Is the Friday fish thing all year?
Yes and no.
I've been wanting to go to a fish fry thing at the local place. Will they have that this time of year? I think I'm putting that on my 2018 goal list... "Fish Fry at St. Joe's."
Oh, Hell yes. Tell them I sent you if you want taken care of, tell them Del sent you if you want cold fish, or tell them Wos sent you if you want to be really bored and get a bowl of grape nuts.

After critical letter to pope, theologian resigns as consultant to U.S. bishops

On the same day that an ex-chief of staff for the U.S. bishops' Committee on Doctrine and a current member of the Vatican's International Theological Commission made public a critical letter he wrote to Pope Francis accusing him of sowing "chronic confusion," the U.S. bishops announced that Capuchin Father Thomas Weinandy has resigned as an adviser to the Committee on Doctrine.

After making public a letter he wrote to Pope Francis accusing the pontiff of sowing “chronic confusion” and teaching in an “intentionally ambiguous” manner, a former chief of staff for the U.S. bishops’ Committee on Doctrine has resigned as a consultant to the same committee.

The conference announced the resignation in a statement on Tuesday, the same day the letter by Capuchin Father Thomas Weinandy was published by Crux and other media outlets.

“After speaking with the General Secretary of the Conference today, Father Thomas Weinandy, O.F.M., Cap., has resigned, effective immediately, from his position as consultant to the USCCB Committee on Doctrine,” the bishops’ statement said.

“The work of the committee is done in support of, and in affective collegiality with, the Holy Father and the Church in the United States. Our prayers go with Father Weinandy as his service to the committee comes to a close,” it said.

At the same time, Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of Galveston-Houston, President of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, released a separate statement saying Weinandy’s resignation illustrates the nature of constructive discussion in the Church.

“Throughout the history of the Church, ministers, theologians and the laity all have debated and have held personal opinions on a variety of theological and pastoral issues. In more recent times, these debates have made their way into the popular press. That is to be expected, and is often good,” DiNardo said.

“However, these reports are often expressed in terms of opposition, as political - conservative vs. liberal, left vs. right, pre-Vatican II vs Vatican II. These distinctions are not always very helpful,” he said.

“Christian charity needs to be exercised by all involved. In saying this, we all must acknowledge that legitimate differences exist, and that it is the work of the Church, the entire body of Christ, to work towards an ever-growing understanding of God’s truth,” DiNardo said.

DiNardo appeared to suggest that Weinandy’s letter failed to afford a necessary benefit of the doubt to the pope’s positions. …

Pope Francis is not the problem.

His teachings only seem "confusing" because our age is confused.

Francis tells us to look at our problems, so we can start to find solutions.

It doesn't help us that our political "left" and "right" are both insane, and so Francis does not support either side of the political spectrum. Part of our own problem is that we keep looking to governments for solutions to problems that governments can't solve -- like defining gender, or marriage, or changing the climate. We we need to do for ourselves.

Mass formally opens canonization cause for Chief Black Elk

Bishop Robert D. Gruss of Rapid City said Chief Nicholas W. Black Elk's life as a dedicated catechist, spiritual leader and guide "inspired many to live for Christ by his own story." Black Elk was born sometime between 1858 and 1866. He died Aug. 19, 1950, at Pine Ridge. With the formal opening of his cause, Black Elk now has the title "servant of God."

PINE RIDGE, South Dakota - During a Mass to formally open the sainthood cause for Chief Nicholas W. Black Elk, the Native American was described as someone who merged the Lakota and Catholic culture in a way “that drew him deeper into the mystery of Christ’s love and the church.”

Black Elk’s love for God and Scripture led him to become a catechist, fulfilling the mission of all disciples, said Bishop Robert D. Gruss of Rapid City in his homily at the Oct. 21 Mass at Holy Rosary Church in Pine Ridge.

The bishop said that for 50 years Black Elk led others to Christ often melding his Lakota culture into his Christian life. “This enculturation can always reveal something of the true nature and holiness of God,” he said, adding that Black Elk always “challenged people to renew themselves, to seek this life that Christ offers them.”

Gruss said Black Elk’s life as a dedicated catechist, spiritual leader and guide “inspired many to live for Christ by his own story.” With the formal opening of his cause, Black Elk now has the title “servant of God.”

Pope Francis sides with Benedict, says Christ shed his blood ‘for many’
Image

During a Mass on Friday for cardinals who have died in the past year, Pope Francis seemed to wade directly into one of the most-debated points in the "liturgy wars" in the Catholic Church, siding with his predecessor Pope Benedict XVI in insisting that "for many," not "for all," is the best way to render for whom Christ shed his blood, since it captures the idea that in this life human beings have to make a choice.

ROME - Pope Francis appeared to wade into one of the most contentious liturgical debates in Catholicism in recent years, siding with his predecessor Pope emeritus Benedict XVI by insisting that Christ died “for many,” instead of using the phrase “for all.”

“The ‘many’ who will rise for eternal life are to be understood as the ‘many’ for whom the blood of Christ was shed,” Francis said on Friday. “They are the multitude that, thanks to the goodness and mercy of God, can experience the life that does not pass away, the complete victory over death brought by the resurrection.”

The quotation marks around the word “many” were used by the Vatican when distributing the text.

Francis argued that “for many” better captures the sense that human beings have to make a choice during this life, either for or against God.

