Posted on 03/04/2012 7:20:50 PM PST by Domestic Church
Fr. John Hollowells truly amazing monologue needs to be spread far and wide. Its a wake up call, and one of the most encouraging statements Ive heard in a long time. Its a Divine battle cry!
The talk heats up after minute 2 where he notes in this talk addressed to Planned Parenthood Pres. Cecile Richards that we have not doubt that in the future Planned Parenthood will be seen as the slave traders, the Nazis, the Communists and all those groups that seek to oppress people.
He then warns PP and President Obama: You better knock us out now. You and the President better knock us out right now, because Cecile, I can promise you - Here comes the Catholic Church ... youve awakened a sleeping giant.
Priests and bishops that have in the past been content to remain quiet are no longer so. ... The Truth is being rained down everywhere. ... Here comes the Catholic Church.
He notes that PP since its founding have proclaimed yourselves sworn enemies of the Catholic Church, but were in the ring now, the gloves are off. He acknowledges that Cecile has every worldly advantage in her corner - the President of the United States, the media. But Goliath too had every worldly advantage.
The powerful talk ends quoting Tolkein: The board is set, the pieces are now in motion, at last we come to it - the great battle of our age.
Too many Catholics and their priests are Democrats first, Catholics second. Why does the Pope not condemn such obvious apostasy?
And a *hungry* giant too, I’ll bet! You guys are probably dying for a juicy steak or hamburger, with `Lent’ and all.
Why can’t you all ride herd on people like Pelosi, Kennedy, et al., who act like pagans, the forces behind abortion, birth control, ad nauseum?
You still do that `bell, book and candle’ stuff, right? But, no, they still confess their sins, receive absolution, and so forth and so on. Go figger.
Awesome. we all need to gear up fr November no matter who is picked and oust the Obamunist at all costs.
As far as I know the Pope does speak to this. Of course I wouldn’t expect the MSM to always report on it though.
I haven't seen it either here in the Philly area. I would speculate that at least 75 to 80 percent of the Mass attenders in my parish wouldn't vote Dem anyway and of the Dem voters, this is a non issue. In other words, the outraged Catholics were already outraged by the Dems. The contraception mandate has changed nothing.
The blindfolding of children and spoon feeding them vile liquid was not done by a priest.
did folks ask the SBC to publically excommunicate Carter or Clinton?.... And what about getting pastors to state that Obama and his ‘church; is not Christian?
Do you have some evidence that Miss Fluke claims to be Catholic? Slick Willy went to Georgetown and he is no Catholic and never claimed to be. I suspect that a majority of Georgetown Law School students are not Catholic.
We Catholics have enough to bear with the likes of Pelosi, Biden, Kerry, Rosa DeLauro, Patty Murray, Maria Cantwell, anything named Kennedy, Susan Collins, Patrick Leahy, Kathleen Sebelius, Dick Durbin, Pat Quinn, Jerry Brown, Tom Harkin, Jim Moran, Tom Perriello, Tim Kaine, Mario Cuomo, Anthony Cuomo, and so many, many others of their self-excommunicated ilk. We don't need to collect questionables like Miss Fluke.
At least the Vatican has been making a point of appointing mostly Catholics as bishops lately.
Just what are you expecting by way of public excommunication? The government gets fussy nowadays if we ask that they be burned at the stake. In medieval times, there used to be some colorful but nonviolent ceremonies usually performed at a cathedral by a bishop in full regalia snuffing out candles to represent the souls of the excommunicated but imagine that being televised on 60 Minutes.
In this era, there are various other methods. The primary one is that those who commit mortal sin and are unrepentant (have not confessed and received forgiveness) are automatically excommunicated (are not to receive the Holy Eucharist under penalty of further mortal sin) until they confess and receive forgiveness. Dying in such a state of sin sends the unrepentant to eternal damnation which seems likely to be even more serious than being burned at the stake. There are specific sins in the Catechism of the Catholic Church (including material cooperation with abortion) which carry an automatic excommunication (called a latae sententiae excommunication).
Personally, I think that a weekly television series produced by Church officials featuring some ceremonial and publicly declaring the excommunication of the miscreants of the week would make for great ratings and very praiseworthy results but that is above my pay grade as a mere member in the pews. Narration or even action by a Fulton Sheen type would be nice. He had a sense of dramatic timing and a genuine feel for the medium of television.
EXCOMMUNICATION! could be the ultimate reality show. The pedestrian automatic kind of excommunication is less dramatic, less emotionally satisfying but every bit as effective as to the miscreant.
For Novus Ordo Masses (if one must) find Father Donald French in the New Haven area. Immaculate Conception Church in Waterbury is highly unlikely to be liberal. Find Father Paul Check in the Bridgeport Diocese. I have not been to St. Mary's in New Haven in more than ten years, but it was generally reasonably conservative since you and I were both regulars there. There are others.
As to mere politics, unless we can achieve ABR, there is no point in ABO. R=O=R=O=R=O, etc. Rule or ruin! Also remember: politics is the province of the laity.
I’m a woman of God but I will watch and see before I beccome inolved any more than I already am....other times catholics have had other calls but their people don’t repond to the call sufficient to do more than fundraising for their cause....so wait and see is just wise.
Mandatory microchip implantation is only an election away.
Georgetown is only 60 percent Catholic. School of Foreign Service, where Slick went, probably even less so. Law also.
So are you suggesting this priest or others should not do their part because all is lost? No hope in changing people, so dont even express your true beliefs?
