Catholic Charities’ “compassionate and coordinated response” facilitates terrorists, drug cartel members, and child sex traffickers to illegally enter this country. I don’t see anything compassionate about that.

May I ask Fr. Higgins if he is allowed to substitue grape juice for Communion wine? By the way, well done in your 36-years of sobriety.
The disrespectful tone of the comments on this page are appalling. Please remember this is a catholic website.THe President is our president. He is not “My Biden”, and Trump was twice impeached, 4 times indicted, and his company was already convicted.

Unless there is a plenary indulgence attached, I an not wearing heels. I prefer my feet the way their Creator designed them, flat on the ground.
If I may say: looking at the archives, in actuality “many” of the commenters who were active then when I started commenting here (over 10 years ago) are no longer active now.
YFC– people who are rebellious to the True Catholic Faith, leave parishes like Fr. Illo’s. And people seeking the true Catholic Faith flock to his parish. There are lots of misguided, rebellious feminists, who have fought with Fr. Illo. For one thing – he does not allow “altar girls.”

I would like to suggest that one of these priests, like Father Humphrey, think about re-writing “A Map of Life” by Frank Sheed. His introduction and first chapter deal with the issue that Father Humphrey speaks of here.

Like many today, this mindless girl has no religious and moral training. Waste of time. How did she even graduate from junior high or middle school? Why not instead, interview a mature, educated Catholic student, with a good mind – who is a future leader in his or her field?

She could have just answered “Whatever bro…” to all of the questions and made just as much sense.

We’ve been able to confirm that the demon idol Cindy McCain gave to Pope Francis is most likely the ogre-woman called Soyoko Mana, not the priest killer. Soyoko Mana carries a knife and a crook to catch children, whom she eats.

The Catholic Church teaches that each human soul is distinct. People are not reincarnated. Each soul is made by God.

The Pope and the Vatican has said no to the blessing of gay unions and the dubia Cardinals know it.

Hey Jon, your pope-splaining doesn’t make it any better. The man is prepping the Church to accept something which is unacceptable; best not to ignore it.

She could have given him more appropriate and lovely items handcrafted by Native Americans – turquiose belts, rings from other native gems, hand woven blankets and baskets, a carved native animal and books about Arizona culture or even a native food item.

It’s a worrisome time in the church. The 60s liberal Boomer theologians and bishops are making their last attempt to change church teaching.
