Remnant Website Update: The new and improved Remnant website is due to launch Monday, December 23, 2013.  Thanks for your patience. MJM

Old Memes Die Hard

By Nathan Metzger

Nothing speaks quite to the power of delusion’s ability to fight reality, than Hollywood’s portrayal of the Church. On television and in the movies, the Catholic parish is inevitably cast as an imposing, cold, gothic venue, with marble floors and a high altar. It is filled with dark paintings and haunting statues that stare knowingly at our movie’s star, who has wandered into this judging, incensed place at a moment of crisis (his own, ironically). From the loft streams the effervescent sound of Gregorian chant (at all hours of the day, apparently), and there are grated confessionals, manned perpetually by reprimanding priests, for our hero to visit. Or perhaps our movie’s star merely sits vexed and confused in a pew, disheveled from the elements and the events of the movie’s narrative, staring longingly at the towering crucifix above the altar, waiting to be greeted with a ‘my son’, and perhaps then chastised, by a serious, cassocked priest strolling past.

A Remnant Update from Michael J. Matt

The Remnant Website
The Remnant’s website has seriously malfunctioned over the past week or so. We can update the site but only via means similar to those used by hackers. Very cumbersome! Our site has been around for a long time, having been established in 1996 on the then avant-garde software, FrontPage.

Of course, FrontPage is now a dinosaur, whose extinct extensions are no longer supported by most web hosting companies. Last week those extensions finally gave out completely.

The good news is that our new website is scheduled to be launched in a few days. I’m convinced visitors will agree that it was well worth the wait, since it will be much more interactive and will provide a full range of comments options and social network sharing. The new site will also provide considerably more exclusive content on a weekly basis, as well as serve as the gateway to the new Remnant blog and Remnant TV.

The Latest Issue of The Remnant is in the Mail
The latest print edition of The Remnant is now in the mail. It’s a double issue and includes groundbreaking articles on the pontificate of Pope Francis by Peter Crenshaw, Michael Matt, Christopher Ferrara, Dr. John Rao, Brian McCall, Tim Cullen and Father Michael Rodriguez.  Quo Vadis, Franciscus is the title of Chris Ferrara’s powerful new study of the Pope’s Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium, but it is the general theme of this entire issue of The Remnant.

Please consider subscribing to The Remnant’s E-Edition so you can access these important articles right away, as well the many other excellent works in this our mega-issue of 2013.

Thank You
Thanks again for your patience as we prepare to launch the new Remnant website.  We’re almost there. Please visit us on Facebook to keep up on our progress in expanding the entire Remnant operation.

A New Article
In the meantime here’s another fine article by our newest columnist, Nate Metzger, to help “tide you over” until we get back up and running.

In Christo Rege,

Ordinary Time, Ordinary Ministers, Ordinary Everything
By Nate Metzger

I’ve written previously of my anti-climactic conversion from Lutheranism, and I don’t want to bore the good readers of this magazine by opining at length over an issue that is merely testimonial in nature. But allow me the indulgence to speak of this one last time.

Confessional Lutherans who convert to Catholicism are a peculiar lot. We are in the rare position, among converts, of knowing quite well what Catholics actually teach, long before converting. Certainly, I was under some slight misapprehensions, but my coming to the Church was not a matter of discovering that the picture of Catholicism I had been taught by my teachers and pastors growing up was full of gross exaggerations, outrageous mischaracterizations, and outright falsehoods. In catechism class, we read the Baltimore Catechism and looked at the Tridentine Mass. It is not uncommon to find a confessional Lutheran kid, attending his parish school, who knows more about Catholicism than the kid at the Catholic school down the road. In fact, these days, that’s what one should expect.

This Week in History: Thanksgiving and the Way We Were

Introducing a new segment, Michael discusses the historical origins of Thanksgiving and compares them to the Christophobic state of our country today.

Of Good Taste and

Things Beautiful

(Baseball, Beer and the Latin Mass)


by Nate Metzger

In a previous article, I argued briefly that, despite the common aesthetic problems of Novus Ordo worship-style, it was not in the best interest of traditionalists to focus on these deficiencies, but to instead focus on the problematic nature of the new prayers. Let me briefly say a bit more about this here.

I know a Catholic fellow who, while perfectly nice and polite, I can’t seem to understand. He is pleasant enough, to be sure. In fact, he is extremely generous and kind.

But he doesn’t drink alcohol and he doesn’t follow baseball. And for these reasons, I have a hard time relating to him...MORE>>>

The Remnant Underground

Michael Matt warns against "piling on" where Pope Francis is concerned. Do we really want the Far-left to control the narrative and use our Pope to serve their radical agenda? Or are we going to come up with a better strategy and fight back?



Pope Francis and The Three Amigos


Padre Pio

Why the Traditional

Latin Mass?

A 12-Point Checklist  

Father Michael Rodriguez

1) The venerable and immemorial Roman Mass, including in its exquisite ritual detail, is theocentric—centered on and directed to Almighty God.  It gives constant glory to the Triune God:  a sacrifice of adoration, thanksgiving, propitiation, and impetration, directed to God, both theologically and ritually....MORE>>>

The Remnant Underground

Michael Matt and Christopher Ferrara, down 

in the catacombs, discuss religious liberty and Pope Francis

Is the traditional teaching really to simply banish non-Catholics?

Burn down their churches? Reinstate the Inquisition?

Or is this just a lot of Catholic-bashing, revisionist hysteria!

What about Pope Francis?

The Neo-Catholic Road to Cardinalettes

Impossible! (Like Altar Girls?)

by Chris Jackson

On November 3rd, Vatican spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi commented on reports that Pope Francis would name women Cardinals for the February consistory. Almost immediately, certain Neo-Catholic media pundits, as well as the secular press, began to spin the words of Lombardi to imply that he strongly opposed the idea of women Cardinals. Catholic Online chose the headline, Pope Francis Will Not Appoint Women as Cardinals,” while the Irish Times went with, “Vatican dismisses reports of women cardinals.  Conservatives focused on the fact that Fr. Lombardi called the reports “nonsense” and that it is “…simply not a realistic possibility that Pope Francis will name women cardinals for the February consistory....MORE>>>

Founded by Walter Matt

“Walter Matt’s courageous decision to found The Remnant in 1967 could be said to have given birth to the Traditionalist Movement in the USA.

I would go as far as to say that without Walter Matt there would be no Traditionalist Movement in the United States.” . . .
