Waterford on Tonight With Vincent Browne Programme- Negativity gone mad

The audience was monopolised by Sinn Fein, Halligan and Workers party supporters. This set the tone for a programme that largely ignored the positives and continuously emphasised the negative. The two Government TDs Paudie Coffey and Ciara Conway were barracked and heckled. They got little time to respond to criticisms of government policy. We had a Sean Martin attacking the government on Post Office closures. Between, 2005-2010, Fianna Fail closed 288 post offices. Only 23 Post Offices have closed under the FG/Labour government. Where was Sean Martin when FF was closing 288 post offices? Oh Sean is not political at all. Who the hell does he think he is codding?

One would think looking at the programme that there was nothing positive about Waterford city and county. I don't recognise the county and city represented in that programme. It has damaged Waterford's image. The heckling was a disgrace. Waterford has a lot going for it in spite of the knockers. The economy is recovering. There have been many jobs announcements in the last year: West Pharma, Eistech, Sun LIfe et al. Not one of the large number of contributors in the audience had a workable solution. John Halligan offered no solutions only higher taxation and a Financial Transactions Tax which would wipe out the Dublin Financial Services Centre and cost 15,000 jobs. John Halligan also wants higher rates of income tax. Executives of US multinational companies have already warned that high income tax rates are a disincentive to investment. If the Irish people are mad enough to fall for John Halligan's prescription, so be it. Incidentally Mr Halligan stated that Ireland was a very rich country seven years ago. Nonsense! It was floating on a sea of cheap credit which fueled an artificial property boom which provided a temporary boost to the National Finances. When the bubble burst property taxes dried up. Waterford needs to continually send out a positive message to encourage more investment. You wont see Kilkenny sending out such negative messages. The Cats are much too clever for that. The TDs who give it a miss are probably correct in their calculations. Government TDs just dont get a fair chance. The show is geared towards hyping up negativity.

Peoples debate my foot! It is just a rabble rousing programme monopolised by Sinn Fein supporters and the Hard Left. Waterford's competitors for investment can laugh tonight. Another og has been scored. Contrast the negativity from Waterford tonight with the positive publicity for the West today thanks to the Royal visit. Enough said. Some people never learn it seems.

Medjugorje Miracle Cure for Galway boy

Image © Connacht Tribune

A brave Galway boy celebrated his eleventh birthday last week – two years after his family was told that he had lost his battle with cancer. But Stephen Reilly’s 2013 trip to Medjugorje turned out to be a miraculous one – because he was pronounced cancer-free two months ago... Continue reading at Connacht Tribune

Ignore Swaggart Ministries/ Karen Frazier Romero ignorant attacks on Catholicism

Swaggart Ministries claims to preach the word of God. Interesting then how it regularly snipes at Catholicism. There is a regular misrepresentation of Catholicism on this channel. Swaggart Ministeries is not the True Church founded by Jesus Christ. Swaggart Ministries is of human origin. It is one of more than three thousand Protestant groups which have evolved since the Reformation. All are in error on Christian Docrtine. No two preach the same message. Much of what the Swaggart Ministries preaches is doctrinal nonsense. Catholics: Ignore those Protestant sects. "Born Again" groups are busy targeting Catholic recruits with a simplistic message. That message is NOT the teaching of Jesus Christ. The test of the True Church is whether it was founded by Jesus Christ or by a human being. Swaggart Ministries was founded by Jimmy Swaggart. It is not the Church of Jesus Christ. It is giving Jimmy Swaggart's interpretation of Christianity.

Jesus Christ founded Catholicism. Ipso facto it is the True Church. Jesus said to Peter: "Thou art Peter and on this rock I build my Church and I give to thee the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it". Peter was the fist Pope and was appointed by Jesus Christ. Pope Francis has a direct link back to the first Pope who was Peter. The Catholic Church has the Apostolic Succession. No Protestant Church has it.

The Catholic Church is not just one denomination among many. In fact, it is the only faith that can trace its founding roots back to Jesus Christ, who started our Church. For 2,000 years, the Catholic Church has guarded the truth that Jesus has taught, whether in or out of style. In the Church today, one can experience the most personal relationship with Christ through the Holy Eucharist, the gift of Christ’s Body and Blood to us. Since its founding, the Catholic Church has continued to be the largest body of Christians on earth. Though it’s not perfect, nor does it have perfect members, the Church still contains the fullness of truth, which Jesus promised would set us free.....( Catholics Come

Recently Swaggart Ministries featured an author and ex Catholic-Karen Frazier Romero- on its channel. She spent most of her appearance attacking Catholicism. It was glaringly obviously that she never had a full understanding of Catholic doctrine. These attacks would be demolished by people like Scott Hahn in seconds. Now of course she is interested in selling books to a certain market which relishes such attacks. Catholics should ignore her remarks and writings. She is out of her depth when commenting on Catholic doctrine and history. Her attacks on Catholicism and Pope Francis were appalling.

You get the TRUTH ON CATHOLICISM here:

Catholic TV Channels

Read various Catholic authors. Read: Rome Sweet Home Our Journey to Catholicism written by Scott and Kimberly Hahn who were Protestants but on investigation discovered that the Catholic Church is the ONE TRUE CHURCH founded by Jesus Christ. Ignore embittered former Catholics appearing on a Protestant TV Channel like the Swaggart Ministries. Remember Swaggart Ministries is of human origin. The Catholic Chuch is the ONE TRUE CHURCH founded by Jesus Christ.

Apparition to Mirjana at Medjugorje-May 2, 2015

Our Lady's Message to Mirjana

"Dear children. Open your hearts and try to feel how much I love you and how much I desire for you to love my Son. I desire for you to come to know Him all the better, because it is impossible to know Him and not to love Him - because He is love. I, my children, know you. I know your pain and suffering because I lived through them. I laugh with you in your joy and I cry with you in your pain. I will never leave you. I will always speak to you with motherly tenderness.
And I, as a mother, need your open hearts to spread the love of my Son with wisdom and simplicity. I need you to be open and sensitive to the good and mercy. I need you to be united with my Son, because I desire for you to be happy and to help me to bring happiness to all of my children. My apostles, I need you to show everyone the truth of God, so that my heart, which suffered and today suffers so much pain, can win in love. Pray for the holiness of your shepherds, so that in the name of my Son they could work miracles, because holiness works miracles. Thank you."
