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 →

Ecclesia Semper Reformanda: Communion with the Church by Degrees of Fullness

A Lecture Addressed to the Theological Students’ Association of The Catholic University of America by Father Jay Scott Newman, J.C.L. Assistant Professor of Canon Law at The Pontifical College Josephinum 18 April 2001 In his De Praescriptione Haereticorum, Tertullian famously asked with derision, “What has Athens to do with Jerusalem?”, meaning “What has philosophy to do with theology?” I begin with this reminder because, although I am here to address the Theological Students’ Association, I 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 →

Papal Infallibility

Papal Infallibility was defined as a dogma of the Faith, in the year 1870, during the First Vatican Council.  While most people have heard of this dogma, few understand its true meaning and limitations.  It is not uncommon to find non-Catholics who believe the dogma extends to the moral actions of a pope, in such a way, that he is said to be incapable of sin (impeccability). Most Catholics realize that the scope of infallibility Continue Reading →

Catholic clerical “Gay Mafia” finally being exposed in media? | LifeSiteNews.com

BY STEVE JALSEVAC Fri Feb 22, 2013 22:43 EST Comments (31) The resignation of Pope Benedict is causing a series of large explosions along the way to the new conclave to replace the burnt-out reformer Pope. Some of us have been desperately waiting for many years for the power and influence of an extremely damaging homosexual mafia within the Catholic clergy to be exposed and dealt with. It appears this might finally be happening in a Continue Reading →

WITH THE POPE AGAINST THE HOMOHERESY

WITH THE POPE AGAINST THE HOMOHERESY – Original here. Fr. Dariusz Oko, Ph.D. For several weeks now Poland has witnessed a heated discussion on the “huge homosexual underground in the Church”, provoked by the most recent book by Fr. Tadeusz Isakowicz-Zaleski entitled Chodzi mi tylko o prawdę[1](Truth Is All That Matters). Some deny any such underground exists, and put forward theses profoundly inconsistent with the teaching of the Church, both being at odds with truth[2]. Continue Reading →

Bishop confirms National Catholic Reporter is not a ‘Catholic’ publication : News Headlines – Catholic Culture

Bishop Robert Finn of Kansas City, Missouri, has confirmed that the National Catholic Reporter should not advertise itself as a “Catholic” publication. In a column appearing in his diocesan newspaper, Bishop Finn notes that he, as the bishop of the diocese in which the Reporter is located, has the duty to “call the media to fidelity.” He cites the Code of Canon Law, which (in #1369) calls for “a just penalty” for anyone who “excites Continue Reading →

Barnhardt on Veils

OH, THERE’S MORE. LET’S TALK ABOUT VEILS. POSTED BY ANN BARNHARDT – JANUARY 21, AD 2013 9:10 PM MST As I have written about previously, there is NOTHING that will send a lesbian neo-pagan heretic witch nun into a full-on conniption fit as quickly and surely as a CHAPEL VEIL.Which is reason enough, right there, why EVERY woman should wear a veil whenever she is in the presence of Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.

Barnhardt on Why Priests Must Be Men

WHY PRIESTS MUST BE MEN PART 1 OF 3 POSTED BY ANN BARNHARDT – JANUARY 19, AD 2013 11:21 PM MST I was planning for this to be the last essay I ever wrote, and since we’re into “any day now” territory, and since I’ve had just about enough of these lesbian pagan witch nuns and their “female ordination” horse diarrhea, I’m dropping the bomb. And yes, it’s a bomb. I’ve delayed on writing this Continue Reading →

A Précis of the Catholic Teaching on Homosexuality and Homosexual Acts – Truth and Charity Forum

The Catholic Church’s teaching on homosexuality is one rooted in what philosophers call natural law, but also illuminated by divine revelation. This means that the Church understands her teaching to be grounded in those truths that unaided human reason can affirm about the nature and purpose of human sexuality, but that what God has revealed in both Sacred Scripture and Tradition on the matter provides additional light.

RORATE CÆLI

How can we not think, in this context, of the task of a Bishop in our own time? The humility of faith, of sharing the faith of the Church of every age, will constantly be in conflict with the prevailing wisdom of those who cling to what seems certain. Anyone who lives and proclaims the faith of the Church is on many points out of step with the prevalent way of thinking, even in our Continue Reading →

The Second Vatican Council prophecy and the matter of tradition – Vatican Insider

The “most interesting part” of Benedict XVI’s speech to the Curia in 2005, when he took stock of how the Second Vatican Council had been received, is the one concerning the relationship between the modern world and the Church as Ratzinger turned “the situation prospected by the traditionalists upside down” In fact “ In order to explain to them the open-mindedness of the Vatican II, the pope stated that the Church did not forgo and Continue Reading →
