A Beacon Of Light… Thanksgiving

November 17, 2020 Frontpage Comments Off on A Beacon Of Light… Thanksgiving

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.) I remember when I was a child my mother always telling us to mind our P’s and Q’s. The phrase minding your P’s and Q’s is an English-language expression meaning “mind your manners,” “mind your language,” “be on your best behavior,” “watch what you’re doing.”This was especially drilled into us by always saying thank you. As…Continue Reading

Finally, A Stand-Up University President

November 16, 2020 Frontpage Comments Off on Finally, A Stand-Up University President

By DEACON MIKE MANNO, JD Over the past few years, this column has been pretty hard on colleges and universities, their administrators, and even their student governments. And it’s easy to see why. Long before I started this column, we’d all seen what modern academia had done to free thought and the free exchange of ideas.In case after case conservatives and conservative groups, especially religious ones, were being marginalized and pushed off college campuses. In my own state, at the University of Iowa, the university tried to withdraw recognition from a business group of Christian students, Business Leaders in Christ.On other campuses students could only express their views in college-sanctioned “free speech zones,” often only a few square yards and…Continue Reading

Vote Fraud Was Bad . . . Until Dems Decided They Had To Dig Up Anything For A Biden Win

November 15, 2020 Frontpage Comments Off on Vote Fraud Was Bad . . . Until Dems Decided They Had To Dig Up Anything For A Biden Win

By DEXTER DUGGAN What are President Trump’s supporters to do while a highly disputed presidential election is thrashed out?They can’t do what the radicals over on Democrat Joe Biden’s side of the political spectrum did all summer long: riot, loot, burn, even murder to establish their threatening cred while Biden remained silent until he finally got the message that his zipped lips were hurting his election chances.However, Trump fans can’t quietly bow their heads and sit on their hands until experienced Democratic fraudsters announce that the decrepit Delaware bad Catholic is the victor.Massive mail balloting long had been recognized as carrying substantial dangers of fraud — until the Dems decided that anything and everything had to be marshalled to drive…Continue Reading

Shameless!

November 14, 2020 Frontpage Comments Off on Shameless!

By CHRISTOPHER MANION “All hail Catholic Joe Biden, the 46th President of the United States.” On cue, America’s bishops pander once more to their Democrat benefactors.But why the rush? Why jump at the chance to join hands with Planned Parenthood and cheer the “election” of the most pro-abortion presidential ticket in history before even one state certifies its final vote tally?Is it tradition? Well, true enough: The conference’s Deep State has comfortably snoozed in the lap of the Democrat Party for years — for a century, in fact. When the National Catholic Welfare Council — now known as the USCCB — was formed 101 years ago, our bishops were already firmly allied with the progressive Democrats. The support of James Cardinal…Continue Reading

SHAME!

November 13, 2020 Frontpage No Comments

By JOSEPH MATT Quick to join the spectacle of the mainstream media in the welcome lovefest for the alleged new “President-elect” Joe Biden, Archbishop José Gomez of Los Angeles, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, congratulated the projected president-elect, and called for (the usual) dialogue and compromise for the common good. The archbishop went on to say: “We recognize that Joseph R. Biden, Jr., has received enough votes to be elected the 46th President of the United States. We congratulate Mr. Biden and acknowledge that he joins the late President John F. Kennedy as the second United States president to profess the Catholic faith.” What could have been an opportunity for a teachable moment resulted in a scandalous…Continue Reading

Baron Stewart

November 13, 2020 Frontpage Comments Off on Baron Stewart

By JOE SIXPACK Baron Stewart of England was a man whose ability to politically dodge and weave was not uncommon among the aristocracy of his day. He lived through one of the most tumultuous times in British history, when the country couldn’t make up its mind whether to be Catholic or Protestant.Serving under Queen Elizabeth I, who made the execution of Catholic priests her legacy, Baron Stewart apparently maintained a secret adherence to the Catholic faith while publicly embracing the Protestantism of the queen and her father, King Henry VIII. In this foolish attempt to play games with the House of Tudor and God, Baron Stewart secretly kept two Catholic priests in hiding — one in his London palace, the…Continue Reading

Steubenville Institute Director… Looks At How Catechisms Have Been Received At Different Times

November 12, 2020 Frontpage Comments Off on Steubenville Institute Director… Looks At How Catechisms Have Been Received At Different Times

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — The saying that “the blood of martyrs is the seed of the Church” should remind people of those literally willing to give their lives so they could witness to and be united with Christ.That some people were so motivated to offer up a sacrifice of themselves had the effect of building up the Church on Earth by others left behind who were significantly impressed but weren’t called upon for this oblation.Despite all that the world has gone through in 2020 — including the pandemic, economic collapses, urban rioting and looting in some locations, and political turmoil — some countries still aren’t as badly off as others.Communist China and other Marxist redoubts, parts of the Mideast…Continue Reading

A Beacon Of Light… The Three Stages Of The Church

November 11, 2020 Frontpage Comments Off on A Beacon Of Light… The Three Stages Of The 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 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.) On October 31, 2020 the world celebrated the secular holiday that we call Halloween. When I was a child, I never really knew the significance of Halloween, except that it was a day to dress up in funny costumes and get candy. Halloween, however, was the day the evil spirits and demons would wander around, trying…Continue Reading

And The Losers Are . . .

November 9, 2020 Frontpage Comments Off on And The Losers Are . . .

By DEACON MIKE MANNO, JD Well, maybe by the time this is printed we’ll know who has been elected president. But don’t hold your breath; there’s more than counting going on and litigation is sure to follow. But since the presidential winner may not be known by publication, I think it is fair to acknowledge the losers for their contribution to this election mess.My first pick: The Mainstream Media. As a former journalist, beat reporter, and newspaper editor, I am completely embarrassed by the conduct of most of the media during the last few years. They have berated the president, his family, religious conservatives, and much — if not all — of the GOP with the savageness of the Roman…Continue Reading

The Father Of Lies . . . Fails To Deliver On Democrat Party Hopes For 2020 Blue-Wave Election

November 8, 2020 Frontpage Comments Off on The Father Of Lies . . . Fails To Deliver On Democrat Party Hopes For 2020 Blue-Wave Election

By DEXTER DUGGAN When many Americans probably were hoping for a Thanksgiving holiday break from a high-stress year, even if some left-wing pandemic politicians tried to tell them how many bites of turkey they could eat with what members of their family, suddenly it appeared that the results of a presidential election were being manipulated almost right in front of their eyes.After four years of dominant-media and Democrat war against Donald Trump, the immediate post-election results from November 3 showed that Americans had been surrounded by a fog of complete fantasies, but they fought back through the grimy mist.November supposedly would prove that Trump was a detested fraud who would be swept away by a tsunami of blue votes while…Continue Reading
