Hail Tradition!

From Rorate Caeli:

So…the 2016 Mercy Jubilee was not the popular success that had been foreseen. What was the solution?

The Pope had the Capuchins bring to Rome from different points of Italy two of the most popular and traditional saints of the 20th Century, great Apostles of Penance and Confession: Sts. Padre Pio and Leopold Mandic.

And the crowds suddenly appeared for the venerable Relics!

  1. A friend e-mailed me: “Francis is no doubt telling himself that the crowds have nothing to do with ‘tradition.’ They’re all there because it’s a year of ‘mercy’ (and another year of the usual chaotic and confused papal thinking).”

    My sister – when she was three or so – had a friend called “Pooky” who lived in our cellar.

    Have you every read Hostage To The Devil by the late Fr Malachi Martin?
    It is a study of various Cases of Exorcism.
    I say this because of your reference to “Pooky”.
    Modernism and Materialism ignores spirituality. Dawkins (as an example) and His emphasis on the genes (the latest -if you are interested is in so called language genes ‘FOXP2’ . .
    The Faith requires we look through spiritual eyes at Reality and this means being sensitive to ‘Temptations’ the thoughts and ideas (so called creative ideas in particular) that come to Us.
    It is always a good idea for instance to use Holy Water in and around Our Homes and especially when infants have imaginary friends.
    The 20 century opened the door to Temptation and look what a globally destructive century. Never lower your spiritual guard in these Days.

    (My imaginary friend was known as “Jimmy.” probably he was Satan. He was good company, anyway.)

    My granddaughter had an acquaintance – don’t recall his name (it was a he) who used to come up from the basement to talk to her when she was about 2-3 years old. The last time he did so, she was sitting in her high chair and she scolded him and said something like “GO, I DON’T LIKE YOU!”
