Similar to what I found yesterday here is a list of all of the same categorized by century starting at the 1st century even going back to the Old Testament all the way up to the 21st century so it's a very handy guide for anybody looking for specific information about a particular Saints

I was just doing some research on Wikipedia and I was looking up information about Catholic saints and I found a listing on their website thousands of saints. And it also shows which denominations actually venerate the Saints such as the Orthodox or anglicans and so on.

Today we celebrate the Feast of Christ the King. That means in one week from now will be the first Sunday of Advent - November 27. Advent is a time of preparation, but perhaps we need to prepare ourselves for Advent also!

St John of God, you are honored as the patron of those who are afflicted by heart disease. Obtain for me the Grace from God to be well again. Bless me with a healthy heart, I asked you for your intercession and help. Grant that I received the favor for which I ask Through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

Very interesting article about how the Church is far from opposed to science.

Bob Wakeham recently wrote an article in the local Telegram in St. John's Newfoundland Canada. In it, he bemoans the Church's teaching on cremation. He says his dad wanted his ashes spread in the ocean and his father's brother also wanted to keep some of the ashes.
So of course, as usual, when Bob found out his actions violated Church laws, he started bashing the Church. Typical Catholic. Now, Bob says he left the church long ago, but he was afraid some of his relatives stilled cared what they church taught.
Bob is a typical modern-day Catholic. They do whatever they feel like, and when they find out they are violating a church rule, they lash out at the Church. They should listen to St. Augustine who said if you only follow the parts of the Church you agree with and reject the rest, it's not the Church you're following but yourself.
At least Bob decided to leave the Church. Others will linger on and try to "change it from within". But although he has left the Church, he cannot leave it alone. To him, and many like him, the Catholic Church is the source of all life's troubles. Everything would be so great if only the Church would get out of their way. Well, if they were truthful they'd realize it's not the Church that's in their way but their own conscience.
Instead of realizing they must change or improve, they blame the Church. It's called projection. You do something wrong. You feel guilty. You look for a target to blame.
Bob obviously learned next to nothing from his childhood exposure to Catholicism. He makes one mistake after another in his virtually unreadable opinion piece. He is so proud of himself for being such an independent thinker. He really has to get over himself big time. He's not as clever as he thinks.
There are so many errors in what he said, it's hard to know where to begin. One thing he says is:
Last week’s proclamation from the Pope — I presume this was one of those “ex cathedra” announcements, meaning the pope is infallible on “matters of faith or morals” — also ordered that Catholics not keep the ashes of loved ones in private homes.

I'm so sick and tired of politicians talking about how "we" must educate "our" children. No, you don't own them. Keep your hands off them! Public education is a sham and a scam. It's expensive (something like $13000 per student per year), and extremely ineffective. It's all about control and promoting propaganda. We must fight back and stop this total nonsense!
