In other words, he’s the real victim here. Marino Eccher of the PiPress says, “John Nienstedt, the former archbishop of the Archdiocese of Minneapolis and St. Paul, said accusations of sexual misconduct against him were part of a false smear campaign in response to his opposition to gay marriage. Nienstedt’s denial came in a statement Wednesday night, first issued to KMSP [FOX 9] and Minnesota Public Radio.

St. Anne Catholic Church prepares for 136th annual novena

July 14, 2016 World News Comments Off on St. Anne Catholic Church prepares for 136th annual novena

There used to be a steady flow of stories, tales of miracle cures. They were covered in the Daily Journal, the Chicago Tribune and other newspapers, in the early 1900s. The Catholic church in St. Anne, a village of 1,239, was known then for its display of crutches, even a wheelchair — items left behind when visitors, willing to make this annual nine-day pilgrimage, found the strength to walk again. It was once estimated more than 4,000 believers would huddle under the tents on the church grounds on the novena’s final day, the Feast of St. Anne. They would take part in a solemn procession, reciting the rosary and carrying a statue of St. Anne through town. They would be…Continue Reading

Editor’s note: the following is an exclusive interview with Cardinal Carlo Caffara, conducted by OnePeterFive’s Dr. Maike Hickson. Cardinal Caffarra is Archbishop emeritus of Bologna and former member of the Pontifical Council for the Family. It was in a letter to Cardinal Caffarra that Sister Lucia of Fatima revealed that “the final battle between the Lord and the reign of Satan will be about marriage and the family.” Maike Hickson (MH): You have spoken, in a recent interview, about the papal exhortation Amoris Laetitia, and you have said that especially Chapter 8 is unclear and has already caused confusion even among the bishops. If you had the chance to speak with Pope Francis about this matter, what would you tell him? What…Continue Reading

Wichita, Kan., Jul 2, 2016 / 03:02 am (CNA/EWTN News).- There’s good news in Kansas: former army chaplain Father Emil J. Kapaun has taken a step closer to possible beatification and sainthood. But for Scott Carter, coordinator for the Father Kapaun Guild, the story of the priest himself is the real news. “If someone who grew up so close to us, in circumstances fairly similar to us, is able to achieve sainthood, it’s inspiring,” he told CNA June 30. “It really makes the faith hit home.

The Affirmative Argument for Receiving Communion on the Tongue

July 2, 2016 World News Comments Off on The Affirmative Argument for Receiving Communion on the Tongue

A recent post at the site Roman Catholic Man has focused a great deal of attention on the manner in which the faithful receive Communion. As any discussion regarding the Eucharist is a discussion about Our Lord Himself, the importance of this topic cannot be overstated. Bishop Athanasius Schneider recently noted that we are experiencing the fourth great crisis in the history of the Church, and our casual and “banal” treatment of the Eucharist is the greatest sign of this crisis. Now is indeed the time to revisit the topic. Putting aside opinions and personal preferences, let us objectively discuss this matter of paramount importance. Unfortunately, all too often it is viewed
