Remnant Articles

In April 2015, I was fortunate to make my first ever international pilgrimage to Fatima in Portugal. I only gradually became interested in the Fatima apparitions after my baptism into the Catholic Church in 2009. Over the last year or so, my conviction has grown that the Fatima message is critical for understanding current events within the Church and in the world at large. I was grateful to get a chance to travel there for a few days, and arrived with a sense of curiosity about the shrine and eagerness to experience the places that were so important for the three child seers, Jacinta, Francisco, and Lucia.

I went with limited information about the site and an open mind and heart, but also with some questions. I had heard that the shrine’s rector had allowed Hindus to worship at the Chapel of the Apparitions, and that there was a plan to turn the sanctuary into an ecumenical center. I had seen some photos online of the new Basilica of the Holy Trinity, which has a distinctly modernist esthetic. I didn’t know what to expect, but I was seeking to deepen my understanding of the Fatima message. The first thing I did after arriving was to find the Chapel of the Apparitions and pray the Rosary.

Novus Disorder in Fatima Featured

Written by
Dear, Mr Matt.

I recently had an experience I would like to share with you and my fellow Catholics. Writing this has been somewhat therapeutic for me and I pray it’s of interest to your readers.

As Catholics we are catechized with the truth that there are numerous rites of mass that all show forth the singular reality of Christ’s sacrifice. For those of us who are Latin rite Catholics we are told the Church has given us two equivalent expressions of the Sacred Mysteries. By expressions I am referring to the Tridentine rite of Mass and the Novus Ordo rite of Mass. It has been my experience that these two rites do not necessarily demonstrate an equivalent expression of the Sacred Mysteries, but expressions that are at times antagonistic. It was this antagonism in worship that I recently witnessed.

(Pope Francis, UN Sec-Gen Ban Ki Moon, and Jeffrey Sachs)

Under the rubric of Sustainable Development Goals, the United Nations, in conjunction with the Obama Administration, has co-opted the Vatican to embrace a global environmental agenda which at its core promotes actions which are antithetical to Catholic moral teaching


Powerful winds are blowing through St. Peter’s Square, setting up the perfect storm. Indeed, the climate is drastically changing in Vatican City as the world awaits Pope Francis’ environment encyclical. Behind the scenes of St. Peter’s, forces are at play to create a very problematic document influenced, and partly written, by rabid opponents of Catholic moral teaching..

An Unholy Alliance Featured

Written by
High-profile pro-abortion population control "experts" were invited to the Vatican last week to speak at a conference on climate change, the subject of Pope Francis's new encyclical.

At the conclusion of the conference, world leaders issued a statement in which they declared that decisive action to deal with climate change is “a moral and religious imperative for humanity”.
With the sudden passing of Father Gruner, it seems appropriate to reassert the importance of the Fatima message and predictions.  First off, Catholics must put aside the mistaken belief that God has already punished the world for its many crimes many decades ago when everything about our Catholic Church was so much stronger than it is today. We believe Fatima's "unknown light in the sky" is yet to come

 “You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end; but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the reign of Pius XI. When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign given you by God that He is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father.” ~The Queen of Heaven to Lucia dos Santos, July 13, 1917.

“Your Excellency is not unaware that a few years ago God manifested that sign, which astronomers chose to call an aurora borealis. I do not know, but it seems to me that if they examine the form in which it appeared it could not possibly have been an aurora borealis. Be that as it may, God made use of this to make me understand that His justice was about to strike the guilty nations.” (Emphasis added) ~ Sister Lucia dos Santos, Third Memoir to her Bishop written on August 31, 1941.

We have just heard from our good friend, John Vennari of Catholic Family News, that the great Father Nicholas Gruner died suddenly today of apparent heart failure. We  are shocked and saddened beyond words, and I ask the readers of The Remnant to please storm heaven with prayers for the repose of the soul of this great crusader for our Lady.


I've often wondered how many people the world over would still know anything about the messages of Our Lady of Fatima in our day were it not for the tireless work of her most valiant defender, Father Gruner--her loyal priest who kept her message, warning and promises alive for the benefit of millions of souls so desperately in need of Our Lady's intercession.

Father Gruner has worked himself into an early grave in her name, and we will never forget the good and holy Fatima Priest it was our honor to call friend for so many years.


May Our Lady of Fatima intercede now for Father Gruner.  May he rest in peace.

Father Nicholas Gruner, RIP

It is perplexing that abortion and reproductive rights zealots like, UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon and Jeffrey Sachs, the Director of the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network are prominently highlighted at this Catholic Conference in anticipation of Pope Francis’ Environmental Encyclical.

Editor’s Note: Child advocate attorney and Remnant columnist, Elizabeth Yore, is taking part in the Heartland Institute’s conference in Rome this week, during the run-up to Pope Francis’s controversial encyclical on climate change. What follows is a transcript of Elizabeth’s talk at the conference in Rome yesterday. MJM

April 27, 2015, ROME, ITALY: The Heartland Institute sought my consultation, as an attorney, who has worked on international human trafficking cases and in the field of child exploitation for 30 years, most recently with Oprah Winfrey in South Africa. I am deeply troubled by the Statement issued by the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences regarding the upcoming Papal environmental conference on Tuesday, April 28, 2015.


The Pontifical Academy posits that the goal of the conference is:


"Home schooling in the United States is the necessary concomitant of a culture in which the Church is being opposed on every level of her existence and, as a consequence, given the widespread secularization in our country, home schooling is not only valuable or useful but it is absolutely necessary for the survival of the Catholic church in our country."
- Father John Hardon


A new film production company demonstrates yet another aspect of the massive cultural influence of the homeschool movement.  "In a world at war with the family, there is nothing more pro-family than the Catholic homeschool."  -  Michael J. Matt

There is an amusing investing term called a ‘dead cat bounce.’ It follows from the idea that "even a dead cat will bounce if it falls from a great height." A dead cat bounce refers to a temporary recovery from a prolonged decline followed by a continuation of the downtrend.   The dead cat bounce is a sucker’s bet.   Suckers, thinking that the worst is over and that things have reached bottom, start buying up stock. In reality, the temporary rally is caused by investors shorting the stock purchasing the worthless stock to cover long-term bets against the company creating short-term buying pressure.

In short, the suckers buy up worthless stock thinking the worst is over and the stock is on the uptrend despite the fact that all the fundamental measures should tell them otherwise.

I am a sucker who got fooled by the dead cat bounce.

Niki gave birth to their son, Blaise, hours after the accident.
