    White Double of the First Class (with privileged Octave of the Third Order) A NEW RAY OF LIGHT shines today in the heaven of holy Church, and its light brings warmth. The divine Master given to us by our Redeemer, that is, the Paraclete Spirit, who has come down into this world, continues his teachings to us, in the sacred Liturgy. The earliest of these his divine teachings was the mystery of the Trinity; and we have worshipped the Blessed Three: we have been taught who God is, we know him in his own nature, we have been admitted,...
  • 'The West Must Restore a Sense of the Sacred'

    [The new nationalisms] all are manifestations of what is commonly called the identity crisis of the West, but might better be termed the West’s struggle with the sacred. By “sacred”, I mean that which endures beyond our lifetime and beyond the lifetime of our children, the enduring characteristics that make us unique and will continue to distinguish us from the other peoples of the world, and which cannot be violated without destroying our sense of who we are. The sacred is what a country’s soldiers are willing to die to protect; unless there is something for which we are willing...
  • What is "Sacred" to the Modern Left?

    10/27/2017 5:54:52 AM PDT · by DWW1990 · 16 replies ^ | 10/27/2017 | Trevor Grant Thomas
    I think that the most telling thing about General John Kelly’s press briefing last week was when he lamented the things no longer held “sacred” in our country today... Women, life, religion, marriage, family, hard work, the military, et al are no longer widely held sacred in American culture because the values that demand such have largely been abandoned and attacked by the modern left. Rejecting the laws of the Law Giver, the left long ago decided it was time for human beings to write their own rules and decide for themselves what was and was not “sacred.”... Entertained by...

    What is Sacred Music? It’s a Bit More Complex than You May Think Msgr. Charles Pope • March 1, 2016 • There was a discussion a few years ago on my Facebook page about Church music. My parish, Holy Comforter-St. Cyprian in Washington, D.C., was featured on EWTN’s nightly news (see video below); the discussion centered on that report.Among the many forms of music we use here at my parish, gospel music is predominant at our 11:00 AM Mass. While many of the comments on the Facebook page were encouraging and supportive of this music, there were still a...

L'occasion de revoir le maestro Abbado, et le ténor mexicain Francisco Araiza (Te ergo quaesumus) dans cette oeuvre de premier plan, rarement donnée, qui trouve ici sa version de référence.

    It is only a matter of time before notorious Canadian nudist Emil Kaminski arrives in the clutches of police after four of his accomplices, including two women, were today served with four-day remand orders in the Kota Kinabalu Magistrates Court following their arrests yesterday. The quartet - two Candian brothers aged 22 and 23, a Dutch national and a British woman - were detained separately, three surrendered at the Kota Kinabalu District police headquarters and the other was arrested before boarding a flight at the Tawau Airport.

    1.  The aberrosexual NFL washout Michael Sam “proposed” to the guy whose body he uses for masturbatory friction on the cupola of St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome – exactly, directly over the tomb of St. Peter.  Because there was no other place on the surface of the earth that these shameless sodomites could have mocked and aped the sacrament of marriage.  They had to do it whilst LITERALLY dancing on the grave of St. Peter. Folks, the objective of these people and their satanic agenda is not, never has been, and never will be a “peaceful co-existence”.  The order of progression,...

    Sacred Art Class at TMC by David Clayton on December 30, 2013 A chance to learn sacred art whatever your level, and to subsidise TMC students so that they can attend for free. I will teach this and it is offered free to Thomas More College students (who have to pay just the standard weekly charge for room and board in the dorm. Even though I am Artist in Residence at the college it is difficult for the students to get intensive tuition.

    My heart was warmed by the Rochas, young Hispanic parents of five who were interviewed about a Houston newborn abandoned behind a dumpster near their home. About the abandoned and overexposed baby Mrs. Rocha said, “If I would have found him, I probably would have kept him.” Commenting on the baby’s parents, she added, “God’s watching everything… it’s going to come back and haunt them.” Voters like the Rochas must be saddened by the Democratic Party’s treatment of the little guy. Consider Wendy Davis, rising Democrat star. Ms. Davis is a Texas state senator, revered in some circles for her...
  • Houston Planned Parenthood Abortion Center Called "Holy and Sacred Ground"

    Houston, TX ( – The gigantic abortion facility planned Parenthood now runs in Houston is a seven story, 78,000 square foot center that will eventually do abortions later in pregnancy. But, one Planned Parenthood official recently offered up a blasphemous prayer using religious terms for it. As Jim Sedlak of STOPP International noticed in a news report, the pro-abortion official referred to the place built for the purpose of killing unborn children in abortion as “sacred and holy ground.” “Planned Parenthood is so much more than people think, and it is all of our job to tell everyone that it...

    One of the recommendations of Vatican II was that priests be formed in the arts: “During their philosophical and theological studies, clerics are to be taught about the history and development of sacred art, and about the sound principles governing the production of its works. In consequence they will be able to appreciate and preserve the Church’s venerable monuments, and be in a position to aid, by good advice, artists who are engaged in producing works of art” (Sacrosanctum Concilium, 129). This is not a bad idea, considering that priests are the caretakers of the Church’s artistic patrimony. Each pastor...

    Attorney General Eric Holder told a council of African American church leaders Wednesday that the "sacred" right to vote is under assault nationwide, with federal lawsuits and at least a dozen state laws that could weaken — or block — minority access to the ballot box this fall. Forty-seven years after President Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act, "overt and subtle forms of discrimination still exists," Holder said in a speech before the Council of Black Churches. The twin factors of lingering bias and systematic assaults from the right, he said, means that "for the first time in our [lifetimes],...

    A number of well-known spokesmen on the left have voiced reservations, not only about the Republican decision to have members of Congress — both Republicans and Democrats — read the Constitution aloud at the opening of the latest session of Congress, but also about Americans’ veneration of the Constitution. Three examples: In a recent appearance on MSNBC, Washington Post staff writer Ezra Klein said: “The issue with the Constitution is that the text is confusing because it was written more than a hundred years ago and what people believe it says differs from person to person.” Joy Behar asked her...

    Invited dignitaries watched the live exercises along with the South Korean president North Korea is ready for a "sacred war of justice" using a nuclear deterrent, its armed forces minister has said. Kim Yong-chun accused South Korea of making preparations for war by holding live-fire exercises near the border. The drills are one of the largest in South Korea's history, involving tanks, helicopters and fighter planes. North Korea shelled a Southern island last month killing four people - the first time Northern shells had killed civilians since the 1950-53 war. South Korean President Lee Myung-bak has promised immediate retaliation to...
