My Writings. My Thoughts.
Our Blessed King spoke seven “words” from the altar of the Holy Cross. Since His every breath was an agony, these words must have been of great importance. On this episode of Shield of Faith Matthew reveals why they have been the source of fruitful meditation for generations of Catholic Saints.
On the anniversary of Benedict XVI’s abdication of the papal throne, Matthew reflects on the Pope Emeritus’ “medieval” Pontificate and its impact on understanding the lay vocation as a call to sanctify the secular order through the virtues of chivalry.
Matthew belatedly celebrates the Feast of the Purification with the story of the little-known but fully Church-approved devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary under her title Our Lady of Good Success and the importance of this devotion for the Church and the world.
