Crashing Crucifix, Pilgrim & Radicals
JPII’s Crucifix Crashes
Here we have the breaking news of a crucifix erected in honor of John Paul II that just fell, broke into pieces in Italy and killed a man. To read the news report click
I hope God will intervene with some spectacular chastisement and prevent these two blasphemous canonizations from taking place on Sunday at the Vatican.
Hello friends of TIA,
I want you to take a look at
, where a priest is performing the blessing of ritual stones for the pagan Indian cult.
You may call it idolatry if you are speaking a normal language, or inculturation, if you are speaking the Vatican II jargon.
Dear Tradition in Action,
Thank you for your work. I want to share an observation with you that I made in the photos of the
baptizing the baby girl. It is evident that one of the women has a red string tied around her wrist. Could this be the “
that so many Hollywood personages sport?
I have little hope that this poor child will be raised in the Catholic Faith.
Pilgrimage of Reparation
I don't know if you have heard of the Catholic man who is
making a pilgrimage
across the United States to make reparation for the sins of abortion, the breakdown of the family, and the loss of the sense of sin, but his story is quite inspirational. I understand he is very near Los Angeles today, and so I share with you this link to the original article
He has either stopped, or is planning to stop, at 150 Catholic shrines along the way to pray. Today, I received the message below from him, which I wish to share with you.
Thank you for the ability to share this with you and anyone else who may be interested in some follow-up on this admirable young man. May his sacrifices and prayers bring much good fruit in these dire times!
I am currently in California, a little south of Los Angeles. I am working my way up the coast to the different Catholic shrines that are in the area to continue my pilgrimage of prayer and reparation for the Church and for the world.
My prayers are with you and your good family during this Holy Week. Please pray for our Holy Church which, as you said, is being ripped to shreds from within and without. Our Lord, too, was ripped to shreds for love of us. Holy Church is the world's last and only hope; we must rise to the occasion. Our Lord is extending this one last time His Hand of mercy. We must help the world to take it.
Thank you for offering to help in your last two emails. As you would have read in the LifeSiteNews article, I am relying solely on the alms of pious folk along my journey to support me on the pilgrimage. The only way for me to receive your financial help, if that is your intention, is to send it in the form of a check or money order to my parents back home in Delaware. Since I am always moving on to the next pilgrimage shrine, there is no other way to get funds to me. A number of people who read the article have helped in this way. My parents will put the money onto a debit card that I carry with me. If you should want to do this, my parents' address is: William & Judy Byerly, 6 Ranch Ct., Newark, DE 19711.
I am grateful for whatever you may decide to do in my regard, be it prayers or funds or both.
I notice that there is a PhD after your name. I pray that you be always able to serve Our Lord's purposes with the knowledge that your title entails. Very blessed indeed are the doctors who use their knowledge and art for the honor of the Great Doctor of the universe and of our human nature. Thank you.
Sincerely in Our Lord Christ,
Age of the Filter
We certainly live in the 'age of the filter'. We need oil and air filters for our cars. Clean-air filters for our homes. Filters on our forced-air heaters and filters to make sure our kitchen faucets deliver clean fresh water. What would we do without filters to keep coffee grounds from our morning cup? Yes, indeed, we need these filters for our physical well being and we are fortunate to have them. However, do not forget the greatest spiritual filter of all time... the Rosary!
Rules for Radicals
I received this post from Clinical Services and I believe your readers would benefit from reading it.

Rules for Radicals
Recall that Hillary did her college thesis on his writings and Obama writes about him in his books.
Saul Alinsky, an avowed communist, died about 43 years ago, but his writings influenced those in political control of our nation today.
Saul David Alinsky, a writer, was an American community organizer and writer. He influenced and was read by another recent community organizer, Barack Hussein Soetoro O'Bama. He is generally considered to be the founder of the modern community organizing movement. He is most noted for his book "Rules for Radicals."
Died: June 12, 1972, Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA
Education: University of Chicago
Spouse: Irene Alinsky
Rules for Radicals, Reveille for Radicals
Anyone out there think that this stuff isn't happening today in the U.S.?
All eight rules are currently in play.
How to create a social state by Saul Alinsky:
There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state. The first is the most important.
1. Healthcare - Control healthcare and you control the people.
2. Poverty - Increase the Poverty level as high as possible; poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.
3. Debt - Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.
4. Gun Control- Remove the ability of citizens to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.
5. Welfare - Take control of every aspect of lives (Food, Housing, and Income).
6. Education- Take control of what people read and listen to - take control of what children learn in school.
7. Religion- Remove the belief in God from the Government and schools.
8. Class Warfare- Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.
Does any of this sound like what is happening in the United States the past few decades?
Alinsky merely simplified Vladimir Ilyich Lenin's [family name was actually Ulyanov] original scheme for world conquest by Communism, under Soviet Russian rule. Lenin described his converts as "useful Idiots." The useful Idiots have destroyed every nation in which they have seized power and control. It is presently happening at an alarming rate in the U.S.
