Dialogue With A Protester

June 26, 2022 Frontpage Comments Off on Dialogue With A Protester

By DONALD DeMARCO This dialogue did take place, but solely in the imagination of the author. Yet, I think, it never wanders from reality.Interviewer: Thank you for agreeing to share your thoughts with me. I am a reporter and would like to understand better what you are doing. Oh, excuse me, take this bottle of water. You must be hoarse from all that shouting.Protester: I am always eager to help others to see the merits of our cause. We are fighting against, bigotry, sexism, and an antiquated form of conservatism.Interviewer: My question to you, and you must be patient with me, is this: What are you really protesting?Protester: You really are testing my patience! We are protesting the apparent overturning…Continue Reading

June 25, 2022 Frontpage Comments Off on “What The Hell Is Going On In The Catholic Church?”

By CHRISTOPHER MANION In the fall of 2004, the local news here in Northern Virginia, reported that the pastor of St. John the Apostle in Leesburg had been arrested for the possession of child pornography.To obtain the details of the charges, I made a routine call to the Commonwealth Attorney’s office in Loudoun County, where Leesburg serves as the county seat. I mentioned that I wrote for a Catholic newspaper, nothing more, a typical over-the-transom request, and left my callback number.I expected that I’d eventually hear from the county’s press office in a couple of days.But that didn’t happen. Instead, late that same afternoon, I got a call from the Commonwealth Attorney himself. He was irate. In fact, he was…Continue Reading

Proofs of the Real Presence

June 24, 2022 Frontpage Comments Off on Proofs of the Real Presence

By JOE SIXPACK Part 2 Theology and Scripture put aside, some of the most compelling pieces of evidence are when the Eucharist has quite literally changed into Jesus’ Body and Blood. This article will focus on only a few of those events from both modern times and in history.During a Mass at a parish retreat in 2006, a Host that was about to be distributed was seen effusing a reddish substance. The diocese decided to conduct extensive scientific study of the Host to discern its cause and origin and to ensure there was no hoax being played. The study took several years but its results were eventually published in 2013. The reddish substance analyzed in the Host was indeed blood,…Continue Reading

Islamic Terrorists Are Slaughtering Catholics In Nigeria

June 22, 2022 Frontpage Comments Off on Islamic Terrorists Are Slaughtering Catholics In Nigeria

By CHRISTOPHER MANION On Pentecost Sunday, at least fifty worshippers were killed, and some seventy injured, in an attack on St. Francis Catholic Church in Nigeria.Attacks on Christians in Nigeria have become so common that they aren’t deemed “newsworthy” anymore. And to date the government of Nigeria has done little to respond.Apologists for the killers insist that the attackers, Islamist terrorists, are merely “nomadic herdsmen” whose grazing areas are being destroyed by “global warming.”It’s amazing, isn’t it, how all the myths of the Left seem to swarm like buzzards on a roadside carcass, each providing another excuse for oppressing Christians, the family, unborn children, and, ultimately, freedom itself?But behind the banal barrage, the fact remains: Christians are being slaughtered by…Continue Reading

The Presence Of God And The Latin Mass

June 20, 2022 Frontpage Comments Off on The Presence Of God And The Latin Mass

By DEACON MIKE MANNO Those of you who have followed this column know that about seven months ago I had a stroke. Fortunately, through the mercy of God, I quickly recovered with little or no problems. However, it has affected my sight; I can no longer read well, struggling to make out each word like a first grader following his fingers across the page, and my peripheral vision has been compromised to the point that I still cannot drive.Thus when I am at the altar assisting at Mass, I can no longer proclaim the Gospel, nor can I read the Prayers of the Faithful. The priest will read the Gospel for me and the lector will read the prayers. I…Continue Reading

Caravan… They’re On The Way!

By BARBARA SIMPSON While the Southwest of the United States sweltered in plus-100 degree heat the weekend of June 10 and Americans did all they could to get out of the heat, thousands of people from south of the border are marching north to us – the U.S. — with plans to cross the border and melt into the population of our country.It’s said to be one of — if not “the” — largest such movement of people hoping for illegal entry/amnesty into our country — estimates are from 6,000 to 10,000 people!Officials know about it, but from what I’ve seen in the news, virtually nothing is being done about it. Slow it down? Turn it back? Stop it? Strengthen…Continue Reading

Democrats Want Civil War — But They’ll Blame Republicans

June 18, 2022 Frontpage Comments Off on Democrats Want Civil War — But They’ll Blame Republicans

By CHRISTOPHER MANION Last Saturday, Democratic Cong. Jamaal Bowman of New York predicted trouble if Republicans take over the majority on Capitol Hill in the November midterm elections.“Far-right extremists and white nationalists” have advocated “civil war,” he told MSNBC, and a GOP victory would “embolden” them.Bowman, an ally of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.), warned that they would “impeach President Biden as quickly as possible and they will continue to find ways to impeach him going forward.”In other words, Bowman feared that Republicans would act like Democrats.But the salient — and dangerous — ingredient of his prediction comes in his branding “far-right extremists and white nationalists” as the belligerents in this war.Those very terms — “extremist,” “supremacist” — are central to…Continue Reading
