A ROMAN MIRACLE

A pretty maid, a Protestant, was to a Catholic wed; To love all Bible truths and tales, quite early she's been bred. It sorely grieved her husband's heart that she would not comply,
And join the Mother Church of Rome and heretics deny.

So day by day he flattered her, but still she saw no good. Would ever come from bowing down to idols made of wood. The Mass, the host, the miracles, were made but to deceive; And transubstantiation, too, she'd never dare believe.

He went to see his priest and told him his sad tale. "My wife is an unbeliever, sir; you can perhaps prevail; For all your Romish miracles my wife has strong aversion, To really work a miracle may lead to her conversion."

The priest went with the gentleman-he thought to gain a prize. He said, "I will convert her, sir, and open both her eyes." So when they came into the house, the husband loudly cried, The priest has come to dine with us!" “He's welcome," she replied.

And when, at last. the meal was o'er, the priest at once began, To teach his hostess all about the sinful state of man; The greatness of our Savior's love, which Christians can't deny, To give Himself a sacrifice and for our sins to die.

"I will return tomorrow, lass, prepare some bread and wine; The sacramental miracle will stop your soul's decline." "I'll bake the bread," the lady said.“You may," he did reply, "And when you've seen this miracle, convinced you'll be, say I."

The priest did come accordingly, the bread and wine did bless. The lady asked,“Sir, is it changed?" The priest answered, "Yes. It's changed from common bread and wine to truly flesh and blood; Begorra, lass, this power of mine has changed it into God!"

So having blessed the bread and wine, to eat they did prepare. The lady said unto the priest.“I WARN YOU TO TAKE CARE, FOR HALF AN OUNCEOF ARSENIC WAS MIXED RIGHT IN THE BATTER, BUT SINCE YOU HAVE ITS NATURE CHANGED IT CANNOT REALLY MATTER.

The priest was struck real dumb-he looked as pale as death. The bread and wine fell from his hands and he began to gasp for breath. "Bring me my horse!" the priest cried, "This is a cursed home!" The lady replied,“Begone it is you who shares the curse of Rome."

The husband, too, he sat surprised, and not a word did say. At length he spoke,“My dear," said he,“the priest has run away; To gulp such mummery and tripe, I'm not for sure, quite able; I'll go with you and we'll renounce this Roman Catholic fable."

Lidellan's Scott's Greek English Lexicon confirms
that the origins of the word "church" is shrouded
in mystery. On defining the word " Klukos " which
is one of the words church comes from, it says,
"Of or for a lord or master (speaking of a secular
lord). Assumed to be original of the Teutonic kirk,
kirche , or church, but how this Greek name came
to be adopted by the northern nations rather than
the Roman name or Greek name ekklesia has not
been satisfactorily explained."
One thing seems certain. The word "church" never derived from the word "Temple."

And we have the same kind of evidence that the Hindoo Messiah, Chrishna, of India, restored two boys to life who had been killed by the bites of serpents, as that Jesus Christ resurrected Lazarus and the widow’s son of Nain; and as much proof that Bacchus turned water into wine, as that Jesus performed this act six hundred years after.

==========

CANON 1095 (1983) IS THE PART OF CANON LAW LIKELY EGREGIOUSLY ABUSED BY MANY, PRIMARILY AMERICAN, MARRIAGE TRIBUNALS TO GRANT TENS OF THOUSANDS OF ANNULMENTS A YEAR.

The Code of Canon Law released in 1983 radically liberalized the grounds for granting annulments by adding a pseudo-psychological provision. The Dean of the Roman Rota, the supreme marriage tribunal of the Church, asks that it be reformed:

Speaking at a conference in Rome, the dean of the Roman Rota suggested the need for a more rigorous interpretation of a provision in canon law that is cited in many annulment cases.

POLISH BISHOP ANTONI STANKIEWICZ, DEAN OF THE ROMAN ROTA,
THE VATICAN COURT THAT HANDLES MOST MARRIAGE CASES SAID THAT THE CURRENT READING OF CANON 1095 (1983) WOULD SUGGEST THAT “IT’S ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO GET MARRIED, IN VIEW OF THE CURRENT CULTURAL SITUATION.”

