  • [Catholic Caucus] The dangers of proliferating Communion services

    Catholic Culture ^ | May 18, 2020 | Fr. Jerry Pokorsky
    [Catholic Caucus] The dangers of proliferating Communion services The cancellation of the public celebration of the Mass in dioceses across the US and the world—beginning in Rome—has established dangerous precedents. In addition to the breathtaking surrender to secular authorities with no public pushback on the part of Catholic bishops, chanceries have introduced the innovation of abbreviated Communion services (with ten or fewer people). The early response by parishioners has been favorable, and in some instances, exuberant. But without vigilance, could the practice become a Trojan horse of confusion and even schism? Unfortunately, it has become too easy to dismiss the...

    [Catholic Caucus] Priest Blames Catholic Theology for Lack of Faith h2 class="grey-subtitle" style="margin-bottom:12px;">Jesuit Fr. Thomas Reese: 'Mass is not about adoring Jesus' After a survey found that few U.S. Catholics believe in the Real Presence, a Jesuit priest says the Church's own theology is to blame. Father Thomas Reese said in an Aug. 19 opinion piece, "The Mass is not about adoring Jesus or even praying to Jesus." "Ultimately, the Mass is more about us becoming the body of Christ than it is about the bread becoming the body of Christ." Father Reese's article was a response to recent survey results showing...

    VATICAN CITY (RNS) — After a week-long meeting in Rome with Pope Francis, young Catholics called for an authentic and empowering church where they would feel welcomed. The call came in a 16-page document approved by the 300 young people from all over the world who participated in a meeting preparing for the synod of bishops that will meet in October on the topic of “Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment.” In preparation for this pre-synodal meeting, 15,000 young people engaged online through the Facebook groups. Not surprising, the official English text appeared on Facebook before appearing on the...

I don’t recall ever tweeting to or about him or retweeting. Hence, I don’t know when I was blocked or why.But, I think we all know why.I also am not sure...

    "The court appointed attorneys in the Reese case have filed a joint motion to vacate (throw out) the felony convictions and sentence them under a misdemeanor statute." "Rick, Terri and Ryin Reese were convicted in 2011 of four counts of Form 4473 (Brady check) violations. According to agents who testified during trial, the Reeses ran all of the required background checks (the Brady checks) through the FBI processing center for all sales, including the undercover agents who purchased the firearms, and that none of the paperwork was missing."

    Attorneys for the Reese family filed a petition for rehearing en banc Tuesday in the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit in Denver. This latest move by the defense challenges a March 19 decision by a three judge panel overturning a District Court decision that the family of former gun dealers merited a new trial based on the prosecution withholding evidence that a witness had been the subject of a criminal investigation. The panel’s ruling last month was another in a series of setbacks for a family that has endured an ordeal approaching three years. Arrested in...

    Summer Reese, the fired executive director of Pacifica Radio, says she’s still not leaving the left-leaning organization’s California HQ in Berkeley, and is now sporting an inflatable air mattress at her office.... Reese, 40, was fired by the non-profit foundation’s board in an 11-7 vote on 3/13 and was locked out of the headquarters. However, after cutting the padlock to get into the building, Reese has hunkered down for nine days (as of 3/27) with a team of supporters. Reese and 12 of her compatriots — including Reese’s mother, a longtime anti-war and civil rights activist — refused to let...

    Adding to an ordeal that’s dragged on for two years, the embattled Reese family is now facing the withdrawal of their attorneys due to compensation issues, a source close to the case told Gun Rights Examiner yesterday. Such a move, which may have already happened by this writing, will leave the defendants with no choice but to file affidavits claiming indigence so that they can obtain a public defender or a court-appointed lawyer. Arrested in 2011 for allegedly knowingly selling guns to cartel members while operating a New Mexico gun store, all Reese family members were found not guilty on...

    In a series of mixed but mostly negative legal messages for embattled defendants Rick, Terri and Ryin Reese, Judge Robert C. Brack of the United States District Court for the District of New Mexico issued rulings last Tuesday on multiple motions related to the case. Arrested almost two years ago for allegedly knowingly selling guns to cartel members while operating a New Mexico gun store, all Reese family members were found not guilty on the most serious charges of conspiracy. Additionally and significantly, money laundering charges against them were dismissed. Husband Rick, wife Terri and son Ryin were convicted on...

    The court must be wary of “manufactured” government arguments masking its own “impropriety,” as well as mindful of attempts to “drive a wedge” between defendants and “impos[e] unnecessary financial burdens,” lawyers for the Reese family of gun dealers cautioned in a joint response in opposition to the government’s opposed motion for ruling on joint representation filed Tuesday in the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. Jailed for allegedly knowingly selling guns to cartel members, all family members were found not guilty on the most serious charges of conspiracy, and money laundering charges against them were dismissed.
