… When a Pope really Makes a Difference [#naming Cardinals]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,October 28th,2016

.. the Princes of the Church really run the Church .

.. they are also the brainpower and the theological heft of the Church and the faithful …

.. when a Pope creates new cardinals , it really makes a difference . Most of all , when the cardinal is below the [voting age] of 80 , it really matters . Any of those folks participating in a possible Papal Conclave could come out of it as the new Pope …

.. [link] to the blog post …

.. Pope Francis has created [already] almost 1/5 (or , 20%) of the voting age cardinals in the church . Many of them are from outside of Italy and also from outside of continental Europe . So , the face of the Church is continuing to change …

.. eventually , there will be Popes from Asia , and , believe it or not , from North America . It may not happen soon , but , it will happen someday …

… What is Louisiana Thinking [#religious freedom]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,August 3rd,2014

.. or , unfortunately , lack thereof ..

.. I am a Roman Catholic . I have been to the confessional , and understand what it means . I studied about it a lot when I was a part of the R.C.I.A. [Rite of Christian Initiation in Adults] . So , it hits very close to me .

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview]..

.. [link] to the editorial..

.. they would force a priest to violate the sanctity of the seal of the confessional ? That is nuts …

.. how the state of Louisiana could have adopted such a law is insane . They affect the religion and rights of anyone and everyone , whether they are Catholic or not . This law hits the ” priest – penitent ” privilege , because it is also known as the ” pastor – penitent ” privilege , no matter what the religion or the faith …

.. I hope Louisiana changes this law , and soon . I think that the shock of what the Louisiana Supreme Court has done has gotten their attention …

… Harvard at least Shows Some Sense [Satanic ” Black Mass”]

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,May 14th,2014

.. somehow , in their lack of sense , the Wicca crowd at Harvard College scheduled what is (was) known as a Satanic ” Black Mass . ” How the ” hell ” these idiots came up with the bright idea for an event such as that , I will never understand . Especially considering Harvard ‘ s pedigree and history …

.. [h/t — HarvardCrimson]..

.. [link] to the news article ..

.. Harvard was originally founded (back in the 1640s , I believe) as a college principally devoted to the teaching and education of religion , faith , and the promulgation of ministers . Boy , oh , Boy , has Harvard come a long way since then …

.. amazingly enough , a club (the Cultural Studies Club) was the original sponsor of the event . Someone must have convinced them to come to their senses ….at least these idiots first drove this so – called ” Black Mass ” off of campus . Then the morons trying to put it on eventually gave up the ghost , as it were . Thank God !! …

… Congratulations to Both !! [canonization of Popes John XXIII and John Paul II]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,April 27th,2014

.. Saint John XXIII and Saint John Paul II !!

.. today , both former Popes and successors of Saint Peter are to be canonized at the Vatican in Vatican City .

.. I can understand that it is going to be a ” zoo ” there in Rome and the surrounding regions . Pope John XXIII was from the Lombardy region in the north of Italy . It will draw a significant crowd from there , but not as much as one might think , since John XXIII has been gone for 51 years … for John Paul II , it is a very , very different matter …

.. [h/t — Newsmax]..
.. [link] to Edward Pentin ‘ s column …

.. His Holiness John Paul II was chosen Pope from a Poland that was not free . Poland at the time was a part of the Soviet Orbit , and a part of the Warsaw Pact . Now , the Soviet Union is gone , the Warsaw Pact is gone , and Poland is free . Better yet , Poland is probably the leading light of the post – Soviet nations , and with this event , you can guarantee many hundreds of thousands , potentially one or two million or more religious pilgrim will come to Rome and Vatican City for this event …

.. also , back in Poland , once it happens , I believe there will be a race to create a significant number of Catholic parishes (new ones) named after Saint John Paul II . I am not sure that the Archdioceses in Poland will allow existing parishes to change their names , but who knows ? I also think that the Archbishop must approve , plus the reigning prelate [ a Cardinal ] in Poland , as well ..
