Due to the recent attacks on the Holy Father from the mainstream T.V. media and Print media,
I've created a separate page with a list of postings that may help confused Catholics on this and related issues.

I highly recommend you read all postings in this section.


Although the O'Reilly Factor, originally titled the O'Reilly Report, is off the air, because of the popularity of this show and the number of potential viewers who heard Bill's misstatements on Marian and similar Church Teachings, we have carried over his on-air blunders on the web pages below. Anyone is welcome to check our rebuttals for faithfulness.

As a person who appears to strive for the truth, especially in the faith, I'm sure Bill would welcome these corrects as an open-minded journalist.

Where do I go to financially donate to the work you and your team does on behalf of the Church?

— Read this, if you have changed your mind, and wish to go under an alias name for your posting.
Do you openly publish questions that were very personal in nature with the person's name on it?

Please keep my town of Natick, Massachusetts in your prayers; we really need them.

Brother Gregory Conant O.S.B. December 6, 1927 to July 23, 2015; Requiescat In Pace, my friend!

My good conversational friend, Brother Gregory Conant, O.S.B. died peacefully on July 23, 2015 at Saint Benedict Abbey, Still River, Massachusetts, after a lengthy illness.

I personally knew Brother Gregory before, and after, he was a professed monk at St. Benedict Abbey in Still River, Massachusetts. His engaging conversation in various areas of Church history as it related to various teachings of the Church was something no other consecrated religious will ever come close to. If he wasn't talking about history, he was talking about Popes and Catholic Councils and the effect they had on society and the world for a specific period of time.

This was a unique Benedictine monk! . . . no doubt!

His love for the Church and Church history had an important impact on my life for which I am grateful.

Requiescat In Pace, my friend!
