in Northern Ireland:
Always at the Heart of the Problem
Father Sean Mc Manus
Father Sean Mc Manus will explain how anti-Catholicism has always been
used in Northern Ireland to ensure Protestant/Unionist/Orange supremacy
and British rule. However, the British Government under Tony
Blair now seems no longer interested in propping up a sectarian
anti-Catholic state. Therefore it should become increasingly apparent
to the world that the core of the problem has always been about
extremist Protestant/Unionist/Orange reluctance to accept the concept
of equality with Catholics.
The Irish National Caucus, 413 East Capitol Street SE
Washington, DC 20003 Tel: 202 544 0568; Fax: 202 543 2491
And Fr. Mc Manus poses the question: Could the latent (and not so
latent) anti-Catholicism in some sections of the media be part of the
reason why the American media largely ignored the problem in Northern
Ireland, except to condemn the IRA? (Remember the noted American
historian, Arthur Schlesinger has termed anti-Catholicism as " the
deepest bias in the history of the American people").
Fr. Sean Mc Manus, a native of County Fermanagh -- one of the six
counties (out of Ireland's 32 counties) that make up Northern Ireland,
still under British rule. He is a noted expert on the Irish issue. As
president of the Capitol Hill-based Irish National Caucus, he has the
unique record of working on Capitol Hill since 1978, lobbying the U.S.
Congress or, as he puts it " working for justice and praying for peace
The Irish National Caucus is nonviolent, with no foreign principal. It
is neither Democrat nor Republican, but dedicated to getting both
Parties to stand up for justice and peace in Ireland.
Fr. Mc Manus has based his Special Ministry on the teaching of the
Church which states " Action on behalf of justice is a
constitutive dimension of the preaching of the Gospels" ("Justice in
the World". Synod of Bishops, Rome 1971).
From the Mail: Professor Fernando M. Gomide of Petropolis, Brazil
writes: Profiting the “lift” I am sending you the present floppy disk
with a work on the NEO s, false and genuine private prophecies and as
well Bible prophesies. It is all in Portuguese. Well, there
are many language departments at the numerous American Universities,
and so, if you are interested in the subject consider it would not be
difficult to obtain a translation. That would not be the case in
this abominable country called Brasil (highly leftist, heathen and
politically corrupted community).
Am sending also the papers on the actual infinite in
logic, mathematics and physics. Walter Gomide do Nascimento Jr.
is my 2nd degree cousin who is finishing now his doctor thesis at the
PUC (Pontificio Universideda Catolica) department of philosophy.
Best regards to our Catholic friends of CAS+E.
In Christ and Mary,
Dr. Patrick THEILLIER, Head of the Medical Bureau, President of the
International Medical Association of Lourdes writes: I have well
received your letter. I know well the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina
Apostolorum in Rome, where I have already given a conference and where
I will give another soon. I am happy that Dr. Coan spoke on
miracles of Lourdes on the 29 of September. Felicitations.
Considering your Book Catalog, could you think to include my book in
English: “Talking About Miracles,” Redemptorist Publications.
Thank you very much. Sincerely Patrick (translation by FJK)
De. E. Michael Jones, Publisher of Culture Wars writes: Dear
I have the Solzhenitsyn book (on the Jews in Russia) in German. I'm
planning to read both volumes as soon as I finish the chapter on
Freemasonry and the French Revolution. My daughter-in-law has a copy of
the original Russian version. This should be translated into English
and she could do it with help. But the book has clearly been
blacklisted by the publishing industry. All the best, Mike
Lady Jeanne Ficarra writes (concerning Dr. Marcin‘s talk on
Modernism): Dear Frank, This sounds like an interesting
presentation. Whenever you have one like this during day hours, let me
Academican Rafael Waters writes (concerning Dr. Marcin’s talk on
Modernism) : This sounds a great lecture, Frank, and hits right
in the center of our culture. How they can betray the Church after
taking the anti-modernist oath is difficult to understand. Also, why
they do not take it now is even more difficult to understand--except
they don't know the meaning of it.
My lecture to the CAS (Catholic Academy of Sciences) was leaning in the
same direction as Dr. Marcin's lecture.
It was good meeting you last Saturday.
A SPECIAL ROMAN FORUM EVENT
“How Capitalism Dismantles Catholic Culture”
A spectre is haunting Roman Catholics in the United States: the
increasingly insistent campaign to associate libertarian capitalist
ideas with orthodox Christianity. This campaign is actually an old one,
beginning in Europe in the aftermath of the Revolutions of 1848.
Catholic Social Doctrine developed in the context of rebuking what was
really a liberal Enlightenment effort to exploit justifiable fears of
materialist Socialism by demanding submission to an equally materialist
Capitalism. A special Roman Forum conference on November 5th is
designed to demonstrate that, far from being a foundation for Catholic
culture, modern capitalism annihilates the Catholic vision. It will
demonstrate that supporters of a “free market”, unrestrained by the
Church's Social Doctrine, like supporters of power politics, accept the
fallen order of nature as the scientific framework for life, and
prohibit efforts to restore all things in Christ. In short, it will
show that “no one can be a sincere libertarian capitalist and a Roman
Catholic at the same time.”

Jose Maria AntonLC, Atty. Mark Ryland and Philippine Consul
Jerome Castro our special meeting in Rome was a great success.
The great Roman Schools are actually making a joint graduate program
with a specialization in the relations between Science and the Catholic
Faith. That way specialists can be trained in this
interdisciplinary field and they can qualify for jobs in
interdisciplinary departments everywhere! Angie and I were able
to get Pope Benedict XVI’s blessing at his Sunday Oct. 9, 2005 Angelus
Service at St. Peters. I will try to summarize our Italian trip
and put it on the web site at www.cas-e.org. I can also send DVDs
or VHS tapes of the meeting. Angie and I are going to Japan and
Holland soon. Pray that we get more good results for the growth
and health of CAS+E.
At our Meeting on Sept. 28 we were asked to pray for Rebecca Hatef, a
seven year old child seriously ill with a brain tumor. We should
also pray for Mr. Richard Hanna and all of our sick members and
Best Regards, Frank Kelly
