  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

    Here is a recently completed painting of the Nativity that now hangs in Oakcrest School in school in Virginia. It is painted by Henry Wingate who is also based in Virginia. It is quite large, over 9 feet long and nearly 8 feet wide. Henry told me, “Those who commissioned the painting wanted it to be seen as Oakcrest’s Nativity, in that it would have signature aspects to it, such as the school uniform plaid that the girls wear. This I put in a not too obvious spot, in a basket behind the donkey. Two other signature pieces are a cardinal and the flowers of a Dogwood tree. These are both Virginia state items, the state bird and the state flower. I especially wanted to show the tender and close relationship between mother and child and also with St. Joseph. I used an actual cave near my studio as the background.”
