Unnecessary Genital Examination - Child Student Athletes

Michael Westhead | The Daily Knight As students return to school slowly, and sports seasons grind to a start parents will inevitably have to arrange for a sports physical exam for their student athletes. However, before following through on school protocol take this information into consideration, especially from a Catholic perspective. Physical exams usually entail intrusive, intimate examinations and some have asked, “why”? It would appear that the genital and/or breast aspects serve no obvious connection to sports performance. Some posit that for males, it is important to check for a hernia, but the research does not bear this out and it may have additional psychological implications. “An

Desire of Holy Mass

Alexandra Clark | The Daily Knight (Restless Pilgrim) One single Mass offered gives more glory to God, more reparation, more thanksgiving, more love, than all the prayers and sacrifices of all men and angels have given, or will give to Him throughout eternity.  And did you know, that this great grace you can easily reap from, because you can assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass all day long!  How? It is simple, and it is all yours by simply for the wishing, yours to give infinite love and joy to God, infinite thanks to God for all his goodness, infinite reparation to God for all sin, and infinite pleadings to God to call down on yourself and others unspeakable graces.  "Prayer that is of

BLM is to blame for destroying Sacred Heart of Jesus statue in El Paso

Justin Haggerty | The Daily Knight Let's call a spade a spade. BLM is responsible, by fostering a cancel culture that is fueled by self-manifested race tensions to destroy everything that opposes their marxist-atheist agenda, for the destruction and desecration of the Sacred Heart of Jesus statue in St. Patrick's Cathedral in El Paso last Monday, August 14th. Related Article: Sacred Heart of Jesus in St. Patrick's Cathedral Desecrated in El Paso Over a week has passed and the local government of El Paso, the Department of Justice, and Bishop Mark J.

The Feast Day of Love

Alexandra Clark | The Daily Knight Holy Thursday with Saint John the Apostle (DiscalcedCarmel.org) You heard that right. Love has a feastday! Know what it is? If you are like me, you might think that day is Good Friday, that Sacred Day where Love Himself was Crucified for the Love of us, but no, that is not the answer. Let us look into this beautiful scene where Christ explains His Love for man and the feast day of Love: "Today is my great day, the day of Love... It's feast day." Our Lord said on the morning of Holy Thursday. "Today is the day on which I give My Self to souls that I may be for them just what they wish: If they will look on Me as their father, I shall be a father to them

Only Charged with Criminal Mischief, not a Hate Crime - destroyed Sacred Heart of Jesus statue for b

Justin Haggerty | The Daily Knight Suspect charged with the vandalism of the Sacred Heart of Jesus statue in St. Patrick's Cathedral, El Paso (KVIA and Diocese of El Paso) UPDATE: Local police on Wednesday, September 16th, identified the suspect arrested in the Sacred Heart of Jesus statue destruction at St. Patrick Cathedral as 30–year old Isaiah Cantrell. Original Article: Sacred Heart of Jesus in St. Patrick's Cathedral Desecrated in El Paso KVIA El Paso reported that Cantrell was charged with criminal mischief and possession of marijuana. There seems to be some misunderstand among local residents of El Paso, as to why Cantrell has not been charged for more severe crimes like vandalism or

Too big to fail: Catholic America’s annulment machine

John Farrell | The Daily Knight (USA Today) Between 1968 and 1988, there was a 21K% increase in USA annulments. How was this legitimately done? It wasn’t. All permanent separation of baptized spouses are by ecclesiastical judgement only, not civil judgement. This is because the marriage contract (to live together) is bound up with the sacrament, and cannot be separated from it (Arcanum 23, Casti Connubii 78). The 3rd council of Baltimore #126 states: "We command all (i.e. baptized) married persons that they must not go to the civil courts to obtain a separation from bed and board without previously receiving permission from the ecclesiastical authority. Should anyone attempt this, let him kn

Sacred Heart of Jesus in St. Patrick's Cathedral Desecrated in El Paso

Justin Haggerty | The Daily Knight Statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus at St. Patrick’s Cathedral destroyed in act of vandalism on Sept. 14, 2020 (Courtesy: Catholic Diocese of El Paso) EL PASO, Texas – KFOX reported that St. Patrick's Cathedral was vandalized Monday and the 90-year-old statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus was destroyed. Over three years ago, while serving in the U.S. Army in El Paso, I recognized this growing hatred against Catholicism and the Church. Seven attacks later, we are still witnessing emboldened hatred and violence against the Faith.

