“You are bringing humankind closer to Me”
Jesus gave the Chaplet Of Divine Mercy, through Saint Maria Faustina, to “the whole world” as a prayer for obtaining God’s mercy. We hope that no Christian will dismiss this powerful spiritual resource simply because of the Chaplet’s Catholic origin.
As our country and the whole world continue to become enveloped in the moral evils that have always filled the void whenever Christianity is suppressed or marginalized, it is incumbent upon all Christians who make up the Body Of Christ to pray for America and the world to turn back to God.
Entry 929 of The Diary Of Saint Faustina records Jesus’ words on the power of the chaplet to do just that – My daughter, those words of your heart are pleasing to Me, and by saying the chaplet you are bringing humankind closer to Me
The Chaplet can be offered for a general intention such as mercy for all sinners dying during that hour and to implore Jesus’ mercy for our personal intentions.

Pray the Chaplet Of Divine Mercy, or pray as you feel, but pray
On May 18 we began our series on Turning America To Jesus’ Divine Mercy noting that America is hurting like no time since the Great Depression and that America is vulnerable as never before.
Things have gone downhill from there. The nation’s misery continues to mount, but, as a nation, we are simply reaping what we have sown.
“As Anne Graham Lott, daughter of Rev Billy Graham, warned after the September 11 attacks, “Americans in a sense have shaken their fist at God and said, God, we want you out of our schools, our government, our business, we want you out of our marketplace…
We need to turn to God first of all and say, God, we’re sorry..”
Ten years later we are well on our way to becoming a neo-pagan Banana Republic ruled by a two party dictatorship. Our hope does not lay in Mitt Romney or just the Tea Party. Our hope, as the Founding Fathers acknowledged, lies in God.
The hour is ominously late and it is time for Christian America to pray as one to Our Lord Jesus Christ for forgiveness and mercy. And Jesus has given us the prayer by which we can do so.

Newt keeps the focus on Obama and nails it on the economy
The participant in last night’s debate in Iowa who seemed to best grasp this obvious concept was Newt Gingrich. Unfortunately Newt has lost a lot of credibility in the last few years.
But for all his flaws, no one has ever doubted Gingrich’s intelligence or his debating skills and Newt came across as the overall winner last night as he began to reestablish his credibility with an impressive performance.
In these two video clips we see Newt Gingrich 1) focusing on the target – President Obama – and 2) nailing it on the economy.

The right message from a man who actually cares
The Pew Research Center recently released a report highlighting increasing economic disparity between white and black Americans. Philadelphia has been plagued by a series of “flash mob” riots primarily perpetrated by young blacks.
This video except from Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter’s Sunday speech at the Carmel Baptist Church. Mayor Nutter, no Rush Limbaugh to be sure, lays the simple truth on the line for black America that lack of parental responsibility and the manner in which young blacks conduct themselves and dress are factors in lack of economic success.

The nation’s future lies in a Tea Party takeover of the GOP
The debt ceiling will be raised, President Obama has been given a blank check to spend another $2.4 trillion dollars and the paltry $1 trillion in “cuts” republicans are crowing about will be spread over ten years.
And for all those who just fell off a turnip truck, a “Super Commission” is the oldest dog and pony show in Washington.
Nothing was done to address unemployment and Obama’s blank check virtually ensures that America’s credit rating will be lowered for the first time in history.
A do nothing debt deal was a win for Barack Obama. And this is not what America envisioned when the republican party was handed a mandate on the economy in November.
