"The face of God is that of a merciful father, who is always patient... He does not tire of forgiving us if we know how to turn to him with a contrite heart... The Lord never tires of forgiving. We are the ones who tire of asking for forgiveness." (Angelus, March 17, 2013)
Why Whitney Houston Died - according to Bill O'Reilly
A parishioner commented before the evening Mass today that she was watching Houston's funeral and it was "awful". I guess that it was probably all that a Catholic funeral would not have been. And we have had three funerals in as many days so our parishioners should know a thing or two about Catholic funerals.
I think we need to be warning our youth about the dangers of the celebrity lifestyle. Yes, pray for her soul, but certainly not hold her up as any kind of example.
In our local Mining Journal, I found that this column by Bill O'Reilly seemed to sum it up for me.
