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

Pope Changes His Papal Crest

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: Of course there is always the tendency to minimize this, however, this pope is known for teaching through symbols. The return of the papal tiara is highly symbolic, especially after it's absence for nearly five years. Symbolically, it would seem to represent a return to authoritative administration after a period of pastoral instruction. Such a change would be most welcome among the faithful who have endured the tyranny of "progressive tolerance" in the Church for far to long. Our pope has done a marvelous job instructing the faithful on what the Catholic faith is and should be. Now it is time to put some teeth behind it and begin enforcing the message. Whether or not that is the pope's message here remains to be seen, but that's how I'm interpreting it.
