The archbishop, whose powerful voice helped slay apartheid in South Africa, and earned a Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 is dead at 90.

The South African anti-apartheid campaigner, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, and Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu was one of the world’s most revered religious leaders, died in Cape Town. This loss will be felt all over the world. A peacebuilder and a humble person; a joyful sense of humor and one who experienced and helped his nation confront a serious problem.

The Whole TRUTH

On earth, we worship in various ways and many faiths. From tribal beliefs to organized religions. Science proves to be our best option.

Alternative facts are not truths in the eyes of our judicial system. In court, we swear a solemn oath: to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. This shall and will be done.

Happy Hanukkah... Please enjoy The Festival of Lights that has already officially begun as we observe lighting the menorah.  

This Jewish holiday celebrates the Maccabean revolt against the Syrian-Greek army. The lighting of the menorah is perhaps the most well-known tradition. It is usually placed in a window or a doorway.

I want to share a very personal moment with all and have decided that the best practice is to say that  I must confess in public.

Therefore from now on and evermore, I will look in the mirror before correcting others’ mistakes. The wise words for his flock from The Holy Father.

It is the most wonderful time of the year, and as Christmas comes near which to me is dear, I'm offering this here if you want to hear.

It’s already beginning to look a little like Christmas, nearly everywhere you go. As Thanksgiving draws near in a few short weeks, many cities and towns are already getting the jump on their Christmas holiday programs, particularly to give potential participants notice to join in the joyous festivities.

Prelate Counterpoint

Catholic prelates are at odds over whether any politician who supports abortion rights should be allowed to receive Holy Communion.

A prelate is a high-ranking member of the clergy who is ordinary or who ranks in precedence with ordinaries. The word derives from the Latin prelates, the past participle of preferred, which means 'carry before', 'be set above or over' or 'prefer'; hence, a prelate is one set over others.
