“Catholic” Left Has Led Pro-Abortion Movement For Decades

January 7, 2023 Frontpage Comments Off on “Catholic” Left Has Led Pro-Abortion Movement For Decades

By CHRISTOPHER MANION Fifty years ago, in response to the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade, a group of radicals founded “Catholics for a Free Choice” in Washington, D.C. It was a fringe group at the time, but the sodomite-lesbian community was already powerful in the nation’s capital, and the two groups shared the fundamental principles of narcissism, rebellion, destruction of the family, and the annihilation of the Catholic Church, all of them propelled by the Sexual Revolution.The “pro-choice” movement had grown steadily among Catholics by September 1984, when New York Gov. Mario Cuomo showed up at Notre Dame to give it his imprimatur. There, Cuomo concocted a facile slogan for a movement that was already moving at the…Continue Reading

How Do We Get Our Nation Back on Track?

January 6, 2023 Frontpage Comments Off on How Do We Get Our Nation Back on Track?

By STAR PARKER Some thoughts about our country as Christmas and the new year approach.In his Farewell Address to the nation in 1796, America’s departing first president, George Washington, observed: “It is substantially true that virtue or morality is a necessary spring to popular government.”And what is the basis upon which we define morality?Washington answers, “reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.”Per our first president, for a democracy to function properly, it must be guided by moral principles. And the guidelines and rules by which we define what is moral are framed by principles of the Bible.This is not exactly what we have going on today.Rather than our democracy…Continue Reading

The Te Deum of New Year’s Eve

January 5, 2023 Frontpage Comments Off on The Te Deum of New Year’s Eve

James Monti As many of our readers know, the final day of the calendar year has traditionally been marked by the solemn singing of the Church’s ancient hymn of thanksgiving, the Te Deum. The full story of precisely how this particular use of the Te Deum arose and spread has yet to be written. To date, as best as I can tell, there has not been any comprehensive study of this interesting subject. What we can do is piece together at least a partial picture of the history of the New Year’s Eve Te Deum.The Te Deum is generally believed to have been authored by St. Nicetas of Remesiana (335-415). There was an earlier time when the hymn was thought…Continue Reading

Looking Back Or Forward?

January 4, 2023 Frontpage Comments Off on Looking Back Or Forward?

By DEACON MIKE MANNO The beginning of a New Year is most often thought of as a time to look forward, make resolutions, and imagine a future sans the troubles of the past. I want to take a different tack and look back a bit, so if you will indulge me, let’s step on board the Wayback Machine with Mr. Peabody and Sherman and visit the early days of our Republic when a man named John Adams was the first president to sit in the White House — or as it was known then, the Executive Mansion.Mr. Adams belonged to the Federalist Party which, for the time involved here, also controlled the Congress. The opposition party, the Republicans, the forerunner…Continue Reading

New Year, New Opportunity To Act… Time To Carve Different Course After Betrayals By Establishment

January 3, 2023 Frontpage Comments Off on New Year, New Opportunity To Act… Time To Carve Different Course After Betrayals By Establishment

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — “Suckers!”That might have been the contemptuous salute from the ruling U.S. establishment toward the too-compliant people it governs as 2022 passed into the history books.Independent and conservative voters across the nation were sneered at and connived against, from Washington, D.C., where Sen. Mitch McConnell’s Republican minority shrugged them off during the lame-duck session, to Arizona, where a rigged voting system struggled to avoid being exposed to the public.After literally decades of conservative activists working their hearts out to attain a Republican majority, GOP Minority Leader McConnell (R., Ky.) demonstrated that when much of his Senate team unites with Democrats to squelch conservatives, the upper chamber still is about two-thirds in the pocket of left-wingers —…Continue Reading

A Beacon Of Light… Begin The New Year With The Lord

January 2, 2023 Frontpage Comments Off on A Beacon Of Light… Begin The New Year With The Lord

By FR. RICHARD D. BRETON JR. Happy New Year! As 2022 fades into the distant past and 2023 makes itself known, we find ourselves in the midst of the first few days of the New Year. We are still in the midst of the Christmas Season when we celebrate the Incarnation, that moment when Christ the Light dispelled the darkness of night. We celebrated the Solemnity of Mary, the Mother of God on January 1, and commonly, this is the time when we embark on the custom of making those “new year’s resolutions” that are supposed to carry us through the year ahead.Sometimes we succeed in fulfilling these, but most often we stumble and fall. Why does this happen, you…Continue Reading

Patriotism Is Not Enough

January 1, 2023 Frontpage Comments Off on Patriotism Is Not Enough

By DONALD DeMARCO A music lover responds to the beauty of music. He is not concerned about the nationality of the composer. It is the beauty that is first and foremost. Politics does not enter the picture. Likewise, a nurse responds to that which is first and foremost in her patient, namely, his need for care. Again, politics has nothing to do with a nurse’s response to her patient’s need.Edith Cavell was a nurse who attended the needs of her patients without regard for their nationality. During World War I she dared to treat soldiers who were German, English, French, and Belgian. She was also involved, along with a network of assistants, in smuggling Allied soldiers through an underground tunnel…Continue Reading

Veteran Pro-Life Warrior Laicized . . . To Whom Does Baby-Saving Frank Pavone Owe His First Loyalty?

December 31, 2022 Frontpage Comments Off on Veteran Pro-Life Warrior Laicized . . . To Whom Does Baby-Saving Frank Pavone Owe His First Loyalty?

By DEXTER DUGGAN The surprise laicization of longtime pro-life leader Fr. Frank Pavone may have more of a negative impact on the Vatican authorities who returned him to the lay state than on Pavone himself, who continues as national director of the Florida-based Priests for Life (priestsforlife.org), but without a Roman collar.Pavone recently responded to a number of questions by The Wanderer, as reported later in this article.The necessity of owing obedience to his bishop could be the core of the issue. Pavone’s view is that he has a priestly vocation specifically to the pro-life cause, not simply the priesthood, and it is up to a bishop to accommodate that.His troubles began early in this century when the archbishop of…Continue Reading

A Beacon Of Light… Christmas, A Time Of Great Joy!

December 26, 2022 Frontpage Comments Off on A Beacon Of Light… Christmas, A Time Of Great Joy!

By FR. RICHARD D. BRETON JR. (Editor’s Note: Fr. Richard D. Breton Jr. is a priest of the Diocese of Norwich, Conn.) + + “And there were in the same country shepherds watching and keeping the night watches over their flock. And behold an angel of the Lord stood by them, and the brightness of God shone round about them; and they feared with a great fear. And the angel said to them: Fear not; for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, that shall be to all the people: For, this day, is born to you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord, in the city of David. And this shall be a sign unto you. You…Continue Reading

When It’s Time To Shovel Votes . . . There’s Plenty Of Room For Them At This Inn

December 25, 2022 Frontpage Comments Off on When It’s Time To Shovel Votes . . . There’s Plenty Of Room For Them At This Inn

By DEXTER DUGGAN Mary looked out from the stable. She was shocked that a blizzard was engulfing Bethlehem.“Come here quickly, Joseph,” she said. “We’re apparently being buried in a snowstorm. It gets chilly here in the winter, but not like this.”Joseph joined her, concerned that their Child might become isolated in such bad weather when He might need extra warmth or his parents need food.He stepped outside and was nearly blinded in an ocean of white. The substance already was up to his knees, but it wasn’t making his legs colder. This was strange.“Hey, buddy, glad to see ya,” said a voice coming down the road. “I was just about to knock on your doorpost. You are one very special…Continue Reading
