All the news I wish to print

There are all kinds of stories out there. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry. Some will make you shrug, some will make you scream. Read any daily paper or listen to any newscast and your emotions can go from happy to sad to disbelief to fear to incredulity to horror to anger in very short order.
As we go along, there will be stories, as Paul Harvey used to say, to "wash your ears out with." There will be others that will make you feel like you need to be deloused simply by virtue of have in heard or read them. Some posts will be religious, some secular and for some I expect will defy easy classification in either category. I hope you will join me in this journey and pleas feel free to comment along the way.
For my part I pledge not to remove any posts unless they are vulgar, libelous, threatening or otherwise in violation of the standards of civil discussion. I will not remove any post simply because I disagree with it but I will reserve the right to respond to any challenges that come my way.
God bless you and welome to my blog.

Church's namesake Tekakwitha to be canonized for sainthood

This holy woman has always intrigued me. She maintained her faith in the most trying of difficulties while so many today simply discard it out of pique, willful ignorance or laziness. Her story now should recieve far greater attention and her life should serve as an inspiration to us all.

Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha — the namesake of three churches in the Pass — will become the first Native American Saint in 2012.

On Dec. 19, Pope Benedict XVI approved the miracle needed for the canonization ceremony. Before that happens, the Cardinals must support the pope’s decision in Rome.

Father Joseph Nguyen, pastor of the Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha churches in Banning, Beaumont and the Morongo reservation, said elevating Kateri Tekakwitha to sainthood would mean a lot to him and his parishioners.

“It’s a joyful occasion for us to celebrate and we would change the name from Blessed to Saint Kateri Tekakwitha,” said Nguyen.
