Agreda, Homo Kiss & ‘Catholic’ Abortion
To Kneel or Not to Kneel
The question that bothers me most is this: Why and since when does Pope Francis not kneel during the service, what every priest is obliged to do?
So far, we have not noticed the point of your question: Whether or not Francis kneels during his Masses.
Thank you, though, for asking, because henceforth we will keep this in mind and post anything we learn on this page.

To Whom It May Concern,
I bought the book T
he Mystical City of God
and had it on the shelf in my office. While in adoration on the Feast of Saint Maximillian Kolbe, questions rushed my mind about the Assumption of Mary… was she ill, who was with her… and did her body just leave from the sick bed?
When I got home from adoration, the book…
Mystical City of God
, literally fell off the book shelf. I went to the part of the CORONATION and could not put it down… all of my questions were answered.
I am the Regional Director of the MI for Kansas and Mo and would love to share a lot of these writings… Do you have prayer cards with this beautiful woman on them? And where is she in the process of Sainthood?
Please get back to me as we meet in prayer
We do carry the booklet
Ven. Maria of Agreda in America
by Margaret Galitzin, which reports the miraculous bilocations she had from Spain to the United States - New Mexico and Texas - where she developed a remarkable apostolate to convert our Indians. It is available
However, we do not carry any post card or prayer for her canonization.
She received the title of Venerable, but we do not know the details about her ongoing process of beatification.

Homo Kiss Receives TV Youth Award
The news report below gives us another good reason not to watch television!
This really proves how low our country has fallen into the pits of Hell.
Youngest Same-Sex Kiss in US Television History
9 Aug 2015 – ABC Family television series The Fosters – which made TV history earlier this year by airing the youngest-ever same-sex kiss between two 13-year-old boys – took home the award for Outstanding Achievement in Youth Programming at the 31st annual Television Critics Association awards on Saturday night.
The award marked the second consecutive TCA Youth Programming win for The Fosters, which began its third season in June.
The show centers on the biological, adopted and foster children of police officer Stef (Teri Polo) and her wife Lena (Sherri Saum), a school vice principal. The show made waves in March when a second-season episode featured a same-sex kiss between 13-year-old boys Jude (Hayden Byerly) and Connor (Gavin MacIntosh).
The kiss ignited a
debate on social media
over whether The Fosters is considered appropriate to air on a family network. Family organization
One Million Moms
had protested the show before its first season aired, saying ABC Family had “lost their minds” and that “none of this material is acceptable content for a family show.”
The Fosters picked up the award for Outstanding Drama Series at the 2014 GLAAD Awards, and was nominated in the category again this year before ultimately losing to ABC’s How to Get Away With Murder.
Other big winners at this year’s TCA Awards included Empire (Program of the Year), Better Call Saul (Outstanding New Program), Jon Hamm (Individual Achievement in Drama, Mad Men) and Amy Schumer (Individual Achievement in Comedy, Inside Amy Schumer).

Group Teaches Catholic Students to Defend Abortion
Law Students for Reproductive Justice are training a new crop of abortion advocates
August 12, 2015 – Law students at premier Catholic universities are being taught to defend abortion and "reproductive rights."
The organization, known as
Law Students for Reproductive Justice
(LSRJ), has been helping Catholic universities to "train and mobilize law students and new lawyers across the country to foster legal expertise and support for the realization of reproductive justice."
Collaborating with dissident group Catholics for Choice, LSRJ aims to create a new generation of Catholic lawyers to convince others that contraception and abortion are fundamental rights of women.
The LSRJ is currently allowed on multiple Catholic campuses, including Fordham, Georgetown, San Diego, DePaul, and University of Detroit Mercy, among others.
Though Georgetown has said the chapter is not affiliated with the college, the chapter takes place in the main Law School building. Furthermore, the LSRJ's previous president of its Georgetown chapter was none other than Sandra Fluke, the student who gained fame several years ago when she publicly criticized Catholic institutions for not fighting for reproductive rights, saying contraception should be free on all college campuses.
Timothy O'Malley, University of San Diego vice president, defended the group's presence in 2013 by saying, "The fostering of legal expertise in all aspects of the law is consistent with the educational objectives of the USD School of Law."
Having written blog posts such as "
When Hospitals Cause Problems Rather Than Fix Them
," which decry the "withholding of treatment by Catholic hospitals," as well as honoring late-term abortionists, the LSRJ's views are extreme and directly opposed to Church teaching.
The organization's Facebook page shows a picture of Dr. Leroy Carhart, a famed late-term abortion provider, surrounded by smiling LSRJ law students at the 2013 annual meeting at American University.
Aside from teaching young Catholics to defend abortion rights, LSRJ also provides direct annual funding of $50,000 to organizations such as National LGBTQ Task Force, an organization promoting homosexuality.
