For the past several months, a name has kept popping up in various Catholic news media: Charlie Johnston. Johnston alleges to receive private revelations. According to a biography that appears at the end of his articles on his web site The Next Right Step, Johnston:

How Powerful is Our Lady Undoer of Knots?

Our Lady Undoer of Knots
When the devil tells an exorcist:  “It is the novena to 'she who unties the knots' that destroyed my plans…,” it is a powerful endorsement.   
In the booklet, Our Lady Untier of Knots: Story of a Marian Devotion, the testimony of Capuchin Father Capriano deMeo during an exorcism in Torre LeNocelle Avellino, Italy, revealed that a possessed woman was reacting with loud screams and complaints of defeat.

Obama's Disrespectful Reception for Pope Francis

I prayed a rosary today for Pope Francis's visit to the United States. I trust that he can hold his own, or rather, God can hold him in the palm of his hand without my help.  But, I am troubled by the reception President Obama has prepared for him at the White House on September 23.

Avoid the Spin During Pope’s Visit

Bishop Paprocki, Al Kresta and Teresa Tomeo weigh in.
         Beware: the spin-doctors will be out in force during Pope Francis’s visit to the United States. They can’t seem to help themselves whether through wishful thinking or lack of a Catholic perspective.
Pope Francis has said nothing contrary to two thousand years of Catholic teaching, but his personal engagement with the media and his habit of leading with mercy,  often leads the secular media to misinterpret his statements. If all of what they claimed he said were true, he’d be a heretic.

911, A Survivor's Story by Michael Fineo

          Why me?  It is the very question that haunted me after I escaped from Tower 1 of the World Trade Center in New York City  on September 11, 2001.

Father Calloway: Our Lady of Fatima’s Remedy for Our Times

“I expect to be imprisoned during my priesthood.”  I hear it over and over these days from priests and seminarians.  No doubt you have too.
The state-driven persecution has arrived, fueled by the Supreme Court’s annihilation of civilization’s primary institution of marriage.  Their 5-4 decision on June 26, legalizing same-sex "marriages" nullified the role of procreation and the basic emotional needs of children in marriage.

Ashley Madison, the Devil, and You

Ashley Madison, the company with the tagline: “Life is short. Have an affair,” has been fertile ground for the devil.  He now reaches beyond those that have fallen hard, seeking to also pull in the gleeful spectators.  For by enjoying the specter of moral destruction, Satan pits people against the will of God who desires salvation not downfall.

12 Things to Know about Pro-abortion Activists

How could they?  Looking at the undercover videos exposing the horrifying reality of all that comes with abortion, it’s a burning question.  How  could human beings callously kill and cut up babies; some with hearts still beating?  Our beliefs may be polar opposites, but our prayers can be fueled with compassion if we understand why they sit in the enemy camp.

Is it Wrong to Lie to Planned Parenthood?

Some prolife Catholics claim the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) lead investigator David Daleiden was wrong to lie to make undercover videos.  The latest video reveals that not only are babies cut up for sale, but also tissue is sometimes harvested while the heart is still beating.

Did Jesus Miss Opportunities?

Listening to the Gospel this morning at Mass—because Catholics are all about the Bible and Church authority—(1Timothy 3:15)—I was struck by Jesus’ missed opportunity.

Letter to Senators Loyal to Planned Parenthood

Dear U.S. Senators, 
If you support Planned Parenthood, then you have immersed yourself in lies to support the #1 baby killer in this country—330,000 babies on average killed annually.  Honesty is not an option for you because even liberal voters might flinch if you admitted the truth: I don’t care that babies are killed in the womb so why should I care if they are cut up and sold?
