Pentecost VI

July 8, 2007 – Pentecost VI – St. Elizabeth, Queen of Portugal, W

Dr. Thomas Droleskey Speaks
Beginning tomorrow evening in Helfta Hall, Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey, the editor-publisher of www.ChristorChaos.com, will present a comprehensive review of the Catholic Faith, “Living in the Shadow of the Cross,” beginning at 7:00 PM and running until 9:00 PM. The program is being presented to help Catholics to see themselves and the world more clearly through the eyes of the true Faith. Those who attend do not have to be parishioners of Saint Gertrude the Great Church. Indeed Catholics across the ecclesiastical divide are very welcome to attend. Free will offerings will be asked from those who attend these lectures.
This week’s topics are:
Monday – July 9th: “The Nature of Truth as Examined by Reason and Attacked by Conciliarism.”
Tuesday – July 10th: “The Nature of Truth as Understood by Divine Revelation.” (This lecture includes a discussion of the Nature of God and what constitutes His Divine Revelation through the Catholic Church, leading up to a treatment of Special Creation and the Fall.)
Wednesday – July 11th: “The Aftermath of the Fall.” (A review of the effects of Original Sin and Actual Sins on the souls of men and their societies; the Flood, the call of Abraham, the bondage of the Hebrew people in Egypt, the first Passover and the Mosaic Covenant).
Thursday – July 12th: “This is the Love of God: That You Keep His Commandments.” The first of eleven specific lectures on the Ten Commandments, given by God to Moses on Mount Sinai but entrusted to and explicated infallibly by the Catholic Church. This night’s lecture will deal with the First Commandment and its precepts and prohibitions.

Dr. Droleskey and his family are traveling missionaries of Christ the King, itinerant evangelists, entirely dependent upon your charity. Please check on Christ or Chaos – Donations in order to make a donation, or you may help them through St. Gertrude the Great. Offerings through the church are tax deductible.
