You all will love this homily. It is very informative and I think you will get something out of this no matter where you are spiritually. 

 

P.S. In case you missed Mass today, below is an awesome livestream site I found that has Masses from a few different places. The one in Warrington, England already has today's Mass recorded and uploaded. Obviously this is nothing compared to actually attending Mass but if for some reason you couldn't, this is better than nothing since you can follow along and at least participate in a spiritual communion with our Lord.

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You have already come, and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

In case you all didn't know, Jan Dismas Zelenka was a wonderful Catholic composer who took his faith very seriously. He wrote very beautiful baroque-era music at a skill level comparable to J.S. Bach. For those of you who love J.S. Bach's music but aren't too keen on listening to music written by a Lutheran, Zelenka has a lot of beautiful works to listen to. 

 

Here is a beautiful example I was listening to earlier today.

"Sacrificium Deo spiritus contribulatus cor contritum et humiliatum Deus non spernet"

 

Hope you enjoy this small example of the beautiful music that God, through his beautiful Catholic Church, has inspired.

Hello Everyone, 

 

 

You might find these lectures interesting. The first one is about the 4 marks of the Church, that is One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic. 

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nh56VAotyKw

 

 

The second one is regarding Apostolicity and Vatican I teachings on infallibility and how modern day people contradict these Vatican I teachings and substitute their own based on their own opinions.

Enjoy!

I heard an interesting parable today. I figured it would be a good idea to share it although I am sure many of you have already read it or heard it. This is not the gospel of Our Lord, nor is it from the Church. It is simply an interesting parable that may help you see things differently or at minimum provide you with some entertainment. 

 

 

 

"Once upon a time there was a woman, and she was wicked as wicked could be, and she died. And not one good deed was left behind her. The devils took her and threw her into the lake of fire. And her guardian angel stood thinking: what good deed of hers can I remember to tell God?

Then he remembered and said to God, "Once she pulled up an onion and gave it to a beggar woman."

And God answered, "Now take that same onion, hold it out to her in the lake, let her take hold of it, and pull, and if you pull her out of the lake, she can go to paradise, but if the onion breaks, she can stay where she is."

The angel ran to the woman and held out the onion to her, "Here, woman," he said, "take hold of it and I'll pull!"

And he began pulling carefully , and had almost pulled her all the way out, when other sinners in the lake saw her being pulled out and all began holding on to her so as to be pulled out with her. But the woman was wicked as wicked could be, and she began to kick them with her feet: "It's me who's getting pulled out, not you; it's my onion not yours!"

No sooner did she say it than the onion broke. And the woman fell back into the lake and is burning there to this day. And the angel wept and went away. "

I have been a musician for a while and I can say that I have noticed that music can serve, and I think frequently serves as a way of connecting to a different realm for lack of a better way to describe it. For this reason I think most music should be avoided if possible. Music can move the passions in way that may not be good for us spiritually. I don't mean solely the language either. Music, like most created things we allow into our minds and bodies, has an effect. Id say for the most part music of  the modern day is like a numbing venom. It is subtle and it dulls the senses so you don't realize a  demonic force is being summoned. I do believe that most popular music is demonic in nature. One need only listen to many of the songs that skyrocket certain people into stardom, most of these songs are blatantly anti-Christian and many times mention things like selling one's soul, talking with lucifer, casting spells, opening doors (doors are quite important to the demonic it seems), or at minimum promote satanism. 

You may like some of this music, you may think it is no harm, but trust me when I say that it is a gateway to the demonic. Songs are basically prayers, and as you are aware that our beautiful Catholic prayers are effective, so are these evil songs. One thing I have noticed is that more work a musician is doing for the evil one, the more succesful they are. I have listened to music where the singer essentially outlines his dealings with satan, and explains how to give your soul away. I feel like the early and medeival Church knew about this, just look at gregorian chant. Gregorian chant is so perfect and beautiful. It glorifies God and never takes away from the Mass. You know those guys were aware of the power of music. 

Long story short, don't listen to modern music no matter how much you ilke it. You might as well be playing with a ouija board. The Church has a rich deposit of music, both in the form of chant and all the way up to the Baroque era (I wouldnt recommend anything baroque for Mass though, since it takes away attention from our lord). Also avoid VII hymns since it seems many of them have a once saved always saved protestant vibe going on.

Anyway let me know what you all think, if you want.

Someone recently brought to my attention the possible moral issues with vaccines and since then I have been doing some research. I have found many different websites but thought I would share this with the group. Let me know what you all think. The article linked is from the Pontifica Academia
Pro Vita.

P.S. This article seems to contradict the pseudo-dionysian principle of the integral good, although I could be wrong.

I can't help but notice how much humility is lacking amongst the younger members on this website. It seems like mostly everyone I have corresponded with up to this point is quite prideful. They want someone to be exactly how they picture in the fantasy they have in their mind, and think that fantasy of theirs is somehow tied in with Church doctrine. They are so closed to any type of instruction , any type of opposing ideas, anything that challenges them to maybe step outside of their comfort zone it makes me wonder if they are even firm in their faith. How is anyone going to get purified purgatively if they shut out anyone who is different from them? At minimum have the charity to explain your beliefs and try and teach, if you are so sure your ideas are necessary for salvation. Before I found my way back to the Church I dated non Catholic and even atheist women. I must say that the people I have encountered on this website are just as reluctant to sacrifice their wants and themselves for others , if not more so, which is crazy because they also expect to be supported financially. Going to tlm and praying a Rosary only predispose you to grace, you have to actually accept that grace and build virtue with plain old hard work and self sacrifice. 

Also, it seems most here have their own take on the Church's teachings which is baffling to me since we are all laity and don't have the authority to interpret such things. Sounds like protestantism to me. You know we are in strange times when the people who think they are the most submissive to the Church's teachings are the most schizmatic and spiritually prideful of the bunch.
