Tragic: Unquestionably some priest are not called by God! They force their way into a sheepfold and are too weak for the duties of the priesthood. Our Lord compares such persons to thieves (John 10).
The Church is all Holy through Mary; Pray the Rosary every day.

Christ invites us to receive Holy Communion (John 6:54), and the Saints have always advocated frequent communion, and it has been urged on the faithful repeatedly by the Holy See; yet we must only approach the Holy Eucharist with a clean heart and soul and in a state of Grace. All that is absolutely required for the worthy reception of Holy Communion is to be in a state of Grace.
The politician or person, conscious of his sins, thinking he will be esteemed upon receiving Communion, only incurs … [More]

It is a mistake for the Black Hermits to suppose, owing to Brother Damon Kelly's shocking rudeness, that they could perform this task of protesting abortion in such a careless manner. One can be quite willing to admit to the merits of protesting abortion, yet even that must be done thoughtfully and prayerfully with genuine zeal to God. Brother Kelly’s labor presupposes labor of another kind, that of the disobedient and proud; and for that reason he labors in vain, he fails utterly to touch … [More]

The Black Hermits are not making a good or useful example in their diocese; being arrested 10 times would not lead others to frequent the sacraments, to pray, or to take part in any religious exercises. By their behavior they seem to be living more in the world than in prayer; upon a little reflection this should be apparent to all. The Bishop is trying to keep a high standard of faith and morals in the diocese and the Black Hermits are the reason and cause for religious decadence. Rarely are … [More]

It sounds as if someone has not been playing well with the authorities and has been practicing disobedience. In the fourth commandment of God we should honor our parents; and by that commandment it is our duty to have the same regard for our ecclesiastical and secular authorities.
One of the Black Hermits, Brother Damon Kelly, has been arrested 10 times; which fully proves that he is not fulfilling the commands of his secular superiors; perhaps, in like manner, Brother Damon Kelly did not … [More]

The judgment of particular individuals is left to the God Who searches hearts (Ps. 7:10). The Church makes no declaration as to who is saved, but states only what is necessary for salvation. The Catholic Church is the true way to salvation; in that way it differs and is distinct from heretical churches, which have a roundabout way. St. Peter said: “In every nation he that feareth God and worketh justice is acceptable to Him” (Acts 10:35).
Do not be deceived; there are only two roads: one leads … [More]

The Catholic Church and the Catholic have always been hated and under persecution. During the first three centuries of the Church there were ten persecutions. We remain hated and persecuted today; by the world, by Islam, Heretics, Protestants, and by those dividing our Lord's fold calling themselves traditional Catholics, Liberal Catholics, and Neo Catholics. Yet, the Catholic Church is indestructible; for Christ said: “The gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matt. 15:18).

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the head of the Democratic National Committee, fully proves her great aversion for the life of the innocent unborn child. The mere thought that she has that “killing a 7-pound baby is not only okay, it is an expression of personal liberty;” also fully proves that she is under the yoke of the father of lies; she steadfastly serves him and easily deceives many for him. Who else could be so foolish as to exert herself to think so sinful?

Only the fool says in his heart: there is no God (Ps.13:1). Richard Dawkins bold talk means very little; God will take atheist at their word one day and will show Himself no loving God for them.
Our Lord says that “seeing they perceive not, and hearing they do not understand” (Mark 4:12).

On Holy Thursday evening Christ Our Lord washed the feet of His apostles to teach us humility; and since the time of Gregory the Great, the Pope has kept the practice of washing the feet of twelve priest; the bishops washing the feet of twelve men.

The devil seems to have gained special powers over so many Islamic men; maybe over Islam. The devil here shows how feeble he is, using a crowd to violently assault and attack a helpless, innocent woman. Yet, the devil has no power over this woman’s soul; great protection will be afforded to her soul by almighty God, for she endured great violence from the devil. It is troubling to see these occurrences taking place so often, as if the devil has an obsession with Islamic men and even Islam; and … [More]

The whole of the Mass is a sacrifice, not an instruction for the people. The Church should be explaining the mysteries and ceremonies of the Mass from the pulpit more frequently, teaching the Catechism, and explaining the Catholic religion. But as a matter of fact, the priests have not, and might as well be speaking Latin from the pulpit, for the people are living in ignorance of the Catholic faith. The use of Latin does not prevent this ignorance but it does add to the element of mystery; it … [More]

Lindsaywtf, Thank you once more, any right minded Catholic can easily and clearly understand Ivereigh's account, yet it takes great pains for those of a schismatic mentality and for those who cannot overcome themselves through confession to accept truth and they will only be indulgent to error; only the unfathomable mercy of God can free them.

Gregory         17/01/2015 20:27
What exertions these spiritual prisoners make to attack the Head of the Church; they are ever so indulgent to tell lies, tell half-truths, and to ridicule the Vicar of Christ, Pope Francis. Surely they are not of the Kingdom of God and only the unfathomable mercy of God can free them.

