Visions of Fatima

Over at Catholic Exchange there is a series of articles written by Dorothea and Wolfgang Koch about Fátima. They are focusing upon the artwork of the Dominican Friar Fr. Thomas McGlynn who sculpted the statue of Our Lady of Fátima that adorns the facade of the original Basilica in Fátima.

There is, however, a fact of Fr. McGlynn’s life that is not very well known.* When the Carmelites of Coimbra, Portugal published their biography of Sr. Lúcia, they revealed to the world a previously hidden fact.

Been Busy: Some Updates

Hi Everyone!

I have been a rather busy beaver lately. A couple of weeks ago, Inside the Vatican released a two-part interview with Fr. Charles T. Murr that was conducted by yours truly.

Part I

Part II

In this interview, we are introduced to the person of Mother Pascalina Lehnert through Fr. Murr, her godson. Additionally, Fr. Murr provides some very poignant information regarding the Archbishop Annibale Bugnini connection to Freemasonry about which I reported on last May. You don’t want to miss this interview with Fr. Murr.

I can also tell you that we are working on a second interview with Fr. Murr. Wait until you see what he says next!!

Please consider subscribing to Inside the Vatican to get these and other quality materials.

Also, I am now permitted to reveal the name of the theological journal in Europe that has published my essay in response to Archbishop Viganò. It is the Rivista Teologica di Lugano. You will find it in the 2nd volume of the year 2020. An abstract can be found here.

Be sure to watch the video version of this essay.

I have a few more things in the works. For now, however, I hope that you enjoy these present materials.

The Miraculous Medal: Examining an Objection

For the past several years, a rumor has circulated on the Internet about “false” versions of the Miraculous Medal going around. Supposedly, the Freemasons have struck their own version of the medal. This claim has upset a lot of people who are concerned about having authentic medals.

St. Paul Street Evangelization (SPSE) of Warren, Michigan has received numerous inquiries about the claim of “false” miraculous medals. As sellers of the Miraculous Medal, this matter was concerning to the organization. I was asked if I would perform an objective examination of the facts on behalf of the organization. I have done so and present my findings below. Click here for the document in PDF format.
