Of Holy Matrimony, People’s Rights, and God’s Law
You may have seen the ads on TV or on the internet for the new “marriage equality” movement. What does this movement stand for? Has marriage been “unequal” in our society up to this point? What about the language of rights? Is marriage a “civil right”? What does that mean?

Now they just need an actual priest to go with the actual confessionals…
Confessionals without Priests
The indult blog Rorate Caelihas posted an article that tells of a Novus Ordo parish that has experienced an increase in people going to confession after having installed traditional confessional boxes and abandoning the modernist “reconciliation room”. “Actual confessionals mean more actual confessions,” titles Rorate Caeli. This is true, and by the same token, actual priests mean more actual absolutions. And there’s the problem: You can confess all you like, even in a traditional confessional box, but if the man on the other side isn’t a validly ordained priest, you’re not obtaining forgiveness of your sins (which was probably the point of you going to confession in the first place).
The Vatican, the SSPX, and the “Restoration of Tradition”
“Thus saith the Lord: Stand ye on the ways, and see and ask for the old paths which is the good way, and walk ye in it: and you shall find refreshment for your souls. And they said: we will not walk.”
“No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or he will hold to the one, and despise the other.”
―Our Blessed Lord Jesus Christ (Luke 16:13)
“But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach a gospel to you besides that which we have preached to you, let him be anathema.”
―Saint Paul (Galatians 1:8)
“The practice of the Church has always been the same, as is shown by the unanimous teaching of the Fathers, who were wont to hold as outside Catholic communion, and alien to the Church, whoever would recede in the least degree from any point of doctrine proposed by her authoritative Magisterium.”
―Pope Leo XIII, Encyclical Satis Cognitum (1896), n.
A significant contribution given its outlet’s Vatican-vetted content & the author – now spokesman-emeritus to the Popes – in @civcatt, the venerable Fr Lombardi surveys the decades-long path to February “Abuse Synod”… with some subtle prods along the way: https://t.co/BeJpfN3ysM
The fact that the Novus Ordo Church considers ecumenism an imperative - when the #Catholic Church taught it was impermissible - is one of the clearest proofs of a substantial change in religion: https://t.co/dhmcdnwPv0 #popefrancis #fssp #vatican #trcot
