Cardinal Burke to Be Exiled to Malta?


 

If this article is true, there may be a big divide coming in the U.S. Catholic community. Cardinal Raymond Burke is a favorite of many  American "traditional" Catholics.  He seems to have gotten on the wrong side of Pope Francis and those in charge.

Fr. Pacwa's Unique Rosary



Fr. Dwight Longenecker is visiting the EWTN studio this week, and shared some time with Fr. Mitch Pacwa, who showed him his unique 'spiritual combat' rosary made from .22 bullets. Look out Satan!

United to Christ's Cross

 

"There are two kinds of people in the world. Those who look at the Cross and shake their fist, and those who are united to Christ on the Cross."
~ Venerable Fulton J.Sheen

The Cross is planted in the earth and would seem to extend its roots in human malice, but it reaches up, pointing as it were to the heavens, pointing to the goodness of God. By means of the Cross of Christ, the Evil One has been defeated, death is overcome, life is given to us, hope is restored, and light is imparted.
~ Pope Saint John Paul II

What Luke-warm Catholicism Has Wrought

New York City skyscrapers lit with crosses for Easter March 29 1956

This photo was from March 1956, New York City skyscrapers were lit with crosses for Easter.

Can you imagine this happening today, less than 60 years later?
It would never be allowed!

What we stand for, and what we stand up for, does make a huge difference! Stand up for the Cross. Stand up for Christ.

Stand up for true Catholicism, not watered down or luke-warm, but true, and unchangeable Catholicism.

Catholics in America will – and do – suffer for ‘swimming against the tide’

 

"Faithful Catholics will face increasing difficulties in American society as public life becomes more dominated by another “religion” that marginalizes the Church and imposes its own morality, Cardinal Francis George of Chicago has written."

St. John Chrysostom Quotes


 http://www.ministryofthearts.org/media/00/a20792a12c98b202bc563b_m.jpg

“I have taken you in my arms, and I love you
and I prefer you to my life itself.
For the present life is nothing, and my most ardent dream is to spend it with you in such a way that we may be assured of not being separated in the life reserved for us..Heaven.
I place your love above all things, and nothing would be more bitter or painful to me than to be of a different mind than you..”
~ Saint John Chrysostom

Justice United with Love and Mercy, Fr. Mitch Pacwa 9/11/2014

Father Mitch Pacwa always delivers wonderful homilies, but today's homily was beyond wonderful! Today he spoke about our current situation with terrorism. A most appropriate talk for 9/11 in America, but it was much more. This was an inspired homily and it is one every Christian must hear, take to heart and act upon, with the help of God.

He had a great devotion to our Blessed Mother Mary. Totus Tuus is a Latin phrase meaning "totally yours" and expressed his personal Consecration to Mary
