A Happy and Holy 2008

Happy New Year The new year begins (as always) with the Solemnity of Mary the Mother of God.

I thought I would end the year with some FAMILY links. The family is under attack in the UK in new and scarier ways. Jackie reports on more pressure from our sinister-ministers to get sex ed taught to little kids.

She says "So we start the New Year with more of the same! The government wanting to corrupt our little children...well they're NOT getting mine! Even if i have to devote the whole year in the fight for our children's be it!" I add my vote to that!

Meanwhile Fr Ray Blake and Paulinus are reporting on the move to make Catholic bishops explain why they want Catholic schools to teach ... Catholicism!

It is the family that is the root of !ny community, of a nation. I am reading the Charlotte Mason Home Schooling series. Book Two is Parents and Children which I have linked with the short summary. Miss Mason writes as a high Anglican and her philosophy works well for Catholic parents whether they home educate or not.

Familiaris Consortio is my favourite encyclical.

The Holy Father has set his sights on the family for the New Year with his message THE HUMAN FAMILY, A COMMUNITY OF PEACE.

Everytime I read about England it sounds as if it has lost its Moral Compass somewhere????

Yeah Marie-we have replaced it with the golden one. Pray for us here-the blood of the martyrs must really be calling out to God.

God Bless you and yours in 2008. You were in my prayers this morning at Mass.

God bless you and your family. I must pray for England. I hope to visit there sometime. Probably won't happen for at least a couple of years, but I keep hoping and if it's God's will, it will. Please pray for my friend, Kat, who lives is Wales. She's going through a tremendous amount of trials and temptations right now. Her family is under attack big time! Pray that she'll be illumined by the Truth and Light of Christ, and come to her senses, as she's seemingly fallen for the tactics and lies of the enemy of our souls. ~ PAX
