Both atheists and theists alike, on the question of God’s existence, like to portray their position as the more rational one. Atheists will say, prove it to me. You’re making extraordinary claims, therefore give me irrefutable evidence such that it would be impossible to deny. This, btw, is a standard of proof far in excess of anything science has ever had to demonstrate.
1) What do the oligarchs have in store for us now?
2) Have you noticed how certain phrases suddenly come into vogue and everyone’s using them seemingly overnight?
I’m talking about “build back better,” the latest word salad served up by the oligarchs for our consumption. And like “black lives matter,” “pro-choice,” and “hate has no home here,” build back better has been designed to be immune to any objections. I mean, do you want to build back worse? Do you want to build back at all? What’s wrong with you?
Many people have heard the story of the former Communist Party leader Bella Dodd deployed “over 1000 communist agents” into American seminaries to infiltrate the Church. But if you read Bella Dodd’s autobiography, she makes no mention of it. So who exactly was Bella Dodd and how do we know she did this?
Friends, today is Gaudete Sunday. It is a command to rejoice, for Jesus has made us rich through his entrance into poverty. We are reminded both by Pope Francis and the Gospel reading that we must reach out to those on the periphery, suffering from poverty—whether economic, political, or existential—just as Christ has done for us.
In this introductory video, you will meet the hosts, Fr. Mark Toups, Sr. Miriam James Heidland, and Fr. Josh Johnson as they share their own encounters with Mary and the effect she has had on their lives. This video will put you in the frame of mind to see Advent through Mary’s eyes as you wait with her for the birth of her son, Jesus.
Friends, Advent is when we reflect upon the arrival of our Savior who came to ransom his people. We cannot think to ourselves, “I’m basically fine, spiritually.” Rather, we must be penitent; we must remember our lonely captivity. This liturgical season is about shaping softened hearts, making them ready for our coming King.

Father Peter was raised in the large and tight-knit Jewish community of Montreal, Canada. As a young man Father Peter attend Woodstock, after dropping out of Boston University. He found his way to Berkeley and studied Zen Buddhism. A friend invited him to a Cistercian Abbey in Canada, where he was impressed by the chanting and quiet. He received the gift of faith in Jesus through the liturgy while attending a Mass. Father Peter is now a priest of the Archdiocese of Montreal.
The Great Reset is all the rage. Because we identify reset with a computer upgrade, it’s sold to us as something good. If a reset is good a great reset must be great. Right? The phrase comes from the founder and CEO of the World Economic Forum, (Schwab) Klaus Schwab. Mr. Schwab and his fellow oligarchs have been trying to gain some traction with this great reset saying for years without much traction. In fact, in a short propaganda video, the World Economic Forum predicts a world where, “You’ll own nothing, and you’ll be happy” and that everyone will rent everything they need.
