ARIZONA: A star witness of Kari Lake’s has testified shared that a very large portion of the Maricopa County ballots were printed on the wrong size paper which jammed the tabulating machines on Election Day.

CATHOLIC: [9:45] – Please offer up your prayers, rosaries, etc. for this brave and holy priest. I have no doubt that he has been assaulted in this most egregious way purely out of politics. There’s a petition on his behalf at the LifeSiteNews link below.

Speaking of which, I had a pro-Bergoglio priest tell me, in all seriousness, that reading LifeSiteNews was putting my eternal soul in jeopardy, because, according to him, criticizing the pontiff is a mortal sin. Ah, no. Saint Catherine of Siena was quite vocal about her pontiff’s failings and she’s not only been canonized, but also named a Doctor of the Church! She also appears to have been active in the politics of the time, so … hmmm.

JUNK SCIENCE: [4:12] – A recent study, conducted by the Commonwealth Fund, claims that in U.S. states where abortion have been restricted or banned, women and infants mortality rates have gone up. Michael New, Assistant Professor of Social Research at Catholic University of America and National Review Contributor, explains why the study is “junk study” and why the opposite is true.

HE PERSISTED: Two of the 50 something public (PUBLIC) libraries that host Drag Queen Story Hours, but refused Kirk Cameron space for a faith-based story hour, have reversed their decisions.

I hope they realized that their position of denying me a story hour reading was not only unfair and illegal, but that we would all be better off if we listened to each other’s perspectives,” he said.

MARY’S MIDWIFE: Aleteia writes, “Luke tells us plainly, ‘And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem … And while they were there, the time came for her to be delivered’ (Luke 2: 4-6).” IOW, it is likely that Mary and Joseph arrived in Bethlehem ahead of the birth and had ample time to prepare for her delivery. I’m relieved to know this, since I have often imagined how horrible it would have been to endure labor contractions while riding a donkey!

Another thing I’m relieved to learn is that Joseph likely had time to seek out a local midwife. In The Protoevangelium of James, a non-canonical text that dates from about AD145, Joseph seeks out and finds a midwife who delivers the baby, puts Him to Mary’s breast, then marvels at the miracle of a virgin giving birth. Aleteia also notes, “Ancient Orthodox and Byzantine icons recall this truth and often feature Mary’s midwife in the corner of the icon, bathing the newborn Christ child.”

REPARATIONS: “People of African slave descent shouldn’t really point at historical UK. They should better start with today’s current problem – according to the Global Slavery Index, at least 40 million people are still slaves these days, and (oops) modern slavery is worst in Africa, followed by the Asia and the Pacific region. Just saying…..” – John Nash

RINOS: While we Americans are busy with the holidays, our sleazebag politicians are busy spending our future earnings. Michael Knowles notes that the spending bill is longer than The Iliad, The Divine Comedy, and The Holy Bible combined. To see the names of the RINOs who voted in favor of MORE debt for us and a ton of $ for the vicious Dems to continue persecuting J6 prisoners, click the Geller Report link.

GRAMMY NOTES: Hello again! The Texans and Nonno have left for the Italian clans’ traditional Christmas tortellini making, (more) presents, and tons of food with multiple aunties, uncles, and cousins. Exhausted but happy Happy HAPPPY Grammy is getting much needed rest.
