Catholic Regional Message Board
I could give an entire list but these are the first 3 that came to mind:
The blessed virgin Mary who had been very important in my faith since I was a child.
St. Louis who inspired me to learn what the Catholic Church teaches.
St. Thomas Aquinas for showing me that faith and reason are not separate and because I like learning philosophy and theology.
My confirmation Saint..Francis. Not just one though but three. Saint Francis de Sales for one, he is the patron saint of journalists and I work in TV news.
Also it is said it took him over twenty years to combat his anger problems. Something I myself have been working on.
Francis Xavier. I attend a Jesuit parish and they've really took me and and have molded me into who I am now, and for that I'll be forever grateful. Plus, I admire the Jesuits and the education and missionary work, even though some of their beliefs may be a little too progressive for me...
Finally yes of course Francis of Assisi. Patron saint of animals, and I am a HUGE animal love. The other reason is that his early years are so similar to mine.
Francis is also the name of one of my great cousins that helped me get through college debt free, and I admire is passion to help us out.
I briefly went to a Xaverian Order high school named after Saint Francis Xavier. You might be interested in them. They are education focused, and less progressive. They run over a dozen high schools in the US.
I never thought the day would come when a rick roll would bring me to reflect on God...
"...Never gonna give you up, Never gonna let you down, Never gonna run around and desert you, Never gonna make you cry, Never gonna say goodbye, Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you..."
God isn't one to give up on us, isn't one to abandon us, though we may stray away from Him still He calls us back to Him.
"1 God, infinitely perfect and blessed in himself, in a plan of sheer goodness freely created man to make him share in his own blessed life. For this reason, at every time and in every place, God draws close to man. He calls man to seek him, to know him, to love him with all his strength. He calls together all men, scattered and divided by sin, into the unity of his family, the Church. To accomplish this, when the fullness of time had come, God sent his Son as Redeemer and Savior. In his Son and through him, he invites men to become, in the Holy Spirit, his adopted children and thus heirs of his blessed life." -Paragraph 1 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church
"13 Shout for joy, you heavens; earth, exult! Mountains, break into joyful cries! For Yahweh has consoled his people, is taking pity on his afflicted ones.
14 Zion was saying, 'Yahweh has abandoned me, the Lord has forgotten me.'
15 Can a woman forget her baby at the breast, feel no pity for the child she has borne? Even if these were to forget, I shall not forget you.
16 Look, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands, your ramparts are ever before me.
17 Your rebuilders are hurrying, your destroyers and despoilers will soon go away." Isaiah 49:13-17
Sorry I missed this.
Taxation is also affected by economic output, so if that decreases, the tax base is smaller, so the government has to increase taxes for the same amount of revenue. You want to be careful about that happening. Sometimes they say they will cut taxes but actually increase them.
Yeah, and I have past mistakes regarding issues which lowers taxes but the results are sometimes the opposite. It's kinda hard to find issues which lowers your taxes and get a few negative results in this game. Then again, I'm not surprised this game consists of many liberals who are anti-market or likes more taxation.
Also, on another note. Some WA regulations can put your tax at risk as well, and it can be very painful to see your tax rates magically rise the next day.
