Totalitarian Ireland

Divorce is Wrong.On May 24th, the Irish electorate were asked once again to amend our constitution. Before getting into the subject matter of what we were asked to vote on, I would like to reflect on what exactly our constitution is. Put very simply, the Irish Constitution, Bunreacht na hÉireann, is the only mechanism which gives the Irish electorate control over what our governing bodies can and cannot do. Our constitution sets the limits of government power and seeks to … Read More

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

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

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 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

Calling Evil Good – Holles Street Hospital

Ireland’s National Maternity Hospital is in the news for all of the wrong reasons. The details that have emerged so far, say that a baby was aborted because a preliminary test showed up the possibility of Trisomy 18. The baby was aborted, and then subsequent test results showed no evidence of Trisomy 18. I was born in Holles Street Hospital. My youngest daughter was also born there because of a complicated pregnancy. My wife was in Holles Street for nine … Read More

The New War on our Children

The new war on children in Ireland is mainly a propaganda war, but it will leave as many child victims in its wake as military warfare does. The casualties will be many unless parents stand up to the LGBT bullies who seek to promote their disordered lifestyle by corrupting the minds of young children. In a way I feel sorry for those who adhere to the LGBT lifestyle. They are being manipulated and used by higher powers in order to … Read More

Meet abortion survivor Claire Culwell at our Celebrating Human Life Conference – May 2019 – Savoy Hotel, Limerick

Saturday 25th May, 2019, is the first anniversary of the referendum which removed legal protection from innocent human beings in their mother’s wombs in Ireland.

The Lumen Fidei Institute will mark this first anniversary by hosting a conference ‘Celebrating Human Life’, in the Savoy Hotel in Limerick from 9.30am to … Read More

Primary Teacher’s Group, Corrupting Irish Children!

The Irish National Teacher’s Organisation (INTO), which boasts that it is, “the largest teachers’ union in Ireland”, is re-launching a competition into Irish primary schools this May 2019, which will corrupt the innocence of children by falsely teaching them that those who live in same-sex relationships are equal to sacramentally married couples . The competition offers a prize of an iPad for the winning class. The theme of the competition is, ‘Different Families, Same Love’. Like much of the evil … Read More
