The Art of the 'Thank You' – Celebrating Goodness
By Rita Abro :: 99163 Views :: Health & Fitness, Living & Lifestyle, Religion & Spirituality

California, USA - Wise and thoughtful Chaldean parents continue to harp on their children to honor other people's kindness and generosity.  Most children despise having to write thank you notes.  Sadly, parents who fail to teach their children how to recognize and acknowledge the good they see in others will eventually have to contend with the consequences of a self-centered, ungrateful, and spoiled child.

Chaldean Greg Acho Lends a Nurturing Hand
By Evon Elias :: 120914 Views :: Health & Fitness, Religion & Spirituality, Business & Finance, Government & Society

California, USA - In the life of every being that walks this planet, there is a purpose that is to be fulfilled before their time here is complete. Whether it be carrying out a career that may change the lives of many, creating a family of his own and protecting them, or just living a life that is alive with faith, hope and love… every mission is unique. It is vital in life to have confidence in understanding that the value of every accomplishment and deed done, be it big or small, is still so very great. For it is in the words of the Blessed Mother Theresa who proclaimed that, “Little things are indeed little, but to be faithful in little things is a great thing.”

Over in The Golden State, better known as California, a great man by the name of Gregory Acho is believed to have found what so many seek: their calling in life. But this calling, this purpose he prays to fulfill successfully, is not for his own pleasure, but is for people in his community that he yearns to reach out to and help by leading them to an improved stage in their life.

Acho, 30, founder of Conscious Contact, Inc., a non-profit sober living organization (rehabilitation clinic) are helping Americans overcome the strenuous process of staying sober. Acho adds that it is not as simple as it sounds, just “staying sober” or fighting an addiction, but that it is “[much] deeper than that. We provide support for each person to look within themselves and make contact, Conscious Contact, with who and what they have always been.”

Reflections Upon A Chaldean Heart
By Evon Elias :: 48901 Views :: Religion & Spirituality

"From deep within a faithful church, a priest tells his loved ones to read a section of the Gospel of Matthew from the Holy Bible and reflect on it, bringing about words and emotions that then form into prayers.

With this reflection, I only hope and pray for it to touch the depths of your heart, because it came from the depths of mine. May it help you to realize who we are... what we are... and what He did.

It is in moments like these that changes take place, that the shape of the person's faith is molded into something new... something better.

With love to each and every one of you...

I wish that this brings you to a new level, makes you grow from someone you once were, to the person that you are meant to be.

God Bless."

Chaldeans React to World Youth Day
By Evon Elias :: 97391 Views :: Religion & Spirituality, Community & Culture, World News & Odds 'N' Ends

Michigan, USA – In the hours before dawn stirs, a “youth” of the world is waking up to say a prayer, only to see that every way he turns, on the cold ground with sleeping bags and blankets, scores of his own peers are wrapped up tightly and are entranced in a dream which has arisen in their minds. And as he quietly turns to face the church and kneel, he allows his fingers to softly intertwine, securing faith, hope and love between the smoothes of his palms. He then gently lifts his head to look upon the rock of his faith, and smiles as his heart says its prayer.

While many Catholic youths across the globe gather for events, prayers, and other such occasions in their towns, for five days every two to three years, the youthful believers of Catholicism make their way to one special spot in the world to unite with the Holy Father and other religious leaders. As Pope John Paul II stated in his letter to Cardinal Eduardo Francisco Pironio on the event of the seminar on World Youth Days organized in Czestochowa, a city in southern Poland, this is done “ to consolidate the ordinary youth ministry by offering new encouragement for commitment, objectives which foster ever greater involvement and participation.”

By Evon Elias :: 127 Views :: Career & Education, Religion & Spirituality, Community & Culture

Michigan, USA - With a desire to leave a world with constant haste and alacrity and unite to a life of passive ways and tranquility, one of our very own members of the Chaldean community is answering the call of the Lord to be at His side throughout the years to come.
 
A new chapter is to begin in the life of teenage Michigan resident, Candice Kassab, who will not turn 18 until the 25th of February.  “She’s been having a calling for the past three years and one day she just felt it so deeply and said that it was eating away at her conscious, and just told us that she was going to give in and become a nun. We couldn’t believe it”, commented 21-year-old sister, Jennifer Kassab. However, despite the age, Candice is determined that as she walks this new path, her passionate and dedicated spirit will be accompanied by the strength of the Heavenly Father, His Son and the Holy Mother as well.

An Advent Poem

An Advent Poem

'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the town
there’s no hint of Jesus anywhere to be found.
 
The people were busy with Christmas time chores
like hanging of tinsel and shopping in stores.
 
No songs about mangers, "no crib for a bed."
The songs were of Santa all dressed-up in red.
 
Mom watched Martha Stewart, while dad consumed beer;
both of them hoping to get Christmas cheer.
 
When what from the T.V. glad tidings they hear?
A swinging bright choir, there’s a big sale at Sears.
 
So away to the mall they all flew in a flash...
Buying presents on credit - and others with cash

Fake ‘Catholic Voters Guide’ Created To Mislead Catholics From Church Teachings
By Sam Yousif :: 9 Views :: Religion & Spirituality, Government & Society

American Catholics are stunned that the Democratic Party would stoop so low as to purposely mislead and manipulate Catholics about their faith and sacred teachings.    The fake 'Catholic Voters Guide' Published by Former Aide to John Kerry attempts to recapture the hemorrhaging of Catholic voters rejecting the Democratic Party. 

Chaldean Caucus member and former Democrat Wendy Jaberow, who became a Republican because of these sorts of underhanded and deceitful efforts, feels the Fake Catholic Voters Guide is another example of the shameful values the Democrats have embraced.  “They believe that ‘any means necessary’ is justifiable for them to gain power.  They have sold their souls to the devil.”

Marian High School in Michigan Defends Their Convictions
By Sam Yousif :: 26 Views :: Career & Education, Religion & Spirituality, Government & Society

Michigan, USA - Students, family members, teachers, employees, and alumni of Marian high school are outraged.  The all-girl private Catholic high school has come under attack by homosexual activists.  “The gay people, TV, and newspapers want us to do something wrong and we will not.  They talk too much about sex these people.  This is sick of them.  That is why I don’t want any of my children, nephews, nieces, or anyone I know to go to public school.  They want you to believe that the way you behave is okay if you can make others say it is okay,” says  Enam Bahoura, a Chaldean parent. 

The nationally-acclaimed Catholic high school with a large enrollment of Chaldeans finds themselves under target of the local papers for teaching their religious convictions.  Both the Detroit News and Detroit Free Press, owned by Gannett News ran what many in southeast Michigan feel are biased articles to promote the homosexual agenda.
