Yes. Men need to do what needs to be done, when it needs to be done. Traditionally, this is called the virtue of “liberality,” and is in very short supply today, indeed.

From P**n Worker to the Catholic Church: The In-Depth Conversion Story of the Woman Who Quit Sex Work

Good for her. I hope she gets out of the limelight after this article, and focuses on growing in holiness, and making nice sets of rosary beads. She sounds pretty sincere, but temptation is always lurking.

Dignitas Infinita: Lowering the Bar

“What is good, isn’t new, and what’s new, isn’t good.” It’s the same story for pretty much every document for the past 60 years.

The Habsburg Way: Jacob Rees-Mogg meets Eduard Von Habsburg of Austria

He is a direct descendant of the 2nd to last emperor, Franz Joseph. Karl, I believe, was an uncle, several generations removed, and Prince Otto a cousin.

😡 Remember this?

I hope everyone does. And, if anyone would be inclined to go back to masking ever again, please think about what doctors did once mask mandates in hospitals went away: They took the darn things off. If they believed they had any value, they would not only continue wearing them, but would apologize for not promoting the great public health miracle that face diapers represent.

Bergoglian Confusion: Pope Against Pope

Even John Paul II’s stance is problematic, because it seems to reject that punishment for crime is an end, in and of itself, in the realm of criminal justice. That a man is capable of sinning in such a way that his mortal life is forfeit speaks to his great (though, certainly not infinite) dignity.

The death penalty would be a very dignified punishment for the perpetrator.

Tucho's Embarrassing Presentation of Dignitas Infinita

I agree. “Sins that cry to heaven for vengeance” is much clearer than “intrinsically disordered.”

Sources indicate Pope may have restored the Papal title, Patriarch of the West

They are going to use the occasion of the 17th centenary of the Council of Nicea as an excuse for the West to re-adopt Julian Easter. It’s going to be discussed, at least.

CDC discloses 780,000 new reports of serious side effects after COVID-19 vaccination - LifeSite

Was it the moral theologians who got the NHRA to shorten races from the classic quarter mile to just 1000 feet? But, seriously, your points about Trump, as well as anyone in the Church trying to convince anyone that there was anything good about the shots are spot on.

WATCH: Sexual Abuse Allegations Against Former Cleveland High School Chaplain Deemed Credible

@Abbé Jean-Marie du Divin Coeur de Jésus I am pretty sure that the Redemptorists were not unique in the way they dealt with abuse. I think it was in the book Goodbye, Good Men, which exposed a great deal about St. John’s Seminary in Boston, that there was a story about a seminarian who was given sodomite materials by another seminarian. When he brought it to the dean’s attention, the dean told …More
@Abbé Jean-Marie du Divin Coeur de Jésus I am pretty sure that the Redemptorists were not unique in the way they dealt with abuse. I think it was in the book Goodbye, Good Men, which exposed a great deal about St. John’s Seminary in Boston, that there was a story about a seminarian who was given sodomite materials by another seminarian. When he brought it to the dean’s attention, the dean told him that maybe he should get into it. When Church authorities, at every level are untrustworthy, it is difficult to envision how order will be restored. The least that needs to happen is for chastity to reign amongst the clergy, but there is not the slightest effort being made to bring that about.

WATCH: Sexual Abuse Allegations Against Former Cleveland High School Chaplain Deemed Credible

The school has an endowment of around $100 million, so they are an easy target. But, it’s also not hard to believe that there could have been abuse by Jesuits at their boys’ high schools. Deeming an allegation “credible” doesn’t mean it’s true, but, sadly, it is most often enough to ruin a priest’s life. At least this priest has already been judged by the Just Judge.

Anyone he represents that ends up being convicted will have been wrongfully convicted, due to incompetent counsel. But, it would take a courageous appellate judge to recognize the obvious.

"Curious"

Definitely. I just saw someone who is a sociopath try to argue that sociopaths should be designated as yet another “victim class.” It won’t be long until the only non-protected class will be Christians who are actual believers (as opposed to the Richard Dawkinses of the world, of which there are many).
