I pray Christians and Catholics who could flood him with innumerable examples of how their Christian/Catholic education truly enriched their lives will DO so. "Evil flourishes because good men do nothing."

Highly reccomended list

How generously have you mortified self-will in order to die to self, give deference to the other and always do the most perfect in order to please God? If we are not striving for spiritual perfection and sanctity at each moment, we are using badly the time given us by God. Poor use of time is a considerable sin. Each moment given us by God was intended to be used to give Him Glory. Our Lord …More
How generously have you mortified self-will in order to die to self, give deference to the other and always do the most perfect in order to please God? If we are not striving for spiritual perfection and sanctity at each moment, we are using badly the time given us by God. Poor use of time is a considerable sin. Each moment given us by God was intended to be used to give Him Glory. Our Lord taught us to pray: "Thy Will be done on earth as it is in heaven...." Are we doing that....? Idle thought, idle words, failure to correspond generously with grace.....we'll see all of this at our judgment.

High Altar of Ste Anne de Detroit

What Irish people did not know when voting for abortion

This is absurd in the extreme. What difference do the additional details make beyond the basic reality that you are killing a baby? The fact that these people voted for abortion at all is heartbreaking.

Gloria.tv Nearly Doubled Its Visitors in One Year

I think it's clearly linked to the fact that the Gloria.tv news show with Doina and Lucia used to come out daily and was a regular source of news. Now it comes out only sporadically, so fewer people check it for updates. I know this has been the case with myself as it publishes very unpredictably, so I don't go there daily as I used to.

Chastity Advice that Actually Works

I agree. Chastity begins with elevated customs, dignified dress and self-possession. Interior chastity is reflected in modest decorum: one serves the other.

I immediately shut it off after his initial comment about how people ask him "How to live chastely without losing their minds...." This is how sick our civilization has become, as though living chastely is a source of insanity rather than perfect sanity, true joy and holy liberty; and failing to see that impurity is THE source of the absolute, unbridled insanity we are seeing everywhere.

Why men should give their wives a cheat pass this Christmas

This is the typical subterfuge of introducing the morally unthinkable and untenable and using it to desensitize and further penetrate the fabric of society, as those "ripe" enough to get on board take articles like these as encouragement, and those who initially would never consider it are moved one step closer to doing so. God save us, JESUS, Mercy!

Migrant joke about working Germans and migrant benefits goes viral

I'm surprised at those who find this funny. It's tragic and sums up the infuriating injustice being foisted on upright citizens by their governments EVERYWHERE - even here in the USA - to the derision and delight of the so-called "migrants" feeding off of this forced "charity". Witness the assault on U.S. southern borders by the recent Caravans carrying flags from other countries while …More

It's tragic and sums up the infuriating injustice being foisted on upright citizens by their governments EVERYWHERE - even here in the USA - to the derision and delight of the so-called "migrants" feeding off of this forced "charity". Witness the assault on U.S. southern borders by the recent Caravans carrying flags from other countries while disparaging offers of asylum elsewhere and demanding they be let into the United States carte blanche, as if they were completely entitled to enter at will and be supported by citizens already struggling to meet their own needs. This is all disgraceful and a sign of coming Anarchy.

New “Altar” Consists Of 120 Severed Heads

A perfectly macabre - hidden in plain sight - clue about who's in charge of the Church now: satan. We're being laughed at for our gullible - yet culpable - naiveté. Our Lord warned us about the reality of spiritual warfare and Catholics are asleep at the wheel.

Rhina Guidos - Bishops begins #usccb2018 with morning prayer

@TommasoG Right, and the Church's magnificent Liturgy, rich in sacrality, gravitas and beauty worthy of God is tossed into the dustbin, replaced by a "liturgy" and hymns just as effeminate and wimpish as what the hierarchy has become. "You are what you eat...." comes to mind.

How much more will God condemn such idle stupidities which desecrate a church dedicated to His honor and worship, and which contains the most Holy Eucharist the Real Presence of Christ Himself in the flesh?

It is because Catholics have become so empty-headed and lacking in the depths of sanctity and wisdom that they don't see the horror of such things any longer.

@TommasoG In case it's not clear, I suggest you look at the other clips and decide whether it's appropriate to project such nihilistic imagery upon a sacred church consecrated to Almighty God and to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass; to say nothing of it's dedication to one of the greatest mystics and Doctors of the Church.
It's absolutely sacrilegious.

@TommasoG Right, they show this historic church demolished and crumbling into dust and that's not supposed to be anything symbolic. Instead of a light show that glorifies God, the Most Holy Trinity, Saint Catherine of Siena or the Mother of God, they project one that's absolutely nihilistic. That's clearly satanic, sorry.

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and Holy Hours of Reparation would have been more appropriate and fitting...the Church is going down in flames, and they continue to pour fuel on the fire.

Benedict XVI Disliked Communion in the Hand, Feared “Powerful Groups”

"It is better to fear God than man...." Why should a Pope live in fear of "powerful groups", and not fear the God to Whom he will render an account of profanations of Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament? We see from this who controls the Church now.
Ave Crux

Communion on the Hand refused

So it's alright to require that Our Lord be treated with due respect to avoid profanation in Rome, but nowhere else in the Universal Church....? WHY?

The Catholic Church's social teaching would suffice to correct these abuses if it were applied and obeyed within a capitalist system. Not so with Communism and socialism which are entirely inimical to the Church teaching and our freedoms as well as a just freedom within the economy.
