    Sister Lucy of Mananthavady Diocese in Wayanad was given two letters prior to this, warning her for her "lifestyle" and for challenging the wrongdoings of the Church. She wrote and published her poems, learnt how to drive, bought a car and even supported the protests against rape accused Bishop Franco Mulakkal. These are Sister Lucy Kalappura’s crimes according to the Franciscan Clarist Congregation (FCC), for which she has been dismissed from the congregation on Monday. Superior General of FCC, Ann Joseph, issued the letter, dated August 5, to Sister Lucy, stating that she "did not show the needed remorse and...

    *** following the landslide victory in the Republican primary by conservative State Sen. Dan Bishop, few are making any big bets on Democrats taking the Charlotte-based 9th District in the special election Sept. 10. Bishop is a solid supporter of President Trump and clearly cut from the swashbuckling mold of many of the conservatives elected to House in the Republican sweeps of 2010 and '14. In surprise results, he rolled up 48 percent of the vote over eight opponents. "Dan Bishop powered his way through the 'redo' Republican primary last night, easily defeating all comers," political analyst Marc Rotterman told...

    A North Carolina legislator best known as the architect of the state’s so-called bathroom bill three years ago is racking up contributions and endorsements as he runs in the repeat of a congressional race marred by a ballot fraud scandal. State Sen. Dan Bishop of Charlotte is a leading contender among 10 candidates in next week’s GOP primary in the 9th Congressional District special election. The state elections board unanimously ordered the new election after Mark Harris, the Republican in last year’s race against Democrat Dan McCready, used a political operative accused of improperly collecting mail-in ballots. Harris opted not...
  • Nicaraguan Bishop to Leave for Rome as Threats Against Him Increase

    MEXICO CITY - A Nicaraguan bishop said he will leave the country indefinitely as concerns for his security increase - presumably the product of his criticisms of the Central American nation’s president. Auxiliary Bishop Silvio Baez Ortega of Managua said April 10 he would travel to Rome - at the request of Pope Francis - after finishing Easter celebrations in Nicaragua, which has convulsed with violence for more than a year. Police and paramilitaries loyal to President Daniel Ortega have crushed protests calling for his ouster, and dissidents have been forced to flee the country. “I give thanks to Pope...

    The president of Ministers Taking a Stand – a national organization of Pastors and Christian leaders addressing moral and spiritual issues in American culture – is calling on the black community to sever its relationship with the “anti-Christian” Democrat Party. Bishop E.W. Jackson says that black Christians should not continue its relationship with a Democrat Party that is increasingly hostile to Christianity. “Years ago I released a video called EXODUS NOW, calling black Christians to come out of the Democrat Party,” Jackson says in the video. “When I did that video there was no gay marriage. Now we have it,...

    The ‘Ethics’ of Trump’s Border Wall A wall would cause harm to immigrants and refugees, all of whom are equal to us in the eyes of God. Is the border wall ethical? President Trump has suggested the wall is moral and those who oppose it immoral. His critics claim the opposite. To answer this, we have to consider its effect on humans. What harm could a border wall cause to immigrants and refugees, all of whom are equal to us in the eyes of God? Some people who cross the border are in desperate search of work to support their...

    A Vatican-appointed Chinese bishop has reportedly been taken into custody by the government and is undergoing “isolation and indoctrination.” This is Peter Shao Zhumin’s fifth arrest in just two years as a bishop. Chinese police have recently been detaining priests loyal to the underground Catholic Church nationwide. Pope Francis appointed Shao Bishop of Wenzhou in September 2016. Shao had previously endured an 11-month detention beginning in September 2006, after he and another priest returned from a pilgrimage to Europe and were charged with “illegal exit.”

    Red Double JOSAPHAT KUNCEWICZ, contemporary with St. Francis de Sales and St. Vincent de Paul, might have been taken for a Greek monk of the eleventh century, or an ascetic of the Thebaid. A stranger to the intellectual culture of the West, he knew only the liturgical books and sacred texts used in his own church; as a priest, an archimandrite, a reformer of his order of St. Basil, and lastly as Archbishop, he combated all his life against the consequences of the schism of Photius, and closed the struggle by culling the palm of martyrdom. Yet all this...

    White Double THREE THOUSAND SIX HUNDRED AND SIXTY CHURCHES dedicated to St. Martin in France alone, and well nigh as many in the rest of the world, bear witness to the immense popularity of the great thaumaturgus. In the country, on the mountains, and in the depth of forests, trees, rocks, and fountains, objects of superstitious worship to our pagan ancestors, received, and in many places still retain, the name of him who snatched them from the dominion of the powers of darkness to restore them to the true God. For the vanquished idols, Roman, Celtic or German, Christ...

    White Double HUMILITAS. This word already stood, crowned with gold, upon his family escutcheon, when Charles was born at the castle of Arona. It had been said of the Borromeos that they knew nothing of humility, except to bear it on their coat of arms: but the time had now come, when the mysterious device was to be justified by the most illustrious scion of that noble family; and when, at the zenith of his greatness, a Borromeo would learn to void his heart of self, in order that God might fill it. Far, however, from abjuring the high-mindedness...

    White Simple SCARCELY HAD TWO CENTURIES elapsed since the triumph of the Cross over Roman idolatry, when Satan began to cry victory once more. While Eutychianism was crowned at Byzantium in the person of Anastasius the Silent, Arianism was rife in the West. Throughout the whole ancient territory of the empire, heresy was supreme, and almost everywhere was persecuting the Church, who had now none but the vanquished for her sons. “But fear not; rather rejoice,” says Baronius at this point in his Annals; “it is Divine Wisdom still delighting to play in the world. The thoughts of men...

    White Double IN 1517 A CRUEL BLOW fell upon the great Augustinian family; Luther, one of its members, raised the cry of revolt which was to be echoed for centuries by every passion. But the illustrious Order, which had unwittingly nurtured this child of evil, was none the less acceptable to God; and He deigned, before long, to demonstrate this, for the consolation of institutes whose very excellence exposes unworthy subjects to more dangerous falls. It was at the First Vespers of All Saints that Luther broached, at Wittenburg, his famous theses against indulgences and the authority of the...

    Red Double JANUARIUS IS EVER PREACHING the Gospel to every creature; for his miraculous blood perpetuates the testimony he bore to Christ. Let those who say they cannot believe unless they see, go to Naples; there they will behold the martyr’s blood, when placed near his head which was cut off seventeen hundred years ago, to liquefy and boil as at the moment it escaped from his sacred veins. No; miracles are not lacking in the Church at the present day. True, God cannot subject himself to the fanciful requirements of those proud men who would dictate to him...

    Red Semidouble THERE IS A PECULIAR BEAUTY in the meeting of these two Saints upon the sacred Cycle. Cyprian, in a famous dispute, was once opposed to the Apostolic See: Eternal Wisdom now offers to the homage of the world, in company with one of the most illustrious successors of St. Peter. Cornelius was, by birth, of the highest nobility; witness his tomb, lately discovered in the family crypt, surrounded by the most honorable names in the patrician ranks. The elevation of a descendant of the Scipios to the sovereign Pontificate linked the past grandeurs of Rome to her...

Like you, I once sought with feverish eagerness; and this exterior world could not satisfy my burning desire. But, by the divine grace, which fed my anguish, at length she, whose name I then knew not, appeared to me, more beautiful than the sun, sweeter than balm. As she approached, how gentle was her countenance, how peace-inspiring her voice, saying to me: O thou, whose...
