Jesuit priest Thomas Reese on Twitter

I spent about 10 minutes looking at Jesuit priest, Thomas Reese's tweets on Twitter for the month of April. 

It's no surprise this Jesuit, like his counterpart Fr. James Martin, have a Twitter feed packed with liberal, progressive often anti-Catholic tweets promoting/sharing articles in favor of homosexuality, gay marriage, heresy, etc. 

Here are a few from the month of April... 

This article is about a lesbian who says God called her to be a Methodist minister even though the Methodists are still battling within their denomination over homosexual clergy. 

Article quote: "Cullom came out as a lesbian during her senior year at LaGrange College, a United Methodist-affiliated school about 90 miles south of her home in Kennesaw, Ga.  For a time, she was engaged to another woman, but broke it off before seminary and has not had a partner since." 

"After delivering the sermon, she realized: “This is what I’m supposed to do.”
She had moved from “I won’t play in your sandbox” to “Wait a minute. It’s my sandbox. I’m going to play here. You can get out if you don’t like it.”
In her classes, she had learned about Martin Luther, John Wesley, Jarena Lee, Maria Stewart — Christians who pursued their call to preach in spite of the established church."


Reese seems to really, really like the potential prospect of a "married" abomination in the White House. He tweets articles about homosexual politician Pete Buttigieg over and over and over again. 

Buttigieg says: "My marriage to Chasten has made me a better man. And yes, Mr. Vice President, it has moved me closer to God. (applause) You may be religious and you may not. But if you are, and you are also queer, and you have come through another side of a period of wishing that you weren’t, then you know that that message, that this idea that there is something wrong with you, is a message that puts you at war not only with yourself but with your Maker. And, speaking only for myself, I can tell you that if me being gay was a choice, it was a choice that was made far far above my pay grade. And that the thing I wish the Mike Pences of the world would understand: that if you have a problem with who I am, your problem is not with me. Your quarrel, sir, is with my Creator."

There is so much wrong with that its hard to know where to begin. But lets start with the obvious, Buttigieg does not have a marriage. What he's got is a big old case of ABOMINATION and he's looking at an eternity in Hell if he doesn't repent and come out of it before his death. He cannot blame God for making him gay, no one is born gay. 

The Word of God is very clear that the only sexual relationship God approves is 1 man + 1 woman= marriage. That's it. 


Reese then tweets about Holy Communion for divorced and "remarried" full credit to Pope Humbleness himself, Francis. God save us from this pope! 

Reese then shares an article about the pornographic vulgar show "Game of Thornes". 

Totally ignoring Catholic teaching on the subject of sex and violence on television and other media outlets. 




For Reese, note #29: 
"29. THE CHURCH AND RELIGIOUS GROUPS. For the Church, the first responsibility is the constant, clear teaching of the faith and, therefore, of objective moral truth, including the truth about sexual morality. In an era of permissiveness and moral confusion, this requires that the Church be a prophetic voice and, often, a sign of contradiction. The so-called "ethic" of immediate personal gratification is fundamentally opposed to integral human growth and fulfillment. Education for family life and indeed for responsible life in society requires formation in chastity and self-discipline. By contrast, pornography and wanton violence can blind individuals to the divine image in the human person, can weaken marriage and family life and can do serious harm to individuals and to society itself. Wherever possible, the Church must join with other churches, denominations and religious groups in teaching and fostering this message. It must also make the best possible use of its own institutions and personnel to give education and formation concerning the media of social communications and their proper role in individual and social life. Special attention should be given to assisting parents in their efforts.  Thus, media education belongs in Catholic schools and other educational programs, in seminaries,8 in formation programs of religious and secular institutes, in the continuing formation of priests and in parish programs for youth and adults. Priests and Religious in pastoral and educational work should themselves be discrimating consumers of media who give good example in what they read and view."


From there Reese pushes a growing trend of people finding their faith in a new "religion" based on the witchcraft books "Harry Potter" and made popular by a podcast that reads the books and looks for spirituality in the fantasy fiction novels.  

