    [Catholic Caudus] “Deconsecrated Temples and the Religion of Man” — Archbishop Hector Aguer In recent times, we have witnessed, here and there, the use of cathedrals and other sacred buildings for conferences and other events for politicians, social leaders and members of other groups of different orientations. In this way, for example, recognition is sought for the ten years since the pontifical election. And the Pope himself endorses them with words such as: "It comforts my soul that my person has made possible this moment of communion, of encounter beyond differences." In these meetings, the Holy Father's teachings in...

    Bishops, priests and scholars correct Pope Francis’ statement on Holy CommunionA recent papal statement seems to open the door to Holy Communion for pro-abortion politicians such as Nancy Pelosi(LifeSiteNews) — Four bishops, several priests, and numerous Catholic scholars have signed a statement rebuking Pope Francis for a recent statement about the reception of Holy Communion, according to which “everyone is invited to the supper of the wedding of the Lamb (Re 19:9). To be admitted to the feast all that is required is the wedding garment of faith which comes from the hearing of his Word.” The Pope wrote these...

    [Catholic Caucus] DisobedienceJust how far does a bishop's authority extend?Church Militant has learned of a very troubling controversy emanating from the archdiocese of Washington and Cdl. Wilton Gregory. It involves a question of obedience versus sacrilege. If you are a seminarian anywhere in the United States, you need to think deeply about this question, because the way things are going in the Church, you may be faced with this situation.Here is the information privately revealed to Church Militant. In some unofficial-yet-clearly-understood message from Cdl. Gregory, his priests were instructed not to deny Holy Communion to President Biden. When Biden attends...

    [Catholic Caucus] Francis’ Novus Ordo: Water Eucharist on An Air Mattress – A Miracle?Bare-chested and standing in the waters of the Ionian Sea, Bernasconi presided at a Eucharist for young people of San Luigi Gonzaga Parish, Milan. Saint Aloysius Gonzaga is a model of chastity for the youth.The parody took place on Alfieri beach near Crotone, Italy. Bernasconi used the heat and the lack of a shaded area as an excuse to propose the water show. His public agreed enthusiastically. A family on the beach offered an air mattress as an "altar" (CrotoneNews.com, 24 July).During the homily, Bernasconi noticed that...

    An Amazon face was smiling on the Plenary CouncilPrior to the controversial 2019 Amazon Synod, Pope Francis called for a Church “with an Amazon face”, lauding that primitive culture for its wisdom and deep spirituality. As this author and others have written, the Pope chose to overlook the less savoury elements - the euthanasia, infanticide, cannibalism and sodomy - inherent in traditional South American cultures, just as he chose to ignore the pre-eminence of the Church he leads, the Church founded by Jesus Christ. Following the Pope’s lead, Australia’s Plenary organisers and the majority of her bishops chose to ignore...

In a July 4 tweet responding to Pope’s Francis’ criticism of denying pro-abortion politicians Communion, Strickland stated that denying pro-abortion U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is treating her with “pastoral care.” “I thank Pope Francis...

    ROME — The theological dialogue between the Catholic Church and the Oriental Orthodox Churches has reached a point where it seems appropriate to consider expanding the opportunities for the faithful of any of the churches to receive the sacraments from one another when they are not available in their own community, Pope Francis said. “Based on the theological consensus noted by your commission, would it not be possible to extend and multiply such pastoral arrangements, especially in contexts where our faithful are in minority and diaspora situations?” the pope asked members of the Joint International Commission for Theological Dialogue between...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi received Communion during a papal Mass at the Vatican Wednesday despite her support of abortion contrary to Catholic teaching. Mrs. Pelosi, who had met earlier with Pope Francis, was observed by two people to have received Communion from a priest at the Mass, The Associated Press reported. Francis presided at the Mass but did not personally distribute Communion at the event, which honored St. Peter and St. Paul. Mrs. Pelosi’s action comes roughly six weeks after San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone said in a letter that she should not present herself for Communion within the archdiocese.

    [Catholic Caucus] Dangerous Scams And Scandalous MenI anticipated a coming storm with pleasure on this early morning as I write. I welcomed the sounds of approaching thunder as a sign of beneficence. I had decided late this spring, after some initial hesitation, that I would participate in the seasonal ritual of sowing and growing after all. There are days it seems the only aspect of our lives upon which we can reliably depend are the rotation of the Earth, the change of seasons and the obedience of nature to her Master. Planting the seeds of vegetables which promise future food...

    [Catholic Caucus] Repair scandal through the healing of the EucharistPity the grocery shoppers in Buffalo, the school kids in Texas, their grieving families, and everyone now more afraid than ever of doing those simple, everyday things. You’ve got to wonder about reasons for refusing reasonable limits on gun ownership, which are inspired by the common good and offering protection from harm. We readily identify things like abortion and capital punishment as life issues, which Catholic teaching identifies as absolutely wrong under any circumstance. But protecting the earth, our common home, or making food, water, shelter, education and health care accessible,...

Proposed plans included a giant glass spire to signify secularism or an Islamic minaret to respect the growing Muslim population. Another idea included a glass swimming pool on the roof of the cathedral.This came after President Emmanuel Macron’s prime minister announced there would be a competition in design to rebuild the infamous cathedral.The alter Crucifix...

    The Silence of the ShepherdsFailure to condemn evilIn pre-World War II Germany, most Protestant and Catholic Church leaders remained silent and failed to speak out against the truly non-Christian policies implemented by Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. Denouncing these fellow ministers and priests as vendors of "cheap grace," German Lutheran pastor and theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer helped to found the Confessing Church, whose adherents refused to compromise their Christian beliefs even under threat of persecution and martyrdom. Adolf Hitler Even though Adolf Hitler was baptized Catholic, he was honest enough to recognize that the policies he promoted clearly placed him outside...

The flags — a total of 2,977 — were placed on the lawn to honor the people who lost their lives in the attacks 20 years on.The student has since been identified...
