Announcing

John Rao | Remnant Columnist, New York

Dear Friends,

Only a handful of places for the twenty-sixth annual Roman Forum Summer Symposium on Lake Garda in Italy, whose theme and faculty are described and listed below, remain available. We are eager to have some more young men and women in their late teens and twenties among the sixty participants (eight are already joining us) who have signed up to date. Unfortunately, we still need to raise $25,000 in order to offer scholarships and pay the expenses of the speakers (none of whom receives a stipend for his labor. Costs have gone up because the value of the dollar has dropped significantly).

pope francis worship false prophet revelation 17 end times catholic antichrist"This brief which destroys the Company of Jesus is nothing other than an isolated and particular judgment, pernicious, reflecting little honor on the Papal tiara and deleterious to the glory of the Church and to the glory and propagation of the orthodox (i.e. Catholic) faith….Holy Father, it is not possible for me to commit the Clergy to the acceptance of the said brief."  - Archbishop Christophe de Beaumont of Paris to Pope Clement XIV

Indulgence in a fetish is a dangerous habit, blocking, as it does, access to the full reality of the given aspect of life that it masquerades, but escape from its influence is immensely difficult. The fetish in question here is “the papal fetish”; the obsessive insistence upon the orthodoxy and goodness of all statements and actions coming from a reigning Pontiff, regardless of every indication that the opposite may actually be true. And, as with fetishes in general, this papal fetish blocks access to the full appreciation of the glorious purpose that the Papacy really has, preferring a mess of willful pottage to the banquet of truth it is meant to offer to the faithful.

Regarding the “Catholic” Apotheosis of Luther

Final Session of the 24th Annual Roman Forum Summer Symposium
Feast of Saints Cyril and Methodius
July 7th, 2016

Our civilization is so sick that even the best efforts to prop up its few tottering remnants manifest the pathetic illness that has step by step brought the entire structure crumbling down. The disease in question is a willful, prideful, irrational, and ignorant obsession with “freedom”. But this is a malady that gained its initial effective entry into Christendom in union with the concept of the natural world as the realm of “total depravity”. 

You Are Invited to the 24th Annual Roman Forum Summer Symposium in Gardone Riviera, Italy ( June 27—July 8, 2016)


This Year's Theme: Half a Millennium of Total Depravity (1517-2017): A Critique of Luther’s Impact on the Eve of His “Catholic” Apotheosis

Although we already have a “full house” for this 24th annual Summer Symposium of the Roman Forum at Gardone Riviera, we can still squeeze in 6-8 young participants willing to share two rooms large enough for 3-4 people. Ideally, we would like to get one room for young men and one for young women. Doing this would lower the cost from the full fee of $2,900 to $1,200 a person for everything except airfare. Given the difficulties of putting together even that lower sum of money, donations backing these young participants would be most welcome.

A Critique of Luther’s Impact on the Eve of His “Catholic” Apotheosis

Twenty-Fourth Annual Summer Symposium, Gardone Riviera, Italy (June 27th-July 8th, 2016; 11 nights)

2017 will mark the five hundredth anniversary of Luther’s appearance on the public scene. It is absolutely certain that most of our ecclesiastical leaders, foot soldiers of the Zeitgeist that they are, will turn this date into a year long paean to the accomplishments of Luther & Company. In short, it will be the year of their “Catholic” apotheosis---and precisely at the moment when the world created through their distorted vision is actually in its death agony.

2016, the eve of this coming onslaught, must be a year of militant Catholic preparation for answering what will be a terrible travesty of the truth. It is also intellectually appropriate to use it for this purpose because in doing so one points to the fact that 1517 in and of itself was the not the original source of our woes.

"Belgium is a kingdom; not a road". It is with that phrase, whether apocryphal or true, that King Albert I (1909-1934) is popularly said to have responded to the Imperial German request to cross his country to begin the attack on France in 1914.

As the history students among you will know, the German General Staff, following the strategic plan for conflict in the West designed by the Count Alfred von Schlieffen, deemed such a route through the Lowlands absolutely necessary to victory. But Albert's commitment to Belgium as a substantive reality and not a simple passageway to satisfaction of another nation's ends stood in the path—with four years of bitter fighting and civilian suffering being the price paid for holding firm.

“Locke: dry, cold, languid, and wearisome, will live forever” -J. Bentham

Walking the Chartres Pilgrimage always puts me back on the straight and narrow path. It does so by the simple expedient of making me feel as though I am dying; as though I am a condemned prisoner undergoing a peculiar form of execution that will continue—slowly, torturously, and unabated—for almost three entire days.

Of course experience assures me that this particular misery will actually end in happiness, and that all I really need to do for the moment is add my bit to maintaining the joviality crucial to keeping the moveable pilgrim gibbet on the road.

Still, that part of me that really, really hurts—namely, every bone and muscle in my body—brings the reality of pain, death, and the meaning of it all to center stage in a way that nothing else I do during the year—at least up until now—has yet matched. And that honing in on the dreadful effects of Original Sin never fails to confirm commitment to the central Catholic teaching that is only through an ever deeper surrender to the knowledge, love, and service of God that the purpose of our lives, with all their pains and joys, can be clarified.
