“Contrition, confession and reparation are the three necessary elements for absolution”

ROME (ChurchMilitant.com) – While many prelates are falling silent on the grave issue regarding sacrilegious reception of Holy Communion, Cdl. Gerhard Müller is speaking up.

During an interview published Wednesday, the prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) was asked by Vaticanista Ed Pentin about the prelate’s concerns, regarding the controversial papal exhortation Amoris Laetitia, which many bishops are using to justify giving Holy Communion to the divorced and civilly remarried. read more

SAINTS THOMAS MORE & JOHN FISHER: DEFENDERS OF MARRIAGE

They teach the faithful how to fight fellow Catholics without hating them

Saint Thomas More, whose feast we celebrate today along with St. John Fisher, the only bishop to stand with him in defense of the Church’s teaching on marriage, teach the faithful how to resist the corruption of fellow Catholics while avoiding all bitterness towards them.

Both More and Fisher died in 1535, resisting England’s Catholic King Henry VIII, who wanted to divorce his wife Catherine of Aragon and obtain a decree of nullity from Pope Clement VII to marry Anne Boleyn. When the pope refused, all of England’s bishops sided with Henry VIII except Bp. Fisher, who backed More. Both remained faithful to the Church and pope in upholding Church teaching on the indissolubility of marriage. Both men lost their heads as a witness to what they believed. read more

June 22, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The new U.S. delegation to the United Nations has rejected a resolution on violence against women because it called for abortion to continue in countries where it’s legal.

Canada introduced the resolution, which was adopted by consensus.

The U.S. said they supported it in “spirit,” but not its call for “comprehensive sexual and health-care services” and “safe abortion where such services are permitted by national law.”

“We do not recognize abortion as a method of family planning, nor do we support abortion in our reproductive health assistance,” said U.S. First Secretary to the U.N. in Geneva Jason Mack. The U.S. “must dissociate from the consensus,” he said as reported by Reuters. read more

Readings & Reflections: The Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus & St. John Fisher, June 23,2017

Readings & Reflections: The Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus & St. John Fisher, June 23,2017

“The term ‘Sacred Heart of Jesus’ denotes the entire mystery of Christ, the totality of his being, and his person…. Devotion to the Sacred Heart is a wonderful historical expression of the Church’s piety for Christ…. It calls for a fundamental attitude of conversion and reparation, of love and gratitude, apostolic commitment and dedication to Christ and his saving work” (Directory on Popular Piety and the Liturgy # 166, 172). “The Sacred Heart of Jesus… ‘is quite rightly considered the chief sign and symbol of that… love with which the divine Redeemer continually loves the eternal Father and all human beings’ without exception” (CCC:478). “The essential nucleus of Christianity is expressed in the Heart of Jesus; in Christ the whole of the revolutionary newness of the Gospel was revealed and given to us: the Love that saves us and already makes us live in God’s eternity. Even our shortcomings, our limitations, and our weaknesses must lead us back to the Heart of Jesus. His divine Heart calls to our hearts, inviting us to come out of ourselves, to abandon our human certainties to trust in him and, following his example, to make of ourselves a gift of love without reserve” ( Pope Benedict XVI). read more

Dementia patients too often being killed wrongfully

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (ChurchMilitant.com) – The pioneer for legalized euthanasia in the Netherlands is denouncing a lack of ethics as legal safeguards for vulnerable patients erode.

Fr. Ignatius Offy: “Her father prayed the Rosary each day for her safe return”

BAKHDIDA, Iraq (ChurchMilitant.com) – A father prayed the Rosary daily for the return of his daughter after she’d been kidnapped by ISIS in 2014. His prayers were finally answered as six-year-old Christina has been restored to her family.

TRANSCRIPT

The Church of Nice and its leaders should be terrified of facing Our Blessed Lord when they die. This insanity of even suggesting that people in a state of mortal sin should be admitted to reception of Holy Communion is nothing short of diabolical. Those who profess this sacrilege and try to advance it are stoking the fires of their damnation; and they need to be confronted and denounced as the children of the devil that they are. Those clerics and bishops who sit back and say nothing about it will also have a share in the divine retribution. No wonder so few of these men ever mention Hell or talk about it as a place no one really goes. They better hope they’re right, which they aren’t. read more
