Operation Transformation

There is no point in getting religious at 3 AM and looking for a priest as you’re dying. It’s time to wise up, and give ourselves a good wakeup call and stop making excuses. We need to get serious about the souls of our spouses, children, and those entrusted to our pastoral care. The first soul to transform is our own. Let each of us give the example of lived faith. Make A Plan1) Holy Mass every Sunday and Holy … Read More

Exploiting Climate Fanatic Babes!

On the strongest of moral grounds, the Church ought to be vigorously outspoken in opposition to the indoctrination and exploitation of children for political ends. Yet when the Pope recently met a 16-year-old climate-fanatic schoolgirl he failed to express dismay that her teachers, in common with many at State schools throughout the West, had numbed her mind with relentless, half-baked, totalitarian propaganda about the imagined (and imaginary) evils of global warming and the supposed need to Save The Planet by … 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.

Irish Government Body Promotes Flushing Human Remains Down Toilet.

The sheer determination of the Irish Government to normalise abortion has been revealed through the HSE website. Under a section on abortion titled, “pregnancy remains” the HSE state: ” If you have an abortion before 9 weeks of pregnancy, you can decide how to dispose of the remains.

Pope Pius XII – Neither Nazi Lover nor Jew Hater

Opening the Vatican ArchivesThe persisting rumours that Pope Pius XII was a Nazi-loving Jew-hater who culpably failed to speak out against Nazism during the Second World War are false. Now that the British 30-year rule forbidding intelligence matters to be revealed has expired as far as the events I shall describe are concerned, I am at last free to reveal how, by whom and why the Pope’s reputation was soiled. This question is topical again because a certain faction has … Read More

Mass Migration is a New Form of Slavery!

“My country has a Muslim majority. I think I know what I am talking about” “All the migrants who arrive in Europe are penned up, without work, without dignity…. Is that what the Church wants?” Cardinal Robert Sarah posed this question in an interview given to journalist Laurent Dandrieu on the 27th of March for the French conservative weekly magazine Valeurs Actuelle. “The Church,” Cardinal Sarah said, “cannot cooperate with this new form of slavery that mass migration has become.  … Read More

St Ambrose

Born c. 340 AD, Saint Ambrose came from a high ranking Roman patrician family. He received a classical education, and then engaged upon the civil career his father had planned for him. He enjoyed great success, rapidly rising through the ranks and becoming the Prefect of Milan, one of the most important posts in the Western Empire at that time. Despite a pious mother and sister, Ambrose himself was only a catechumen during the first 33 years of his life. … Read More

Is the Church Militant militant enough?

In this new, weekly column. I shall speak my mind plainly but with affection for all and hatred for none. You will find no challenges to your faith here. One either accepts that the Lord of Life is Who He said He was and that His Church is what He said she would be or one does not. I do. So there. Faith, as the Catechism says, is a supernatural gift of God, by which we are enabled to believe … Read More

Notre Dame Cathedral

Why cathedrals like Notre Dame are not a vainglorious extravagance During the Middle Ages, when all those mediaeval SUVs made the weather worldwide rather warmer than it is today, Notre Dame and the other great cathedrals of Europe were built. It had recently become fashionable in some circles to condemn these magnificent symphonies in stone as mere “ecclesiastical plant” – a vainglorious extravagance whose original building cost and subsequent maintenance costs would have been better deployed in feeding the poor. … Read More
