What To Do?

The publisher of the National Catholic Distorter (Reporter), Joseph Feuerherd, has died at the age of 48 of cancer. On the one hand, he headed one of the major sources of heresy and dissent in this country. This is not to judge his soul. Fortunately, this is way above my pay grade. On the other hand, he is my brother in Christ. This obliviously takes precedent. What to do? I know, offer Mass for him in the Extraordinary Form.

Weapon Of Mass Destruction!

(Via The Crescat on Facebook.)

Dear Holy Father, please wear this. Pretty please! The world has been a drabber place without the papal tiara. Plus the fits of apoplexy by the usual suspects (Hans Kung, LCWR, et al.) would certainly speed up the biological solution.

A Utah Saint?

Interesting article from The Intermountain Catholic:

Cora Louisa Yorgason Evans was born in Midvale, Utah, July 9, 1904, and raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She was married in the LDS Temple on June 4, 1924, and 10 years later became a Catholic and was baptized in St. Joseph Catholic Church in Ogden.

"Cora’s first mystical experience was of the Blessed Mother in 1907, when she was 3 years old," said Michael McDevitt, who is custodian of Cora Evans’ writings. "She bore the stigmata and would go into ecstasy while having mystical experiences. She had perfect recall and would journal her experiences."

In the first grade, Evans smelled a fragrance and saw a beautiful woman dressed in white. She thought it was an angel. The woman asked Evans to help her give Jesus more love.

Evans was 19 when she met her future husband. "Their first date was to the temple to do baptisms by proxy for the dead," said McDevitt. "Their temple marriage ceremony on June 4, 1924, when Cora was 20, had her seething inside. She considered Mormonism a sex-oriented, polytheist religion. She realized she had gained a wonderful husband, but resolved to one day find the one true God that would break this false religion."

Feast Of St. Athanasius The Great.

St. Athanasius the Great: Patriarch of Alexandria, Defender of the Divinity of Christ, and my Confirmation patron. Athanasius would also be my choice of name were I elected Pope. (It would scare the libs!)

Distasteful Task,

praying for Bin Laden's soul. Not something I want to do. Not something I think will do any good. But, on the off chance it will, it is something I must do.
