The Importance of Sacrament of Penance

The Sacrament of Penance or also known as reconciliation or confession is one of the Sacraments of the Catholic Church. It is where we confess our sins to the Priest and where he has us absolution and our penance. Recently, I've been looking for churches near me that has a schedule of confession. Some of the church people do not know the schedule, and some said it depends on the schedule of the priest. I wondered why some of these churches have no confession schedule posted in their parish or online. Is the Sacrament of Penance no longer important today?

The Traditionalist and the Modernist Catholics (Part 1)

During the early 19th and late 20th century, modernism slowly entered the church and the modernists wanted to reform it. But it was easily defeated by Pope St. Pius X when he restored the Tridentine Mass to its original form and spread catechism to every church and school. The modernist clergy cannot do anything but return to tradition. Until a modernist pope, Pope John XXIII opens the Second Vatican Council. And made many reforms until his successor, Pope Paul VI, executed most of its plans, including the reform of the Holy Mass, known as the Novus Ordo Mass. This event divided the Catholics, which are The Modernists and the Traditionalists. Today, these two types of Catholics are having a battle of words including social media. In this article, we will discuss these two Catholics, their beliefs, and their attitudes. We will also share how we approach them and give advice to these two.

What is Valentine’s Day?

On February 14th, many men will purchase flowers and chocolates and go on a date with their girlfriend or wife. Couples value this day highly because it is a romantic day for them. But when did the celebration of Valentine's Day start and why is it called Valentine's Day?

What is Feng Shui?

This February, many Chinese are preparing to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Initially, only the Chinese celebrated it, but some countries, including the Philippines, began to celebrate it as it was recognized as one of their holidays. Feng Shui masters are being hired by many individuals, including entrepreneurs, to seek assistance and bring prosperity to their businesses. But the question is, is it safe to use Feng Shui for Catholics? Let's begin by discovering what Feng Shui is.

Fiducia Supplicans: The Philippine Reaction

It was reported that the document of the Catholic Church allowing the blessing of same sex couples by priests was welcomed by the Filipino Bishops. We know that this will bring about a mixed reaction from the Filipino lay people. But for those who feel negatively about this, hold on your reins, being obedient to the will of the Pope as programmed by his synodalities, via his artistic Prefect of the Dicastery of the Congregation of the Faith, Cardinal Victor Manuel Fernandez doesn’t necessarily translate to a tragedy.

On Communion in the Hand

The insistence of the modern sacerdotal movement to totally eliminate the communion using the tongue is part of the diabolical plot to undermine worship of the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist. Although, we accept the Novos Ordo Missae, we deplore the awful persistence of modern priests instructed by their bishops to prevent the practice of communion in the tongue despite of its being legitimate and true to Church tradition.

Mimicking Christ, Our King

Many are wondering why Cyrus, the Great had been sent by God as His instrument or even as prefiguration or even as prototypical as of his reigning on earth. Cyrus was not even a Jew nor Christian but could be numbered as among the pagan rulers of the earth. But God works in mysterious ways and is quite amazing in the manner by which He conveys His message of faith to His people. But God is the king without precedence and he does not need any cause for His royalty nor honor as no one among the kings could be as Holy as He is.

Halloween: The Protestant Jubilee

The Walpurgis Night or the most important witches’ night occurs on Halloween before All Saints’ Day. Accordingly, during this magical night, warlocks and witches performing their rituals will be granted by the Devil their hearts’ desires. It was also the eve of the feast when all Catholics get ready to honor all their friends in heaven. It was October 31, 1517 when according to Philip Melanchthon, Martin Luther, a priest of the Catholic Church nailed his 95 theses on the door of the All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, Electorate of Savoy of the Holy Roman Empire. This event as disputed by protestant scholars couldn’t possibly be known to Melanchthon as he only transferred to Wittenberg a year later. This makes us ask the question, is it impossible to know something of the recent past if one isn’t a resident of the place.

As God is Their Witness

The present conflict between Israel and Hamas presents an update of a long existing conflict concerning between the resettled Jews and the people of Palestine. Even if the DNA typology of these peoples would show a common ancestry, it would be a futile attempt to establish peace between co-existing Israeli and Palestinian states side by side. The simple reason is that both their state religions are hostile to one another in a common claim that the lands that they both claim are God-given.

Esau and Jacob in Today’s Priesthood

Rebekah may not be rebuked for her connivance into deceiving Jacob's father, Isaac for giving Jacob the blessing reserved for the firstborn son. This is because even when the twins were still in the womb, Rebekah was already told by the Lord: “Two nations are in your womb and two people born of you shall be divided; the one shall be stronger than the other, the elder shall serve the younger -Genesis 25:23

Ishmael and Isaac in Today’s Priesthood

It was Sarah's idea, being advanced in age, that Abraham would father an heir through their slave, Hagar. Hagar naturally accepted the prospect of being mother to Abraham's heir for she had nothing to lose but gain. And then, the patriarch's firstborn, Ishmael came to be.

Cain and Abel in Today’s Priesthood

Cain was a tiller of the land while Abel pastured his flock. As Adam's sons, they both have access to God. In their respective altars, they could offer God their very best so that God in turn, can acknowledge as His own like Adam before Eden was lost.
