Here’s What the Catholic Church REALLY Teaches About Capital Punishment

Father X shares the traditional doctrine:

“Let God arise and let His enemies be scattered. Let them that hate Him flee from before His face,” words taken from the Introit for this eleventh Sunday after Pentecost. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, Amen.

The great South American Jesuit missionary, Saint Peter Claver (he died in 1654)- he often spent some five consecutive hours in prayer before going out to fulfill his duties. His basic schedule, for something like forty-five years of his life, ran like this: As night fell, he slept for a short while, often three hours or so. Then from midnight to 1:00 he got up to enjoy, so he said, “the silence and peace which God granted him when all slept”.

Then either kneeling or prostrate on the ground, often with the symbols of the Passion on him- like the crown of thorns or a rope around his neck or crucifix in hand- he prayed until 6:00 in the morning. Then he went out to work.

Not surprising, like many of the saints, he had a special gift for bringing souls to God- especially those who seemed farthest away. Among them were those condemned to death by the state; those under the death penalty, the capital punishment. They became his friends, and the officials always called him in shortly before their execution. He would hear their confessions and offer Mass for them in prison.

Predictions for 2018, Impeachment, Pardons and More

We still have two months to the elections, and I’ll stick by my prediction from six months ago that Republicans lose 20 seats, but if they do lose >24, impeachment is now guaranteed in the House. (Thank God for the Senate). The impeachment will work in Trump’s favor through 2020, and if he keeps us out of neo-con wars and the economy does not collapse, he’ll win re-election and the GOP will retake the House.

P.S. I’m also willing to predict Manafort’s sentence is commuted after the mid-terms

Probably the Worst Pope In….Forever

The Pope’s most recent scandal brought out all of the usual suspects as defenders, viz., the neo-Catholics, neo-ultramontanists and Ostrich-Catholics. I warned them that their eager toleration of error and active participation in the conspiracy would come back to bite them. Who could have anticipated this little gem from the Pope’s good friend in Canada:

“Pope Francis breaks Catholic traditions whenever he wants, because he is “free from disordered attachments.” Our Church has indeed entered a new phase: with the advent of this first Jesuit pope, it is openly ruled by an individual rather than by the authority of Scripture alone or even its own dictates of tradition plus Scripture.” Father Rosica, speaking of the Pope’s unlimited power

By disordered attachments, he means of course, the Catholic faith, as taught by all of his predecessors and all the ecumenical councils. The Vatican is rushing to remove the quote from all the online sources, which of course is not only laughable but only proves that someone in the curia is aware that these things are not supposed to be said in public.

I Still Can’t Believe I’ve Never Been to (Facebook) Jail

NC17 warning (this may be the post that gets me into FB jail after four years of tempting them daily).

Don’t scroll down unless you are an adult comfortable and mature enough to deal with references to the female body -found here on Facebook, BTW. To my sons, that means: this is not for you.

I just saw a video on FB showing a cult of Feminazis who host “Vagina Watching Workshops” (actually I think they mean genital-watching workshops, since little to none of the vagina was visible). The women view themselves with mirrors and cameras, other women gaze into their labia and clitoris, and then they create plaster casts of their…inner thighs and external genitalia.

Now, let’s face it, they’re all more or less alike. Like people, they come in different shapes, sizes, colors and…well, you get the point. So why the obsession with them?

Yeah…so I’m not going to say anything more about women at this moment, although a great deal *could* be said. Here’s the REAL reason for this post:

Why is Alex Jones too dangerous for FB but these Feminazis and their genitalia are fine? (No, don’t ask me for a link to the video. It showed up on my timeline b/c I’ve been invited, but not accepted, an invitation to join a certain group of Meninists here on FB).
