God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Papal stories....

There's a tale making the rounds concerning an exchange between the new Pontiff and a Swiss Guard:

I read this and think of some of the other stories surfacing about this Pope's humility; how he personally checked out of his hotel room where he'd been staying prior to his selection, how the man who delivered his newspaper to him every morning received a personal phone call to cancel the subscription (It's a long commute from Argentina to Rome just to deliver the daily fish wrap). How he wades into the crowds of Rome to press the flesh, something I'm sure gives his head of security nightmares (who would want to be the man in charge when the Pope gets assassinated? Thats not exactly a great way to become a historical figure.).

While not commenting one way or another on the validity of these stories, I'll note how quickly they've spread. Even the secular media is picking up some of them.

As Sonny & Cher used to sing, "'s the little things that mean a lot".

Does the spread of these stories show a hunger for this sort of conduct? Is our culture so fixated on carnality and violence that simple gestures of humanity are sought out and avidly disseminated?

If the answers to these questions is "Yes", then what is the public stage being set for?
