By Msgr. Charles Pope - The first reading from last Saturday’s daily Mass reminds us of the power that the Word of God can have in our lives if we listen to or read it with devotion. It also reminds us that God’s Word is like a scalpel with which to cut away evil... Indeed, the word of God is living and effective, sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating even between soul and spirit, joints and marrow, and able to discern reflections and thoughts of the heart. No creature is concealed from him, but everything is naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must render an account (Heb 4:12-13).

Billions of government research dollars will dry up. Elite scientists will lose their jobs. The renewable energy industry will lose billions in subsidies.
By Phil Lawler, Catholic Culture - What happened at the Lincoln Memorial was a classic demonstration of Alinsky tactics: a staged confrontation, an emotional appeal to the media, and then a scorched-earth campaign to demonize the opposition. For a few days it worked. And to their shame, many prominent pro-lifers succumbed to the propaganda and joined in the group-hate.
