George Washington Makes Thanksgiving a National Holiday in 1789

America, America, God shed His grace on thee,
and crown thy good with brotherhood
from sea to shining sea.
Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor, and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me "to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness."

Thank God on Thanksgiving for all Your Blessings, Especially Your Family!

Corfman's Story about Judge Roy Moore & the Post's "Investigation" Continue to Unravel

The Washington Post & Its Reporters
Court Documents Raise Significant Questions About Leigh Corfman’s Accusations Against Roy Moore

The article above reveals exactly how mendacious the "reporters" at the Washington Post really are. Let's presume for a second that they at least thought Leigh Corfman was credible. They accept her 40-year-old story at face value. Did they investigate before they went public? Doesn't seem so. They knew the mom was in court in the time period because they researched the court records. But didn't they read them? Breitbart apparently did which makes the Post investigation either shoddy or deliberately dishonest:

It's the Democrats Trash Politics of Character Assassination!

Me too!
The Trashing of Judge Roy Moore

I really urge you to read the article. Roy Moore is a victim of a concerted effort to use any lie or innuendo to prevent him from becoming a U.S. Senator. The Democrats foam at the mouth over him because of his Christianity and support for traditional values, and the establishment Republicans hate him almost as much. In Virginia the establishment helped deep-six both Ken Cuccinelli when he ran for governor and Bob Marshall in the recent election for state delegate against transgender Dan(ica) Roem. They hate anyone, particularly Christians, whom they can't control.

Fr. Tom Collins Pegs It Once Again with "It's Okay, We're Democrats!"

And we' really love and respect women!
It makes sense, after all, the sexual sins of prominent Democrats can apparently be washed away by the blood of millions of pre-born babies butchered in the womb by Planned Parenthood and its sadistic allies. As long as these predators support PP their many sexual sins can not only be pardoned, but extolled as both normal and normative.

As an afterthought, I am just waiting for some Moslem men to sue female co-workers for sexual harassment and cultural/religious insensitivity for wearing immodest attire at work. A sympathetic activist judge could rule that the refusal of a woman to wear a hijab or a burqa in public to be a form of sexual harassment/provocation, since about a fifth of the world’s male population are Moslems, accustomed to strict standards of modesty and chastity for women.

Red Rose Rescuers Walk Free...For Now

Praised be to God! Please pray for these apostles to the unborn.

Catholic priests, activists walk free after trial for pro-life witness inside abortion center

Have You Seen the "Hate Has No Home Here" Signs"?

Last week two of these signs on wires appeared on the lawns of two of my neighbors.  We live in a small cluster of homes which are very close together in the planned community of Reston, VA.  It is our hope that the signs will disappear quickly, since from my own interpretation of the "Design Guidelines' of Reston Association, such signs are not allowed.  However, when you consider that "planned communities" such as Reston have a smell of socialism about them to start with,

Here's a "Gotta Read" by Robert Knight on the Millennial Embrace of Socialism

Socialism’s predictable outcomes:
KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov predicted what's happening
25 years ago calling it "ideological subversion." 
Despite several horrifying current examples of nations in the grip of socialism, many of America’s millennials are happily skipping down the socialist Yellow Brick Road toward an Oz that could never be. 
It isn’t just Bernie Sanders’ young legions of admirers. A recent survey showed that a whopping 44 percent of young people favor socialism over capitalism, with seven percent opting for outright communism and seven percent more for fascism. It adds up to a majority wanting total government control over the economy — and their lives, if they stop to think about it. 

VOICE: This is what community organizing money buys!

VOICE Celebrates State Victories

Virginians Organized for Interfaith Community Engagement (VOICE) is all about liberalism. They don't do charity, they are a liberal lobby group, an affiliate of the Industrial Areas Foundation founded by Saul Alinsky. Consider that as you read their self-congratulatory message. They are all about manipulating "We the People" so they support the liberal agenda. At one VOICE meeting some clueless soul asked about fighting abortion and the group booed. Yup! They defend the "little guy" but not the littlest. Babies in the womb can't vote after all. And VOICE is all about getting out the vote for liberal causes.

Sunday Meditation: How did you use your talents today?

