    Governor Palin’s Speech In Greenville, SC. (Photo, Benyamin Korn) Governor Palin spoke at the Extraordinary Women Christian Conference in Greenville, SC on Saturday afternoon. Passionate Faith was the theme, and she gave her own testimony of salvation and shared stories of situations she and her family have walked through that required faith. She also encouraged those in attendance to use their own faith in Jesus Christ to impact the world around them because they, too, were created for the purpose of making a difference. Governor Palin delivered a passionate word full of faith and hope to an arena of women...
  • Went to a Tridentine Latin Mass yesterday...(Vanity)

    My wife and I went to the Tridentine Mass at Immaculate Conception Church(Sleepy Hollow, NY). It has been a very long time since a Mass brought us to tears. The prayers are beautiful, the reverence is palpable. The women had their heads covered, 90% of the men (and boys) wore jacket and tie, the priest's vestments were very traditional (when was the last time you saw a priest wearing a maniple and his biretta), a lot of young families, an altar boy (about 10 years old) and a fairly young priest, both of whom said the Latin prayers as if...
  • Four Liturgical Forms [Ordinariate]

    The Anglo-Catholic ^ | 5/17/10 | Fr. John Hunwicke, SSC
    Some things about the Eucharistic worship of the Ordinariates are already clear. Since Ordinariate clergy will be part of the Roman Rite, they will be able lawfully to use the Ordinary Form in a translation which will have received the recognitio of the Holy See – and I am of course thinking of the new ICEL translation of the Roman Rite. Doubtless many will use this rite, since (particularly in England) very many Anglican Catholic clergy have in the past used the OF. Those who adhered to more ‘Anglican’ forms – the Alternative Service Book or Common Worship – commonly...

    WASHINGTON – President-elect Barack Obama hailed a rare Oval Office gathering of all U.S. presidents as extraordinary on Wednesday, while President George W. Bush wished him well and pledged that the office "transcends the individual." "I just want to thank the president for hosting us," the president-elect said, flanked by former President George H.W. Bush on one side and his son on the other. Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, both smiling broadly, stood with them.

    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Wednesday said Democrat Barack Obama's victory in the presidential race is an "extraordinary accomplishment" that will be great for the country. The Republican governor congratulated Obama, a Democrat, for his historic win and urged Americans of all political stripes to get behind him. "We are ready as a state to do everything that we can to work with the White House and with his administration," Schwarzenegger said during a news conference in favor of a redistricting measure he championed on Tuesday's ballot. The vote on the initiative remained too close to call. Schwarzenegger has left open...

    From the Italian Papal news website Petrus "It is true, we are writing a document-instruction on the correct interpretation of the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum which has liberalized the Mass according to the liturgical books of Saint Pius V, as modified by Blessed John XXIII." Thus says Monsignor Camille Perl, Secretary of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, in an exclusive interview to Petrus, who adds: "Though not a Congregation, we have been granted the faculty to prepare this note for the definition of some aspects of the Papal Motu Proprio as, for example, that of the stable group. We will...

    Moscow Patriarch in favor of Motu Proprio and older Mass CATEGORY: SESSIUNCULUM — Fr. John Zuhlsdorf @ 10:26 am At various times in my articles in The Wanderer, during talks and on this blog I have opined that if we are serious about an authentic ecumenical dialogue, we have to get our liturgical act together: "What must the Orthodox think when they see how we Latins conduct ourselves liturgically?"   At the same time, the solemn Mass in the older use of the Roman Rite is as grand as anything the Easterners do.I see now that the estimable Andrea Tornielli of...

    'AND then how shall I lie through centuries,/And hear the blessed mutter of the Mass," exulted Browning's bishop ordering his tomb at Saint Praxed's church, in the well-known poem. His repose would have come to a raucous end in 1969, when the New Mass was imposed on the Catholic faithful; but he might have relapsed into contentment from next September 14, when the motu proprio of Benedict XVI restoring the Latin 'Tridentine' Mass comes into effect. Not since 1850, when Nicholas Cardinal Wiseman hurled his pastoral letter 'From Out the Flaminian Gate' like a grenade into the heart of the...

