A Catholic Understanding of the Separation of Church and State

The separation of Church and State, as defined by the Encyclopedia Britannica, takes on two main forms, classified as American and French. These two are similar, in appearance, but work toward opposite ends. The American form: “as implied in the Constitution of the United States, was supported by a tendency to leave to the church, […]

Building an Ownership Economy

There are really only two paths in economics: Moral and Amoral. That’s it. Either economies are governed by a system of morals, or they’re not. That’s all there is to it. Basically, economics is just morality (or lack thereof) by another name. There’s really nothing all that complicated about it. Either we have a moral […]

The Catholic Church After Quarantine

This is an opinion blog, so what you’re going to read below is my opinion. Take it for whatever it’s worth to you. Anyone who regularly reads this blog knows that I am an advocate for a return to traditional Catholicism, but readers should also know that when I say that I don’t mean turning […]

Globalism is Dead – Long Live Patriotism

Globalism is dead. It was on its way out since 2016, with the passage of the Brexit Referendum in the UK and the election of President Donald J. Trump in the US. However, the final nail in the coffin was the Wuhan Virus (COVID-19), the Coronavirus pandemic, also known as the “Chinese Virus” or #WuFlu. […]

Reflections on Querida Amazonia

Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation on the Amazon Synod has been released. Titled Querida Amazonia, the document proved to not be the bombshell Faithful Catholics were so worried about. While not on the caliber of anything we would expect from Pope St. John Paul II, or Pope Benedict XVI, and it does have some problems in […]

Rome Will Have to Choose

There are two polarities in the Catholic Church today, and while these two polarities have existed together under the popes for a generation, that tension will not last much longer. This is nothing new. Situations like this have existed in the past, and the result is always the same — schism. Honestly, I don’t know […]

Beware of German Catholicism

The Catholic Church in Germany has been the leading proponent of heterodox (heretical) teaching and practice for decades now. While we can find many examples of heterodoxy, innovation, and outright lunacy in other places throughout the Church, the German bishops have taken a leading role and are now in the process of positioning themselves as […]

The English Patrimony is for All Catholics

If you’re a Catholic, and you speak English as your primary language, then you have a special heritage you may not even be aware of. The English Patrimony, lost in the Protestant world for centuries, has now been restored to the Catholic Church. I’m talking about the English spiritual heritage that was originally Catholic, from […]

Catholics Cannot Be Masons

For those of you who still might think Freemasonry is just some harmless boys club with funny hats, think again. No organization has been condemned by the Catholic Church more than the Masonic Lodge. The Catholic Church has imposed the penalty of excommunication on all Catholics who become Freemasons (or members of the Masonic Lodge). […]

What Is The Divine Worship Mass (DWM)?

The Divine Worship Mass, otherwise known as the DWM, is a traditional Catholic liturgy of the Eucharist that is celebrated in Sacred English (thee, thou, thy, thine, etc.) as typically seen in traditional English translations of the Bible and prayer books. It follows the basic pattern of the standard Ordinary Form Mass (Novus Ordo or […]

On the Splashing of Idols

On October 4, 2019, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, Pope Francis hosted an event in the Vatican Gardens which stunned the world. Here, Amazonian natives were invited to share their ceremonial customs, together with some some religious brothers and sisters. The pope watched the ceremony nearby, but did not participate, except to receive […]

My Thoughts on Pope Francis

In a recent jet-presser at 30,000 feet, Pope Francis commented that he felt “honored” that some traditional-Catholic Americans were attacking him. Why does this not surprise me? It seems obvious to me that he doesn’t care for those Catholic Americans who consider themselves “orthodox” or “traditional.” On the flip side, I think it’s fair and […]

A Game of Chicken

It appears that what we have going on here is an ecclesiastical game of “chicken.” Bonn and Rome are on a head-on collision course, and both are waiting to see who turns first. The objective of the German Bishops Conference in Bonn is to set the agenda for radical changes in the German Church BEFORE […]

Evangelical Questions About the Crisis in the Catholic Church

A video chronology of the decline of the Catholic Church. Living in the Ozark Mountains, deep within the Bible Belt, I am immersed in a Baptist/Pentecostal (Evangelical) culture that is, for the most part, ignorant about the Catholic Church and what’s going on therein. The Catholic population of the Ozarks is between 3% and 6%, […]

Forget Liberal Catholics — Convert the Evangelicals!

