Pope, arriving in Cyprus, tells Catholics to celebrate, welcome diversity - Georgia Bulletin

“We need a patient church,” he said, “a church that does not allow itself to be upset and troubled by change, but calmly welcomes newness and discerns situations in the light of the Gospel.”

https://georgiabulletin.org/news/2021/12/pope-arriving-in-cyprus-tells-catholics-to-celebrate-welcome-diversity/

The church is a mosaic of different rites and cultures and must show the beauty of welcoming all people, Pope Francis told the Catholics of Cyprus. He began his Dec. 2-4 visit to the island with a meeting with bishops, priests and religious rather than with government officials.

Pope, arriving in Cyprus, tells Catholics to celebrate, welcome diversity - Georgia Bulletin

On the flight from Rome to Larnaca, a city on the sea about 30 miles from Nicosia, Pope Francis told reporters, “It will be a beautiful trip, but we will touch some wounds.”

One of those wounds–the fact that for more than 40 years the island has been divided between the mostly Greek Cypriot south and the mostly Turkish Cypriot north–explained why the pope landed in Larnaca.

Justices seem willing to allow Mississippi's 15-week abortion ban - Georgia Bulletin

https://georgiabulletin.org/news/2021/12/justices-seem-willing-to-allow-mississippis-15-week-abortion-ban/

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, in a court brief supporting Mississippi, stressed that abortion is not a right created by the Constitution and called it “inherently different from other types of personal decisions to which this court has accorded constitutional protection.”

In the Supreme Court’s first major abortion case in decades–which looked at Mississippi’s ban on abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy–the majority of justices Dec. 1 seemed willing to let that ban stay in place. But it was unclear if they would take this further and overturn Roe.

Its that time of year once again when we begin to think about our New Year’s Resolutions. Resolving to pray the rosary daily would be a wonderful resolution to consider!

Vote OSSOFF & WARNOCK for GEORGIA WOMEN - VOTE STARTING THIS MONDAY, DECEMBER 14, 2020 THRU JANUARY 5, 2021. Your vote will make it a better year!
"... Diecisiete de los 26 fiscales generales republicanos del estado. Casi dos tercios de los republicanos de la Cámara de Representantes, unos 106 el jueves, y otros 20 se subieron al carro el viernes, incluido el líder de la minoría, Kevin McCarthy (California). Cada uno de estos individuos ha perdido cualquier pretensión de creer en cualquier cosa que no sea lealtad a Trump y su propio interés político. Porque nada podría ser menos conservador, menos consistente con los supuestos principios republicanos, que instar a un tribunal a anular una elección democrática ... "
"Joe Biden endorses Warnock, Ossoff in Georgia's U.S. Senate races...“We need [Warnock] in the Senate to keep up that fight and help push our country forward to restore the soul of this nation,” Biden said of Warnock. “I know Jon will put [his] passion to work for all Georgians, fighting for Georgia’s working families, not the powerful,” Biden said of Ossoff...."
"...Georgia deserves Senators who will show strong leadership in the face of a crisis. Reverend Raphael Warnock (D) and Jon Ossoff (D) are the right choice for Georgia. They are running to continue championing for hardworking Georgia families in the U.S. Senate...."
“...Reverend Warnock is a beloved friend and ally of Georgia’s Jewish community and a friend of Israel,” Ossoff said in a statement to the Forward last week. “Kelly Loeffler’s baseless attacks on the Reverend make me sick...” “...All the people in the African American community are staunch Ossoff supporters all the way,” said Durley. “There’s no way that someone would vote for Warnock and not vote for Ossoff — impossible....”
It’s up to the ppl of GA to decide if the country will keep its freedoms or turn socialist. Do the right thing and vote Republican Senators.
