    August 12, 2020 Wednesday of the Nineteenth Week in Ordinary Time Reading 1 EZ 9:1-7; 10:18-22 The LORD cried loud for me to hear: Come, you scourges of the city! With that I saw six men coming from the direction of the upper gate which faces the north, each with a destroying weapon in his hand. In their midst was a man dressed in linen, with a writer’s case at his waist. They entered and stood beside the bronze altar. Then he called to the man dressed in linen with the writer’s case at his waist, saying to him: Pass...

    August 11, 2020 Memorial of Saint Clare, Virgin Reading 1 EZ 2:8—3:4 The Lord GOD said to me: As for you, son of man, obey me when I speak to you: be not rebellious like this house of rebellion, but open your mouth and eat what I shall give you. It was then I saw a hand stretched out to me, in which was a written scroll which he unrolled before me. It was covered with writing front and back, and written on it was: Lamentation and wailing and woe! He said to me: Son of man, eat what is...
  • Trump Is Right About Biden’s Secularism

    Trump Is Right About Biden’s Secularism He will war on the religious. Donald Trump has correctly predicted that a Biden administration will undermine religion in America. “Take away your guns, take away your Second Amendment. No religion, no anything,” Trump said last week, forecasting what Biden will do. “Hurt the Bible. Hurt God. He’s against God. He’s against guns.” Biden has spoken of the limits of religious freedom — meaning that he will not support it whenever it conflicts with the goals of liberalism. Barack Obama famously said that bitter Americans cling to their “God and guns,” and implied that...

    August 10, 2020 Feast of Saint Lawrence, Deacon and Martyr Reading 1 2 COR 9:6-10 Brothers and sisters: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each must do as already determined, without sadness or compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. Moreover, God is able to make every grace abundant for you, so that in all things, always having all you need, you may have an abundance for every good work. As it is written:He scatters abroad, he gives to the poor; his righteousness endures forever. The one who supplies seed to...

    After President Trump claimed Joe Biden was “against God” during a speech to his supporters yesterday, the media pounced. Over and over again journalists on the big three networks and cable news insisted Biden was a “devout Catholic.”This is the same media who feigned righteous anger at Trump standing in front of a church, yet demand you chuck the Bible out the window when it comes to Democrats’ antithetical beliefs on abortion and marriage. Thursday night, self-proclaimed Catholic host Chris Cuomo opened his show by bashing Trump as a fake Christian before going on to defend Biden’s religiosity, with former...

Then the LORD said to him,“Go outside and stand on the mountain before the LORD;the LORD will be passing by.” A strong and heavy wind was rending the mountainsand crushing rocks before the LORD—but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake—but the LORD was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake there was fire—but the LORD was not in the fire. After the fire there...

O LORD, you have marked him for judgment, O Rock, you have readied him punishment! Too pure are your eyes to look upon evil, and the sight of misery you cannot endure. Why, then, do you gaze on the faithless in silence while the wicked man devours one more just than himself? You have made man like the fish of the sea, like creeping things without a ruler. He brings them all up with his hook, he...

    Washington, D.C. Newsroom, Aug 6, 2020 / 09:00 am MT (CNA).- A Catholic congressman is asking the U.S. Attorney General to respond to a spate of acts of vandalism against churches around the country. In a letter to Attorney General William Barr on Wednesday, Rep. Chuck Fleischmann (R-Tenn.) urged the Justice Department “to protect religious freedom and combat religious discrimination in the United States.” Fleischmann cited “nearly a dozen” acts of vandalism at Catholic churches in the U.S. as the impetus for his letter. “There is something to be said about how the rise in vandalism happening in places of...

His clothing was bright as snow, and the hair on his head as white as wool; his throne was flames of fire, with wheels of burning fire. A surging stream of fire flowed out from where he sat; Thousands upon thousands were ministering to him, and myriads upon myriads attended him. The court was convened and the books were opened. As the visions during the night continued, I saw: One like...

    Maryland Governor Larry Hogan (R) issued an emergency order on August 3 ensuring non-public schools, including Catholic schools, can make their own decisions regarding reopening for in-person instruction in the coming academic year. The order, issued Monday, came after Montgomery County, the most populated county in the state, issued an order on July 31 prohibiting all non-public schools from opening for in-person classes before October 1. Montgomery County Health Officer Dr. Travis Gayles said in Friday evening’s statement that “At this point the data does not suggest that in-person instruction is safe for students or teachers,” and that forcibly closing...

    Breitbart ^ | July 31 2020 | DR. SUSAN BERRY
    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) denounced the presence of a statue honoring canonized saint Father Damien, who ministered to lepers and died of the dreaded disease, as a remnant of “white supremacist culture.” In an Instagram story Thursday, in which the congresswoman took her followers on a tour of the U.S. Capitol building, she spoke about the lack of statues memorializing minority figures and referred to the images of America’s honored historical figures from all 50 states as a nod to colonialism. “Even when we select figures to tell the stories of colonized places, it is the colonizers and settlers whose...
