Saint of the Day Quote: Saint John the Dwarf

Humility and the fear of God are above all virtues. Saint John the Dwarf

PopeWatch: Subtle

From the General Audience of the Pope yesterday:   Dear brothers and sisters: In our catechesis on the Acts of the Apostles,

The Value of Work

Glorious St. Joseph, model of all who are devoted to labor, obtain for me the grace to work in the spirit of


  1. Lock in on the legitimate qualifier to “redistribution of economic benefits,” embrace the Reagan model, in which a rising tide lifts all boats, and declare victory over the social justice warriors.

  2. Harping on it constantly but if one reads “Jesuits” by Malachi Martin one may easily understand Pope Francis. It is Modernism, Relativism and Inculturation as propounded by radical Jesuits for many years. The Marxist tone of the Papal statement above to the UN assumes a socialized New World Order. Intellectually I think the pope is not exactly astute. Economically he is a provincial naif wedded to absurd Marxist philosophy from 150 years ago. No wonder Argentina and Vene zuela are economic basket cases. But they can always blame the US.

  3. The Roman Pontiff, speaking to the United Nations, a pro-abortion and anti-Catholic body if there ever was one, was pleading for “the legitimate redistribution of economic benefits by the State…..”

    I wish I could have seen St. John Paul II and Pope Benedict in person. I would not cross the street to look at the current Roman Pontiff. I would travel to the next state to avoid him.

    I hope the Roman Pontiff, when he visits Poland on World Youth Day, extols the benefits of socialism. That I want to see.

  4. Even if this was equitable it leaves out the corruption factor. When it comes to money corruption always follows. Even the Vatican ( Vatican Bank) is not immune to it. As a traditional Catholic, who goes to confession and receives the Blessed Sacrament at Mass, I wish, I wish the Church hierarchy would once point this out and shame (judge) the people who are breaking the 7th and 10th commandments by their corruption.

  5. “A contribution to this equitable development will also be made both by international activity aimed at the integral human development of all the world’s peoples and by the legitimate redistribution of economic benefits by the State, as well as indispensable cooperation between the private sector and civil society.”
    Does “indispensable cooperation” mean extorted? or how would Pope Francis go about getting such “indispensable cooperation” when Francis has crushed the hearts of truly charitable, conservative Catholics in the Friars and Sister of the Immaculate, and Cardinals Burke and Pell?

  6. It is hard to stay “disinterested” in money. As a conservative I hope to keep money and it’s power in a healthy perspective. Liberals have the same problem…exalting money unable to not give too much attention to money- a claiming freedom from it but obsessed by it and it’s perceived power.
