Inbox: how do I pray a penitent Rosary?

We’re coming up on the one year anniversary since Sister Agnes Sasagawa received a new message from her guardian angel on October 6th, 2019, and there is a renewed interest and questions about the story. WQPH continues to stand by the authenticity of the message as being from Sister Agnes. A reader writes us: How […]

America is at the crossroads too, the crossroads of a suffering world that is undergoing a crucifixion of Communism. And the long arm of providence is reaching out to America and is saying to America, “take up that cross–that cross of all the starving people of the world–take it up, bear it.” And America is presently carrying that cross.

Our great country does not know whose cross it is carrying. Actually, we are carrying a nobler cross that we know. We are bearing a nobler cross then we deserve. We have already saved the world from the Swastika, that would cross-out the cross and make a double cross. Now we must save the world from the hammer on the sickle. The hammer that would re-crucify men, and a sickle that would cut immature wheat in order that it would never be the Bread of Life.

And America’s role is to change these symbols so that, one day, men will carry hammers erect, and these hammers will look like crosses as they parade in the name of God. And the sickle will look like the moon under the Lady’s feet, to whom these broadcasts were dedicated, to bring you to God and to make Americans love one another unto the betterment of the world and a peace of human souls.

Fr. Mitch Pacwa’s homily for Wednesday, September 16th, 2020

Today we celebrate two martyrs: St. Cornelius, who is pope of Rome and St. Cyprian who was the bishop of the city of Carthage, which is on the coast of North Africa; a very ancient city from the 800s BC that have been destroyed by the Romans and remade then into a Roman city. It […]

Fr Ripperger: Levels of Spiritual Warfare

The above video is provided by the Sensus Fidelium apostlate. The following transcript is provided by WQPH. I tell people that I’m becoming famous just by telling everybody what the saints say. You don’t have to say anything original or phenomenal, you just have to tell people this is what the saints say and everybody […]

“The greatest persecution of the Church comes not from her enemies without, but arises from sin within the Church, and that the Church thus has a deep need to relearn penance, to accept purification, to learn forgiveness on the one hand, but also the need for justice. Forgiveness does not replace justice.”

 Ground Zero Cross at the World Trade Center site
Ask Father Maurice: “The Way” and the “Nazarene sect” mentioned in Acts

In the New Testament we hear Jesus saying “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.” After Jesus’s Resurrection, the Apostles were teaching and the words “the Way,” or the “Nazarene sect” are used in referencing Jesus’s teachings of the resurrection and salvation. It is not familiar to me. Does this text appear in any of the Sunday readings (A, B, C years)?

Gilbert: really hopeful things

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about hope–just the simple idea of it. Of course, we need hope more than ever today, but more importantly, we need real hope, which is to say: we need hope in real things. A year ago, it would have been a more difficult point to make–the idea of hoping […]

“Now we have to look at our society today and as there are those forces that say no to this, especially in the universities; is that rejection of The Word of God making more beauty to emanate from such people? Is it making more building-up to serve the needs of other people? Is this what we see going on on our streets for those who desecrate the statues?”

Ask Father Maurice: “the tables on which was the bread of the Presence”

In the Old Testament, there is a line which says “the tables on which was the bread of the Presence.” Is this about bread given to honor God’s presence?

At sunset, all who had people sick with various diseasesbrought them to him.He laid […]

Fr. Mitch Pacwa’s homily for Tuesday, August 26th, 2020

Jesus said,“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites.You are like whitewashed tombs, which appear beautiful on the outside,but inside are full of dead men’s bones and every kind of filth.Even so, on the outside you appear righteous,but inside you are filled with hypocrisy and evildoing. “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites.You build […]
