On November 22nd, I will have the privilege of speaking at an event hosted by the Society of St. Pius X and Our Lady of Fatima Church in Portland, OR.
If you’re in the area, please join us. In any event, please spread the word. This promises to be a memorable evening.
The title of my talk is, “Popes St. Pius X and Francis: A Study in Contrasts”
In this presentation I’ll discuss the stark contrast between what Pope St. Pius X understood to be the requirements of his exalted office, and the approach currently taken by Pope Francis. Rather than simply celebrating the glorious memory of Pope St. Pius X with a strict focus on the past, we’ll reach the inevitable conclusion that the gifts and the insights that guided his pontificate are of a timeless nature, therefore, a Holy Father with the wherewithal to reign after the manner of this saintly pope is precisely what the Church and the world in our day desperately needs.
