Cleansing Fire

Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church


By way of an introduction…

June 16th, 2010, Promulgated by Vox Clara

I have chosen to remain largely anonymous on this site. I’m sorry if you disapprove, but at this juncture I do not deem it wise for me to broadcast my presence here. I don’t aim to tell any lies about who I really am, but I also don’t aim to say much about myself either. A few of the writers here know me and I anticipate meeting some of you in the future, but otherwise my name is my own and I’d like to keep it that way.

Speaking of names, I didn’t choose Vox Clara, but it is in the spirit of the longer Vox Inter Concilia of my own choosing. Unfortunately, it was not possible to make a user name such that it included so many characters. Nevertheless, I will explain my reasoning. I chose Vox Inter Concilia because of my deep admiration for a great many voices raised between the two Vatican Councils. The likes of Adrian Fortescue, Fr. Henry Graham, Fr. Leo Rudloff, O.S.B., Gilbert Keith Chesterton, and Leo XIII spoke with a clarity concerning our Holy Catholic faith that I can scarcely claim to imitate, but which I aim to nonetheless.

To put it more concisely, I am here to expound on the truths of the Catholic faith. I may occasionally engage in discussion, but my primary aim is to present the truth as it is in clarity and charity. I apologize in advance if you’re looking for intense debates, but I don’t anticipate getting embroiled in them. I believe what Holy Mother Church teaches me and I aim to pass that on as best as I can.

Sancte Maximilian Kolbe, ora pro nobis!

    Salve, frater. It’s good to have some calm and tranquil voices here. You’re a welcome addition to our little celebration of diversity.

    Heh, welcome! It seems like Chesterton is a favourite here. For good reason–he has earned his laurels as one of (if not the) leading Catholic authors of the twentieth century.

    Vox Clara, may there be more voices like yours!

    @Gen: Whose definition of diversity…? =P

    I don’t know. Some bitter reactionary.
