Vatican Sex Abuse Summit in Rome

Vatican Sex Abuse Summit in Rome (0)

RTV Covers Vatican Sex Abuse Summit in Rome

Remnant TV was in Rome this past week covering the Vatican’s clerical sexual abuse summit on the “protection of minors”. It seemed a dismal assignment, to be sure, but the reason it was necessary for The Remnant to be in the Eternal City was so we could throw in with our traditional Catholic allies in Rome who’d organized an act of formal resistance to the Vatican sham summit.

Going in, we all knew that the ultimate goal of the summit was to establish child abuse—not rampant homosexuality in the priesthood—as the main cause of a crisis in the Catholic Church which now rivals that of the Protestant Revolt. (Remnant TV coverage of this event as well as the Vatican summit itself, can be found on The Remnant’s YouTube channel, and for your convenience is laid out below:

This just in from LifeSiteNews.com: "In a recent article for the Italian news platform “Corrispondenza Romana”, renowned Catholic philosopher Josef Seifert strongly criticizes Pope Francis for statements in his recent Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia.Seifert, a longtime ordinary member of the Pontifical Academy for Life and a close associate of St. John Paul II, explains that he criticizes the document because instead of invoking joy – as stated in the exhortation title – the papal document would actually make Jesus and his mother cry.

"Many of the passages which seem merciful turn the teachings of the Church on their heads, according to Seifert. “In my opinion, they risk an avalanche of consequences which would be very harmful to the Church and to souls." READ ARTICLE HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: Pope Francis is fast running out of defenders anywhere outside of the liberal Left, the Hollwood elite, the Democratic Party and the radical progressivists inside the Church. Anyone claiming to be Catholic and still making excuses for this disastrous pontificate is either malicious or downright stupid.

Says Seifert: “How can Jesus and His most holy Mother read and link these words of the Pope with those of Jesus Himself and of His Church without crying?"

Indeed, if you love the Church you must weep with Jesus over what is happening now, and recognize the fundamental responsibility of all faithful Catholics to oppose Pope Franics and to, like Dr. Seifert, publicly resist his myriad errors and his public scandal.  


On Saturday, 4 June 2016, in a historic ceremony sponsored by the Knights of Columbus Woodlawn Council 2161, the City of Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, was solemnly consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

The consecration was performed by the pastors of the three Catholic parishes located in Aliquippa, and the mayor. READ FULL REPORT HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: Most Sacred Heart of Jesus,have mercy on us. Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.

Viva Cristo Rey!


This just in from our friends at CFN regarding the semon preached at the SSPX ordinations in Winona last week: "Bishop de Galarreta alluded to today’s gestures of the Ecclesia Dei Commission concerning normalization of the SSPX wherein the Fraternity is supposedly no longer expected to accept those points of the Council the SSPX has always resisted, such as religious liberty, ecumenism and the New Mass. This new framework for normalization is what Msgr. Pozzo, head of the Ecclesia Dei commission, had related to Bishop Fellay.

"But, according to Bishop de Galarrata, 'Francis corrected Pozzo.'

"This is the first I heard of any such correction, and various priests I subsequently questioned were not aware of it either (I did not see Bishop de Galarreta after the ordination ceremony). Perhaps the bishop was referring to Pope Francis’ interview with La Croix wherein Francis said regarding the establishment of a Personal Prelature for SSPX: “That would be a possible solution but beforehand it will be necessary to establish a fundamental agreement with them. The Second Vatican Council has its value. We will advance slowly and patiently.”

"Bishop de Galarrata then commented on recent remarks from Ludwig Cardinal Müller, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (who is the hierarchical superior of Mgr. Pozzo) wherein the Cardinal indicated that he expects the SSPX to accept Vatican II in its totality. "READ JOHN VENNARI'S ARTICLE HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: Is the Bishop suggesting that the normalization of the SSPX may not be quite as imminent as it had appeared to be some weeks ago? We look forward to reading the entire transcript, once it is released by the SSPX.  

