+ Carlo Maria Viganò and Sister Antonietta Potente
An Open letter to Archbishop Viganò from Sister Antonietta Potente:
We are deeply indignant at the words that you, a christian and a bishop, have written in support of president Trump, the proponent of a policy that, in recent months, has shown itself to be increasingly discriminatory and violent, both with regard to the health emergency and these latest events of racism. It seems to us that using Scripture to justify the political violence of president Trump is like giving “pearls to swine” according to the evangelical words: “Do not give what is holy to dogs, or throw your pearls before swine, lest they trample them underfoot (cf. Mt 7:6). The language that you use in your message to the president of the United States (Letter of June 7, 2020) stuns us as women, christians, and dominican religious, but at the same time it provokes us to distance ourselves from and denounce the ambiguity of your thought and your position, which moreover employs a dualistic and discriminatory language.
As the Revolution against the Kingship of Christ rages in America today, traditional Catholic Americans remember the Catholic Uprising in the Vendée--whereby the pioneer Traditional Catholics held the Catholic ground in Western France against the nascent New World Order.
Like our French forefathers, we face a Christophobic mob who would destroy everything we hold sacred. In the face of this aggression, we take up the weapon of the Rosary and turn to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
The basic premise of globalism—not often stated by globalism’s salespeople, for obvious reasons, but apparent all the same—is that a new kind of elite should rule the world. This is not the elite that once dominated societies, for example the chivalric, manly elite of medieval Christendom or the sensitive, artistic elite of Heian Japan. The globalist elite are more of a technocratic elite, akin to the IBM, Raytheon, and Fairchild Semiconductor technocrats whose magic-like science swayed the world in America’s favor in the 1950s and beyond.

On July 3, 2020, President Donald Trump issued an executive order to erect a National Garden of American Heroes in response to recent globalist-financed efforts to destabilize America and to destroy monuments to historically significant Americans.
The President’s executive order singles out a number of public figures, including Christopher Columbus and Father Junipero Serra… who “made substantive historical contributions to the discovery, development, or independence of the future United States.”
Christopher Columbus belongs to the Church, and any affront to him is directed at the Church, which has the duty to defend his memory.

“Columbus noster est!” “Christopher Columbus is ours!” These words of Leo XIII, in his encyclical Quarto Abeunte Saeculo, issued July 16, 1892, on the IV Centenary of the discovery of America, are like a distant echo to us, at a time when iconoclastic fury in the United States of America is destroying the figure of the Italian navigator.

In this episode of From the Editor's Desk, Michael J. Matt discusses the return of the Covid pandemic lockdown and its ramifications for the coming presidential election.
As civil unrest continues to dominate the headlines and the cities of America, Michael traces the history of the destabilization--both in the Church and in the State—all the way back to the 1950s, arguing that from Bella Dodd to the Beatles to Madalyn Murray O’Hair to Vatican II, this has been coming for a long time.
With the decision in Soos v. Cuomo, federal district Judge Gary L. Sharpe has removed religious gatherings from the virtual ghetto in which Governor Cuomo, his Attorney General and New York’s Mayor Bill de Blasio had placed them under Cuomo’s crazy-quilt scheme of executive orders by which he is enforcing his increasingly indefensible, and in many applications patently ridiculous, COVID-19 lockdown.

We have heard much talk lately about white supremacy and black lives. But the more I think about both of these terms, the less I understand what they mean. What is white supremacy? What are black lives? And, is there no other, no better way of talking about human beings?
To cut straight to the chase—to “plunge the sword straight in,” as the saying goes in Japanese—I cannot help but notice the shabbiness of nearly everyone who preaches a doctrine of white supremacy. David Duke, a felon and failed political hack, is often held up as the leader of the white supremacists, at least in the United States. But if this is the best the white supremacists can do then it begs the question of why anyone would want to sign up.

This Sunday Sermon from So. Saint Paul, Father traces the powerful devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus all the way back to Our Lady and St. Joseph.
Fast-forwarding to recent years, Father credits his dedication to the Traditional Latin Mass to the fact that he first began offering that Mass on First Fridays, due to the First Friday Devotion to the Sacred Heart that made this one of the strongest TLM parishes in the country.
The order in any society depends on its morals, beliefs, traditions, laws, religion and values – in short, its culture. The revolution which is the subject of this essay is a movement which seeks to change or supplant the social order through the activities of an intending agency to change its culture.
Volumes have been written on political revolutions and their causes. A classic treatment of revolution can be found in Book 5 of Aristotle’s Politics. He treats revolutions as they occur in various types of governments. But these are external manifestations of revolution. Here I wish to focus my remarks below on basic features of revolution: its spirit, its lust for domination, and its use of deceit to achieve its goals.
What is at the heart of it is something spiritual. Let us see what the spirit of revolution has to say for itself:
