Anthony has returned! He posts his sick obsession of using profanity on Easter Sunday the same day he was EM at the 10:30!

What an example of a catholic Christian "man."

Speaking of Anthony and his many "obsessions".-- how coincidental- on week before the anniversary of Jim's birthday!! Last year his rants were all about his anger at the well wishes we sent to Jim on his 60th. Now Anthony aka "you're killing me man"
MIMBO returns to stir the pot once again .

How utterly pathetic and quite frankly.. Sick

Why?? The strange connection of anger and puppy love is a case for the experts!

When will he seek help? Is there anyone in his family who can reach him?

Bruser, great to hear from you and yes, Easter blessings
to you and your family!

The very ill individual who posts this and other forums, has reached a new low even by his standards. He is an incredibly sick individual consumed with rage and shame

Such an individual needs to be shunned. He is not worthy of decent discourse .
I have come to believe that his behavior is such that it is an outlet for the attention he lacks from family and the pastor.

Truly a very sad and pathetic soul.

I will, despite his outbursts, continue to pray for him.°

Frank, good to hear from you. I still inwardly feel that it is not
Anthony any longer that is posting, but someone else in his family probably one of his children. The outbursts and the nonsense of those posts belie even an obsessed pastor loving Eu like he. It may be that Anthony isn't even reading these posts, and if he is, that his Child may be posting for him,which is even sicker as it is an indication that he is teaching his warped views to his children. I feel this inside me, not that I know anything more than anyone else that he rants against. I have gotten past allowing his sickness and UN-catholic behavior cause me to answer him in kind. He like the other agitator on another site, who is a wicker, that loves to stir up the pot and try to demean the catholic faith, and only has been posting now and again. She is a Topix Editor, that Anthony has never attacked, even though she tries to diminish Jesus, and God, and to mock them, claiming that she does not believe that they ever had existed, and tries to put down our holidays. My complaints about her to topix may have had some results, as she only has been posting occasionally.
But I have stood fast to my resolve to not let them deter me from my will to post what I feel is relevant to our faith. I feel bad that you other folks have been drawn in to "Itchy Watch's" non-catholic actions, and beliefs. We may never learn the truth of this situation, and prayers for his family in addition to him may be what is needed.

'Morning-after' pill can be given to all ages, judge rules
April 5, 2013 by JOHN RILEY / john.riley@newsday.com


A federal judge in Brooklyn has ruled that the so-called "morning-after pill" for contraception should be made available to women of all ages over the counter, without a prescription and without point-of-sale restrictions.

U.S. District Judge Edward Korman found that existing restrictions of the Food and Drug Administration and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services limiting access to women 17 and older were "arbitrary and capricious."

Korman said the agencies had bowed to "political pressure" from the White House, and said there was no health risk in making it available even to girls as young as young as 10 or 11. He said the imprudence of children that young having intercourse was not part of the statutory standard for drug regulation.

"The standards are the same for aspirin and contraceptives," Korman wrote.

He ordered that his ruling should take effect in 30 days. The lawsuit over the morning-after pill -- known as the Plan B contraceptive -- was initiated by reproductive rights groups.

Currently, women under 17 have to have a prescription, and women older than 17 can only purchase the pill at a pharmacy with identification.

Officials at the Department of Justice and HHS in Washington had no immediate comment on whether the government would appeal.

The Center for Reproductive Rights, one of the groups that had sued to overturn restrictions on the pill, lauded Korman's decision.

"Today science has finally prevailed over politics," said Nancy Northup, president of the group. "This landmark court decision has struck a huge blow to the deep-seated discrimination that has for too long denied women access to a full range of safe and effective birth control methods."

Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards said quick and easy access to the morning-after pill was safe even for young teens, and necessary to allow girls to avoid unintended pregnancies due to ineffective contraception or unprotected sex.

"This ruling is good policy, good science and good sense," she said.

Planned Parenthood of Nassau County, JoAnn Smith, president, said her organization welcomes the ruling.