And lest Bishop de Galarrata's words should be deemed overly harsh by some, we would point out that they put us in mind of sentiments expressed by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre nearly three decades ago, when the situation in Rome was not nearly as dire as it is today:

“The proposal of Cardinal Ratzinger even if you conceded to us a Bishop, even some autonomy for the bishops, even if you concede us the whole liturgy of 1962, even if you allow us to continue the seminary and the Fraternity as it is working now, we will not collaborate. It’s impossible, impossible because we work in the diametrically opposite directions. You work to the de-Christianization of society and the Church and of the human person. We work for Christianization. And so it is illogical. Rome has lost the Faith, my dear friend. Rome is in Apostasy. I do not speak empty works, only that I tell you the truth. Rome is in apostasy. You cannot have confidence in them. Rome has left the Church; they have left the Church. It’s sure, it is certain.”Listen to



The question many concerned friends of the SSPX are asking now is: What has changed since 1987 when these words were spoken, other than that that situation in Rome has become so much worse. Was Archbishop Lefebvre perhaps hasty in in 1988 and lacking in due prudence and patience, or was he right not to trust Rome farther than he could throw Rome? That is the question, I suppose, on the minds of tens of thousands just now. Please pray for Bishops de Galarrata, Fellay and the entire Society of St. Pius X which just now if faced with potentially history-changing decisions.

This from mlive.com, "With actress Melissa Gilbert withdrawing from Michigan's 8th Congressional race, Democrats are out a candidate just months before the election and face an even tougher uphill climb in what's been a solidly Republican district.

"Late Tuesday evening, Gilbert said head and neck injuries from two accidents in 2012 forced her to drop out of the race against incumbent Rep. Mike Bishop, R-Rochester. Democratic sources said Michigan's Democratic congressional delegation met Tuesday to talk about replacement candidates." READ ARTICLE HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: Gee, that's too bad, Half Pint!

Maybe next time Melissa Gilbert (who played Laura on Little House) will think twice before putting her liberal loser tripe up against a pro-life, pro-family, pro-marriage conservative who actually cares about the common good and the lives of the unborn.

U.S. Rep. Mike Bishop, Gilbert's Republican opponent, is 100% pro-life and with no exceptions.  Melissa "Half Pint" Gilbert, on the other hand, is a radical abortion rights activist whose short-lived political run was supported by some of the fiercest abortion advocates in America.

According to LifeSiteNews, Gilbert even “consulted with radical abortion advocate EMILY's List, which supports only pro-abortion candidates. EMILY's List is infamous for going even farther than most abortion activists by actually advocating for the infanticide procedure known as partial-birth abortion."

It seems like anything and everything Hollywood touches eventually comes to embrace the dark side. ‘Little House on the Prairie’, leaving aside the schmaltz on steroids, was as pro-family as American primetime TV ever got.  It’ll be a cold day in hell, in fact, before we'll ever see the likes of it again. 

But now it seems that even that fleeting spark of televised innocence is under demonic assault, 30 years after Michael Landon blew up Walnut Grove—with its cute little child star now running around advocating for the slaughter of unborn (and partial-born) babies in and out of their mothers’ wombs.

How twisted, demented and sad our 'enlightened' society has become. God help us, what a mess!   

This from i09.gizmodo.com: "Thousands of people last week discovered that Amazon had quietly removed electronic copies of George Orwell's 1984 from their Kindle e-book readers. In the process, Amazon revealed how easy censorship will be in the Kindle age.

"In this case, the mass e-book removals were motivated by copyright . A company called MobileReference, who did not own the copyrights to the books 1984 and Animal Farm, uploaded both books to the Kindle store and started selling them. When the rights owner heard about this, they contacted Amazon and asked that the e-books be removed. And Amazon decided to erase them not just from the store, but from all the Kindles where they'd been downloaded. Amazon operators used the Kindle wireless network, called WhisperNet, to quietly delete the books from people's devices and refund them the money they'd paid.

