THE BANNS OF MARRIAGE (#3) are proclaimed between WESLEY ESHLEMAN and LAURIE BRENNAN. If anyone knows any reason or circumstance that stands in the way of a valid marriage between this man and this woman, let such reason or circumstance be brought to the attention of the Pastor.
A FEENEY FUNNY: Not long ago, I was engaged in a kitchen table conversation with some friends. One of them said that she did not like my biretta. I was about to launch into a defense of the ancient and honorable custom of wearing a biretta, but the eminent Mr. Feeney saved me the trouble. He said, “Well, I’d rather meet a priest with a Biretta on his head than a Beretta in his hand.” The defense rests!

JOHN HENRY CARDINAL NEWMAN (1801 – 1890) will be beatified by Pope Benedict XVI today (19 September 2010). Blessed John was a priest of the Church of England until 1845, at which time he made the courageous decision to enter into full communion with the Catholic Church.
He was a great intellectual and an ardent lover of the Truth. He allowed the Truth to lead him into the Light, despite the personal cost.
Blessed John Henry Newman is one of the most quotable of men. Here are some samples:

It is as absurd to argue men, as to torture them, into believing.

Faith is the result of the act of the will, following upon a conviction that to believe is a duty.

Faith ... acts promptly and boldly on the occasion, on slender evidence.

To live is to change, and to be perfect is to change often.

Faith ... acts promptly and boldly on the occasion, on slender evidence.

Calculation never made a hero.

Fear not that thy life shall come to an end, but rather that it shall never have a beginning.

If we insist on being as sure as is conceivable ... we must be content to creep along the ground, and can never soar.

Faith ... acts promptly and boldly on the occasion, on slender evidence.

If we are intended for great ends, we are called to great hazards.

Courage does not consist in calculation, but in fighting against chances.

Fear not that thy life shall come to an end, but rather that it shall never have a beginning.

A man would do nothing if he waited until he could do it so well that no one could find fault.

Learn to do thy part and leave the rest to Heaven.

From the age of fifteen, dogma has been the fundamental principle of my religion: I know no other religion; I cannot enter into the idea of any other sort of religion; religion, as a mere sentiment, is to me a dream and a mockery.

“There is such a thing as legitimate warfare: war has its laws; there are things which may fairly be done, and things which may not be done.”

“After the fever of life - after wearinesses, sicknesses, fightings and despondings, languor and fretfulness, struggling and failing, struggling and succeeding - after all the changes and chances of this troubled and unhealthy state, at length comes death - at length the white throne of God - at length the beatific vision.”
****************************************************************************************************
Blessed John Henry Newman, pray for us!

The Truth About Beer and Your Belly
What really causes that potbelly, and how can you get rid of it?

by Kathleen M. Zelman, MPH, RD, LD

Have years of too many beers morphed your six-pack abs into a keg? If you have a "beer belly," you are not alone. It seems beer drinkers across the globe have a tendency to grow bellies, especially as they get older, and especially if they are men.
But is it really beer that causes a "beer belly"? Not all beer drinkers have them -- some teetotalers sport large ones. So what really causes men, and some women, to develop the infamous paunch?

What Causes a Beer Belly?
It’s not necessarily beer but too many calories that can turn your trim waistline into a belly that protrudes over your pants. Any kind of calories -- whether from alcohol, sugary beverages, or oversized portions of food -- can increase belly fat. However, alcohol does seem to have a particular association with fat in the midsection.
"In general, alcohol intake is associated with bigger waists, because when you drink alcohol, the liver burns alcohol instead of fat," says Michael Jensen, MD, an endocrine expert and obesity researcher with the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.
Beer also gets the blame because alcohol calories are so easy to overdo. A typical beer has 150 calories – and if you down several in one sitting, you can end up with serious calorie overload.
And don’t forget calories from the foods you wash down with those beers. Alcohol can increase your appetite. Further, when you're drinking beer at a bar or party, the food on hand is often fattening fare like pizza, wings, and other fried foods.

Why Does Fat Accumulate in the Belly?
When you take in more calories than you burn, the excess calories are stored as fat. Where your body stores that fat is determined in part by your age, sex, and hormones.
Boys and girls start out with similar fat storage patterns, but puberty changes that. Women have more subcutaneous fat (the kind under the skin) than men, so those extra fat calories tend to be deposited in their arms, thighs, and buttocks, as well as their bellies. Because men have less subcutaneous fat, they store more in their bellies.
Beer bellies tend to be more prominent in older people because as you get older, your calorie needs go down, you often become less active, and gaining weight gets easier.
As hormone levels decline in men and women as they age, they're more likely to store fat around the middle. Menopausal women who take hormone replacement therapy tend to have less of a shift toward more belly fat than those who do not.
Studies suggest that smokers may also deposit more fat in their bellies, Jensen says.

