The grave evil of pornography.

One of the most evil and heinous crimes ever committed in Ireland.A few issues back I alluded to some of the details that were in the media concerning the trial for murder of two teenage boys of a fourteen year old girl, Ana Kriégel. The case was still before the courts at the time so I was constrained in what I could say concerning it. Since then the jury has reached its verdict, finding both boys guilty of her murder … Read More

The Persecution of Cardinal Pell?

Christian persecution takes many forms. Sometimes it is a knife on a Libyan beach, taking the head of a believer who refuses to repudiate Christ even when threatened with death. Often it is done under the guise of ‘justice’, where those Muslim countries that operate Sharia law allow non-Muslims to be treated as second-class citizens. Increasingly in the West it wears the mask of ‘tolerance’, where those who refuse to comply with secular liberal values are treated as haters and … Read More

Abortion supporters are the extremists.

It is the baby-butchers, not we who oppose them, who are extremistsOn May 25 this year, the anniversary of the Dismal Referendum in which the increasingly totalitarian population voted for baby-butchering, was marked by a Mass of reparation in the recently-restored parish church of the Sacred Heart in Limerick. During recent speculation about whether the arch-Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg might be chosen by the ruling Conservative Party in Britain as its new leader when the most incompetent Prime Minister in our … Read More

Parenting – time and presence of parents for their children

The challenges facing the modern family.In the system of law, rights and obligations have their proper place. In the social context, however, a third category that plays an important role is responsibility. Responsible behaviour, and a responsible way of life can be best acquired in a family. In the communist system, families were the main places of resistance against an oppressing ideology. Is this still possible in the present crisis of society? The family has become the Achilles’ heel of … Read More

The Catholic Church is Indefectible

That the Catholic Church is indefectible is an infallible teaching of the ordinary and universal magisterium. In these times of great confusion, what Sister Lucia of Fatima called the times of diabolical disorientation, it is important for ordinary Catholics to know exactly what is meant by indefectibility. Sister Lucia, in a letter to her friend Dona Maria Teresa da Cunha, wrote, “People must recite the Rosary every day. Our Lady repeated this in all her apparitions, as if to arm … Read More

Christus Vincit, Christus Regnat, Christus Imperat.

The Triumph of the Risen Christ.The moving of the day celebrating the solemnity of Corpus Christi from Thursday to Sunday brought about changes, perhaps unforeseen. This applies particularly to the procession historically associated with Corpus Christi. In the past every school child was familiar with this great feast which meant not alone a free day, but very different things were happening involving the entire town or village. The Catholic Church is renowned for processions. There is a long history attached … Read More

Divorce Referendum – Children – and the Irish Bishops.

Where are the saints and scholars?First abortion, now family-smashing. Given that more than four-fifths of the Irish voters have demanded a further amendment to the Constitution to make divorce even easier, it is self-evident that the Church has had far too little influence on the debate. Where are the saints and scholars? In the Irish Times’ front-page story on the result of the divorce referendum, not a single Bishop was quoted as having said anything about the result of the … Read More

The Cervical Cancer Scandal and a Wicked Omission

The real cause of the scandal.The cervical cancer scandal has garnered a great deal of media attention. The scandal, in summary, is as follows. The Irish health service offers women a free screening service, generally called a smear test, to check for pre-cancerous cells. In a number of cases the labs doing the screening recorded a false negative result. Some of these women went on to develop cervical cancer subsequent to this; some have died, others have a terminal diagnosis. … Read More

The Farage Phenomenon

If the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall go forth to battle? (1 Corinthians 14:8) No one could accuse Nigel Farage, the founder of Britain’s Brexit Party, of giving an uncertain sound. In just six weeks, his new party went from nothing to outright victory in the elections for the toothless European “Parliament”. It is possible that no party anywhere in the world, ever, has ever gone from a standing start to victory in a national poll in just … Read More

The New Relationships and Sexuality Education (RSE) Curriculum

The Provision of Objective Sexuality Education Bill – 2018: Proposes to remove the ability of schools, parents, Boards of Management and the Minister of Education to uphold the ethos of a school when it comes to RSE. Eradication of ethos:The Oireachtas Education Committee took submissions and published a report in January 2019, calling for the removal of ethos as a barrier to RSE and to include more education on LGBT relationships, LGBT specific sexual health issues, gender identity and the … Read More

The Corruption of Catholics

“Because that, when they knew God, they have not glorified him as God, or given thanks; but became vain in their thoughts, and their foolish heart was darkened. For professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. And they changed the glory of the incorruptible God into the likeness of the image of a corruptible man, and of birds, and of four-footed beasts, and of creeping things. Wherefore God gave them up to the desires of their heart, unto uncleanness, … Read More

The Inconvenient Truth Of RSE

As a wife and mother of 2 young boys, a secondary school teacher on career break, a stay-at-home mum at present and recently, a very concerned parent when it comes to my children’s education, I started a journey all parents should go on right now in Ireland. My child’s Junior Infants’ lesson in my local Catholic primary school, on a paedophile childminder, was the start of a series of questions that have opened my eyes and a Pandora’s box. Do … Read More

Chartres Cathedral is dedicated to Our Lady – Notre Dame – the Virgin Mother of God. … Read More

Pentecost – The Birthday of the Catholic Church

WHITSUNTIDENo doubt there are some Catholics who remember the beautiful season known as Whitsuntide. This began with Pentecost, also known as Whit Sunday, followed by Whit Monday and Whit Tuesday. Certain beliefs and practices associated with this time, though not necessarily spiritual, had nonetheless the benefit of focussing attention on the significance of the entire season of Pentecost. This liturgical season is preceded in importance only by Easter and Christmas. Before the reform in the liturgical calendar, every Sunday was named as a Sunday after Pentecost – the time we … Read More

The Systematic Scandalising of Children

The Corruption of Children“But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of scandals. For it must needs be that scandals come: but nevertheless woe to that man by whom the scandal cometh. (Matthew 18:6-7) In my last article, I mentioned that a lesbian … Read More

The United Nations is the Enemy of Humanity

UN pushing anti-Catholic agendaIt is time to bring the United Nations to an end. This corrupt and evil bureaucracy has outlived what little usefulness it once had. It costs taxpayers in every member-State a large fortune in direct subsidies each year, and a still larger fortune in the indirect costs of paying for “climate change” and other non-existent pseudo-emergencies. The true raison d’etre of the UN is not to serve those who pay for it, but to expand its anti-democratic … Read More
