Pensar Fátima Congress: Paper Published

Hi Everyone!

In June of 2017, the Santuário de Fátima held its centenary Congress “Pensar Fátima.” I was in attendance and delivered a paper.

Back in early 2019, that paper was selected to be included in the official Acta of the Congress. I am happy to report that those Acts have now been published in two volumes (here and here).

My paper can be found in Volume One. Here are some images:

This news is exciting and I am truly honored to have my paper selected for publication. I would like to thank the Santuário de Fátima for its kindness and generosity.

The Meaning of Catholic Podcast

Back in early May of this year, Timothy Flanders from The Meaning of Catholic contacted me. He was interested in having me on his YouTube channel to talk about all things Fátima. After some back and forth, I consented to the podcast.

The podcast was held on Saturday, June 19 and entitled Disputed Questions on Fatima with Kevin Symonds:

I would like to be clear with respect to the question of the consecration. This area is not something that I have studied at great length. In the future, I will not be addressing this matter in interviews/podcasts.

Lastly, there was some editing towards the end, hence why the official date on YouTube says “June 21.”

“On the Crisis in the Catholic Church”

Hi Everyone!

Michael Lofton from Reason & Theology had asked to do a podcast with me on the subject of the crisis in the Catholic Church. That podcast took place this past Monday:

Discussing this subject in the public forum is always rather difficult for me. I do hope, however, that you enjoy the discussion.

I have created some highlight videos from this interview:

Highlight 1: On bashing the Holy Father (Taylor Marshall)?

Highlight 2: On Fr. James Martin

Highlight 3: Fátima and the Passion of the Church

I don’t normally care to “throw shade” at someone. I did it here with Taylor Marshall in order to make a point. I suspect that his giving a copy of Infiltration to Pope Francis was little more than a PR-stunt. As such, it was utterly shameful and disgraceful. This is, of course, separate (albeit related) to his financing of the stunt with Pachamama. Utter insanity.

I hope you enjoy the podcast.

New Image of Sr. Lúcia: Later Apparitions

Hello Everyone!

I am happy to announce that the Carmel of Coimbra has unveiled a new image of Sr. Lúcia.

In their famous biography A Pathway Under the Gaze of Mary, the Carmelites of Coimbra revealed details of later apparitions of Our Lady to Sr. Lúcia in her cell of the Carmel. In fact, I’ll be talking about one of them in my later webinars!

Here is a video that is available through the Memorial Irmã Lúcia page on Facebook.

Some images are available on Facebook as well.

The artist is Francisco Correia de Almeida and he is on Facebook.
