POSITRACTION: Cardinal Elia Angelo Dalla Costa cited

Catholic Cardinal Made ‘Righteous’ for Life-Saving Efforts in Holocaust
By Jspace Staff on 12/22/2012 at 12:36 PM

*** begin quote ***

An Italian Cardinal has been named Righteous Among the Nations, Yad Vashem’s highest honor for gentiles, for his efforts saving hundreds of Jews during the Holocaust.

Cardinal Elia Angelo Dalla Costa was part of an underground mission that evolved into a joint Jewish-Catholic network. Jews in Italy were being deported at an alarming rate, and Dalla Costa was an initial encourager of the two faiths working together in resistance.

Good works are ne’er forgotten?

Gerard J. DHuy

Before retiring in Tucson, Jerry DHuy lived in Bethlehem, PA. His father took a position with Bethlehem Steel Company when Jerry was five years old. He attended Sts.

This successful effort has provided ownership for almost 300 members, allowing the Club to thrive and create employment for its entire staff. He led the Alliance Group as Chairman of the Board for three years, and he was always grateful for the outstanding effort of the staff and management team.

JEMAIL: McEneney Edward J. (MC1959) spots a Jasper story — Burns, George W. [MC1966]

RE: George W. Burns class 1962 Captain of Basketball and Baseball teams at Manhattan College


There is a great article in “The Tablet” (, December 22, 2012 edition. It was written by Jim Mancari (

Another prime example of a dedicated and talented Jasper we never heard of. He was a walk on at Manhattan and ended up being the Captain of both the Basketball and Baseball teams.

In the tradition of St. John Baptist De LaSalle he defined his life teaching Math to high school and college students. By the way he is currently the varsity Basketball Coach at Manhasset H.S.
in Long Island. He also played ABA basketball for NY Nets under Lou Carnescca.

“The Tablet” The Catholic Perspective on News and Opinion from Brooklyn and Queens.

John, thank you for all you do to spread the word about great Jaspers we never heard of.

McClancy Teacher Played with Nets (with audio)
Posted on 19 December 2012.
Tags: aba, brooklyn nets, bruns, eastern league, george bruns, mcclancy hs, nets, new york nets, st augstine dhs
by Jim Mancari

*** begin quote ***

George Bruns was likely very good at keeping his own basketball statistics; he was a math teacher after all.
In an interesting turn of events, Bruns, who was teaching at Msgr. McClancy M.H.S., East Elmhurst, at the time, was signed in the spring of 1973 by the New York Nets of the American Basketball Association (ABA). He played in the final 13 regular season games that season and appeared in the playoffs.

“That was a surprising development that I ever got a chance to play,” said Bruns, now 66.

Robert J. Moran
AGE: 77 • Ocean Township

Robert J. Moran, 77, passed away on Monday, Dec. 31, 2012, at home in Ocean Township. He was born in Yonkers, NY, and lived in Oceanport for 30 years before moving to Ocean Township. Robert was a parishioner of St. Michael’s Roman Catholic Church in West End. Bob was larger than life to all those lucky to have known him; whether it was on the golf course at Old Orchard Country Club or enjoying summers at Peninsula House. People gravitated towards his joy of life, his sense of humor and his tremendous laugh. Bob was a 1956 graduate of Manhattan College and then graduated Naval OCS, Newport, RI, before serving on the USS Spiegel Grove as a Lieutenant JG. He spent his professional career as a senior executive of outdoor media at Foster & Kleiser Company, and then at 3M National Advertising until his retirement in 1996. He was also a founder of the Dinosaur Club, a fellowship of professionals from the golden age of NYC advertising. Bob was a lifelong Mets fan and season ticket holder of his beloved New York Giants for 53 years, happily watching one last win this past Sunday.

He is predeceased by his parents, John and Catherine (Whalen) Moran; his daughter, Cathleen; and his brother-in-law, J.J. Cunningham. Surviving is his loving wife of 52 years, Carol C. Moran of Ocean Township; his devoted children, son Tod Moran, daughter, Patti Moran, his son-in-law, Michael Elisha; his brother-in-law, Edward I. Cunningham; and his beloved granddaughter, Kate Elisha.

Visitation will be held from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 4, 2013 at the John E. Day Funeral Home, 85 Riverside Ave., Red Bank. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 5 at St. Michael’s, West End. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be sent in Robert’s memory to the Kate’s Foundation for Melanoma Awareness and Research at or via mail to 13 Eagle Nest Road, Colts Neck, NJ 07722.

Guilty as Charged
January 1, 2013

*** begin quote ***

One of the ways I’ll generate more content here is via Bishop Bill Love’s challenge for all of in the Episcopal Diocese of Albany to read the whole bible during 2013. My plan is to read a book each week, combining smaller ones to finish in 52 weeks. I’ll post my thoughts as I go with the hope that we can interact about the reading. I’m going to be using The ESV Study Bible (affiliate link) for this, and I invite you to come along.

Happy New Blog Beginning!

Pete Krupp Least we forget Broadway a/k/a Joe’s Pizza. Some great times were had there before and after the Greenleaf, Pinewood or Terminal. I didn’t distinguish between locals or student establishments. A cold adult beverage was a cold adult beverage no matter the source. 72 – 76.

