Father, Mr. Morris

This is interesting, in a sad way. Former Fr. Jonathan Morris, ex-commentator and now ex-Catholic priest is interviewed by Martha MacCallum

He explains his recent decision to be laicized. He's explanation is that he never intended to become a priest and after 25 years from Seminary to priesthood, he had to take action to actually follow God's real plan for him as he now felt in his own heart and gut Wow.... 

Well I definitely don't know his heart and I do applaud his continued acknowledgement of his faith in the Catholic Church, I can't say I understand. Many of the Saints, including Mother Theresa had experiences that made them doubt their vocations, even experiences of the dark soul. Even those who have been married for quite some time have experienced at one point or another, that maybe they may have married the wrong person or wanted out of their relationship because of some hard-time, financial or otherwise, so I don't know if Mr. Morris will have the fortitude to weather those moments either. 

I believe he is a priest, forever as it says in Hebrews 7:17 

For it is declared: "You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek."

'll keep him in my prayers

A Change to the Our Father.....Why?

Very recently, Pope Francis gave his blessing to the French Church revising their translation  to change from, "and lead us not into temptation" to "don't let me fall into temptation.”

Jimmy Akin from Catholic Answers give his take the media hipe on  this Here.

I first saw the Headlines on the Drudge Report but it was widely reported throughout the media, like  
FoxNews and USA Today to name just a couple. Few outlets couldn't pass up the chance to weigh in. Maybe with a motive of, if the pope can change the Catholic Church on this topic why not others...I'm only speculating.

Few offered no substance or factual reasoning or how it truly affects everyday Catholics, if fact it only caused confusing.

Patrick Madrid on his daily morning show on Relevant Radio offered some keen insight.
