MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski's Pathetic Lenten Promise

This morning (March 14, 2014) I happened to tune in to MSNBC’s“Morning Joe” show to hear co-anchor Mika Brzezinski tell her co-hosts that for her Lenten sacrifice she was watching MORE TELEVISION.  She explained that she was “giving up being unpopcultured” and “giving up being clueless” [about television entertainment] for Lent.

When she was met with baffled looks and a question for clarification from guest John Meacham trying hard to understand how a Catholic could justify more entertainment/television watching as a Lenten sacrifice she laughed and said it’s her “Polish Lent”.  
Yes, she said that.

Part of Brzezinski’s “get with the program” of no longer being entertainment tv clueless is to “binge watch” television shows like “Scandal” and “Revenge” for Lent with her daughters.

Morning Joe's Mika then put out a request to her Twitter followers to tweet her (@MorningMika) television show recommendations to add to her list of "binge" programs to watch this Lent.

It is any wonder why this heretical “Catholic” supports abortion, gay marriage and birth control when she ignorantly thinks binge watching television programs is a Lenten sacrifice?

Pray for "Catholics" like this who have zero knowledge of the Faith and zero ambition to learn the Faith.

Something for Mika Brzezinski to think about...(from EWTN)

Q: Why is giving up something for Lent such a salutary custom?
 A: By denying ourselves something we enjoy, we discipline our wills so that we are not slaves to our pleasures. Just as indulging the pleasure of eating leads to physical flabbiness and, if this is great enough, an inability to perform in physically demanding situations, indulging in pleasure in general leads to spiritual flabbiness and, if this is great enough, an inability to perform in spiritual demanding situations, we when the demands of morality require us to sacrifice something pleasurable (such as sex before marriage or not within the confines of marriage) or endure hardship (such as being scorned or persecuted for the faith). By disciplining the will to refuse pleasures when they are not sinful, a habit is developed which allows the will to refuse pleasures when they are sinful. There are few better ways to keep one's priorities straight than by periodically denying ourselves things of lesser priority to show us that they are not necessary and focus our attention on what is necessary.

In Christ,

    If ye love me, keep my commandments. -John 14:15
    True Sabbath is Friday sunset to Saturday sunset, RC changed the Sabbath day and admits it:

    “Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change (Saturday Sabbath to Sunday) was her act… And the act is a MARK of her ecclesiastical authority in religious things.” H.F. Thomas, Chancellor of Cardinal Gibbons. Nov. 11, 1895
    How important is to observe the Sabbath
    But as for you, speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘You shall surely observe My sabbaths; for this is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the LORD who sanctifies you.’Therefore you are to observe the sabbath, for it is holy to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people.…-Exodus 31:13, 31:14
    Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. Matthew 5:17
    WARNING:In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:

    9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;-Thessalonians 1:8-10

    Do you want to be citizen in hell?
