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.

Visitors who have personal reflections, or memories of traditionalists pioneers, or reminicences of the revolution are encouraged to tell their stories and share their pictures here. . . so that we will never forget.
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...
Vladimir Putin sent his Russian Federation troops into Ukraine in the last week of February 2022. Within a matter of days, Putin, his ministers, and then everyone in Russia had been hit with devastating sanctions. Indiscriminately, every single participant in the Russian economy was cut off from credit and reduced to using a currency spiraling into worthlessness. Russian mothers, children, the handicapped, the elderly—Washington wants them all dead.
As Ludwig von Mises Institute Director Jeff Deist and economist Bob Murphy point out on a recent Mises podcast, the sanctions against Russia are metastasizing rapidly. Valery Gergiev, the conductor of the Munich Philharmonic, has been fired. A Canadian youth hockey league and the Paralympics are banning Russians entirely. A Russian soprano singer named Anna Netrebko was kicked out of the Metropolitan Opera in New York for not denouncing her country’s president. Russia has been banned from participating in the World Cup. The United States Department of Justice has already created a “task force” to seize the private property of Russian citizens whom Washington has decided—on what standard it is not known—are “oligarchs”.
Editor’s Note: This morning I received an urgent email from his Excellency Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, asking us to give top priority to his message on the crisis in Ukraine.
“In the Russian-Ukrainian crisis,” the Archbishop writes, “we must clearly recognize and denounce the coup d’état of the deep state worldwide, which has worked to install the New World Order, involving the WEF, NATO, UN, the European Union, the IMF…”
I could not agree more with his Excellency, that this is indeed a geo-critical moment and that this discussion must move beyond the realm of Fox News and CNN if we are to bring anything constructive to the de-escalation of this crisis.
If this issue is not addressed with integrity and objectivity, Viganò cautions, “there is a real risk that the Biden Administration will take advantage of this crisis, of which Joe Biden himself is an accomplice and responsible.”
“There is also a real risk,” His Excellency continues, “that this crisis will serve to cover up Biden’s crimes, those of his son Hunter, the China virus pseudo-pandemic, the Durham investigation, the 2020 electoral fraud, as well as jeopardizing the mid-term elections in the United States.”
As the world finds itself on the brink of World War III—a war orchestrated by a globalist cabal and headed up by the likes of Klaus Schwab, George Soros, and Team Biden—I urge readers to prayerfully reflect on this message from His Excellency. “The Truth,” Viganò reminds us, “is the foundation of justice and peace.” Let us all, therefore, ask God to help us find and defend the light of that truth in this moment of Luciferian darkness.

