poletti carries ferroniGOODFr. A. Poletti Carries Bishop Ferroni to Freedom

 

One bridge connects the two territories. A few meters of barbed wire separate two worlds and two civilizations. The physical distance can be measured in a few meters. The moral distance, however, cannot be measured. On one side there is liberty, over there the negation of every religious liberty. – Father Ambrogio Poletti, from “The Priest at the Bamboo Curtain”

Under the brim of a grimy, frayed newsboy cap, two sunken eyes rimmed in black stared straight ahead from their sockets, as if frozen from fear.
A scraggily beard hung like gray stalactites from cavernous cheeks. Bald patches detailed a survey of where torturers had plucked hairs during interrogations.  Upon a stretcher lay an Italian bishop, 63 years old, frail and weak. His black tunic and dirt-stained pants draped loosely over his bones. Chinese black-cloth shoes – wrapped around and tied with spare twine – swaddled his swollen feet.

Friday, July 28, 5:45 AM: a hundred and fifty pilgrims attend Mass at Immaculate Conception Priory, the SSPX chapel in Post Falls, Idaho, before walking twenty-two miles on asphalt bike paths and abandoned railroad lines through the local towns. That night, they camp in a hay field east of Coeur d’Alene. Saturday, July 29, 6:30 AM: fifty more pilgrims, freed from the duties of the work week, join Friday’s group for a day of trekking across gravel backroads and rough logging trails in the Coeur d’Alene Mountains.

“Southern Poverty Law Center has been criticized in the past for having too broad a definition of hate.” (
WCCO TV reporter, Heather Brown, August 14, 2017) So there’s your 2017 Understatement of the Year. But then why did WCCO TV rely on an obvious Fake News source to concoct a nothingburger story like this?  
Let us consider this textbook example of Fake News. 


Last night, WCCO TV attempted to forge a link between white supremacists in Charlottesville, VA and—wait for it! —The Remnant. As the primary source for this “exposé”, WCCO reporter Heather Brown trotted out the 2006 Southern Poverty Law Center Intelligence Report on hate groups in America.

La confessione by Molteni Giuseppe

Several years ago, when it was becoming increasingly common for adults to allege childhood sexual abuse long past based upon so-called repressed memories, one of the most esteemed pastors of a local diocese was accused of sexual abuse of a child while hearing his confession. The attorney representing the alleged victim did much grandstanding in the media in preparation for the trial, only to have the case thrown out of court when it was determined that the abuse alleged to have occurred decades ago would have been physically impossible, since confessionals physically isolated priest and penitent back then.

So there’s some good news and bad. First the bad: Last month and, without any warning whatsoever, several Catholic groups found their Facebook pages suddenly and inexplicably removed from the social media giant. These included, among others, Father Rocky’s page with 3.5 million Likes, Catholic and Proud with 6 million Likes, Jesus and Mary with 1.7 million Likes and Holy Mary Mother of G 200k Likes. 

The good news: Following widespread protest, Facebook restored all or most of the purged pages just a few days later. Our friends at ChurchPOP.com explain how it went down:

Remnant Editor Michael J. Matt takes us on a scooter ride into our Catholic past. This video provides a glimpse into what Catholic life in a Catholic country would have been like, as we visit little mountain villages and churches high up in the Alps of Northern Italy. Come along for the ride, and let’s see what we lost and what must be restored again.

With the breaking of the news into the English language media-sphere the other day, some thoughts converged, into the form of a question: Why would anyone expect Emma “La Bicicletta” Bonino not to be invited to speak at a Catholic Church in Italy? Catholic editorialists are furious that Bonino was invited to speak at the church of San Defendente in Ronco di Cossato, on July 26, 2017, “World Refugee Day”. But there is an underlying tone of defeated routine in their protestations, as though they are objecting out of a dogged sense of a duty to fulfill rather than any real outrage; let alone shock.

A Bergoglian cardinal for the new Gay Church

Introduction

As I have noted on these pages more than once, the essential novelty of the Bergoglian pontificate, even in the midst of the turbulent sea of novelty that is the post-conciliar epoch, is its carefully planned and relentlessly executed assault on the Sixth Commandment under the guise of “accompanying and “integrating” public sinners involved in “second marriages” and other “irregular unions” through a vague process of “discernment” of their “concrete situations.”  In other words, a form of situation ethics in matters sexual. This development is simply apocalyptic. There is no other word for what we are witnessing.

0214WEISTLING MORGAN FAMILY TRADITIONS

Editor’s Introduction: The following article was written by longtime Remnant columnist, Solange Hertz (RIP). Though the article first appeared back in July of 1972, there can be no doubt, given the collapse of Catholic schools (and the subsequent explosion of home schools) and the general assault on Christian family life, that this article is more timely today than ever. In fact, it provides some of the best arguments to date in favor of Catholic counterrevolution by means of the total restoration of Catholic family life (including home education).  But, don’t take our word for it.  Read on and take that of one of the most prescient Catholic writers of the last half century—Solange Hertz. MJM


"Any parent tempted to think his home is his idea, to do with as he pleases, heads a house of slavery." 

- Solange Hertz -

Many years ago, squarely facing our ignorant brood and the inescapable fact that somebody had to teach them the truths of the Faith, I began looking around for tools. Among my youthful wild oats was a degree in Education which led me to believe I would need, at the very least, a blackboard.

“Let those who are still separated from Us consider attentively the ancient glories of their Church which were at once a reflection and an increment of the glories of the Church of Rome. Let them consider, moreover, and remember that this Apostolic See has been waiting for them so long and so anxiously, not as coming to a strange dwelling place, but as finally returning to their paternal home.” – Pope Pius XI
