The 'you can eat meat today' post.
Solemnity of the Sacred Heart on First Friday and no one mentions you can eat meat today. A glaring neglect by the spiritual advisory committee... it didn't even warrant a footnote. The Catholic blogisterium can be biased, going so far as to ignore whomever and whatever they choose whenever they choose, in an effort to promote their own, or gain donations for 'nursing school' or trips abroad ...
THIS JUST IN:
Christopher Ferrara and The Remnant receive approval and praise from Bishop Athanasius Schneider. - source
I am impressed. Seriously. I admire Bishop Athanasius Schneider and respect his fidelity to the Church and traditional Catholic teaching.
Dear Mr. Christopher A. Ferrara:
On May 9, 2016 you published on “The Remnant” website an open letter to me regarding the question of the Apostolic Exhortation “Amoris laetitia”.
As a bishop, I am grateful and at the same time encouraged to receive from a Catholic layman such a clear and beautiful manifestation of the “sensus fidei” regarding the Divine truth on marriage and the moral law.
I am agreeing with your observations as to those expressions in AL (“Amoris laetitia”), and especially in its VIII’s chapter, which are highly ambiguous and misleading. In using our reason and in respecting the proper sense of the words, one can hardly interpret some expressions in AL according to the holy immutable Tradition of the Church. - Finish reading here.
I'm stirred and shaken at the same time.
