LEST WE FORGET WHERE WE COME FROM

It’s very interesting for those who love history to just get back and do the disectional analysis of events, more so the church history or the history of the church depending from where you are standing.

We have to begin by understanding what Christendom is all  about and what it all involves.

“Christendom is about economic, political, social life as inspired by Christian principles.

That is in the modern trend of events it’s ending  and witnessing it die.

The symptoms seem to be before  our very eyes: the breakup of the family, divorce, abortion, immorality, general dishonesty.

We take it for granted, we get used to things, and almost accept them as the rule.

Despite the decline blaring today, isn’t that a rule? Today, how many Catholics accept the counter message to Humanae Vitae?

The press that we read, the television that we see, is in no instance inspired by Christian principles.

Celibacy, Sex, Crime and Everything in between

Recent news stories have picked up at a very high speed. The news sells when it's about the priests on matters of sex, celibacy and all the packagings in that line and frequency.

The church has to examine the sickness of all in the Church. If the crimes were committed, it shows someone, somewhere slept on his job. Sometimes the more the crime the more the transfers.

WHEN BEING A FRIEND OF THE SOCIETY OF JESUS BECOMES A LAW

Every action done in company ought to be with some sign of respect to those that are present.When in company, put not your hands to any part of the body not usually discovered.Show nothing to your friend that may affright him.In the presence of others, sing not to yourself with a humming voice, or drum with your fingers or feet.If you cough, sneeze, sigh or yawn, do it not loud but privately, and speak not in your yawning, but put your handkerchief or hand before your face and turn aside.Sleep not when others speak, sit not when others stand, speak not when you should hold your peace, walk not on when others stop.Put not off your clothes in the presence of others, nor go out of your chamber half dressed.At play and attire, it’s good manners to give place to the last comer, and affect not to speak louder than ordinary.Spit not into the fire, nor stoop low before it; neither put your hands into the flames to warm them, nor set your feet upon the fire, especially if there be meat before …
