  • Dozens of US Bishops Approve SSPX Weddings

    The Catholic Herald (UK) ^ | 3/21/19 | Michael Warren Davis
    If an American diocese granted permission for the Society of St Pius X (SSPX) to celebrate nuptial Masses within their territory, you might assume a reasonably well-informed layman would hear something about it. Yet, unless you read the Archdiocese of New Orleans’s newspaper, it probably slipped your notice. On March 9, the Clarion Herald published an article by Fr Garrett O’Brien announcing that “Archbishop Gregory Aymond approved a new policy for marriages witnessed by SSPX priests in our area.” According to the archdiocese’s newly updated policy manual, SSPX priests “are able to receive the faculty to witness marriages within the...

    Ashgabat (Agenzia Fides) - "When I arrived in Turkmenistan, 22 years ago, there were no Catholic faithful. Over time, I saw a community rise before my eyes. Being a witness of this birth was a great grace of God, because it means having participated in a difficult labour but full of hope: we live the experience of the Apostolic Church, which starts from scratch and is based on the strength of the Word of God". This is what Fr. Andrzej Madej, Polish priest of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate (OMI) and Superior of the Missio sui iuris of Turkmenistan told...

    Behold Israel YouTube Channel ^ | March 24, 2019 | Amir Tsarfati
    The fact that the Golan Heights, with its oil wealth, belongs to Israel has economic implications for Russia, which makes it of great importance in the unfolding of future events. America is more involved than ever in that particular area of the world. The opposition Israeli media is doing the same thing that the American media does with Trump, and trying to discredit Netanyahu before the election on April 9. The peace plan will not involve the trading of Israeli land for peace. The Sunni Arab world is involved in the proposed solution. The situation in New Zealand as another...
  • A Thief in the Night (4 part film series)

    Mustard Seed Film Production ^ | 1972 | Donald W. Thompson
    A Thief In The Night is the first in a four part series of a Biblical Prophecy Evangelical production. The central focus of the series is the difficulties faced when the main characters of the film wake up to find that they've missed out on the rapture and find themselves left behind. The world then implements the mark of the beast prophesied in Rev: chapter 13. Perhaps you've never been told of this in church. If you've always been curious of the rapture and the great tribulation, I highly recommend this series.
  • Can We ‘Follow’ Our Bishops?: German Catholics React to Bishops’ Push to Overhaul Sexual Teaching

    LifeSite News ^ | 3/20/19 | Maike Hickson
    March 20, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Catholic priests and laity in Germany are indignant over the March 11-14 spring assembly of the German bishops and their decision to start a “synodal” discussion about the Church's sexual morality and priestly celibacy in light of the current clerical sex abuse crisis. Many of them see this discussion as a dangerous development that could result in a schism. As LifeSiteNews has reported, the German bishops had unanimously decided, at the end of their spring assembly in Lingen, to start a “synodal path” in their discussions (yet still without an existing synod itself) on the...

    Vatican City, Mar 19, 2019 / 12:01 pm (CNA).- Pope Francis declared Tuesday the martyrdom of seven Greek-Catholic bishops killed by the communist regime in Romania in the mid-20th century. Bishops Valeriu Traian Frentiu, Vasile Aftenie, Ioan Suciu, Tito Livio Chinezu, Ioan Balan, Alexandru Rusu, and Iuliu Hossu were declared to have been killed “in hatred of the faith” between 1950 and 1970, during the Soviet occupation of Romania and the rule of Nicolae Ceausescu. Each of the bishops was arrested and held in prisons and camps until he died, often from isolation, cold, hunger, disease, or hard manual labor....

    VATICAN CITY - For the first time in 300 years, the marble steps of the Holy Stairs will be free from the thick wooden panels installed in 1723 to protect the stairs and left uncovered for the public. For at least 40 days, people will be able to touch and climb the bare stones that, according to tradition, are the ones Jesus climbed when Pontius Pilate brought him before the crowd and handed him over to be crucified. The soon-to-be cleaned steps and newly restored frescoed stairway will be unveiled April 11, the week before Holy Week, during a special...

    The Map of Salvation Did you ever have an idea come to you out of the blue? Of course you have. I had one some time ago that was so deep yet so simple, that you just sit and stare at it. I am a Bible believing Christian, but this idea is for anyone, Christian or non-Christian. You see, some Christians believe the Bible teaches that if you are saved, you are always saved. Others believe the Bible teaches that you have to live and act righteously to continue to be saved. And non-Christians believe salvation is not real, that...

    Milwaukee Journal Sentinel ^ | 3/19/19 | Annysa Johnson
    Bowing to pressure from Catholic church sex abuse victims and the faithful, the Archdiocese of Milwaukee announced Tuesday that it was removing the names of former Archbishops William E. Cousins and Rembert G. Weakland — both of whom took part in the coverup of sex crimes against children — from its headquarters complex and cathedral center. The archdiocese removed the sign outside the Archbishop Cousins Catholic Center, its headquarters complex in St. Francis on Tuesday. A new name will be announced and a temporary sign installed at 10 a.m. Friday. Weakland's name was quietly removed in recent days from the...

    March 19, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — In his latest book, Le soir approche et déjà le soir baisse (“It is nearly evening, and the day is almost over,” a quotation from the episode of the Emmaus pilgrims in Gospel of St. Luke), Cardinal Robert Sarah decided to “speak out” for the “disorientated Catholics” hurting from the deep crisis the Church is going through. “I can no longer remain silent. I may no longer remain silent,” Cardinal Sarah wrote in his opening paragraph. He has taken full measure of the “dark night” of the Church and “She is wrapped and blinded by...

    The Episcopal Church's House of Bishops met in Kanuga, NC this past week in an attempt to put lipstick on a pig. Michael Curry's much ballyhooed "way of love", an advance certainly on Frank Griswold's Circle Dance of Dispossession, and other Sufi ramblings, saw the HOB get an evangelical wakeup call from two speakers, who would, in times past, have been shown the door, not invited in. The first was a woman bishop from the African American Methodist Church, whose denominational mandate is "to seek out and save the lost and to serve the needy." TEC hasn't saved a soul...

    'Why shouldn't we pray for gender equality in the Church?' says Sister Ruth Schönenberger The leader of one of Germany's most important female religious communities has called into question the Catholic Church's exclusion of women from the ordained priesthood. "It is surely only natural for women to be priests and I cannot understand the reasons given as to why not," said Sister Ruth Schönenberger, head of the Benedictine Priory of Tutzing, the Bavarian motherhouse of a worldwide missionary order. "I am surprised that the presence of Christ has been reduced to the male sex," she said in a recent interview...
