Hart said, “To find God is to find love.” Kissing Presley on film has its claim to fame, but what Hart did for her beliefs strikes me as her greatest accomplishment"

Jeff Minick wrote about truth meaning of success:

Born in 1938, Dolores Hart became a big-name actress by the late 1950s. In five years, she appeared in 10 films, including the hit movie “Where the Boys Are,” worked with leading men like Marlon Brando and Montgomery Clift, and was the first actress to kiss Elvis Presley on screen. She was engaged to be married, and her career in Hollywood seemed assured.

But in 1962, to the shock of Hollywood and the nation, Hart gave up her film career and her pending marriage; discarded her jewelry, fine clothing, and other worldly possessions; and entered the Abbey of Regina Laudis, a Benedictine monastery in Connecticut. There, Hart, now Mother Dolores Hart, has served the abbey and her God for more than 50 years.

How, we might ask, does such a woman, a rising Hollywood star turned nun, measure success and accomplishment? In a recent interview with Fox News, she said, “To find God is to find love.”

Kissing Presley on film has its claim to fame, but what Hart did for her beliefs strikes me as her greatest accomplishment.

Like Hart, how we measure our successes—and for that matter, our failures—is how we measure ourselves.][

Might Biden be a Liar & Predator like McCarrick?

September 15, 2020   Everyone knows that sexual predator ex-cardinal Theodore McCarrick is a liar. His whole life was a lie of betrayal of the most sacred vows he took and the violation of the moral tenets of the Catholic faith which he desecrated. Most people don't realize that part of this desecration of lies included lying for "gravely sinful" Democrats like Joe Biden. McCarrick protected Biden when then head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (later to be Pope Benedict XVI) wrote that bishops were not to admit to Communion politicians like "gravely sinful" Biden who supports the killing of unborn babies. McCarrick lied for politicians like Biden by ignoring the important parts of the Ratzinger letter and told bishops not to ignore the Catholic Church law.  Last year, Fr. Robert Morey denied Holy Communion to the “gravely sinful” Biden following a "2004 decree signed jointly by the bishops of
