The TLM Is Not the Place to Teach the TLM

By |2024-02-13T17:03:51+00:00February 11th, 2024|Life|

I only ski every three years, and this week was one of those years.  I did two days in a row up in Summit Co., CO.  My brother in law's parents were kind enough to let me use their home.  The above is a picture of my travel Traditional Latin Mass (TLM) kit set up in their home.  I was alone in that home most of the time there.  (One buddy who joined me one day for skiing attended one Mass in there, and did well in attending it even though he goes normally to both Masses.) I mention he "did well" because that is not something that just goes [...]

The Filioque in the Eastern Fathers

By |2024-02-07T15:05:57+00:00February 8th, 2024|Theology|

On my YouTube video series Roman Catechism of Trent (RCT) we have been discussing the Trinity lately, especially "the Filioque."  The Filioque is Latin for "and the Son," as you say in the Nicene Creed. This means that you believe "in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life, proceeding from the Father and the Son" (et in Spíritum Sanctum... qui ex Patre Filióque procédit.)  However, most Eastern Orthodox insist the Holy Spirit proceeds only from the Father.  Thus, most Eastern Orthodox reject the Filioque statement. To be sure, there are two debates at hand (not just two sides) but actually two debates.  The first debate (upon which this [...]

Fatima and Fiducia

By |2024-02-05T23:58:09+00:00February 6th, 2024|Theology|

Recently, Fr. James Martin SJ spoke to the bishops of Ireland at Knock, Ireland.  Our Lady of Knock (top right) is an approved Marian apparition in Ireland from the 19th century.   LifeSite News reported on what happened with the Irish bishops: "A trusted source in Ireland told LifeSiteNews that the meeting included discussions on how to implement the blessing of homosexual 'couples' and even the desire to implement homosexual 'marriage.'" Obviously, it's a blasphemous travesty that such filth from a Jesuit and the Irish bishops would besmirch the Shrine of Our Lady to an island that held once purity so intensely. I suppose this purity left Ireland a long time [...]

Stockholm Syndrome in the Catholic Church

By |2024-02-01T19:36:29+00:00February 1st, 2024|Theology|

The prophesy of St. Francis of Assisi reads: “At the time of this tribulation a man, not canonically elected, will be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavour to draw many into error and death... Some preachers will keep silent about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them, not a true Pastor, but a destroyer.” —Works of the Seraphic Father St. Francis of Assisi, published in 1882 by the London-based Catholic publishing house R. Washbourne, 1882, [...]

May Catholics Pray With Non-Catholics?

By |2024-01-30T19:37:35+00:00January 30th, 2024|Theology|

Although there is some debate as to if Catholics can lead non-Catholics in private prayer (such as grace at meals) the Catholic Church's teaching on Catholics participating in public prayer (as in liturgical prayer, such as the Anglican Vespers seen above at St. Peter's recently, p/c LifeSite News) is consistent:  They may not.  The prohibition against Catholics praying with heretics or infidels has been clearly outlined by Popes and Saints for nearly 2,000 years: “The Apostolic See has never allowed its subjects to take part in the assemblies of non-Catholics.”—Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos, #10, 6 January 1928 “It is not permitted to be present at the sacred rites of [...]

VLX 144: Mt 24:36-51. “As in the Days of Noah.”

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 [...]
