"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

'Tis the Season to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless ...

And it was the day before Thanksgiving and we told them, 'go away - you weren't invited!'

Jay Forge't lifts up his dog Mini after eating Thanksgiving dinner 
at Union Gospel Mission winter shelter.

Not in my house...

Let them eat cake in the shelters or the bars.

Especially if they are alcoholics, still screwed-up recovering addicts, annoying mental cases, cohabiting sleaze-balls, or gay perverts.  DO NOT SUPPORT THEIR LIFESTYLE by showing them hospitality!

That's why we have Missions, shelters, soup kitchens, gay bars, casinos, and so on - they can deal with them.  We can donate - even volunteer - but don't you dare come to my house and get me and my guests all upset.  We're not the dysfunctional ones and we will not allow you to disrupt our warm and fuzzy holiday festivities.  Go to the shelters - that's what they are for.

Just a thought.

Holidays are over-rated anyway.


Song for this post here.  What?


  1. I understand; sins are contagious, aren't they?

    1. I don't even leave my house. I order my groceries online and make the man leave them at the gate.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving Terry.

    1. Happy thanksgiving to you and all! God bless you!

  3. Terry, my friend, sometimes the confusion is so great that all we can do is pray Ps. 82:8, as our brothers in the Eastern Catholic and Orthodox Churches do at every Divine Liturgy: "Arise, O God, and judge the earth; for to Thee belong all the nations." As things are, I would rather be annihilated by the holiness of God than continue to creep along as a "nice traditional Catholic boy," if this is what it means. Sometimes I feel as though I've lived too long. Dear Lady, Joy of All Who Sorrow, intercede for us that your Son may give us hearts of flesh to replace our hearts of stone.

    Praying for you and yours, Terry, as always.

    1. Thanks Fr. - Happy Thanksgiving to you - you are in my prayers too - but I so much need yours. Thank you!
