It has been a big week! Here is a video of a First Holy Communion on May 12, 2013 here at Saint Benedict Center.
Speaking of Judas’ words on St. Mary Magdalene’s “waste” of spikenard, the Holy Father, Pope Francis, said: “This is the first reference that I personally found in the Gospel of poverty as an ideology. The ideologue does not know what love is because they do not know how to gift themselves.” This passage from the Gospels is a great apologetic for lavishing valuable things on … More →

Concerning the recent avalanche of scandal for the Obama White House, Politico ran a story with this unbelievable sentence: “Top GOP sources acknowledge that it’s highly unlikely the White House was directly involved in the IRS mess, but the probe is sure to add to the Republican-spun narrative of Democratic, Big Government overreach.” Can anyone really deny that there is Big Government overreach here?

Some of the things that Michael Voris points out in this episode of the Vortex have been previously noted on Catholicism.org (here, for instance). It’s worth seeing them all in one place. In brief, Pope Francis is not the pope the liberals modernists and progressivists really want.

From Pope Francis’ sermon today, the feast of Saint George (Jorge Bergoglio’s own patron): “But the Christian identity is not an identity card: Christian identity is belonging to the Church, because all of these belonged to the Church, the Mother Church. Because it is not possible to find Jesus outside the Church. The great Paul VI said: ‘Wanting to live with Jesus without the Church, … More →
Forget Justin Bieber. The Canadian pop star has nothing on the Bohemian-Austrian baroque composer and violinist, Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber (12 August 1644 [baptized] – 3 May 1704). Believed to have been Jesuit educated in his earlier years at the Society’s Gymnasium at Opava in Bohemia, von Biber was clearly Catholic in the range of his compositional subject-matter. Besides his beautiful Masses (some of … More →
The nation is still reeling from the tragedy of the Boston Marathon bombing, and one of the two suspects is still at large as I write. Three people were killed, thirteen had limbs amputated, and 170 others are still hospitalized. There is no trivializing the senseless violence — the evil — that has been perpetrated.

File this one under “I” for “inmates running the asylum.” (LifeNews.com) A college professor has been arrested for a profane rant at pro-life students at the University of Buffalo. Professor Laura Curry screamed at students, yelling at them: “Where does it say I can’t use the [not nice] word in public. I can swear because that’s part of my vocabulary.
