True Wisdom and Historic Perspective in this Current Age

True Wisdom And Historic Perspective In This Current Age

January 14, 2020

Prophets proclaim the truth, and they predict the future only in a derivative sense of cautioning about the consequences of denying the truth. Thus, the Church distinguishes between holy prophesying and sinful fortune-telling. There is a “psychic” near our rectory, who will tell your future for $10, but you have to ring the bell first, and I should think that...

The Magic of Christmas

The Magic Of Christmas

December 16, 2019

We know that the first Christmas was the miracle of Christ’s birth to the Virgin Mary for the salvation of souls – God’s gift to the whole world of His only son Jesus Christ. Music lifts a person’s spirits and brings...
