take you out because I love you and can't bear the thought of losing you."  

May God bless all mothers and grandmothers.  Thank you mom and my grandmothers for always being there for me.  Thank you mom for being my everything.  Thank you Blessed Mother as well for saying YES to God.  Because of you, we have redemption!   

I thank both my physical and spiritual mothers.

Nebraska Woman's Anti-Gay Rant

Jane Svoboda of Nebraska went on the floor at the city council and began a homophobic rant that took everyone by surprise.  She went on speaking all kinds of negative things about homosexuals, even mentioning Judas Iscariot who she claimed was a "homo."  

This lady is apparently schizophrenic.

While I am not a supporter of the homosexual lifestyle, I can see why the LGBT and others would be offended.  She went too far and I have no idea why she was given mic time.

We must hate the sin but love the sinner.

Obama Flip Flops on "Gay Marriage"

In a move that possibly destroyed his reelection bid, President Obama said in an interview conducted by ABC that he supports so-called "gay marriage."

This became the "breaking news" of the day for some reason.  The media was following this with such fanaticism and made no attempt to mask their slanted reporting and jubilation.

Some reporters commented that Obama is now on the "right side of history" whatever that means.  Others were just elated and compared the news to the Civil rights movement in light of Obama being the first African American president.  It was just embarrassing for the American media.  

It is no surprise that this is all a set up.  North Carolina last night told the LGBT community and its attempt to socially engineer its state to go take a walk.   Moreover, thirty-eight states ban this social construct created by progressives with either its constitutions, statutes or amendments to them.  There is no way all 50 states would legalize so-called "gay marriage."  Even Obama said that he will leave it to the states.  Most of the states have already decided that its a "no thanks."

Only 8 states legalized it and those states are the ones that are run by progressives - surprise surprise.  In New York alone, the protocols used by the senate to pass bills was disregarded in order to make it easy for so-called "gay marriage" bill to pass.  Gov. Cuomo of course was there in person waiting to sign it.  Senator Ruben Diaz, the sole Democrat against it was not allowed to speak.

I remember watching it all on TV and thinking, "is this America?"  A week before, a bill that would've helped low-income residents who rent and the unemployed was stalled in the senate's bureaucracy!  Priority was given to this "gay marriage bill!"  It was preposterous especially in the bad times we are in now.  

It is clear that this social construct is not compatible with American values.  In California, the people voted it down and now the courts are trying to overrule the people!  Talk about tyranny.

President Obama in order to deflect attention from his lack of a good record is now using the LGBT agenda to once again present himself as the "hero" - "the man of hope and change."  Prior to today he refused to support so-called "gay marriage" and said marriage is between a man and a woman.  

He is flip flopping on the issue!  It is so obvious that this man is desperate and is trying everything to present to the American people that he is what he promised to be back in 2008.  

I am extremely disappointed that our president has chosen to support a social construct that only wishes to socially engineer our nation in order to benefit a minority group.  No one, no group is worth throwing away our core values and beliefs.  We lose who we are if we do so.  

This man is not a good leader.  He sinks quickly in any situation and "lends his arm to be twisted." (to borrow from a Puerto Rican elderly lady I heard this from.)  He has no conviction at all and this is needed in a president. 

God help us all if this guy is reelected.  God help America if it continues to adopt social constructs that are contrary to the natural law.

La Fe

La Fe es algo importante en la vida humana.  La Fe levanta todo el ser hacia Dios.  

Jesucristo nos dice, 

"Si vuestra fe fuese siquiera del tamaño de una semilla de mostaza, podríais decirle a este sicómoro: Desarráigate y plántate en el mar, y os obedecería." (Lucas 17:6)

No hay obstáculo que no se puede superar con la fe. Tener fe puede ser difícil de cumplir. Tenemos que abandonar a lo que estamos acostumbrados -majormente a los sentidos. 

Los ateos a menudo luchan con esta idea. Están tan acostumbrados al fisicalismo que no pueden ver más allá de lo que los sentidos les dicen de este universo y de la tierra.

La fe está más allá de los sentidos. Es una capacidad más alta de la experiencia humanaLa fe no está dirigida por las leyes de la física, o leyes de los hombres. Es libre, fluyendo como un río que no puede ser detenida por ningún objeto. 

Es tan vasto como el mar, enorme como el universoLa fe permite al ser humano a ir más allá de este mundo, pero al mismo tiempo, transforma el ser humano y el mundo. 

Los invito a tener fe - la fe en DiosConfía en Dios como un niño confía en su madre.  Piérdete en la presencia de Dios con la feDios te mostrará el camino en su vida. El camino que debes seguir. Con la fe en Dios, vas a mover las montañas en su vida.

Queer Savage...

LGBT activist Dan Savage is indeed an "intellectual savage."  He is responsible for the futile nonsensical "it gets better" propaganda in which actors were paid to give false hope to homosexuals that somehow life will get better for them.

This propaganda is unrealistic and ignores the fact that children will be children and will resort to bullying and teasing one another.  It is part of "growing up."
Adults even bully each other.

Not even LGBT youth who committed suicide Jamie Hubley believed in this propaganda.

