Government Intruding Family Life
Please, read and disseminate this alert on the intrusion of the State into family life. The power of the father is violated and is replaced by the State.
The United States is becoming what Communist Russia was (still is?) under Stalin.
Feds Push New Plan For Home Visits to Check on Parents

Government-appointed monitors to assess upbringing of children
FEBRUARY 12, 2016 - The federal government is seeking to create a new bureaucracy that would intervene in family life and could even see state-appointed monitors conduct routine home visits to assess a child’s well-being.
The U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has published a
which outlines a plan that will treat families as “equal partners” in the raising of children, opening the door for government intrusion at all levels.
The paper describes how government employees will intervene to provide, “monitoring goals for the children at home and the classroom,” and that if parents are failing to meet the standards set, “evidence-based parenting interventions” will be made to, “ensure that children’s social-emotional and behavioral needs are met.”
The document reveals how the state will help oversee, “constant monitoring and communication regarding children’s social-emotional and behavioral health.”
The program bears the hallmarks of a
in Scotland, set to take effect later this year, under which a “shadow parent” appointed by the government would monitor the upbringing of every child until the age of 18.
Our Lady of Good Success Named General of the Army
A friend of mine went to Ecuador for the commemoration of the Feast of Our Lady of Good Success and witnessed the act by which she was made General of the Ecuadorian Army. I believe that it is an act pleasing to her, since she is defined in the Scriptures as “terrible as an army in battle array.”
Here is a short video of the moment in which the general of the Ecuadorian Army named her a General and the Nuncio received her symbols and placed them at her feet.
The quality of the video is not great, but it catches that solemn moment. The announcements are in Spanish, of course.
The video can be watched

Spiritual Communions on First Saturdays & First Fridays
Thanks for all your work on your website. It is helping me to learn a lot about my catholic faith. Would it be possible for a person who can't eat wheat due to Celiac disease to validly participate on these devotions?
If so, how would it be possible since having communion is a requirement on those days? I know some parishes offer a gluten free variant of the host, however I know by personal experience that even this gluten free variant makes the person with Celica's disease sick (as if they had eaten a regular wheat host).
Thanks and God Bless you for your work.
Thank you for your amiable words about our website.
We believe that your case of biological intolerance for wheat and gluten products, falls into the general cases of persons who, because of different illnesses, cannot receive the Holy Eucharist.
In these cases the persons are advised to make spiritual Communions.
This means that you should set aside time for your complete recollection, prepare your soul to receive Our Lord and act as if you were receiving Him physically. After your spiritual Communion, a period of 10 minutes should be observed. This is the time for you to fulfill the four parts of the worship prayer: adoration, thanksgiving, reparation and supplication.
If you do this in five First Saturday along with fulfilling the
of that devotion, and also on the nine first Fridays, we believe that Our Lady and Our Lord will account your spiritual Communions as valid to receive the benefits offered by these devotions.
We hope this will help you.

A Vatican II Moment: in a
Priest Incenses Coffeemaker-Pot with Ashes Inside
Strangeness never ends in Novus Ordo territory: one of the popularizers of the stovetop moka pot coffeemaker, Renato Bialetti, died days ago in Italy (son of Alfonso Bialetti, for whose company the machine was first invented decades ago - the Bialetti family has not owned the Bialetti brand for many years).
Was he buried as countless generations of Catholic Italians? No, in a last bit of branding, he was cremated and his ashes were placed in a ... Bialetti Coffeemaker during what can be called a Coffeemaker Funeral Mass. There is a video to prove it... We are quite sure they all thought this was a beautiful and brilliant idea. And there was no ecclesiastical authority to stop it.
The priest duly incensed the Coffeemaker (video in
. This all happened in the Parish of St. Thomas the Apostle, Montebuglio, near Omegna, in the Diocese of Novara, Lombardy, Italy.
By the way, was it a lack of space or money?... No: as the report above clarifies, the coffeemaker was "buried" in the very wealthy family's cemetery plot in Omegna, Lombardy.
