  • The Eight Stages of the Rise and Fall of Civilizations
    Post by Msgr. Charles Pope , 10/12/2016

    “Cultures and civilizations go through cycles. Over time, many civilizations and cultures have risen and then fallen. We who live in painful times like these do well to recall these truths. Cultures and civilizations come and go; only the Church (though often in need of reform) and true biblical culture remain. An old song says, "Only what you do for Christ will last." Yes, all else passes; the Church is like an ark in the passing waters of this world and in the floodwaters of times like these. ... ”

    Post by Msgr. Charles Pope , 10/6/2016

    “The Collect (Opening Prayer) for this week's Masses (27th Week of the Year), though directed to God, teaches us that our prayer is not always about things with which we are comfortable.

  • Never Give Up: St. Augustine?s Stirring Call to Pastors
    Post by Msgr. Charles Pope, 10/2/2016

    “Today I would like to present excerpts from a stirring sermon that St. Augustine delivered to the priests and people of Hippo. In times like these we must all be reminded of the need to preach the Word of God even if the recipients of that word revile us, labeling our very proclamation of love “hate speech.” This is not new; St. Augustine calls us to be resolute and to preach the Word of God in season and out of season. This encouraging message is particularly appropriate for clergy and for all might grow discouraged. Augustine’s words are shown in bold print, while my commentary is in plain text. ... ”

  • A Biblical Meditation on the Difficulties of Old Age
    Post by Msgr. Charles Pope, 9/26/2016

    “Today I would like to discuss the Gospel from last Saturday morning’s daily Mass (25th Week of the Year). For indeed one of the more beautiful passages in the Old Testament is the 12th Chapter of Ecclesiastes. It is a melancholy but soulful meditation on old age. Its poetic imagery is masterful as it draws from the increasingly difficult effects of old age such as hearing loss, fading eyesight, difficulty walking, digestive issues, and even gray hair. ... ”

  • Job and Suffering
    Post by Msgr. Charles Pope , 9/26/2016

    “We are beginning to read from the Book of Job in daily Mass. One of its core issues is the problem of suffering and why God allows it. If God is omnipotent and omniscient then how can He tolerate evil, injustice, and suffering of the innocent?