As of the date of Putin’s invasion, it appears that some 65% of Ukraine’s population was unvaccinated. Did Putin really have a choice?
War is no laughing matter. But what is laughable, as well as criminal, is the manner in which the perpetually lying media and the bipartisan War Party have managed to hide the historical facts which demonstrate that what is happening in Ukraine at this very moment is yet another debacle orchestrated by the arrogant buffoons who administer an American foreign policy that could not have been better designed to destabilize existing regimes, throw vast regions of the world into turmoil, and generate endless war and suffering that never touches the instigating elites. Putin’s invasion of Ukraine is the war these ghouls did everything in their power to provoke, as Pat Buchanan has rightly observed. Indeed, they would have been furious had Putin not invaded. Now they are delighted at the emergence of yet another self-made crisis they will exploit to the hilt.
When we opposed the invasion of Iraq in the pages of The Remnant some 20 years ago, many of our readers accused us of being a defender of Saddam Hussein. The truth is, I didn’t think much about him, one way or the other. My problem with that charade was the false flag being hoisted all day, all night, every day, every night on American TV.
At its climax—and fed by the most advanced propaganda machine in human history—the war campaign left virtually no room for dissent. If you didn’t go along with the Bush-Cheney crusade to eradicate the “axis of evil” from the face of the earth, well you were part of that axis and thus didn't deserve to speak. You didn’t even deserve to breathe according to the Freedom Fries gang.
Venite, convertimini ad me, dicit Dominus.
Venite flentes, fundamus lacrymas ad Deum:
quia nos negleximus, et propter nos terra patitur:
nos iniquitatem fecimus,
et propter nos fundamenta commota sunt.
Festinemus anteire ante iram Dei,
flentes et dicentes:
Qui tollis peccata mundi, miserere nobis.
in Dominica Quinquagesimæ
Come and be converted to me, says the Lord. Come weeping, let us shed tears to God: because we have transgressed, and because of us the earth suffers: we have committed iniquity and because of us its foundations have been shaken. Let us hasten to prevent God’s wrath, weeping and saying: You who take upon Yourself the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
It is difficult for a man of today to understand these words of the Ambrosian Missal. Yet they are simple in their severe clarity, for they show us that God’s wrath because of our sins and betrayals can only be appeased by contrition and penance. In the Roman Rite this concept is made even more clearly in the prayer of the Litany of Saints:
New from Remnant TV...
Even war won't stop the World Economic Forum from flying its freak flag. The future is here! A national digital ID for Canadians, implanted microchips for the Swedes, and war for Eastern Europe. Vladimir Putin invades Ukraine, and everybody says he’s a madman. But mirror, mirror on the wall who’s the maddest of them all?
In this episode of The Remnant Underground, Michael J. Matt takes a deep dive into the politics behind the Crisis in the Ukraine. If you want to know what’s really going on, turn off Fox News and CNN. The last time war fever hit this pitch, we blew up the Mideast in a pointless war that lasted over twenty years.
Remember that Red Wave we hoped would help save this country in November? Yeah, well, you can kiss that goodbye. The Dems have gotten themselves a wartime president to fall behind. But what’s really going on here? Who’s the good guy? Who’s the bad guy? And is there any difference between the two?
While we look at the shiny new thing on TV every night, the Lunatics of Davos are plotting the end of homo sapiens and freewill.
Plus, another Canadian premier calls out Justin Trudeau and the Great Reset crowd. The plot thickens. . .

Praise be to Nero’s Neptune
the Titanic sails at dawn
and everybody’s shouting
“Which side are you on?”
—Bob Dylan, “Desolation Row”
In a February 23, 2022, Washington Examiner piece titled, “China’s support for Russia turns Ukraine into battleground for new world order,” foreign affairs reporter Joel Gehrke writes:
China has given “tacit approval” for Russian President Vladimir Putin’s latest invasion of Ukraine, in the judgment of U.S. officials, as part of a joint effort to undermine the institutions that American and allied leaders established to minimize conflict in the decades following World War II.
“Russia and the PRC also want a world order,” State Department spokesman Ned Price said Wednesday. “But this is an order that is and would be profoundly illiberal. ... It is an order that is, in many ways, destructive rather than additive.”
In his 1984 lectures in Belfast and Dublin, the great Michael Davies began with an image to help his audience understand the manner in which the innovators had spread the novelties of Vatican II within the Church:
“I understand that there is a most effective method of killing goldfish which can be employed by tender-hearted people who do not wish to inflict pain upon these colorful little creatures and yet, for some compelling reason, wish to dispose of them. I had better point out, in order to avoid the wrath of any goldfish lovers, that I have never experimented to discover whether the method actually works. I can look any goldfish in the eye without the least tremor of conscience! The method is as follows: heat up the water in which the goldfish is disporting himself very, very slowly, degree by degree — over a period of days — if possible. The goldfish will continue on his merry way, evincing not the least sign of discomfort and then, almost imperceptibly, he will be floating upside down — dead, stone dead.” (The Goldfish Bowl: The Church Since Vatican II)
About this time five years ago, American leftists were screaming—literally bellowing up at the sky—that they were moving to Canada. “Donald Trump is a fascist!” they cried. “Tyranny is taking over the United States!”
One after another, Democrats took to Twitter to announce their imminent departure for our neighbor to the north. The USA is a dictatorship—Yukon ho!
The documents of the Second Vatican Council are sometimes characterized as ambiguous. This suggests, of course, that the documents have more than one plausible meaning. There is a worse possibility, however. At least when it comes to Dignitatis humanae, a Council document might have no meaning at all.
The idea is shocking, but solely as a matter of logic, it is not impossible. Consider, for example, a document which says both "A" and "not A." The document is ambiguous only if the passages are read in isolation: the document might mean "A," and it might mean "not A."
