It's official. The Catholic Knight is retired.  I'm hanging up the helmet and passing the torch. There will be no more articles, no more commentaries, no more calls to action. THIS BLOG IS CLOSED. I've spent a very long time thinking about this, I believe the time has come, and is a bit overdue.  I want to thank my readers for everything, but most especially for your encouragement and your willingness to go out there and fight the good fight. So, that being the case, I've spend the last several weeks looking for bloggers who are fairly active, and best represent something akin to the way I think and what I believe.  I recommend the following blogs for my readers to bookmark and check on regularly. Pick one as your favourite, or pick them all. They are all great..... In His Majesty's Service, THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT

Cardinal Burke On Hebrew Catholics


The first question concerns the continuing election of Jewish people who are baptized and enter the Catholic Church.


The second question concerns the collective nature of the election of Jewish people within the Catholic Church.


The third question concerns the legitimacy of celebrating various traditions of our Jewish heritage, in the light of Christ, within the Church.


The fourth question concerns the way in which we are to approach, interpret, and understand the historical documents of Sacred Tradition. Statements by Pope Eugenius IV and Pope Benedict XIV are contrasted.

Another aspect of this question concerns the way in which we interpret the relation between the shadow in the Old Covenant and the reality in the New Covenant.


The fifth question concerns the life of Hebrew Catholics in the Church today and Archbishop Burke's counsel.


The Association of Hebrew Catholics is an organization serving the unique needs of Jewish converts to the Catholic Church.
