Columbus Day

On October 12, 1492, Christopher Columbus set foot on an Island in the Bahamas he named San Salvador, which means Christ the Savior! The article below gives a very good Catholic perspective on why Columbus wanted, and Queen Isabella financed his expedition to the New World…it was to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Catholic faith!

CANTICLE OF BROTHER SUN AND SISTER MOON

Most High, all-powerful, all-good Lord,
All praise is Yours, all glory, all honour and all blessings.
To You alone, Most High, do they belong,
and no mortal lips are worthy to pronounce Your Name.

Praised be You my Lord with all Your creatures,
especially Sir Brother Sun,
Who is the day through whom You give us light.
And he is beautiful and radiant with great splendour,
Of You Most High, he bears the likeness.

Pope at Santa Marta: The authority of Christian identity

Pope Francis preaches on Christian identity at Mass Tuesday morning

(Vatican Radio) A Christian’s authority comes from the Holy Spirit, not from human wisdom or degrees in theology, said Pope Francis at morning Mass Tuesday, as he explained that Christian identity is having the Spirit of Christ, not the “spirit of the world”.
Emer McCarthy reports Listen:
The people were astonished at Christ’s teaching because he spoke with authority. Inspired by the passage from the Gospel Pope dwelt on the nature of Our Lord’s authority and, as a consequence that of the Christian. He said that Jesus was “not a common preacher,” because his “authority” comes from the ‘”special anointing of the Holy Spirit.” Jesus, he said, is “the Son of God, anointed and sent” to “bring salvation, to bring freedom.” And some, he noted, “were scandalized” by this style that belonged to Jesus, by its identity and freedom:
“We too can ask ourselves, what is our identity as Christians? Paul puts it very well today when he says: ‘And we speak about them not with words taught by human wisdom’. Paul’s preaching is not the result of a course at the Lateran, or the Gregorian [Pontifical Universities – ed]… No, no, no! Not human wisdom, no! But taught by the Spirit: Paul preached with the anointing of the Spirit, expressing spiritual things of the Spirit in spiritual terms. Man cannot understand the things of the Spirit of God by his own strength: Man alone cannot understand this!”.
The Pope continued that this is why “if we Christians do not fully understand the things of the Spirit, if we do not give or offer witness then we have no identity”. For some, he said, “these things of the Spirit are foolishness, they are not able to understand them”. The man moved by the Spirit, however, “judges everything: He is free and cannot be judged by anyone”.

The New Blacklist

[Unfortunately the velvet mafia is alive and well not only in the political world and in the private sector, but in the Vatican II church also.]

The New Blacklist
Monday – April 7, 2014 at 11:02 pm

buchanan.org/blog/new-blacklist-6346

By Patrick J. Buchanan
“There is a gay mafia,” said Bill Maher, “if you cross them you do get whacked.”
Maher, the host of HBO’s “Real Time,” was talking about the gay activists and their comrades who drove Brendan Eich out as CEO of Mozilla. Eich, who invented JavaScript and co-founded Mozilla in 1998, had been named chief executive in late March.
Instantly, he came under attack for having contributed $1,000 to Proposition 8, whereby a majority of Californians voted in 2008 to reinstate a ban on same-sex marriage. Prop 8 was backed by the Catholic Church, the Mormon Church and the black churches, and carried 70 percent of the African-American vote.
Though Eich apologized for any “pain” he had caused and pledged to promote equality for gays and lesbians at Mozilla, his plea for clemency failed to move his accusers. Too late. According to The Guardian, he quit after it was revealed that he had also contributed — “The horror, the horror!” — to the Buchanan campaign of 1992.
That cooked it. What further need was there of proof of the irredeemably malevolent character of Brendan Eich?
Observing the mob run this accomplished man out of a company he helped create, Andrew Sullivan blogged that Eich “has just been scalped” by gay activists. Sullivan went on:
“Will he now be forced to walk through the streets in shame? Why not the stocks? The whole thing disgusts me, as it should disgust anyone interested in a tolerant and diverse society.”
Yet, the purge of Eich, who, from his contributions — he also gave to Ron Paul — appears to be a traditionalist and libertarian — is being defended as a triumph of the First Amendment.
James Ball of The Guardian writes that far from being “a defeat for freedom of expression,” Eich’s removal is a “victory — the ouster of a founder and CEO by his own people, at a foundation based on open and equal expression.”
Eich’s forced resignation, writes Ball, “should be the textbook example of the system working exactly as it should.”
Ball seems to be saying that what the gay mob did to Eich at Mozilla is what the heroes of Maidan Square did in driving President Viktor Yanukovych out of power and out of his country.
This is how the democracy works now.
Mitchell Baker, the executive chairwoman of Mozilla Foundation, who escorted Eich out, said in her statement: “Mozilla believes both in equality and freedom of speech.
Equality is necessary for meaningful speech. And you need free speech to fight for equality. Figuring out how to stand for both at the same time can be hard.”
George Orwell, thou shouldst be living at this hour.
What Baker is saying is that you have freedom of speech, so long as you use your speech to advocate equality.
And what do we do with those who use their freedom of speech to express their view, rooted in religion and history, that traditional marriage is not only superior to same-sex marriage, the latter is a contradiction of the natural and moral law.
And what of those institutions that teach and preach that outside traditional marriage sexual relations are wrong?
One such is the 2,000-year-old Catholic Church whose 1976 catechism, “The Teaching of Christ,” describes homosexual acts as “sexual vices” and “sexual perversions.”
Is that just yesterday’s church and yesterday’s belief?
Well, one of the compilers of that catechism was Donald W. Wuerl of Angelicum University in Rome, who would appear to be the same cleric as Cardinal Archbishop Donald Wuerl of Washington, D.C., who is now one of the inner circle advising Pope Francis I.
Yet, it is not only Catholic, Mormon, Evangelical and Protestant churches that believe this, but the Islamic faith, perhaps a majority of Americans, and more than a majority of the world’s peoples.
Up until last year, Barack Obama opposed same-sex marriage.
What the Brendan Eich episode teaches us, where a man was driven from a position he had earned, because of his beliefs, and was abandoned and left undefended by false friends and gutless peers in Silicon Valley, is this:
In the new dispensation, opposition to same-sex marriage disqualifies you from leadership and may legitimately be used to bring about the ruin of your career.
This is the new blacklist.
The old blacklist declared that if you were a member of the Communist Party that toadied to Stalin, and you refused to recant and took the Fifth Amendment, you would not be permitted to work in Hollywood. We are Americans, said that Hollywood, and we believe in American values.
Now, nearly seven decades later, the Stalinists of the ’40s are martyr-heroes in Hollywood. And in Silicon Valley conservatives and traditionalists who oppose same-sex marriage are to be denied top jobs and driven into social exile.
The new blacklist means that while diversity of races, genders and sexual orientations is mandatory, diversity of thought and opinion is restricted. In Silicon Valley, they burn heretics.
