Vatican II spawned three main “camps” within Catholicism: liberal, conservative, and traditional. In the battle for the soul of the Church, can conservative and traditional Catholics unite against their common foe? Timothy Flanders, the editor-in-chief of OnePeterFive joins Crisis Point to discuss this important topic. Links: OnePeterFive Editorial Stance of OnePeterFive Crisis PublicationsRead More

According to the Western press, the main takeaway from Pope Francis’ address to the bishops of Slovakia was: limit your homilies to ten minutes! We know that the advice’s “theological note” (the degree of how authoritatively binding a teaching is) is de fide definita because (a) he’s said it before and (b) it was accompanied […]Read More

Many conservatives say the Culture Wars are over and we have lost. Many people look around our culture and society and see utter destruction.

“EACH OF US CAN DISCOVER IN JOSEPH – THE MAN WHO GOES UNNOTICED, A DAILY, DISCREET AND HIDDEN PRESENCE – AN INTERCESSOR, A SUPPORT AND A GUIDE IN TIMES OF TROUBLE.” — Pope Francis, Patris Corde
With the Apostolic Letter “Patris corde” (“With a Father’s Heart”), Pope Francis recalls the 150th anniversary of the declaration of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church. To mark the occasion, the Holy Father has proclaimed a “Year of Saint Joseph” from December 8, 2020, to December 8, 2021.
At the conclusion of his Letter, Pope Francis adds another prayer to St Joseph, which he encourages all of us to pray together:
Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.
Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy, and courage,
and defend us from every evil. Amen.
ST. JOSEPH INTERCESSIONS
THE ARCHDIOCESE OF NEWARK
That, during this Year of St. Joseph, we may care for one another the way Joseph cared for Jesus, the Son of God. We pray:
That all fathers may be inspired during this Year of Saint Joseph to imitate him as loving husbands and parents to their families. We pray:
That all refugees may be consoled during this Year of Saint Joseph by the saint who cared for his family when fleeing danger. We pray:
For all who labor to earn their daily bread; may they be strengthened during this Year of Saint Joseph, and may they receive a just wage. We pray:
For all those who quietly minister in the Lord’s vineyard. May they be inspired by Joseph, the silent saint, to work humbly for God. We pray:
For all families, that during this Year of Saint Joseph they may grow together in joy and love, as did Jesus, Mary and Joseph. We pray:
For unborn children and their parents;
For the elderly and the seriously ill;
For those on death row and all victims of violence; may all life be protected through the intercession of Saint Joseph. We pray:

St. Joseph of Cupertino (1603-1663) was born at Cupertino, Italy, and died in Osimo. He was of lowly origin and had little formal education. In his youth he was employed as an apprentice to a shoemaker. He joined the Conventual Franciscans as a lay brother but was later ordained a priest. He was noted for his great austerities, his angelic purity, his great devotion to Our Lady and especially for his ardent love of God. Today is his feast in the previous liturgical calendar (1962).Read More

St. Robert Bellarmine (1542-1621) was born in Montepulciano, Italy, and died in Rome. The son of noble parents, he entered the Society of Jesus, finishing his theological studies at Louvain, Belgium. His services to the Church were outstanding and many. He occupied the chair of controversial theology in Rome. He defended the Holy See against anti-clericals. He wrote books against the prevailing heresies of the day. His catechism, translated into many languages, spread the knowledge of Christian doctrine to all parts of the world. He was the Counsellor of Popes and spiritual director of St. Aloysius Gonzaga. He helped St. Francis de Sales obtain approval of the Visitation Order. As a religious he was a model of purity, humility and obedience; as a bishop and Cardinal, an example of great love for his flock. St. Robert Bellarmine's feast is celebrated on May 13 in the previous calendar (1962).Read More

Today the Church commemorates two friends in the service of Christ and his Church. Cornelius, a Roman, was the twenty-first Pope during the reign of the Emperor Gallus and Volusian. He had to oppose Novatian, the first anti-pope, who believed that apostates who repented could not be forgiven. Helped by St. Cyprian, Cornelius confirmed his papal authority. He was beheaded in exile at Civitavecchia, Italy in 253. Saints Cyprian and Cornelius are mentioned in the Roman Canon (Eucharistic Prayer I) of the Mass.Read More
