Burning Aborted Babies From Canada. Generates Electricity in Oregon from
God please help Our Country from this terrible abuse termed biomedical waste.
An energy plant in Oregon is reportedly burning aborted babies from Canada to generate electricity. UPDATE: Local officials say they will stop the practice while they look into the situation.
The British Columbia Catholic newspaper reported in its edition this week that the remains of aborted and miscarried children from the Canadian province are likely being mixed with everyday trash and sent to an energy plant in Oregon. The paper contacted the British Columbia Health Ministry and received a response back saying that “biomedical waste,” including “human tissue” and “fetal tissue” are being disposed of through officially approved contractors. The provincials officials also confirmed some of that “waste” is shipped to Oregon.
Commissioner Sam Brentano stated,
We provide an important service to the people of this state and it would be a travesty if this program is jeopardized due to this finding. We thought our ordinance excluded this type of material at the waste-to-energy facility. We will take immediate action to ensure a process is developed to prohibit human tissue from future deliveries.”

Easter Sunday. The Resurrection. Luke 24: 6-10.
“He is risen.” The Resurrection of Christ is a pledge of our own resurrection. It is the foundation upon which our faith rests. It is the guarantee of our redemption and God’s assurance that our sins are forgiven and that we are called to eternal life. “This is the day which the Lord hath made; let us be glad and rejoice therein. Give praise to the Lord, for He is good, for His mercy endures forever. Alleluia.” “Christ our Pasch is sacrificed. . . . The Lamb redeems the sheep. Christ, the innocent One, hath reconciled sinners to the Father.”
6 He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, 7 that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise.” 8 And they remembered his words, 9 and returning from the tomb they told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest. 10 Now it was Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James and the other women with them who told these things to the apostles,

Good Friday, The Crucifixion, A Day of Mourning
Today the whole Church mourns the death of our Savior. This is traditionally a day of sadness, spent in fasting and prayer. The title for this day varies in different parts of the world: “Holy Friday” for Latin nations, Slavs and Hungarians call it “Great Friday,” in Germany it is “Friday of Mourning,” and in Norway, it is “Long Friday.” Some view the term “Good Friday” (used in English and Dutch) as a corruption of the term “God’s Friday.” This is another obligatory day of fasting and abstinence. In Ireland, they practice the “black fast,” which is to consume nothing but black tea and water.
26 When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son!” 27 Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.
28 After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said (to fulfill the Scripture), “I thirst.” 29 A jar full of sour wine stood there, so they put a sponge full of the sour wine on a hyssop branch and held it to his mouth. 30 When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
17 and he went out, bearing his own cross, to the place called The Place of a Skull, which in Aramaic is called Golgotha. 18 There they crucified him, and with him two others, one on either side, and Jesus between them. 19 Pilate also wrote an inscription and put it on the cross. It read, “Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews.”

Holy Thursday, The Last Supper, Garden of Olives.
The last three days of Holy Week are referred to as the Easter or Sacred Triduum (Triduum Sacrum), the three-part drama of Christ’s redemption: Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday.
Holy Thursday is also known as “Maundy Thursday.” The word maundy comes from the Latin word mandatum (commandment) which is the first word of the Gospel acclamation: Mandátum novum do vobis dicit Dóminus, ut diligátis ínvicem, sicut diléxi vos. “I give you a new commandment: Love one another as I have loved you.” (John 13:34)
12In pouring this ointment on my body, she has done it to prepare me for burial.
14Then one of the twelve, whose name was Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests 15and said, “What will you give me if I deliver him over to you?” And they paid him thirty pieces of silver. 16And from that moment he sought an opportunity to betray him.
18He said, “Go into the city to a certain man and say to him, ‘The Teacher says, My time is at hand. I will keep the Passover at your house with my disciples.
26Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.” 27And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you, 28for this is my blood of thec covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
1Then Jesus said to them, “You will all fall away because of me this night. For it is written, ‘I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.’ 32But after I am raised up, I will go before you to Galilee.
38Then he said to them, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death; remain here, and watchd with me.” 39And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will.”
45Then he came to the disciples and said to them, “Sleep and take your rest later on.e See, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 46Rise, let us be going; see, my betrayer is at hand.”
75And Peter remembered the saying of Jesus, “Before the rooster crows, you will deny me three times.” And he went out and wept bitterly.

Phillies Fans’ Response to Dan Uggla’s Grand Slam.
Yes, I viewed this game. Dom Brown hit a 3 run HR to go ahead in the 8th, 6-5. Rosenberg had just gave up 3 back to back HR’s in relief in the 8th. No pitcher since 1914 had allowed home runs to the only three batters?
Papelbon wasn’t available to close since he pitched 3 previous games. Really, making $13M in 2014, can’t close? He only pitched 3 innings in 3 days. Enter Diekman. He loads the bases.
The Braves Uggla (the Phillie killer) hits a Grand Slam to ruin the Phillies win.
Enough said, but this game hurt this Phillies fan. ( I was texting my cousin Marjorie during the 8th until the end of game, another die-hard)
Bring back Charlie.
Deadspin has an excellent video in slow motion, check below link.

Rollins Motivational Speech, The Anonymous Heckler, Saturday Night Vs. Marlins.
My cousin Marjorie and I was at the Friday Night Home game. I was her guest in Section 110. Marjorie is a dedicated Phillies fan. She has gear from her head to her toes and even brought her glove. The rain never came either. We won but the stadium was half full. Hey fans scream, we screamed. But Saturday nights game I was viewing from my comfy sectional couch. Again, another half full CBP. But the end of the game you’re talking 1/4 of fans. Game was tied in the 10th. J-Roll hit the game winning home run beat the Miami Marlins 5-4. He then stated in the post game interview that a person in the stands was yelling at him. That gave him the incentive to swing at a 2-2 pitch and nail it into the stands and his remarks to the fan after. ( You can read lips) Now remember, Rollins is in the dugout and voice came from the stands many rows above. Rollins had to have his antenna’s up to hear what the fan said or was the fan heckling him numerous times during the game. Yes, Rollins can hear correctly and so did the fan.
There was some fan in the stands popping off,” Rollins said. “He was right behind our dugout, close enough to yell and piss me off, honestly. It was something pretty ignorant, but it worked.”
BTW, the Fish were swept by the Phillies this weekend.
( Hey Marjorie, I have the pics from the game, turned out great but I am under the weather at the present. Will upload them shortly. Must have been all that excitement Friday night.)

Total Lunar Eclipse, Series of Four Blood Moons Beginning Apr 15, 2014.
Look up at the night sky April 15th. The US will be able to view the first total full lunar eclipse of 2014.. The first total lunar eclipse of 2014 will occur overnight on April 14-15, and mark the beginning of an eclipse tetrad – four back-to-back total lunar eclipses.
I have been speaking to people warning them about the full moon this month but did not know why. Then, I just researched it. It is that 6th sense again.. This full moon is having a very strong pull emotionally and physically on myself. Since 1 AD, this tetrad has occurred on these holy days a total of 7 times. In 2014-2015, it will be the 8th time. It won’t occur again for another 500 years.
