  • [Catholic Caucus] Saint Gertrude, Virgin

    11/16/2017 5:46:31 PM PST · by CMRosary
    White Double THE SCHOOL which is founded upon the rule of the great Patriarch of the Monks of the West began with St. Gregory the Great. Such was the independent action of the Holy Spirit who guided it that in it women have prophesied as well as men. It is enough to mention St. Hildegarde and St. Gertrude, with whom we may fitly associate St. Mechtilde and St. Frances of Rome. Anyone who has tried modern methods will find, on making acquaintance with these ancient writers, that he is breathing another atmosphere, and is urged onward by a gentle...

    White Double “Although the Church triumphant in heaven, and the Church mourning here on earth appear to be completely separated,” says Bossuet on this feast, “they are nevertheless united by a sacred bond. This bond is charity, which is found in this land of exile as well as in our heavenly country; which rejoices the triumphant Saints and animates those still militant; which, descending from heaven to earth, and from Angels to men, causes earth to become a heaven, and men to become Angels. For, O holy Jerusalem, happy Church of the first-born whose names are written in heaven,...
  • [Catholic Caucus] The Motherhood of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Gueranger)

    10/10/2017 11:41:15 PM PDT · by CMRosary
    White Double of the Second Class IN the sixteenth century, even amidst their many divergences, the so-called Reformers agreed in utterly rejecting all the honors paid by the Catholic Church to the Blessed Virgin Mary, on the grounds that such veneration of the Mother detracted from the supreme worship due to her Divine Son. Four centuries have more than sufficed to show the result of so doing: the Son has followed the Mother! The descendants of those who refused to Mary the title and rights of Theotokos,—Mother of God—refuse to Jesus the title of Son of God in the...

    A Catholic nun in Spain has caused outrage after she suggested that the Virgin Mary may not have been a virgin after all. The controversial Dominican nun invited the ire of the Catholic Church who responded to her statements in anger. Sister Lucia Caram was speaking on a talk show over the weekend when she let slip her belief that contradicts one of the key pillars of her faith. I think that Mary was in love with Joseph and that they were a normal couple, and the normal thing is to have sex, Caram told Risto Mejideon during Sundays Chester...

    Space isn't just the next frontier for human exploration—apparently clothing brands are also looking towards the heavens. Today, Adidas revealed that its Y-3 brand will be working with Virgin Galactic to design not only the astronaut pilot’s flight-suits, but the outfits for everyone at Spaceport America. (For those not familiar with the brand, Y-3 is a fashion collaboration between Adidas and designer Yohji Yamamoto.) ... The flight-suit is made from Nomex Meta Aramid, which is a material very similar to kevlar. It retains some of the bullet-proof fabric’s rigidity, but is considerably more flexible. So while it will help support...

    Virgin Galactics SpaceShipTwo rocket plane disintegrated in mid-air after two tail stabilizers prematurely extended, federal investigators said Sunday, a discovery that could shift the focus of the probe into Fridays fatal crash away from the crafts rocket motor. But the National Transportation Safety Boards acting chairman Christopher Hart cautioned against jumping to conclusions. What Im about to say is a statement of fact and not a statement of cause, Hart said. We are a long way from finding cause. We still have months and months of investigation to do, and theres a lot that we dont know. We have extensive...

    Early analysis suggests that a violent structural failure rather than an engine explosion may have caused the crash of Virgin Galactic LLCs experimental rocket ship Friday, according to safety experts and one person familiar with details of the investigation. The National Transportation Safety Boards probe of the accident is just beginning and it could change direction, these people said. But based on video footage and preliminary data analysis, they said, investigators are focusing on aerodynamic forces that could have caused the dramatic in-flight rupture of the craft, which killed one pilot and seriously injured the other. Because some engine malfunctions...

    Theres no good time to tell a guy youre a virgin. First date? Too much, too soon. Wait until the third date and you risk being considered a tease. Second date? Perhaps, but at this point youre both still fretting over whether or not to eat another piece of bread; delving into sexual histories (or lack thereof) seems a bit extreme. So: Theres no good time to tell a guy youre a virgin. Even worse? Telling him youre waiting until marriage.

    With the Virgin Birth, you actually have more evidence that it is true rather than untrue. We have great historical testimony to it, and there is no proof that it did not happen -- obviously. But there is more. How can it be proven by science? Well, I suppose this depends on your definition of "science". If you refer to that of the exact (quantitative), of course, it could be difficult. But theology, "the highest form of philosophy", does have an answer. And, just as you trust astronomers to tell you about many things beyond earth, you should trust the...

    Inspired by Apple CEO Tim Cook, Virgin founder Richard Branson has taken to his blog to say that businesses should begin standing up against climate change deniers. "While Tim told sustainability skeptics to 'get out of our stock,'" Branson writes, "I would urge climate change deniers to get out of our way." Cook's statements came at a recent shareholders meeting, where he soundly shot down a proposal rooted in climate change denial that would have had Apple putting its bottom line above its interests in sustainability. Cook said that those who would prefer Apple do everything purely for profit simply...
