It seems Pope Francis needs to brush up on his Tertullian!

It has been reported (in The ChristLast Media, I must note) that the current Pope does not like the phrase "lead us not into temptation...

"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

Today is Memorial Day, on which we remember our honored war dead.

Something old from Amazon.com:

The Soldiers of the Flanders Field American Military Cemetery ...

The American engagement in World War I was short but violent and aggressive. Many American families lost a son, daughter or spouse in a far an unknown land.

This book does not specifically cover or emphasize the military operations in Flanders, Belgium. We have tried to present a unique document with original photography which has never been published before. This way we have taken it a step further than most authors who mainly focus on strategy and battlefields.

This 705 page profusely illustrated book includes 414 cameos of American soldiers who gave their lives on two different fronts in Belgium between July 1918 and the armistice. It also covers the history of the United States leading up to their involvement in World War I, the 4 Divisions (27th,30th, 37th and 91st) in Belgium, the aftermath documenting the work of the American Graves Registration Service, the origins of the cemetery, the establishment of the American Battle Monuments Commission, American Overseas Memorial Day Association and Gold Star Mother Pilgrimages of the 1930’s.

Something new from ABC7 in New York:

U.S. Navy SEAL killed in parachute accident at Fleet Week event

A U.S. Navy SEAL was killed on Sunday when his parachute malfunctioned during a Fleet Week event at Liberty State Park in Jersey City.

Four SEALs on a parachute team dropped out of a helicopter during a stunt, but one of those parachutes did not open.

"One of the team members' parachute malfunctioned. The Navy SEAL's parachute failed to open properly, and he landed in the water adjacent to Liberty State Park," said USN Admiral Jack Scorby, the US Navy Commander of the Mid-Atlantic.

A piece of the parachute fell to the ground, and moments after, the Navy SEAL cut himself loose, and splashed into the water.

He was rescued immediately by the US Coast Guard and Marine unit teams who were on standby. He was then rushed to Jersey City Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead an hour later.

"I ask for all of your prayers for the Navy SEAL community, who lost a true patriot today," added Admiral Scorby.

Good Catholic kiddies will do better than that, Admiral. We will pray for the salvation of his immortal soul.

The Navy SEAL was a member of the Leap Frogs, an elite US Navy Parachute Team.

In Jersey City, four SEALs were supposed to land in the park. The parachute demonstration was a part of a Fleet Week event. It was part of several events, like an unrelated helicopter demonstration that had many spectators confused an unaware of the tragedy that had just taken place.

The cause of the parachute malfunction is under investigation.

The Navy SEAL's identity is being withheld pending family notification.

The names of the wars change, but the cause remains the same. Please pray for the souls of all our fallen heroes.

About Me

My photo
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.
