Dolan, Head of USCCB, Not sure if GOD is "HIM or her"???

I have written previously regarding Dolan's appointment and the curious glee which accompanied his appointment. Curious to ME because I previously saw him officiating at a Mass in NYC smiling and welcoming practicing GLBT community members to partake in the Body and Blood of our Lord. And NOW ... GOD HELP US ... He's on a talk show saying that Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks to GOD .... oh just watch the short video ... I can't it again!! :-(

NO WONDER he thinks all is WELL in the Catholic Church in America!!! If you aren't already praying and doing penance for the clergy, you best START!


  1. Great post! I hadn't heard that Archbishop Dolan supports the GLBT community. We need more Bishops to stand firmly for Truth and defend Truth like Pope Benedict instead of being wishy-washy and pandering to the public. Thanks for keeping me up to date and in the know. God Bless!

  2. Thanks Teresa ... well I'm not sure he would ADMIT to SUPPORTING them, but he most CERTAINLY did not exhibit any PROBLEM with them at Mass as evidenced by his cheery smile and displayed interest! And now this ... actually saying HE or she for God .... I can only shake my head and pray for more hours in the day to PRAY!

  3. I don't know anything about Bishop Dolan, but just on the subject of calling God "He" or "She", I think we have been given teachings and insight through the years on both the male and female Attributes of God, and that God is neither male nor female, but pure Spirit, and we can relate to either or both of the aspects of God's Attributes. There are so many examples, but for instance, in the Old Testament we find that God wishes to give us milk from the breast; Pope John Paul II spoke of God as Mother in the 1990s; and of course we have Julian of Norwich, in her Revelations, where Jesus as Mother is revealed in the visions. I think there are so many who need, and maybe especially at particular times in their lives, to know and understand the nurturing aspects of God, and nurturing is primarily a female gift.

  4. Do you have references for your points above? I'd like to research that please :) But as far as I know, Jesus taught us to pray and He told us to say "OUR FATHER Who art in heaven.... " :) I tend to believe that spirits in general are non gender but God has always been referred to as masculine as Jesus and the Holy Spirit ... we have Mary for our feminine influence to ask to intercede for us.
    There can be only one Truth .. one Source .. if you get away from that, then it's up for grabs on who wants to believe what at any given time. Complacency and relativism is killing the country and sending many souls down a slippery slope to perdition. Tread carefully on generalized 'spirituality'. :)

  5. Battle Beads, so sorry that I'm just reading your comment at this late date! I really would like to give you some more thorough background on what I referred to in my previous comment, but since it's too long for here I've posted it at my blog, Contemplative Haven. Rest assured, re the question of male/female, it is not generalized spirituality, but the teaching of the Catholic Church, and also revealed to us by Catholic saints and mystics.

    My impression from the video though, was that Michael was not emphasizing the male/female debate (although he did emphasize the word "him" at the end) so much as the Bishop's not directly speaking of Jesus or the Holy Trinity in the interview.

  6. I stand by what I said :)... Our Father :)

The Apostle, St. John tells us exactly how to recognize the spirit of truth from the spirit of falsehood. He says "as for them, they are of the world - and the world listens to them because they speak the language of the world. But we are children of God and those who know God: LISTEN TO US. Those who are not of God REFUSE TO LISTEN TO US. That is how we can tell the spirit of truth from the spirit of falsehood." ~1 John 4:6 [The "us" to whom St. John refers are the Apostles, and their successors the Bishops.]

Prayer to avoid the Sin of PRIDE:
“Oh My Jesus help me to avoid the sin of pride when I speak in Your Name. Forgive me if I ever belittle anyone in Your holy Name. Help me to listen Jesus when Your Voice is spoken and fill me with Your Holy Spirit so that I can discern the truth of Your Word when You call out to mankind. Amen.”

A prayer of St. Teresa of Avila:
O my God! Source of all mercy! I acknowledge Your sovereign power. While recalling the wasted years that are past, I believe that You, Lord, can in an instant turn this loss to gain. Miserable as I am, yet I firmly believe that You can do all things. Please restore to me the time lost, giving me Your grace, both now and in the future, that I may appear before You in "wedding garments." Amen.

“My children, let your speech be chosen with great care—it must be a light in the world. Know and believe that all you say has repercussions in time and eternity. Therefore, choose your words with wisdom and prudence, choosing to remain silent rather than fill the air with useless chatter or worse, gossip or virulent speech. Let your speech be a perfect mirror of your peaceful heart, a heart firmly grounded in the love of God and in complete trust in His goodness. Silence is often the more virtuous path. Bridle your tongue and you will be working for peace in the world.”

In the Name of Jesus I renounce as lies all thoughts that enter my mind from the evil one who accuses. By the authority of Jesus, I command them to leave me. I consecrate my mind to God for transformation into His Thoughts for my protection, salvation and His glory.

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

Just a Note:

Through the grace of God and many prayers, I survived a double surgery (with cancer) in the fall of 2008. Since then has becoming increasingly important to me to enhance my prayer life. I have taken on the task of praying for strangers and those with little hope and much adversity. To that end, I've also begun (July '09), to make rosaries and related items to put prayer into the hands of as many as I can that will PRAY for others.

The world is at the precipice ... we need to TAKE ACTION ... NOW. Time for fence sitting is quickly coming to an end. We all need to do what ever we can in the way of PRAYER & PENANCE to beg God's Grace upon humanity that we may shake away this sinfulness and pride to get back on the road that leads to heaven and our Glorious Triune God!

After you have made a decision that is pleasing to God, the devil may try to make you have second thoughts. Intensify your prayer time, meditation, and good deeds. For if satan's temptations merely cause you to increase your efforts to grow in holiness, he'll have an incentive to leave you alone.
~St. Ignatius of Loyola
