When perusing various traditionalist sites, one often finds the word “naturalism.” What on earth does naturalism mean? It is a philosophical concept that dates to the eighteenth century. In a nutshell, naturalists believe that there are no supernatural forces at work in the universe and that we can explain everything in the world via scientific experiments.

During the course of the 20th century, naturalism was condemned by several different popes include St. Pius X  and Pope Leo XIII. According to Dr. Tom Droleskey, not enough has been said about naturalism in our own times. As much as I disagree with the man on numerous other points, I agree with him on this. In that naturalism has been responsible for many problems that exist within the world.

I will write more later on further investigation.

Our Lady of the Angels, pray for us!

St. Francis, pray for us!
