My latest column: “New Year, New Life In Christ“

New Year, New Life In Christ

January 5, 2023


Merry Christmas.

This column, the last of 2022, is written with sentiments of gratitude for your readership both of this column and of our historic newspaper The Wanderer. Good Catholic journalism, like much that passes for Catholic in these very strange times, is very rare indeed. Labels cannot be trusted for the reason that many publications and much of media bearing the name of our Faith are in fact the very opposite of what is claimed. I hope you have found this paper, on the contrary, to be a solid Catholic voice among a cacophonic chorus clamoring for attention.

Also, too there is an obsession with filth and with sin among many who claim to speak with an authentic Catholic voice and sensibility. Such persons may hold offices or titles in the Church, but this alone cannot confer the authority of Faith which commands our obedience. No, we must examine what is said and done by anyone, no matter rank or station, against the Faith of all times.

We know that “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” (Heb. 13, 8) He taught that new wine must be place in new wineskins. He spoke this way of Revelation, which ended with the death of the last Apostle.

As this paper goes to press the news has come that Pope Benedict XVI is very ill and we are requested to pray for him. Please join me in doing so.

A traditional prayer for popes is the following:

Orémus pro beatíssimo Papa nostro Benedetto XVI.
Dóminus consérvet eum, et vivíficet eum, et beátum fáciat eum in terra, et non tradat eum in ánimam inimicórum eius.
