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 from the YouTube channel of our friend and ally, Michael Sestak: "On our recent return from a family vacation in Gatlinburg, I began listening in the car to Michael Matt's latest video,
  I was moved by his words and immediately told my wife that I wanted to make a condensed version of it in order to help the message reach a wider audience. 

"As I was uploading the finished video after midnight, my wife called my attention to the calendar hanging in the kitchen.  "It's May 2nd.  Look at the feast day," she said. 

"I could not believe it.  'It's the feast of St. Athanasius!'  Coincidence?  Maybe.  Regardless, I hope you enjoy the video.  And please share with your friends and family!"



REMNANT COMMENT: Many thanks, Mr. Sestak. Long live the memory of the great man-- Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre. May we never forget...

Tartuffe pik1
Despite its weakness and the qualifications that accompanied it, the criticism by Raymond Arroyo on the

was a turning point in the relationship between Pope Francis and American neo-Catholics. It is now inescapably clear that a lot of neo-Catholics are on to Pope Francis. And although, like the members of the Bush family, Pope Francis likes to play stupid, he is not. He is very, very smart. So the question arises: Who is Pope Francis and what is he up to?

There are two possibilities. The first is that Pope Francis is an agent of the Judeo-Masonic-Communist-Reptilian conspiracy, and he is craftily advancing the agenda of globalist occultists who worship 30ft owls at resorts in California and hold secret meetings at hotels shaped like spaceship pyramids in the Austrian Alps. Certainly, this is a possibility that cannot be ruled out. Pope Francis does have friends in high places, and he does say a lot of things that UNESCO and Bill Gates say. However, I would like to suggest another possibility: like the classic figure of French drama, Tartuffe, Pope Francis actually believes the stuff he says, writes, and does.

This just in from Newsweek.com: “The Edge, lead guitarist with the Irish band U2, has become the first rock star to play in the Sistine Chapel, a venue he described as ‘the most beautiful parish hall in the world.’

“The performer, whose real name is David Evans, sang four songs on Saturday night for about 200 doctors, researchers and philanthropists who attended a conference at the Vatican on regenerative medicine called Cellular Horizons.

“Backed by a choir of seven Irish teenagers, and wearing his trademark black beanie cap, he played acoustic guitar and sang a cover of Leonard Cohen's ‘If It be Your Will’, and versions of U2 songs ‘Yahweh’, ‘Ordinary Love’ and ‘Walk On.’

“He joked with his audience, telling them he was stunned when asked to play in the chapel, which was painted by Renaissance master Michelangelo in the 16th century. He then thanked Pope Francis and other Vatican officials ‘for allowing us to use the most beautiful parish hall in the world’.

The Edge dedicated his performance of ‘Walk On,’ written in 2000 for Myanmar democracy advocate Aung San Suu Kyi when she was under house arrest, to Pope Francis, who he described as "the people's pope. ‘He's doing an amazing job and long may he continue,’ he added.” READ MORE HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: And of course, this was the same event at which pro-abort ‘Catholic’ VP Joe Biden was also on hand. Old Uncle Joe didn’t sing for anyone but did deliver a talk at the same conference, just before managing to land a private meeting with Pope Francis.

Bit of irony here, of course, that since 1492 the Sistine Chapel was the sacred place where the College of Cardinals gathered to elect a new pope—the rock of St. Peter. History will now record that under the reign of Francis the Great, that same chapel—famous for its fresco of the Second Coming of Christ and images of the damned being sent to hell and tortured by demons—became a venue for rock stars (...seems strangely fitting somehow). 

Anyway, remember the bit about Arian heretics back in the fourth century taking over the Catholic buildings while a small remnant kept the old Faith? Well, is it just me or does it seem that Pope Francis the Great is bound and determined to demonstrate that the same thing is happening today.  Every time I turn around there seems to be another pro-abort, liberal, population-control whacko being paraded through the halls of the most important buildings of old Christendom. It's almost as if Francis the Great is saying: "I will do whatever I please with your buildings!"

 


So where's our St. Athanasius?



In December of 2015, Father Celatus—a diocesan priest—penned an article for The Remnant in which he promised to boycott the Year of Mercy. At the time, Father wrote: "The Last Word is boycotting the Year of Mercy, much as we have boycotted the Luminous Mysteries and other V2 novelties. I urge all pastors and the faithful as well to be very wary of this Jubilee Year Trojan Horse.

“If Francis of Rome wants a Year of Mercy then he should act in obedience to the Blessed Mother and consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. That single act would usher in an entire era of divine mercy and peace for the Church and world. But short of that long overdue act of consecration we should not expect mercy but rather an ever intensifying application of divine wrath upon the V2 church and world. Regrettably, there is little hope for divine clemency under the pontificate of Francis, who continually proves to be an unprecedented chastisement and scourge upon the Church and world.” READ FATHER’S ARTICLE HERE

One of the principal responsibilities of parish pastors is to protect the faithful from ravaging wolves. But wolves are not always readily recognized for what they really are. Remember the folk tale Little Red Riding Hood? “Grandmother, what big arms you have!” “All the better to hug you with.” Grandmother, what big ears you have!” “All the better to hear you with.” Grandmother, what big teeth you have!” “All the better to eat you with.” And the wicked wolf pounced upon Little Red Riding Hood and ate her all up.

