A Satanic Culture Is Emerging

By Tom Scotus | Sep 30, 2020

The cultural transformation of our once great Western civilization is alarming. After nearly 1700 years of Christian civilization – the greatest civilization ever known – a thoroughly Satanic culture is emerging. Most people seem to be unaware of this and would most likely argue against the proposition; however, it most certainly is taking place. Even…

What Do You Most Desire?

By Tom Scotus | Sep 17, 2020

One of my favourite Bob Dylan albums was titled Desire. I find that word to be deeply alluring. During my life, I have desired many things: my father’s approval, popularity among my peers, academic achievement, wealth, sex, close friendships and many, many other things.

Love Is The Key To Heaven

By Tom Scotus | Jun 13, 2016

I will never forget the short passage in the New St. Joseph Baltimore Catechism that described how God will judge us after we die: “… he will do it in a simple way. He will look in our hearts to find one thing — love.”
