From Illegal Entry To Desecration . . . Aisles, Screens, Cameras, Oscars, And Abortion Part Of Daily Grind

May 2, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on From Illegal Entry To Desecration . . . Aisles, Screens, Cameras, Oscars, And Abortion Part Of Daily Grind

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — A large supermarket offers a variety of goods under one roof unthinkable to a consumer of just a century ago. But even its 30 aisles don’t allow it the space to sell only different kinds of chocolate tapioca pudding on one entire aisle, competing brands of Texas barbecue sauces up and down another whole aisle, shrimp from various oceans but nothing else on a third aisle, and so on.However, hyper-specialization is available in a different realm, in that unlimited world of choices of information and entertainment on the Internet.Back in the late 1980s you might have been able to buy pounds of newspapers and magazines at the newsstand, stagger home with them and stay up…Continue Reading

Biden Praises Big Government, Wants More

May 1, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Biden Praises Big Government, Wants More

By CHRISTOPHER MANION “The worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.”Pearl Harbor? 9/11?No, the melee at the Capitol on January sixth.Or so brayed Joe Biden in his speech to Congress on Wednesday, April 28.It went downhill from there. “America is rising anew,” he said.No, not America. The government. An extra six trillion dollars’ worth.Whoever Joe Biden is working for, it isn’t the American people. This year will bring “the fastest pace of economic growth in this country in nearly four decades.” Joe takes the credit, ignoring how the best economic growth in history under Trump was trashed by lockdowns that destroyed millions of jobs and thousands of businesses nationwide.But Joe will create a million new government jobs, just…Continue Reading

Mother Knows Best

April 30, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Mother Knows Best

By JOE SIXPACK Uncle Bill came to supper one evening and found out that his little nephew Michael was saving up to buy a dog.“Great!” said Uncle Bill, who was quite a joker. “Look, here are two bills! You can choose which one you like best to help your doggie fund.”Uncle Bill had placed a crisp, new one dollar bill on the table, and an old and worn ten dollar bill next to it.Michael was too young to know the value of paper money, but he knew some counted for more than others. He much preferred the crisp new dollar bill, but he didn’t want to make a mistake. He looked at both carefully. Then he finally turned to his…Continue Reading

Just As Ancestors Laid Way For Us . . . What We Do Against Oppression Today Will Stretch Into Future

April 29, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Just As Ancestors Laid Way For Us . . . What We Do Against Oppression Today Will Stretch Into Future

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — Praying the Fourth Joyful Mystery as I recited the rosary, it occurred to me that a person you encounter today may be the Jewish descendant of a baby presented in the Temple in Jerusalem, as Jesus was according to the law of Moses, about 2,000 years ago. Or the descendant of a Christian baby baptized in Jerusalem in the early days of the Church.Daily life has wonders that often don’t even occur to us. And acts we perform now could echo 2,000 years from today, just as decisions made as the Roman Empire collapsed from degeneracy have consequences for us centuries later. Caesar didn’t endure, but those he persecuted did. Anyone can convert from having…Continue Reading

But Will They Listen?. . . Bishops Receive Good Advice From A Fellow CEO

April 28, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on But Will They Listen?. . . Bishops Receive Good Advice From A Fellow CEO

By CHRISTOPHER MANION Last week, The Wall Street Journal published a strong corrective to the Catholic bishops of the United States, focusing on their annoying habit of constantly weighing in on prudential political issues while ignoring their consecrated duties.Of course, the article didn’t mention Catholic bishops by name. It was written by former American Express Chairman Harvey Golub and addressed to his fellow CEOs.And that includes our beloved shepherds.Golub was addressing the recent rash of corporate bigwigs who had jumped on the bandwagon objecting to Georgia’s new voting law. Many did so before they discovered — if they bothered to discover it at all — that the law is less strict than that of New York, where many of their…Continue Reading

A Beacon Of Light . . . St. Peter And The Early Church

April 27, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on A Beacon Of Light . . . St. Peter And The Early Church

By FR. RICHARD D. BRETON JR. (Editor’s Note: Fr. Richard D. Breton Jr. is a priest of the Diocese of Norwich, Conn. He received his BA in religious studies and his MA in dogmatic theology from Holy Apostles College and Seminary in Cromwell, Conn.) + + The Easter Season is a time filled with so many opportunities to grow in the knowledge of the faith. One of the ways we can do this is by recognizing the important role people played in the Early Church. Understanding the role these people played in the formation of the Church assists us in recognizing the responsibility we have today in living the faith. Over the next few weeks, we will take a look…Continue Reading

The Long Knives Are Coming Out

April 26, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on The Long Knives Are Coming Out

By DEACON MIKE MANNO I think we’ve probably known all along that in the current state of things our religious liberty would be under attack. I’ve written about those things and my radio program has highlighted many more. Until recently, however, the attacks have been somewhat muted, limited to isolated instances, and, at least to the general public, not very brazen.But with a new political magisterium of faux Christianity, faux patriotism, faux liberty, along with the growing acceptance of a cancel culture, the New Left has ratcheted up the ante and no longer tries to conceal its vulgar attacks on Catholicism, people of faith, and conservative Christians.So while the Equality Act, endorsed by the president and the majority party leaders…Continue Reading

The Battle Against Life Goes On

April 24, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on The Battle Against Life Goes On

By CHRISTOPHER MANION In recent weeks we’ve heard arguments surrounding the use of vaccines derived from tissues of aborted babies. Well, last week a new dimension was added to the conversation when Judicial Watch revealed that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had spent tens of thousands of U.S. taxpayer dollars to buy “human fetal tissue” for use in “scientific” experiments.We know that Planned Parenthood has been accused of trafficking in the remains of unborn children, but now it appears that the U.S. government is paying for it. That doesn’t seem to bother the administration of “Catholic Joe” Biden. In fact, Joe’s going to make sure the FDA has a steady supply. Last Thursday, April 15, his Department of Health…Continue Reading

The Great Promise

April 23, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on The Great Promise

By JOE SIXPACK St. Margaret Mary Alacoque was born in 1647 in France. It is Margaret Mary who was responsible for spreading devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. From a very early age, Margaret Mary wanted nothing more than to give her life to the service of God, so she entered the convent of the Visitation Sisters. This is where her love for the Blessed Sacrament became so strong she could only tear herself away from the Divine Presence with the greatest difficulty.She used to tell Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament that she wanted to be consumed with love for Him the way a candle is consumed by fire.Once while she was deep in prayer before the tabernacle,…Continue Reading

Neither Left Nor Right, But Catholic . . . The Left’s Attack On Its Longtime Ally, The Supreme Court

April 22, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Neither Left Nor Right, But Catholic . . . The Left’s Attack On Its Longtime Ally, The Supreme Court

By STEPHEN M. KRASON Joe Biden has established — by means of executive order, as usual — a commission to study “reforming” the Supreme Court. Interestingly, there hasn’t been any request coming from the third branch itself — from the current justices — or even a major push from the legal community to do this. It’s supposed to be a bipartisan commission, but one can be sure it will be dominated by leftist legal scholars with the Republican partisans who will be selected likely being pseudo-moderates who will be ready to go along.At best, there might be a token genuine constitutionalist or two on the commission who will have little influence on its proceedings and conclusions. Nor should one believe…Continue Reading
