The Shroud of Turin - Scientists Can't Explain It

The Catholic Church is filled with miracles that cannot be explained by science.  One example is a host in Lanciano, Italy consecrated by a doubting priest that literally turned into flesh and blood in the 8th century, and which host can still be seen today.  Interestingly enough, the blood type in the host at Lanciano is the same as the blood type found on the Shroud of Turin.  What is the Shroud of Turin, you say?  Wikipedia tells us:
The Shroud of Turin or Turin Shroud (Italian: Sindone di Torino, Sacra Sindone) is a linen cloth bearing the image of a man who appears to have suffered physical trauma in a manner consistent with crucifixion. It is kept in the royal chapel of the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist in Turin, northern Italy. The image on the shroud is commonly associated with Jesus Christ, his crucifixion and burial. The origins of the shroud and its image are the subject of intense debate among scientists, theologians, historians and researchers. The Catholic Church has neither formally endorsed nor rejected the shroud, but in 1958 Pope Pius XII approved of the image in association with the Roman Catholic devotion to the Holy Face of Jesus.

The image on the shroud is much clearer in black-and-white negative than in its natural sepia color. The negative image was first observed in 1898, on the reverse photographic plate of amateur photographer Secondo Pia, who was allowed to photograph it while it was being exhibited in the Turin Cathedral. In 1978 a detailed examination was carried out by a team of American scientists called STURP. They found no reliable evidence of forgery, and called the question of how the image was formed "a mystery".

The Alternate Reality of the Mainstream Media

Why am I constantly going back to Ron Paul and how he is treated by the MSM and so-called conservative Republicans?  I do believe that Ron Paul is the best choice we have for president, but even if he should actually be elected, it still won't save our country.  It may give us a little more time, but the only thing that will save our country, and the whole world for that matter, is that the Catholic Church finally does what our Lady in the approved apparition of Fatima, has asked us to do, and that is to consecrate Russa to her immaculate heart

Our Lady asked that this consecration be done either in 1960 or upon the death of Sister Lucy, the only surviving seer of the 3 shepherd children involved in the Fatima apparitions, whichever came first.   Sister Lucy was still very much alive in 1960 (she did not die until 2005), and yet, even though the pope at that time, Pope John XXIII, fully acknowledged the legitimacy of Fatima and the request of our Lady to consecrate Russia to her immaculate heart, still refused to do it.  Many say that it was done by Pope John Paul II on May 13, 1982, exactly one year after he was shot.  But he never once mentioned the word "Russia", and he did not include the bishops of the world in the consecration, which must be done.  Blessed John Paul II consecrated the world to her immaculate heart "and those awaiting consecration."  That doesn't do it, and the condition of the world tells us it wasn't done.  Our Lady said that when the consecration was done, we would have peace in the world.  If not, Russia would continue to spread her errors.  You look around and tell me what is happening. 

Christmas - Bah, Humbug!

Hey, wait a minute - doesn't this blog say something about "Catholic?"  Isn't Christmas one of those big days with Catholics where people who never go to Church will actually show up because it is just that important?  Then what's with the "Bah, Humbug" stuff?  Oh yes, Christmas is a very important day to me, and one which I will celebrate joyfully and thankfully.  So what is my problem?

A lot of people get very upset about the secularization of Christmas.  But I have to say that I'm not overly bothered by those folks who refuse to say "Merry Christmas" and will become incensed if you so much as bring up the "Christ" part of Christmas.  They leave no doubt about what they do and don't believe.  I appreciate their honesty and forthrightness. 

Men's Rules for Women

This one is just for fun.

I have been married 11-1/2 years, and I love my husband dearly.  He is truly my best friend and I wouldn't trade him in for anything.  But the fact is, he is a man and I'm a woman (as it should be!), and that creates vast differences between us, and there are times when we drive each other crazy. 

Someone sent the following to me, and although you may have seen it, I wanted to share it.  I think it sets out very well what most men would love to say to women.

Vive la difference!

Why does the Establishment GOP Hate Ron Paul?

It is absolutely fascinating to watch the Establishment GOP running scared out of their britches over Ron Paul.  Why do they hate this man?  Wikipedia tells us this:  A native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Paul is a graduate of Gettysburg College and Duke University School of Medicine, where he earned his medical degree. He served as a flight surgeon in the United States Air Force from 1963 until 1968. He worked as an obstetrician and gynecologist during the 1960s and 1970s, delivering more than 4,000 babies, before entering politics in 1976. 

Sounds like a pretty down to earth guy to me.  Ron Paul has been married to his wife since 1957 (unlike Gingrich, who is on his 3rd wife) and has five children, one of whom, Dr. Rand Paul, is a United States senator.  According to University of Georgia political scientist Keith Poole, Ron Paul had the most conservative voting record of any member of Congress since 1937."  Yet, the King of Conservatives - Rush Limbaugh - absolutely hates Ron Paul and anyone who supports him.  Why doesn't Rush, who claims to be a conservative first and foremost, love Ron Paul?  Why instead does he call Ron Paul a kook and say Congressman Paul is the only unelectable GOP candidate?

The Myth of Hollywood Romance

Below is an article by Dr. Henry Makow.  From Wikipedia:  "Henry Makow (born November 12, 1949) is a Canadian author, conspiracy theorist and the inventor of the boardgame Scruples."  Dr. Makow is Jewish by birth but has basically rejected the Jewish religion.  He isn't Christian because he says that although he wishes he could, he cannot accept Jesus as God.  But he definitely celebrates Christian concepts and believes that Christians are the ones who can ultimately save the world.  He contends that the world is driven by a small group of people known as the Illuminati, who literally worship Satan.   These people include the Rothschilds, Rockefellers and Warburgs, among many others.  He contends that they drive everything in our society, the ultimate aim of which is to enslave and destroy us. 

There was a time when I would have thought he was a complete lunatic.  But then I started looking into Fatima, and especially into the meaning of Our Lady's statement that: "Russia will spread its errors throughout the world, raising up wars and persecutions against the Church.  The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various nations will be annhiliated."  That's some pretty heavy stuff, and it led me to the New World Order, which is actually very old.  The NWO is a group of people, driven by Satan, who want to destroy all religion and all national borders and completely dominate the world.  Most all of the world's leaders are involved in it, knowingly or unknowingly. 

The Illuminati are using various methods to accomplish their goals.  Almost everything we see in society is manipulated to destroy us, and that most definitely includes sex.  Below is an excellent article by Dr. Makow showing just how society, i.e. Satan, has perverted sex from the life-giving force it was created to be by God, to instead a life-destroying force.

This article seems to be written mainly for men, but I think women will undoubtedly benefit from it.

Help Yourself to Jesus - A Definite Rant

One of the great things about living in New York City is that there is an abundance of churches.  It's hard to go more than just a few blocks without running into one.  On Sundays I normally go to Mass at one church that has another Mass shortly afterwards, and it is very difficult to stay and pray after Mass.  So lately I have been walking a few blocks to another stunningly beautiful church.  I don't want to give the name of the church or location just in case the wrong people get this information.  This church has a 9:30 Mass and then the church is usually empty until the next Mass at 12:30.

The church was built in about 1886 and has not been "renovated."  It retains its beautiful high altar, pictured:
