Well, the poll is up to decide for February which charity will get the money raised that month.
The choices are:
UN Refugee Agency
Ronald McDonald House Charities
Native American Rights Fund
Hats Off for Cancer
Of these Luke Society is the only Christian organization. It is a medical mission organization (St Luke, the Evangelist, was a doctor)You can vote for a charity by going here. Tibet Aid is winning currently. We should go the site and raise votes for the Luke Society. It would also help if you linked to the poll site on your blog and encouraged others to vote for Luke Society.
You can vote 2 or 3 times a day, but you have to wait about 8 hours. Your visit also generates ad revenue for charity.
Remember, vote early and vote often.

“Mass, it is the place where heaven and earth meet in heavenly worship fool! You can’t heavenly worship on your couch. The Spirit takes us up to Heaven to worship God in unity with the angels and saints. So, get off you butt, and ask the Spirit to prepare you and inspire you to go to mass. It is the Spirit that prepares us for the mystery of all time: it is unique, eternal, and both in and out of our world. It is a mystery fool! Stop trying to figure everything out, fool! Just get up and go! Jesus is waiting."

A Jesuit, a Dominican, and a Trappist were marooned on a desert island. They found a magic lamp, and after some discussion decided to rub it. Lo and behold, a genie appeared and offered them three wishes. They decided it was only fair that they could each have one wish. The Jesuit said he wanted to teach at the world's most famous university, and poof, he was gone! The Dominican wished to preach in the world's largest church, and poof, he was gone! Then the Trappist said, "Gee, I already got my wish!"
To fix the problem, a Franciscan was recruited since St Francis was known to be good with animals. The Franciscan coaxed the bats into boxes and released them far from the church. However, they returned the next night.
Next a Jesuit was brought to help. However, his solution was to bring a shotgun and open fire, so he was sent away before he could wreak his havoc on this beautiful church.
Finally, a parish priest was brought in to help. He catechized the bats and then they were all baptized. The bats have not been seen since.

"Because of this, God greatly exalted him and bestowed on him the name 7 that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bend, 8 of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, 9 to the glory of God the Father."--Phillipians 2:9-11
In honor of the feast I will post the Divine Praises:
May the heart of Jesus, in the Most Blessed Sacrament, be praised, adored, and loved with grateful affection, at every moment, in all the tabernacles of the world, even to the end of time. Amen.
The Canons Regular of Jesus the Lord are working in Russia's Far East to support and build up the Catholic Church there. So far there are only three of them and they receive no support from the Office of the Propagation of the Faith since Russia is not considered mission territory, in deference to the Russian Orthodox Church.
One of their major goals is to restore the cathedral in Vladivostok. After 65 years under Soviet control as a state archives, it needs work restore it to the beautiful house of God that it once was and can be again.
They depend upon donations from the faithful since Russia is not considering mission territory.
Donations page is here.
