Synod Off and Running

Jimmy Akin: “Remarks made by a key official at the opening of the current Synod of Bishops seem cool to the idea that there will be a change in the Church’s doctrine and practice regarding the divorced and civilly remarried. This comes as heartening news to supporters of the Church’s historic doctrine and discipline.” Read More.

"And fear ye not them that kill the body, and are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him that can destroy both soul and body in hell."

Ten people were killed and nine were injured Thursday, after a 26-year old gunman went on a shooting rampage at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon.

I see where the father of one of the wounded told CNN, that the gunman singled out Christians.

Before going into spinal surgery, Anastasia Boylan told her father the gunman entered her classroom firing.“I’ve been waiting to do this for years,” the gunman told the professor teaching the class. He shot him point blank.

Apparently, everyone in the classroom dropped to the ground.
The gunman, while reloading his handgun, ordered the students to stand up and asked if they were Christians.

“And they would stand up and he said, ‘Good, because you’re a Christian, you’re going to see God in just about one second,'” Boylan’s father, Stacy, told CNN, relaying her account.
“And then he shot and killed them.”

One law enforcement official told the New York Times, “He appears to be an angry young man who was very filled with hate.”
The gunman died in an exchange of gunfire with police officers. It is not clear whether he was shot or whether he shot himself.

Dancing With Mr. D: #ShoutYourAbortion

Exposed for garnering the organs of aborted fetuses for profit – often in the most grotesque and inhumane ways conceivable — Planned Parenthood has recently been trying to garner support on social media with a new hashtag stunt called #shoutyourabortion.

The point is to encourage women to talk about their abortions, preferably in positive ways.

#Shoutyourabortion proponents want to downplay abortion by defiantly celebrating it.

Perhaps we should should #shouttheirabortion —because the life of an unborn child is worth proclaiming. If parenthood is refused in abortion, its reality is no less true: an unborn child has parents. Proclaiming the child brings the child’s life forth as a human reality, beloved of God. Let us pray that this realization may be an unforseen consequence of Planned Parenthood’s #shoutyourabortion campaign.

2 Ruminations on Neomodernism

In my book I pointed out that neomodernists raise the question of whether Jesus intended to found a Church, since they understand his mission as concerned only with inaugurating the Kingdom of God, i.e., delivering people from spiritual and physical suffering in this world, which is how they understand salvation. The Syllabus of Errors also cites their rejection of Christ’s conferring the keys of the Kingdom on St. Peter, and with this grant of divine authority Peter’s earthly leadership of His Church, and His institution of the sacraments, all except Baptism and the Eucharist.

In the neomodernist movement, believing as they do all dogma to be relative, all Christian denominations (now over 30,000) are to be regarded as equal with the Catholic Church. Indeed, George Tyrell came to view Christianity as merely an intermediary stage in the evolution of a new “universal religion.” Neomodernists declared that the ecumenism taught by Vatican II required that Catholics see non-Christian religions as equally valid expressions of man’s search for truth....

Has Satan's Smoke Cleared? Divide et Impera...

It is heresy to teach that homosexual relations are not disordinate or are not disordered or have positive elements.”
The comments come in a newly released video by the Polish publication Polonia Christiana called Crisis in the Church. In addition to Cardinal Burke, the video features Archbishop Jan Pawel Lenga, who takes aim at Cardinal Reinhard Marx, president of the German bishops conference and one of Pope Francis’ Council of Nine advisors. Speaking of Marx’s acceptance of communion for remarried divorcees and his statement that the Church in Germany “is not a subsidiary of Rome,” Archbishop Lenga said, “There was Marx, Karl Marx. And if present Marx says similar things, then there is no real difference.”
Lenga, the emeritus archbishop of Karaganda, Kazakhstan, added that if the Church in Germany thinks they are so superior, “it’s some kind of Phantom, we should chase it away by the sign of the Cross.”
Indeed. For more on how, to use the words of the prophetic utterance of Pope Paul VI, Satan still attempts to prevail, watch this:
