Is it possible to be a Catholic “knight” who favors not the protection, but the extermination of the helpless unborn? Evidently, yes.


The national directive from K of C leadership, warning local councils that they cannot suspend the membership of abortion supporters, is couched in neutral language, suggesting that any such move to oust a member must be approved at the very top levels of the fraternal order. But are the top leaders of the K of C ready to take action? To the best of my knowledge they have never yet ousted a member because of his support for abortion. If the local councils are forbidden to act, and the national leadership is unwilling to act, then the disgrace will continue: prominent men who support the killing of the unborn will be allowed to parade around in the guise of Catholic knighthood.

In his attempt to justify this policy of inaction, Supreme Advocate John Marrella writes: “If the public figure’s bishop has not excommunicated him for his public positions on issues relating to matters of faith and morals, it would be highly inappropriate for the Knights of Columbus to do so.” [The full text of the Marrella letter to the Massachusetts K of C leadership can be found below.]

Well, yes. It would be “highly inappropriate” for the Knights of Columbus to excommunicate a member. It would also be impossible.

The Knights do not have the authority to deprive their members of the sacraments, nor is anyone suggesting that they should do so. What some K of C members do suggest is that pro-abortion politicians should be deprived of the privileges of membership in a private fraternal organization.

After 45 years, the Spirit finally returns to the Mass


The prevailing opinion seems to be that the newly translated Missal will come into use in the United States beginning with the First Sunday of Advent 2011. Other commentators consider 2012 a bit more realistic, but regardless of when it is introduced for official use the intervening months must be treated as “an opportunity for catechesis; a time to prepare for the reception of the new translation,” according to the Holy Father.

With this in mind, I’d like to share a brief excerpt adapted from,  And with Your Spirit – Recovering a sense of the sacred in the English translation of the Roman Missal – 3rd Edition, a booklet that I prepared for pastors, DRE’s, catechists and any other Catholic interested in preparing themselves and others well for what’s to come.

Once the Mass begins, we won’t have to wait long to encounter our very first change in the text:

When the priest says, The Lord be with you, no longer will the people reply, And also with you, but rather by saying, And with your spirit.

Of Sheep and Men

Sheep are mentioned more than 500 times in Scripture, which is significantly more than any other animal. In both the Old Testament and the New Testament, sheep are the favorite analogy in describing people and their relationship with the Father in heaven. We are sheep. While being sheep of our Lord’s flock is a blessing, it isn’t much of a compliment, I am afraid!

But maybe it is; let’s see and have a closer look.

There are quite some negative traits that can be pointed out about sheep:

    1. Sheep of all domestic animals require the most care and supervision. Left to themselves, sheep have an unlimited capacity for getting into trouble.
    2. Sheep are compelled by mob instinct. Sheep take their queues from each other. If one sheep panics, they all panic. They tend to go with the flow, even if the flow is going in the wrong direction. They have a tendency to wander off. Sheep are forever getting lost.
    3. Sheep are very susceptible to fear. The average sheep is a coward. One loud noise of any kind – it doesn’t have to be the howl of a wolf – sends the flock in every direction. When confronted with danger, sheep panic.
    4. Sheep are very destructive. Sheep have the very bad habit of being very hard on the pasture. When they graze they don’t trim the grass they eat. They bite down and pull up, removing the roots, and not only the stems.
    5. Sheep are very vulnerable to predators. Among animals, sheep are wimps. They are weak, slow, stupid and defenseless.
    6. Sheep have an incredible ability to get dirty. They easily turn every shade of gray and brown imaginable. Sheep get dirty and stay that way until somebody cleans them up.

Whether we like it or not, we are in many ways like sheep.

Bishop Sartain removes Bloomingdale priest for homosexual conduct

A Bloomingdale priest accused by a 21-year-old male of sexually inappropriate conduct has been removed from St. Isidore Catholic Church in Bloomingdale, church officials confirmed Wednesday.

