    “. . . in your moral excellence, knowledge” (2 Peter 1:5). Moral excellence cannot develop in an intellectual vacuum. It’s a frightening thing to realize the extent to which our culture downplays knowledge in favor of emotions. These days people are more likely to ask, “How will it make me feel?” instead of, “Is it true?” Sadly, the church has bought into the spirit of the age. Many people go to church, not to learn the truths of God’s Word, but to get an emotional high. The focus of theological discussion also reflects the contemporary hostility to knowledge. To a...

    On Sunday, President Joe Biden made history when he dropped out of the race via a post on X (Twitter) just 107 days before the 2024 Election. In a follow-up post 30 minutes later, he endorsed Vice President Kamala Harris to take his place. “Joe Biden has been the worst President in my lifetime and Kamala Harris has been right there with him every step of the way,” tweeted Trump vice-presidential hopeful Sen. J.D. Vance, R-OH. Joe Biden has been the worst President in my lifetime and Kamala Harris has been right there with him every step of the way....

    From Pius XII to Paul VI to Cardinal Roche: The Difference One Word Can Make - Article by Paolo PasqualucciThe current Catholic hierarchy, starting with the Pope, often refers to the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965) as the basis for the “reforms” it continues to carry out in the constitution of the Church (with synodality), in doctrine (with the ecumenical Declaration of Abu Dhabi), in Christian morality (with unprecedented concessions - liturgical and otherwise - to irregular couples of all kinds) and to justify its constant fight against the ancient rite of the Mass, also known as the “traditional Mass”, whose...

    Daily Readings from the USCCB“Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?” And stretching out his hand toward his disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers. For whoever does the will of my heavenly Father is my brother, and sister, and mother.” Matthew 12:48–50These questions of Jesus were posed by Him to a crowd of people who were inside a house where He was teaching. His mother and brothers arrived outside asking to speak to Him. First of all, it should be noted that the word “brothers” in ancient Hebrew, Aramaic and other languages did not necessarily...

    [Catholic Caucus] "Request from Rome": Nuns of Pontcalec Introduce Novus OrdoThe Dominican Sisters of Pontcalec, still an institute of the Roman Rite, announced on 7 July during Sunday Mass that at their retreat (27 July to 2 August) the community Mass would be celebrated according to the Novus Ordo Missae.This measure was taken at "the request from Rome".The news was published in an open letter on LeForumCatholique.org (21 July) by outraged faithful who have settled near the monastery precisely to attend the Roman Mass with their families. They now feel betrayed.They write that the nuns are about "to abandon the...

    “Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence” (2 Peter 1:5). God’s provision does not preclude our responsibility. There are some who believe that since God has provided everything needed for the Christian life, believers should expect Him to do everything for them. Their motto is, “Let go and let God!” If Peter had a motto for the Christian life, it would have been more along the lines of the popular World War II song, “Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition!” Peter knew the Christian life is a struggle in which believers...

His first predicated the events which unveiled the covid pandemic. The entire video is well worth listening to, while the time stamp at about 6:30 mark details which I believe to be current events as well as near future events.

    [Catholic Caucus] Why the Attempt to Ban the Latin Mass Is FailingThe inability to shut down the traditional Latin Mass reflects the different between power and authority in the papacy.There has been much chatter on the interwebs lately about possible further restrictions being imposed upon the celebration of the classical Roman Rite, or the Traditional Latin Mass, as it is often called. However, it appears that such rumors are not going to materialize for now, even as the Vatican liturgical office devises new ways to express its contempt for those who attend celebrations of the TLM, in addition to the...

    The Good, the Bad, and the Fiendishly Synodal at the National Eucharistic CongressEucharistic revival and synodality go together. Or to put it another way, I believe that we will have true Eucharistic revival when we experience the Eucharist as the sacrament of Christ’s incarnation: as the Lord walking with us together on the way.” (Cardinal Christophe Pierre, the Apostolic Nuncio to the United States, November 14, 2023)In his essay about converting to Catholicism in The Road to Damascus, Evelyn Waugh wrote of the self-evident logic that led him to conclude that if Christianity was true, the Catholic Church must be...

And as she wept, she bent over into the tomb and saw two angels in white sitting there, one at the head and one at the feet where the Body of Jesus had been. John 20:11–12Early in His ministry, Jesus cast seven demons out of Mary of Magdala. As a result, she became an exceptionally faithful follower of Jesus. She was most likely one of His followers who provided for Jesus and the disciples out of her own resources as they traveled. She listened to His teachings, witnessed His miracles,...

    The Freedom From Religion Foundation has reached a settlement on behalf of The Satanic Temple (TST), according to a recent press release, after a judge ruled the Shelby County Board of Education in Memphis, TN, violated TST’s First Amendment rights by trying to stop the formation of an “After School Satan Club. It’s not an unexpected blow, given that The Satanic Temple is “the only Satanic religious organization recognized as a church by the IRS and the Federal court system.” In this case, the after-school club was advertised as consisting of” fun” and “exciting” activities for the children, including science...
