Holy Saturday

ADULT vs. CHILD: CLICK https://www.facebook.com/watch?v=318979760322636 [3:07] to hear Ted Cruz respond to a leftist at Yale who accused him of being a racist for questioning Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s judicial record.

CLIMATE: CLICK https://rumble.com/v10vx1t-listen-closely-to-what-janet-yellen-says-and-youll-realize-whats-coming.html [:32] to hear Treasury Sec’y Janet Yellen double down on destroying our economy in the name of “saving the planet.

EGARD: The push for transgender rights is no longer about equality, it’s now a cleverly crafted lie that comes at the expense of women,” says Ilan Srulovicz, the owner of Égard Watches. The Florida-based boutique timepiece and jewelry company launched a campaign called “What is a woman?” that celebrates womanhood as a birth right and takes issue with transgender athletes in sports.

END TIMES: Churchill Park United Church of Winnipeg recently held a “Crossing Over Ceremony” for a member suffering from ALS. Friends and family visited the woman in the sanctuary to say their good-byes while a lethal chemical injection took effect. The minister who presided said, “It was like a wake.” Yeah, cuz it’s not at all creepy for the dead person to actually attend her own wake, much less to be ALIVE at the beginning of it!

I looked at the church’s website. It apparently started out as an amalgamation of a Presbyterian and a Methodist church that I’m guessing were both starving for members … maybe because they don’t preach the Gospel? Just sayin’. The site features a cross-inside-a-swirly-rainbow logo and lots left-wing buzz words like “affirming” and “relevant”, but no mention of Jesus, God, or the Bible. But hey, they offer “barrier free” facilities … to the “double-vaccinated.”

FAUXTUS: Outnumbered talks about Biden and how awful his administration is. [8:52] – CLICK https://rumble.com/v10zxt4-biden-finishes-speech-turns-around-to-shake-hands-with-nobody-in-sad-moment.html [:29] to see just the clip of Biden finish his speech, then turn around to shake hands with nobody and finally wander off the stage where apparently nobody is prepared to meet with or guide him.

FLORIDA: Gov. DeSantis has signed into law a bill prohibiting abortions in the Sunshine State after 15 weeks gestation. Fifteen weeks gestation is equivalent to thirteen weeks pregnant. It marks the end of the first trimester.

At this point, the fetus has all of his/her physical features, organs and body parts. The liver is making red blood cells, which the heart is circulating throughout the fetus’ body. The bones are formed and the pituitary gland is secreting hormones. The little one has hair, fingernails and fingerprints. He/she can move around within the uterus and is swallowing and urinating amniotic fluid.

I NEED HELP: CLICK https://www.facebook.com/719570934/videos/461107995681814/ [1:58] to learn what this symbol means and why we should all know it and teach it to our kids and grandkids. Stranger danger and stop-drop-and-roll are important, but we also need to teach our kids as young as possible to be able to recite their full names, addresses, and phone numbers, how and when to dial 911 and how and when to use this hand signal.

On April 10, the hand signal was instrumental in freeing a young woman from her violent boyfriend who had smacked her around and threatened her with a screwdriver if she tried to leave him. Thank God both she and the guy she signaled to both knew what the hand sign meant. Her captor was apprehended and has been charged with aggravated kidnapping and aggravated domestic assault.

ILLINOIS: Apologies for the graphic, but I didn’t – and doubted you would – realize how awful this man was without seeing an actual sample. And I’m pretty sure this was posted at the link below because it was the least offensive thing he’s put out there!

Preschool teacher Tell Williams IV was uninvited to speak at a state Pre-K and Kindergarten conference this week after it came out that Williams has posted nearly 200 pornographic videos and photos of himself on the internet.

KENTUCKY: The Kentucky legislature has overturned Gov. Beshear’s veto to banning biological men from playing girl’s sports. Kentucky has become the 15th state to protect the integrity of athletic competition for our daughters.

LENTEN MEDITATION: From Catholic Answers – Jesus’ descent into hell means that Jesus “sojourned in the realm of the dead prior to his resurrection” (the Catechism 632). Like all men, Jesus experienced death, and thus his soul joined others in this realm. But as the Catechism points out, “he descended there as Savior” (CCC 632) and preached the good news to the spirits imprisoned there (1 Pet. 3:19).

Does this mean Jesus descended into hell to deliver the damned? Does this mean Jesus destroyed the hell of damnation? No. Scripture often uses the term hell – Sheol in Hebrew and Hades in Greek – to refer to the abode of the dead, which consisted of both the righteous and the unrighteous who were deprived of the vision of God.

But this doesn’t mean their experience of that realm was identical. Jesus made this clear in his parable of the poor man and Lazarus (Luke 16:22-26). The Jews affectionately referred to the righteous abode as “Abraham’s bosom.”

It is these spirits to whom Jesus preached the good news. “It is precisely these holy souls, who awaited their Savior in Abraham’s bosom, whom Christ the Lord delivered when he descended into hell” (CCC 633).

MICHAEL SUSSMANN: A judge has ruled that the criminal prosecution of a Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer charged with lying to the FBI during the Trump-Russia investigation can move forward. The trial is scheduled to begin on May 16 in Washington’s federal court.

Sussmann is one of three people charged so far by special counsel John Durham. Kevin Clinesmith, a former FBI lawyer, pleaded guilty to altering an email and received probation. Igor Danchenko, a Russian analyst and source of information for Christopher Steele, was charged in November with lying to the FBI.

NO TOUCHING: [4:49] – This is interesting and funny, but I am left wondering about ‘rona policies in those places where Canadians and Americans are basically isolated from their own nations. My Canadian cousin refuses the vaxxx and is consequently not allowed to cross the border. And we can’t go visit her for the same reason.

  2. “Crossing Over Ceremony”

    This is a very hard comment for me to write. But I will.

    When Mom died last August at 101, it wasn’t from the fall that broke her hip. It wasn’t from the successful hip replacement surgery. The surgery was doubtless hard on her, but before the fall she was clear-minded and ambulatory (albeit always carefully with a walker) — she had just happily gone out to a nice lunch with our daughter the day she fell. We expected her to come home and begin working on her recovery with her excellent therapist. Then my sister showed up, and called me from the hospital, saying Mom had “made her end of life decisions.” Within a week Mom was dead. I daren’t say more about it. I was not in charge. There was nothing I could do about it but watch her die.

    It’s hard to admit how far over I once was to the side of abortion-and-euthanasia Margaret-Sanger attitudes, considering how pro-life I’ve become. What used to seem like hard but necessary choices I now believe, there’s always alternatives. Needless to say, I’ve spent a lot of time talking with Mr Jesus about it all, and will continue to do so, for the rest of my life.

      Without Him, we are nothing more than high IQ animals for whom senseless suffering is pure evil.

      Dear Lord, I pray that Mindful’s mom met You after her body expired and that she chose You over whatever else she once thought mattered more. And, Lord, if she’s in Purgatory now, send her an angel to escort her to a place of refreshment and grant Mindful the comfort of knowing they will be together again some day in Your Kingdom. Amen. And Amen.
