In the middle of that town stands an imposing old cathedral built in the 12th-14th centuries of reddish stone. Situated in front of that cathedral is the statue of a man in a […]

Isidore of Seville and the Birth of Europe as the Regnum Christi

In 1997, Pope John Paul II declared that the Internet needed a patron saint. He chose St. Isidore of Seville. The reaction of the majority of Roman Catholics – and not only Roman Catholics – around the world was, “Huh? Who’s that?” Not much is known about Isidore of Seville. And yet, he is one […]

Not Gospel, Just Dualism

I said in the first article of this blog that one of my intentions is to “identify Christendom’s enemies, both in the church and out of the church.” Indeed, it has become part of my mission work in the last several years in the US to point to those in the church who have proclaimed […]
