Bishops of Malta Say Public Adulterers Can Receive Holy Communion
Introduction: the Maltese Debacle
Citing Amoris Laetitia (AL) repeatedly as their sole authority, the bishops of once Catholic Malta now declare in their just-published “Guidelines for the Implementation of Chapter VIII of Amoris Laetitia” that the new pseudo-doctrine of “discernment” permits a Catholic to “discern” that he can receive Holy Communion without ceasing adulterous sexual relations, and that he must be allowed to do so:

That Pope Francis may confirm the unchanging praxis of the Church with regard to the truth of the indissolubility of marriage.
Following the publication of the Apostolic Exhortation Amoris laetitia, in some particular churches there were published norms for its application and interpretations whereby the divorced who have attempted civil marriage with a new partner, notwithstanding the sacramental bond by which they are joined to their legitimate spouse, are admitted to the sacraments of Penance and the Eucharist without fulfilling the duty, established by God, of ceasing to violate the bond of their existing sacramental marriage.

The jaw dropping invitation by Pope Francis’ Pontifical Academy of Social Science and Sciences, to Paul Ehrlich, the author of the bestseller, The Population Bomb should finally wake up Catholics. As shocking as the announcement is, it’s not surprising to Vatican observers. From the moment Bergoglio stepped out onto the loggia, this B ishop of Rome has opened wide the bronze doors of St. Peter’s to the globalists and their population control agenda.

Some of you are old enough to remember, and the rest of you are young enough to google (but I am not recommending it, due to a number of expletives here deleted for your convenience) the famous clip from the ‘70s cult flick, Wizards:

Those lousy stinking yellow fairies!
Those horrible atrocity filled vermin!
Those despicable animal warmongers!
They’ve killed Fritz!

In this episode of The Remnant Forum, Michael Matt and Christopher Ferrara break out the Catholic microscope and take a careful look at the controversial few paragraphs and footnotes of the Pope’s apostolic exhortation, Amoris Laetitia. Is Cardinal Raymond Burke a troublemaker? Is Francis merely attempting to be pastoral? Merciful? At the heart of all of this are the words of Jesus Christ which forbid adultery WITH NO EXCEPTIONS. Trouble is, Francis wants exceptions.

MJM: I want to address the 900-pound gorilla in the room—the controversy surrounding Pope Francis’s post-Synodal exhortation, Amoris Laetitia (AL). The document, especially Paragraph 305, has been described by various priests and theologians, you know on EWTN and elsewhere, as “dangerous,” “very disturbing,” “very problematic,” “a big mistake,” “a direct contradiction of Pope John Paul's Familiaris Consortio,” and so forth. First of all, Your Eminence, how authoritative is AL, and are we talking merely about scandal here, or do these problematic paragraphs savor of heresy?

From the Remnant Underground, Michael Matt recounts his experience at a recent Novus Ordo 'Gathering Rite'.
What is neo-Catholicism? What is the New Mass? Why are Jimmy Fallon, Bill Murray, Sting and Bianca Jagger readily admitting that which the Neo-Catholics insist on denying: The Catholic Church is in all out revolution that kicked into high gear at the Second Vatican Council.
Plus, more of our interview of Cardinal Raymond Burke.

When Saul Met Paul
Was it Cromwell that said, “It is time to investigate history and learn what is really at stake at this moment in time.” That being said, it is time to investigate relevant secular history and learn what is really at stake at this moment in time.
You have to wonder what impact Saul David Alinsky had on Pope Paul VI, on the Second Vatican Council, and on contemporary modernist Catholicism – especially in the United States of America.

On the other hand, dire predictions of calamity and apocalyptic happenings seemed to ring in every New Year I can remember. On New Year’s Eve 1972, for example—the so-called “Jacinta’s year”—we were told to brace for the dreaded Three Days of Darkness. Board up your windows, keep plenty of blessed candles handy, and, whatever you do, don’t look at the demon parade going on outside. I guess we’re still waiting for those Three Days of Darkness… unless, of course, they’re already here. It’s no simple task these days to tell the difference between demons on parade and public high-schoolers on holiday, God help them all.

Suggested New Year's Resolution: Keep the Faith, Despite the Madness
Two years ago, using the term “schism” in reference to the antics of the Vatican would have got you automatically labeled a sedevacantist or schismatic. Now it is used commonly by nearly everyone, including highly placed prelates in Rome. This is not because the Church is falling apart. It is not because Catholics are losing their Faith. It is because they are finding it. Because the realities have at last begun to overcome the false propaganda of the last five decades.

Disgraced Chancellor Albrecht von Boeselager of the Sovereign Military Order of the Knights of Malta
Over the Christmas weekend, as the Catholic world was otherwise occupied, the Francismachine made a move against the Sovereign Military Order of the Knights of Malta that seems to have perplexed many observers. The Holy See announced it would launch a “commission” to investigate the firing of one of the Knights’ leaders, sacked recently after it was revealed he had been allowing the distribution of condoms in Myanmar. In various venues, we saw Catholics responding with much confusion to the announcement and it quickly became clear that most Catholics don’t have a good handle on what, exactly, the Knights of Malta are or why Bergoglio may have overstepped his lawful prerogatives.
