Maybe the checkout girl was just poorly trained in customer service. All too common nowadays. Self-styled “old culture warrior” Illo seems to view his fellow man through the prism of race and social justice, e.g., “People of color earning minimum wage,” “Latino and Asian limo drivers,” “wage slaves of a capitalist system,” “Get off my lawn!” Oops, scratch that last one.

Do vocations retreats really help? Or are they thinly veiled recruiting events for the religious community hosting them?

Our so-called “Catholic” president didn’t mention God in his official Thanksgiving proclamation. But he sure wants to kill babies. And he has the support of our Church’s bishops and pope as a good Catholic.

Is the word “humble” used with irony in this story’s title?
Irony ‘Synodality in the eyes of its humble San Diego architect’ 2023/11/27

Irony, who can argue with a “humble Church?” It sounds much better than mumble church, stumble church, crumble church, fumble church or grumble church (though all of those may have a ring of truth). Who wants hubris?

Okay, let’s do away with all the rules and just say everybody’s welcome regardless. I’m sure that’s what Jesus really meant. The whole narrow gate thing must have been a case of lost in translation. We know much better today.

I think Rev. Bonfiglio is right, “You know, the God that the archbishop seems to know and the God that I know are two very different Gods.”
anonymous clergyman ‘St. Ignatius pastor preaches full gay’ 2023/11/29

Preaching full gay? Is that like, “Tonight, we’re going the full monty?”

Lost count of the I’s, me’s and my’s in that sermon. Holy Cow….but at least he schooled the archbishop on just who Jesus is right at the get go.

Maybe CalCatholic could start a “churches worth avoiding” series.

I know Greg Bonfiglio from when we were teens at the same high school in San Jose. He was a good, talented young man. It’s tragic to see what the Jesuits’ formation, or deformation, has done to him.

The Incarnation is not about sin, according to him and his Jesuit brother Greg Boyle. That is not true. It is significantly about the forgiveness of our sins.

You think the souls of children are pure? They lie. They steal. They are physically and verbally aggressive.They can sin, too. That is why we have confession.

For historical perspective, ten years ago CalCatholic reported on this same priest at this same parish about his reading a letter justifying his presence in the city’s gay pride parade.

In the words of Steve Harvey-“you want Jesus.”

Please don’t push people into marriage. As St. Jacinta said “Marriage is a state of penance.” A very few people, usually men, enjoy being married.
