    Behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces, even the dung of your solemn feasts; and one shall take you away with it. And ye shall know that I have sent this commandment unto you, that my covenant might be with Levi, saith the LORD of hosts.My covenant was with him of life and peace; and I gave them to him for the fear wherewith he feared me, and was afraid before my name. The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace...
  • "The Messenger of the Covenant" (Advent sermon on Malachi 3:1-7b)

    "The Messenger of the Covenant" (Malachi 3:1-7b) Which messenger is which? There are two messengers mentioned in our text for today from Malachi 3--in fact, three messengers, if you include Malachi himself. So which messenger is which? We'll try to explain and untangle all this now, and we'll direct our attention especially to the most important of these messengers, namely, "The Messenger of the Covenant." The messenger of the covenant--he certainly is prominent in our text. But there's a messenger who comes before him, and he's mentioned too--that's the messenger who will prepare the way before the Lord. So that...

    The Sins of God’s People As Stated in the Prophet Malachi Msgr. Charles Pope • November 3, 2015 • In yesterday’s post, we considered the sins of the priests (and they were numerous enough). Today we examine the sins of the people that the Lord sets forth in the Book of Malachi. Here, too, please understand that not everyone is guilty of all of these things. However, they are common human sins and sinful attitudes. So consider this inspired list (for it is from the Lord) and pray for conversion and repentance, for the picture here is all too familiar.I....

    Pro-lifers have gathered in Montgomery, Alabama where they are protesting abortion in that city. Also there are groups of abortion supporters who have taken to social media to mock efforts of the anti-abortion folks. The clinic: Reproductive Health Services Their Twitter Page Hangout: Pink House Defenders A few hours ago the pro-choice defenders began tweeting, wheres Malachi? Malachi was a 21 week aborted baby boy that was found frozen in a jar with three other little children at an abortion mill in Dallas, Texas, in February 1993. Malachi was buried at the Cemetery of the Innocents in Dallas, Texas, in...

    The Fire Next Time – A Homily for the Second Sunday of Advent By: Msgr. Charles PopeAn old spiritual says, God gave Noah the rainbow sign, No more water, but the fire next time. The second reading in today’s Mass speaks to us of the “Fire next time” and again reminds of the need to be ready for the coming of the Lord. This homily focuses especially on that Second reading wherein St Peter reminds us of a passing that will come for us all, sooner or later. And since Advent is a time to prepare by prayer and repentance, we do...
  • The Dramatic and Final Words of the Old Testament. A fitting close to the Advent Season

    In this, the final full day of Advent, we read the closing words of the Old Testament, from the book of the prophet Malachi. These closing words, these final lines of the Old Testament are nothing short of astonishing. Terms like riveting and stunning also come to mind.While they ring with a promise, they also warn of great peril to those who do not lay hold of the promise. The words come forth almost like iron pellets. And though there is the way through, but it is only by being refined as through fire and by becoming fire.Consider the words:...

    Malachy's Prophecies - The Last 10 Popes 1. The Burning Fire. PIUS X. 1903-1914. This Pope showed a burning passion for spiritual renewal in the Church. 2. Religion Laid Waste. BENEDICT XV. 1914-1922. During this Pope's reign saw Communism move into Russia where religious life was laid waste, and World War I with the death of millions of Christians who were carnage in Flanders Field and elsewhere. 3. Unshaken Faith. PIUS XI. 1922-1939. This Pope faced tremendous pressure from fascist and sinister powers in Germany and Italy, but he was an outspoken critic of Communism and Fascism which enraged Hitler....

And what about those days leading up to it? What will they be like? And what does all this mean for us in the here and now? Thats where our lessons this morning are taking us. You see, its November.

  • Lionizing an Anti-war Activist's Suicide

    11/27/2006 7:55:34 AM PST · by Mobile Vulgus · 15 replies · 829+ views ^ | 11/28/06 | Warner Todd Huston
    A man poured gasoline on himself on November 3rd and on the side of the road on Chicago's Kennedy Expressway he lit himself on fire. It caused a traffic jam, but little else. In fact, no one even knew who the suicide was for several days until a friend of his got a letter sent him by the dead man just before his final day. And still, few cared. It turns out this was supposed to be some kind of anti-war statement akin to a Buddhist monk's self-immolation in Saigon during Vietnam. Sadly, this protester didn't seem to know that...

    MOBILE, Ala. - A medical team at the University of South Alabama's Children's & Women's Hospital have closely monitored the progress of a newborn who weighed only 10 ounces at birth on Feb. 15. His parents, Phillip and Monica Whitlock, said tiny Malachi Andreas Whitlock is so far holding his own. "I feel he's got 100 percent chance of survival," his father said. They said they chose the name Malachi because it's one of the smallest books of the Bible, and Malachi means "messenger of God." "He's so small, and he's sent a message to us of what love is,"...
