We tithe to our church and other charities, as well as donating our time and our talents to the parish. We never paid tuition for our children to attend parochial school.

That's a fact. As a devout Catholic, I just expect allot more out of our school system. It comes down to how society measures success.. The public school system thinks of success as more of earthly achievements. The Catholic school system SHOULD measure success by the number of Saints they send to Heaven. I just don't see that from some of the popular Catholic Schools in the twin cities.

Q: Where is the Hail Mary in the Bible?
A: The Hail Mary is broken up into two parts: 1. Who Mary is. 2. Our prayer to Mary. The first half of the Hail Mary (rows 1-5) is contained in Luke 1. The second half (rows 5-6) come from Luke 1, James 5 and various other Biblical texts. Below the Hail Mary is examined line by line:
The Prayer (line by line)
Where it is in the Bible?
Explanation
1.
Hail Mary, full of Grace
Luke 1:28 (Hail, full of Grace)
The Angel Gabriel greets Mary with very respectful greeting used for royalty. The text doesn’t say “Mary” after Hail but it is implied. Gabriel then proclaims Mary full of Grace (full of God’s own life and love)
2.
The Lord is with you
Luke 1:28 (The Lord is with you)
This is word for word. The Angel Gabriel said that the Lord is with Mary; she is full of his Grace, his own life.
3.
Blessed are you among women
Luke 1:41 (Blessed are you among women)
Elizabeth is filled with the Holy Spirit; she is inspired by the 3rd person of the Blessed Trinity to proclaim that Mary is the most blessed among all women.
4.
And blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus
Luke 1:42 (and blessed is the fruit of your womb)
Elizabeth still inspired by the Holy Spirit proclaims that the fruit of Mary’s womb, the developing Jesus, is blessed. The text doesn’t say “Jesus” after womb, but it is implied, the fruit of her womb is Jesus.
5.
Holy Mary, Mother of God
Luke 1:43 (And why is this granted me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?)
Mary is full of God’s grace; this would make her holy. Mary is the mother of the Lord Jesus Christ who is the 2nd person of the Holy Trinity. Since Jesus is God this makes her the mother of God. She is the mother of the God-Man Jesus, not the mother of the Trinity.
6.
Pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death
James 5:16 (Therefore confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man has great power in its effects)
St. James tells Christians to pray for one another. All the baptized are members of the body of Christ (1Cor 12:12-14), therefore it is right to pray for other members of the body. James goes on to say that the prayers of the righteous have great power. What human (other then Jesus) is more righteous then the Blessed Mother. Though she is in heaven she still hears the prayers of her children on Earth and intercedes for them.

----------
Elizabeth received the Holy Ghost, and prophesied. Her husband received the Holy Ghost, and prophesied. On the day of Pentecost over 120 people (Apostles, Mary and other women) received the Holy Ghost with power, and prophesied, and spoke in tongues.

ALL of Jesus body (the church) can receive that same power; they can prophesy, perform miracles, etc.

Jesus' disciples (students) became Apostles (graduates) and the Church of Jesus Christ is founded upon the message of Jesus, which He taught to them. Yes, it is Apostolic...but not Catholic.

AS USUAL WHEN YOU CATHOLICS CANT DENY A SCRIPTURE

YOU CHANGE THE SUBJECT..

THE APOSTLES WERE NOT UNIVERSAL CHRISTIANS NEITHER WAS JESUS

JESUS CAME TO THE JEWS FIRST..

Joh 1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

Joh 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

Joh 1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

MARY WAS NOT A GENTILE,,,

HEATHENS/GENTILES WERE ONLY SAVED AFTER JESUS SHED HIS BLOOD ON CALVARY...

THE GENTILE CHURCH DID NOT EXIST BEFORE JESUS DIED..

BEFORE THAT WE WERE CONSIDERED DOGS.

IN CHAPTER 15 OF MATHEW

NOTE WHAT THE DISCIPLES AND JESUS SAID TO THE GENTILE WOMAN..

IN
Mat 15:21 Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon.

Mat 15:22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.

Mat 15:23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.

Mat 15:24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Mat 15:25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.
Mat 15:26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.


Mat 15:27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.

Mat 15:28 Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.

YET THE DOGS/GENTILES CLAIM THAT PETER STARTED THEIR CHURCH IN CHAPTER

16 SOMETHING IS TERRIBLY WITH THIS PICTURE...

peter was A JEW

Mat_7:6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

Mat_15:26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.

