Have we had Enough?
By Fr. Daniel E. Doctor:
Speaking out of turn. We all do it. Remember when the Spirit of God came down on certain individual Israelites that were chosen to help Moses lead the people.
One of Moses’ aids, Joshua is amazed by all of this and speaks out of turn saying that it was an insult to Moses that others now have the Spirit of God like he does – But Moses responds; “Are you jealous for my sake? Would that all the people of the Lord were prophets! Would that the Lord might bestow His Spirit on them all!”
These prophetic words of Moses have come true in our day and time for God has bestowed His Spirit on us by the power of the Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation. We, the baptized and confirmed, are now God’s prophets in this world and in this age. All of us are prophets of the Good News of salvation.

Earlier today, His Eminence Robert Cardinal Sarah, Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, gave the following address to the clergy of the Archdiocese of Colombo, Sri Lanka, on “Liturgical Life and the Priesthood.” In it, he offers a beautiful series of reflections on the liturgical formation of the clergy, and their duty to impart both knowledge and love for the Church’s prayer to the faithful. We are honored and very grateful to His Eminence for sharing this talk exclusively with New Liturgical Movement.

What do St. Padre Pio, St. Francis Xavier Cabrini, St. Gemma Galgani, St. Maximilian Kolbe, St. Leopold Mandic, St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, St. Jose Maria Escrivà, Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, Servant of God, John Paul II, and Sr. Lucia of Fatima all have in common (beyond their eminent sanctity as witnessed by the twentieth century)? They all repeatedly invoked Our Lady as the “Co-redemptrix” and taught the doctrine of Marian coredemption concerning Mary’s unparalleled role with and under Jesus Christ in the Redemption of the human family.

They were both scholars of the thought of Karol Wojtyla. But now they are in favor of communion for the divorced and remarried. The former garners the applause of Archbishop Cupich. And the latter duels with his Polish friend

An article by Hillary Clinton in a local Utah newspaper in which she promotes herself as a defender of religious freedom has provoked criticism from Catholics and senior academics in the US.
Thomas Farr, director of the Religious Freedom Project at the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs told CNS: “Anyone who believes that a President Hillary Clinton will support the religious freedom of Catholic elementary and high schools, colleges, refugee services, adoption agencies, homes for the aged poor, or any other private organization, is making a mistake…Her own words suggest that even churches will not evade her understanding of the kind of ‘compelling government interest’ that she considers abortion and same-sex marriage to be.”
Meanwhile, Brian Burch, president of CatholicVote.org, claimed that Clinton “favours extremist policies that would punish charities like the Little Sisters of the Poor along with thousands of similar Catholic-inspired charities.”

You who read these wonderings: please pray for priests, because we who have received much will also have much for which to account.
Please pray for priests. [And deacons too!] Much has been given to us and thus much is rightly expected from us. Pray, pray, pray!

A Catholic Priest Tells Christians to Stop Being So Naïve — Wake up to the Threat of Islamic Domination
In Islam, peace does not mean co-existence; it means the West’s submission.
Father George Rutler is sounding the wake-up call to Christians and Western civilization to the threat of Islamic domination. We must respond to terrorist attacks with more than the balloons and flowers of the grieving.
Citing the Catechism of the Catholic Church (#2265), he writes that defending against the evil of Islam is not only a right but a Christian duty. He cites several instances throughout history when saints and soldiers rode into battle to successfully defend their nations against the Islamic hordes, thus saving Western civilization.
According to Father Rutler, the danger today, however, is that Western civilization “has grown flaccid in virtue and ignorant of its own moral foundations.”
Father Rutler’s commentary, reproduced in its entirety below, is worth reading to understand the threat posed by Islam devoid of political correctness.
