Muslims preserve a chapel sitting on the spot where Christ left His footprint in stone

Christians and Muslims venerate what all believe to be the very footprint made by Christ on the Mount of Olives when He ascended into Heaven 40 days after His resurrection.

TRANSCRIPT

If you haven’t noticed lately, various cardinals in the Church are really going at it. On the one side, the correct side, you have splendid men like Cdl. Raymond Burke and Cdl. Robert Sarah and Cdl. Carlo Caffarra demanding a return to faithfulness and clarity and tradition and opposition to the prevailing winds of Freemasonry and modernism howling through the Church.

On the other side you have men like Cdl. Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga, the so-called Vice Pope, and men like Walter Kasper and Reinhard Marx of Germany, and Blase Cupich of Chicago and Joseph Tobin of Newark, all practically inventing a new Church out of thin air, cloaking their destructive efforts as having some deep concern for the poor.

President Trump and Pope Francis Stand Against Abortion: We Have a “Joint Commitment in Favor of Life”

President Trump and Pope Francis Stand Against Abortion: We Have a “Joint Commitment in Favor of Life”

Pope Francis met with U.S. President Donald Trump and his family Wednesday at the Vatican where they exchanged gifts and spoke about peace and other issues.

President Trump and the pope have sparred over immigration, the environment and other issues, but both agree on one essential issue: the protection of human life from abortion. They released a joint statement standing against abortion:

“This morning, Wednesday 24 May 2017, the Honorable Donald Trump, president of the United States of America, was received in audience by the Holy Father Francis and subsequently met with His Eminence Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin, accompanied by His Excellency Msgr.

‘Comfortable’ Catholics are ‘unwilling’ to see dangers facing Church: Scholar Anna Silvas

‘Comfortable’ Catholics are ‘unwilling’ to see dangers facing Church: Scholar Anna Silvas

By LifeSiteNews staff, Wed May 24, 2017 – 12:54 pm EST

ROME, May 23, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Too many Catholics are caught up in a “comfortable” Catholicism that makes them unwilling, and even unable, to see the “grave problems” currently besetting the Church, said a renowned theologian and one of the world’s top Catholic experts on the Church Fathers.

“Most Catholics seem to live their life on a sort of comfortable zone, just the way that a lot of bishops live in a sort of safety-first sort of zone,” Australian patristics and classics scholar Anna Silvas said. “It is too disturbing” for those living in such a zone to “pry any more deeply,” because what they might find will challenge them too much, she added.

Readings & Reflections with Cardinal Tagle’s Video: The Ascension of the Lord A & St. Bede the Venerable, May 25,2017 (Thursday) or May 28,2017 (Sunday)

Readings & Reflections with Cardinal Tagle’s Video: The Ascension of the Lord A & St. Bede the Venerable,  May 25,2017 (Thursday) or May 28,2017 (Sunday)

Today is Ascension Day. Coming 40 days after Easter, it marks the occasion when the risen Christ ascended to the Father in glory. Ascension is not only a great fact of the New Testament, but a great factor in the life of Christ and Christians, and no complete view of Jesus Christ is possible unless the ascension and its consequences are included. The Acts of the Apostles records the Ascension of Christ, “Jesus was lifted up before their eyes in a cloud which took Him from their sight” (Acts 1:9). Our Church celebrates this event of Christ’s glorification. It celebrates the fulfillment of the salvation plan for us and united all things on earth to those in heaven. Jesus our Lord ascended in glory, never leaving us but remaining ever present as He proclaimed in the Gospel of Matthew 28:20, “I am with you always, until the end of the age.”
