#2370     This Is Life, with Lisa Ling - Called to the Collar

It is heartening to see such an upsurge in vocations to the priesthood in this article. The clerical collar seems to be used as a selling point, somewhat similar that Sisters and Nuns who keep the veil are the real brides of Christ. Often the sporting of the collar and veil is the front line for very pious, conservative people who see their high points within Rubrics as distinct from real Liturgy. Religious and Priests who are deeply immersed in the foot washing spirituality and ministry are often seen as more authentic than the clerical collar and the habited Sisters and Nuns. Unfortunately many Collar and Veil people are somewhat arrogant and driven by power and narcissieistic tendencies. From an old man, Fr Kevin Walsh Stanhope Gardens NSW

Good on you Fr Rob, great to see you using your gifts in ministry. Please be equally approachable and caring to the elderly people in the Parish where your servant ministry is grounded. It is fairly easy to Mininster to the Youth; but to the homeless, the home bound, it takes a little more sensitivity. May the Passion of Jesus live in your heart, cheers Fr Kevin Walsh - Stanhope Gardens NSW

This is an innovative & encouraging event we should, where we are able, commit to in some way or another. What a beautiful promise of blessing interwoven into this whole theme for the year. Don't want to & can't afford to miss this. In order to discover and realize my own vocation, dedication to this in some substantial way is essential to accomplishing this.

This is absolutely hysterical! Get real Hamas - you were not, are not, and never will be able to change the fact: that Israel is the traditional custodian of this place, this area. God has decreed it so for thousands of years it's been God's mandate - that the nation of Israel have tribal custodianship over all those areas. It's Biblical truth whether people want to dispute it or not. Israel in modern times still has a long way to go too. The nation has given over itself through many worldly leaders into bolstering a form of government which doesn't in many ways honor this traditional custodianship right bestowed on it by the Lord. It's time to get real too, Israel, and honor the birthright given by living it out. Exile has been too long in the hearts and minds of many to the point where they don't think with our indigenous soul anymore - they still think with the fetters of exile on as though they are meant to live this way always. C'mon people, it's nothing but a re-hash of the fallicious desire to turn back to the Egypt which enslaved us. Dispense with this temptation to go back to slavery and BE FREE!

Dear Anthony:

Prayers for intercession can be made at this or even an earlier stage. In fact, the promoters of the cause often ask people to pray for their intentions so as to be able to have evidence of a miracle for the cause.

This is distinct from any official liturgical celebration, which does not commence until after beatification - at a local level - and a general level after canonization.

Can we - as the universal Church - ask for the intercession from 'venerables', or is it only for the beatified and canonised?

The sad thing is that people thought her doing this was a good thing. Very sad. Shows how very few people want to go that 'extra mile' for another person these days, unlike the values they had in the Harp of the South novels.

#2355     Pope Condemns Corruption in Politics, Business and Church

He is so correct- Here is an example: The Republican party, owned by billionaires, many who claim to be Christian aren't serving Christ.


"Citizen United" supreme court ruling, gave billionaire corporations power to use money to influence people and win elections. We the people got enough signatures to put for a vote for the people, not the corrupt Supreme Court to decide if we wish to overturn the " Citizens United" law.

Confirming what the pope says, not a single Senate Republican approved of putting Citizens United for a vote. They are supposedly representing the people, and won't even let us vote!

The bible teaches: "For the love of money is the root of all evil" . The USA's republican congress proves how power corrupts and money is winning over Christian teachings. Yes, money rules. While millionaires amass wealth, 1 out of every 5th person in the USA goes to bed hungry every night.

Here is a link to the released document for those interested in reading from the source. http://press.vatican.va/content/salastampa/en/bollettino/pubblico/2014/10/13/0751/03037.html

I feel for priests who at this time are no doubt having to deal with people's difficult situations and who are faced with the attitude that Church teachings and disciplines have now been changed.

May the Synod Fathers be guided by the Holy Spirit.

The hypocrisy of both the so called conservative and orthodox and progressive Catholics is sadly unsurprising. The media is twisting it both in Orthodox and Progressive outlets. Neither side has the spine to address the real issues of the Church, being unmarried people over 30 and the mental health epidemic, instead it's easy to focus on gay debates.

So true Catholic unmarrieds who are non religious, non clergy and no kids are the most ignored abandoned people in the Church.
