General Discussion / Re: CNN's Anthony Bourdain dead at 61...

That's very odd for an over century-old event. Especially for something - although very tragic - that happened during the First World War. 

He did a lot of traveling to questionable parts of the world where political dissenters and opponents are routinely killed, including Russia. If they wanted to ever take him out, they likely had hundreds of opportunities.

Did I miss something? Did someone mention "Touched by an Angel" New Age?

You err, not knowing the Scriptures, nor the power of God. [30] For in the resurrection they shall neither marry nor be married; but shall be as the angels of God in heaven.

Matthew 22.
This specifically says that in terms of not being married we shall be as the angels who are not married. It does not support a "Touched by an Angel" New Age notion that we will literally be like angels.

May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace. Amen.
:pray: :pray: :pray:
Amen. Also this:
Bourdain’s untimely death came only weeks after the May 20th airing of the Armenian Genocide episodeof ‘Parts Unknown’ and the still ongoing cover up of the Armenian genocide. . .
I went to a "hospice" to say the Rosary with a dying friend. A nurse friend was with me. Afterwards she told me that the drip bag had no water in it, only morphine and that our friend was being dehydrated to death. I told her to tell our friend's non-Catholic spouse but it was too late; she died the following day. The N. O. daughter told us she was forbidden to give her mother a sip of water because she might choke; she only swabbed her mouth with a q-tip and told us her mother sucked on it as if she was very thirsty.

In that same time frame, another friend had a mother in the same "hospice" and one relative disregarded the nurses instructions and did give her ice chips to suck on , the other relative did not. This person also was dehydrated to death.

I will add "not to be deprived of water, ice chips or food" on my instructions and clarify that my family is to check with a Trad priest.

Cera just posted a LINK on a different thread.  We may have to ask her how she did it.
I just did it by accident. When I cut-and-paste the link sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Beats me.

If only we had even one iota of his humility and charity. Really.

I remember when Hobbledehoy bowed out gracefully. He admitted to spending too much time here and was going to spend more time in prayer and mediation, if I remember correctly. I was sad to see him go. I wonder it he sneaks a peak from time to time.

His posts were truly uplifting and he never said a bad word about any person.

For newbies here, I'd recommend going (back) over some of his posts.

His first which speaks volumes about the man:

Please accept my condolences for the tragic loss of your mother. I cannot presume to have the words or wisdom wherewith to console you in this very sorrowful and vexing calamity, but be assured of my prayers for the eternal repose of your mother. Be also assured of my prayers for you and your family, that you may be endowed with the graces necessary to abandon yourselves with filial trust to the Providence of our Blessed Lord, Who disposes all things according to the designs of His ineffable clemency and charity
His second (introduce yourself):

Hello everybody:
I'm a twenty-something construction worker from the western seaboard. I am interested in liturgical, theological, scriptural and ecclesiastical studies. I hope I can contribute something edifying to this forum.

Crisis in the Church / Re: ex cathedra, Francis

Am presently to post a link.  But before I do:

1. beef with this could be taken up with the person in back of the site (one of them). 

I've never used the word 'beef' before... but it comes to mind and is a short way of saying:  the person back of site is extremely articulate, intelligent, compassionate, complex, and all sorts of nifty things.  That's not me saying it - if you read, you will see evidence.  If  you do write to him expect a full response to satisfy the most discerning intellect.  It seems he is constitutionally unable to give anything less.

2. This isn't one thing that it appears to be so before assuming it is read the text. 

3. To ask the best questions of him first read all of what is there.
