According to writer Matt C. Abbot, troubled priest Father John Corapi is returning to the priesthood and is currently getting his life back together. Abbot claims to have a good source regarding this news, but I at the moment cannot verify it. In the meantime, pray for John Corapi. I will update this post if and when I learn more details.

Popular Catholic apologist Michael Coren has left the Catholic Church and joined the Protestant Anglican community. Last month, there were rumors that he had converted. The Catholic blogosphere was buzzing on the topic. I first learned of it here: https://catholicintelligenceblog.wordpress.com/2015/04/27/michael-coren-crypto-anglican-becomes-anglican/ http://catholicsacristan.blogspot.com/2015/04/why-catholics-are-wrong-michael-coren.html He is also mentioned on the Toronto's Anglican community Facebook and parish bulletin, see: https://www.facebook.com/torontoanglican/photos/pb.115072368533937.-2207520000.1430155693./895263353848164/?type=3&theater http://www.stjamescathedral.on.ca/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=jqIq7L3MfcE%3D&tabid=98 After reading those posts, I decided not to post on it until I heard it "from the horse's" mouth, so to speak.

Mother Angelica, the Franciscan nun known for her zeal and feistiness in regards to spreading the faith is on a feeding tube and her overall health is declining according to the Our Lady of the Angels Monastery Family Newsletter, see link below in the sources. Mother founded the Eternal World Television Network in 1981 which has helped millions around the world learn the faith and brought many more back to the Catholic Church. She has been a blessing for the Church despite being attacked by Cardinal Mahony and others who felt she overstepped her role as a religious nun. We all miss Mother on television and are grateful for the sharing of her faith with all of us.

Today we celebrate the Solemnity of Christ the King of the Universe. What a glorious day. Jesus Christ is King of all (1 Cor 15:20-26, 28). The king of the universe. The very word "Christ" means "Anointed one, or King." This solemnity was instituted in 1925 by Pope Pius XI in his encyclical Quas Primas. The day was originally called the solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ the king. In 1969, Blessed Pope Paul VI in the motu proprio Mysterii Paschalis revised the title as "Our Lord Jesus Christ King of the Universe." Priests in the Catholic Church wear white or golden color vestments to show the glory and joy behind the celebration. Other Christian bodies such as the Protestant and Orthodox adopted the day and have their own ways of celebrating it. All those Baptized share in this Kingship of Christ (CCC 1241). This day which always falls on a Sunday is the last Sunday of the Liturgical calendar. The Sunday that follows is the First Sunday of Advent which starts a new … [Read more...] about Solemnity of Christ the King of the Universe: Defend The King!
