The Cult

Is it just in the D.C. Metro area or is everyone else seeing images of Obama plastered on cars, T-shirts, water bottles, and key chains? Think Mao or Che Guevara. It is so pervasive that when I saw the new Pepsi advertising campaign I thought the Pepsi symbol was more Obama worship. Seems a little too similar to me!

Now we have the editor of Newsweek comparing Obama to God:

This is not healthy for our nation. This is not healthy for democracy.

One more reason I will be on my knees praying to the real God!

I'm speechless...and sad. Unbelievable. I am so glad I know the real God...if Obama was my god, I think it would be pretty depressing. Ours is SO much better!
I thought that the pepsi symbol changed to look too similar to the obama symbol and mentioned it to my family and you know it wasn't until I mentioned it did they realize the similarity. Way too subtle and sneaky... I think. The whole mention of the him being "above everything" or "like God"...sounds to me like having some "fear of the Lord" would remind this man of his place as well as it reminds me of my place on my knees in prayer for our country and our faith. I love your blog, I just started reading it, keep up the great work.
In Christ,

Yes, the Pepsi symbol has changed recently. I hadn't noticed the similarity to Obama's logo until you pointed it out, but defintitely YES, it is there.

Scary how we have come to the point where our president is recognized as a brand.

Parent Letter from a Catechist

I am going to be teaching seventh grade CCD this year. We do most of the preparation for confirmation during this year since Confirmation is usually scheduled for the fall of the eighth grade year.I have composed a letter to the parents to try and keep them active in their children's religious education. I thought I would post it here and get your feedback before I send it out in a couple of weeks.

I am privileged to be your child’s seventh grade CCD teacher for the 2006-2007 school year. This is a very important year. We will focus on your child’s preparation for confirmation. Of course, you have already been preparing your child for this sacrament for many years. You are the primary catechist for your child. You show how important your Faith is by making Mass attendance a top priority and by family prayer.

Confirmation is one of the Sacraments of Initiation. It is a beginning. It is not a graduation. This year we will work to solidify the foundation of your child’s Catholic Faith.…

Dispelling the Myth of the Travel Dispensation

One of the fun things about having a site meter on my blog is I can see which posts garner the most attention. I can also see how people find my blog. One of the most read posts from my two years of blogging is this one that discusses finding Mass while traveling. I would like to think this post is so popular because it is so well written. The truth of the matter is that it generates so much traffic because I use the words “travel dispensation for Mass”—as in “There is no such thing as a travel dispensation for Mass.” I would guess that nearly a dozen times every week, someone googles “travel dispensation for Mass” and finds my blog. I wonder how many of these folks are poor souls trying to assuage their Catholic guilt with evidence of a justification for missing Mass while on the road.

I know that when I tell my seventh grade CCD students that attending Mass every Sunday is a commandment (one of the top ten!) and not just a pretty good idea they are amazed. Missing Mass has become so …

United Breaks Guitars

This guy is really talented and what a creative way to get your message across. I think he captured the "indifferent employee" perfectly. They don't just work for airlines. I think I ran into them at Walmart on Friday!
