  • [Catholic Caucus] Novena in Honor of the Seven Sorrows of Mary (1910 Raccolta)

    09/06/2017 12:30:08 AM PDT · by CMRosary · 4 replies
    NOVENA in HONOR of the SEVEN SORROWS of MARY(Beginning September 6)[Besides the indulgences granted for every novena in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary by Pius IX, Pope Leo XIII on January 27, 1888, granted that all the faithful may gain, on the third Sunday in September, being the second feast of the Seven Sorrows of Mary (the other is observed on the Friday before Palm Sunday), a plenary indulgence as often as they visit, after confession and communion, a church where the Archconfraternity of the Seven Sorrows is canonically established, and pray there for the intentions of the...

  • Some Artists Are Actually Focusing on Beauty Again

    There’s a group of artists who most of the general public has yet to know exist. These are highly skilled painters, sculptors, and draftsmen trained in ateliers or academies who are not embarrassed to utter the word “beautiful” at a time when that word is generally scorned by the contemporary art establishment. You’ll hardly ever see their works in major museums or at major galleries for longer than a short stint. Most of their works are whisked away by private collectors or are sitting in their studios, waiting to be discovered. These artists value quality over quantity, sincerity over cynicism,...

    "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

    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

    Townhall.com ^ | 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...

    With the rise of flexible working schedules, the freelance economy, and video conferencing, more Americans are getting their jobs done without ever heading into an office, according to new data from the American Time Use Survey released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Among all workers, 23% report spending all or part of their day working from home. That’s up from less than 19% in 2003, the first year for which there’s comparable data.

    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...

    Leader of Philadelphia Church discusses plans for World Meeting of Families, to be attended by Pope Francis. The Holy See confirmed this week that Pope Francis will visit the United States for the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia, September 22-27, 2015. The historic visit will fall just one week before the opening of the General Synod of Bishops on the Family to be held in Vatican City, October 4-25, 2015. When the announcement came, Archbishop Chaput of Philadelphia was on hand at at the Vatican attending the Humanum Colloquium on the Complementarity of Man and Woman in Marriage. The...

    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...

    La Salette Journey ^ | April 22, 2014 | Paul Melanson
    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...

    Perhaps as a concluding post on funeral masses, this is my third post on the subject this week (omni trinum perfectum – all things are perfect in three), I would like to re-post an article I wrote over a year ago.Many of the comments these past days mentioned the Traditional Latin Requiem Mass, which I have been privileged to celebrate many times in my 25 years. It is a beautiful and gentle liturgy, so consoling and yet also sober and mindful that someone has died and that we ought to pray.And while I do not say that everyone must like...

It is so, so important for us and all families. And, we thank the justices for letting us get married in California. But that’s not enough. It’s gotta go nationwide. And we can’t wait for that day.“(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

    Those of us who believe in Traditional American Values, The American Constitution and a Judeo/Christian God are under assault. We are being attacked both on a National and International level. While I know this is not news to many, it is time to acknowledge and reaffirm the seriousness of the battle. With the ascendence of the Radical Marxist Obama to the very Highest Authority in our Nation, the Left has abandoned all preteneses of moderation and compromise. They no longer feel the need to cloak their truse desires. They speak openly of Redistribution of Wealth, Government as the Ultimate Authority,...
