It's official. The Catholic Knight is retired.  I'm hanging up the helmet and passing the torch. There will be no more articles, no more commentaries, no more calls to action. THIS BLOG IS CLOSED. I've spent a very long time thinking about this, I believe the time has come, and is a bit overdue.  I want to thank my readers for everything, but most especially for your encouragement and your willingness to go out there and fight the good fight. So, that being the case, I've spend the last several weeks looking for bloggers who are fairly active, and best represent something akin to the way I think and what I believe.  I recommend the following blogs for my readers to bookmark and check on regularly. Pick one as your favourite, or pick them all. They are all great..... In His Majesty's Service, THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT

What It Means To Be Catholic In Today's World

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: Anti-Catholicism is on the rise in a very BIG way. Some of the trials Catholics face are old ones. They've been around for generations. Others are relatively new, but make no mistake about it, to be a Practicing Catholic (meaning a Catholic who believes all of what the Church teaches, and tries to practice it) is to be hated, ridiculed, despised and persecuted. Jesus warned us that if they (the powers of this world) would do it to him, they will do likewise to us. Yes, being a Practicing Catholic means being a target. I suppose that might be one reason why so many Americans are Cafeteria Catholics. Perhaps they think they can duck what it means to be Catholic if they just don't believe or act like one.
