Bishop Emmanuel Adetoyese Badejo of Oyo, Nigeria, believes “that Muslims have an Islamisation agenda, and they have a right to have it”, writes the Daily Post (October 15). He lambasted Christians crying foul, noting that they had the opportunity to christianize Nigeria but failed to do so. Badejo said Christians in high offices only know how to engage in bickering and fight for positions, leaving out policies that would favor them. read more

Novena to Christ the King Oct. 20-28


Feast Day Oct.29.
.
Oh JESUS, Thou didst declare that Thy Kingdom is upon the earth,
but not of the earth; it is a spiritual, supernatural Kingdom, the Kingdom of truth.

It fights with the power of conviction, and conquers by this means the hearts that by right belong to it.

Thou Thyself art witness to this truth, and Thou Thyself art the Truth.
Oh Jesus, I believe that Thou art truly a King
because Thou hast come into the world to institute among people the rule of God;
every person who is of the truth, who believes in God and recognizes His authority in human affairs,
owes Thee a loyal and undivided allegiance and “hears Thy voice.” read more

In an effort to “promote greater wholeness for transgender individuals,” a Catholic all-girls school in London, England, has ordered students to use the “preferred pronoun” of pupils who do not identify as female.

Marian Doyle, headteacher at Sacred Heart High School, recently informed parents that “as a Catholic school,” students should begin “using the young person’s preferred pronoun and addressing them as them with their preferred name, recognizing their intent to live as the person they believe God created them to be, and refraining from any judgement.” read more

Gonzaga University’s website is announcing that it is “proud to present” a lecture by Angela Davis later this month.

Davis is a radical activist with past associations to the Black Panther Party and the Communist Party USA, and she has supported abortion rights and same-sex marriage.

Davis was on the FBI’s Most Wanted List after she went on the run following the kidnapping and murder of a judge in California. The judge was killed with a gun allegedly purchased by Davis. After her capture, leftists rallied to her cause and labeled her a political prisoner. She was acquitted of murder, kidnapping and conspiracy. After her release from prison, Davis traveled to the Soviet Union and received the Lenin Peace Prize in 1979. read more

Bishops, theologians counter Filial Correction with statement of ‘full support’ for Pope Francis

Matthew Cullinan Hoffman

October 18, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – A group of mostly German-speaking Catholic clerics and scholars, including several dissenting bishops, have signed a vague statement expressing support for Pope Francis and his “pastoral initiatives” in the face of a “vehement attack” against them.

“Pro Pope Francis,” which was published on a special website October 17, appears designed to counteract the “Filial Correction” of Pope Francis, which was published in late September and currently includes the signatures of 245 Catholic clergy and scholars. read more

Cardinal Müller: Orthodox Catholics should not be punished over Amoris Laetitia

October 18, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — The Vatican’s former doctrine chief has criticized reprisals toward Catholics who make an effort to read Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia in light of the Catholic faith.

Cardinal Gerhard Müller said it’s only in cases when one repudiates Catholic teaching that a person can be quashed.

“Nobody who interprets Amoris Laetitia in the context of the orthodox tradition should be disciplined,” Cardinal Müller said. “Only if one denies the principles of the Catholic faith can he be censored.” read more

Pro-Abortion Students at “Catholic” St. Louis University Vandalize Display of Crosses to Remember Aborted Babies

Pro-Abortion Students at “Catholic” St. Louis University Vandalize Display of Crosses to Remember Aborted Babies

STUDENTS FOR LIFE   OCT 18, 2017

Late Monday night, vandals at St. Louis University, a Catholic university in St. Louis, destroyed a Cemetery of Innocents display. The display was commemorating lives lost to abortion and other types of violence.

“Once again, pro-life free speech has been squelched on an university campus. It was truly an atrocious act to steal crosses from this inclusive event that represent lives lost to abortion, homicide, and those who suffer in poverty in our nation. Students for Life strongly condemns the anti-free speech disease that is plaguing our college campuses. The Students for Life group at St. Louis University was bringing a message of truth, love, and compassion to their campus. The intolerant people who ruined a display about the value of life should feel ashamed. We hope the university will quickly find the perpetrators and replace our students’ crosses,” said Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life of America. read more

Could Capuchin Journal Story Be Key to Unlocking Papal Designs on Female Ordination?

Could Capuchin Journal Story Be Key to Unlocking Papal Designs on Female Ordination?

Maike Hickson October 18, 2017

We have become aware of a story — an anecdote published three years ago in a Swiss Capuchin journal and never denied by the Vatican —  relating a conversation between the pope and an unnamed archbishop in which the pope is alleged to have said that he has “the keys” to the female priesthood.

Before examining that anecdote, some history of papal overtures on this topic is in order. As our readers might already know, OnePeterFive has been attentive to the possibility that Pope Francis has designs to allow women access to Holy Orders — even, somehow, to become (purportedly) ordained priests. One of the earliest indications of his interest in this matter came in 2015, when the pope recommended to the German bishops during their Ad Limina visit in Rome that they read the books of Fritz Lobinger, himself an open promoter not only of married priests, but also of female priests. read more

Did this Vatican Cardinal flip-flop on Communion for remarried because of Pope Francis?

ANALYSIS

CORNWALL, Ontario, October 18, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Pope Francis’ controversial teachings on marriage and family have apparently caused a high-ranking Vatican cardinal to reverse his formerly held position that civilly-divorced-and-remarried Catholics cannot receive Holy Communion.

Marc Cardinal Ouellet, prefect of the Vatican’s Congregation for Bishops, which oversees the appointment of bishops worldwide, said in a talk last month that the Pope’s 2016 exhortation Amoris Laetitia “may open a door” for civilly-divorced-and-remarried Catholics to receive Holy Communion. He said that some saw in the Pope’s teaching “the good news of an openness.” read more
