  • Does Pope Francis offer an authentic Gospel or the "Social Gospel"?

    La Salette Journey ^ | December 27, 2014 | Paul Melanson
    Back in December of 2012, I wrote, "The "Social Gospel" is more concerned about an earthly future than eternity Standing before a statue of Mary near the Spanish Steps on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, Pope Benedict XVI reminded his listeners that the Gospel is the good news of freedom from sin, that it is "the proclamation of the victory of grace over sin, of life over death." Proponents of the "social gospel" have forgotten this. The mission of the Church is not to eradicate poverty or social injustice. As Dr. Dietrich von Hildebrand explains, while "a deep interest...

    Religion News Service is reporting that: "Cardinal Walter Kasper, one of Pope Francis’ closest advisers, has sought to downplay the pontiff’s scathing critique of the Curia earlier this week. Kasper, who previously led the Vatican body responsible for promoting Christian unity, said the pope was asking the Curia, or Vatican administration, to examine their conscience in a bid to promote spiritual renewal. The German cardinal, joined by Argentine Cardinal Leonardo Sandri, said Francis was asking the Curia to set an example. 'The fundamental thing is he wants spiritual reform of the Curia,' Kasper told the Italian daily Corriere della Sera...

    In a CUNY newspaper editorial written earlier this month, the “Advocate’s” Editor-in-Chief called for violent protests against those opposed to “justice” for Michael Brown and others. The piece, called “In Support of Violence,” contains several chilling passages. “The time for peace has passed, indeed it never existed in this country,” the editorial explains. “It doesn’t matter if Brown robbed a convenience store, or even if he assaulted Wilson. What matters is that the case highlights the depths to which the capitalist state and its police forces will protect their own and attempt to stifle any sort of dissent.” The editorial...

    For Christmas was, is, and always will be, a clear cold, night. Some say that Christmas is too secular, that the glitter, music, gifts and family dinners are really not what the holy day is about. They hold that the Baby Jesus has been forgotten in the cacophony and confusion of commercial Christmas. They say that it is only about the birth of Christ. Everything else, they say, is a distraction or, even worse, sacrilege. Others say Christmas is not a holy day, but a day for family, friends, and presents—that Jesus was an historical figure, whose life should not...

Breaking, bombshell social media evidence in the Jessica Chambers case suggests the dynamic is reversed, but similar. In trying to follow and sort out the details surrounding the grisly immolation death of the white former cheerleader two weeks ago, one encounters a cast of very shady characters a country mile long and wide, with the sordid backstory of small-town police corruption in Panola County, and a troubled family tale, all of it...

For years Obama has told Congress he would keep them in the loop regarding Cuba. Predictably Congress had no idea the Obama administration was negotiating with the Communist dictatorship. Yesterday’s announcement came as a surprise to everyone. As with every other negotiation with a hostile foreign power, Obama got completely taken by the Cuban Communists. Obama negotiates from a position of American weakness because he doesn’t believe in American strength. Obama’s flirtations...

It is still the case, even in a seminary with a reputation for orthodoxy such as St. Charles, that seminarians would not openly admit to members of the formation committee that they attended a licit (under the Ecclesia Dei indult) Tridentine liturgy for fear of being branded a “reactionary” and hounded out.

When one of the world's leading exorcists, Father Gabriele Amorth, was asked how one can tell if someone is possessed, he replied, "By their aversion to the sacrament and all things sacred." One of the clearest signs of demonic possession is a hatred for the Eucharist or the crucifix. And isn't this precisely what we are witnessing today? As our world immerses itself more and more in sin, the numbers if demon-possessed multiply exponentially.

    Botox is being used to slim calves. Due to genetics or athletics, some women are prone to larger lower-leg muscles. When you use those muscles to walk, stand in heels, or workout, for instance, they also bulge and thicken. Injecting Botox paralyzes the muscle so it can’t fully contract, which may lead to a potential two-inch decrease in calf circumference and the appearance of a slimmer leg for up to six months. Why the push to pare down the lower leg? Those with larger calves have more complaints than you think. Women may have more trouble finding clothes and boots...

    I never got around to posting about my October trip to the hospital, I was out in four days, just another lung bug, and things were popping here on the forum and I just dug in.I had already fired the doctor who screwed up, almost fried my kidneys and caused a case of gout with too many diuretics. The insurance plan assigned a new doctor anyway so when I landed in the ER I gave his name. He never showed up, but the one I fired did. I told him to go away and 10 minutes later his sidekick showed...

Now these marks can be found only in the man who possesses reverence. Reverence is the attitude which can...

Moving forward a movie like Pretty Woman would fit that too. Can I get some suggestions for movies like that that are worth the time to rent?
