On December 26, 1957, Fr. Augustin Fuentes (postulator for the causes of beatification of the Fatima seers, Francisco and Jacinta) interviewed Sister Lucia, the eldest Fatima seer. As Fr. Karl Stehlin describes in his Fatima: The Great Secret of Fatima (volume III), the progressive authorities in Rome soon thereafter sought to discredit Fr. Fuentes and his interview, which should give us some indication of its importance today:
“Why then such a strong reaction to this text? First, this text placed Sister Lucia among the prophets of doom whom John XXIII condemned in his speech at the opening of the council. The Pope, therefore, must not have liked what she was saying. Regardless . . . Sr. Lucia revealed certain details of the Third Secret in this interview.”

What is the ESG and how is Klaus Schwab using it to empower Microsoft and bury Tesla?
In this edition of The Remnant Underground, Michael J. Matt discusses Elon Musk -- one of the Lost Boys of the post-Christian Neverland.
He doesn't even believe in God and yet the Left hates Musk almost as much as they hate God. Why? Michael says he knows exactly why!
By definition, Socialism is a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done.

Is the United of States of America (USA) fast becoming the Union of Socialist States of America (USSA)? Yes!
BREAKING: Pope Francis plants another tree and gets all hot and bothered over climate change again. In this episode of The Remnant Underground, Michael J. Matt discusses the cancellation of Christianity in America, especially on Catholic college campuses.
“Nothing is done in the world that does not relate to our Lord; it is either for Him or against Him, with Him or without Him. Our Lord is the key to the solution of all the problems. There are none here below that are indifferent to our Lord. Men try in vain to work without reference to our Lord, but it is impossible because our Lord is everywhere. He created everything; therefore everything is in His hands. Everything belongs to Him, nothing is outside of Him. Men seek to evade Him, but they cannot because everything is His.”
“[R]elativism … allowing oneself to be carried away with every wind of doctrine, seems to be the only attitude that is fashionable. A dictatorship of relativism is being constituted that recognizes nothing as absolute and … only leaves the ‘I’ and its whims as the ultimate measure.” (Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, homily at Mass before the conclave that elected him as Pope Benedict XVI.) (Emphasis added)
When Our Lady said to the three young children at Fatima, Jacinta, Francisco, and Lucia, “Certain fashions will be introduced that will offend Our Lord very much,” I have always thought that there must be something more being warned about than mere articles of clothing. After all, wouldn’t Mary be warning us of major evils to come should we continue on our way of debauchery and sin? And as bad as immodest clothing items are, there were other far worse evils occurring.
Once upon a time, in the tiny Vatican City State, Benedict XVI, the soon-to-abdicate Pope, ordered his three most trusted confidants to undertake a top-secret investigation into the financial, sexual, and moral scandals at the Vatican.
The three prelates dutifully investigated, interviewed key prelates and Vatican employees, reviewed documents and videos, and scoured archives for information. The investigative team gathered intelligence regarding the persistent and intractable financial and clergy sex abuse scandals which plagued the Vatican. Allegations surfaced that the investigators uncovered a powerful underground gay lobby, rampant with blackmail, extortion and breathtaking financial fraud.
Twenty years ago, a saintly friend of mine who lived in France and who has since gone to his eternal reward, recommended that I take a group of Chartres pilgrims to the tomb of Saint Mary Magdalene in the South of France.
His name was Arnaud de Lassus, and I can still remember his arthritic finger tracing a line on a map (yes, a paper map) from Chartres to La Salette and all the way down to a place called Saint-Baume. “Go here,” he said, “you will never regret it.”
Good Friday, 15 April 2022
Astiterunt reges terræ, et principes convenerunt in unum, adversus Dominum, et adversus Christum ejus (Ps 2 :2). The kings of the earth and the princes have allied themselves against the Lord and against Christ. The Psalm which begins the First Nocturn of Matins on this day declaims succinctly. Let us break their bonds ; let us cast away their yoke from us ! Is this not what we have been seeing happening right before our eyes for a long, too long, a time ? Do not the powerful and the elite want to cancel every tie with God and rebel against His holy Law ? Do they not seek to disfigure the image of the Creator in the creature and the likeness of the Holy Trinity in man ? And how many times are we ourselves tempted to withdraw from the sweet yoke of Christ, ending by making ourselves slaves of the world, the flesh, and the devil?
All of today’s liturgy resounds with the indignation of the Divine Majesty; of the dismay of the provident Father at the revolt of His children; of the sorrow of the Son over the ingratitude of man; of the bitter disappointment of the Paraclete at the insane obstinacy in evil of those who make themselves blind to the Truth and deaf to the Word of God.
In this RTV Short, we offer a snapshot of old-world Christianity. It's Holy Week and this is still how it is celebrated in the streets of many cities in Spain.
I offer this video as a touching example of what we've nearly lost, have not lost yet, and must see fully restored one day. The New World Order hates everything this represents, but they have nothing to replace or rival it.
“And when He was come to the place, He said to them: pray, lest ye enter into temptation. And He was withdrawn away from them a stone’s cast, and kneeling down He prayed. Saying: Father, if thou wilt, remove this chalice from Me, but yet not My will, but Thine be done. And there appeared to Him an angel from heaven, strengthening Him. And being in agony He prayed the longer. And His sweat became as drops of blood, trickling down upon the ground.” (Luke 22:40-44)
