His biography from The Catholic Encyclopædia
Ted Hewitt hasn't posted. We will update when he does.
Today in history:
AD 1530, Cardinal Thomas Wolsey adviser to England's King Henry VIII, R+I+P. He was one of the last moderating influences on Henry's sexual lusts, which led directly to schism and ultimately the protestant revolt in England.
AD 1780, Maria Theresa Roman Empress by right of marriage and motherhood, Queen of Hungary, R+I+P. Her son, Joseph, who succeeded her was a freethinking heresiarch who gave birth o a new form of Erastianism called «Josephism».
AD, 1812 Napoleon's Grand Army crosses Berezina River in retreat from Russia. His attempt at bringing Holy Mother Russia under the yoke of the Revolution ended here and led directly to his downfall.
AD 1898, C.S. Lewis born in Belfast, NI. Pray that at the Judgement Seat he saw the Truth of our Divine and Catholic Faith to which his good friend J.R.R. Tolkien was unable to lead him.
AD 1945, Monarchy abolished as Yugoslavia proclaims its republic. A misnomer since it was a Red dictatorship under Josip Broz, aka Tito! Zhiviot Srbska! Long live King Alexander!
AD 1964, Roman Catholic Church in US replaces Latin with English. A sad, black day for our Holy Mother Church and for our Greco-Roman Catholic Civilisation and Culture!
