To be a survivor in this Amazing Race with the need for speed you need God's Grace and if your desperate like housewives watching days of our lives, you can't cope without hope and that is not on a soap. If you're looking to Oprah or Dr. Phil you can shop non-stop or pop a pill, but the void won't fill and the pain won't kill until you love the one that hung on a hill.

Kicking back in your lazy boy easy chair watching Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, nah your not gonna find it there. No American Idol or Council Tribal has the final answer that will satisfy ya. C. S. I. ain't got a clue. S.V.U. don't know what to do Not the E R or the OC not those seen on a CD TV DVD or MP3 can save you and me. CNN has got no Good News here's a headline you must choose. It's not a simple life Paris Hilton, It's treading on thin ice living in sin.

You can be an apprentice for Donald Trump or eat Fear Factor fast food from a dump. You can be a heavy hitter or wheel of fortune winner or a Fox news no spin spinner or flat out sinner but you better check this life that you're livin' and make sure your sins are forgiven. I bet ya 50 cent Elvis done come and went, and eventually every Black-eyed-pea, Gwen Stefani, P-Diddy and Britney. Every wanna-be on M T V with their Icy Bling, every Dixie Chick that Sings, they all gonna see the king of kings. I don't care if you're J-Lo, Leno or Bono. One thing you gotta know. Some day you're gonna die, Bro. Then Where are you gonna go?

Hey, i'm not talking some punk junk that is irrelevant. Like your Grandma's church from way back when. It's not some preacher feature on T B N. that you need to be liking or listening. The real superstar is Jesus Christ. He's the way, He's the truth and the life. One day he's gonna split the sky. He is the brightest light and the highest high and so what I came to say and what I'm telling you is don't buy that stupid stuff they be selling ya. it's all designed to fill your head and waste your space until your dead.

here's the bottom line in my rhyme. Give your life to God while there's still time.

15 Promises of Mother Mary to those who pray the Rosary

Blessed Alan de la Roche and Dominic the Prussian, revived the Rosary during the last quarter of the 15th century, after a period of about 100 years where the Rosary had been forgotten.  Thousands were inspired by Bl. Alan's claim that the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to him, telling him to take up the work started by St. Dominic, the founder of Bl. Alan's own order.

The Blessed Virgin Mary gave Bl. Alan 15 promises from her for regularly praying the Rosary.  These promises are:

1.  Whoever shall faithfully serve me by the recitation of the Rosary shall receive signal graces.
2.  I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all those who shall recite the Rosary.
3.  The Rosary shall be a powerful armor against Hell, it will destroy vice, decrease sin, and defeat heresies.
4.  It will cause virtue and good works to flourish; it will obtain for souls the abundant mercy of God; it will withdraw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities and will lift them to the desire of eternal things.  Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
5.  The soul which recommends itself to me by the recitation of the Rosary, shall not perish.
6.  Whoever shall recite the Rosary devoutly, applying himself to the consideration of its sacred mysteries, shall never be conquered by misfortune.  God will not chastise him in His justice, he shall not perish by an unprovided death; if he be just, he shall remain in the grace of God and become worthy of eternal life.
7.  Whoever shall have a true devotion for the Rosary shall not die without the Sacraments of the Church.
8.  Those who are faithful to recite the Rosary shall have during their life and at their death the light of God and the plenitude of His graces; at the moment of death, they shall participate in the merits of the saints in Paradise.
9.  I shall deliver from Purgatory those who have been devoted to the Rosary.
10.  The faithful children of the Rosary shall merit high degree of glory in Heaven.
11.  You shall obtain all you ask of me by the recitation of the Rosary.
12.  All those who propagate the Holy Rosary shall be aided by me in their necessities.
13.  I have obtained from my Divine Son that all the advocates of the Rosary shall have for intercessors the entire Celestial Court during their life and at the hour of death.
14.  All who recite the Rosary are my sons, and brothers of my only Son, Jesus Christ.
15.  Devotion to my Rosary is a great sign of predestination.

Pope allows condoms? Morality behind cooperation with evil.

Pope cites specific cases when condom use is justifiable.  It could be under the lesser evil approach to cooperation with evil.  If you know that an AIDS infected person cannot stop impregnating others, then it is a lesser evil to counsel that person to at least use a condom.  That doesn't mean that condom use is moral.  It is just a way to stop him for infecting others since he does not have the discipline to stop engaging in sex.  It's cutting a finger to save a hand.

Excerpt below from here with fuller context and background.

From Chapter 11, "The Journeys of a Shepherd," pages 117-119:
On the occasion of your trip to Africa in March 2009, the Vatican’s policy on AIDs once again became the target of media criticism.Twenty-five percent of all AIDs victims around the world today are treated in Catholic facilities. In some countries, such as Lesotho, for example, the statistic is 40 percent. In Africa you
stated that the Church’s traditional teaching has proven to be the only sure way to stop the spread of HIV. Critics, including critics from the Church’s own ranks, object that it is madness to forbid a high-risk population to use condoms.
The media coverage completely ignored the rest of the trip to Africa on account of a single statement. Someone had asked me why the Catholic Church adopts an unrealistic and ineffective position on AIDs. At that point, I really felt that I was being provoked, because the Church does more than anyone else. And I stand by that claim. Because she is the only institution that assists people up close and concretely, with prevention, education, help, counsel, and accompaniment. And because she is second to none in treating so many AIDs victims, especially children with AIDs.

"Catholic moral tradition elaborates four basic principles that help us navigate a morally complex world. Each of these principles involves varying degrees of cooperation with evil. The principles are (1) double effect, in which a single action has two foreseen effects—one “good” and intended, the other “evil” and tolerated, such as the removal of the fetus in an ectopic pregnancy to save the life of the mother; (2) tolerance, in which we judge, following the Gospel principle of the wheat and the tares, that certain evils must be endured for the time being lest a greater evil ensue from our efforts to weed out the malefactors, such as tolerating legal abortion even if we disagree that this should be the case; (3) compromise, in which we in some way actively participate in actions or sinful social structures that have a clear morally evil component, such as purchasing goods made under exploitative labor conditions in foreign sweatshops; and (4) the lesser of two evils, such as counseling the use of clean needles among drug addicts."
