Pope Francis washes feet of Islamic lady and explains why

.
Pope Francis gives Holy Thursday tradition his own twist as he washes the feet of 12 young offenders at a detention centre in Rome.
He washed and kissed the feet of a dozen inmates aged 14 to 21, two of whom were female. 
No pontiff has ever washed a woman's feet before and, in another break with tradition, one of the female prisoners was also a Serbian Muslim. 
"Among us the one who is highest up must be at the service of others. This is a symbol, it is a sign -- washing your feet means I am at your service," he told them.

The pontiff, who has largely disregarded protocol since his election earlier this month, urged his fellow clerics before the ceremony to prioritise the poor.
“We need to go out to the outskirts where there is suffering, bloodshed, blindness that longs for sight, and prisoners in thrall to many evil masters,” he said at a mass in St Peter’s Basilica.
“It is not in soul-searching or constant introspection that we encounter the Lord.”
Francis, the first leader of the Catholic Church from Latin America, led a mass with a mixed group of young offenders at the Casal del Marmo prison outside of Rome.
The 76-year-old, who was archbishop of Buenos Aires until chosen as pope, has already made a name for himself as a champion of the disadvantaged. In his homeland of Argentina he was known for his strong social advocacy, working in slums and shunning the lavish lifestyle adopted by some senior clerics. He lived in a small flat near the cathedral, flew to the Rome conclave in economy class, and chose to travel with his fellow cardinals by minibus rather than in the papal limousine.
Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio - as Pope Francis was previously known - had already washed and kissed the feet of women in past ceremonies in Argentinian jails, hospitals and old people's homes, including pregnant mothers and AIDS patients.
Before performing the traditional feet washing, in his first general audience on Wednesday, Francis called on the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics to reach out to “lost sheep” over the coming days.
“Holy Week challenges us to step outside ourselves so as to attend to the needs of others: those who long for a sympathetic ear, those in need of comfort or help,” Francis told thousands of faithful gathered in St Peter’s Square.
On Good Friday, Francis will recite the Passion of Christ – the story of the last hours of Jesus’s life – in St Peter’s Basilica, before presiding over the Via Crucis ceremony by the Colosseum, where thousands of Christians are believed to have been martyred in Roman times.
While last year his predecessor, 85-year-old Pope Benedict, presided over celebrations from under a canopy next to the Colosseum, Francis is expected to take part in the procession and even carry the wooden cross on his shoulder for part of the way.
On Saturday, the pontiff will take part in an evening Easter vigil in St Peter’s Basilica, and on Easter Sunday the he will celebrate Easter mass in front of tens of thousands of pilgrims in St Peter’s Square and then pronounce the traditional “Urbi et Orbi” blessing to Rome and the world.
Also on Thursday, the Pope made his first appointment of a bishop, naming Mario Poli, 66, to succeed him as archbishop of Buenos Aires and the top churchman in Argentina.
Francis also put his first people on the path to sainthood, unveiling a list of 63 people including victims of the Spanish Civil War, Nazism and Communism. The largest number are considered martyrs of faith killed during the 1931-45 conflict in Spain.

Indonesian Islamists Threaten Catholic Church Not To Celebrate Holy Week…

http://weaselzippers.us/2013/03/25/indonesian-islamists-threaten-catholic-church-not-to-celebrate-holy-week/


Jakarta (AsiaNews) – This Holy Week will be full of tensions for Catholics in West Jakarta, who put up with repeated threats over the weekend from hundreds of Islamic extremists, who tried to block access to Christ the Peace Catholic Church in Kepa Duri, an administrative area west of the Indonesian capital.
Last Saturday, on the eve of Palm Sunday, Islamist groups made serious threats against Catholics in Kepa Duri, telling the priest and the faithful to cancel scheduled weekend celebrations.
Their hatred was triggered by the fact that the place of worship is located inside a school, which, in their opinion, “should not be used” for religious services.
The extremists tried to attack the site when the priest and some members of the congregation started a prayer meeting. As a result, Fr Matthew Widyolestari turned to the Interfaith Forum in Jakarta, which met with the leaders of the extremist protest.
Contacted by AsiaNews, Fr Matthew said that Sunday services would be held “regularly, as scheduled,” which is what happened. Yesterday in fact, the faithful were able to attend Mass, also thanks to the massive deployment of security forces sent to protect their life.

States' rights denial. Feds impose Obamacare in unwilling states! Tyranny.

