Page 14 POST-GAZETTE, MARCH 15, 2013 * Saint Louise De Marillac of the Blessed Virgin Mary, attending Mass, receiving Holy Communion, medita- tion, spiritual reading, fast- ing, penance, reciting the rosary and special prayers. Still, Louise managed to find time to maintain her house- hold. entertain guests and nurture Michel, her thir- teen-year-old son, with spe- cial needs. Throughout all this activity, Louise realized she needed spiritual guid- ance. This was to come from her friendship with Vincent de Paul; it was about the year 1625. Over the next four years, Vincent and Louise communicated often through letters, Vincent helped guide Louise to greater balance in a life of moderation, peace and calm. In 1629, Vincent invited Louise to get in- volved in his work with the Confraternities of Charity. Her intuition led her to un- derstand that it was time to intensify her ministry with the poor and needy per- sons;-while still maintain- ing a dee spiritual life. Louise, at age forty-two, com- municated her aspiration to Saint Vincent. By the end of 1633, he too had received the guidance needed for them to bring the Daughters of Charity into existence, dedicated to the corporal and spiritual service of the poor. At first they served the needs of the sick and poor in their homes. In time their work became well known and the Daughters were in- vited to Angers to take over management of the nursing services of the hospital there. This was the first ministry outside of Paris. Louise in- stituted collaboration among the doctors, nurses and oth- ers to form a comprehensive team. This model was highly successful and is still in use today by the Daughters of Charity. Under the guidance of Louise de Marillac, the Daughters expanded their scope of service to include orphanages, institutions for the elderly and mentally ill, prisons, and the battlefield. The .Daughters of Charity were unlike the established religious communities at LEGAL NOTICE Commonwealth of Massachusetts The Trial Court Probate and Family Court Middlesex Division 208 Cambridge Street East Cambridge, MA 02141 (617) 768-5800 Docket No. MI13P0390EA Estate of NICHOLAS KARRAS Date of Death October 25, 2012 INFORMAL PROBATE PUBLICATION NOTICE To all persons interested in the above- captioned estate, by Petition of Petitioner John Karras of Arlington, MA.

Frat Brothers Fight for Change A recent Boston Herald story on Emerson College sopho- more Donnie Collins whose insurance company recently denied him coverage for a gender transition surgery. The story highlighted how his college fraternity Phi Alpha Tau banded together and brought all kinds of stereo- types by helping Donnie raise the money and the money is coming in. Who would have thought that a college frater- nity would be helping Donnie born a girl to get his gender surgery? It would be almost like seeing Archie Bunker after Edith passed away mar- rying a black woman. I found this a positive story but also thought had Donnie just married a spouse and killed her, he could get the Department of Corrections to pay for the whole surgery without needing to raise a dime. File this story Band of Brothers. Can't Dictate to the World Says Hagel Our new U.S. Defense Sec- retary Chuck Hagel prom- ises to renew old U.S. alli- ances and forge new ones without attempting to "dic- tate to the world." When was the last time we could dic- tate to the world? We get in- sulted all the time from our Iraqi and Afghan allies. Hagel was a Vietnam veteran and should know better than to make such a silly sound- bite. Let's hope he will be better than I think he will be. Any Republican Obama nominates for any office know are warm and loving has to be held suspect. If it couples. They are not out to wasn't for Harry Reid's Demo- crats, he wouldn't have been confirmed. Conservative Justices Rethinking Voting Law Restrictions Conservative Supreme Court justices appear to be signaling doubts about the ongoing validity of a key part of the 1965 Voting Rights Act which would end a century of attempts by many Southern states to block blacks from voting. During fractious oral arguments, the nine justices have agreed to consider the claims made by Shelby County that Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act was no longer necessary five de- cades later. This county in the Deep South has longed chafed at Section 5 as un- necessary. Liberals are still fighting the Civil War today; I guess enough of them haven't seen Lincoln the movie yet. We are the United States of America and we are 50 states deserving the same equal treatment un- der the law. Maybe it is Time to Dump DOMA Back in 1996 Democrats, liberals and President Bill Clinton supported the Fed- eral Defense of Marriage Act that barred gays from getting married. Nowadays as more states legalize same-sex marriage, they are being joined by many businesses right here in Massachusetts