MARQUETTE — Pope Benedict XVI announced on Monday that he lacks the strength to fulfill his duties and will be resigning on February 28, 2013. Following the announcement, Archbishop Alexander K. Sample released a statement regarding the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI.

Statement from Archbishop Alexander K. Sample:

“Along with all Catholics throughout the world, I woke up this morning to the stunning news that our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, has made the historically momentous decision to resign his office as the Bishop of Rome and Successor to St. Peter the Apostle.

I receive this news with a certain personal sadness, as I have a great affection for Pope Benedict XVI. He appointed me to be a bishop here in the Diocese of Marquette and now the new Archbishop of Portland. I have met him on several occasions and have always been struck by his kindness and gentle humility. I have been inspired by his steadfast and faithful leadership of the Universal Church.

I have great admiration for him as he makes this very difficult and humble decision to step down from the office of Supreme Pastor of the Church. He clearly recognizes that his strength of mind and body as he ages is no longer adequate to sustain him in such an important ministry. I have no doubt that he came to this decision through much prayer and guided by the Holy Spirit.

We now entrust the election of a new Pope to the same Holy Spirit. This is Christ’s Church, and I have faith and trust that he will raise up a new Holy Father according to his own Sacred Heart. I pray for Pope Benedict XVI. May God be good to him and sustain him in his loving care.”

Ordain A Lady: One small step (back) for women, one giant leap for moonbats…

…It only makes sense in view of the fact that the Women’s Ordination Conference would, ‘beg, borrow, and steal’ from an idol.

And lest any soul believe that the church discriminates or disrespects the dignity of Catholic women in forbidding their ordination, here is why it doesn’t: ORDINATIO SACERDOTALIS, Pope John Paul II

Should anything tragic ever happen to my family – heaven forbid – and the media and photographers descend on me like a flock of crows, may God grant me the grace to resist the impulse to shove their cameras so far up their asses that they can take pictures of the cavity where their hearts used to be.

Obama’s “shared sacrifice…”
Collectivism. Centralized planning. Socialism.

As a Catholic who works in the trade association profession in the auto industry it was unsettling to hear President Obama claim that he saved the auto industry.  President Obama closed over 2,200 auto dealerships, which caused the losses of decades old family-owned businesses and over 120,000 jobs they provided.  The closures were allowed to happen under the false notion that auto dealerships were an expense on their auto maker.  The President ignored the fact that auto dealers are not an expense to automakers.  Auto makers own none of what you see at auto dealerships.  Auto dealers own all their property;  the cars and trucks, parts, buildings, land, signs, everything.  The dealerships pay their employee’s salaries and millions of dollars in taxes to state and local governments.  The manufacturer has nothing to do with any of these things.

Facts:

  • President Obama purposefully and unjustly took away 2,200 self-sufficient, family owned…
