"The Interview" that is very concerning

When an interview of Pope Francis was published in the Jesuit America Magazine, all the liberals in the Church (and elsewhere) were throwing parties because they think that the Church is to abandon it's Dogma and change it's teaching to conform to the post-Christian world.

But not so fast. While "The Interview" is very confusing, it should not be considered as infallible teaching because the Holy Father was not speaking ex-cathedra, but rather in front of a journalist. This is not an official Papal document. The whole thing is pointless in terms of ecclesiastical affairs. 

However, many Novus Ordo conservatives are now in uproar over this interview, and are concerned that the Pro-Life movement might get the plug pulled. Traditionalist Catholics since Vatican II have been concerned of the whole state of the Church. So it is very possible that we all might actually get onboard before it's too late. 

The following Remnant Forum tries to interpret what the Pope means from this interview, but it is very difficult:

While Vatican officials have to continue to clarify what the Holy Father has to say, we must pray for him that he lead the Church from evil. 

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and to do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust into Hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

Sunday update...

I was unable to attend Mass today due to an illness over the weekend, so please pray for me. 

Thanks, Chris

"Nuturing" juvenile delinquents clearly not working

Earlier this week, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick signed a bill into law that ends automatic adult charges for 17-year-olds, a practice that has been in place since 1846. (I don't know how many kids misbehaved back then.) However, this law, which was sponsored by State Rep. Jim O'Day of West Boylston and had unanimous support in the Legislature, still gives prosecutors the right to pursue adult charges if the Juvenile Court deems so (which has been and will still be the case for 14-year-old suspected murderers). 

This law does not affect the cases currently pending that began before the bill was signed. 

Additionally, if a 17-year-old is now arrested, he or she cannot be arraigned without parental notification. 

The juvenile justice system does not work. Bill Cosby says "it's broke." I agree with him, and further add that everyone should be charged in the same court system as everyone else- in a publicly accessible court of law. They should have the right to a jury trial, and they should be able to be represented by an attorney. 

The current juvenile justice system is solely based on rehabilitation, not punishment for one's sins [against the written statute]. Juveniles are generally regarded as infants in diapers even thought they may have stabbed someone or robbed a bank. If they are not sent to a juvenile detention facility, then they are assigned a probation officer until age 21 without any other additional punishments. 

In contrast, the Roman Catholic Church has dogmatically declared via the Council of Trent that the age of reason is 7 years old, and thereafter Pope St. Pius X lowered the minimum First Communion age to 7 from 9 for a normal, healthy child. So therefore, anyone age 7 and older is capable of committing a sin against God and His Church, and must go to Confession. Once the child is confirmed (the minimum age is 12), he or she not only becomes a Soldier of Jesus Christ and a member of the Church Militant, but is responsible for any ecclesiastical actions, albeit they are considered minors until age 18. A 13-year-old can be excommunicated just like his parents. Besides, the Church will recognize marriages contracted between 16-year-old males and 14-year-old females where it permissible by civil law. 

The reason why there are too many kids in lockup because they have had little or no exposure to God, either from their families, peers, teachers, and often times from perverted Novus Ordo Catholic presbyters. Yet medical treatment and counseling claim to cure everything-they don't cure crime. So teachers and parents must teach what's morally right before we herd career adult criminals. 

If 8-year-olds can get arrested, then they should be tried like everyone else according to the Constitution.

Survived another year

This past week, I had celebrated my birthday. Happy birthday to me. While I am not going to tell anyone who old I am, I am going to say that I have not found my Catholic sweetheart yet, nor did I receive her as a present. I hope I find her soon.

"Muslim poem" replaces Pledge on 9/11 at Mass. school

Today's post is a follow-up from last week's post on the Pledge of Allegiance being under attack in Massachusetts public schools. Now, I am very disturbed to hear that Concord-Carlisle Regional High School, a suburban school west of Boston, read the poem "My Grandmother Washes Her Feet in the Sink of the Bathroom at Sears" by Mohja Kahf instead of reciting the Pledge of Allegiance on September 11, 2013, the 12th anniversary of those horrible Terrorist Attacks. (An article about this can be read here

While the Principal did apologize regarding the incident, such action is gravely unacceptable on a day where over 3,000 Americans lost their lives at the hands of Al-Qaeda. 

As an American, I am really offended that something like this would happen in the public schools, institutions that are supported by our tax dollars. What would a non-Islamic student do about this when he or she is offended by hearing this and is denied the right to place her hand over heart and recite the Pledge of Allegiance to God and country? 

While this poem is about nonsense to begin with, it should have not been read aloud in this context. But unfortunately, I would not be surprised that such nonsense of a similar nature would be performed at a school run by the Archdiocese of Boston under the auspices of Cardinal Sean. 

Our Lady of America, pray for us.

Pledge under attack in Bay State!

There are three things I have to share with you...

First, Today has been declared a World Day of Prayer and Fasting by the Pope. The Votive Mass in Time of War should be said, with purple vestments. 

Secondly, Cardinal Sean sent me an automated letter asking that I donate to the fake Catholic Appeal for 2013, since I have not sent money yet. Well Sean, no thanks unless you adopt Tradition. 

Lastly, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court heard arguments this week regarding an atheist family's children being offended because the Pledge of Allegiance is being recited in their school district on a daily basis. (The lower court ruled their is nothing wrong with the Pledge.) In several newspaper articles this week, many school superintendents are not enforcing State Law that requires students and school employees to recite the Pledge with proper decorum or face a $5 fine. 

If for some reason that this law is overturned, then you can thank the liberal nut jobs for dumping God and country out of the public square. America was founded on Judeo-Christian principles, and the elimination of God in the Pledge is a complete sacrilege.

I was told by a teacher over ten years ago that "The United States is going down the tubes because people have lost their morals." She was (and still is) right. It seems to have gotten worse over a decade later. 

Our Lady of America, pray for us!