"We are very, very, very happy for women of all ages. It expands access to birth control and to the health care that women need in order to prevent unintended pregnancies," she said. "We know that teen pregnancy is higher than it should be in Nassau County, and not all teens have access to sex education courses which would provide them with the information they need.

"If you make the decision to be sexually active, you must practice safe sex and that means not only birth control, but also condoms to avoid sexually transmitted diseases. This [morning-after] pill is only a backup. Accidents do happen and this is the safety belt to make sure and to prevent unintended pregnancies."

Why the vile rage from Anthony the EM? And posting these profane rants on Easter Sunday?? He had a big smile up on the altar, glad and relieved I'm sure to see his "buddy" (Lol) Msgr. Jim back at the 10:30 mass after many weeks away. So where does this rage come from? This won't surprise Toni Pom Pom though. It will sadden her, because she feels so sorry for pathetic Anthony and his family, but she knows the prayers can't let up for him.

The reason (other than Anthony being an EU minister)that Communion should be received only on the tongue:

The Doctrine of the Church Tells Us ...

Communion 'on the Tongue
Is an Apostolic Tradition

Statement from Popes, Saints & Church Councils

St Sixtus I (circa 115)
The sacred Vessels are not to be handled by others than those consecrated to the lord

St. Basil'the Great, Doctor of
the Church (330-379): "The
right to receive Holy communion in the hand is permitted only in times of persecution."
St. Basil the Great considered
Communion in the hand so ir­regular that he did not hesitate to consider it a grave fault.

The Council of Saragossa

circa (380): Excommunicated any­one who dared continue receiving Holy' Communion by hand. This was confirmed by the Synod of Toledo.

The Synod of Rouen (650):

Condemned Communion in the hand, to halt widespread abuses that occurred from this practice, and as a safeguard against sacrilege.

6th Ecumenical Council, at
Constantinople (680-681):

Forbid the faithful to take the Sacred Host in their hand,

St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-
1274): "Out of reverence to­wards this sacrament [the Holy Eucharist], nothing touches it, but what is consecrated: hence the corporal and the chalice
are consecrated, and likewise the priest's hands, for touch­ing this sacrament." (Summa
Theologica, Part III, Q. 82 Art.
3, Rep. Ob]. 8.),

The Council of Trent (1545- 1565): "The fact that only the priest gives Holy Communion with his consecrated hands is an Apostolic Tradition."

Pope Paul vrr (1963-1978):

"This method [on the tongue]
must be retained." (Memoriale Domini)

Pope John Paul II:(1963-1978)
"To touch the sacred species and to distribute them with their own hands is a privilege of the
or­dained." (Dominicae Cenae, 11)

The receiving of communion at the Latin mass is only received on the tongue, as our Pope's have reconfirmed time and time again. Pope JPII, and Pope Benedict had made this statement, and held to it. It was the vatican council II mis-conceptions
by all too willing Bishops that have lead to the
apostasy, and Heresies that we are experiencing today, and which threaten to bring down condemnation from GOD upon us if we do not cease the proliferation of sexual immoralities.

Ninth Day
"Today bring to Me the Souls who have become Lukewarm,

and immerse them in the abyss of My mercy. These souls wound My Heart most painfully. My soul suffered the most dreadful loathing in the Garden of Olives because of lukewarm souls. They were the reason I cried out:'Father, take this cup away from Me, if it be Your will.' For them, the last hope of salvation is to run to My mercy."

Most compassionate Jesus, You are Compassion Itself. I bring lukewarm souls into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart. In this fire of Your pure love, let these tepid souls who, like corpses, filled You with such deep loathing, be once again set aflame. O Most Compassionate Jesus, exercise the omnipotence of Your mercy and draw them into the very ardor of Your love, and bestow upon them the gift of holy love, for nothing is beyond Your power.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon lukewarm souls who are nonetheless enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. Father of Mercy, I beg You by the bitter Passion of Your Son and by His three-hour agony on the Cross: Let them, too, glorify the abyss of Your mercy. Amen.

