Spain: Benedictine Prior Warns Anti-Church Regime

That's why the cheese-steak sales dropped off dramatically in Philly, I suppose.

The last regret of a suicide

Gerontocracy: Francis Promotes Over-Aged Cardinal

Well, Chaucer wrote "Familiarity breeds contempt." Be careful when the curtain goes up Kenjiro M. Yoshimori and the voice says "Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain" (Wizard of Oz). There's worse lurks there than your 'buddy man' Bergolio I fear.

Traditionis Custodes: Rigid Francis Is Sowing Even More Wind

@Kenjiro M. Yoshimori "Do not be surprised, beloved, that this fiery ordeal should have befallen you, to test your quality; there is nothing strange in what is happening to you. Rather rejoice, when you share in some measure the sufferings of Christ; so joy will be yours, and triumph, when his glory is revealed.

@Kenjiro M. Yoshimori "Do not be surprised, beloved, that this fiery ordeal should have befallen you, to test your quality; there is nothing strange in what is happening to you. Rather rejoice, when you share in some measure the sufferings of Christ; so joy will be yours, and triumph, when his glory is revealed. Your lot will be a blessed one, if you are reproached for the name of Christ; it means that the virtue of God’s honour and glory and power, it means that his own Spirit, is resting upon you. Let it not be said that any of you underwent punishment for murder, or theft, or slander, or infringing other men’s rights; but, if a man is punished for being a Christian, he has no need to be ashamed of it; let him bear that name, and give glory to God.

The time is ripe for judgement to begin, and to begin with God’s own household; and if our turn comes first, what will be its issue for those who refuse credence to God’s message? If the just man wins salvation only with difficulty, what will be the plight of the godless, of the sinner? Why then, let those who suffer in fulfillment of God’s will commend their souls, all innocent, into his hands; he created them, and he will not fail them." 1 Peter 4:12 - 19

RORATE CÆLI

Marcial Marciel was liked by John Paul II. I give him the benefit of the doubt too but he strikes me as a weak man, timorous and waffling.

RORATE CÆLI

@Dante Alighieri In my profession it was my experience that people who predicated their testimony with the unsolicited assertion that 'I will tell you nothing but the truth' usually were not.

Was John Paul II under demonic influence? - Many will see the title to this post and assume that it’s …

@God Is Everything I agree with your take on this snippet of film. (Then) Pope John Paul II was playing to the audience...a bit of teasing playfulness...he was, after all, a playwright amongst other things...he knew about audiences and venues...

Funeral Mass of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI on Thursday, January 5

Joe Biden's reaction to Benedict's death and whether he will attend the funeral is... well, interesting

@aderito I'm glad he's not going because he'd probably be given Communion like Pelosi had.

Francis Asks Prayers For "Very Sick" Benedict XVI

@Kenjiro M. Yoshimori Yep. Your mistaken. Catholics do take the Bible literally where the teaching found therein is clearly meant to be taken so.
Your opinion of Barnhardt, i.e. 'she's nuts', if followed to its logical conclusion, would be applicable to St. Paul as well (whose writings she quoted extensively).
