Thread. 1. It is vital that #CatholicTwitter gives full attention to the breaking scandal of Fr Mark Rupnik SJ, whose mosaic art earned him celebrity. Some aspects are as shocking as those of the McCarrick scandal – if not more so. Pope Francis's behaviour is inexplicable.
2. Rupnik was accused last year of spiritually and sexually abusing adult women from a Slovenian religious community. The Vatican knew of the allegations , Rupnik suspended but no prosecution because of a canonical statute of limitations. Unbelievable. And...
3. ... yet as @PillarCatholic explains Rupnik could have been prosecuted if the Vatican had chosen to 'waive prescription' (ie statute of limitations ignored). But there is worse.

Thread 🧵for #CatholicTwitter - I know that when I argue against withholding donations from church, it seems like I am speaking out of my own biased place. Guess what, I am. But like most things #Catholic, there is a both/and aspect that cannot be ignored. The idea that 1/
2/not giving will somehow "speak" to the diocese or USCCB is not realistic. Sure it will at some level, but what are the primary impacts when this happens? I'd like to break this down a bit from my own experience of 14 years in the parish office. The idea that all churches are 2/
3/rich is absurd. Each #Catholic parish is its own corporation & often operates in the red. You'd be surprised at heat & elec bills alone. Anyway, I digress. What happens to the $ when you put it in the basket? It goes into the operating acct which pays the church bills. 3/

#CatholicTwitter has been discussing universalism again and that conversation is overlapping with my unpacking of an experience I had when my fifth child was born last week. A thread 1/
A priest was arguing against universalism and defined freedom as the ability to do otherwise. He said universalism presumes that either God can't not love us or that ultimately, we can't not love God. And if we can't not love then we are not truly free. 2/
I’m not sure freedom always means having the ability to do otherwise. That's not how I experience freedom in the real world. 3/

I was first introduced to the Divine Mercy Chaplet a few years ago, when I joined a zoom rosary group. Although a Cradle Catholic, I had been away from the Church for a long time and was just easing my way back in. #divinemercy #catholic #catholictwitter, #thedivinemercychaplet,
I was nervous, as I couldn’t recall the last time I had said a rosary. I just prayed I would not be called on to recite any of the prayers, lest someone think I was a bad Catholic.
I was shocked when the group explained to me that they would be doing The Divine Mercy Chaplet before the Rosary.

“The Divine Mercy what?” I said to myself.

This past weekend, #CatholicTwitter learned ...

... that @GKCdaily gleefully selects Chesterton's most anti-Semitic quotes--drawing even from unreprinted writings--to disseminate them to its 145K followers;

1/5
... that not only does @chestertonsoc refuse to disavow @GKCdaily's anti-Semitism, but its prez Dale Ahlquist even wrote a rave review in its magazine of an anti-Semitic book by E. Michael Jones under the Jewish-sounding pseudonym Bradley Rothstein;


2/5
... and that both @SeanPDailey2, former editor of @chestertonsoc's magazine, and Kevin O'Brien (@thewordinc), the society's former spokesman, have publicly disavowed the Chesterton Society for its refusal to disavow @GKCdaily & others who celebrate Chesterton's antisemitism.

The “Restoring a Nation” conference is underway:

**Another World is Possible**

Great to meet so many people in person. This is largely a #CatholicTwitter meet up.

Great opening from @gjpappin, @PatrickDeneen & @SohrabAhmari.

🧵🧵 Tweets from the conference: ImageImageImage
Wonderful talks - @PatrickDeneen expressed that this conversation cannot be reduced to a critique of liberalism (left/right), but being “post-liberal,” as @PostlibOrder is named, is about a positive vision predicated on the common good with creative solutions.
A wonderful, powerful talk by @DrScottHahn on the role of the family and the role of grace in civilization.

And @ccpecknold started his talk with an invocation to remember the poor and ended with his beautiful reflection on civic altars - and the duty to crush foul ones. ImageImage

My reflections on today's Gospel, 26th Sunday of ordinary time year C 

The story of Lazarus and the rich man. A not so strange nor foreign story to Christians.
I was pondering about  what could have been the offence of the rich man that warranted his going to hell.
The bible did not record the rich man to have faulted the laws of Moses, but we are meant to understand that the consequences of negligence to his neighbor brought forth his punishment.

Some teachings of the church helped me draw my inference that the negligence was the cause
*In the penitential rites of the mass "The church pleads for God's mercy for the sins committed by words, deeds, or omissions.

*Jesus teaches us that whatsoever we do to the least of our brethren, that we do unto him.

#CatholicTwitter #CatholicChurch #Soul #pain 1/ Fr Ephrem has been talking about the soul in his recent sermons. Today’s Gospel (12th Sunday after Pentecost) is about love. The soul is very much apart of God’s love, all our senses are taken from the soul.
2/
Like a corpse, the “spiritually dead” might have eyes to see, ears to hear, skin to feel, but they cannot see, hear, feel when God speaks to them. It is the soul that sees, hears, feels, who possesses the senses. All are not purely biological, our souls are what drives us.
3/ We are not just biological creatures answering to the laws of physics, anatomy and physiology, but of the psyche, aka our souls. Physical pain is real, but the source also comes through the soul. Through humility, and prayer, recognizing our nothingness without Him, is when >
