Among the many highlights of this new Print/E-edition of The Remnant--including Chorbishop Anthony Spinosa's blockbuster CIC2019 address, "Putting On The Armor of God"--we're pleased to present Theresa Moreau's "They Kept the Faith: The Yann Billot Story."

Lots of good stuff, rounded out by a most amusing The Last Word, wherein Father Celatus fantasizes about what he'd do if he were pope for a day. Here's a pictorial hint:
God bless, and thanks for your continued support of The Remnant.
