Pope Francis meets with Cardinal Cupich after Biden inauguration statement dispute

“Never tell anyone outside the Family what you are thinking again.” (Line from “The Godfather”)


Priest: We as a Church weren’t there for God’s people when they needed us.

Over the past nine months, the Church has given the impression that the sacraments are not all that relevant and that we have little to offer during a crisis. We must never allow this to happen again.

Isn’t that special!!!

Today’s Question: What do people learn from attending Mass?

At Mass, through the Catholic Ministerial Priesthood and the power of the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ becomes truly present on the holy altar, under the auspices of bread and wine.

Then, in and through Jesus Christ, the entire congregation, along with the whole Church (everywhere) offers Jesus (who is the one time, once for all, perfect and eternal sacrifice of Calvary) up to God the Father, for the forgiveness of sins, for the salvation of the world, plus anything else that we might need.

There’s also a whole lot of repenting, thanks and praise and glorification of God going on, as well.

In the process, we read from the Old and New Testaments of the Bible and the priest delivers an appropriate homily/sermon based on those particular readings. We also receive the real presence of Jesus Christ, in Holy Communion.

What do we Catholics learn from all this? 1) God loves us in a very personal and intimate way; 2) God provides for all our needs; 3) It doesn’t get much better than that, this side of Heaven!

Lower your shields and surrender your ships. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile.

Joe Scheidler, Pro-Life Icon, dead at age 93

“The Pro-Life Action League is grieved to report the passing away of our founder, Joe Scheidler, ‘the Godfather of Pro-Life Activism.’ Joe died this morning peacefully, surrounded by the family of which he was so proud,” tweeted his organization on Monday.
His son Erik, Executive Director of the Chicago-based pro-life organization, said “He marched with Dr. King in 1965, and the impact it had on him was to see that regular people can have a real impact in the cause of justice, and thus, he decided to recruit regular Americans to the fight, in favor of life and against abortion.”

Editor’s Note: I had the privilege of meeting Joe Scheidler and his wonderful family several times over several years, at the Washington D.C. March for Life. Joe is a genuine hero, a courageous individual and a man of true faith in God.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord,
and may perpetual light shine upon him.
May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

Maybe Nancy should be impeached (recalled)

Pelosi, Tweeting after the 2016 election.

Thanks to: the-american-catholic.com

Lindsey Graham suggested Sunday Nancy Pelosi is to blame for thousands of pro-Trump protesters breaching the Capitol earlier this month, claiming it is the House Speaker’s job to provide Capitol security.

‘To see people come and take over the Capitol – the House and the Senate – beat officers, defile the seat of government. How in the hell could that happen? Where was Nancy Pelosi? It’s her job to provide Capitol security,’ the South Carolina Republican, and staunch ally of President Donald Trump said during an interview on ‘Sunday Morning Futures.’

He added: ‘We’ll get to the bottom of that.’

Pope Francis says everybody needs to get Covid-19 vaccine, but regarding Baptism, not so much.

“God’s mercy is so great,” the Pope continued, “that even those who are not baptized receive it and can trust in the resurrection if their hearts are open.”

“I believe that ethically everyone must take the vaccine – said the Holy Father – it is an ethical option, because you risk your health, your life, but you also risk the lives of others”. “Next week” – added the Pope – we will start doing it here, in the Vatican, and I have booked. It must be done “.