Article quote
"Just about any text can be treated as sacred, Zoltan said. But, she added, “Harry Potter” is uniquely well suited because of its ubiquity — the book series has launched spinoffs, films, a Broadway play, a theme park, even an entire genre of music called “wizard rock” — and its overarching message of love."


Reese also shared "Heretic House"... a welcoming place for heretics to gather. 
(I am wondering when Reese and Fr. James Martin will be checking in.) 👀

Then Reese took a shot at Raymond Arroyo and EWTN tweeting this... 

Article quote: "EWTN's iconic host, Raymond Arroyo, no longer even makes any attempt to appear balanced when discussing the church. If his guest is an ally, he displays no inquisitiveness in his interviews. This is not a news program anymore but simply a propaganda arm of the anti-Francis, pro-Trump Catholic brigade. Last week's show was especially bad. 

First up was a segment with the "papal posse" — conservative writer Robert Royal and Fr. Gerald Murray — about the Washington appointment of Archbishop Wilton Gregory. Royal said that this appointment amounts to "Cardinal Wuerl by other means" and said he did not see this shift as a changing of the page. Arroyo said a Washington Catholic said the appointment amounted to "business as usual." Murray said Gregory needed to find out what happened in the McCarrick case, although there is nothing in the Washington archives that would explain how McCarrick came to be appointed to Washington. 

Later in the segment, Arroyo brought up Pope Francis' comments on the death penalty during a press conference on the plane back from Morocco. Murray said: "This is an extremely serious problem, Raymond, the pope does not have the power to change the teaching of the church … that the death penalty is moral in some cases." He said that if Hitler has been executed it would have been a good thing. Note to Murray: When you invoke Nazi analogies, you have almost always lost your argument. Arroyo suggested the death penalty allows people to get their soul in order before death.

Then the posse moved on to criticize the pope because of his defense of migrants, and Royal noted that in Europe, the people are not in agreement with the pope, a criterion never introduced during the pontificate of John Paul II on, say, the issue of contraception. He echoed the kind of nationalistic impulses that we hear from right-wing politicians here in the U.S. and in Europe."[clipped for length]

Personally, I thought this show was great and spot on. I love the "Papal Posse" and look forward to when they are on "The World Over"(EWTN). 


This last tweet has a gay flag as the centerpiece for a Vatican conference about war and violence and the hope that Francis will write an encyclical on non-violence and social change (I am guessing the flag is the key here- its all about the gays).  

Article quote: VATICAN CITY — Theologians, activists and bishops who took part in a Vatican conference earlier this month on the power of nonviolence to bring about social change are expressing hope that a future papal encyclical or teaching document will reexamine the Catholic Church's teachings on war. Participants in the April 4-5 meeting, co-hosted by Pax Christi International and the Vatican's Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, said the reflections shared by the about 80 attendees provided ample material for Pope Francis to consider for a possible encyclical."

"The April event was the second of its kind, following a 2016 meeting at the Vatican that reevaluated the church's long-held teachings on just war theory, a tradition that uses a series of criteria to evaluate whether use of violence can be considered morally justifiable."


I would remind ALL our clergy, you have a duty to the laity. 

In Christ,

I'm in Twitter jail again...over gender propaganda

This time for sharing my Catholic belief, which I believe DNA backs up, that God made them male and female-period. 

I said, "Science (DNA) says there are male and female. Period. Everything else is mental." 

For this grave offense I have been put in Twitter jail for 12 hours AFTER I am forced to delete the tweet because some snowflake couldn't deal with me sharing my opinion. 

Those of you not in Twitter jail, please feel free to share this insanity. 

I stand by my tweet.

God made them male and female. Period. 

In Christ, 

Julie @ Connecticut Catholic Corner

Finding a beautiful Catholic parish for Easter

Those of you who have followed my blog know that I have been a wandering Catholic for years now in search of a home parish. As my own home parish had become unbearable (see here). 

I have driven around Connecticut to different parishes within about 45 minutes of my home. I have gone to Mass at them and Confession. Some have great priests for Confession, but Mass like a mega church televangelist. 

