By Steven Ertelt, LifeNews - Democrats in the House Judiciary Committee today voted to impeach President Donald Trump for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, even though Republicans say the president and his 2016 presidential campaign are the real victims… The vote sends the articles to the House floor for a vote that Speaker Nancy Pelosi said will take place next week… Wisconsin Republican Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, who is pro-life, stated the concerns of Republicans and a majority of Americans about the sham impeachment vote and process… “I think it’s obvious to all America that this is a railroad job,” Sensenbrenner said. “The facts speak for themselves. There was no impeachable offense here.”
By Phil Lawler, Catholic Culture - “Catholicism, by which I mean real Catholicism, is a fighting faith,” writes David Carlin for The Catholic Thing. To which I would add that Catholicism is, or should be, an offensive rather than a defensive force. As followers of Christ we are not charged with preserving our own position. The Great Commission requires us to move always forward, capturing new ground (or rather more souls). Church history shows that when the Church is not actively engaged in the work of evangelization… the faith suffers. We are, as a faith, much better at offense than defense.
By Fr. Lawrence G. Lovasik, Catholic Exchange - Holy Communion preserves and increases the supernatural life of your soul. In the Holy Eucharist, Christ becomes present so that He may abide bodily among us by His Real Presence in our taber¬nacles, renew the Sacrifice of Calvary in an unbloody manner on our altars, and nourish our souls in Holy Communion… The Eucharist is not only a sacrifice, but a sacrament as well. As a sacrifice, it relates in the first instance to God; as a sacrament, to ourselves. Through the Blessed Sacrament God bestows upon us the grace by which we obtain supernatural life and are saved.
By William Kilpatrick, The Catholic Thing - Jump ahead to the present, and what do we find? Why, it’s a photo of Pope Francis kissing a well-known anti-Semite. No need to go digging to find it. In fact, there are several photos taken on several occasions of the pope embracing the Grand Imam of al-Azhar, Ahmed al-Tayyeb. Yet, the Grand Imam’s anti-Semitic views are no secret, and the pope must surely have been aware of them… During the Second Intifada, al-Tayyeb said that “The solution to Israeli terror lies in the proliferation of suicide attacks that spread terror into the hearts of Allah’s enemies.” He added, “the Palestinians have the right to blow up everything they want.”
