  • The Nature of the Mass and the need for Sacrifice

    The natural law requires sacrificeIn the first place it is to be seen that the Natural Law requires us to sacrifice. Saint Thomas states in the first place that there are three main types of laws. There is first and foremost human laws (positive laws), there is the Natural Law, and lastly there is the Divine and Eternal laws. It is precisely the Natural Law that we will focus in for this specific article. The natural law is basically the “structure which God creates in man so that he inclines man to specific types of actions. He designs man to...

  • America: Will we be inspired by Sparta or Calvary?

    La Salette Journey ^ | April 17, 2012 | Paul Melanson
    It can no longer be denied that America has become a "seething cesspool of filth and corruption." America has become a haunt of demons and of every foul spirit. Today, even those who present themselves as "Catholic" have lost the sense of sin. Archbishop Fulton Sheen warned that, "Man is powerless to resist evil if he does not recognize it as such, and deceives himself when he becomes indifferent to evil; his whole personality immediately begins to dissolve, for the power of conscience is inseparably bound up with the denunciation of evil. And this is precisely what our world is...
  • Calvary or Gethsemane? The Atonement According to Mormonism

    04/05/2012 1:18:43 PM PDT · by Colofornian · 51 replies
    Each spring millions of Christians celebrate the death and resurrection of their Lord. In light of the fact that this is one of the most important events within the Christian tradition, it is important for us to examine and understand the spiritual significance of Christ's sacrifice in light of the teachings of past LDS leaders. Philippians 2:7 tells us that Christ made Himself of no reputation and took "the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men." Hebrews 2:17 tells us this was done in order that He might make "reconciliation for the sins of the...
  • Is Sin Really 'That Bad'?...(Holy Week,2011)

    Behold, my servant shall deal prudently, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high. As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men: So shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider.(Isaiah 52:13-15)There are two Christian doctrines which utterly offend the sensibilities of modern man ; one is the Cross, and the other is the lake of...

    This is a beautiful poem written by Edward Shillito, a British veteran of the horrors of World War I JESUS OF THE SCARS If we have never sought, we seek Thee now: Thine eyes burn through the dark, our only stars; We must have sight of thorn pricks on Thy brow; We must have thee, O Jesus of the scars. The heavens frighten us; they are too calm; In all the universe we have no place; Our wounds are hurting us, where is the balm? Lord Jesus, by Thy scars we claim Thy grace. If when the doors are shut,...
  • No cavalry coming for McCain

    Politico ^ | October 22, 2008 | Jonathan Martion
    For the GOP, the cavalry apparently isn’t coming. Republicans attuned to conservative third-party efforts say that with less than two weeks to go until Election Day, the prospects for any 11th-hour, anti-Obama ad campaign are highly unlikely. Many in the party, including inside the McCain campaign, have held out hope that a deep-pocketed benefactor would emerge to bankroll ads in the campaign’s final days – spots that might, for example, resurrect the most incendiary clips from the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. But thanks largely to lack of passion for McCain within the conservative base, diminished hopes that he can win and...

    Yea, dogs are round about me; a company of evildoers encircle me; they have pierced my hands and feet--I can count all my bones. (Ps 22:16-17) "But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that made us whole, and with his stripes we are healed. " (Isaiah 53:5) Eight days later, his disciples were again in the house, and Thomas was with them.  The doors were shut, but Jesus came and stood among them, and said, "Peace be with you."  Then he said to Thomas, "Put your finger here,...

    Zenit News Agency ^ | April 6, 2007
    VATICAN CITY, APRIL 6, 2007 (Zenit.org).- According to the preacher of the Pontifical Household, the women present at Calvary accompanying Jesus were more than pious individuals, they were "mothers of courage." Capuchin Father Raniero Cantalamessa delivered that message today in his Good Friday homily at the Celebration of the Lord's Passion, in St. Peter's Basilica. The preacher of the Pontifical Household, speaking of the important role of women in Christianity said: "There has been animated discussion for quite some time about who it was that wanted Jesus' death: Was it the Jews or Pilate? One thing is certain in any...

    The Better Promises The Letter to the Hebrews teaches that Jesus’s Ascension was necessary to complete God’s saving plan, which included our Lord’s perfecting the Day of Atonement sacrifices by entering a sanctuary not made with human hands, a heavenly sanctuary, to atone for the world’s sins (Heb 9:24, 10:12). The Letter to the Hebrews elaborates on the inadequacy of the Old Covenant offerings, referring to both the daily Tamid offerings and the annual Day of Atonement sacrifices. Paul teaches that Israel’s need to slaughter and offer new animals every day (cf. Heb 7:27) and every year (cf. Heb 9:25)...

    Holy Rosary Parish Bulletin ^ | unknown | Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
    T he Sermon on the Mount is so much at variance with all that our world holds dear that the world will crucify anyone who tries to live up to its values. Because Christ preached them, He had to die. Calvary was the price He paid for the Sermon on the Mount. Only mediocrity survives. Those who call black black, and white white, are sentenced for intolerance. Only the grays live. Let Him who says, “Blessed are the poor in spirit,” come into the world that believes in the primacy of the economic; let Him stand in the market place...

    Home Email This Article The Three Crosses: The Bad Thief, or the Cross Rejected    FR. LEONARD PUECH The three crosses on Calvary, if we look at them with attention, will teach us important lessons. The two thieves crucified with Jesus represent all sinful mankind, likewise condemned to death. Looking at the three crosses of Calvary, we shall learn what our attitude to our own cross can be, and what will result if we (1) reject it as did the bad thief, (2) accept it as the good thief did, or (3) embrace it with Jesus. Three crosses stand...
