From Grace Force 2020 54 Rosary Novena 

“A man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls.” (Proverbs 25:28)

“No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.” (1 Corinthians 10:13)

“But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.” (1 Corinthians 9:27)
HEROES’ WORDS
“He who is chaste in flesh should not be proud, for he should know that he owes the gift of continence to another.” -Pope St. Clement I

“I thought that continence was a matter of our own strength, and I knew that I had not the strength: for in my utter foolishness I did not know the word of your Scripture that none can be continent unless you give it.” -St. Augustine

“Great are those two gifts, wisdom and continence: wisdom, forsooth, whereby we are formed in the knowledge of God; continence whereby we are not conformed to this world.” -St. Augustine
MEDITATION
Fruit of Self-Control (or Continence): The virtue by which a person controls the unruly movements of sexual desire or other bodily emotions. It is connected with the virtue of temperance. It generally means the chastity to be observed by the unmarried. But it may also refer to the abstinence, in marriage, voluntarily agreed upon by both parties or forced by circumstances to abstain from marital intercourse. (Fr. John Hardon, Modern Catholic Dictionary)

“Jason Evert is an expert on the Catholic teaching on chastity. He believes those who experience gender dysphoria deserve respect and compassion but must be called to live a life free of sin.”

Translated from the French article after this article into English: 

For several years, the report has been scathing: persecuting a Christian is the favorite game of some. This terror is seen all over the world, in China and in North Korea, the heirs of the glorious hours of the Communist powers continue the low works of their ascendants. In South America, anti-fascist guerrillas hunt down the faithful, whom they assimilate to the capitalist demon. In Africa, in Europe too, Christians are victims of persecution in the name of Islam. The latest figures from the Doors Open NGO Global Persecution of Christians Index are catastrophic. Whereas in 2018, 245 million people were victims of persecution worldwide, in 2019, 260 million people are persecuted because they are Christians … Even if this increase can be put into perspective in light of the drop in the number of people killed (4,305 in 2018, against 2,983 in 2019), it is clear that if we take a global vision and not country by country or region by region , Christians are the most persecuted in the world. Indeed, the crime committed against Rohingyas is unacceptable and unforgivable, but it is confined to Burma. Indeed, the conflicts between Sikhs and Muslims on the one hand and between Shiites and Sunnis in several countries, but also crimes against Yazidis, are just as heinous and unacceptable but they remain limited to a few countries.Every day, very many Christians are persecuted in the world, but as if by magic, a deafening silence covers the atrocities against the faithful; this silence is in the image of the western hypocrisy which bends in front of Islam. Indeed, while Colombia, which is overwhelmingly Catholic, comes in 41st position in the countries where the number of these persecutions is the highest, the top 5 counts Pakistan, Libya, Somalia and Afghanistan, or 4 countries out of 5 Muslims. Burkina Faso, Niger and Cameroon enter the classification and, more generally, persecution is increasing in Africa, especially in West, where, according to the report published by Doors Open, “Islamic extremism is the mechanism of persecution prevailing in these countries ”.Above all, let’s not stigmatize.

“The final document of the Amazon synod, after voting this afternoon on each individual paragraph, was passed in its entirety. A 2/3 majority was required for passage. Pray Tell offers a quick, unofficial translation from the Spanish of articles 116-119 which treats inculturation of the liturgy. (Corrections and improvements from readers are welcome.) The text is noteworthy for being carefully written and based upon the prescriptions of the Second Vatican Council and the teaching of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. This document now goes to Pope Francis, who has final authority to accept or adopt any of its recommendations.”

“Part I: Why Do We Need Confession and What Is Mortal Sin?
If you know Part I, you can skip to Part II.
We are all born in original sin, meaning the status quo of even the cutest baby on earth before baptism has natural goodness but no supernatural goodness. Still, God has a plan of a supernatural beatitude planned for that baby in heaven in both body and soul. Because transmitted original sin separates us all from God, it would take a great sacrifice of a God-man to reconcile any person born in sin: God, because only a pure and blameless and boundless sacrifice can appease an infinite offense against an infinitely good God. Man, because a sacrifice of man is needed since “without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins.”—Hb 9:22. Thus, the only thing that can reconcile us sinners to God is a God-man, Jesus Christ on His cross. The merits of His Passion, Death and Resurrection are communicated first by baptism (1 Pt 3:21) and later confession of actual sins to a priest (Jn 20:22-23.)”

Austen_Ivereigh_810_500_75_s_c1

“Speaking about those who he holds as resisting Pope Francis, Ivereigh points especially to the circle around Pope emeritus Benedict XVI, and most especially to Cardinal Gerhard Müller — the former prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith — whom he describes as a “leader” of the opposition.

“We have to find a way to control his [Benedict’s] court, which is at this moment a source of scandal and of division,” he said.”

On Organ Donation E. Christian Brugger TUESDAY, MAY 7, 2019 Note: A reader sent in the query below, which we thought deserved a careful reply by a reliable bioethicist. Question: My nurse friend says that major organs can’t be donated unless donors are alive, thus anaesthetic is given at the time of retrieval. If this is correct, […]

via In the light of new empirical evidence, we question a provisional judgment of a pope, especially when that judgment is made in a realm – such as medical science – over which he has no divinely mandated authority, it is certainly not unfaithful. — ABYSSUS ABYSSUM INVOCAT / DEEP CALLS TO DEEP

Living the Truth the Church Teaches

“He that takes truth for his guide, and duty for his end, may safely trust to God’s providence to lead him aright.” - Blaise Pascal. "There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" – George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. We live in a “post-truth” world. According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their low information tabloid reality show news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting – this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." – George Orwell “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” ― Soren Kierkegaard
