Hello Everyone! This post is the first entry to introduce my video series responding to Taylor Marshall and Timothy Gordon on Fátima. I announced the series here on the site recently.
In September of 2018, Marshall and Gordon made a podcast entitled Third Secret of Fatima & the Smoke of Satan in the Church. I was quite interested to see the direction in which they took the discussion. There were good points during the podcast. There were also some questionable moments.
Hello Everyone! I continue to be busy and have recently received some news of import to me that I might be sharing with you soon.
I discovered some rather fascinating videos available on the Internet about Fátima. They are in Portuguese, so those with a facility in the language will find these to be very enlightening. Go check them out!
Pope Francis has requested that the faithful recite the Rosary and the Prayer to St. Michael during the month of October (Italian, English).
His Holiness can rest assured that these prayers will continue to be said by me and I encourage others to do the same.
Did anyone else catch a little gem in the notification from the Holy See’s press office? It confirmed that the prayer to St. Michael was indeed composed by Leo XIII. I am not entirely too sure if the Vatican has ever acknowledged this fact in a public setting. If it had, great, if not, then we now have it.
In the meantime, the second edition of Pope Leo XIII and the Prayer to St. Michael is now available. Be sure to pick up a copy!
In 2017, I had the opportunity to read Fr. Charles Theodore Murr’s bookThe Godmother: Mother Pascalina, a Feminine Tour de Force.
For those who do not know, Mother Pascalina was the right hand of Pope Pius XII. She was, arguably, the most powerful woman in the Vatican during Pius’ pontificate. There has been much written about her over the years, some good, some not so good. I do not pretend to be an expert on Mother Pascalina’s life, but I am interested in learning more about her. Enter Fr. Murr’s book.
While reading, I was struck by a quote that Fr. Murr attributed to Mother Pascalina. The two were talking about the infamous alleged private revelations at Bayside, New York. Fr. Murr attributed to Pascalina the following quote:
In the light of various ideas that arise over the years about private revelations (authentic or alleged), I think we could all learn from Mother Pascalina’s wisdom.
