What's with Dermo? He is taking no new auxilliaries. I know many kids go to Mass for the last time at confirmation, but they'll take it even less seriously if they don't have a bishop come and do it.
Not quite sure whats up with ahaha "Dermo" but going completely off topic...the lid is about to blow on the clerial abuse scandals in the Archdiocese....will make Ferns look like the teddybears picnic allegedly. Therein you might see the reason for him being present for these confirmations and so as to try not to seem like an aloof individual who delegates confirmations to lowly priests....afterall though he was a nice man look at the mess Cardinal Connell made...
I'm flattered that I could be said to have "largely led" an "amount of agitation" about the use of the old rite in 1988. Although I have a personal preference for this rite, I hope that my reporting on RTE did no more than reflect the news of the day!
James the Just: So I've decided to leave you to your thriving busy, welcoming and popular forum, where you can think you have had the last word can repeat the strawman claims about Catholics what want to respect

James the Just: traditional Catholic teaching and the real presence, because I know that will be important to you. I bid you good evening.

The Ballymun Bootboy: Good evening, sir.

Rob: Hundreds of thousands of innocent Ukrainians are going to die listening to US/NATO/EU's incitement. The utterly inept Russian military will strategically have no choice but to crudely level Ukraine to the ground.

Rob: What happens when Russia strategically strikes the US/NATO/EU military equipment and foreign fighter supply lines they are using Poland for? Horrible watching this mess unfold and the blindness of what's going to happen. Pray Pray Pray for the innocent.

Rob: Anyone think the US could ever let a neighbouring country join a Chinese/Russian military alliance and have Chinese/Russian bases on the US Border? Of course not. Whether we like Russia or not they are never going to allow NATO do it to them.
Mar 4, 2022 21:03:26 GMT
Rob: Since the cold war ENDED, the USA has DOUBLED the number of NATO countries and expanded NATO bases right up to Russia's borders. What does that tell you about who is the real aggressor? Please God, wake up the people.

Rob: Just war doctrine of the Church lists 4 strict conditions for "legitimate defence by military force". 3 "There must be serious prospects of success". Ukrainian people have no serious prospects of success. Russia must and will win this war whatever the cost

Paul Slater: Is there really so little interest in these Catholic topics that nobody has posted in more than a month?

Amanda McNamara: What a narrow construction of “pro life” from Righttolife. What about family tax credits, single parent welfare allowances, maternal/child health and education supports for those most in need? This was a lost opportunity to define “pro-life” properly.

Concerned Catholic: A concerned Catholic man comes to visit a holy and wise old monk to talk about the problems in the Church. The man asks the monk, “What do I do if my priest appears to be a heretic?” “Go to the bishop,” the monk answers.
Aug 23, 2022 18:32:00 GMT
Concerned Catholic: “Well, what do I do if the bishop also appears to be a heretic?” the man asks. “Go to the pope,” the monk replies. “And if the pope appears to be a heretic, too?” the man pleads.

Concerned Catholic: “Then find out what Catholics have always done, and do that.”

Paul Kincaid: And what if the heretics band together, arguing that they are right and everyone else wrong, in defiance of the Holy Father.

Phillip: Anyone who is doing what Catholics have always done according to sacred apostolic tradition and sacred scripture is not a heretic. Catholicism did not begin in the 1960's. What was true and Catholic in 1140, 1640, and 1940 is true and Catholic today.
Sept 15, 2022 22:59:14 GMT
Phillip: That's a dogma of the Church by the way, for anyone who's one of the unfortunate recent two generations of recent Catholics who have been de catechised.