Let me be the first to wish the pastor a happy 61st birthday this Sunday, April 7th.

As a member of the class of 1970, Jim was always considered lucky back then since he was one of the first to be 18years old and therefore eligible to drive that summer while the majority of us didn't reach the magic number until the late summer or fall of 1970.

It's funny how these are the memories and milestones that stick in your head.

He JIM, remember the Nova?? How about sly stone playing on the eight (8) track??

Great memories--!

Enjoy your day-- send my best to mom and patty

The New Plenary Indulgence

During the course of Jesus' revelations to Saint Faustina on the Divine Mercy He asked on numerous occasions that a feast day be dedicated to the Divine Mercy and that this feast be celebrated on the Sunday after Easter. The liturgical texts of that day, the 2nd Sunday of Easter, concern the institution of the Sacrament of Penance, the Tribunal of the Divine Mercy, and are thus already suited to the request of Our Lord. This Feast, which had already been granted to the nation of Poland and been celebrated within Vatican City, was granted to the Universal Church by Pope John Paul II on the occasion of the canonization of Sr. Faustina on 30 April 2000. In a decree dated 23 May 2000, the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments stated that "throughout the world the Second Sunday of Easter will receive the name Divine Mercy Sunday, a perennial invitation to the Christian world to face, with confidence in divine benevolence, the difficulties and trials that mankind will experience in the years to come." These papal acts represent the highest endorsement that the Church can give to a private revelation, an act of papal infallibility proclaiming the certain sanctity of the mystic, and the granting of a universal feast, as requested by Our Lord to St. Faustina.

I guess he doesn't realize that the sun doesn't rise and set on him,
and that Msgr has real friends not the obsessive hanger-oners. what
a shame. And his birthday fell on Divine Mercy Sunday.

For Anthony R. EM OF Our Lady of LOURDES MASSAPEQUA PARK NY
A pro choice "so called" catholic who distributes communion every week at mass--

PHILADELPHIA, March 22, 2013 ( LifeSiteNews.com )– The pro-choice movement is having a terrible week. Kermit Gosnell’s trial began on Monday, and ever since there has been a non-stop litany of horrors pouring out of the Pennsylvania courtroom where the abortionist is facing the death penalty over his alleged role in the deaths of seven newborn infants and one of his former clients.

According to former employees, Gosnell’s preferred method of committing “abortions” was to deliver living babies, and then snip their spinal cords. Meanwhile his staff had little or no medical training, Gosnell didn’t bother to clean his antiquated and rusting equipment between procedures, and the abortionist inexplicably stored jars containing dismembered feet of babies in his clinic.

But while reports about the nauseating conditions inside Gosnell’s abortion clinic aren’t doing much to inspire consumer confidence in the abortion industry, by far the worst thing for abortion supporters is the way the trial is laying bare for all to see the grotesque subversion of logic that lies at the heart of legalized abortion.

Gosnell, after all, faces the death penalty for allegedly killing newborn babies that, in many states, it would have been perfectly legal for him to kill a few minutes earlier. In fact, if he had killed the babies a few minutes earlier, the law in many states would have defended Gosnell’s actions as constitutionally protected “healthcare.”

The abortionist’s crime isn’t therefore the fact that he killed these babies, but that he was too unskilled to kill them in the “right” way. Kill the baby one instant, and it is “reproductive healthcare.” Kill the baby the next instant, and it is capital murder. This is the outrageous contradiction created by legalized abortion.

This was driven home in a brutal fashion this week when the prosecution projected a photo taken of one of Gosnell’s alleged victims –“Baby A”– on a screen in the courtroom. Baby A was about 30 weeks gestation at the time of his death. After he was born, Gosnell reportedly slit his spinal cord and then threw him in a box, where he writhed for several moments.

Have you no soul Anthony????? No moral compass at all??