There is one parish I keep going back to.

For a few months now I have been attending a beautiful baroque parish - the only baroque parish in the state of Connecticut actually- and I am really liking it. 

It's a Novus Ordo Mass, but its done well. The priest is very reverent. I've noticed a few women (including myself) wear veils and the people are for the most part, very quiet before and during Mass- that in its self is a world of difference from where I came from! 

There are NO bongo drums or piano's (thank you Jesus!), nor folk music. An organ, an actual beautiful organ! And not a felt banner in sight! 🙏

And did I mention its beautiful? 

Here are some photos I took on my cell phone before and after Mass today. 

There is one thing that bugs me though...they have a gorgeous altar rail that is completely unused! Such a shame! 

This is Saint Sebastian Church in Middletown, CT. 

I think I might have found my home. 😇

Happy and blessed Easter everyone!! 

In Christ,

Good Friday

How did and do so many Jews miss it?? 

All the signs, all the prophecy, all the proof and still they reject Him. 

From the Old Testament to the New Testament its there for all with eyes to see. 

Ezekiel 37 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition 

The Valley of Dry Bones
37 The hand of the Lord came upon me, and he brought me out by the spirit of the Lord and set me down in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. 2 He led me all around them; there were very many lying in the valley, and they were very dry. 3 He said to me, “Mortal, can these bones live?” I answered, “O Lord God, you know.” 4 Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them: O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord. 5 Thus says the Lord God to these bones: I will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live. 6 I will lay sinews on you, and will cause flesh to come upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and you shall live; and you shall know that I am the Lord.”

7 So I prophesied as I had been commanded; and as I prophesied, suddenly there was a noise, a rattling, and the bones came together, bone to its bone. 8 I looked, and there were sinews on them, and flesh had come upon them, and skin had covered them; but there was no breath in them. 9 Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, mortal, and say to the breath: Thus says the Lord God: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.” 10 I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood on their feet, a vast multitude.

11 Then he said to me, “Mortal, these bones are the whole house of Israel. They say, ‘Our bones are dried up, and our hope is lost; we are cut off completely.’ 12 Therefore prophesy, and say to them, Thus says the Lord God: I am going to open your graves, and bring you up from your graves, O my people; and I will bring you back to the land of Israel. 13 And you shall know that I am the Lord, when I open your graves, and bring you up from your graves, O my people. 14 I will put my spirit within you, and you shall live, and I will place you on your own soil; then you shall know that I, the Lord, have spoken and will act, says the Lord.”   

Matthew 27:50-53 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition 

50 "Then Jesus cried again with a loud voice and breathed his last. 51 At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook, and the rocks were split. 52 The tombs also were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised. 53 After his resurrection they came out of the tombs and entered the holy city and appeared to many." 

God bless you all this Good Friday!🙏

The Muslims are coming

Sorry to interrupt Holy Week with this message, but... 

Nations need to WAKE UP! 

Particularly nations that were once Christian and forsake their faith for secularism. 

The Muslims are coming and they are happy to take what you've tossed aside and make it there own. 

Look at Belgium today... 

"A Muslim party in Belgium says it's preparing to campaign for setting up an Islamic state there. Two candidates from the newly-established Islam party won seats in a recent municipal election."

How will they get out from what they've allowed? 

The Catholic Church had it right centuries ago... 
Fifth Lateran Council 1512-17 A.D. 
SESSION 12 - 16 March 1517 

 "We are suitably carrying out the duty of our office when we renew again that reform of the whole church and its affairs which we have accomplished with profit; when we plan to apply suitable remedies for the unchallenged observance of the reform and to make provision for cathedrals and metropolitan churches so that they may no longer be without their pastors; and when we supervise these remedies with ever-present attention and untiring efforts, by means of which we may be able to render the Lord's flock, which has been entrusted to our care, acceptable and submissive in the sight of the divine majesty. Our aim is also to crush the Turks and other infidels standing firm in the eastern and southern regions. They treat the way of true light and salvation with complete contempt and totally unyielding blindness; they attack the life-giving cross on which our Saviour willed to accept death so that by dying he might destroy death, and by the ineffable mystery of his most holy life he might restore life; and they make themselves hateful enemies of God and most bitter persecutors of the christian religion. Strengthened by defences not only spiritual but also temporal, we may be able, under God's guidance and favour, to oppose the bitter and frequent sallies by which, in wild rage, they move savagely amidst christian blood."

