Stand Firm – Hold To Tradition

I am faced with a difficult task today for I wish to reflect upon the latest Apostolic Letter issued ‘Motu Proprio’ by the Supreme Pontiff Francis, which was published on July 16th, the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. This ‘Motu Proprio’ has understandably caused quite a stir within the Catholic Church. Since I began writing for Catholic Voice in December 2013, I have never once criticised Pope Francis in my writings and I do not intend to do … Read More

Reign of Terror

In a stiff Mao-style boiler-suit in a nauseous shade of near-turquoise, the ruthless dictator of more than a sixth of the global population celebrated the dismal centenary of the Chinese Communist Party, the most murderous political movement in the history of our race, by snarling that anyone who tried to tell China what to do would be dealt with by force. At a tediously typical copycat totalitarian military parade the usual procession of tanks and guns accompanied by goose-stepping soldiers … Read More

Mammon or God?

No Man Can Serve Two Masters.For Either He Will Hate The One, And Love The Other:Or He Will Sustain The One, And Despise The Other. Matthew 6:24 The above quotation from St Matthew’s Gospel, pertains to more than just money. In many situations throughout our lives, we are called to choose between God and other things or people that we may love. A baptised Catholic relative decides to get married outside of the Church in a registry office. Family members … Read More

Defending Catholic Tradition

The latest motu proprio of Pope Francis, ‘Traditionis Custodes’, reversing the legislation of his predecessors, St. John Paul II (1984 and 1988) and Benedict XVI (2007), on the use of the Missal of Pope St. Pius V, can only be seen as a contradiction of the two themes of his papacy – Mercy and “who am I to judge”. It is difficult to read Pope Francis’ letter to bishops without concluding that it is highly judgemental and omits even the … Read More

The Burning of Churches

It was the Church that first spoke out against Hitler, in the courageous sermons of Cardinal Faulhaber of Munich and in the encyclical Mit Brennender Sorge, drafted for Pope Pius XI by his successor, Pope Pius XII, while the rest of the world was appeasing the dictator. It was the Church, through the courage of countless priests and prelates, from Cardinal Mindszenty to Pope St. John Paul II, that implacably opposed Communism. The burning to the ground of a dozen … Read More

The Harvest is Rich – Pray for Labourers

In this article I would like to take a break from the bad news and focus on some good news, a light shining in the darkness, if you will. But let us begin by praying an Ave for our bishops. Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum. Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Iesus. Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen. Sometime in either 2009 or 2010, my family and … Read More

The Restoration of Public Morality

When Her Majesty’s Secretary of State for Health was secretly filmed in an amorous embrace with someone who was not his wife, he gave as his reason for resigning his high office his failure, by that furtive embrace, to keep a safe and infection-beating distance from a non-member of his household in accordance with pettifogging, incomprehensible and no longer necessary rules that he had himself eagerly inflicted upon everyone else. However, there was not a word of apology from Mr … Read More

Totalitarian Persecution

The Church has long been seen as the arch-enemy by totalitarians, who hate and fear the independent-mindedness and unwillingness to defer to any mere Party Line that are the glorious consequences of loyalty to God, country and family. The most effective tactic of totalitarian fanatics is organised reputational assault on all who have proven publicly successful in opposing their false ideology. Here, “false” has a particularly strong meaning: for the hallmark of totalitarianism, in all its forms, is its insistence … Read More

Share The Good News!

Let’s start with some much needed good news! Readers may be aware that at the beginning of June a parish church in Dublin decided to fly the LGBT marxist rainbow flag. But after being up for less than 72 hours, the homosexual flag in the grounds of Our Lady of Assumption Church in Ballyfermot, Dublin, was removed due to popular outrage. The Archbishop of Dublin instructed the parish to remove the flag. However, reparation still needed to be done. The … Read More
