Meatless Fridays with hydroponically grown wheat grass, dill, basil, microgreens, tomatoes, spinach, beets, red kale and more.
Mark Miller at Indoor Grower’s World has been teaching me all about hydroponics, aquaponics and growing food in a controlled environment. I must admit it’s kind of exciting to eat food you’ve grown yourself.
Yuliyan Stoyanov and his wife are Bulgarian concert violinists of extreme talent. They came to the US 14 years ago on student visas, and he subsequently earned a PhD and became a faculty member at the University of Cincinnati. They have two US-born children, and they are all now being deported.
Consider for a moment that the same government deporting these fine people is importing thousands of young Muslim men who are statistically likely to rape our women and kill us as part of their Hijrah. Indeed, Europe is now experiencing what all the leftists (even ‘Christians’), here in the US promised us a year ago would NOT happen, and ISIS has promised to do the same to us. This is what you religious liberty fanatics live and breathe, right? “All religions are equal and deserving of our protection”.
The geniuses who work for the federal government believe Stoyanov has no exceptional abilities. Listen to him perform and decide for yourself.#ReturnHeadToSand
At the bottom of this commentary you’ll find links to some fantastic books explaining the history of the Freemasonic movement and why the Masons and the Church are eternal enemies.
From Father Boyle:
Despite the fact that in the new Code of Canon Law no mention is made of the excommunication formerly applied to Catholic members of Masonic groups, the Church still prohibits membership of this secretive and anti-Catholic organization whose principles are totally incompatible with the revealed Truths of the Catholic Faith. Eight popes have issued a serious condemnation of its tenets and practices beginning with Clement XII in 1738. His constitution was confirmed and renewed by Benedict XIV.
The same path was closely followed by Pius VII, and Leo XII assumed and ratified all the acts of his predecessors on this matter. It was in the same unambiguous sense that Pius VIII, Gregory XVI and Pius IX declared their opposition. The most interesting encyclical letter is that of Leo XIII.
In the 1970’s a spurious distinction not founded on facts was introduced—a not anti-Catholic Masonic lodge—a contradiction in terms no doubt but widely touted among bishops and priests.
In 1980, the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith called this a false perspective and upheld the centuries old condemnation.
The declaration states:
…the Church’s negative position on Masonic associations …remains unchanged since their principles have always been regarded as irreconcilable with the Church’s doctrine. Hence joining them remains prohibited by the Church. Catholics enrolled in Masonic associations
Several friends have posted pictures of their cats today and it reminded me of a funny anecdote. I have a cat at my office. She is very regal and pompous. She also kills whatever critters are about, which is nice because that’s why I adopted her.
Occasionally, my Wife is kind enough to stop by and clean the office. While She is sweeping or vacuuming, my cat, whose name is Catarina, (or just ‘Cat’ for short) , will find the highest perch she can and then stare down on my Wife, often without moving for several moments. The Wife says that it makes Her feel like a servant to have someone watching over Her every move like this.… Read the rest
