Here is Bulletin_2015-11-22
This is where we were last evening and that explains why this post is late. Our granddaughter received the Holy Sacrament of Confirmation at St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church. So, that makes two grandchildren confirmed in as many months, and there will be many more over the course of the coming years. We pray for all the Confirmandi and ask the Holy Spirit to guide and strengthen them – they are the next generation of the Church Militant.
I chose not to crop the upper portion of this picture. That is because the painting of the beheading of St. John the Baptist clearly illustrates what is expected of those confirmed in the faith. Whether it is the sanctity of marriage or the many current signs of sinful cultural decline noted by Bishop Loverde, our Catholic doctrines are bound to run contrary to the practices of society and the mandates of the government. Confirmation is not just an evening in a red robe, it is a lifetime of spreading the Gospel no matter what the personal cost.
Analysis and Commentary
There is insufficient time this morning to address several worthwhile topics for comment. So, we will provide just one reminder,
CCHD: Perhaps you received a postcard concerning the CCHD collection this week. We did not send those postcards, but we commend and support the effort. If you have the time, please read the following: CCHD Gives $65,000 to Group Led By Donor to Pro-Abortion and Same-Sex ‘Marriage’ Causes
