ITALIAN POLICE RAID a Catholic church and try to stop an old priest from saying Mass. You’ll never guess what this courageous priest does!
As the United States fights to fend off a medical dictatorship, Michael Matt comments on the increasingly obvious connection between this situation and the Utopian vision of the population-controlling fanatics.
In an article of April 2, 2020, a major Italian newspaper, Rome-based Il Messaggero, reports that Bellegra, a small town in the Lazio hinterland adjacent to the Sublacense area (named after its main city Subiaco) has so far not recorded any case of contagion from coronavirus, ostensibly thanks to the timely action of its mayor, Flavio Cera.
The CV phenomenon is slowly eroding every semblance of coherent cognition, leading politicos—governmental, entrepreneurial, and ecclesiastical—to equally outrageous and preposterous courses of action, which, taken individually and in isolation, seemingly border on the most despicable varieties of insidious autocratic and despotic imperatives.
CAN ANYONE HONESTLY deny the current colossal and outrageous frenzy that is enveloping the world?
Coronamania has swept over the land like some mysterious zephyr subtly and noiselessly permeating every nook and cranny of human thought—a concocted highly-imaginative fantasy absorbing both waking and non-waking hours, rendering contemplation, reflection and any other higher order cognitive activity helplessly vapid and bereft of any hoped-for, tension-relieving conclusionary cessation.

Good news! If you are infected with COVID19, a new report says you have a 98% chance of recovering from it. Why is the mainstream media not reporting the good news?
In this Special Edition of ‘From the Editor’s Desk’, Michael Matt asks the question we all want answered: Yes the virus is deadly, but won’t euthanizing the U.S. economy be even deadlier?

Priest Calls On Faithful Catholics To Pray Today
From the parking lot on Good Friday, Father calls on faithful Catholics to, in cooperation with Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano's urgent plea to the world's bishops and priests to pray the exorcism of Pope Leo XIII today, to join our shepherds in praying a Rosary and the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel today, Holy Saturday.
In the middle of the national lock down, let us thank God that some of our priests and bishops are refusing to abandon us. Like St. John, they would stay with the followers of Jesus Christ all the way to the foot of the Cross.
History and Scripture show that ever since Adam and Eve men tend to want a God cut down to their own size: a God fashioned in their own likeness. What they don’t want is a God of infinite perfection who asks them to rise above themselves, above concupiscence and self-love, and strive to be perfect, even as their heavenly Father is perfect.
Men who have a strong tendency to be this way are likely to have difficulty also with the mystery of the Incarnation. Their hearts find it intolerable that an Infinite God should so love the world as to give His only-begotten Son to die in torments for love of us. You understand that what makes this intolerable is the implied obligation of making a like return of love; of putting off the “old Adam” and conforming oneself to Christ the new Adam.
URGENT GLOBAL PRESS RELEASE
ON OCTOBER 13, 1884, Leo XIII had a terrible vision of the assault of the powers of Hell against Holy Mother Church, and ordered the prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel to be said at the end of Mass. He also composed an Act of Exorcism and ordered it to be inserted into the Roman Ritual, and explicitly mentioned what he had seen: “The Church, the Spouse of the Immaculate Lamb, has been filled with bitterness and inebriated with poison by her crafty enemies, who have laid impious hands on her most sacred possessions. In the place where the See of Holy Peter and the Chair of Truth has been set up as the light of the world, they have raised the throne of their abominable impiety, with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck, the sheep may be scattered.”
In these modern times of terrible tribulation, when the pandemic has deprived Catholics of Holy Mass and the Sacraments, the Evil One has gone into a frenzy and multiplied his attacks to tempt souls into sin. These blessed days of Holy Week, which used to be the ideal time to go to Confession to prepare ourselves for our Easter Communion, now see us locked inside our houses, but they cannot stop us praying to Our Lord.
Mass on Mt. Suribachi, Iwo Jima, then... closed churches now?
Editor's Note: On this Wednesday in Holy Week, I'd like to dedicate the following article to all the heroic priests in the world today who are defying the fearmongers of secularism by finding a way to keep the sacramental life of the Church active in the lives of faithful Catholics. The present crisis is sustained by fear. Fear is crippling. Fear causes men to become weak and easily controlled. Karl Marx was wrong. Religion is not the "opium of the masses" but rather the thing that makes us who we are and gives life its deepest meaning and most profound purpose. Men like Marx could not compete with religion and so they mocked it and suggested it is only meaningful for the unenlightened and oppressed masses who have nothing else. But they were wrong.
A hundred years later, atheism has shown itself to be the dark place where Hope goes to die. In the face of true religion, even the most ruthless state is powerless to oppress the people. If the good priests stand with their flocks today--if the consolation of the Sacraments is maintained--then the very worst potential of this suffocating global shutdown can be kept at bay. To our bishops, then, let us desperately send this message here in Holy Week:

In the middle of the #COVID19 pandemic, many Catholic bishops and priests locked the faithful out of their own churches, bowing to the state's decision that the Sacraments are 'non-essential' services.
Some brave priests have refused to abandon their flocks. Here in St. Paul, Minnesota, for example, one priest is making sure his congregation is not deprived of the great consolation of Holy Mother Church during this dark moment in human history.
“YOU HAVE SAID SO”
“Truly, I say to you, one of you will betray me.”
And they were very sorrowful, and began to say to him one after another,
“Is it I, Lord?” He answered, “He who has dipped his hand in the dish with me, will betray me.
The Son of man goes as it is written of him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed!
It would have been better for that man if he had not been born.”
Judas, who betrayed him, said, “Is it I, Master?”
He said to him, “You have said so.”
Mt 26, 20-25
On March 25, the 2020 Pontifical Yearbook was published with a real novelty. It may seem like a typographical trifle, in the part dedicated to the reigning pontiff, but this is not the case. Until last year, in fact, Francis’s titles were listed at the top of the page, beginning with “Vicar of Christ”, “Successor of the Prince of the Apostles” etc., and ending with his birth name and a very brief biography.

Panic kills. So let's kill panic before panic kills us.
Ready for some good news? Tom Hanks has not only recovered but is back in the States and doing just fine. Given how much media attention was given to his testing positive for COVID-19, we wonder why more media attention isn't being paid to his recovery.
Is it going to be "the sky is falling" and "it's the end of the world" for the rest of the summer? What's going on here?
