 Bishop Sheen was Right! 

You are Responsible for Saving the Church

Who is going to save our Church? Not our Bishops, not our priests and religious. It is up to the people. You have the minds, the eyes, the ears to save the Church. Your mission is to see that your priests act like priests, your bishops like bishops and your religious act like religious”   – Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

Fr. Brian Harrison, O.S.6 PM Sunday March 22nd in Clayton

Communion for Divorced and Remarried Catholics? At this year’s forum in honor of St. Joseph, head of the Holy Family, Fr. Brian Harrison, O.S., S.T.D., will speak on this topic.  It’s the now-famous proposal (promoted with particular vigor by Cardinal Walter Kasper and other German-speaking bishops) to officially relax the Church’s discipline that debars divorced and civilly remarried Catholics from receiving the Eucharist. This is without any doubt the most burning and controversial question on the agenda for the upcoming Ordinary Synod of Bishops in October 2015, dedicated to marriage and family issues!

Paragraph 52 of the Final Relatio of last year’s Extraordinary Synod raised this question (although it received less than the 2/3 majority of votes required to make it an official recommendation of the Synod). It tentatively asks whether psychological or social factors might in some cases reduce the subjective guilt for such objectively adulterous unions from the level of mortal to only venial sin (or maybe even no sin at all), thereby opening the way for such couples to receive Holy Communion. Paragraph 52 calls for “deeper study” of this question as part of the preparation for this year’s Synod.

Don’t miss Fr. Harrison’s own answer to this call, in which he will argue the case for maintaining the Church’s discipline in this matter, as recently confirmed by Pope St. John Paul II in his Apostolic Exhortation Familiaris Consortio, no. 84. Continue reading »

Fr. David Vincent Meconi, S.J. Headshot 2014

Attention!!

Due to the expected traffic snarls and the possibility of worse in Clayton, we have decided to POSTPONE the Christ the King Form with Fr. Meconi until Sunday, 7-December-2014.

Tonight’s talk examines the meaning of “Kingdom” as evidenced throughout the Magisterium’s Compendium of The Social Doctrine of the Church and how Christ the King is the ultimate goal of what St. John Paul II meant by the term “New Evangelization.”  Here the Kingdom is presented not as a place but as a living task entrusted to those in union with Christ.  As such, the “Kingdom of God” must be fostered in terms of relationship, as Christians seek a three-fold peace: with the divine Trinity, with their own brothers and sisters, and with the creation entrusted to their care.

Click here to register on-line, before Wednesday, November 19th December 3rd. If you need help, don’t hesitate to call 314-435-8494 or click here to contact us by e-mail. If you prefer to register by postal mail, click here for a registration form. If you’re registering by mail, realistically that means the deadline is Friday, November 14 28th.   Continue reading »
