Reflecting on our Faith as Catholics

A PARENT who identifies as a “non-binary trans person” is demanding their baby is given the world’s first “gender unknown” birth certificate.

Canadian Kori Doty, who has a moustache and claims to be neither male or female, has been fighting to keep Searyl Atli’s gender off government records since giving birth last November. MORE

Military heads want transgender enlistment hold

Military chiefs will seek a six-month delay before letting transgender people enlist in their services, officials said Friday.

After meetings this week, the service leaders hammered out an agreement that rejected Army and Air Force requests for a two-year wait and reflected broader concerns that a longer delay would trigger criticism on Capitol Hill, officials familiar with the talks told The Associated Press. MORE

Turkish government seizes Syriac Orthodox properties

The government of Turkey has seized more than 50 properties from the Syriac Orthodox Church in the country’s Mardin province.

The government’s religion ministry said that ownership permits had lapsed for the properties in question—including churches, monasteries, and cemeteries. Many of the properties are no longer in regular use, although Syriac officials report that the cemeteries, for instance, are still used on occasion for memorial services.

One of the properties, the Mor Gabriel monastery, has considerable historic value. The 1600-year old monastery is one of the world’s oldest.

An appeal by Syriac officials has been denied. SOURCE

The reasons why Catholics believe, “No one knows when the End will come.”

In as much as I have written on this before, like for the last 47 years, human beings being what they are, continue to find those loop holes that I figure were not necessary to explain. So once again I will try to give a more in depth explanation of this subject which really started in the 1500’s.
To begin with, we have to go to the first prophecy and sign we have for Christ’s return in St. Paul’s letter 2 Thessalonians when he tells us that the Lord cannot come back until the “Man of Sin” the son of perdition comes into the world. I’m sure that all through the century’s there were lots of people accused of being the Man of Sin or the AntiChrist. Pope Leo X got this distinguish title from Martin Luther.

Thousands flee their homes as floods hit Germany

Record floods engulfed the historic eastern German city of Dresden today, swamping its Baroque architecture and driving thousands from their homes.

A tide of debris-laden brown water also submerged other towns on the River Elbe, forcing the evacuation of tens of thousands while volunteers battled to save the centre of Dresden, the capital of Saxony, 120 miles south of Berlin. MORE

Americans consume roughly 400 Million gallons of gasoline a day.

Environmentalists have an honest concern over the welfare of our planet but I don’t think we all realize the energy consumption of our nation. This one statistic of roughly 400 million gallons of gasoline a day is mind boggling. And this is just one product. I can’t even begin to fathom the amount of all the other products. So, yes lets keep switching to cleaner energy as long as we don’t punish the consumer with shortages and higher costs.

In 2016, about 143.37 billion gallons (or about 3.41 billion barrels1) of finished motor gasoline were consumed2 in the United States, MORE

“The Man of Sin” ~ by Francis Panakal,

Paul VI wearing the Jewish Breast Plate in place of a Cross
This book is addressed to Traditionalists Catholics. Its brevity is
international. It is an attempt to identify Paul VI as the main AntiChrist,
whose spirit, on a global scale, is now drawing countless souls into
 his ecumenical apostate church, the mystical body of Satan, inside
of which there can be no salvation.     1983
