Readings & Reflections: Saturday of the Seventh Week in Ordinary Time & St. Philip Neri, May 26,2018

Philip has been called the “Second Apostle of Rome,” after the great Saint Paul. Born in Florence, he lived for a time in his youth near Monte Cassino and drank deeply of the Benedictine life of prayer. He was ordained a priest at the age of thirty-five. By degrees, he took Rome by storm. He healed thousands in the confessional. He comforted and directed countless others. He gathered his followers for the Oratory – meetings that combined prayer and music, ending with almsgiving or pilgrimage to Rome’s basilicas. He received many mystical graces, the most telling of which was a mystical “enlargement” of his heart, which he described as being ignited with God’s own Spirit. He founded a Congregation of priests to support the work of the Oratory. Philip died in 1595 A.D. and was immediately proclaimed a saint by the Romans. read more

Pope’s Morning Homily: Marriage ‘Silently Preaches’ That ‘Love Is Possible’

During Morning Mass, Francis Praises Couples Who Stay Together, Laments Christian Marriage Is Not ‘News’

MAY 25, 2018 16:55 BY 

Marriage ‘silently preaches’ that ‘love is possible.’

According to Vatican News, Pope Francis stressed this during his daily morning Mass at Casa Santa Marta as he offered Mass in the presence of seven couples celebrating their 50th and 25th wedding anniversaries, and reflected on today’s Gospel reading according to Mark (Mk 10: 1-12), where Jesus affirms the beauty of marriage. read more

IRISH ABORTION CLASH: Faithful Catholics pitted against Establishment

Irish Abortion Clash by Stephen Wynne  •  ChurchMilitant.com  •  May 24, 2018

Irish pro-lifers are engaged in a David and Goliath struggle to protect the unborn.

As Ireland prepares for the May 25 national abortion referendum, polls show the gap is narrowing between abortion supporters and defenders of children in the womb.

The pro-abortion camp has been boosted by Ireland’s establishment media.

Irish author and columnist John Waters comments on the media bias: “Virtually to a man and to a woman, journalists are on one side of these arguments.”

But faithful Catholics are striking back with the spiritual weapon of the Rosary. read more

KIDS NEED DADS: The man-crisis affects everyone

The man-crisis affects everyone

One of the most underreported tragedies in our time is the epidemic of fatherlessness. And not only is an absent father destructive to children’s lives, it’s destructive to all of society. In fact, it’s probably the most potent force in the ongoing demolition of Western civilization.

While psychologists have been adamant about the effects of absent fathers on children, entertainment and the Establishment media has made it look like masculinity is the problem while relentlessly attacking it. read more

CARDINAL FRANCIS ARINZE: STOP INTERCOMMUNION – Become Catholic to receive Holy Communion

CARDINAL FRANCIS ARINZE: STOP INTERCOMMUNION – Become Catholic to receive Holy Communion

Cdl. Arinze: Stop Intercommunion by Alexander Slavsky  •  ChurchMilitant.com  •  May 25, 2018 BUCKFASTLEIGH, England (ChurchMilitant.com) – The former liturgy chief is saying no to intercommunion, reaffirming the Eucharist is only for Catholics in a state of grace.

In a Catholic News Service article Wednesday, Nigerian Cdl. Francis Arinze emphasized that extending Holy Communion to divorced and civilly remarried Catholics and non-Catholic spouses of Catholics poses a “serious” challenge to Church teaching.

His Eminence blasted the doctrinal ambiguities in Amoris Laetitia, the pope’s 2016 exhortation on marriage and the family, which have led dioceses around the world to open Communion for the divorced and civilly remarried.

“If a person is divorced and remarried (without the first marriage being annulled) then there is a problem,” Arinze said, declaring it is Christ who taught this situation constitutes adultery.

He continued: read more

Papal Commission Chair: ‘No Need to Update’ Humanae Vitae by Stephen Wynne  •  ChurchMilitant.com  •  May 25, 2018

Fr. Gilfredo Marengo says ‘intelligent pastoral plan’ needed instead

VATICAN CITY (ChurchMilitant.com) – The chair of a papal commission studying Humanae Vitae assures “there is no need to update it.”

On Wednesday, Fr. Gilfredo Marengo of the Pontifical Theological Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family in Rome, told Catholic News Agency, “Humanae Vitae is an authoritative document of the Catholic Church, and it is part of the tradition. We are called to welcome it as it is and to apply it with an intelligent pastoral plan.”

In his study of Humanae Vitae, Marengo noted that “one of the biggest knots” in drafting the encyclical was the tension “between doctrine and pastoral issues.” read more

The One True Faith Revisited: Judgmentalism by Church Militant  •  ChurchMilitant.com  •  May 25, 2018

Admonishing the sinner is still a spiritual work of mercy

Many today misquote chapter seven of Matthew’s gospel as “Thou shalt not judge” and then make this erroneous paraphrase out to be some kind of eleventh commandment. The funny thing is, Our Lord actually does say in this passage that it’s ok to judge the sinful actions of another person but just not in a biased way.

Our Lord calls out those who judge others while turning a blind eye to their own moral shortcomings. Personal sins tend to color a person’s perceptions of the moral actions of others. Our Lord directs that whoever is doing the correcting first get his own moral affairs in order so that he’s then able to help someone else to do the same.

In Matthew 7:4–5, Our Lord says, “Or how can you say to your brother: Let me cast the speck out of your eye; and behold a beam is in your own eye? You hypocrite, cast out first the beam in your own eye, and then you shall see to cast out the speck out of your brother’s eye.” read more

POPE FRANCIS SAYS NO TO GAYS IN SEMINARY: Comes same day he affirmed a sex abuse victim was born gay

Pope Says No to Gays in Seminary by Alexander Slavsky  •  ChurchMilitant.com  •  May 25, 2018 VATICAN CITY (ChurchMilitant.com) – Pope Francis closed the door on the admission of gays to seminary on the same day he allegedly said homosexuals are born that way.

In a Vatican Insider article published Wednesday, the Holy Father reiterated in a meeting with the Italian bishops that “if you have even the slightest doubt” about homosexuals being considered for seminary, then “it’s better not to let them enter.”

It’s better not to let them enter.Tweet

His remarks came during the 71st general assembly on Monday with the Italian bishops’ conference. Other topics that were touched on at the closed assembly included the lack of vocations in Italy and the transfer of priests to dioceses lacking in numbers, among others. read more
