Fr. Amorth Speaks of St. Pio

It is quite interesting that even now the consecration of Russia still excites so much controversy.  I place this here without comment but with the fervent hope that this year proves the turning point for a world on the point of calamity and Christ’s Church which in human terms at least, seems likewise close to…

My Dear Son

There follows a letter first printed in the district magazine of the Society of St. Pius X in the November/December issue.   If I had a son about to choose his vocation in life I could not better this advice.  May the good Lord have mercy on the souls of Mr. Barry and his son Peter….

Instructing the Ignorant

The subject of Ireland’s primary schools is in the news at the moment.  The minister in charge of education, Richard Bruton, is looking at the problem of access to school for the irreligious.  The problem in a nutshell is that the Catholic Church is patron of most catholic schools in Ireland and as patrons expect…

Putting the Fun Back Into Fundamental

The Irish Times, that bastion of journalistic integrity, has printed an article in today’s edition by a priest of the Clogher diocese maintaining that ‘fundamentalist Catholics are turning people off Church in Ireland’.  The author of the article, Fr. Joe McVeigh, never specifies what he means by the label ‘fundamentalist’ but it is quite clear…

A whiff of schism: when different Catholics hold radically different beliefs

At a Catholic parish in Athy, Ireland, a lesbian couple who resigned from parish ministry after entering a legal marriage has returned to active participation—and to loud applause. So now everyone is welcome in St. Michael’s parish, right? Wrong. Anthony Murphy, the editor of Catholic Voice—the man who objected to the lesbian couple’s prominent role…

Suicide and the Church

News broke yesterday of the murder of a family in Ballyjamesduff in County Cavan and the suicide of the murderer. It is certainly an horrible event which hardly bears thinking about. Alan Hawe killed his wife and three sons and then killed himself. He may have been suffering from mental illness, he was certainly suffering…

Clueless, not Catholic!

It would seem that the past president of our little isle is unhappy with the Catholic Church’s teaching on homosexuality.

Archbishop Martin and Maynooth

Last week Archbishop Martin, a trustee at Maynooth College, the national seminary, said he had decided not to send Dublin seminarians to Maynooth any longer due to “an atmosphere of strange goings-on there”.  “It seems like a quarrelsome place with anonymous letters being sent around. I don’t think this is a good place for students,”…

Libellus of Condemned Errors regarding ‘Amoris Laetitia’

The following is a statement issued after a conference organised by a new lay association called Veri Catholici, which in Latin means, “True Catholics”.  The association was set up in response to the call by Bishop Athanasius Schneider “…to engage with our fellow Catholics in more traditional ways. We should organize conferences and symposiums on…

Does the Faith Change?

“The body of bishops failed in their confession of the Faith…. They spoke variously, one against another; there was nothing, after Nicea, of firm, unvarying, consistent testimony, for nearly sixty years. There were untrustworthy Councils, unfaithful bishops; there was weakness, fear of consequences, misguidance, delusion, hallucination, endless, hopeless, extending into nearly every corner of the…

A Historic Indictment

A Review of Antonio Socci’s La Profezia Finale by Christopher A. Ferrara http://www.cfnews.org Introduction Again and again the Italian Catholic and public intellectual Antonio Socci has shocked the Catholic “mainstream” with explosive exposés that confirm the diagnosis of the current crisis in the Church in “traditionalist” and “Fatimite” circles. Unlike so many of his colleagues…
