VII. The Seal of the Confessional

VIII. Are Good & Evil No More Than Dictates of the Divine Whimsy?

This is a commentary on two crucial aspects of a recent paper by John R T Lamont, Tyranny and sexual abuse in the Catholic Church: a Jesuit Tragedy, namely, the right understanding of the powers of intellect and will, and of the sources of good and evil.† more

XV. Paul VI of Most Infelicitous Memory...

Giovanni-Batista Montini, who became Pope Paul VI, had a history of turpitude of behaviour which ought, if Catholic principle had ruled the business of canonisation after 1983, have precluded any prospect of him ever being raised to the Church's altars.† more

XVI. The Problem with Canonisations since Vatican II

A matter of grave concern to orthodox Catholics is the cavalier manner in which candidates have been promoted to the ranks of the blessed or of the saints since the reign of Pope John Paul II.† In fact the problem first arose during the reign of his predecessor, Paul VI, and its fons et origo is the ersatz Council that Pope endorsed, Vatican II.† Here we explore the inevitable consequences of the adoption by popes and bishops of false philosophy, then labouring to accommodate the Church's teaching to that philosophy.† more

XVII. Lent & the Sexually Perverted

Lent in the year of Our Lord 2023 is especially important as Catholic mark the slide from the natural, and Catholic, principle thas has occurred over the last seventy years.† more

XVIII. Denigration of the Limbus Puerorum

The Limbo of children, the place of children who die unbaptised, has been part of the Church's theological tradition since before the time of St Augustine, the severity of whose views, and those of other theologians on the topic, was ameliorated somewhat by Pope Innocent III in 1206.† This teaching had been maintained in the Church for some 750 years until theologians who had fallen under the influence of Vatican II sought to amend it.† There is no reason why it should be altered, no reason why conjecture over what Almighty God may do in His absolute power should be given theological authority.† more
