Fr. Paul D. Scalia: Loaves, Fish, and Shepherds

By Fr. Paul D. Scalia, The Catholic Thing – Our Lord’s multiplication of the loaves and fish occupies a privileged place in the list of miracles.

It points us to the Eucharist, the source and summit of our faith. Thus, in this scene our Lord announces the inestimable gift of the Eucharist. In his treatment of the Apostles, He also outlines how the Church’s Shepherds are to continue nourishing us.

Commentary: Capita Mortua, by Milo Yiannopoulos

By Milo Yiannopoulos, Church Militant – Our bishops serve Satan. That’s the heartbreaking but inescapable conclusion of the past half-century’s horrors.
