    Italian bishop seems to approve Communion for some Catholics in adulterous unions ROME, December 12, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) — The doctrinal dispute over Amoris Laetitia is in the air again this Advent, as one Italian bishop is inviting divorced and civilly remarried Catholics to begin an “ecclesial journey” that he says will lead, in some cases, to access to the sacraments of Penance and the Holy Eucharist.  In an Advent letter to the faithful of his diocese, Bishop Gianmarco Busca of the northern Italian diocese of Mantua has said “the faithful who are divorced and remarried, or who live stably in a...
  • Why men should give their wives a cheat pass this Christmas

    When I told my husband I was interviewing a writer who thinks men should give their wives a ‘cheat pass’ this Christmas, he understandably had some questions. “How would the wife find someone suitable for the occasion?” he wondered. (We were talking in the abstract, of course, and I deemed it safer to treat this as rhetorical.) I assured him that yes, it was all very unfeasible, and concluded he’ll more likely gift me jewellery.
  • Joe and Mika Got Married Over the Weekend...and Maybe Broke Federal Law?

    "Morning Joe" lovebirds Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski wed last Saturday in a private ceremony at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. They apparently pulled some strings to secure the location. Like, just about breaking federal law. It was the first time a wedding ceremony had been held in that spot since the building opened in 1935. Brzezinski told Vanity Fair that the couple chose the hallowed American location after attending a previous event there, saying, “It makes sense now more than ever, given what we stand for as a couple, what we do for a living, and what we’re worried...

    Voter support for Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court is down in the wake of Christine Ford’s assault allegations, as more believe her than him. Currently, 40 percent of voters would confirm Kavanaugh, while 50 percent oppose him, according to a Fox News poll. Last month, views split 45-46 percent (August 19-21)...White voters divide by education: those with a college degree believe Ford by a 14-point margin, while those without a degree side with Kavanaugh by 17...The Fox News poll is based on landline and cell phone interviews with 1,003 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide and was conducted...

    In the summer of 2008, Bill Hybels stood in front of thousands of pastors and other church leaders gathered at Willow Creek Community Church and admitted his megachurch had failed. “We made a mistake,” he told the crowd gathered for the 2008 Global Leadership Summit (GLS). A detailed Willow study had found that the church had helped many people find new faith in Jesus, but had failed to teach them how to practice the spiritual disciplines needed to grow their faith. He vowed the megachurch would do be better in the future. Ten years later, Willow Creek’s leaders confessed even...

    It is now known that Donald Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen secretly recorded a telephone conversation with Trump in which a cash payment to former Playboy model Karen McDougal was discussed – though what doesn't seem clear is that if McDougal received a $150,000 payment from National Enquirer publisher American Media, Inc., for what purpose was the fee Trump and Cohen discussed – an indirect payment to AMI, or a second payment to McDougal? A February 16, 2018 NY Post story states that McDougal wrote an eight-page handwritten memorandum that someone named John Crawford shared with Ronan Farrow. When Farrow...

    Video at link. Peter Strzok of the FBI (Screen Capture) (CNSNews.com) - FBI Agent Peter Strzok, who worked on the Hillary Clinton email investigation and the investigation of possible ties between Russia and the Trump campaign testified under oath in a congressional hearing on Thursday that FBI agents can engage in some types of adultery. Strzok was asked “what action” he would take if he found out one of his subordinates was conducting an “extramarital affair.” “It depends,” said Strzok. “If it was against the FBI’s regulation in terms of if it was somebody in their chain of command, above...

    Pope Francis personally thanked Lisbon Cardinal Manuel Clemente for propagating the immoral teachings contained in Amoris Laetita in a Lenten letter to the Lisbon priests. Clemente follows the heterodox Buenos Aires guidelines approved by Francis. Francis’ June 26 letter to the "beloved Brother Cardinal" was published by Clemente on July 12 on Patriarcado-Lisboa.pt. Francis calls Clemente's controversial text a "profound reflexion" which "fills me with joy". Although Clemente promotes sin, Francis calls him a "shepherd who accompanies the faithful" [into the abyss] and encourages Clemente "to integrate the fragility [adultery] which shows itself in many forms in couples”. At the...

    Hearing with FBI agent goes off the rails after GOP congressman asks how many times he lied to his wife about cheating on her A congressional hearing devolved into chaos Thursday afternoon when Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas attacked FBI agent Peter Strzok over his extramarital affair with FBI lawyer Lisa Page. While accusing Strzok of lying under oath, Gohmert said, "I can't help but wonder when I see you looking there with a little smirk, how many times did you look so innocently into your wife's eye and lied to her about Lisa Page?" The House chamber quickly broke...

