Recruiting Killers for Irish Hospitals!

In an unsurprising development, the National Maternity Hospital in Holles Street in Dublin, recently published a job advertisement where they specifically wish to recruit killers for their hospital. The ad is for a consultant in anaesthesia and for a consultant in obstetrics/gynaecology. In the job description it mentions that the new recruits will have certain duties, “which as of 2019 includes elective termination of pregnancy services and the post-holders will be expected to contribute to this new service as part … Read More

Who Then Can Trust Their Doctor?

The news which The Sunday Times (Jan 27th) carried on its banner title that a TD had been denied Holy Communion due to his decision to vote not only for the killing of the unborn, but with the equal rejection of pro-life amendments requested by eleven TD’s, asks that an uneasy question has to be raised with regards to what we have rapidly become. In her excellent letter (Nov 23rd) Fiona Larmon listed the demands which Deputy Tobin and his … Read More

Five Reasons for Hope in the New Pro-death Ireland

The repeal of the Eighth Amendment by a two to one majority, swiftly followed by the extreme legislation promised by the government during the course of the referendum debate, might give the impression that Ireland is now a firmly pro-death country and the pro-life movement is finished. There are, however, many reasons to those who adhere to the laws of God and nature on this matter to have hope for the future. 1 The huge mandate the government claims is … Read More

Septuagesima: Between the Keys

We have only just closed the joyful celebration of Christmas with the feast of Candlemas; and the liturgy has cast aside the festive gold and solemn white to vest herself once again with the green of hope during these last few Sundays of January and the first of February. It is hard to believe that Lent is already fast approaching, but that will be made clear with the arrival of Septuagesima Sunday. The ministers will don the violet vestments of … Read More

The Sanctuary of the Family

I was asked to speak at a conference in Galway on Saturday 12th January,  2019, hosted by the newly formed Round Tower Association. The conference was on the role of the Catholic family. Dr William Newton, a professor of Theology at Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio, gave an interesting presentation where he interviewed his wife Mrs Claire Newton about Catholic family life under the heading ‘The Family: Building the Sanctuary of Life and Love’. The interview was interspersed with … Read More

No – You Are Not Church!

The group “We Are Church Ireland” are sadly deluded in their claim. This self appointed group believe that they are the Church and that whatever they say should be what the Catholic Church teaches and believes. Their misguided beliefs are understandable in an age where proper catechesis is hard to come by, their incredible arrogance less so. Colm Holmes, a spokesman for ‘We Are Church Ireland’, in an interview for Soul Waves Radio referencing Pope Francis said, “Dialogue dialogue dialogue… … Read More

Ignoring the Problem

The Lumen Fidei Institute has responded to Archbishop Eamon Martin’s request for feedback for the forthcoming Vatican summit on abuse. The refusal to acknowledge the homosexual nature of most of the abuse is very disappointing for lay Catholics, especially for those of us who have sons. Pope St John XXIII approved the instruction “Careful Selection And Training Of Candidates For The States Of Perfection And Sacred Orders” which was proclaimed by the Sacred Congregation for Religious on February 2, 1961. … Read More

Great Saints of History

What their lives can teach us in these troubled times Role models for fallen humanity The history of our Catholic Church points to innumerable great Saints and Martyrs. In addition of course we also have innumerable very powerful holy people that have not been canonised by the Church but who very likely occupy very high places in the heavenly realm. Since Jesus came to earth through the Immaculate Conception of Our Lady the gold standard was set by the Holy … Read More

Lumen Fidei Institute RSE Submission

The Lumen Fidei Institute has responded to the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment’s request for submissions on Relationships & Sexuality Education in Irish schools. We point out that the Irish government has uncritically accepted the false and unscientific LGBT agenda and now seeks to impose that agenda on Irish school children regardless of the school’s ethos and regardless of parent’s wishes in this matter. As usual, consultation with parents is minimal and arises after the reports have been commissioned. … Read More

Catholic Parents Wake Up! – Government’s Endgame for your Children

On January 29th, 2019, the ‘Oireachtais Joint Committee on Education and Skills’ published its report on Relationships and Sexuality Education in Ireland. This report, along with another report on the same topic which is due out later this year from the NCCA (National Council for Curriculum and Assessment), represents a part of the government strategy to fully take over the Catholic schools of Ireland and to suppress Catholic teaching on human sexuality in all schools in Ireland. A totalitarian view … Read More

Abortion – The Business of Murder

The picture of the man above is taken from a video that was posted this week on Life Site News. The video is very graphic and very upsetting. The man is an abortionist, and the video shows him rooting through a metal sieve for the body parts of the human being he has just murdered. He measures the little foot in order to confirm the age of this human being and he also holds the crushed head up for the … Read More

Government attacks on Catholic Parents & their Children

A report is being launched today by the Oireachtais Committee on Education & Skills on ‘Relationships & Sexuality Education’ in Irish schools. Media coverage of the report tells us some of what is in the report. The report recommends that all children will be taught about abortion, contraception and all children are to be indoctrinated in the false LGBT ideology regardless of the ethos of the school. This report is the latest move in Government attacks on the rights of … Read More

Coercive Sex-Ed in Irish Catholic Schools

Please Contact Your TD to Oppose Coercive Sex Education: A private members bill was introduced into Dáil Éireann by Paul Murphy of ‘People Before Profit’ on March 28th 2018. The Bill seeks ” to guarantee the right of students to receive factual and objective relationships and sexuality education without regard to the characteristic spirit of the school.”. In other words, they seek to legally impose an RSE programme which contradicts the ethos of Catholic schools. Mr Murphy, in introducing the … Read More

The Media, the politician and Lumen Fidei

Yesterday, I briefly appeared on RTE Six One News in connection with the Josepha Madigan invite to speak at Mother Catherine McCauley’s first foundation. The Sisters of Mercy have withdrawn the use of the Mercy International Centre from the ‘We Are Church’ organisation and Josepha Madigan will not be speaking at this venue, thanks be to God. In her letter to ‘We Are Church’, Sister Mary Reynolds claimed that “to ignore the opposition being expressed would put Mercy International at … Read More

The Lumen Fidei Roadshow 2019

This March sees the beginning of our ‘Lumen Fidei Roadshow’ where we will host a series of meetings around the country to promote the teachings of the Catholic Church and to encourage faithful Catholics to stand and resist the growing secular culture that threatens to engulf Ireland. 2018 was a year of ignominy for Ireland and her people. Legislation was enacted, with the help of corrupt politicians, which allows for the killing of certain innocent human beings in their mother’s … Read More
