Biden as an “Authoritative Type”, by Hadley Arkes

By Hadley Arkes, The Catholic Thing – Biden has been nothing if not a weathervane for winds blowing in his party, and that party has become ever more aggressive on the matter of abortion, brooking virtually no limits on that killing, even at the point of birth for babies who survive the abortions. And yet, nothing could be more central in the moral teaching of the Church – no, not climate change or the ravages of air-conditioning – than the concern for the meaning of the “human person,” that being who is both the subject of the law and the prime object of its protection.

New Pro-Life Congresswoman Vows to Stand Against The Squad’s Leftist Agenda

By Virginia Allen, LifeNews – Freshman Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, R-N.Y., is one of several new members of Congress who have formed the “Freedom Force.” The group of conservative Republican leaders says it will stand against the far-left agenda being promoted by the so-called squad led by fellow New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other liberal Democrats… Malliotakis is the daughter of Greek and Cuban immigrants and says she decided to run for Congress when she saw the damage progressive policies were having on her state and across America.

The Most Important Question About the 2020 Election, by Dennis Prager

By Dennis Prager, Patriot Post – The anomalies: In 132 years, no president has received more votes in his run for reelection and lost. Yet Donald Trump received 10 million more votes in 2020 than in 2016 — and lost… Trump won 18 of the 19 counties both Democrats and Republicans regard as the “bellwether” counties that virtually always go with the outcome of presidential elections. Yet he lost… He won four bellwether states — Florida, Ohio, Iowa and North Carolina. Yet he lost… Republicans held onto all the House seats they were defending and gained another 13 seats. Yet, Trump lost.

Daily Scripture Reading and Meditation: Whoever Does the Will of God Is My Brother and Sister

Author Don Schwager, Servants of the Word – Mark 3:31-35 – And his mother and his brothers came; and standing outside they sent to him and called him. And a crowd was sitting about him; and they said to him, “Your mother and your brothers are outside, asking for you.” And he replied, “Who are my mother and my brothers?” And looking around on those who sat about him, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers! Whoever does the will of God is my brother, and sister, and mother.”

Our Lady of La Salette: Does She Speak to Our Present Time? by Mary Hansen

By Mary Hansen, OnePeterFive – The secrets which were written down by Melanie (at La Salette) were approved by the bishop of Lecce, France, in 1879. The secrets would predict a future chastisement and a worldwide apostasy, particularly on the part of the clergy… The priests, ministers of my Son, by their wicked lives, by their irreverence and their impiety in the celebration of the holy mysteries, by their love of money, their love of honors and pleasures, have become cesspools of impurity. Woe to the priests and to those dedicated to God who by their unfaithfulness and their wicked lives are crucifying my Son again!

Bishops Must Act—Not Just Talk—About Biden’s Abortion Advocacy, by Phil Lawler

By Phil Lawler, Catholic Culture – Spare me, please, from the excited praise of “courageous” American bishops who have issued statements saying that abortion advocacy by President Biden (and other Catholic politicians) is incompatible with the Catholic faith… Of course it’s incompatible with our faith. Everyone knows that. Is it really “courageous” to affirm what everyone already knows? Perhaps it would make more sense— and more difference— to bemoan the cowardice of bishops who fail to reaffirm the obvious.

Why St. Joseph is Called the “Terror of Demons”, by Philip Kosloski

By Philip Kosloski, Aleteia – St. Joseph’s intercession against demons is not well-documented, but has been largely been proven by experience… For example, in the early 20th-century book Go to Joseph, Our Unfailing Protector, the author gives a brief summary of how missionaries invoked his intercession to drive out demonic influences… Sacred writers agree in saying that the intercession of St. Joseph is an efficacious means of overthrowing the tyranny of Satan and propagating the kingdom of Jesus Christ.

The Catholic Left Wants In On the Cancel Culture, by John-Henry Westen

By John-Henry Westen, LifeSiteNews – Biden’s self-professed Catholicism has become a major focus of the media, and thus the example of anti-Catholic so-called Catholicism is being mainstreamed. They followed him out of Sunday Mass yesterday, his big push for abortion Friday on the anniversary of Roe v Wade made headlines everywhere, now we learn that the young poet which created such a stir at the inauguration went to Catholic school.