"An uproar followed, with outraged customers pointing out the irony that Amazon was deleting copies of a novel about a fascist media state that constantly alters history by changing digital records of what has happened." READ ARTICLE HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: This story was sent to us by a Remnant subscriber who attached the simple note: "Michael: Please keep The Remnant on paper."  Indeed, maintaining The Remnant's print-edition is an extremely costly and time-consuming endeavor. In fact, it is hands down the most expensive arm of our apostolate, and makes little sense from a modern business model point of view.

But, as we see it, The Remnant needs to do two things: Take into account those who as a matter of principle avoid the Internet (especially older readers who prefer newsprint), and also anticipate an uncertain future on the Internet in which all things Christian may well become illegal hate speech. We have no intention of placing our ability to communicate with the worldwide remnant and to defend the Christian family and the Kingship of Christ entirely in the hands of the lords of the Internet, whoever or whatever they might be now or in the future.

Please pray for us, that we will be able to maintain The Remnant in both its print- and e-edition.  And if you have not yet subscribed to The Remnant, please help us by doing so today:

This just in from NCR: "Pope Francis’ visit to Lund, Sweden, to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation will comprise “two parts” beginning with a “common prayer” service in Lund's Lutheran cathedral and continuing with a public event at Malmö Arena that will be open to wider participation, Vatican and Lutheran leaders have announced.

"In a joint statement issued today by the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) and the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, they reiterated that the Oct. 31 event will be centered on the themes of “thanksgiving, repentance and commitment to common witness".

It also said the overall aim of the ecumenical event “is to express the gifts of the Reformation and ask forgiveness for division perpetuated by Christians from the two traditions.” READ ARTICLE HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: Ah, yes, the 'gifts of the Reformation' -- such as the tearing in half of holy Christendom. The beginning of the end of the Holy Roman Empire. The destruction of the Catholic state. The loss of millions of souls who fell victim to the vile heresies of Martin Luther.

And let's not forget to ask forgiveness for the great saints who gave their lives in defense of Holy Mother Church under vicious assault of Protestant 'reformers.' Thomas More, for example, used the Greek term “anarchos” to describe the Protestant Revolt. He believed that the “whole great change of European consciousness in the sixteenth century was due to the hatred that they [Protestants] bear to all good order and the great hunger they have to make [everything] disordered.”

You see, poor Thomas More didn't think 'making a mess' was a particularly good idea. He regarded Lutherans as “daemonun satellites” (“agents of demons”), in fact, who had to be stopped before they brought civilized society to ruin.

In his book, The Life of Thomas More, Peter Akroyd explains: "
This was no longer a time for questioning, or innovation, or uncertainty of any kind. He [More] blamed Luther for the Peasants’ Revolt in Germany, and maintained that all its havoc and destruction were the direct result of Luther’s challenge to the authority of the church; under the pretext of “libertas” Luther preached “licentia,” which had in turn led to rape, sacrilege, bloodshed, fire and ruin."

And why not? Of the Mass of his own priestly ordination, beloved liturgy of his fathers and forefathers, saints and martyrs, for a thousand years, Luther hisses: "I declare that all the brothels…all the manslaughters, murders, thefts and adulteries have wrought less abomination than the popish Mass."

This from one who, by his own admission, was “inspired”—while on his toilet, no less—with the certainty that the Church was the great Whore of Babylon, that four of her seven Sacraments were abominations, as were her priesthood, celibacy, papacy and monastic life. On his toilet, Luther figured it out—all that’s needed is Faith alone…and the laws of Christianity be damned!

“Be a sinner and sin on bravely,” said Luther, “but have stronger faith and rejoice in Christ, who is the victory of sin, death, and the world. Do not for a moment imagine that this life is the abiding place of justice: sin must be committed… sin cannot tear you away from Him, even though you commit adultery a hundred times a day and commit as many murders.”
  