“Awakening from death isn’t, in itself, a return to life,” the pope said. “Some in fact will awake to eternal life, others for eternal shame.”

“Death renders definitive the ‘crossroads’ which, already here in this world, stands before us: the way of life, that is, the one that leads us to communion with God, or the path of death, that is, the one that leads us away from Him,” the pontiff said. …

Crux is so insular.

"For the many" is what the Scripture says. The Spanish-language translations have always said, "For the many."

It was only that lax 1970's ICEL translation of the Mass into English that said, "For all." This was corrected with the new translation of 2011. Now the Mass prayers say what Scripture says.

Francis is not "siding with Benedict," as if this were a political dispute. Francis and Benedict are preaching from Scripture, which is their job.

Two boosts to the case for continuity between Benedict and Francis
Image

Although the mainstream press loves to posit a fundamental difference between Popes Benedict XVI and Francis, this week the case for continuity between the two pontiffs also got a boost in two different quarters. The bottom line, actually, is probably that Benedict and Francis are alike in some ways and different in others, and a review of papal history would suggest it's pretty much always been thus.

In popular media narratives, it’s long been taken for granted that Pope Francis marks, if not a repudiation, certainly a dramatic break with his predecessor, Pope emeritus Benedict XVI. Yet this week, the argument for continuity between the two pontiffs drew unexpected boosts from two different quarters, one having to do with Vatican foreign policy and the other Catholic liturgy.

[…]

Now, Francis has decreed that most of the control over the [liturgical] translation process will pass to the bishops’ conferences, and it will be the bishops, not the Vatican, who will make judgments as to whether a particular translation is faithful.

Francis clearly means for that approach to stick. In November, he took the unusual step of writing a public letter to Cardinal Robert Sarah of Guinea, who heads the Congregation for Divine Worship, responding to comments Sarah had made suggesting the Vatican could still “impose” certain elements of translations. In effect, the pope told him that’s not what his ruling means at all.

Yet on Friday, Francis basically took Benedict’s side in arguably the single most contentious liturgical debate of them all over the last twenty years, insisting that “for many” is the right way to express those for whom Christ died, rather than the alternative “for all.”

[…]

It’s not clear what those statements may mean from a policy point of view - whether Francis will insist that bishops’ conferences translate the phrase that way across the board or allow them to make the decision for themselves, which appears to be the spirit of his recent edict.

It may not be utterly coincidental that Francis made his statements not long after Cardinal Reinhard Marx of Germany, having expressed “huge relief” that Liturgiam Authenticam is now a “dead end,” suggested the German bishops may take advantage of Francis’s new rules to maintain “for all” in their translation of the Mass.

Perhaps, this was an indirect way for Francis to say, “Not so fast.” At a minimum, it suggests that on at least one front in the notorious “liturgy wars,” the two pontiffs are in sync. …

Wos, I'm curious enough to ask you what you think you're accomplishing. If you look through these threads, particularly this one, you'll see that there are practically no responses to your posts.. The subject matter is of limited interest to anyone other than yourself, and I think we can assume that you've already read them. Worse, nobody else is posting much of a Catholic nature at all.
Knowing you to be a man of a large thesaurus, what are you trying to accomplish? I don't think boring me to tears is the end goal. If it is, I give you my word that you've succeeded. :lol:

I will ask hugo's question again, in a different spirit:

Wozzie, what are we talking a out here?

I won't insult you, or insist that you are boring us. But I would like to share a discussion about something. These links to John Allen & friends aren't catching on.
================================================
October has come and gone, with the 100th Anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun. Mary's message at Fatima didn't get much discussion.

We are in November now. My pastor gave a rousing sermon on our care for the souls in Purgatory, how to offer indulgences for them, and other works of spiritual charity.

We are also looking at one year since the presidential election. My pastor leads a the 40,000-strong Novena For Our Nation. This is part of the nation-wide Holy League of Catholic men. On behalf of the Holy League, he sent some especially blessed combat rosaries to selected Catholic leaders in Washington.

If anyone wants to see the awesome email that tells the story of these particular combat rosaries, I can forward it to you. Send me a pm with your email addies.

Wow, talk about synchronicity. Since you're always goin' on (not in a bad way) about Fatima, I was gonna start a thread for the subject on your behalf when I got home (which was just now, actually). Sure, if you want to, you're free (don't need my permission, of course) to start talkin' bout Fatima here, but to me, this thread has never seemed particularly apt for protracted, single-topic discussions. Rather, I've always seen it as a sort of casual, community bulletin-board for general-interest Catholic miscellany whether of a local or global level (parish news, feast-day blessings, regional events or Vatican/Papal tidbits, etc.).

But sure, go for it.

A bulletin board. I'd never had that thought before, but I like it. I've been wracking my poor excuse for a brain trying to figure out how all those articles fit together. And asking for an explanation because I couldn't figure out the pattern when, in essence, they're just posted because someone might find them interesting. Random bits of Catholic reporting. How stupid of me. And thanks for doing it, Wos.

I rarely start threads. I am such a lightening rod that any thread I start tends to lose any track by the third post.

As "Catholic bulletin board" goes... I don't think about the Pope every week. But I do think about the souls in Purgatory, every day.

You can always post a link to Cousin Del's Livestream Purgatory Prayer Closet.
