Advent Message to Benefactors and Listeners

By |2021-12-07T21:36:41+00:00November 30th, 2021|Theology|

Dear friends, family, readers, listeners and benefactors—both spiritual and material, Ave Maria! I wanted to thank you all for all of your support this past year. First, some great news: My VLX (Patristic Bible Study) and CPX (Catechism of Pope St. Pius X) and TCE (Theology and Current Events) reached it's first year of production about midway through 2021. Across all forums like YouTube and Apple podcasts, it is now getting about a million listens a year! It has been my dream for a long time to teach Scripture and catechesis as a traveling missionary, so this was an answer to a prayer in a roundabout way. I thank God (and [...]

The Door to Fatima’s Modesty is Unlocked by Pope Pius XI

By |2021-11-22T02:50:37+00:00November 25th, 2021|Theology|

In 1917 in Fatima, Portugal, Mary, the Mother of God, appeared to three shepherd children named Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco.  One of the things they saw in this apparition was demons and humans in hell.  At an apparition later that year,  70,000 people (including atheists and communists) saw the miracle of the sun.  A few years later, on the topic of modesty, Our Lady of Fatima said to the young visionary Jacinta Marto before her death in 1920:  “Certain fashions will be introduced that will offend Our Lord very much,” and “Woe to women lacking in modesty,” and “More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh than for [...]

Fr. Altman Was Correct: You Can’t Be a Catholic and a Democrat

By |2021-11-22T02:47:23+00:00November 23rd, 2021|Theology|

During the stolen US election last year, a bishop put on Twitter: "The right wing tells us bishops that we’re in the back pocket of the Democratic Party; the left wing tells us that we’re in the back pocket of the Republican Party. I’m just trying to stay centered on Jesus Christ and His Church."  This is a very misleading tweet, first of all because the democratic party has been giving hundreds of millions of dollars to the US bishops many years back including $91,000,000 from democrats to the USCCB in 2016.   It's also misleading because of a reason found in a reply on Twitter:  "Your Eminence, you have [...]

TCE 33: The “Greater Good” Is Not a Catholic Moral System

By |2021-11-20T19:06:48+00:00November 20th, 2021|Podcasts, Sermons, Talks|

TCE (Theology and Current Events) #33 tackles when we should make decisions for “the greater good.” Does the end ever justify the means? Of course not. *** This podcast is a reading of my blog here https://padreperegrino.org/2021/11/greatergood/ quoting -Pope John Paul II’s Veritatis Splendor at https://www.vatican.va/content/john-paul-ii/en/encyclicals/documents/hf_jp-ii_enc_06081993_veritatis-splendor.html -and “Conservative Momma” on FB at https://www.facebook.com/100044275487132/posts/435424134610099/?d=n https://rumble.com/embed/vmr0hp/?pub=4

The “Greater Good” is Not a Catholic Moral System

By |2021-11-18T14:29:11+00:00November 18th, 2021|Theology|

Eugenics, the notion that the strong can kill the weak, is built on the philosophy that population reduction may have to be done for the greater good of society. It's built on the part of Darwinian evolution called natural selection and survival of the fittest. Under this philosophy, the Nazi Holocaust was simply a moral attempt to cleanse their own society of weaker Jews "for the greater good" of society, as they Nazis might say. Why then do so many on the left today say that we have to make decisions on COVID "for the greater good"? Now, in their defense, libs do not want another holocaust. And proportionate decisions [...]
