    In true, bizarre New York fashion, a bookstore in Brooklyn is hosting a pro-abortion hex ritual to curse U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh this Saturday. Newsweek reports Catland Books, a metaphysical boutique and occult bookshop, is hosting a Ritual to Hex Brett Kavanaugh. Dakota Bracciale, co-owner of the bookshop and event organizer, claims witches at the event will make Kavanaugh suffer. Invitations to the event have been sent out via Eventbrite. The event, which is scheduled for Oct. 20, will include effigies, coffin nails, graveyard dirt and a spell, according to the report. The ritual description says that Kavanaugh...

    Anyone who grew up with the Eastern Orthodox Church (in my case, the Greek Orthodox Church) will get a good laugh at Vladimir Putin pretending to be a Christian during his first Easter as Russian ruler. As recounted by the great journalist Anna Politkovskaya (1958-2006), the bravest of all the many Putin-critics to be systematically assassinated, in her book Putins Russia: The three men clumsily and clownishly crossed themselves, Medvedev making his crosses by touching his hands to his forehead and then to his genitals. It was risible. Medvedev followed Putin in shaking the patriarchs hand as if he were...

    More Vomit From The Youth Sin-Nod What else can be expected when it starts off with the pope carrying a wiccan stang into the opening Mass? I just started to glance at the Instrumentum Laboris and that promises to be a stinker, too. At this thing, the attendees were put into fourteen groups for discussion, all led by prelates. Cardinal Cupich led one, Cardinal Maradiaga another. Right there you can see the rigging in the works. Cupich's group allegedly called for "recognition of other forms of family". Stop right there. A family comes about when a biologically born man...

    1. Kavanaugh is Catholic. The judge is a regular lector at his church, the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Washington, D.C., near his Maryland home. He also volunteers for the St. Marias Meals program at Catholic Charities, according to his biography on the court website and has tutored at the Washington Jesuit Academy. 2. He has ruled on issues important to religious conservatives, including abortion rights. Among them: Kavanaugh dissented last year on a controversial decision that allowed an undocumented teenager who had crossed from Mexico into Texas as an unaccompanied minor to get an abortion while living...

    At least one quarter of the Bible consists of prophecy, much of which has been fulfilled, demonstrating the veracity of the scriptures and the unseen hand of our great Creator that inspired them. The Bible contains many mysteries, some of which result from the figurative language used in dreams and visions in prophecy. As indicated by the Reformers quoted in the following many prophecies remained mysteries, until the prophecy was fulfilled which could then be understood through hindsight, as in the examples that we will explore in these pages.

    Embattled Cardinal Wuerl is finally out after Pope Francis accepted his resignation. Wuerl was named in the Pennsylvania grand jury report accusing him of being responsible for shuffling known predator priests around. In one egregious case, he allegedly paid off a priest who was involved in a child porn ring. It is disturbing to many Catholics that Wuerl is being allowed to retire with all his benefits after so terrible a cover-up, but at one point it was debatable whether he would even resign. USA Today reported: "A Vatican statement Friday said Francis had accepted Wuerls resignation, but named no...

 (New Testament) John 20 The Empty Tomb 20 Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. 2 So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!” 3 So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. 4 Both were running, but the other...

    The Catholic Thing ^ | October 15, 2018 | Robert Royal
    .... As is often the case with the pope, the result is not clear. Instead of a concrete procedure, the new rules give wide powers to the General Secretary of the Synod, Cardinal Baldisseri, who is to seek moral unanimity insofar as this is possible. He also determines when such moral unanimity has been reached. Unless a number of bishops insist of paragraph-by-paragraph voting, this means they could all have the names connected to a document while never having agreed to its specifics.On top of all that, it seems that if the pope approves the final document it can be...

    White Double “ALTHOUGH THE CHURCH TRIUMPHANT IN HEAVEN, and the Church mourning here on earth appear to be completely separated,” says Bossuet on this feast, “they are nevertheless united by a sacred bond. This bond is charity, which is found in this land of exile as well as in our heavenly country; which rejoices the triumphant Saints and animates those still militant; which, descending from heaven to earth, and from Angels to men, causes earth to become a heaven, and men to become Angels. For, O holy Jerusalem, happy Church of the first-born whose names are written in heaven,...

    I once asked a college philosophy class, How many of you believe in God? Out of thirty students, twenty-seven raised their hands in the affirmative; three abstained. Then I asked, How many of you believe in Satan as a personal reality? This time the vote was reversed. I pursued my inquiry. I asked, Why do you believe in a supernatural being who has the capacity to influence us for good (God) and not in a supernatural personal being who has the capacity to influence us for evil (Satan)? Their answers indicated that the Devil they were rejecting was what they...

    ...We begin, therefore, with a little Litany to Saint Paul VI, a list of 50 outrageous titles that can justly be applied to this new anti-saint. The idea, of course, is not to ask anyone to use this for an actual litany (God forbid!), but rather to point out vividly the absurdity of taking this wicked man for a saint of the Catholic Church. St. Paul VI was the destroyer of the sacraments architect of the Novus Ordo Missae deformer of the Curia captain of collegiality councilor of heresy admirer of false religions cheerleader for the United Nations patron of...

    Ex-cardinal Theodore McCarrick is not the only wrong person on whom Francis bet. Because at least three others can be pointed out, in the upper levels of the hierarchy, each one tied with double thread to the changes that this pope wants to introduce into the Church. Francis too had known for some time about McCarricks bad conduct, his grooming of young people and seminarians, taking them on outings and then to bed. And yet he kept him right with him until the end, as his chief adviser in the appointments aimed at tipping the balance of power among the...
