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

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

How laity should react when Bishops and priests fail to fulfil their mission

José Antonio Ureta was born in Chile in 1951, and is a founding member of ‘Fundación Roma’, which, through its ‘Acción Familia’ campaign, is today one of Chile’s most influential pro-life and pro-family organisations. Mr Ureta is well known to supporters of The Lumen Fidei Institute and to readers of the Catholic Voice newspaper, having addressed several of our conferences. The current presentation was made at our ‘Clarion Call to the Irish Bishops’ conference in the Glenroyal Hotel in Maynooth, … Read More

The Culture of Death!

In his encyclical, ‘Evangelium Vitae’, Pope St John Paul II famously coined the phrase ‘culture of death’. It is important to re-read these things every now and then to keep them fresh in our minds. “In fact, while the climate of widespread moral uncertainty can in some way be explained by the multiplicity and gravity of today’s social problems, and these can sometimes mitigate the subjective responsibility of individuals, it is no less true that we are confronted by an … Read More
