The Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary to Elizabeth.

At Rome, on the Aurelian Way, the birthday of the holy martyrs Processus and Martinian, who were baptized by the blessed apostle Peter in the Mamertine Prison. After being struck on the mouth, racked, scourged with knotted ropes and whips strung with pieces of metal; after being beaten with rods and exposed to the flames, they were beheaded in the days of Nero, thus obtaining the crown of martyrdom. read more

“Dolan Out” the Hush Money, Eminence?

Okay, first – the evidence has not yet been publicized nor the particulars of any deal then-Abp. Dolan of Milwaukee may or may not have been party to. So, not fair – yet! – to render a serious opinion.

We’ll wait. Then, see.

In the meantime, the intrigue – behind how a gentleman whose entire public persona is eerily similar to Ed McMahon’s sits at the helm of one of the most important archdioceses in the world; gets away with yukkin’ it up with the international baby murder / sodomite industries’ most important asset; and “equates” false religious errors with the Catholic Faith – remains… well, much more than merely intriguing. read more

To Trad Priests… Communion considerations.

The subject of who should go up to the Communion Rail was brought up recently on the Feast of Corpus Christi. The surprising answer after much a do was “Everyone, except the non believer” based upon the following spiritual considerations:

That The Eucharist, as a Sacrament, imparts Grace. Thus it is more pious to receive Our Lord as often as possible than it is to do as some mistakenly do by not receiving Him but once a year in the false notion of showing Him more respect. What practices more love: Visiting more often, actually being with a person more or saying to them – “I’ll only see you once this year to show you how much greater I love you”? By His Grace we are changed not by our own actions. Thus we can only get closer to God by actually getting closer to God. read more

Santo Subito Mania & Lourdes Floods: Coincidence?

Apparently the first flood at Lourdes, in 2012, was coterminous with the planned arrival of some sort of relic of JPII in the cause of furthering his canonization parade, led by then-Pope Benedict XVI who has since resigned and now co-authors encyclicals with some fella from South America who seems pretty out of sorts about actually being the pope.

And apparently the waters flooded Lourdes again as soon as the Vatican decided that the needed miracle to declare Wojtyla a saint had been “established”. read more

Abp. LeFebvre: Liberalism IS a Religion

This appeared on another Trad forum. The translation is awful, to say the least. But the intent and message come through loud and clear, nevertheless.

ARCHBISHOP LEFEBVRE: LIBERALISM IS NOT ONLY A SIN, IT IS A RELIGION.

This conference, an incredible gift, was given by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre in Madrid on Tuesday, October 28, 1986. One day after the scandal of Assisi. This is an extensive extract of that conference, the magazine published by Catholic Tradition No December 23, 1986. Pages 1-13. read more

Opponents of gay marriage are “enemies of the human race” per Supreme Court

ScaliaAndStThomasMore

Dissenting from this morning’s opinion on the Defense of Marriage Act, Justice Antonin Scalia – as expected – holds nothing back.

In a ripping dissent, Scalia says that Justice Anthony Kennedy and his colleagues in the majority have resorted to calling opponents of gay marriage “enemies of the human race.”

But to defend traditional marriage is not to condemn, demean, or humiliate those who would prefer other arrangements, any more than to defend the Constitution of the United States is to con- demn, demean, or humiliate other constitutions. To hurl such accusations so casually demeans this institution. In the majority’s judgment, any resistance to its holding is beyond the pale of reasoned disagreement. To question its high-handed invalidation of a presumptively valid statute is to act (the majority is sure) with the purpose to “dis- parage,” “injure,” “degrade,” “demean,” and “humiliate” our fellow human beings, our fellow citizens, who are homo- sexual. All that, simply for supporting an Act that did no more than codify an aspect of marriage that had been unquestioned in our society for most of its existence— indeed, had been unquestioned in virtually all societies for virtually all of human history. It is one thing for a society to elect change; it is another for a court of law to impose change by adjudging those who oppose it hostes humani generis, enemies of the human race. read more
