THIS morning, before rising from bed, the Lord put the Novena of Abandonment on my heart again. Did you know that Jesus said, “There is no novena more effective than this”?  I believe it. Through this special prayer, the Lord brought so much-needed healing in my marriage and my life, and continues to do so. Continue reading

THERE is something happening that we have to pay attention to, something the Lord is doing, or one could say, allowing. And that is the stripping of His Bride, Mother Church, of her worldly and stained garments, until she stands naked before Him.Continue reading

An Unapologetic Apocalyptic View

 

…there is none more blind than he who does not want to see,
and despite the signs of the times foretold,
even those who have faith
refuse to look at what is happening. 
Our Lady to Gisella Cardia, October 26th, 2021 

 

I AM supposed to be embarrassed by this article’s title — ashamed to utter the phrase “end times” or quote the Book of Revelation much less dare to mention Marian apparitions. Such antiquities supposedly belong in the dust bin of medieval superstitions alongside archaic beliefs in “private revelation”, “prophecy” and those ignominious expressions of “the mark of the beast” or “Antichrist.” Yes, better to leave them to that garish era when Catholic churches billowed with incense as they churned out saints, priests evangelized pagans, and commoners actually believed that faith could drive away plagues and demons. In those days, statues and icons not only adorned churches but public buildings and homes. Imagine that. The “dark ages” — enlightened atheists call them.Continue reading

On the Mass Going Forward

 

…each particular Church must be in accord with the universal Church
not only regarding the doctrine of the faith and sacramental signs,
but also as to the usages universally received from apostolic and unbroken tradition. 
These are to be observed not only so that errors may be avoided,
but also that the faith may be handed on in its integrity,
since the Church’s rule of prayer (lex orandi) corresponds
to her rule of faith (lex credendi).
—General Instruction of the Roman Missal, 3rd ed., 2002, 397

 

IT might seem odd that I am writing about the unfolding crisis over the Latin Mass. The reason is that I have never attended a regular Tridentine liturgy in my life.[1]I did attend a Tridentine rite wedding, but the priest didn’t seem to know what he was doing and the whole liturgy was scattered and odd. But that’s exactly why I am a neutral observer with hopefully something helpful to add to the conversation…Continue reading

Protecting Your Holy Innocents

SOMETHING has gone terribly wrong when the very inventor of a technology, now in world-wide distribution, is calling for its immediate halt. In this sobering webcast, Mark Mallett and Christine Watkins share why doctors and scientists are warning, based on the newest data and studies, that injecting babies and children with an experimental gene therapy could leave them with severe disease in years to come… It amounts to one of the most crucial warnings we’ve given this year. The parallel to Herod’s attack on the Holy Innocents during this Christmas season is unmistakable. Continue reading

New Novel Release! The Blood

 

PRINT version of the sequel The Blood is now available!

Since the release of my daughter Denise’s first novel The Tree some seven years ago — a book that garnered rave reviews and the efforts by some to have it made into a movie — we have awaited the sequel. And it’s finally here. The Blood continues the story in a mythical realm with Denise’s incredible word-smithing to shape realistic characters, craft incredible imagery, and make the story linger long after you’ve put the book down. So many themes in The Blood speak profoundly to our times. I couldn’t be more proud as her father… and delighted as a reader. But don’t take my word for it: read the reviews below!Continue reading
