  • And So It Begins: "FILIAL CORRECTION OF POPE FRANCIS For the Propagation of Heresies"

    RORATE Note: There will many Catholics, even traditionalists, whose first defeatist reaction will be to belittle this effort. But the wise, the learned in history, will understand that this is just the first part, the first piece of the puzzle, with next steps still to come in a long and extended process. This first step is an initiative of a theological nature that will likely lead, God willing, to an initiative of a canonical nature from those who have the mandate to act. And so it begins: __________________________________ Documents contained below: * (1) Filial Correction on Account of the Propagation...
  • [Catholic Caucus] Silence of Vatican's doctrinal congregation notable under Francis

    Rome — Irish Redemptorist Fr. Tony Flannery has been prohibited from publicly celebrating Mass for nearly six years. The Vatican's doctrinal congregation suspended him from ministry in February 2012 after he refused to revise some views he had expressed in a religious magazine run by his order. In mid-January, Flannery turned 70. He announced he would violate his suspension for the first time in order to celebrate a public Mass of thanksgiving for those who had offered him support through the last few years. The priest, a popular writer, retreat giver and former pastor, gave the decision a lot of...
  • The Sickness Unto Death...Charismatic Post Mortem pt 4

    There are many lessons we can learn from the death of the Charismatic movement, if we are willing and humble enough to prayerfully consider them. ( I define the death of a Spiritual movement as this; If you are worse off and further from “the only True God”for having participated). I don’t think it helpful to just dismiss everything about it as rubbish and to try to move on, for only Truth can set us free. I would like to call our attention to the foundational source of the departure, which is the erroneous doctrine which quickly flooded in and...
  • Pope Francis and the Neocatechumenal Way: Is the Holy Father okay with their heresies?

    There are many within the Catholic Church who are rightfully concerned about the Neocatechumenal Way and its approach to Catholic teaching and liturgy. See here for example. Back in 2002, I prepared a report on the Neocatechumenal Way for Our Lady's Warriors. See here. At EWTN's website, one Catholic notes that the Neocatechumenal Way has, "..un-Catholic beliefs and practices. The REALLY solidly Catholic magazine 'Christian Order' has two articles available on its website giving examples of this. They are: The Neocatechumenate: Testimonies The Neocatechumenal Way -- A Fearful Danger to the Faith (by Father Enrico Zoffoli) This group...

  • "St. John of Damascus Critique of Islam" (“the heresy of the Ishmaelites”)

    St. John of Damascuss Critique of Islam Webmaster note: The following passage is from Saint John’s monumental work, the Fount of Knowledge, part two entitled Heresies in Epitome: How They Began and Whence They Drew Their Origin. It is usually just cited as Heresies. The translator’s introduction points out that Fount of Knowledge is one of the most “important single works produced in the Greek patristic period,…offering as it does an extensive and lucid synthesis of the Greek theological science of the whole period. It is the first great Summa of theology to appear in either the East or the...
  • Catholic Word of the Day: SOLOVYEVISM, 05-05-09

    05/05/2009 8:27:52 AM PDT · by Salvation · 5 replies · 561+ views ^ | Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary
    Featured Term (selected at random):SOLOVYEVISM Doctrine of Church and State of Vladimir Solovyev (1853-1900), Russian Orthodox theologian who became a roman Catholic. He held that sound Christology is the basis of sound Church and State relations in society. The latter must steer a balanced middle course between two heretical extremes, Nestorianism and Monophysitism. A Nestorian approach would separate Church and State, even as it totally divides Christ into two persons, divine and human. A Monophysite approach would totally absorb State by the Church, even as it totally absorbed Christ's human nature in his divinity. The correct attitude is to keep...

    The Watchman Expositor ^ | 1999 | Jason Barker
    In 2 Peter 2:1–2, the apostle states, “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.” The apostle accurately observed the spread of heresy in the first–century church, and his warning that false teachers would continue to arise can easily be seen in the growth of cults and pseudo–Christian religions in...

    I'm in the process of doing research on those people who have hurt the Church (universal) both in the past and in the present.I would appreciate any help in gathering the names of those you think whose positions, actions, practices, etc., have done harm to the Body of Christ, although they may have been well-intentioned.Would you please list your pick(s) and a brief summary of why you chose them. For example, Augustine is considered a "church father," although his writings encouraged the marriage of church and state for the purpose of societal transformation, even if it required forced "transformation" (i.e.,...
