Chesterton said, “The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.”


Raphael. Marriage of the Virgin, Milan
The Government's consultation on this subject begins today, the siren trumpets sounding loud and hollow in the moral vacuum which this country has become, as the Equalities Minister, Lynne Featherstone, says that the state should "facilitate, encourage and rejoice" in people's desire to marry. It would be funny if it were not so iniquitous.

Earlier this week Tony Blair, the former Labour prime minister, publicly criticised the Church's teaching on Marriage, underlining his dissent from the statement made last week by the Holy Father (see post below) and reemphasised his enthusiasm for a policy which he has supported continuously since before his conversion to the Catholic Church, as reported in the Independent, here.  It is most illuminating that this man should support the Coalition Government on this one issue, and we can hope that it will do their cause no good.

Please SIGN the Petition at COALITION FOR MARRIAGE, here, as our Bishops have asked us.

Please also WRITE to your MP, and to 10 Downing Street.  It has been observed that paper letters, which received replies, are more effective.  Click above for the respective addressees.

Tuitio Fidei - this is why we are here in the Order.  Now is the time for action in this onslaught against humanity.

Our Lady of Philermo, pray for us
Queen of the Family, pray for us
St Joseph, pray for us
St John the Baptist, pray for us
Saints Joachim and Anne, pray for us

  1. So much for T Blair's attitude to marriage. How about his voting record on abortion? And who on earth received him into the Catholic Church? No need to tell us!
