Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. --  Matt. 11:28-30.

The meaning of St. Patrick's Day

Dear Editor,

For most people St. Patrick's Day is a day of parades, parties, leprechauns and green beer. But just as Christmas is about more than commercialized fun, so too does St. Patrick's Day have a deeper meaning.
St. Patrick's Day began as a religious holiday honoring St. Patrick - a holy bishop sent to Ireland in 433 A.D. by Pope Celestine I to draw its people into the fold of Christ's universal church. Upon his arrival at Ireland's shores St. Patrick encountered many setbacks and persecutions by the superstitious Druids who had employed magicians to maintain their sway over the Irish race. Despite severe trials, St. Patrick was able to convert all of Ireland and conquer paganism. He is thus credited with driving the Celtic "snakes" out of Ireland.
St. Patrick is credited with many miracles and is responsible for the building of several Catholic schools, monasteries and churches throughout Ireland. He is known for his powerful expositions of the principles of the Catholic faith. He even employed the ordinary, little, three-leaved shamrock plant to teach people about the Blessed Trinity. He was called to his heavenly reward on March 17, 461.
St. Patrick was a humble, pious, gentle man, whose total love, devotion and trust in God should be a shining example to each of us.

'TAKE BACK BAHAMAS FROM CRIMINALS'

By KHRISNA VIRGIL

FOLLOWING yet another bloody weekend and with the crime rate continuing to spiral out of control, Christian Council President Rev Ranford Patterson is calling on all Bahamians to reclaim their country from the criminals.

Rev Patterson believes the nonchalant attitude of Bahamians is to blame for much of the criminality plaguing society today.

"The church doesn't mean anything, God doesn't mean anything. People are not God-conscious and we've becomematerialistic," Rev Patterson said.

He also believes the country has lost the values that long held Bahamians together.

"We've moved away from the values that we grew up with," he said. "C ...

Catholic leader right on stance regarding homosexuals

Dear Editor,

Regarding the Reuters article "Pope digs in against gay marriage push", March 10, 2012:
I commend Pope Benedict XVI for his latest condemnation of homosexuality and same-sex marriage.
If you can't procreate you must negate! This was the teaching of Jesus Christ who denounced homosexuality in claiming that "God created man male and female" (Matt. 19: 4-6). The Catholic Church in union with her founder also rejects the terms 'gay' and 'lesbian' calling them unfounded and unwarranted reductionist terms that do not describe the fullness and richness that is in every man and woman.
There is no 'gay gene' and no scientific proof that homosexuality is innate. This cannot be trumped by the mere antidotal evidence of a few who deliberately and conveniently confuse love with lust.
Marriage is an institution that predates civilization, ordained by God, and exclusive to one man and one woman who are given the responsibility to procreate the human race, and to nurture, educate, and pass on shared values and mores to their offspring. To redefine marriage to include same-sex couples is to strip marriage of an essential component, namely the ability and obligation to procreate. This would render marriage meaningless and open it up to endless revision and redefinition.

Pastor Newton encourages mothers to know their children

Jesus Christ Centered Ministries International (JCCMI) Co-pastor Jennifer Newton made a plea to mothers on Sunday to make every effort to get to know their children by developing stronger relationships with them.
Pastor Newton, who delivered the message during Sunday's Mother's Day service at the church in the Old Dad Plaza on Carmichael Road, said that it is imperative for mothers in particular, and parents in general to know who their children's friends are, which websites they are visiting online and what kinds of music they are listening to.
She also encouraged mothers to keep their children grounded in the word of God and active in church.
Newton, the wife of JCCMI Senior Pastor Bishop Sheldon Newton and a mother of two, also encouraged mothers to let their faith be reflected in their interaction with their children. She said that all too often parents live one way in the front of church members and another way in front of their children at home.
The wife and mother said that mothers should take care to build up their children with constructive words, as opposed to tearing them down with destructive ones.
She said that parents should shy away from the practice of giving children everything they want just because they want it, and suggested that children be encouraged to earn what they want through good grades at school, good manners,respect for their parents and doing chores around the home.

The U.S. election and the consequence

Dear Editor,

The Republicans did not lose the U.S. election because of constituencies or demographics. Neither is Barack Obama the problem. We are. Abortion is. Public schools are. A rotting pop culture is. Modernism in the Catholic Church is. Divorce and homosexual "marriage" are. Obama has been reelected simply because America, like any nation, will always only get the leaders she deserves. We told God to go to hell a long time ago, and God is now allowing us to see what life is like without Him.
America is a Christian nation, and our help is in the name of the Lord - not electoral politics. Out of fear and sheer desperation, most Americans threw their hats in the ring for a Mormon, big government-backing, sometimes pro-life, moderately pro-gay rights candidate. Even by John F. Kennedy's standards, Mitt Romney is a rabid liberal who would not have altered the course for America.
We need something more. Much more. Two thousand years ago a lone soldier with his metaphorical armor shining beneath the moon, galloped through the land. Where hooves thunder, the ground became alive with sprouts and tendrils, and bare trees started to bud, and grasses to blossom, the power of nature exploding into life. This soldier was able to rally the people to rediscover what is best in men. Today we need that soldier once more to inspire the masses to defend what was, and the dream of what could be once more.
