Pope Francis's recent Motu Proprio, Traditionis Custodes, has been seen as many things.  Certainly it has been seen as a major and sad setback for traditional Catholicism and the celebration of the Old Mass.  How is it playing out in Australia?  Will the Bishops play ball?  Republished from The Remnant.

Losing Our Religion

Will Covid kill the Church?  It is a question that demands our attention.

Louise Milligan, we know, is a slayer of Catholic Cardinals.  Or seeks to be.  She is also a conspiracy theorist.  An even-handed investigative journalist, she ain't.  The rabbit holes she chooses to go down are highly selective.

The Gutter Press

Not all those Catholic priests accused of historical sexual misconduct have the good fortune to have their reputations restored through the Australian legal system, as Cardinal Pell, mercifully and eventually, did.  The case of Fr John Fleming has yet to be resolved in his favour, but the fight goes on.  As does the disgraceful abuse of this good and holy priest, by those who originally nailed him to his cross.

The #MeToo movement has claimed some high profile scalps.  I believe you - always - they say.  Some of the accused are innocent, and the legal battles continue.  Law Professor Gabriel Moens has explored the implications.  Originally published at The Epoch Times.

The Year That Was

2020 was the very worst of times.  A year not to savour but to regret.  What was thought inconceivable a mere twelve months ago is now real.  It can never be inconceivable again.  Barring a miracle or concerted political action by those who resent our loss of freedom, a dystopian future surely awaits us all.

The Persecution of George Pell

The editor of Quadrant magazine, Keith Windschuttle, as written a cracker of a book on the George Pell case.  It is much needed, in order to provide some balance in the face of the various tirades previously published by sworn enemies of Cardinal Pell's.  It should be read both by those who already know the case well, and by those who do not.

When Judges Get It Wrong - the Case of John Fleming

It is not only juries that sometimes get things wrong, especially in cases of alleged historical sex abuse.  Judges get it wrong, too.  Just look at the South Australian case of Catholic priest Fr John Fleming.  This case amply demonstrates the need for judicial system reform.

Many Catholics (and High Church Anglicans) are beyond dismayed at the vandalising of their liturgies by modernist and post-modernist clergy who refuse simply to "say the black and do the red".  It is time that rock-star pastors realised the damage they have done to sacred traditions and to the beauty of God-shaped and God-oriented worship, and abandoned their ego-driven ways.

Leo the Great

There are Two Leos the Great.  One was a famous pope.  The other was my father.