A DuPage County State’s Attorney investigation into the matter did not find enough evidence to pursue criminal charges against Rev. Jerry Simonelli, said Tom Norton, the church’s executive administrator. However, during the Diocese of Joliet’s investigation, officials discovered that Simonelli had violated the church’s vow of celibacy in a past relationship with a man, according to Bishop J. Peter Sartain’s executive assistant Doug Delaney.

God touches us through children … and the godless pro-aborts instinctively know this.

“My daughter was in her high chair. I was watching her eat. She was the most miraculous thing that had ever happened in my life. I liked to watch her even when she smeared porridge on her face or dropped it meditatively on the floor. My eye came to rest on the delicate convolutions of her ear–those intricate, perfect ears. The thought passed through my mind: ‘No, those ears were not created by any chance coming together of atoms in nature (the Communist view). They could have been created only by immense design.’ The thought was involuntary and unwanted.

I crowded it out of my mind. But I never wholly forgot it or the occasion. I had to crowd it out of my mind. If I had completed it, I should have had to say: Design presupposes God. I did not then know that, at that moment, the finger of God was first laid upon my forehead.” God touches us through children.

So it is today. The 50 million unborn babies murdered in this country since 1973, the additional millions killed by chemical birth control and intrauterine devices whisper to the hearts of those who killed them. They cry in the dreams of their parents. They call the sensitive of heart to witness on street corners and at pregnancy help centers.. Their broken bodies testify to the absolute evil of a godless hedonism that usurps God’s role as the author of life. They are the tiny apostles, catalysts of conversion. Look at the mothers of Silent No More sharing their regret for taking the lives of their little ones. They demonstrate graphically that the blood of martyrs is the seedbed of faith. And the tiny martyrs of the culture of death are reaping a harvest of life. Polls show that America is becoming more pro-life. Generations of survivors recognize that they are the fortunate ones who dodged the abortionist’s knife. More and more they stand up for life like Tim Tebow, quarterback for the Florida Gators who goes into games with Scripture passages on his face. The word apostle means witness. The Bible says, “A little child shall lead them.” Let us follow them with courage.

On the Role Of Women In Modern Society And the Church

Women who express a desire for the ministerial priesthood are doubtless motivated by the desire to serve Christ and the Church. And it is not surprising that, at a time when they are becoming more aware of the discriminations to which they have been subject, they should desire the ministerial priesthood itself. But it must not be forgotten that the priesthood does not form part of the rights of the individual, but stems from the economy of the mystery of Christ and the Church. The priestly office cannot become the goal of social advancement; no merely human progress of society or of the individual can of itself give access to it: it is of another order.

It therefore remains for us to meditate more deeply on the nature of the real equality of the baptized which is one of the great affirmations of Christianity: equality is in no way identity, for the Church is a differentiated body, in which each individual has his or her role. The roles are distinct, and must not be confused; they do not favour the superiority of some vis-a-vis the others, nor do they provide an excuse for jealousy; the only better gift, which can and must be desired, is love (cf. 1 Cor 12-13). The greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven are not the ministers but the saints.

The Church desires that Christian women should become fully aware of the greatness of their mission: today their role is of capital importance, both for the renewal and humanization of society and for the rediscovery by believers of the true face of the Church.

Read INTER INSIGNIORES Vatican Document

The problem isn’t that Johnny can’t read. The problem isn’t even that Johnny can’t think.

A recent email from the Illinois Family Institute about a strongly biased, pro-homosexual article in the Chicago Tribune made (among others) the following key points:

Unfortunately, in an increasingly non-rational, non-thinking culture, appeals to such tales of woe carry persuasive power. It is these kinds of “narratives” that are shaping the views of even conservative Christians, particularly younger Christians who are not being taught to think critically. As Thomas Sowell, African American Senior Fellow at Stanford’s Hoover Institution, writes:

The problem isn’t that Johnny can’t read. The problem isn’t even that Johnny can’t think. The problem is that Johnny doesn’t know what thinking is; he confuses it with feeling.

