Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI: Casual attitude to reception of Holy Communion central to moral crisis i

At St. Peter’s Basilica on November 3, 2008, Pope Benedict XVI distributes Holy Communion on the tongue to the kneeling faithful. ROME, April 12, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — A casual attitude towards the Holy Eucharist is at the heart of the moral crisis in the Church, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI has said. The pope emeritus this week argued that at the center of the moral crisis that has engulfed the Church is an increasingly casual attitude towards reception of Holy Communion, as though it were a mere ritual flourish at the end of Mass rather than an entering into the presence of the infinitely Holy. In an essay for a Bavarian magazine aimed principally at clergy, in which he reflects on the origi

Oregon Archbishop Uses 1962 Latin Rite to Baptize Youngest Baby of 12: “I Was Reminded of Why I Beca

Lucas Richard Photography This is so beautiful! Archbishop Alexander K. Sample of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Portland, Oregon announced a baptism he recently administered in the 1962 Latin Rite. He also celebrated the Extraordinary Form Mass, also known as the Tridentine Mass, or the Traditional Latin Mass. He explained the baptism, along with a link to the photos of the beautiful event: “I had the wonderful privilege yesterday of baptizing the 12th child, Benedict Alexander, of Tricia and Chad Cmelja at All Saints Parish in Minneapolis,” Archbishop Sample said in this Facebook post. “Tricia was the leader of my youth group in my first parish in Bark River, Michigan when she was a hig

Rogation Days

Psalm 103:32 "He looketh upon the earth, and maketh it tremble: He toucheth the mountains, and they smoke." "Rogation" comes from the Latin "rogare," which means "to ask," and "Rogation Days" are days during which we seek to ask God's mercy, appease His anger, avert His chastisements manifest through natural disasters, and ask for His blessings, particularly with regard to farming, gardening, and other agricultural pursuits. They are set aside to remind us how radically dependent we are on Mother Earth, and how prayer can help protect us from nature's often cruel ways. It is quite easy, especially for modern city folk, to sentimentalize nature and to forget how powerful, even savage, she

House Democrats remove 'So Help Me God' from oath of office; are they valid Representatives?

Since taking control of the House, Democrat leaders of several key committees have nixed the phrase “so help me God” from a swearing-in oath for individuals testifying before them. “I think God belongs in religious institutions: in temple, in church, in cathedral, in mosque — but not in Congress,” Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen of Tennessee, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties told The New York Times. What Republicans are doing, he continued, “is using God.” “And God doesn’t want to be used,” he said. Rev. Franklin Graham, who serves as president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has blasted the move as backward.

Cdl. Burke: It’s ‘responsible’ for Christian nations to resist ‘large-scale Muslim immigration’

ROME, May 17, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) ― Resisting “large-scale Muslim immigration” is “a responsible exercise of one’s patriotism," Cardinal Raymond Burke said today. The Cardinal made the remark at this afternoon’s Question and Answer session at the Rome Life Forum in Rome. The session immediately followed Burke’s address on filial piety and national patriotism. Burke had been asked, presumably apropos of Pope Francis’ refusal to grant an audience to Italy’s deputy prime minister Matteo Salvini, if a politician who resists large-scale Muslim immigration should be refused a papal blessing. The Cardinal indicated that he wouldn’t comment on papal blessings, but that he thought the “fundamental qu
