"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Fr. Z seems rather happy today...


Looks like everything's coming up rose-colored vestments for him lately.
You’ve seen the recent stories about leaders of US women religious being summoned to Rome for to explain the situation.
On the heals of another such story today (HERE) comes this, which I spotted at Church Militant.
Apparently the US weird sisters are now praying TO – not for – our old pal Sr. Joan D. Chittister, O.S.B. Perhaps it was her Triumph in Tahir Square that put them over the edge. Or could it have been theZoom to Zuccotti Park?
The Self-absorbed Promethean Neopelagians of Sr. Joan’s community thinks very highly of her, it seems.
Closer to his home base ...
The leaders of the Sisters of Loreto were called to Rome to talk about issues of doctrine and morals.
Then the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary were called.
Now I read at panicky Fishwrap (aka National Schismatic Reporter) that the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet are next.  [Uh huh… go ahead and pretend that you are the mistresses of your fate.] 

 And across the pond as 'they' say ...
... watching the results of BREXIT. So far London is still not counted, but right now it is looking like OUT will win.
The Pound is getting slammed. Today it started at $1.50.

It's a nice change from yesterday's rant about ...
[NAME DELETED – I won’t include the rat-bastard queer Muslim terrorist’s name] 

Travel cheap ...


  1. This is even better news, imo:

    Miami’s Archbishop Wenski calls out St. Petersburg's Bishop Lynch for judgmental pro-gay remarks...

    "Yet, in our confusion and in our anger, we must be careful lest we make truth another casualty in the aftermath of this lone-wolf terrorist attack. And to blame a particular religion or religion in general for this atrocity would do just that.

    CNN's Anderson Cooper rejects Pam Bondi's expressions of sympathy because she opposed same sex marriage. The New York Times editorialized that the victims were "casualties of a society where hate has deep roots.” They weren't talking about ISIS's caliphate but America. And one bishop who should know better even opined, and I quote: “It is religion, including our own which targets…and often breeds contempt for gays, lesbians and transgendered people.”

    Where in our faith, where in our teachings — I ask you — do we target and breed contempt for any group of people? In today’s second reading, St. Paul teaches us: “Through faith you are all children of God in Christ Jesus. There is neither Jew nor Greek… there is not male and female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Our faith, our religion gives no comfort, no sanction to a racist, or a misogynist, or a homophobe.

    In any case, Christians who support traditional marriage did not kill 49 people. Omar Mateen did. Religion and freedom of religion did not enable the killing and the maiming that we witnessed last Sunday. An evil ideology which is a corruption of Islam did.

    The right to religious freedom has its foundation in the very dignity of the human person. Religious freedom is the human right that guarantees all other rights — peace and creative living together will only be possible if freedom of religion is fully respected.

    Yet, even in the face of a growing intolerance of religion, we must as Catholics give witness. To fail to do so would be to fail in the charity we owe our neighbor. "Authentic witness," Pope Francis reminds us, "is one that does not contradict, by behavior or lifestyle, what is preached with the word and taught to others." (Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul, 2015)"

    1. Good for Wenski - that was an excellent catch. Thanks Yaya. (I just read the entire homily.)

  2. Nice that a Catholic priest is using the word queer...that intolerance from a priest of all people just breeds intolerance in turn for religion...

    On a side note Fr Douche is once again begging for handouts. Seems not enough of his faithful readers have been giving... Despite his rantings about fags and his bravado about guns.And we are getting close to the end of the month! You know those little plane trips do not come free what's next have to get up and go out and get a job !

    1. "Nice that a Catholic priest is using the word queer...that intolerance from a priest of all people just breeds intolerance in turn for religion."

      Yep ... ironic is it not? Someone who touts himself as a "faithful Catholic priest" and he uses such language.

      Matthew 15:10 Jesus called the crowd to him and said, “Listen and understand. What goes into a man’s mouth does not make him ‘unclean,’ but what comes out of his mouth, that is what makes him ‘unclean.’”

      Serious words to ponder indeed.

  3. And he shouldn't be that happy about what's happening Britain . With stocks plunging his readers may not have enough money to give them a free ride.

    1. He is faithful of course. Obviously, he hates the sin but loves the rat-bastard sinner.

    2. I was thinking of the many times I too have used bad language. In my youth it was the "cool" thing to do ... little did I know.

    4. I don't want to call him such names - I understood what you meant and how you meant it - but it would offend other readers.

      Please don't be offended for removing your text. Thanks my friend.

    5. Lol..Terry it takes more then that to offend me..I was going to remove like myself...my apologies.

      I will stand by Fr.Douche though!

    6. Thanks Mack - I knew you'd understand. Compared to some others I know, you are rather charitable about him.

      Have a great weekend!

    7. Lesson learned..don't post right after getting home from the brewpub..you'll regret it in the morning..which shows how old I am..rude posts are the only morning after regrets I have! You have a great one also!
