We were more numerous than expected on Saturday!   It’s true that many more Catholics should have been at the Superdome Rosary of Reparation. But with the short notice given of Fr. James Martin being the Loyola commencement speaker, plus the busy schedules we all contend with, some wondered if any Catholics would show up. By the grace of God, we showed up and to the greater glory of God.

 

Most graduates we spoke with were unaware of who Fr. James Martin was or what he stood for. The number of thumbs up and other displays of agreement were much more numerous than those that disagreed. Of course this was not the perception held by Fr. James Martin whose tweet about the Rosary of Reparation was basically name-calling. Not much intellectual merit there.

I’m attaching a group photo as your memento. Not all of us are in the picture, as it was taken well after the planned end of the Rosary of Reparation. However, this might have been an historic moment, because when was the last time the Rosary was prayed publicly in front of the Superdome?

 

St. Joan of Arc, pray for us!

St. Louis Crusader King of France, pray for us!

St. Ignatius of Loyola and all the saints of the Society of Jesus, pray for us!

Pro-LGBT priest Fr. James Martin, S.J. is set to give the commencement speech for Loyola University at the Superdome in New Orleans on May 12th. Join faithful Catholics in a Rosary of Reparation.
Rev. James Martin, S.J. should NOT be addressing students because he:
  1. Said Catholics should “reverence” homosexual “marriage”
  2. Supports transgenderism for children
  3. Favors homosexual kissing during Mass
  4. Called dissident, pro-homosexual nun a “saint”
  5. Welcomed award from group condemned by the USCCB

For these reasons, I urge you to join a Rosary of Reparation:

When: Saturday, May 12th at 8 AM

Where: Downtown New Orleans Poydras St. and Lasalle St.
(Metered parking is available on Poydras St. and side streets)

Why: Because, as a Catholic priest, Fr. Martin promotes unnatural vice within the Church. He also favors transgenderism for children and undermines the sacred institution of marriage.

To learn more about the “Rainbow Jesuit’s” anti-Catholic statements, please read on…1. Fr. Martin said Catholics should “reverence” homosexual unions

On September 5, 2017, at Fordham University, Fr. Martin contradicted Church teaching, saying: “I have a hard time imagining how even the most traditionalist, homophobic, closed-minded Catholic cannot look at my friend [in a same-sex “marriage”] and say, ‘That is a loving act, and that is a form of love that I don’t understand but I have to reverence.'”

2. Fr. Martin supports transgenderism for children

On October 2, 2017, Fr. Martin posted comments supporting a young boy who presented himself as a girl to receive religious education at a Catholic parish. When the parish offered to teach the boy as long as he presented himself according to his biological sex, registered on his baptismal certificate, Fr. Martin objected, calling the Church’s decision “a scandal.” In this case, Fr. Martin supported transgender confusion, which, according to the American College of Pediatricians, is a form of child abuse.

3. Fr. Martin favors homosexual kissing during Mass

During a presentation at Villanova University on August 29, 2017, Fr. Martin told a practicing homosexual who attends Mass, “I hope in 10 years you will be able to kiss your partner [in church] or, you know, soon to be your husband.” How can a Catholic priest promote the public display of sacrilegious and sinful behavior during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass? How can he favor homosexual “marriage”?

4. Fr. Martin called dissident, pro-homosexual nun a “saint”

During a podcast on June 16, 2017, Fr. Martin said that Sr. Jeannine Gramick, a nun censured by the Vatican for her pro-homosexual activism with New Ways Ministry, should be declared a “saint.” Catholics should know that Sister Gramick has a record of defiant disobedience. In 1999, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, under then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, permanently prohibited her “from any pastoral work involving homosexual persons.”

“By suggesting Sr. Gramick is worthy of sainthood,” Church Militant observes, “Fr. Martin ‘blesses’ her revolt against Church teaching, while propagating her heresy.”
Source: Jesuitical podcast (minute 32:21)

5. Fr. Martin welcomed award from group condemned by the USCCB

On October 30, 2016, Fr. Martin accepted the “Bridge Building Award” from the pro-homosexual group New Ways Ministry. However, as president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Cardinal Francis George, condemned the group, stating: “Their claim to be Catholic only confuses the faithful regarding the authentic teaching and ministry of the Church with respect to persons with a homosexual inclination. Accordingly, I wish to make it clear that, like other groups that claim to be Catholic but deny central aspects of Church teaching, New Ways Ministry has no approval or recognition from the Catholic Church and that they cannot speak on behalf of the Catholic faithful in the United States.”

Given the confusion and ambiguity promoted by wolves in sheep’s clothing, let us reiterate what the Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches regarding homosexuality.

Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.” They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved. (2357)

And here is an excerpt from the writings of a different type of Jesuit, Father John A. Hardon’s Catholic Catechism on Homosexuality:

46. What is the Church’s basic teaching on homosexuality?
The Church distinguishes between the homosexual condition or tendency and homosexual actions. Homosexual actions lack the essential and indispensable purpose. They are therefore intrinsically disordered. Consequently homosexual actions can never be approved (HP3).

47. Are homosexual actions morally evil by their very nature?
Yes, they are gravely sinful no matter how strong a person’s homosexual tendency may be (HP3).
Source: Catholic Catechism on Homosexuality

***

We live in a time when Church teaching is under attack from all sides on the very controversial issue of homosexual sin.On Judgment Day, we don’t want to have to answer to God for staying silent while young Catholics were subjected to an address by a priest who contradicts Church teaching on the crucial issue of homosexual sin.

That is why I urge you to please join concerned Catholics in a crucial and historic Rosary Reparation on:

Saturday, May 12th at 8 AM

Downtown New Orleans at Poydras St. and Lasalle St.
(Metered parking is available on Poydras St. and side streets)

Bring your rosary. Invite your friends. Stand up for the perennial teachings of the Holy Catholic Church.

There is so much to say and share about the Rosary Rally of Reparation and Protest at Spring Hill College. There is always a special grace and joy when Catholics come together to defend the sacred teachings or Our Lord Jesus Christ from those defiling and mocking those same teachings. And the historic moment when faithful Catholics did take a stand will be remembered on the Day of Judgment.

There is already a TFP Student Action video up on Youtube:

Someone asked where is Fr. Martin’s next speaking engagement. Well, he was in New York at the Met:

Pure Goodness at Work

March 6, 2017

Last January 21, just a few days before the March for Life in Washington DC, there was another “March” in the nation’s capital. It was called The Women’s March on Washington DC. It shocked the world for its vulgarity, profanity and pro-abortion stance. They certainly did not represent my mother, my sisters, my nieces nor the immense majority of the American ladies I know.

 

You can read about it here:

https://www.tfpstudentaction.org/media/videos/march-for-life-vs-womens-march-amazing-differences

https://www.tfpstudentaction.org/news/what-i-saw-at-the-womens-march-vulgarity-everywhere

 

On March 8th, the same group that organized the Women’s March on Washington DC, is organizing A Day Without a Woman. https://www.womensmarch.com/

 

If evil triumphs because good men do nothing, it is even more so when good women do nothing.

 

So please read Mr. Robert Ritchie’s press release, forward it to your friends and see what you can do this Wednesday, March 8th.

 

God bless you and your families.

Thomas Drake

Pro-Life Ladies Oppose Feminist ‘Day Without Women’

 

Contact: Maria Ritchie, 717-309-1990

SPRING GROVE, Penn., March 2, 2017 /Christian Newswire/ — “The level of any civilization is the level of its womanhood” – Archbishop Fulton Sheen.

   Lady Day started as an idea posted on the Catholic Lady Blog by Colette Zimmerman.

She wanted to offer pro-life women an alternative to the March 8th general strike called “A Day Without Women,” which urges women to stay home from work in support for radical causes like Planned Parenthood, abortion, and same-sex “marriage.”

These are the same pro-abortion feminists who marched on Washington, DC in the shockingly vulgar March for Women.

Colette Zimmerman’s post went viral, and a national event was born. It’s called Lady Day.

Hundreds of small groups of pro-life ladies are gearing up to celebrate the purity and goodness of true womanhood on Wednesday on March 8th.

They plan to go to work in an especially ladylike manner, in elegant and modest dresses, to go out to tea with friends, and to do works of charity.

These inspirited ladies are rallying around the slogan: “Pure Goodness at Work.”

Moriah Webinger from Chardon, OH comments: What a wonderful idea! I have 15 women already signed up for tea – it is a treat really! We are also informing the local paper too.

   I want my daughters to be truly feminine; pure and good, said Brenda Asso a mother of nine from Lancaster, PA. Abortion! Never! Don’t even think about it. It’s contrary to our maternal instinct, she said.

Marie Sallinger from Lafayette, LA says the idea of celebrating true womanhood is “inspired.” She adds: I understand the evils of feminism and want to do something about it. I have many good Christian lady friends. And I’m so happy to celebrate this day as a lady.

The prayers and the participation of hundreds of women in Lady Day aim to celebrate true womanhood, which in turn, fosters higher moral standards in society and among children.

For more information on Lady Day celebrations, please visit:www.returntoorder.org/2017/02/pure-goodness-work
