Announcing: Die Gendarmen des Papstes by the Great German Catholic Scholar Ulrich Nersinger

This book is a triumph.  The finest work yet - in any language - on the papal police.  Lots of great info, inside detail, and great pictures.  Be sure to get yourself a copy.  And learn to read German!

Danke, Ulrich!

Available here:

Fides et Virtus.  

"In the Manner of Our Ancestors"

From Rome: How To Fasten a Maniple

The old style is back.  Easier than ever.  Thank you, Signor Gammarelli.

Bones of St. Peter on Display in the Vatican Basilica

The first time this has been done since likely the reign of Emperor Constantine the Great. 

Since AD 1971 they have been kept in this box.

Orbis Catholicus Tours

I am mulling with the idea of starting a tour company.

Leading tours from North America to holy sites in places like Italy, France, and the Holy Land.

Keep us in mind. 

Many have been after me for years to do just this.  Maybe now is the time.  I have just been too busy until now.   

Stay tuned for details.
