A kind of non-denominational chaplaincy to the New World Order

In the first papal address ever given to the United States Congress by a Pope, the Vicar of Christ never mentioned Christ, but rather only Moses as the one who “leads us directly to God and thus to the transcendent dignity of the human being.” Given an historic opportunity to preach Catholic truth to secular power, Francis held up as models for imitation not Christ, nor any of the saints of the Catholic Church, but rather Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, the controversial convert Dorothy Day…

In the aftermath of the Pope’s address, even the Jewish radio talk show host Michael Savage could see what is happening.  He described it (during his show on September 25) as “a seamless integration of Church and State.” By this he means the de facto absorption of the Church into the modern state system and the reduction of the role of the papacy to that of a kind of non-denominational chaplaincy to the New World Order.

The Shrine of Christ’s Passion – St. John, Indiana – An Easy Drive from Chicago


My good friends Jola and Carol recently made the short pilgrimage to the shrine, and they were impressed and very inspired by what they found there.

From the official website:

The Shrine of Christ’s Passion is an interactive half-mile winding pathway that begins with the Last Supper and Garden of Gethsemane. You then journey through the Passion of Christ as depicted in the Stations of the Cross.
  • The Journey consists of 40 life size bronze statues
  • Each setting has a listening station featuring the voice of veteran broadcaster Bill Kurtis. Push the button to hear a description of the scene along with a corresponding prayer
  • Background music plays throughout your journey on 180 speakers
  • The pathway is illuminated for early evening use
  • The pathway will be open year round- weather permitting
  • Over 1000 trees and bushes were planted on the site
