MTV and the United States of Entertainment

“We [MTV] don’t just shoot for 14-year-olds; we own them,” – Bob Pittman, founder of MTV

“When an opponent declares, ‘I will not come over to your side,’ I say calmly, ‘Your child belongs to us already. What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing but this new community’.” – Adolf Hitler

Watched the documentary this evening with the family called “Captivated”.

I said afterwards to my kids: “Let’s do a 30-day media fast?”

My kids said: “If you do it and lead by example, we will too.”

Won’t pass up this opportunity. See you in 30 days!

Mother Dolores Hart visits Franciscan University

Here’s the audio MP3 of her talk on campus: https://files.me.com/keithmajor/pj6zbv.mp3

It is a story straight out of Hollywood. A beautiful young starlet walks away from a blossoming movie career to become a nun, and 50 years later she returns to the Academy Awards ceremony — as the subject of an Oscar-nominated film.

The real-life drama of Dolores Hart, known as Mother Prioress to the nuns here at the Abbey of Regina Laudis, unfolds in the HBO film “God Is the Bigger Elvis,” one of five nominees for best documentary (short subject). The 35-minute film examines Mother Dolores’ transformation from a Hollywood ingénue and the recipient of Elvis Presley’s first on-screen kiss to a cloistered Benedictine nun at the abbey, where for the past nine years she has been the prioress, the second in authority below the abbess, Mother David Serna.

Katyn + loss of Polish top leaders + St. Faustina Kowalska = ?

Today I watched the sobering movie “Katyn” that was nominated for an Academy Award (Oscar) for best foreign language film. This film is the first account of the long-suppressed Katyn massacre of 1940, in which more than fourteen thousand Polish prisoners-of-war, were murdered by the NKVD, the Soviet secret police.

They were murdered, one at a time, a fact that was recorded in their personal files. This is evidence that the Soviet Union failed to recognize or respect any international standards, not even with regard to prisoners of war. All the men who died did so as members of the Polish intelligentsia, and this paved the way for Stalin’s subjugation of Poland.

It is so ironic that Saturday’s crash of an aging Russian airliner ravaged the top levels of Poland’s military, political and church elite, killing the Polish president and dozens of other dignitaries as they traveled to a ceremony in Katyn to commemorate a slaughter that has divided the two nations for seven decades.


Today, Divine Mercy Sunday, the world remembers Polish saint, Faustina Kowalska. In 1937 she wrote: “As I was praying for Poland, I heard the words: I bear a special love for Poland, and if she will be obedient to My will, I will exalt her in might and holiness. From her will come forth the spark that will prepare the world for My final coming.”
God please have divine mercy on the nation of Poland and give her grace to complete that which you have planned for her to do in Europe and the world!

Call + Response Screening Premier!

On May 15th, I met with the producers of a film called “Call & Response – Concert to End Slavery.” It’s part concert, part documentary film that dissects the modern day slave trade. I viewed the film with them and a hand full of friends. After the viewing, it turned into a prayer meeting. We prayed for protection for the director and his wife (who was also there), the producers, and that the film would make a major impact on those who view it.

It was a very inspiring time for me. I applaud them and their efforts. My heart is 100% behind them, believing they have heard the heart beat of heaven and they are trying to do something to stop human trafficking.

everything you hold sacred

Biden and Pelosi, both Catholics, were asked about their stand on the issue of life at conception during recent TV interviews. Their answers which did not align with the teaching of the Catholic church, prompted a response from US Catholic bishops by publishing Fact sheet on pro-life and Church teaching on abortion.
