Readings & Reflections: Friday of the Nineteenth Week in Ordinary Time & St. Louis of Toulouse, August 18,2017

Joshua addresses the people, and in the process provides a catalogue of the astounding mercies and graces that the Lord has bestowed on his people: Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, the Red Sea crossing, the fall of Jericho. All of it points to the victory of God’s love over what we would otherwise deem impossible. The ability to love in this way is what God imparts sacramentally to married people. read more

By Edward Pentin

In a new interview, Cardinal Raymond Burke has said it is “now necessary” that a declaration be issued on key areas of Church doctrine that are “not clear” in Pope Francis’ teachings.

The Holy Father will then be “obliged to respond” in order to bring clarification to those teachings, he said.

The cardinal told The Wanderer newspaper Aug. 14 that such a formal act of correction has not been invoked “for several centuries” and until now it has never been used “in a doctrinal way.” read more

New investigation uncovers more evidence of Church in crisis

BOSTON (ChurchMilitant.com) – Fifteen years after its bombshell report on clerical sex abuse, the Boston Globe is again throwing light on a dark corner of the Church — this time exposing the plight of children fathered by unchaste priests.

Sacrilegious Attacks Against Church Increasing by Anita Carey  •  ChurchMilitant.com  •  August 17, 2017

Priest: “We have lost our sense of sacredness and sanctity”

Near-daily reports of sacrilegious incidents against Catholics are being ignored by media or downplayed by police.

Since the beginning of August, the number of sacrilegious and violent attacks against Catholics and churches has begun escalating. These attacks are not only perpetrated by Islamic extremists in Islamic strongholds but here in America and Europe by seemingly normal individuals who have lost all respect for God and His holy houses.

The violent attacks are getting some international press coverage, but many of the non-violent attacks are passed over by media, while police are refusing to acknowledge the gravity of the crimes. Some incidents never make it past the local news coverage. Just Wednesday, St. Barnabas Catholic Church in Berkeley Township, New Jersey, was vandalized with upside-down crosses, profanity and the words “Satan rules” spray painted on the church sign. read more

TRANSCRIPT

With so many leaders in the Church in open rebellion to Her and Her divinely revealed teachings, it’s worth alerting people to the treachery. Currently, in the English-speaking world at any given moment, you will find some combination of the following four priests, spreading error and sowing confusion anywhere they can gain an audience. And because of their influence in Church circles, they gain entrance to many many audiences.

First, the big four are Fr. James Martin, Fr. Thomas Rosica, Fr. Bryan Massingale and Fr. Timothy Radcliffe. Combined, they form the leading edge of a public relations campaign to introduce doubt and confusion into the minds of as many Catholics who will give them a hearing. read more

Our recollection of such a miracle of mercy moves us eagerly to forgive “seventy-seven times” those who offend us, delighting to see their sins “flowing downstream” like the waters of the Jordan until they “disappear entirely.” read more
