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...

Our friend Carol Glatz reports:
"Catholics, Protestants and Orthodox must pray together and work hand-in-hand helping the poor, Pope Francis told thousands of Catholic charismatics and members of other Christian communities.
If the devil “unites us in death, who are we to divide ourselves in life?” he said, adding that all Christians can and must pray together, as they have all received the same baptism and are striving to follow Christ." The pope said Christian unity was the work of the Holy Spirit, which meant Christians need to pray together in a “spiritual ecumenism, an ecumenism of prayer.”
Does Hell exist? Were Adam and Eve real people? Was Moses real? Did he part the Red Sea? Did he write the first five books of the Bible? What exactly are we Catholics allowed to believe now that the wolves have "updated" our Church?
It was midmorning. My husband and I were driving along I-75 when an old, slightly beat-up truck passed us on the right. There was a sign nailed to it—a flat white board with big black letters. We laughed when we read it. It was so true. God is great. Beer is good. People are crazy.
A friend told me later that the words were from a country music song by Billy Currington. The sign wasn’t original, but that didn’t change the impact of those three short sentences. The world has indeed gone mad. This isn’t hyperbole. I’m a mental health professional.1 I know crazy when I see it.
Things are not as they should be.
I put the word “conservative” in scare quotes as to Hannity, Levin and Beck, but the remarkable thing about Mike Church is that he is an authentic conservative, by which I mean a conservative who views political, social and moral questions from a traditional Catholic perspective as reflected in the papal and conciliar Magisterium before the late unpleasantness of the imaginary “renewal” of Vatican II.
Indeed, over the past year or so Mike Church has emerged as the only traditionally Catholic conservative in talk radio today, anywhere in the world. And I mean traditional. Not only during my appearances on the show, but now thematically, Mike has turned the longest running political talk show on Sirius Radio into an unabashed presentation of the Social Kingship of Christ, traditional Catholic moral teaching, and even the traditional Latin liturgy as the solution to what is evidently otherwise a terminal civilizational crisis. I have been invited on the show numerous times to defend all of these things explicitly, to speak of the one true Church, and even to call upon conservative Protestants to enter the Church if they are serious about saving our nation and our civilization.
The Mike Church Interview: A Remarkable Conversion to Tradition Changes the Face of Political Talk Radio FeaturedBy: Christopher A. Ferrara
The Church knows that honest debate must be encouraged among experts.”~Laudato Si, Pope Francis
Throughout Laudato Si, Pope Francis states that he is open to a debate and a dialogue on the environmental issues raised in the encyclical. In fact, nearly 21 times in the body of the encyclical, Francis urges for dialogue among religions, ideologies and people. The Pope also calls for a debate on the environment solutions some 12 times in the encyclical. Although he says he wants contrary opinions debated and presented, is that the reality at the Vatican and this papacy.
The very language of the encyclical exposes the real intent of the Vatican. In the first sentence of section 14 of the encyclical, the Pope calls for a “new dialogue” a “conversation” about the environmental challenges. Yet, by the end of that very same paragraph, the Pontiff arrives at a completely contrary position:
Thus this national-public act of blasphemy against Christ and His Sacrament of Marriage demands national-public acts of reparation.
- ETERNAL FATHER, we offer Thee the Holy Face of Jesus, covered with blood, sweat, dust and spittle, in reparation for the crime of those who profane the Holy Sacrament of Marriage.
Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote the majority opinion in the 5 to 4 decision. He was joined by the court’s four more liberal justices.
God help us all as we prepare for persecution of all things Christian and the crucifixion of the Mystical Body of Christ in America.
While most Catholics may be aware that the date of reckoning Easter fluctuates from year to year, they may be blissfully ignorant of how it is currently calculated in the Western Church, the impact that it annually has on the liturgical calendar, and its long, complicated and controversial history.
Though we are now past the liturgical period of Paschaltide, these points concerning the date of Easter are especially pertinent at this time, as Pope Francis announced on June 12th in St. John Lateran’s Basilica to the International Catholic Charismatic Renewal Services III World Retreat of Priests—whew, what a title!—that an agreement had been reached in fixing a common date of Easter with the Eastern Orthodox.
Cardinals Pell and Burke endorse the Traditional Catholic symposium at Lake Garda.
Powerful Catholic blowback against the new encyclical and the alliance between the Church and the UN-led new world order.
Since my buddy Chris Ferrara has, perhaps before anyone else in the English speaking world, done a thorough examination of the pope’s environment encyclical, “Laudato Si,” I will confine myself here to some observations of a different sort and to proposing a few questions for consideration – to talking around it, so to speak.
A great many people, long before the document was issued yesterday, have been asking whether it should have been written at all. Is this appropriate for a pope? Why was it necessary? Why, of all the possible topics, did Pope Francis choose this one? Has he stepped outside the proper bounds of papal authority? Aren’t there more pressing matters for the head of the Catholic Church to think about? (Does anyone know how many Chaldean Catholics are still alive in Mosul, Iraq, for instance?)
“I welcome His Holiness Pope Francis’s encyclical, and deeply admire the Pope’s decision to make the case – clearly, powerfully, and with the full moral authority of his position – for action on global climate change. As we prepare for global climate negotiations in Paris this December, it is my hope that all world leaders and all God’s children will reflect on Pope Francis’s call to come together to care for our common home.
“We have a profound responsibility to protect our children, and our children’s children, from the damaging impacts of climate change.” READ MORE HERE
REMNANT COMMENT: Okay, so the Pope has given us an encyclical that has won the wild and unconditional praise of a who's who list of one-worlders, pro-aborts and sustainable development types-- everyone from Al Gore to Jeffrey Sachs to United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon. And now the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history says we all need to carefully reflect on the encyclical, which President Obama "deeply admires".
Everybody okay with this? The Remnant is just being reactionary and paranoid in its criticisms of Laudato Si, right? Really? Holy cow!
