Doctrine of Ordination now under attack by Jesuits (who else?)

First, an amuse bouche, something light to work into something seriously wrong.
Here is an oldie but goody. We had this tacked up on the bulletin board in the rectory at St. Agnes in St. Paul for years.

You may have read about how, during the airplane presser on the way back from Sweden, Pope Francis was asked a question about the ordination of women.  The Pope slammed the door hard, saying, “Never“, which on my planet, which … Continue reading

Form The College Fix:
Believing in two genders is a ‘hate crime’ under police investigation at Catholic college

More queer Jesuit antics

Via California Catholic Daily:
New Santa Clara theology dean opened IgnatianQ Conference [?!? – This must be part of the nether-side of the rock movement to “queer” theology.  No, really.]

More weird sex stuff at Jesuit-run Fordham University

In my other day job I am the captain of HMS Surprise. Therefore I took note of something I read about Bl. Pius IX and USS Constitution.  You will recall from your reading of The Fortune of War that Jack and Stephen were aboard … Continue reading

Modern “art” in churches: the joy of the Enemy

This rubbish is now hanging in the Jesuitenkirche (Jesuit Church) of Vienna.

Pope to canonize 16th century Jesuit, waives procedure

With the stroke of his pen he waived the (in my opinion prudent and yet still not enough) requirement for a second miracle before the canonization of Bl. John XXIII.

America Magazine (aka “The cool kids’ table”) rises above petty distinctions

From the WaPo comes some promotion of the Jesuit mystique.
Here is a great example of how the MSM promotes liberal Catholics as the cool kid’s table. America Magazine is seemingly going to eschew the “liberal” and “conservative” dichotomy, rise above … Continue reading
