…but alas, we are not permitted to sing “Alleluia” during Lent. One of my favourite Lighthouse Catholic Media cd’s is “Why Go To Mass; the Blood of the New Covenant” by Bishop Alexander Sample. It’s enough to turn any Protestant into a Catholic, and good enough to make a Catholic a better Catholic. His Excellency [...]
It’s how the demonic play, in this age of the perky teen getting what he/she wants. I am still astounded at how a parent could allow their child to take part in such a video. Astounded.
At no point during the Reformation Era did the Catholic Church lend a shoulder to cry on to the defeated slave-holding faction of the Confederate south. And at no point in the subsequent 100 years, right up to the 60′s Civil Rights Movement, did the Catholic Church support a southern restauranteur’s “right” to not serve [...]
“I wrote this on the anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, not to convince you to be Pro-Choice or Pro-Life. I wrote this because the women who choose to have abortions are real people with real emotions and real reasons why they chose that path. Choosing abortion is not easy for anyone and it is something [...]
Is it me, or is “Pro-Life” becoming a new religious denomination? I know this may put some people off, and that is honestly not my aim, but it is a legitimate concern for me. It first hit me when last year, fellow Catholics were calling the new pope “pro-life”. It seems to me that [...]
Could you imagine a world in which thousands upon thousands – nay MILLIONS – gathered along the capital city streets of one of the world’s most powerful nations, to march in support of Christ the King? What kind of world would that be? Likely, a world without abortion I’d say.
I’ve seen this meme make its rounds on social media today. And it’s precisely why one is justified in bringing up MLK’s promotion of Communist ideals and organizations, his support of Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood, his womanizing, his wife’s championing of “gay rights”, etc. And the general public is pressed to canonize [...]
Let’s play, “what if…” What if I presented to you a person who said he loved God. So much so, that he would willingly die for God. Now what if he told you that he reads from a book that says not only was Jesus not God, but that He didn’t even die on the [...]
It’s right there in paragraph 252 of Evangelii Gaudium. “The sacred writings of Islam have retained some Christian teachings” Sacred. As in, “holy”. But here’s the thing. The Christian Bible is sacred. It is the Holy Bible. And in its entirety, it is inescapably sacred. All of it. All 73 books. Every jot. Every tittle. [...]
Bethlehem. It means, “House of Bread”. Long before the Bread of Life Discourse in the sixth chapter of the Gospel of St. John, this Jesus of Nazareth, this… Living Bread come down from Heaven gave true meaning to bread as a babe… in relative obscurity. In material poverty. In an eating trough for animals. St. [...]
