Baptism of Desire and Feeneyism / Re: The Catechumen
« Last post by Cantarella on Today at 04:28:17 PM »
In fact, I am comfortable with the position of Mr. Karam in his "Reply to a Liberal," which allowed for a salvific BOD where the individual has an explicit desire for baptism and to enter the Church. 
Mr. Karam also mentioned four other requirements along with the explicit desire for Baptism: that the individual possesses the Catholic Faith (without which it is impossible to please God); that he must have perfect charity; as well as an explicit will to join the Catholic Church (for even Baptisms of Protestants and Orthodox do not suffice for salvation if the person - beyond the age of reason - dies outside the Church); and finally that he must be dying and this last point is important, for when has the Church granted Baptisms certificates of Desire?. If the person is not dying, then the obligation to receive the water Baptism remains.

The majority of Austrians were very enthused about the  Anschluss, and why not, it was their brothers in blood, history, language, and culture. They were unjustly separated by and foreign powers and the influence of aliens.

General Discussion / Re: Sex scandals and prostitution

If I be correct, I do recall that Bishop Moreno, former  dioceses Bishop of Tucson, is no longer, for he was caught managing a prostitution ring.  When victims came, the dioceses claimed bankruptcy.  So rotten!!

Then when Glendale, AZ hosted the Super Bowl, on PHX News at 5pm did a news spot at a famous brothel, and requested for the month prior and the month after the Game, prostitution would be no crime!  If anything could sicken me, that did!  We may imagine those involved be over 18, but how much you wish to bet there were children as well?!
Songbird, it doesn't take much to check what you recall. I have never heard of this bishop but I searched and came up with this from NYTimes:

Resignation of Bishop in Troubled Tucson Diocese Is Accepted

By LAURIE GOODSTEIN MARCH 8, 2003

Pope John Paul II yesterday accepted the resignation of the ailing Bishop Manuel D. Moreno of Tucson, who presided over a diocese that is now on the verge of bankruptcy because of large financial settlements with victims of sexually abusive priests.
.
In a noon Mass at St. Augustine Cathedral in Tucson, Bishop Moreno told congregants yesterday that he had prostate cancer and was in the early stages of Parkinson's disease. He is retiring after 21 years in Tucson at age 72, three years before bishops usually tender their resignations.
.
Bishop Moreno's replacement is Bishop Gerald F. Kicanas, who has been helping to guide the diocese since October 2001, when he was appointed as the bishop's coadjutor, or intended successor, because of Bishop Moreno's declining health.
.
Last year Bishop Moreno suspended 19 priests accused of abuse, said Fred Allison, the bishop's spokesman. Before that, the diocese had 83 active priests and 31 others listed on its rosters as retired, sick or absent.
.
''I would be remiss if I didn't say my days here have also had turmoil and difficulty, pain and remorse,'' Bishop Moreno said at yesterday's Mass. ''To those who my actions or inactions have caused pain, I renew my contrition.''

Men and women are different and we tend to have different approaches to debate.  It is more important for women to be gentle and avoid being argumentative.

Very few people have treated me badly because of my ancestry, far too few to make generalizations about men or trads or anything else.

And, for the record, I am not Jewish.  I am Catholic.  I was born into a Jewish family, but, by the grace of God, I made my way into the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church.

This will be my last post to you on this thread, since I don't want to make the thread all about me, as you are doing. And you don't understand what I keep trying to explain to you. 

I have to get back to working on Thanksgiving dinner. 

I wish you a happy Thanksgiving.

You seem to believe that men get a free pass to behave any way they like, but women have always be "nice."

I've seen how men have sometimes treated you here, Jayne. They accuse you of being insincere simply because you are Jewish. Some seem to believe that Jews are not quite human. Which is reprehensible. But that's trad men for you. Or at least some of them.

You misunderstand.  You expressed your wish to be more humble so I am reminding you of it.  I do not recall seeing anyone else expressing such a wish so I can't very well remind them.

I do not see a lack of humility in my posts to which you seem to be referring. I was stating what I perceive to be the truth.

Then you have not read the posts by the men on this thread. It would be a good idea to read the posts of those with whom I am responding to, before passing judgement.

General Discussion / Re: How many of you know who the Habsburgs were?
« Last post by LeDeg on Today at 01:01:14 PM »
I am acutely aware of the Habsburgs and greatly admire much of what they accomplished. I remember the sense of pride I had as someone of Germanic descent when I walked through the Hofburg's treasury in Vienna with my family. 


I picked my up a great book on Franz Joseph while there, amongst other books about the royal lineage, and it has been wonderful to read. It is quite big in size and was quite expensive, but worth it.


I wonder how many are educated about the Wittelsbach family, who played a major role in the history of Europe.

I was reminding you of your own aspirations for your own behaviour.  I was not aware of anyone else saying anything like that.
