The funeral for Monsignor Vincent Foy will be held this morning at 11:30 a.m. at Holy Family Parish, fittingly in the usus antiquior, the rite (or form) in which the good Monsignor celebrated Mass for most of his 77 years of priesthood. Please do peruse the review by Father Scott Murray of Rod Dreher's book The Benedict Option, which will be posted later today. However one applies the thoughts of Dreher, the principles are sound:  We Christians must take and apply ...

Of True Feminism, Early Martyrs and Thomas Aquinas


The paradoxes continue in our modern era, not least of which is that concerning 'gender' and feminism, with two stories that come to mind: First, there is the sad and tragic Emma Watson, the child star of the Harry Potter series, Hermione, now all grown up, flashing her, ahem, bosom in a rather seductive way (what word does one use?) on the front cover of Vanity Fair. Ms. Watson, who last year hung out and went on a scooter ride with ... (Continue reading)

Monsignor PIck (on right ), rest in peace. Please pray for the repose of the soul of Monsignor Ambrose Pick, pastor of Saint Hedwig's church from 1978-2002 (but was a priest for many years before that), after which he enjoyed a quasi-retirement, but would joke that he was working harder than ever.  Monsignor Pick was a great friend to Our Lady Seat of Wisdom Academy in its earliest years, and the college ...

Cyril, Methodius and Valentine

cyril and methodius

Today in the universal calendar we celebrate the ninth-century monks and missionaries Saints Cyril and Methodius, patrons of Europe, who translated the Liturgy into slavonic, allowing for the conversion of untold thousands into the Church.  They have always been venerated as the 'Apostles to the Slavs', and Pope John Paul II declared them co-patrons of Europe, along with the great Saint Benedict. Of course, on this day we also celebrate Saint Valentine, a rather obscure 3rd century martyr, who has become ... (Continue reading)

Mothers and Mosques

Mothers and Mosques

We keep hearing of ever-new insanities, as the academia-media complex tries to shape reality to fit its world-view:  Here we see that physicians in Britain have now been 'requested' never to refer to pregnant women as 'mothers'.  Not because the baby inside them may not be a baby (for, according to our schizophrenic laws, it is a baby if the 'mother' says it is, and not, if she says not), ...
