Cardinal Sarah: St. John Paul II ‘forced his broken body to kneel’ before Eucharist | News | LifeSite

Catholics should follow Pope St. John Paul II’s example of kneeling before the Blessed Sacrament, Cardinal Robert Sarah said, noting that the late pope knelt even until his last days. The cardinal also highlighted St. Teresa of Calcutta’s reverence for the Eucharist, noting that she once said nothing brought her more sadness than Communion on the hand.

Episcopalian homosexual ‘marriage’

May I be the first to welcome back any Episcopalians who, after their church agreeing to conduct ‘marriage’ services for homosexual couples, would like to realign themselves back into the One True Fold in the fullness of the Faith of Jesus Christ.

This also applies to our other Separated Brethren (especially from the other Anglican communions who will no doubt follow suit).

Many Muslims – maybe even the majority – are peaceable and want the things we all want. A happy family, home… fulfillment. But if you read the Koran, it is hard to see how Islam, with its repeated injunctions to slaughter the Infidel without mercy, can ever possibly be described as a religion of peace.

Having read the qoran this statement is totally true – Our recourse to combat this is the Holy Rosary of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and Our Blessed Lord Himself transebstantially present in the Most Blessed Sacrament.

Another shock was for us the practice of the giving Holy Communion in hand. To my parents, my siblings and to me such a practice was really horrible, my mother even cried, when she saw such a scene.

RORATE CÆLI: Conference on Amoris Laetitia: The Need for Consistency between Magisterium and Tradition

Now, these five questions have put the Pope in a stalemate. If he were to answer them by denying the Tradition and the Magisterium of his predecessors, he would pass to being formally heretical, so he cannot do it. If instead he were to answer them in harmony with the previous Magisterium, he would contradict a great part of the doctrinally relevant actions taken during his pontificate, so it would be a very difficult choice. He, therefore, chose silence because, humanly speaking, the situation can appear to have no way out.

If you haven’t already done so, please (Click on the above link and) read this paper carefully. It is excellent and by far the clearest critique of Amoris Laetitia and its relevance to the Doctrine of the Church that I have read. If you have glanced at it, but thought it a bit long to read in detail, please give it another go and read it thoroughly.

Turin Shroud Replica at Immaculate Heart – Immaculate Heart

The last of our 2017 Lenten talks was given by the incredibly talented friend of the parish, Mr Henry Creechan who has made a life size replica of the Shroud of Turin. After the 6pm Low Mass the Replica and another smaller image were blessed while the schola sang Pergolesi’s ‘Stabat Mater’ and Palestrina’s ‘Adoramus Te Christe’. Afterwards we enjoyed supper together in a packed hall before Henry’s fascinating presentation on the topic of the Shroud. The whole evening ended in the most perfect way- Solemn Latin Compline (Traditional Night Prayer) by candlelight before the illuminated shroud image. Thanks to Mr Creechan for bringing so much blessing by his talents and to Fr Morris for facilitating the event and for conducting the liturgies so beautifully. The Shroud will remain at IHOM for the next two weeks.
