Bishop W. Francis Malooly of Baltimore is to take over the Diocese of Wilmington on September 8th. Please pray for the Bishop! He needs all the prayers and support that he can receive!
This week, Archbishop O'Brien, after citing the previous column on the role that law plays in our lives, discusses Humanae Vitae and its implications for today in a column entitled, "Work Ardently and Incessantly." He writes,
Most in our culture, including Catholics, see laws as threatening their freedom, limiting rightful options, interfering with their privacy. No dancing in the street here!
Our theology, on the other hand, sees man wounded by sin and in need of salvation. Divine help comes to us in Christ through the law that guides us and the grace that sustains us.
And there is more. The dissent which followed Humanae Vitae has itself spawned a generation of Catholic thinkers and theologians who have claimed that not only was the Church wrong about the Pill, it is wrong about sterilization, wrong about masturbation, and wrong about homosexuality and same-sex marriage. And who can deny that the widespread acceptance and promotion of contraception is not largely responsible for cohabitation before marriage and so called “casual sex.” Perhaps the greatest tragedy is the hard heartedness which goes so far as to promote abortion if contraception “fails.”This is a "must read!"
Ample research increasingly offers objective evidence that “the Pill’s” contraceptive-rights movement that has fueled our sexual revolution has spurred a dramatic increase in divorce, single parenthood and a “fatherless America,” sexually transmitted diseases and, simply, carefree promiscuity. (See, for example, First Things, August/September 2008, “The Vindication of Humanae Vitae,” by Mary Eberstadt.)
For those who are not aware of this, the Archbishop wrote a letter to every Pastor last weekend and asked each Parish to form a Respect Life Committee and made some excellent suggestions on what issues to tackle or steps to take. My Parish received the letter in the weekly bulletin. Bravo, your Excellency!

Mr. Samuel Wanjiru just won the first marathon for the Kenyans ever in Olympic history. It was incredibly moving to see Mr. Wanjiru drop to his knees at the finish, bow in prayer and then to make the Sign of the Cross. That is a moment indelibly etched in my memory.
Hearty congratulations to Kenya and to Mr. Wanjiru and his Christ-like witness!
You can't get any better than that.
First Things: On the Square >> Vote for Real Hope and Change by Charles J. Chaput, Archbishop of Denver
Obviously, we have other important issues facing us this fall: the economy, the war in Iraq, immigration justice. But we can’t build a healthy society while ignoring the routine and very profitable legalized homicide that goes on every day against America’s unborn children. The right to life is foundational. Every other right depends on it. Efforts to reduce abortions, or to create alternatives to abortion, or to foster an environment where more women will choose to keep their unborn child, can have great merit—but not if they serve to cover over or distract from the brutality and fundamental injustice of abortion itself. We should remember that one of the crucial things that set early Christians apart from the pagan culture around them was their rejection of abortion and infanticide. Yet for thirty-five years I’ve watched prominent “pro-choice” Catholics justify themselves with the kind of moral and verbal gymnastics that should qualify as an Olympic event. All they’ve really done is capitulate to Roe v. Wade.Straight talk from a Shepherd...

- I just discovered this evening that Saint Alphonsus Church in Baltimore must have failed to renew its domain name or is in the process of moving to a new server. The link that was present for so long now takes one to a site that advertises homes. As a result, I have gone into the FAQs, Visitors Ask About the TLM, etc. and the link in the right margin and changed the URL with this link. This link is from the Archdiocese of Baltimore and has all the information necessary.
- Many are checking regularly about St. Bartholomew's in Manchester, MD. The TLM was a great success, but it appears that it will be an occasional event. I have heard nothing further on this and know that the Pastor is a member of the Faculty at Mt. St. Mary's. To say he is busy is an understatement.
- Many are also checking on the TLM that was being held on a fairly regular basis at Saint James the Greater in WV. From what I have heard, the Pastor learned to say the TLM but I believe his Associate was transferred. I know that there is a stable group at that Parish that really wants the TLM. If I hear anything more, I'll pass it on.
- Finally, the TLM group on the Eastern Shore of MD is still hoping to get a regular TLM in Maryland in Salisbury or Easton or Cambridge. The Eastern Shore is encompassed by the Diocese of Wilmington. Since H.E. Bishop Malooly will be the Ordinary when he is installed soon, I don't know whether the situation regarding the TLM will change. If I hear, I will pass it along.

Here is the post by Olson with a link to this article.
...It is certainly important that we not become excessively consumed or obsessed by the presence and activity of the evil one but it is also most important that we not be oblivious to his presence or activity, for it is real. All one needs to do is look at the state of moral confusion which reigns in our present society. The killing of the sick or elderly because they want it is being promoted as some kind of right or good but this can be so only in the topsy-turvy world of Screwtape and Wormwood. When taking the life of an innocent pre-born child is seen as right and a right and when the preservation of precisely that right becomes the object of a political campaign, I suspect the letter from Screwtape to the demon master of that campaign would be filled with praise. When a whole society begins to question whether marriage really requires one man and one woman, faithfully committed to each other in an exclusive and child-centered relationship, Satan must be very pleased indeed...

