Luther, Left-handed Children & Aliens
Dear Mr. Atila Sinke Guimarães,
Is Francis to Canonize Luther?
I send you congratulations for your so illustrious criterion. The only thing I would like to indicate is that it would be excellent to add to your valuable article the § 13 of the Common Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification, because, unfortunately, today almost no one has read it, especially the youth.
What is happening in Holy Church brings to my mind the text (§ 4) of the complete
Exorcism of Leo XIII
I also manifest my identification with your thinking and, as Catholics at the foot of the Cross, we must feel ourselves honored to live in this century. Without a doubt many saints would have passed through this great trial for Our Mother, the Holy Church. We must be prepared for the unimaginable that God may permit along the path of sanctity we are call to walk; so elevated a sanctity as to suffer these times to the offering of our life without hesitation.
If we are here is for something better, it is because
[God wills it]
The Editor responds:
Dear Mr. G.C.,
I thank you for your amiable message of support.
It is a satisfaction to find someone from Spain who still wants to suffer for our glorious and holy Faith. I believe that in our days true love for Our Lady and Our Lord at the foot of the Cross must be translated into a tenacious fight against the Progressivism that has infiltrated the Church.
Thank you for your suggestion to add to that article a mention to the common declaration on the doctrine of justification. I will place there links to the places where the subject matter is duly analyzed on our website (
Sisters of St. Joseph Habit
To Whom it May Concern,
My family as a whole was taught by the Good Sisters of Saint Joseph in the Great City and State of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, namely Saint Michael of the Saints. I believe that I had a magnificent education.
It is my opinion and, I think and feel strongly about the Sisters beautiful habit. Yes, I believe that the
dress matters and makes a difference.
It makes a statement.
I googled many sites and read many articles regarding this topic. Once again, I repeat that it is my opinion only, but, one that I stand by.
God bless the Sisters of Saint Joseph each and everyone; especially, the Sisters that taught at Saint Michael of the Saints from 1952 on.
Warm regards and respectfully,
I have heard it said many a time that parents used to be superstitious about left-handedness, and would encourage the child to write with their right hand. This was always presented as a backwards older time vs. A more sophisticated modern time.
I had been reflecting one day on
one of your articles
It had occurred to me that back when inkwell were still used, it would have been very difficult at the least to write with one's left hand without the ink smudging all over the paper. This sounds more reasonable as the true motive behind training someone left-handed to write with their right hand.
Thank you for your wonderful articles.
Dr. Horvat responds:
Your observations on the left-handed child in the past were interesting. I had never heard about the superstitions regarding left-handers, or 'south paws' as they used to be called.
I am aware that, for practical reasons, parents and teachers tried to orient left-handed children to use their right hands. For boys, especially youth who were on farms or oriented towards trades, the normal tools were geared for the right handed person. The same was true for sewing machines, knitting, etc. for girls.
Often, teachers and parents did not know how to instruct the left-handed youth to use right-handed tools and equipment, including writing tools, and so there was an effort to change the child to use his right hand.
Thank you for your support and kind words.

Vatican's Knowledge of Aliens
I mentioned the article below to my wife and she suggested that Pope Francis is indeed the alien that the Vatican has learned about.
RT.com reports: “Because the War in Space race is heating up, I felt you should be aware of several factors as you and I schedule our Skype talk,” Mitchell, who died in February, tells Podesta in the emails from 2015, before mentioning a “non-violent” alien species that wishes to share with mankind “zero point energy.”
Podesta was serving as counselor to President Barack Obama during the exchange, before he left the position to become chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. These emails emerged before Monday’s second batch of the ‘Podesta Emails’ were released by Wikileaks.
Terri Mansfield, who describes herself online as “the Director of the ETI (Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Peace Task Force” is also mentioned in one of Mitchell’s emails.
Referred to as Mitchell’s “Catholic colleague,” Mansfield is also said to be attending the meeting with Podesta “to bring us up to date on the Vatican’s awareness of ETI.”
On her website, Mansfield describes ETIs as being “the highest form of intelligence working directly with God.”
Mitchell, who includes in his email signature that he’s the “6th man to walk on the Moon,” warns Podesta that the “non-violent ETI” are helping to share zero point energy with Earth, but will not “tolerate any forms of military violence on Earth or in space."
Zero point energy (ZPE) has been studied in quantum physics and is described as a vacuum energy, utilizing an energy that exists in molecules even at near absolute zero temperature. If harnessed it could theoretically allow a manned spacecraft to travel to Mars in days, rather than years, according to one study.
Podesta said earlier this year that he had convinced Clinton to disclose UFO files. “There are still classified files that could be declassified,” he told KLAS-TV. In 2002, he openly advocated for the public release of documents on Area 51.
