Liturgical Year

Nov. 14 Wednesday of the Thirty-Second Week of Ordinary Time, Weekday

According to the 1962 Missal of St. John XXIII the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, today is the feast of St. Josephat, a Catholic of the Ruthenian rite. He was an apostle of the return of the Orthodox schismatics to the Church of Rome. At the age of twenty he became a Basilian monk, and while still young was made superior of his monastery, then archimandrite of Vilna and finally Archbishop of Polotsk. The young Archbishop's zeal for the cause of the "uniates" aroused the hatred of the schismatics, and he was murdered by a mob at Vitebsk in 1623 at the age of forty-three. His prayer contained the conversion of his murderers. He is one of the patrons of Poland. His feast in the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite is celebrated on November 12.

Why Remain Catholic? (With So Much Scandal)

Friends, in light of the recent scandals, I know many people are wondering whether they should remain in the Catholic Church. And I totally get that; the outrage is warranted. But in this time of crisis, I beg you not to flee, but to fight—not violently, with the weapons of the world, but with the weapons of the Spirit. We need you.

BISHOP BARRON'S ARTICLES

Stephen Hawking: Great Scientist, Lousy Theologian

“Is There a God?” This is the title of the first chapter of Stephen Hawking’s final book, “Brief Answers to the Big Questions.” To the surprise of no one who has been paying attention to Hawking’s musings on the subject the last several years, his answer is no. The problem is that one can be exceptionally intelligent in one arena of thought and actually quite naïve in another. This, I’m afraid, is the case with Stephen Hawking, who, though uniquely well-versed in his chosen field, makes a number of blunders when he wanders into the domains of philosophy and religion.

Stephen Hawking: Gran Científico, Terrible Teólogo

¿Existe Dios? Este es el título del primer capítulo del libro final de Stephen Hawking, “Breves respuestas a las grandes preguntas.” Su respuesta—que no puede sorprender a nadie que haya estado al tanto de las reflexiones de Hawking al respecto los últimos años—es que no. El problema es que uno puede ser excepcionalmente inteligente en un campo del pensamiento y bastante ingenuo en otro. Me temo que este es el caso con Stephen Hawking quien, aunque es excepcionalmente bien versado en su especialidad, mete la pata cuando se aventura en los dominios de la filosofía y la religión.

A look at blasphemy laws around the world

Islamabad, Pakistan, Nov 14, 2018 / 03:05 am (CNA/EWTN News).- While the world awaits the fate of Asia Bibi, who remains in hiding in Pakistan following the acquittal of her death sentence for blasphemy, religious freedom advocates are calling for an end to blasphemy laws across the globe.

“Blasphemy laws are a way for governments to deny their citizens – and particularly those of minority religions – the basic human rights to freedom of religion or belief and freedom of expression,” Dr. Tenzin Dorjee, chairman of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, said in the statement in October.

Commentary on the Culture

A modern lamentation, or jeremiad, on Church governance

When I am not lamenting how tough it is to raise funds for CatholicCulture.org (which is all too frequent this time of year), I’m lamenting the governance of the Catholic Church. As Hilaire Belloc told the Anglican bishop William Temple, it is a sign of the Church’s divine character that “no merely human institution conducted with such knavish imbecility would have lasted a fortnight.”

Send The Smoke of Satan to your bishop. Really. Do it.

Phil Lawler’s new book, The Smoke of Satan, is more than a superb analysis of what has gone wrong in the Church that has led to our current crisis. It also gives you something simple you can do all by yourself to help right the barque of Peter. And you really should take advantage of that. The subtitle of the book explains why: “How Corrupt and Cowardly Bishops Betrayed Christ, His Church, and the Faithful...and What Can Be Done About It”.

When politics is not local, the antidote is natural law.

Many experienced political campaigners stress that all politics is local. This is a useful axiom when both the freedom and the ability to engage politically are relatively widespread. In these situations, the building blocks of political victory are local building blocks, so much so that a pressing local concern that affects people’s daily lives will, at that level, trump other issues. Bob Marshall, author of Reclaiming the Republic (see my review and Thomas V. Mirus’ Podcast interview), was famous for dealing with Northern Virginians’ concern about traffic so that those who were not adamantly anti-life would still vote for him. But important as this insight is, we can see that it tends to define local politics as elections, the winning of which enables one to pursue goals which may not be locally supported.
