Pope Francis Unveils New ‘Click To Pray’ App

 

 

 

Are you there, Pope Francis? It’s me …

The Holy Father launched an app called “Click to Pray” on Sunday that’ll allow the world’s 1.3 billion Roman Catholics to join him in prayer.

The pontiff has a profile on the Android and iOS app that shows Catholics around the globe what he’s currently praying for. Users can then click an icon to indicate that they’ve prayed with him.

Thousands of faithful watched Sunday as Francis — who once said he was a “disaster” with technology — showed the app on a tablet at his weekly address in St. Peter’s Square.

“Did I do it?” Francis asked an aide after swiping on the tablet.

Still, Francis said the internet is a way “to stay in touch with others, to share values and projects and to express the desire to form a community.”

He specifically called for young people to download the app and pray with him — especially during World Youth Day 2019 in Panama, which begins Tuesday.

The pope then told crowds he had “two pains in his heart” that he was currently praying for: victims of the car bomb blast at a police academy in Colombia and the 170 migrants from Libya and Morocco who died in the Mediterranean.

The app is available in six languages and has an accompanying website, clicktopray.org.

Nancy Pelosi Charged The Air Force Nearly $200k To Fly Her Family And Other Lawmakers To Italy And Ukraine

Nan likes her duty-free dark chocolate and booze on these trips. And bringing her family.

Via Daily Caller:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s congressional delegation (CODEL) to Belgium, Egypt and Afghanistan garnered extra attention after President Donald Trump banned her from using military aircraft, but the trip would not have been the first time she used Air Force money to travel the world.

Pelosi’s trip to Italy and Ukraine from July 30 to Aug. 6, 2015, cost the Air Force $184,587.81, according to documents released Saturday under a 2015 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit by Judicial Watch. Her delegation was made up of nine other members of Congress, including Democratic Reps. Anna Eshoo of California and Marcia Fudge of Ohio.

Four family members, including Pelosi’s husband Paul Pelosi, were on the trip. The delegation dined at restaurants including James Beard American Restaurant in Milan, where a five-course meal cost up to $190, according to Fine Dining Lovers. The lawmakers also toured the Vatican and met up with Italian dignitaries, including President Sergio Mattarella and then-Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, according to their itinerary.

Pelosi’s team apparently had some pretty specific requests for the Air Force officials working with them to coordinate the trip.

Tom Brady & The Chiefs

Tom Brady, after living a full life, died. When he got to heaven, God was showing him around. They came to a nice little house with a faded Patriots flag in the window. “This house is yours for eternity Tom”, said God. “This is very special, not everyone gets a house up here.” Tom felt special, indeed, and walked up to his house. On his way up the porch, he noticed another house just around the corner. It was a HUGE 3 story mansion with Red and Gold sidewalks and drive ways, a 50 foot tall flagpole with an enormous Chiefs flag waving, a swimming pool in the shape of an arrowhead, a KC logo in every window, and a #15 Patrick Mahomes jersey on the front door. Tom looked at God and said “God, I’m not trying to be ungrateful, but I have a question. I was an all-pro QB, I won 5 Super Bowls, and I even went to the Hall of Fame.” God said “So what’s your point Tom?” “Well, why does Patrick Mahomes get a better house than me?” God chuckled, and said “Tom, that’s not Patrick’s house, it’s mine.”

Pelosi Appoints Anti-Israel Rep. Ilhan Omar To House Foreign Affairs Committee

 

Well done, Nancy.

JNS.org – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appointed Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) to serve on the House Foreign Affairs Committee despite anti-Israel statements made by the freshman Democrat, such as tweeting that “Israel has hypnotized the world,” and her support for the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement.

Republicans blasted the move.

“I would love to know what changed because Democratic leaders just promoted a pro-BDS Democrat to a key committee that deals with the State of Israel,” said House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.). “Antisemitism has no place in Congress and certainly not on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.”

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) said that by appointing Omar, “House Democrats have now just endorsed that ideology.”

Shelter Says Veterinarian Tried To Euthanize A Puppy. But “God Had a Different Plan,” And He Woke Up

 

Rudolph wasn’t supposed to survive.

The 7-month-old puppy was at a shelter so full, a veterinarian attempted to euthanize him, according to a Facebook post by King’s Harvest Pet Rescue in Davenport.

“But God had a different plan because he woke up,” according to King’s Harvest. “And thank goodness the vet said he wouldn’t do it again.” The other shelter wasn’t identified, and the nature of the failed euthanasia wasn’t specified.

King’s Harvest Pet Rescue, a no-kill shelter, took in Rudolph with the hopes that someone will want to adopt him, the shelter wrote.

And so far, people have shown overwhelming interest in the dog and his story, according to KWQC-TV. Over a thousand people shared the shelter’s Facebook postand hundreds commented to note their interest in adopting him.

“ANOTHER VOICE FOR THE UNBORN”

Via KRTV:

U.S. Senator Steve Daines announced Friday at the March for Life rally in the nation’s capital that he is forming the first ever “pro-life caucus” in the Senate.

The 46th Annual March for Life made its way to the U.S. Supreme Court steps Friday.

The event featured a rally of notable anti-abortion speakers, including Daines, a Montana Republican.

“Life begins at conception. Because of that, every life must be valued. This pro-life caucus and our new expanded pro-life majority, thank God in November we sent more pro-life senators to the to the United States Senate and that’s thanks to you,” Daines said. “That will allow us to accelerate the momentum of the past two years and protecting and defending life.”

Daines did not announce other Senate members of the caucus. The House has had a similar caucus since 1981, according to the National Review.

There was also a march from the National Mall to the Supreme Court.

This event is the largest annual gathering in the U.S. of opponents of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 ruling in Roe v. Wade, which effectively legalized abortion.

Catholic Pro-Life Children Now In Fear For Their Lives After Being Doxxed By Far Left Media

 

“ doxxed”—is the term used for the harassment technique of finding and then posting a user’s sensitive personal information, including addresses, phone numbers, and even Social Security numbers…….Papa Mike

 

BuzzFeed and the hateful left-wing media is at it again — these MAGA teens were doxxed and are now in fear for their lives! 

On Friday, a group of high school boys from Kentucky went to the Lincoln Memorial after attending the March For Life.

While standing at the memorial a group(?) of Native Americans were beating drums at the public memorial.

A Native American man, reportedly a Vietnam veteran, got up in one boy’s face and started screaming and beating his drum.

According to one of the high school boys who was present, a group of black men were taunting the Trump supporters, calling them “shooters” and “crackers” and said the white kids “had everything given to them by their parents.”

At first, the Trump supporting teens ignored the black men who were harassing them, but after the blacks continued to taunt the white kids, the white kids began to chant back at them.

According to a witness, it was at this point that a Native American man showed up “out of no where” and began drumming in the high school kid’s face.

“We weren’t even chanting at him, we were chanting at the African American guy, but obviously social media made us look bad to get views and stuff,” a witness said.

The media isn’t interested in facts — they want to push their left wing agenda so they doxxed the high school kids.

The high school boy was doxxed by the liberal fascist mob.

The boys are from a Catholic HIGH SCHOOL in Kentucky!

Daily Beast doxxed the high school.

Now BuzzFeed is reporting the high school kids may get expelled!

The kids are now in fear for their lives!

“My dad who was on the trip with me was being harassed all morning online and I’m honestly scared for my safety,” one of the teens said.
