Any Advice on Protecting Their Country from Terrorism?

I bet not.

The Cult of Youth

Where is the prudence in his advice?


A Progressive Who Has a Clericalist Mindset

What a surprise... he couldn't elaborate on the lay vocation without mentioning liturgical ministries.

Catholic Street Evangelization

CWR: Catholic street evangelization and getting “back to basics”
Steve Dawson spends his days talking to strangers about Jesus—and rejects the idea that street evangelization is a "Protestant thing."
By Paul Senz

Hacksaw Ridge Trailer

Fully Converged Disney

Now developing a sequel to The Rocketeer featuring a young African-American woman as the hero. Boycott Disney.

The World War I Setting is Interesting

Enough to save the Wonder Woman movie though? The movie apparently makes the Triple Alliance the pure villains; World War I should have been another reason to keep Diana away from humanity, given the moral ambiguity of all sides. But Hollywood can't make that kind of movie. Does the DC Amazon help sustain girl power fantasies of feminists and be sustained by their purse power? Or will ticket sales be driven by the fanboys?

A Socon Website?

Pat McNamara Did a Class Down in LA in December!

No mention of how much it cost.

It would be great if he did another this year. But it won't be with Alias.

The Icelandic Clapping Chant

It is rather weak, in comparison with the Maori haka and the he like. Maybe if the clapping is replaced by drums it'd be more effective.

What is Iceland's incredible Euro 2016 clapping chant about, why is it called the 'Huh' and where did it originate?

Iceland? Motherwell? Lens? Where did the 'thunderclap' originate?

Iceland’s ‘Viking War Cry’ Is Cool, But Where It Came From Will Surprise You

Recently it has been used by members of Génération Identitaire, go to 5:34:

"La Marseillaise" is not really handy as a street chant.

White men in search of something to express their tribal bond (and masculinity)... So who is bringing back the Rebel Yell?

Marion Maréchal-Le Pen réagit à l'attentat de Saint Etienne du Rouvray - BFMTV (27.07.16)

Is anything of substance happening at the DNC?

Trump pressing on with the offensive. Go to 33:20.

Repetitious for a purpose? Are normal pols like this?

Icons at Lourdes

Recently added? I don't recall seeing them when I visited the basilica back in the 90s. They're reminiscent of the Year of Mercy logo.

The Hollywood Reporter Review of Jason Bourne

Todd McCarthy

Eh, I could have guessed the spoiler from the trailer but it's still disappointing. What kind of movie do you make about Jason Bourne without it being formulaic.

Mass Youth Rally in Progress

Will they end with the next pontificate?

Will Génération Identitaire Experience Greater Growth This Year?

After the Murder of a Priest in France

Marion Le Pen: Christians Must Stand up to Islam; Young Patriots Should Join the Military Like Me

Will this sort of male-shaming work? (Perhaps she is an egalitarian who believes that women should play more than a support role in the military.)

Her twitter.

Bringing Orthodoxy to Spain

Young Catholic Professionals

The name and purpose of the group sounds like "Opus Dei lite."

The local affiliate has a Legionary of Christ as chaplain/spiritual director -- is the national organization affiliated with the LCs?

For the first event there is a dress code (business professional) -- not business casual? Reminds me of the Catholic "social" group (forgot the name) which admits only people who have a college education.

Will YCP be like SJ Catholic Professionals?

Clergy-Laity Conference

Photos from the Symposium on St. John Maximovitch

As Archimandrite Irenei will become bishop of Sacramento, will someone else take over leadership of the institute?