If my words don’t conjure it up for you, try Milton’s instead. You don’t have to rely on finding the time and energy and resolve dutifully to read a “forbidding” text. No; listen to it instead. Hear the words ring, hear the clang of battle, the cries of the vanquished. Enter, almost as a participant, a grand saga that lifts you out of the humdrum, the daily.
Do yourself a favor before this summer comes to an end. If you don’t want to try Paradise Lost, then try the Aeneid. If not that, then how about the Iliad, or the Divine Comedy? Great intellectual and spiritual stimulation and wonderful adventures await you. It’s not too late for those of us who have graduated from high school into the work-a-day world. Try one of these great books on tape.

The Black Biretta: Catholics who support abortion should not receive Communion, says Archbishop Burke
To illustrate his point, he referred to “public officials who, with knowledge and consent, uphold actions that are against the Divine and Eternal moral law. For example, if they support abortion, which entails the taking of innocent and defenseless human lives. A person who commits sin in this way should be publicly admonished in such a way as to not receive Communion until he or she has reformed his life,” the archbishop said.
“If a person who has been admonished persists in public mortal sin and attempts to receive Communion, the minister of the Eucharist has the obligation to deny it to him. Why? Above all, for the salvation of that person, preventing him from committing a sacrilege,” he added.

Extraordinary Form workshop for priests to be held in the Archdiocese of WashingtonPlease make arrangements ASAP!
September 9, 10 and 11 (Tues-Thurs)
Church of Saint Mary
Those interested should contact Fr Mark Knestout, Office of Worship, 301.833.4594, email email@example.com or Fr. Thomas LaHood, 301.475.8403, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Workshop is to be given by Fr Victor Szczurek, O. Praem., of Saint Michael’s Abbey in Orange, California.
In the Catholic press, we find three recurring notions, though seldom considered together and distinguished. They are persecution, evangelization, and dialogue. The Church is of its nature “missionary.” That is, the “Go forth and teach all nations” is not just a pious exhortation. Looking at the world with eyes of cold realism, however, we can recognize that by far the greater part of the world, after two millennia, remains to be evangelized and converted by missionary activity. Evidently, tremendous obstacles stand in the way of peacefully and calmly presenting the case for Catholicism.I leave the rest for you to discover...
However, we are supposed to “evangelize,” not “proselytize.” This latter word does not have a bad name in the dictionary. But it has become currently a big political sin. It implies using dubious methods to achieve conversion, like brain washing. It assumes that no one can possibly change religions on any other grounds but because of such overt or covert coercion. We Catholics insist we do not proselytize, but we do evangelize. The purpose of evangelization is to convert people to the faith, but through means that are open, sensible, and free. “Proselytism” had gone the way of “propaganda,” both originally good words.

Tomorrow is the Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost in the Traditional Calendar. I know that because this link is present in the right margin and leads to the F.S.S.P.'s 2008 Liturgical Calendar.
Some are looking for a full online version of the Latin Propers. One does not exist except in a written Missal such as the Baronius, Angelus, or one of those available from Aquinas and More. However, this site, the Traditional Latin Rite Missal Project (also found in the right margin) is the ongoing apostolate of one person who intends to put the entire Missal online.
There is another site which is quite beautiful and maintained daily by a Catholic Deacon. It is the Traditional Latin Mass Propers in English site (and also found in the right margin). This site has the advantage of offering a "widget" which allows you to obtain updates each day for the Traditional Mass.
I hope that helps some who are seeking!

Check out this outstanding series... Here is a link to the "Since You Asked Guide" in PDF format.
The highly anticipated series is finally available! Consisting of nineteen hours and almost 250 questions answered by Father John Corapi, this new series was video taped at events all over the United States.
“Educational, Inspirational, Entertaining, Refreshing, Courageous, So easy to understand, and It’s about time!”—These are just a few of the comments we have received from previews of this exciting new series, almost two years in the making.
Hundreds and hundreds of man-hours were spent traveling to events throughout the United States, on videography, editing, arranging, and producing in order to bring you this best ever collection of your questions answered by Fr. John Corapi.
Almost 19 full hours of DVD video or CD audio indexed for ease of study, this is the greatest collection of general questions asked of Fr. John Corapi at several conferences and parishes throughout the United States. This is not a compilation of past question and answer formats. This is all new footage shot during Father’s travels in the year 2007.
We have no doubt that you will learn a great deal from Fr. Corapi’s responses to these candid, honest, and intelligent questions. You will find that you are learning while enjoying Father’s clear, simple, humorous, and direct way of conveying the Church’s teaching. He even gives his personal opinion in a few cases, answering personal questions from a few folks that might not have been the most supportive or friendly folks. “That doesn’t matter,” Father says. “I’ve always believed a question is a sign of intelligence, a sign you want to know something.” Even in the rare cases where a question or two might have been a sign of something less than intelligence, Fr. John gives them all they asked for and more.
Some of these questions are hard-nosed and definitely controversial. Fr. Corapi has never been accused of being subtle. When he began this project, Father told his team of co-workers, “This will make us a lot of friends, and a lot of enemies. It’ll prove we’re doing something right!”

MN: Years ago, Irving Kristol wrote in Commentary that secularism as a philosophy is dead, even though its after-effects still advance through our major institutions. It is too shallow to deal with human tragedy, for it has essentially posited that we humans are meaningless creatures, without purpose, a result of chance. Most people cannot put up with the hardships of life if their struggle is meaningless and without nobility. Secularism, therefore, cannot sustain a civilization. More recently, the German philosopher and public atheist Jurgen Habermas wrote that after September 11, 2001, he felt for the first time that secularists are a small island in a turbulent sea of religion.Marvelous interview!