Huppke reported that Gutierrez met with “LGBT community leaders at noon on Monday at the [homosexual] Center on Halsted” where he was joined in his confab by U.S. Rep. Mike Quigley (D-IL) and openly homosexual Rep.Jared Polis (D-CO).

Some concluding and random thoughts:

  • Appeals to emotion are not reasons.
  • The presence of sad feelings tells us precisely nothing about the morality of homosexuality — or any other moral issue.
  • The presence of emotional and sexual feelings and sexual interactions between two (or more) people does not render their relationship a family structure worthy of affirmation or legal status.
  • Rex Huppke is not reporting; he is cheerleading and proselytizing.

Britain-based Marie Stopes International announced it did 920,000 abortions in 43 countries in 2009.

London, England (LifeNews.com) — As the Marie Stopes International abortion business begins running abortion ads on television in England tonight, news surfaces that a woman in India died from a botched legal abortion at an MSI abortion center. She is one of several women to have died recently in India from failed abortions.

According to the Republica newspaper, a woman identified as Durga Devi Khadka went to a Marie Stopes center for an abortion of her 10-week-old unborn child.

She died at the MSI facility located in Damak Municipality-15 of Jhapa district on Sunday night.

Her family members told the newspaper they blame the “shoddy” practices and abortion practitioner at the Marie Stopes abortion business. Police have detained Chitra Bahadur Karki, the owner of the abortion center, for an investigation.

The abortion death comes as MSI is running new abortion commercials on Channel 4, despite criticism from pro-life groups and a potential legal challenge.

Susan G. Komen and Planned Parenthood: Pro-Life People Should be Warned

According to the 2008 Annual Report from Planned Parenthood, breast cancer services decreased by 4% and abortion procedures increased by 6%. In 2008, Susan G. Komen gave $731,000 to Planned Parenthood.

There are certain risks that can increase an individual’s chance of getting breast cancer. While Susan G. Komen says that they believe in knowing your risk factors, they have repeatedly denied the link between breast cancer and one of the greatest avoidable risk factors, abortion.

According to Dr. Angela Lanfranchi, “29 out of 38 worldwide epidemiological studies show an increased risk of breast cancer of approximately 30% among women who have had an abortion.”

When a woman has an abortion she interrupts the natural process of estrogen production and breast development. When a woman first becomes pregnant her body produces a Type 1 carcinogen, cancer causing agent, estrogen in order to nourish and provide for the baby. If the mother has her child, her body stops producing as much estrogen and her breasts mature. However, if that process is interrupted, the estrogen production continues and her breasts stay in an immature state, making them more susceptible to breast cancer.

Groups like Susan G. Komen acknowledge that the level of exposure to estrogen throughout a woman’s lifetime is one of the greatest predictors for breast cancer. Sadly, they do not acknowledge that the increased exposure to estrogen after an abortion could increase risks of breast cancer as well. For an organization whose primary goal is “to have a world without breast cancer”, you would think they would try to let women know of all the risk factors for breast cancer, especially those that are preventable like abortion.

“Naked progressivism” in the Joliet Diocese: What happened to the real Anima Christi Prayer?

What Happened to the REAL Anima Christi Prayer?

The Diocese of Joliet, Illinois website explains:

This year as we celebrate the diocesan “Year of the Eucharist,” we have chosen “One in the Body and Blood of the Lord” as the theme for the 2010 Catholic Ministries Annual Appeal. It is a very appropriate choice, for Psalm 34 invites us to “Taste and See the Goodness of the Lord.”

Then, we are given a prayer called the Anima Christi, which is a totally new (Jesuit) version of what has up until just now, always been an old favorite of traditional Catholics, going way back to the 14th century.

