• Our Blogger

    Fr. Joseph Jenkins

  • The blog header depicts an important and yet mis-understood New Testament scene, Jesus flogging the money-changers out of the temple. I selected it because the faith that gives us consolation can also make us very uncomfortable. Both Divine Mercy and Divine Justice meet in Jesus. Priests are ministers of reconciliation, but never at the cost of truth. In or out of season, we must be courageous in preaching and living out the Gospel of Life. The title of my blog is a play on words, not Flogger Priest but Blogger Priest.

Faith & Values in the News

COMMENTARY: The revolution is upon us

I am not convinced that this religious revolution is a good thing. Instead of an ecclesial purification, we might face a secular purging where the rights of the Church and religious liberty will be attacked. Is it not already happening?

Pope and the devil: Francis’ fascination with Satan leads to suspicion he performed exorcism

I suspect we are going to hear a lot more about deliverance prayer and exorcisms in the days immediately ahead. The devil has numbed consciences and oppressed souls long enough. People are under demonic domination and bondage and do not even seem to know it. The problem is far more serious than unseen footsteps and whispers in the dark.

Godless funerals thrive in ‘post-Catholic’ Ireland

Because of scandal and defection, people are opting out of Catholic funerals. This is not only a trend in Ireland. We are seeing more funerals here too, without benefit of clergy or the Mass. We are forgetting our obligation to pray for the dead and the value of such for the Poor Souls in Purgatory.

Politician: Kill Disabled Children Like We Kill Deformed Lambs

People act surprised at this attitude, but it is a growing mentality and is already realized with abortion. 90% of unborn children with Downs are terminated (murdered) in the womb. I suspect we shall see further culling of “defective” children so we can avoid the expense and the bother of caring for them. We will also deprive ourselves of knowing them and being loved by them.

Scientists Claim They Have Cloned Human Embryos for Stem Cells

Human cloning is supposed to be illegal. But there is a loophole, it is only illegal if the cloned embryo is allowed to live. This is government sanctioned murder.

Abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell convicted of first-degree murder

Are the wheels in motion for a presidential pardon? Monsters are monsters, even if PP wants to distance itself from Gosnell.
