Benedict XVI on the Council

He is his typical insightful self: “There was the Council of the Fathers — the real Council — but there was also the Council of the media,” said Benedict in his valedictory to his priests. “It was almost a Council apart, and the world perceived the Council through the latter, through the media. Thus, the [Read More...]

More Proof of What a Liberal Disaster Pope Francis is

Here he is writing with naked approval of socialism: “Socialism took two main paths — the democratic and the totalitarian one. Democratic socialism became a healthy counterbalance to radically liberal positions in both existing models. It enriched and corrected them. It proved itself even when religious confessions took over. In England, it was the Catholic [Read More...]

Pope Benedict and the Logic of Gratuity

Here’s a nice little discussion of Pope  Benedict’s thinking from Fr. Barron: This touches, in an interesting way, on the discussions last week concerning libertarianism, as we well as on the two camps of Moral Theology, which tend to ask “What’s the least I have to do to make the cut?” vs. “How can I [Read More...]

Tod Worner Nails It

The only sense I can make of it comes from Galatians: “Now the works of the flesh are plain: fornication, impurity, licentiousness, 20 idolatry, [Read More...]

More Utopian Marxist Crap from the Pope

On the other hand, we can no longer regard so naively the liberal-capitalistic system (even with all the corrections it has since received) as the salvation of the world. We are no longer in the Kennedy-era, with its Peace Corps optimism; the Third World’s questions about the system may be partial, but they are not [Read More...]

Heretic Pope Betrays Church!

Pope Francis on not proselytizing: “The Church does not engage in proselytism. Instead, she grows by ‘attraction’: just as Christ ‘draws all to himself’ by the power of his love, culminating in the sacrifice of the Cross, so the Church fulfills her mission to the extent that, in union with Christ, she accomplishes every one [Read More...]

As Francis Continues to Neglect the Liturgy in Favor of All That Care for the Poor Crap….

…let’s cast our minds back to what a really good Pope had to say: “Love for the poor and the divine liturgy go hand in hand, love for the poor is liturgy” (Pope Benedict XVI, 1 October 2008). Man. The difference between these two is like night and day. Polar opposites. No wonder the MSM [Read More...]