FJohn Reinke For this injineer, the Greenleaf was a required rest stop after Theoology with Father Bruce. With my head filled with “dannny lew” and the ways to know God, Teilhard de Cardin saying science leads us to God, and being called a blundering barbarian from down the hill to tortue the Arts Department, I needed to wash away my sins. Argh! Times were so much simpler then. I didn’t patronize the Leaf when I was in High School, they checked proof; whereas the Terminal was content to over charge us for the ‘water of life’. Argh! So much simpler.

MOBIT: McGovern, Carolyn [MC????SPOUSE RIP]

Carolyn McGovern

McGovern, Carolyn

Carolyn McGovern, darling Wife, loving Mother, and adoring Grandmother, passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, Dec. 30, 2012. Her beauty, grace and love will always be remembered.

Carolyn is survived by Matt, her High School Sweetheart and loving husband of 51 years as well as three children and twelve grandchildren- Daughter Melissa, a Registered Nurse and mother of Aiden, Kieran, Shannon, Erin and Finnian, residing in Palos Verdes Estates, CA; her son, Matthew, an engineer and consultant, lives in Congers with his wife Kathleen and children Meaghan, Matthew and Kyle, and her youngest son, Scott, an Orthopedic Surgeon lives in Salisbury, MD with his wife Lauren and children Dylan, Benjamin, Justin and Zachary. Also surviving are Carolyns three sisters, Dorothy, Sally, and Patsy, and many nieces and nephews.

Carolyn was born to the late Martha and Frank Collins on Oct. 17 at Nyack Hospital. She attended Nyack High and was an excellent student. She was a cheerleader and musician. She quickly met Matt, Captain of the soccer team and they had many wonderful memories of those High School Days including “The Good Ole 47” Ford and, Matt, the Senior Class President, and his girl, Carolyn, at the Prom.

Following graduation, Carolyn worked for the Nyack School District while Matt commuted to Manhattan College to pursue a career in engineering and the USAF. After graduation, Matt was offered a position with General Electric that continued their journey outside of New York. Their first stop Dekalb, IL was short, just 3 weeks before the newly commissioned 2nd Lieutenant received his orders to report for duty, but Matt recalls that it was a long time after it was revealed that his devoted wife, Carolyn sat in the car outside the GE Plant each of day and watched over her husband and waited to take him home.

Their first stop with the Air Force was Minot, North Dakota, where they welcomed their newborn daughter, Melissa. Before returning to Rockland County, they had a second child Matthew. Later, Carolyns baby, the youngest of the three, Scott, was born at the same hospital as his Mom and Dad, and they set roots in Congers, NY to raise their family.

Carolyn worked for the Clarkstown School District for many years before retiring and tirelessly supported her three children spiritually, academically, and in athletics. Carolyn was known to be an active member of the PTA at Congers Elementary School, Class Mom, Team Mother, and Cheerleader.

Carolyn and Matt were active members at St. Pauls parish for over 45 years and served as Eucaristitic Minsters together. Carolyn was a member of the Parish prayer group. Carolyn and Matt taught Religious Education in their home to students of the Parish for many years. Carolyn and Matt also have many fond memories and friends from their involvement with Marriage Encounter.

Carolyn enjoyed extensive travel with her husband Matt and are thankful for the companionship and compassion of the their friends in the K.I.T. Club and West Nyack Seniors II. Carolyn was also very fond of all the wonderful neighbors, friends, and community that touched our lives.

Visiting Hours for beloved Carolyn McGovern are at Higgins Funeral Home, 321 South Main Street, New City, NY on Friday, Jan. 4, 2013 from 2 – 4pm and 7 to 9pm.

A Mass of The Christian Burial will be celebrated on Saturday, Jan. 5, 2013 at St. Pauls Catholic Church on Lake Road, Congers, NY at 11am followed by a burial at Gethsemane Cemetery Rockland Lake.

Our Family is deeply grateful for the care she received from Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, Nyack Hospital and Hospice Care of Rockland County.

Donations may be made to Dr. Mears Research for Lymphoma, Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, 161 Fort Washington Ave. Room 23 NY, NY 10032 in memory of Carolyn McGovern.

Caitlin Anne Martin is the thriving child of Martin, Margaret (MC1998) and neice of Finch, Bernadette Kelly (MC1995).

A new type of superstition has got hold of peoples minds, the worship of the state. People demand the exercise of the methods of coercion and compulsion, of violence and threat. Woe to anybody who does not bend his knee to the fashionable idols! — Ludwig von Mises, Omnipotent Government, p. 11

*** begin quote ***

Statolatry has become the principal form of worship in contemporary America. People erroneously talk about “separation of Church and State” when “the State” has replaced “the Church” as the idolatrous venue for worship. As the Church had its calendar of Holy Days of Obligation and sacraments, so too the State has its own sacred holidays, icons, protocols and rituals.

*** and ***

Each day in rote, millions of captive children in government schools recite the Pledge of Allegiance, their solemn oath to this sacred creed, without giving it cursory reflection or thought.

Thus is born a new generation of blind worshipers at the Golden Calf of Statism.

*** end quote ***

Interesting that no one sees the problem.

The Gooferment Skrules have done an excellent job of brainwashing the future Sheeple. Inserting the worship of Mother Earth and dependence upon Father State. From whom all good things flow. (Stolen from someone else!)

And, the Catholic Schools cooperated. And, the Catholic Church cooperated. And, Catholics cooperated.

The Church was always a counterbalance to the tyranny of the “King”. Somehow, someway, sometime — we lost that.

We need to recapture the disgust for this pagan way of life?

Or is it too late!
