Viva Cristo Rey! Remembering Blessed Miguel Pro, S.J. on his Feast Day

Salt and Light TV:

As we near the end of the liturgical year and celebrate the Solemnity of Christ the King, let us remember the life of a young martyred Mexican Jesuit who was deeply devoted to Christ the King: Blessed Miguel Agustin Pro, S.J. (1891-1927). Today, November 23 is his feast day. Born January 13, 1891, at Guadalupe Zacatecas, Mexico, Miguel “Miguelito” Pro was the son of a mining engineer and a pious and charitable mother. From his earliest days, Miguel had a special affinity for the working classes which he kept all of his life. At age 20, he entered the Jesuit novitiate and shortly thereafter was exiled because of the Mexican revolution. He traveled to the United States, Spain, Nicaragua and Belgium, where he was ordained a priest in 1925. Father Pro suffered from chronic stomach ailments and when, after several operations his health did not improve, his Jesuit superiors allowed him to return to Mexico in 1926 despite the horrible religious persecution underway in Mexico.

Catholic College Hosts Massive Display for Planned Parenthood


Planned Parenthood’s aggressive targeting of college students is no secret. But it is still disturbing when the abortion business manages to push its way onto traditionally pro-life college campuses. Last week, Saint Mary’s College, a Catholic school in Notre Dame, Indiana, hosted a large pro-Planned Parenthood display on campus. According to the Church Militant, Students for Life had organized a pro-life display exposing Planned Parenthood’s deceptive abortion practices on Oct. 15 at Saint Mary’s; and in response, the college Feminists United Student Group set up a counter-display on Oct. 29.

Just Wear the Stupid Gym Shorts!!!

Put yourself in their shoes.

Am I the only Mama who feels like 5:00pm – 7:00pm are the worst hours of the day? I mean, what good occurs between 5:00pm – 7:00pm? Nobody likes what we had for dinner. You can smell my cat’s litter box from the driveway. The dishes are teetering over the edge of the sink. I can’t understand my 1st grader’s homework. I’m tired. My girls are tired. Let’s be honest – even the cat’s in a bad mood. And yet… it’s still… not… bedtime.

St. John Paul II: No Communion for Divorced Who Remarried

CNS News:

John Paul II, who served as Pope from 1978 to 2005 and was canonized a saint in 2014 by Pope Francis, declared in 1981 that the Church “reaffirms her practice” of not allowing divorced and remarried persons to receive Communion because to do so would contradict Church teaching and lead the faithful “into error and confusion” about the “indissolubility of marriage.”

We Are Stained Glass People

Reflecting the light of God through our imperfections. A wonderful reflection from Mariele Courtois:

We are surrounded by several young children. Some are eager to befriend us, and others are more careful. “How are you?” we ask one young girl. She looks at us. We talk to her. About school. About the beautiful day. About anything. It is not exactly a conversation. It is only an attempt to put her at ease. Her responses are short and guarded.

Why Our Babies Aren't Angels

Difficult topic here.

My baby’s not an angel. And I’m glad for it. Almost anyone who has ever lost a child has probably heard it or said it themselves. In the midst of condolences or their own processing of grief, they are told that their child is now an angel. The platitudes are many: You’re now a parent to an angel. They just received their angel wings I have two angel babies in heaven. Now you have your own guardian angel. There is talk of an “angel day”, jewelry with angel wings representing their baby or loved one, sweet poems regarding our new angels in heaven, and even Catholic companies selling items bedecked with winged babies as a memorial for miscarriage or infant loss. “Angel baby” is a common term in the miscarriage/infant loss world for a baby that has died.

Ben Carson Was Right to Compare Abortion to Slavery

I know it's controversial. Don't care. It is the dehumanization of others.

This weekend, Ben Carson did what he does best. He clearly and plainly stated a mainstream conservative view that most Republican politicians dare not utter — in this case, that the debate over abortion is comparable to the debate over slavery. Speaking to NBC’s Chuck Todd, Carson said: “During slavery — and I know that’s one of those words you’re not supposed to say, but I’m saying it — during slavery, a lot of slave owners thought they had the right to do whatever they wanted to that slave, anything that they chose. And what if the abolitionists had said, ‘I don’t believe in slavery, but you guys do whatever you want’? Where would we be?”

Surest Way to Moral Chaos? Ignore the Bible

Eric Metaxas writes:

What’s the surest way to theological, spiritual, and moral chaos? Ignoring the Bible, of course. In their book “The Faith: What Christians Believe, Why They Believe It, and Why It Matters,” Chuck Colson and Harold Fickett wrote, “Knowing God is and He has spoken, enables the Christian to affirm that there is truth, an ultimate reality that begins with God and extends throughout his creation.”

Helen Alvare Says "Dear Synod Fathers, You Missed a Step."

Important read:

Something is missing from the two trajectories emerging from the Vatican’s Synod on the Family. The first trajectory emphasizes reaching out to the “lost sheep” where sex and marriage are concerned. The second (dubbed the “Yes We Can!” plan by John L. Allen Jr.) — holds that people can really live according to Church teachings and that “we’re going to have your back in pulling it off!” But what about about giving Catholics a floor to stand on? And a brightly lit path? In other words, what about a step that could both help prevent lost sheep and inspire strong families?

Synod Confronts “Gender Ideology,” Threat to Education

The Cardinal Newman Society has the interview:

An auditor at the Synod on the Family in Rome says that the growing threat to families from the spread of gender ideology, particularly the danger it poses to all levels of education, has been discussed at length during the Synod. “[Gender ideology] has enormous implications for Catholic education at every level – including college,” said Dr. John Grabowski in an interview with The Cardinal Newman Society. Grabowski is a professor of moral theology and ethics at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., and an auditor and assistant to the General Secretary at the Synod. “The concern about ‘gender ideology’ has been discussed in the Synod, both in the general assembly and in small groups.”

Reporter Hits DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz With Jarring Abortion Question

This moral miscreant can't even admit her own kids were human. Because that would give up the game.

A reporter with MRC TV recently asked Democratic National Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz if her three children were “human beings” before they were born. After a brief pause, Schultz replied, “I believe that every woman has the right to make their own reproductive choices.” “What did you believe about your children though?” the reporter pressed.
