Pope Leo XIII

I. Leo XIII & the 100 years

2003 marked the 100th anniversary of the death of Gioacchino Pecci, Pope Leo XIII.  He came to the papal throne on 20th February 1878, a few days short of his 68th birthday, and died on 20th July 1903 at the age of 93. more

II. Leo XIII on Human Liberty & Religion

We would do well to consider carefully the teaching of this great Pope on human liberty and the part it plays in religion.  What he has to say contrasts strongly with current views. more

III. Leo XIII & Freemasonry

There are three principal means the devil uses to assault God's Holy Church, Masonry, Marxism and Modernism. These three evils cooperate inter se to the end, were it possible, of the destruction of that one thing in this world which is indestructible, because it is not human, but Divine. The devil will not succeed but the harm he has wrought, and will wreak, amongst the members of the Church by these means is enormous. This paper deals with the first and, in our view, the worst of them, Freemasonry. It is the first of a number of papers we hope to publish on the topic. more

IV. Another Leo XIII

It can only be a matter of time before Almighty God endows His Church with another pope of the calibre of Leo XIII.  more

VI. 99 Years Ago—132 Years Ago

Today is the Memorial of Our Lady of Fatima and marks the final appearance of the Blessed Virgin to the three children at Fatima, Portugal, 99 years ago, when she warned of the evils that would flow if mankind did not abandon its evil ways.  more
