NCAA Doubles Down on Woke, by Thomas Gallatin

By Thomas Gallatin, Patriot Post – It’s banning championships and tournaments from being held in states that enact laws governing sports by biology… When it comes to competitive fairness and preserving women’s athletics, the NCAA has declared it will do no such thing. In a recently released statement, the NCAA said it “firmly and unequivocally” supports the inclusion of biological males who “identify” as female in women’s sports.

Daily Scripture Reading and Meditation: The Miraculous Sign of Jesus

Author Don Schwager, Servants of the Word – John 6:1-15 – After this Jesus went to the other side of the Sea of Galilee, which is the Sea of Tiberias. And a multitude followed him, because they saw the signs which he did on those who were diseased.

On banning the Tridentine liturgy, and selling the Edsel, By Phil Lawler

By Phil Lawler, Catholic Culture – We’ve been hearing the claims for years now: “The Tridentine rite is unattractive.” “Young people are turned off by the old Latin Mass.” “Nobody wants it.”..

He’ll laugh, of course.

Democrats Have Gone Full-On Dictator Mode, by Mike Huckabee

By Mike Huckabee, The Stream – And so, some Congressional Democrats have gone full-on dictator mode and today  introduced a bill to expand the Supreme Court to 13 Justices. This scheme known as “court-packing” (as usual, they’re trying to redefine the term, but we use words appropriately around here) would let them appoint four more liberal activists to the SCOTUS to outvote the current (occasionally) conservative majority.

“I Am Asking You To Love As I Love”, by Constance T. Hull

By Constance T. Hull, Catholic Exchange – Christ tells us that the world will know we are His disciples by our love. He calls all of us to love as He loves. Can the world see our love?

Resurrection people are also a crucified people. A people who seek to put others before themselves in the image of Christ.

Fr. Reese and the Dangerous Latin Mass, by Jane Stannus

By Jane Stannus, Crisis Magazine – But it’s still delightful to see Fr. Reese openly admit the power of the traditional Mass to draw souls. Only authoritative force, he believes, can stop children and young people from attending it! The whole point of this Vatican II/liturgical reform business was—supposedly—to appeal to youth, to bring the Church up to date, to get with the times. But it has backfired so badly that the precious young people are voting with their feet and packing into traditional Masses.

Scientists Predict Death Spike in Vaccinated, by Jules Gomes

By Jules Gomes, Church Militant – Expert warns UK modelers are ‘following the science’ down a rabbit hole… The most deaths in a third coronavirus wave will consist of people who have received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, British scientists are warning in a new doomsday report… Speaking to Church Militant, academic and mental-health ethicist Niall McCrae noted that “the report’s prediction that 70% of COVID-19 deaths will be of dual-vaccinated people is quite startling.”
