    "Heresiarch Cupich persecutes traditional Latin Mass. Does he believe Confession is about "forgiveness" - Bring it on baby, we'll out you all!" Thanks to Ann Barnhardt for digging up this little gem. If you want to read what Heresiarch Cupich thinks about the Sacrament of Non-Confession, read it all here. “We use that word “reconciliation” all the time. It doesn’t mean about giving people forgiveness. It comes from an anatomical root, namely the eyelash, it is called a cilia. So you begin to see eye-to-eye with people.” Who appointed this heretic to Chicago anyway? Oh, and speaking of Chicago, the...

    Socci: "Populism of Pope on immigration is in contrast with traditional wisdom of the Catholic Church." [Note: this article does not deal with war refugees, but with those most affecting Italy at the moment, economic migrants.] The devastating populism of Pope Bergoglio on immigration is in contrast with the wisdom of the Catholic Church Antonio Socci Libero August 30, 2015 The Catholic Church and the “Bergoglio Party” are at odds also on the immigration question. Bergoglio states that there are masses of people, who, because of hunger, have the absolute and unmitigated right to emigrate to our Countries. However, if...
  • Book Review: ‘Truth Overruled’ and the Case for Traditional Marriage

    Accuracy in Academia ^ | September 2, 2015 | Spencer Irvine
    Marriage quality, gay rights and “love is love” are common refrains that the Left uses in order to dismantle traditional marriage as we know it. Heritage Foundation marriage scholar Ryan T. Anderson’s latest book, Truth Overruled: The Future of Marriage and Religious Freedom, serves as an answer to many of these arguments. Anderson quoted Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts’ oral arguments to make one of his major points, namely that “You’re [gay activists] not seeking to join the institution, you’re seeking to change what the institution is.” Anderson pointed out four harmful consequences of radically changing the definition of...
  • How Redefining Marriage Puts Unborn Children at Risk

    07/20/2015 1:23:50 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 3 replies ^ | July 20, 2015 | Ryan Anderson
    Last week many of us were disgusted to learn Planned Parenthood is harvesting and selling body parts from aborted children. As the largest provider of abortion in America, Planned Parenthood is part of the problem, on the “supply” side. But as we all learned in Econ 101, there’s both supply and demand. What’s behind the demand for abortion? A major factor is the breakdown of the family. And the Supreme Court’s ruling to redefine marriage is only taking us further down that road, putting even more unborn children at risk. After all redefining marriage redefines parenthood. The best protectors of...

    My wife is a big fan of Fr. Richard Heilman of Madison, WI. He is a regular diocesan priest who oversees several parishes but who has found the great beauty and rewards from the traditional practice of the Faith, and especially the Traditional Latin Mass. He relates in a recent post how his experience of tradition has made him a much better priest and has fired his external apostolate, reaching out to random souls encountered in the world and bringing them back to the Sacraments. Note, this return – nascent though it may be – is not through watering down...

    In truth, the most salient fact of contemporary Catholic life in the West is the way it is pervaded by the pattern of saying things and then acting as if something else were true. (I’m learning, slowly. Everything below that is sarcasm or the voice of a liar, heretic or apostate is in GREEN.) Indeed. This sentence, penned earlier this week by a secular columnist almost sums up what pretty much everyone is too cowardly to say. In fact, it is the base premise underlying the derivative statement above that is the real 800 pound gorilla sitting squarely in the...

    Father Peter Carota writes, "During Lent we relived the evil actions of the religious authorities of Jesus’ time. We read from the Bible of their planning and paying for the eradication of Jesus. As soon as Jesus began His public ministry of forgiving sins, exorcising devils, healing the sick (especially on the Sabbath), and preaching, He evoked the hatred and jealousy of the Jewish Religious leaders (Scribes, Pharisees, Lawyers and Priest). All His actions were works of love that only brought on Him their hatred. I would say that there is a constant law even at work today. That law...

    Are feminists threatened by strong men? Can equality between the sexes include both a strong man and a strong woman,? Or does modern liberalism demand strong women overwhelming weak "metrosexual" men? Man-hating feminists are upset by common sense comments by actress Kirsten Dunst. The “A list” Hollywood star said in an interview in London with Harper’s Bazaar Magazine’s United Kingdom version: “And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armor. I’m sorry. You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That’s why relationships work…" 31-year old Ms. Dunst, who currently stars in “Midnight...

    Stay-at-home mums cooking lunch for the children while dads earn the money—Germans’ opinions on gender roles are more conservative today than they were in the 1990s, a survey revealed on Monday. Today just under half of women (48 percent) could imagine their husband taking a step back in his career to enable them to further their own, the Tagesspiegel reported. Back in 1993, the number was 54 percent who thought such a thing likely. Men have also hardened their views, with today 40 percent said they could see themselves putting a dent in their career to help their partners, while...

A self-made man if there ever was one, and superbly intelligent and poetic to boot. In the 1960s he started out with a self-financed private pressing LP about a fictitious blues legend, Blind Joe Death. There were 50 or 100 copies extant, depending on whom you consult. Needless to say it's the proverbial collector's item nowadays. Then a stream of great, contemplative, adventurous albums followed, many of them accompanied by fantastic, albeit spurious personal...

In one segment, they discussed one village that would have to be moved 500 yards up-hill (to end up EXACTLY at the water's edge , as they currently are) and how they would lose their "village tree"...The loss of the slightest amount of "traditional culture" is abhorrent to all leftists, unless we are talking about "traditional American culture"; which they can't destroy...

John Zuhlsdorf @ 5:00 am Thanks to be to Pope Benedict, who has given back to the Church and the world a great gift. As one friend put it, the world has been made just a little bit safer to live in. This document is about opening hearts and healing. In his explanatory letter Pope Benedict even quotes 2 Cor 6:13: “Widen your hearts!” Read Summorum Pontificum with a wide heart, and no one need fear that rights will be trampled or due authority undermined. The Motu Proprio...

    OTTAWA, MAY 23, 2007 ( It is said you are what you eat, and according to a Catholic wedding dress designer, you're also what you wear. Justina McCaffrey, a haute couture designer, is a vocal promoter of the Catholic idea of the feminine genius in the fashion industry, and insists that the clothes a woman wears can reflect or deflect her dignity, especially on her wedding day. In this interview with ZENIT, McCaffrey spoke about what she thinks is wrong with the wedding industry and the understanding of the role of faith and feminine dignity in the celebration of marriage....

    Young Traditional Catholics ^ | THE SERVER X-ANGEL
    On Saturday, May 12th, a contingent of Traditional Catholics in San Antonio, TX perform their annual “Pilgrimage along the Mission Trail” to celebrate and remember the sacrifice and service of the original Catholic Missionaries that pioneered the Catholic Church in Texas. The near 7 mile walk starts at Mission Concepcion and end at Mission Espada. At each mission, the group would stop and say a certain devotion, whether it be the Stations of the Cross, the Rosary, or the Litany of St. Joseph. Sounds harmless, especially since the Missions received thousands of visitors a year, from all faiths, right? Wrong....

    Pope Benedict XVI is giving new life to the Latin mass -- and many modern Catholics aren't happy.The other week Pope Benedict XVI phoned a few French bishops, and it wasn't to find out what they got for Christmas. According to Britain's Catholic Herald, the pope was doing a bit of old-fashioned arm-twisting in response to these bishops' very public opposition to Benedict's intention to grant Catholics more access to the pre-Vatican II rite of the Mass. On October 30, 2006, ten French bishops, including the archbishop of Strasbourg, released a letter expressing their fear that "the extension of the...
