February Editorial  RETREAT TO RECHARGE!

Amid the Endtime Insanity, the 17th of January came as both a blessed relief and a further opportunity to reflect on Father Crane's familiar refrain of monastic retreat. Rather than descend to the worldly sewer of current Curial antics and offerings, I paused awhile to ponder the saint of the day, whose hermitic withdrawal providentially prepared him to combat the madness of his own tumultuous epoch. The outset of Lent is an appropriate time for us all to draw inspiration from this life of self-sacrifice that yielded such joyful, robust defence of the Faith.


Like the poor, the feminists are always with us: forever pushing gender as a social construct. Although they failed to bully the Church into presenting Christ the High Priest as a woman, their persistent hectoring paved the way for a feminist pontiff who undermines the male priesthood by washing female feet on Holy Thursday. Buoyed by such incremental rewards, they pursue their Daliesque mission to reinvent reality with Marxist fervour.


The intellectual dereliction/betrayal of our spiritual Fathers in the Faith was laid bare twenty-five years ago, in the commentaries on the “Revised Draft” of the Catholic Catechism by the late Father John Hardon; a Jesuit renowned and revered for his learning and sanctity. Offered to his friend and collaborator, Dr Robert Hickson, with the proviso that it not be published during his lifetime, it is reproduced here for the first time, both for the historic record and its educational value.


A new website with the full texts of the Clementina Vulgata, the Douay-Rheims Bible and the Knox Bible. Compare the translations side by side or view each Bible independently.

Also included are all notes by Bishop Challoner in the Douay Rheims version and all notes by Msgr. Ronald Knox in the Knox Bible.

The website has a very clean and intuitive design and is very easy to navigate. It is a handy tool for anybody who needs to quickly refer to the Bible or compare its traditional Latin and English translations.



Heavenly Father, we ask Thy blessing on our efforts. Show us the way to spread the Truth of the Catholic faith in the midst of error and infidelity. Fill our hearts with authentic love for our priests, bishops, pope and all the clergy, a love that moves us to unceasing prayer for their souls and to constant exhortation to faithfully fulfill their sacred task of preaching the whole truth of the Catholic faith without compromise. Grant us wisdom in our deliberations, courage in exposing error and corruption, and humility and charity in all the things we do. Bless our Holy Father with the wisdom and holiness to discern and carry out Thy Will, and the loyalty and fidelity of bishops, priests and all Religious in helping him carry out this task. May Thy will be done in all things.

We ask this through the intercession of our Holy Mother Mary.
