Brit Prime Minister Theresa May’s deal with the Northern Ireland Pro-Prot and Pro-Life Democratic Unionist Party is under pressure as the Sinn Féin Party changes its stance on abortion

[Hat-tip to Church Militant: Northern Ireland pro-IRA (Irish Republican Army) party endorses abortion; Sinn Fein is becoming the party of violence and death in more than one way]

At its Ard Fheis (party conference) on 16 June, Sinn Féin delegates voted to allow abortion in Northern Ireland for a “limited gestational period”. This puts the party in line with proposed abortion law in the Republic of Ireland, but opposed to its potential power-sharing partners in the pro-life DUP. read more

Irish “Catholic” Politician Who Voted for Abortion: No I Won’t Go to Confession

Irish “Catholic” Politician Who Voted for Abortion: No I Won’t Go to Confession

MICAIAH BILGER   JUN 18, 2018 A prominent Irish politician who claims to be Catholic said she will not go to confession after voting to repeal unborn babies’ constitutional rights.

Mary McAleese, a former president in Ireland, responded to Catholic Bishop Kevin Doran of Elphin who urged Catholics to attend confession if they voted to repeal the country’s pro-life Eighth Amendment.

The Irish Independent reports McAleese flouted the bishop’s urging and openly touted her vote to allow the legalized killing of unborn babies in Ireland. She made the statements at a weekend conference organized by the “Catholic” lay group We Are Church Ireland in Dublin.

“I had no hesitation at the end of the day when it came to the vote – I absolutely voted Yes,” McAleese told reporters at the event. read more

Gloria.TV News – 6/17/18

Dr. Peter Jones, an English-born Presbyterian pastor in the U.S., has criticized Pope Francis’ assurance to a homosexual that – quote – “God made you that way”. For Jones such remarks cannot be explained as simple pastoral concern overriding petty doctrinal judgment. Quote, “This statement compromises the history of Catholic teaching.”

I [BISHOP RENE HENRY GRACIDA] BELIEVE …

[Credo quia absurdum! – Tertullian; actually “Prorsus credibile est, quia ineptum est (It is by all means to be believed, because it is absurd)” from his De Carne Christi (ca. 203-206) – AQ Tom]

AQ Tom: “By way of introduction”: On Mr Salvini And “Benedict Pope”

il-mio-papa

People, just in case anyone gets too excited… The one with Salvini choosing “Benedict” as Pope” is a word play. “Benedetto” in Italian means “blessed”. “My Pope Is Blessed”, says the T-Shirt. Francis’ image is dismayed, because this also means “my Pope is Benedict”. Cleverly, the letters are all capitalised, as the normal writing would give up the game. We must understand Italian humour here. Salvini is not saying that Francis is not Pope. He is saying that Francis is not doing his job. He is, by the way, the Interior Minister. He would never say who is the head of another State. This is a very nice, ironic Italian word play. It shows a polite criticism to a bad Pope. read more

Cardinal condemns God for separating families

Cardinal condemns God for separating families

Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, has slammed God for building a wall round Heaven and separating families.Said His Eminence, “It is shocking to think that there is no free access to Heaven, and that people who illegally try to enter – perhaps when St Peter’s attention is distracted by a discussion of fishing techniques – are rounded up and interned in Hell. This means that some people are entering Heaven to discover that their parents have been sent elsewhere.”

Donald Trump

An artist’s vision of God.

A spokesman for God (St Matthew of Catholic Voices) remarked that Divine Immigration Policy clearly stated “And every one that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall possess life everlasting. So there!”

Meanwhile, the USCCB stressed that they were speaking out in their capacity as a pro-life organization: they were concerned about immigration, but had very little objection to children being destroyed in the womb, and they would certainly not deny communion to abortionists, whether practising or simply preaching the doctrine of death. In this they were backed up by organizations such as “Catholics for Choice”, “Catholics for Infanticide”, “Catholics for Herod” and “Catholics for BLOOD SLAUGHTER MURDER DEATH PSYCHO AAAAGGGGHHH”. read more

June 15, 2018 (American Life League via LifeSiteNews) – Definition of CINO: Catholic in Name Only.

Xavier Becerra, current politically appointed California attorney general, has won his primary bid to seek election by the people of that state.

