When Pope Francis visited Japan in November, it marked the first time a supreme pontiff had alighted on Japanese soil since Pope John Paul II’s brief stay in February of 1981. Although Pope Francis’ visit included the same three cities as did John Paul II’s—namely, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and Tokyo—there are glaring differences between the two visits, and the two papacies.
For one thing, while Pope John Paul II was unapologetically pro-life, Pope Francis has turned the phrase into its opposite through the skillful use of ambiguity.
As Advent slips away, I hasten to ask friends and subscribers to consider helping The Remnant out this Christmas. The cost of newsprint and postage is ever on the increase, especially as printing companies struggle to compete with online content distribution systems, inducing more and more newspapers to either go out of business or switch over entirely to an electronic option.
I have no intention of doing either, but I do need a little help. If you’re not already a subscriber to The Remnant, please consider remedying that as soon as possible.
Bishop Schneider at the Catholic Identity Conference 2019
One day, when St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta was stopped by international border police who asked her if she was carrying any weapons, she plainly responded, “Yes. My rosary and my prayer books.” Arguably, a faithful Catholic would have to say the same thing today if they were caught red-handed with a copy of Christus Vincit, an arsenal-packed, book-length interview featuring the ineffably profound insights of Bishop Athanasius Schneider.
"As the Bible tells us, when the Wise Men 'had come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary, his mother, and fell down and worshipped him.' Christians give thanks that the Son of God came into the world to save humanity. Jesus Christ inspires us to love one another with hearts full of generosity and grace.” - President Donald Trump, Christmas Tree Ceremony, 2019.
Ever hear the President of France say anything even remotely like this? How about the Chancellor of Germany? Spain? Portugal? Just presidential lip service? In that case, what the world really needs is more lip service!

From the Editor’s Desk, Michael Matt takes a hard look at the big event nobody in the Vatican seems to want to talk about—the Nairobi Summit on the 25th anniversary of the International Conference on Population and Development (Cairo).
This Bill and Melinda Gates/UN Population Fund affair was all about contraception, family planning, reproductive rights and…. the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Yes, that’s right—the very same goals Pope Francis and Jeff Sachs have been promoting inside the Vatican for years.
Editor’s Note: We’re very grateful to Father Johnson for this excellent, if quite provocative, sermon on the fundamental problems with the Second Vatican Council. Father was kind enough to send this sermon transcript to us in the wake of our RTV program The Amazon Papacy (#ToHellwithVaticanII). I’m happy to say that I would be hard pressed to refute a single argument made herein. #UniteTheClans! MJM
Dearly beloved in Christ: I first preached this sermon in 2012 in all of the chapels over which I had charge in the United States. I also preached it two years ago in Adelaide, South Australia, and last year in Wanganui. It seems not to have lost its relevance as recent circumstances compel me to preach it once again, this time here in Tawa.

In this RTV Short, we take a quick look at the fact that all the far-Left, pro-abort, pro-NWO politicians are big fans of Pope Francis.
Everyone okay with that?
Given that Democrat hopeful, Bernie Sanders, was invited to speak in the Vatican just five months before the 2016 presidential election, isn't it a pretty safe bet that the Vatican will try again to interfere in 2020?

Can Francis and Soros Defeat Trump in 2020?
So, here we go again -- the Church's largest charitable organization, Caritas Internationalis finds itself embroiled in another McCarrick-esque sex abuse scandal.
CNN just dug up the fact that the head of the international Catholic charity's African branch, Salesian Father Luk Delft—a notorious convicted sex offender--was nevertheless promoted to the prominent Caritas position.
-- PUBLICATION NOTICE --
The November 30th issue of The Remnant Newspaper shipped this week.
Please pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters in the underground Church in China who have much more to suffer since Pope Francis betrayed them to the Communist government.
Bishop Vincenzo Guo Xijin is at the moment on the run from Communist police because of his refusal to register with the Catholic Patriotic Association— the state-sponsored Communist church with which, incredibly!, the Vatican is now partnering.
All this and so much more in this new print/e-edition of The Remnant Newspaper.

From Rome, Michael Matt writes an Open Letter to Pope Francis explaining to him why faithful Catholics the world over are resisting this radically leftist pope to his face.
Borrowing from St. Paul in Galatians, Michael promises not only to resist Francis but also to teach his children to resist him and to never stop resisting him until he dies or radically reconsiders his campaign to destroy what's left of the human element of Christ's Church.
November is the month of the Poor Souls
I was involved in a car accident today and died not long afterwards. The surgeon who attempted to save me recorded the time of death as precisely 2.05pm. I immediately found myself in a dreadful setting. I was being judged. My entire life was under the microscope. There were as far as I could ascertain four persons present.
Firstly the Judge – Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, the source of all authority. He was not there as the Good Shepherd but as the Judge of terrifying majesty with accusing holes in His side, hands and feet, put there by me. Then there was the prosecutor. A humourless, compassionless character, highly skilled in this process. While he had an air of crushed ambition he also displayed bored complacency given his high success rate in these matters. One witness was present – my Guardian Angel. The fourth person was me the accused.
