Archbishop Fulton Sheen's Reflection on Calvary

Brothers, the following is a reflection by Archbishop Fulton Sheen on the Mass and the importance of our relationship to it, theologically.  The Archbishop uses very expressive language to expose a truth which we should all come to accept.  Namely, the action of the Last Supper is ratified not in the breaking of the bread alone, but rather in the sacrifice of Christ Jesus on Calvary, together in a selfsame sacrifice.  It is the re-presentation of that same sacrifice over and over, day after…

The Orans Position

There has been a growing posture in the American Church recently of people holding their hands in the fashion of the priest during the Our Father.  This posture is called the orans position.  This practice, while at first blush seems to be pretty innocuous actually is not in keeping with either traditional or current liturgical law.  By that I mean that we as Catholics have roles which we are to fulfill with regard to our lives within the Catholic Church and in this instance,…
