“But… but… the traditional ways are… are… toooo haaaard!” Wherein Fr. Z rants.

I blocked out the name of the nut job who posted this tweet, lest he get traffic. It couldn’t have been closer to “Pò sì jiù!… Down With The Four Olds!” The tweet is the less eloquent contemporary version of … Continue reading

This is what’s going on where I am. I’ll bet it’s going on where you live.

“Let the Jesuits come to me. With hands in the air and without algorithms.” Fr. Z says: Let the Jesuits GO TO CHINA.

When I was a little kid I used to look forward to morning cartoons. Even as an adult I always turned to find The Far Side before the box scores. Now we must content ourselves with jokers like this. In … Continue reading

The “Great Progressive Propaganda Machine”, Totalitarian Agendas, Incrementalism, and YOU – Wherein Fr. Z rants

I don’t want to know anything about film and stage actors personal lives or, usually, vapid thoughts.  Laura Ingraham had a good phrase for the screeching pop tarts: “shut up and sing”.   If I go to a movie, I just … Continue reading

Note the twisted moral logic of those in power today

Here is a classic example of what is going on in the Church on the highest level.   Follow the argument.  My emphases. From Crux: ROME – A leading Vatican official says he would “hold the hand” of someone who was … Continue reading

#AmazonSynod -1st attack on the Priesthood: The Cassock

Throughout history, anti-Catholicism and anti-clericalism has specifically targeted the cassock for a great share of its fear and hatred. In some places the cassock could get you killed. Today as the Amazon Synod opens – during which we fully expect … Continue reading

ASK FATHER: Did Francis say something heretical about God and our sins?

From a reader… QUAERITUR: You always [write] about going to confession and that’s great!  But I read in a Catholic Herald article that in a speech about confession Pope Francis said that God ‘forgets’ our sins.   How can that be?  Is … Continue reading

“The Church of priests is coming to an end.” What’s really going on.

At Settimo Cielo long time vaticanista Sandro Magister posted something that should make everyone stop, breathe for a while, and consider options. Context: In October there will be a meeting of the Synod of Bishops on the Amazon, during which the … Continue reading

“LaCI and Beans” back at it again! Attack US Bishops for their enthusiastic implementation of law

Go to radical-liberal, anti-tradition La Croix International, (LaCI) run by a cadre around openly-“gay” (and HERE) Robert Mickens.  Mickens, you will recall, is so filled with animus for John Paul II and Benedict XVI that he lost his place with the … Continue reading

The Catholic Church to Jesuits of Amerika: “No one can be at the same time a good Catholic and a true socialist.”

THIS – at Америка – speaks for itself. Dean Dettloff.  Who? HERE I note in particular another of his offerings: “Christian Socialism: The Fusion of Faith and Revolution”. Here’s a quote from his piece: Communist political movements the world over … Continue reading

@JamesMartinSJ – “It is stupefying that women can’t preach”, says the Jesuit. Oh, yeah? Here’s what’s truly stupefying.
