The first thing Mother Teresa did every morning

Abraham Accords signed at White House, President Trump brings 3 nations together



History was made today at the White House as leaders from Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain met with President Trump and signed the Abraham Accords, which will normalize diplomatic relations between Israel and the two Arab nations.
 
Before this summer, only two peace deals involving Israel had been negotiated in the last 72 years, with the most recent coming in 1994. During the past month alone, President Trump has helped broker two such agreements

 
“Today the world sees that [these nations] are choosing cooperation over conflict, friendship over enmity, prosperity over poverty, and hope over despair,” President Trump said.
 
They are choosing a future in which Arabs and Israelis, Muslims, Jews, and Christians can live together, pray together, and dream together.”
 
The first steps between Israel and both Bahrain and the UAE are an exchange of embassies and ambassadors, as well as the start of direct commercial flights between countries.
 
Each leader spoke today about the significance of the Abraham Accords in the pursuit of enduring peace in the Middle East:

  • “This day is a pivot of history. It heralds a new dawn of peace,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel said.
     
  • “Peace requires courage, and shaping the future requires knowledge,” Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan of the United Arab Emirates said. “We have come today to tell the world that this is our approach.”
     
  • “Today is a truly historic occasion—a moment of hope and opportunity for all the peoples of the Middle East,” Abdullatif bin Rashid Al-Zayani of Bahrain said.

 
When President Trump took office, the Middle East was fraught with turmoil. Today, a geopolitical transformation is underway. As more and more Arab countries begin to establish direct ties with Israel, the region’s prospects for peace, economic growth, technological innovation, and opportunities for young people will only improve.
 
“The people of the Middle East will no longer allow hatred of Israel to be fomented as an excuse for radicalism or extremism,” President Trump said.

September 15, 2020: Our Lady of Sorrows/15 de septiembre de 2020: Bienaventurada Virgen Maria de los Dolores The Seven Sorrows of Mary




The Seven Sorrows of Mary

 

The First Sorrow: The Prophesy of Simeon.

Then Simeon blessed them and said to his mother Mary, “This child is destined for the falling and the rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be opposed so that the inner thoughts of many will be revealed—and a sword will pierce your own soul too.”

Luke 2:34-35

Let us consider the affliction which Mary’s immaculate heart endured at the prophesy of holy Simeon. May we more perfectly follow Christ, and thereby comfort Mary’s heart.

Hail Mary…

 

The Second Sorrow: The Flight Into Egypt

Now after they had left, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Get up, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you; for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him.” Then Joseph got up, took the child and his mother by night, and went to Egypt,

Matthew 2:13-14

Let us consider the anguish which Mary endured having to flee with her dutiful spouse Joseph, and the Child Jesus to Egypt. May we be attentive to the needs of the poor and the oppressed, and thereby comfort Mary’s heart.

Hail Mary…

 

The Third Sorrow: The Loss of the Child Jesus

When the festival was ended and they started to return, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem, but his parents did not know it. Assuming that he was in the group of travelers, they went a day’s journey. Then they started to look for him among their relatives and friends. When they did not find him, they returned to Jerusalem to search for him.

Luke 2:43-45

Let us consider the anxiety which Mary endured at the loss of her dear child. May we always look for Jesus and following his example submit ourselves to the Father’s will, and thereby comfort Mary’s heart.

Hail Mary…

 

The Fourth Sorrow:

The Meeting of Jesus and Mary on the Way of the Cross

A great number of the people followed him, and among them were women who were beating their breasts and wailing for him.

Luke 23:27

Let us consider the grief which Mary endured at the sight of her son so beaten and wounded on the way of the cross. So protective was she of her child Jesus, her heart broke that she could no longer protect him. May we, with humble and contrite hearts, pick up our crosses and follow Christ, and thereby comfort Mary’s heart.

Hail Mary…

 

The Fifth Sorrow: The Crucifixion

There they crucified him… [and] standing near the cross of Jesus were his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing beside her, he said to his mother, “Woman, here is your son.” Then he said to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” And from that hour the disciple took her into his own home.

John 19:18;25-26

Let us consider the bitter agony which Mary endured standing at the foot of the cross gazing at her crucified son, who knowing that he would soon be dead gave us his sorrowful Mother. May we leave the ways of sin and persevere in the faith, and thereby comfort Mary’s heart.

