Dump Angie's List
Dear friends,
As you probably heard recently, the Angie's List boycott is gaining steam. The company halted a $40 million dollar exapnsion of their facility in Indiana to protest the state's recently passed law protecting religious liberty. In response, many national groups have asked their supporters to "Dump Angie's List." We're encouraging everyone to join in that national effort and take one small step: if you have a membership with Angie's List, we encourage you to cancel it.

Here is how you can cancel your Angie's List membership:
1) Sign into your account. Leave one last review on Angie's List of any company you like that makes clear that you are leaving Angie's List because they oppose religious freedom. Encourage everyone else to do this same.

2) At the right hand bottom corner of the page is a "Contact Us" button. Click that button. On the next page is a drop down menu under, "My Question is About" select "Membership Cancellation." Under subject write in "Cancel My Membership." Finally, write in the question box that you are cancelling Angie's List because of their efforts to oppose Religious Liberty legislation in Indiana. Ask that your account be canceled immediately.

Many voices joined together show that we can make a difference. Thank you!
God Bless America,
Jay G.

If you are pro-life and pro-marriage (whatever you think about “the Enlightenment’s” responsibility for our current plight), get yourself into the fight. You are needed. Enough with the defeatism. Stand up for the child in the womb. Bear witness to marriage as the conjugal union of husband and wife. Take the personal and professional risks that come with bearing witness. Meet the sacrifices it demands. No excuses. - Robby George

PEARLS OF PADRE PIO (#2), taken from "Counsels, Exhortations: Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, Italy" : "That which comes from Satan begins with calmness and ends in storm, indifference and apathy" (p.15).

SERIES ON FAITH (#18) More from WORSHIPPING A HIDDEN GOD: Unlocking the Secrets of the Interior Life by Archbishop Luis M. Martinez (Sophia Institute Press: Manchester, New Hampshire: 2003, 2014):

"This is what we must do during prayer when we suffer desolation: keep our eyes fixed on the road. If, at some time, we have enjoyed sweet, tranquil prayer, let us strive to recapture it; let us do without joy and pleasure what we do with joy and pleasure on days of consolation. Whoever has experienced such prayer will know how to make his prayer when he is desolate -- not, of course, with sweetness, but with the same care and ingenuousness. If any feeling enters into that simple gaze upon God, it seems to me that it should be an utter self-abnegation in the presence of God and an abandonment to Him: 'I am nothing, but I place myself at Your disposition. Here I am' " (p. 207).

SERIES ON FAITH (#11) More from WORSHIPPING A HIDDEN GOD: Unlocking the Secrets of the Interior Life by Archbishop Luis M. Martinez (Sophia Institute Press: Manchester, New Hampshire: 2003, 2014):

"Somewhere, either in history or in legend, I read that God once said to Tauler, that doctor of the Middle Ages, that He was going to give him a master of the spiritual life. Tauler was to go to a certain church, and there at the door he would find this master. Tauler went and encountered a miserable beggar covered with rags. He greeted him and bade him good day. The beggar answered him, assuring him that all his days were good, since God sent all of them to him. Tauler understood the deep spiritual doctrine that those words contained.

Stand up for Indiana!
By Patrick J. Buchanan
In what has been called the “Catholic moment” in America, in the late 1940s and 1950s, Catholics were admonished from pulpits to “live the faith” and “set an example” for others.
Public lives were to reflect moral beliefs. Christians were to avoid those “living in sin.” Christians who operated motels and hotels did not rent rooms to unmarried couples. Fast forward to 21st-century America.
Indiana just enacted a law, as have 19 other states, to protect the rights of religious people to practice their beliefs in how they live their lives and conduct their businesses.
And the reaction? Nearly hysterical.
