James Martin, SJ, Offers Absurd Interpretation of Wedding Garment Parable

America’s most confusing and misleading Jesuit has, perhaps, outdone himself yet again. Known, among many things, for offering ridiculous, sentimentalist, and wrong reflections on Scripture, Father Martin tweeted his shocking interpretation of the Wedding Garment parable from Matthew which was heard at both forms of the Mass (28th Sunday in Ordinary Time & 19th Sunday after Pentecost).

I’ll let a screenshot of the overwhelming response speak for itself. However, the question is now building, why does Cardinal Dolan allow this to continue in his important diocese? Why the silence?

Fr. Martin’s interpretation has God the Father condemning Jesus the Son to Hell.

Bonum Vitae: A Budding Project Taking Place

As I alluded to last week with a call to action in order to court passionate and thoughtful writers, framework for an upcoming project is coming into place. In order to find more candidates to be contributors, I am going to run a small Facebook campaign with the new project’s new Facebook page: Bonum Vitae.

Please consider “liking” the page because Facebook will not allow new campaigns to be run by a new page with nearly no followers for obvious reasons. You will then also get the benefit of being the first to know about the project’s news and growth!

No automatic alt text available.

Bonum Vitae is an online digest dedicated to classical pursuits, noble endeavors, Permanent Things, and The Good Life.

Also, if you have a knack for writing and are passionate about any of the topics listed below (or offshoots of them) please contact me! This project will be fun.

[WATCH] Another Historic and Beautiful Church Saved by ICKSP

Image result for St. Thomas of Canterbury and English Martyrs

The Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest (ICKSP) is an apostolate which has been taking over churches across the globe which have been either slated to close or in a state of nearly unusable disrepair. They make the repairs needed, restore the original beauty of the inside and out, provide the extraordinary form of the Mass and sacraments. and watch the pews fill more and more each week (with young families).

This is what happened at St. Thomas of Canterbury and English Martyrs, the beautiful, Gothic, larger-than-life, church in Preston, England with its first (Pontifical High) Mass to celebrate its renewed life. ICKSP has saved this gorgeous building from being sold or demolished by the diocese of Lancaster. Deo Gratias!

Below is an 11-minute video taken of the Mass celebrating the day with interviews of the bishop, ICKSP, and beaming new parishioners.

It’s hard to argue that Summorum Pontificum has been anything other than the greatest and most fruitful contribution to St. JPII’s call to the New Evangelization. ☩
