Exposing the Heresies of the Catholic Church: The Mass

The writer of Hebrews is inescapably clear about the singular nature of Christ’s sacrifice.

For Christ did not enter a holy place made with hands, a mere copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us; nor was it that He would offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the holy place year by year with blood that is not his own.

Self-Hatred Will Not Change Ireland’s Past but it Could Alter Emigrants’ Futures

It is tempting to reduce the Irish emigrant’s experience to a single type, or to at least come up with several categories which the emigrant could fall into: the melancholy men who miss mammy, pints in the local and the county final; the peripatetic successful types who “wouldn’t have stayed in Ireland anyway”; or the steady middle-class professionals who go away to progress their careers before moving home to have children. 1,204 more words
