Vatican: Climate Change Is Man-Made (Ed: say that with a straight face…)

"We all bear responsibility to protect and value creation for the good of future generations.” The Vatican’s Secretary of State told the UN Climate Summit this week that climate change is man-made and man’s responsibility.

Why IS There Such Hatred Of The Traditional Latin Mass?

The following very interesting (to say the least) article, taken from the 'Countercultural Father' blog,  is self-explanatory, and recounts how one priest, south of the border in England, who introduced the Traditional Latin Mass under the terms of Summorum Pontificum, has been replaced by another priest who is apparently hostile (with bells on) towards the old rite.  [Please note that...

We Need Multiple New Masses – Jesuit…

The article below suggesting the setting up of Research & Development Centres to work at producing better Masses, which would then undergo  testing for "market" approval,  is really nothing more than the logical conclusion of creating a new Mass in the first place.  Why NOT keep working at it until we get the "product" that the people like?

Christian Order: The Kasper Apostasy…

With the October Synod on the Family now looming on the horizon, a recent Christian Order editorial really says it all. Be warned though, the Editor, Rod Pead, does not mince his words.
