Bernie Smyth – Precious – Life Northern Ireland

The current situation as regards abortion in Northern Ireland is very serious. On 18th July this year, the UK parliament voted to extend both abortion and ‘same-sex marriage’ legislation to Northern Ireland despite the fact that this a breach of the devolution settlement governing Northern Ireland. Once again we see countries who claim to support democracy, undermining democracy. We have seen this same totalitarian attitude down South where Leo Varadkar has consistently tried to place obstacles in the way of … Read More

Mother Angelica’s Trust in God

Mother Angelica: a woman of great faith and wisdom.According to the media, 2016 was awash with celebrity deaths, probably no more than usual. Celebrities die every year, possibly more died in other years than died in 2016, or maybe that year was out of the ordinary, I don’t know and have no desire to find out. One thing that frustrated me though is that throughout most of 2016, some of these celebrities were being paraded as heroes. I’ve no doubt … Read More

In Praise of Cardinal Burke

Cardinal Burke fearlessly declares the One, True Faith.Cardinal Raymond Burke has about him an air of gentle, quietly-spoken authority that commands the respect of all whom he meets. The Declaration in which he and several brother bishops have listed some of the commonest fashionable errors of doctrine stands in a long and honourable tradition of adherence to the truth when many in high places have wavered. Here is a summary of the Declaration: The Faith is immutable. The Declaration begins … Read More

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

The Persecution of Cardinal Pell?

Christian persecution takes many forms. Sometimes it is a knife on a Libyan beach, taking the head of a believer who refuses to repudiate Christ even when threatened with death. Often it is done under the guise of ‘justice’, where those Muslim countries that operate Sharia law allow non-Muslims to be treated as second-class citizens. Increasingly in the West it wears the mask of ‘tolerance’, where those who refuse to comply with secular liberal values are treated as haters and … Read More

Abortion supporters are the extremists.

It is the baby-butchers, not we who oppose them, who are extremistsOn May 25 this year, the anniversary of the Dismal Referendum in which the increasingly totalitarian population voted for baby-butchering, was marked by a Mass of reparation in the recently-restored parish church of the Sacred Heart in Limerick. During recent speculation about whether the arch-Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg might be chosen by the ruling Conservative Party in Britain as its new leader when the most incompetent Prime Minister in our … 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

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
