Hideous and Hypocritical

abortion

As long as the barbaric practice of abortion exists, we are hypocritical to send any murderer to prison. Clumps of cells, products of conception, contents of uterus—no, they're babies. You need to see this short three minute video. Tell all your friends.

Amoris Laetitia, Cardinal Burke, and Moral Law

Burke 7

I've tried to avoid weighing in on Amoris Laetitia until the dust settles, but that simply wasn't in the cards. For days, I've carried on an email correspondence with a Sixpacker. Our exchanges have covered a lot of things beside Amoris Laetitia, but that has been the main theme. So here I present the full exchange (to the point where I cut it off) between this Sixpacker and myself, carefully protecting his identity. You'll learn a lot of things by reading this. I welcome your comments, and would enjoy watching a debate among readers in the comments section.

No Salvation Outside the Catholic Church?

reformation

I attend a parish that subscribes to your service. I do not have the insert from this past Sunday and cannot remember the exact text so please excuse me. It was not the normal Joe Sixpack insert but rather one written by the devil. It listed various accomplishments that the devil has achieved one being the splitting of the Church by Luther. The text said something like "the devil got x-millions of lost souls in one transaction." Do you consider all non-Catholics lost souls under the devil's authority with no hope for salvation? It sounded that way to me but perhaps I did not understand the point.

Baptism Denied?

baby_baptism

If we are all God's children, why would a priest (actually 2 different priests from 2 different Catholic churches in this area) deny an innocent 9month old child Baptism?

I feel I must give you further information. My son was raised Catholic, and up until 2 years ago, was a practicing Catholic and his wife (who was baptized in the Catholic church as a baby ) attended church with him for a little over 6 years. He and his wife began going to a Baptist Church because his wife was not being spiritually fulfilled in the Catholic Church and requested they try other Christian churches. They began attending a Baptist church regularly a year and a half ago. My son felt that his family would have a better chance to stay church goers if they prayed together as a family, and he was having difficulty getting his wife to attend church. They are attending church regularly, but both of them want to have their third child baptized in the Catholic Church.

My priest at St ??? in [undisclosed city] would not allow the Baptism in his church. Just today, my son met with the priest at St ??? in [undisclosed city] and was denied as well. After reading your article on Baptism (including the story about the Eskimo child who was born of Pagan parents, who was baptized) I do not understand why my innocent grandchild should be denied Baptism.

All-Male Catholic Priesthood?

women priests

Can you explain why the Church only ordains Men to the priesthood? Why can't women be priests? Don't we all have the priesthood of Jesus by baptism?

Can we belong to the Freemasons?

freemasonswiki


My brother in law is both Catholic and a Freemason. He said he asked a priest and was told it was ok to be both. I have always understood that a Catholic cannot remain in good standing if they also are a freemason. Are there any recent teachings as to the Church's current stand on freemason membership?

Jim Caviezel—Catholic Actor

Jim Caviezel


Jim Caviezel, the actor who played Jesus in the movie Passion of the Christ, is a devout Catholic. He has the best layman's understanding of the Catholic theology of suffering and sacrifice I've ever heard. This video is one of the most inspiring testimonies I've ever heard. This should be heard by all—Catholic and non-Catholic alike.
