TRANSCRIPT

First of all, Happy Solemnity of the Assumption to you, a wonderful feast for the Great Mother of God, Mary Most Holy. And on this great feast, Church Militant has begun bringing you our Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer live every workday. We begin Morning Prayer each work day live at 8 a.m. ET and wrap up each day with Evening Prayer live at 4:45 p.m., again Eastern time.

We also have available to anyone who would like to spend the few dollars for one our St. Michael’s Media Chapel Prayer book, the same one the staff uses here in the chapel each day. We’ve deliberately kept the cost low so we can encourage you to get one and join us each day or as often as possible in our prayer. read more

Trust in God Without Doubting, Insists Pope Francis at Angelus

Trust in God Without Doubting, Insists Pope Francis at Angelus

Reflecting on Jesus Walking on Water, Speaks on How to Hold Onto the Hand Which Saves Us

Angelus 30 August 2015

We are to trust God, without doubting him, even if we are scared…

During his Sunday Angelus address, the Pope made this point to the faithful in a hot St. Peter’s Square, as he reflected on the Gospel episode in which Jesus walked on water, on the Lake of Galilee, and Peter, who wished to reach Him, risked drowning.

“At that moment, the certain word of Jesus, which was like a ‘tightrope’ to grip to face the hostile and turbulent water, wasn’t enough for Peter.” read more

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

August 11, 2017

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
