The Francis Effect Discussed in Rome Itself: The Catholic Church is Waking Up

Fr. Linus Clovis, Ordained by Pope John Paul II Fr. Linus Clovis, Ordained by Pope John Paul II


As Pope Francis continues his revolution against all things traditional, it is becoming clearer every day that faithful Catholics are beginning to wake up to what is really going on.

Please watch and share this video post.  Father Linus Clovis fearlessly addresses the issue of Pope Francis's compromise, the need to resist, the need to stay in the Church, the need to be ready to accept martyrdom rather than back down.

Father Clovis is a priest of the Archdiocese of Castries, St. Lucia in the West Indies.  He studied for the priesthood at the Angelicum in Rome and was ordained in 1983.  He holds a doctorate in Mathematics and degrees in Theology, Canon Law and Latin Literature.

He is the archdiocesan spiritual director of the Legion of Mary in St. Lucia, through which he promotes devotion to Our Lady, especially that of the Rosary, the Perpetual Help novena, and the First Friday and First Saturday devotions. He's also spiritual director of the Population Research Institute and Family Life.

Please keep in mind that Father Clovis is not addressing a Traditional Catholic conference. Rather he's addressing a group of pro-lifers who had gathered together, practically in the shadow of St. Peter's on May 8, 2015, to discuss the crisis in the Church--a crisis, they argued, that starts at the very top and that now threatens to 'come out of the closet' at the upcoming Synod on the Family.  

Thank God for faithful priests such as Father Clovis for having the courage to stand up and speak the truth. Thank God for the men and women who organized this much-needed conference.

It goes without saying that our friends at Gloria.TV are doing monumental work in defense of our beloved Church under siege.
