There were 54 Rites of Mass composed by the apostles according to the language and custom of the countries they evangelized. In this essay all comments are centered on the Roman Rite.
Why select the Roman Rite to comment on, if it is just one among many? Is it because it is said in Latin? No, in fact, the original language that it was written in was Syro-Chaldaic, composed by St. Peter in Antioch. It was the language used by the people of Judea at the time of Christ. It is divine providence that chose Latin, soon to be ‘non-vernacular’, as the language of the Church. This ‘dead language’ for the Church was to be a sign of Her unity in ‘Her Liturgy’ and to protect the meaning of ‘Her dogmas’ (for the meanings of words in any vernacular language tend to change over time – in a dead language the meanings of words never change).
The importance of the Latin Roman Rite is that it is the Rite of some 95 percent of all Catholics. It is the Latin Roman Rite that St. Paul spread throughout his missionary expeditions.

Be forewarned. This photo speaks volumes about this papacy and its collaborators. Know them by the radical company they keep.
Clout affords him heightened access to the Pope, as he sits prominently at the speaker’s dais when Pope Francis addresses the Pontifical Academy’s Human Trafficking Judicial Conference in early June 2016.
He smiles and listens as Francis acknowledges and thanks “a number of prestigious external collaborators—to whom I offer my heartfelt thanks—have engaged in important activities in defense of human dignity and freedom in our day.”
We have a situation here!
In the wake of the Family Synod, and especially in the light of Amoris Laetitia including Pope Francis’ subsequent confirmation of his intention to change Church discipline concerning divorced and remarried Catholics, I feel that the time is ripe for taking the discussion to the next level, in other words, to ask what we actually know about the overall agenda of this papacy.
In Pope Francis’ 17 October 2015 address commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Institution of the Synod of Bishops, he announced his intention to “build a synodal Church” and, to this end, promote “a sound decentralization”.
First, what exactly did he mean by “decentralization?
Guess who they're laughing at?
Our masters have created two camps in Western Society, that of the politically correct leftists and that of the “Western” “conservatives”. Both camps combat each other, not recognizing that both serve as mercenary troops of the New World Order.
In recent times Europe has been shocked and shaken by a series of terror attacks performed by Islamist terrorists. These events have caused a lot people to state that the Muslim world in general is our enemy and that Muslims are a savage horde, living in an inferior, unenlightened, primitive culture that – in order to pacify the world – has to be transformed in accordance to the achievements and “values” of “the West”. But, there are a few points to be considered to see the whole picture:

In the summer of 2011, the Puyehue Volcano near the Chilean city of Osorno, erupted sending a cloud of ash billowing into the Chilean skies and blanketing the farmlands with cinders. Perhaps Mother Nature was prescient, anticipating the upcoming volcanic reaction by Osorno Catholics to the appointment of the much despised and discredited Bishop Juan Barros by Pope Francis in March 2015.

Archbishop Chaput has just come out with pastoral guidelines for the implementation of Amoris Laetitia (AL) in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. The guidelines unswervingly maintain the Church’s bimillenial discipline precluding the admission to Confession and Holy Communion of public adulterers who divorce and civilly “remarry” and decline to cease their adulterous sexual relations:
Imagine that Germany had won the second World War. The Nazis have assumed power not only throughout Europe but, effectively, throughout the entire world, because no viable superpower remains with the motive or the means to oppose the ascendant and, by now, somewhat satiated ideology.
All youth are Hitler Youth; all hospitals are Nationally Socialized. No class in any university contains content except what the Party wants taught, and no civil servant can issue a marriage license that would not survive its scrutiny. Judges ignore statutory law and impose the will of the tyrants unchecked, as Roland Freisler and his confreres were doing well before the war’s end in any case. The Aryan Ideal is the universal ideal, and every avenue is cut off for those who wish effectively to oppose it.
What would be the fate of the concentration camps, in that case? They would be promptly emptied out, of course, not because the evil they harbored had been abolished, but because it had been established. Repression would have been rendered useless, in other words, obsolete.

From all corners of the universal Church, hundreds of clergy abuse survivors gathered recently at the16th Annual SNAP Conference held in Chicago describing their gut-wrenching childhoods of sexual molestation by clerics. A haunting aura dominated the conference: Pope Francis’ unwillingness to tr uly reform the Church and protect children by punishing predators and their protectors.
Is this the Pope of Mercy?

Darkness descended onto Piazza di San Pietro into the evening hours of March 13, 2013, as the successor to the resigned Benedict XVI, was introduced to the Cat holic Church.
Invited onto the balcony, a mere arm’s length from the new Pontiff, Cardinal Godfried Danneels surveyed the massive crowd during the announcement of the papal election of Jorge Bergoglio. There, on the Loggia of St. Peter’s, he stood, sending a message with his smug triumphant gaze.
