    Costly Truth – A Homily for the 20th Sunday of the Year Msgr. Charles Pope • August 18, 2018 • In the Gospel this Sunday, we continue with Jesus’ great treatise on the Eucharist (John 6).Although many of the Jewish listeners who hear Him speaking in the synagogue at Capernaum are grumbling and murmuring in protest at His insistence that they eat His flesh and drink His blood, Jesus does not back down. In fact, He “doubles down” and quite graphically teaches a very real (as opposed to symbolic) call to eat His flesh and drink His blood. Let’s...

 (New Testament) John 3 John Testifies Again About Jesus 22 After this, Jesus and his disciples went out into the Judean countryside, where he spent some time with them, and baptized. 23 Now John also was baptizing at Aenon near Salim, because there was plenty of water, and people were coming and being baptized. 24 (This was before John was put in prison.) 25 An argument developed between some of John’s disciples and a certain Jew over the matter of ceremonial washing. 26 They came to John and said to him, “Rabbi, that...

 (New Testament) John 3 Jesus Teaches Nicodemus 3 Now there was a Pharisee, a man named Nicodemus who was a member of the Jewish ruling council. 2 He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the signs you are doing if God were not with him.” 3 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.[a]” 4 “How can someone be born when...

    Our Hearts Are Broken, but the Church Must RebuildMichael J. Lichens Like just about every Catholic in the Anglophone world, I felt every emotion possible while reading the Grand Jury Report on the priest-abuse in Pennsylvania. Three hundred priests had sexually assaulted numerous souls in their care. I wanted to vomit, I wanted to toss my computer against the wall, and I know I wept bitterly at different points. As I was flying, I didn’t have much room to react.The word that occurred to me over and over, however, was satanic. No, I’m not implying that anybody was worshipping the...

    On Sunday, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation made an official demand to Defense Secretary James N. Mattis to “immediately and comprehensively” investigate Air Force Brig. Gen. E. John Teichert. At issue is Teichert’s website, called “Prayer at Lunchtime for the United States,” in which the commander says he encourages “Bible-believing Americans to take time to specifically pray for our nation at lunchtime every day.” Teichert commands the 412th Test Wing and is also the installation commander, according to the Edwards website. On his religious website, Teichert goes only by “John,” and writes that he is an active duty brigadier general...
