Introduction by Michael J. Matt
More than forty years ago—during the disastrous reign of Pope Paul VI, the latest candidate for a Vatican-issued Halo Award, by the way—my father, Walter L. Matt, organized the first large scale public reception in the U.S. for the late Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre.
It was held at the Radisson South Hotel, Minneapolis, on Tuesday, May 12, 1976, and its stated purpose was to assist the Archbishop in gaining a stronger foothold for the Society of St. Pius X in the States during the unprecedented crisis Blessed Pope Paul had helped unleash on the Church.
On that occasion Archbishop Lefebvre delivered an address on the desperate state of the Church at that time—42 years ago—that was never transcribed or published until we did so for the December 15, 2017 print edition of The Remnant.
New from The Remnant Underground...
In the spirit of Madame Defarge: Michael Matt takes a hard look at the George Soros-backed Women's March in D.C., New York, London, Rome and all around the world--and asks the question: What are they really protesting and what does it mean for our country and for all of us?
What happens if Trump loses in 2020? And what's with the little reddish hats? Do these not harken back to "les bonnet rouges"--the red "liberty hats" worn by the terrorists who beheaded Catholic France back in 1789? What's the connection? Why do these women hate us President Trump? Why do they hate pro-lifers?
New from RTV: Sunday Sermons of South St. Paul
Father tackles the question of the Vatican's rediscovered "seamless garment"-- calling it a 'filthy rag that needs to be burned' And then he moves on to President Trump, hailing him -- from the PULPIT, mind you -- as the 'most pro-life president in 45 years. Given the volatile political climate at present, we really wonder how many other priests in America would have the courage to give this sermon. Many, we hope and pray.
