Deacon Keith Fournier   Today, May 18, we commemorate the Centenary, the 100-year anniversary of the birth of Pope St. John Paul II. I offer this article I wrote years ago when he passed to the Fathers House. I also rededicate myself to doing everything I can to keep his beautiful legacy alive during these difficult years in the Church which he loved and served with such beauty. —– I was not alone on that day. It seemed as though the whole world was joined with me, watching and weeping, as the servant of the servants of God, the polish Pope who began his stunning and historic pontificate as a lion, went home to the Heavenly Father as a lamb.…Continue Reading

The Baptism in the Jordan: The Theophany. Why Was Jesus Baptized?

January 9, 2020 Frontpage, Uncategorized Comments Off on The Baptism in the Jordan: The Theophany. Why Was Jesus Baptized?

By Deacon Keith Fournier   In the Catholic Church we end the Christmas season this Sunday with the Feast of the Lord’s Baptism in the Jordan. Some of the most beautiful readings in the Office of Readings are found in the Liturgy of the Hours, the official prayer of the whole church, on the days between the Feast of the Epiphany and the Baptism of the Lord. The Liturgy of the Hours is also called the Breviary. It is the sort of baseline prayer of all Clergy, Bishops, Priests and deacons, as well as those in the consecrated life. However, since the last great Church Council, Vatican II this official Prayer of the Church is recommended for all Christians –…Continue Reading

January 6, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Planned Parenthood’s latest annual report reveals it aborted 345,672 babies and received just over $616 million from taxpayers during its 2018 to 2019 fiscal year. Planned Parenthood also distributed over 2 million contraceptives during that time, many of which have the potential to act as abortifacients. Planned Parenthood’s main sources of taxpayer money come from Medicaid, Title X (from which Planned Parenthood has since withdrawn in protest of modestly pro-life Trump administration regulations), state family planning slush funds, and sex ed grants. According to a Live Action analysis, Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding has increased by nearly 70 percent since 2008. Its total revenue was over $1.6 billion and its net assets were almost $2 billion. The…Continue Reading

By JOSEPH MATT Into all of the darkness and despair that have overwhelmed the Catholic Church this past month enters a shepherd who stands tall among his peers. His actions and words are representative of a man who stands for what God called him to be — a shepherd. Bishop Robert Morlino issued a letter to the members of his Diocese of Madison, Wis., this past week addressing the latest Church scandal. In his letter the good bishop short-circuits any excuse-ridden happy talk and the tired PR speak, which the lay faithful have become so accustomed to hearing from our hierarchy. Bishop Morlino addresses the current scandal in the Church, pulling no punches as to what the root of the…Continue Reading

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Sunday invited the faithful to listen carefully when God knocks at their door. “Too often – he said – Jesus passes by in our lives, he sends an angel and we are so caught up in our thoughts and concerns we do not even notice”. Speaking to the pilgrims gathered in St. Peter’s Square for the Angelus Prayer, the Pope reflected on the liturgy of the last Sunday of Advent that tells of the  Annunciation of the Archangel Gabriel to Mary and on how she simply, and humbly – with an attitude of total faith in the Lord – said “yes”. She said “I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to…Continue Reading

Pope’s Morning Homily: Pray for Those Suffering Great Tragedy

Cautions Against Overdramatizing Complaints In moments of darkness, our lament becomes a prayer, but we must guard ourselves against overdramatizing our complaints and remember that there are people experiencing “great tragedies” who have good reason to lament, like the Christians driven from their homes for the faith, said Pope Francis Tuesday during Mass at Casa Santa Marta. Reflecting on the First Reading of the day, in which Job curses the day he was born, the Pope noted that his prayer at first appears to us like a curse. Pope Francis recalled how Job was “put to the test”, how he “lost his entire family, everything he possessed”, how he lost his health and “his body had become a plague, a…Continue Reading

2014-04-16 Vatican Radio (Vatican Radio) Pope Francis held his weekly General Audience on Wednesday – the Wednesday of Holy Week or “Spy Wednesday” as it is called in many parts of the English-speaking world. The Gospel reading of the day recounts Judas’ betrayal of Jesus, which sets in motion the events of Christ’s Passion, Death and Resurrection. In his catechetical remarks to pilgrims and tourists gathered in St. Peter’s Square under a brilliant blue April sky, with a crisp spring breeze blowing through the city, Pope Francis spoke of Christ’s free embrace of suffering and death, which he took on for our sake. It was a theme to which he returned in the English-language remarks that were read out following…Continue Reading