[Jesus] said to him, “A certain man made a great supper, and he invited many people. He sent out his servant at supper time to tell those who were invited, ‘Come, for everything is ready now.’ They all as one began to make excuses. “The first said to him, ‘I have bought a field, and […]

The Benedict Option for Catholics

Rod Dreher is an amazing author and columnist. He was an Evangelical Christian who came into the Catholic Church, where he was confronted by the “Spirit of Vatican II” (a bastardization of the authentic Vatican II) and the Lavender Mafia, which promptly drove him out of the Catholic Church and into the arms of Eastern […]

Mary’s Immaculate Heart Will Prevail

As Catholics we must remember this, in spite of the present crisis the Church now finds herself in, we have Our Lady’s promise at Fatima that in the end, her Immaculate Heart will prevail. What does this mean in the midst of our present crisis? Before we dive into that, let’s review what we actually […]

Uniting the Clans: Why All Traditional Catholics Must Work Together

Recently, Dr. Taylor Marshal had a video chat with Michael Matt, Editor of the Remnant Newspaper and Remnant TV. For those of you who don’t know these two, Dr. Taylor Marshall is a former Anglican priest, who converted to Catholicism as a layman, and is a well known Catholic author, theologian, Thomist and apologist.  While […]

Is Easter a Pagan Celebration?

There is a thread of radical Protestant Fundamentalism that likes to attack traditional Christian celebrations — particularly Christmas and Easter. We see this primarily among the Jehovah’s Witnesses (which aren’t technically Protestant or Fundamentalist but rather a separate religion entirely more akin to Arianism). The Protestants include, but are not limited to: Fundamental Baptists, Quakers, […]

On the Rise of Ethnic-Nationalism

At the risk of sounding a little edgy, I want to write about something that’s concerning to me. As some of you may know, I like to try to stay ahead of the curve, and so I will occasionally frequent Internet blogs, groups and channels from people and organizations that are currently on the fringe, […]

On Use of the Word “Anglican” in Reference to the Ordinariates

I have a feeling that if some future generation ever manages to read this essay, it will be thought of as some kind of historic novelty, and perhaps even amusing. Today, however, I am sure this essay will generate profound emotion on both sides of the debate. The debate itself is over the use of […]

Support the Anglican Patrimony WITHIN the Catholic Church

A number of Catholics have contacted me recently, inquiring where they might find worthy, traditional, orthodox and reverent Catholic societies they might support in the wake of the current crisis now unfolding in the Church, both in the United States and worldwide. Naturally, the first thing I tell them is to support any traditional parish […]

Parallel Centuries

Looking at the historical Church parallels between the 16th century and the 21st century is shocking. For those of you who don’t know history, the 16th century was quite a mess. Corruption in the Catholic Church was extremely high. There were terrible popes. Sexual license was rampant throughout the Church but most especially in Rome. […]

Europe is Catholic

The so-called “European Union” or EU is failing because it is not based on the one and only thing that could possibly hold it together — Catholicism. By ditching its Christian heritage, the EU was doomed to failure before it ever really began. A union based on Secularism is doomed to fail. Such will be […]

Inculturation — What It Is and Isn’t

In sharing the Gospel with the world, the Catholic Church has adopted a process called inculturation. This can basically be summed up as follows. The traditions of the Gospel have a central doctrinal core, which are based in Mosaic Judaism, but redefined according to Christ and his Apostles. Some traditions are essential and cannot be […]

Schism in the Catholic Church

While the title of this essay may be controversial, I think it reflects a certain reality currently unfolding before our eyes. I am not writing to “declare” a schism. I have no authority to do so, nor do I need to. The schism has already been declared by the words and actions of many others. […]

Rebirth of the Russian Empire

Throughout the 1990s, South Ossetians aggressively pushed for independence from the Republic of Georgia, ultimately seeking reunification with North Ossetia in Russia. Then on 12 November 2006, South Ossetia held a referendum which resulted in an overwhelming “yes” vote for independence from Georgia. In response both the Republic of Georgia, and the international community in […]

When St. Patrick Weeps

What happened in Ireland is so terrible because of the implications behind it. In the United States, the American people never voted, en masse, to legalise abortion. Outside of the very liberal “blue” states, where politicians can’t even get elected unless they’re at least modestly pro-abortion, the vast majority of American states (“red” states in […]
