Stewardship
November 9, 2014
We call upon our fellow Patriots to
Stand up for God and Country.
This Thursday we will continue our Mission to bring the message to our fellow Americans
that we cannot succeed as a Nation without the Blessing of The Creator. Our so-called
leaders have abandoned the Covenant secured by the Founding Fathers (and Mothers) to
dedicate this nation to the greater glory of God.
That dedication and the Covenant must be restored for this nation to resume its role as the
leading example of Liberty under God.
We serve no man.
IN GOD WE TRUST.
All concerned Americans are invited to show our support for returning this Nation to
God with our prayer to reclaim this land for the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; once
again to restore our Judeo-Christian heritage that built this nation.
Please invite your pastor, priest, rabbi or deacon to participate in this peaceful event to
awaken the Spirit of America. We will display our signs and banners to citizens
who are otherwise occupied in daily chores in traffic locations mentioned below.
It is our hope to build this event into a weekly congregation of concerned citizens
who need to fight for the future of America.

FREEDOM FROM RELIGION.

Get Informed! What to Know About Ebola and other Viruses
As we enter into flu season and live with the threat of the Enterovirus D68 and Ebola, it would
be advisable that people with cold or other symptoms consider staying home when not
feeling well. A couple of options available are to pray Holy Mass on Sunday morning on the
ION Television Network at 9:30am offered by our Bishop or one of the priests of our
Diocese. The other alternative would be to watch and pray Holy Mass from Irondale, Alabama
that airs on the Eternal Word Television Network.
A further concern for people attending Mass is feeling the need to hold hands at the Our
Father and/or to shake hands at the Kiss of Peace. Holding hands at the “Pater Noster” is not
in keeping with any liturgical guidelines and is simply a local custom. It is also suggested
that one not feel compelled to shake hands with anyone during the exchange of Peace, if this
is done at Mass, which also is not mandated by proper liturgical guidelines. A simple smile
or bow of the head with the word “Peace” is more than sufficient.
In God’s Image
One day my granddaughter asked one of her uncle’s a profound question, “God can see everything, right?” Her
uncle replied, “Yes, God can see everything.” Shannon asked the next most logical question, “How many eyes
does God have.” Her uncle, perhaps recalling that we are made in God’s image, answered, “Two eyes, I guess.”
Shannon paused, thought for a time and finally concluded, “I think God must have a thousand eyes.” Who can
argue with the logic of a four-year old? If God sees everything, He must be well equipped.
My granddaughter’s questions are actually quite revealing in that they express a youthful wisdom. Not hung up
on the purely physical aspects of what it means to be created in God’s image, Shannon seems to have an innate
sense that God’s greatness, majesty and power don’t confine Him to human limitations or expectations. Not that
we were supposed to have one thousand eyes, but we were created to share not only God’s likeness in
appearance, but much more in the glory of His spirit.
Sometimes in the world of today, the formula appears to be reversed. We select what we choose to believe and
fashion religion to conform to ourselves. Faith seems easier when it is made more comfortable, but in fact faith
eventually dies when it is separated from the Truth, or is transformed into something deceptive.
Intellectuals throughout the course of history have convinced themselves that there is no God. In their view, the
concept of a God is something formulated by weak, uninformed minds, and must therefore be nothing more than
fantasy. But that begs a very big question; what point would there be for nature to produce a species with the
ability to inquire as to the source of life at all? If the point of life is simply to survive, reproduce and adapt, there
would never be any reason for a creature to have an ability to simply wonder why it exists or what happens after
it dies?
Perhaps one proof of God’s existence is found in this very process of asking, “Why?” For just as a four year old
reminds us, to every answer there is an additional question. In essence, God displays His infiniteness by our
never ending inquiries that assure us there is no end to His limitless wonder.
“God fashioned man with His own hands (that is, the Son and the Holy Spirit) and impressed His own form on
the flesh He had fashioned, in such a way that even what was visible might bear the divine form.” (CCC 704)
“In no way is God in man’s image. He is neither man nor woman. God is pure spirit in which there is no place
for the difference between the sexes. But the respective “perfections” of man and woman reflect some of the
infinite perfection of God: those of a mother and those of a father and husband. (CCC 370)
“It is in Christ, ‘the image of the invisible God,’ that man has been created ‘in the image and likeness of the
Creator. It is in Christ, Redeemer and Savior, that the divine image, disfigured in man by the first sin, has been
restored to its original beauty and ennobled by the grace of God. The divine image is present in every
man.” (CCC 1701, 1702)
The French priest Pierre Teilhard de Chardin put it this way. “We are not human beings having a spiritual
experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.”
EVANGELISM IN ACTION: Allow God to do the forming, and we to conform.

A prayer before connecting to the internet
Almighty and eternal God, who created us in Thine image and bade us to
seek after all that is good, true and beautiful, especially in the divine
person of Thine Only-begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, grant, we
beseech Thee, that, through the intercession of Saint Isidore, Bishop and
Doctor, during our journeys through the internet we will direct our hands
and eyes only to that which is pleasing to Thee and treat with charity and
patience all those souls whom we encounter. Through Christ our Lord.
Amen. Composed by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf.

Below Testimonies from Silent No More Website (Thousands of testimonies from women all over who
chose to have an abortion):
Katie IN., United States: "The cold, dark, heart-breaking experience at the abortion clinic slowly infiltrated every area of my
life. It's so ironic that the abortion clinic tells you how quick and safe the procedure is but never mentions that the effects are
destructive and will last a lifetime.”
Karli MI,, United States: "After years of pain, I finally went through a healing program and was able to turn it over to God and
receive His forgiveness and that's why I'm 'silent no more!”
Erica GA., United States: "It is my desire in life to help women who have experienced the same pain and tell others of my
regret, so I might help them make the choice I was not strong enough to make."
Erica IL., United States: "I had an abortion. It was my choice. I regret it."
Debbie MT., United States: “I’m living proof that you never get over an abortion. Every time someone dies or I see a couple
struggling to become pregnant, I’m reminded of how precious life is. If I can offer one bit of advice to a young woman in a
similar situation to mine, it’s don’t have an abortion. You’ll regret it the rest of your live, just like I have.”
Kristin FL., United States: “I spent two years of guilt, self hatred, resentment anger before I decided to own up to my mistake.
This generation has taught us that it is okay to abort our children. Not only that, but we are told that we shouldn’t feel guilty or
broken because of it.”
Lis CA., United States: “In memory of my child, I will share my story with as many people as possible, in hopes they will take
my story to heart….Please hear me, please trust me, abortion is not the easy way out. The reality of the decision will come back
to haunt you later in life, (if not right away), emotionally and health wise!”
All ages are welcome to join our
choir. We rehearse on Thursday at
