Hall of Planned Parenthood shame: Robert T. Pizzano General Contractors

Copyright Anita Crane On Friday, August 21, the Restore-DC-Catholicism blog revealed that Catholic-owned Robert T. Pizzano General Contractors is building the new Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Washington. Their office address is 1019 Cameron Street, Alexandria, Virginia 22314. I hoped it wasn’t true and called to verify. A female receptionist said: “Yes. It’s true. That’s what we’re in business […]

    Yesh Tikvah: There Is Hope
  • There is hope, truth and love in Truth and Love Himself To get the song, click here Yesh Tikvah sung solo by Benny Friedman in the music video, but with Six13 on the MP3 version Look around, far and near Where's the joy, where's the cheer? Why the fear, why the frown? Why the smile upside down? Shake yourself from the dust Scrape your soul from the rust Know that this too shall pass For in G-d we trust There is hope If we sing our hope together We have faith that is stronger than the terror No despair, no dismay Everything will be okay He is with us night and day Brother dear Dry your tears Take my hand, never fear Let's advance, side by side And let's cast our fright aside Don't forget all the love That we have from Above And you'll see with the dawn All the pain will be gone Credits listed on YouTube: "Yesh Tikvah" is the title track of Benny Friedman's CD. The song serves as an important reminder, an anthem, that even in these tough and trying times, Yesh tikvah! There is hope! The song was composed by Ari Goldwag with lyrics by Miriam Israel and it was arranged by Ian Freitor. "Yesh Tikvah" and the entire album were produced by Avi Newmark. The excellent lyrics are translated into English by Rabbi Eli Freidman. And the music video was produced by Moshe Bree of Ingenious Productions. #
  • When a problem comes along, you must whip it
  • I can't help it. This is one of my favorite songs. It makes me laugh, good day or bad. To get the song, click here. Lyrics follow the video. Official band website: ClubDevo.com Bob Casel passed away in 2014. I know nothing about the band members or their beliefs, but may Bob rest in peace. "Whip It" by Devo Crack that whip Give the past the slip Step on a crack Break your mama's back When a problem comes along, you must whip it Before the cream sits out too long, you must whip it When something's going wrong, you must whip it Now whip it into shape Shape it up Get straight Go forward Move ahead Try to detect it It's not too late to whip it Whip it good When a good time turns around, you must whip it You will never live it down unless you whip it No one gets their way until they whip it I say whip it, whip it good I say whip it, whip it good Crack that whip Give the past the slip Step on a crack Break your mama's back When a problem comes along, you must whip it Before the cream sits out too long, you must whip it When something's going wrong, you must whip it Now whip it into shape Shape it up Get straight Go forward Move ahead Try to detect it It's not too late to whip it into shape Shape it up Get straight Go forward Move ahead Try to detect it It's not too late to whip it Whip it good Songwriters: Mark Allen Mothersbaugh and Gerald Casale. #

  • The Wexford Carol performed by Alison Krauss and Yo-Yo Ma
  • Here's the beautiful 12th century Irish Christmas carol beautifully sung by Alison Krauss. I just wish Mary's "guide," Saint Joseph, was named. At Wiki, someone has written the song's history, the lyrics in English and Gaelic, and numerous recording artists. "With Mary holy, we should pray "To God with love, this Christmas Day..." You may get the Alison Krauss and Yo-Yo Ma recording by clicking here. Below that is Libera's lovely but quite different performance in Ireland, which you may get by clicking here. The Wexford Carol Good people all, this Christmas time, Consider well and bear in mind What our good God for us has done In sending His beloved Son With Mary holy we should pray, To God with love this Christmas Day In Bethlehem upon that morn, There was a blessed Messiah born The night before that happy tide The noble Virgin and her guide Were long time seeking up and down To find a lodging in the town But mark right well what came to pass From every door repelled, alas As was foretold, their refuge all Was but a humble ox’s stall Near Bethlehem did shepherds keep Their flocks of lambs and feeding sheep To whom God’s angel did appear Which put the shepherds in great fear Arise and go, the angels said To Bethlehem, be not afraid For there you'll find, this happy morn A princely babe, sweet Jesus, born With thankful heart and joyful mind The shepherds went the babe to find And as God's angel had foretold They did our Saviour Christ behold Within a manger He was laid And by His side a virgin maid Attending on the Lord of Life Who came on Earth to end all strife There were three wise men from afar Directed by a glorious star And on they wandered night and day Until they came where Jesus lay And when they came unto that place Where our beloved Messiah lay They humbly cast them at his feet With gifts of gold and incense sweet. #
  • IN DULCI JUBILO
  • Beautiful! IN DULCI JUBILO is one of my favorite Christmas carols. Merry Christmas to you! The original German/Latin song was written by Dominican monk Henry Suso, circa 1320. The English version by Robert Pearsall (1834) follows the original Catholic German “macaronic” style of mixing Latin with the vernacular language. Pearsall was an English composer living in Germany at the time. Thanks to the website AboutGerman.net, the lyrics and Latin translations follow Libera's music video. You can  get the song by clicking my Amazon widget or here. IN DULCI JUBILO In dulci jubilo Now sing with hearts aglow! Our delight and pleasure lies in praesepio; Like sunshine is our treasure matris in gremio; Alpha es et O! Alpha es et O! O Jesu, parvule, For thee I sing always; Comfort my heart's blindness, O puer optime, with all thy loving kindness, O princeps gloriae; Trahe me post te! Trahe me post te! O Patris caritas! O Nati lenitas! Deeply were we stained per nostra crimina; But thou for us hast gained Coelorum gaudia: Oh, that we were there! Oh, that we were there! Ubi sunt gaudia in any place but there? There are angels singing nova cantica And there the bells are ringing in Regis curia. Oh, that we were there! Oh, that we were there! Latin phrases in the song IN DULCI JUBILO in dulci jubilo = in sweet jubilation in praesepio = in a manger matris in gremio = in his mother's lap Alpha es et O! = Thou art Alpha and Omega! (beginning and end) O Jesu, parvule = O tiny Jesus O puer optime = O best of boys O princeps gloriae = O Prince of Glory Trahe me post te = Draw me after thee (make me follow you) O patris caritas = O love of the Father O nati lenitas = O gentleness of the Son per nostra crimina = through our crimes coelorum gaudia/caelorum gaudia = the joys of heaven Ubi sunt gaudia = Where are joys? nova cantica = new songs in Regis curia = in the courts of the King #