The original Anima Christi prayer goes like this:

Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me
Water from Christ’s side, wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesus, hear me
Within Thy wounds hide me
Suffer me not to be separated from Thee
From the malicious enemy defend me
In the hour of my death call me
And bid me come unto Thee
That I may praise Thee with Thy saints

and with Thy angels
Forever and ever
Amen

The NEW (Joliet progressive version) goes like this:

Jesus, may all that is you flow into me.
May your Body and Blood be my food and drink.
May your passion and death be my strength and life.
Jesus, with you by my side enough has been given.
May the shelter I seek be the shadow of your cross.
Let me not run from the love which you offer,
but hold me safe from the forces of evil.
On each of my dyings shed your light and your love.
Keep calling to me until that day comes,
when, with your saints, I may praise you forever. Amen.

Lord Jesus, Bread of Life and Covenant of Love –
Nourish us with your Body and Blood

Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament –
Pray for us

Perhaps you don’t care if the Catholic Church
swaps out things like prayers with impunity, but I do.
If you agree, respectfully mention it to your pastor,
or send an email to the diocese:
lthompson@dioceseofjoliet.org

Tell them: “Naked progressivism,
and change for the sake of change”
may still constitute a semi-popular political movement,
but it no longer has any place in the Holy Catholic Church.

Beware the rampant liberalism in the (Catholic) New American Bible

The NAB, in many places, daringly redacts, rearranges, or otherwise mistranslates the sacred text, and it does so in the service of the modernist critical hermeneutic which is revealed in its “perverse” introductions and commentary.

These comments repeatedly contradict or call into question the Catholic dogma of the plenary inspiration and inerrancy of Sacred Scripture,8 as well as raising grave doubts about the Catholic dogmas of Christology and Mariology.

The NAB refuses Scripture the submission which is due to it according to the Catholic saints: “Holy Scripture is in such sort the rule of the Christian faith that we are obliged by every kind of obligation to believe most exactly all that it contains, and not to believe anything which may be ever so little contrary to it.”9

Indeed, it freely confesses that Scripture is wrong in places and freely disagrees.

The NAB charges the Bible with contradiction, concerning which Oecumenius may be quoted as representative of the faith of the whole world: “For nothing could be contradictory in the mouth of the one and the same Spirit.”10 Yet more, it seems that the NAB would have our Lord in ignorance and our Lady in doubt of her faith, which can only eventuate in Catholic readers doubting theirs.

This Bible is a danger to the faith of Catholics; it is a near occasion for sin.11 And, tragically, the New American Bible is clothed in a form of godliness far more convincing than anything that a Protestant biblical society could ever hope to weave. Indeed, it possesses all the trappings of a faithfully Catholic Bible.

Church: Cohabiting couples cannot receive Communion

Reacting to questions raised recently in the media, the bishops said the Church loved such couples in the same way as it loved all its members. It would continue to offer them spiritual help and it encouraged them to go to Mass and participate in the life of the Church.

“However, the Catholic Church insists that couples who live together without being married should not receive Holy Communion.

“The Church does not impose this as a punishment, but because the way of life of such people goes against the sacrament of marriage,” the bishops said.

Critics who wonder why we don’t leave the Catholic Church just don’t get it!


John 6:61 But Jesus, knowing in himself that his disciples murmured at this, said to them: Doth this scandalize you?

John 6:64-70 But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that did not believe and who he was that would betray him. And he said: Therefore did I say to you that no man can come to me, unless it be given him by my Father. 

After this, many of his disciples went back and walked no more with him.

Then Jesus said to the twelve: Will you also go away?

And Simon Peter answered him: Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life.

And we have believed and have known that thou art the Christ, the Son of God.

Jesus answered them: Have not I chosen you twelve? And one of you is a devil.

***

Jesus Christ personally founded only one church … a church that is and will remain holy, Catholic and apostolic, until the end of time …  no matter how badly some of us might behave … simply because the church belongs to God … and the power of the one time, once for all, propitiatory sacrifice of Jesus Christ is more than sufficient to atone for even the deadliest sins of all mankind.

This is not to say that anyone will receive a “free pass” or “license” in order to escape God’s justice, which is perfect.

God is love, but his wrath remains real, formidable, and virtually inescapable, since wrath is due not to a lack of love, but to the divine judgment which necessarily falls upon sin in the moral world, over which God most certainly rules.

