Weiner, Vitter and Others' 'Unforgivable' Behavior - NYTimes.com

'Weiner-gate'? Really? That's what's dominated the news these past few days?


Evidently not much happened in the world in my days of isolation far away from all the news and social media (a.k.a. ... paradise) if a congressman 'sexting' and sending close-ups of his loaded briefs is a lead story, at least according to Jon Stewart of the 'Daily Show'. (What a 'joy' it was that the first thing I saw on TV after four days of isolation, prayer and rest was the introduction of his 'C#ck Wheel'. Five minutes of incessant penis humor to satirize this current American fixation was all I could take before turning off the TV and diving into another book!)  The end of the world is surely not too far off if the dominant culture and government in the world can be preoccupied with such puerile 'news'. It seems that whenever a politician moves 'below the belt line' they captures the American public's attention (or at least their media) to the virtual exclusion of almost everything else: Monica Lewinsky's 'servicing' of Bill Clinton as an intern in the Oval Office, Barack Obama's conception and birth and now this congressional fool sending photo's of his 'package' to women on the internet.

Yikes! It's already got me yearning to return to the peace and tranquility of the fishing cabin that I just left yesterday.

  1. It seems that reporters don't have much on their radar if this is the story they go after. It doesn't matter what else is happening in the world - there is a sex scandal that needs to be covered! this just shows society's complete preoccupation with all things sexual.

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
