  • Possible Eucharistic Miracle in Poland

    An interesting report of a possible Eucharistic Miracle now being investigated in Poland. The link is to the discussion and comments from Fr. Zuhlsdorf's blog. The account is a translation into English by a Polish diocesan official, not from an official translation, so the English comes across as a bit "irregular" at times. Anyway, the account can be found here: http://wdtprs.com/blog/2009/10/possible-eucharistic-miracle-in-poland/

    Well, there I was at the appointed time and place: 1PM, February 28, 2009, at the Barking Crab, 88 Sleeper St. Boston MA. Seems that no one else was there, though. When I asked for the manager to inquire about the tea party, or the listed hosts for it, The Stucks, he had no idea what I was talking about. By this time, it was 1:10 PM. The crowd that was there was just the usual yuppies and tourists with kids; they had "the look" about them that they would not be interested in this sort of thing, and the...

    A friend of mine recently put me up to trying out for a radio show. We both assumed it was in a typical airwave format. But it turned-out to be "internet radio," instead. Anyway, I got one of the slots that opened up, and I now am in the eighth week of airing a half-hour show in my talk-show format. Since the series is still fairly new, I am still canvassing some pretty broad topics, in an overview approach to each. I hope to start narrowing the focus in the next few weeks, however. As a general rule, the show...

    The traditional Latin Mass – effectively banned by Rome for 40 years – is to be reintroduced into every Roman Catholic parish in England and Wales, the senior Vatican cardinal in charge of Latin liturgy said at a press conference in London today. In addition, all seminaries will be required to teach trainee priests how to say the old Mass so that they can celebrate it in all parishes. Catholic congregations throughout the world will receive special instruction on how to appreciate the old services, formerly known as the Tridentine Rite.
  • 9th Circuit Declares Parenting Unconstitutional

    On Nov. 2, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals handed down a stunning decision that parents do not have the right to determine when or what the public schools can teach their children about sexuality or moral behavior. When parents sued that not being allowed to determine whether or not such content was appropriate for their 6 year-olds violated their parental rights, they were told by the courts that "We also hold that parents have no due process or privacy rights to override the determination of public schools as to the information to which their children will be exposed while...
