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 / [email protected]
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."

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
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.

"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??
Enjoy your day-- send my best to mom and patty
#8918 Apr 6, 2013
I second the Happy 61st Birthday wish to Jim! We go all the way back to STA grade school! But I knew him in high school, class of '70 too! A lot of good times. Frank, I can't believe you remembered the Nova! Wonder if anyone is going to bring any baked goods to church! Lol

The Feast Of Mercy
Feast of Mercy
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.

Another sad no Msgr. Jim on Sunday for Anthony.
And on his birthday too. Msgr. Jim has a lot of things to do and is a very busy guy.

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.
Happy Birthday Jim

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 Gosnells 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, Gosnells 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 didnt 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 Gosnells abortion clinic arent 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 Gosnells actions as constitutionally protected healthcare.
The abortionists crime isnt 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 Gosnells 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??

Frank, People like Anthony believe they are good catholics. Follow their own beliefs, ignore the 2000 year old teachings of the church, know little or nothing about the Catholic Catechism. Believe the Pope is just a political figurehead, ignores any Bishop, or priest that does not conform to his daily living actions. And believes that what you have posted is an isolated case. When in truth, it is the Norm not the exception.
I believe that what you and WHG, and others that knew Msgr "when" must be having an impact both on Msgr Lisante, and Anthony. Msgr Jim had better take the time to examine those who "fawn over him", as whether he knows it or not, he is distracting them from following Jesus, and giving all of their love and respect to the only Savior,
Jesus Christ. His hair would be on fire if he took the time to see what his EU has posted about what he believes,and imagine the embarrassment that he would experience if this information about his infatuated EU were to be exposed. We had an old saying years ago, "show me your friends, and I will tell you what you are". Imagine the anti-abortion group learning about Anthony's posts and that he was an EU and close follower of Msgr Jim? I would never do such a thing, as I believe that to be despicable behavior for a Catholic to do. Just as we will have to do when we stand before Jesus, so too will the Bishops, Pastors, and Priests & Laypeople . The difference is that they were in charge of a great number of "sheep" that Jesus told Peter to "Tend my lambs", then the second time, "Shepherd my sheep", and the third time Jesus asked him,"Simon, son of John, do you love me "Feed my sheep". A true shepherd lays down his life "for the sheep". A True shepherd, "Feeds the sheep,not with regular food, but with the bread of life, which is Jesus' words, and doctrine, and his Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity every Mass. Unfortunately Frank, I believe the Cardinals, Bishops, Pastors, and Priest, have become more caretakers, and administers of the physical Church, and not caretakers of the sheep, and the Spiritual Church, where Jesus resides always, inside the souls of those who love Jesus.
Sorry, I feel that I am getting on the soapbox again, but my passion for Jesus can not be contained, nor should it be. I try to let everyone that I meet and speak to everywhere I go of GOD,
Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. But that is me, and not for everyone else.
I pray every day for a clear conscience, and pray that everyone else will try to do the same.
Dominus Vobiscum, Frank, Lou, WHG, Toni..et al.
