    Driving Sins

    Hey ! I was wondering what you all would consider to be Mortal Sins whilst driving. The only ones I can think of are Speeding, being on your Phone and Drunk. Are there any others ? Also, would you consider driving with a slightly misted up Windscreen on a cold day a Mortal Sin ?

    Scruple Trouble

    I see. I suppose that it becomes Mortal if you consciously avoid receiving the Eucharist. That is the problem. I'm worried that I've profaned the Sacrament by not mentioning my thought if it were mortal. Never-the-less, I went to Mass today and went to Communion. So, hopefully that will...

    Introduction to Catholicism

    Hey Everyone ! A new Work Colleague has been asking me plenty of questions about the Faith recently. It is fantastic as I don’t get to talk about Catholicism much at Work. I’ve been answering them to the best of my ability. He knows next to nothing about Christianity and, as such...

    How do you Solve a Problem like Intinction ?

    Hi Everyone ! This issue has been troubling me somewhat at Mass at my Parish. There are a few Parishioners that I have noticed who practice self-Intinction of the Eucharist. I've mentioned it to my Priest and he said to try and approach them at an appropriate time after Mass rather than...

    I'm a bit confused

    Here is a Story that I heard told by Catholic Apologist, Michael Voris: 'I was in the presence of Archbishop Fulton Sheen one day and he was talking to us about the Mass that had just happened. Suddenly, this man walked towards him clutching a Book. He said to the Archbishop: "Archbishop...

    It's back. "The Gospel of Jesus' Wife"

    I guess for them it is a case of self-affirmation. They get excited because it reinforces their belief that Christianity is a load of rubbish.

    Father Elijah

    I have just finished reading 'Lord of the World' by Hugh Robert Benson. The language is a little archaic as it was published over 100 years ago; but it is a gripping read from start to finish. I recommend it to you. :)

    Birds attack doves the Pope and children released

    If any symbolism can be attributed to it, I would say that the Doves represent the Church and the other birds the malign forces currently engulfing our society and indeed the Church itself. Important to note though that the Doves eventually broke free, which is exactly what will happen to the...
