Hope In A Time Of Crisis

We received the following poem from a former gambling addict who now helps those suffering from addiction. Many people do not realise that recovering addicts are currently denied access to their support groups; they are not allowed to meet. This can lead some of them into despair or to a return to their addictions. Colin tries to give them Hope. Corona Death The wind has got my number, it’s responding to the dead.Damn banshees dealing poker from the bottom of … Read More

Blessings In Disguise

As readers will know we are currently living and working in England, we are very keen to return to Ireland but this will not be possible until Kim’s back has healed well enough to cope with the journey home, progress is steady but slow and it is likely we will have to stay here until the summer. One of the advantages of being in England is that I am able to attend Mass several times a week. The spaces are … Read More

Servant Of God Jacques Fesch

“Great sinners make great Saints. God has big plans for you”- Servant of God Fr. John Hardon SJ. I really love every story of conversion because each one is unique just like all of our human stories. But what each one has in common is the glorious power of God to touch our lives in an instant and transform them sometimes instantly. In a meditation of the day in the Magnificat I came across a piece about Jacques Fesch who … Read More

The Mass is Utterly Essential

Let us begin with a prayer for our bishops imploring God that they will allow us to return to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for Easter. 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. I have recently had to move house as my landlord and his wife needed to move back into the house we were … Read More

St Thomas Aquinas on Fortitude

It belongs to the virtue of fortitude to remove any obstacle that withdraws the will from following the reason. Now to be withdrawn from something difficult belongs to the notion of fear, which denotes withdrawal from an evil that entails difficulty… Hence fortitude is chiefly about fear of difficult things, which can withdraw the will from following the reason. And it behooves one not only firmly to bear the assault of these difficulties by restraining fear, but also moderately to … Read More

Courage Is The Virtue We Need

More Articles featuring the writings of St Thomas Aquinas can be found on ‘The Catholic Gentleman’ website. Goodness, patriotism, honesty and loyalty are losing their battles not by conflict, but by default. Those who are called to be defenders of what is right are not wounded in the battle, they flee. Courage has always been in the past the attribute of those who have faith; now the moral leaders become defenders only of the feeble. They are afraid to speak … Read More

The God-Hater’s Coup

The far Left, now in near-total control of schools, universities, civil service departments, the news media, electronic social media and much else, hate Christianity. Very nearly all the legislative measures taken worldwide in opposition to the moral teachings of the Church, have been taken by the totalitarian Left. The savagely murderous abortion law that has recently been enacted in Argentina is just the latest example. Unfortunately, even the Holy See is now under the influence of their faction. It was … Read More

Pharma Horrors Of Vaccine Development

(This article is available to download here as it appeared in Catholic Voice. Please feel free to print and share) As I begin this article it is looking likely that we will be unable to attend the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for Easter. We are once again witnessing the suppression of the practice of the Catholic Faith in Ireland and this time, it is more diabolical in that it is more deceptive as it is being done under the … Read More

Morally Mandatory Vaccines?

(This article is available to download here as it appeared in Catholic Voice. Please feel free to print and share) Are Catholics Obliged To Take Covid-19 Vaccines Regardless Of Their Origins? In what has now become a trademark for my articles can I please ask you yet again to pray for our Irish bishops. The laity have begun the year without access to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and our bishops seem to suggest that the answer to this … Read More

Ireland’s New Religion

(This article is available to download here as it appeared in Catholic Voice. Please feel free to print and share) Let us continue to pray earnestly for our Irish bishops as the evidence continues to grow of a renewed persecution of the Catholic Church in Ireland, the like of which has not been since the Penal times. Although not yet violent, the signs are beginning to emerge that dissent from the new secular religion will not be tolerated for much … Read More
