“The tongue cannot claim to be ignorant of what the teeth are doing.”  ~African Proverb.

The battle continues to rage between the Vatican’s population control experts who support Pope Francis’ environmental agenda, and the Catholic pro life movement. The Pontifical Academy for Social Sciences (PASS) serves as the battleground, where its Chancellor, Bishop Sanchez Sorondo continues to defend the Academy’s reliance on virulent abortion proponents, like Jeffrey Sachs of the Director of the UN Sustainable Development Network. Bishop Sorondo defended the choice of his experts by stating that they were participating “on the questions of climate change and modern slavery” and that abortion was not mentioned during the conference. His weak defense is reminis cent of the African proverb, “Much silence makes a mighty noise.”

Preamble

Among the Catholic faithful the conviction grows that the ongoing crisis in the Church and the drastic moral decline of our civilization have entered a critical new phase which represents a turning point in the history of the world.

In the Church, a Synod on the Family has devolved into a battle to defend the indissolubility of marriage from an attack within, pitting cardinal against cardinal and bishop against bishop. The Synod has produced a midterm relatio, approved by the Pope himself, which calls for the admission of divorced and remarried Catholics to Holy Communion on a “case by case” basis without any renunciation of adulterous relations, contrary to the explicit teaching of Pope John Paul II in line with the perennial discipline of the Church. [1] The same document speaks of “valuing” the “homosexual orientation” while recognizing the “precious support for the life of the partners” supposedly provided by “homosexual unions.” [2] Bishop Athanasius Schneider rightly observes that “[t]his is the first time in Church History that such a heterodox text was actually published as a document of an official meeting of Catholic bishops under the guidance of a pope, even though the text only had a preliminary character.” [3]

Today the internet is buzzing, again, with something that Pope Francis has said that could be seen as a heresy by Catholics paying attention. And once again, it comes in the form of vague, indefinable, platitudinous terms that could be interpreted any way the listener wants. But we have another little Franciscan gem that hides something very pernicious indeed: the notion that God can change His mind.

Our friend Carol Glatz reports
"Catholics, Protestants and Orthodox must pray together and work hand-in-hand helping the poor, Pope Francis told thousands of Catholic charismatics and members of other Christian communities.

If the devil “unites us in death, who are we to divide ourselves in life?” he said, adding that all Christians can and must pray together, as they have all received the same baptism and are striving to follow Christ." The pope said Christian unity was the work of the Holy Spirit, which meant Christians need to pray together in a “spiritual ecumenism, an ecumenism of prayer.”

Against the Wolves Featured

Written by

Does Hell exist? Were Adam and Eve real people?  Was Moses real? Did he part the Red Sea? Did he write the first five books of the Bible?  What exactly are we Catholics allowed to believe now that the wolves have "updated" our Church? 

It was midmorning. My husband and I were driving along I-75 when an old, slightly beat-up truck passed us on the right. There was a sign nailed to it—a flat white board with big black letters. We laughed when we read it. It was so true. 
God is great. Beer is good. People are crazy.

A friend told me later that the words were from a country music song by Billy Currington. The sign wasn’t original, but that didn’t change the impact of those three short sentences. The world has indeed gone mad. This isn’t hyperbole. I’m a mental health professional.1 I know crazy when I see it.

Things are not as they should be.

Remnant readers may know that I have become a regular guest on the Mike Church Show, Channel 125 on the Sirius Radio Network, which is known as Patriot Radio. The same channel features the “conservative” talk shows of Sean Hannity, Mark Levin and Glenn Beck, along with Brietbart News.

I put the word “conservative” in scare quotes as to Hannity, Levin and Beck, but the remarkable thing about Mike Church is that he is an authentic conservative, by which I mean a conservative who views political, social and moral questions from a traditional Catholic perspective as reflected in the papal and conciliar Magisterium before the late unpleasantness of the imaginary “renewal” of Vatican II.

