A Good Article

"In a world where baby body parts are bought and sold and marriage has been redefined, it is urgent that we reaffirm that there are certain broad, moral truths that we can’t not know. It needs to be said and proclaimed. We all know that one should not murder. We all know that one should not steal or lie. These are all written on the human heart to the point that they cannot be blotted out. In other words, there are no excuses for not knowing. Many people may live in denial of these truths, but they nevertheless perceive the objects of their denial..."

A Weeked In Feminine Dress: 33 Weeks

Welcome to A Weekend In Feminine Dress!  This is when I post pictures of myself or a volunteer wearing a modest outfit to encourage women to take up the rewarding apostolate of feminine dress!  If you want to submit your pictures, please contact me at: thecatholiclady@gmail.com.


Well, I am back after a bit of a break!  It was not intended, I just have not been getting around to pictures lately.  I really need to get some new maternity clothes, but it's so hard to find time for shopping, especially considering the time it would take to locate the small selection of modest clothing in various stores.  I may need to do some sewing instead.  Oh and I also have new glasses after Rebecca threw my old ones one too many times!  So I can finally see again.  In any case, here is what I wore yesterday to Mass and a lovely day at home:

A Good Article: The Great Gift of Reading Aloud

"To curl up with children and a good book has long been one of the great civilizing practices of domestic life, an almost magical entry point to the larger world of literature.
The first time I read aloud to one of my children, the experience ended in tears. It was a sweltering July afternoon 21 years ago, and my husband and I had, incredibly, just been permitted to leave a Tokyo hospital with our firstborn, a daughter.
Immediately upon entering our apartment, feeling foggy about all but one thing, I carried the infant to the little room we had prepared for her, sat down in the rocking chair that I had painted before her arrival, and began to read aloud from a book of fairy tales..."

Shock and Reaction

 
GUEST POST BY THOMAS ZIMMERMAN

On the 19th of August in the year of Our Lord 1071 A.D., a terrible blow was dealt to Christendom at the battle of Manzikert, with the general rout of the Byzantine army at the hands of the infidel Turk.  The resulting Islamic invasion ravaged the extent of the Byzantine Empire and would have overrun Europe itself had it not been for a special grace, the grace of shock and reaction.

The shock was the realization by Western man that a great hole had been breached in the ramparts of Christian civilization and that a pagan and barbaric host now plundered the Christian people and holy places surrounding Jerusalem.  The reaction was a tremendous and organic movement of nobles, knights and arms which against all odds recaptured much of the Eastern Roman Empire and set Islamic conquest back for generations. 

On the 26th of June in the year of Our Lord 2015 A.D. another grave blow befell Christian civilization at the hands of the Supreme Court of the United States with the decision to legalize same-sex “marriage”.  The resulting ravages of this unprincipled ruling have the potential to annihilate the very foundation of Christian civilization, that of the family.  With so great a treasure at stake every Catholic, Christian, and indeed every person who has a mustard seed of a care for the institution of the family as God has established it, should be shocked.

Shocked by the grave affront that sodomite “marriage” is before God the omnipotent Creator of the Universe, Author of all life and Founder of matrimony; shocked by the blasphemy of placing unnatural vice on the same level as that of chaste wedlock between a husband and wife, raised to the dignity of a sacrament by Our Lord Himself at Cana; shocked by the scandal now offered to society and especially to children about which Our Lord said it would be better to be drowned in the sea than to scandalize.  Indeed, we should be sorely shocked.

But shock is not enough, nor should it paralyze us to silence or acceptance.  It should be the catalyst which propels us forward into the fray.  Shock requires a reaction; and that reaction must be ordered.  When the first fervor of Crusading zeal swept Christian lands, certain unprepared, ill-advised and selfish individuals led crowds of aimless peasants to sure death and no achievement for lack of wisdom.  It was only when an organized force of knights led by wise nobles embarked, that the Crusaders recaptured the Sepulchre of Jerusalem.  So today when we stand for God’s marriage, always peacefully and legally, we must stand with order.

As the lies of the homosexual agenda are challenged and destroyed on the battlefield of ideas, in their place should be built a magnanimous Christian civilization.  To this end, a guidebook, a pathway, armor and arms have been lain out for us to take up and challenge the foes of Truth.  Return to Order From A Frenzied Economy To An Organic Christian Civilization” by John Horvat provides just such a guidebook in the dark nights ahead for our nation and world.  It uncovers the deceitful source of homosexual marriage: the lie of equality.  It teaches the unifying elements of the 'Spirit of the Family' and the role of the State in society.   

A ‘Crusade for Marriage is required, an entrenched and sustained Crusade.  The holy martyrs and crusaders of old call out for it; confused souls young and old are desperate for it; our conscience demands it … and God wills it!
