  • Friday of the Fifth Week of Lent
    Reading 1 Jer 20:10-13 I hear the whisperings of many: “Terror on every side! Denounce! let us denounce him!” All those who were my friends are on the watch for any misstep of mine. “Perhaps he will be trapped; then we can prevail, and take our vengeance on him.” But the LORD is with me, […]

  • Podcast Ep. 6: The Power of the Holy Rosary with Fr. Lawrence Lew
    In this episode, I speak with Fr. Lawrence Lew, OP, promoter general of the Holy Rosary for the Dominican Order. Fr. Lew is a convert to the Catholic faith, and one time he was skeptical of all things Marian. Now, he travels the world preaching and teaching others to love the Blessed Mother and to […]
  • The Annunciation: When Freedom and Love Were One
    Excerpt from Archbishop Fulton Sheen’s book, The World’s First Love.  The modern age, which gives primacy to sex, justifies promiscuity and divorce on the grounds that love is by its nature free—which, indeed, it is. All love is free love, in a certain sense. To be devoid of love is of the essence of hell. […]
  • INTERVIEW: A Bishop Speaks on Coronavirus and Church Closures

  • Overcoming temptations with Christ
    The temptations of Our Lord by the devil in the wilderness are contemptible. The devil fails to understand who Christ is, and appeals to greed and pride. It is ludicrous for the devil to ask Our Lord to worship him, because Our Lord is truly God. It is stupid to offer Christ all the kingdoms […]
  • Bournemouth Oratory Appeal
    Over the past year, during the time that I have been recovering from illness, the Bournemouth Oratory-in-Formation has generously welcomed me to celebrate Mass in the beautiful Church of the Sacred Heart every day, and have become good friends in what is sometimes an isolated existence while I wait for accommodation in my own Archdiocese.

  • Our Lady Immaculate, our model for preparing to celebrate the birth of Christ.
    Listening with respect to the message of the angel, and prudently questioning him on how it was possible for her to be the Mother of Christ, Our Lady gave her immediate, willing and whole-hearted consent. From then on, her prayerful expectation of the birth of Christ is a model for us of the devout attitude […]

  • Cardinal Biffi on the Antichrist
    ",,,,  the Antichrist presents himself as a pacifist, ecologist and ecumenist. He ... seeks the consensus of all the Christian confessions, conceding something to each one.""The crowds follow him, except for tiny groups of Catholics, Orthodox and Protestants. Chased by the Antichrist, they tell him, 'You have given us everything except for the one thing […]
  • Prayer and Reality
     "It is not the healthy who need a physician but the sick"Jesus is supposed to be our Saviour but most of us think we are just fine and we don't need Salvation or a Saviour, in fact the idea of Salvation especially for modern Western Christians is incomprehensible nonsense. We think of ourselves as capable […]
  • Fasting and Reality
    Let's be realistic about fasting, it makes you tetchy, even murderous!Jesus was "driven" into desert to face hunger and temptation not for an intimate prayerful experience. if anything fasting makes the mental effort of prayer much more difficult.I asked a wise old monk why Recreation was reduced to just half an hour during Lent in […]
