Deliver Us From Evil

By Charlie Johnston I promised that on this, the 104th anniversary of the penultimate day of the apparitions at Fatima, I would offer a prayer of repentance and renewal for all those who have been damaged by the counter-scientific Covid restrictions, including the experimental gene therapy shot.

The Widening Gyre

By Charlie Johnston I will be home later this week and expect to get back to a more regular publishing schedule.