like State Street and East- ern Bank who have urged the U.S. Supreme Court to strike down DOMA. It is a sure bet that the Supremes will probably nullify the 1996 laws and we will just have to move on without making a scene. Personally, I have known many gay couples who have married and as far as I am concerned, it is no big deal. These people that I make a political statement. Live and let live, I say. Is Bratton Ready to NIqPD Blue Again? A news report stated that a former NYPD commis- sioner years ago by the fa- miliar name of Billy Bratton would consider a return to the Big Apple and has met with several candidates for mayor. Bratton said, "I'd be lying if I said it would not be of interest." Bratton, 65, was commissioner from 1994 to 1996 under Mayor Rudy Guil- iani. Bratton has also been Boston police commissioner before going to New York. He became chief of police in Los Angeles in 2002. He also was named police chief of the Boston University Police and was heralded for turning that school's public safety office into a full-fledged urban col- lege police department. He is currently consulting with the Oakland Police De- partment and also in De- troit. He also has his own security consulting company. Should Dollar Tree Success be a Surprise in this Economy? I love the Dollar Tree Store where everything is actually a dollar. Business is boom- ing across the country in the company's 4,671 stores. My favorite is over behind Suffolk Downs on the East Boston/Revere line. It seems to be benefitting from recent payroll tax hikes and the sluggish economy. Consum- ers are cash strapped and these cut-rate stores are doing well. Dollar Tree is leading the pack but Family Dollar and Five Below are also doing pretty well too. Bigger names like JC Penney, Walmart and Target aren't doing that bad but are feeling the soft economy as shoppers are getting used to being bargain hunters again. Editorial (Continued from In 1775 we started a Revo- lution to kick out a king who thought Americans did not need due process and that he was all-powerful. Following that Revolution, we created a government with a Consti- tution to protect the peoples' rights. The Constitution and the Bill of Rights ensure our liberties are guaranteed from any future despot trying to mimic King George Ill. The United States of America was created to give people limited government and individual liberties that cannot be taken away by anyone. I have to admit when I think of U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-KY, or his father U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, some- times I think' tin foil but not at this time. Rand Paul elo- quently stated, "No Ameri- can should ever be killed in their house without a war- rant and some kind of ag- gressive behavior by them. I will not sit quietly and let (Obama) shred the Constitu- tion. No person will be de- prived of life, liberty or prop- erty without due process." Wasn't Obama among Page 3) those who argued that hold- ing prisoners of war in Guantanamo violated United States law? Didn't he push for civil trials for enemy combatants? Remember how 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed almost ended up in a Manhattan court room before Washing- ton came to its senses? The recent letter from Eric Holder quoted above seems to show that the mass murderer of 3,000 innocent people at the World Trade Center has more rights than all of us. There's lots of hypocrisy going on here among the Liberal Establishment. The Constitution should never be seen as an impediment to the power hungry. Kudos to Paul and also to U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, for stand- ing up for the Constitution and the right not to be taken out by their own government without due process and the law. why are so many Demo- crats up on Capitol Hill silent on this issue of drone strikes and the right to take out Americans on U.S. soil be- cause one person (Obama) deems them enemies of the state? Back when water- boarding was the hot topic, Democrats were all over end- ing such torture, what gives here? We seem to also have an imperial presidency. We are supposed to be a demo- cratic republic but questions of drones being used right here doesn't sound very American to many today. America is changing and I wonder what our founding fathers would be saying today if they were here experienc- ing what we are experienc- ing. I can hear Ben Franklin now saying, "We dumped King George for this?" Or maybe, James Madison add- ing in, "Don't let anyone edit the Bill of Rights." Limited government means just that, limited. Our voices and votes in Congress bet- ter get their act together. Protect the Constitution. Serve the people. As some- one said some 60 years ago following World War II, "Gov- ernment is our business. It will be as good as we want it and as bad as we allow it." Don't allow it!
