TRANSCRIPT

When we approach the spiritual life, there’s is only one view which can predominate and that is spirituality involves conflict — spiritual combat as some of the mystics called it. Images of militancy on the way to holiness are all over the pages of Sacred Scripture. Struggle, combat, fight — this is the hallmark of Catholicism. It’s why the Church on earth is called the Church Militant. It’s why we chose the name we did for our activities and productions because the need to bring to mind once more the reality that the Church Militant must be emphasized. read more

TRANSCRIPT

The pope’s recent trip to South Asia has, of course, prompted worldwide media attention on the Church in that region of the world. It also has given rise to reports about the condition of the Church in other parts of the world, namely Europe. Those articles found their way into Catholic publications in Asia, and what a sorry report it must have been for Asian Catholics to read about the near-death knell of the Faith in formerly Catholic Europe. Here was the headline and sub-headline: “All over Europe, Churches Creatively Rethink as Numbers Plummet: A huge drop in church membership and participation since the 1960s has accelerated over the past decade, despite determined Church efforts to reach out with new forms of evangelization.” read more

At the beginning of the Advent journey, during the Mass celebrated at Saint Martha’s on Tuesday morning, December 5, Pope Francis pointed out two fundamental aspects for every Christian: the task to pursue and the style to maintain. He did so focusing his reflection on the passage of the prophet Isaiah (11:1-10), proposed by the Liturgy of the day. read more

TRANSCRIPT

Following up on yesterday’s Vortex where we broached the subject of a loss of faith in the Real Presence, against the backdrop of the continuing saga of Amoris Laetitia and, what some say, is the permission it grants for divorced and civilly remarried Catholics to receive Holy Communion — there is much to talk about here.

The debates have begun in the Catholic world about the story Church Militant broke over the weekend that the interpretation of Amoris Laetitia by the Argentine bishops has now been officially and publically raised to the level of authentic magisterium by Pope Francis himself. Is this exactly what he meant to do? Whether he meant it or not, does it even fall within his authority to do so? If so, what exactly did he do, and why did he do it? If not, same question, what then exactly did he do, what does it mean, and why did he do it? read more
