Vatican Sex Abuse Summit in Rome

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:

These are tumultuous times, both inside and outside the Church, no doubt about it.  It is unsurprising therefore that among some of the faithful there is a growing interest in the end times and Catholic prophecy.

Spend just a few minutes on Catholic social media and you will see faithful who run the gamut from viewing today’s events as humdrum growing pains in the age of the Church, to those who seem convinced that the Parousia is just around the corner.  Further, you will see well-meaning faithful getting caught up in messages of some modern-day apparition of a self-proclaimed messenger of God.  Some Catholics, realizing the problems to which an uncritical approach to prophecy can easily lead, reject all or most prophecy rather than risk going down that particular rabbit-hole.

THE HOLY SPIRIT, SOUL OF THE MISSION

Under the patronage of all Christian martyrs, past and present

The infant Church rose from the blood of martyrs. Christ’s ultimate sacrifice was the standard to which countless courageous men and women held themselves. Their sacrifices were a great boon to the early Church; through the merits of her martyrs, Rome – the site of some of the world’s most vicious Christian persecutions – transfigured into the very heart and soul of a mature and powerful Christendom.  Today the saga continues; Christians in the Middle East die each day for their convictions, and their deaths cannot be in vain. The Pilgrimage to Chartres proves this. It unites the spirit of these champions with the Cause for which they shed their blood – the martyrs of Christendom died for that Mass, the same one celebrated before thousands with such solemn, triumphal beauty today in Notre Dame de Chartres; martyrs today die that the one true Faith might never vanish entirely from the earth. Your participation in this event, physically or spiritually, raises a cry toward Heaven which cannot but be heard there: “Look what your martyrs have won! Victory belongs to God and His Church! Thanks be to God!

THE HOLY SPIRIT AND HIS GIFTS FOR THE CHURCH

Under the patronage of Saint Pius X

St. Pius X was plucked by God from a humble childhood and entrusted with the most illustrious position on earth. This gentle saint, inclined to contemplation rather than public minstry, possessed a mighty spirit, and left to his spiritual children a thunderous legacy. This pope, a deadly enemy of Modernism, is an obvious patron of this pilgrimage, which has as its goal the return of the Church to her Traditions; the triumph of the Old Faith over the sickness that is Modernism. May the prayers and protection of this champion of Tradition be with the participants of this pilgrimage on the Feast of Pentecost!

THE HOLY SPIRIT, SPIRIT OF HOLINESS

Under the patronage of Saint Catherine of Siena

St. Catherine of Siena is the brilliant, courageous mystic who defied a pope, weathered the Great Schism, and spent the last half of her life in Rome, desperately working toward the restoration of the Church. Her story, in this last respect, reminds us of our own; we strive every day toward the restoration of Tradition; of the true Church of Rome, the home we can’t help but love. Her spirit is no doubt with the pilgrims and their sponsors and prayer warriors during the most important annual event happening in the Church today. St. Catherine was not content with simply biding the times; she called for action, begging the faithful to “cry out with a hundred thousand tongues! I see that the world is rotten because of silence.” At least fifteen thousand are heeding her words today, as they show to a languishing world the force and vigour of glorious Old Christendom. “Be who God meant you to be, and you will set the world on fire!” Hardly a truer statement. St. Catherine, pray for us!

 

Today from Vatican Insider: In the Gospel, “Jesus reminds us that one does not live in the house of the Lord because they expect a reward but because they have the dignity of co-responsible children. It is not about “bartering” with God but following Jesus who gave his life unconditionally on the cross.” At today’s Audience in St. Peter’s Square, Pope Francis continued a series of catecheses dedicated to the Jubilee theme of mercy, explaining the parable of the “merciful father”, better known as the parable of the prodigal son...

