This week we will focus on the Sacrament of Penance.After the fall of Adam, humanity would be forever tarnished…Continue Reading

ACLU, Dem AGs… Try To Force Catholic Medics To Sin

August 3, 2020 Frontpage Comments Off on ACLU, Dem AGs… Try To Force Catholic Medics To Sin

By DEACON MIKE MANNO, JD Of all the outrages being committed by the progressive left these days, few would compare with the attempts by a coalition of Democratic state attorneys general and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) to force Catholic hospitals and health-care workers to perform elective hysterectomies for women seeking to “transition” to men, to perform “trans” surgeries, and to require all to perform abortions.The party of death and its secular arm, the ACLU, have filed two federal lawsuits to strip away from Catholic hospitals and medical personnel their right to decline to perform certain medical procedures as a matter of faith or conscience.“The last thing anyone should want right now is fewer hospitals. And yet, that may…Continue Reading

August 2, 2020 Frontpage Comments Off on Dems’ Pounding Of Attorney General . . . If They Do This To Barr Now, What’ll They Do To You Under Joe?

By DEXTER DUGGAN Having viewed the abhorrent, junta-like inquisition that the Democratic Party majority’s members in the U.S. House employed at a so-called “hearing” to stomp on Attorney General William Barr, imagine the political terror if Democrats also controlled the Senate and White House.Elections have consequences, and this November’s results should be huge.The New York Post reported on July 28, “Atty. Gen. William Barr . . . defended the use of federal agents in Portland amid an onslaught of diatribes from Democratic lawmakers who accused him of using troops as a ‘prop’ in President Trump’s re-election bid.”Fox News reported that conservative commentator Ben Shapiro said the ultimate target of the Democratic politicians is Trump’s own supporters because “the fact that…Continue Reading

Violence, Falsehood, And The Forbidden Question

August 1, 2020 Frontpage Comments Off on Violence, Falsehood, And The Forbidden Question

By CHRISTOPHER MANION In surveying the recent violence, injuries, and property damage caused by rioters in Seattle, Portland, and other cities governed by Democrats, memories come to mind of political gatherings in Washington over the years. In January 2009, for instance, when those celebrating Obama’s inauguration finally left town, the Daily Caller reported that government workers had to remove 130 tons of trash from the National Mall. The same was true during the 2011 “Occupation” march on Washington, as well as the “Women’s March” and subsequent Black Lives Matter demonstrations.They all left tons of trash; the Black Lives Matter demonstrations and subsequent riots left significant property damage as well.In contrast, after demonstrations in Washington by groups like the Tea Party…Continue Reading

Biden Would Emulate Henry VIII

July 31, 2020 Frontpage Comments Off on Biden Would Emulate Henry VIII

By TERENCE P. JEFFREY Joe Biden and Henry VIII have something in common.They both decided to use the power of government to force individuals to act against their consciences on matters of profound consequence.But Henry VIII renounced his Catholic faith.Biden currently declares, “I’m a practicing Catholic.”In 1534, the English parliament declared the king “supreme head of the Church of England,” separating their new church from the Roman Catholic Church. Henry VIII then required prominent Englishmen to take an oath recognizing him as the final authority over the church.This oath said in part: “I do utterly testifie and declare in my Conscience, that the Kings Highnesse is the onely Supreame Governour of this Realme…in all Spirituall or Ecclesiasticall things or causes,…Continue Reading

How Can This Help Biden?. . . Dem Officials Place Their Hopes In Rioters To Restructure Society

July 30, 2020 Frontpage Comments Off on How Can This Help Biden?. . . Dem Officials Place Their Hopes In Rioters To Restructure Society

By DEXTER DUGGAN Imagine, just wildly imagine, that Donald Trump said it wasn’t a big deal if his supporters tried to destroy the headquarters of the American Civil Liberties Union, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the New York Times building, and the New York State Democratic Party offices in his birth city of New York.After all, let’s imagine Trump said, these properties occupy just a very few blocks in a metropolitan area of nearly 3,500 square miles.Even Trump’s strongest backers readily would concede that if the president had made such an inexplicable assertion, he’d be having even worse than a Joe Biden-type moment of dementia.Yet that was the type of journalistic excuse seriously put forward to brush off weeks…Continue Reading

Accounting To St. Peter

July 29, 2020 Frontpage Comments Off on Accounting To St. Peter

BY JOE SIXPACK Our opening story may be a little politically incorrect (not that a lack of political correctness has ever stopped or even really mattered to me), but it’s a wonderful story to highlight the topic of this week’s article.Back in the days when Canada was being settled like the American frontier, a Catholic Indian made his Confession to the Black Robe (Jesuit missionary) who ministered to the tribe. The Indian, named John Baptist at his Baptism, accused himself of stealing two dollars from a wealthy man who had no religion. The priest told John he had to make restitution, so John set out immediately return the money.John approached the rich man at his home. He said, “Me rob…Continue Reading

A Beacon Of Light… The Eucharist: Christ Himself

July 28, 2020 Frontpage Comments Off on A Beacon Of Light… The Eucharist: Christ Himself

By FR. RICHARD D. BRETON JR. (Editor’s Note: Fr. Richard D. Breton Jr. is a priest of the Diocese of Norwich, Conn. He is currently the parochial vicar of St. Andrew Parish in Colchester and St. Francis of Assisi Parish in Lebanon. He received his BA in religious studies and his MA in dogmatic theology from Holy Apostles College and Seminary in Cromwell, Conn.) The third Sacrament of Initiation is the Eucharist. The Eucharist is the greatest of all sacraments. For in receiving the Eucharist we receive Christ Himself. The Catechism of the Catholic Church reminds us: “The Eucharist is “the source and summit of the Christian life….The other sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministries and works of the apostolate,…Continue Reading

I Cancel You!

July 27, 2020 Frontpage Comments Off on I Cancel You!

By DEACON MIKE MANNO, JD “Listen up, peon, by now you must understand that my intelligence, education, and exalted place in society are such that I am to be believed and I will not tolerate any defiance. You conform or you will be canceled.”So issue the threats from The Woke among us. You see, the modern leftists are so secure in their feeble knowledge of history, science, the arts, politics, and nearly everything else, that to express any type of disagreement should render that societal heretic invisible. In other words, he should be canceled. And it doesn’t matter if the offense is being committed by a thing and not a person — just remove the thing, it is no longer…Continue Reading
