A reader pointed out that I haven’t put up the collection of archived articles since the beginning of April. This was supposed to be a regular feature–posting a collection of archived pieces about twice a month. Apologies dear readers! To be honest I’ve been caught up in other projects–not least of which has been the book launch and promotion of Immortal Combat and having to re-design parish ministry in the wake of the pandemic.

So here is a collection at last of four more articles from all the many I’ve written over the years. Nature’ Bonfire is chapter fourteen of my book The Quest for the Creed. I am posting this book chapter by chapter so readers will eventually have access to the whole book here at the website-blog. The other three articles are a piece on learning to love Baroque architecture, some thoughts about movies and mysticism and an apologetics piece on the papacy.

These articles are reserved for Donor Subscribers. Donor Subscribers help to keep the majority of content on the blog free for all and free of annoying third party advertising. As I often point out, the blog is free, but it is not free to produce. Donor Subscribers receive certain benefits outlined here, but they also help to pay the costs of hosting, web design, updates, promotion, software fees and the publishing arm of the blog as well as my sortie into YouTube which is just about to happen with my new channel, Myth, Monsters and the Mysteries. If you would like to learn more about the benefits of helping by being a Donor Subscriber go here.

Here are the four articles:

Nature’s Bonfire, World’s Wildfire – Chapter Fourteen of Quest for the Creed is about the phrase “I Believe in the Holy Spirit”

Going for Baroque – Learning to love the baroque churches of Rome…

Movies, Masks and Mysticism – Ancient art, modern movies and mystical connections

Assuming Infallibility – What is papal infallibility and why does it matter?
