Fr. Todd Reitmeyer, (Diocese of Sioux Falls ) (Blogspot): "A Son becomes a Father" died yesterday in a jet ski accident in Texas....Keep him, his family & friends in your prayers.

"One person was killed Wednesday in a personal watercraft accident on Lake Travis.One person was killed, another was taken to the hospital after the collision.It happened near Emerald Point at around 1 p.m.A man in his 30's was killed. The driver of the other jet ski, who is also in his 30's, was taken to Brackenridge Hospital with minor injuries.Officers say the two men were operating rented jet skis when they collided."The reporting parties at first said the person was actually in the water and that the jet ski hit him. Whenever we got here, we started to get a little more information and it looks like there were two jet skis actually collided," said Corey Ricketson, Austin/Travis County EMS. It's still unclear whether the man drowned or died due from the trauma of the collision."

Interview w/ Bishop Bruskewitz on defying National Review Board
"Q. On March 30, Mrs. Ewers, who heads the USCCB’s National Review Board, urged your brother bishops to give you some fraternal correction. Do you feel adequately corrected?
A. Sometimes you have to react. If I’m attacked, they are going to get a mouthful of porcupine quills. And it wasn’t just me. They attacked my diocese . . . the people who serve on that board. Some Board members support abortion very strongly, such as Leon Panetta. Paul McHugh, a Kinseyite from Johns Hopkins University, has supported human cloning. This is publicized in some of the USCCB’s own publications like Origins. MORE HERE

Spanish Dominican Fr. Angel Aparicio on "Judas" TV program
Guidelines for canonicity:
"They included apostolicity or paternity from the apostles; that the books should be promoted by the big churches and big communities; they should be universally accepted, and they should be consistent with doctrine."

PADRE POINT: Judas is perfect for our 'modern' day...no personal reponsibility, no sin, no free will, all go to Heaven regardless of actions. Man of the Year.

Interesting & Disturbing Story:
Priest 'resigns' after speaking out against homosexuality in priesthood

"...Perhaps the most hurtful moment for Nesbella since he was ordained in 2002 came the following year, when he was one of three Altoona-Johnstown priests to receive hate mail from a self-described “priests federation” that demanded an end to “harassment of homosexual clergy.”
“So after I’m ordained, I get this hate mail saying other priests are pro-gay and they don’t want men like me who are traditional,” Nesbella said.

Bishop Bruskewitz's response to criticism from the US bishops' National Review Board about his refusal to cooperate with the Board's "audit" of diocesan plans for implementing national guidelines on sex-abuse programs.

Bishop Bruskewitz released this statement on March 31:
Some woman named Patricia O'Donnell Ewers, who is the Chair of something called "A National Review Board for the Protection of Children and Young People", has said that her Board "calls for strong fraternal correction of the Diocese of Lincoln." The Diocese of Lincoln has nothing to be corrected for, since the Diocese of Lincoln is and has always been in full compliance with all laws of the Catholic Church and with all civil laws. Furthermore, Ewers and her Board have no authority in the Catholic Church and the Diocese of Lincoln does not recognize them as having any significance.
It is well known that some of the members of Ewers' Board are ardent advocates of partial birth abortion, other abortions, human cloning, and other moral errors. It is understandable then how such persons could dislike the Diocese of Lincoln, which upholds the moral teaching of the Catholic Church.

The words attributed to Ewers seem to confirm the suspicion that the members of her Board are unfamiliar with Catholic teachings, Catholic ecclesiology, and even the basic rudiments of the Catholic Catechism. Rather than concerning themselves with the Diocese of Lincoln about which they appear completely ignorant, Ewers and her colleagues would occupy themselves in a better way by learning something about the Catholic religion and the traditions and doctrines and laws of the Catholic Church. The Diocese of Lincoln does not see any reason for the existence of Ewers and her organization. SOURCE

PADRE POINT: GOOD FOR BISHOP BRUSKEWITZ...about time someone revealed the hypocrisy of that board! Most are pro abortion, yet they claim to be for the protection of children?

God or the girl? New TV reality show to air April 16th on A & E
"'God or the Girl' follows 28-year-old Joe Adair of Cleveland, Ohio; 21-year-old Dan DeMatte of Columbus, Ohio; 25-year-old Steve Horvath of Lincoln, Neb.; and 24-year-old Mike Lechniak of Scranton, Pa., through the process of trying to figure out whether God is calling them to become priests. All grapple with the sacrifices they'd have to make should they enter the priesthood, including the vow of celibacy the church requires priests to take. And all of them do unusual things, often at the suggestion of their spiritual mentors, that they hope will guide them toward the right path." FULL ARTICLE

Pope Benedict reminds 15 new Cardinals of color red
"May the scarlet that you now wear always express the 'caritas Christi,' inspiring you to a passionate love for Christ, for His Church and for all humanity. You now have an additional motive to seek to rekindle in yourselves those same sentiments that led the incarnate Son of God to pour out His blood in atonement for the sins of the whole world..."
