Accurate scholarship can Unearth [Read More…]

This world is not our home

A reminder from the Maker and Manufacturer of the Human Race: For here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city which is to come. Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name. Do not neglect to [Read More…]

A good priest writes Fr. Pavone

My Fellow Priest: If you recover the body of a murder victim, please proceed as all priests are taught and obligated to proceed: (1) the body when brought into the church for a Funeral Mass is to be covered with a pall and placed near or before the altar, not upon it, and not naked; [Read More…]

Pavone doubles down

Second video desecration goes up. The prolife movement is completely off the rails if it thinks this is a good idea. Sacrilege for Jesus. Brilliant. Bp. Zurek: Please stop this man. [Read more…]

The Archdiocese of New York responds to Fr. Pavone’s Trump-inspired sacrilege

…here. Meanwhile, I talked to the Diocese of Amarillo this AM and they tell me they are drowning in protest and share the feelings of the protesters in no uncertain terms. I’m told by other sources that there are efforts underway to figure out what to do in response to Fr. Pavone’s shocking and offensive [Read More…]

One of the many challenges facing many Catholics in the aftermath of the election

… will be helping them separate the Church from the political subculture of conservative Catholic media outlet and Folk Heroes they have assumed to be identical with it. A number of people are, I fear, struggling with a shaken faith because their Folk Heroes have been revealed to have feet of clay. To them, I [Read More…]

Using the Unborn Dead Body as a Human Shield

…for your political agitprop is just wrong. Fr. Frank Pavone has really crossed a line here. The nature of heresy is not that it tells a falsehood. It’s that it tells a real truth of the faith and blows it up into a swollen and inflamed thing that blocks out the rest of the Church’s [Read More…]

So when I vote, I vote for the candidate whose presidency will result in fewer dead babies, because you have to start [Read More…]
