Catechesis or Heresy? - Diocese of Scranton

Since the 1960s and Vatican II, a heretical revolution has overtaken Catholic catechesis and theology, just as it has in the liturgy of the church and the faith of the average church goer. I have taken the time to meet and speak at length to several students of our Scranton diocese high schools, and these students seem to know hardly anything definite. They lack the basic knowledge that I had in catholic elementary schools back in the late 70's. I of course was taught by several older nuns and now looking back, it seems to me that they were unaffected by Vatican II.

In other words, I knew and could explain my faith and religion to others.

Now, these students spend time learning the history of other religions. They are taught to respect and even celebrate these differences, even though fifty years ago these differences were defined as heresy. But they neglect their own Catholic Faith. They have never heard of a nightly examination of conscience, devotion to the Holy Name, or Grace, Faith, and Works. We used to teach our young catholics about Heaven, Hell, and the Last Things. Today how we feel is more important. Relativism has taken over.

Today some truths are ignored or outright denied. Angels and demons are portrayed as symbols, not the real spiritual beings we know them to be. They are superstitions worthy of scorn.

The priest is seen primarily as a counselor, there more to help us deal with football season being over or seen as the "parish administrator" there to plan the bazaar. A rather corporate like view of one that is supposed to be acting in persona Christi.

The Real Presence is only a symbol of Christ, and the Incarnation of God in Jesus Christ is to be questioned. Do you remember when the chalice was veiled due to its sacredness? Do you remember when altar boys held patens beneath your chin in case the blessed sacrament should fall to the ground?

Confession is not deemed to be important. One only has to see the availability of the sacrament to understand what priests think of it today.

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is barely thought of. Try to find a church offering this devotion.

Miracles did not happen, they were stories invented by the writers of the Bible to suck the superstitious population into accepting Christ.

The inspiration of the Bible is a myth and can be rationally explained.

These are some of the outright lies being taught or hinted at to Catholics in our post-conciliar times. They all contradict Catholic Tradition, and violate many of the defined dogmas of our Faith.

How did these Protestant ideas find their way into holy Mother Church? Why are they allowed to circulate? Why hasn't Rome smashed these heresies, and in some cases, why do they seem to embrace them?

If what our religion has taught for 2,000 years was right, how can it now be wrong? Am I to believe that some in the church, who strive to promote the ideas of Protestant heresy suddenly have learned some truth that men such as Ignatius, Aquinas, and Augustine were unable to grasp?

What do you think?

40 years of murdering our children.

4 more years of occupation by a man that makes others pay money to fund our willful murder.

When does it end?

Islamic Threat Against the West - Diocese of Scanton

The peaceful, friendly Mohammedans boldly remind Europe of their goal - a worldwide Caliphate.

Check it out and pray for leaders who will protect the population from the evil of Islam.

Lol! No one's going to protect us except us! And that is why they are so hellbent on disarming the populace.

Get a gun, get a permit to carry, and shoot often, become an expert. You'll be glad you did.

American Hostages Taken - diocese of Scranton

It seems that an Al Qaeda affiliated group has several Americans they are holding hostage in a natural gas plant in Algeria. Pray that the President can turn his attention away from stealing our liberty to do something about this.

SSPX Future? - Diocese of Scranton

Sadly, it seems that what we have thought we knew for sometime is true.

It has always been my hope that the SSPX would come home, be reconciled with Rome, and be an ally in the troubled times ahead.

We have known there is a small group of priests, led by Bp. Williamson who have operated as obstacles to the talks. While several of those priests have been expelled from the SSPX, now it would seem that perhaps they are organizing a "true" SSPX.

It has also been rumored that Bp. Williamson will be in the United States in two weeks to consecrate a new SSPX Bishop.

Can you say "excommunication"?

I truly think Bp. Fellay wants to see SSPX regularize. If Williamson and his misguided compatriots are truly gone perhaps the way forward for Rome and the Society is less muddied.

We must pray for all concerned. The SSPX coming back into the Church is of utmost importance to the future of the church.

Race Relations - The White Position - Diocese of Scranton

It is about time that the white position is stated. Has Buchanan been called a racist for this article? Most likely, and I will be too. I've been called several things for posting similar comments myself. How anyone can read this and think "that guys a racist" is beyond me.

So, read and enjoy, and be sure to comment below!

By Patrick J. Buchanan

Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America .. Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation.. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to.... This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard. And among them are these:

First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known.. Jeremiah Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.

Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the '60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream. Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks -- with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas -- to advance black applicants over white applicants. Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated their time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks.

We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude??

Barack talks about new 'ladders of opportunity' for blacks. Let him go to Altoona ? And Johnstown, and ask the white kids in Catholic schools how many were visited lately by Ivy League recruiters handing out scholarships for 'deserving' white kids...? Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for African-Americans are seven times those of white America ? Is it really white America 's fault that illegitimacy in the African-American community has hit 70 percent and the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities has reached 50 percent?

Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a failure of the black community itself?

As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime, and especially interracial crimes of violence. Is Barack Obama aware that while white criminals choose black victims 3 percent of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time?

Is Barack aware that black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies were 139 times as common in the first three years of this decade as the reverse?

We have all heard ad nauseam from the Rev. Al about Tawana Brawley, the Duke rape case and Jena . And all turned out to be hoaxes. But about the epidemic of black assaults on whites that are real, we hear nothing.

Sorry, Barack, some of us have heard it all before, about 40 years and 40 trillion tax dollars ago. This needs to be passed around because, this is a message everyone needs to hear!!!

I'm for a better America…
I am
Not racist,
Not violent,
Just not silent anymore.

Traddy's Back! - Diocese of Scranton

Well friends, we have suffered, we will suffer more, but we must trust in God and fear nothing. He will lead us forward. We only need to let him.

It's been a while since I've posted, nearly the whole election cycle, which saw the American people vote for a baby killing Marxist to lead them to ruin. 

What's been going on with the Traddy? Baby number 4 made her appearance and we are eternally grateful to God for her good health. 

I lost my job through no fault of my own. I have other things I am working on, but it has been slow. 

I'll be around more now. We have a lot to do. The heat is about to get turned up on Catholics around the world, and now here in America. From the French resolve to "watch" Traditional Catholics to learn if they should be clamped down on, to the American president's desire to hold the Catholic Church accountable for refusing to follow his abortion mandates, things are about to change in a big way.

Stay close to God, pray and do penance.

God bless you!