Europe has been flooded with Muslim immigrants and they are not assimilating into the European countries who have taken them in. 
Catholic Catechism: 2241 The more prosperous nations are obliged, to the extent they are able, to welcome the foreigner in search of the security and the means of livelihood which he cannot find in his country of origin. Public authorities should see to it that the natural right is respected that places a guest under the protection of those who receive him.Political authorities, for the sake of the common good for which they are responsible, may make the exercise of the right to immigrate subject to various juridical conditions, especially with regard to the immigrants' duties toward their country of adoption. Immigrants are obliged to respect with gratitude the material and spiritual heritage of the country that receives them, to obey its laws and to assist in carrying civic burdens.

These immigrants are not "respecting with gratitude the material and spiritual heritage" of the nations taking them in. 

No, they are working to change these nations into Muslim nations under Sharia Laws. 

What is happening in Europe is happening in the United States too. Take a closer look at Muslims Ilhan Abdullahi Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Harbi Tlaib of Michigan and pay attention to what they are saying and doing because they've got their feet in the door and that is all it takes. 

Quote: In her acceptance speech, delivered without an American flag, Congresswoman-elect Omar opened her speech in Arabic with the greeting, "As-Salam Alaikum, (peace be upon you), alhamdulillah (praise be to Allah), alhamdulillah, alhamdulillah." 

And Tlaib...

Quote: "In Michigan, meanwhile, Rashida Tlaib, the daughter of Palestinian immigrants, won a largely uncontested race for the open seat in state's heavily Democratic 13th congressional district. In Tlaib's acceptance speech, delivered with a Palestinian flag, she credited her victory to the Palestinian cause. "A lot of my strength comes from being Palestinian," she said."

It's no secret that Muslims seek to spread Islam around the world. Some of them fight physical wars to gain ground, others work their way in politically. 

The idiocy of the left in the U.S. cannot be underestimated. So many of our youth, our voting youth in particular are stupid. Plan and simple. They do not seem to know history at all. They can't see what is coming or the price that will be paid one day. Protestant and Catholic alike must oppose any and all foot holds by Muslims in this country or we will lose this country completely. 

Look at Europe. If you think it can't happen here in the United States you are deceiving yourselves. 

I weep for the care, love and beauty of our Holy Catholic Church in days gone by working so hard to protect Christianity and honor Our Lord. 

Sorry to interrupt Holy Week with this message, but...

[25]. "It is an insult to the holy name and a disgrace to the Christian faith that in certain parts of the world subject to Christian princes where Saracens[followers of Islam] live, sometimes apart, sometimes intermingled with Christians, the Saracen priests commonly called Zabazala, in their temples or mosques, in which the Saracens meet to adore the infidel Mahomet, loudly invoke and extol his name each day at certain hours from a high place, in the hearing of both Christians and Saracens and there make public declarations in his honour. There is a place, moreover, where once was buried a certain Saracen whom other Saracens venerate as a saint. A great number of Saracens flock there quite openly from far and near. This brings disrepute on our faith and gives great scandal to the faithful. These practices cannot be tolerated any further without displeasing the divine majesty. We therefore, with the sacred council's approval, strictly forbid such practices henceforth in Christian lands. We enjoin on catholic princes, one and all, who hold sovereignty over the said Saracens and in whose territory these practices occur, and we lay on them a pressing obligation under the divine judgment that, as true Catholics and zealous for the Christian faith, they give consideration to the disgrace heaped on both them and other Christians. They are to remove this offence altogether from their territories and take care that their subjects remove it, so that they may thereby attain the reward of eternal happiness. They are to forbid expressly the public invocation of the sacrilegious name of Mahomet. They shall also forbid anyone in their dominions to attempt in future the said pilgrimage or in any way give countenance to it. Those who presume to act otherwise are to be so chastised by the princes for their irreverence, that others may be deterred from such boldness."

