Convertere ad Dominum Deum tuum

Will the baptized of Ireland shut their eyes to the light set ablaze by Saint Patrick? Will the baptized of Ireland stop up their ears to the truth of the Gospel that he preached? Will the baptized of Ireland turn their backs to the burning and pierced Heart that once ruled over every hearth? Is […]

A Pulverised Society

The starting point is only the love of God. There is no other solution. We can love our neighbor as God has loved us, just because God has loved us first. So, when we speak of love, we are not referring to an abstract and passing sentimentalism, but of a lasting and eternal love. Love […]

Daft Youths Endlessly Prose On

This sick age of ours craves Moral High Ground; so people luxuriate in the easy and cost-free deploring of a previous Holocaust; daft youths endlessly prose on about the rights of sodomites and eunuchs and demonstrate for the demolition of statues of people they hadn’t heard of until yesterday. And, in an even greater access […]

What Concord Hath Christ with Belial?

Intervention of Robert Cardinal Sarah, Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments Ordinary Synod on the Family, October 2015 Your Holiness, Your Eminences, Your Excellencies, participants of the Synod, I propose these three thoughts: 1.

Les Terroristes de la Pensée

De l’autre, l’idéologie qui manipule l’homme au mépris de Dieu. D’un côté, des adversaires déclarés […]

We Must Not Come Down with These Illnesses

We are mistaken if we think that in order to have European prosperity we need to come down with these illnesses [the diseases of the Western society]… Among the requirements of the European community are pseudo-values. The EU looks like a teenager who is testing the limits of morality and needs a Christian education. Europe was built […]

A False Peace

Those who insufficiently value human life and, in consequence, support among other things the liberalization of abortion, perhaps do not realize that in this way they are proposing the pursuit of a false peace. The flight from responsibility, which degrades human persons, and even more so the killing of a defenceless and innocent being, will […]

Dégénérations

My rough translation from French to English: Your great-great-grandmother, she had fourteen children; Your great-grandmother had almost as many; For your grandmother three were enough; And your mother didn’t want any: you were an accident. As for you, my girl, you change partners all the time. When you do something stupid, you get out of […]
