This week Holy Mother the Church will celebrate the Queen-ship of Mary. The discrepancy about the Church and her teachings in comparison with the Neo-Modernists is that the Neo-Modernists say they are going back to Scripture and the Fathers but don’t; whereas the Catholic Church teachings do go back to Scripture and the Fathers of which Faithful Catholics uphold. This is especially clear in relation to Mary. Continue reading
One of the most common arguments in favor of the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the so-called demographic threat or demographic time-bomb . Proponents worry that if Israel continues to control the Palestinian territories, with or without formal annexation, the different birthrates of Jews and Arabs will eventually result in Jews being a minority in the territory under Israeli control. At that point Israel will no longer be a Jewish state — or, alternatively, will be a Jewish state with a non-Jewish majority that is disenfranchised because of its ethnic identity. There’s a word for that. I won’t say it, but I’ll note that it’s Afrikaans in origin. MORE
Golfers in Palmetto, Florida, could be forgiven for thinking they had stumbled off the course and into Jurassic Park at the weekend.
While playing a typical Sunday game at Buffalo Creek Golf Course, Charles Helms was able to get a video of a monster alligator casually strolling across the course.
The dinosaur-like gator looked even bigger when another man came into the frame to take a picture – but apparently he is quite a regular sight in the area. MORE
The massive swarm is so huge it has spread for 70 thousand hectares across farmland in southern Russia. MORE
NITZANA, Israel — Ahmed Abeltef joined the Israeli army two months ago and says he is proud to be serving his country. But when he goes on leave, Abeltef makes sure to change out of his army greens and into civilian clothing before reaching home.
The fear of wearing military fatigues in his home town stems from the fact that he is one of Israel’s approximately 260,000 Bedouins — a subgroup of the country’s Arab Muslim minority with its own distinct culture. MORE
Pope Francis says he has no intention of quitting the papacy — a possibility opened up by his predecessor Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI.
The pope, responding to a question from a young person at a Vatican event, said on Sunday “I never thought of quitting being pope, or of leaving because of the many responsibilities.”
The pope has previously said he envisioned a short papacy before going on “to the Father’s house,” but he has never specifically ruled out following in Benedict’s footsteps. Benedict retired in 2013, the first pope to step down in 600 years.
The pope spoke at a Vatican gathering for the Scholas Occurentes global educational initiative that he launched. George Clooney, accompanied by his wife Amal, and Richard Gere were honored for their contributions. SOURCE
“Gabriel’s Oboe” is the main theme for the 1986 film The Mission directed by Roland Joffé. The theme was written by Italian composer Ennio Morricone, and has since been arranged and performed several times by artists such as Yo-Yo Ma, Holly Gornik, and Brynjar Hoff, among others.
What goes on in the “gay straight alliance” clubs in high schools – and now in middle schools – across the country? What happens to kids that are persuaded to join them? We had a chance to see it up close – at one of their statewide events. And it’s worse than anyone realizes. MORE
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry. I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say. The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? Continue reading
ROME (Reuters) – Pope Francis on Sunday awarded medals to American actors Richard Gere and George Clooney and actress Salma Hayek at an event held at the Vatican to promote the work of a foundation inspired by the pontiff, Scholas Occurrentes. MORE
In what the Vatican is billing as a “summit on the migrant emergency,” Pope Francis met with a group of four hundred schoolchildren from the south of Italy on Saturday, assuring them that they have nothing to fear from migrants but should be reaching out to welcome them.
The students all came from the southern Italian region of Calabria, which has been among the areas hardest hit by the waves of migrants that daily reach Italy’s shores, mostly from sub-Saharan Africa. MORE

These two Sisters are members of a Traditional Catholic Religious Community, The Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen out of Spokane, Washington. They arrived in Boston in 2005 in response to a few families who were requesting the Traditional Latin Mass and the corresponding Catholic Life that accompanies the Mass. MORE
