'She's in heaven' – Pope Francis on Mother Angelica
Mother Mary Angelica of the Annunciation founded the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN), in 1981, and it has since become the largest religious media network in the world. She passed away March 27 after a lengthy struggle with the aftereffects of a stroke. She was 92 years old.
Pope Francis offered his prayers for Mother Angelica Feb. 12 while on his way to Cuba, and asked for her prayers in return.
But he isn’t the only one who is confident in the nun’s holiness. Several other prelates have voiced their admiration and appreciation for Mother’s contribution to the faith, to the Catholic Church in the U.S., and to the world of Catholic communications, including Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI and the Vatican’s spokesman, Fr. Federico Lombardi.
Although Francis has expressed his belief that Mother Angelica is already in heaven, the formal process for declaring her a saint has yet to begin.
Once a cause for her canonization officially opens, the facts and details of her life, as well as the testimonies from those around her, must be obtained and gathered into a lengthy report called a “positio” or “position” and presented to the Vatican’s Congregation for the Causes of Saints.
The congregation must then study the records to determine Mother’s heroic virtue, and eventually look into miracles attributed to her intercession. Only when one miracle has been officially approved can she be declared a Blessed. A second is then required for her canonization as a saint.
However, the Pope could decide to take the route of what’s called an “equipollent,” or “equivalent” canonization, in which he waives the requirement for one or both of the miracles and canonizes the person without them.
This was the case with St. Pope John XXIII in 2014, for whom the Pope decided to waive the second miracle required for his canonization, and proclaimed him a saint with just one.
In his general audience speech, Pope Francis continued his catechesis on mercy as understood in scripture, finishing his segment on the Old Testament.
He focused on Psalm 51, also referred to as “the Miserere” and which is traditionally understood as King David’s prayer asking for forgiveness following his sin of adultery with Bathsheba.
Francis pointed to the psalm’s opening words “Have mercy on me, O God in your kindness,” saying they are “a moving confession of sin, repentance and confident hope in God’s merciful pardon.”
Alongside his “heartfelt plea” to be cleansed and purified of his sin, King David also praises God’s infinite justice and holiness, the Pope observed.
Not only does he ask to be forgiven of his sin, but he also prays “for the gift of a pure heart and a steadfast spirit, so that, thus renewed, he may draw other sinners back to the way of righteousness.”
“God’s forgiveness is the greatest sign of his infinite mercy,” Francis said, and in off-the-cuff remarks had the pilgrims present at the audience repeat three times that “God's forgiveness is greater than our sin!”
He closed his audience by praying that Mary, the “Mother of Mercy,” would intercede so that all would become “ever more convincing witnesses to that divine mercy which forgives our sins, creates in us a new heart, and enables us to proclaim God’s reconciling love to the world.”

"Let no freedom be allowed to novelty, because it is not fitting that any addition should be made to antiquity. Let not the clear faith and belief of our forefathers be fouled by any muddy admixture." -- Pope Sixtus III

Trumpsky is an empty-headed misogynist with developmental issues and he's the worst liar in the history of liars.
I'm no psychologist, so I don't care if Donatella Trumpsky has Narcissistic Personality Disorder or not. At best, he stopped maturing psychologically and sexually around age thirteen. I know, I was a thirteen year old boy once. But I grew out of it and became a man.
Donatella never did. Maybe Daddy's money protected him from the real world. Maybe he was abused. Maybe he's just a dick and always has been. It doesn't matter. At some point, every man is responsible for himself and Trumpsky has passed that point.
He is motivated by three things: Money, sex, and power. Nothing else occupies his tiny pea-sized brain [and hands]. He is to be pitied, not rewarded with the most powerful office in the world.
To the Trumpskyites: Yeah, you're pissed off, so what? I'm angrier than thou and have been so for much longer. Anger, hate, and fear are no substitutes for thinking. There is a point of no return that you are rapidly approaching. Soon you will be written off as brutish fools who have given up their birthright. May God have mercy on you, because the power you willingly hand over to evil men certainly won't.
To Rash Dimbulb, the conservatives' favorite serial adulterer: Stop making excuses for the inexcusable. Stop being an enabler of and a useful idiot for the Repansycan party. Every four years, you tell us we have to hold our noses and vote for whatever moron our moral and intellectual superiors throw up lest the Democrass wins. Wrong. We don't have to vote at all. This is not REPEAT NOT North Korea.
We stayed home by the millions rather than vote for Romney, Do you really think we'll vote for Trumpsky? He makes Mittens The Pompadoured Pussy look like St. Augustine.
To Laura Ingraham: Stop pretending Trumpsky gives a damn about anyone but himself. Stop pretending he gives a damn about the country. Stop pretending he gives a damn about people who work for a living. You can see the truth. Stop being a dumbass.
Many thanks to Glen Beck, Mark Levin and Erick Erickson, voices crying in the wilderness of our benighted times. Imagine that! A Mormon, a Jew, and a Swede walk into a bar, start talking politics and quickly realize they're the only ones who know what the hell is actually going on. And that is no joke.

Seriously, kiddies, Hitlery is stuck in her Lesbo-Syndicalist fantasy world of the 1960s, which is just 19th century Marxism with orgasms added. The world has tried it again and again and it has failed miserably. "Marx lied and 100 million died."
Trumpsky is peddling protectionism, which has been tried just as often and has failed just as miserably. Herbert Hoover II, anyone?
Wake up, kiddies, and choose Cruz. We need the rule of law, not REPEAT NOT the rule of men.
- First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
