About us

* St Paul of the Cross prayed for the conversion of England and founded the Passionists, whose Blessed Dominic Barbari greatly influenced Blessed John Henry Newman, and Received him into the Church. The British Province of the Confraternity was founded in direct response to Pope Benedict’s ‘Year for Priests’, his State Visit to Britain, and his Beatification of Blessed John Henry Newman.

In response to Pope Benedict XVI’s ‘Year for Priests’, and on the Memoria of St Paul of the Cross* (19th October 2010), Priests of various southern dioceses, with the good wishes and encouragement of others from elsewhere in Britain, voted unanimously to found the British Province of the Confraternity of Catholic Clergy for the sanctification and support of Priests, and in promotion of authentic Priestly life, holiness and mission by

“Anchor Your Priesthood

in Your Relationship with Christ.”

“Without the Sacrament of Holy Orders, we would not have the Lord. 

Who put Him there in that tabernacle? The priest. 

Who welcomed your soul at the beginning of your life? The priest. 

Who feeds your soul and gives it strength for its journey? The priest. 

Who will prepare it to appear before God, bathing it one last time in the blood of Jesus Christ? The priest, always the priest. 

And if this soul should happen to die [as a result of sin], who will raise it up, who will restore its calm and peace? Again, the priest. ... 

After God, the priest is everything! ... Only in heaven will he fully realize what he is.”

The Academics, the Artist and the Architect:

Retrieving the Tradition in Nineteenth-Century Catholicism.

​

In nineteenth-century Europe, the Catholic Church rose like a phoenix from the still smuldering revolutionary ash. A broadly defined Catholic intelligentsia--academcies, artists and architects--laboured to retrieve the Catholic tradition for the sake of the Church's contemporary renewal. That retrieval entailed getting behind, as it were, not only the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars, but also the Reformation in order to reclaim Christianity's harmonious ordering of faith and reason. The theological enterprise of Johann Adam Moehler, John Henry Newman, and Giovanni Perrone, along with the artistic endeavours of Johann Friedrich Overbeck and the Neo-Gothic architecture of Augustus W. N. Pugin, demonstrate well the dynamics of this often heroic retrieval that laid the foundations for the perhaps better known Ressourcement of the twentieth century.

Rev. Joseph Carola, SJ, was born in Houston, Texas, in 1962. Having entered the New Orleans Province of the Society of Jesus in 1980, he was ordained priest in 1993. He studied philosophy and modern foreign languages at Saint Louis University as well as theology at the Weston School of Theology and the Pontifical Gregorian University. In 2001 he obtained his doctorate in theology and patristic sciences from the Patristic Institute Augustinianum in Rome. He is the author of Augustine of Hippo: The Role of the Laity in Ecclesial Reconciliation (2005). He has contributed to the Augustinus-Lexikon (2008) and published in Augustinian Studies, Gregorianum, and Faith. Since 2002 he has been professor of patristic theology at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome.

“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; 

and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.”
