Don't accept the codswallop!

St. Francis was not an effete flower child who went skipping around Italy with a blue bird on his shoulder and a St. Bernard at his knee...

St. Joseph was not aimlessly wandering around Bethlehem. He  went there to pay his taxes....

St. Catherine of Sienna was not a feminst...


St. Therese did not drift around her convent looking dreamy. She was actually a warrior who offered her incredible suffering for the salvation of souls, specially those of priests...

And no, Brooklyn Diocese, Our Lord did not have an overly precious hair cut and skinny girl jeans.
 
 
Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio, meet Archbishop Fulton Sheen who once said, “The only way to win audiences is to tell people about the life and death of Christ. Every other approach is a waste.”

Good grief! Does one of the ads show him smoking a joint in Greenwich Village? I'm surprised they didn't put him in a tie-dyed tunic. Some ideas are too ridiculous to consider. This was one of them!

And Amen.

The last thing our Lord Jesus Christ was is man's definition of ... "cool"

When disaster strikes and you get that awful phone call at 3AM, you arent looking for a Bobby Darren, you are looking for the Good Shepherd.
