The Restoration Of The Priestly Spirit…

Comment Our Lady  foretold that her Son would "send a prelate to restore the priestly spirit" and it seems very clear that the name of that prelate is Archbishop Lefebvre. The priests in the video are a reminder of what priests, routinely, used to be like. Who needs a definition of "the priestly spirit" when listening...

Named Person Scheme Sinister… Gives State Sweeping Powers Over Family…

We've discussed this topic before - the legislation due to come into force in the autumn whereby the primary relationship of every child in Scotland - from pre-born to 18 years - is to be with the Named Person (NP) appointed by the State, not their parents.  Each time I've discussed this with some of the  parents in my circle, I've been absolutely...

Condolences From Editor & Bloggers…

I have permission from the Catholic Truth Treasurer, Ms McMoneypenny - real name Norah - to announce the sad news of the death of her father, Robert (Bobby)  aged 93, last Monday, 15th June. Norah does blog here but wishes to withhold her username as she is the shy, retiring type (not like certain...

Pope Calls For Action To “Save The Planet”; Silent On Saving The Faith

In what I believe was probably a very rare exercise in sarcasm, blogger, Athanasius, emailed me the other day to say that he was greatly looking forward to the new encyclical, adding "Ireland has just officially apostatised from the Faith and the Pope's  writing about the environment.  Things are truly bad!" Quite.  The Church is falling apart...

The other day, a family member was telling me about a "personality test" that enables us to work out to which "type" of personality (out of four possible categories) we belong.  The test is here   However, when I completed the test earlier today I came out as "nervous melancholic" and when I looked at the results, absolutely everything...

Surely, Now’s The Time To Raise Most Important Issue In The World?

Below, a report of the planned meeting between the Pope and Vladimir Putin in Rome - surely an excellent opportunity to raise the question of the Consecration of Russia.  I say that, because I doubt that Putin will have any objection, and that puts the bishops in their place. I did read somewhere that he...

Court Vs Conversation…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1EJi_1vesU Obviously, it is wrong to use an employer's time to evangelise (or do anything else that is unrelated to the job  - that's stealing) but what about breaks, lunchtime etc?  Is it OK to discuss religion, hopefully bring colleagues to at least think about the Faith? Or is it a case of "not the time...
