At this point Any pope who would stand up for our Catholic Tradition and had no problem living and defending it, would be in danger...he'd be made to be silent.. One way or the other. As he'd have such a powerful force doing whatever it took to overtake him. The enemy is strong and many.
Only God can and will restore the Church to its traditional beauty. IMHO, no pope would be able to survive his papacy if the SSPX were to be 'regularized' (or tried to be). One doesn't need to go to Rome to learn this, isn't there enough evidence and proof from what we Catholics have had and still endure from so many faithless priests, bishops and cardinals?
I hope Bishop Fellay truly listens to the Holy Ghost...that his prayer life can be in communion with God for the bishop's understanding … [More]
Why they give this hateful Muslim air-time is beyond comprehension. @ Gregory..."Islamphobia"? What pretend world do you live in? Beheading, cutting children in half, killing christians if they don't convert, burning and spitting on the American Flag in our own country! Try doing that over there. Sit down with the parents whose sons were beheaded. Haven't you learned anything from history? Have you no clue as to why they are migrating to all countries in rapid numbers? Its people who say such … [More]
Where do we see leaders of countries condemning the persecution of Christians? The Kenyan in the White House could care less. The press and media are hardly covering these atrocities. The Jews could care less, .. In the mean time...Catholic churches are being torn down or sold (even to Muslims). And mosques continue to sprout up everywhere in an alarming rate.
St. Bernard of Clairvaux's critique of the Jews is the same as the Church's position, reiterated since Augustine and codified by Pope Gregory the Great in Sicut Judaeis non. Jews, according to Catholic teaching, are carnal and blind. Not even the wonders Jesus performed could overcome their blindness.
"Not the flight of demons, nor the obedience of the elements, nor life restored to the dead, was able to expel from their minds that bestial stupidity, and more than bestial, … [More]
When has the Blessed Mother EVER told anyone that her "real" birthday is in August (5th) . We, as Catholics Know that to be FALSE. The Church has always held Sept. 8th as her birthday.. As well as Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerick and Venerable Mary of Agreda, which has been pointed out before on this site and others. Just that alone should be enough to realize there's a big problem.
Wonderful..we must pray for holy priests! For holy vocations! Suggestion: in the front vestibule of our church they have a basket full of ladies veils/chapel veils in case any ladies would prefer to cover their heads out of respect for the Holy Mass. Respect for God's house. I think it would be a good idea for other churches to think about doing this.
