I was among the Knights of Columbus Honor Guard this morning at San Antonio's Assembly 2019. https://www.archsa.org/assembly/
The Amazon Synod has come to a close, producing a report that easily could have been written before it even started. The deck was so thoroughly stacked by who would attend and what was to be discussed that no other outcome was realistically possible.
Pushing for married priests is a terrible idea. Women "deacons" is heresy. Pray that to the degree Pope Francis follows this path that he has orchestrated, that a future pope will thoroughly and definitively undo.
Msgr. Charles Pope (reserved, level-headed) writes for EWTN's National Catholic Register:
On Saturday evening I was with brother Knights attending the White Mass in San Antonio, TX.
Earlier today I was part of a small group of Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus who joined the parishioners of San Antonio's Italian Catholic Parish for their Columbus Day Procession.
I spent several hours this very hot South Texas afternoon with some of my brother Knights as we participated in a San Antonio Right to Life Rally.
With my brother Knights this morning
After another great evening with my Knights of Columbus friends, I am so tired! Time now to put head to pillow.
Can there be any doubt that our culture is caught in a deep, spiritual war? Watch as a member of the WH Press Corp publicly calls for demonic possession. https://quodverum.com/2019/07/194/the-mother-of-all-freudian-slips.html
This is an interesting video on Gab and Mastodon. Unfortunately, it makes the error of not clearly differentiating Mastodon instances from some of its developers.
To be clear, the Mastodon developers do NOT speak for Mastodon instances other than the ones they personally operate. It is sadly clear that those developers. while doing good and laudable work in creating, enhancing and sharing this software, are none-the-less anti-free-speech.
Gab for their part is also far from perfect and arguably has caused harm to free-speech efforts. However, they are routinely and purposefully misrepresented by forces opposed to this basic freedom.
Guess I'm going to become a "morning person."
I was speaking with Bill before Mass this morning (he helps setup the schedule for readers, altar severs, extraordinary ministers of communion, etc.) and offered to "pinch-hit" if a scheduled reader couldn't make it to Mass, explaining that I lived right around the corner from the Church and make it over in a matter of minutes. So we exchanged phone numbers.
Then he said, "Oh by the way, how would you feel about working the 8:00AM Masses? One of our readers tells me his eyes are going bad." Umm... Of course I told him that will be fine.
So it looks like I'll be rising early every morning, shaving and getting ready for the call. Just in case. And that means going to bed early, too. Life.
Good morning and Happy Sunday!
This is Knights of Columbus Corporate Mass Day for my Council and Ill be attending Mass together with my brother Knights. When there I'll be picking up the monthly schedule for lectors and altar servers to see when I'm assigned to do the readings. And I'll be praying for all of you and our President, too. 🙏
