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 Greatest Love in the Holy Mass

Have you experienced of doing something for your love or for other people, but still, they ignore you. Is it pain that everything you've done to them, yet they still don't remember your sacrifice. Now you know this feeling you must understand that there's one person who also experience this and it is not just days, months or five years, but it's been 2000 years and still, the people ignored his sacrifice, and that person is our Lord Jesus Christ, who has been tortured, crucified and died because He love us. Even so many years have passed, still He loves us and show it in the form of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Where the greatest love of all was given, the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.

Traditionis custodes: Imprisoning the Traditional Latin Mass

When Pope John XXIII called for the second Vatican II Council, reformation has been prepared until it was executed by Pope Paul VI. Many changes have been made that swayed from the Sacred Tradition such as the religious freedom, removing the minor orders in the Holy Orders and mostly, changes in the Holy Mass which is the promulgation of the Novus Ordo Missale (New Order of Mass). Many bishops and clergy are againts to this reform which results on institutions of Traditional Catholic Societies. While the Vatican II changes occurred in the church and to the faithful. There are clashing of clergies happening inside the Church, this is the Traditionalist against the Modernist and the Traditionalist against the Traditionalist.

Defending the Catholic Faith  (Part 3)

In our previous defense of the Catholic Faith, we defend the nature of God that we Catholics believed. Defending our faith also teaches others including the next generation. Today we defend other topics that the protestants usually criticized about us Catholics.

Defending the Catholic Faith  (Part 2)

Defending the Catholic Faith is a duty that we must fulfill including the priest and those who serve in the church. It is not only defending our soul from our persecutors but also strengthens the faith of those who listen during the defense, including our loved ones. Previously, we shared three topics about the Catholic Faith that we answered to defend it. Now we would like to share more:

Defending the Catholic Faith  (Part 1)

Catholicism is not just another religion in the world, but the religion that only Christ built upon St. Peter the apostle. But since this is the church that our Lord created, the devil will do anything to destroy it. Not just outside the church, but also from within. They will attack our Catholic faith and those who had a lack of knowledge which has a possibility to weaken its faith, either they will leave the church or chose not to believe in God. Many us are not knowledgeable about our Catholic faith, mostly to our generation today because of lack of Catechism that most churches are not providing anymore since Vatican II. We must defend our faith not just from other religion such as the Protestants, but also from our fellow Catholics whom are influenced by the Protestants and Modernist. As Catholics, our faith is important. This defense is not just for our own soul but also to others including our loved ones. In this article, we will provide things in our Catholic faith that we must defend.

The Two Holy Masses

Now that the word about the Traditional Latin Mass or the Tridentine Mass has spread all over the world including the internet. There are questions that were frequently asked about these two Holy Mass, the Traditional Latin and the Novus Ordo Mass. Many were confused because of the information that was posted on the social media. As the Traditionalist such as Taylor Marshall and Archbishop Schneider explained the errors of the New Mass, the modernist such as the Vatican and some of the Priests defend the Novus Ordo Mass and criticized the Traditional Mass. We've been posting articles about the Traditional Latin Mass to educate our readers, but let's look at the point of view of some Traditionalist, modernist about these two Holy Mass and what is our view.

The Orans

On July 16, 2023 during the Memorial of our Lady of Mt. Carmel, Archbishop Victor Bendico of CBCP and also archbishop of Capiz, released circular no. 2023-03 on the question as whether the faithful are allowed to hold or raise hands during the Lord's prayer in the Mass. He indicates Pope Francis' catechesis last March 14, 2017 that everyone can do the raise hand gesture and to hold hands of Our Father. In recent years, some churches stop using Orans to the faithful, but because of this statement of the CBCP, it brings confusion for some of the faithful who don't know if they will use this gesture or not. Is the Pope and CBCP correct about this matter? Before we answer that, let's take a look of the origin of the Orans.

The Marian Apparition in Lipa (Part 2)

To Continue about the apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Lipa, we shared some of the similarities of this Apparition to the previous apparition in the part one of these articles. The sign, the number fifteen, her name and the suffering and sacrifices of the seer.There are those who may claim that Sr. Teresita or the people at the Mount Carmel Monastery are aware of other apparitions and are imitating them. But here are some other proofs that the Apparition in Lipa is true.

The Marian Apparition in Lipa (Part 1)

On August 7, 2023, Dr. Robert Masigno, President of Confraternity of Our Lady of Mediatrix of all Grace, sent a message to the CBCP President, Bishop Pablo Virgilio David about the Vatican's letter prohibiting them to host the celebration of the Feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary in Our Lady Mount Carmel in Lipa, Batangas this September 12. But why does the Vatican prohibit them to host this Marian Event? The reason is the apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Lipa to Sr. Teresita on September 12, 1948. Is this apparition true or just created by a woman who wants attention? Or a devil in disguise to fool this nun just like the exorcist, Fr. Cabading stated? Before we answer that, let us share a brief history of the Apparation of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Lipa.

What is the Eucharist?

We Christians yearn to see our Lord Jesus Christ, to speak with Him, to hug Him, and to hold His hand. We want to be near Him. We forget that we are already close to Him and never notice it because we live in this modern era. Previous generations, prior to Vatican II, were aware of this, but some of us today are not. Unfortunately, some of our priests today do not teach this to the people because some of our churches do not have catechism. Some were influenced by protestants as a result of Vatican II. When we participate in the Holy Mass, we are physically and spiritually near to Christ. Some of us, together with our guardian angels, adore it. The others, regrettably, disrespect it both consciously and unknowingly. The Holy Eucharist, which consists of the Body and Blood of Christ, is what I'm referring to. Let's review the fundamentals of the Holy Eucharist by responding to these often asked questions.

The Feast of Corpus Christi

This June 8 and June 11, the church celebrates the Feast of Corpus Christi (from the Latin word “Body of Christ"), also known as the Solemnity of the Holy Body and Blood of Christ. Catholics are obliged to attend Holy Mass on this day. We celebrate this feast to remember the Real Presence of our Lord’s Body, Blood, Divinity and His Soul in the Holy Eucharist.
