Pope Benedict XVI: Evangelist to the World

Pope Benedict XVI: Evangelist to the World: Through his lifetime of bridge building, Benedict XVI proposes to be the Virgil to the Dantes of our generation, calling for both a New Evangelization and a new metanoia — a sacramental return to Christ and His Church. The Father of the West who had guided the poet has become the Holy Father who did the unthinkable, and now he wishes simply to be called Father Benedict even amidst the celebrations of his service.

Happy 90th birthday to Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI.

I wonder who has been in charge three of those four years? 



Free SUNY tuition?


Take Cuomo's money.
Graduate.
Leave New York State. (You have to stay a little while after graduating to get your freebie.  But you don't have to stay forever.  Just like prison.)

Is the Catholic Church in De Facto Schism? - Crisis Magazine

Is the Catholic Church in De Facto Schism? - Crisis Magazine: Why is there confusion in the Catholic Church over Amoris Laetitia, and what consequences does it have for Church unity? I argue here that the confusion is ultimately over two de fide dogmas of Christian faith and that one consequence of the confusion is de facto schism within the Catholic Church. When de fide (“of the faith”) is used in Catholic …

Did Obama Regime-Change the Vatican?

Did Obama Regime-Change the Vatican?

I love a good conspiracy theory.












Another mass translation?

V. Positive thoughts be with you.
R. Likewise with you.
V. Lift up your hands.
R. We lift them up to the sky.
V. Let us give thanks to creation.
R. It is good and green.
It is truly good and green, our duty and our salvation,
always and everywhere to care for the environment,
and to welcome the immigrant,
in imitation of Jesus the itinerant preacher,
who made all people happy, except the powerful,
was born of the Virgin Mary who felt betrayed by God,
and condemned nothing,
while judging no one.
