President Donald Trump and Pope Francis smiling?

BLOGGER’S NOTE:  I guess “fake news” does it again.  The serious picture they talk about can be explained below from the Catholic League.  Looks to me like they look pretty happy about the world to me.  You big liberal news outlets might want to get it right?

Melania Trump and President Donald Trump

Yesterday, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump met His Holiness Pope Francis at the Vatican. The President said it was the “Honor of a lifetime.”

BLOGGER’S NOTE:  This blogger has been hearing a bunch of baloney about Donald and Melania throwing off some bad “vibes” during their trip to Rome.  This sure doesn’t look fake to me.

With ‘wars and rumors of wars’ dominating news of Syria and Russia, wouldn’t the 100th anniversary of Our Lady’s apparitions in Fatima have been a good occasion for the visiting Pope Francis to obey the Mother of God and consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart? Pope Francis didn’t think so. Instead he dragged Our Lady onto the Mercy Express and ignored her requests completely. Question of the year: If Syrian President Assad is ‘gassing his own people’, why do the two million Christians in Syria support him? Michael Matt discusses this and the canonization of Jacinta and Francisco–two of the three seers of Fatima.

Father Arturo Sosa, Jesuit


BLOGGER’S NOTE:  The Catholic Priesthood doesn’t belong to this world.  It is not a job title it is a vocation.  It has no relation to the worldly realm.  It does not belong to male or female because of the fact that it pesonifies a male—Jesus Christ.

It is bestowed on those who are male with no prejudice to females.  Males are In Personae Christi.  (In the Person of Christ. )  Satan maybe trying very hard to persuade the Church for this change but the Lord isn’t.

In the first quote below St. Anthony tells us how in these times we will “surrender to the spirit of the age”, thinking we must change the church to suit our time.  We must not change what He has decreed.  I beseech all of us to not “surrender to the age” and hold fast to His truths.

“St. Anthony of the Desert (4th Century) “Men will surrender to the spirit of the age.  The will say that if they had lived in our day, Faith would be simple and easy.  But in their day, they will say, things are complex; the Church must be bought up to date and made meaningful to the day’s problems.  When the Church and the World are one, then those days are at hand.  Because our Divine Master placed a barrier between His things and the things of this world.”

In the second quote below it is answered by non-Catholic Elworthy herself as to one reason why we cannot ordain women.  In a mysterious way the Catholic Church is a Supernatural Bride of the Bridegroom—- Jesus Christ. 

The professions she mentioned are of the world. 

The Catholic Church is in the world but not of it.  The Magesterial Priesthood is not the world it is in the world of Christ.

“At the conference, Elworthy voiced her sadness that the Church wasn’t more like other institutions when it comes to female collaboration. “All the major institutions that we live with now; the military, politics, business, even banking, have all acknowledged, and used and allowed to populate the top (positions) with females. And I’m just really sad that there’s this restriction in the Catholic Church.”
