May Catholics Pray With Non-Catholics?

By |2024-03-27T02:12:14+00:00January 30th, 2024|Theology|

In the old moral manuals, Catholics could occasionally pray with Protestants in private environments as long as these requirements were met: "It is not forbidden to pray or sing privately with heretics if the prayers or songs are not heretical and no scandal is given.”—Moral Theology #125 by Fr. Heribut Jone, OFM Cap, 1929. However, Catholics doing public or liturgical prayer with Protestants or other heretics has always been strictly forbidden. See the Anglican Vespers which took place at St. Peter's, p/c LifeSite News.  The prohibition against Catholics praying publicly with heretics or infidels has been clearly outlined by Popes and Saints for nearly 2,000 years: “The Apostolic See has [...]

Today's pod is about Christ teaching the Particular Judgment and the Final Judgment. We also briefly look at why Catholics reject the rapture. For a closer look at the errors of the rapture, see Dr. Taylor Marshall’s #1036 “Should Christians support Israel?” at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-sfjokEF6I8

“The Anger of Man Worketh Not the Justice of God.”

By |2024-01-28T21:28:47+00:00January 28th, 2024|Life|

In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil. Whosoever is not just, is not of God, nor he that loveth not his brother. For this is the declaration, which you have heard from the beginning, that you should love one another. Not as Cain, who was of the wicked one, and killed his brother. And wherefore did he kill him? Because his own works were wicked: and his brother's just. Wonder not, brethren, if the world hate you. We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not, abideth in death. Whosoever hateth his brother [...]

St. Maximilian Kolbe Rejected “Ecumenism.”

By |2024-01-25T13:34:48+00:00January 25th, 2024|Theology|

In 2022, I wrote in an article titled Ecumenical: Old and New Definitions and it included these two definitions: "Ecumenical for the first thousand years of Christianity was an adjective to describe dogmatic meetings of orthodox bishops who cared about accurately defining the Catholic Faith," and New Advent's definition: "Ecumenical Councils are those to which the bishops, and others entitled to vote, are convoked from the whole world (oikoumene) under the presidency of the pope or his legates, and the decrees of which, having received papal confirmation, bind all Christians.'" Unfortunately, the term "ecumenism" has been commandeered in the 20th century by "progressive Catholics" to mean what was once called "the [...]

Marian Devotion In A Church-Eclipse

By |2024-01-22T14:33:28+00:00January 23rd, 2024|Theology|

The Church will be in eclipse, the world will be in dismay... Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of Antichrist.—Our Lady of La Salette. Mary said the above words in a Vatican-approved apparition from the 19th century.  There's a lot of debate in the Catholic world today about this. In the year 2000, Catholic Answers had an article claiming it was misused by post-Vatican II traditionalists: “What is absurd is the radical traditionalist claim that the alleged prophecy of Our Lady of La Salette may be applied to Rome today… Radical traditionalists often seem to have a defective understanding of what counts as apostasy. It is much [...]

Despair and False-Hope Kill the Soul

By |2024-01-19T10:40:19+00:00January 18th, 2024|Theology|

A public apostate recently stated, "This isn't dogma, just my thought. I like to think of hell as being empty. I hope it is." Many others online repeated the sentiment. But they're wrong. First of all, it's infallible dogma that not just demons, but men and women are in hell. The Council of Trent states in chapter 3 in the Decree on Justification: “But, though [Christ] died for all, yet all do not receive the benefit of His death, but those only unto whom the merit of His passion is communicated.” Let's also look at why it's not more hopeful to think of an empty-hell. First of all, St. Augustine [...]

“The Church Shall Be Scattered.”—Cardinal Manning

By |2024-01-16T14:24:14+00:00January 16th, 2024|Theology|

Today we are going to look at what two British Cardinals of the 19th century wrote about the last group of Catholics.  The first paragraph comes from Cardinal Newman: This is what I have to say about the last persecution and its signs. And surely it is profitable to think about it, though we be quite mistaken in the detail. For instance, after all perhaps it may not be a persecution of blood and death, but of craft and subtlety only—not of miracles, but of natural wonders and powers of human skill, human acquirements in the hands of the devil. Satan may adopt the more alarming weapons of deceit—he may [...]