The gospel today was the parable of the three servants and the talents. The parable of the talents always gets me thinking about how the Lord wants me to use the gifts He's given me. He certainly gave me a heart for motherhood which is what got me involved in the pro-life movement. The little ones threatened and marked for death always made me think of my own children. How could I not be doing everything I could to save them when they were no different from my own babies? And so I rescued and educated and prayed and picketed and sidewalk counseled, etc. I still do a little of that, but I don't have the same level of energy I used to have and don't do as much of it. Also, thank God, there's no abortion mill nearby that is continually pricking my conscience. That was one of the greatest outcomes of our decision to "flee the city" in 2002! I traveled to northern Virginia every week for several years to counsel at pregnancy help center, but after several years decided it was just too far.

Well that was fast: Dan(ica) Roem's candidacy was REALLY about picking Virginians pockets for transgender surgery!

Delegate elect Dan(ica) Roem and governor elect
  Ralph Northam, a deadly duo for Virginia! "When
the righteous rule the people rejoice, but when
the wicked rule, the people groan."  Prov. 29:2
Pray for poor Virginia, hostage to liberal voters!

Dan(ica) Roem ran in Prince
William County as the champion of fixing roads -- Route 28 in particular. But it appears now that his real first agenda is "fixing" the bodies of transgenders to match their delusions. Is anyone surprised?

And who do you think will ultimately pay for this? The insurance companies will pass the cost of this unnecessary body mutilation to its customers. Pushing the LGBTQ agenda was always what Dan(ica) Roem had in mind. He has no interest in the needs of Virginia's families! This is an invitation to deepen your prayer life for our state and our poor country! With leaders like these, expect the whirlwind.

The Collection for the Campaign for Human Development: BOYCOTT IT!

Alinsky bucksBut don't ignore it. Put "Alinsky bucks" in the basket to send the bishops and your pastor a message.

And you might also send the week's parish donation to another worthy Catholic charity as a protest for the parish taking up the collection.

The Soap Opera Continues: Accusations Collapse, Allred Stonewalls, and Women Rally for Judge Moore

Women rallied today for Judge Roy Moore at the
Alabama state capitol. Join all these women
in prayer for Alabama's Senate election and
for Judge Roy Moore.
Ah...what a soap opera! Makes you want to interview the script writer.

The former manager of the Gadsen Mall says he has no recollection of any ban on Roy Moore at the mall. But hey, the mainstream media tells us that "some people are saying" and "there are rumors" that he harassed teenage girls. Sounds like the Salem witch trials.

Think about it. Yes, Roy Moore dated older teens with the permission of their parents. He says he did. Why shouldn't he? At 27 St. Thomas More married Jane Colt who was only 17. The women say he occasionally hugged or kissed them. Wow! What a strange thing for a young man to do on a date!

"The Devil Resides in the Vatican." Fr. Gabriel Amorth

In 2010, the pope's exorcist, Fr. Gabriel
Amorth (RIP) said, "The devil resides in the
-- and that was before Pope Francis!
What would Fr. Amorth say today?
My friend Betty from Life Tree sent out a message that should make every Catholic ask what is happening to the Pontifical Academy for Life (PAV). Pope Francis gutted the old organization which was filled with orthodox, pro-life Catholics and created a new academy filled with individuals committed to moral evils, among them those who advocate abortion and euthanasia (Nigel Biggar for one). Makes sense, eh, -- a Catholic organization that invites those advocating the devil's agenda to be members? Well, that is indeed the "new" strategy under Pope Francis where people like population control extremist Paul Ehrlich is invited to speak at conferences.

Here's Betty's email with my observations in red:
The message is changing at the PAV faster than a speeding bullet! Less than six months after Drs Kathy Foley and Daniel Sulmasy (George Soros Project on Death in America scholars) became new members the Pontifical Academy for Life read what is happening now! The Vatican is including more and more enemies of life in its conferences and in its academies. Most dicasteries at the Vatican can no longer be trusted to stand for Catholic truth.

Please, in your mercy, pray for Fr. Gerry Creedon who died yesterday.

Fr. Gerry Creedon died yesterday. I was not a member of his fan club as any regular reader of this blog knows. 

He doesn't need a fan club now, he needs prayer warriors. And I do try to be one of those. So I invite my readers to join me in offering Masses, rosaries, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, acts of penance, and other prayers and devotions for the repose of his soul. Eulogies are no good to him whatsoever.

May God have mercy on Fr. Creedon and on all of us and give us the grace of final repentance.
