    On Friday, the anti-government Bishop Rolando Alvarez was arrested in Nicaragua. Now there is growing criticism that Pope Francis has not yet taken a clear position on the case. While the police cordoned off the area outside, Bishop Rolando Alvarez and some of his companions celebrated Mass in his church in Matagalpa. The encirclement of the Nicaraguan government critic lasted more than two weeks. His fate caused an international sensation. A picture of him on his knees praying for mercy for the armed police officers went around the world. On Friday, the regime finally struck:

    The problem is that they’re in common use.. New York Congressman Jerry Nadler openly admitted at a House Judiciary Committee hearing this week that the point of gun control legislation being pushed by Democrats is to confiscate firearms in “common use”. When questioned by GOP North Carolina Rep. Dan Bishop if Democrats dispute that the “Assault Weapons Ban of 2021,” proposes to ban guns currently in “common use” nation-wide, Nadler, chairman of the committee, replied “That’s the point of the bill.” “So, to clarify, Mr. Chairman, you’re saying it is the point of the bill to ban weapons that are...

    In defiance of her own Archbishop’s decision to deny her communion because of her aggressive promotion of abortion, new reports indicate Nancy Pelosi received communion yesterday at a liberal Catholic church in Washington. As LifeNews reported, Cordileone said he formally notified U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi this week that she can no longer be allowed communion because she is no longer in communion with the Catholic Church by virtue of her repeatedly promoting abortion. Cordileone, who serves Pelosi’s home district of San Francisco, said he informed the congresswoman of his decision Thursday after repeated attempts to speak with her about...

Adam Schiff (D-CA) to actor Jussie Smollett, who was convicted of five counts of felony disorderly conduct for faking a hate crime in Chicago. Bishop said because Schiff has been constantly pushing the narrative that Donald Trump colluded with Russia in the 2016 presidential election, that he was “the Jussie Smollett of Congress.”

    A disciplinary panel of The Episcopal Church has ruled that a bishop who refused to allow the blessing of same-sex marriages in his diocese violated canon law.

    Saint Cyprian of Carthage is little remembered today, and that is a shame. For those familiar with the traditional Canon of the Roman Mass, Cyprian’s name is there, preserved for posterity in between Cornelius and Lawrence, two other martyrs of the mid-3rd century. But if the words and deeds of many of the saints from that era are obscure to us today, the life of Cyprian can not be classified as such. He wrote voluminously and many of his works have come down to us from antiquity—enough to fill the 600 page tome known as The Complete Works of Saint...