The entire length of  human history is nothing more than the blink of an eye to the eternal and almighty God.

Those who believe not, or who do not know God, see the current problems in the church as opportunities to tear down that which they are able to neither appreciate or understand, while the truly faithful see those same events as both a test, and a call to action.

True faith in Jesus Christ also demands faith in his universal church, of which he is known to have said, “…Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-Jona: because flesh and blood hath not revealed it to thee, but my Father who is in heaven.  And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.  And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven.” – Matthew 16:17-19

Any questions?

Sin: Public Enemy Number One


1865 Sin creates a proclivity to sin; it engenders vice by repetition of the same acts. This results in perverse inclinations which cloud conscience and corrupt the concrete judgment of good and evil. Thus sin tends to reproduce itself and reinforce itself, but it cannot destroy the moral sense at its root.

1866 Vices can be classified according to the virtues they oppose, or also be linked to the capital sins which Christian experience has distinguished, following St. John Cassian and St. Gregory the Great. They are called “capital” because they engender other sins, other vices.138 They are pride, avarice, envy, wrath, lust, gluttony, and sloth or acedia.

1867 The catechetical tradition also recalls that there are “sins that cry to heaven”: the blood of Abel,139 the sin of the Sodomites,140 the cry of the people oppressed in Egypt,141 the cry of the foreigner, the widow, and the orphan,142 injustice to the wage earner.143

1868 Sin is a personal act. Moreover, we have a responsibility for the sins committed by others when we cooperate in them:

– by participating directly and voluntarily in them;

– by ordering, advising, praising, or approving them;

– by not disclosing or not hindering them when we have an obligation to do so;

– by protecting evil-doers.

1869 Thus sin makes men accomplices of one another and causes concupiscence, violence, and injustice to reign among them. Sins give rise to social situations and institutions that are contrary to the divine goodness. “Structures of sin” are the expression and effect of personal sins. They lead their victims to do evil in their turn. In an analogous sense, they constitute a “social sin.”144

Definition:

1849 Sin is an offense against reason, truth, and right conscience; it is failure in genuine love for God and neighbor caused by a perverse attachment to certain goods. It wounds the nature of man and injures human solidarity. It has been defined as “an utterance, a deed, or a desire contrary to the eternal law.”121

1850 Sin is an offense against God: “Against you, you alone, have I sinned, and done that which is evil in your sight.”122 Sin sets itself against God’s love for us and turns our hearts away from it. Like the first sin, it is disobedience, a revolt against God through the will to become “like gods,”123 knowing and determining good and evil. Sin is thus “love of oneself even to contempt of God.”124 In this proud self- exaltation, sin is diametrically opposed to the obedience of Jesus, which achieves our salvation.125

1851 It is precisely in the Passion, when the mercy of Christ is about to vanquish it, that sin most clearly manifests its violence and its many forms: unbelief, murderous hatred, shunning and mockery by the leaders and the people, Pilate’s cowardice and the cruelty of the soldiers, Judas’ betrayal – so bitter to Jesus, Peter’s denial and the disciples’ flight. However, at the very hour of darkness, the hour of the prince of this world,126 the sacrifice of Christ secretly becomes the source from which the forgiveness of our sins will pour forth inexhaustibly.

Judge rules neighbors can proceed with lawsuit against Aurora Planned Parenthood

In 2007 the Thomas More Society, on behalf of neighbors, sued Planned Parenthood of Chicago and the City of Aurora, the former for violating multiple zoning ordinances when building its Aurora abortion mill under false pretenses and the latter for saying “that’s ok” when PP’s subterfuge was discovered.

TMS added a claim that to this day the City of Aurora continues to refuse to apply the correct zoning ordinance to PP, even after the City admitted its attorneys applied the wrong ordinance to PP in September 2008.

Since 2007 PP/Aurora have filed 3 separate motions to dismiss.

Today there was a huge victory for our side….

