The Amazing Rhythm of Catholic Life!

The Amazing Rhythm of Catholic Life!

Many Catholics today believe we no longer do actions of self-denial on Fridays throughout the year. The reality is that this continues to be strongly encouraged as a regular practice for Catholics, while it is no longer “binding under the pain of sin.” From the USCCB: “Friday itself remains a special day of penitential observance […]

Free To Be You!

Free To Be You!

This is kinda personal, and you might think I am a little crazy, but I pray all day. And, God has a way, at times, of being hysterically funny. Like this morning (and here could be the crazy part) … I got a cramp in my leg, and I bounded out of bed saying (in […]

THE FRUITS OF AD ORIENTEM WORSHIP

THE FRUITS OF AD ORIENTEM WORSHIP

This is a letter I just sent to a priest friend. I wrote it because I don’t believe we priests should be frightened anymore. I agree with a recent post that said, while we take our time, souls are being lost. We all know, in our bones, that God wants this … let’s simply obey […]

THE DEVIL'S BIG THREE

THE DEVIL’S BIG THREE

INTERESTING INSIGHT – I find it interesting that there are three topics that seem so off limits – “taboo” – that one receives such a visceral response from their defenders that one risks having one’s reputation destroyed by those who will resort to utter cruelty to, seemingly, punish those who attempt to throw light on […]

THE NEW EVANGELIZATION: FIRST THINGS FIRST

THE NEW EVANGELIZATION: FIRST THINGS FIRST

AKA – A Catholic Priest’s New Awakening! A few days ago, I encouraged the pest control guy (while he was setting traps in my house) to come and check out the Mass on Sunday morning. Just yesterday, I said the same thing to the checkout guy at Kwik Trip. Both of these guys had admitted […]

Five Myths About Worship in the Early Church

Five Myths About Worship in the Early Church

From Crisis Magazine: As the forthcoming new translation of the Roman Missal debunks the myth that liturgical language must be so banal that even the muppets on Sesame Street can understand it, it’s a good time to examine five other untruths that have been wreaking havoc on the Church’s worship in recent decades. 1. Mass facing […]

Why Millennials Long for Liturgy

Why Millennials Long for Liturgy

From the American Conservative: America’s youth are leaving churches in droves. One in four young adults choose “unaffiliated” when asked about their religion, according to a 2012 Public Religion Research Institute poll, and 55 percent of those unaffiliated youth once had a religious identification when they were younger. Yet amidst this exodus, some church leaders […]

"Who am I to judge?"

“Who am I to judge?”

From Fr. Longenecker: If any off the cuff remark is ever destined to haunt the undisciplined public figure who let it fly it will be Pope Francis’ now famous comment about a homosexual–”Who am I to judge?” So an American state legislator quotes the pope to argue for same sex marriage, and now Catholic high […]

Chivalry is out of style

Chivalry is out of style

By Matt Walsh: This past Christmas Eve, I went to church with my wife, my sister, and my brother-in-law. We arrived a half hour early, which was a half hour too late. All of the seats were taken, and even the standing room in the back was filling quickly. The four of us were able […]

The Bull in the Bullying Hype

The Bull in the Bullying Hype

I wish I wrote this article.  This goes a long way to underscore the AMAZING format of the Knights of Divine Mercy. Men who come together to bend a knee to their Commander-in-Chief – Our Lord, Jesus Christ – while they encourage each other to train in the true virtues needed to accomplish our mission as […]

50 years ago today: BUGNINICARE!

50 years ago today: BUGNINICARE!

From Father Zuhlsdorf: Today is the 50th anniversary of the promulgation of Sacrosanctum Concilium. 50 years. FIFTY. YEARS. I went back into the archives of the blog to find my post about… Bugninicare! UNIVERSAL SPIRITUAL-CARE REFORM FOR THE CATHOLIC CHURCH (Socialized Worship) Taking his cue from post-war European national health care programs, Annibale Bugnini, assisted by […]
