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...
La Venida del Señor trae no sólo alegría sino también sufrimiento. Al día de Navidad le sigue la feria de San Esteban, protomártir. Dos días más tarde conmemoramos a los Santos Inocentes asesinados en lugar del Niño Santo. Herodes, usurpador de la autoridad legítima en Judea, se llena de ira cuando oye del posible advenimiento de la autoridad verdadera dentro de sus dominios. No encuentra al Santo para acabar con Él, por lo que desata su furia contra los Santo Inocentes, los pequeños que son incapaces de defenderse. Todos los tiranos ilegítimos terminan estallando de rabia, porque en el fondo saben que su posición es a la postre insostenible.

Tras la abdicación de Benedicto XVI, el Centro Cultural Lepanto lanza la cruzada “Un Millón de Rosarios Diarios”
“Hoy, 11 de febrero, el día en que conmemoramos la aparición de la Inmaculada Concepción en la gruta de Lourdes, y tras la renuncia de Su Santidad Benedicto XVI, estoy pidiendo su participación en una Cruzada del Rosario, cuyo objetivo es la recitación diaria de un millón de Santos Rosarios desde ahora hasta el final del cónclave, para el mayor bien de la Santa Iglesia y para adelantar el triunfo del Inmaculado Corazón en el mundo.”
Así empieza la declaración de Fabio Bernabei, presidente del Centro Cultural Lepanto, que lanza esta importante iniciativa en un momento especialmente delicado para la Iglesia Católica. Por descontado, la iniciativa casa con el mensaje que Nuestra Señora dio a Santa Bernadette Soubirous en Lourdes, el 11 de febrero de 1858. Con el Rosario es posible burlar todos los obstáculos que Satanás coloca delante de la Iglesia de Cristo y en el camino hacía la santidad.
“Conocemos el poder y la efectividad que el Santo Rosario tiene sobre el corazón de Dios y de Su Hijo”, escribió Sor Lucía de Fátima. “Por eso Nuestra Señora misma en sus apariciones participa en la recitación del Rosario, como en la gruta de Lourdes con Santa Bernadette, y en Fátima con Francisco, Jacinta y yo. Cuando el Rosario se desliza por vuestras manos los ángeles y los santos se unen a vosotros. Hoy, más que nunca, el mundo necesita vuestro rosario.”
Hoy la lucha entre los partidarios del terror y el desorden, y los defensores de la Paz de Cristo y el Orden de Cristo “se ha desplazado de la sociedad temporal a la espiritual y se identifica con la Santa Iglesia”, comentó Plinio Correa de Oliveira en “Revolución y Contra-Revolución”.
Pero los fieles, argumenta Bernabei, no deben temer porque, tal y como lo confirma Santa Teresa del Niño Jesús, “por muy serios sean los pecados de los hombres, mientras recéis el Rosario, Dios no abandonará el mundo, porque [el Rosario] tiene poder sobre Su Corazón.”
Por tanto les rogamos, concluye el presidente Bernabei, participen en la Cruzada de un millón de Rosariosy difúndanla, procurando rezar una o más décadas del Rosario, dondequiera que estén; en una iglesia, en el trabajo, en casa e ¡INCLUSO POR LA CALLE!

Traditional Proclamation of the Birth of Christ
Note: The following is taken from the Roman Martyrology. For a thousand years or more and throughout all of Christendom it was read on Christmas Eve before the celebration of Midnight Mass. This was back in the days when Catholics still believed every dogma of the Catholic Faith, however, including the inerrancy of Scripture (beginning with Genesis and Creation). Please God, in your infinite mercy restore our Faith in You this Christmas, so that we may once again believe as our fathers did. Let us live again, let us become Christians again.
A happy and holy Christmas to all and a blessed New Year to what’s left of the Catholic remnant throughout the world. A Child is born in Bethlehem, Exult for joy, Jerusalem! Lo, He who reigns above the skies, there in a manger lowly lies. Alleluia. MJM
"And lead us not into temptation. But deliver us from evil. Amen." - The Second Person of the Holy Trinity
Since the close of the Second Vatican Council the Catholic Church has experienced the greatest crisis of faith and discipline in her history, caused by the spread of what Msgr. Guido Pozzo, Secretary of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, has described as “a para-Conciliar ideology … that substantially proposes once more the idea of Modernism.” By Modernism is meant the “synthesis of all heresies,” as Saint Pius X called it, a system of errors that greatest of Popes fought mightily to suppress because it undermines every aspect of doctrine and praxis it infects, proceeding by artful ambiguity in theology, demands for the “reform” and “updating” of the Church, and the “simplification” of her divine worship.
A Christmas Truce at the World War I Front
|On December 7, 1914, Pope Benedict XV suggested a temporary hiatus of the war for the celebration of Christmas. Though Germany readily agreed, the other powers refused.|

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. MJM)
Though World War I had been raging for only four months, it was already proving to be one of the bloodiest wars in history. Soldiers on both sides were trapped in trenches, exposed to the cold and wet winter weather, covered in mud, and extremely careful of sniper shots. Machines guns had proven their worth in war, bringing new meaning to the word "slaughter."
In a place where bloodshed was nearly commonplace and mud and the enemy were fought with equal vigor, something surprising occurred on the front for Christmas in 1914. The men who lay shivering in the trenches embraced the Christmas spirit. In one of the truest acts of peace to men of goodwill, soldiers from both sides in the southern portion of the Ypres Salient set aside their weapons and hatred, if only temporarily, and met in No Man's Land.
The coming of the Savior brings not only joy but suffering. Christmas Day is immediately followed by the Feast of St. Stephen, the first martyr. Two days later we commemorate the Holy Innocents slain in place of the Holy Child. Herod, a usurper of the rightful authority in Judea, is filled with rage and anger when he hears of the possible arrival of the true authority within his dominion. He cannot find the Holy One so as to lay hands on Him and so he unleashes his fury on the Holy Innocents, those new to life and unable to defend themselves. All illegitimate tyrants eventually lash out in injustice for deep down they know their position is ultimately untenable.
On November 3rd, Vatican spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi commented on reports that Pope Francis would name women Cardinals for the February consistory. Almost immediately, certain Neo-Catholic media pundits, as well as the secular press, began to spin the words of Lombardi to imply that he strongly opposed the idea of women Cardinals. Catholic Online chose the headline, “Pope Francis Will Not Appoint Women as Cardinals,” while the Irish Times went with, “Vatican dismisses reports of women cardinals.” Conservatives focused on the fact that Fr. Lombardi called the reports “nonsense” and that it is “…simply not a realistic possibility that Pope Francis will name women cardinals for the February consistory. “
A Letter from a Recent Lutheran Convert
Dear Folks at The Remnant:
I've been a lurker to your website for a while, and a subscriber to your fine newspaper for a few months now. Your paper has been a continual source of clarity and....well, sanity.
You mentioned in a recent YouTube shtick (it was with Matt and Ferrara), that you were going to devote future YouTube conversations to the problem of the New Mass. It made me think of my own case.
