Trump's proposed budget announced:
On Monday the White House announced he will seek a $54bn hike in spending on tanks, ships and weapons systems while cutting foreign aid, environmental programmes and domestic agencies by the same amount. The US already spends more on the military than the next eight countries combined.
Is this how we should spend 54 BILLION DOLLARS??
We already have the worlds' largest military by far. Do we really need more massive weaponry?
Wouldn't our money be better spent on the sick, the poor, the disabled -- or even on our crumbling infrastructure? Perhaps we could even repair our roads, bridges, subways, mass transit systems, water systems, electrical grids etc.
It's your money we're talking about here. Please tell your Congressional Representative and your Senator what you think.
When We Rise, a new docudrama airing on ABC, tells the epic story of the modern gay rights movement, from its infancy in the mid 20th Century thru today. To our knowledge, this is the most comprehensive television treatment of LGBT rights history attempted to date.
The series will air on ABC tonight, February 27, at 9 p.m. The remaining three episodes air from March 1st to March 3rd at (9 P.M.).
Also, at 8PM on Thursday ABC will air When We Rise: The People Behind the Story, which will feature interviews with the real life people that the characters are based on.
We highly recommend watching.
Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow.
It empties today of its strength.

But inevitably, when I can't harm the people who harmed me, I just end up harming the people who love me. So maybe retaliation or holding on to anger . . . doesn't actually combat evil. Maybe it feeds it. In the end, . . . we can actually absorb the worst of our enemy and on some level even become them.

PLEASE COME FOR OUR ANNUAL GATHERING!
We had a meeting some time back that was supposed to be an annual thing. (Oops!) So now we are setting a precedent (Here's hoping!) by attaching it to the feast day of St. Bridget. We couldn't manage it ON her feast day, so FEBRUARY 11 will do! Won't you join us for mass at 5 pm and stay for a conversation about what matters to YOU in liturgy, community and social awareness? If you work it right, there will even be some good things to eat!
COME ON DOWN!
All love is expansion,
all selfishness is contraction.
Love is therefore the only law of life.
[One]who loves lives,
[one] who is selfish is dying.
Therefore love for love's sake,
because it is the only law of life,
just as you breathe to live.
