Our Deepest Longing

By Tom Scotus / March 24, 2022

There is a longing in each of our souls that we cannot articulate precisely. I believe that great artists, whether they are musicians, writers or painters, often attempt to convey it. In my case, it takes the form of a reoccurring dream: I have just graduated from High School. I am with a girl that…

Satan’s Global War Against God

By Tom Scotus / December 21, 2020

The anti-Christian revolution that began in France in 1789 now seems to be nearing its climax. The toppling of the Christian monarchies of Europe, the spread of liberal democracy, the secularization of Western culture, the growth and spread of Marxism and Masonic globalism, are all major parts of this phenomenon. The growth of sexual perversion,…

Hail Satan! Abort Everyone!

By Tom Scotus / October 31, 2020

As I drove to our latest Life Chain event, a man stopped me in the parking lot and informed me that our traditional part of the street where we held our annual prolife demonstration had been taken over by Satanists. “Oh, boy,” I thought, “this is going to be interesting.” We gathered for prayer and…

A Satanic Culture Is Emerging

By Tom Scotus / September 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 / September 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. Jesus said, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will…

The Propers of Mass

By Saint Gabriels Newsroom / December 18, 2016

I am working on a plan to integrate the propers into Masses at our chapel.

We are at a point where for the past couple of years we have frequently been without an accompanist of any sort.  The choir has also shrunk down to the point where there may be only one person leading music on a given Sunday.

Don’t “Open Up” To Others Too Readily

By Tom Scotus / December 13, 2016

Jesus had hundreds of followers, but only 12 apostles. To the crowds, He often spoke in parables; to His chosen few, He spoke more plainly and explained the parables. Let others prove their trustworthiness before you reveal much about yourself. Even then, be cautious. Always remember the deceitfulness of the human heart (including your own).

The Enemy Within

By Tom Scotus / October 18, 2016

I’ll never forget a scene from the movie Creed. Sylvester Stallone was training a young black boxer. The two of them stood in front of a mirror, and Stallone said something to this effect, “What I found in boxing, as well as in life in general, is that the biggest enemy we have to face is ourselves.”

Put On The Whole Armour Of God

By Tom Scotus / August 31, 2016

Suddenly, it was there — a cone-shaped, white nest under the garden shed roof at the back of my property. A few wasps crawled near the round opening at the bottom. I had never seen one before and I felt a little intimidated. But, I thought, if they leave me alone, I’d leave them alone.

This presidential election is perhaps the most important since John Kennedy defeated Richard Nixon in 1960.
