I wish Mel Gibson had done it...

...the continuing story of Jesus Christ after he was placed in the tomb. 

The movie is "Risen"...

Whatever you think of Mel Gibson, his "The Passion of the Christ" movie was least in my opinion. I wish Gibson had done this movie and continued the story.  This looks good...but I just don't know if it will hold up to "The Passion of the Christ". 

More about "Risen" here: 

In Christ,

The Francis Effect

Gloria.TV description: Fr. Linus Clovis on the Francis Effect at a seminar for Pro-Life Leaders in Rome, 8th May 2015.
**Note, this priest says that Pope Francis said (the "Rabbitgate" controversy) "three is enough", three children is enough was what he was talking about. The Vatican deleted that statement from the record.  Gee...I wonder why?

All I can say is...'Well said Father, well said."

In Christ,

Protest at Planned Parenthood in New Haven, CT

Protest at New Haven Planned Parenthood Facility on August 22 warns: “PP Sells Baby Parts”

New Haven, CT — In light of recent revelations that Planned Parenthood has been harvesting and selling aborted baby parts, concerned citizens of New Haven are calling for a protest at the Planned Parenthood facility at 345 Whitney Avenue, New Haven, CT on August 22 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. This effort is part of a National Day of Protest taking place at Planned Parenthood offices and abortion facilities all across the United States ( to raise awareness about Planned Parenthood’s trafficking of aborted baby parts. 

Undercover videos (see links below) released by the Center for Medical Progress reveal that Planned Parenthood abortion clinics, with the sanction of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, are involved in the harvesting of body parts of unborn children aborted in their facilities and profiting from their sale contrary to federal laws prohibiting such practices. The videos show high-level Planned Parenthood executives haggling over the prices of fetal specimens. The videos also raise ethical questions about the exploitation of unborn children for financial gain and risks to women’s health if abortion procedures are altered solely to procure more profitable specimens. 

As a consequence of this public scandal, several states have initiated investigations of Planned Parenthood and legislation has been introduced in Congress to defund the abortion giant. Planned Parenthood currently receives over $500 million in taxpayer funding annually.

WHO: concerned citizens of New Haven
WHAT: Protest calling attention to PP’s baby parts trafficking
WHERE: Planned Parenthood, 345 Whitney Avenue, New Haven, CT
WHEN: August 22, 2015 from 9:00 a.m. to11:00 a.m.

The coalition is headed by Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Created Equal, 40 Days for Life and the Pro-Life Action League, and is co-sponsored by fifty state and national pro-life organizations.

Local spokesman Timothy O’Rourke Jr. said: 

“All politics is local. We cannot only look to Washington, DC and our state governments to solve this problem. Planned Parenthood is located in large and small communities all across America. Each community with a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic or satellite office needs to take action against the killing of babies and the trafficking of their body parts. Concerned local citizens from New Haven will be sending the message that it’s well past time for Planned Parenthood to be closed in New Haven!”

EWTN Press Release: Premiering New Show for Youth on Youtube

EWTN’s New Show For Youth To Premiere on YouTube

‘You’re Amazing With Justin Fatica’ Deals With Real Issues Such as Pornography and Broken Families
Irondale, AL (EWTN) – “You’re Amazing With Justin Fatica” is more than just the title of EWTN’s newest series, which will premiere online Thursday, August 27. (Find out more below!) It’s also more than just a slogan to our host, Author/Speaker/Evangelist Justin Fatica of “Hard as Nails.”

Recently, this young dynamo was at a book signing when a teenager came up to him and said, “I think your message is baloney.” Most people would have been offended. Not Justin.
“I’m an East Coast guy,” he said, “I’m thinking, ‘I like this kid.’ I said, ‘Why do you think that?’”

The teen said, “My dad left me. He’s not amazing. Everybody is not amazing.”

Justin said, “That really must have hurt, but your dad is still amazing.”
The teen got indignant. “You can’t say that. You don’t know what I went through. He left us. I had to take care of my brother.”

Justin looked at the teen and said, “That must have been really hard for you. What your dad DID was not amazing, but your DAD is amazing.”

“You can’t say that,” the teen insisted.

“Did it hurt you when your dad left?”

“Yes, I was a little kid.”

“Did you ever cry about it?”

“Yeah, I cried about it! It hurt!”

“If your dad wasn’t amazing, it wouldn’t have hurt so bad,” Justin said. “Your dad just has to know how amazing he is so he won’t hurt people anymore. When you sin, it hurts others and yourself.”

That’s just a taste of the kind of straight talk that Justin uses to begin cracking open the doors to wounded hearts in need of the healing only Jesus can bring. Find out more on August 27, when EWTN kicks off a series that will take you on a journey to high schools across the United States. In each episode, you will experience Justin as he brings young people – and their parents – to Christ.  You will be there as he speaks with teens about the many issues they face such as pornography, broken families, premarital sex, self-mutilation, and lost loved ones.

EWTN’s newest series will premiere ­online at 8:30 p.m. ET, Thursday, August 27, a week before its 10 p.m. ET, Thursday, Sept. 3 premiere on EWTN television! However, the online version, which can only be seen at, contains a special bonus!

Ninety minutes before Episode 1 begins, EWTN invites you to experience a LIVE “Life on the Rock” with Justin and Producer Jeremy Rivera. In the live pre-show, Justin and Jeremy will interact with students from John Carroll High School in Birmingham as well as LOTR Hosts Father Mark and Doug Barry. Justin will also take viewer questions, which can be sent to!

The pre-show will air online from 7 p.m. ET to 8:30 p.m. ET, Thursday, August 27. It will be immediately followed at 8:30 p.m. ET by the first half-hour episode of “You’re Amazing With Justin Fatica.” While Episode 1 of “You’re Amazing” will remain on YouTube, the pre-show will only be available online once!

Why is Ben Carson duping Catholic religious?

This is very disappointing to me. 
Ben Carson appears to me to be deceiving these Catholic nuns (among other Catholic religious).  He tweeted the following image: 

Did Carson tell them he's not the pro-life man he's falsely pretended to be for months?

I saw the photo re-tweeted by a good holy priest today, of Ben Carson speaking to these clapping and smiling nuns.  

This good priest was totally unaware that Ben Carson supports the abortion drug RU-486 and is only pro-life AFTER 6 weeks when a heartbeat can be detected. 

Once I shared this video with the priest...he thanked me and expressed his shock and disappointment... did numerous other pro-lifers on Twitter who were duped by Ben Carson. 

If you know pro-life supporters who are supporting Ben Carson, PLEASE share this information.  Show them the video.  Don't let them be deceived by this man who falsely claims to be pro-life when he's not. 

**Addition: has picked up this story

2nd Addition: 

Dr. Ben Carson’s campaign admits he referred women to abortionists
