Living Faith snippets: “My mother had a great devotion to Mary…but most of all, her devotion consisted in imitating Mary’s faith. Many times when circumstances were painful or confusing, I heard my mother say, “The good Lord knows what He’s doing.” My mother trusted that all things work for good.” by Sr. Melanie Svoboda

Pat nuggets:
* Read up on the Theology of the Body ( to help yourself and others prevent serious consequences from our culture’s attack on sexuality. Focus on the Family is hosting a conference in C. Springs on 25 Oct titled, “Homosexuality – Proclaiming the truth with love.” Here are a few snippets from the brochure: “Homosexuality is one of the most difficult issues many individuals, families and churches face today. Popular culture tells us it’s simply an alternative way to live. Mainstream media promotes that it’s genetic and unchangeable. And the pro-gay movement seeks to politicize the education system, alter biblical truth regarding sexual behavior and redefine the meaning of marriage and family. Some Christians want to know how to stand faithfully in their biblical beliefs about human sexuality while also reaching out lovingly to those affected by homosexuality.”

* “The president of a pro-family values mutual fund company…[screens] companies whose revenues or actions support pornography, abortion, anti-family entertainment, or promotion of non-married lifestyles. But Art Ally, president of the investment company, says his group normally does not spotlight or publish notices on businesses they screen out. In this case, however, he says the Timothy Plan could not stay silent when McDonald’s went “over the edge.” “McDonald’s actually has been on our screen or prohibited list since 1999 — so this is nothing new,” says Ally. “What is new is the aggressive approach that they’re moving to, in promoting and supporting the homosexual agenda.” The fast-food giant’s $20,000 donation to the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce for a seat on its board of directors, and labeling of those who oppose the homosexual agenda as “haters” — both of which Ally says marked an extreme step up from sponsorship of TV programs and movies with anti-family and pornographic entertainment. Those actions, coupled with offering its employees transgender health benefits, have kept McDonald’s out of Timothy Plan investments.” American Family Association shared: “In January, McDonald’s paid for 56 employees to attend the “Pioneer Summit” in San Diego. The purpose of the meeting was to develop a plan to promote the gay agenda within the company (including homosexual marriage). AFA has asked McDonald’s to remain neutral in the culture battle. McDonald’s has refused. Sign the online Boycott McDonald’s petition.
