Shears and Tears of a Lamb |
We are delighted to welcome back Catharine Lamb after a family hiatus. Many have missed her insights of one who has recently turned her back forever on the Novus Ordo and embraced the Traditional Mass of All Ages. She laments that so many Catholics today are fed a Catholic-lite menu of TV-Land Catholicism with EWTN which, in fact, is keeping many lukewarm, not allowing Catholics to truly know the fullness of their Faith. Thus, today Catharine begins a series on the differences of the Novus Ordo and the True Holy Mass, focusing first and foremost on the Canon of the Mass - the Saints forever remembered in the Canon of the Holy Mass which, as she explains, is The True Hall of Fame.
Editor Michael Cain shares feedback from readers on their interpretations they perceived in J.R.R. Tolkien's great trilogy "The Lord of the Rings." Some are quite insightful, others quite a reach and a few quite radical. But we asked for your feedback and we got it so to share with you what some of our readers think, Cain has dedicated this week's editorial to readers' responses to last week's editorial "Tolkien the Prophet!" in his commentary today, entitled Return to the Rings
Gabriel Garnica illustrated the inevitable collision ahead between two runaway trains hurtling forward in the darkness of refusing to acknowledge God's will. He pointed out that the more technology grows, the less we remember and practice our spiritual and moral values. Convenience and instant gratification have replaced work ethics and sacrifice. The result: Danger ahead. Erosion and possible explosions threaten us at every unknown twist and turn ahead on the track society is on today. Why would we take such a dangerous journey of no return? Gabriel clears away the dust and grime of the mine shaft of fate in showing us how we will be shafted if we do not fortify the girders of our Faith and trust in God to get us off this path plunging toward perdition as he warned in his column High Tech and Low Spirit!
Where Are We Headed? .
THE FATIMA FILE
We brought you a most revealing article by John Vennari, editor of Catholic Family News that appears in his most recent excellent monthly publication. You won't believe the syncretism exhibited by the Cardinal Patriarch of Lisbon, Portugal Jose de Cruz Policarpo, but then if you've been following the ecumania of turning Fatima into an interfaith shrine, you will believe it. Despite the damage control ZENIT and other neo-Catholic pubs try to spin in being the voice of the deniars and liars in Rome and elsewhere, this follow-up piece by Vennari - who was personally present at this aberration of a conference at Fatima - provides undeniable facts and a follow-up exposé of the hypocrisy and cover-up going on as he explained in More News on the Interfaith Program at Fatima
Qui legit, intelligat
In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Double Major Feast of the Holy Family, he lamented how the family of the Church, which is founded on the ideals of the Holy Family, is further being divided by the latest abomination that has been pronounced by modern Rome, one that contradicts all that eternal Rome has always preached. Father is referring specifically to John Paul II's totally humanistic indicators both on January 1st and 6th which falsely lead people to think that humanity has the answers to peace on this earth and that 'love conquers all.' Each day in his stubborn quest to forge his legacy as the great leader of ecumania, the pope veers further away from Catholic doctrine as Father explained in his sermon
A Disturbing Gospel of Peace and Love.
PRO LIFE PRESCRIPTIONS
Dr. Frank Joseph weighed in Friday with comments about an article that appeared in Thursday's WorldNetDaily which, really is old news about Bishop Raymond Burke telling pro-abort Catholic politicians, most specifically Democratic Congressman David Obey, to cease from receiving communion if he persists in his pro-abort agenda. We've heard this before and always nothing comes of it. Why should we think it will this time? Public excommunication of the worst offenders is necessary. While Obey may not obey, neither have the bishops. Obey is small fish compared the real whales of the pro-abortion, pro-sodomy anti-Catholic agenda - CINOs Ted Kennedy and John Kerry and that ilk.Frank explains in his column Miters Without Muscle .
Gabriel Garnica continued on his treatise pointing out the alarming aspects of The New Order. Today he focuses on time management and time itself. He showed that no matter how much we dialogue or talk about managing our time, no matter where in the world we might live, the only time standard that we can be sure of and not worry about being late for is by keeping Standard Salvation Time! Time is precious and so fleeting and we can't afford to waste it. All we can manage is the time God gives us and the only way is by doing what God asks of us each and every conscious moment as Gabriel explained in his column Efficiency and The New Order .
On the BattleLine
Friday we shared with you an interesting perspective from Atila Sinke Guimarães as he took a look back at all the 'hope and promise' for 'justice and peace' that was supposed to bud from the 'fruitful' efforts of John Paul II's visit to Cuba six years ago. But alas, in an Autumn letter from the Cuban bishops the euphoria is no more. Gloom seems to pervade all of Catholic Cuba. Just like the shifting sands of Cuba's shores, souls are being sucked under, hope waning as Cuban Communist rigidity grows even stronger while the Pope does nothing to follow-up. All show and no finish. Atila also hit on another sore point in Catholic doctrine today: another cardinal pandering to homosexuality by compromising on AIDS cures that only compound the sin explained in his Bird's Eye View of the News with The Cuban Fiasco
Besides the best available list of Latin Masses throughout the country, Father Moderator tells it like it is, never pulling punches in punching holes in all the charade that is the Vatican II church as you'll see in Traditio.com
