God cannot be put up for sale!

One can sell his soul by leaving the Church through the far-right door as well as the far-left door!

    In this weekend's editorial, we venture into an area we have hitherto not journeyed, speaking out about a purported messenger. The events and disobedience of the messenger in question and the danger he poses in duping so many prompts us out of conscience as loyal Catholics and responsible journalists to expose the error of his ways, for rather than following Jesus and His Vicar on earth, he has chosen the same path as men like Martin Luther, Henry VIII and those who stubbornly adhere to the Society of St. Pius X. Souls are at stake. That makes the consequences much higher. For the editorial, Do not be deceived by the heathen and the publican!, click on CATHOLIC PewPOINT

Do not be deceived by the heathen and the publican!

SIMPLY SHEEN:

Humility is knowing our true selves

    They say a picture is worth 1000 words, but the words of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen have been known to launch a thousand images in one's mind, one of the ways this late luminarydid so much to evangelize the faith. Because of the urgency of the times and because few there are today who possess the wisdom, simplicity and insight than the late Archbishop who touched millions, we are bringing you daily gems from his writings. The good bishop makes it so simple that we have dubbed this daily series: "SIMPLY SHEEN".

"To explore the Truth in all its complexity there must come moments when we confess ignorance, when we frankly admit that we were mistaken or bigoted, or prejudiced. These admissions are painful, but they actually enrich character just as much as all approximations to falsehood forfeit it."


The weekend movie reviews return by popular demand

Top Ten Films for the third week of September

    Frankly, we were surprized by the response we received from readers after we had ended the summer run of weekend movie reviews. Many requested we continue them year-round so they can review movies before plunking down their hard-earned dollars and be forewarned of films that are offensive and harmful to their souls. For those reasons, we have decided to heed their wishes and will therefore reinsert this feature each Friday. To be honest there are few films out there worth seeing right now and some that are downright reeking with Catholic-bashing scenes such as the lurid "Stigmata" which is just another effort to demean the Church with its For the Top Ten reviews for the third week of September prepared by the NCCB, click on MOVIES AND MORALS
