Why we have removed the Blog

As you can see, this web site no longer has a blog.

Regular viewers will have seen that we had stopped the blog previously, when we were moving and didn't know when we would be able to access the internet again, and we also felt that it was the time for us and others to pray, ponder, and concentrate on God.

We still feel that that is "The one thing neccessary", but we felt inspired to start the blog again because people told us of their distress and confusion over what they heard in the media about the Catholic Church, and often the secular media's half-truths and incorrect details were adding to their confusion and affecting their religious faith. We therefore tried to offer such people the security of hope, that God Himself will sort out the mess.

However, someone has told us that their impression is that the blog is criticising Pope Francis, which is why we are again stopping the blog. For although it is necessary for everyone to use their powers of discernment when evaluating anyone's actions and words, we cannot judge another's motives whether they be Pope or pauper. And most importantly, we do not want to give cause for scandal.

Please pray for us as we continue to try to set up our hermitage in the far distant isles of Orkney. Which have just celebrated the 900th anniversary of the martyr St. Magnus. May St. Magnus and St. Tredwell (a local female hermit) pray for us all.
