Readings & Reflections: Thursday of the Fourth Week of Lent & St. Peter Regalado, March 30,2017

Israel attempts to equate the meaning of life with “a molten calf.” “They forgot the God who had saved them.” Such forgetfulness results in hostility toward God. Jesus accuses, “You do not have the Father’s word remaining in you.” Remember us, Lord; favor us again. We exchange all false glory.

AMDG+

Opening Prayer

Heavenly Father, Inspire us to work for human progress, and the preservation of human dignity. Make us your instrument to spread your kingdom in all we do. Make our hearts thirst for Christ, the fountain of living water. Forgive us our sins and direct our steps into the ways of justice and sincerity. Lord, we realize that that the tiny sacrifices we make this Lent can never serve as a real penance in our lives. Help us make our lives be of authentic discipleship in Christ. Fill us with your love and let your love shine out from within us and guide us in this sacred journey toward the Easter joy you offer all of us. In Jesus’ Mighty Name, we pray. Amen.

Pope Francis’ General Audience: The relationship between faith and hope

Published on Mar 29, 2017

“Faith teaches us to hope against hope by putting our trust in God’s word.”

Today the pope reflected on St. Paul’s Letter to the Romans, in which he emphasized the necessity of putting our hope, and faith, to “accept the promise of new life given to us in the Lord’s resurrection.”

Abp. Sheen: “You have the minds, the eyes, the ears to save the Church”

Catholics around the world are waking up to the crisis in the Church. They are beginning to stand up for their Faith by joining the Resistance movement begun by Church Militant.

By 1972, Abp. Fulton Sheen recognized the crisis of faith stemming from weak leadership and poor formation. He also saw the role of the laity in turning the tide. That year, the holy and learned bishop gave the laity their marching orders:

Who is going to save our Church? Not our bishops, not our priests and religious. It is up to you, the people. You have the minds, the eyes, the ears to save the Church. Your mission is to see that your priests act like priests, your bishops, like bishops, and your religious act like religious.

TRANSCRIPT

The Resistance Movement that Church Militant began a number of months back has really started to catch on, we are very pleased to report. In the past few weeks, we have spoken at various conferences with hundreds of people in attendance at each of them and expressing great enthusiasm for our work at whipping up a movement to resist the evil so manifest in the Church.

At the talks, we go straight at the roots of the crisis that need resisting and support has been wonderful. The crowds are attentive, enthused, anxious to listen and determined to do what they need to do to resist the loss of Catholic identity.

Gender identity politics is erasing and silencing women

Gender identity politics is erasing and silencing women

A conservative, pro-life doctor praises a feminist protest against transgender ideology By Michelle A. Cretella | Mar 29 2017

Editor Ruth Barrett is a courageous woman who has defied political orthodoxy in publishing Female Erasure: What you need to know about gender politics’ war on women, the female sex and human rights. Barrett’s masterpiece is an eclectic, incisive, well-referenced analysis of the transgendering of society and its harmful impact upon women and children.

Not only has Barrett swum headlong into the transgender tsunami, braving an onslaught of harassment, including death threats (as have many of her contributors), but she has also reached across the political abortion divide in the process. Barrett, like most of her contributors, is a feminist fiercely committed to abortion rights. Yet she still approached me, President of the pro-life American College of Pediatricians, to request permission to republish my scientific statement on gender dysphoria in her anthology.

Readings & Reflections: Wednesday of the Fourth Week of Lent & St. Ludovico of Casoria, March 29,2017

Readings & Reflections: Wednesday of the Fourth Week of Lent & St. Ludovico of Casoria, March 29,2017

“The Lord comforts his people and shows mercy to the afflicted.” The Lord assures us, “I will never forget you.” “The Lord lift up all who are falling.” It is for us simply to “call upon him in truth.” For “the Son gives life to whomever he wishes.”

AMDG+

Opening Prayer

Heavenly Father, With your great and unconditional love, You forgive the repentant sinner and reward virtue. Lord, grant me your forgiveness as I honestly confess my guilt and my sins. Amidst my sinfulness and the pain it has brought upon me, always make me remember your tender love and your gentle and limitless forgiveness.  Yes Lord, I come before You filled with pain and guilt but as I look into your eyes and I see the forgiving love I so long for in my life. Lord, help me to forgive the same way You have forgiven me. Teach me to love as you love. Lead me on Lord and hold my hand as I travel back to my true home with You. I pray all these in the Mighty Name of Jesus. Amen.

Pope’s Morning Homily: ‘To Have Faith Is to Live Our Lives With Joy’

At Casa Santa Marta, Francis Says ‘Even today the Lord looks to each of us sinners – we are all sinners – and says ‘Rise’”

L’OSSERVATORE ROMANO

[From Vatican Radio]Pope Francis on Tuesday encouraged Christians to get on with things, living life with joy. Speaking during the homily during Mass at the Casa Santa Marta, he urged them to avoid complaining and not to let themselves be paralyzed by the ugly sin of sloth.

The Gospel story at the heart of Pope Francis’ reflection tells of a man who had been ill for thirty-eight years. He was lying at the side of a pool called Bethesda with a large number of ill, blind, lame and crippled who believed that when an angel came down and stirred up the waters the first to bathe in the pool would be healed. When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had been ill for a long time, he said to him: “Do you want to be well?”
