Ever seen the Coexist bumper sticker.
Here’s our Christian reply.
HT: Totus Tuus
The Bible is full of truth and tradition. This video brings together the Old and New Testament readings to show how a devotion to Mary, Queen of Heaven and Earth, is not just a Catholic thing. That there is truly scriptual evidence that Mary is to be loved deeply by all, and she has many graces to offer us.
A side thought I've always had for non-catholics. All religious believe that "Nothing is impossible with God." Right? Than why do so many religions limit God to the writings of one book? God is so much more than that. Read all the other things Matthew, Mark, Luke and John wrote. There are books written by our Church Fathers, that get deeper on all matters of faith. The Bible contains just a few. Realize that there is more to faith than just believing. Faith is much better shared and lived, and our Church Fathers wrote so much to help us know what Jesus asked us to do.
Is your faith conformed to a Sunday visit to a place of worship - or is your life lived for God all the days after? He asks us to make each day a prayer. To offer up our trials as a prayer to save souls here and in the hereafter. For Catholics, the Eucharist (the True Body and Blood of Christ Jesus), is recieved daily at Mass - and by the millions every Sunday. Let that be your moment of recieving God's Grace to energize you to LIVE your faith out the rest of the week. If you have tried to feel full of joy, but still feel something is missing - it may be you're missing out on the best thing Jesus left us... The Sacraments! Only found in the Catholic Church.
God sends us grace through the 7 Sacraments. God sends more Graces to Mary who then disperses them to all of us at her own will. Mary Mediatrix of All Graces. Lets just say if she's handing them out, I'd like to be in line for that. While I recieve the Sacraments regularily, it doesn't hurt to ask for more graces from Mary. That is why Catholics chose to pray to Mary, whether it be a traditional rosary or an impromptu prayer from the heart. Both which I strongly recommend.
To get you started...
Hail Mary, Full of Grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women,
and blessed it the fruit of thy womb Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.
These pictures forwarded to me tell the true story that the mainstream media refuses to show.
Do I agree with these "Tea Partiers?" Oh yes, I most certainly do.
Even though I may not march with them, I will definitely stand by them, and vote with them.

I think this gathering should be appreciated as the extremely important historical event that it is. This is the first great conservative anti-statist manifestation in American history. The conservative movement, which developed in the post-WWII, Cold War environment has now fully matured into the most significant political movement of the 21st century. I believe that this day could be referred to in the not too distant future as the day that changed America . This was the day the great silent conservative majority finally found its voice.
Many of the attendees were quite meek and timid and were unsure of exactly what to expect, this being the first time in their lives they'd been involved in a protest movement. Their fears evaporated early in the day and I saw people reveling in the camaraderie , the joy and sheer civility that was exhibited at the entire event. Chants of "Freedom, freedom, freedom" "No more czars! No more czars!" carried through the air without the slightest hint of rancor or incivility which is the norm at the leftist rallies I have photographed over the years.
The two photos above show a tiny fraction of the two million ABC estimates attended. I saw signs and heard lots of comments comparing this event to Woodstock . At the time this photo was taken, around 1:00 p.m., Pennsylvania Avenue was still jammed completely, and the mall was packed from the Capitol Building past the Washington Monument . See aerial photos here.
Protesters came from every state in the union. This man came from San Antonio , TX . He said that he was really sorry he hadn't brought his family. He stated that being a black conservative he was afraid to expose his children to what he expected would be a lot of liberal abuse. He was thrilled with the tenor of the event and the fact that no liberals were present to harass him. He spoke about how incredibly intolerant the left is to black individuals who don't bow to the party line.
These Ohioans took a day off their rodeo bullriding schedule. They said they'll be back at it tomorrow.
Mike Pence (R-Indiana) was one of the speakers who addressed the crowd: "After years of fighting runaway government on this hill, you people look like the cavalry to me.. I believe we are on the verge of a great American awakening."
San Diego radio host Mason Weaver said from the podium: “I came here because I thought you might want to hear a black man speak without a teleprompter…This government is trying to make a nation of dependent people. Americans have always been independent people…This is not a Republican thing, it's not a Democrat thing. It's not a black thing or a white thing. It's an American thing…We the people are telling them "No more! We've had enough!"
In the very center of the photo, above the Silence is Consent – Can You Hear Us Now sign, you can see Pennsylvania Ave., which at this time is totally blocked with protesters who cannot move forward to the Capitol area. Sorry, full up.
There were notable differences though, in the behavior of these attendees. Although the legend of Woodstock is that there was a friendly atmosphere of camaraderie, the truth is that most people were there for the drugs, sex and rock and roll. Today in D.C. There was a true kinship amongst these people based on shared values and intellectual understanding of what America is and how its future is imperiled by big radical government.
No one was having sex in the Reflecting Pool let alone the mud, and I saw no one projectile vomiting on the steps of the Capitol. There were no warnings to avoid the bad acid which would send you on a trip to the hospital. Not just a different era, but a different level of civilized behavior and thought. Oh, and by the way, these people didn't leave tons of garbage behind when they left. Actually they left no trash behind at all.

Nancy Pelosi has accused patriotic tea-partyers of "carrying swastikas" implying that they are Nazi sympathizers. This event was wall to wall hammers and sickles and words like "socialist" "communist" and "Marxist" etc. It continues to fascinate me how long the Democrats will tolerate this without ever commenting on it. Either they like it, or there's something to it.
Ever present at Tea Parties are Sons of Liberty reenactors. The couple on the left is from Tennessee and the young lady on the right is not but she joined in the photo. The clothing for the couple was hand stitched by the lady on the left. And boy do they love America .”
God Bless America !!

Just search Google Images “Tea Party” and your state name, and you’d be amazed how many of your neighbors are speaking up.
I found this to be a beautiful Novena. Click the image below to print it out for yourself if you’d like. This prayer was shared with me by www.HolyHeroes.com in their latest Easter Adventure email. I just added the images to pretty it up.
A large crowd of people followed Jesus, including many women who mourned and lamented Him. Jesus turned to them and said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for Me; weep instead for yourselves and for your children, for indeed, the days are coming when people will say, ‘Blessed are the barren, the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed.’ “ (Luke 23:27-29)
Tonight I watched an incredible movie. It’s up there with Fireproof, The Guardian, Pay It Forward, and other inspiring movies. It’s The Ultimate Gift. I’d give it the full 5 Star rating if not higher.
I urge you to watch it with your whole family, and when you’re done – visit www.TheUltimateGift.com for information on how you can share The Ultimate Gift with those you love.
It’s worth every minute of your time. I promise.
This is a perfect movie for our times, when many people are more concerned with their finances than with their family. When teens and young adults are discovering that the life they know could be taken a way in a moment – when there parents lose a job, when someone they love dies, when their best friend commits suicide, when they have to chose between rent and food. Hopefully for many, this movie will put life back into perspective. Perhaps it will put a desire to live back in their hearts. Or just maybe it will inspire someone to dream bigger. I hope that for many. I hope that for you.
Watch this movie, then let me know in a comment how you want to share The Ultimate Gift with others.
While I did not vote for any Democrat, since I am a Conservative voter... I do agree with this powerful, well-created video.
