Fr. Tom Collins Adds His Opinion to the Presidential Debates.

I pray that the observations below, seeking to get the beam out of my own eye,
will help all of us to appreciate more deeply our need for the regenerative grace
offered to the world by Christ through the gracious ministry of His Holy Spirit.
Thank God that the gates of hell cannot prevail against a repenting heart.
Please pray for the ongoing conversion of all us pastors.
In Christ,
Fr. Tom

Many have fallen into the trap of capitulating to media propaganda by agreeing
with the premise that Trump is “the lesser of two evils”.  Although I do not agree
100% with everything he is proposing, I cannot find anything pro-actively and objectively
“evil” in what Trump is proposing for our nation.

Fr Theodore Hesburgh, Enemy of the Catholic Faith, on 2017 Postage Stamp

       In 2017, the United States Postal Service will celebrate an enemy of the authentic Catholic Faith on one of its postage stamps. Fr. Theodore M. Hesburgh (1917-2015), a leading proponent of the liberal agenda and the one-time President of Notre Dame University, was not a model Catholic educator. Not only was Fr. Hesburgh not a model Catholic educator, but he was actually PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER ONE in the Catholic community for almost single-handedly being responsible for the elimination of orthodox Catholic teaching in our once Catholic Universities, and destroying their commitment to authentic Catholic education by fostering their conversion to a university status, completely independent of Catholic control. Consider that:
  • Fr. Hesburgh was the leading promoter of the LAND O’LAKES document in 1967, which was the “Declaration of Independence” of Catholic Universities from Church authority at that time, and remains so to this day. As a result of Fr. Hesburgh’s influence, once proudly Catholic Universities, such as Notre Dame, Georgetown, Fordham, and Boston College have lost their essential Catholic character.

Do You REALLY Think Putin is a Christian? Wake Up from Your Delusional Sleep!

Listen to their own words!

Putin, Soros, Hillary,
Working together for America's Downfall

By David Martin

Vladimir Putin is eyeing with glee the prospect of Hillary Clinton becoming the next U.S. president. Her long-standing history of aiding the Russians is no secret, and the Kremlin is hoping to use her as their pawn to fully convert America to a socialist state—a plan that was greatly advanced through Barack Obama.

A Catholic's Voter Guide: It's Clearly a MORTAL SIN to vote for Hillary Clinton!

There's been plenty of chatter on blogs and Facebook, etc. arguing about what is moral and not moral in voting this year. Several of my readers have passed along this voters' guide from an orthodox priest with a doctorate in Moral Law and a legal degree in civil law. As you try to form your conscience to vote in the election in November, why not give this priest's opinion serious consideration. After all, you do want to make your decisions with a "correct" conscience, don't you -- and not one formed by the media or your own biases? It is clear from the principles here that voting for Hillary Clinton is a mortal sin. Not voting for Donald Trump who has promised to limit many of the evils supported by the Democratic party is to act like the "stupid Galatians" as Paul calls them. Can Donald Trump be trusted? We won't know unless we give him a chance.   We know Hillary can be trusted -- to do all the evil she's promised and more! Please don't be stupid in November. Even worse -- don't commit the mortal sin of voting for Hillary and the party of death! As for not voting, how is that being a responsible citizen?                                            Mary Ann

Our Liberal Perceptions of Life will be the Cause of our Demise

Our Liberal Perceptions of Life will be the Cause of our Demise

Sent by God - Conception and Ensoulment
Jean Mansel, from a fifteenth-century French manuscript

The following is an excerpt from a few weeks ago in our parish bulletin, written by our Pastor who I’m sure wants to remain anonymous.

“We are living in a very delicate and fragile moment in the history of our humanity and if we don’t take the time and stop a while to understand the true nature of the human person, we are going to make a lot of mistakes. When God creates someone, He knows who He brings into the world. He knows who that person is: this is His child and He cares about him. So, because of the philosophical turmoil in which we are in this day and age, some fail to understand that there is a natural law that goes hand in hand with the reality of the human person.

And Why Are You Catholics Saying You Will NEVER Vote for Donald Trump?

Donald Trump Supports Defunding Planned Parenthood!

Trump supports making the Hyde Amendment permanent.That promise alone has Cecile Richards foaming at the mouth. When taxes are denied to the death peddlers, babies live. 

Please, all you purists out there, think of what you are doing when you say you will NEVER vote for Donald Trump. How many babies here and abroad will pay the price for your anti-Trump convictions if Killary Hillary is elected? 

Where Have All the Catholics Gone? Long Time Passing?

A few days ago my husband and I drove the Cabot Trail on Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. We were amazed at the large number of Catholic Churches we saw. We stopped at several in towns along the way. They all advertise no more than one Mass a weekend on either Saturday or Sunday. One church had a sign seeking offerings since their congregation is so small and the church needs repairs. They  depend on visitors, the sign read, and would appreciate any help. At one church there was a sign on the bulletin board advertising one daily Mass A MONTH! The others may not even have that.

Cape Breton clearly had a large French influence in its history and the number of old churches reflects what must have once been a vibrant Catholic community. Clearly, it's a thing of the past. We stopped at a church cemetery to pray our rosary and I couldn't help thinking that the cemetery was a pretty accurate metaphor for the faith in so many places. The churches are empty and all the Catholics are in the graveyard.

Ordinary Conscience Cannot Exempt from the Church's Moral law

         Ordinary Conscience Cannot Exempt from the Church's Moral Law
by Rudolph Lohse

       
         The classic definition of “conscience” in the Catholic Church is that of Thomas Aquinas, for whom “conscience is the mind of man passing moral judgments.” It is the voice of reason, separated from feeling, emotion and desire. Conscience is imbedded in the intellect which apprehends and interprets the moral law. It is not an immediate internal illumination of each person for himself without reference to an objective norm found outside of man and independent of his subjective persuasion. It requires development and careful training for knowing the laws of God. We have an obligation to educate it.

         Today, many “Catholics in Name Only” (CHINO) use an appeal to conscience to try to justify their aberrant behavior, in violation of the moral law as taught by our Church. A typical statement, often counseled to the laity by misguided priests is: “The Church says that if a teaching is not designated as a dogma, and if two or three moral theologians hold a contrary opinion, a Catholic is not conscience-bound to follow the teaching of the Magisterium.” These priests insinuate that sin only happens when people have failed to follow their conscience. So if, personally, you do not think that an objective sin is really a sin, these priests claim that it is not a sin for you. Such comments completely misrepresent Church teaching, because they are gross and irresponsible oversimplifications. This is a serious error, which misleads people into thinking they are avoiding sin, when in fact they remain quite guilty of their immoral actions.

The Death of the West -- A Howl or a Whimper?

I'm reading an amazing novel written in 1975, Camp of the Saints by Jean Raspail, that I can only describe as prophetic. It tells the story of an "armada" of broken down ships sailing from India to Europe with a million poverty stricken souls headed for the promised land. None of the Western nations will face the fact that such an invasion will unalterably change the face of the country where they land. All the leftists around the world cheer on the invaders including the liberal press. They attack the military and the police and proclaim that charity and mercy demand the refugees be welcomed with open arms. Meanwhile, the large numbers of immigrants already in the West see in the "armada" a call to better their own situation against the "racist" European whites and unrest becomes widespread. The pope of mercy is "Benedict XVI" although his persona is more descriptive of Francis.
