Michael J. Matt From the Editor’s Desk… “The Catacombs Pact”. Fifty years ago this month, a body of Catholic bishops from Vatican II in Rome, gathered in the Catacombs of Saint Domitilla in order to hatch a plot to undermine the dogma that the Church is the sole means of salvation. If you want to understand Pope Francis, you must under The Catacombs Pact, which Cardinal Kasper mentions in his book on Mercy, and which sounds like something lifted right from the pages of a Malachi Martin novel. 
 



Christopher A. Ferrara The Synod on the Family: Business Model for the ‘Spirit of Vatican II’. The most comprehensive study of what really happened at the Synod. “This charade of a Synod,” writes Ferrara, “demonstrates a fact that can no longer be denied: this pontificate is an ongoing clear and present danger to the Church.”
 



Father Patrick Rutledge Be Thou King: Christ the King spreads His kingdom not by spilling the blood of his foes, not by spilling the blood of His enemies, but by spilling His own.


This is a transcript of a sermon given on the Feast of Christ the King, 2015, in St. Marys, KS. Don Pelayo began the Reconquista through one battle, the Battle of Covadonga, and eventually the whole peninsula was won back to Christendom. It took almost 800 years before it was completed. “So,” says Father Rutledge, “we must be patient.”


 

Susan Claire Potts  Apollyon Unleashed: The Power to Hurt the Earth and The War on Women
The rants of the feminists couldn’t have destroyed the Catholic home and, subsequently, the Catholic City, without a direct attack on the foundation of domestic strength—the feminine vocation.
 



Lives of the Saints
St. Theodore the Soldier When they told him he had to burn incense to false gods, he went to the pagan temple and burnt the altar of the goddess Rhea to the ground. How do you like them apples, Caesar guy!




Francis Fox Archbishop Lefebvre Was Wrong! Right? (Seriously, Why Aren’t We laughing?)
 



Patrick Archbold This Week at RemnantNewspaper.com-- Apocalypse Now? Another Great Sign Rises in the Heavens. (Check out the article which garnered 25,000 hits in just three days.)
 



Timothy J. Cullen Death by a Thousand Cuts If the Remnant is to “die”, it will not die a “natural” death: it will be metaphorically murdered. Sooner or later, any publication expressing authentically Catholic views on matters such as abortion, homosexuality and other sexual practices forbidden by Catholic dogma will find itself subject to prosecution and civil suits for daring to defy the dogma of the new “morality” that continues to metastasize in the body politic of what once was Christendom.
 



Father Celatus The Last Word…Defending the Wolf against the Cries of the Sheep.
Q) What’s worse than a wolf in sheep’s clothing? A) A wolf in shepherd’s clothing.

[Comment Guidelines]
The Remnant values the comments and input of our visitors. It’s no secret, however, that trolls exist, and trolls can do a lot of damage to a brand. Therefore, our comments are heavily monitored 24/7 by Remnant moderators around the country.  They have been instructed to remove demeaning, hostile, needlessly combative, racist, Christophobic comments, and streams not related to the storyline. Multiple comments from one person under a story are also discouraged. Capitalized sentences or comments will be removed (Internet shouting).
The Remnant comments sections are not designed for frequent personal blogging, on-going debates or theological or other disputes between commenters. Please understand that we pay our writers to defend The Remnant’s editorial positions. We thus acknowledge no moral obligation whatsoever to allow anyone and everyone to try to undermine our editorial policy and create a general nuisance on our website.  Therefore, Remnant moderators reserve the right to edit or remove comments, and comments do not necessarily represent the views of The Remnant.
