    [Catholic Caucus] The Benedictine College Nuns “Leaned Into” the Vatican II Revolution to Foul Mr. Butker One of the aspects of Vatican II that its liberal defenders seem to ignore these days is the Council’s defense of freedom of conscience, especially in religious matters, as set forth in the Declaration on Religious Freedom, Dignitatis Humanae:“On his part, man perceives and acknowledges the imperatives of the divine law through the mediation of conscience. In all his activity a man is bound to follow his conscience in order that he may come to God, the end and purpose of life. It follows...

It contains a prologue by the homosexual activist Vincenzo Paglia, who is also a Vatican archbishop and president...

    Daily Readings from the USCCBAs Jesus was setting out on a journey, a man ran up, knelt down before him, and asked him, “Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” Jesus answered him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. You know the commandments…” Mark 10:17–19Jesus addresses different people in different ways. He chastised the proud and arrogant who came to trap Him. He was exceptionally gentle and kind to the repentant sinner who came in tears. He spoke in parables and figures of speech to those who were curious but...

    Fiducia Supplicans: Cardinal Koch Openly Criticises the Mess Tucho has CreatedThe plenary meeting of the 'International Commission for Theological Dialogue' with the Orientals in Rome in January was supposed to be about Our Lady.But the Orientals wanted to talk about Francis' homosexual propaganda piece 'Fiducia supplicans', Cardinal Kurt Koch told Die-Tagespost.de (23 May).So the Cardinal invited Tucho Fernández to the meeting. But the coward "could not come" in person and only sent a written statement, which the Orientals described as "insufficient".Before having caused a schism in the Catholic Church, the homosex issue has already divided the Anglicans.

    ISLAMABAD/KARACHI: Police in Pakistan’s eastern Punjab province dispersed a furious mob that targeted members of the Christian community on Saturday, leaving one man in critical condition following allegations of desecration of the Muslim scripture, as civil society activists called for an end to “vigilante justice” in the country. The incident occurred in Sargodha district after some people accused their Christian neighbor of defiling the pages of the Holy Qur’an. The house and a small shoemaking factory owned and operated by the man were burned down in the ensuing rampage, which was followed by police action that led to clashes with...

    This coming Sunday is the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity. While the Trinity might evoke a “Ho-hum, don’t we know that already …” response from many Catholics, the doctrine of the Trinity is essential to—and distinctive of—the Christian faith and is vital to our daily prayer and walk with God. The doctrine of the Trinity touches on who God is; if one has this doctrine wrong, one has the wrong idea of God and may in fact be worshiping a god who does not exist. The Trinity is by no means a dead theological issue, either. Most obviously, Jews...

    Daily Readings from the USCCBPeople were bringing children to Jesus that he might touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this he became indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not prevent them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” Mark 10:13–14Simplicity, trust, purity of intent, transparency, and resiliency are all qualities that children often have by nature. They are not yet capable of evil intent. They are quick to forgive and reconcile when conflicts arise. And they have an unwavering confidence in the care of their parents. These...

    A New York Court of Appeals has rejected a challenge by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany to a state law that requires all employers to offer “medically necessary” abortion coverage under their health insurance policies. “Medically necessary” abortions are defined as “necessary to prevent, diagnose, correct, or cure conditions in the person that cause acute suffering, endanger life, result in illness or infirmity, interfere with a person’s capacity for normal activity, or threaten some significant handicap.” Exactly what qualifies is said to be up to the discretion of the abortionist. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany and other church...

Father Fidel Rodriguez, 66, admitted to police that he bit the woman but said he did so only after she reached into the ciborium and tried to grab a host from it, damaging other hosts as she did so. “The only defense that I found to defend something that for us, for all of us, is sacred, was biting her. I have recognized that I...
