He likened same-sex attraction to “a bad habit.” Milonov said that if his son told him he was gay, he would take him to a priest who should tell the young man that he was partaking in a...

    CatholicReference.net ^ | 09-25-12 | Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary
    Featured Term (selected at random):LITANY OF THE PRECIOUS BLOOD A series of invocations of the Savior, through his Precious Blood, approved in its present form by Pope John XXIII in 1960. Each of the twenty-four petitions begins with the term "Blood of Christ," to which the response is "Save us." The Blood of Christ represents wither Christ himself, as "Blood of Christ, Incarnate Word of God," or refers to the physical Blood of the Savior, as "Blood of Christ, poured out on the Cross," or spans both meanings, as "Blood of Christ, freeing souls from purgatory." The Litany of the...

    The National Catholic Register ^ | 9/24/12 | Elisabeth Deffner
    Evil has not fallen out of fashion. Exorcism is a rite developed — and promulgated — to meet a need that still exists, due to more people delving into New Age and occult practices. And, yes, satanic worshippers are a reality. “They come in the church and steal the Blessed Sacrament to use in a ‘black mass,’” explained Father Gary Thomas, pastor of Sacred Heart Church in Saratoga, Calif., and the exorcist for the Diocese of San Jose. He has alerted his fellow priests to this danger — and trained his extraordinary ministers of holy Communion so that they note...

    An ancient form of worship, contemplative prayer is making a comeback in Baptist churches.Terms like “silence and reflection,” “creating space” and “getting in touch with yourself” were absent from Chad Kerr’s Baptist upbringing in Georgia. But they’ve since become central to his ability to cope with the demands of life as a bank president, husband and father of three children under age 10. “With all the noise we have going on in our lives, creating that space to be still before God is very important,” he said. Kerr finds that space in the contemplative worship and prayer forms practiced at...
