  • Who is the next Pope?

    The announcement Pope Benedict XVI made on Feb. 11 stunned the whole world and it’s 1.2 billion Catholics.

    He declared: “After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths, due to an advanced age, are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry.” This week is the last week for Pope Benedict in his spiritual leadership as the Pope. He is planning to spend the rest of his life in prayer, studies and personal reflections.

  • When perfect isn’t enough, woman pressures her family

    A few weeks ago, I watched a movie on TV called “The Perfect Family.”

    Right away, just by the title, you know they’re not perfect.

    The main character is Eileen, the mother of the family. A devout Catholic, she attends Mass every day, and at confession she confesses every sin she can think of down to her gossipy thoughts.

    She serves communion and delivers food to the homebound. She’s careful to pray before meals and keeps a family altar in her home.

  • County attorney assists with guardian petitions to help local families

    The last thing anyone wants to think about is not being able to take care of oneself or having to depend on loved ones. Worse, yet, is having to be a loved one and not being able to take care of them.

    Even though these are not pleasant things to think about, they are things that every responsible adult should consider. Nobody plans on having a stroke, being in an automobile accident or developing Alzheimers or dementia. Sometimes life’s catastrophes cannot be avoided, but oftentimes, they can be planned for.

  • God works for the good of all as in this story of a heavenly hole-in-one

    There were three people in heaven who decided one day to play a round of golf at the Heavenly Country Club.

    The first man stepped up to the tee, hit his drive, and watched as it headed straight for the water hazard. Just as the ball was about to land in the water, he raised his club, pointed it out over the water, and the waters parted, allowing the ball to land on dry ground. He walked out between the two columns of water and hit a perfect second shot, right in the middle of the green. One of his partners said, “Wow, good shot, Moses!”
