Exorcism documentary on TV

Just recently, a local TV station made a documentary on the catholic rite of exorcism. The documentary featured Rev.

Here is the complete I-Witness documentary narrated by Jay Taruc in two parts.

Requiescat in Pace, Msgr. Melencio De Vera

I just received a news that Msgr. Melencio De Vera has passed away, yesterday, 20th of October 2010. Msgr. De Vera was one of the few priests who celebrates the TLM from the early beginnings of the movement until the present despite his advanced age. Farewell, dear friend of the extraordinary form, may God have mercy on your soul and may you intercede for us. Requiem aeternam in dona ei Domine et lux perpetua luceat ei, requiescat in pace.

Msgr. Pozzo exposes the existence of a "Para-Conciliar" ideology within the Church

There is what we may call the Conciliar, or more exactly the para-Conciliar ideology, which was imposed on the Council from the beginning and which overshadowed it. By this expression is not meant something that concerns the texts of the Council, nor (even less) the intentions of the subjects, but the frame of overall interpretation by which the Council was situated and which acted as a type of internal conditioning in the subsequent reading of the acts and documents. The Council is not, in fact, the para-Conciliar ideology, but in the history of the ecclesiastical milieu and the means of mass communication it, i.e. the para-Conciliar ideology, has operated in large part towards a mystification of the Council. Since all the consequences of the para-Conciliar ideology have been manifested as an historical event, the revolution of 1968 must indeed be acknowledged, taking as its point of departure rupture with the past and a radical change in history. In the para-Conciliar ideology 1968 signifies a new form of the Church in rupture with the past, even if the roots of this rupture had been present for some time in certain Catholic circles.

Msgr. Guido Pozzo is the secretary of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei. The complete unofficial translation of his July 2, 2010 speech can be found on Rorate Caeli.

The wolves and the weeds

The wolves and the weeds are making their presence felt and with it the dark cloud of confusion continues to descend upon us. We have been called to be the light of the world and the salt of the earth and for this reason the world hate us, just us it hated He who sent us. They come towards us with swords (bills), spears (condoms) and javelin (pills) but we will go against them in the Name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom they have defied. Let us arm ourselves with prayers, fasts and sacrifices.
