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.
It seems that feminism, or what was known before as women’s liberation movement has finally found its niche in American society.
It seems that the Catholic Church is lagging in its bid to modernize itself and be more relevant to the world particularly in the assignment of women clergy compared with other Christian Churches.
It seems that Erich von Däniken, George Tsouakalos and other outer space alien theorists a preponderance of evidence for extraterrestial or actual contacts from different world civilzations.
It would seem that miracles wrought by God concerning the Eucharist is wrath expressed in the violation of His Real Presence and His Holiness.
The Traditional Latin Mass, often known as the Tridentine Mass, has recently been mentioned in the Catholic media. Some faithful, including young ones, learn about this Holy Mass and begin to attend it rather than the Mass that is currently generally observed, the Novus Ordo Mass. It was then restricted by Pope Francis, which led to more disagreements between orthodox and modernist Catholics. With Sister Wilhelmina Lancaster's newly discovered incorrupt body and her attendance at this Holy Mass, the Traditional Latin Mass becomes a major issue in both Catholic media and social media. We have recently been accustomed to hearing about Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, Pope St. Pius X, and particularly Pope St. Pius V, who promulgated the Tridentine Mass by his Papal Bull, Quo Primum.
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.
It seems that priesthood in the Catholic church continues to be subverted.
It seems that for someone who is attracted to Islam there is a need to defer conversion.
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.
