Things We Lost in the Fire

By |2023-05-08T14:15:14+00:00May 8th, 2023|Theology|

As seen in the picture I took above, I visited the new Immaculata Church in Kansas.  The new $42M Church was consecrated (dedicated to God) on the third of May, 2023. The Immaculata was built by the SSPX.  They are canonically-irregular but not schismatic.  Remember that in 2009 Pope Benedict XVI lifted the putative-excommunications previously placed on their bishops.  Even the current Vatican recognizes all their Masses as valid, and even all their confessions as both valid and licit.  Although I have no desire (nor intention) to leave my Archdiocese and apply to the SSPX, I very much admire their adherence to keeping the ancient Catholic faith during this time of near-global [...]

The Apostolic Pardon

By |2023-05-05T18:03:58+00:00May 5th, 2023|Theology|

What are "Last Rites"?  "Last Rites" is simply a compound-noun indicating the sacraments you hope to receive on your deathbed.  First, the priest hears your confession.  Then, you receive your final Holy Communion (aka Viaticum, literally "food for the journey.")  Then, the priest gives you "extreme unction" (a Latin/English compound-noun simply meaning "anointing at the extreme—or end—part of your life.")  After all of this, but before the Final Commendation of the Soul (of which I wrote about here for my mother) the dying person receives the Apostolic Pardon.  (I also gave this to my mother, but didn't write about it in the above-linked blog post because most of you already [...]

The Catechesis of Tradition

By |2023-05-04T15:13:00+00:00May 4th, 2023|Theology|

The above is a picture from the international Eucharistic Congress in 1926 at Soldier Field in Chicago.  The faith and devotion in the picture seems obvious. I was at this night of entertainment in Rio De Janeiro in 2013 before the final "World Youth Day Mass" the following morning. However, great faith also appears present at the above picture at the Evening Vigil before the final Mass at World Youth Day in Rio De Janeiro in 2013.  In fact, many more people were in Rio than at the Eucharistic Congress in 1926.  Also, the Eucharist was exposed in a huge monstrance for probably a longer time Rio than [...]

When Can You Judge Another?

By |2023-05-03T01:59:03+00:00May 2nd, 2023|Theology|

When can you judge another?  The short answer is that you can never judge another's intention, but you are required to judge the object of another's deeds when he interacts with you or tries to teach you.  You are especially required to judge the object of another's deeds when his attempts at influencing you will affect your salvation or the salvation of those who are entrusted to you. Consider some quotes from Our Lord and the saints: Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you.—Mt 7:1-6 When some monks [...]

New Orleans Flashback

By |2023-04-29T14:53:42+00:00April 29th, 2023|Life|

In the Spring of 2017, I was on loan to a TLM-parish in the diocese of Houma-Thibodaux, Louisiana. Gibson is in the bayou and I often point out I had alligators as closer geographic neighbors than humans. But I often spent time in New Orleans when I got lonely in the swamp. One day, I was walking near the horse track in New Orleans before Mardi Gras. I think it was the Monday before Mardi Gras, but you have to understand that "Mardi Gras season" in NOLA begins in January, and lasts for months. Now, even the homeless (and the street-people with homes) get tired of seeing certain costumes among [...]

Why “Apostolic Catholicism”?

By |2023-04-23T01:53:02+00:00April 27th, 2023|Theology|

Why do I always reference "Apostolic Catholicism" in my blogs and podcasts?  Because I am convinced that what "normy-Catholics" label as "traditional Catholicism" is really nothing more than "Apostolic Catholicism."  That is, our true faith and true liturgy goes back to what Christ gave to the Apostles. Granted, it's very easy for normy Catholics to mock traditionalists as being stuck in a time-warp to the 1950s.  But our beef with modernism touches not on the level of wax in mustaches or which whiskey goes with a certain cigar.  Rather, it has to do with the salvation of souls all across the world.  You see, if the Catholic clergy of the [...]
