In the early days of December 1805, a handful of prominent politicians received formal invitations to join President Thomas Jefferson for a White House dinner.
Such entreaties were not uncommon: Jefferson frequently hosted lawmakers for political working dinners at the White House, almost always commencing them about 3:30 in the afternoon, shortly after the House or Senate had adjourned for the day.
But this gathering, scheduled for Dec. 9, would be slightly different.
“dinner will be on the table precisely at sun-set – ” the invitations read. “The favour of an answer is asked.”
The occasion was the presence of a Tunisian envoy to the United States, Sidi Soliman Mellimelli, who had arrived in the country just the week before, in the midst of America’s ongoing conflict with what were then known as the Barbary States. read more

Pope’s doctrine chief: Those in ‘grave sin’ cannot receive Communion until ‘contrition, confession, and reparation’

ROME, Italy, June 21, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Holy Communion cannot be given to Catholics who have left a “valid” marriage and have become civilly divorced and remarried to someone else until they have repented of and confessed “all grave sin,” said the Vatican’s doctrinal chief, Cardinal Gerhard Müller, in a new interview published today.
“Contrition, confession, and reparation are the three necessary elements for absolution. These are the immediate conditions for the receiving the Holy Eucharist, Jesus Christ, who is the same divine person who forgives us,” he said in the interview with the National Catholic Register’s Ed Pentin. read more

For the past two years, the Fort Hood Traditional Latin Mass community has celebrated All Souls Day with an outdoor Mass offered on the hood of a Korean era Army Jeep. While the Mass is offered for the souls of all the faithful departed, it is especially for soldiers who fell in battle, including Father Emil J. Kapaun, chaplain for the 8th Calvary during the Korean War. Fr. Kapaun was famously photographed offering the Mass on the hood of a Jeep during the war, shortly before his capture and eventual death, at the hands of the North Koreans. read more

St. John Bosco’s Stolen Brain Recovered. Monumentally Icky Crime Solved.

To be blunt, while I “get” the venerable tradition, stretching back to persecutions under Nero, Diocletian, etc., of preserving first class relics (usually bones) of martyrs (among which company the honorable Don Bosco was NOT-objectively), this latest exercise in extra-super-duperly-“pious” (?) Mediterranean-style sensationalism – in the light of a stupid criminal act solved quickly by competent Italian police work – did induce a certain gag reflex…

Pope: It’s a ‘very grave sin’ for Catholics to try to convert Orthodox

Claire Chretien

GEORGIA, October 4, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — It is a “very grave sin against ecumenism” for Catholics to try to convert Orthodox Christians, Pope Francis said during the second day of his trip to the Eurasian country of Georgia.

“Let the theologians study the abstract realities of theology,” the pontiff said. “But what should I do with a friend, neighbor, an Orthodox person? Be open, be a friend. ‘But should I make efforts to convert him or her?’ There is a very grave sin against ecumenism: proselytism. We should never proselytize the Orthodox! They are our brothers and sisters, disciples of Jesus Christ.” read more

Re. Fr. Normandin (Canadian Priest)

First, thank you everyone for your prayers but Father is still alive and the report I passed on was based on another priest’s announcement at Mass the other day. That priest was misinformed. Fr. Normandin IS seriously ill with clots in his lungs and certainly prayers for this selfless priest will continue to be appreciated.

I posted the following comment on Facebook re. how unfortunate it is that people don’t verify such urgent news before giving it out…

Heroic Canadian Priest, Fr. Yves Normandin, Seriously Ill

Heroic Canadian Priest, Fr. Yves Normandin, Seriously Ill

Father Yves Normandin, from Quebec [is a] pioneer in keeping the traditional Catholic faith alive in Canada, from the beginning.

He used to fly across Canada every Sunday from Montreal, Winnipeg, Regina, Calgary, and finally Vancouver to offer the traditional Latin Mass. He did this for years.

Many of the Mass centres the SSPX [now] has were started by him.

O Sweet Jesus, Eternal High Priest,
look favorably upon Thy priest Father Yves
whom sickness has cast upon a bed of pain.
Draw near to him, lay Thy hand upon him, and heal him by Thy Almighty power.
Restore him to health and vigor so that praising Thee he may be able to continue to labor in promoting Thy greater honor and glory and the salvation of souls.
Amen. read more

PERFECT CONTRITION By REV. F. QUIRIJNEN, S.J.

The dealings of God with mankind throughout history are a divine romance of condescending love and infinite mercy. This truth is splendidly borne out by the doctrine of Perfect Contrition, if we consider it in its proper setting, namely, by recalling to mind what sin is, what makes its malice, and how the sinner can be reconciled with God read more
