  • Have We Made a Mess of the Greatest Holy Spirit Movement in History?

    Christian Post ^ | 04/09/2018 | Michael Brown
    The Charismatic-Pentecostal movement finds itself at a critical juncture. On the one hand, our movement is arguably responsible for the greatest ingathering souls in Church history, with well over 500 million new converts in the last 50 years. On the other hand, abuses abound in our midst, from sexual scandals to financial impropriety and from unaccountable prophecies to doctrinal deviances. It is high time that we do some self-policing. Better that we judge ourselves than be judged by the Lord (see 1 Peter 4:17; 1 Corinthians 11:31-32). I recently signed up to receive emails from a well-known "prophet," curious to...

    Priestly people In priesthood, God utilizes all a priest’s gifts and struggles, but docility to the Holy Spirit isn’t a given Msgr. Charles Pope Question: When a priest is hearing confessions, does the Holy Spirit always enlighten him so that he gives his penitents accurate and insightful guidance? — Peter Tate, Long Beach, California Answer: The word “always” in your question implies an enlightenment that is too absolute. Certainly, the Holy Spirit assists priests in all their duties, including confession; but priests are not robotically connected such that they are mere oracles. The priest, in the celebration of the...

Run in such a way as to get the prize.

  • Muslims are Converting to Christianity in Record Numbers

    We are in a time of the first ever mass conversions of Muslims, Father Mitch Pacwa SJ told me in a phone interview. God is doing a mighty work among them. Pacwa said that mass conversions are happening even in very fundamentalist countries. There is rapidly growing number of conversions especially on the edges of the Muslim world in the western and southern parts of Africa, he said. Africa is now growing predominantly Christian despite crackdowns, Pacwa said. Some of the noteworthy countries he mentioned include Iran, reported to have 3 million Christians, and Indonesia with reports of 2 million...

    Sin takes place after someone purposes to go against the commandments in their mind. The process of sin begins in our head (mind, heart, spirit)....... James 1:14 - But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. James 1:15 - Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.

    The Octave of Pentecost: Missing in Action or Still Available? Msgr. Charles Pope • June 8, 2017 • This week I have been celebrating votive Masses of the Holy Spirit. Why? It is my way of recovering the Octave of Pentecost, lost in 1970.There are certain feasts so important that the Church celebrates them with an Octave. Currently we only have two: Christmas and Easter. Strangely, in 1970, the Octave of Pentecost was dropped. Not only was it dropped, but the very way of enumerating the year was altered as well: the weeks were no longer expressed in relation...

    The Spirit of the Lord Filled the Earth – A Homily for Pentecost Msgr. Charles Pope • June 3, 2017 • What a wondrous and challenging feast we celebrate at Pentecost! A feast like this challenges us because it puts to the lie a lazy, sleepy, hidden, and tepid Christian life. The Lord Jesus said to Apostles, and still says to us, I have come to cast a fire on the earth (Luke 12:49). This is a feast about fire, a transformative, refining, purifying fire that the Lord wants to kindle in us and in this world. It is...

Ye shall be holy unto me: for I the Lord am Holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be Mine. Ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's. Ye are complete in Him, which is the Head of all principality and power.

    MAY 2 EVENING Keep yourselves from idols. My son, give me thine heart. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. Son of man, these men have set up their idols in their heart and put the stumbling block of their iniquity before their face: should I be enquired of at all by them? Mortify ... your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry. They that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare. For the love of money is the root of all evil:...

    APRIL 30 EVENING He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding. The Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. Be ye ... followers of God, as dear children; and walk in love. The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. This is thankworthy, if a...

    APRIL 28 MORNING Behold the Lamb of God. It is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. Wherefore when He cometh into the world, He saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: in burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure. Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me) to do thy will, O God. He was oppressed, and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth; He is brought as a lamb...

The Church of God, which He hath purchased with His own Blood. Christ loved the Church, and gave Himself for it; that He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the Word, that He might present it to Himself a glorious Church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. There appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman...
