  1. Wow! Thanks for the link OMM. He’s got a wonderful site. I’ll come up for air in about two weeks. It’ll take that long just to look at everything. Marvelous. Thanks again. God bless. Ginnyfree.

    1. Ya know, I used to be a blonde, so I couldn’t figure it out. Duh. If she wants to chat, she can do so here. I don’t converse off the boards I visit off the boards. Boundaries. Does that make sense? Or if she has a site or blog I can visit, that would be swell. God bless. Ginnyfree.

  2. Ooops. I forgot. I’ve heard this particular show several times, at least two. Most of his stuff is timeless. He is a Saint and it shows. Those who hated him and threw monkey wrenches into his process are dead now, so it moves forward. Some hatreds never die, folks just take them to the grave with them and they go to the place that kept them hating instead of loving. Oh well. The rest of us have to survive their hatreds in this life. God bless. Ginnyfree.

  3. OMM,

    I love this work by Bishop Sheen. I’ve seen it and savored it many times. How I wish we had clergy in the ‘spotlight’ who could speak and teach the Truth with such strength. Thanks for bringing this gem to your readers’ attention at a most apropos time.

  4. Just a thought on the notion of “tolerance.” In the Book of Revelation we find an admonishment regarding tolerance. It is found early in the work, in Chapter 2 while John is being instructed by God about what to write to each of the churches established by him before he was sent to Patmos. He is writing to the very first Christian community he evangelized and his words have borne witness down through the ages to the very heart of the times of distress needing correction that tend to repeat themselves in the various communities of disciples. His words to the Church community in Ephesus are very timely for us in the good ole US of A today. Here they are: 2 “I know your works, your labor, and your endurance, and that you cannot tolerate the wicked; you have tested those who call themselves apostles but are not, and discovered that they are impostors.” Yet today we are taught and expected to do the same, that is, to tolerate the wicked, think here the LGBTQs and all those who support them. No this unthinkable to St. John and to God. We learn from the admonishment of God towards the Church establishment in Ephesus that toleration is not a good thing, so why do we not test those who call themselves Apostles who are in fact, impostures, telling us to open our hearts and homes and places of worship to the gays without any talk about the very mortal sins they are living out in their lives. The very language of our church community is being purged of any words that may speak of intolerance. We are being instructed to be careful not to offend any of these persons by even suggesting their sins are mortal. Hello?? Are these men and women who teach such, not be exposed as the very impostors this passage warns us of? The Scripture says it is wrong to tolerate wicked persons and for doing so, there is a very real threat from God of emminent destruction of the particular Christian communities that do so. If you continue reading this particular admonishment of St. John, you will find the answer from God about how He intends to deal with those who fail to repent regarding this particular sin against Him and the Church: 5 “Realize how far you have fallen. Repent, and do the works you did at first. Otherwise, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent.” There ya go folks. What God WILL DO if the leaders of the churches who teach tolerance do not turn back from this type of wickedness and return to the works originally practiced, God Himself will remove their lampstand. That is symbolic language for destruction of the particular churches practicing such things. One other little detail. I hope you’ve heard the prophetic voices recently raised that a persecution of the Church in the western world is about to occur, that it has been creeping up on us bit by bit and is about to be unleashed. Well, I agree with that and also see in that fact the fulfillment in Christ of the very words found in St. John’s Apocalypse, that the lampstand needs removing because there has been no repentance among those who have tolerated the wicked. It doesn’t take much thinking to see the very real problem of the peophilia scandals to see what wickedness WAS tolerated and by whom and for how long. And now those very men are talking about being even more tolerant. Yes, MadMom, I’d say St. John letter to the Ephesians found inside his Apocalypse could’ve been written and sent to Cardinal Wuerl himself. But these words would fall on deaf ears and he’d turn his back on the nutcase who’d dare show him the words of the Apocalypse and tell him how he is personally responsible for the impending removal of the lampstand, that is the Church, in our day. It is coming. God will have to act to end all the scandals because they’ve refused to stop and turn back the their original works. Alrightie then, nuff said by me. Thank you for your tolerance of my little rant after Mass. Must’ve been something I ate, or is it properly speaking the Someone I ate? Could be…………..God bless. Ginnyfree.

    1. Dear gf,

      [I am grinning typing this]

      Sts. John and Paul would probably *laud you* for your… intolerance. ;^)

      The illogic of “tolerance,” and those who erroneously teach/preach it, is… um, “wicked”.

      1. TT, why do you insist that Heaven be limited to your own limited vision? Are you a god yourself that you can imagine some place into being? It’s all about accepting reality for what it is. Acceptance is key. You should acquire some. God bless. Ginnyfree.

  5. Well, not my call to say who goes to heaven and who does not. That said, that is not the teaching of Christ’s Church. It’s pleasant thoughts and sounds easy peasy but Matt 7:21 says: Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth the will of my Father who is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven.

      1. Colossians 3:5-6 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, lust, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is the service of idols. For which things the wrath of God cometh upon the children of unbelief, (I’d read the rest of this one).

        Anyways, we could go on. You seem so confident but you seem to also admit you don’t know if Heaven even exists. At that point, you kind of have to go into a Pachal’s wager about the Catholic Church.
