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...

Happy Hogmanay & A Happy & Holy New Year!

Editor writes... We are living through an unprecedented and thoroughly savage diabolical attack on God, His Catholic Church and all things holy.  It's hard to imagine things becoming worse than we've lived through in the past year, but let's call for Our Lady's help, as we enter this new year of 2023 in the spirit...

Resignation of the Bishop of Dunkeld – Catholic Truth Laments Huge Loss to Catholics in Scotland

Editor writes... Over the years, from time to time, I've had occasion to write to Bishop Robson and he has been unfailingly courteous.  We celebrated his positive attitude to Catholic Tradition recently here, and his generous provision of the traditional Latin Mass (TLM)  and sacraments is well known within traditional Mass-going circles.  He will be sorely...

Through the New Mass, the Faith was Lost…

From the Rorate Caeli Blog... At present, the modern Church is working to change its internal constitution, transforming itself and by its own initiative from a hierarchical Church, as willed and instituted by God, to a “synodal” (and therefore humanly constructed) Church. In the one and only Church of Jesus Christ, which is the Catholic...

Who Would Want To Be A White Person In The UK These Days When Being White = Being Racist?

Editor writes... Five years ago, the following tweet was published by a Cambridge student:  "All white people are racist. White middle class, white working class, white men, white women, white gays, white children, they can ALL geddit."    Why live in a country that is full of racists?  Why do so many people from non-white nations...

1st November: Feast of All Saints – Let’s Party!

Editor writes... Since the family in the above video just might inspire some of our bloggers and/or readers to celebrate their own family party to mark the Feast Day, I thought I'd post this thread a little ahead of time for those who would appreciate the ideas and welcome the time to prepare. As always with...

Is It Acceptable to Attend Both Old & New Masses?

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...

Interfaith Conference in Kazakhstan: The Pope Denounces War – Except Against Traditional Mass

From The Independent... Pope Francis told the Russian Orthodox hierarchy and other faith leaders Tuesday that religion must never be used to justify the “evil” of war and that God must never “be held hostage to the human thirst for power.” Against the backdrop of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, Francis opened an interfaith conference in the former Soviet republic...

Third Secret of Fatima: The Abandonment Of The Faith Within Church… Even At The Very Top

One online commentator remarked, perhaps a tad sarcastically on seeing the above video, that "With all respect, it is NO secret at all our Catholic Church is in ruins..."  Editor writes... The narrator in the above (excellent) short film may give the impression of confusing the request of Our Lady for the Consecration of Russia with...
