    September 24, 2018 Monday of the Twenty-fifth Week in Ordinary Time Reading 1 Prv 3:27-34 Refuse no one the good on which he has a claimwhen it is in your power to do it for him.Say not to your neighbor, “Go, and come again,tomorrow I will give,” when you can give at once. Plot no evil against your neighbor,against one who lives at peace with you.Quarrel not with a man without cause,with one who has done you no harm. Envy not the lawless manand choose none of his ways:To the LORD the perverse one is an abomination,but with the...

    Church Militant ^ | Feb 2018 | Rodney Pelletier, William Slattery
    HEROISM AND GENIUS is the dramatic flesh-and-blood account of the real men who built the West's civilization during the dark centuries after the collapse of the Roman Empire. It tells the inspiring story of how these towering giants of mankind, their minds imbued with the genius of Christianity, integrated the achievements of the Jewish people, Greeks, Romans, Arabs and Germanics, creating a new society that embodied the Catholic vision of God and man, time and eternity. Although it highlights the role of priests, there are countless interesting insights into the formidable laymen and women who also shaped the new social...

    Reuters ^ | Sep 2018 | Mark Hosenbell
    Former Trump White House adviser Steve Bannon is helping to craft the curriculum for a leadership course at a right-wing Roman Catholic institute in Italy, stepping up his efforts to influence conservative thinking in the church. Benjamin Harnwell, director of the Dignitatis Humanae Institute based in a mountaintop monastery not far from Rome, told Reuters Bannon had been helping to build up the institute for about half of its eight-year life. Cardinal Raymond Burke, a leading Vatican conservative who is president of the Institute’s board of advisers, said Bannon would be playing a leading role there. Burke told Reuters he...

    Asking a Crucial Question: A Homily for the 25th Sunday of the Year Msgr. Charles Pope • September 22, 2018 • In the Sunday Gospel, the Lord Jesus is asking a crucial question. The word crucial here is selected carefully; it comes from the Latin cruces, meaning “cross.” Indeed, looming over this entire gospel reading is the cross. In it, Jesus makes the second prediction of His passion, death, and resurrection. It is in the context of this teaching that the Lord asks the “crucial” question of us: What is most central in your life? Let’s look at this...

    I Read GOODBYE GOOD MEN Over 16 Years Ago. Described the Catholic Church and Roots of Its Sexual Sin. Eighteen years ago Michael Rose wrote GOODBYE GOOD MEN describing the recruiting of homosexual men into the priest hood and rejection of conservative heterosexual men. Certainly what he said was true then and continues to unfold. This information was available then and earlier. What happened? So I am puzzled why this information is so hot right now?

    This month, the doors will open at the Institute of Social, Economic and Political Sciences (ISSEP) in Lyon, France’s third-biggest city. It will, its high-profile backers hope, become a breeding ground for the country’s next generation of conservative thinkers and leaders. It also marks the return to public life of Marion Maréchal, once the great hope of the French far right, who is the college’s director. She said the idea was to train a new crop of politicians and officials to replace the “visionless” Parisian elite. She was the youngest member of France’s parliament before stepping away from politics in...

Charles Pope September 23, 2018 Question: As a product of Jesuit education, I learned that if someone is not entitled to know the truth, then it is permissible to lie in order that the truth not be revealed to them, especially if they will use that information to harm others.

    Franciscan Media Image: St. Matthew and the Angel | Guido Reni Saint Matthew Saint of the Day for September 21 (c. 1st Century)  Saint Matthew’s Story Matthew was a Jew who worked for the occupying Roman forces, collecting taxes from other Jews. The Romans were not scrupulous about what the “tax farmers” got for themselves. Hence the latter, known as “publicans,” were generally hated as traitors by their fellow Jews. The Pharisees lumped them with “sinners” (see Matthew 9:11-13). So it was shocking to them to hear Jesus call such a man to be one of his intimate followers.Matthew...

    Knowing the Bad News Unlocks the Good News Msgr. Charles Pope • September 20, 2018 • Christ in the House of Simon, Dirk Bouts (1440)Some people suggest that the Church should speak less of sin and instead emphasize positive things. After all, it is said that one can attract more flies with honey than with vinegar. In that vein, we in the Church have been collectively de-emphasizing sin to a large degree for decades, and yet our churches have been getting emptier and emptier. Maybe this is because people are just a little more complicated than the flies in...

    FR ROBERT ALTIER’S TRUTHFUL HOMILY ABOUT THE CURRENT CRISIS IN THE CHURCH The following is the transcription of the August 19, 2018 homily given at the Church of St. Raphael in Crystal, Minnesota by Fr. Robert Altier. In the second reading today St. Paul tells us that we have to make the most of our opportunity because the days are evil. We aren’t just simply living in days that are evil, we are living in the days that Isaiah spoke about, the days when they will call evil good and good evil. And we have been brainwashed into thinking that...

    All God’s Children and Nothing Greater Msgr. Charles Pope • September 19, 2018 • We often get anxious about rather petty notions related to our ranking relative to one another. On this topic, the Lord teaches an important lesson in the Gospel of Luke:An argument arose among the disciples about which of them was the greatest.Jesus realized the intention of their hearts and took a child and placed him by his side and said to them, “Whoever receives this child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me. For the one who...
