What is happening to Christians in Asia and Africa has forced us to use the word "martyr" again.

The Faithful Island Has Become a Harlot UNAM SANCTAM CATHOLICAM - May 23, 2015 " As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it and said, "If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace—but now it is hidden from your eyes " (Luke 19:41-42). Our Lord spoke these words about the city of Jerusalem, but they could easily be applied to Ireland in the wake of its shameful referendum yesterday legitimizing homosexual marriage.

We shouldn't be surprised, even if we are horrified by Ireland's free-fall collapse. What a King did for England, the Church itself has done for Ireland, which is made the more disturbing because Ireland's stunning apostasy has occurred with no threat of violence whatsoever and within a single generation . If they vote yes, then the Irish are actually voting for their own destruction, whereas in England the cultural and religious ...http://thatthebonesyouhavecrushedmaythrill.blogspot.com/2015/05/on-saints-and-scholars.html

He is the patron of Czechoslovakia, and of confessors. He was martyred because he refused to divulge the content of the Queen's confessions to the King, who promised him honors if he did so.

How to Drink Like a Saint CRISIS MAGAZINE - May 12, 2015 While researching Drinking With the Saints , I was looking for what drinks I could recommend on certain feast days of the liturgical year. What I did not expect to discover was a lesson in how to drink them. That lesson can be distilled into five key points. To drink like a saint—that is, to enjoy alcohol the way it was meant by God to be enjoyed—one must drink… With Moderation Moderation is not only the morally responsible thing to do, it is also the ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/Ma7UC86uwjY/how-to-drink-like-a-saint

Don't Just Discern Your Vocation DA MIHI ANIMAS - May 9, 2015 The following comes from the Catholic Exchange: There's a cause for today's vocation shortage that's rarely addressed. Too many people are discerning; not enough people are deciding. I know they mean well, but instead of courageously pursuing the priesthood or religious life they form safe communities where they can muse on ideals instead of act on principles. I call them the Order of Perpetual Discerners. I'm not questioning their piety. I wouldn't dream of impugning ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2015/05/dont-just-discern-your-vocation.html

The New Evangelization Begins With Us CRISIS MAGAZINE - May 8, 2015 ... so much so that the story of the past is seen as simply the story of how the glories of the present arose out of past horrors. That view leads to endless problems. It makes desire the only available guide to action and satisfying it the only real good. Reason becomes a matter of figuring out the mechanisms for acquiring whatever it is we happen to want. Love, which consists in recognition of value independent of our own desires, loses touch with reality and becomes sentimentalized and ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/FSHXwv50tAY/the-new-evangelization-begins-with-us

The English Martyrs: A Contemporary Reflection CATHOLIC COMMENTARY - May 3, 2015 There is a plaque - of modern origin - in the Church of St Mary the Virgin, the University Church in Oxford. When I stood before this plaque a few months ago, the overwhelming impression it communicated to me was one of indifference . The list is indifferent between those names that are the names of Catholics and those names that are the names of Protestants/Church of England. I suspect that none of those on the list would have found it a matter of no difference as to ...http://rccommentary2.blogspot.com/2015/05/the-english-martyrs-contemporary.html

The Church is nothing other than the conciliar salvation of God, bone of His bone and flesh of His flesh – His body. We are being saved together whether we will admit it or not. Those who study and quote the Bible are themselves handling documents that were written, copied and preserved by others. It is a conciliar document. The Orthodox way of life urges us to embrace the fullness of our conciliar being. In ...http://fatherdavidbirdosb.blogspot.com/2015/04/our-conciliar-salvation-fr.html

Weekend Adventures in Emmy-Land JOURNEY OF A CATHOLIC NERD WRITER - April 29, 2015 ... positive I've seen Kendra and her family at Mass before. Since these ladies are either fellow locals or were in town for the Catholic Women Blogging Network Conference and I had to pull out of the conference when I found of my D's schedule, I was glad to be able to at least watch this film with them. The movie (which will get its own review later this week) was a great pick to watch with these inspiring women. Lots of tears shed but lots of hugs and smiles all around.

"No One Has Won Anything Here; We've All Lost." SAINT LOUIS CATHOLIC - April 29, 2015 ... and pride, the belief that we finally knew more than those thousands of saints who had gone before us, had led to the destruction of much of our church, the loss of clergy and religious, compromise with the world, especially in moral matters, the endangering of our families and children, and our own spiritual bankruptcy. The "Springtime of the Church of Vatican II" has never come, because we, in our smug superiority, had severed our connection with our past and ...http://stlouiscatholic.blogspot.com/2015/04/no-one-has-won-anything-here-weve-all.html

Catholic Sensibility: Our Compass of Sanity CRISIS MAGAZINE - April 27, 2015 ... Catholic sensibility entails. I sometimes help out with funerals at my parish by serving at Mass. It usually is an edifying experience, although sometimes I inwardly cringe at the music often sung at such solemn moments in the life of an individual and the Church. One day I was asked to help usher at a wake of a young person. Although busy that day with work, I went over to the parish church to see if I could help out for an hour or so. There ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/665xt62BrYY/catholic-sensibility-our-compass-of-sanity

Flashback Friday: Johnny Carson and the Meaning of Death IN OTHER WORDS - April 24, 2015 ... but his comments make it clear that he's not always a comprehending Catholic. (In Cavuto's defense, he wrote this column in 2003; perhaps he's corrected himself since then). The Catholic writer James Hitchcock, a man eminently more qualified than Neil Cavuto to address the subject, comments on this tendency: This compulsory praise includes a compulsory insistence that the deceased is already in heaven, indeed has always been one of God's favorite people, ...http://hadleyblog.blogspot.com/2015/04/flashback-friday-johnny-carson-and.html

The Feast of St. George! ARE WE THERE YET? - April 23, 2015 ... passed down to us in the Golden Legend , has dragons and princesses running around, with our hero saving the day.

In one of the earliest legends , he's put to death, chopped up into little pieces, buried, and set on fire ~ three times ~ and each time God restores him to life!

Does Scripture Teach Us to Pray for the Departed, and to Pray to the Saints? SHAMELESS POPERY - April 15, 2015 Daniel Chorny, The Bosom of Abraham (15th c.) In regards to prayer and the Saints, Catholics do two things to which Protestants tend to object: Praying to the Saints: Asking the Saints to pray for us, etc. Praying for the Saints: Praying for the dead, commending their souls to God.

Casting Out Devils From Your Life DA MIHI ANIMAS - April 9, 2015 The following comes from the Catholic Exchange: Jesus said with the utmost clarity : "Some devils can only be cast out by prayer and fasting."(Mt. 17:21) Often the devil or devils have a real stronghold in our lives, and to make things worse, we are not even aware of it. One of the greatest victories of the devil is to hide or camouflage himself, or better yet, trick us into believing that he does not even exist! Saint Ignatius of Loyola, in his rules for discernment (Rule ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2015/04/casting-out-devils-from-your-life.html

It was an A yesterday, and it will be an A tomorrow, and next week, and for a thousand years.

We must remain faithful to the today of the Church, no the yesterday or tomorrow .
