Readings & Reflections: Friday of the Second Week of Easter & St. Peter Chanel, April 28,2017

“A large crowd followed” Jesus because “they saw the signs he was performing.” However, when the Sanhedrin members see similar signs in the Apostles who speak “in the name of Jesus,” it makes them want to “destroy” the Apostles. Thank God for the hunger in our life that moves us to proclaim of “Christ, Jesus:” “This is truly the Prophet.”

AMDG+

Opening Prayer

“Lord, you satisfy the deepest longings of our hearts and you feed us with the finest of wheat (Ps 81:16). Fill us with gratitude and give us a generous heart that we may freely share with others what you have given to us.” In Jesus’ Mighty Name, we pray. Amen.

BEN SHAPIRO: DEMOCRATS USE ABORTION AS BIRTH CONTROL

BEN SHAPIRO: DEMOCRATS USE ABORTION AS BIRTH CONTROL


by Rodney Pelletier  •  ChurchMilitant.com  •  April 27, 2017

A telling exchange showing the logical incoherence of the “pro-choice” position

The “pro-choice” position is logically incoherent. On the one hand, “pro-choicers” insist on making abortion “safe, legal and rare,” while on the other, they fail to acknowledge the humanity of the unborn. If the unborn aren’t fully human, then why does it matter that abortion be “rare”? Why not abort away, if the act itself doesn’t actually kill a human being worthy of legal protection?

THE VORTEX: HERETICAL LOS ANGELES PRIEST – And no one cares

THE VORTEX: HERETICAL LOS ANGELES PRIEST – And no one cares

April 27, 2017

TRANSCRIPT

This Vortex comes to you from the archdiocese of Los Angeles, where unsurprisingly there is a heretical priest on the loose. I know it’s shocking, but it’s the truth. And as an aside, consider your reaction to hearing that piece of news. A priest, an alter Christus, preaching against Church teaching, actively opposing divine revelation through the Magisterium of the Church, and we sort of have almost no response. That’s how bad it’s gotten.

This particular priest is in the limelight because the University of Notre Dame, all the way back in South Bend, Indiana, has decided to give this priest its highest honor at next month’s commencement ceremonies. Father Gregory Boyle, SJ from here in Los Angeles will be awarded the University’s Laetare Medal.

During Holy Week, two U.S. bishops called on Catholics in their respective dioceses to grow closer to Christ through greater reverence for the Eucharist.

Bishop Robert Morlino, at the chrism Mass for the Diocese of Madison, Wisconsin, asked that all Catholics be encouraged by their priests to receive the Eucharist kneeling and on the tongue. In the Diocese of Lincoln, Nebraska, Bishop James Conley issued a pastoral letter on Holy Thursday encouraging his flock to make Eucharistic adoration an integral part of their lives.

April 25, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The Church would ignore the “real crisis” she faces today if she focuses on social justice issues rather than her basic mission to evangelize, Cardinal Robert Sarah warns in a newly-published interview.

“The Church is gravely mistaken as to the nature of the real crisis if she thinks that her essential mission is to offer solutions to all the political problems relating to justice, peace, poverty, the reception of migrants, etc. while neglecting evangelisation,” the cardinal told Aid to the Church in Need on April 18.

Readings & Reflections: Thursday of the Second Week of Easter & St. Louis Mary Grignion de Montfort, April 27,2017

“Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever disobeys the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God remains upon him”(Jn 3:36). “Belief is certainty that God has shown himself and has opened up for us the view of truth itself” (Pope Benedict XVI). God has shown himself in the different humanity of Peter and the Apostles who declare, “We must obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29). Their witness moves us to want to obey the God who is “trustworthy.” For what is better than their certainty and conviction?
