A Call to Catholic Rural Life

A Call to Catholic Rural Life

Since the dawn of the industrial revolution, as good people were abandoning their rural roots for the city life, church leaders have been warning against the troubles of urban living and the problems that can come with disconnecting from the land.  One of our readers here at TraditionalCatholicHomestead.com  sent me a link to a beautiful Papal Encyclical from Pope Pius XII .  I like it so much that I thought I would share it with the rest of you (thanks PB), it…

Community Part III

**Warning this is a repost from the early days of the Traditional Catholic Homestead a couple years ago, but I feel like community is so important and so lacking in much of the world that it bears being touched on again and opened up for more thought and perhaps discussion….this is a three part post that I will share again over the next couple days, or if you like you can dig the rest out of the archives—PAX Dave  …

Homesteading Must Have?—Scythes!!!

Homesteading Must Have?—Scythes!!!

The more I use the scythe the greater the appreciation I have for the versatility and tranquility of using this age old homestead standby.  I’m not talking that $5.00 yard sale find that looks like something from a grim reaper cartoon.  If you’re going to experiment with a scythe do yourself a favor and get one of the European or Austrian style scythes.  They’ll take a razor edge relatively easily and are feather weights compared to the more common American…