    Rabbi Ya'akov Yakir, of the “Torat Hamedina” (“Torah of the State”) program at the Beit Orot Yeshiva, published a study that found that under Supreme Court Chief Justice Aharon Barak, the state recognized adultery as a bond that was no less legitimate than marriage. This means that if, for example, a married woman maintains an intimate relationship with a man married to another woman, the man may sue the woman for the alleged commitment she made to him in the context of their relationship, or vice versa. "There are two families here," he explained. "We claim in the study that...

    Vatican Pressured Polish Bishops Into Implementing Immorality The Vatican has pressured the Polish bishops into accepting Amoris Laetitia. According to LaFedeQuotidiana.it (June 29), the Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin asked the Polish bishops, “Do you really want to break the unity with the Pope? Are you aware of this?” Parolin’s pressure was accompanied by activities of the Apostolic Nuncio in Warsaw, Archbishop Salvatore Pennacchio, who at the order of the Vatican tried to persuade the bishops' assembly and individual bishops, especially those opposed to Amoris Laetitia, into accepting doctrines which contradict Christ and the teaching of the Church.

    In his Santa Marta homily given earlier today, the God of Surprises (aka Jorge Bergoglio) once again took the occasion to mangle Sacred Scripture in order to justify his departure from the Catholic faith; in this particular case, as it concerns marriage.Today’s victim text was the Novus Ordo Gospel reading taken from Mark 10:1-12 – familiar words that bear reconsidering:Jesus came into the district of Judea and across the Jordan. Again crowds gathered around him and, as was his custom, he again taught them. The Pharisees approached him and asked, “Is it lawful for a husband to divorce his wife?”...

    A retired Malaysian bishop has joined an appeal on behalf of traditional teaching about morality and the sacraments.Bishop Emeritus Anthony Lee Kok Hin, who retired from the diocese of Miri in 2013, endorsed the Pastoral Appeal, which has been signed by 250 priests in 39 countries since it was launched on May 2.In their latest statement, the organisers say that the statement has been “mistakenly cast” as a “veiled criticism” of Pope Francis’s Amoris Laetitia.Nevertheless, the statement, which asks bishops to publicly reaffirm Church teaching and condemn errors, refers indirectly to controversies which have followed Amoris.For instance, the pope’s document...

    Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee: know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and bitter, that thou hast forsaken the Lord thy God, and that my fear is not in thee, saith the Lord God of hosts.For of old time I have broken thy yoke, and burst thy bands; and thou saidst, I will not transgress; when upon every high hill and under every green tree thou wanderest, playing the harlot. (Jeremiah 2:19-20)Jeremiah 2 and 3 continue the same themes as Hosea; Jahweh as the rejected husband, Israel as the promiscuous...

The beginning of the word of the Lord by Hosea. And the Lord said to Hosea, Go, take unto thee a wife of whoredoms and children of whoredoms: for the land hath committed great whoredom, departing from the Lord.

    ROME - The changes in canon law Pope Francis made to ensure that marriage annulment cases were handled more quickly, more pastorally and with less expense mean that some changes should be made in the way Church law is taught, said the Congregation for Catholic Education.The congregation published an instruction May 3 urging Catholic universities to strengthen their canon law programs and urging bishops to send more of their priests “and, if possible, laypeople” to Catholic universities to earn canon law degrees.The new rules, which go into effect for the 2019-2020 academic year, require all students in what is...

    Cardinal Cupich has been holding seminars on implementing Amoris Laetitia. These “New Momentum Conferences” will “provide formative pastoral programs.” I wonder whether these seminars will include anything for reluctantly divorced persons. No one else seems to be doing anything for abandoned spouses. Perhaps Cardinal Cupich and his friends will step up to the plate.The public, including many Catholics, has the impression that no-fault divorce allows two sensible and mature adult people to agree to end their marriage. We imagine that the state must not interfere in this mutual decision. No one should cry over the spilt milk of a “dead...

    St. Augustine had views on marriage, sin, adultery,  and conscience directly contrary to those of Jorge Bergolgio as stated in his proclamation Amoris Laetitia (“AL” below). Passages quoted below from the works of St. Augustine, (henceforth “St. Augustine”) and Jorge Bergoglio (henceforth “Jorge”) show how widely the views of Jorge depart from, and in many instances contradict, Church teaching.   Can there be eternal condemnation ? Jorge:  “The way of the Church is not to condemn anyone for ever” (AL, 296).St. Augustine:  “The Death of the Wicked Shall Be Eternal in the Same Sense as the Life of the Saints.This...

    Bishop Davies said that mortal sin, or 'a lifestyle in contradiction with our Christian calling', must be confessed and repented before receiving the EucharistReceiving Holy Communion is “the most radical call to holiness” that any person can encounter, the Bishop of Shrewsbury will say in a pastoral letter this coming weekend.Bishop Mark Davies will warn them against viewing the Blessed Sacrament in terms of “secular inclusiveness” as this diminishes its true significance to little more than a “token of our hospitality”.Catholics must realise instead that through the Real Presence, the gift of Christ’s Body and Blood is the means...
