April 14, 2016 Featured Today Comments Off

By RAYMOND DE SOUZA, KM Part 5 (Editor’s Note: This is the fifth installment in a series by Wanderer contributor Raymond de Souza on Henry VIII’s book defending the seven sacraments against Martin Luther. De Souza edited this updated version of Henry’s work, which is presented to readers in this series. (This series will appear on a regular basis, as space allows.) + + + To The Reader By Henry VIII I do not rank myself among the most learned and eloquent. Yet, in order to avoid the fault of ingratitude and moved by fidelity and piety, I am obliged to defend my Mother, the Spouse of Christ. (1) Would to God my ability to do it were equal to…Continue Reading

Onward From Wisconsin . . . Rutted Abortion Road Winds Its Way Through Changing Political Terrain

April 13, 2016 Featured Today Comments Off

By DEXTER DUGGAN An abortionist joking about the preborn baby he had just hacked up looking like barbecue. A clinic freezer named “the Nursery” where aborted babies’ bodies were kept until being hauled away. Baby-shaped cookies with blood-red icing sent by the abortion clinic to taunt a pro-life office next door. Just a few of the ways abortion workers distanced themselves psychologically from having to get a paycheck by tearing apart little, brief lives. These numbing strategies are mentioned in the new book by former Planned Parenthood abortion clinic director Abby Johnson, written with Kristin Detrow, The Walls Are Talking: Former Abortion Clinic Workers Tell Their Stories (Ignatius Press). After Johnson fled that way of making her living, she founded…Continue Reading

April 12, 2016 Featured Today Comments Off

By BEN JOHNSON SACRAMENTO (LifeSiteNews) — Officials with the California attorney general’s office raided David Daleiden’s home April 5 and confiscated all his undercover video footage of Planned Parenthood’s harvesting and sale of aborted babies’ organs and tissue. Agents raided Daleiden’s Orange County apartment around 2 p.m. local time, an individual familiar with the raid told LifeSiteNews April 5. The “office of Kamala Harris, who was elected with tens of thousands of dollars from taxpayer-funded Planned Parenthood, seized all video footage showing Planned Parenthood’s criminal trade in aborted baby parts, in addition to my personal information,” Daleiden said in an official statement. “Ironically, while seizing my First Amendment work product, they ignored documents showing the illicit scheme between StemExpress and…Continue Reading

The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.” + + + Thomas Paine wrote that to his fellow Americans,…Continue Reading

What Trump Has Wrought

April 10, 2016 Featured Today Comments Off

By PATRICK J. BUCHANAN (Editor’s Note: This column was dated April 5, the day of the Wisconsin primaries. The Wanderer went to press this week on April 7.) + + + As Wisconsinites head for the polls, our Beltway elites are almost giddy. For they foresee a Badger State bashing for Donald Trump, breaking his momentum toward the Republican nomination. Should the Donald fall short of the delegates needed to win on the first ballot, 1,237, there is growing certitude that he will be stopped. First by Ted Cruz; then, perhaps, by someone acceptable to the establishment, which always likes to have two of its own in the race. But this city of self-delusion should realize there is no going…Continue Reading

Culture Of Life 101… “How Dissenters Undermine The Apostolic Mission Of The Church”

April 9, 2016 Featured Today Comments Off

By BRIAN CLOWES Part 2 (Editor’s Note: Brian Clowes has been director of research and training at Human Life International since 1995. For an electronic copy of the book Call to Action or Call to Apostasy, consisting of a detailed description of the current forms of dissent and how to fight them, e-mail him at bclowes@hli.org.) + + + The Deadliness Of Dissenter Style “Dialogue”: One of the most lethal tactics used by dissenters is a warped and one-sided concept of “dialogue.” It is so pernicious because it admits of no objective truth, and yields no ground whatsoever on critical issues such as abortion and women’s ordination. Its only purposes are to blunt the resolve of orthodox Catholics, to advance…Continue Reading

Blessed Marco D’Aviano . . . Capuchin Defender Of The Faith Against Militant Islam

April 8, 2016 Featured Today Comments Off

By JAMES LIKOUDIS One of the glories of the Franciscan Capuchin Order, Blessed Marco d’Aviano (1631-1699), was beatified by Pope John Paul II on April 27, 2003. Devotion to Blessed Marco had always been strong in the Capuchin order and he was especially esteemed by St. Leopoldo of Castelnuovo (1866-1942), that great Apostle of Unity with the Eastern Orthodox and confessor of souls. In beatifying the Capuchin, Pope John Paul II declared him to have been “the center of a vast spiritual renewal thanks to his courageous preaching accompanied by miraculous prodigies.” British writer Dr. Harriet Murphy, who has attracted attention to the saintly Capuchin as “the Savior of Vienna and Europe,” noted: “Blessed Marco d’Aviano was the spiritual force…Continue Reading

A Potpourri . . . Embracing Change, The Universe, And Dr. Einstein

April 7, 2016 Featured Today Comments Off

By GEORGE A. KENDALL We are constantly being told that change is good, that we should embrace change, that we should welcome it, that the only thing constant is change, and so on ad nauseam. Of course the people who relentlessly hammer us with these slogans are not really advocating for change in general but only for certain kinds of change — those changes that involve undermining and destroying a society’s traditional institutions and, in particular, destroying Christianity and the Christian morality that goes with it. Now, when we advocate banning abortion, or clipping the wings of the federal judiciary, particularly the Supreme Court, the kinds of people who urge us to embrace change lose no time telling us that…Continue Reading

Restoring The Sacred… The Majesty Of God

April 6, 2016 Featured Today Comments Off

By JAMES MONTI Holy Week leaves in its wake a vivid series of impressions upon the soul that linger well into the Easter season. Among the most powerful and enduring of these impressions is a deepened and refined sense of the majesty of God. Perhaps we experienced this particularly during the procession of Palm Sunday, representing Christ’s advance upon Jerusalem as the King of Glory who demands entry not only into the earthly Jerusalem for His coming Passion but also into Sheol, the abode of the dead, where by His cross He will set its prisoners free, and into the Heavenly Jerusalem, where He will lead those redeemed by His Precious Blood. Or perhaps we sensed it most on Holy…Continue Reading

A Movie Review . . . God’s Not Dead 2: Christian Films Are Here To Stay

April 5, 2016 Featured Today Comments Off

By REY FLORES When the first God’s Not Dead film was released in theaters in 2014, it earned over $60 million at the box office, signaling that America wants more films that portray Christianity positively and point the finger squarely at a secular world which has made it no secret that it wishes to silence us. While $60 million in earnings at the box office is a very modest number compared to last year’s Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens which earned $932.3 million, God’s Not Dead made a much bigger impact than films of secular genres; an impact which cannot be measured in monetary earnings. And God’s Not Dead has made a big splash via DVD and…Continue Reading