Hail Mary…

 

The Sixth Sorrow: The Taking Down of the Body of Jesus from the Cross

Joseph of Arimathea, a respected member of the council, who was also himself waiting expectantly for the kingdom of God, went boldly to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Then Pilate wondered if he were already dead; and summoning the centurion, he asked him whether he had been dead for some time. When he learned from the centurion that he was dead, he granted the body to Joseph. Then Joseph bought a linen cloth, and taking down the body, wrapped it in the linen cloth…

Mark 15:43-46

Let us consider the miserable desolation which Mary endured as she held the bloody and lifeless body of Christ. No one could comfort her, for Christ was her comfort. The light of the world, the spotless lamb, her innocent child, sacrificed for our sins, and laid upon the altar of her hands. May we, with open arms accept the ocean of Mercy which Christ opened up for us, and thereby comfort Mary’s heart.

Hail Mary…

 

The Seventh Sorrow: The Burial of Jesus

Now there was a garden in the place where he was crucified, and in the garden there was a new tomb in which no one had ever been laid. And so, because it was the Jewish day of Preparation, and the tomb was nearby, they laid Jesus there.

John 19:41-42

Let us consider the sorrowful solitude of Mary, as she buried her only son. May we be always willing to keep her company as good and faithful brothers and sisters in Christ, loving God and each other, and thereby comfort Mary’s heart.

Hail Mary…


Fr. James Altman: You cannot be Catholic & a Democrat. Period.



Priest warns US voters: ‘You cannot be Catholic and be a Democrat’

Fr. James Altman told Catholics who vote Democrat to 'repent of your support of that party and its platform or face the fires of hell.

 

August 31, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — A priest has delivered a powerful rebuke to the Democratic Party, highlighting the hypocrisy of the Catholic hierarchy, clergy, and laity who support its “platform.”

The video of Fr. James Altman’s admonition has gone viral.

“When politics and politicians act in an immoral way, we most certainly do have the duty and obligation to speak up about it,” explained Altman, a priest of the Diocese of La Crosse, Wisconsin. 

He urged his listeners to call out leftist politicians who complain about pro-life Catholics’ involvement in politics to say: “You’re a bunch of hypocrites!,” pointing out that the “hyper-confusion-spreading heretic” Fr. James Martin, S.J. had just been prominently featured at the recent Democratic National Convention.  

“I guess it’s OK for James Martin to spout off for the Democrats on their national stage, but God forbid if a priest speaks out against their godless platform,” declared Altman.

Repent of supporting the Democratic Party, or ‘face the fires of hell’

“Here is a memo to clueless baptized Catholics,” said Altman. “You can not be Catholic and be a Democrat. Period!”

“Their party platform absolutely is against everything the Catholic Church teaches,” said Altman. “So just quit pretending that you’re Catholic [if you] vote Democrat.”

“Repent of your support of that party and its platform or face the fires of hell,” he warned.

Silent clergy are ‘gutless cowards’

Altman said Catholic clergy who refuse to speak up and condemn the Democratic party’s support for abortion “gutless cowards.” 

He went on to assert that in 2008 and 2012, no Catholic voted for Barack Obama to be president. “There were a lot of pretenders, a lot of imposters, a lot of people masquerading as Catholics — laity and clergy alike — [but] there were zero faithful Catholics who voted for that godless politician who had the audacity to blaspheme and say, ‘God bless Planned Parenthood,’ the most racist organization on the face of this planet, founded to wipe out black babies.”

“Wilton Gregory, figure it out!” he urged, addressing his comment to Washington, D.C.’s archbishop, who had attacked the nation’s “best pro-life president and his Catholic wife,” while simultaneously supporting the Marxist Black Lives Matter organization.

‘Shame on the hierarchy!’

“It’s no wonder the faithful have lost confidence in the bishops, because so many of them did such a horrible job on the [priest sexual predation] scandal,” observed Altman. “And still to this day [they] don’t say anything about the worst miscreants, but they will get all over a priest, instantly, who simply speaks the truth.”

“Shame on the hierarchy who covers up truth through a conspiracy of fear.” 

Altman said that some in the hierarchy are “proud and arrogant” and need to “straighten up and straighten out this mess they created ... before they lose yet more faithful to the fastest growing denomination in the United States, ex-Catholics.”  

“The reason why we are seeing the signs of the times,” said Altman, “is that way too many people do not know God,” because “shepherds of the Church haven’t taught them.”
