    [Catholic Caucus] U.S. Bishops Continue Intense Debate Over Timing and Impact of Proposed Document on EucharistMost bishops voiced support for a teaching document on Holy Communion, but some pushed for the removal of the section that would address public officials who are at odds with the Church on abortion and other issues.WASHINGTON — The second day of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) spring general assembly featured a lengthy and passionate debate over the proposal to draft a document on the Church’s teaching on the Eucharist.The document, which would include a discussion of worthiness to receive Communion, remains a...

    Pope Francis advisor 'Father Jim' says Catholics should celebrate Pride monthRev. James Martin, SJ—popularly known as Father Jim—was asked to serve as special advisor to Pope Francis to help communicate to the English-speaking world. Some Vatican insiders say Father Jim has been a conduit to help communicate what Pope Francis really wants to say outside of the constraints of the Catholic cardinals and archbishops who run the Vatican.Father Jim, a popular pro-LGBT author and editor of America magazine, has been disinvited by Catholic bishops and universities who oppose his preaching of tolerance and acceptance.In a June 2 social media video,...

    Catholic Cancel Culture In an effort led by the pope, the Church is waging an all-out assault on its most orthodox believers.Before his election to the papacy, Jorge Bergoglio had already earned a reputation as an exponent of “pastoral” Catholicism. But out of it came few pastors, as those familiar with his tenure as archbishop of Buenos Aires knew. They noted that his local seminary was suffering from a small number of vocations. Even John Allen, a Vatican correspondent sympathetic to the pope’s liberalism, reported in 2013 that “vocations to the priesthood have been falling in Buenos Aires on his...

    VAICAN CITY — Cardinals Blase Cupich and Joseph Tobin met with the prefect for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith at the Vatican just days before the congregation’s prefect sent a letter urging the U.S. bishops to fulfill a set of conditions before implementing a plan regarding pro-abortion Catholic politicians receiving Holy Communion. The Register has confirmed through Vatican sources that the two cardinals, both of whom oppose stricter rules on the issue, visited the Vatican mid-morning on April 30, during which they met with CDF prefect Cardinal Luis Ladaria.

    There is a somewhat below-the-radar campaign going on, initiated by Cdl. Blase Cupich of Chicago (an active supporter of all things homosexual in the Church) to rehabilitate the image of his predecessor, Cdl. Joseph Bernardin. To be clear, Bernardin was the prelate who put the homosexual-bishop machine on steroids here in the United States and almost single-handedly helped bring down the Church in America. But in a massive attempt to rewrite U.S. Church history, Cupich is having diocesan newspapers all over the country publish his propaganda that Bernardin was some kind of hero, an opponent of child sex-abuse who developed...

    By meeting Cupich, Pope Francis masters speaking without wordsROME – St. Francis of Assisi supposedly said, “Preach always, and, when necessary, use words.” In all honesty, there’s no evidence St. Francis ever said anything like that – but even so, it’s a piece of advice popes long have taken to heart.Over the centuries, popes have always found plenty of ways to speak without using words, especially when words might be inconvenient or hard to take back. Popes speak by gestures, by whom they name to key jobs, by where they put their money and where they chose to travel.Even a...

    How the Vatican tried to suppress criticism of the new presidentCardinal Blase Cupich, the ambitious left-wing archbishop of Chicago, must have imagined that Joe Biden's inauguration last week would be a moment to savour. He and a small number of his liberal colleagues, known as 'the Biden bishops', have been working tremendously hard to make sure that, once their candidate was elected, any mention of his radical support for abortion would be sotto voce and preferably inaudible. They thought they'd succeeded. But then things went spectacularly wrong. The president of the US bishops' conference, Archbishop José Gomez of Los Angeles,...

On inauguration day, his Catholic apologists bathed him in praise and took bitter issue with Archbishop José Gomez for daring to criticize his anti-Catholic stances. Gomez, president of the U.S. bishops’ conference, issued a tame statement, offering prayers and good wishes while noting, “Our new President has pledged to pursue certain policies that would advance moral evils.” But that was too much for Cardinal Blase Cupich, who declared Gomez’s statement “ill-considered.”Other members of the...

Aside from the fact that there is seemingly no precedent for doing so, the statement, critical of President Biden, came as a surprise to many bishops, who received it just hours before it was released.”“The statement was crafted without...

It simply means, “we are all related, we are all relatives.” It expresses an understanding of human existence as belonging to a people who share a common heritage and destiny.

But was I surprised? No.As the saying goes, if you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention. What did we expect when...
