  • 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.

Pope Emeritus (he prefers Father) Benedict has become quite frail. His elevation to the Chair of Peter was a happy day for many of us formed by his writings and moved by his partnership with St. Pope John Paul II. Keep him in prayer. May his legacy and regard for the truth weather the current storms in the Church.

The Holy Father was critical of both the repeal of DACA and those who deny global warming… which he associated with the recent hurricanes.

In Other Words, Gluten = Bread (Valid Matter)

art19

Low gluten hosts approved by the USCCB can be used but not the non-gluten hosts commonly used in Episcopal churches. There may be some cases where Catholics will have to restrict themselves to the precious blood. Allergic reactions can be serious and terrible. I had a friend in seminary that was allergic to metal… drinking from a metal chalice caused blistering, swelling and difficulty breathing. He even had reactions to coins!

Sometimes those who feign Catholicism are in truth the greatest enemies of the faith and bigots against those who faithfully practice.
