Down in the catacombs, Michael Matt discusses the case of a young priest in Minnesota who’s taking heat for firing “married” homosexual musicians in his parish. The parish is divided, the media are outraged, and the faithful are confused. Whose fault is this? The priest’s? No, he’s just doing his job. The gay musicians’? No, not really—they’ve been working in the same parish for over ten years, and nobody objected. Michael calls on Catholics—liberal and conservative alike–to demand that the ‘Church of Accompaniment’ either edit and remove the Catechism of the Catholic Church’s moral teaching on this question….or enforce it. There is no other way. Hate has nothing to do with it. Padre Pio and Pope John Paul were pretty clear on this question too, by the way. Are we to conclude that they too were intolerant, non-inclusive haters? How long does the madness go on before Catholics demand answers from our feckless priests, bishops and popes?

“Novelist William Styron — whose memoir Darkness Visible represents one of the best first-person attempts to describe the experience of depression — complains that the very word “depression” is a pale and inadequate term for such a terrible affliction. It is a pedestrian noun that typically represents a dip in the road or an economic downturn. Styron prefers the older term “melancholia,” which conjures images of a thick, black fog that descends on the mind and saps the body of all vitality.Indeed, the title of his book — Darkness Visible — comes from Milton’s description of hell in Paradise Lost. We’re not talking about hitting a rough patch in life or the everyday blues that we all experience from time to time. We are talking about a serious, potentially fatal, disorder of mind and brain.

Fortunately, in most cases, depression is amendable to treatment. Because the illness is complex — involving biological, psychological, social, relational and, in some cases, behavioral and spiritual factors — the treatment likewise can be complex. Medications may have a very important role, but so do psychotherapy, behavioral approaches, social support and spiritual direction. (I attempt to describe these multiple perspectives for understanding and overcoming depression in my book, The Catholic Guide to Depression.)”

On Those Weirdo Trad Parishes

Trad Parishes………………….

A Blog for Dallas Area Catholics

Cliches exist because they often serve as a sort of shorthand for truth, an often glib but also uncannily accurate description of a place, an event, a tendency, etc.  Now, cliches can serve to represent and advance unfair bias, and often do, and they can badly misrepresent and miss vital nuance.  But having said that, the cliche of the mean ‘ol trad Catholic is probably the dominant, knee jerk reaction we trads have to contend with.  And, not entirely unfairly, it must probably be said.

How has this come about?  Likewise, what about the trad cliche of the silly, far from groovy, get over the 60s hippy dippy happy clappy define your own truth Novus Ordo type?  How true are these descriptions, and from where might they stem?

My new sole source for blogging material, Tumblar House, has some answers below, which I found pretty insightful.  In this case, I…

The “books”………………………………

A Blog for Dallas Area Catholics

This news is almost a month old, but I think the implications are plain – once again, a leftist ecclesiastic demanding a “poorer church,” a “church of accompaniment” – has been found personally enriching himself at Church expense.  Or, at least, there is substantial evidence of such.  Even more, this enrichment seems to be directly tied to personal immorality of the type practiced in Sodom and Gomorrah, and seems to make plain why these leftist cardinals and other apparatchiks in the Church seek to implode the current moral edifice of the Faith, and replace it with one that is conducive to progressive mores.

There is a long article below, but the implications are damning, both for Rodriguez-Maradiaga, and for Francis, who has apparently sat on this information for over 6 months while deciding how to treat with one of his closest advisers and allies (my emphasis and comments):
