How about this? “Cradle Catholics should speak less, listen more.”

Michael Sean Winters, the Wile e. Coyote of the liberal catholic Left at the Fishwrap, and hyper-liberal Massimo “Beans” Faggiolo at Villanova, and the papalatrous gnostic Austen Ivereigh at Crux have incited a little war on converts recently.
According to them, … Continue reading

Is ‘Amoris laetitia’ compromised because of ghostwriter plagiarism?

There is a bit of hard reporting and analysis at Crux today which merits close attention.
Also, at the end, I have a face-saving solution for everyone regarding the Five Dubia and controversy about Amoris laetitia Chapter 8.
Here is some helpful text criticism. … Continue reading

John Allen on Summorum Pontificum: “Most Catholics who wanted access to the older Mass already had it”

Over at CRUX (now perhaps Crux 2.0? – the Boston Globe ended its life support – Zombie Crux? – the KofCs support it now, which I can’t get my head around… but I digress…), editor John L. Allen made an odd statement … Continue reading

Wherein Fr. Z sends his readers to Crux… yes… you read that right.

My friend the nearly ubiquitous John L. Allen, Jr, formerly of the Fishwrap and now with the Boston Globe, at the site of his new project Crux has a fun column.
I don’t get to say “fun” about Crux very often, which … Continue reading

Two African Cardinals standing up!

In the lead up (already) to next October’s Synod, the continuation of last October’s wild ride with its bizarre rules, backroom maneuvers, and strange proposals, Africa (pace Card. Kasper) is coming into its own.
I saw this at the National Catholic … Continue reading

John Allen pulled a fast one over at Crux about the Synod

A preliminary list of some of the bishop-members of next October’s Synod of Bishops to discuss “the family” has been released.  There are big holes in the membership still, since many conferences haven’t yet elected officers, etc.  You can tell … Continue reading

ACTION ITEM – POLL – Card. Burke on Church becoming “feminized” UPDATE

Over Crux, the same-sex union between the Fishwrap and the secular Boston Globe (with all the same characters).
There is a poll, on the left side.. scroll down.

I, for one, agree.  Make up your own mind.
Results as of this writing…

Perhaps all of you could … Continue reading

ACTION ITEM! POLL ALERT! – Crux poll on recent Synod of Bishops

I have stopped looking at Crux as often as I did when it first entered the fray.
Why?  They say they want “balance”.  I don’t see much balance.
Today an email blurb arrived with teases about the fare they are proffering today. … Continue reading

RNS smear of Card. Burke

Liberal Religion News Service is less and less careful to pretended objectivity when it comes to coverage of Catholic matters.  Crux, by the way, took what follows lock and stock.
Watch how they paint him, smear, with words and premises which you … Continue reading

John Allen on Pope Francis’ targeting of conservatives, traditionalists

Over at Crux (and my jury is still out… sort of… well… maybe not so much), John Allen posted something about how it seems that, under Pope Francis, conservatives and traditionalists are under fire.
Does Pope Francis have an enemies list?
In … Continue reading

As The Synod Turns

Any one who looks at Catholic stuff on these interwebs today (and for the near future) is going to be inundated with Synod stuff.
We have to be wary.
Do you remember that, just before Benedict XVI abdicated, during an audience he … Continue reading

Crux – Fr. Z’s initial observations

I have been watching the new initiative from the Boston Globe, with the involvement of former Fishwrap writer John Allen: Crux.
I have some initial observations.
Happily, it seems to me that Crux has the potential to make the National catholic Fishwrap irrelevant.  Sadly, it … Continue reading
