The Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help, the official video from the site of an apparition in Wisconsin that has become the first and only fully-approved one in U.S. history -- with accounts of healings, history of the phenomena, the great fire that nearly destroyed it, accounts of the seer, statements by the bishop and more! CLICK HERE



To note the demise of the societies of men takes only a glance at this week's headlines. A lawyer starts a major criminal case on television by quoting the f-word. The owner of a major league baseball team tells a star player to "shut the ---- up." A major football star is arrested for premeditated murder; this an athlete who has a $40-million contract. Another footballer is carjacked in Philadelphia. A mob of abortion proponents delays a vote in the Texas legislature, which also succumbs to a filibuster that contravenes democracy (preventing a majority from ruling). On the democracy front, there is the egregious, wrong-headed, and predictable ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court on homosexual marriage -- which may lead to serious infringements on religious rights (not to mention horrible repercussions for our young, who will be raised in a culture where marriage, long devalued by the culture at large, has been devalued by another branch of government). The over-reach of the Supreme Court and many lesser courts in this country has stifled democracy -- almost made a mockery of it. In Florida, both houses of the Legislature as well as a governor passed a school-voucher law -- only to see three men on a federal panel void it. Who elected these men? What right do nine Justices have to control the nation's destiny? They do time and again. They have in effect made a sexual disorder into a "right," adopting the tactics of and at the same time mocking legitimate causes of the past, such as the civil rights movement. In California, residents vote to pass an amendment disallowing homosexuals to marry in the same fashion as heterosexuals, but a court voids that vote too and is affirmed by the Supreme Court in its arrogance. This is also the Court that okayed what has thus far been the slaying of fifty million unborn. Yet, they wear black robes of dignity. Psychopathology is granted wide rein. Evil is codified. We are in a culture where celebrities have become porn stars and where porn stars when they die are glorified by publications such as Time Magazine. It is not a conservative-liberal issue; at that level, it is a manifestation of evil. It is not only homosexuals; heterosexuals commit as many sexual sins, including within marriage. The devil has turned "lust" into "love." He has twisted perversion into affection. Homosexuals weep with joy not because they will now get equal monetary compensation but because with each court decision or piece of legislation they feel more legitimized -- though in their hearts they will never attain the true feeling thereof. The entire movement is to make themselves feel better about something that nags at their most basic instincts. The bells of National Cathedral in Washington ring in the Supreme Court decision. For whom do those bells toll? It will be a hate-crime to preach things that the Bible says. A former President cheers negation of a marriage defense law he enacted. We are full of tattoos and jangling body piercings and devoid of rationality. Marijuana is a tourist attraction in Colorado, where it's legal. This disorientation brings us to the precipice, if we weren't there already (but for grace). It also brings us to a place where America seeds itself for future massive division. Mothers flush their young down toilets, around the world; the Church of England allows homosexual bishops. If this all sounds dire, it is simply the truth, which should cause us no fear. The truth simply sets us free. We can have peace in the midst of it all by purging ourselves of our own demons. The military rushes to embrace homosexual soldiers. A school is forced to allow a boy who thinks he is a girl (the devil did this) to use the girl's bathroom (a court again). Murderers get off scot-free, including a mother who kills her five-year-old child. Crucial information is regularly disallowed into court due to what bogs down everyone: technicalities. We are technical, not moral, which dehumanizes. It is the Era of Dehumanization. Scientists would like to combine DNA to fashion a "humanzee" (part man, part ape). We glorify the rich, including those who have stolen our health. Many shake their heads or mouth off on talk shows or write press releases denouncing the immorality but otherwise do nothing. We sit back and watch. Watch the weather. Look also at France, which (after that nation legalized gay marriage) saw even Lourdes inundated and coated with muck (though not the statue of the Immaculate woman). With her, we remain above the floodwaters. With her, we first look to the logs in our own eyes and ask for inner purity (which brings exterior protection).