Savage was invited to speak to a group of high school students who are studying journalism.  Instead of being professional, he began mocking the Bible and Christianity.  He even insinuated that the Pope was a homosexual.  I was going to post the video here but decided not to because the whole thing is disgusting and shows how immature and ridiculous this character is.

Many students got up and walked out on him and I applaud them for that!  These are brave young kids who showed that they will not be pontificated to.  They will not be brainwashed with LGBT fallacious rhetoric.

Ironically, Savage who is against bullying began to mock and bully the kids who walked out!  This guy is either mentally ill or an imbecile.  Who can respect someone like this?  He is a hypocrite who is against the bullying of one group but promotes the bullying of another.  He is a hate monger who deserves to have everyone walk out on him.  

Schools, colleges, institutions, please don't waste money hiring this ignorant bigot.  Use that money to buy books, computers and other things for educational uses.

Blessed John Paul II - 1st Year Anniversary

Today is the 1st year anniversary of the Beatification of His Holiness, Pope John Paul II - The Great!  Time moves on so fast.  Bl. John Paul II was a great man and great priest.  He is truly missed but will never be forgotten.  He is still part of the Church despite not being physically with us.

He was a juggernaut for the faith who inspired so many, young and old.  May Bl. John Paul II continue to pray for us all still in the Church Militant on Earth.  John Paul II we Luv You!

Death of Osama Bin Laden 1st year Anniversary

A year has passed since the most wanted terrorist Osama Bin Laden was shot to death in Pakistan.  After 10 years on the run, he was finally found and faced justice, according to some.

Ironically, he was killed on the consecutive 9th month starting from September in the "11th" year.

I remember the day clearly.  People took to the streets in celebration just as people in some Arab nations took to the streets to celebrate the attacks on September 11, 2011.  "We got the bastard" could be heard on tv from revelers.

Was this justice?  Does killing crazy people stop crazy things from happening?  The answers can vary depending on how one sees things.

A nation and a person have the right to self preservation.  When a nation or person doesn't defend its/his/her interests, this lack of action in a way encourages future attacks.  Let's take the United States of America's history with terrorism for example.

The country was recently attacked by Muslim extremists in 1993, 1996, 1998, 2000 and 2001.  Notice the pattern.  The attacks became more frequent.  This was  because the terrorists saw that the United States of America did nothing to retaliate or prevent attacks.  This lack of action gave the message that the United States of America either was weak, doesn't care, or cannot prevent surprise attacks.

President Clinton was president during these years and obviously homeland security was not a major concern for him.  Perhaps he was too busy with interns...  

When President Bush took over as president, things changed.  Immediately after the September 11 attacks, action was taken.  The nation took the "fight to them," to paraphrase from Bush.  Since then, no attacks have occurred and any attacks attempted were thwarted.  Unfortunately Bush got a bit carried away and began declaring unjust wars in the name of "war on terror."  

President Obama now seems to keep homeland security an issue but wants to cut down the military.  This may or may not be a good thing in today's world.

The death of Bin Laden does not guarantee that terrorism is over.  Al Qaida is still out there and has the zeal to continue plotting against the United States of America.

It is sad to see Democrats and President Obama use the death of Bin Laden on their political resume.  However the Republicans and Bush did the same with September 11 in 2004.

I personally side with the Vatican in that we shouldn't celebrate anyone's death.

“This morning, following the killing of Osama Bin Laden, the Director of the Holy See Press Office, P. Federico Lombardi, issued the following statement to reporters:
Osama Bin Laden - as everyone knows - has had the gravest responsibility for spreading hatred and division among people, causing the deaths of countless people, and exploiting religion for this purpose.
Faced with the death of a man, a Christian never rejoices, but reflects on the serious responsibility of everyone before God and man, and hopes and pledges that every event is not an opportunity for a further growth of hatred, but of peace.”

I would have preferred seeing Bin Laden on trial forced to see the faces of the victims and their families. Forced to face America all alone in our court system.  

De Colores!

You're probably wondering why there is a rainbow here.  NO THIS IS NOT A "GAY PRIDE" THING!  The rainbow belongs to God, not the LGBT community.

This is one of the symbols used by the Cursillo movement.  The Cursillo has its origins in southern Spain in the 1940's.  Its purpose is to activate faith in Christians by using 3 days of prayer, isolation from the world and the studying of Christian spirituality.  

The word 'Cursillo' means short course or workshop.  It is meant to describe the 15 courses given during the 3 days.  The courses remind a Christian of his/her duty as a witness to Christ. He/she makes a commitment to live the Christian life through prayer, study and action

That is about all I can share due to the fact that one has to experience the Cursillo in order to benefit from it greatly.  

  • Prayer is important in a spiritual life.  Without prayer; faith, charity, religion are useless.  In prayer we submit to God.  We are reminded of our place before God.  
  • Study is very important.  We must know the Faith well and how to defend it.  We should also use the wisdom and sciences of the world to defend and promote the faith.   
  • Action must always be taken by all Christians.  Faith is something that cannot be private.  We must share it with others through our life and our words.  

The Cursillo doesn't end at the 3rd day.  All Cursillistas are called upon to attend the Ultreya and continue their spiritual growth.  

If you have not made your Cursillo you are missing out.  It is an awesome experience - a truly spiritually nourishing event.
