I am usually against cloning, but we really need to clone Fr. John Lankeit, rector of the Saints Simon & Jude Cathedral in Phoenix, Ariz.

  1. What a great..Great watchman for the Children of God.

    Bishop’s who condem priests like this one or who buy the lie that politics and homilies shouldn’t mix, well..God have mercy on their souls. Better for those Bishop’s to be shoveling coal than pretending to be shepherding the Children of God.

    Great clip!

  2. Thanks for “cloning” this sermon Donald. What an outstanding priest Fr. Lankeit is! But, unfortunately, what a rarity, also. I think most of us would appreciate hearing more from him.

  3. As with all battles against Evil, we face more than one Front. I remember seeing an Associated Press photo, a photo op, of VP Joe Biden posing with Pres. Obama during a signing of a Bill furthering Abortion. It was Ash Wednesday, and Joe had fresh ashes covering his forehead ! How’s that for IN YOUR FACE !!??

  4. Sorry. Sometimes the print on Ephesians 5:11 seems more bold, for me, than other times.

  5. I was stationed, for three years, in Germany with the U.S. Air Force. We were the Police unit for the Base. Our barracks was isolated from the rest of the Base and located far out in the German country side. If you did not own a car, it was very difficult to get to the Airbase, where the only Catholic Church was located. I walked for several miles, thru snow, that first winter, to get to a bus. And rode the bus to another location, from which I could walk another 2 or 3 miles, to get to that Church. I went to Confession and could see enough thru the screen, that the Priest was a full Colonel. I told him how hard it was for me to get to Church from our barracks. I told him I might not be back.
    A week later, and I swear what I say is true, we mysteriously began to have Air Force bus service to and from the Air Base. The Lord used little old me to get that done.

  6. Pinky.

    Me too.
    It’s a good wish, yours, and the sobering fact is that the antithesis of life had half of the popular vote…A little more than half.

    Fifty percent of your neighbors see nothing wrong with abortion on demand, nor do they have a problem with making us chip in to fund it.

    What a long long way to go, but thank God that the self proclaimed destroyer of children aka, reproductive health Zar Helliry, didn’t get her ego stroked. Thank God we are not likely to see presidential edicts forcing Religions to change their views on abortion or elese being threatened with “hate taxes.”

    At the very least Pinky, we don’t have that rat biting Lady Liberty at her heels. Not in the near future anyway. Not that rat.

  7. I am reminded of something else in contemplating this priest’s homily which is of course quite excellent. Democrats (liberal progressives really of any stripe) always pride themselves on how rational, logical, scientific and devoted to nature they claim to be while denigrating conservatives and Christians as unscientific and illiterate. But consider this. They are the ones who want to rut in heat, titillating their genitals like mindless baboons and then abdicate their responsibility and evade their accountability for the inevitable result. Then contrary to Nature which they say they love, they want to artificially terminate the pregnancy through unnatural means. Fathom the logic in their actions. They reject the dignity that comes with having been created in the image and likeness of God, substituting materialistic evolution and a brute ape beast as ancestor. Thus they become as non-sentient as the animal from which they say they “evolved.” Therefore, the reality is this: they have respect for neither science nor nature, neither reason nor morality. Their spiritual ancestors were the Israelite apostates who immolated their newly born in sacrifice to Moloch, and God’s response is going to be the same today as it was then, mark my words. God does NOT change. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. He always does the right thing in the right way at the right time. We will have our Sennacherib and Nebuchadnezzar moment, and we will have brought it upon ourselves. If these people say they are apes, then by golly that’s how God will treat them. And the rain will fall on just and unjust alike.

  8. Bishop Fulton Sheen’s show always started and ended with a song, “If everyone would light just one little candle, what a bright world it would be.” It was not by chance that I would meet with the Command Chaplain of that whole Area, my confessor, at that moment in time.

  9. Tim Reed, bless you for making the effort that started the ball err bus rolling. Bless that Col. wherever he may be for responding. If one hasn’t lived it, it’s very hard for someone to understand how important it is to have access to an English speaking priest and the Mass and sacraments. Especailly in a war zone. Military chaplains are the best. Stateside the priests that have been in the military, especially those who were career and then had a late vocation, are not afraid to speak out. They actually use the word “sin” in their homilies. It would be interesting to know which seminary Fr. Lankeit attended. Surely he is receiving graces from the Holy Spirit.

  10. CAM, I have tried for a long time to find our, from the Air Force, who that Colonel was. I have contacted Air Force Home site and can get nothing. I know he must have been the Command Chaplain for USAFE during 1964-1965. I read in one of your pieces that you are a Veteran. Would you or any of your friends know how to accomplish this ?