Mat_15:27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.

I could vent a whole lot about the Catholic school system here in the twin cities. I'm not happy about it. In my opinion, they need Pope Francis to come here and wake em up. Hill-Murray, Cretin, St. Thomas Academy... Its all about academics and creating the financially successful student. That's why many of the students are there. The folks have the money and desire for their kids to be financially successful too.
I went to a public high school. A sort of rough one in a bad neighborhood. And I tell you those Private Catholic school kids were doing more drugs and partying than anyone I knew. Its a joke.
Saint Agnes is the only exception I see. They stress the faith more than anything else. Fitting how they send more boys onto the seminary than any other Catholic high school in MN.
What do you guys think?
You preach a false gospel.

who="HuskerDu" <quoted text> The Apostle's Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord: Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary; suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

----------
The Apostles' Creed is the message/life/teachings of Jesus. It is for all of the catholic (worldwide called ones), who are to be in communion with all other saints; they are to 'forgive those who trespass against them', and look forward to the resurrection. His church is not a fenced in compound for perfect people. It is a hospital for all those who labor and are heavy laden. It has Disciples (who are learning) and Apostles who are teaching. It is my/your/our creed.

Gal 3:26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
Gal 3:27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
Gal 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

There is no 'class' distinction in the church.

It's called Stewardship (Time, Talent, and Treasure). We donate our time and skills to the church and we tithe. We pay no tuition for K through 12. If you prefer you can pay tuition instead/too.

Once our children graduated from HS I continued to give 10%. Some of that goes to the church and some of it goes to other worthwhile charities.

Our Pastor, Fr. McGread, was a strong, nationally know proponent of the Stewardship program. Google "McGread stewardship" or enter the two words at Amazon. You'll get plenty.

YET IN CHAPTER 16 THE DOGS/GENTILES NOT ONLY CLAIM THE CRUMBS

THEY CLAIM THE WHOLE LOAF,,,

Rom 11:13 For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:

Rom 11:14 If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them.

Rom 11:15 For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?

Rom 11:16 For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.

Rom 11:17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;

Rom 11:18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.

Rom 11:19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in.

Rom 11:20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith.

Be not highminded, but fear:

Rom 11:21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.

Rom 11:22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.

Rom 11:23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again.

Rom 11:24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?

You're correct RE: the Catholic schools vs. public.

I also agree that it becomes a status/money thing oftentimes. Too bad for that. On the other hand, they are preparing the students for life via the education they offer and the rigor they apply.

JESUS SAYING HE IS GOD
==========
Jesus refers to Himself as “Son of Man”, He uses "Son of Man" 80 times in the Gospels.
"Son of Man" refers to a figure that Jews recognized as divine.
Daniel wrote (7:13-14):
In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all peoples, nations and men of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.
In Daniel’s vision/prophesy, The “Son of Man” is rightful heir to the divine throne. He’ll rule forever. Nations will worship Him and His kingdom will be unstoppable
==========
Jesus used the personal name of Israel’s God–the name revealed to Moses (Exodus 3:14)–to refer to Himself. And He even used the Torah for context, so no one would misunderstand Him:“Before Abraham was, I AM”(John 8:58).
==========
Mark (14:60-64).
Again the high priest asked him,“Are you the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed One?”“I am,” said Jesus.“And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven.” The high priest tore his clothes.“Why do we need any more witnesses?” he asked.“You have heard the blasphemy. What do you think?” They all condemned him as worthy of death.(63-64).
==========
John 14
8 Philip said,“Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”
9 Jesus answered:“Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father.

And today the word catholic means cult to many who believe, by that we know the word catholic was not coined by a true born-again.

That is also why it's important not to add or subtract from the written Word when one speaks for the church.

AND SO ARE YOU IN YOU IGNORANCE..

JESUS WAS NOT CATHOLIC

HIS PRAYER IN JOHN CHAPTER 17 HE PRAYED

Joh 17:8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.

Joh 17:9 I pray for them:

I pray not for the world,

but for them which thou hast given me;

for they are thine.

THE ROMAN CATHOLICS HAVE REFUSE THE WORD WHICH GOD GAVE UNTO HIS SON

AND ATTACH THEM SELVES TO A god of the universe..

THE BIBLE ALSO SAYS...

Joh_15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

Jas_2:5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?

1Jn_2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

1Jn_3:1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God:

therefore the world(UNIVERSAL BELIEVERS) knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
