On any bell curve, you are going to find the great mushy middle, with extreme ends of the spectrum on either side. In the case of the culture war, the far left side is dominated by radicals who are passionately committed to overturning the Christian order, imitating the Communist agenda in destroying marriage and family, and generally leading what Pope Benedict XVI called the “dictatorship of relativism.”

Anyone who but raises the question of God punishing the world today for sins runs the risk of mockery and derision. The critics reply that “That was the vengeful God of the Old Testament. Jesus was much nicer.” And while it can be very difficult to prove a cause-effect relationship in particular cases, we do know three things. 

First, God has a history of sending plagues and other punishments on mankind, as with the Noah and the flood, the plagues upon Egypt, the leprosy of Miriam, the messages of Akita and Fatima—they all validate the truth that God can and does occasionally send widespread punishments upon mankind.

Second, idolatry is a violation of the First Commandment and is particularly egregious when authorized by a pope. 

Third, the public worship of the occultic idol Pachamama in the Vatican, including its enshrinement before the main altar of St. Peter’s Church, was such an idolatry.

Author John Gravino connects a number of key dots, between heretical Church documents and sexual sin, and between the Pachamama worship and the outbreak of COVID-19.

The silly Sixties’ song “The Age of Aquarius” was wrong. It’s the Age of St. Joseph. Today more than ever does the universal Church need the example and intercessor of the foster father of Jesus Christ. Men, women, and children need the manly exemplar of human fatherhood, and the head of the Holy Family fits the bill in spades.

In the last 150 years, there has been more teaching, insights and conclusions about the husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary than in the previous 1900 years. Father Donald Calloway, MIC, has put everything you need to know about the role of St. Joseph in salvation history. You will be astonished, as I was, of how much you don’t know about the second greatest saint.

Catholics of the Eastern persuasion take fasting seriously. It looms large in their approach to penitential Seasons in the Church’s calendar. Fr. Hezekias Carnazzo (formerly Deacon Sabatino) founded the Institute of Catholic Culture, and has since served as its Executive Director. He also serves as the Director of the Office of Catechesis and Evangelization for the Melkite Greek Catholic Eparchy of Newton. And is the father of seven.

He is convinced that the sense of apathy and misunderstanding toward the great benefits of fasting has got to change. Fasting not only has health benefits but it is badly needed today for Christians who desire to grow and self-mastery and love of Christ. Listen in!

The Catholic Church will be dealing with the fallout from the recent Apostolic Exhortation “Querida Amazonia” for many years to come. In this episode of the Patrick Coffin Show, I sit down with the editor of Catholic World Report and Ignatius Insight, author Carl Olsen to talk about the text of the document, and how Catholics are to view it in light of previous magisterial documents.

The big question Catholics around the world are asking is, why was the Synod called in the first place?

I saw Jean Vanier speak at two different conferences. The first was in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, in the mid-80s; the second on a farm retreat north of Toronto in the early 90s. It was at the latter where I met and spoke with him briefly. I had read a couple of his early books.

If you are Canadian and Catholic, Jean Vanier is a household name to you.

A dozen schools are named for him across the country, and he won dozens of accolades and honorary degrees—all manner of worldly admiration.  

Under the inspiration of a Dominican priest named Father Thomas Philippe,  Jean Vanier as the founding myth goes, visited two mentally handicapped man and decided to have them come live with him and that was the beginning of L'Arche, now a worldwide Federation of group homes for the mentally handicapped

When he walked into a room or strode casually up to a lectern before a large crowd, his beautiful face always seem to be beaming.

His tall frame radiated a palpably peaceful aura, which has been compared to being in the presence of St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who was a friend of his.

We now know that Jean Vanier was also a serial sexual predator.  
After all the heartache and anger and disillusionment felt by millions of Catholics since the long Lent of 2002, now JEAN VANIER? You kidding me?

The truth is, he seems to have learned is diabolical strategies for taking full advantage of women from none other than Father Thomas Philippe, his mentor in spiritual father, a despicable and manipulative fraud.

In this video, Patrick asks the questions that have not been answered about this tragic, shocking fall of a man once hailed as a living saint.

* The Holy Office punished Thomas Philippe in 1956 with severe restrictions and sanctions, which means his despicable behavior was known by the Vatican. Why was this not flagged decades earlier?

* We know of 14 women who say they were abused by Philippe long *after* his formal punishment for doing the same thing in the early 50s. How many more lives were badly damaged because Vanier gave him cover—and access to a steady flow of vulnerable women?

* Pope Francis publicly mentioned that he had talked to Vanier the week before he died in May 2019, and went out of his way to praise his life work. As of this moment, the Pope has not said a word, either about the victims nor the scandal itself. Why not?

* Finally, how could a man who lived a very public life as a model of morality and goodness have so successfully segmented and hid this level of evil?  

In addition to praying for his victims, and for his soul, I also pray for the community he started.

The prophetic witness of L'Arche is even more urgently needed today than it was in 1964.
