January 20, 2017 World News Comments Off on TRAD LIVES MATTER! US Bishop attacks “ad orientem” worship, overrides Summorum Pontificum

UPDATE: I’ll be a bit more restrictive with comments.  Some of you are… sheesh.  Think before even starting to write, please. ___ Originally Published on: Jan 19, 2017 @ 14:25 ___ I received a copy of a letter sent by the Bishop of Rockford, Most Rev. David J. Malloy, to the priests of that diocese. In this letter, a follow up to their diocesan “Presbytery Day” (where he spoke to them about “challenges”), the bishop writes: Following that talk, I write now to ask for your cooperation on several matters that have since been referred to me

Pope: Luther’s intention was to renew the Church, not divide her

January 20, 2017 World News Comments Off on Pope: Luther’s intention was to renew the Church, not divide her

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Thursday said that “the intention of Martin Luther five hundred years ago was to renew the Church, not divide her”. Speaking to members of an Ecumenical Delegation from Finland who are in the Vatican to take part in the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, the Pope recalled his visit to Sweden last October and said that the “gathering there gave us the courage and strength, in our Lord Jesus Christ, to look ahead to the ecumenical journey that we are called to walk together.” The Pope ended his speech with off-the-cuff remarks thanking the bishop leading the delegation for having brought his grandchildren to the audience and pointing out that  “we need the simplicity…Continue Reading

New York Times refuses to call the March for Life by its name. And pro-lifers are mad.

January 17, 2017 World News Comments Off on New York Times refuses to call the March for Life by its name. And pro-lifers are mad.

January 16, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Pro-life leaders are calling out The New York Times for its biased coverage of the March for Life after the newspaper steadfastly avoided identifying the event by its name in a recent article. In a story published Thursday about how Kellyanne Conway, an advisor to President-elect Donald Trump, will be one of the scheduled speaker’s at the pro-life event, The New York Times used “March for Life” only once, and not as a stand alone title but to refer to the title of the event’s

The Maltese Disaster

January 15, 2017 World News Comments Off on The Maltese Disaster

The bishops of Malta, in a document that can only be called disastrous, repeatedly invoking Pope Francis’ Amoris laetitia, have directly approved divorced and remarried Catholics taking holy Communion provided they feel “at peace with God”. Unlike, say, the Argentine document on Amoris which, one could argue, left just enough room for an orthodox reading, however widely it also left the doors open for abuse by others, the Maltese bishops in their document come straight out and say it: holy Communion is for any Catholic who feels “at peace with God” and the Church’s

MALTA, January 13, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The bishops of Malta have given the green light to divorced and civilly remarried Catholics in their dioceses to receive Communion if they are “at peace with God.” The bishops say it might be “humanly impossible” to follow Church teaching and live chastely while civilly remarried, a requirement for receiving the Eucharist in this situation. The affirmation comes from the Bishops’ new document “Criteria for the Application of Chapter VIII of Amoris Laetitia,” in which they say their guidelines are “in line with the directions given by…Continue Reading

Bishop Schneider Offers Hope Amidst Crisis Permitted by “Divine Providence”

January 14, 2017 World News Comments Off on Bishop Schneider Offers Hope Amidst Crisis Permitted by “Divine Providence”

As the ecclesiastical crisis continues to deepen in 2017, I have found myself facing a certain exhaustion; a feeling that, while knowing the gates of hell will not prevail against the Church, that Christ will have the final victory, there is no respite from the near-constant series of assaults from the enemies of God’s truth. I know that many of you feel the same way. While we here at OnePeterFive believe we have an obligation to continue to cover the news of what is happening within our beloved Church, however unpleasant, there is also need for reassurance, a rediscovery of the most

Dr. Paul Ehrlich, author of the 1968 bestseller The Population Bomb, is scheduled to speak in Vatican City during the February 27-March 1 conference that will discuss “how to save the natural world.” The Stanford biologist has championed in his career sex-selective abortion as well as mass forced sterilization as legitimate methods to curb population growth. Titled Biological Extinction, the conference will address what Vatican organizers call an unsustainable “imbalance” betwe

Speaker Paul Ryan: We Will Defund Planned Parenthood Period, And Here’s Why

January 12, 2017 World News Comments Off on Speaker Paul Ryan: We Will Defund Planned Parenthood Period, And Here’s Why

Last night, in an interview on CNN, pro-life Speaker Paul Ryan explained why the Republican Congress will defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business. Ryan said Congress has a long-standing pro-life principle that it will not force taxpayers to be involved in the abortion industry. He also said that defunding Planned Parenthood will have absolutely no negative effect on women’s health because the funding will be rerouted to legitimate Health Care Centers that actually provide healthcare for women as opposed to abortions. Ryan said federal community health centers are “all throughout Wisconsin, they’re in virtually every community,” adding: “By putting these dollars in the federal community health centers, which provide the same kinds of services. For every Planned Parenthood, there are federal
