What it Means to Be a Person

"Because God made you [a person], there is automatically a relationship [between God and you]. And, it's God who formed the relationship." minute 52:45

God made you in and for an unique, exclusive and unrepeatable relationship with Him, that only you can fill, and which alone can fill you.

Person means relationship, God in relationship with you. Covenant.

"Espanglés" no "Spanglish"

"Espanglés" es como se denominaría la corrupción del idioma español, introducióndele palabras estranjeras del inglés. La palabra "Spanglish" misma es un ejemplo del espanglés, una distorción del idioma hispano. ¡Barbarismo! ¡Rechacemos el imperialismo inglés!

Enriquescamos nuestro idioma, ¡no lo banalicemos!

Mass-Media Corruption

The newspaper and the cinema have ruined the human imagination. But now they also want to convey religiosity through them. Humanity is sick "unto death" and does not know its Doctor, although it has set up His sign on its churches.

La prensa y el cine han arruinado la imaginación del hombre. Pero ahora también quieren transmitir lo religioso a través de ellos. La humanidad está enferma "hasta la muerte" y no conoce a su Médico, aunque ha establecido Su señal en sus iglesias.

Zeitung und Film haben die Phantasie des Menschen ruiniert. Jetzt aber will man durch sie auch noch das Religiöse vermitteln. Die Menschheit ist krank "bis zum Tode" und kennt ihren Arzt nicht, obgleich sie sein Zeichen auf ihren Kirchen aufgerichtet hat.

Liturgical Intolerance

A proper understanding of the Roman Ritual needs contact with the ancient form of the ritual and cannot be opposed to it.

Unreasonably divisive, countless bishops continue to ignore, and even persist in attempting to exclude, the ancient form of the Roman Liturgy.

Cardinal Ratzinger criticized that stance on many occasions, even before his motu proprio Summorum pontificum as Pope Benedict XVI.

"For fostering a true consciousness in liturgical matters, it is...important that the proscription against the form of liturgy in valid use up to 1970 should be lifted. Anyone who nowadays advocates the continuing existence of this liturgy or takes part in it is treated like a leper; all tolerance ends here. There has never been anything like this in history; in doing this we are despising and proscribing the Church's whole past. How can one trust her present if things are that way? I must say, quite openly, that I don't understand why so many of my episcopal brethren have to a great extent submitted to this rule of intolerance, which for no apparent reason is opposed to making the necessary inner reconciliation within the Church."

Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, God and the World: Believing and Living in Our Time, San Francisco: Ignatius, 2000, 416.
