Article 110 – Evangelise the Culture

We Are Losing The Culture War!
“And the Lord said: Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips glorify me, but their heart is far from me, and they have feared me with the commandment and doctrines of men:

Therefore behold I will proceed to cause an admiration in this people, by a great and wonderful miracle: for wisdom shall perish from their wise men, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.” (Isaiah 29:13-14)

Article 109 – Marriage is from God

posted in: General | 0

No Confusion in the Catholic Church
As I begin this article I have just come from Northern Ireland where I hosted two talks promoting The Lumen Fidei Institute. One in Omagh and the other in Derry. The talks were well attended, and we had a particularly lively question and answer session in Omagh. As I am fond of repeating, there is no confusion in the Catholic Church because her teachings are crystal clear, but there are many confused Catholics on account of the false prophets and false teachers who seek to lead many astray. Christ Himself warned us about these false prophets and teachers in St Matthew’s Gospel chapter 24.… Read the rest

Article 108 – Marriage Casti Connubii

Understanding Casti Connubii
One cannot understand the encyclical ‘Casti Connubii’, which reaffirms the Catholic Church’s constant teaching against contraception, unless one first understands why ‘Casti Connubii’ was written. In order to understand this, we must look to the years 1920 and 1930 and we must look to the Lambeth Conference of the Anglican church in those years. The Lambeth conference is an international gathering of protestant Anglican bishops and usually meets about every ten years to discuss matters pertaining to that faith.

Resolution number 68 of the Lambeth Conference of 1920 reads as follows.

“We utter an emphatic warning against the use of unnatural means for the avoidance of conception, together with the grave dangers – physical, moral, and religious – thereby incurred, and against the evils with which the extension of such use threatens the race.… Read the rest

Article 107 – Marriage v Situation Ethics

Irish Bishops are Harming Marriage
The Irish Bishops are doing serious harm to Catholic marriage and family life with their ‘Amoris’ programme which is being promoted to every parish in Ireland. The key to understanding why this is, comes at the beginning of the programme where it states.

“The programme takes, as its starting point, people’s experience of love and their hopes and fears with regard to marriage and family”

Situational Ethics
This is the basis for what is called ‘situation’ or ‘situational ethics’. This theory of ethics rejects absolute moral norms and says that decisions must be based within the context of the entire situation to maximise harmony and reduce discord rather than being based on the absolute moral norms. … Read the rest

Article 106 – Putting God First

The Greatest Commandment
And one of them, a doctor of the law, asking him, tempting him: Master, which is the greatest commandment in the law? Jesus said to him: Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. And the second is like to this: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments dependeth the whole law and the prophets.” (Matthew 22:35-40)

Some time ago, I came across an analogy while I was doing a bit of research on the American Catholic author, Phil Lawlor.… Read the rest

Article 105 – I Am The Lord Your God

A Dark and Evil Day
Although most people are blissfully unaware of it, the week of Friday 19th January 2018, was one of the darkest and most evil weeks in the history of the Irish nation. Grown men and women, many of them parents of children, all of them elected representatives, stood up in the Irish parliament chamber one after the other, to outline the conditions under which they believed that certain human beings, members of our nation, should be allowed to be put to death.

Article 104 – Man as god

The Majesty of God
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him: and without him was made nothing that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.” (John 1:1-5)

The opening sentences of St John’s Gospel, beautifully and simply reflect the glory and the majesty of God. God is eternal, God created everything, and there is nothing that exists that does not owe its existence to God and that does not depend on God for its continued existence.… Read the rest

Article 103 – To The Battlefield

This Bishop is in Denial
This week, I would like to thank those of you who have written to Bishop Raymond Browne, the Bishop of Kerry, regarding the promotion of the LGBT agenda to the youth of his diocese. I would also like to encourage more of you to get in contact with him. Bishop Browne has responded by saying;

“Be assured that the diocese and I uphold fully the Church’s teaching on sexuality. We seek as best we can to share that teaching in the secular world that is both urban and rural Ireland today.”
