No Catholic is required to believe the messages from the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary to the three children of Fatima, but the reactions to the messages from high-ranking churchmen reveal several vital aspects of the current crisis in the Church. The conclusions we can draw from these reactions do not depend on the Fatima messages being legitimate — all that matters in this analysis is that the churchmen under consideration purported to believe them. And yet, if we honestly assess the way in which Church’s leaders have acted in light of the messages of Fatima, we can see something absolutely staggering: their actions paint the same picture of apostasy as that apparently contained in the complete Third Secret of Fatima that they have concealed.

The Little Ferret comes under fire from the Supreme Court in Canada for abuse of power. So, what now? Well, Mr. Trudeau has promised to rid the nation of. . . pizza ovens. Feel safer now?
An important new documentary exposes the errors of cultural Marxism and then, oddly enough, uses Lesbian “conservatives” to promote their work. Meanwhile, Virgin Atlantic introduces gender-neutral uniforms for its pilots. So, a dude dressed like a lady will fly you home next time.
A gift from Michael
Apart from the bitterness caused by Fiducia Supplicans, last Christmas brought me an unexpected joy. After more than thirty years, I re-watched Frank Capra’s film, It’s a Wonderful Life (1946). The one to whom I must express gratitude for this (re)discovery is Michael J. Matt. When he saw my small list of family movies that can be enjoyed during the Christmas holidays, he expressed surprise that I hadn’t mentioned this particular title. Drawing my attention to one of the most significant cinematic creations, Michael gave me an unforgettable gift.
I wonder what it would take to shut down the Vatican’s fake-news feed. An example: Ever since he got over the wall, Pope Francis has been telling the world that the Catholic Church – before he arrived on the scene, of course – had more or less neglected the poor and certainly cared next to nothing about those suffering on the peripheries of society.
One of the meditations in St. Ignatius’s Spiritual Exercises depicts the spiritual war between Jesus Christ and Lucifer, in which all men must choose which standard to follow:
“Consider that we are all placed between Jesus Christ and Lucifer, and that it is equally impossible either to serve both at once—‘No one can serve two masters’ (Matt. 6:24)—or to remain neutral without serving one or other, for Jesus Christ says, ‘He who is not with Me is against Me’ (Luke 11:23). It is, then, necessary to make a choice.”

In this episode of The Underground, Michael breaks down the latest from the Lunatics of Davos, where the world’s elites are freaking out again. Field Marshal Schwab and little Alex Soros on Disease X, so-called “fake news,” and the return of Donald Trump.
Plus, witches spit spells in Davos, dead Teslas freeze in Chicago, and the cost of living in America skyrockets. We may not own anything in the future, but at least we’ll be happy…!?
By the way, it turns out Pope Francis has been donating your tithing dollars to the World Health Organization for its plan to “protect us from Disease X,” predicted to be “twenty times more deadly than Covid.” (How do they know that?)
Another bishop called out Team Francis, arguing that we must not obey the Woke Pope. And, finally, a courageous African’s defense of Christian morality brings down the house at the United Nations. Now, why can’t Francis be THAT Catholic?

“What I am going to say is not a dogma of faith but my own personal view: I like to think of hell as empty; I hope it is.” (Francis, January 14, 2024 interview)
When the COVID hoax was sprung upon the world in early 2020, conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh was not fooled: the primary purpose of the hysteria and the lockdowns that went with it, he said, was to prevent the re-election of Donald Trump. The lockdowns, said Limbaugh, were designed primarily to wreck the Trump economy and thereby stymie his attempt to remain in office later in the year. The present writer came to the same conclusion, at basically the same time; about the same day as the lockdowns began. Closing the world down over a coronavirus – a type of virus normally associated with the common cold – was an act of unprecedented irrationality that could only have some ulterior motive, and that motive was very evidently not public health.
Praised be Jesus Christ!
Dear faithful Catholics, especially those who suffer as they witness our Holy Mother Church live through an unprecedented crisis. Dear Catholic fathers and mothers of families! Dear Catholic young people! Dear innocent Catholic children! And especially dear religious contemplative Sisters, the spiritual gems of the Church! Dear Catholic seminarians! Dear Catholic priests, who are “the love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus”!
In one of the most valuable books dedicated to the art of meditation, Religious Meditations,[i] Father Pierre Chaignon S.J. (1791–1883) emphasizes one of the essential aspects of how a Christian can effectively change his life by drawing closer to the demands of holiness. How? Certainly not through general, vague, and non-committal resolutions. The effectiveness of a good meditation depends on specific decisions applied with wisdom to our personal lives. Thus, Father Chaignon proposes an eloquent example:
“Let’s assume you have decided: ‘I will be patient in adversities.’ It is too vague a resolution and therefore sterile. (…) Try, therefore, to change and narrow down this general resolution. Two means are available to you for this. You could say: ‘I will be patient in such and such a situation;’ or: ‘If I am given some suffering to endure, I will think that it is too small compared to the hell I deserved.’ (…) In one way or another, your decision will be limited and therefore very good.”
If we wanted to compile a list quotations which could encapsulate the crisis in the Catholic Church and world today, we would do well to include the following from Archbishop Hélder Câmara (signer of the Catacombs Pact and a crucial influence on Klaus Schwab):
“It would shock many people if the Church came along giving the impression that I am the solution to every problem — I have the solution to every problem. No, we come only to try to collaborate with the world, not by throwing our weight around but by shedding a bit of light here and there” (Archbishop Hélder Câmara, quoted in the Archbishop Lefebvre Documentary, 39:00)
