Labyrinths Exposed


Today we posted a new Category of Links, “Labyrinths.” Right Margin.  Hover over each link to determine whether the site supports or opposes labyrinths.

We strongly oppose labyrinths on Catholic-operated properties.

Our renewed interest in the existence of labyrinths approved by local Catholic officials began when The Grotto, a National Shrine to Our Lady of Sorrows in Portland, was attacked.  Two statues were beheaded in December 2012.

We visited The Grotto Upper Garden and witnessed the damaged statues.  It broke our hearts.  And nearby is the pagan Labyrinth.

Whomever beheaded these blessed statues hate Catholics.  The Grotto’s labyrinth is located on the Upper Garden level, near the Grotto Servite Monastery.  Why is this tolerated?

In Beaverton, Oregon a labyrinth was blessed by Catholic Auxilliary Bishop Steiner (retired) at the “Catholic-Lutheran” church, Mission of the AttonementImage Bishop Steiner blessing labyrinth in Beaverton at the Catholic-Lutheran Community, Mission of the Atonement.

A third labyrinth locally is at the Catholic-operated Marylhurst College in West Linn.

Traditional Catholics must become familiarized with the history and dangers of this “alternative spirituality.”  Labyrinths are not Christian!  They are pagan.  Labyrinths are part of Wiccan practices.

Your editor has viewed a variety of labyrinths on the Internet.  Our conclusion is they are pornographic, some more so than others.

Nostalgic for Catholic Nurses in Habits? Me, Too

a nursing Sister of Providence in habit

“Oregon is not a kill state.”  Sister Helen Prejean, referring to her perception of Oregonians’ anti-death penalty sentiments.

But Oregon is a kill state.  The first state to legalize “physician assisted suicide” of patients.  And if we don’t become informed, we can write our own death warrant if we have a “Living Will,” which cleverly leads patients to choose “death by dehydration,” a type of assisted suicide (see Terri Schiavo).

Instead, all of us need an Advance Directive that specifically states our wishes at end of life for water and nutrition.  Water and nutrition are now considered by physicians as “medical care.”  Wrong!  These are necessary for a comfortable death.

You and I may be a patient in a Catholic hospital, like Providence, one day.  Gone is the guarantee that we will be cared for by traditional nurses and doctors who will not want to kill us.

And I haven’t begun talking about how uncomfortable it is to see a Muslim nurse in a Catholic hospital!  I’m shocked that the Archdiocesan Catholic Directory approved the photo below!    But, then again, thinking it over, this archdiocese, like every diocese in America, is no longer thinking with Rome.  It’s all ecumenism now, syncretism:  all religions are equally valid to them.

Just don’t complain because Sharia is creeping, creeping, creeping.
