Dancing on Pinnochio’s Grave: The Ten Lies of Socialism

You belong to your father, the devil, … for he is a liar and the father of lies. John 8:44
Thomas J. DiLorenzo is a libertarian professor of economics at Loyola University, Maryland. Some of his earlier works were highly controversial, especially in light of his attempt to debunk certain myths about Abraham Lincoln. The Problem with Socialism (2016) is one of his most recent and highly praised works. Historian Thomas E. Woods suggests anyone should “Dance on socialism’s grave by reading this book.” The bigger the lie, the bigger the tombstone to dance upon. There are lies, but then there

Please do spare a prayer and thought or two for Sister Maria Immaculata, of the Sisters of Our Lady Immaculate, who is making her final profession of the vows of religion – poverty, chastity and obedience – on Thursday, August 15th, at a Mass of the Assumption, at 3 p.m., Saint Clement’s Church in Cambridge, Ontario.
The Mass will be celebrated by Bishop Douglas Crosby, O.M.I., ordinary of the Hamilton diocese, and the music will certainly be transcendent.
A vocation to the religious life is the greatest gift Our Lady can offer a soul – Saint Philip Neri.

A thoughtful gift helps Caroline succeed in school

A thoughtful gift helps Caroline succeed in school

Even seemingly minor health issues can stand between a child receiving the most out of their education. Caroline, a sponsored teen from Nakuru, Kenya, lives with her mom and two siblings. Three years ago, Caroline started having issues with her eyesight. Her eyes suddenly became intolerant to bright lights, leading to discomfort in class and while studying. Her aching, red eyes would often trigger severe headaches.

Caroline was given painkillers for some time, but the irritation and headaches became too much to bear. Looking for answers, her mother took her to the hospital. Doctors discovered that Caroline’s brain was unable to adjust to various levels of brightness, causing light sensitivity.

As a single mother with three children in her care, Caroline’s mother was quickly overwhelmed by Caroline’s high medical bills. Caroline’s loving sponsors went out of their way to make sure that her medical bills were settled and that she was comfortable in school. They purchased her a special set of light sensitivity glasses, which shields her eyes from brightness and irritation!

Thanks to treatment and her light sensitivity glasses, Caroline is recovering and is able to study comfortably during the day and even at night with the lights on. Currently, Caroline is pursuing a degree in percussion instruments at Kenyatta University! During holidays, she takes joy in volunteering at a hospital near their home.

“Thank you for assisting Caroline and salvaging her studies,” says Sr. Jane, our Starehe Girls’ site director. “You are her strong pillar that she continues to lean on!”
