Fr. James Martin Treats Sacred Scripture Like a Cheap Logic Puzzle | The Stream

By JOHN ZMIRAK Published on November 21, 2017 • 20 Comments John Zmirak Fr. James Martin, SJ is at it again. Maybe he’s trying to speed ecumenism with Mainline Protestant churches. Because it seems each week he comes out with a statement every bit as crazy as anything you’d hear from the most jaded post-Christian posers. You know, the kind who gather in ersatz vestments to “bless” abortion clinics with songs by Leonard Cohen, who was Continue Reading →

Reposting the Series ~ The Lamb of God Theme: Second Model

  Abridged from a work by: Rev. Msgr. Donald C. Hamburger Model Two: Noah’s Altar, Ark and Rainbow – Genesis 5:28-7:28 – Prehistory The rainbow is a sign of the eternal covenant God made with mankind: that He would never again destroy the world’s creatures by flood as He did in the days of Noah. A Sketch of Noah’s Life: God looked down from the heavenly heights and saw how evil the people had become. Continue Reading →

Taking on the Homosexual Movement – Crisis Magazine

“As international pressures and heroic actions of dissidents within the Soviet Bloc—along with “little old ladies praying the rosary for seventy years,” as a priest-professor of mine said at the time—were essential elements in communism’s collapse, so the intelligent, persistent, coordinated efforts of the defenders of sound culture—along with, to be sure, much prayer and sacrifice to the Almighty—can bring Western secular humanist leftism to heel.” Readmore via Source: Taking on the Homosexual Movement – Continue Reading →

Water and Wine: The Two Wills of Christ

Dear Charity of Christ, I have been meaning to write this post for some time, only to lack sufficient time to put pen to paper, or rather, finger to keyboard. Of course, those words of choice fall short in the poetic prose of times gone past. Nonetheless, the topic of discussion here is the two wills that are manifested within the Incarnation our dear Lord and Savior. I first came across a great explanation on Continue Reading →

Reposting the Series ~The Lamb of God Theme: Intro, Preface and First Model

  Abridged from a work by: Rev. Msgr. Donald C. Hamburger Many years ago (17 years to be exact) I was privileged to help an old retired priest write a small booklet about something he had thought through for many years: the Lamb of God Theme in the Bible. I have searched high and low without having any luck looking for the original disks so that I might turn it into a PDF file for Continue Reading →

The Remnant Newspaper – Don’t Stop Believing (A Little Reminder from The Remnant)

Written by  Michael Matt “Oft hope is born when all is forlorn.”   – J.R.R. Tolkien T-O-R-T-U-R-E (What Did Jesus Say to Jeremiah Denton in the “Hanoi Hilton”?) In his 1956 article, I Found God in Soviet Russia, concentration camp survivor John Noble writes: “I have seen Christianity under the most terrible persecution it has suffered since the days of Nero, and I have seen abundant proof that faith in Christ, the Saviour, is still alive in Continue Reading →

Divine Mercy Chaplet–EWTN

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

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 Magi and Death Before Birth – Truth and Charity Forum

I do not think that popular sentiment has come anywhere near close to granting those extraordinary travelers, the Magi, the honor they truly deserve. These “watchers of the sky” must have been divinely inspired, in addition to being intellectually gifted, to have enough faith to leave the comforts of their homeland and embark on what must have been an extremely arduous journey. The Magi were guided by a star, not a map. They were responding to Continue Reading →

What Difference Does Heaven Make?

Only the difference between hope and despair in the end, between two totally different visions of life; between “chance or the dance”. At death we find out which vision is true: does it all go down the drain in the end, or are all the loose threads finally tied together into a gloriously perfect tapestry? Do the tangled paths through the forest of life lead to the golden castle or over the cliff and into Continue Reading →

On Writing a History of the Catholic Church: Catholic World Report

The Catholic Church is the longest-enduring institution in the world, and her historical character is integral to her identity. The earliest Christians claimed to be witnesses to the life, death, and Resurrection of Jesus, thereby making Christianity a historical religion, emanating from a Judaism that was itself a historical religion. Christianity staked its claim to truth on certain events, notably that at a precise moment in history the Son of God came to earth. The Continue Reading →
