|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.

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.

“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 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.

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.

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.

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?
