My Letter to a Committed Anti-Catholic

Satan is a liar and it is he who, quite often, might confuse our thoughts. Thus my initial decision, to give you no answer, may have been tainted by his urging: for he despises Truth and wants desperately that we not spread it. But Christian charity or love moved by Grace, should not allow me or anyone else to keep the Truth hidden, though it seems probable that you have no intention of listening to it: Continue Reading →

Mary, my Mother: Mother of the Church

How strange to think that man who is far estranged from our creator is instructed by our Lord to address the Creator God as Father or Abba (affectionate name like daddy). It is a revelation that was only hinted at in the Old Testament: Do you thus repay the Lord,     O foolish and senseless people? Is not he your father, who created you,     who made you and established you? __ Deuteronomy 32:6 But our Lord, Continue Reading →

The Voice of Peter

Most Rev. Fulton Sheen This article was specially written by Most Rev. Fulton Sheen, Bishop of Rochester for the English edition of L’Osservatore Romano. Christ and Peter Psychology reveals that the human body, when it reaches a certain growth, begins to be conscious of itself. A moment comes when the child no longer says: “Baby wants”… but “I want”. The Church as the Body of Christ revealed its heavenly consciousness when Christ complained to Paul Continue Reading →

THE REMNANT NEWSPAPER: Prophetic Words of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen

Many a modern preacher is far less concerned with preaching Christ and Him crucified than he is with his popularity with his congregation.  A want of intellectual backbone makes him straddle the ox of truth and the ass of nonsense…Fulton J. Sheen America, it is said, is suffering from intolerance.  It is not.  It is suffering from tolerance:  tolerance of right and wrong, truth and error, virtue and evil, Christ and chaos.  Our country is Continue Reading →

Spend a little time and a little cash at Hobby Lobby this Saturday

If you don’t live near a Hobby Lobby, you can still shop at their on-line site. Also, the family that owns Hobby Lobby also owns Mardels. Mardels is a Christian office supply/book-music-Bible/homeschooling supply store. I shopped at Mardels for curricula and supplies back when I was homeschooling. I’ve also bought several Bibles, as well as Christian gifts, cards and Christmas ornaments there. It’s a great store. You can find it online, if there’s not a Continue Reading →

RORATE CÆLI: This is the sign of the Church always, the Sign of Blood

This is the sign of the Church always, the Sign of Blood Seven years were my people without my presence; Seven years of misery and pain. Seven years a mendicant on foreign charity I lingered abroad: Seven years is no brevity. I shall not get those seven years back again. Never again, you must make no doubt, Shall the sea run between the shepherd and his fold. … It is not I who insult the Continue Reading →

Far As the Curse is Found | First Things

“No more let sins and sorrows grow, / Nor thorns infest the ground; / He comes to make His blessings flow / Far as the curse is found, / Far as the curse is found.”Like many other carols, this rarely sung verse of “Joy to the World” leads us into the profound mystery of the Christmas feast. In the little child whose birth we celebrate, we gaze on the face of our champion in a Continue Reading →

RORATE CÆLI: Christmas Octave: Devotion to the Child Jesus First part

The devotion to the Child Jesus Fr. Alban Cras, FSSP – Conference The devotion to the Child Jesus goes back to the very origins of Christianity. There are somewhat legendary depictions of the Child Jesus in the Apocryphal Gospels (cf. Infancy Gospel of Thomas, that presents a super-hero Child Jesus). We then see the Child Jesus appear notably to Saint Jerome, and also to Saint Catherine of Alexandria. In the Middle Ages, the entire world Continue Reading →

Today is Born a Savior. And here are some of His saving Gifts | Archdiocese of Washington

There is a Scripture reading proclaimed at the Christmas Liturgy that usually gets overlooked. And yet it should elicit considerable reflection since it is proclaimed at the Christmas Midnight Mass, one of the Church’s most prominent Liturgies. It is from the Letter to Titus in the Second Chapter. I would like to reproduce it in full and then give some commentary following. The grace of God has appeared, saving all and training us to reject Continue Reading →
