Movie Review: “What is a Woman?”

By |2022-06-12T19:51:58+00:00June 9th, 2022|Theology|

The Basics: What is a Woman? is a documentary done by Matt Walsh and The Daily Wire. Matt travels the world to ask "What is a woman?" precisely to catch Western society in their contradiction of simultaneously fighting for "women's rights" while refraining from defining a woman because of limitations of "gender fluidity."  The only common sense answers comes from a Maasai tribe in Kenya and at the end of the movie, Matt's wife. Negatives: The only negatives in this movie is the immodesty. The first half of the movie has some immodestly dressed women. The last quarter of the movie has some very disturbing TikTok images of teen girls [...]

Season After Pentecost or “Ordinary Time”?

By |2022-06-06T21:25:35+00:00June 7th, 2022|Theology|

p/c Star of the Sea, San Francisco. The 1950 Carmelite devotional Divine Intimacy reads: “The Father and the Word, mutually beholding Their infinite goodness and beauty, love each other from all eternity, and the expression of this unitive love is a third Person, the Holy Spirit. As the Word is generated by the Father by way of knowledge, so the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son by way of love. The Holy Spirit is, therefore, the terminus, and the effusion of the reciprocal love of the Father and the Son, an effusion so substantial and perfect that it is a Person, the third Person of the Most [...]

Was the Church Formed on Good Friday or on Pentecost?

By |2022-06-05T17:13:27+00:00June 5th, 2022|Theology|

The Church Fathers say that the Catholic Church was formed on Good Friday.  Indeed, this is when the water flowing from the pierced Sacred Heart of Jesus was more than symbolic for the water that would one day wash us clean of sin in baptism.  Was not the Roman soldier, St. Longinus, washed clean by that very water as he pierced the Sacred Heart of Jesus with his own spear and believed in Him?  Furthermore, the Church Fathers teach that the Most Precious Blood that flowed from Christ's pierced heart on the day of His crucifixion is literally the same as the blood that fills the priest's chalice after the [...]

What Happens Spiritually in an Abortion

By |2022-06-01T05:23:54+00:00May 31st, 2022|Theology|

Gloria Polo, a middle-aged Columbian woman, had a near death experience in May of 1995 when she was struck by lightning in Bogotá.  After cardiac arrest (but before God gave her another chance on earth) she saw the effects of all of her life's actions on earth from a spiritual perspective.  Her initial sentence (before resuscitation) was hell. I cleaned up a translation from the Spanish and put it on my blog here a few years ago.  The entire thing is worth reading.  But the section regarding what happens spiritually in an abortion will change you forever.  I extricate two parts from her above linked account and quote them verbatim [...]

What Does It Mean to Be a Priest “In Good Standing”?

By |2022-05-30T12:55:14+00:00May 28th, 2022|Life|

This weekend, I was at the FSSP ordinations in Nebraska at the invitation of one of the mothers of a newly ordained priest.  Sadly, the day after the ordinations and just after the first Masses of the newly ordained, one rather courageous FSSP priest told me there was a rumor going around their fellow FSSP priests that I was suspended. Apparently, the other Frat priests running this rumor mill were too lazy to look at my blog (which shows I'm in good standing on many other pages besides this one) and were not courageous enough to simply ask me my status in my diocese. Actually, a few FSSP priests asked [...]

Did Jesus Die “For All” or “For Many”?

By |2022-05-25T23:32:26+00:00May 26th, 2022|Theology|

Jesus died for all: My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the Righteous. He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world (pro totius mundi.)—1 John 2:1-2. Jesus died for many: And He took a cup, and when He had given thanks, He gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you, for this is My Blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many (pro multis) for the forgiveness of sins."—Mt [...]
