    Who wants to be a bishop – after McCarrick? by Michael Davis posted Saturday, 22 Sep 2018 Cardinal Timothy Dolan (CNS) The Vatican is struggling to regain control of major American diocesesJust a few months ago – though it seems like years – Washington, DC was the most coveted see in America. Though not the largest or wealthiest diocese, its archbishop is often the most politically well-connected cleric in the United States.All that changed when its former archbishop, Theodore McCarrick, was revealed to be a serial sex abuser. Then, accusations of complicity began to pile up against his successor, Cardinal...

    White Greater Double THE OFFICE OF THE TIME gives us, at the close of September, the Books of Judith and Esther. These heroic women were figures of Mary, whose birthday is the honor of this month, and who comes at once to bring assistance to the world. “Adonai, Lord God, great and admirable, who hast wrought salvation by the hand of a woman:” the Church thus introduces the history of the heroine who delivered Bethulia by the sword, whereas Mardochai’s niece rescued her people from death by her winsomeness and her intercession. The Queen of heaven, in her peerless...

    Grace To You.org ^ | 1993 | John MacArthur, Grace Community Church
    "Take . . . the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God" (Eph. 6:17). God’s Word is your primary offensive spiritual weapon. All the armor Paul lists in Ephesians 6 is defensive, with one exception: the sword of the Spirit. That's your offensive weapon for defeating Satan. We've seen that Roman soldiers carried two swords: the large broadsword and the small dagger. The Greek word translated "sword" in verse 17 refers to the dagger, which was anywhere from six to eighteen inches in length and was carried in a sheath or scabbard at the soldier's side. The...

    “And if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow-heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him in order that we may also be glorified with Him” (Romans 8:17). The Holy Spirit confirms within our hearts the hope of eternal glory. I believe people today instinctively know they are devoid of glory (see Rom. 1:18-21), but they explore all the wrong avenues in seeking to regain it. They look for personal glory by building successful careers, spending many hours in community service, being generous to charities, and so forth. But such efforts only lead to jealousy and pride. Unregenerate...

Sep 22, 2018 by Hilary White in Church of traitors Infamous photo of Mindszenty after months of torture, taken at his show-trial. To understand how the homosexual infiltration of the clergy happened, you must first understand when, why and how the Church first abandoned its opposition to Communism. The two issues are inseparable. The Church’s recent embrace of the Sexual Revolution comes from the same source; its infiltration by Marxists, and behind them, Freemasonry.Quite a lot of that history can be read about here and here.Many...

    LifeSite News ^ | September 22, 2018 | Steven Mosher
    September 22, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) — As someone who, over the years, has helped underground Catholics in China build churches and open orphanages, I believe that the "provisional agreement" is a betrayal of the Catholic Church in China. Actually, I see it as a betrayal on several levels.  It betrays the authority of the papacy by giving the Chinese Communist Party the right to name bishops.  It betrays the underground Church in China, a Church which not only has survived decades of persecution at the hands of the authorities but is now, once again, under siege.  And--I would argue--because it is a secret agreement,...

    Why is this accused gay predator still running the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception? The other day I received a call from a former Catholic University of America student who recounted episodes of sexual harassment that he suffered at the hands of Monsignor Walter Rossi, the Gay Mafioso whom pederast Cardinal Theodore McCarrick appointed to run the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in 2005. Rossi succeeded another accused gay harasser, (then monsignor, later bishop) Michael Bransfield who is currently under investigation for preying upon men. So in Rossi’s rise we see another case of gay...

    Revealing “The Great Accuser”: Pope Francis Fires Back at Crictics Despite Pledge of Silence Bree A. Dail September 22, 2018 Although the pope pledged that he would “not say a single word” about the accusation that he was involved in the coverup of Cardinal McCarrick’s sexual abuse, he seems unable to stop making oblique references to exactly that situation. There has been a pattern—a theme if you will—that has overtaken the papal homilies of the past few weeks since the allegations first sufraced. Indeed, since news broke of the 11-page testimony from Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganó on August 25th, the...

    Asking a Crucial Question: A Homily for the 25th Sunday of the Year Msgr. Charles Pope • September 22, 2018 • In the Sunday Gospel, the Lord Jesus is asking a crucial question. The word crucial here is selected carefully; it comes from the Latin cruces, meaning “cross.” Indeed, looming over this entire gospel reading is the cross. In it, Jesus makes the second prediction of His passion, death, and resurrection. It is in the context of this teaching that the Lord asks the “crucial” question of us: What is most central in your life? Let’s look at this...
  • China's Catholic Church Pledges Loyalty to Party After Vatican Deal

    Reuters ^ | 9/23/18 | Adam Jourdan
    SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China’s Catholic Church reaffirmed its loyalty to the country’s ruling Communist Party on Sunday, while welcoming a landmark deal struck with the Vatican on appointing new bishops. The Vatican on Saturday signed an agreement giving it a long-desired and decisive say in the appointment of bishops in China, though critics labeled it a sellout to the government. China’s around 12 million Catholics have been split between an underground Church swearing loyalty to the Vatican and the state-supervised Catholic Patriotic Association. The Catholic Church in China said it would “persevere to walk a path suited to a socialist...