Wolves in disguise are found not only in fairy tales and on Wall Street but within the hierarchy of the Church. Perhaps you are thinking that this Last Word concerns the Wolf of Rome but for now our focus is on wolves closer to home: The U.S. episcopal wolves who fleece the flock with a plethora of collections.

The Catholic Services Appeal and Similar Frauds Featured

Written by
This just in from NCR: "Vice President Joe Biden arrives in Rome on Thursday to attend a conference on breakthroughs in regenerative medicine, part-hosted by the Pontifical Council for Culture.

"Biden will deliver a talk the following day about the Obama administration's "Moonshot" initiative which aims to make therapies available to more patients and accelerate cancer research by improving cancer prevention and detecting it at an early stage..." READ STORY HERE

REMNANT COMMENT:  The Vice President will meet Pope Francis after the conference, by the way.  Now, I know--this is just a lot of silly liberal spin. Biden probably made the whole thing up, in fact. Or maybe it's the drive-by media up to their old tricks again. I don't know.  One thing's certain--Pope Francis will have had nothing to do with that scheduled private meeting with pro-abort apostate Joe Biden. That meeting will have been a chance encounter that couldn't possibly have been avoided.

This is all about one thing--cancer research and saving kids, and Biden's talk at the Vatican is essential to the success of the conference. Anyone who reads more into it is just a pope-bashing hater of Francis the Great.

Got it? Good. Now have a nice day.


Luther posting 95 theses 560x366
I have been wondering why the Kasper/Amoris Laetitia Proposal has prompted such a deep feeling of loathing and disgust. This response has for me been at a gut level, and I have been trying to understand it. Today I think I figured it out.

Many years ago, when I was studying the Faith, I came to an extraordinary realization that changed the direction of my life forever. I had already started taking seriously the moral law, but immediately began to see the admonition of Christ to “be perfect as my Father in heaven is perfect” (Mt. 5:48) as a calamity. If Jesus requires such absolute perfection from me, my chances of heavenly beatitude were slim indeed! I came close to despairing and nearly gave the whole thing up.

Saved by the Error of Martin Luther

Written by
This just in from RenewAmerica.com: "The liberal media are so in love with Pope Francis that they can't report the hard truth about his blatant interference in the 2016 presidential campaign and what it represents.

Not only was socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) invited to a conference of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences (PASS) on Catholic social teaching and the world situation, he also met personally with Pope Francis.

A secular Jewish atheist, Sanders is not even a member of the Catholic Church. "I am not actively involved with organized religion," Sanders has said. His brother Larry says, "He is quite substantially not religious."

Instead, he is a socialist with strong ties, if not membership in, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), the same group that backed Barack Obama's run for president in 2008 and is the U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International.

His involvement in the Vatican conference demonstrates how Pope Francis is moving the Roman Catholic Church into the global socialist camp. READ FULL STORY HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: It must be increasingly difficult for the neo-Catholics to keep their heads buried far enough beneath the sandy surface to miss the most dramatic coup d’état in history. They can stay in denial down there all day long if they want, but, as this story helps make obvious, the rest of the world is waking up. The human element of the Catholic Church has fallen. The walls have been breached. The fort has been betrayed. Welcome to the springtime of Vatican II!  
 
  

sprintime superThis just in from the Catholic Herald: "The Bishop of Wrexham, announcing the closure of 22 churches by 2020, says some changes will begin 'within weeks'

"The Bishop of Wrexham has said that the closure of 22 churches across his diocese is a “huge opportunity for renewal”.

"In a pastoral letter to the diocese, Bishop Peter Brignall announced that he plans to shut 22 out of the current 62 Catholic churches by 2020.

"He wrote: “To some it will be shocking, to others not radical enough; to some it will come as a relief, to others a disappointment or even a scandal; to us all it will be a challenge, but I firmly believe also a huge opportunity for renewal.

“It will mean pastors and communities will have to look afresh at how we live parish life, how the Catholic Church in north Wales is profoundly missionary.” FULL REPORT HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: Ah, springtime. Isn't it wonderful? “On present calculations," noted His Excellency, "by 2020 the number of under-retirement-age priests will be 22..."

That's fabulous. And a few years after that, there won't be any priests at all left in Wales. And just imagine what an awesome opportunity for renewal THAT will be!

This just in from Vatican Radio: "(Vatican Radio) Christians who say “it’s always been done that way,” and stop there have hearts closed to the surprises of the Holy Spirit. They are idolaters and rebels will never arrive at the fullness of the truth. That was the message of Pope Francis at Mass on Monday morning at the chapel in the Casa Santa Marta."

The Pope's words:  “Christians who obstinately maintain ‘it’s always been done this way,' this is the path, this is the street—they sin: the sin of divination. It’s as if they went about by guessing: ‘What has been said and what doesn’t change is what’s important; what I hear—from myself and my closed heart—more than the Word of the Lord.’ Obstinacy is also the sin of idolatry: the Christian who is obstinate sins! The sin of idolatry. ‘And what is the way, Father?’ Open the heart to the Holy Spirit, discern what is the will of God....This is the message the Church gives us today. This is what Jesus says so forcefully: ‘New wine in new wineskins.’ Habits must be renewed in the newness of the Spirit, in the surprises of God..." READ REPORT HERE

REMNANT COMMENT:
Give us a break, Holiness. Those of us who are still paying attention to your schoolmarm papacy are beginning to long for the good ole days of Pope Who Am I To Judge.  Now it’s more like: "Whom am I to judge?"-- as in: "Whom am I to judge first? Get in line!"
