For those fans of LOLcats this should look familiar. LOLsaints uses images of saints with funny captions just like LOLcats uses photos of cats. However, LOLsaints has some reverence with their sometimes irreverent humor (this image is titled "Lazer Wounds"). Along with each image is some information about the saint or the scene depicted. You can comment on the images, rate them, discuss with other Catholics, and most of all laugh.

Law & Order: Anti Abortion?

I saw last week's Law & Order episode based on the Tiller murder and was amazingly surprised on how pro-life it was. Many main characters admitted to being pro-life, admitted most of America is pro-life, or had a change of opinion from pro-abortion to pro-life. I kept waiting for the big twist that would reveal that they really thought all these pro-lifers were extremists crazies, but it never came. I couldn't find the full episode online but while looking for it ran across Jill Stanek's post on it - so I'll just link to her since she pretty much said what I was going to say anyway! It includes a clip from the episode. Click here!

Katie Holmes' Daughter in Catholic Preschool

This report comes via American Papist who cites UK Daily Mail.

Katie Holmes has won a battle with her Scientologist husband Tom Cruise to enrol their daughter Suri in a Catholic pre-school.

The Church of Scientology has always been a bone of contention between the couple and Tom wanted three-year-old Suri to be raised a Scientologist.

But last week Katie enrolled the toddler at the Catholic Charities Yawkey Centre For Early Education And Learning in Boston, Massachusetts.

The family are living in the city while Tom, 47, films his new movie, the spy comedy thriller Wichita. Katie’s mother also flew in for her granddaughter’s first week at the pre-school.

‘Katie has been listening to her parents who are devout Catholics,’ I’m told.

‘She is not convinced by Scientology and has told Tom that she wants Suri to be educated as a Catholic – as she was.

‘They had been having huge problems agreeing on her school. To say they were having arguments is putting it mildly – but Tom came around to the idea in the end.’

Holmes, 30, has not been seen at the Church of Scientology for more than
five months.

But Cruise, who was also raised Catholic but converted to Scientology in 1990, remains an ardent follower.

However, the decision does not seem to have upset the couple's relationship.
Good for her!

Mel Gibson's Edge of Darkness

Looks like crazy Catholic actor, Mel Gibson, is going back to some of his acting roots as a tough revenge-seeking detective in his new movie Edge of Darkness. Yahoo Movies has the trailer.

Love the last line in a Bostonian accent, "You had better decide if you're hangin' on the cross or bangin' in the nails."

Mother Teresa vs President Obama on Peace

President Obama would do well to heed the words of the late great Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta from her Nobel Lecture when she won in 1979.

… I feel the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a direct war, a direct killing

President Obama recently won the Nobel Peace Prize, but there are those out there who say peace begins in the womb.

Respect Life Sunday

Sunday October 4th, 2009 was Respect Life Sunday. The Church reiterated that abortion and euthanasia are intrinsically evil and always wrong. Our priest added the very appropriate reminder that our morality comes from God and not from the government. Just because something is legal does not mean it is right. It kinda reminded me of something else...

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life...

Seems like the founders of our country had the right idea! Our rights come from God and chief among those rights is the right to life. What happened, America?
