In its official biography of Jaegerstaetter, the Diocese of Linz says he had a dream in 1938 warning of the horrors of Hitler's regime to come. "In it, he saw a train carrying innumerable people to perdition, and its meaning was unveiled to him as representing the Nazis."

Christian: My family is voting for Rudjard Hayes!

Christian's picture

Mr. Hayes will be a VERY aggressive and STRONG District Attorney and will definitely scare criminals away from this circuit, which is just what we need here!! Nevertheless, Rudjard is a very kind and considerate person that has perfomed many volunteer activities in this community.

Christian: Anyway

Christian's picture

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

Christian: Litany of Humility

O JESUS! meek and humble of heart,
Hear me.

Deliver me, Jesus.

Christian: Nine out of ten of what we call new ideas are simply old mistakes

Christian's picture

Nine out of ten of what we call new ideas are simply old mistakes. The Catholic Church has for one of her chief duties that of preventing people from making those old mistakes; from making them over and over again, as people will always do if they are left to themselves.

A Christmas Carol
by G.K. Chesterton (1874–1936), the greatest Catholic writer of his day:

The Christ-child lay on Mary's lap,

Christian: The way I see it: this election was absolutely about TDK

Christian's picture

Why would a group of prominent developers, lawyers, real estate, and mortgage people spend over $40,000 to get their candidate elected when they knew the only serious challenger (Steve Brown) would be spending NOTHING. I think there is one simple answer: making sure the TDK bridge and extension get built.

Christian: Our Saint of the Day

Christian: Today is the worldwide Feast Day of Saint Nicholas

Christian's picture

Glorious Nicholas, The Holy Preacher of Christ, you are the great and fervent protector of those in danger: those on land and sea, far off or near, for you are a most compassionate and mighty intercessor. Therefore as we assemble, we cry aloud: Pray to the Lord that we may be delivered from all danger.

Christian's picture

SAY THE MIRACLE PRAYER daily and it will change your life! Hear 92-year old charismatic healing priest, Fr.Peter Mary Rookey, who gave his life to God after a miraculous cure from blindness, recite this wonderful prayer.

Christian: The key to stopping TDK for good is abandoning the right-of-way!

Christian's picture

Despite all the talk about the TDK project being halted, until Peachtree City vacates (gives up) the right-of-way, this road could be built in the future.

Christian: What the Popes said about Atheistic Nazis

Christian's picture

On April 28, 1935, Cardinal Pacelli (who became Pope Pius XII) gave an address to 250,000 in Lourdes, France. He said, "[The Nazis] are in reality only miserable plagiarists who dress up old errors with new tinsel. It does not make any difference whether they flock to the banners of social revolution, whether they are guided by a false concept of the world and of life, or whether they are possessed by the superstition of a race and blood cult."

Christian: Catholicism versus Atheism

Christian's picture

The Catholic Church is still proudly the oldest and largest provider of health care in the world. I have never heard of an Atheist Hospital anywhere.

Christian: Popes: Marxism and "all-consuming desire for profit" are both wrong.

Christian's picture

In the encyclical Sollicitudo Rei Socialis, Pope John Paul II stated:

“The Church's social doctrine adopts a critical attitude towards both liberal capitalism and Marxist collectivism.”

Christian: The Blood That Saves: a Meditation by Father Thomas J. Euteneuer

Christian's picture

In the month of July the Catholic Church meditates in a special way upon the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ. While it may seem strange for a religious people to be devoted to something as earthly as blood, it is not just anyone's blood that we meditate on. It is the Blood of the Paschal Lamb who was slain for the sins of the whole world, and we truly worship His Blood as the perfect sacrifice which sanctifies us.

Christian: Prayer to the Virgin Mary as Untier of Knots

With the world focused on events taking place in Iraq over the past four years, it is interesting to note that St. Jude had an intimate connection to this part of the world during his life.

Christian: Prayer to St. Jude (cousin of Our Blessed Lord)

Christian's picture

"O most holy apostle, St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, people honor and invoke you universally, as the patron of hopeless cases, of things almost despaired of. Pray for me, for I am so helpless and alone. Please help to bring me visible and speedy assistance. Come to my assistance in this great need that I may receive the consolation and help of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings, particularly (state your request) and that I may praise God with you always."

Christian: Novena of the Miraculous Medal

Christian's picture

O Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of Our Lord Jesus and my Mother, penetrated with the most lively confidence in your all-powerful and never-failing intercession, manifested so often through the Miraculous Medal. I, your loving and trustful child, implore you to obtain for me the graces and favors I ask during this Novena, if they be beneficial to my immortal soul, and the souls for whom I pray. (here privately form your prayer requests) You know, O Mary, how often my soul has been the sanctuary of your Son who hates iniquity. Obtain for me then a deep hatred of sin and that purity of heart which will attach me to God alone so that my every thought, word and deed may tend to His greater glory. Obtain for me also a spirit of prayer and self-denial that I may recover by penance what I have lost by sin and at length attain to that blessed abode where you are the Queen of angels and of all people. Amen.

Christian: Prayer of the Blessed Virgin
