It is surprising that there has been little or no comment upon this factual representation of the European situation. The atomization which is referred to in the video, is further progressed than anyone can imagine.

General Discussion / Re: Thank you, Hobbledehoy.
« Last post by Matthew on Today at 08:46:42 AM »
Hobbles, so far as I can tell at the end, faced something of a crisis of authority and he returned to the Novus Ordo. C'est la vie.  This was on TD, if I recall correctly, though that's obviously no help to anyone since the place went offline.

He was a great poster, dearly missed.

Yes, it's quite humbling to consider how fragile we all are. I mean, meditate for a minute or more on how fully and integrally Trad Hobbledehoy was. He didn't just fit in on CathInfo, he was an ideal member! He had huge collections of old pre-Vatican II works which he scanned and uploaded to CathInfo. Actually, he uploaded to an image hosting service, and posted all those links on CathInfo (so now all the links he posted don't work! UGH!)

But you'd think that by filling his mind with such good influences, the Church the way it was before Vatican II, all its wisdom, common sense, such a rich fullness of the Catholic Faith in every page, every scan of his pre-Vatican II books -- that he'd know an impostor (Conciliar Church, Novus Ordo) when he saw it! I know I do! I could never be happy or content in the Novus Ordo. I've tasted real meat. Some cardboard painted to look like meat just wouldn't satisfy me!

Hobbles was practically a gourmet, to extend this analogy. And how he's happily munching on cardboard every Sunday, and maybe even during the week.

It's a mystery why some persevere, and others fall away for this or that reason. It reminds me of the Parable of the Sower.

If this had been the result of a natural disaster then I could see them having problems accommodating all these children. But this is the result of a policy change. If you want to deport them then put them on planes and send them away. If you take the children away from the parents because you wish to make a prosecution then you are responsible for the well being of those children. With the implementation of this policy change it would have been foreseen that there would be a large number of children involved. Keeping small children in jail or jail like conditions is still considered child abuse.
Yes, train the children to see that if they commit a crime nothing will happen to them, in fact they will be cared for. There is no disaster, they are economic migrants, here to make money and send it home to Mexico, stealing it from the American economy, or to take advantage of our welfare system. Wake up, and stop acting like the communists, and Jews who are promoting this destructive narrative in throughout the world, almost entirely in white countries.

Who's going to pay for all these planes, bro?  Let's see, the Gonzalez family needs to fly to Mexico City, the Luis family to Guatemala, the Sanchez family to Costa Rica and the Smith family goes to Columbia.  4 families x 4 people = 16 international plane tickets at a cost of $1,000 each.  So $16,000 for 16 people?  And american taxpayers are going to pay for this?  ARE YOU NUTS?!  THIS WOULD INCREASE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS COMING TO THE US.  Everyone would come to the border to get a free plane ticket anywhere in the world.  We'd be bankrupt in a matter of months.  And what would stop these people from coming BACK to get more free travel?

Your arguments are pure idealism and make no sense in the real world.

The parents who illegally brought these children across an INTERNATIONAL border, under dangerous conditions, are responsible for the risks and issues which happen to their children if they get caught crossing such a border.  Most well-meaning parents would leave their children at home with relatives and go to the border alone, looking for a green card, and then send for their children later.

In theory, the US is within it's legal rights to SHOOT THESE PEOPLE who try to enter the country illegally.  You get that?  The fact that we don't shoot them, or send out packs of wild dogs, or use drones to end their life is already a MAJOR ACT OF CHARITY.  Then we HUMANELY take them into detention centers, FEED them, CLOTHE them, give them MEDICINE, a BED, and whatever else.  IT'S ALL FREE!  WHAT IS MORE CHRISTIAN THAN THAT?

If someone tries to enter your house, are you obligated to let them in, feed them, give them your bed and care for their children until the courts have time, 30 days later (at minimum) to review whether or not they should be in your house and where they should go now?  Or would you call the cops and complain that a family is trying to break down your back door?  What would happen if the cops came to your house and arrested this family?  The parents would be sent to jail and the children WOULD BE SEPARATED and sent to foster care.  HOW IS THIS ANY DIFFERENT THAN THE BORDER?

Again, you argue from pure emotion and idealism.  No common sense.

