Because Natural Law is Catholic

I’m going to have to borrow a line from U2‘s Bono and say, “Am I buggin’ you? I don’t mean to bug ya,” as the Edge’s guitar solo rises to a crescendo. I’m talking about my last few posts, which uncharacteristically have touched on politics and things political. [Read more...]

Out Of Our Heads, Looking For the Garden

Much like the world did thousands of years ago, mankind cries out for a savior. So far there is one candle lit on the Advent wreath, as we await our Redeemer. Wait a minute Frank, you say, I don’t believe in God. And yet you still yearn for something more than what you have experienced in this life so far, don’t you? [Read more...]

Because Barbarians Are Us

Perhaps you think that my saying we are barbarians is a little harsh. Maybe I’m going over the top, even though we as a nation lawfully sanction the killing our unborn babies. Surely it’s not for reasons such as this one that I deign to call us barbaric, despite the obvious, self-evident truth such actions contain. [Read more...]

Thoughts on How Christ Prayed Under Duress

Once when Jesus was praying in solitude…

Is it wrong for me to wonder to myself this question: What would Jesus pray? What would God, as the Son of Man, pray to God the Father?  I read a Psalm of David today that makes me believe a) perhaps this is how Our Lord prayed for strength while he was undergoing his trial, and b) David “saw” this and again prophesied events that have been fulfilled.

For The Road Of Joy

What follows is an excerpt from Kenelm Henry Digby’s Compitum: or, The Meeting of the Ways at the Catholic Church, published in 1869. Reading books like this is just another example of why I am Catholic. [Read more...]

The New Mass Translation? The Marines In WWII Had That.

Well, it’s pretty close, from what I can tell. And it makes a handy little pocket guide for the changes coming upon us when the New Translation kicks in this first Sunday of Advent. I didn’t have to invent the Flux Capacitor to find out about it either.

Caveat emptor: the language is more along the lines of what is found in the Douay-Rheims translation of the Bible. There are Thee’s, Thy’s, and Thou’s, rather than the more modern version that is on the handy cards you’ll probably be consulting in your parish pews. [Read more...]

Joan of Arc, Joan Jett and More

I skipped Music for Mondays yesterday. So in this holiday shortened week I’ve got some more Joan of Arc music for you, and more good girls we love. I shared the first part of this series last week. Truthfully, that is where most of the good stuff was. Today I’ve got a few more stragglers, and then I move on to other good girls that kick ass, like St. Joan. Huh? [Read more...]

Because Nice Girls Kill Vampires

Some folks wonder if we are Facebooking ourselves to death. I say no. The reason? Because unrelated Friend “A” posts a great photograph like the one you see above. Silly me shares it on my wall, and even over there in the ghost town of Google+. [Read more...]

Because Christ Came to Occupy and Reclaim the World

There was a brutal bear market in the Spring of the year 33 AD. Not in wheat or lamb futures, nor in cloth, or precious metals. This was a bear market of the human soul, and it was experienced acutely by the Disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ. [Read more...]

Major Oak is Headed to Nagasaki Tomorrow!

Ian Higgins writes from the studio,

As our Phase 2 campaign comes to an end we’re packing our bags and making last minute preparations for our trip to Japan. It’s going to be a very busy 10 days but we’re very excited at the thought of all the great footage we’ll come back with. [Read more...]