DuPage Co. Judge Neal Cerne ruled today that TMS’s zoning case can proceed. The judge denied PP’s latest motion to dismiss and upheld the main count of the suit, that PP willfully violated local zoning and building laws during the development and buildling process of the Aurora mill.

Judge Cerne ordered the defendants to answer TMS’s complaint within the next month.

NEW translation of the mass soon to be celebrated by more than 100 million English-speaking Catholics reaches back to church tradition, replacing the more colloquial and dumbed-down liturgy that was adopted by the Vatican 40 years ago.

Cardinal George Pell said the new mass had a “different cadence” to the translation of the Roman Missal that two generations of Australian Catholics grew up with, and which was a “bit dumbed-down”.

“The previous translators seemed a bit embarrassed to refer to angels, sacrifice and perpetual virginity,” Australia’s senior Catholic cleric said.

“They went softly on sin and redemption.”

The new translation places a heavier emphasis on Christ’s sacrifice and underlines the dependence of individuals on God. In one of the most controversial changes, the words of the consecration in the mass specify that Christ shed his blood “for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins”, rather than “for all” as the present translation puts it.

Supreme Court Nominee Kagan and the Abandonment of Natural Law

Natural law theory is the conceptual backbone of the Western legal tradition. It guided the framers of the American Constitution. Despite what some imagine, it isn’t a doctrine of the Catholic Church, though Catholic thinkers were largely responsible for its elaboration for centuries. A thumbnail sketch of it might be along these lines:

Human rights and duties arise from human nature. The conceptualization of this body of principles expressing fundamental conditions for individual and communal human fulfillment (not instant gratification but longterm happiness) is called natural law. Manmade laws don’t create these rights and duties but are meant to express and defend them. When manmade law fails to do that-when rights and duties are products only of the ideological preferences of lawmakers-society is ruled by a curious mix of relativism and power politics.

Natural law theory began to pass out of favor well over a century ago under the influence, among others, of that eminent relativist Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes (1841-1935). Now, practically speaking, in elite law schools and generally on federal courts peopled by their alumni, it is as dead as the proverbial dodo.

Pentecost: The Holy Spirit’s Anti-Babel


Genesis 11:4-9
And they said: Come, let us make a city and a tower, the top whereof may reach to heaven; and let us make our name famous before we be scattered abroad into all lands.  And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of Adam were building.  And he said: Behold, it is one people, and all have one tongue: and they have begun to do this, neither will they leave off from their designs, till they accomplish them in deed.  Come ye, therefore, let us go down, and there confound their tongue, that they may not understand one another’s speech. And so the Lord scattered them from that place into all lands, and they ceased to build the city.  And therefore the name thereof was called Babel, because there the language of the whole earth was confounded: and from thence the Lord scattered them abroad upon the face of all countries.


Acts of the Apostles 2:1-11 And when the days of the Pentecost were accomplished, they were all together in one place:  And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a mighty wind coming: and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.  And there appeared to them parted tongues, as it were of fire: and it sat upon every one of them.  And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost: and they began to speak with divers tongues, according as the Holy Ghost gave them to speak.  Now there were dwelling at Jerusalem, Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.  And when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded in mind, because that every man heard them speak in his own tongue.  And they were all amazed, and wondered, saying: Behold, are not all these that speak Galilean?  And how have we heard, every man our own tongue wherein we were born?  Parthians and Medes and Elamites and inhabitants of Mesopotamia, Judea, and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia,  Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome,  Jews also, and proselytes, Cretes, and Arabians: we have heard them speak in our own tongues the wonderful works of God.

***

At Babel, the people were divinely confounded and then dispersed, in an effort to frustrate their efforts, which were obviously at odds with the will of God.

At Pentecost, the people were first divinely confounded (notice the similar term used  in both passages) but then divinely inspired and dispersed … this time, in a most energetic effort to “jump start” the infant church, planting the seeds necessary for miraculous growth in “every nation under heaven”.

The “moral” of this story:


Psalms 127:1 A gradual canticle of Solomon. Unless the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it. Unless the Lord keep the city, he watcheth in vain that keepeth it.