There have ALWAYS BEEN children involved when it comes to immigration.  So 2,000 out of 12,000 children were separated, per DHS statistics.  That's only 16%.  And most likely they were separated because we weren't sure if the "relative" of the child was actually their relative.  You do realize that drug lords and terrorists ABDUCT children and bring them across the border as a cover, right?  Then they sell the child (or worse) once they don't need them anymore.  Most likely, the drug lord killed the family of the child as well.  So the US is trying to STOP CHILD TRAFFICKING when such separations occur.  Again, looking at the statistics, 84% of families ARE NOT SEPARATED.

Finally, if a family comes to the border, they know that being arrested is possible.  A DETENTION CENTER is just another word for a jail.  So EVERYONE who is in a detention center IS IN JAIL.  When you complain about "jail like conditions" it just goes to show that you don't have a clear understanding of how all this works.  When you complain about children being kept in "cells", you forget that THE ENTIRE DETENTION CENTER IS A BIG JAIL CELL.  These people are being forcefully detained because THEY BROKE THE LAW, just like they would be handcuffed, fingerprinted and jailed if they tried to break down your back door.

These people are lucky to be alive.  They are lucky we are taking care of them.  I know that "some" of them need assylum but most come to the US looking for free stuff and a better life - this is not an excuse to break the law.  They know the consequences and they know we are a charitable nation which is why they want to come here.  If we were truly running a "gulag" where children were being treated like dogs, then people wouldn't be coming from all over the south american continent to get here.

Father Pio said to a person: "We will pray for your mother, so that the Guardian Angel will be with her in company."

Things were not always so good as they should have been. For example in the 1790s the Notre Dame Archives report that only a fraction of the people made their Easter duty.

General Discussion / Re: any REAL apparitions?
« Last post by poche on Today at 05:02:51 AM »
An image of the Virgin Mary may have been captured on December 12, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. The image was snapped by Fr. Fernando Molina-Restrepo of the Transfiguration Catholic Church in Marietta, Georgia.
The image has hardly gained much attention, being reported on a few outlets and in Atlanta. Catholic Online learned of the apparition just today.
The image is captured on glass at the church hall and reveals Our Lady appears dressed as she was when she appeared before Juan Diego. There is a blue tint to her outer garment, which is also trimmed with gold. Her inner garments are pink in color. Her hands appear folded and her head looks bowed.
Parishioners said they were in the parish hall when the image appeared accompanied by the scent of roses. Victor Jose Alvarado told CBS News that parishioners started praying and singing at the sight. A sense of peace overcame everyone.
Critics have said the apparition is nothing more than a "faulty coating" on the window. If so, then how can they explain its sudden appearance, the smell of roses attested by the parishioners, and their sense of peace? A faulty coating would be present from early on and might not even escape the factory and it certainly wouldn't be installed. There's also the timing of the apparition to consider --the feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
The apparition was not accompanied by any messages or visions, but it's no less powerful for being silent. Fr. Molina-Restrepo wrote to CBS, "We may never agree on why or how this image appeared on the window. The true gift to us will be in how we are inspired to be MORE: more forgiving, more accepting, more loving to those with whom we share our lives."
That's a message we can all agree on.

Catholic Living in the Modern World / Re: My 4 year old nephews school
« Last post by Aleah on Today at 04:57:48 AM »
Could you imagine the impact on the world if each individual Catholic volunteered for ONE day in a  good cause? 
Going out to an abortion clinic, visiting a retirement home, making meals for people in need, homeless shelter, prayer vigils, protesting the LGBT agenda.....the list goes on and on!

I urge all those here in this forum to consider an outside cause that publicly displays Catholic teaching and can help stop these horrible sins and/or bring people to Christ. If you are already doing this, God bless you!

Rather amazing that the same Hugh Owen, founder and director of the Kolbe Center is rightly against Big Bangism and Big Bangism properly gets the boot in the material produced by the Kolbe Center, but at the same time they now have highlighted on their website Fr. Paul Robinson's book.  See http://kolbecenter.org/the-realist-guide-to-religion-and-science/

What gives?  I just requested some clarification on this matter from Mr. Owen via the contact on the Center's site.  Stay tuned!

On his book site Fr Robinson critiques the Kolbe position. The kolbecenter is here above giving its opinion of Fr Robinson's book in return, a very negative and correct one at that.
To do so they had to show the book they are referring to.
