American Life League Weighs In On The Persecution Of Father Guarnizo

Judie Brown, President of American Life League, issued a press release today, stating that "Barbara Johnson Owes Mother and Catholic Church An Apology".  She raises many good points.  My only comment would be more of an addition: Ms. Johnson owes Father Guarnizo an apology, as does the Archdiocese of Washington.

From my friend at Les Femmes, here are some good ones.

An Open Letter from a Catholic in the Archdiocese of Washington


  1. I say a Hail Mary every morning for Fr. Guarnizo and all embattled priests. I remembered him tonight, too, at adoration.

    I was thinking tonight that maybe part of the reason we are so inundated with evils is because we don't pray for protection from them. The pre-conciliar liturgy (Mass, sacraments, Divine Office) and the old Rituale Romanum are full of petitions for blessing and protection from various evils...and for the last almost half-century, those have been all but wiped out. Somewhere, we got the idea that we no longer need them. This is a dumb idea. St. Alphonsus Liguori says there are certain graces God doesn't ordinarily grant us unless we ask for them.

  2. Anita, where can one get a pre-conciliar brevary (preferably online)? I'd be interested in obtaining one. Thanks.

  3. Baronius Press has just come out with an English-Latin Roman Breviary in 3 volumes -- for the low, low price of $350.00! They are already out of stock:


    The old breviary is also online in its entirety. I know a priest who uses this:


  4. P.S. If you use Firefox, the Divinum Officium website doesn't seem to run very well on it. It works better on Explorer.
