It's a joke. The bishop is claiming his cat is excommunicated because it scratched him (small scratch on finger next to ring - hardly visible). So is this the opposite of "All dogs go to heaven"? 🥴

Benedict XVI Has Produced Tensions - Cardinal Müller

“So what’s charging the batteries right now? What’s the source of electricity?” … wait for it …

Yep, that's right. Still need fossil fuels. It's like the time AOC wanted outlaw mining b/c "We live in the modern world, not some 19th century time where you needed coal fired furnaces, engines, etc. to power industry, etc." Just like the people who don't know that the food in the grocery store is grown on farms! I know someone who is anti-farming industry AND a vegan. I asked her where will …More

I know someone who is anti-farming industry AND a vegan. I asked her where will she get her veggies from if she had her way to stop U. S. agriculture to "save the planet"? She insanely replied; "From Whole Foods" 😲

Reasons Why “Christianity Is Not a Religion, It’s a Relationship” Is Unbiblical Nonsense - The …

Yes I've heard this argument from evangelical Protestant friends: they don't need a "man-made" system to approach God, they go directly to Jesus b/c he's their "personal Savior" Unfortunately, modern prelates have lent credence to this by stressing the faith as a relationship with Jesus (which it is) to the detriment of following rules (which are necessary - i.e. "Jesus said, 'If you love me, …More

Sudden deaths of young people proving a mystery for doctors

Yes this must be serious. I've heard several P.S.A. (public service announcements) on the radio warning about how strokes and blood clots can strike adults and teens [!] at anytime. This is completely new. Before they only warned of high blood pressure, etc. in the senior population.

Bootlicking Didn't Work: Bishop Barron Ends Up in Winona

"Promoveatur ut amoveatur" (Let him be promoted in order to be removed) = in other words "kicked upstairs and out of the way!"

Bishop Barron to be appointed to Minnesota diocese

"Promoveatur ut amoveatur" (Let him be promoted in order to be removed)? With all the drama going on at Barron's 'Word on Fire' ministries, maybe the powers that be feel he needs to get out of L. A. and be exiled to a nice out-of-the-way diocese. 🤫

Today's 2nd reading for the 7th Sunday of Easter at the Novus Ordo, from Revelation 22, missing …

And when not officially edited from the lectionary (book of readings) there are the so-called "short forms" where words problematic to modern ears can be omitted. For example, when St. Paul says "wives obey your husbands" in Ephesians 5, there is the option to skip that part of the text. From my experience of Mass attendance over several decades. it is almost universally dropped!

Aha

If only we had a "fake double" Francis like Paul VI and Sr. Lucia!

Francis Has Received a Promising Visitor

Plus in the second group of photos, he's wearing the rosary like a necklace - the only famous person whom I know who does the same is the depraved pop star "Madonna" ( no relation to the real Madonna - Our Lady)!

Mexico: Francis Drops Another Brick

No surprise from the Argentine Francis. I taught ESL to Latin Americans and remember well how the South Americans (Colombians, Peruvians, etc.) resented - one may even say disdained - the Mexicans. They especially hated when U. S. citizens equated all Hispanic food with tacos & burritos!

Pope: Altar and Tabernacle Should Not Be Separated

Notice Pope Pius stresses the altar as the location of SACRIFICE, not the notion of "table of the Lord" where one partakes in a meal (albeit a sacred one). It is this favoring of the Protestant idea of Eucharist as meal, not sacrifice that has let many modernist liturgists to banish the tabernacle from the sanctuary. I suspect this is the rationale behind the animus toward the traditional Latin …More

Big Plans: Francis Wants to Meet Putin For "Peace" - While Civil War Is Ravaging in The Church

Looks like Francis finally 'jumped the shark' for some of his fans - the liberal priests at my Church, who usually sing his praises and hang on his every utterance, are livid at his "pro-Russia" taking points! They even opine that if he doesn't retract his comments he'll be canceled as "Putin's Pope" like Pius XII was slandered as "Hitler's Pope" Some said Francis doesn't 'live is reality' if he …More

It's both amusing and frightening to see how these supporters of Francis are so "all in" with war with Russia they now are turning on him! 😲

The other story about Elon Musk

Yeas, he's "an anti-Christ" (notice I didn't say THE Anti-Christ). I have an example of this: a friend of mine has basically quit going to Church since it doing nothing to solve the world's problems. Instead he follows Musk's achievements religiously, sets his schedule around watching SpaceX launches, and hopes to be moving to Mars! NO joke! It's diabolical!
