THE VORTEX: CHAPEL TIME – Time to pray

TRANSCRIPT

The importance of prayer, a constant consistent habit of prayer, cannot be overstated. Saint Padre Pio, the 20th-century stigmatist, put it very straightforwardly: “Remember that one does not win the battle without prayer. The choice is yours.” Saints are always succinct.

What all of us are engaged in is spiritual battle — spiritual warfare and spiritual combat. Indispensable to this warfare is prayer. In fact, prayer is warfare. Remember the reality, the supernatural reality: While we are made in the Image of God, we are also inclined to sin. Sin and God are not compatible. So human beings have to take active steps to tear away from sin and our desire for it and propel ourselves to God. read more

THE VORTEX: MANY BAD POINTS – The talking points of the Church of Nice

THE VORTEX: MANY BAD POINTS – The talking points of the Church of Nice

TRANSCRIPT

What sort of things do you hear these days from the agents of change within the Church? Here are some of their talking points — all bad points:

  • The Church is in “transition”
  • Catholicism is a “living tradition”
  • The more you get into circumstances, the more the moral rules can be disregarded
  • We can’t always do the “best” thing
  • “Irregular situations” — how do we deal with people who “can’t” live out the Church’s teaching
  • We must respect foremost the supremacy of conscience
  • The Church isn’t about just teaching moral “rules” to adults but teaching them how to be good “discerners”
  • Discernment is looking at the concrete circumstances of the here and now and determining what I can most generously give back to God right now
  • Church teaching and doctrine must always be respected, but we need to take into account the whole range of human experience — biology, psychology, etc
  • The Church doesn’t really teach us about morality through official statements. There are very few
  • We must explore if a Catholic can live in good conscience, opposing Church teaching
  • I don’t have to follow the Church’s moral teachings, just respect them
  • They shouldn’t be understood as teachings, as much as they are just rules, which sometimes need to be broken
  • We must respect the “grace” of God present in the lives of those in mortally sinful relationships
  • We need to listen to the Church like we would a father — respect what he is saying, think about it and then decide for yourself
  • We must “retrain” and “retool” seminaries to help make “adults” who can “accompany” the people
  • We must move from a “moral education” to a “moral formation,” not speak about rules but the ability to think through the rules

Notice what is missing from the list — deliberately — a complete refusal to incorporate any notion of grace — the call to living heroically. In most dioceses around the country, indeed throughout the West, this evil agenda is either being cooperated with or ignored — cooperated with by wicked prelates or ignored by cowardly or careerist prelates. read more

TRANSCRIPT

It’s a helpful analogy when trying to understand the process by which the world is going to Hell to think of a railroad track. Two major beams parallel to each other with lots of cross connectors or ties, just like railroad tracks. In our analogy, the two major tracks are the political or cultural left and the theological left. They each are heading in the same direction, along parallel tracks, each sharing much in common with regard to their shared view of humanity and how that view should be brought about. read more

TRANSCRIPT

What you’re watching right now was actually shot a few days ago on the Friday evening of our Third Annual Men’s Conference — Strength and Honor. As part of the weekend, we always include a tour of the studios for those guys who arrive on Friday afternoon. We thought this year it might be fun to have the guys be part of the Vortex taping. About half the attendees came in early, so here they are having a good time — men!

We started having these conferences because we recognized the need for a restoration of authentic masculinity in the Church. The sad truth is that today so many Catholic men have been emasculated by various policies and practices by the Church of Nice that actually distort the glory of the Church and the role of the masculine. read more

TRANSCRIPT

There is much to be resisted in the Church these days. As painful and dreadful as that fact may be, it’s the truth. Our normal instinct as Catholics is to see the clergy as holy or at least more dedicated to holiness than the laity, striving to bring us stubborn laity along, we, who are more concerned with the world, like dragging a donkey that doesn’t want to move.

In the past few decades, however, this paradigm seems to have reversed. There are now so many instances of clergy utterly unconcerned with their personal holiness or the holiness of souls entrusted to them, it’s hard to believe, yet it’s true. This is not to say, of course, that there are not good, holy priests. There are many, just as not all bishops are weak or bad or wicked or ambitious. But the good men, meaning those who are deeply in love with the Son of God, are proving to be the exceptions. read more
