THE CHRISTIAN LIFE IN THE MODERN WORLD


THE BODY OF CHRIST

Reverence for Communion: Jesus’ Words Mean What He Says; Does Our ‘Amen’?


So the teaching is clear. But is the teaching lived? To walk into many Catholic churches or liturgies one does not get the impression that anything particularly special is going on there.


A Methodist convert once said to me how surprised he was that in his Methodist church communion was received kneeling and at a rail, but when he came to the Catholic Church, which confesses the True Presence, the Eucharist was received so casually, standing and in the hand...

CHRISTIAN TRUTH

10 Reasons Why Homosexual “Marriage” is Harmful and Must be Opposed.

 

The sexual revolution wants to tear down God’s marriage.

But are we going to sit on our hands while that happens?

We are being hit with anti-family propaganda. Constantly. On college campuses -- you even get called names for saying that a boy is a boy and a girl is a girl.  

I know that you probably hear it.  So – are you ready to take action and help defend the truth?

EUCHARISTIC MYSTERY

Eucharist: An Examination of Conscience on Catechetics and Liturgical Practice

 

I must state that I had a strong belief in Christ’s Real Presence in the Eucharist even as a young child. But I cannot credit my catechetical experience for that. I believed because I was an altar boy during the first years of the liturgical reform of Vatican II.

 

We still had strong liturgical practice that emphasized reverence for Our Lord in the Holy Eucharist...My faith came from this powerful liturgical experience.

 

That brings me to the second cause, I believe, of this decline in Eucharistic faith, namely our liturgical practices in the post-conciliar period.
