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.

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

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
