Note: I have shared these rules on a private basis with more than one married man. I have gotten sufficient positive feedback about them that now I would like to go public with them. If you think that these rules are meant "just for fun", you are, obviously, a boy of little brain, but we hope you will grow wise as you grow old.
#1 - Whenever there is a dispute or a difference of opinion
between a husband and a wife, the wife is right and the husband
- needless to say - is wrong.
Married men of StJosPar and StFdSPar: Please memorize
these rules! There will be a pop quiz.
On the next three pages of this bulletin, you will find two prayers:
On pages 7 and 8
On page 9
I strongly encourage everyone - most
especially men and boys - to become familiar with these prayers.
CLAIMING the FULL VICTORY
that my Lord Jesus Christ
won on the Cross for me.
I renounce all of the workings
of Satan in my life,
in all of its sundry forms,
whether those workings
were initiated in me
by my own sinful decisions
or by the carelessness and neglect
of my parents or guardians,
or by someone who took
improper advantage of me
when I was a child.
I reclaim whatever territory
I have ever surrendered to the Evil One,
due either to my own cowardice
or to the treachery of false friends.
I break all attachments I have
to Satan and to his demons.
all his curses and spells.
Strengthened by the intercession
of the Immaculate Virgin Mary,
Mother of God,
of Blessed Michael the Archangel,
of the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul,
and of all the Angels and Saints of Heaven,
I beg You, LORD FATHER,
to command Satan
and all his foul minions,
whoever they may be,
to depart from me,
to cease and desist
from troubling me.
I beg You, LORD JESUS,
to expel the evil powers
that tempt me to offend
Your Divine Majesty
and to sully Your Image within me.
Consign them to hell,
there to await their final humiliation.
I beg You, LORD HOLY SPIRIT,
to take possession of me,
soul and body,
and to guard me
as Your own territory and possession.
BEFORE LOGGING ONTO
[Note: St. Isidore of Seville, bishop and doctor of the Church,
has been named by the Holy Father as Patron Saint of the Internet.]
Who created us in Thine Own Image
and bade us to seek after all
that is good, true and beautiful,
especially in the Second Divine Person,
Thine only-begotten Son,
our Lord Jesus Christ,
grant, we beseech Thee,
through the intercession of
Saint Isidore of Seville,
bishop and doctor,
that, during our journeys through the Internet,
we will direct our hands and eyes
only to that which is pleasing to Thee,
and will treat with charity and patience
all those persons whom we encounter.
Through Christ our Lord.
JOHNNIE HAYES YANNI,
Beste God, waar is de sneeuw?
Cher Dieu, où est la neige?
Lieber Gott, wo ist der Schnee?
Caro Dio, dove è la neve?
Caro Deus, onde é a neve?
¿Dios querido, donde es la nieve?
Care Deus, ubi est nix?

FOLLOW-UP TO LETTER TO CONGRESSMAN
If you recall, in last weekend's bulletin, I printed a letter that I had written to Tim Holden in which I (a) thanked him for his record of pro-life votes; (b) expressed some concern that he had made some statement in public that he was "conflicted" on the subject of embryonic stem cell research (ESCR); (c) invited him to speak with me and / or with others who could spell out for him the moral evil of ESCR; (d) asked him to vote against federal funding of ESCR.
I received a courteous - but totally unacceptable - reply from Congressman Holden. Unfortunately, on 11 Jan, Tim voted for HR 3, which funds research on human embryos from in-vitro fertilization clinics! The bill passed 253 to 174!
At this point, I want to refrain from saying anything that I might regret saying. Let me put it this way: Right now, I am a very unhappy constituent. We have all been pelosied! Tim said that he would call me next week to set up a meeting. We shall see what happens.

SOMEONE SENT ME THIS. IT SOUNDS PRETTY GOOD. ANYONE WANT TO CHECK IT OUT? [EBC]
About 2 years ago my wife and I were on a cruise through
the western Mediterranean aboard a Princess liner. At dinner
we noticed an elderly lady sitting alone along the rail of the
grand stairway in the main dining room. I also noticed that all
the staff, ships officers, waiters, busboys, etc., all seemed
very familiar with this lady. I asked our waiter who the lady
was, expecting to be told that she owned the line, but he said
he only knew that she had been on board for the last four cruises,
back to back.
1. Gratuities which will only be $10 per day.
Now hold on for the best! Do you want to see South America,
the Panama Canal, Tahiti, Australia, New Zealand, Asia? Name
where you want to go! Princess will have a ship ready to go.
Try that in a nursing home!
