LET'S PLAY: TRUE or FALSE
Are you ready? Okay! Here we go.
Is the following statement TRUE or FALSE?

In his most recent general audience, which was held on Wednesday, 27 June 2007, Pope Benedict encouraged a group of experts who were in attendance to continue their experiments with stem cells in order to develop and improve therapies for persons who suffer heart disease.

I think you will agree that the vast majority of persons would say: FALSE. This is because the vast majority of persons don't really pay attention to what they hear and read. Either that or else they read and / or listen to persons who don't know what they are talking (writing) about. The statement printed above is TRUE! And it should really be no surprise that it is TRUE.

The Pope told the scientists and physicians who attended the audience that he [meaning the Catholic Church] approved their objective of developing therapies with adult stem cells, since in this case "the dignity of the human person is respected," given that human embryos are neither eliminated nor made the subjects of experimentation.

He said: "In this sense, the position of the Church, supported by reason and science, is clear: Scientific investigation should be justly encouraged and promoted, on the condition that it is not in detriment to other human beings."

DENNIS CARDINAL DOUGHERTY, former Archbishop of Philadelphia, declined to comment on the news that the Philadelphia City Council reversed its decision to declare Philadelphia a "pro-choice city".
One reason His Eminence declined to comment was that he has been dead since 1951 and [as he explained to me] considers it inappropriate, in view of his current status, to make too many public comments. "I'll leave that to Justin" he told me.
I'm fairly certain he muttered something about "those blithering idiots" when I told him the latest developments, but I'm sure that was meant to be "off the record", so I won't quote him on that.
For those who are just now catching up on the news, here is a summary:
On 7 June, the Philadelphia City Council, by a vote of 9 to 8, passed a resolution declaring that Philadelphia is a "pro-choice city".
On 15 June, the same Philadelphia City Council, responding to the dreadful prospect of going down in flames in the next election, decided, by a vote of 13 to 4, to rescind that monumentally stupid and wicked resolution.
In a brief statement, Justin Cardinal Rigali, Archbishop of Philadelphia, said: "I appreciate that Council has considered seriously the sensitivities of all Philadelphians and has rightly voted to take these sensitivities into account," he said.
Some wonder why the Cardinal spoke about "sensitivities" because "sensitivities" does not seem to be the issue here.
If the Philadelphia City Council had declared Philadelphia to be a "pro-life city", it would have offended a good many "sensitivities", but the Cardinal would certainly not have criticized the Council for such a resolution.
The reason the Council's "pro-choice" resolution was unacceptable was not that it offended "sensitivities". It was unacceptable because it was
WICKED in its SUBSTANCE.

P.S. - Councilman Brian O'Neill (with a name like that, he has to be a pape!) offered a compromise: That the Council declare Philadelphia to be BOTH a "pro-choice city" AND a "pro-life city". I think Mr. O'Neill has a brilliant future in politics!

Dear Cousins Ralph and Kathy,

You gave your son, Christopher, to God and Country, and Rosemary and I
want to thank you both for your sacrifice and for allowing us to share
in your tears of joy.

God chose Christopher and Christopher said "yes," and it is a blessing
for all the Butera's and to everyone Chris will have contact with as a
priest. I have always been proud to be a Butera, but now even more so.

************************************************************************************


This weekend was one of the most wonderful and holy weekends of our
life. Everything was planned and executed perfectly. Saturday and
Sunday we were given a glimpse of Heaven. Both the ordination Mass and
Christopher's first Mass of Thanksgiving were offered with such
holiness, sacredness and according to all Vatican directives. The
Masses were offered without any additions or deletions. It was a joy
to see so many obedient priests. And both rec
eptions were delightful and delicious.

We were so pleased to have been allowed to kneel before our God in Holy
Communion. Since my First Holy Communion I have always knelt before
my God in Holy Communion. I didn't kneel at the ordination Mass and I
didn't plan to kneel for his First Mass, because I didn't want to call
attention to myself...it was Christopher's day not mine. So when we
were all allowed to kneel...my prayer was answered.

[************************************************************************************

Ciao,
Cousins Pasquale and Rosemary.

YOU KNOW YOU BELONG TO A REDNECK PARISH IF:
The finance committee refuses to provide funds for the purchase of a chandelier because none of the members knows how to play one.
People ask, when they learn that Jesus fed the 5000, whether the two fish were bass or catfish, and what bait was used to catch 'em.
When the pastor says, "Bubba, would you please take up the collection?" five guys and two women stand up.
The opening day of deer season is recognized as an official church holiday.
A member of the church requests to be buried in his 4-wheel-drive truck because "It ain't never been in a hole it couldn't get out of."
The choir is known as the "OK Chorale".
In a congregation of 500 members, there are only seven last names in the church directory.
Baptism is referred to as "branding".
The high notes on the organ set the dogs on the floor to howling.
People think "rapture" is what you get when you lift something too heavy.
The baptismal pool is a #2 galvanized washtub.
The choir robes were donated by (and embroidered with the logo from) Billy Bob's Barbecue.
The collection baskets are really hub caps from a '56 Chevy.
Instead of a bell, you are called to service by a duck call.
The pastor drives a pickup truck.
The communion wine is Boone's Farm "Tickled Pink".
The tenth commandment - "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's goods" - is understood to apply mostly to hunting dogs.
The final words at the end of Mass are "Y'all come back now!! Ya Hear!"

Life Line Screening

Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States for men and the second leading cause of death for women. It is also the number one reason people are admitted to nursing homes. What most people do not realize is that most strokes - up to 75% - can be prevented.

SAINT JOSEPH PARISH will be hosting a Life Line Screening for the community in the Parish Hall on Friday, 3 August 2007. Life Line Screening will perform four different health screenings using Doppler color flow ultrasound.

Carotid Artery Stroke Screening: Visualizes fatty plaque buildup and measures the velocity of blood flow to the brain.
$45.00
Nearly 85% of strokes could have been prevented through such screenings.

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening: Detects an enlargement or weak area in the main blood vessel that carries blood from the heart to the rest of the body.
$45.00
This is what Conway Twitty and Lucille Ball died from.

Peripheral Arterial Disease Screening: Checks for peripheral arterial disease (PAD), which is a condition in which the arteries that carry blood to the arms or legs become narrowed or clogged, slowing or stopping the flow of blood. PAD is closely linked to coronary artery disease. By identifying individuals with PAD, treatment can also help prevent heart attack and stroke.
$45.00
This is the #1 cause of diabetic amputation.

Osteoporosis Screening: Performed with a quantitative ultrasound bone densitometer, using the heel as a measurement site. This test estimates future fracture risk by comparing the participant's bone density to reference values recommended by World Health Organization guidelines.
$35.00

Complete wellness package of all four tests: $129.00
Vascular package:         $119.00

Next weekend (7 / 8 July), a rep from Life Line Screening (Aileen) will be available in the baptistery after each of the three Masses. If you register then for one or more of these tests, you will receive a credit of ten dollars ($10.00) towards the cost.
