Michael J. Matt | Editor

Editor’s Note: This personal remembrance of a great man is something I wrote 10 years ago, days after the death of my friend, Michael Davies, on September 25, 2004. We’re posting it here, unedited from how it first appeared, so obviously some of the dates and chronology mentioned herein are dated by one decade. Younger readers may wonder about the title of this article. For over 30 years Michael Davies wrote a bi-weekly column for The Remnant called, simply, “A Letter from London.” May he rest in peace. MJM

Thirty-three years ago this past June, Michael Davies submitted his first article for publication in these columns. I was five years old at the time. I don’t remember when he wasn’t a vital part of The Remnant family.

For well over three decades his “Letter from London” came in month after month and year after year, keeping thousands of post-Vatican II Catholics informed and encouraged during three of the most turbulent decades in the history of the Church.

As for the heavy curtain of gloom and foreboding that hangs over the Church in our time, let us never fear nor lose courage.

Question: “ What   is the most important day in the history of the world?”

Christopher A. Ferrara THE Rise of Bergoglianism:  A Caution to the Reader: What follows is a very harsh assessment of the current pontificate. I felt compelled to write it, but no one is compelled to read it. I am nothing and nobody in the great scheme of things, although I am privileged to contribute to the record of a venerable traditional Catholic journal that will surely have its place in the history of these times. I have no illusions that my little lamentations will have any effect on the Pope, for whom I pray each day, or on events in the Church. But at least I, at least The Remnant, at least traditionalists in general will be able say to one day, concerning what was done to the Bride of Christ, “Not us. Not us.”

John Medaille It’s the End of the World as We Know It, and I Feel Fine It is not the ballot box that will change things. But growing your own food is a blow against globalized factory farms; educating your own children defeats the power of the state; making your own music and entertaining your neighbors defeats the whole wicked world.
