@James, not in this instance. Dad broke God's commandment against trespassing and destruction of property. Son dutifully turned his dad in as his civic duty. Dad knew full well there was a risk he might be filmed on security cameras or on somebody's phone. He took it anyway, and he got caught. If the family killed the son in retaliation, they could go to jail, and this grave mortal sin would pass down through the family tree to other members. There are spiritual consequences for that.

A kid turning dad in over not masking is a traitor to the family, yes. Family shunning of him and removal of monetary support of him are sufficient punishments.

The reading appointed from the Rule of St. Benedict for January 27:


CHAPTER VII
Of Humility (cont.)


Let him consider that he is always beheld from heaven by God, and that his actions are everywhere seen by the eye of the Divine Majesty, and are every hour reported to Him by His angels. This the prophet telleth us, when he sheweth how God is ever present in our thoughts, saying: “God searcheth the heart and the reins.” And again “The Lord knoweth the thoughts of men.” And he also saith: “Thou hast understood my thoughts afar off”; and “The thought of man shall confess to Thee.” In order, therefore, that he may be on his guard against evil thoughts, let the humble brother say ever in his heart: “Then shall I be unspotted before Him, if I shall have kept me from mine iniquity.”


Martyrology-January 28th
Roman Martyrology-January 28th-on this date in various years-


St. Peter Nolasco, confessor, who founded the Order of Our Lady of Ransom for the redemption of captives, and who fell asleep in the Lord on the 25th of December.


At Rome, the second feast of St. Agnes, virgin and martyr.


At Alexandria, the birthday of St. Cyril, bishop of that city, a most celebrated defender of the Catholic faith, who died in peace, with a great reputation for learning and sanctity. His feast, however, is kept on the ninth of February.


At Rome, St. Flavian, martyr, who suffered under Diocletian.


At Alexandria, the commemoration of many holy martyrs, who, while they were at Mass in the church on this day, were put to death in different ways by the followers of Syrianus, an Arian general.


At Appollonia, the holy martyrs Thrysus, Leucius, and Callinicus, who were made to undergo various torments in the time of Emperor Decius. Thyrsus and Callinicus were beheaded; Leucius, called by a heavenly voice, yielded his soul unto God.


In Thebais, the holy martyrs Leonides and his companions, who obtained the palm of martyrdom in the time of Diocletian.


At Saragossa in Spain, St. Valerius, bishop.


At Cuenca in Spain, the birthday of St. Julian, bishop, who, after bestowing the goods of the Church on the poor, like the apostles, supported himself by the work of his hands, and went to his God famous for his miracles.


In the monastery of Rheims in France, the death of the holy priest John, a devout man of God.


In Palestine, St. James, hermit, who hid himself a long time in a sepulchre in order to do penance for a fault he had committed, and, being celebrated for miracles, departed for heaven.


And elsewhere in divers places, many other holy martyrs, confessors, and holy virgins.
R. Thanks be to God.

The second choice is to become the Best Liturgical Snob you can be and criticize your own people.  The ones that actually live on your block. 

Believe a conniving Jesuit, full of the blarney, to let you in on the real story of Fatima.  After he worked for Cardinal Bea and B'nai B'rith to change the Catechism to read that the Jews were not responsible for killing Jesus Christ.  They failed in terms of the document, but the media dutifully reported that no Jews were involved in the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ. 


The Jews were not responsible for killing Jesus because Jesus wasn't killed at all. He was crucified by the Jews and the Romans.  They sinned in trying to kill Him, but He would not let them.  He allowed Himself to die at the moment He commended His spirit to the Father. 

The Church is very clear about how the Passion and Death of Christ are described.  Suffered, died and buried.  Not killed, not murdered, not deicided. 

Quote
Therefore doth the Father love me: because I lay down my life, that I may take it again. No man taketh it away from me: but I lay it down of myself, and I have power to lay it down: and I have power to take it up again.

Utilities, pipelines, and big staple (food) producers.  Energy stocks also.  There are a lot of LLP's which are partnerships that are traded also, e.g. Acme Pipeline Partners, Ace Fertilizer Partners.

Make sure they are profitable, and the dividend is smaller than the profit.  Quick test to make sure they are healthy.  I just use finance.yahoo.com to check on their profits and such.  After that, if you have a 401K or IRA, a lot of times the company running it has a stock research function for free.  So after you ID a few candidates, do a deeper dive with the free research reports you get.

Then you have to be patient.  You'll get one or two opportunities to buy each year.  You build up cash, and then when the market tanks, you buy the boring stocks and lock down a fat dividend check.  Rinse and repeat.

Consider this.  If you had done this during the last sell off, you could have spent $200,000, and end up with a $28,000 dividend check each year, likely for life.  And that will grow with inflation.

The reason this works is because as a small investor, you are nimble.  If you have your money parked in cash making 0.2% interest for 9 months, no one is screaming at you.  And when the market crashes, you don't have to bail to protect your $100 Billion fund, instead you can buy.

Also, DON'T select automatic dividend reinvestment.  You want the dividends to build up as cash so you can go shopping the next time stocks are on sale.

At this rate you'll no one to interact with.

Highly unlikely given the ongoing revolving door here. I started this thread. Keep up the tone, and I'll put you on ignore also.

@Ralfy, I don't have to prove anything to anyone. I don't have to prove anything to you. ***I answer to God alone*** for my prayers of conversion for my family members who strayed from the faith.

Let the other families answer to God for their own actions and opinions. Especially you.

Just got two in from the library: O'Connor's The Violent Bear it Away and Undset's Ida Elisabeth. But I need to finish this teaching application before I can crack them open.

I did not read all of the Fool's article so I am not sure if it congruent with your method, J. The ones they rate are certainly not boring. Where can we find the "boring" companies"?
