What to do About Fr. Richard Rohr?

 

Father Richard Rohr, OFM (Wikicommons)

Anonymous asks: “I have a Protestant friend who is very interested in the writings/teachings of Fr. Richard Rohr. I’m afraid my friend may be getting wrong ideas about our Church. I don’t know why I have a strange feeling about this Priest, when I really know next to nothing about what he teaches. Do you know if his writings are orthodox and loyal to the Magesterium? Am I completely off-base, or should my friend be warned about Fr. Rohr?”

No greater gift

April 29

St. Catherine of Siena (1347-1380)

"Eternal Trinity, Godhead, You could give me no greater gift than the gift of Yourself. For you are a fire ever burning and never consumed, which itself consumes all the selfish love that fills my being. Yes, You are a fire that takes away coldness, illuminates the mind with its light, and causes me to know Your truth. You are beauty and wisdom itself. "

-Adapted from a prayer of St. Catherine of Siena

 

Today's Reflection

Today, I will take a few moments to meditate on this prayer of St. Catherine and see what the Lord speaks to me through it.

Re-inventing the Enneagram…with Christian Roots?

The enneagram is enjoying a new popularity these days, mostly driven by a new generation of Catholics who are seeking a connection with the transcendent in ways other than those proposed by mainstream religions. The fact that the Enneagram has occultic roots has kept many people away from the use of this device, but others are bypassing this rather significant roadblock by inventing a whole new Christian history of its roots. But how well does this new history stand up to serious scrutiny?

Divine Mercy Counterfeit: The Grace Mercy Order

We have had numerous inquiries about a religious order based in Brazil known as the Grace Mercy Order which is promulgating alleged messages from Jesus, Mary, and St. Joseph. Even though this order incorporates the Divine Mercy Chaplet into its activities, it is not a Catholic organization and does not reflect a Christian worldview.
