What Catholics Believe

Fr. Jenkins' Writings

"For the life of all flesh is in the blood." (Leviticus 17: 14)

     Some of the world's richest people are heavily investing in biomedical research to extend the human lifespan, most notably their own. From genetic engineering even to cryogenics (freezing bodies of the deceased in the hopes of reviving them and revitalizing them in the future), billions of dollars are

Exorcism and St. Michael the Archangel

     September 29 is the feast day of St. Michael the Archangel. The name "Michael" is actually a Hebrew statement meaning: "Who is like God!" It was St. Michael's challenge to the pretension of Lucifer (his fellow archangel, according to St. Thomas Aquinas), who claimed he was "as the

The Deposit of Faith

     Catholics believe that the truths of Divine Revelation are preserved for us in the twin fonts of Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition – both of which come to us from the Church established by Christ, the Catholic Church. Martin Luther rejected the Church and her Tradition, and insisted

Francis: Magisterium or Tragisterium?

     In his homily during the modernist liturgy for the new order feast of Corpus Christi (June 23, 2019), Francis referred to “the Eucharist, Jesus who becomes bread, this simple bread that contains the entire reality of the Church” and he remarked that: “… there we find

Karol Wojtyla – A Man of the World

Fr. Leo Heinrichs — Martyr of the Holy Eucharist

 

     Fr. Leo Heinrichs knelt down before the Blessed Sacrament in his parish church to prepare for Sunday Mass. At 5:30 a.m. on February 23rd, the new pastor found Saint Elizabeth's Church in Denver, Colorado, still shrouded in the chill darkness of a winter's night, illuminated by the

Love of the Sacred Heart

     Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus is as old as the Church itself. From the moment that the soldier’s spear opened the side of Jesus Christ hanging in death upon the Cross – a moment immortalized by Saint John the Apostle in his Gospel – the small

Discipline in the Home
