Severe Church Crisis, And What to Do About It
The crisis of the Faith is evident from the fact that the churches are emptying, Cardinal Robert Sarah told French Aleteia. Sarah concludes from divorce, abortion and euthanasia that the civil society is also disintegrating. Quote: "We are in a difficult situation and the crisis is deep and serious.”
Everybody says something different
For Sarah, the division inside the Church is particularly "tragic." It shows itself in the Church’s doctrine, moral teaching and discipline. Quote: "Everyone says and thinks what he wants." The Church seems to have no doctrine of the Faith and no clear moral teaching anymore.
Fold your hands, and shut up?
As a solution, Sarah proposes to devote oneself to more prayer and to cry out like the apostles in the storm-tossed boat: "Lord, do you care that we perish?" Sarah does not believe that the renewal of the Church comes from structural reforms and activism. According to him, it needs the grace that comes from …More

Robert Sarah también esta equivocado pues ninguno de los que este unido al apostata Bergoglio en realidad esta luchando en contra de la apostasía pues esta unido a la causa principal.

Robert Sarah también esta equivocado pues ninguno de los que este unido al apostata Bergoglio en realidad esta luchando en contra de la apostasía pues esta unido a la causa principal. Hay una gran diferencia entre una crisis de fe y la apostasía. Actualmente estamos viendo la gran a apostasía anunciada en el Evangelio en la que el Hijo de Perdición es el responsable principal de confirmar a los que se rebelan contra Dios en la apostasía. Y si se quiere buscar la raíz hay que empezar por señalar los culpables en la infiltración homosexual, masónica y comunista en la Iglesia. Así que la Iglesia como tal NO es la que tiene la mal llamada ´crisis´ sino la que sufre la crucifixión en manos de su verdugo, la que esta sufriendo la Gran Tribulación y la que esta siendo obligada a huir al desierto.

Cardinal Sarah is, of course, correct in what he has stated. To clarify one point "Everyone says and thinks what he wants." This is only partially true. Those who are still left and who are still Catholic know the traditions and doctrine of Catholicism and these people will not “say or think what he/she want.” Progressives will.

I would like to be among the first to comment on the new hair style of our lovely and talented news-presenter. Very nice.

While it’s true that people often will get a new haircut when they've just experienced a major life change or are planning a life change, I won’t be so nosy as to pry into your affairs and ask what’s going on?!?

Getting the chop will made you realize that you are more than just the sum of your hair. I humbly predict you will feel prettier (my mother was a hair stylist, so I have a bit of knowledge about these things). The new ‘do’ should provide an intangible quality of being happier in your own skin. Your walk will be more confident and your head held a bit higher, which may attract attention from a few strangers (even in Moldova).

(perhaps a little eyeliner and mascara will make those eyes POP. Sorry, just thinking out loud) Maybe a touch of lip gloss?

The comments concerning the looks of this news anchor are extremely un-catholic and quite disturbing.

So then, compliments are "un-catholic" and "quite disturbing" in your view?

It is illustrative of your own negative and degenerate character that you could not compliment the news presenter at all but chose rather to criticize the complements that she did receive.

To summarize:

The history of the Church’s thought on the morality of individuals’ choices of dress and ornamentation has always been guided by social custom and social status. What is the norm in society has always been acceptable, given that a person does not have sinful intentions with his or her mode of dress. It is morally sound to base our decisions in how we dress and present ourselves on the customs of our society given that how we dress respects other people and our own bodies. St. Frances De Sales says in his Introduction to the Devout Life that “propriety in dress consists in material, fashion and cleanliness,” and as “to the material and fashion of clothes, propriety in these respects depends on various circumstances such as time, age, rank, those with whom you associate; and it varies on different occasions.” (III.25) When reflecting on these thoughts and the use of cosmetics, it would seem that there is no problem with a woman choosing to wear makeup to fit in with society.
