Pray for our Holy Father May 18, 2012

Pope Benedict XVI is under attack.  In no pontificate in memory have there been so many leaks of privileged, internal documents, as this one.  They seem to be coming from the (out of control?) Secretariat of State.  It is known that Cardinal Bertone is unpopular in many circles in the Curia, almost as unpopular as the Holy Father.  But these underhanded efforts, these sinful actions reveal the low moral character of those perpetrating them.  Pray for the Holy Father, he has many enemies, without and especially within the Church:



Lay group to bring canon lawsuit against Georgetown U. May 18, 2012

And they are seeking remediation up to and including the removal of Georgetown’s right to call itself Catholic, which, I think at this point, any faithful Catholic knows is a specious claim, anyway.  But friend Steve B might want to note this case of a lay group “filing suit” against a Church entity.  It will be interesting to watch where this goes:

Georgetown University alumni, students and others are preparing a canon law suit to be filed with the Archdiocese of Washington and the Vatican, seeking remedies “up to and including the possible removal or suspension of top-ranked Georgetown’s right to call itself Catholic or Jesuit in its fundraising and representations to applicants.”

The effort is being led by the distinguished Georgetown alumnus William Peter Blatty, who won an Academy Award for his screenplay and book The Exorcist and has been honored by Georgetown with its John Carroll Medal for alumni achievement.

Blatty is urging Georgetown alumni, students, parents, faculty and anyone associated with Georgetown to join the lawsuit at www.gupetition.org.  The website includes an inspiring letter by Blatty and a description of Georgetown’s historical ties to the Jesuits, the Washington Archdiocese and the Vatican.

Blatty has asked The Cardinal Newman Society to advise the effort, share documentation on Georgetown scandals, and provide administrative support. CNS President Patrick J. Reilly told Georgetown’s campus newspaper The Hoya:

For 19 years, The Cardinal Newman Society has documented numerous concerns at Georgetown that significantly compromise the university’s Catholic identity.

It goes back alot further than that.  The turning piont was the mid-60s and the Church’s failure to conform to the PhD theologian’s expectations, and it’s been disaster and apostasy run amok ever since.

Now we know that the laity can file a canon lawsuit.  Anyone know if this could extended to a bishop?

The Cardinal Newman Society just keeps doing better and better work.  They are doing a great deal to make faithful Catholics well aware of which “catholyc” universities to stay well, well away from (as well as recommending those few good schools). 

Their effort is valuable.  You can support them here, if you feel called, in charity, to do so.

Many vaccines grown in aborted fetal cells May 18, 2012

This sermon by a priest I know and trust implicitly states that aborted fetal cells are present in most vaccines my error – the vaccines are grown in aborted fetal cells, it’s still just as horrific, given that the way viruses reproduce is based on invading host (aborted) cells, so you are getting ground up baby parts in your vaccine- rubella, MMR, chicken pox, shingles, hep A, and others.  What a nightmare.  This is from 2008:


Supporting data here

I was reading another article yesterday, about how there is now a drive to get people to donate organs under various forms of duress – such as, granting pardons to prisoners who donate an organ, or paying $50,000 or whatever for a kidney from a live donor.  They are turning us into cattle!  We grow vaccines from “ground up aborted baby parts” and we kill people in comas to harvest their organs.

All this is the result of a lack of belief in eternity, in our true home which will be the one we inhabit forever after this short, illusory life is over.  Yes, many people believe in “heaven,” and even a few “hell,” but very few anymore tie their actions in this life with a concrete result in the next.  So many people, especially on the “progressive” side of the spectrum, don’t believe in any after life anymore.  And if you don’t believe in an afterlife, this is all you’ve got. 

More and more people are willing to do anything – ANYTHING – to prolong their life here.  That is a tremendous pressure for all kinds of horrific immoralities – from aborting babies for convenience or research, to harvesting organs, even against other’s will.

A culture divorced from God is not a beautiful society of light, reason, and humanly inspired morality – it’s a depraved, materialist, barbaric, utilitarian culture that says “what can you do for me?”  That’s the new paganism, and we see more and more distressing signs of it in our culture, as we drift further and further from God.

It’s sad.

More strategic nuclear warfare tomfoolery! May 18, 2012

Actually, not. But this is a really neat video of the most recent test of the SM-3 theater-level ballistic missile defense system.  It looks like they nailed the target threat missile in mid-course.  The final secons of the video show the image the interceptor saw milliseconds before impact:

No matter what USCCB or other peaceniks say, defensive weapons are inherently moral.  They are also stabilizing.
