Dr Petroc Willey, of the Maryvale Institute based in Birmingham, (Ed: pictured above with Pope Francis) wrote to students this morning explaining that he will be leaving his job for personal...

Orthodoxy Vs Tradition?

The Flock, a conservative publication edited by Daphne McLeod, has been, for many years now, the mouthpiece of Catholics in the UK, concerned about the dreadful state of religious education in Catholic schools. The current edition, which arrived in my inbox yesterday, is brilliant in its exposé of the latest text-book to be used...

Fatima: Russia Converted…Evidence Overwhelming – Joanna Bogle…

Father Gruner Insulted One of our readers in England emailed me a link to a disgraceful article penned by Joanna Bogle on her blog. To say that she's been nasty about Father Nicholas Gruner, well known Fatima priest, is to say that she's remained silent about the dissenting priests who make up the apostate Association...

Angels: An Article of Catholic Faith…

As we approach the Feast of the Archangel St. Raphael on 24 October, we will  undoubtedly benefit from  taking some time to reflect on the importance of angels in Catholic belief.  I’ve seen more than one “celebrity Catholic” squirm in TV interviews when asked if they believe in angels, and the waffle answers are...

Should Catholics Keep Heads in Sand?

Pope Francis (Remnant) Editor’s Note: As this article went to press, the Vatican Press Office—clearly in response to worldwide expressions of dismay by concerned Catholics—has floated reports that the interview of Pope Francis by Eugenio Scalafari quoted in this article was not a verbatim transcript and that Scalfari did not use a tape recorder or...

A Tale of Two Canonisations: Church in future will question their validity – SSPX

Nine years after his death, after an exceptionally rapid process, John Paul II will be canonized on April 27, 2014, together with John XXIII, who will have the benefit of a dispensation from a miracle so as to make possible a joint canonization. Why this expedited procedure and this decision to unite the two popes...
