  • 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

Transgender British athletes born male set to make Olympic history by competing in the games as women

Is this really fair to women? Could it displace large numbers of women across the wide spectrum of sports?

Traditionalist St. Pius X society abandons unification, claims Francis spreading errors

And to think Pope Francis extended to them faculties to hear Confessions during the Year of Mercy. Fidelity on many points of Catholic doctrine does not make up for a sustained practical schism (disunity) or a rigorist dissent in ecclesiology with the living Church. They have taken off the table any pursuit for juridical standing in the Roman Catholic Church. This is all very sad. But, it was my long-held view that any rhetoric on their part toward reunion was only empty posturing. I had hoped I would be proven wrong. They could do more good inside than outside the Church instituted by Jesus on the ROCK of Peter. The next step will be sedevacantism.

There’s a generation that didn’t know John Paul II – this film is for them

The Knights of Columbus are sponsoring a new documentary on Pope John Paul II and his role in the downfall of European Communism.

WARNING! Please be advised that the website, Deliver MyPrayer.org, which links to DeliverMyPrayer.com and VaticanReading.com does NOT have approval of the Holy See. The site requests “donations,” with a promise that prayer intentions will be publicly announced in the Basilica of St. Peter’s. It also claims a portion of the funds go to the Holy See though there is NO RELATIONSHIP!

  1. One can be critical of prudential decisions, but Catholics must still give obedience and religious assent to the Holy See. Otherwise, lacking such respect, we are walking in the steps of the Protestant reformers who forgot their place and fractured the Church.

  2. Hi Joe

    I beg to differ, actions speak louder than words, as our lord says “you will know them by their works”

    Kind Regards and God Bless


  3. Hi Father Joe

    Hate to say this, but the Pope has sold out the Catholic Church!



    FATHER JOE: I do not believe that is true. He is still Peter, the Vicar of Christ.

  4. Dear Fr. Jenkins,
    Thanks for your blog. About that piece linked above regarding the SSPX, please note that La Stampa got it from the NC Reporter. It’s probably not an accurate representation of the SSPX’s intentions about relations with the authorities of the Church, so I wouldn’t put much weight on it.
    Best regards.
