Jesus Vs Jesus, OY!

https://soundcloud.com/kathy-appello https://katherineappello.bandcamp.com How many of us have had days or times when things gets so frazzled so confusing, we think, “I’m having an identity crisis”?  Well guess what Jesus has also been having an identity crisis and actually it has been going on since the time of his being on earth, but with the post […]

Problem With the Met Gala

This is not even counting the bondage rosary mask.  Scripture tells us that in the latter days truth will be twisted and mocked and what is evil, unhealthy etc… will be lauded as good.  All you have to do is look around you and know that is true.  This shows that.  Even worse is that […]

Who Would I Rather Stand With?

We are in a world where it’s all about being PC, loved by the world, safe spaces etc…, don’t offend, don’t hurt feelings, accept everything under the sun and every lifestyle no matter what because you don’t want to be judgmental, it’s all about love, God is only about love, right?  Oy, what you all […]

What the Old Guard Is Not Getting

  I love the Latin Mass, the Masses of the various Societies within the Catholic faith, the solemnity of those Masses, the Reverence.  I believe in natural order etc.., would even without religion just by common sense.  Yet the Bishops chose to ignore the youth, the Catholic youth, invited Atheists and Muslims to discuss the […]

Why The RCC is Losing Flock?

https://www.churchmilitant.com/news/article/us-bishop-conference-lobbies-congress-to-fund-agency-funding-planned-parent When I read this article I thought about the Pro-Life March and I got a headache, rather a ouch in my head because between this and Pope Francis, showed inconsistency.  It showed a total lack of consistency, of moral backbone.  You can’t have Pro-life marches, yearly Pro-life prayer vigils and all that, then fund […]

Know What You’re Walking Away From

Often Catholics, even yours truly will get caught up in the trap of not really knowing about the faith, now knowing the core truths of it, the biblical basis for these truths, the exegesis, the deductive and inductive reasoning of the Church Fathers in regards to the faith and will fall into the trap of […]

Daily Bread

Yesterday I went to Mass at St. Peter’s on Barclay Street, quite a historic church, https://spcolr.org/st-peters-church-history.  I had gone a few times before and my mom had gone often.  It was always full.  Why was it always full.  Today I realized why.  First off, the church itself has great energy, it’s not garish, but is […]

All Souls Day Reflection

I came a cross this article regarding All Souls Day by Fr. Thomas Rosica CSB and thought I would share it with you. http://saltandlighttv.org/blogfeed/getpost.php?id=1541 There are those who fear death, but death is simply transformation from being a physical being to a spiritual being in full splendor and when you are in Christ, living your […]

Disrespect of Tradition, Scary Here

Disdain for Tradition, Scary I spoke in a previous blog about a path, about forging a path, and while a path forward does require some adaptation and some transformation so as to not be stagnant, what have we gained from a total disdain of all things traditional, of Family, God, Faith and Country?   I understand […]

It’s About God, and Community

I spoke about the disconnect between my cultural heritage as an Italian-American Catholic and my theological leaning that are more Conservative Anglican.  That will always be a conflict present in my life to some extent, won’t it?   Today I realized something.  It doesn’t have to, not if I focus on the core, on the […]
