“Reconquest,” the Crusade Channel, and Veritas Radio Network are all still new. Kinks are being worked out as these new ventures progress. Allow me to straighten out a scheduling kink now. The earlier mentions on this site of when our show can be heard correctly listed the time the show debuts, but incorrectlyposted the times when it will be rebroadcast. The following emboldened paragraph sets … More →
Today begins the traditional Chair of Unity octave, originally planned to last from the feast of Saint Peter’s Chair at Rome until the feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul on January 25. The devotion has evolved into the “Week of Prayer,” since the removal from the calendar of the feast that opened the octave. But in the 1962 rubrics, a priest may offer the … More →

My posting of this is not entirely timely, but is still worth it. From J. Stephen Roberts of Real Crusades History comes this refutation of B.H. Obama’s fatuous statements about the Crusades. The video is at the bottom of this posting, after the description Mr. Roberts provided. Make sure to read his last paragraph (the “clarification” if you’re going to watch the video).

Having recently learned Victoria’s sublime O Magnum Mysterium to sing with the Brothers and Sisters at Midnight Mass, I just spent some Christmastide recreation time watching the BBC’s one-hour documentary on the composer.

He also enjoyed the patronage of his Monarch, … More →

Professor de Mattei condemns the foolish maneuvers of liberal Western powers (the U.S., France, etc.) in causing the Paris massacres of 13 November, 2015. Included in the historian’s denunciation are both the domestic idiocy of liberalism (embodied in the diabolical trinity of liberté, egalité, fraternité) and the foreign policy idiocy of supporting jihadists in a “democratic revolution” against Arab/Muslim leaders the West does not like. The liberal mind either does … More →
