Little Sisters of the Poor

This guy writing these few words doubts that he has the standing to share what these good women do daily much less offer their very basics on his webpage.  If so, pls forgive him – he is only doing it because he doubts many others will do so.

Here goes:
·         Here is their website – view/read it please – this guy simply thanks them and thanks God for their mission and their lives:  http://www.littlesistersofthepoor.org/
·         Their mission in their words:
o   By our fourth vow of hospitality we promise God to consecrate ourselves totally to the service of the elderly poor.
o   Continuing the work of Saint Jeanne Jugan, our mission is to offer the neediest elderly of every race and religion a home where they will be welcomed as Christ, cared for as family and accompanied with dignity until God calls them to himself.
o   Our lives are made up of many humble, hidden tasks. We serve the elderly day and night, striving to meet their physical needs, to make them happy and to minister to them spiritually. We accomplish our mission together as a community, each one bringing her gifts and talents to the work of hospitality.
o   The accompaniment and care of the dying is the summit of our vocation. It is a powerful witness of the culture of life. Consecrated hospitality is a witness to the mercy and compassionate love of the heart of Jesus.
o   Here is their mission statement – pls go to:  http://www.littlesistersofthepoor.org/mission-statement/
·         Now why are we – thefundamentals – offering these words and this group and their vocation now?
·         Well, pls read the article linked below.   We doubt you will find it or see it or hear it much less read it elsewhere – go to:  https://www.wsj.com/articles/hes-with-them-1507319325
·         And if you can’t – if not allowed unless you subscribe – pls go to your library or find a WSJournal article written by James Freeman dated October 6, 2017 entitled – “He’s With Them”

Folks the guy writing these few words may well not deserve to even offer a reference to these blessed women but all this guy can say is – please read the article – it tells all of us more in a few minutes than hours/days/weeks/months/yes, even years of watching or reading the 90+% of today’s simply lost American media and their nonsense – endless dopey self destructing ridiculousness.

Thank you Mr. Trump for what you did and much more importantly – Thank You and God Bless You Little Sisters of the Poor.

We also suggest reading a bit more about this situation – pls go to: http://www.becketlaw.org/case/littlesisters/

Wow – why we love America so darn much

One guy – doing what was needed and doing it darn well.

Now this guy here would not have said – “stole the truck” – all Marine Sergeant Taylor Winston did was borrow it.  God bless you Sergeant!

The Buckeye's and their many, many fans

This young capable man is named Baker Mayfield.  He did something the other day that my team has not been able to do in quite a while.  Now he apologized for his home school flag display following the game - hey, good for him.  Meanwhile all this guy wonders is - Michigan pay attention to what he and his team did - we are long overdue.  Go Blue!

Worth Reading - Letter from Rev. Jenkins to Sen. Feinstein

University Seal

Honorable Dianne Feinstein
United States Senate
331 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20510
September 9, 2017

Dear Senator Feinstein:
Considering your questioning of my colleague Amy Coney Barrett during the judicial confirmation hearing of September 6, I write to express my confidence in her competence and character, and deep concern at your line of questioning.
Professor Barrett has been a member of our faculty since 2002, and is a graduate of our law school. Her experience as a clerk for Judge Laurence Silberman of the U.S. Court of Appeals and Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is of the highest order. So, too, is her scholarship in the areas of federal courts, constitutional law and statutory interpretation. I am not a legal scholar, but I have heard no one seriously challenge her impeccable legal credentials.
Your concern, as you expressed it, is that “dogma lives loudly in [Professor Barrett], and that is a concern when you come to big issues that large numbers of people have fought for years in this country.” I am one in whose heart “dogma lives loudly," as it has for centuries in the lives of many Americans, some of whom have given their lives in service to this nation. Indeed, it lived loudly in the hearts of those who founded our nation as one where citizens could practice their faith freely and without apology.
Professor Barrett has made it clear that she would “follow unflinchingly” all legal precedent and, in rare cases in which her conscience would not allow her to do so, she would recuse herself. I can assure you that she is a person of integrity who acts in accord with the principles she articulates.
It is chilling to hear from a United States Senator that this might now disqualify someone from service as a federal judge. I ask you and your colleagues to respect those in whom “dogma lives loudly”—which is a condition we call faith. For the attempt to live such faith while one upholds the law should command respect, not evoke concern.
Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C.
