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. Simply put, the Jerusalema challenge is a dance. Those taking up the challenge perform a dance reel to the song Jerusalema, a gospel-influenced house...

The Holy Name of Jesus: Use Sparingly, Please…

For some time, I've meant to post a thread on the (sadly) casual use of the Holy Name of Jesus, especially when used as an expletive. This is something which is especially noticeable among Irish Catholics - certainly in Ireland itself. Some years ago, a non-Catholic remarked on this, saying that, in his view, nothing is...

Vatican II “Not From God”- New Mass/Attacks on Our Lady = Proof…

May 6, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – In a new interview, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò [left] has once more returned to the topic of the Second Vatican Council, the loss of Marian devotion followed by that Council, as well as the deficiencies of the Novus Ordo Mass.

Why Is The Remnant Promoting “Controversial” Akita Apparition?

Comment:  At one time, I was convinced of the truth of the Akita apparitions.  The "Cardinals against Cardinals, Bishops against Bishops" did it for me.  I didn't join up the dots at all.  It didn't occur to me that Cardinals and Bishops had been opposing one another since before the Second Vatican Council and even...
