Every time I come across articles about happenings in England I cringe with embarrassment with my birth country's decline, then I thank God that I emigrated in the '60's to Australia, and though it appears my adopted country may well travel down the same path as England, I will see my days out in a rural town where the impact of "Big government" decisions is minimal.
Cardinal Hummes. Are kidding me! Really? !! Vatican 2 advances. What planet are you from??? Seriously, by what yardstick are you using to determine advances since Vatican 2? Increase in Baptisms, Marriages, Vocations to the Priesthood, Converts, Mass attendance perhaps??? Please do tell us little faithful, what fruits have matured from the compost of Vatican Council 2.???? You surely are deluded … More

Why is it nearly always the Germans that are the cause of dissent whether it be in politics or the church? Just think of Hitler, Marx and Luther for starters.
I understand the rationale behind the T-shirt slogan however, it seems to me that pope francis [lower casing intentional] is only the "evolution" of Vatican 2. All the Popes, from John XX111 down to our current poor excuse for a pope, have in their turn, intentionally, or otherwise, undermined the faith . All five - I have omitted Pope John Paul 1 for obvious reasons - are, by degree , … More
Unfortunately many have been taken in- including the majority of SSPX - by this highly unlikely apparition. What is not known by most devotees, or if they do know they choose to ignore, is [a] The Bishop who "recognised" the alleged apparitions did so against the ruling of his own committee of investigation. [b] The "apparition nun" was a recent convert at the time of the "apparition" and was … More
We should not be too quick to laud the "achievement" of this dear old evangelist. She is after all, a protestant, and the devil would be more than happy to keep "millions" from hearing the "fullness of truth" which is only to be found in the Catholic Church.

This pro-[ no pun intended]-gay priest, and all who support or engage in such behavior, sorely need Divine intervention if their souls are to avoid the ultimate destination of damnation. However God's help, as with all sinners, can only come about starting with the sinners acknowledgement of his/her sin. Unfortunately, many of the Catholic hierarchy have bought into the notion that one is born a … More
Piotr2000 + Your list of apparitions sites is fine up to Fatima. From that point on your are less discerning, in fact all of the remaining sites, Medjugorie, Akita, Nai etc are at best questionable as to their veracity, and at worse, downright false. Hamish Fraser, convert, writer, catholic apologist, and one of the laypersons to be invited to attend the total proceedings and drama of Vatican 2, … More
For a Pope who constantly derides tradition, particularly the Extraordinary form of the Mass, I suggest his position to be, at the least, one of contradiction, given he readily uses latin when presenting his official epistles or other meaningless utterances.
Why accept the title protestant! if you'r not a heretic ? Clearly rational and logical thought remains a mystery to non catholics. Still, you are in good company with our present Pope.
Unfortunately, Pope Francis is typical Jesuit trained political operative, as a consequence, he is imbued with Marxist ideology, far more than Christology. Having personally witnessed a number of Jesuit priests operating on assigned social projects, I can attest to the losing of faith of ninety percent of the group I got to know, including its leader, ending in their laicization from their … More
