50 Years After Vatican II, Are You Still Catholic? (Take the Quiz)
Look around at our Catholic world. Do you ever wonder why Tradition isn’t taking hold? Why the power and beauty of the Mass of the Ages is not enflaming hearts everywhere? Why don’t people speak the language of Faith? Have you noticed that, even among those holding fast to Sacred Tradition, there is a reluctance to talk like a Catholic? Have you even noticed a certain superficiality in matters of religion? Have you wondered why?…To Read the Full Story, SUBSCRIBE
I’m Afraid of Martyrdom
St. Perpetua guides the executioner's sword
We’re given opportunities every day. Not of martyrdom by wild beasts, at least not most of us in the 1st world, but by the thousand daily opportunities for little, hidden martyrdoms that come along with ordinary life. We’re given this failure, this weakness, this mistake, this moment of decision right here and now, to turn to Christ, in our daily desperation... Read the article online HERE

St. John of Capistrano …Catholic Heroes…
Before there was the uprising in the Vendee, there was the Siege of Belgrade; an invasion by 160,000 Ottoman Turks against 4,000 Christian knights… and 30,000 peasants and farmers armed only with the tools of their trade. They burst into battle behind the fiery old monk from Capistrano, who wielded only a crucifix, who cried “Jesus” with every step, and who flew at the fearsome janissaries with supernatural courage and conviction. They answered his ardent call to crusade. They saved Hungary for Christendom.
Who was the monk? …To read the story, SUBSCRIBE

REFORMATIONS by Carlos Eire
To set the stage for the rest of the book, Eire begins in his Preface to describe pre-Luther Europe, often called “medieval,” or “the Age of Faith,” although Eire reminds his readers, “that is not to say that Europeans were necessarily pious.” In these introductory pages, he takes the reader on a guided tour, explaining the factors and personalities which led to the culmination at Wittenberg Cathedral in October, 1517. Along the way, he poses a fundamental question of a historian: “Should so much change be attached to one person and one event?” …To Read the Article, SUBSCRIBE

Pioneers of the Underground Church in China
“My Dear Father and Mother, I am just after finishing my retreat at Hanyang and I got safely back to this diocese up here. I think it is more correct to call it a diocese than a parish. I said safely, and lest a little account of my adventures which you will see in the Far East probably later on might frighten you, I shall tell you all.
