Modernist never are clear

Cardinal Siri's take on the contemporary theological movements of his time:

“the words flee, they continually slide, full of implications,
implications with different resonances each time, in a way which does
not allow any principle, notion or concept of fundamental, stable
meaning to remain….One finds himself as if before a sort of ontologic
allergy to every notion, word and feeling which evoke… More

Asperges Me Domine - Traditional Latin Mass Hymns

It's not right to be taking the sacred music and text of our rite and using it in a new agey sounding pastiche. It is not backdrop music that you are free to "remix". In fact you are not allowed to use sacred music outside of the context in which it is designated. It is music set aside, with its own particular place, for the worship on God. So, no taking sacred things outside their contexts … More

Putin braves icy water for traditional Epiphany dip

Did he cross himself like a Roman Catholic? The left shoulder show be the last point of contact should it not? Well fair dues to him he didn't even flinch. I bet Obama would be squeeling like a puppy. Trump of course would have ensured it was preheated - naturally! :-)

Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer, in 9th-Century Gregorian Chant

You should not profane the sacred musical form like this. It is offensive and disrespectful of holy things.

God's Doorkeeper: St. Andre of Montreal Trailer

hmmm . It would be nice to have better commentary. Up to :38 it was fine, after that it became very strange. Will look him up as I have not heard of him before though.

When and by whom the different protestant sects were founded

Lisi its the mode of the visual that I find weak. The visual presents a fracturing of the early church into two - one stable eastern orthodox fraction and one unstable Roman Catholic fraction. The Roman Catholic Fraction then spawns multiple schisms while disappearing itself from the time line. The truth is the first protestants were the eastern Orthodox and there were many fractures in her. The … More

Ireland's Tragic Abandonment of Catholic Teaching - Voice of the Family

The citizens assembly is not representative of the citizens of Ireland. I do not think it is right to spread the idea that their official position is some how representative of the citizens of this country.

The Confession (Best Short film of International Catholic Film Festival)

Deliberate lying is satanic and you cannot do evil that good may come of it. Also, the offense is primarly against God. Fake priest should realise at the moment of death the man would know the truth that he had in fact killed his father. He is condemend to live a lie by fake priest when he could live with the truth, done penance and learnt to accept Gods forgiveness. This movie is nothing short … More
