The Remnant Will Never Forget
The Remnant devotes this section of our exclusively to testimonies by those who lived through the revolution of the Second Vatican Council.
This page is reserved for those who saw what happened, or heard what happened from those who did, and who truly understand how Catholic families were blown apart.

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...
Bring it on, modernists.
According to a recent article from Rorate Caeli, the Congregation for Divine Worship is preparing instructions to further implement Traditionis Custodes, with the goal of releasing them next week. The author of the article says that “The instruction will try (among other things) to impose over the global Church, by violent and illegitimate will of the legislator, the blueprint established for the Diocese of Rome by its Cardinal Vicar months ago regarding all Sacraments other than the Holy Eucharist.” Rome’s protocol forbids the celebration of all the 1962 sacramental rites other than the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and even the Mass is tampered with and gravely restricted. It appears that the Holy Father wasn’t pleased that few people followed his motu proprio.
As we approach the anniversary of Our Blessed Lord’s Nativity this year, I am sure many readers have recently found themselves taking up one side of the age-old argument over whether or not it is appropriate to listen to Christmas music outside of the Christmas season. Taken on its own, I think that whether one answers aye or nay to this question is of little consequence (I for one may be found listening to Morten Lauridsen’s O Magnum Mysterium at any time of the year), but I do think that often, this argument is related to a question of much greater importance: How appropriate is it to begin celebrating Christmas, before Christmas? That is, during the season of Advent?
In the first talk of the 2020 Catholic Identity Conference this October, Fr. John Eckert referred to what he dubbed the inversion of Christmas: the common practice in the modern West of beginning “the Holiday Season” sometime during late November-early December (where I live in America at least, I start to see Christmas decorations even before Thanksgiving) and practically ending it when the clock strikes midnight on December 26th.
New from Remnant TV...
From The Remnant Underground, Michael J. Matt examines some recent developments that the Lunatics of Davos don’t want us to notice:
- Even the head of the United Nations is losing patience with President Bidenauci.
- Joe Biden is autodestructing faster than his handlers anticipated.
- Successful legal challenges to the Biden Mandate do not bode well for the Reset.
- Elon Musk is openly challenging Agenda 2030’s core issue: Overpopulation.
- Nazi Australia is becoming the best example of what not to do if you want a Great Reset.
- Francis the Globalist – the most unpopular pope in history – is actually hurting the cause of Globalism.
- Vaccine hesitancy in America is a big problem, but who is responsible for it? (HINT: It’s not Donald Trump!)
Returning to the discussion of reclaiming our Catholic Holy Days. In our last issue, we covered the Advent Season which has substantially disappeared since Vatican II, at least in how it is observed. Many Catholics today “deck their halls” well before Thanksgiving, which gives us some indication of how much has been lost. Can you imagine Muslims celebrating Ramadan a month early? It’s unthinkable, but only because most Muslims take their faith seriously.

These solemn words, with which the Holy Scriptures speak of the divine Wisdom, are attributed by the liturgy to the Most Holy Virgin (it is the Immaculate Conception who speaks):
“From the beginning, and before the world, was I created, and unto the world to come I shall not cease to be, and in the holy dwelling place I have ministered before him. And so was I established in Sion, and in the holy city likewise I rested, and my power was in Jerusalem. And I took root in an honourable people, and in the portion of my God his inheritance, and my abode is in the full assembly of saints.” (Ecclesiastes 24:14-15)
As Catholics, we know that the Blessed Virgin Mary is full of grace. We profess this belief every time we say the Hail Mary. In today’s gospel and offertory, we read of St. Gabriel saying unto Mary “Hail, (Mary), full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women,” (Luke 1:28, Douay-Rheims). The dogma of the Immaculate Conception, which we celebrate today, says that Mary “not only never lent an ear to the serpent, but by divinely-given power she utterly destroyed the force and dominion of the evil one.”
A Pew Research Center survey of 6,485 U.S. adults from September 20-26, 2021 (Few Americans Blame God or Say Faith Has Been Shaken Amid Pandemic, Other Tragedies) yielded further evidence that the fruits of Vatican II’s ecumenical experiment have been putrid. The headline findings from the survey included the following:
- Catholics twice as likely as Protestants to say people who don’t believe in God can go to heaven
- Most Catholics, but not most Protestants, say some non-Christian religions can lead to eternal life
Details of the survey indicate that only 16% of Catholics surveyed (compared with 31% of all Christians) replied that “my religion is the one true faith leading to eternal life in heaven.” In addition, 72% of Catholics responded that “many religions can lead to eternal life,” and 61% of Catholics responded that “some non-Christian religions also can go to heaven.” Presumably an even higher percentage of Catholics would have responded that non-Catholic religions can lead to heaven were it not for the fact that 10% of so-called Catholics responded that they did not believe in heaven.
Indeed, if Francis’s version of Catholicism is right, how can we avoid the conclusion that the efforts of St. Edmund Campion were misguided at best and very likely wicked?
New RTV. Caught on tape -- my harrowing escape from OMICRON.
In this episode of The Remnant Underground, Michael Matt narrowly escapes OMICRON, which has found its way into Flyover Land. He asks the question: Everybody scared enough yet?
Great men are ordinary men with extraordinary determination. ― Abraham Lincoln
ORDINARY CATHOLIC PRIESTS found themselves in extraordinarily dangerous circumstances under the anti-clerical, Socialist regime in Mexico.
Father Mateo Correa Magallanes (1866-1927) was no exception. Even though facing arrest and possible execution for each religious act of his Catholic vocation, the man of God persevered and continued to tend to his persecuted flock, arriving at his new pastoral assignment, the parish of Valparaiso, on March 1, 1926.
So now it’s the “Omicron variant,” which, like the “Delta variant,” is said to constitute an “emergency” because it is “potentially more contagious.” There are zero active “cases” of Omicron in the United States, but rest assured “it’s coming,” says the loopy Governor of New York by operation of law, Kathy Hochul, who is doubtless delighted at the prospect of a new pretext for imposing her insane “vaccine mandate” on healthcare workers in the state, which has decimated the state’s health care workforce. Hochul has publicly declared that COVID vaccines are divinely inspired and that those who refuse them “are not listening to God and what God wants.” Had Trump said anything of the sort about his “Operation Warp Speed,” the entire mediatic complex would have denounced him unceasingly for violating the separation of Church and State. But since the words came from the mouth of a Democrat governor, the Ministry of Truth had no pronouncement on the matter.
