THIS WOMAN WRITES You Can't Do It All. God Doesn't Ask You to.
I don't know about you, but I tend to be relatively pleased with myself.
I mean, I'm a hard worker, reasonably intelligent (okay, I think I'm pretty intelligent; I do, after all, enjoy Jane Austen'... Posted on 2/19/14 at 6:27 PM

Sharing a building on the campus of Saint John’s University in Collegeville, Minn., with 84 university students, all guys and all sophomores and juniors, means not every moment is peaceful. When peace is violated, we follow certain procedures to restore tranquility and good order while rehabilitating those who have offended.

When President Barack Obama raised the minimum wage by executive order, Republicans labeled him an imperialist, by definition a ruling emperor who exercises greater power than the law allows. Executive orders are granted in Article II, sections I and III of the Constitution to help the executive branch carry out mandated duties and take care that all laws are faithfully executed.
This is regarding Fr. Franz Graber (ordained June 1951 and died December 2003) and Fr. John Sustarcic (ordained 1952, came to St. Paul Seminary in 1949, and died Nov. 24, 2013). Graber was ordained one day after me and Sustarcic one year later, both for the Diocese of Duluth. Both came from Yugoslavia, only with much difficulty.

Their country had fought Hitler as our allies in World War II and was then betrayed at Yalta into Communist slavery under Stalin and then Tito. Like many others they barely escaped with their lives.

The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis may have significantly underreported its list of priests “credibly accused” of child sexual abuse, Minnesota Public Radio News reported this week, prompting questions about the completeness of other lists, including one released by the Diocese of Duluth.
For the third time in eight months, the Catholic Diocese of Duluth is the subject of a lawsuit seeking the public release of thousands of documents detailing the history of priest sex abuse cases in Northeastern Minnesota.
TWIG — After Pastor Brad Shannon preaches a sermon titled “Ordinary risk” to the congregation at New Life Covenant Church in Twig on Sunday, he’ll depart on his Ski Doo Renegade Back Country snowmobile.
Regarding the recent offenses taken at Global Village proprietress Rachel Mock’s Martin Luther King Jr. sale, with 25 percent off “everything black”: Like King, Jesus Christ was assassinated; yet no one seemed offended by 25 percent off sales on crosses, nativity scenes, and/or Bibles this past Christmas season.
