Remnant Articles

 Putting Catholic Answers back into the spotlight, apologists Tim Staples and Patrick Coffin hosted again the topic of “Radical Traditionalism” during the evening of August 12th. For all intents and purposes, this re-run was damage control, as back in May, the two hosts managed (during their previous same-titled show) to offend every type of Catholic who attends the traditional Mass, whether out of preference or doctrinal conviction.

Although raised Catholic I spent the majority of my high school and college days supporting women’s rights and defending the pro-choice movement. Then I met my husband. On one of our first dates we drove down to Chicago from Milwaukee to shop, eat, and attend mass at the Cathedral.

Somehow the topic of abortion came up and I very clearly stated my opinion of how it is the woman’s right to choose. My future husband looked at me, a bit surprised but obviously angry. My stomach swirled and I glanced out at Lake Michigan behind his frustrated glare. Not only did I fear our short-lived relationship had already ended, but I was trapped in the car with him and we were almost to Chicago. I didn’t think I could face a severely awkward two-hour drive back.

Over the past fifty years we have witnessed a new and surprising vernacular liturgy (concocted under the supervision of a suspected Mason who was suddenly sacked and sent off to Iran by a horrified Paul VI); a new and surprising “collegiality”; a new and surprising “ecumenism”; a new and surprising “dialogue” and “interreligious dialogue; and even a new and surprising approval of altar girls. The result has been a less than surprising collapse of faith and discipline in the Church. Yet, after a half-century of disorienting novelty in the Church, Dr. Jeff Mirus informs us that we have not had enough in the new and surprising department.  We must allow the “Holy Spirit” to move us in still more “new and surprising ways.”

Pope Makers and Cardinal Sins

Written by

ROME, March 12, 2013, www.RemnantNewspaper.com  – The waiting time is drawing to a close. This afternoon, the cardinals will have their first ballot. Starting last Wednesday, the cardinals agreed that their discussions will be continued under greater secrecy. This means that we are left to examine the evidence and facts we already know to piece together, if not the outcome of the conclave, then at least the issues looming in the minds of the cardinal electors.

On that day it was announced that the press conferences organised at the Pontifical North American College, up the hill from St. Peter’s, where US cardinals were giving politely evasive and non-specific non-information to US and British journalists, had been cancelled. It came out that the reason was that some Italian cardinals, whose interpretation of the oath of secrecy was a little more, shall we say, flexible, were giving Italian journalists what amounted to transcripts of the meetings.

And there we have in a nutshell a hint as to how the Vatican administration works at the highest levels: chaotically, with no very strong connections to reality.

Today at Remnant TV

Our Sunday Sermon for the Fourth Sunday in Advent tackles the question of St. John the Baptist harboring doubts that Christ was God. Did you know that? Either did Father, and yet Pope Francis seems to think he did. What do you think?

New from Remnant TV...

First, Cardinal Raymond Burke complies with the wishes of Cardinal Sarah where the liturgy is concerned with a stunning announcement.

Then, citing the thought of Dietrich von Hildebrand, Dr. William Marra and Dr. John Rao, Michael Matt answers the question: Did the Holy Ghost necessarily positively will the election of Jorge Mario Bergoglio?

And, finally: the "Great Rant of 2015". See John Rao obliterate the neo-Catholic phenomenon.

Citing post-election SPLC hate crime "findings" from the floor of the Senate, Harry Reid signaled how the loser Left plans to handle the Trump presidency: Make him a lame duck by branding him King of the Haters.

What's really behind the hate industry efforts to silence mainstream America? A declaration of war on God, Family and the Unborn. Michael Matt comments on Christophobic media bias and how it will affect the next four years.

New from Remnant TV (RTV)...

As the Four Cardinals make their historic stand against revolution in the Vatican, several bishops and one more cardinal move in to support them. Michael Matt tackles the question of what to do when a pope goes wrong. Do faithful lay Catholics have a role in stopping Pope Francis and the Modernists who put him in charge, or should the threat of causing scandal cause all of us to keep silent?

What does the Church teach? What would God have us do? Where do we go from here?


New From Remnant TV (RTV)...

As the Year of Mercy closes, Pope Francis extends permission to priests of the Society of St. Pius X to hear Confessions. But, the rumors mills were wrong. The Pope did not regularize the SSPX. Why not? Is this a good thing? Where do you come down on the "schism" of the SSPX. Michael Matt goes into why some Catholics are breathing a sigh of relief this Thanksgiving. Plus, a cameo appearance from Archbishop Lefebvre himself.

Traditional Catholics: The New Judaizers?

Father uses St. Paul’s Epistle to the Galatians and the story of Jesus and the ten lepers as foundation for his discussion of the Old Law and a pharisaical approach to the Gentiles. Is St. Paul’s anger at the Judaizers the same as the anger many critics today express against Traditional Catholics-- those they accuse of being the new Judaizers for insisting on restoring the Old Latin Mass, the old moral theology and the rest of the traditions of the Church? What do you think?              

Father speaks to First Communicants about the importance of Confession. Here's the beautiful traditional Catholic teaching so ignored by the Church of encounter, accompaniment and a dozen other meaningless buzz words.
