It’s always exciting to find Cdl Mahony in such a list as this.
Thank you for this list. It should keep me busy and not bugging you for a long time.
Anonymous, why don’t you read the Bible and the Doctors of the Church?
BEWARE – –
Bishop Blaire – supports ILLEGAL immigration.
Bishop Blaire – supports GUN Control for law abiding citizens (but does not criticize the Obama Administration on the illegal – ‘Fast and Furious’).
Bishop Blaire – supports completely abolishing the DEATH PENALTY in all cases.
NONE of these are teachings of the Catholic Church, which he pretends they are.
Cardinal Mahoney is not worth reading due to his Cardinal Bernardin heretical views on “the seamless garment” theory where all sins are equal, and his use of LA Cemetery dedicated funds paid by families of the deceased for perpetual maintenance – to help pay legal fines for his support of sexually abusive Priests.
No Cardinal or Bishop of the Church should use his title to promote his own political beliefs.
(To make certain that you are not being fed errors, keep your “Catechism of the Catholic Church, Second Edition” handy.)
The VATICAN web site should be promoted widely.
God bless you PETE for these warnings…I will stay away from such Bishops….it’s sad though, wish it would of been different had they taken their calling more seriously by being holy and faithful. I am truly sad by their preaching their personal opinions. God bless you for warning the unsuspecting but be sure that some in bad will support them no matter what. Our church is diverse and not all like minded in Christ…pretty much anyone with or without bad will can find someone who will agree with them….just to suit whatever agenda they are after.
An excellent California blog is Fr Joseph’s Illo blog. He is Chaplain at Thomas Aquinas College and priest for the Camarillo Latin Mass. Wonderful homilies.
For ERROR free reading (and to assist with accurate Catholic blogging) – – – – –
1) Catholic Bible starting with the NEW TESTAMENT;
2) “Catechism of the Catholic Church, Second Edition” (CCC);
3) ‘Code of Canon Law”;
4) GIRM (General Instruction of the Roman Missal).
The CCC, Code of Canon Law, and GIRM can all be found on the VATICAN web site.
I am very wary of this article when Cardinal Mahoney and Bishop Blaire who do not post error free Church teachings and do not promote the reading of the CCC are on the list.
It’s an excellent list! It’s rather overwhelming how many brilliant, interesting Catholic blogs there are. I use the links lists on Fr Z’s blog, and that of rorate-caeli on occasion, where there are many priest’s blogs listed. Though certainly not a priest, for fun badcatholicsbingohall is rather fun, as is the InkDesk , Joseph Pierce’s website that has informative, intelligent contributors.
First of all, catholic single’s should never be DATING!…DATING implies ROMANCE…they should be COURTING, as one very saintly cleric articulated to me, when discussing my own nuptial’s. Interesting, that Cdl. Mahony is prominently featured on this blog…even more bizarre is that he is assigned number 23…
Yes Proud Rhodesian I agree….we have been using the word courting with our kids too so they can get use to using it. Hopefully it will influence others to adopt that way that hopefully will lead to marriage (on a mature age) instead of other things….
While I would find Cardinal Mahony’s blog far from “totally awesome,” there are some other problems with this site in general:
First of all, it lists sites supposedly for Catholic singles, but ranks catholicmatch.com number two after eharmony and gives it the same rating as match.com. Below it states that these sites are ranked according to, among other things, “commitment to Catholic principles.” Most of the sites are not remotely Catholic in nature.
The “100 Date Movies For Catholic Singles” is even more problematic. A number of very immoral movies are included in the list (Sex and the City is ranked #7!) as well as movies that outright mock the Christian faith (e.g. Easy A).
At the very bottom of the site one can read what is probably the site’s real goal – to generate revenue. The owner of the site makes money when users click through links listed on the page and utilize the coupons. The “rankings” seem to have more to do with generating income than with directing people to authentically Catholic sites.
