Paul VI Homosexual
I think that Miss Horvat should present FACTS... not hearsay regarding Paul VI being homosexual!
Shame on her and on you!
In the end, for all eternity you and I will be in heaven or hell... period!
Fr. John Corapi
Reverend Fr. John Corapi,
Certainly we will be in Heaven or in Hell, be we laymen, priests or Popes. In TIA we work having the Four Last Things as a presupposition for our actions.
When you say that Dr. Horvat should present facts, what do you mean? Do you imagine we should present a picture of Paul VI sinning with his lover? If this is what you expect, neither Mr. Guimarães, upon whose documents Dr. Horvat based her article, nor she, has this sort of fact.
We have, however, the testimony of a serious member of the Italian nobility, Prof. Franco Bellegrandi, who served for years in the household of the Pontiff. He was a chamberlain of the 'cape and sword' [camariero di cappa e spada]. You may recall that the Italian nobles, even those who were highly placed, considered it an honor to serve the Sovereign Pontiff in humble works of his household. The Noble Guard and the Camarieri di Cappa i Spada were two of these corps. He served in the second corps from the end of Pius XII's pontificate until Paul VI's. Further, he was also a university professor, an author of several books and a writer for L'Osservatore Romano.
For the launching of his book containing the allegations against Paul VI as a homosexual, Cardinal Silvio Oddi was present, in this way lending his support to Bellegrandi.
The author stood behind that affirmation, based on facts he witnessed personally or were common knowledge inside the Vatican. That is, Paul VI often received his lover at the Vatican and those nobles were accustomed to see that particular television star there, having to open the doors of the pontifical rooms for him.
He wrote this in a book - TIA offered photocopies of the pages for our readers - and to this date no one refuted what he wrote.
Do you consider this a fact, Fr. Corapi? We do.

Freemasons & Rosicrucians
Dear Margaret Galitzin,
Thanks for your review of National Treasures. I realized there was a message in the movie also. After reading your review, I did some web surfing and found that Rosicrucians and Freemasonry sites are using the movie to promote themselves.
For example one Rosicrucian site invites readers on their site to join in the exploration of this important movie. You get their message about the 'philosophical and initiatic order'.
The silent video tells us: "Within every human being lies the ultimate source of wisdom, compassion, strength and peace. All too often such treasures remain undiscovered" hidden by the turmoil and distractions of our worldly existence. The Rosicrucian Order (AMORC) teaches time-honored practical teachings for unveiling the spiritual riches within.
"By tapping into this vast resource, students are empowered to serve their communities and humanity as a whole by incorporating spiritual values into all aspects of daily life. The Rosicrucian Order is committed to preserving and perpetuating that body of knowledge for the betterment of all beings and the planet."
Then there is even an invitation to join the virtual Rosicrucian society.
These movies aren't as innocent as they seem. They are promoting the Masonic groups that hate the Catholic Church - at least as it used to be!
I always enjoy reading your articles. Keep up the good work.
Benedict XVI & Fatima
As always, I can obtain the most insightful and enlightening articles from the writers of TIA.
The article, "Benedict at Fatima and the Winter Grass", by Mr. Guimaraes, amply demonstrates my belief. Whereas other so-called traditional papers jump for joy every time Benedict utters something that can be construed as conservative, your website digs much deeper, thinks harder and employs critical thinking to get at the truth.
You certainly believe that to know an individual, you must watch what he does and not just listen to what he says.
We, your loyal readers, owe you much for your 5 star analysis of important issues of the day. Please know that we are very grateful.
Blessed Imelda's Girls
You published a contribution from a gentleman in the United Kingdom, Mr. Andrew Carter, on the importance of dress, courtesy and manners. It was a beautiful contribution, supported by photographs to illustrate the points made.
One of the photographs showed young ladies from the Blessed Imelda Society of Mater Ecclesiae traditional Catholic Church. Blessed Imelda was a young Italian girl, who entered the Dominican convent when she was nine years old. She was known for her piety and obedience and longed to receive Our Blessed Lord in the Most Holy Eucharist. Holy Mother Church did not allow girls of this age to receive Communion, but one day, while praying in front of the Blessed Sacrament, the Sisters saw a Host from which emanated a bright light, hovering over little Imelda's head.
They immediately summoned a Priest who interpreted this as a sign from Almighty God, that Imelda should receive the Body and Blood of His Divine Son. The sweet little girl died in rapture soon after receiving at the age of eleven. We can only imagine how beautiful she looked in her Dominican Habit and how pure and innocent she was on entering Heaven.
The young ladies from Mater Ecclesiae Church must bring great happiness to Blessed Imelda and to our Virgin Mother. They are the epitome of Catholic modesty, humility, piety, purity and virginity. They are a credit to their parents and to those who train them in their Society duties. There are many beautiful photographs of them on the Mater Ecclesiae web site. Catholic girls have not changed over the years.
What has changed, however, is the attitude of parents, teachers and Priests towards them. When girls are trained from the earliest years in an environment of prayer, discipline and sacrifice, they inevitably turn out to be just like these admirable young ladies. I congratulate them. It is not always easy to be a good girl today, given the wickedness there is in the world around us.
I hope these girls are proud of themselves and the Church which has proved to be such a wholesome environment. May Almighty God Bless and reward them and may the Blessed Virgin cover them with Her Mantle of Blue. May they never stray from the narrow path of piety and purity which they now walk so bravely.
