Recruiting Killers for Irish Hospitals!
post

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?
post

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
post

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
post

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
post

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!
post

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
post

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
post

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
post

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
post

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
