In Defense of Archbishop Viganó

By |2024-06-23T01:38:24+00:00June 22nd, 2024|Theology|

Last week, Archbishop Viganó wrote this on his site: "The Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith has informed me, with a simple email, of the initiation of an extrajudicial penal trial against me, with the accusation of having committed the crime of schism and charging me of having denied the legitimacy of 'Pope Francis' of having broken communion 'with Him' and of having rejected the Second Vatican Council. I have been summoned to the Palace of the Holy Office on June 20, in person or represented by a canon lawyer. I assume that the sentence has already been prepared, given that it is an extrajudicial process.  I regard the [...]

Bad and Good Catholic Art

By |2024-06-19T15:30:50+00:00June 20th, 2024|Theology|

The top-left picture was drawn by Fr. Mario Rupnik SJ.  The top-right is an icon I snapped at the Greek Catholic Church in Athens earlier this year.  National Catholic Register wrote about the Jesuit who drew the above left picture: "Father Rupnik, a priest and artist, has been accused of spiritual, psychological, and sexual abuse of religious sisters. He was removed from the Jesuits last June."  Even the Knights of Columbus wanted his removed from the National Basilica in DC as Detroit Catholic reported.  It's unfortunate that "art" which mocks Our Lord and Our Lady and the saints is asked to be removed only once "the artist" is found to [...]

More Reasons for Kids Not to Have a Cell Phone

By |2024-06-18T21:14:47+00:00June 18th, 2024|Theology|

Many conservative and traditional Catholic parents know the dangers of kids having cell phones.  These dangers include inappropriate images and bullying. But most good Catholic parents somehow still think their children are beyond the reach of predators because they have relatively-obedient children.  In this article, you're going see why that's you need to put away that pipe-dream forever. Ex-SEAL Shawn Ryan now has over 2.5M subscribers on his YouTube channel alone, not to mention many more listeners on other forums.  He's a conservative podcaster who recently became a Christian.  A year ago, he twice had on his show a 30 year old man named Ryan Montgomery who is known as [...]

Then Jesus said to them, “You will all fall away because of me this night. For it is written, ‘I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.’ But after I am raised up, I will go before you to Galilee.” Peter answered him, “Though they all fall away because of you, I will never fall away.” Jesus said to him, “Truly, I tell you, this very night, before the rooster crows, you [...]

Going from the ’55 Missal to the ’45 Missal

By |2024-06-15T06:25:52+00:00June 15th, 2024|Life|

As you know, for the first seven years of my priesthood, I offered the new sacraments.  The last seven years I have offered exclusively the old sacraments.  But now I'm switching from a 1962 TLM Missal to a 1939 TLM Missal.  This has little to do with the papacy or obedience or rebellion or political statements or trying "to be more trad than the next priest." To be honest, when I first heard traditionalists speak of the decision to Restorethe54 in place of the 1962 Missal, I thought, "Wow, nothing is good enough for these snotty traditionalists!"  (And this was after I had switched to the TLM that I was [...]

Flow-Chart For Salvation-Emergencies

By |2024-06-14T21:49:57+00:00June 13th, 2024|Theology|

What do you do if you come across a dying person?  Should you prioritize getting a paramedic or a priest?  What can a lay person do for a dying person who is baptized or unbaptized?  What should a priest do for a dying person who is baptized or unbaptized? The traditional answers are relatively simple.  They come from what the Bible and Catholic Church has always taught.  The following Flow-Chart For Salvation-Emergencies is going to focus on the faith-aspects of helping people die.  As an ex-paramedic who has come across a lot of emergencies even as a priest (and I wrote about one here) one needs to consider both the [...]

St. Catherine’s Letter to Cardinals Under an Antipope

By |2024-06-11T13:00:55+00:00June 11th, 2024|Theology|

These days, St. Catherine of Siena is frequently quoted in her love of the pope of her day (as well she should be.) However, she is less frequently quoted in what she had to say about the antipope of her day.  There have been 20-40 antipopes in history, so a discussion on this topic is not “anti-Catholic," or "schismatic," as the following account of St. Catherine clearly demonstrates. The website Virgo Sacrata reads: “In 1378, after the election of Pope Urban VI, the majority of Cardinals, Prelates and the people recognized Clement VIl as pope, even though he was in reality an antipope. Thirteen out of sixteen cardinals questioned the [...]
