“And behold the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom; and the earth shook, and the rocks were split…”Mt 27:45-51

It was always said that the Angels, who had to stand by, helplessly, because they were obedient to the Father’s Will, when their Lord and King suffered cruel punishment and died on the Cross, bellowed out such an agonizing shout, it reached to the ends of the earth; the curtain of the temple tore and the earth trembled and the mountains shook.

There were reports of earthquakes and mountains splitting all over the world.

Pro-Life Advocates Remember Terri Schaivo on Death Anniversary

On the anniversary of her 13-day starvation and dehydration death at the hands of her former husband, pro-life advocates are remembering Terri Schiavo and promising to help disabled patients like her.

Kristan Hawkins, the executive director of Students for Life of America, will be speaking today at the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network’s symposium at Ave Maria School of Law. She spoke with LifeNews.com before the event, where she will touch on prenatal diagnosis and health care’s effects on special needs patients.

“We honor Terri Schiavo today, by speaking at the Medical Ethics Symposium at Ave Maria School of Law. Her fight for Life reflects the importance of caring for those with special needs, especially with end of life decisions and prenatal diagnosis,” Hawkins said. “In both cases, pro-lifers need to stand for the most defenseless among us.”

Michael Voris responds to a Catholic college student’s email.

First ..the email ..

“Hello!  I am writing on behalf of a few of my friends who go to [a university].

I first want to thank you for the work you guys do.  The information that you provide in your videos has helped my few friends and I begin the conversion process of some protestants.  I really want to express my gratitude for this.

However, we have a huge problem.  The Newman Center on campus is such a problem for all Catholics here.  For example, one of our priests here preaches about being a “flexible” Catholic.

Another priest tells students that their sexual activity on campus is okay.  My friends and I went to this workshop on developing a relationship with God.  These old women there spent time discussing about how the Church “is not black and white” and “has many in-consistencies.”

This was all being taught by the Director of Religious Education at the parish!  My friends and I knew it was bad, but we had no idea.  The reason why I am writing this is because I don’t know what to do.

The spiritual damage to all of the students who go the the Newman Center is sickening and saddening.  What should we, as faithful Catholics, do besides just pray?  We pray for things to change all the time, but on a more active role what can we do to help change the situation?

Thank you so much.  The work you do is amazing.  I pray for this ministry every day!

God bless you!”

Who would have thunk it: James Bond – a Catholic?

Pierce Brosnan admits that he might not have learned all he needed to know about math from the Christian Brothers in Ireland, but the teachers imparted one thing that has stayed with him to this day – his Catholic faith.

Knute Rockne, Catholic convert, on the 80th anniversary of his death

If Rockne was merely the greatest coach who ever lived (his 13-season record of 105 wins, 12 loses and 5 ties, still remains the best ever in college football) his death at forty-three would not have brought such grief, nor would his legend have been so lasting. Son of Norwegian immigrants, Rock came to America at the age of five after his father’s two-wheel carry-all buggy won an award at the Chicago World’s Fair of 1893. Knute learned the game of football in the rough and tumble Windy City neighborhood of Logan Square, under the watchful eye of (I’m not kidding!) “an Irish copper named O’Goole.” Knute’s dad Lars wasn’t keen on college, so Rockne earned his way to Notre Dame (then cheaper than the University of Illinois!) by working in the mail room for five years before entering Our Lady’s University, “the lone Norse Protestant invader of a Catholic stronghold,” a balding broken-nosed freshman, at the age of twenty-two.

More on this from the National Catholic Register

Why is this news? Sister’s book is contrary to the authentic Catholic faith.

Sister Johnson is a prominent feminist theologian and a former president of the Catholic Theological Society of America and the American Theological Society, an ecumenical organization. She belongs to a religious order in New York, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Brentwood.

The Rev. Thomas Weinandy, executive director of the bishops’ Secretariat for Doctrine, said in an interview: “The primary concern was not over feminism or nonfeminism. The bishops are saying that the book does not adequately treat a Catholic understanding of God.”

Editor’s note: The simple fact is, a huge number of today’s Catholic sisters are Catholic in name only, and that poses a serious danger to the spiritual welfare of the Catholic faithful.
