 Part 2: Theosophy and the roots of the New Age

 

 Roger Buck was born in California, was brought up partly there and partly in England, and has also lived in various places on the Continent. He is currently living in Ireland. He spent close to three years living at the New Age centre at Findhorn in Scotland, and nearly twenty years in the New Age milieu, before his conversion.

In the second part of this Iota Unum Podcast with Catholic writer and researcher Kevin Symonds, Joseph Shaw discusses conspiracies and conspiracy theories. 

In the latest series of talks from the Latin Mass Society, Joseph Shaw discusses with Kevin Symonds, Catholic writer and researcher, the Origin of the prayer of St Michael, the third secret of Fatima and was Bugnini a freemason?

Maria Madise works for Voice of the Family and is the editor of their monthly magazine Calx Mariae

Among other things, Maria discusses the original ‘schemata’ presented to the Second Vatican Council, which were intended as the first drafts of Council documents. Nearly all of these schemata were rejected, when the more progressive Council Fathers sought to gain control of the Council’s organisation.

The schema on Chastity, Marriage, the Family and Virginity represents a very useful summary of the magisterium on these closely related topics, and can be seen in English here.

Maria also drew attention to an initiative of Voice of the Family, Our Lady of the Rosary Family Catechism, a video programme of the entire Baltimore Catechism, presented by Fr Anthony Pillari, and to Bishop Athanasius Schneider’s ‘Twelve Steps to Surviving as a Catholic Family’.
