Rite of Absolution over the Catafalque
post

“It is therefore a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead, that they may be loosed from sins.” (2 Maccabees 12:46) During the month of November, the Church is particularly mindful of her children who are suffering in purgatory. In addition to the Requiem Mass, the Sacred Liturgy contains a treasury of intercessory prayers and rites which are offered and performed to benefit the members of the Church Suffering. One such ceremony is the Absolution, which is performed … Read More

Marriage v Virginity
post

Marriage a gift from God – The Church’s Understanding through Scripture. We have seen how Christ dispensed with the concession permitting divorce which was given by Moses.  We also know that Moses gave this concession on account of the hardness of men’s hearts.  Does this mean that with the arrival of Christ men became softer of heart?

Marriage in Matthew, Mark & Genesis
post

Christ nullified the concession of Moses. So far, we have seen that a false notion of marriage has become prevalent throughout western society even amongst Catholics. We have seen in the Gospels how Jesus, in both Matthew 5:31-32 and in Luke 16:18, nullified the concession, given to the people by Moses, which permitted divorce. The Church confirmed this interpretation at both the council of Florence and the Council of Trent therefore any confusion as regards the Church’s position on marriage … Read More

Marriage in Sacred Scripture
post

First published in ‘The Catholic Voice’, Ireland in December 2013 The Notion of Marriage is Undermined In the first article I noted that western civilisation has collapsed due in no small part to the ongoing collapse of marriage.  The traditional understanding of marriage has been seriously undermined in our society to such an extent that most people in western society, including many if not most, Catholics, now see marriage as a romantic sexual relationship where two people, regardless of sex, … Read More

Marriage Articles

I began writing articles on Marriage for the fortnightly ‘Catholic Voice’ newspaper in Ireland in December 2013. At some stage I hope to incorporate most of those articles into a book. For now, I will begin to re-publish those articles here on The Lumen Fidei Institute website. They are a great source for those who seek to learn about Catholic Teaching on Marriage and Family life. What follows is the first article I had published. ARTICLE 1 First Published in … Read More