When then state attorney general, pro-abortion Kamela Harris, vacated her post to run for the US Senate and won, Becerra got the nod from Governor Jerry Brown for the appointment. However, unlike Harris and Brown, Becerra is Catholic-in-name-only (CINO) and totally pro-abortion. read more

Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk: Russian invasion of Ukraine is a ‘silent war’

“We do not just need to pray for reconciliation. We need to do effective acts of reconciliation. This is crucial,” Shevchuk said, adding that “reconciliation does not mean to be reconciled with the aggressor, reconciliation does not mean to be reconciled with lying or fake news.”

At US Catholic bishops conference, a deeper embrace of FrankenPope — and relevancy

[The FrankenPope effect takes effect on AmChurch!]

17 June 2018 – JACK JENKINS – Religion News Service

The spring meeting of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops is historically the less eventful of the American church leadership’s two annual gatherings. It tends to be sparsely attended, focused on ecclesiastic procedures and mostly, well, boring.

But this year’s meeting, at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa here, saw the bishops not only engaged in lengthy debates over the nature of their political voice but making headlines with their stern critique of the Trump administration’s immigration policies. read more

People today speak of various kinds of family but “the family as man and woman is the only one”, Pope Francis said speaking to the Forum delle Famiglie (June 16).

According to Ansa, Francis further evoked Nazi eugenics programmes to condemn the abortion of handicapped babies,

2018 US Bishops’ Spring Conference – One Only Wishes One Had a Tomato

Conquered by Love – 6/16/18

This year’s Bishops’ Spring prom was a First Place Blue Ribbon poop show of all episcopal poop shows.

They planned

1. another publicity stunt at the Mexican border

2. production of political propaganda to keep prolife/pro-God/pro-family/pro-moral theology politicians out of office – ‘apply the teachings of Pope Francis to our day’

3. conversations with youth about their favorite Netflix show

Can never get enough of Fr. Wilson’s quote from an article titled The Price of my Soul’s Salvation:Watching the bishops’ conference in action is like viewing the film of a train wreck over and over again. With bright-colored clowns hanging out the train windows, waving and blowing kisses. One only wishes one had a tomato. read more

Our Lady of Perpetual Help novena June 18-26

SAY EACH OF THE THREE PRAYERS LISTED BELOW FOLLOWED BY THREE AVES EACH DAY FOR 9 NINE DAYS.

NOVENA PRAYER

Behold at thy feet, O Mother of Perpetual Help, a wretched sinner who has recourse to thee and confides in thee. O Mother of mercy, have pity on me. I hear thee called by all the refuge and the hope of sinners: be then, my refuge and my hope. Assist me, for the love of Jesus Christ; stretch forth thy hand to a miserable fallen creature who recommends himself to thee, and who devotes himself to thy service for ever. I bless and thank Almighty God, who in His mercy has given me this confidence in thee, which I hold to be a pledge of my eternal salvation. It is true that in the past I have miserably fallen into sin, because I had not recourse to thee. I know that, with thy help, I shall conquer. I know, too, that thou wilt assist me, if I recommend myself to thee; but I fear that, in time of danger, I may neglect to call on thee, and thus lose my soul. This grace, then, I ask of thee, and this I beg, with all the fervor of my soul, that in all the attacks of hell I may ever have recourse to thee. O Mary, help me. O Mother of Perpetual Help, never suffer me to lose my God.—3 Hail Marys. read more

Monsignor Alois Schwarz, the new bishop of St Pölten, Austria, has alleged “affairs” and an “abnormal dependence” on two women, reports the Austrian weekly News (June 15) [and OnePeterFive: Bishop Has Female Companions While Church’s Leadership is Silent]. Schwarz has denied the story.

The diocese of Fribourg/Lausanne/Geneva, Switzerland, is in troubles after Pope Francis made the short-term decision to visit the World Council of Churches in Geneva on June 21.

The official webpage cath.ch writes that “the case is emblematic of the Vatican’s habits in organizing such a trip.”

Only in February, Bishop Charles Morerod of Fribourg was informed about the upcoming visit and of Francis’ wish to celebrated a public Mass whose entire organization and funding would be on the diocese.
