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.

EWTN NEWSLINK - 2013-02-11 - Pope announces he will resign at the end of...



This news was quite a shock. There had been speculation recently about the Pope's declining health but since much of it was in the mainstream press i really just dismissed any notion that the Pope would resign. Infact when I first heard it on the radio this morning as I was getting ready for Mass I thought for sure there would be a quick denial from the Holy See but instead what we got was a quick confirmation.

I have mixed feelings as I sit here in my office. I admire Pope Benedict for his humility but mourn the loss of his presence on the world stage. He has such a clear view of the threats we face both to tour Church and to the world at large from teh dictatorship of relativism promulgated by the false religion of secularism.  I, for one, will miss him.
