So sexy it hurts.
And I’m too sexy for Ukraine, too sexy for Ukraine
Moscow and Peking
And I’m too sexy for your party
Too sexy for your party
No way I’m disco dancing
I’m a model, you know what I mean….
Oh yeah…we know too well, Clyde.
There is a temptation among Human Beings, despite all of the evidence to the contrary, to believe that those who oppose us, even everything we stand for, have a redeeming quality or two.

The movie “Son of God” is presently playing in theaters. This looks to be a good, wholesome movie. Catholic News Service (CNS) has posted a review of “Son of God”. Due to prevalent gory violence in the film CNS recommends that only adults view the movie. It is rated PG-13. This is the first movie to cover the entire life of Jesus since the 1977 miniseries “Jesus of Nazareth.”
Here is part of the review by CNS:
The screenwriters, led by Nic Young, find an efficient entree into their narrative by entrusting it to an aged St. John the Evangelist (Sebastian Knapp) during his exile on the island of Patmos. This is theologically helpful because the opening lines of the Beloved Disciple’s Gospel, as recited here, describe the Incarnation, a mystery without which all that follows could easily be misconstrued.
Thus Judas (Joe Wredden), Caiaphas the high priest (Adrian Schiller) and Pontius Pilate (Greg Hicks) are all assigned believable motives, while Morgado succeeds in blending messianic vision with very human pain in a thoroughly compelling way — one that accords, moreover, with the scriptural account.
Catholic viewers will also appreciate the unqualified acknowledgement of St. Peter (Darwin Shaw) as the leader of the Apostles as well as scenes highlighting Mary’s (Roma Downey) closeness to her son. And, though the portrayal of the Last Supper seems somewhat noncommittal as to the meaning of the Eucharist, a rough-and-ready celebration of the sacrament is shown to be the chosen moment for the Lord’s first post-Resurrection appearance to the Twelve.
“Son of God” expounds on last year’s miniseries “The Bible.” Are you Looking forward to seeing the movie? Yes. I’m not sure whether I’m going to see the “Son of God” in the theater or wait til it comes to Red Box.

Archbishop Chaput of Philadelphia said, “Catholics have a duty to respect legitimate authority and pray for our political leaders, whether we personally care for them or not. The Church seeks to cooperate with public officials because we’re a community of citizens as well as believers. “But there are limits, and the more that government mandates evil actions, the more likely civil disobedience becomes.”
I would go a bit further than the Archbishop did. I believe it is our duty to follow our faith. When civil law or mandates conflict with our faith such as in the case of the HHS mandate we have a duty, a moral obligation, to follow our Faith. The HHS mandate propagates evil. As followers of God we are called to combat evil and never cooperate with or advocate evil. Killing innocent vulnerable life is probably the worst evil (that I can think of).
President Obama talked about religious freedom at the prayer breakfast but yet has his administration go after and try to force The Little Sisters of the Poor to violate their religion, violate their faith. Archbishop Chaput said, “I think President Obama’s recent prayer breakfast comments about religious freedom were interesting but also curious, because in practice, the people who staff his administration have been the most tone deaf to religious liberty issues in recent memory. There’s a very odd disconnect in praising religious freedom while the Justice Department goes after the Little Sisters of the Poor.
“So yes, religious freedom is one of our core national ideals, and yes, it’s at risk from two sources: an unfriendly political class, and our own distracted attention and indifference.”
In my opinion the disconnect is alarming. His actions and the actions of his administration do not comport with his words at the prayer breakfast. Unless his words are an act and is deceiving people. Kind of like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hide.
Let us continue to pray for the conversion of souls. God Bless.

Praying every day helps keep the devil away. Praying every day brings you closer to God.
In the book Song of the Sparrow:
I write this sentence only because I promised myself I’d try to write at least one sentence every day, and because one sentence leads to another. If only we could pray a little every day, even when it is only one word, for prayers like sentences leads into thoughts and eventually the heart hears and is lifted beyond the words to him who transcends all thought and every word.
When you recognize the festive and the still moments as moments of prayer, then you gradually realize that to pray is to live.
Be true to yourself, help others, make each day your masterpiece, make friendship a fine art, drink deeply from good books – especially the Bible, build a shelter against a rainy day, give thanks for your blessings and pray for guidance every day.
