I believe that the traditional Tridentine Mass, the Mass of the Saints, is the most reverend and holy and will lead more souls to heaven. I also believe that a rural life is more conducive not only toward this heavenly goal but also to a more satisfying and fulfilling life. After all Christ came at a time when the world was agrarian and the Church calender is based on an agrarian cycle.
Richard F. McCormack, former Chapter Leader of the Ridgefield, CT chapter of the League of the Kingship of Christ and the Holy Name Society is a popular traditional keynote speaker, writer and former teacher and administrator at St. Padre Pio, a traditional Catholic school, also in Ridgefield, Connecticut. He speaks on a variety of issues and topics of vital interest to traditional Catholics including: economics, current affairs, globalism and the New World Order, and traditional Catholic spirituality. His influential PowerPointÒ presentations are imaginative and entertaining while simultaneously maintaining the serious nature of the topics at hand.
He cut his teeth in Catholic activism as the Editor-in-Chief of the Holy Name Newsletter that originated from the Chapel of Christ the King in Connecticut, which had wide circulation throughout the Northeastern United States. He also has had articles published in The Angelus and Catholic Family News.
Mr. McCormack is a devoted fan of G. K. Chesterton, Hilaire Belloc, Lt. John Sharp, Dr. Peter Chojnowski, His Excellency Richard N. Williamson, SSPX, and other prominent Catholic activists of both the past and present, with the result that he believes that the answer to today’s complex social and economic problems lies in the return of society to Catholic teachings and values. To this end he is the owner moderator of Catholic Rural Solutions Yahoo Group, which advocates the return of fathers to traditional roles and occupations in or near the home, and stay-at-home moms, whose chief and blessed occupation should always remain the nurturing, forming, and stable anchor of the family. Mr. McCormack is a big promoter of traditional Catholic homeschooling, most especially in view of the godless contemporary indoctrination that passes itself off as education.
Mr. McCormack has in past shared the podium with other prominent Catholic speakers such as: Mr. John Vennari, Editor of CFN; Mr. Tom Gabriele, popular circuit speaker on traditional Catholic issues; Mrs. Colleen Hammond, noted author on Catholic women’s topics; and Dr. Tom Droleskey, another distinguished traditional Catholic author and speaker.
Mr. McCormack is available for speaking engagements to all traditional Catholic venues and groups, (though not always in his clan kilt) and can be reached at email@example.com.