Wake up Catholics, before its too late. 

In Christ,

Catholics dialoguing people into Hell

Why is the Great Commission so difficult to grasp for so many in the Catholic Church? 
Matthew 28:19-20  Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition 19 "Going therefore, teach ye all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world."
Not only does Jesus spell it out in the Gospel, we have examples of it in action all over the New Testament with the Apostles and other disciples. 

It's not a mystery. 

Yet the Catholic Church since Vatican II, especially with Francis at the helm, has turned the boat around in the other direction and has decided to leave people at death's door rather than help them aboard the Ark for their salvation. I just don't get it. 

From Salt & Light of notorious Father Rosica fame...comes a report boasting over an inter-religious youth gathering founded by President Obama's Faith Council guy, Eboo Patel. That should tell you all you need to know. 
Salt&Light: "Students from Madonna C.S.S. in Toronto organize the very first Interfaith Youth Alliance Movement event that brings together students from various school boards."

These poor befuddled lost youth thinking they are helping others are in fact doing them harm- potentially eternal harm. 

One young girl says "...we need to start bringing everyone together for the common good and start seeing how we can work together to accomplish our goals." 

If a Catholic wanted to do "good" for anyone outside the Faith they would try to bring them IN. Isn't that the "goal" Catholics are called to? 

What other "goal" should Catholics set when Christ gave us the "goal" of converting entire nations to the Catholic Faith? 

Should that not be a our priority? 

The same girl later says that "all religions are founded on the same values". 👀

Again, we see the chaos, destruction and evil that flowed after Vatican II.

1962 Pope John XXIII
Convokes Vatican II
In convening the Second Vatican Council, John XXIII envisions a renewal of the whole Church. Vatican Council II is now seen as a watershed event in this new openness toward Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, indigenous peoples, and others.

1964 Secretariat for Non-Christians
During the Council, Pope Paul VI establishes the Secretariat for Non-Christians as a sign and a structure of the Church’s desire to dialogue with followers of other religions. (In 1988, the Secretariat was renamed the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue.)

1964 Encyclical, Ecclesiam Suam
Issued by Pope Paul VI, this is the first papal document in history to promote interfaith dialogue.

1965 Second Vatican Council Ends
The Council produces ground-breaking documents on interreligious dialogue, religious liberty, and pluralism. In these documents, the Church recognizes and respects the presence of grace, truth, and holiness in other religions.

1967 Catholic Greetings to Muslims Worldwide
The Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue sends its first annual greeting to all the world’s Muslims at the end of Ramadan, a month of fasting.

1974 Asian Bishops, Evangelization in
Modern Day Asia
The bishops of Asia, where Christianity is a minority religion, publish this landmark document which argues that dialogue with all peoples, cultures, and religions is part of the Church’s mission.

1974 Synod on the Evangelization of the
Modern World
The synod declaration proclaims: “We wish to foster dialogue with non-Christian religions, so that we may reach a better understanding of the Gospel’s newness and of the fullness of Revelation.”

1975 Apostolic Exhortation, Evangelization in the
Modern World
In this exhortation, Pope Paul VI speaks of the Church’s respect and esteem for non-Christian religions and encourages Catholic contact with them.

1984 Dialogue and Christian Mission
On its 20th anniversary, the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue publishes “The Attitude of the Church Toward Followers of Other Religions: Reflections and Orientations on Dialogue and Mission”. This document places interfaith dialogue squarely within the scope of the Church’s mission.

The list goes on...(more here)

Did Vatican II decide the Great Commission was no longer needed? 

What are we all talking about "goals" and "good" for? 

People are going to Hell for eternity!  

Why are we not dialoguing about that? 

In Christ, 

Julie @ Connecticut Catholic Corner
