Criterion, the newspaper for the Archdiocese, there is an awesome story this
week about our new St. Vincent De Paul food pantry. There was also a great write up about it in
the Brazil Times. There was also a story
this week in the Brazil Times about a new store in downtown Brazil opening up
that traffics in the demonic, crystals, raiki, tarot cards etc…all that Saint
Paul and Moses and the Catholic Church describe as gateways to the demonic.
weekend as well national abortion groups are calling for protests in Catholic
Churches around the USA.
All of this
goes to show, academically, that there are really only 2 sides and no middle
ground for people who just want to sit on the sidelines. It, at the end of the day, comes down to the