Indeed, over the past year or so Mike Church has emerged as the only traditionally Catholic conservative in talk radio today, anywhere in the world. And I mean traditional. Not only during my appearances on the show, but now thematically, Mike has turned the longest running political talk show on Sirius Radio into an unabashed presentation of the Social Kingship of Christ, traditional Catholic moral teaching, and even the traditional Latin liturgy as the solution to what is evidently otherwise a terminal civilizational crisis. I have been invited on the show numerous times to defend all of these things explicitly, to speak of the one true Church, and even to call upon conservative Protestants to enter the Church if they are serious about saving our nation and our civilization.

Does the Pope Really Want a Debate? Featured

The Church knows that honest debate must be encouraged among experts.”~Laudato Si, Pope Francis

Throughout Laudato Si, Pope Francis states that he is open to a debate and a dialogue on the environmental issues raised in the encyclical. In fact, nearly 21 times in the body of the encyclical, Francis urges for dialogue among religions, ideologies and people. The Pope also calls for a debate on the environment solutions some 12 times in the encyclical. Although he says he wants contrary opinions debated and presented, is that the reality at the Vatican and this papacy.

The very language of the encyclical exposes the real intent of the Vatican. In the first sentence of section 14 of the encyclical, the Pope calls for a “new dialogue” a “conversation” about the environmental challenges. Yet, by the end of that very same paragraph, the Pontiff arrives at a completely contrary position:

St. Therese of Lisieux Promotes Devotion to the Holy Face St. Therese of Lisieux Promotes Devotion to the Holy Face
This is another sad day for America. By this direct salvo against the Holy Sacrament of Marriage, by attacking one sacrament, one attacks them all.  In attacking the sacraments, one attacks Christ to HIS FACE, as He is the reason and source for all of the sacraments. 
 
Thus this national-public act of blasphemy against Christ and His Sacrament of Marriage demands national-public acts of reparation. 

 

  • ETERNAL FATHER, we offer Thee the Holy Face of Jesus,      covered with blood, sweat, dust and spittle, in reparation for the crime      of those who profane the Holy Sacrament of Marriage.
In a long-sought victory for the gay rights movement, the Supreme Court ruled on Friday that the Constitution guarantees a nationwide right to same-sex marriage.

Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote the majority opinion in the 5 to 4 decision. He was joined by the court’s four more liberal justices.

God help us all as we prepare for persecution of all things Christian and the crucifixion of the Mystical Body of Christ in America.
Pope Francis asked the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I to "bless me and the Church of Rome" Pope Francis asked the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I to "bless me and the Church of Rome"

While most Catholics may be aware that the date of reckoning Easter fluctuates from year to year, they may be blissfully ignorant of how it is currently calculated in the Western Church, the impact that it annually has on the liturgical calendar, and its long, complicated and controversial history.

Though we are now past the liturgical period of Paschaltide, these points concerning the date of Easter are especially pertinent at this time, as Pope Francis announced on June 12th in St. John Lateran’s Basilica to the International Catholic Charismatic Renewal Services III World Retreat of Priests—whew, what a title!—that an agreement had been reached in fixing a common date of Easter with the Eastern Orthodox.

New from Remnant TV... Featured

Catholic Counterrevolution: Garda, THE Encyclical, a new video on the Chartres Pilgrimage -- THE answer to all that is going wrong today.

Cardinals Pell and Burke endorse the Traditional Catholic symposium at Lake Garda.

Powerful Catholic blowback against the new encyclical and the alliance between the Church and the UN-led new world order.

Since my buddy Chris Ferrara has, perhaps before anyone else in the English speaking world, done a thorough examination of the pope’s environment encyclical, “Laudato Si,” I will confine myself here to some observations of a different sort and to proposing a few questions for consideration – to talking around it, so to speak.

A great many people, long before the document was issued yesterday, have been asking whether it should have been written at all. Is this appropriate for a pope? Why was it necessary? Why, of all the possible topics, did Pope Francis choose this one? Has he stepped outside the proper bounds of papal authority? Aren’t there more pressing matters for the head of the Catholic Church to think about? (Does anyone know how many Chaldean Catholics are still alive in Mosul, Iraq, for instance?)
