I am a Mets fan, and therefore a Yankees hater. I am enjoying the current dismal performance of those darn pinstriped millionaires. The team owner, George Steinbrenner, known as "The Boss" among other four letter words, owns Bellamy Road, a favorite to win the Kentucky Derby. Is it wrong for me to want this horse to lose just because of its semi-relationship to the New York Yankees?
"I'm a bad Catholic, not because the Catholic Church is wrong. It's because I don't follow their teachings, and if I don't like it, I can find a church that will be nicer to me."
That image on an underpass some believed looked like Our Lady of Guadalupe was covered by someone with black shoe polish and a swastika. The state highway department considered that to be graffiti so they covered it with brown paint. People somehow removed the paint and the image is now back, intact.
Fr. DePauw was the first Catholic priest to establish an independent chapel to celebrate the traditional Latin Mass. The Ave Maria chapel in Westbury was established in 1968. Mel Gibson worshiped there once. He sounded like a priest way ahead of his time, may he rest in peace.

I just found two posts from September 2003 that had predictions by me - both of which were amazingly accurate. The first prediction was about the Passion of the Christ movie - click here to be amazed! The second was about Pope John Paul II and I am glad I wrote my thoughts because they came absolutely true. The post is here but I will quote myself -
"Wouldn't it be great if the Pope announced he could no longer travel but invited people to visit him in Rome. And after so many years of giving so much to people, we could then visit the Pope by the millions. Imagine millions of people streaming into Vatican City, setting all kinds of records, to pay tribute to John Paul the Great. "

An amazing story via Angry Twins. I always thought that monasteries should have a program for college age students to live as monks while attending college. The students would do better in college due to the disciplined lifestyle, the monastery would be given workers and some fresh blood, and vocations might follow. For students that don't become monks, they would take some great lessons with them throughout life. Portsmouth Abbey has an intern program that looks good.
She had better be charged - she caused lots of pain and misery by lying! Filing a false police report is a crime and it should be prosecuted. What kind of a person puts their family through the misery of thinking she was dead for 4 days? You want to cut the stress of your upcoming wedding? Cut the guest list down from 600 and the number of bridesmaids down from 14 to 2. Geez!
