After writing letters making false allegations, organizing protests and threatening the use of bullhorns, St. Louis transgender activists were unable to stop Dr. Paul Hruz on Saturday from delivering his lecture, “Sex & Gender in Light of Truth, Beauty and Goodness.”
The lecture took place at St. Anselm Parish in suburban St. Louis but was sponsored by a local organization, CREDO of the Catholic Laity — a group founded in 1995 by a small band of faithful Catholic men who felt the Church in St. Louis was going “off track.” To keep the Church “on track,” CREDO has hosted lectures by noted Catholic scholars and experts. Last year, Cdl. Raymond Burke, former head of the Vatican’s Apostolic Signatura, was the group’s featured speaker. Read more “ST. LOUIS TRANS ACTIVISTS FAIL TO SHUT DOWN LECTURE”

On Saturday and Sunday, September 29th & 30th, we were blessed with an animated public lecture and practical demonstration of principles by the Bishop Peter Elliott on the Liturgical Reforms Envisioned by Benedict XVI, at Saint Mary of Victories Church.
Credo members have been interested in “good liturgy” for many years; we have a number of enthusiasts of what is now called the Extraordinary Form of the Liturgy, and Board Member Fred Haehnel is the president of the local Una Voce chapter. Advisory Board member James Hitchcock is one of the founders of the Latin Liturgy Association, which promotes and fosters the use of Latin, and his wife Helen publishes the very fine Adormeus Bulletin, recommended by Bishop Elliott.
The complete text of the heavily-footnoted lecture is available by clicking here.

We were very fortunate to have him in St. Louis and we thank Fr. Harrison, Msgr. John F. McCarthy , and Archbishop Carlson for making this visit possible.
Spiral of Silence: A social phenomenon where, out of a desire to avoid reprisal or rejection, people go along with what they think is the popular opinion – even if they object to that opinion personally. Instead of voicing their objections, they remain silent. In cooperation with the Bishops’ ongoing campaign for religious liberty, the DVD “Breaking the Spiral of Silence” will be shown Monday, August 20th at 7 PM at St. Clare of Assisi followed by a Q & A session with Dr. Ed Hogan, director of Paul VI Institute in St. Louis.