It is that sea of tents which houses the Air Force theater hospital, where servicemembers and civilians get the most advanced medical care possible in a combat zone.

  • An 'Extraordinary' Muddle - (Frist, George Allen see "nuclear option" coming soon)

    06/24/2005 4:50:47 PM PDT · by CHARLITE · 4 replies · 350+ views
    The days of the judicial-filibuster compromise are numbered. The scuttlebutt on Capitol Hill these days is that the McCain compromise will vanish as soon as a Supreme Court nomination appears. That's because the so-called compromise has that one huge loophole: It allows Democrats to filibuster (and thereby block an up-or-down vote on) any nominee they define as an "extraordinary" circumstance. And if Democrats' recent behavior is any indication, "extraordinary" will be used as a ruse for discriminating against judges who give even the slightest hint of holding pro-life views or having faith in God. "Any agreement that opens filibusters to...

    Democrats in the U.S. Senate blocked a confirmation vote May 26 on John Bolton’s nomination as United Nations ambassador. “The honeymoon is over,” Sen. George Allen, R.-Va., said as he left the Senate floor after the vote, according to The Washington Post. “It appears that our new start has already come to an end,” Sen. Jim DeMint, R.-S.C., said in a written statement. “I know that many Democrats will say they’re not blocking him, but today’s vote looks like a filibuster, walks like a filibuster and quacks like a filibuster.”
  • 'Catholics Supporting Denial of 'Nutrition and Hydratiion' are not in Communion With Church'

    It is a rare person who has not heard of the recent cruel homicide of the Florida woman, Terri Schiavo. Everyone, it seemed, had a strong opinion on the subject. Yet, despite clear moral teachings on the evils of euthanasia, there are ‘Catholics’ who boast support for euthanasia and doctor-assisted suicide.[1] Are these ‘Catholics’ badly formed and ignorant of their Church’s infallible teachings on the dignity and sacredness of all human life? Is it the fault of Catholic clergy for not preaching the Church’s teachings from the pulpit? In view of the clarity and frequency of the Church’s up-to-date teachings,...

    The Richmond [VA] Richmond Times-Dispatch ^ | February 3, 2005 | Ross Mackenzie
    Perhaps four words — resolve, courage, sacrifice, and extraordinary — best define the outcome of the elections in Iraq. The resolve of President Bush and the people of the United States, the courage and sacrifice of pri- marily the American military and the Iraqi people (as well as the post-Saddam Iraqi leadership), and the extraordinary electoral results. In the run-up to the election, many among the doubters and naysayers practically cheered for failure. They were all negativism, cynicism, and gloom. Remember? From all the predictable sectors the Old Media (which somewhere along the way redefined the terrorists as "insurgents"), Old...

    Save Terri Schiavo by Terence P. Jeffrey Posted Jan 26, 2005 Gov. Jeb Bush and the Florida legislature may not know it, but they acted in the spirit of Sir Philip Sidney when they tried to save the life of Terri Schiavo. When Sidney, a young warrior and poet in the court of Queen Elizabeth I, was mortally wounded in battle, legend has it that he passed up a drink of water in deference to a common soldier who lay nearby in the throes of death. "Thy need is greater than mine," Sidney told the dying man. After his own...

    Tradition in Action | Prof. Plinio Corręa de Oliveira
    I received this question: How should a person who seeks the truth act in a period when bad Popes are reigning, as, for example, during such a time in the Renaissance? Infallibility in the Extraordinary Papal Teaching This question is not very difficult to answer in terms of Catholic doctrine. The source of truth is Revelation, that is Scriptures and Tradition. The Catholic Magisterium gives us the correct interpretation of Revelation. The Popes are infallible only when they teach a doctrine ex cathedra, when they officially invoke their prerogative of infallibility over that doctrine. In such a case, one cannot...

McDougall of the University of Pennsylvania begin the first volume of his acclaimed new American history, Freedom Just Around the Corner (HarperCollins).Not surprisingly, this central event has evoked a wide range of opinions. Tens of millions of immigrants have voted with their feet to slough off prior allegiances and join the boisterous experiment that makes "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" its official goal.The result has been an astounding success.
