The Pope on Ecological “Catastrophe … The Church is often the Only Hope”

January 2011 Amendment: The following entry was originally written under a slight misapprehension as to the Holy Father’s words. In a British print journal, I had read the Pope say that in terms of the global climate crisis: The Church is the only hope. The quote had been taken from Light of the World – […]

What Josephin Péladan WANTED

  Here are further extracts from my upcoming book, Cor Jesu Sacratissimum: From Materialism and the New Age to the Catholic Mystery. It is perhaps worth mentioning that this is taken from a chapter that focuses on desire: on what people want. The chapter tries to evoke how desire is collectively channelled through different collective […]

The Death Cult Progeny of the Enlightenment III

  At the end of preceding segment, I turned to the subject of hope. For I share a world with many who are losing hope as to the sustainability of our present civilisation. And as I have written earlier in this little series, I myself have little hope in the prospects of creating an ultimately […]

Is the only means of restoring the lost authority of the Church through the undoing of so, so much that happened in the wake of Vatican II?

Unfinished Personal/Global Musings IV (Valentin Tomberg on False Hierarchy)

I no longer recall my exact words of course. But the essence of the conversation remains engraved on my mind. It was a warm, sunny Spring day in France. People in shirt sleeves were frolicking in the shine. But it was too warm, too pleasant. It was too early in the Spring. My beloved turned […]

Unfinished Personal/Global Musings II (Valentin Tomberg on Disintegration – Death)

Unfinished Personal/Global Musings Part I (Introduction)

Authority … one has authority or competence to speak about something the more consciously and fully one has experienced it. In writing of things New Age for example, I feel a certain degree of confidence, given that I have had long, intimate involvement with this phenomena.
