Because the Vatican has the Coolest Archive On the Planet

But you knew that already, right?

A preview of the official video for the exhibition-event Lux in Arcana — The Vatican Secret Archives reveals itself. [Read more...]

Another $1,000 Donation Received for “All That Remains”, And North Korea Is Giving Up Her NUKES?

Both events happened yesterday. Are they related? Honestly, I have no idea. But in the midst of Presidential Campaign sabre rattling fervor directed towards the sovereign state of Iran, I was heartened to learn that the less sexy alternative, diplomacy, made some serious headway in North Korea.

An “All That Remains” Praise Report

CGI drawing of the Urakami Cathedral

Fresh off spending an evening at the Oscars with family and long-distance friends (thanks to the wonders of television and Facebook), I just happened to notice where your favorite film producers’ (ahem, that’s me, in case you’ve forgotten) fund-raising kitty for the film All That Remains is sitting. It being Lent, the season for almsgiving mind you, a kind soul has taken the opportunity to show the project some mercy in the form of a $2,000 donation. Anonymously. [Read more...]

Back in Port, On Shore Leave, Gone Readin’ and Prayin’

This is your Captain speaking. I have to inform you that the cruise we’ve been on since October has come to a close. All ammunition, food and water was expended, and we made it back to port just in time for a wee bout of shore leave. [Read more...]

Why We Should Follow Our Bishops Now And Lead Them Too

But we also have to lead them by example. Sheep leading the shepherds? Bear with me a minute.

The other day, I wrote a post on why we should fight the HHS Mandate. Today, I return to that theme, and expand upon it while clearly sharing the not so earth shattering information that many Catholics in the pews do not care one iota for what the Bishops say about contraception, much less the HHS Mandate.

The Women That Testified to Congress that Planned Parenthood Missed?

They’re right here, folks. Did you have any friends, relatives, or acquaintances plaster the photograph from Planned Parenthood claiming no women testified to Congress on the HHS Mandate on their Facebook walls? Or how about Planned Parenthood’s President Cecile Richards’ statement chastising Congress for not allowing “a single woman” to testify? I know I did.

But the truth is, a picture isn’t always worth a thousand words. Because the fact that several women did testify to Congressman Issa’s panel was ignored, see, because they are Pro-Life. Lifesite News has the scoop, [Read more...]

Why We Must Fight For Our Right of Religious Freedom UPDATED

Should Catholics fight the HHS Mandate, and the other moves by the Administration that seek to remove Catholics from the public square? Absolutely. Should we do so only because this issue is a matter of principle? Well, not just for any principles, but for first principles. For God-given principles, and God-given freedoms. [Read more...]

Praying the Novena with the Dominican Sisters of Nashville

Nothing tells your children that you believe in the power of prayer more than praying the rosary with them. And nothing tells them how powerful you think prayer is than praying a novena and the rosary every evening after dinner. [Read more...]

The HHS Mandate and the Lord of the Rings

I know. This is a weird title for a post. What does the Lord of the Rings trilogy have to do with the HHS Mandate? Maybe nothing, or maybe everything. Bear with me for a moment and I’ll try to explain.

A few months back, I wrote a little post that I titled Because All of the Big Questions Have Been Answered. Therein, I stated simply that “what is left to do, and one which takes a lifetime to perfect, is the implementation of the answers.” [Read more...]

Mail Call! Items From My “In” Basket For Your Consideration

Occasionally, folks send me e-mails with tidbits and requests that I share with readers. It’s all part of following the Welborn Protocol, so here are a couple from today.

First up, several regarding the follow-on petition that is climbing the altimeter over at the White House. I mentioned it the other day, and the first of these notes is from yesterday evening. The link for this petition is right over there. ==>> [Read more...]