Archbishop Vigano ~ “A Resistance that is Rooted in Charity and Truth.”

Alexandra Clark | The Daily Knight Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano (Les Femmes) On Sept. 1, 2020 Archbishop Viganò happily responded to questions raised by Catholic Family Newspaper, which addressed various matters that are very important for the faithful regarding specifically the issue of Vatican II. He continues to stand firm against the revolutionary heretical errors of Vatican II and its false church, continuing to encourage the Faithful to have a “Resistance that is Rooted in Charity and Truth.” The first question asked was: “What would ‘separating’ from the Conciliar Church look like in Archbishop Viganò’s opinion?” To which Vigano responded with another question: “What does it mean to

Debating Distributism & Capitalism - How about Virtue based Socio-Economics, Virtuism?

Justin Haggerty | The Daily Knight Steel Worker (Barry Kidd Photography) Last Thursday evening, I tuned into a live debate on Restoring the Faith Media, where John Médaille (author of The Vocation of Business: Social Justice in the Marketplace, and Towards a Truly Free Market; A Distributist Perspective) and Jeff Cassman argued whether distributism or captialism is the more beneficial and efficient socio-economic theory. I couldn't help but contemplate, what if neither of the theories can make that claim? It's a fitting debate to have near Labor Day, especially as the nation gears up for the 2020 General Election; an election where it appears that capitalism and socialism, Christianity and m

Fr. James Altman: You cannot be Catholic & a Democrat

Alexandra Clark | The Daily Knight (Alpha News MN) To know, love and serve the Lord, that is man's purpose in life. It really is that simple. Many today, even within the Catholic Church, do not serve God because they do not love Him. In fact, they do not love Him, because they do not know Him. In a very powerful video a courageous priest, Father James Altman calls out the hypocrisies of Church hierarchy and their adherence to the evil Democratic platform. He calls out such priests like Fr. James Martin, S.J., who spoke at the DNC, for attempting to normalize policies that oppose Church teachings. It is because of false shepherds that so many Catholics souls are led astray from Divine Truth,

While America tears down statues of Saints, Prague restores Our Lady

Justin Haggerty | The Daily Knight (Archdiocese of Prague) In a summer of socio-political turmoil, American cities have chosen to aid and abet marxist efforts to terrorize downtown areas, vandalize public squares, and remove historical and Catholic statues. From President Abraham Lincoln to St. Junipero Serra, we have watched (largely idle) as Antifa and BLM attacked public and private statues, murals, and memorials. By the grace of God, there is a different story in Prague, Czech Republic. Not all western cities are under siege by marxist anarchists and barabass vandals. On June 4th, Mariánský sloup v Praze na Staroměstském náměstí, a non-profit on Facebook, restored the Marianske Column, i

Statue of King Louis XVI removed in Louisville to appease Antifa & BLM

Justin Haggerty | The Daily Knight (Reddit) LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The statue of King Louis XVI, French monarch and patron of Louisville, Kentucky, which has been vandalized several times in recent months, is being removed from its spot in the city's downtown area.

Make the Family Great Again with LMNOP+

Washington D.C. (LMNOP) A brave group of pro-family American patriots took to the streets of Washington, DC to celebrate Trump's acceptance speech for the Repuclican nomination on Thursday August 27th, as well as Trump's pro-family policies that he has enacted in the last 4 years. These conservative Americans address themselves as the LMNOP+ community and dressed up in various costumes to represent the "Lifestyle of Mainstream Normal Ordinary People" (LMNOP). It goes without saying that LMNOP+ is a play on words with a perverse accronym, which carries an agenda to destroy the nuclear family. Specifically, this group of LMNOP+ is called PublicAdvocateUSA.org, and was led by their President, E
