Announcing

Catholic Action -

Fr. John Berg, FSSP Fr. John Berg, FSSP

St. Mary Parish, the FSSP apostolate in Providence, Rhode Island, was recently featured in a news segment on WPRI, a local Rhode Island station.

The video features interviews with Fr. John Berg, FSSP, pastor of St. Mary’s, and parishioners of the church.

A church which, prior to the arrival of the FSSP in late summer of last year, was facing dwindling attendance and a very real danger of closure. 

One of those interviewed is a parishioner who has been attending St. Mary’s for ten years and saw it go from flourishing to just surviving, and now has witnessed its revival under the administration of the FSSP.

He was a little skeptical of the Latin Mass at first, but now seems to have embraced the liturgy that has drawn faithful from all over the region and filled the pews once again. “It will never close now,” he says with a grateful smile. 

REMNANT COMMNET: In case anyone has somehow failed to notice, the FSSP apostolates are booming all across this country. The story is always the same: Church scheduled to be shuttered, flourishes after traditional fraternity takes over.  

It's the exact same story with the Church of All Saints here in Minneapolis. The parish was all but dead a few years ago. The FSSP came in and now the place is teeming with young families, two priests, some nuns, a huge home-school co-op and hundreds of faithful refugees, in desperate search for what Holy Mother Church has been offering her children for almost two thousand years.

This is fast becoming a traditional Catholic national revival.

God is good, and this thing is far from over.

AND JUSSIE FOR ALL: A Review of News

Written by
Jussie Smollett Jussie Smollett

No Deal with Rocket Man

It is hard to fathom that North Korea’s Kim Jong-un will ever eliminate his nuclear arsenal.  Kim is also no more concerned with North Korea’s best interests than Nicolas Maduro is with Venezuela’s.  Take away Kim Jong-un’s nukes and nobody knows his name – most especially the United States.  Without nukes, North Korea is Albania, but with a worse climate.  Trump’s summit with Kim Jong-Un may have ended without a nuclear arms treaty, but no deal is better than a poor one. 

Dems in White Blouses

How about all those Democratic Congresswomen who sat together during the State of the Union Speech all geared up in white trying to look pure and innocent because after all, the good gals always wear white, right?  However, after a second glance and a rewind of history, the only time Democrats would get together to wear white always came with a hood and a burning a cross.  Fast forward to today’s contemporary Democratic Party where abortion and infanticide is all the rage, but getting caught wearing black face from the 1980s, and you’re a pariah.  Chuck Stroup tells me that shoe polish manufacturers have now added warning labels for any of their products sold to Democrats: “Do not apply to face.”

It’s the Democrats who accuse Republicans of racism, yet they can’t bring themselves to pass a resolution condemning anti-Semitism or censuring Rep. Ilhan Omar.  Democrats still deny that there is an immigration problem as Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen recently reported to a congressional committee that Mexicans have been smuggling enough Fentanyl into the U.S. to kill every American twice over.

UnplannedMovieAbbyJohnsonKids Can Get Actual Abortion But Can't Watch Movie About One 

The movie “Unplanned” was rated R by The Motion Picture Association of America much to the initial chagrin of the movie’s producers.  The film has no nudity or profanity, but it does show the horrific act of aborting a child and thus got tagged with the restricted rating.   The film centers on Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood director, who is now a steadfast pro-life advocate.  The irony of the R rating was not lost on the producers who underscored that a teenage girl must obtain parental permission to watch a movie that involves an abortion, but yet in many states throughout our fruited plain a girl does not need parental permission to have an actual abortion. 

The producers were quoted in Movieguide.org saying, “Maybe it’s for the best.” “…every mother of a teenage girl needs to take her by the hand and go see (the film) with her.” As far as they are concerned, R means recommended. 

"We're the Clintons, and we want your money."

