    White Double IT IS THE FEAST of the austere reformer of the 11th century, Peter Damian, the precursor of the holy Pontiff Gregory the Seventh, that we are called upon to celebrate today. To him is due a share of that glorious regeneration which was effected at that troubled period when judgment had to begin at the House of God. The life he had led under the Monastic Rule had fitted him for the great contest. So zealously did he withstand the disorders and abuses of his times that we may attribute to him, at least in great measure,...

    The cardinal who heads the Vatican's Congregation for the Clergy suggests in a new book that the Catholic Church should consider ordaining married men in some cases. The Church shouldn’t be “closed or rigid” as it considers this topic, Prefect of the Congregation for the Clergy Cardinal Beniamino Stella wrote in Italian in All Francis’ Men, just released Monday. The Catholic Herald first translated Stella’s proposition. In remote places “there is acute suffering because of a real ‘sacramental emergency,’ which the few priests present are not able to accommodate,” Stella wrote. “Continuing to maintain their family and jobs and receiving...

    "Clarify the unclear and do not obscure the clear" Cardinal Gerhard Müller on over 25 years of the World Catechism and the question of whether "Amoris laetitia" is Thomistic. Eminence, the Catechism of the Catholic Church is now a quarter-century old. It is always said that the theologians in Germany had at that time been somewhat disdainful and judged it as handed down from above. You were a dogmatic theologian in Munich at that time. How did you receive the new Compendium of the Faith from Rome in 1992?

    Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, the key figure in the production of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, sees the Catholic book of faith 25 years after its publication as a success project. In the German-speaking world alone, old prejudices continued, and the work has "not yet caught on in depth," the Viennese archbishop said on Tuesday in the interview with the news agency "Kathpress". Recent theological debates, such as the letter "Amoris laetitia", should be looked at in more detail with regard to the Catechism promulgated by Pope John Paul II on 11 October 1992, Schönborn demanded.

Carlo Caffarra dies at 79 BOLOGNA (ChurchMilitant.com) - Cardinal Carlo Caffarra, one of the signers of the Dubia and former head of the archdiocese of Bologna, Italy, has died at the age of 79. Caffarra, along with Cdl. Raymond Burke, Cdl. Walter Brandmüller and Cdl. Joachim Meisner sent a document, called Dubia ("questions" in Latin) in September 2016 in response to Pope Francis' document Amoris Laetitia. They asked the Holy Father to clear up some points in paragraphs 300–305 in Chapter 8 which liberal bishops have been using to allow the civilly divorced and remarried to receive Holy Communion...

Tobin rejected Governor Pence’s authority (in CCC 2241.2) to "make the exercise of the right to immigrate subject to various juridical conditions” and had Catholic Charities settle the Syrian refugee family. Gov. Pence told media he “disagreed with the Church”--but wasn’t it actually Tobin who “disagreed with the Church”? 2 – Now-Cardinal Farrell’s Dallas Catholic Charities housed Abdul Razak Ali Artan, the Ohio terrorist, when he first came to the U.S., even though Governor Abbott opposed the settlement of refugees until they were fully vetted.

    VATICAN CITY, November 10, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Cardinal Raymond Burke said Donald Trump's election as U.S. president is a "clear sign of the will of the people" and a victory for the pro-life cause. Burke is the patron of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta and the former Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura, the Vatican’s highest court. He is one of the most well-known defenders of life, family, and Catholic orthodoxy. In an interview with the National Catholic Register's Ed Pentin, Burke said Trump's Catholic advisory committee and the fact that "he tends to associate himself with very sound advisers"...

    You might say—many commentators have said—that with the quick Vatican smackdown of Cardinal Sarah's proposal for ad orientem worship, Rome has spoken and the case is closed. I disagree. On the contrary, Cardinal Sarah has reopened a much-needed discussion about how to increase reverence in the liturgy. His address to a conference in London caused what that city's Catholic Herald is describing in this week's cover headline as A liturgical earthquake. Ten days ago no one was talking about celebrating Mass ad orientem. Now that option is being widely discussed, even in secular media outlets. Cardinal Sarah was not issuing...

    Cardinal Robert Sarah made the comments in an exclusive interview with Famille ChrétienneThe Vatican’s liturgy chief has called on priests to celebrate Mass facing east. In an interview with the French Catholic magazine Famille Chrétienne, Cardinal Robert Sarah said that the Second Vatican Council did not require priests to celebrate Mass facing the people. This way of celebrating Mass, he said, was “a possibility, but not an obligation”. Readers and listeners should face each other during the Liturgy of the Word, he said. “But as soon as we reach the moment when one addresses God – from the Offertory onwards...

    The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is a "satanic terrorist group." Those were the words of Cdl. Kurt Koch of Germany on Tuesday at the International Ecumenical Congress held in his country near Stuttgart. The German cardinal, one of the few remaining orthodox prelates in Germany, told his audience it's wrong to believe violent persecutions of Christians are a thing of the past. Instead, he pointed out how there are plenty of martyrs for the Faith today, specifically because of ISIS. "In about 25 countries Christians are under threat of life and limb," observed Cdl. Koch. Hence, it is...

    The Prefect of the CDF, Cardinal Gerhard Müller, has criticized in Regensburg on Tuesday a "climate of the German claim to leadership for the whole universal Church". At a book presentation, he pointed out the high number of people leaving the church, the deserted confessionals and empty seminars and religious houses in Germany. Often he has been asked from where the establishment of the so-called "German Church" derives the claim to be pacemaker for the universal Church with all the symptoms of a dramatic decline precisely on questions of sexual morality and the Catholic teaching on marriage.

    In the past week or so, the outright mean, un-Christian-like actions of two bishops, Cardinal Sean O’Malley of Boston and Bishop Paul Bootkoski of Metuchen have been all over the news. If you have time, you should write or call both of them and ask them to apologize for their actions that have harmed innocent people. First, there was Cardinal O’Malley firing a janitor, a pastor, a school principal and a second-grade teacher because the janitor used the same bathroom that an elementary school student used and no one reported the fact that no crime and nothing inappropriate happened to...
