Feast of the Holy Innocents

Today is the Feast Day for the Holy Innocents; remembering those children who lost their lives during Herod's attempt to eliminate any rivals after the Magi's announcement of the birth of a King.

This year, the feast has renewed meaning with to the unbelievable lost of life in Newtown, Connecticut.  Children, who lost their lives in the midst of a society that promotes violence in all its forms.  A society where anything goes, except for those who have faith in God and want to live by traditional Christian principals.

May these new saints in heaven pray for peace in their families lives and a renewal of faith throughout the world.

Quote of the Day

"A simple and upright soul does not see evil in anything, 
because evil only exists in impure hearts 
and not in inanimate objects."

The Story of a Soul

She Weeps

December 17

O Wisdom, O holy Word of God, 
you govern all creation with your strong yet gentle care.  
Come and show your people the way to salvation.

Skyfall: James Bond and Catholicism

After seeing the new James Bond movie, I was amazed by the overt suggestion that James Bond's family was Catholic (at least it was overt to me).  So I was happy to see a video of someone I consider one the great Catholic Apologist who really breaks down that theme in this movie.

WARNING: Spoiler Alert (you may want to go see the film before watching the video).
