Burke and Bannon scheming for a new church-state liaison

In a Vatican conference organized in part by renegade American Cardinal Ray Burke, Trump advisor Steve Bannon said, "We’re at the very beginning stages of a very brutal and bloody conflict, of which if the people in this room, the people in the church, do not bind together and really form what I feel is an aspect of the church militant, to really be able to not just stand with our beliefs, but to fight for our beliefs against this new barbarity that’s starting, that will completely eradicate everything that we’ve been bequeathed over the last 2,000, 2,500 years." more »

Catholics speak out against illegal Trump order banning Muslim refugees

Writes Sr. Maureen Fiedler, "I want to hear from the Catholic bishops — loud and clear. Not just a press release. I want to hear bold, public statements denouncing this move by Trump. The bishops have long been positive in welcoming immigrants and defending their rights; now is the time for them to shout out what they believe. I note that many pastors and rabbis have already denounced this Trump order. And of course for Jews, this stirs memories of the late 1930s, when the U.S. refused entry to Jews who later went on to their deaths in Nazi concentration camps. It is past time for the Catholic bishops to speak out against Trump's policies, and this is their opportunity to prove that they put morality ahead of politics." 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."
