Communism A Fact Today Towards the end of the nineteenth century a so-called "novel" appeared which had an amazing effect at the time. It was written by the American, Bellamy, and bore the title: A.D. 2000 — A Retrospect. The story it tells is decidedly weak and the love episode a complete...

The Traditional Latin Mass (also known as the Tridentine Rite or the Mass of St. Pius V) is the Sacrifice of Calvary renewed in an unbloody manner upon the altar. This is a concise definition applicable to every Catholic Mass, including the different Rites proper to certain Religious Orders such...
The Rules for the Discernment of Spirits reveal St. Ignatius as a diagnostician of the spiritual life, whose principles of analysis were born of the interior struggle he experienced at Loyola, which ended in his conversion and began his dedication to the service of God. They were further...

As I sit here, fingers poised above the typewriter, wondering how to begin this new booklet, my mind goes back to a little conversation that took place here in this very room a few years ago. Just then the war was at its bitterest and most horrible. Submarines, in particular, had made the seas...

Introductory There are many reasons why we should try to understand and practise devotion to the Seared Heart of Jesus. It is one of the most widespread of the devotions of a Church world-wide, in its extension. There is hardly a Catholic to whom the words "Sacred Heart," are not full of...

I have always felt that, difficult and fragmentary as are the indications that remain to us in the ruined catacombs which were the burial-places and at times the meeting places of the early Roman Church, those indications ought to throw considerable light, if they could be carefully studied...

The "days are evil"; both minds and hearts are sorely troubled. Wellnigh two thousand years of Christianity have come and gone, yet Christian nations cannot, or will not, settle their differences without war. Scarcely had the "rumours of war" got abroad before the terrible reality was upon us —...

"Gather up ... the cockle ... to burn." — Matthew 13:30 Nothing is more amazing, nothing is more incomprehensible, than the wickedness of sinners. They know, it is taught to them, and it has been implanted in them from their earliest youth, why they are created, why they are in this world: that...

July 7th, 2021 marks the fourteenth anniversary of Pope Benedict XVI’s Motu Proprio entitled Summorum Pontificum, which resulted in a great deal of growth in the traditional Catholic movement, and remains a thorn in the side of Francis/Bergoglio and his adherents who would be only too glad to...
The dealings of God with mankind throughout history are a divine romance of condescending love and infinite mercy. This truth is splendidly borne out by the doctrine of Perfect Contrition, if we consider it in its proper setting, namely, by recalling to mind what sin is, what makes its malice...

This booklet is concerned with the tragedy that has come upon more Catholics in this country than is generally realized. It is the tragedy of religious indifference; the tragedy of the merely nominal Catholic who has become the victim of the prevalent atmosphere of sheer secularism, who has...

An Embarrassing Request Quite recently an Australian priest received an embarrassing letter from a missionary in India. He had written to the Marianist College, Dayton, U.S.A., the letter stated, requesting information on devotion to Mary, Help of Christians. There the good Marianists had...
The following definition of Stigmatisation given by Fr. Pfulff, S.J., in Kirchenlexicon may be said to represent the mind of the Church and the sentiment of the faithful with regard to the stigmata: The external marks of the wounds of Christ are then only the material element of...

Silence, Solitude, and the Presence of God [Only the section on Silence is here presented] Cassian says: "The religious prays little who prays only when she is on her knees in the choir or in the cell." To fulfil the obligations of her state, a religious should keep her soul continually...

What is the cause of the dearth of vocations to the contemplative orders? Is it not largely that this life is not understood and not being understood cannot be appreciated and loved? How can a youthful, enthusiastic soul who feels within her the inspiration to give all to God, who is glowing...
