New Haven, Conn., May 27, 2015 / 11:05 pm (CNA).- During his time as Pope, Saint John Paul II visited the American continent 22 times, traveling everywhere from Boston to Bolivia in an effort to unite the Western Hemisphere in faith.

The Polish Pope’s American endeavors are now being featured in a new documentary with rare footage of his trips to North and South America, highlighting how his presence played a weighty role in shaping their modern day history.

The film was produced by the Knights of Columbus.

“John Paul II brought a great renewal of confidence, excitement and joy to Christian life that was manifested in such events as the canonization of St. Juan Diego in Mexico City and the World Youth Days in Buenos Aires, Denver and Toronto,” stated Supreme Knight Carl Anderson in a press release.

“He also issued a renewed call for human dignity…

A Prescription for Peace

Do your children treat each other disrespectfully? Do you wonder how you will pay next month’s bills? Do you feel angry or agitated toward your spouse? Do you feel depressed or despairing? Perhaps things aren’t all bad but could surely be better.

Maybe your family is doing great, but this sounds very much like a struggling family you know.   The prescription for peace that I describe in The Answer for Families has really been a life changer for my family for many other families around the world.

“In Dana’s book, she spells out the “answer for families:” the Enthronement. Just like the woman at the well, she encountered Jesus, and is now telling everyone about Him. St. John Paul II tells us, “When we have a…

Pithy Closing Thoughts

Published May 27, 2015 by therasberrypalace

Scrolled through the reader tonight picking out the primo articles. I quickly pass over the one too many conspiracy theories in the headlines. NOT the way i roll. The truth is sometimes harder to bear.

Pray for the people in Texas,Oklahoma and other areas hit so hard in the last few days with catastrophic weather. There were people-many young-who spent their last minutes on earth due to these storms.Perhaps they made one decision over another.

We just never know. It’s a reminder to the rest of us to always be grateful even when we think life is treating us badly and to be live each second fully.

As i write this it also occurs to me we don’t always have the answers. We can’t always come up with a reasonable explanation for the way things work out.

Conclusion:life is not always in our hands.

Tomorrow (God willing, that is)i have a few not so pithy comments re Obama and his fake presidency.

Still counting the days till his term is up and hoping we have the brains not to let Hillary get elected. Can we avoid making another HUGE mistake?

Final thought;We’ll be packing the next few weeks and getting ready to leave the place i loved with all my heart. Have to.

This means I will have to get a ride and visit the graves of my parents and other family members, at least once.

For now,it’s time to call it a night. I wish all of you a safe and comfy night. In my prayers.

Pope Francis’ Message for the 5th Centenary of the Birth of St. Philip Neri

“The Church’s state of permanent mission requires of you, spiritual sons of Saint Philip Neri, not to be content with a mediocre life”

Vatican City State, May 26, 2015 ( Staff Reporter | 635 hits

Here is a translation of Pope Francis’ Message for the Fifth Centenary of Saint Philip Neri’s birth.

* * *

To the Reverend Father Mario Alberto Aviles, c.o., Procurator General of the Confederation of the Oratory of Saint Philip Neri.

The fifth centenary of the birth of Saint Philip Neri, born in Florence on July 21, 1515, offers me the happy occasion to unite myself spiritually to the entire Confederation of the Oratory, to remember him who lived for sixty years in the city, deserving the nickname of “Apostle of Rome.” His existential journey was profoundly marked by his relationship with…

Congress Stops Obama From Giving Iran Nuke

Published May 27, 2015 by therasberrypalace

The lamestream media told you:

“The Senate voted 98-1 to approve bipartisan legislation that would require president Obama to let Congress review, and possibly reject, any final nuclear deal with Iran. The bill still must be approved by the House, where Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said he will urge its passage.” USA Today

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
