In hac lacrimarum valle
Dear Dr. Valli,
I was moved when I read your reflections on the state of the Church and on the “migration” of Catholics from a dying reality to a new, more combative and guerilla dimension, as you wrote, using an image taken from a well-known radio meditation given by the young Joseph Ratzinger.
Carlo Maria Viganò: “To stand at the foot of the Cross, as we witness the Passion of the Church” – The Duty of Catholics todayWritten by Carlo Maria Viganò

In this Remnant-TV.com exclusive, Michael J. Matt considers the question of why—in the middle of global upheaval, apostasy, and pandemic—Francis is focusing his papal sights not a church wracked with apostasy but rather on the small remnant of believers who wish simply to attend the Mass of their fathers.
Even non-Catholics are perplexed by Francis’ unprecedented decision to contradict his immediate predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, who freed the Latin Mass and insisted it was never (and could never be) abrogated.
So here we are, a mere 24 hours (at this writing) after the nuclear detonation of the laughably entitled “Traditionis Custodes” (TC). I am reminded of the messages scrawled onto the casing of the Fat Man atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki: “Here’s to you!” wrote one Art Josephson of Chicago “Here’s to you!” said Bergoglio as he dropped his bomb on a rapidly growing liturgical revival, led by young people, that ever more clearly exposes the terminal morbidity of the vast ecclesial dystopia over which he presides.
Seventy-six years ago, on July 16, 1945, the first atomic bomb was detonated in a lonely desert 210 miles south of Los Alamos, New Mexico. Today, on July 16, 2021, Pope Francis has dropped an atom bomb on the Catholic Church that will harm not just those who “adhere to the Latin liturgical tradition” but everyone who values continuity and coherence, reverence and beauty, our heritage and our future.
Dear Friends: Don’t be discouraged. God is in charge of everything, and this would not be happening if He did not allow it. This has all happened before. I know, I remember, I lived through it. This is a chastisement, yes, but it does not alter what we are called to do: We must know, love, and serve God, and resist those who do not.
Francis has no power to change that.

As YouTube continues to harass RTV--actually pulling videos down now and barring us from posting new ones for the next week--we're offering this short video on Remnant-TV.com exclusively.
Rumors out of Rome have it that Pope Francis may move against Summorum Pontificum as soon as tomorrow morning. I believe this short clip will help us gear up for the resistance that will be required, and since it is a short clip, it's easily shared between friends and family on the eve of this foreboding event.
After the rise of the most problematic pontificate in the history of the papacy, many hundreds of thousands have had the blindfolds removed when it comes to the Modernist revolution and infiltration of the Catholic Church.
When most of us see the police, we see them on the front lines of the war for our country. The police are on the streets, chasing down Democrat-supported mobs burning down Black businesses or dealing drugs on the corners of Democrat-run cities. The police run toward gunfire, toward traffic accidents, toward scenes of domestic abuse. We see the police in uniform, the thin blue line between our safety and the chaos of the Woke American Revolution (WAR).

In this episode of The Editor’s Desk, Michael J. Matt discussed the following topics:
- The Left goes so far off the rails that even yesterday’s rock ‘n’ roll bad boys are standing up to defend patriotic Americans. KISS that, Mr. Biden!
- Joe Biden says he’s going to come knocking on our doors, Ronald Reagan says “Aww Shaddup!”
- The Revolution consumes its own. The EU Parliament votes to criminalize those religious extremists who oppose abortion and contraception, and guess what? Those “religious extremists” include Opus Dei.
- The Bishop of Dijon, France expels Traditional Catholics for the same “crime” that sent the 16 Carmelite of Compiègne to the guillotine. The Bishop of Dijon, by the way, says he’s only following Francis’ agenda.
- So, why in the middle of hell on earth is the most recognized spiritual leader in the world engaging in a witch hunt against Traditional Catholics?
- Why Traditional Catholicism IS the spear.
In his September 1965 intervention read during the Second Vatican Council, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre began his criticism of the Declaration on Religious Liberty, Dignitatis Humanae, with a brief summary of the document’s principles:
“Founded on the dignity of the human person, religious liberty demands equal rights in civil society for all forms of worship. Society must then be neutral and guarantee the protection of every religion, within the limits of public order.”

In this Sunday Sermon from South Saint Paul, Father puts everything on the line once again, this time by defending the very controversial Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, whom he describes as one of the "last voices of truth" in the Catholic world today.