Compare these words to similar ones written by the Satanist Aleister Crowley: "
Are we walking in eternal fear lest some 'sin' should cut us off from 'grace'? By no means…Live as the kings and princes, crowned and uncrowned, of this world, have always lived, as masters always live… make your self-indulgence your religion…When you drink and dance and take delight, you are not being 'immoral,' you are not 'risking your immortal soul'; you are fulfilling the precepts of our holy religion [Satanism]…Is not this better than [to] go oppressed by consciousness of 'sin,' wearily seeking or simulating wearisome and tedious 'virtues'?"

Protestantism, Satanism, Freemasonry—these were but brothers-in-arms in the ancient war against the holy Church, a war fomented by agents of disorder. Even some of Luther’s friends readily admitted that the “Reformation” was anarchistic.

For example, the ex-priest Martin Bucer, who’d benefited from Luther’s moral dispensations where an ex-nun and his vows were concerned, nevertheless admits: "T
he whole Reformation was one grand indulgence for libertinism. The greater part of the people seems only to have embraced the gospel in order to shake off the yoke of discipline and the obligation of fasting and penance, which rested upon them in popery, and that they may live according to their own pleasure, enjoying their lusts and lawless appetites without control. That was the reason they lent a willing ear to the teaching of justification by faith alone and not by good works, for the latter of which they had no relish."

It is no wonder that Erasmus (who also advocated reform) would write: “Lutheranism has but two objects at heart—money and women.”

And now Pope Francis is heading off to Sweden to commemorate what Martin Bucer called 'one grand indulgence for libertinism" and St. Thomas More condemned as the demonic project of the Antichrist himself -- the Protestant Revolt.

God help us, what is the matter with this man!

Dear Mr. Matt:

Thank you for your greetings. I wrote an answer to The Remnant‘s Open Letter, which I send to you in the attachment and you can publish. God bless abundantly you and your apostolate for the Catholic faith. With cordial greetings in Jesus and Mary,

+ Athanasius Schneider


Dear Mr. Christopher A. Ferrara:
On May 9, 2016 you published on “The Remnant” website an open letter to me regarding the question of the Apostolic Exhortation “Amoris laetitia”.

As a bishop, I am grateful and at the same time encouraged to receive from a Catholic layman such a clear and beautiful manifestation of the “sensus fidei” regarding the Divine truth on marriage and the moral law.

“All the kindly statements made on the Mass from Rome console old folks for whom the reforms of the Council came "too fast" and sometimes with unnecessary "insensitivity – but no one has said the reforms were wrong. They have refused to face the issue, – which is not nostalgia on the part of-those "who feel close to some older liturgical forms," but the shipwreck of the Catholic Church. I mean a new Mass, a new catechism, a new morality, a flagrantly mistranslated Bible, an architecture and music which constitute a thoroughly orchestrated and rehearsed attack on Catholic doctrine and practice.” - John Senior

Editor’s Note: The following is Chapter 5 of the late great Dr. John Senior’s book “The Remnants: The Final Essays of John Senior.” The book is available from The Remnant but this particular chapter seems particularly apropos at this time. May the incomparable Dr. Senior rest in peace, and if our good God has seen fit to lead his faithful servant into paradise already, may John Senior intercede for us all and help us to keep the old Faith he himself defended so well while on this earth. MJM

These hasty notes document a state of mind and soul (in anguish) in the days between the consecrations at Ecône, the threat of excommunication hanging over us who attend Mass at Society of Pius X Chapels, and the Sunday coming up. I am anxious to hear the opinions of those more knowledgeable, especially of Walter Matt, the best Catholic journalist in America, Michael Davies in England, Jean Madiran in France, and Dom Gerard of Le Barroux.

What? Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Where? St. George Byzantine Catholic Church 1001 Clinton Street, Aliquippa PA 15001 FULL RELEASE HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: The reason more good things don't happen, and evil is allowed to triumph nearly everywhere today--is that too many good men do nothing. Hats off to our friends in Aliquippa for not doing nothing.

Imagine what would happen if we all arranged ceremonies and TLMs to consecrate our hometowns to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Imagine that!  Well, what are we waiting for?
