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:View items...

“Seven times a day have I given praise to thee, for the judgments of thy justice.”
A short time ago I was talking to a friend, a traditional Catholic, who asked me this question, and I was a bit surprised. It’s not that she’d never heard of it but that she had mostly only heard the name and references to it, without ever having actually heard an explanation. And, of course, being about my age, she had never come across any actual use of the Church’s “other” liturgical practice in the normal course of her parish life. I realised that a person who had never had much contact with the monastic religious who use it (rare in these dark times) could go their whole life never see the Divine Office and could be confused by the profusion of terminology used to describe it.

REMNANT COMMENT: Viva Cristo Rey, queridos hermanos y hermanas católicos en Argentina. ¡Mantener la fe!
Happy New Year! First, the good news: the world didn’t end in 2017. We’re still here, and unless something cataclysmic happens in the next few hours, we're evidently to be spared our much-deserved Divine chastisement...at least this year.
The bad news? We Catholics still have the leadership we deserve. The newly christened ‘dictator pope’ may have started at the bottom but over the course of 2017 he seems to have found a way to go down. In fact, his papal expedition to theological La La Land has its sights set on October 2018--the much dreaded Synod of Young People.
So, to the prediction: I predict that before this New Year comes to an end, Pope Francis and his band of merry men will—either directly or indirectly—find a way to give at least tacit approval of so-called “gay unions”.
New from REMNANT TV...
When even more conservative bishops such as Alexander Sample find it necessary to partner with Evangelical outfits such as the 'non-denominational' ministry, ‘Young Life, to try to get disenfranchised Catholic kids to come back to the Church, it's obvious there's a big problem.
Just 50 years after Vatican II the Catholic world has lost its Catholic identity to such an extent that the bishops are reduced to consulting non-Catholic ministries to help them stop the hemorrhaging of Catholic young people out of the Church. One wonders if a non-denominational Protestant partnership can help resolve problems caused by a largely Protestantized Catholic liturgy. But there is a Catholic alternative that is working and that is taking root all over the world.
Trump's Christmas message includes an excerpt from the Bible, and an acknowledgement that Christ is the most important gift of Christmas, and "the true source of our hope".
REMNANT COMMENT: Beautiful! Take that, militant secularist haters!
Once again, President Donald Trump either truly means these words, or he’s being political. If he means them, then praise God. If he's being political, even better since that means the President of the United States is now convinced that siding with Chirstians and offering fulsome words of praise of Jesus Christ may well help him win a second term. Either way, Christians win. Either way, Christophobes lose. Either way, God bless Donald Trump!
“You have come to us as a small child, but you have brought us the greatest of all gifts, the gift of eternal love. Caress us with your tiny hands, embrace us with your tiny arms, and pierce our hearts with your soft, sweet cries. Amen.” – A Christmas Prayer by St. Bernard of Clairvaux
On this Christmas Eve in the year of Our Lord 2017, I would like to wish Remnant friends and allies all around the world a happy and holy Christmas. I’d also like to share a little good news that is happening over at Remnant TV (RTV) that’s bound to help spread some Christmas cheer.
Those familiar with our work at RTV will know that we’ve been at it only for a few years and that, for the most part, it’s a labor of love serving a small niche market. Fifty thousand views on YouTube, for example, is a very successful RTV program. We don’t have any cute kittens and we’re a little short on Justin Bieber interviews-- so viral videos for us are neither anticipated nor particularly sought after.

A Christmas Truce at the World War I Front
Editor’s Note: This article was published in The Remnant in 2006 after having first appeared on the Your Guide to 20th Century History website. It is reproduced here with the permission of the author. The original song by John McCutcheon is well worth listening to as you read this incredible story from a day and age not so very far removed from our own but, alas, fading in every way from the consciousness of "grown up" and "enlightened" men who've lost sight of God, Country and even who and what they are anymore-- much less the true meaning of Christmas.

Editor's Note: Each year around Christmastime we post this short, personal Christmas reflection, which offers an alternative custom to the celebration of the great Feast. I wrote it some years ago (before the last two children came along), and every year since I receive email from new visitors to this site gently chastising The Remnant for not posting it earlier in Advent so as to allow time for families to adopt as their own some of the customs herein suggested. Over the years many Catholic families have adopted the old Christ Child tradition, believing it to be a beautiful means of restoring the true meaning of Christmas while strengthening Catholic identity in children. And it can be gradually implemented, of course. Christmas is all about midnight and Christmas Eve and the Christ Child. And a truly happy, holy and merry Christmas remains forever predicated on careful observance of Advent. No Christmas trees, no lights, no good things to eat until December 25, when the time of waiting comes to an end and all of Christendom rejoices over an event so magnificent even a two-year-old will never forget it. Christ is to be born--and the world, the flesh and the Devil will never change that reality, no matter how hard they try. Happy Holidays? Yeah, right! A fruitful Advent and Merry Christmas to all visitors to this site. MJM
"...a Vatican official with strong ties to LGBT activists has hired an openly homosexualist digital marketing company to design and manage the Holy See's new internet news service. The company, Accenture, is famous worldwide for promoting the homosexual political agenda, winning awards for being the top “gay friendly” employer, and producing videos proposing
Accenture maintains an entire webpage of LGBT “pride” materials and a library of twelve LGBT videos on its website promoting homosexual “inclusion” in its company and in society in general. The company’s enthusiasm for pushing homosexuality was great enough to earn it the award for the most “gay friendly” company in all of Britain in 2013, and for being Ireland’s “best LGBT workplace” in 2016.
The company even signed a brief supporting the homosexual plaintiffs in the Obergefell vs. Hodges decision of the U.S. Supreme Court, which forced all fifty states to recognize gay “marriage.” It also contributes money to the “Human Rights Campaign,” an American gay lobbying organization which has in turn given the company a 100 percent pro-homosexual rating... “We’re basically shaping and reshaping the way they are communicating,” Accenture Interactive Italy’s head, Alessandro Diana, told Adweek magazine.
“We are launching the last part of the reform sought by Pope Francis. Each reform does not originate from a mistaken past but from a present that calls for a change: in this case, today’s cultural and digital convergence require the adoption of production processes that are different from traditional ones,” said Monsignor Dario Edoardo Viganò, Prefect of the Vatican’s Secretariat for Communications.
“The collaboration with Accenture Interactive, thanks to their solid global experience, has allowed us to develop an extensive strategy capable of uniting various working groups, the diversification of formats and the strengthening of brand identity -- all while maximizing the value of our talented in-house professionals working in the Holy See media.”
According to Diana, Accenture was not involved in any process of soliciting the contract. Rather Vatican officials approached Accenture of their own accord..."
