I doubt I could take a whole program

filled with Newt's ego, especially week after week.
It would be demoralizing.

Medjugorje- ca 1990

I was on a tour of Yugoslavia- it was still one country at that time, though Tito had already died.
One of the stops was Medjugorje, which was the one of the reasons I wanted to make the trip. My spouse, though a faithful Catholic, would not have been interested in making a pilgrimage just to go there, but a trip to the various cities - Belgrade, Split, Dubrovnik, etc.- was fine.

Our tour group did meet one of the women visionaries. So we attended Mass & maybe confession , but no retreat, etc. The town was extremely touristy, even at that time.

As I stated, I had no mystical experience there, though I believe others (not in our group) that say they did.

The next year, I sent my sons there as part of trip to the whole peninsula. The son who remains a practicing Catholic, had no extraordinary experience, while the other son, who is non-practicing at this time, said he saw the swirling sun, etc.

A trip to Rome is a fine thing, uplifting but not necessarily with supernatural elements.

One has to wonder how the Diocese of Columbus deals with

unmarried heterosexuals cohabiting?
What steps do they take when such a relationship is known?
Or is it only homosexuals that are treated in this manner?

So he goes to Russia for six months

and leaves his American wife and baby, who apparently returned to her parents during his absence. Unless she's worked, her parents were likely supporting wife and baby.

Tamerlan reportedly told one of his relatives that his work was fixing cars. Again, not sure how he and brother got income for rent, food, car, gas, let alone money to make weapons of mass destruction.

Very peculiar goings-on.

Unfortunately for me

I have not had the type of experience you refer to.
I accept that apparently my psychology is not particularly receptive to that type of experience, sort of like some people cannot or should not be hypnotized.
I have been to Lourdes and Medjugore and saw or felt nothing other than what was physically obvious.

I don't doubt that some do have those actual experiences, though.

Poster is painting with a broad brush

After all, this is Massachusetts and the chances are more that the police are Dems are higher there than is most other areas.

Before floating such charges,check to see who the unions endoresed in recent elections. (I don't know the answer, but I wouldn't be throwing out statements without being better informed.)

Yes,

as an act of faith.

Thanks for the heads up

Having word the Romney will be on TV at 6p.m. is the incentive I need to get off my --- and go exercise this evening at 6p.m.

I pray for wisdom and strength for myself, especially for this day I am living.

I pray for my children individually, for my beloved deceased, including spouse, brother & sister, parents, grandparents, and other relatives, for my friends that are ill, the mentally ill, and caregivers.

I ask the Holy Spirit to send to me and my children the gifts of the Holy Spirit- wisdom, knowledge, understanding, counsel, courage, piety & fear of the Lord.

I thank God for the many gifts I have been given, including length of life and relatively good health, a sound mind, attentive family, the beautiful world including mountains and seas, and kind people.

I ask the intercession of Mary to guide my in my days.
When driving I pray for a calm attitude.

"He fell in love with someone else"

Well, la-de-da.
He is the father of four boys.
He had no right to put himself in the position of falling "in love with someone else."
His duty is and remains to raise his sons into decent men, and he's not giving them the example they deserve.
Jenny is classy in that she is raising those boys without a father, not an easy job, and will become more difficult when they are teenagers and nearing college age.

Mark Sanford not only cheated on Jenny, he cheated his four sons out of a decent father.
