March On Christian Soldier in the Victory Parade of Corpus Christi – BFP013

By John B. Manos / June 23, 2019 /

Corpus Christi is a prefigurement of that parade we’ll be part of in Heaven. Topics include: “Clinging to the ashes of the past” — You can have you latin, but just not in the Mass — the “eucharist” is a verb (!) — Priest on Twitter who wonders if people make an idol of the Blessed Sacrament

Runaway Memes: Pumpkin Spiced Sacrilege on the Feast of St. Gennaro

By John B. Manos / September 19, 2016 /

I have a buddy named Gennaro, and every year I think it’s the coolest thing because on his feast day, one of the most famous blood miracles occurs or does not occur. It’s sort of like the groundhog day of the Catholic calendar, in the sense that the event might happen, or it might not. Some…

The Evident and the Transfigured

By wffguest / August 9, 2015 /

by Dr. Rebecca Oas As we celebrate the Feast of the Transfiguration, it’s worth reflecting on the fact that Our Lord was not transformed on Mount Thabor [Tabor], but transfigured.

By John B. Manos / May 13, 2014 /

Harvard takes False Ecumenism to its natural end I was rather curious as the news came out last week that a group at Harvard wanted to “study” a satanic ritual. I was surprised that anybody would be surprised that ivy league schools host satan worship. Ever heard of Skull and Bones? That black flag with…

Great video of a priest offering Mass on a ship off the coast of Iwo Jima in 1945. When you think of it, in this month of the Holy Souls, offer up a prayer of thanksgiving for all of our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen.

By John M. DeJak / November 5, 2011 /

In presenting background for the 2011 linguistic changes in the Mass, the Wanderer Forum Foundation hopes to initiate a revitalization of faith. While many instructions to the faithful merely concentrate on the change in the words, we hope this background on the Mass explains why the change was needed to safeguard the true teachings of…

Adoration is the Way to Go

By Charles E. Rice / June 23, 2011 /

Are you sick of politics? Consider the derivation of the word. Some say that “poli” means many and “tics” are little blood-sucking creatures. The profession of politics, of course, is honorable. But, whatever side we were on in the recent elections, we can be excused if we suspect that politicians don’t have all the answers,…
