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 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

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 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

ALL authority has been given to ME.

‘In giving us his Son, his only definitive Word, God has spoke everything to us at once in his sole Word, and has no more to say’. (St John of the Cross 1542-1593) In recent times, there has been much discussion in The Irish Catholic around the topics of the tragic shootings in Christchurch, NZ to the views of Dr Oliver Rafferty SJ, of Boston College, concerning the continual demise of priestly vocations and the latest novelty to arrest that … Read More

Abortion Regrets

We held a very successful conference in Limerick on Saturday 25th May, the first anniversary of the passage of Ireland’s ‘abortion’ referendum which allows the government to legislate for the termination of pregnancy without any restrictions. Due to the wording of the referendum, the Irish people no longer have a say in this matter as the government have freed themselves from the restrictions of our constitution. One of the key points that emerged for me from our conference last Saturday, … Read More
