It's official. The Catholic Knight is retired.  I'm hanging up the helmet and passing the torch. There will be no more articles, no more commentaries, no more calls to action. THIS BLOG IS CLOSED. I've spent a very long time thinking about this, I believe the time has come, and is a bit overdue.  I want to thank my readers for everything, but most especially for your encouragement and your willingness to go out there and fight the good fight. So, that being the case, I've spend the last several weeks looking for bloggers who are fairly active, and best represent something akin to the way I think and what I believe.  I recommend the following blogs for my readers to bookmark and check on regularly. Pick one as your favourite, or pick them all. They are all great..... In His Majesty's Service, THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT

About This Blog

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT is an opinion blog dedicated to the defense of traditional Roman Catholicism and orthodox Christian doctrine.  This is what is meant by 'putting the sword to the tyranny of relativism.'  The blogger is a traditional Roman Catholic.  He is a husband and a father, as well as a knight in the service of our Lord.  The blogger resides near Kansas City, which is located in the central region of the United States of America.  The blogger maintains online anonymity solely for the sake of his family.

In accordance with the principle of Lex Orandi Lex Credendi -- or "the law of prayer is the law of faith" -- defense of traditional Catholic liturgy is central to the mission of The Catholic Knight.  Traditional Catholic liturgy consists of the Traditional Latin Mass (also known as the Tridentine liturgy or the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite).  It also consists of the Vatican approved Anglican Ordinariate liturgy and the liturgies of the Eastern Rites as well.  The contemporary Western mass (also known as the Novus Ordo or the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite) likewise qualifies as traditional when it is celebrated in Latin, or an approved vernacular translation, with comparable reverence and solemnity to the Traditional Latin Mass. What The Catholic Knight stands squarely against is unapproved translations and progressive liturgical innovation or abuse.

The standards by which The Catholic Knight blogs are the Holy Bible and the Catechism of the Catholic Church.  These serve as the foundation for the blogger's philosophy, ideology, morality and politics. The blogger pledges allegiance to the Pope of Rome, and friendship to those bishops and priests in full unity with him.
