APOSTOLATE - USING THE INTERNET

Image
USING THE INTERNET
The privilege of spreading the Good News and of defending Truth has always come at a cost. For most of the Apostles, the cost was, ultimately, their lives . Many of the Saints have paid the same price, but all with a glad heart. We live, as yet, in less demanding times. Yet the threats to the Good News and to Truth are multiplying like a cancer's cells. And now, in the United States of America, " Land of the Free", a great cause has moved the United States Government at the direction of its slick President to mount a direct attack against the Catholic Church founded by Jesus Christ.
What could this great cause be? You may well ask! It is nothing less than the killing of babies in their Mothers' wombs! In a word, Abortion.
The President himself has led this campaign from the front. He aims to force Catholic Institutions offering Health Insurance to provide cover for the cost of Abortions- thus obliging Catholics working in those institutions to be comp…

BISHOP MORRIS(DEPOSED) AND THE POISONED CHALICE

BISHOP MORRIS AND THE POISONED CHALICE
In the real world Bishop William Morris Deposed is largely forgotten, like other unpleasant experiences in a busy life.
However, in the Diocese of Toowoomba which the deposed Bishop so thoroughly wrecked, so that it had not had even one Seminarian for years, his creatures among the Clergy and paid Religious are still in place. Indeed, more than in place, they are using, without let or hindrance, the organs of the Catholic Church's Diocese to foment disaffection and promote the cause of the dissident deposed Bishop. Further, the Diocesan Website still carries and promotes Morris madness. And, at the Cathedral of the Diocese, St.Patrick's Toowoomba, last Sunday the Administrator of the Cathedral was using the Cathedral Newsletter to promote the fact that Morris advocacy documents were being distributed with his approval at the Cathedral doors. The documents were an opinion by retired Queensland Judge Bill Carter, and an opinion by a Sydney…

CARE! THIS IS A GOOGLE TRANSLATION AS BECOMES EVIDENT IN THE MORE COMPLEX SECTIONS , AND  IT IS ACCORDINGLY USEFUL ONLY AS A GENERAL GUIDE
The second paragraph, though brief , is compelling in its description of the present state of affairs.

Cardinals,
Venerable Brothers in the Episcopate and the Priesthood,
dear brothers and sisters!
It's always a joy being able to meet with you at the Plenary Session and to express my appreciation for the service that you do for the Church and especially for the Successor of Peter in his ministry of confirming the brethren in the faith (cf. Lk 22, 32). I thank Cardinal William Levada for his cordial words of greeting in which he recalled some important commitments met by the Congregation in recent years. And I am especially grateful to the congregation , in collaboration with the Pon…

NO SHACKLED SLAVE CAN BREATHE THE AIR
AUSTRALIA
"CORE OF MY HEART, MY COUNTRY"

To-day is Australia Day! I thank God for bringing me to Conception and Birth in this remarkable Country.
Not the most beautiful country in the world, not the strongest country in the world, not the leading country in the world. You can have all that.
My Country is a place of real freedom, of real peace, of frank and trustworthy folk, whose friendship isn't feigned. An open, generally trusting people who are nevertheless not too easily fooled. They abhor pretension and if they have a fault it is a desire to ensure that no-one rises too high - it is called the "tall poppy syndrome" - tall poppies get cut down to size!

Australians are a prag…

MULLING OVER MY INTERROGATION

MULLING OVER MY INTERROGATION
On 11th of this Month I did a Post entitled "I am Interrogated - Very Nicely". Since completing that Post, I have continued to reflect on what I wrote and the realities that caused me to form the views expressed there. It became clearer and clearer to me that , through much of my life, the Church has been engaged in a War being waged against her, by her deadly Foe.

It became equally clear that she has not always reacted in a manner appropriate to one in danger of, or actually under such attack, during the turbulent post-Conciliar period.
It also occurred to me that in my own life's experience and learning, I was confronted with a number of important parallels from the realm of naval operations. These parallels offer some serious food for thought.
STRATEGIC VIEW
Firstly, it is always critically important to have a clear understanding of the Strategic Picture. In the case of Naval Forces, this has its origins in Government's assessment of the i…
