Catholic Actors Must NOT Engage in Scripts/Scenes Offensive to God: A Real Turn-Off

Editor  writes... I agree 99% with the "Catholic Wife", although I would make no exceptions; even if we think something may not affect us, the Devil knows better.  We are all subject to our fallen human nature, and so I'd be exhorting us all to steer well clear of films like "Fr Stu" - about...

Happy Feast of St John Ogilvie, Scots Martyr – But Do Scots Priests Believe In Sin These Days?

From Fr John A. Hardon SJ (RIP) Archives... John Ogilvie SJ was born in Scotland of the nobility in 1589 and by that time Scotland had pretty well been lost to the Catholic Church so his up-bringing was Presbyterian. His father, to give him a better education than he could get in Scotland, sent him...

Feast of Saint Robert Southwell, English Martyr

From the Catholic Education Resource Center... ... I don't think there's a single saint who fits nicely in any box the world would like to fashion.  But St. Robert Southwell, a poet, a priest, and a martyr, defies expectations on every front. Robert Southwell was born in 1561 in Protestant England.  Though his family was Catholic, their...

29/9: Feast of St Michael Archangel – Defender of the Church & the Faithful…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=olXmxXQyaGQ Comment:  The crisis in the Church and the world is deepening. Thus, we find ourselves living in a Communist type dictatorship where our political masters rule by decree. We are kept nervously awaiting the latest change of restrictions on our freedom, so it might be worthwhile adding the powerful St Michael prayer to our daily...

Priest: Celtic V Rangers V Mass. Oops!

Pseudonymous Father Justin Thyme, a Glasgow priest, responsible for two parishes in Glasgow,  found himself in a bit of a bind when he realised that the kick-off for the Celtic Vs Rangers game on 31 March, 2019 was at 12 noon. Mass in one of his parishes is at 9 a.m. on Sundays,...

A Tale of Two Priests & Two Masses

From America Magazine... An ordinary Sunday morning. No parish assignment, no preaching. So I decide to go to a church that celebrates the Latin Mass every Sunday at 11 AM. I knew it would be in Latin, but I wasn’t sure if it would be the old Tridentine or new post-Vatican II Latin Mass. Clearly...

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...
