2020-12-03T13:50:41-04:00December 3rd, 2020|Categories: Blog|Tags: , , , , |

Have you ever noticed that modernist Biblical scholars don't believe in the infallibility of the Bible, but they do believe in the infallibility of their own theories? The Biblical critics love to get down and pick over the New Testament. They've made an industry of it. There's form criticism and source criticism and literary criticism and [...]

Sacred Heart of Jesus — Tough Love

It took me a while to appreciate the Sacred Heart of Jesus devotion. To tell the truth, as a convert, it all seemed kind of sappy, sentimental and well, French. All hearts and flowers and perfume--almost like a Valentine from Jesus. Yucch. But then I learned about St Margaret Mary Alacogue and realized that she (like [...]

Arians, Aliens and Body Snatchers

2015-11-05T06:48:58-04:00November 5th, 2015|Categories: Theology|Tags: , , |

Do you remember that creepy movie Invasion of the Body Snatchers? Some kind of alien bug invades earth and takes over people's bodies replacing them with soul-less replicas. The horrible thing about the film is that the aliens are not huge hybrid insectoid lobster monsters, but just as ordinary as the guy and girl next door. [...]

there is “no medium in true philosophy between atheism and Catholicism… a perfectly consistent mind, under those circumstances in which it finds itself here below must embrace either the one or the other.” - Bl.

The Puri-Fire

I was talking with a man I'll call Henry today who lost his wife just before Christmas. She was only in her early sixties and had premature dementia. It was a terrible disease. Horrible to see an intelligent, active, prayerful woman laid low, and terrible to see the suffering of her husband and family as they [...]

Idol Speculation

Toppling the Pagan Idols Did the pagans really worship idols? If so, what was going on? To be precise, they did not worship idols as such, but they worshipped the gods who they believed the idols represented. But it was more than that. They also believed that the idols became the channels for the [...]

It is so inspiring!". No. Never. Have you ever gone into a "worship space" like this and heard someone say how awed [...]

Anglicans Wonder Why No One Comes to Church on Sunday

2014-11-24T21:37:33-04:00November 24th, 2014|Categories: Anglican Matters|Tags: , , |

  An article in the Daily Telegraph ponders why the number of people attending parish churches in England continues to plummet. While attendance at cathedral worship is up, the number of worshippers in the local churches is in free fall. The Anglicans, of course, are not the only ones. All the churches in the Western developed [...]
