Today is...

Today is:

The 24th Sunday in Ordinary Time.
The 15th Sunday after Pentecost.
The Feast of St. Robert Bellarmine,
patron saint of catechists http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/02411d.htm
The Feast of the Impression of the
Stigmata on St. Francis of Assisi http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/06221a.htm

The following edifying passage is from the old Catholic Encyclopedia entry on St. Francis:
"Writing to a certain minister in the order, Francis says: 'Should there be a brother anywhere in the world who has sinned, no matter how great soever his fault may be, let him not go away after he has once seen thy face without showing pity towards him; and if he seek not mercy, ask him if he does not desire it. And by this I will know if you love God and me.'"

And by the way, today, Sept. 17, is also "Halfway to St. Patrick's Day." St. Patrick, pray for us!

St Francis of Assisi to the Mohammedan leader Sultan Malek-el-Kamil: "We have come to preach faith in Jesus Christ to you, that you will renounce Mohammed, that wicked slave of the devil, and obtain everlasting life."

Evidently St. Francis of Assisi did not "have the highest respect for Islam" as it is said does Pope Benedict XVI!

Dear Jehu,

Thank you for pointing out that St. Francis of Assisi could speak strongly as well as softly!

This reminds me that St. Francis Xavier spoke strongly, to say the least, to a powerful Japanese warlord by admonishing him that pederasty is a terrible evil.

Saints are tough cookies!

St. Francis and St. Francis, pray for us!

ATTENTION, ATTENTION!

The CRCOA Knights of Columbus Website is now up and running!

Go to crcoa.com, click on "Knights of Columbus", then click on the State.

you are interested in that is listed, then just follow the instructions.

You will find there the names of pro-abortion and or sodomite public figures

who are still Knights, a picture of them with details such as NARAL and

NACGLM ratings, Council number, and a link to their personal Websites.

We are looking to find out information on more pro-abortion and or sodomite public figures who are Knights. If you have such information please email it to: president@crcoa.com. Eventually we believe we will have at least one such referrence for each State!

God bless, yours in Their Hearts,
Kenneth M. Fisher, Founder & Chairman Concerned Roman Catholics of America, Inc.

Quintero,

The way you talk about St. Patrick, one would think you were Irish!
