Father Mazzuchelli and the New Evangelization article in the Catholic Herald

I’ve really neglected my blog, my energies are quite limited and I have been working and doing some other good things. I do want to get back to blogging. But for the record I have written an article which appears in this week’s Madison Catholic Herald. It also appears on the newspaper website at the… (read more)

Father Mazzuchelli for the New Evangelization

I have good news from the Cathedral Parish that we can have a parish book group meet at Holy Redeemer Church to read Venerable Fr Samuel Mazzuchelli’s Memoirs beginning in January, which will be an ideal way to observe the 150th anniversary of this great priest’s death, which falls on February 23rd of 2014.

Please forgive me if you have been checking here and found nothing new for a long while!

They released it today, and… (read more)

Benedictine priest to give fundraiser concert at Holy Wisdom Monastery?

The corrupt monks of Saint John’s Abbey have long been connected with the once-Benedictine Sisters near Madison who left the religious life and left the Church (see all of my extensive coverage of HWM at this link). In fact one of them, canon lawyer Dan Ward, actually facilitated the former Benedictine sisters leaving religious life… (read more)

The next, and likely even more aggressive, wave of persecution

Bishop Morlino says: It is unclear exactly what the Supreme Court decisions will legally mean in our country. The fact remains that marriage means something, and this something is from God and cannot be changed by us, our laws, or by our courts. The truth of marriage is an absolute, with which we have no… (read more)