 “Let us begin from the end, from the joy in the heart of the Father, who says: “Let us rejoice, because my son was dead and is alive again, he was lost and is found”. These were the words with which the father interrupted his youngest son when the latter was confessing his guilt: “I am no longer worthy to be called your son…” But the father’s heart found this remark unbearable and hastened to give the symbols of his son’s dignity back to him: beautiful clothes, a ring, sandals. The father Jesus describes is not an offended or resentful father who says: ‘you’ll pay!’. No, on the contrary, the father embraces him; all the father cares about is that his son is there in front of him, alive and well. The scene of the son’s return is moving: “While he was still far away, his father saw him and was filled with compassion; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.” What does this mean? It means the father would constantly go up onto the terrace and look out onto the road to see if his son was coming home. He waited for him. Despite everything his son had done, he waited for him. How beautiful a father’s tenderness is…” READ ARTICLE HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: Words fail. Surely His Holiness realizes the difference here is that the prodigal son came home. He ceased being 'prodigal' and admits to his sins. The Year of Mercy seems to be sort of glossing over that part. The prodigal son doesn't really need to change all that much, it seems.  He doesn't even need to come home. He can still live with his mistress. He can be a public adulterer. It doesn't matter. He gets the fatted calf anyway.

Holy Mother Church as always been a faithful dispenser of God's mercy, long before Francis arrived on the scene. We've all been forgiven in Confession. We've all wept with gratitude over God's great mercy. All that was ever required of us His wayward children was to make some effort to stop sinning and to repent. Demanding Mercy without repentance is a blasphemy against God.

The parable is called 'The Prodigal Son', Your Holiness, not the 'The Liberal Father.'

U.S. Chapter, Chartres, 2009

- Video Updates every day on The Remnant Facebook Page

The Remnant’s team here in the States is bound for France this week. God willing, we will once again be walking with our traditional Catholic brothers from all over the world on the grand Pentecost Pilgrimage of Notre-Dame de Chrétienté to Chartres.

I ask readers to please keep their 70 fellow American pilgrims in their prayers as we once again attempt the 3-day pilgrimage across France. The now 25-year-old U.S. Chapter of Our Lady of Guadalupe will remember all of the readers of The Remnant in their prayers every day on the road to Chartres.

with foreign chapter leaders (including Michael Matt and John Rao)


Your Excellency:


To your everlasting credit, but to the Church’s everlasting shame, you alone among the entire Catholic episcopacy have protested publicly and forthrightly against the many statements in Amoris Laetitia (AL), particularly in Chapter 8, which appear to derogate from the negative precepts of the natural law, including those against divorce, adultery and fornication. By the divine will, these precepts, as Your Excellency writes, “are universally valid… oblige each and every individual, always and in every circumstance” and “forbid a given action semper et pro semper, without exception” because they concern “kinds of behaviour which can never, in any situation, be a proper response.”

Thanks to the tireless efforts of our French friends, Yves and Brigitte Guigueno, the worldwide Guardian Angels Chapter will be forming once again during this weekend’s Chartres Pilgrimage in France, and you’re invited to take part.

The “Guardian Angels” Chapter refers to real human beings who can’t be physically present during the three Pentecost days but want to be present spiritually, and nonetheless truly, at the Chartres Pilgrimage.

How is it possible to go on the Chartres pilgrimage in this way?

ROME, May 9, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) -- Over 100 pro-life and pro-family leaders from all over the world leapt to their feet in applause at a meeting in Rome on Saturday after hearing a call for Pope Francis to withdraw his controversial exhortation Amoris Laetitia.

John Smeaton, co-founder of Voice of the Family and the CEO of the UK Society for the Protection of Unborn Children, issued the request to the Pope in his keynote address at the annual Rome Life Forum.

Smeaton spoke following Bishop Athanasius Schneider, who in his speech decried growing confusion in the Church, and who has previously expressed grave concerns about the exhortation. FULL ARTICLE HERE

REMANNT COMMENT: Pope Francis is either intentionally attempting to undermine the Church's infallible teachings on faith or morals, or he is inadvertently doing so. We see no other option. He's either a very bad man, or an utterly incompetent pope. Take your pick.

forteJorge & Bruno

Archbishop Bruno Forte, Pope Bergoglio’s handpicked Special Secretary for both sessions of the Phony Synod, is a supremely arrogant man. For only supreme arrogance could explain his reported insertion into the midterm report of Phony Synod 2014 (with Francis’s full approval) those infamous statements about “valuing” the “homosexual orientation” and recognizing that “homosexual unions” can provide “precious support in the life of the partners” as they habitually engage in sodomy.