Francis of Assisi? The patron saint of animals?
What happened to him?
For true martyrs, look at St Justin, or perhaps Polycarp, the old man... http://www.polycarp.net/
Or better yet, Jesus Christ himself.

It is not only the Catholic church that is weak-kneed.
All of Christianity shrinks from their responsibility given by Jesus in Matthew 18:15-17.
It must be proclaimed from the pulpit of the congregant’s home church that he is not welcome among them until he repents, and that he be shunned until then.
Any and all Democrat politicians and public figures claiming to be Christian or Catholic that promote anti-Biblical, anti-Church, anti-Christ policies must be publicly renounced and refused permission into the congregation if they will not repent.
And it must be made clear that anybody that votes for such a person is participating with him in his rebellion against Christ.
Any Bible believing, Christ honoring church must do so or they themselves are in rebellion, honoring man more than God.
Havent Catholics been voting eastern liberals in to office for centuries?
-——Havent Catholics been voting eastern liberals in to office for centuries?-——
At least for the last 50 years. Among baptized Catholics, there exists a continuum of orthodoxy and orthopraxy, just as in other Christian churches. The saints shine (Mother Teresa), and the lax (Ted Kennedy), not so much. Regular church-goers tend to vote more conservatively.
My favorite statistic: The divorce rate among Catholic couples who practice natural family planning is 1%, my wife and I included. Actually, we skipped NFP too.
What Catholics do have is a non-contradictory body of doctrine, and Sacraments that are effective on their own. And apostolic succession, and...
just as Rush says, “liberals are liberals first!”
“0bama, the muzzie devil, is waging war against ALL Christians, not just Catholics.”........
Yup! You are absolutely right. However, from a strategic perspective, to defeat the enemy (Christians), it becomes necessary to knock out the “Mother ship”, so to say. They are ocunting on all the other denominations of Christianity to fold if the RC Church can be defeated.
It will not happen. Jesus promised us that He will be at our side forever. We all need to pray, pray, pray and stick together during this tough time in our lives and in the life of our beloved country.
Pope’s have condemned said behavior for nearly two millenia. They’ve been ignored just as Christ was and still is ignored.
If you honestly think people like that are spending any time inside of a confessional I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.
I support what Fr. Hollowell is saying 100%. So, no, I am not saying he shouldn’t do anything and I didn’t say all is lost.
But I think it is silly for people to comment that the “whole country” is going to “wake up” over this matter. The “whole country” isn’t going to do anything.
“It is not only the Catholic church that is weak-kneed.

elkie, unfortunately I am out-of-town quite often and end up at Mass in Hartford-WestHartford. West Hartford Catholics have to be the silliest people on the planet.
Like I say, I am going to have to find some of the more obscure small parishes where a different type might be spending there time. There’s always the Cathedral in HTFD. It’ll be interesting who I can find.
Ok, whole country, rest of country, I agree wont happen.
We just need enough to vote out current occupant so we can reverse the direction he is trying to take our country
The subject of this thread is closely related, although the message in question was delivered before the slut in question broke into the news. (Limbaugh may feel it necessary to apologize for that word. I think it was just too accurate for her comfort.)
In the case that you missed it when posted, please give a listen to what this Catholic Priest has to say -
Where is that quote from?
Not in my family they haven’t...we’ve been Republican since Lincoln.
“EXCOMMUNICATION! could be the ultimate reality show”
It would be entertaining and enlightening! It may do a better catechesis too. It would make fast work of Pelosi et al.
0bama is REALLY stupid if he thinks he can defeat Christianity. It’s time for a Crusade!
Exactly. I disagree with Catholics on many things (not contraceptives, be fruitful and multiply, a smart and Biblical way to help keep Christianity strong on this earth) but they have the freedom to exercise their religion as they see it. If they don't then none of us will. This is deadly and of the anti Christ. May God help us, in Jesus Holy Name.
And way past time for it. The Catholic Church has been derelict in it's duty as per it's doctrines. Why? For the money? To keep the worldly masses Catholic? Why hasn't the Catholic Church been true to it's doctrines, starting with the Pope, who according to Catholic doctrine is personally responsible for Church discipline?
The First Vatican Council clearly states:
If anyone thus speaks, that the Roman Pontiff has only the office of inspection or direction, but not the full and supreme power of jurisdiction over the universal Church, not only in things which pertain to faith and morals, but also in those which pertain to the discipline and government of the Church spread over the whole world; or, that he possesses only the more important parts, but not the whole plenitude of this supreme power; or that this power of his is not ordinary and immediate, or over the churches altogether and individually, and over the pastors and the faithful altogether and individually: let him be anathema.
I am not Catholic either. I believe that we have our
differences, but we are all Christians and on the right
side of this attack. We must stand together, and I believe
that all true Christians will.
The goats and the sheep are being clearly seperated.
They identify themselves.
BTW, Fr. Paul Check married my husband and I two years ago!
I'm not Catholic either. But I'll defend their right to be Catholic!
St. Mary, Norwalk. Home of Fr Markey of the Norwalk CT Chapter of the Gospel of Life Society
wonderful place. I’m 75 min away, but I get there on occasion.
I want to give special gratitude and respect to Richard Land and Albert Mohler of the Southern Baptists, Norman Lund and Matthew Harrison of the Lutheran Church (Missouri Synod), and Chuck Colson, who have hitting this hard, like the Men of God they are.
Thank you, brothers in Christ!