As a Catholic priest ministering here in California, I could not in good conscience recommend this site to any Catholic, either in my parish or elsewhere.
Thank you Father for letting us know…as I suspected (discerning) I didn’t feel like I can completely trust some of the resources to recommend to others. I recall many years ago there were some Christian blogs that I saw and they were so faithful to their cause, that it shamed us because while we Catholics have to seek with caution, the Christians sites I saw seemed less harmless. Especially the couples one and parents one. I liked that they held the same values as i did but with some of the Catholic ones, there was that battle with some Catholics being too liberal and it just bugged me.
And many of these priests use their blogs to generate revenue as well–which is also a bit distasteful.
thank you Father……
I couldn’t believe it when a friend of ours recommend the Kardashians to our kids as a family show…..she said it was a great family show. Of all shows on TV that is the one she suggested so highly to our kids. WOW! Sometimes I just don’t understand how low society has become. Even good friends who we admired as good Catholics, some of the things that came out of their mouths…wow. Fine if they want to watch it but to publicize it to our kids…that is another thing. Even my son was like “wow really”.
Of any TV show, I would rather watch 19 kids and counting with my kids…..even my kids watched Little House on the Prairie Re-runs on the Hallmark channel. My 11 year old likes the Any Griffith show…he just watched it one time and loved it….of course that is just TV stuff but we enjoy most of the saint movies. My daughter’s favorite was the St. Maria Ghoretti movie. Mine was St. Rita and Saint Padre Pio.
Yes I watch some secular movies too but I would never recommend them not unless the parents didn’t mind, well I at least try to. But usually the secular movies that I like are decent or have a moral story to them….nothing is perfect today but I don’t appreciate the Kardashians, they are not a family TV show I would ever recommend.
The first one, Atonement Online, is great. It has prayers, timely posts about day. It has a novena to the Holy Spirit and links to an introduction to Scripture study. They are an hour long so I have not had time to listen to all.
Anonymous, just read the Bible and then look at various and sundry “interpretations” … you can slurp milk or chew meat, your choice.
No 3 has a link to the message of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI for World Communications Day. (And Skai-various and sundry interpretations of the Bible? The Holy Spirit is the sole interpreter of Scripture. The Holy Spirit is the infallible guide of the Church. We look to the Church and only the Church for the proper interpretation of Scripture. You know there are 4 senses of Scripture, don’t you? )
Anonymous, your many posts reflect no serious foundation in Catholicism in your life. What did you imagine I was talking about? Is your memory so short that you do not remember my several posts addressed to you, in response to your posts, some of which were directed to me? Or are you simply losing your mind? Like I point out, you are either intentionally trying to deceive or you are short on the wick end of the candle.
Skai, I don’t know what you are talking about.
I recall a k once saying that she didn’t always get what Skai was talking about…..so the real question: is Anony k this time or is there another person with the same….
On the site’s dating rules, I noticed that the six rules for safety for women on the first date did not include the CCW. I suspect the site is run by a liberal.
Stay clear of Carninal Mahony’s site and Bishop Blair, I enjoy Rorate-Caeli and Father Z. Pinoy Catholic is also very good, when it comes to pointing out Liturgical abuse.
Mahony’s site is a joke…much like his scandal ridden years as the Cdl of Los Angeles. He never talks about praying the rosary, Catholic devotion’s, the hagiography of the Church, or anything else Roman Catholic. All he talks about is immigration…and how Washington isn’t doing enough for the alien’s who cross this border undocumented…this man was, is and will always be a travesty…shocking, positively shocking…
“Making All Things New” by Fr. Joseph Homick is my favorite ( on the web at wordincarnate dot wordpress dot com). —
Qoute from FR. Joseph: I have entitled this blog “Making All Things New,” using the participle as an indication of the dynamism of the working of God in this world and in his Church, and also as an indication that God’s creative, redemptive renewal of the face of the earth is a work in progress that will only be completed at the end of time, when all of us have made our divinely-ordained contribution to this renewal. But let us hasten to be about our Father’s business, so the evils will pass quickly and the glory will come soon. I entrust this blog, this hope for the renewal of the Church and of the world—and especially of my own soul and life—to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, whose inexplicable love for me, and my grateful love for her, will be known fully only in the Kingdom of Heaven.”
