Canon 15 A woman shall not receive the laying on of hands as a deaconess under forty years of age, and then only after searching examination. And if, after she has had hands laid on her and has continued for a time to minister, she shall despise the grace of God and give herself in marriage, she shall be anathematized and the man united to her.
The RCC had a permanent diaconate at the time of this ecumenical council... it eventually became only transitional … [More]

I am not really competing with Verbum because I can't. I am one person, where they are hundreds with a multi-million dollar budget. I was just trying to fill a gap for something free and accessible when i created it. And I wanted to create something that is traditional and Catholic. One thing you will like is that I have a traditional calendar up to the year 2050 with the readings etc. It also comes with nice RSS feeds for video content. It uses the Douay Rheims English Bible, … [More]
Temperance said- [--- Were not women deacons in the early church??? ---]
They were not sacramentaly deacons. They assisted the priest or deacon. For instance, in baptizing adult women to avoid scandal. They were called deaconesses in the same way a wife of a priest(presbyter) was and still is called a presbytera. Neither were ordained.
In the video below, the head of the STURP team discounted all those disputing the C14 tests as the lunatic fringe. He tried to show that the samples received did not have any cotton in it from French reweaving as claimed by 'lunatics'. He examined a piece of the sample that remained at his laboratory and was shocked and angered to find out the scientists were given bad samples which were half medieval cotton. The cotton was dyed to look like linen where the nuns repaired a fraying edge which … [More]
First off, the Anabaptist sect was started by Nicolas Storch in Germany in the 1500's. Secondly, Waldenses are not the same as Anabaptists, so why conflate the two. Furthermore, the Waldenses movement was founded by a man known simply as Waldo(Waldes) in the 1100's. Your claim that a Catholic bishop of Turin started the movement was fabricated by a man who was desperately trying to find some sort of continuity among protestant belief.... There was no continuity then, and there is no … [More]
I agree with SBFU. This is not real news, and this old dredged up content serves only the Evil One by inflaming hatred in those who watch it. That most Jews regard Jesus like traditional Catholics regard Luther is not a surprise. In other words, as a reprobate and fraud. Yet Catholics are still the "elder brothers" of the Lutherans in faith, because even brothers can sometimes hate each other. This "news brief" is a thinly veiled critique on statements by Cardinal Koch. It would have been … [More]
Am I reading this correctly? Schönborn asked them to change the title of the appeal? Thats it? Thats all? Truly, he is only concerned with perception and not substance. It is amusing to see these heretics get frustrated with his insincerity. The faithful and the heretics are concerned with the same thing... the content. Schönborn reminds me of the Abp of Cantebury. God forbid he should ever become pope.
