Note: While everyone is welcome to attend, not all are invited to Communion. Only persons who are not in a state of mortal sin may receive Communion. That means people who are using contraception cannot receive. Period. The bishop, of course, did not make this rather elementary distinction…which I am not prepared to concede was an honest “mistake”.
Another Catholic scandal…and another example of the Spirit of V2′s Episcopacy just representing another massive FAIL.
…In the wake of the pope’s recent World Day of Peace address and Christmas address affirming that abortion and homosexual ‘marriage’ are incompatible with true peace, Mexico and Spain’s top bishops are seeking to renew the fight for the values of life and family in their countries.
Only days after Pope Benedict XVI released the text of the address, Mexico City’s Cardinal Archbishop Norberto Rivera Carrera held a press conference assuring reporters that the Catholic Church would continue the fight for the values of life and family—values that have been under attack by recent Supreme Court decisions permitting abortion and homosexual “marriage.”
“The Church will continue to proclaim and to follow this doctrine, this truth, this road of family as the unit of the society, of human life as a fundamental right, to those who wish to follow them, and others will follow other roads which we judge to be a way of death,” stated Rivera…. (Source)
It’s not so much what the Cardinal says the Church will continue to proclaim that has got me all excited.
It’s the nasty “judgement” that he makes about the “other roads”.
I’m just dizzy with euphoria over such a proclamation. It means that the Church Militant is back in the game and unconcerned with offending the secular political establishment, and most especially, the Episcopate is bringing the words and the strut to go along with it.
L’école Notre-Dame du Mont Carmel is for Catholic francophone elementary school children. Check it out here.
It’s especially handy for all you Quebec and Francophone parents on the run from the Quebec government whose appointed propaganda-thugs want to interrogate your children and abduct them away from you….and no, it’s no joke.
Socon or Bust is very proud to have played (or will have played) a small part in the formation and/or development of each of these fine Catholic educational institutions.
And then there were three.
Do I see four in the future? C’mon, everyone, one school at a time. Let’s build up Catholic education again…and never, ever go back to State funding.
Been there. Done that. Got a kick in the teeth for it. Won’t go back. Ever.
Experienced a minor setback today in advancing the Conference along. Scheduling mix up. It seems that I’m encountering small obstacles to moving this thing ahead…which is usually a good sign. Then again, I think the delay might actually be Providential. We shall see.
I’m getting very excited about this Conference. It has the potential to really galvanize us for the New Evangelization. You gots-to-know where you’ve come from and where you’re going, after all.
I hope you will all come out…as we seek to put some boundaries and definitions on what Vatican II was all about.
“…Self-consciously “relevant” Catholicism is increasingly seen by the young as irrelevant. Youth masses that try to imitate the trends of the world, often lamely, generate only sporadic attendance. Substanceless liturgies leave them bored, and they apparently deduce from the relativistic theology on display at them that the logical terminus of liberal Catholicism is to lapse…” (Source)
Change is coming. The kids don’t want entertainment or the clowns or the countless other abuses and banality of what constitutes Mass these days.
What a complete smackdown of the legacy of the Spirit of Vatican II. History will not be a kind judge to the architects of that revolution.
Progressives will get a much more harsher sentence than even the Arians received. And it will stick too…in this life and in the next.
William Kokesch, a Montreal permanent deacon who served nearly 10 years as a communications director for Canada’s Catholic bishops, faces child pornography charges….(Source)
So…uh…are you all so gullible and “shocked” to believe that Lahey and Kokesch are the only ones in the Canadian hierarchy and professional class that are into child porn? Let’s get real, OK?
When sex becomes entertainment, sexual child abuse is not too far away.
I place the blame of this scandal squarely on the backs of the Canadian bishops and that God-damned Winnipeg Statement which they have refused to recant.
Ask yourself this, folks: if you were a Canadian bishop, why would you not speak out and condemn such a Statement? Some bizarre “loyalty” to previous bishops? That it’s old news and we shouldn’t stir the pot? Or is it something more personal?
