Marriage, Dark Nights and more on USC!

A lot has been going on in my life this past month, but somehow I have still managed to pull together some pretty solid articles on topics as diverse as chant, political authority, marriage, scientific history and more! Please take a moment to peruse these new articles on the Unam Sanctam Catholicam website and forward them on to your friends. I especially recommend the one on the ends of marriage for your liberal Catholic acquaintances who can't seem to understand why homosexual so-called "marriage" can never be tolerated as a true matrimonial union.

Remember, for updates on new posts from USC, please follow this blog or consider following us on Facebook. Here are the new articles from the past couple of weeks:

New Church History RCIA Lesson Plan: Lesson plan on Church History 33-1054 AD now available, along with news on how it is now easier to print or download USC lesson plans from the site.

Catholic Cleric-Scientists: Overview of some of the great Catholic men of science and the contributions that the Church has made to scientific progress; it is amazing how many entire scientific disciplines were founded by priests!

Unofficial Chant Books: Very brief summary of the content and uses of some of the unofficial chant books used by the Roman choir.

Divine Origin of Political Authority: Despite the fact that our political authorities are often immoral and usually inept, political authority itself comes from God and is necessarily inferred from the social nature of man.

Roman Rota on the Ends of Marriage: Given the constant barrage of attacks against traditional marriage these days, let us refresh ourselves on the Church's teaching of the primary and secondary ends of marriage and their relation to one another.

Dark Nights True, False and Fashionable: Just because you are experiencing some momentary dryness does not mean you are going through a dark night. Let's revisit what a dark night it exactly, shall we?

Did you hear Blessed John-Paul II is now going to be declared a saint? Now it can no longer be said "should we listen to the last Pope to be declared a saint in..." regarding Pope St. Pius X. Instead it's basically going to be the teachings and actions of Pope St. Pius X versus the teachings and actions of Pope St. John-Paul II.

As if the secular world isn't laughing enough at us already, the saint factory is marching on and making it all seem like a big joke. Forgive me if my joy is cool.

Dear John I have pray a perpetual novena to Pope Saint Pius X for he is my hero but I have no objection to those who will now pray novenas to Pope Saint John Paul II for different Christian Catholics are attracted to different Pope Saints which is only to be expected within Catholicism; and, of course the world is laughing at us - we are their enemy.

When the world stops mocking and trying to destroy us is the time to take the world seriously.

I hate the world and I mock it routinely; try it, it's fun.

Wordly people and their world are normally not brave enough to laugh at their enemies, until their enemies makes fools out of themselves.