Lindsaywtf, I cannot say enough in praise of your excellent and wise discourse on this Catholic forum and to see how steadfastly you are inclined to the defense of the Holy Father, the Church, and Truth; doing so in a manner that fully proves your faith is practiced and keen. Experience here proves that some Catholic’s put Protestants to shame when it comes to ridiculing the Holy Father; it is great to see truth always effectually suppress their terrible vice and their aversion to the Holy … [More]

Honored and proud to see so many dignified world leaders joined in such extraordinary unity after the acts of terror in France; and ashamed of American Leaders, the Obama administration, for their careless and poor reception to the people of France; giving way to excuses, and following their own inclination, waiting for a favorable political wind to blow. The American people expect more and require more of our Leaders and deeply regret that they failed to act with promptitude and influence to … [More]

BrAlexisBugnolo, Shouldn’t you be taking the example of the Saints; for no Saint ever acted cowardly or held such contempt for the Holy Father; not only that, but there is really no example worse or more wicked than a bad religious. A cursory review of your writings reflect clearly the repute you hold for the Holy Father, Pope Francis. Even in the secular world one would be held severely liable for undermining the authority of his superior; your writings are an act of injustice to the Holy … [More]

St. Gregory the Great says, “the Magi returned to their homes by another way, to show us that if we wish to reach our true home in paradise we must forsake the path in which we have walked, and tread in the way of penance, obedience, and self denial.”
Gregory         24/12/2014 19:37
The three Wise Men would have never found Christ if they had not been led by the star of Bethlehem (Matt.2:9). The Magi offered the new born Child, Jesus, presents. Gold, the symbol of homage, is offered to Him as King; incense, the symbol of prayer, because He is God; and myrrh, the symbol of mortification, because as Our Redeemer, He was to suffer.

St. Augustine says, A great Physician came down from heaven to heal a great disease on earth; He healed in a way hitherto unheard of, for He took our ills on Himself. St. Jerome says, He is born in a stable, because the earth in comparison of heaven is but a stable.

O my Lady, Blessed Virgin Mary, all Holy and full of grace, I call to you, hasten to help me, remember me and pray for me, deliver my prayers and my many needs, leave them at the feet of your Son, my Lord, Jesus Christ; and thank Him as I thank you, with all my heart and soul; saying, “Jesus I trust in You.” Amen
Gregory         18/12/2014 10:10
Dear Rev. Father Reto, Thank you very much, through the intercession of the most blessed Immaculate Virgin, may the good example you make as a Priest serve to strengthen the faith and may your Preaching and the praiseworthy undertakings of be rendered fruitful too!
Gregory         10/12/2014 17:49
BrAlexisBubnolo, I remain troubled by your writings and taken as a whole they are far from being irreproachable; you are religious and the Pope is your Bishop; and you admit to having “speculated” about the narrative; you will have to do better than to relate a speculative narrative to proof; as a reporter you have a higher standard than that, and as a religious you must adhere to even higher standards, and since it is the Pope who is harmed by your writings, you cannot err; bring plenty of … [More]
Gregory         09/12/2014 23:36
BrAlexisBugnolo, I am inexpressibly unimpressed by your opine; clearly, you are no canonist. Your flagellation of the Pope seems to be nothing more than your tendency to undermine the Papacy. Being religious, you should be treating all with equal kindness, especially your superior, Pope Francis? He is your Bishop if you study Sacred Theology in Rome; and you do so at the Popes allowance. Even in the secular world when one tries to undermine his superior he can expect a severe judgment. Even … [More]
Gregory         09/12/2014 00:17
It is quite wrong and incompatible for anyone to celebrate Holy Mass, where all present pray for Pope Francis, invoking the intercession of the Mother of God, of the apostles and holy martyrs and yet incite others to “RESIST” the Pope once he departs Holy Mass. Surely, one only brings pain and sin upon himself and only more fully proves his unwillingness to resign himself to the will of Christ.
In Domino

Thank you very much for this interview! It is a pleasure to see such strong faith and to hear from this most worthy shepard of the Church. May God Bless

@BrAlexisBugnolo, Grace and Blessings, Nothing can take away from the dignity attaching to the office of the Vicar of Christ, not even ungodly articles that mock the Holy Father and the Church. Your article admits that there seems no way to prove the allegations it makes. Your judgment to publish it is disappointing, more secular, introducing more deception; yet, sadly, it is not unexpected. Religious should be taking a dogmatic approach to their faith; not a practical and non dogmatic approach. … [More]

@rhemes1582,Being Catholic I am under the obligation to defend the Church; and being the miserable sinner that I am, I cannot help but point out how superficial and pseudo your judgment remains. Just ask yourself, who is more blameworthy, UNWORTHY, for his calumny at the Vicar of Christ, or you, for lending your ear and being an advocate to his merciless, incessant attacks at the Holy Father. Your commentary and his commentary reflects the repute in which you hold Pope Francis.

@UNWORTHY, would not admonishment rather than praise be a more fitting expectation for @rhemes1582 if you were to place yourself in the presence of Christ, Our Lord. An isolated act would prove nothing, but your attacks at the Vicar of Christ prove to be habitual, permanent! It now rest with you and rhemes1582 to correct yourselves, and to see to it that the Eight Commandment of Christ and the respect due to the Vicar of Christ does not go neglected or that you do not carry it out superficiall… [More]
