Praying in England: Breaking the Law From the Inside Out

2022-12-22T21:32:17-04:00December 22nd, 2022|Categories: Blog|

Anybody who has worked in Middle School will understand the human gift of subverting the law from the inside out. So, for example, the dress code says boys will wear neckties on dress day. The fellas all turn up in the most garish, ugly, unfashionable ties from the Goodwill. So the authorities say only school uniform [...]

To Obey or Not to Obey…That is the Question

2022-12-22T14:18:57-04:00December 22nd, 2022|Categories: Blog|

The case of Frank Pavone's dismissal from the clerical state due to alleged continued disobedience raises the serious question of obedience in the religious context. Frank met with Taylor Marshall here and discussed at length the history of his relationship with both the Vatican and his own bishop. Of course it is complicated and of course [...]

Mary Traveled to the Hill Country…

2022-12-21T11:07:19-04:00December 21st, 2022|Categories: Blog|

Today's readings focus on the mystery of the visitation: Mary set out in those days and traveled to the hill country in haste to a town of Judah, where she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. When we read St Luke's infancy narrative, and know something of the geography and history we are immediately [...]

More Thoughts on Father Pavone

2022-12-20T18:41:16-04:00December 20th, 2022|Categories: Blog|

Catholics are understandably bewildered, angry and ashamed of the Vatican's treatment of Father Frank Pavone. For many, Father Pavone is a pro-life Catholic hero. They don't know about his arguments with his bishop and they don't follow him and his social media closely. All they can see is that the Vatican has cancelled a faithful, outspoken [...]

Mr Frank Pavone?

2022-12-18T12:37:04-04:00December 18th, 2022|Categories: Blog|

In the Vatican's announcement of Father Frank Pavone's laicization it was notable that they referred to him as "Mr Pavone". For most of us (and apparently for Father Pavone too) the news of his being ejected from the clerical state came as a surprise. I have not followed Fr Pavone's mission very closely over the years.

Did you think the trans-sexual craze was the final endpoint of the sexual revolution? Take a deep breath and buckle your seat belts. The roller coaster isn't finished yet. I predict that within the next decade or so we will witness the rise of therian therapy. What is a therian? Put simply and bluntly, it is [...]

Mary, Jerusalem and the Immaculate Conception

2022-12-08T12:51:18-04:00December 8th, 2022|Categories: Blog|

Ancient tradition assigns the birthplace of Mary to Jerusalem, and if you visit the city today you can pray at the ancient church of St Anne--one of the most beautiful churches in the Old City. The present church was built by Crusaders in the twelfth century on the site which tradition held was the house of [...]
