Reflection on Michael Voris and the Popes

The refusal of Voris to criticise a pope while he is so, is like remaining silent when an evil man wrecks havoc, but then digging up his bones and burning them.

Reflection on the Feast of Christ the King

Wherever there is an intellect or will, human association or collaboration, solitude or public expression,  may Christ be known and honoured. Through Him, all was created and all was redeemed by the sprinkling of His royal and priestly blood. To Whom else, does man owe his gratitude and worship?

Reflection on Conscience and the Synod

It was once said that the exercise of religion must be restricted to one's private home, yet now they go even further. The internal forum must today be a refuge from even the rudiments of Christian morality.

"Hail King of the Jews!" And they mocked and scourged Him.

Reflection on Decentralisation of the Catholic Church

The Church is most appropriately named "Catholic", signifying her universality. The unity of the Faith is to be held by all who cling to her bosom. The definition of the Faith can therefore never be restricted to historically formed borders of the nation state. A local bishop has a jurisdiction limited to his own diocese, therefore he can not define the Faith of the universal Church. One Faith was delivered to the Apostles, once and for all nations and for all times. It belongs to the solemn function of the Roman Pontiff who has universal and immediate jurisdiction over the Catholic Church to bind the faithful in the orthodox Faith. In addition, a General Council may share in his office when their decrees are approved by Peter. A decentralised Church is one detached from the Apostolic Faith.

Reflection on God's Mercy

The twin faults of presuming on God's mercy and despairing of it can be repaired by fruitful meditation on a crucifix.

Reflection on the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ

In His wounds, we find our refuge, in His blood, our life, in His cross, the trophy of our victory.