CANON 1095 STIPULATES THAT A VALID MARRIAGE MAY BE IMPOSSIBLE BECAUSE OF “CAUSES OF A PSYCHOLOGICAL NATURE.”

EVEN COUPLES MARRIED FOR DECADES WHO RAISED CHILDREN AND WERE PILLARS OF THE COMMUNITY, AND WHO EXHIBITED LITTLE OR NO DISCORD, CAN GET ANNULMENTS WHEN ONE OR BOTH PARTIES BECOME DISSATISFIED AND FILE FOR DIVORCE.

IT MAKES IT SO THAT, INSTEAD OF MARRIAGE BEING INDISSOLUBLE, IT IS VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO HAVE AN INDISSOLUBLE MARRIAGE.

All marriages have rocky periods or one or both partners with some psychological shortcoming. Thus, no marriage is really valid, with the way the law is interpreted now] Some Church tribunals—particularly in the US—have interpreted that canon liberally to mean that a marriage can be annulled if the parties show any signs of psychological problems.[Any signs.......think about that]

NOTING THAT VERY FEW PEOPLE ARE ENTIRELY FREE OF PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEMS, POLISH BISHOP ANTONI STANKIEWICZ, DEAN OF THE ROMAN ROTA, THE VATICAN COURT THAT HANDLES MOST MARRIAGE CASES STANKIEWICZ SUGGESTED THAT THE CANON SHOULD BE UNDERSTOOD TO REFER TO PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEMS SERIOUS ENOUGH TO PREVENT SOMEONE FROM GIVING PROPER CONSENT IN A MARITAL VOW.

“We must reaffirm the innate human capacity to marry,” he said.

Nothing is likely to happen until the Canon Law is reformed, and it will be a darned long row to hoe after that.

Another element of this trend in tribunal conduct is that, based on their use of psychological problems like immaturity, depression, mania, etc., as grounds for divorce, it can and has been argued that EVERYONE with those problems is not validly married. SUCH LIBERAL INTERPRETATIONS HAVE, THUS, MADE A MOCKERY OF THE SACRAMENT.

As the whole pathway of religious history is thickly bestudded with miracles wrought in all ages and countries, and every page of the oriental bibles and religious books is literally loaded down with the relation of these marvelous prodigies said to have been wrought by their Gods, Demigods, and crucified Saviors, it places a writer in a quandary to know were to begin to make a selection.

Right, God created Adam and Eve....and everything else....that's what the Church says. Again, what's your point?
6000 years. Is that in human years or God's years?
Look at that site again ..under the Catholic position ..human evolution

THat is nothing like what the bible says about creating Adam .

Nothing in the bible about us coming from other biological forms .

We did not slither out of the ooze..to them be descended from monkey ancestors or whatever junk is coming out of science these,days,

You folks say it's the same because your Church is doing a verbal dance with science ...which came straight FRIM those who deny G is created us,..You all mix it in then say God created us that way .out if other biological forms,

I know this stuff has been in the schools for a while ..But even Darwin is not believed by many .

A theory is changeable..Faith in the Truth of the bible is not.

And your Church is doing what you all accuse us of..changing its interpretation of the Truth .

That is nit my bible nor my CATECHISM for that matter .
Nor what the nuns taught me .

And if your nuns and priests teach you different now..That proves my point..changing interpretation of SCRIPTURE.

They were civil awards. They wouldn't face criminal charges because the statute of limitations had expired. The guilty priests are dead, incarcerated or no longer priests. All accusations are now (and have been for several years) immediately referred to the police and the priest suspended and removed from any contact with laity.
There are no such rules in most protestant denominations and for the most part they don't keep records or notify other communities if they move on. That's still a problem.
**********
Our group has strong measures for dealing with such people. They will lose their licenses.
I have news paper accounts of priests who have been transferred to another parish...and they were not removed from contact with laity.
I'm sorry. I know that it is a painful matter, but I don't believe that you are getting the truth.