The Clintons’ 14-city speaking tour will be coming to The Met in Philadelphia on April 13.  According to vividseats.com, the cheapest seat will cost you $31 and the most expensive that was still available, $406.  Imagine how much the Clintons would charge if they were not “share the wealth” socialists who condemn capitalism.clintons

Let's Tax Selfies

According to The Wall Street Journal, the California Public Utilities Commission will no longer levy a tax on texting as the FCC said text messaging is an information service and not a telecommunications service.  From the gate the Golden State was barking up the wrong redwood.  Provided California is so tax happy, they should instead levy a tax on selfies.  Considering the narcissism of Californians, the state would wipe out their state pension deficits and balance their budget within a month. 

Soon Dems'll Need a Wall to Keep Rich People In

Provided another “Green New Deal” is ever drawn up by Democrats Rep. A.O.C. and Senator Ed Markey’s the only thing it will ever accomplish is to greatly increase taxation.  Then, Democrats will finally have to approve Trump’s wall to keep all the rich folks in the country.

Jussie Smollett and Black Gay Privilege

Jussie Smollett is the gay O.J., who hopes to Kaepernick himself.  With all criminal charges dismissed (gay-black privilege, anyone?), Smollett remains a hero to Leftists because he framed the narrative they want desperately to be true: that white America is racist, homophobic and violent.

March Madness

To underscore how the 2017 tax overhaul is progressive and unchanged is the fact that the top one-fifth of taxpayers will still pay the bulk of federal taxes rising from 84 percent to 87 percent. 

In my March Madness bracket from the opening tipoff I had the IRS and the PA Dept. of Revenue in the finals with the IRS besting the state 60-40.

How about you?

From a Remnant Reader in New Zealand:

I wondered if you would like a comment on today's events in NZ. The prime minister, Jacinda Ardern, has called for two minutes of silence to be observed to recognise the victims of last weeks' mosque massacre. 

Interestingly, we are all being invited to join the commemoration which will be broadcast nationally.  It will begin with the Muslim call to prayer, then will conclude with nearly 30 minutes of Muslim prayer during which we are all requested to remain silent.  There has also been a nationwide show of sympathy by wearing a hijab (head scarf) for the day! 

Naturally, we will not be joining this official ceremony.  We will visit our local parish church and recite the Rosary. 

Here is a video about the 2-minute - silence... 

 

Would love to hear some comments by people outside New Zealand about what they think of all this.  

REMNANT COMMENT: Due to the horrific nature of this tragedy, we would invite comments which are sensitive to the families of the victims. Muslim or Christian, such acts of atrocity are an abomination in the eyes of God and Man.

We are curious to know, however, if our readers agree that the New Zealand PM's national call to silence Christian prayer and amplify that of their Muslim neighbors would fall within the realm of a legitimate ecumenical overture during a time of crisis.

In any case, our prayers are raised to the God of Christianity—the one and only True God—on behalf of the Muslim victims of this act of senseless violence.

Muslim or Christian, we can all agree that the perpetrators of such heinous acts of terrorism surely deserve to burn in hell should they depart from this earth unrepentant.

AOC AOC

Proving the Dems will play dirty in their efforts to run Trump out of the White House, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just got busted for failing to report $1 million of campaign cash with which she secured her win in the midterm elections.

From LawEnforecmentToday.com:

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her Chief of Staff were just quietly removed from their role as board members on the PAC Justice Democrats, reported the Daily Caller.

The action comes shortly after a complaint was filed with the FEC alleging that she and Saikat Chakrabarti committed campaign finance violations that helped her win the 2018 midterm elections.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her Chief of Staff could be facing multiple civil penalties or even jail time due to an investigation into whether she hid control of an outside PAC that helped solidify her win in the 2018 midterm elections.

According to the Daily Caller, Ocasio-Cortez and Saikat Chakrabarti gained majority control of the Justice Democrats PAC in late 2017. Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti were officially taken off the Justice Democrats’ board on March 15, according to a corporate document to the Washington, D.C. Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs, The Daily Caller stated.

REMNANT COMMENT: "It appears Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her associates ran an off-the-books operation to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars, thus violating the foundation of all campaign finance laws: transparency." - Tom Anderson, Director of the National Legal and Policy Center's Government Integrity Project

Well, yes, but let's not forget how this little performer got her gig in the first place: she literally tried out for the part...
