Pray AND Take a Stand for Our Country

Join the Conversation with Cardinal Raymond Burke! Dear Friend, ~ Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. This month’s edition of Conversations with Cardinal Burke comes during dynamic, intense and trying times effecting every one of us. I imagine you are as bewildered as I am seeing the confluence of crises and overlapping emergencies erupting in 2020. And could you imagine even ten or fifteen years ago that we would see an anti-American movement where people carry a disdain for standing for the National Anthem or having schoolchildren recite in class the Pledge of Allegiance?  Much less, a shocking degree of disregard for law and order in society. It is becoming more apparent the world has enjoyed unprecedented economic development and relative peace and stability as a result of having international order. The current order was born from the ashes of the second world war. This order was born from the ashes of the first world war and was hard earned costing the world one hundred and fifty million lives who were lost over the course of the 31-year period of what was a great power war from 1914-1945. Two other examples...

How God Heals Us, Even in the Midst of Illness

St. John of Avila offers his advice and comfort to those who are ill. While the doctor of the Church wrote this centuries ago, St. John’s words are now more relevant than ever.

Love Your Priests

When I saw the video of Fr. Stephen Schumacher from the Archdiocese of St. Louis standing in front of the city’s statue of St. Louis, while surrounded by an angry mob, I knew it was a pivotal moment for priests in this country. This young priest attempted to engage with an angry mob set on destroying a statue of a saint they know nothing about, which was evidenced by the ignorance being shouted at him as he attempted to offer a history lesson about the king and saint.  As radical secularism continues her march towards the Church, propelled forward by the diabolical forces that ultimately fuel such rabid hatred, priests will be asked to defend the truth in ways that have been unknown in this country during our lifetime. Fr. Schumacher showed the angry mob and the world what it is to stand with and in Christ as a Catholic priest, even in dangerous situations. He put his life in danger in order to spread the Good News. The priesthood has suffered tremendously under the weight of the sex abuse scandals for the last 18 years. It has suffered even longer under those who sought to make the priesthood...

Archbishop Wenski: US Supreme Court ruling ‘a great thing for religious liberty’ – Vatican News

Archbishop Wenski: US Supreme Court ruling ‘a great thing for religious liberty’ The US Bishops’ Chairman for Religious Liberty reacts to the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in favor of religiously-affiliated schools saying it “underscores the right of people of faith.” By Fr. Benedict Mayaki, SJ The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday against a Montana state constitutional provision that barred aid to religiously-affiliated schools solely because of their religious character. This ruling means that states cannot cut religious schools out of programs that send public money to private education. It also opens the door to parents in Montana seeking to use a tax credit scholarship program to send their children to private schools.

Keep Whacking Those Moles!

When the Supreme Court sided with the abortion lobby this month, we were all disappointed. But the work of changing laws, hearts and minds on the abortion issue was never being done by the Supreme Court anyway—they’ve only messed everything up (think Roe v. Wade). It’s really been we the people, by God’s grace, who have been hard at work to stop the relentless push by the abortion lobby to destroy the lives of women and their babies. And the abortion lobby knows it. Instead of savoring the spoils of their Court victory, they chose to pen an article in the Washington Post—to talk about how worried they are about you. They believe you are “playing whack-a-mole” to pound out their abortion efforts in the states. And they’re right! You—and hundreds of thousands of others like you—are electing pro-life lawmakers, taking action, and funding efforts to stop the abortion lobby across the country. And it’s working! In the article, they fretted that: “Relentless state-by-state attacks on abortion are only ratcheting up.” And they worried about these numbers: 450 state laws were passed to restrict abortion over the past decade 90% of U.S. counties have no abortion facility 9 states banned abortions at 6 weeks, the point...
