First Synod reports focus on abuse and sexuality | CatholicHerald.co.uk
The theme of the synod is “young people, the faith and vocational discernment,” but the working group English-A, which includes bishops from the United States, Australia, Ireland and England, said, “the context for vocational discernment has changed utterly. Our group suggests that the issue of child sexual abuse in the church cannot be skimmed over tangentially in a few short sentences.”
“The shattered trust, the trauma and lifelong suffering of survivors; the catastrophic failures in case management; the continued silence and denial by some of these awful crimes and sins – these issues cry out to be named openly by the synod,” the group said.

A Harmful Dependence for the Mind of the Youth by Fr. Philippe Bourrat On The Angelus Online
Screens & digital devices and the call to ‘return to order’
This transformation of man into an informed human reposes upon a promethean faith without limit in the technological capacity to surpass the physical and temporal limits of his nature: his intelligence and the acquisition of his knowledge, the brevity and fragility of his life could see its constraints diminished or suppressed. That which the theatres formerly envisioned in the scenarios of science fiction, the digital giants (Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft, without forgetting certain Chinese giants), already realize. More than a race of obvious financial issues, this revolution would like to reform man integrally, by making a creature of science and technology. Ultimately, man becomes god, an immortal and omniscient god.
Why Apple Is Shaking in Its Boots –By John Horvat II On Return to Order
The Fear of Moral Values
Apple knows something that most people don’t know. There are a lot of Americans that might take offense by the wrong programming. We are not talking about activists. Instead, we are referring to that broad swath of Americans who still cling, however tenuously, to Christian morals, family and property.
Vatican II – and Pope Franics – Prophetic reflection by the late Dietrich Von Hildebrand (Enemies Within The Church )
The Great Theologian And Author Dietrich Von Hildebrand – On the hierarchy coming to power in the Church
“The enemies who were hidden in the Trojan Horse have stepped out of their encampment and the active work of destruction is in high gear… The purpose of this book is… to give a short, clear presentation of the principal errors which are being presented today as a breakthrough of the ‘modern’ man who has ‘come of age,’ whom one can supposedly no longer expect to believe the teaching of the Church in the form it has taken up to now…. Secondly, we shall especially try to unmask those hidden, subtle errors … under beautiful, apparently noble titles, and whose danger is often overlooked even by believing Catholics.”

Archive Review Of The Prof Dietrich Von Hildebrand Book The Devastated Vineyard By Michael Davies On Angelus
In this Preface he sets out the purpose of his book in very clear terms:
“The purpose of this book is, first of all, to give a short, clear presentation of the principal errors which are being presented today as a breakthrough to the “modern” man who has “come of age,” whom one can supposedly no longer expect to believe the teaching of the Church in the form it has taken up to now . . . Secondly, we shall especially try to unmask those hidden, subtle errors which are usually introduced under beautiful, apparently noble titles, and whose danger is often overlooked even by believing Catholics.”

Propers For The TLM For The Feast Of The Assumption
The Lord hath blessed thee by His power, because by thee He hath brought our enemies to nought. Blessed art thou, O daughter, by the Lord the most high God, above all women upon the earth. Blessed be the Lord who made heaven and earth, who hath directed thee to the cutting off the head of the prince of our enemies. Because He hath so magnified thy name this day that thy praise shall not depart out of the mouth of men who shall be mindful of the power of the Lord, for ever: for that thou hast not spared thy life, by reason of the distress and tribulation of thy people; but hast prevented our ruin in the presence of our God. Thou art the glory of Jerusalem, thou art the joy of Israel, thou art the honor of our people
Ps. 44: 11-12, 14 Hearken, O daughter, and see, and incline thine ear: and the King shall greatly desire thy beauty. All beautiful is the King’s daughter as she comes in, robed in cloth of gold.
Saint Luke 1:41-50
At that time: Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost. And she cried out with a loud voice and said: Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And whence is this to me that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For behold as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy. And blessed art thou that hast believed, because those things shall be accomplished that were spoken to thee by the Lord. And Mary said: My soul doth magnify the Lord. And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior. Because He hath regarded the humility of His handmaid: for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. Because He that is mighty hath done great things to me: and holy is His name. And His mercy is from generations to generations to them that fear Him.

Morris-Jumel Mansion By Tom McDonald, NYC Transit Retiree
The Morris-Jumel Mansion
If you happen to find yourself in the Washington Heights Section of Upper Manhattan, you may come upon a remarkable edifice, the oldest house in Manhattan, in fact.
The Morris-Jumel Mansion (MJM) was built by British Colonel Roger Morris in 1765. General George Washington used the mansion as his headquarters during the Battle of Harlem Heights in the fall of 1776; President Washington returned to MJM on July 10, 1790 to dine with Vice President John Adams, Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson, Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton, and Secretary of War Henry Knox.
Stephen Jumel, a prominent French wine merchant from Haiti purchased the house in 1810. When Jumel died in 1832, he left his fortune to his wife, Eliza, who soon married again, to former Vice President Aaron Burr. Jumel divorced Burr after three years, though, and died in the mansion in 1865. The house passed through a few hands until 1894, when General Ferdinand P. Earle purchased it. He sold it in 1903 to the city of New York in order to preserve the historical significance of the building. In 1904, the Washington’s Headquarters Association, formed by four chapters of the Daughters of the American Revolution, took on the task of operating the mansion as a museum.
Located at the head of the Sylvan Terrace, which is the home of a wonderful string of old row-houses, the Morris-Jumel stands tall on a hill. The courtyard that surrounds the structure is open to all. Upon entering the mansion, one is struck by how loud the ancient wooden floors creak on each step you take, a sensation both thrilling and unsettling. The parlors on the first floor, the so-called “sleeping chambers” on the second floor and the basement kitchen all are well preserved and inspiring. Most of all, the idea of actually being in a house where the first three U.S. Presidents had been, along with the two men involved in the most famous duel in history, Hamilton and Burr, was rather intoxicating. It’s also reason enough for anyone who is a New Yorker or an American to head uptown for a look at MJM, which became a National Landmark in 1962. There is also a wonderful gift shop in the mansion which sells items pertaining to the site as well as the colonial times it was born into.
If you take the C train to 163 St and exit from the south-east staircase, you’ll be just a short walk from the Morris-Jumel Mansion, beyond a stone stairwell on St. Nicholas Avenue. The M2, M3, and M18 buses on Madison Avenue (to 160th Street) and the Third Avenue M101 bus (to 161st Street) also stop within a few blocks of the Mansion.
