By Dan Burke, Roman Catholic Spiritual Direction - Patience is a virtue of primary importance and daily necessity. As we need bread to live, so every day, even every moment, we need patience, because every day and every moment brings with it its own trial. We become patient by making acts of patience, that is, by accustoming ourselves to accept peacefully all that contradicts us and makes us suffer.
By Emily Ward,CNSNews - Pope Francis’s “silence” on the sexual misconduct of former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick is “deafening,” said Catholic Women’s Forum Director Mary Hasson on Thursday, following a meeting the Pope held in Rome with U.S. Cardinal Daniel DiNardo and other prelates about sexual abuse and cover-up in the Catholic Church... “The Pope’s silence is deafening, and I worry that the cardinals are coming home empty-handed, with no further word on whether the Pope will pursue an official investigation,” Hasson said.
By Rebecca Hagelin, The Patriot Post - For a peek into what America may soon look like if citizens who value the U.S. Constitution and the rights it protects don’t show up to vote in the November elections, focus for a moment on the ugly chaos created by Marxist/socialist/feminist/Islamist “progressives” in Judge Brett Kavanuagh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
By Msgr. Charles Pope - We tend to lie to ourselves about many things; we are even “glad” at times to have others lie to us. This is especially true in matters related to flattery and vanity. Perhaps we can label these “vain lies.”.. There are other lies that are far more serious in their impact because they besmirch the truth that is necessary for us to thrive and even to be saved. Let’s call these “damnable lies.” Of these St. Paul warned,.. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear (2 Tim 4:3).
