That Hideous Strength C. S. Lewis

This third part of C. S. Lewis’ Space Trilogy starts exceedingly slow – a fact which the author admits in the preface. Fortunately, I did not give up after I read about 100 pages the story was still boring. The second half of the book responds well to the large build-up and character development ofContinue reading “That Hideous Strength C. S. Lewis”

Did the Liturgical Reforms of Vatican II go Further Than Sacrosanctum Concilium Called For?

It is often argued in Vatican II’s favour that the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy did not envision the depth and level of changes that ended up being the result of the liturgical reforms it called for which happened subsequent to the Council. Is this true? It is often pointed out that Sacrosanctum Concilium calledContinue reading “Did the Liturgical Reforms of Vatican II go Further Than Sacrosanctum Concilium Called For?”

Book Review: In The Eye of the Catholic Storm – The Church Since Vatican II

I was disappointed with In the Eye of the Catholic Storm: The Church Since Vatican II by Mary Jo Leddy, Bishop Remi de Roo and Douglas Roche. This book presents a series of conversation between the authors in 1991 about topics facing the modern Church especially in light of Vatican II. Unfortunately, the authors seemContinue reading “Book Review: In The Eye of the Catholic Storm – The Church Since Vatican II”

A Response to the Ottaviani Intervention: Part 1 of 2

Part 2 will be coming soon. This is not a complete disagreement with the contents of the Ottaviani Intervention. I can see how someone could view certain omissions in content and additions in content to the Novus Ordo Missae (NO) in the way that they do. The Ottaviani Intervention was a short critical study ofContinue reading “A Response to the Ottaviani Intervention: Part 1 of 2”

Government Alien Grooming and Media Methods

Just a catch up moment on some of my previous posts about UFO’s in the last few months (Aliens are Demons). I claimed, the government(s) are going to introduce aliens to the populations. These aliens are going to “solve” climate change but are in reality demons and extremely evil spiritual beings. Latter the government willContinue reading “Government Alien Grooming and Media Methods”

Book Review: A Christian Perspective on Pain and Suffering – With the Dawn Rejoicing

I had recently reviewed Rediscovering the Art of Dying by Sister Nuala Kenny (Linked Here), and had mixed reviews about the book. Thus, I read some other books on the Christian understanding of pain and suffering. One of those books was A Christian Perspective on Pain and Suffering – With The Dawn Rejoicing by MelannieContinue reading “Book Review: A Christian Perspective on Pain and Suffering – With the Dawn Rejoicing”

The Name of God is Mercy: Pope Francis

The Name of God is Mercy A Conversation with Andrea Tornielli, is a delightful book. It is the contents of a series of interviews of Pope Francis by Andrea Tornielli on Mercy and the Year of Mercy earlier in Pope Francis’ pontificate. Pope Francis tells several stories which place emphasis on the fact that GodContinue reading “The Name of God is Mercy: Pope Francis”

How Hard is it to Find a Poorly Said or Scandalous Novus Ordo?

In Ontario, Canada I would say it is extremely hard to find a scandalous or poorly said Novus Ordo Sunday Liturgy. As a Canadian living in Ontario I find it extremely odd how many good standing Catholics in the States or Traditionalists claim that there are scandalous Novus Ordo liturgies around them. To be honest,Continue reading “How Hard is it to Find a Poorly Said or Scandalous Novus Ordo?”

Jean Vanier: Drawn Into the Mystery of Jesus Through the Gospel of John -False Mystery Comments

I picked this one up at the local Salvation Army thrift shop for a buck fifty. I could not get past a few chapters. Jean Vanier is well know for his great work founding L’Arche communities across the globe and a series of spiritual books. He is also posthumously also know for his sexual abuseContinue reading “Jean Vanier: Drawn Into the Mystery of Jesus Through the Gospel of John -False Mystery Comments”
