Pray the Rosary. Wear the Brown Scapular. Things are Going to get Ugly, both in the Church and in the World.
"We reap what we sow. Stay in the state of grace. Pray the Rosary. Wear the brown scapular. Things are going to get ugly, both in the Church and in the world. Yet, this is no time to cower in fear but to fight in the light of day against those who seek to drag us down to hell. Have no fear!" Fr. Dana Christensen.

It doesn't look like the Douai Abbey Guesthouse will be opening anytime soon to large groups due to the coronovirus. Therefore, sadly the YCA weekend won't be able to go ahead this year.
It is hoped that the weekend will continue next year, in October 2021, presuming that covid-19 has gone/ died off.

In a stunning new interview, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, the former papal nuncio in Washington, D.C. and the prelate who accused Pope Francis of covering up the crimes of Theodore McCarrick, has now publicly stated that he does not believe that the Vatican up to today has published the full Third Secret of Fatima. This report has already found interest in Italy, by outlets such as Corrispondenza Romana and Stilum Curiae.
Speaking to Dies Irae, a Portuguese website, Archbishop Viganò says, “The third part of the message that Our Lady entrusted to the shepherds of Fatima, so that they could deliver it to the Holy Father, remains a secret today.”
In 1917, Our Lady repeatedly appeared to three shepherd children – two of whom are now canonized – and gave them one secret with three parts, the first and the second to be revealed to the public.
The third part of the Secret – often called the Third Secret – was to be given to the Pope, who was then asked by Our Lady to make it known to the world not later than 1960.
The first and the second parts of the Secret show a vision of hell, speak about the spread of the “errors” of Russia, the need for penance, and for Russia to be consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The third part as it has been published shows a Pope who is being killed on a hill, together with clergymen and laymen.
“With this departure from the Queen of Heaven's message,” Viganò continues, “a cover-up operation was initiated, evidently because the content of the message would reveal the terrible conspiracy of her enemies against the Church of Christ.”
According to the archbishop, until a “few decades ago,” people would not have believed that we could even dare to “gag” the Blessed Mother, “but in recent years we have also seen attempts to censor the Gospel itself, which is the Word of His divine Son.”
The Italian prelate states that the Vatican, when officially presenting the Third Secret to the public in 2000, presented an “incomplete” version. "

"We ask your prayers for the repose of the soul of the Chaplain of the Grand Priory, Monsignor Dr Antony Francis Maximilian Conlon, Grand Cross Conventual Chaplain ad honorem, Cross Pro Piis Meritis, who died yesterday afternoon, fortified by the Rites of Holy Mother Church.
Dr Conlon joined the Order as a Donat of Devotion in 1971, he became a Chaplain in 1980 following his ordination to the Sacred Priesthood, and was appointed Chaplain of the Grand Priory of England at its restoration in 1993, thus the first Chaplain since the Reformation, a post he has held for the last 27 years. He was appointed Grand Cross in 2015.
Educated at the Royal English College in Valladolid and the Venerable English College, Rome, he held a Licence in Church History from the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome. His PhD, undertaken at Heythrop College, "What Ceremony Else", was on the English Marian Restoration.
He was priest of Westminster Diocese, ordained by Cardinal Hume. Following parish ministry in London, and after a long spell as Chaplain to Newman's Oratory School, Reading, where he made innumerable converts to the Faith, including a future priest, he was Parish Priest of Goring-on-Thames, in the Archdiocese of Birmingham, at the time of his death.
Please pray also for his family.
Requiescat in pace."

Today, the High Court granted special leave to appeal against a decision of the Court of Appeal of the Supreme Court of Victoria and unanimously allowed the appeal. The High Court found that the jury, acting rationally on the whole of the evidence, ought to have entertained a doubt as to the applicant's guilt with respect to each of the offences for which he was convicted, and ordered that the convictions be quashed and that verdicts of acquittal be entered in their place.
