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...

Are Christians Who Reject Truth…Christians?

Our American blogger, RCA Victor writes...    [Below] a powerful article from the owner of Gab (free speech platform) about Christians who reject truth. The writer is a Protestant, I believe, though he attended a Jesuit college in Pennsylvania.  Christians who reject truth?  Hmmmm, sounds familiar…. Extract below... Men are men. Women are women.

Happy Feast of St Margaret, Queen of Scotland!

In the traditional calendar, 10 June remains the Feast of St Margaret (celebrated in modern  parishes on 16 November.)  Below,  the edifying context for the prayer quoted in the image above: In 1093, Malcolm and their oldest son died in battle.

Catholic Truth to Neil Oliver – Stick To Politics: Scripture Scholarship Is Really Not Your Thing!

Editor writes... I found Neil Oliver's talk in the above video interesting enough until he decided to have a swipe at the Church, setting himself up as something of an expert in the interpretation of the Lord's Prayer.  Here's the gist of his genius... First-up, he makes the mistake of taking Christ's words about forgiving debts...

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

From Editor's Inbox Westminsterfly writes...

Wootton on “Scheming Sturgeon” in the USA…

Two commentators on the YouTube platform write... She's a perfect example of the phrase 'never interrupt your enemy while they are making mistakes'. The woman and her party are a joke.

Scottish First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, Refuses To Define “Woman” Ahead of Local Elections

Editor writes... It might be worth asking the canvassers (from all Parties) who come to our doors, if they can see the irony in the drive by politicians to prevent "misinformation" online while, at the same time, trying to convince us that men can be women and women can be men, as long as that's...