CARDINAL ROGER MAHONY BACK IN THE SPOTLIGHT, according to the Los Angeles Times:
When Archbishop Jose Gomez stripped his predecessor, Cardinal Roger Mahony, of public duties for mishandling clergy sex abuse cases, a church spokesman said the retired prelate’s life would remain largely the same with one exception: confirmations.
No longer would Mahony preside at springtime rites in which teenagers receive the sacrament that marks full passage into the Catholic Church, the spokesman said.
But three months later, Mahony is back doing confirmations. Since Easter, he has officiated at eight services, including one last week in which he anointed more than 120 youths at a Wilmington parish.
His presence has caused controversy, with some parents threatening to pull their children from the liturgies and at least one parish priest asking that Mahony not attend. It has also raised questions about why Gomez’s rebuke of Mahony, an unprecedented move that won him praise from victims and their supporters around the world, had so little lasting effect.
SO MUCH FOR OBEYING THE ORDINARY OF THE ARCHDIOCESE OF LOS ANGELES!!!
It’s a power game; Mahony has more power than Abp Gomez … why? Because Abp Gomez does not have sufficient faith power to overcome the temptations of Mahony.
There is TRUTH. There are LIES.
It is an abomination to pass off LIES as teachings of the Church.
Shame on Bishop Blaire, and Mahony.
Shame on ‘Catholic Dating Sites’ for promoting them to unsuspecting Catholics.
Years ago…when making my confirmation, a sister (I use that term loosely), that dressed regularly like a homeless dyke, taught some of the classes prior to confirmation, with my fellow catechumen’s. She regularly groused about women getting shorted in the Church, because they were not allowed to become priest’s and used to call being horny, “skin hunger”…she claimed everyone has it, and it was really no big deal, if you acted out occasionally, to satiate this biological “hunger”…she never articulated it directly, but it was implied…implied is a better word…another post Vatican II modernist, teaching heresy, and poisoning the mind’s of the faithful.
Rhodesian, I have to take umbrage at your use of the word “grouse” in the same blog with the word “dyke”. It’s like putting ambrosia and swill on the same banquet table. Apparently you have never tasted wild grouse that have cleared the northern forests of their seasonal huckleberries.
I found #9 The Black Biretta blogged by Padre Giovanni Trigillio to offer very honest and charitable information on the homosexual issue. I believe that his understanding of the topic along with his insights would be of interest to most readers of CCD.
Cdl. Mahony is a “black snake”… he isn’t through envenomating the Archdiocese with his deadly bite…The venom…the poison, if you will… is called “modernism”…and it causes spiritual paralysis… and death in some cases…the only “sure” remedy is the sacraments, and regularly partaking of the Eucharist…this counteracts Mahony’s poison of modernism…Praised be Jesus Christ
I understand the issues involving Cardinal Mahony, we still need to be careful how we say things, but I agree there certain grave issues that has done great harm in our Church.
Yes, absolutely we need to watch how we say things. Saying Mahony is pure evil would be just over the line, barely.
We need to promote good “Catholic” web sites for everyone to see – that have been around a while, are faithful to Church teaching and the Magisterium.
There are many, but here are a few.
1) VATICAN web site;
2) California Catholic Daily;
3) EWTN (Eternal Word Television Network includes a web site);
4) ChurchMilitantTV (Michael Voris);
5) What Catholics REALLY Believe SOURCE;
6) National Catholic REGISTER (not the heretical Reporter);
7) Catholic Culture;
8) Vatican Information Service;
3) Catholic Culture;
