Feast of the Purification of Our Lady … The Presentation of Jesus in the Temple – Candlemas

Editor writes... In order to pay due tribute to Our Lady on this beautiful Feast, I tried to find the hymn O Purest of Creatures, sung to the tune with which, I believe, most of us in Scotland grew up. YouTube is awash with a very different tune, however, so I've had to settle for...

Africa: The Great Vatican II Success Story … Not!

From New Liturgical Movement... In a recent episode of “Word on Fire,” Bishop Barron responds to Ross Douthat’s two NYT pieces on Vatican II and its failure, by making two arguments: Argument #1: To blame the collapse of Catholicism in the West on Vatican II is a “post hoc propter hoc” fallacy.  [i.e. "after this, because of...

Vatican: Inside Information on the Shenanigans Surrounding Suppression of the Traditional Mass

Editor writes... This from American blogger, Marinaio, in my inbox earlier today...  [This] article is, in my opinion, a real jaw-dropper: it deals with the suppression of the recommendations of the Commission of Cardinals set up in 1986 by Pope John Paul II to examine a fuller liberty for the TLM than that pope gave in...

As regulars on this blog know, I'm no fan of Church Militant, and that for a number of reasons.  However, the "Fulton Sheen incident" recounted by Michael Voris in the above video (which I stumbled across this morning on YouTube) - an incident to which he was an eye and ear witness -...

Preaching? Sermons? Homilies? Who Needs ‘Em?

Editor writes... Over the years, annoyed by the lengthy sermons of seemingly egocentric priests who love the sound of their own voice, some people have expressed the opinion that sermons should be done away with altogether. I remember, too, reading an article penned by a priest some years ago, arguing that homilies should not be about...

Editor writes... Much is made by the modernists of the need to listen to the Holy Spirit speaking to "us" in the Synod, but what they mean by "us" is actually them. The wreckers.

Editor writes... I've met a few people recently who have either returned to attending the Novus Ordo Missae (NOM) on Sundays - due to problems with the location of the various Traditional Latin Masses (TLM) - OR who like to attend both the old and the new Masses, interchangeably, in some cases because they don't...
