Apostolic_Pardon_Card_1024x1024

“I have on occasion written about the important Apostolic Pardon or also Blessing, to be imparted to a person who is close to death.

The Apostolic Pardon imparts to a person who is properly disposed, please God through the last sacraments, a plenary indulgence (Enchiridion Indulgentiarum 28).  Hence, all temporal punishment due to sin is remitted to that person through the exercise of the “keys” by the Church and by the application of the merits of Christ and His saints to the person who is dying.”

“Friends, don’t be afraid to make yourselves and your concerns and your aspirations known to your pastors.   It could make a difference.   Be always kind and respectful, of course, as well as brief.”

An Apostolic Exhortation to Catholic Men, by Bp. Thomas J. Olmsted, Diocese of Phoenix, Arizona

Source: Into the Breach

Proverbs tells us: “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another” (27:17). I call on each of our priests and deacons to draw men together in their parishes and to begin to rebuild a vibrant and transforming Catholic fraternity. I call on laymen to form small fellowship groups for mutual support and growth in the faith. There is no friendship like having a friend in Christ.

NOTE:  This is an important read for all Catholics.

The Council of Trent stated: “Matrimony is a holy thing and is to be treated in a holy manner.” One way to see its holiness is by examining its place in the hierarchy of God’s plan. The Fathers and the Doctors of the Church as well as many subsequent teachings clearly show an connection between virginity/celibacy and holy matrimony with virginity and celibacy being placed above and considered more excellent than marriage. When virginity and celibacy are in place, they keep marriage in its proper place. They elevate marriage. They help keep marriage holy. But, sad to say, most today do not appreciate virginity…and as a result, marriage suffers a reduction and impoverishment. We are in a huge tug of war on the matter of holy matrimony as we have never been heretofore…and we are losing the battle because we are lacking our immoveable anchor … celibacy and virginity.
