Second, no one holds monopoly as to what the Word of God truly is about. No one. Centuries of history have revealed to us that the Church has made mistakes. Popes have made mistakes. And big ones, too."?
Even heathens should be granted the benefit of hindsight. Given the evidence of the twentieth century it's stupid at best to be a communist.
The Catholic Church holds a "monopoly" by virtue of Her Founder. The Church is the pillar … [More]
With the mindset of a protestant muuno has decided that she is wiser than Holy Mother Church herself.
Your mind has been polluted by the leftist propaganda that permeates our diseased culture.
Make an honest attempt at understanding Church teaching on the matter (your understanding now is deeply flawed). Lose your anger and bitterness first. Then pray for understanding before you start to seek that understanding.
Then contact a good, orthodox Catholic priest and ask to speak with him about … [More]
Holy Cannoli I thought the same thing when I watched this video. If he's ambushed coming out of an office building or something it's difficult to get out of it without appearing evasive. It's possible, but difficult.
This administration is an embarassment to the USA and an assault to the great people of Poland and the rest of the God fearing world. Using taxpayer money and US might to export the liberal "progressive" agenda is despicable. May God forgive us.
Simple but Orthodox Catholic, modernism is what is happening to the Church. It was spelled out brilliantly in warning by Pope St. Piux X in his Pascendi Dominici Gregis. But too many amongst us consider themselves too educated and intelligent to heed the wisdom of Popes who died before 1960. They are too old to be relevant to "modern man," after all. So they should be ignored. Unless, of course, you are uneducated and unintelligent.
Does the west, particularly the US, still have the fortitude to stand up to these godless tyrants? The greatest generation spent their lives opposing communism because they had the strength of moral certitude and knew it was their duty to oppose and defeat. The sickness of relativism has eroded that certitude.
Now, instead of strongly opposing communism in China, we curry favor with them so our weakling political class can prop up their destined to fail welfare state in order to stay in power. … [More]
This is definitely an issue that needs to be addressed in the vast majority of parishes in the US. And for the guys, lose the shorts, tshirts and flip flops. Put on some slacks, dress shoes and at the very least a collared shirt, but better with a tie and jacket. Dress like a man, not like a little boy going to a picnic.
I agree with PackieJoe. Who ever said ministering Christ's Church militant would be easy? After all, Cardinals wear the red as a symbol that they are prepared to be martyrs for the faith. Christ Himself was executed.
Talks is cheap. Let's please restore what was destroyed by the leftist/modernist/liberal/progressives and let the chips fall where they may.
The Lord does not like timidity, or 'lukewarm'.
Restoration of Holy Mother Church will require much suffering. Much like the redemption of … [More]
One of the consequences of the utter confusion in the world and in the Church that finds Herself in the throes of modernism is that stating something so simple and so obvious as this is always viewed as radical.
We pretend to be the most "enlightened, advanced and educated" people to have ever existed. And yet women deliver innocent children, struggling to survive a murder attempt while in the womb, into a fixture built for excrement. They are allowed to die, alone without comfort or compassion, in a toilet, when only moments before they were comfortably warm in their mother's womb as a baby should be.
That is the law of the land and that makes us barbarians.
Holyrope the KDM are very new (established in 2006 in the diocese of Madison, Wisconsin) so it's likely a chapter doesn't yet exist in your diocese. They are looking to expand nationally and I wish them much success. They do have extensive "how to" materials and instructions on opening a chapter in your diocese. I encourage all interested men to give it a look and the website is a great place to begin.
No insurance sales, no fancy uniforms and feathered caps, but "an organization calling … [More]
I formerly renounced my 3rd degree knighthood about a year and a half ago.
I remember once a lady who worked with the local crisis pregnancy center wanted to come to one of our meetings and give us a talk. I asked the "Grand Knight" on her behalf and got the blank stare. He was afraid she might ask us to forego another beer blast and actually do something worthwhile.
He put me off for FOUR months because we had a banquet to plan, and Mardi Gras … [More]