What’s Wrong With a Beer Belly?
Belly fat in the midsection does more than reduce your chances of winning the swimsuit competition. It's linked to a variety of health problems, from type 2 diabetes to high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease.
Carrying extra pounds in your thighs or hips is less risky than carrying them in the abdominal region. Further, subcutaneous fat that you can grab around your waist and on your thighs, hips, and buttocks is not as dangerous as the visceral fat that's found deep within the abdominal cavity surrounding your organs.
Visceral fat within the abdominal wall is frequently measured by waist circumference.
"When waist circumference exceeds 35 inches for women and 40 for men, it is associated with an increased risk of heart disease, metabolic syndrome, and overall mortality," Jensen says. He cautions that these numbers are simply guidelines, and recommends keeping your waist size below these numbers.

Losing Your Belly
There is no magical way to tackle belly fat other than the tried-and-true method of cutting calories and getting more physical activity. Monounsaturated fats and so-called "belly fat" diets won’t trim your belly faster than any healthy, low-calorie diet, Jensen says.
Because of the link between alcohol calories and belly fat, drinking less alcohol is a good place to start. Avoid binge drinking, which puts you at risk for liver damage and other serious health problems. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's 2005 Dietary Guidelines recommend limiting alcohol to one serving per day for women and two for men.
Beer lovers should opt for light beers with 100 calorie or less, and limit the number they drink per day. Another option is to drink alcohol only on weekends, and to alternate alcoholic drinks with low-calorie, non-alcohol beverages.
Don’t forget to have a healthy meal before or with your drinks to help you resist the temptation of high-calorie bar food.

Can Exercise Eliminate Your Beer Belly?
Doing sit-ups, crunches, or other abdominal exercises will strengthen your core muscles and help you hold in your belly fat, but won’t eliminate it. The only way to lose belly fat (or any kind of fat) is to lose weight.
Aerobic exercises like running, swimming, cycling, and tennis are some of the best to help reduce body fat. But "any kind of exercise will help you keep the weight off more effectively than diet alone," Jensen says.
The good news is that when you start losing weight, you tend to lose it in the midsection first. "Visceral fat is more metabolically active and can be broken down quicker than other fat," Jensen says, "so it is usually the first to go, especially when you have a lot to lose."

THE FIFTEEN PROMISES OF MARY TO CHRISTIANS WHO RECITE THE ROSARY

01. Whoever shall faithfully serve me by the recitation of the Rosary, shall receive signal graces.
02. I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all those who shall recite the Rosary.
03. The Rosary shall be a powerful armor against Hell. It will destroy vice, decrease sin, and defeat heresies.
04. It will cause virtue and good works to flourish; it will obtain for souls the abundant mercy of God; it will withdraw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means!
05. The soul that recommends itself to me by the recitation of the Rosary shall not perish.
06. Whoever shall recite the Rosary devoutly, applying himself to the consideration of its sacred mysteries shall never be conquered by misfortune. God will not chastise him in His justice, by an unprovided death; if he is just, he shall remain in the grace of God, and become worthy of eternal life.
07. Whoever shall have a true devotion to the Rosary shall not die without the sacraments of the Church.
08. Those who are faithful to recite the Rosary shall have during their life and at their death the light of God and the plenitude of His graces; at the moment of death they shall participate in the merits of the saints in Paradise.
09. I shall deliver from Purgatory those who have been devoted to the Rosary.
10. The faithful children of the Rosary shall merit a high degree of glory in heaven.
11. You shall obtain all you ask of me by the recitation of the Rosary.
12. All those who propagate the holy Rosary shall be aided by me in their necessities.
13. I have obtained from my Divine Son that all the advocates of the Rosary shall have for intercessors the entire celestial court during their life and at the hour of death.
14. All who recite the Rosary are my sons / daughters, and brothers / sisters of my only Son, Jesus Christ.
15. Devotion to my Rosary is a great sign of predestination.

Given to St. Dominic and Blessed Alan
Imprimatur: Patrick J. Hayes D.D. Archbishop of New York
