America’s outrageous act against human life and dignity!

Central America is bordered in the north by Mexico where increased caution for travel is advised, to the south is Colombia which warns travellers to exercise Increased Caution. That leaves the people escaping their pure fear with either the Pacific Ocean to the West or the Caribbean Sea to the East. There are no alternatives for escaping danger.

A lesson on women ordination to the presbyterate by one who was there in 1998.

There is only one word for women ordination, and that is: Heterodoxy!

Sicily a veritable land of Martyrs, Saints and Blesseds

The writer, the poet or the artist who educates the imagination and comforts the souls of his fellow man deserves every praise; even more so the Saint, who possesses the secret of reassuring consciences and minds, of softening suffering with love, or by inspiring others in everyday life to faith in our Heavenly Father.

The importance of bread

It is the view that the meaning is "that when we share our house and table with others, we should give them the entire loaf, even if we go hungry as a result, because by dividing the loaf, neither we nor our guests will have enough, but by giving all to our guests we can at least insure that their needs are satisfied.


BOOK REVIEW: “HOW THE ANCIENT ROMAN RITE HAS CHANGED” BY REV. P. PIETRO LEONE

The latest book by The Reverend Father Don Pietro Leone, academic, Lecturer in Doctrine and Traditional Ritual, is directed at Pope Francis, although the topic is not dear to the heart of the recipient: Mass in Vetus Ordo. The author of Come è Cambiato il Rito Romano Antico, published by Solfanelli, has set himself the objective of evaluating the two rites, the new and the ancient in a scientific manner, by comparing them in light of their respective sacramental theologies.

THE SOLEMNITY OF CORPUS CHRISTI

Out of the numerous types in the Old Law which foretold the Holy Eucharist, two in particular are pointed out to us, because they are mentioned, one at the time when Christ promised to give His Body and Blood as food, the other at the time when He actually made the gift.  At the time of the promise Christ mentioned the manna, at the time of the fulfilment He celebrated the supper of the Paschal Lamb.

Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity – The Honour due from Priests to the Holy Trinity.

“Going therefore, teach ye all nations, baptising them in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost teaching them to observe all things, whatsoever I have commanded you,” St. Matt, xxviii. 19.

THE DAY OF PENTECOST

Meanwhile, a large crowd of Jews has collected round the mysterious Cenacle. Not only has the mighty wind excited their curiosity, but, moreover, that same divine Spirit, Who is working such wonders upon the holy assembly within, is impelling them to visit the House, wherein is the new-born Church of Christ. They clamour for the Apostles, and these are burning with zeal to begin their work: so, too, are all. At once, then, the crowd sees these men standing in its midst, and relating the prodigy that has been wrought by the God of Israel.

THE ASCENSION OF JESUS. THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW!

The ascension which we celebrate on May 12 this year, calculates as forty days after Easter and concludes the visible permanence of God amongst men.  It is a prelude to Pentecost and marks the beginning of the Church's history.  This episode in history is described by the Gospels of S. Mark and S. Luke and in the Acts of the  Apostles.  Until 1977 in Italy it was also a public holiday.
