“Charismatic Catholicism” Is NOT The Faith of the Saints; It Stunts Spiritual Growth – To Be Avoided!

Editor writes... More and more, I hear about people of all ages who are not keen to attend the Traditional Latin Mass (TLM)  - the Mass which nourished the saints and martyrs - because they have been so used to the noise and activity of the new Mass, the Novus Ordo Missae (NOM).  They like...

Archbishop Nolan: Rwanda Policy “Appalling” … Double-Living Priests in Glasgow, Not So Much

Editor writes... It's a pity that the Archbishop of Glasgow is not quite so appalled, it seems, by the information I passed to him recently, about a stack of double-living priests in the Archdiocese of Glasgow - his priests, who are making a living out of the Church while enjoying their "lives on the side",...

Lacegate: Why Does Pope Francis Hate Tradition?

From the Catholic Herald: Granny’s lace – why is Pope Francis so unsupportive of ordinary clergy? If faith, as the nuns said, was the substance of things hoped for, then lace was the outline—the suggestion—of things not seen. —Iris Anthony, The Ruins of Lace (2012) A priest writes...

Media Agenda: Why Are Minority Groups Over-Represented, Even in Television Advertisements?

From Editor's Inbox Westminsterfly writes...

Dr David Livingstone Slavery Abolitionist Falls Foul of Woke Brigade Anyway – Stupidiots!

From The Telegraph... How did David Livingstone, arguably one of Scotland’s most famous abolitionists, end up on Glasgow’s iconoclast topple list? Glasgow City’s newly released report, Slavery and Atlantic Commerce, seeks to focus ‘on individuals (almost exclusively men)...whom were residents of Glasgow and its associated towns and rural hinterlands, and…involved with Atlantic slavery between c.1603 and 1838’....

A New Way To Attract Vocations – Or Not?

A priest sent me several videos similar to the above, showing priests, religious, laity, having great fun, participating in the "Jerusalma challenge" - one even includes some dancing in the sanctuary.
