The 1st Thanksgiving joined past, present and future

Proclaimed President Kennedy in 1963, "As our power has grown, so has our peril. Today we give our thanks, most of all, for the ideals of honor and faith we inherit from our forefathers--for the decency of purpose, steadfastness of resolve and strength of will, for the courage and the humility, which they possessed and which we must seek every day to emulate. As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words but to live by them." more »

"A refugee crisis not seen since the Second World War" said Pope Francis

Please call your US Senators today and tell them that, "I stand with the Syrian refugees who are fleeing violence, and with Pope Francis, in welcoming them to the United States. I support the current vetting process. Please oppose the Senate version of HR 4038 that will effectively isolate both our nation and our sisters and brothers seeking to escape the ravages of war." more »
Remembering Jonas Salk at 101, a hero of our times

Writes Dr. Patrick Whelan of Catholic Democrats, reviewing books for America Magazine, "Two new biographies address almost saintly efforts to overcome deadly diseases, one of Jonas Salk, M.D., the other a biography of the international medical relief organization Doctors Without Borders. Each is a tale of success against seemingly insurmountable odds, the widespread admiration that followed and the subsequent envy and even ridicule by their competitors. This history is still being written, and not necessarily by the victors." more »


Please Read: US Catholic Bishops' "Faithful Citizenship"


"He gave us strength in time of trouble, wisdom in time of uncertainty, and sharing in time of happiness. He will always be by our side...[May he] be remembered simply as a good and decent man, who saw wrong and tried to right it, saw suffering and tried to heal it, saw war and tried to stop it. Those of us who loved him and who take him to his rest today, pray that what he was to us and what he wished for others will some day come to pass for all the world. As he said many times, in many parts of this nation, to those he touched and who sought to touch him:

Some men see things as they are and say why. I dream things that never were and say why not."

Sen Edward M. Kennedy (1932-2009)

"Today I say to you that the challenges we face are real. They are serious and they are many. They will not be met easily or in a short span of time. But know this, America: They will be met.

"On this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord.

"On this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn-out dogmas, that for far too long have strangled our politics."