Source  http://www.independentsentinel.com/2013/03/tyranny-feds-will-force-obamacare-on-unwilling-states/

excerpt:

Four states, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, and Wyoming, have chosen to not implement Obamacare with its 20,000 pages of rules.
Politico reported about their refusal on March 19th and said the feds will still “enforce its new measures — including new benefit mandates, cost-sharing guidelines and rules on how insurers rate customers — to retain control over their health insurance markets.
The states insurance departments have received letters from Gary Cohen, director of the federal Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight, informing them that they – the federal government – will enforce Obamacare because the states have not. At the same time, only 11 states and Washington have started to adjust laws to prepare for sever major Obamacare reforms taking effect in 2014.

Biden Disses Pope. Ignores Protocol. Then Commits Sacrilege.

An arrogant, idiotic fool.






















Despite the prohibition of Church Law in Canon 915, he receives Holy Communion sacrilegiously.

Among the faithful packing the pews was Vice President Biden along with his wife, Jill.

Biden received communion, despite his support for abortion rights.

Unlike his predecessor, Dolan does give communion to Catholics who stray from church dogma on abortion policy, saying he prefers to persuade them in discussion rather deny them the Eucharist.

Dolan and Biden had coffee after the service, though neither addressed the press.

Catholic Bishops to GOP House: Repeal Obamacare Reg in CR

From: http://cnsnews.com/news/article/catholic-bishops-gop-house-repeal-obamacare-reg-cr-or-other-must-pass-bill

Excerpts:
The Catholic bishops of the United States are asking the Republican-controlled House of Representatives to do something concrete and effective--rather than merely symbolic—to repeal a regulation the administration has issued under Obamacare that will force Catholics and other Christians to act against their faith in purchasing or providing health-care plans that cover sterilizations, contraceptives, and abortion-inducing drugs.
Last June, the bishops unanimously declared this regulation an “unjust and illegal mandate.” Since then, dozens of Catholic and Protestant private business owners, schools and non-profit organizations have sued the administration seeking to fully or partially overturn the regulation, arguing it violates their First-Amendment right to free exercise of religion.

'Killing Jews Is Worship' Ad Campaign Rolled Out On SF Buses



Playing for the cameras and getting played. What a racket.

I love when the DA tool District Attorney George Gascon awkwardly paraphrases Edmund Burke's famous quote that all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. Well, Gascon, the only thing worse than doing nothing is actually aiding and abetting the enemy.

Did Gascon and his council of quislings condemn the quotes by the jihadists? Not. a. chance. What is implied here is that Gascon and the craven council associate all Muslims with violent jihad. Whose the phobe now, clown?

Check out the small pro-jihad group mugging and jumping in front of the cameras.

I'll say one thing, though: the ads look great. Love the ad? Make it happen. More here: http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/at...

Tough love from Pope Francis. US Cardinal severely disciplined. So soon?

 Liberal cardinals must be worried.  Good.

Source:  http://www.stpeterslist.com/asides/report-pope-francis-bans-disgraced-cardinal-law-from-his-church/


The article, from the somewhat sordid “Daily Mail,” reprints Italian news reports. In pertinent part:
So when the appearance of a disgraced cardinal threatened to cast a shadow over his first engagement, Francis I made sure it couldn’t happen again – by banning him from his own church.
Cardinal Bernard Law resigned as Archbishop of Boston in 2002, after being accused of actively covering up for a litany of paedophile priests.’
Despite the scandal which exploded to engulf the entire church, he was given an honorary position at the Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore, in Rome.
Though now retired, the cardinal still enjoys a grace and favour apartment in the cathedral complex.
So hearing that the new Pope was offering prayers at the very same church, it seems he couldn’t resist a discreet peak.
But when Pope Francis recognised him, he immediately ordered that Law be removed, according to Italian media reports. He went on to command: ‘He is not to come to this church any more.’
One of the new Pope’s first acts will be to arrange new ‘cloistered’ accommodation for the disgraced cardinal, the Italian daily, Il Fatto Quotidiano, reported.

Eucharistic Miracle caught in a photo

Eucharistic Miracle. Photo taken on October 30th, 2011 during Adoration at Casa San Pablo in Sto. Dgo. Dominican Republic. The colors of red and blue/white=(Divine Mercy) and gold=(glory). These colors also feature on the Rosa Mystica statues (red, white and gold roses representing the mysteries of the Rosary etc). After careful examination, the "gush" of graces (looking like water) are coming from the bottom area of the Host and over to the right, reminding us of the vision of Ezekiel.

Russians are the ones without the shirt.  Everyone must learn to fight the Islamists this way.  Unfortunately, the West simply succumbs to appeasement for fear of being accused of racism.

The United Nations is the leading global sponsor of antisemitism today.


In the last few decades the United Nations has been obsessed with one country. Is it North Korea, Zimbabwe, Iran, Syria, China or some other nation with a reprehensible human rights record? Those would all be fair guesses and they would all be wrong. Anne Bayefsky, director of the Touro Human Rights Institute, answers this riddle and explains the upside down moral universe in which the United Nations resides.
