Finding The Threshold Of Heaven On Earth

February 10, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Finding The Threshold Of Heaven On Earth

By JAMES MONTI In the Book of Genesis we read that when the patriarch Jacob paused to rest for the night at the place that would come to be called Bethel, he experienced a remarkable dream: “And he dreamed that there was a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven; and behold, the angels of God were ascending and descending on it! And behold, the Lord stood above it” (Gen. 28:12-13). Jacob’s reaction to this vision is quite telling: “Surely the Lord is in this place. . . . How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven” (Gen. 28:16-17).Jacob’s dream…Continue Reading

A Beacon Of Light . . . Approaching The Holy Season Of Lent

February 9, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on A Beacon Of Light . . . Approaching The Holy Season Of Lent

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.) + + It is hard to believe that February is already upon us. It is even harder to believe how close to the Lenten Season we are. This Holy Season of Lent is preceded by the celebration of “carnival” more commonly known as Mardi gras. The Carnival of Mardi Gras usually begins after the Epiphany and ends the night before Ash Wednesday, called Mardi gras, or Fat Tuesday. Currently, many people around the world are celebrating…Continue Reading

Election Redux

February 8, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Election Redux

By DEACON MIKE MANNO The fight over election laws, expanded mail-in voting, verification requirements — and several other issues that caused a nationwide debate during the 2020 election — is being fought in two venues which could produce contradictory results.In the East Coast corner, representing the Democrats, the House is now considering HR 1, a proposed law entitled “For the People Act of 2021” which, if passed, would effectively legalize many of the controversial “emergency rules” which opponents claim stole last year’s election from President Trump.In the West Coast corner, representing the “Stop the Steal” crowd, is a coalition of conservative groups who are in federal court in California seeking a declaratory judgment that many of the state’s election rules…Continue Reading

Victory Over Evil Already Won . . .  But God’s Not Handing Out The Trophy Yet

February 7, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Victory Over Evil Already Won . . .  But God’s Not Handing Out The Trophy Yet

By DEXTER DUGGAN Achievement doesn’t start by sleeping under the goal posts, or walking the distance of one foot to reach home plate. What’s the point of competition if there basically is none? You’re not fulfilled by coming up empty. Sports celebrity Tim Tebow grew up knowing that.A video shows Tebow, also an impressive Christian philanthropist, recounting that God told his surprised parents to add a fifth baby to their family, which turned out to be him. Tebow said this was a difficult pregnancy for his mother, and he was expected to be stillborn. Doctors recommended an abortion, but his parents said no.Their lives eventually worked out well. However, think of what the world would lack if he weren’t around to…Continue Reading

Welcome To Washington’s BMZ

February 6, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Welcome To Washington’s BMZ

By CHRISTOPHER MANION Capitol Hill, known collectively as “the People’s House,” is now surrounded by a twelve-foot-high stockade topped with rolled barbed wire. Military veterans liken it to the fortifications surrounding Baghdad’s “Green Zone.” That’s the “International Zone” that houses the Iraqi government and the U.S. Embassy in Iraq, which is still the target of frequent terrorist missile attacks.The original purpose of the stockade was to “Protect the Capitol” during the inauguration on January 20. Of course, nobody was going to show up, but so what? Its purpose is more abiding. It symbolizes the designs of the Democrat regime that now rules the White House and Capitol Hill.As the seven-foot fence (now doubled in height to twelve feet plus two…Continue Reading

Lazarus

February 5, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Lazarus

By JOE SIXPACK Of all Jesus’ parables, only one tells the name of any character. The parable I’m talking about is the one we call “Lazarus and Dives” or “Lazarus and the Rich Man” (Luke 16:19-31). This is the story Jesus told of a beggar who was afflicted with horrible open sores. He lay outside the rich man’s gate, wanting only to be fed from the waste that fell from the rich man’s table, but the rich man ignored him. According to Jesus’ story, Lazarus died and was carried by the angels to “Abraham’s bosom.” The rich man also died and was buried.Due to the way the rich man had lived in his lack of charity, he was punished with…Continue Reading

Questions Of Time And Eternity

February 4, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Questions Of Time And Eternity

By JOHN YOUNG Problems are clarified by making the right distinctions. This can be particularly important when we are discussing divine things and God’s Revelation to the human race. I’ll just take five questions here, and seek to clarify the issues by making necessary distinctions. Let’s start with this question: Are God, Jesus, And Mary Saddened By Sin? We might recall apparitions in which the Blessed Virgin looked sorrowful or shed tears as she spoke of the offenses committed against her Divine Son. And we speak of sin as an offense against God; but if He is offended doesn’t this imply sorrow on His part?Well, we can dismiss the idea that the Divine Nature of God suffers or is changed…Continue Reading

Biden “Enemy Of Catholic Faith”… Remember Crime Families Who Entertained Us With Duplicity?

February 3, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Biden “Enemy Of Catholic Faith”… Remember Crime Families Who Entertained Us With Duplicity?

By DEXTER DUGGAN The Biden family is being held up for admiration by partisan media as faithful churchgoing Catholics setting an example. Why, senescent Joe Biden can receive the Holy Eucharist on the weekend then promote massive tax-paid abortion, enforced transgenderism, and naked men in women’s lavatories back in the Oval Office.How nice for this rosary-praying family man to go to Mass along with son and shakedown artist Hunter, hungry for bagels following church, after bringing home some foreign dough for Dad, “the Big Guy,” scandalous illegality that dominant media had refused to acknowledge.Doubters can look at the image-rich Bidens in the pews and recall another crime family, the Corleones, from the Godfather movies that began their release in the…Continue Reading

A Beacon Of Light… A Mob Of False Truths

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.) + + “Then Pilate said to Jesus, ‘So you are a king, are you?’ Jesus answered, ‘You say that I am a king. For this I was born, and for this I have come into the world, to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.’ Pilate said to him, ‘What is truth?’ After saying this, he went back out to the Jews and told them, ‘I find no…Continue Reading

Are Democrats Really Trying To Scuttle The Church?

February 1, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Are Democrats Really Trying To Scuttle The Church?

By DEACON MIKE MANNO Several times in this column, I’ve mentioned my earlier allegiance to the Democratic Party. I attended conventions, held party office, and was elected as a Democrat to public office. I was as partisan as they come and have the newspaper clippings to prove it.I came of political age while in grade school. My dad one day pointed to a football game on TV (it was all black and white then) and told me that a senator I had never heard of, by the name of Kennedy, was at the game. In response to my question, he told me that the senator was a Catholic and was going to run for president.That’s when I first fell in…Continue Reading
