New Poll

Are you happy with the new choices of Cardinals? I most certainly am, but what is your opinion?

Oh! This isn't a broadway tune?

A setting for the new mass...

I advise you, do not consume this racket on a full stomach.

Think and Know.

There are those who like to attack the church, because they think that we worship statues, they think we worship bread, they think we are unfair, they think we are sexist and "intolerant". There is a difference between what one "thinks" and what one "knows". I don't mean "think" as in "he thought about it", I mean think as in "I think that answer may be...". For example, I know that our holy church is the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church. Every true Catholic knows that. I know that when the holy Priest consecrates the Holy Eucharist, it becomes the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I know that Our Lady is ever-virgin and ever-sinless, and that she is the Immaculate Conception. How do I know this? Because the Church has taught it for 2,000 years, and what the church teaches is the truth, and the truth is the truth, the truth can not be changed. Sure, some other ecclesial communities and churches share similar beliefs with us, especially valid Churches with apostolic succession like our Eastern Orthodox brethren, BUT, the fullness of the truth can ONLY be found in the Catholic Church.

Addressing a Bishop

A reference

  • In Canada, the UK, and Ireland, Bishops are address as "You Grace" or "His Grace", "My Lord", "His Lordship", "Your Lordship", and "My Lord Bishop"
  • In the US, Bishops are addressed as "Your Excellency", "His Excellency", and "The Most Reverend".
  • In the Eastern church, "His Beatitude", "Your Beatitude", and such are used.
 I am used to Bishops being addressed as "Your Grace", "His Grace", "My Lord", "Your Lordship", "My Lord Bishop" and such, which is very much quite fitting. So, knowing this, and knowing that American bishops are addressed as to "Your Eminence", I hope that anybody who wants to address a Bishop properly, (and since many people have asked me), I hope this reference will help!
God Bless!

The rumours are TRUE!

And His Grace Archbishop Raymond Burke is one of them!

Ad Jesum, Per Mariam.

Remember, to take the shortest path to Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ: through his Blessed Virgin Mother, Our Lady.

O most Holy St. Joseph, most chaste spouse of the Virgin Mary, most loving foster-Father of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, patron of His Universal Church, Ora Pro Nobis!

Absolute rubbish.....seedspit.

I have NO IDEA how I got subscribed to the "catholics For Equality" newsletter. This time they are saying "You can be "Catholic" and support gay marriage"....oh goodness me.
Look at this bloody drivel,claptrap absolute nonsense.  Daniel C. Maguire (a dissident theologian) is giving a talk on the matter....

Here is what the flier says.

Daniel Maguire is renowned for his informed critique of the sexual theology presented by the clerical leadership of the Roman Catholic Church – a theology sadly divorced from human experience and the insights of the sciences. This is especially evident in the clerical leadership’s stance on homosexuality and gay marriage. Join us on October 21 as Daniel highlights the support for gay marriage that can be found in all the world religions, including Roman Catholicism {so, he is a critic of the truth. He is a critic of God, and God's Holy Church}

Daniel C. Maguire, has a doctorate in Sacred Theology from the Pontifical Gregorian University(how he managed to get that, I haven't the slightest clue) in Rome, one of the world’s major Catholic universities. The author of eleven books and the editor of three anthologies, Maguire specializes in religious ethics focusing upon issues of social justice and medical and ecological ethics. He is also the author of some 200 articles in professional journals and magazines, including Theological Studies, Cross Currents, Atlantic, The New York Times, Crisis: Journal of the NAACP, and Ms. Magazine. In 1982 he was listed by Ms. Magazine as one of the “40 male heroes of the past decade, men who took chances and made a difference.” His published books include: Moral Absolutes and the Magisterium (1970), The Moral Choice (1975), The Moral Revolution (1986), On Moral Grounds: The Art/Science of Ethics (1991), The Moral Core of Judaism and Christianity (1993), Sacred Energies (2000), What Men Owe Women (2000), Sacred Choices (2001), Sacred Rights (2003), and Whose Church? A Concise Guide to Progressive Catholicism (2008).

La Sagrada Familia

I did a post on the Sagrada Familia before. The Sagrada Familia is one of the most BEAUTIFUL cathedrals in Europe! The only thing I don't like about it is some of the windows (we'll blame it on the 60's, because Gaudi was a wonderful architect).....well, anyhow, the Sagrada Familia will be consecrated and raised to a Basilica on November the 7th during Pope Benedicts trip to Spain!
This from Zenit.....
BARCELONA, Spain, FEB. 18, 2010 ( The archbishop of Barcelona is affirming that Benedict XVI expressed interest in an invitation to consecrate the Sagrada Familia Church in that city, though he has not yet confirmed.

The church, designed by Antoni Gaudí, has been under construction since 1882 and is not expected to be completed until 2026.

However, this September, a portion of the building's completed interior is set to be opened for worship and tours.

Barcelona's archbishop, Cardinal Lluís Martínez Sistach, invited the Pope to consecrate the church before it is opened for use.

He reported this Wednesday in a press conference at his episcopal palace, which was held for the beatification of Venerable José Tous y Soler, a Capuchin priest and founder who died in 1871 in Barcelona.

The cardinal stated that "the Holy Father was interested in the invitation because of what the Sagrada Familia is and signifies as a church of the universal genius of architect Antoni Gaudí, whose cause of canonization is under way."
He added that this church, named after the Holy Family, also has special significance "given the extreme importance the family has for the Holy Father, since the good of persons, of society and of the Church are directly related to the protection, defense and promotion of the family."
The Sagrada Familia is a religious monument which has been declared patrimony of humanity. It draws some 3 million visitors every year.
The archbishop of Barcelona clarified that "there is still no confirmation of this trip of the Pope to Barcelona to dedicate or consecrate the Sagrada Familia, as it depends on the Holy Father's calendar of trips."
The cardinal noted that the Pontiff "gives much importance to art, to beauty as a way to God."
He recalled, for example, Benedict XVI's Nov. 21 meeting with artists in the Sistine Chapel, and his address to them that was "very rich in content and very affectionate."

Cardinal Martínez Sistach noted that the Pope affirmed on that occasion that "artists speak to humanity's heart." He asked them to be, through their art, "witnesses and heralds of hope for humanity."

Some wise words from the saints!

Christ said, "I am the Truth"; he did not say "I am the custom."  St. Toribio

Those who commit these types of scandals are guility of the spiritual equivalent of murder, but I', here among you to prevent something far worst for you. While those who give scandal are guilty of the spiritual equivalent of murder, those who take scandal- who allow scandals to destroy faith- are guilty of spiritual suicide. St. Francis de Sales

It is better to say one Our Father fervently and devoutly than a thousand with no devotion and full of distraction.  St. Edmund

We must pray without tiring, for the salvation of mankind does not depend on material success; nor on sciences that cloud the intellect. Neither does it depend on arms and human industries, but on Jesus alone.  St. Frances Xavier Cabrini

Mary was raised to the dignity of Mother of God rather for sinners than for the just, since Jesus Christ declares that he came to call not the just, but sinners.  St. Anselm

O Mary, we poor sinners know no other refuge but you, you are our only patroness, and we all look to you! St. Thomas of Villanova

Whoever loves Mary will persevere-St. John Berchmans

I found these quotes on "Seeking Jesus" ( and on "Defend the Faith" ( I recommend you their sites!
