    Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas offered high praise for President Donald J. Trump this week on The Bishop Strickland Show, which is being streamed live every Tuesday night on LifeSite’s YouTube channel here at 9:00 pm EST. Strickland is one of the most outspoken bishops on pro-life issues in the entire country. During his conversation with co-host Terry Barber, His Excellency said that we should “put politics aside” and simply recognize that the sitting President of the United States is speaking about unborn children in a way that makes him sound like he’s a Catholic bishop. “He’s basically quoting...

    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. Bishop William Love of the Episcopal Diocese of Albany was punished last year with a restriction on his ministerial duties after he refused to allow same-sex marriages in his diocese. Love had refused to allow for the enforcement of Resolution B012, a measure passed in 2018 requiring that all Episcopal dioceses allow for the blessing of same-sex unions.

  • "A good purpose, which has known God, cannot be changed" ~ The Martyrdom of Saint Cyprian of Carthage

    Gloria Romanorum ^ | September 17, 2018 | Florentius
    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...

    After his election to head up the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops(USCCB), Los Angeles Archbishop Jose H. Gomez, born in Monterrey, Mexico, stated the situation at the southern border is a "tragedy." He said he witnessed firsthand the "suffering of the people there " during his visits to south Texas last year. Gomez calls his new position "a blessing for the Latino people."  Gomez became archbishop of Los Angeles in 2011 which has had a homelessness crisis of “Dickensian “ dystopian proportions, according to the LA Times.

    The result of Tuesday’s special election in North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District didn’t take many political analysts by surprise. Republican Dan Bishop was predicted to win the district, which had been in Republican hands since 1963. But it may surprise analysts to know that my people, the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina, proved crucial to Bishop’s victory. They shouldn’t be surprised. The Lumbee are culturally conservative, church-going and entrepreneurial. And more and more of us are distressed by the leftward lurch of the Democratic Party. SNIP Lumbee are educators, ministers, business owners, farmers, soldiers, doctors, engineers, professional athletes and still...

    President Trump traveled to North Carolina Monday to show support for the Republican in a special election for a House seat that’s viewed as a toss-up. “North Carolina, vote for Dan Bishop tomorrow. We need him badly in Washington! His opponent is a far left Sanctuary Cities supporter,” Trump tweeted about the GOP candidate, who will face Democrat Dan McCready at the polls Tuesday. Bishop, 55, a state senator since 2017, is a conservative and critic of LGBTQ rights who once compared gay rights activists to the Taliban, and spearheaded North Carolina’s so-called “bathroom bill,” which banned transgender people from...

    Democrat Dan McCready has a narrow advantage over Republican Dan Bishop heading into the final days of the Sept. 10 redo election in North Carolina’s 9th District, according to a new bipartisan poll for Inside Elections. The survey, conducted Aug. 26-28 by Harper Polling and Clarity Campaign Labs, showed McCready with a 46-42 percent advantage over Bishop, and two third party candidates receiving a combined 3 percent. When leaners are included, McCready’s advantage extended to 49-44 percent. In Nov. 2018, McCready finished behind Republican Mark Harris 49.3-48.9 percent, but a winner was never certified or seated in Congress because of...

    Two Chinese Catholic bishops have been ordained with the blessing of both Pope Francis and the Chinese government under a controversial new deal between Beijing and the Vatican. On Monday, Monsignor Antonio Yao Shun, 54, received the papal mandate and was consecrated as the bishop of Jining, in Inner Mongolia, Vatican News reports. His ordination, which took place at Our Lady of Rosary Cathedral, marks the first since the Vatican and Beijing signed a "Provisional Agreement" in September over bishop nominations. “I can confirm that H.E. Mgr. Antonio Yao Shun, who has been consecrated Bishop of Jining/Wulanchabu, Inner Mongolia (China),...

    President Trump on Thursday evening tweeted a forthcoming rally in North Carolina in support of Republican congressional candidate Dan Bishop. Trump did not specify the date of his appearance, but without naming Bishop’s Democratic opponent Dan McCready, accused McCready of “lik[ing] the ‘Squad’ more than North Carolina,” in reference to four progressive freshman members of Congress Trump has repeatedly attacked in recent months. At Trump’s most recent North Carolina rally, controversy erupted after the crowd began chanting “Send her back” in reference to one of the four, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), a Somali refugee. Trump has since said he did...

    *** following the landslide victory in the Republican primary by conservative State Sen. Dan Bishop, few are making any big bets on Democrats taking the Charlotte-based 9th District in the special election Sept. 10. Bishop is a solid supporter of President Trump and clearly cut from the swashbuckling mold of many of the conservatives elected to House in the Republican sweeps of 2010 and '14. In surprise results, he rolled up 48 percent of the vote over eight opponents. "Dan Bishop powered his way through the 'redo' Republican primary last night, easily defeating all comers," political analyst Marc Rotterman told...

    A North Carolina legislator best known as the architect of the state’s so-called bathroom bill three years ago is racking up contributions and endorsements as he runs in the repeat of a congressional race marred by a ballot fraud scandal. State Sen. Dan Bishop of Charlotte is a leading contender among 10 candidates in next week’s GOP primary in the 9th Congressional District special election. The state elections board unanimously ordered the new election after Mark Harris, the Republican in last year’s race against Democrat Dan McCready, used a political operative accused of improperly collecting mail-in ballots. Harris opted not...

    MEXICO CITY - A Nicaraguan bishop said he will leave the country indefinitely as concerns for his security increase - presumably the product of his criticisms of the Central American nation’s president. Auxiliary Bishop Silvio Baez Ortega of Managua said April 10 he would travel to Rome - at the request of Pope Francis - after finishing Easter celebrations in Nicaragua, which has convulsed with violence for more than a year. Police and paramilitaries loyal to President Daniel Ortega have crushed protests calling for his ouster, and dissidents have been forced to flee the country. “I give thanks to Pope...

    The president of Ministers Taking a Stand – a national organization of Pastors and Christian leaders addressing moral and spiritual issues in American culture – is calling on the black community to sever its relationship with the “anti-Christian” Democrat Party. Bishop E.W. Jackson says that black Christians should not continue its relationship with a Democrat Party that is increasingly hostile to Christianity. “Years ago I released a video called EXODUS NOW, calling black Christians to come out of the Democrat Party,” Jackson says in the video. “When I did that video there was no gay marriage. Now we have it,...
