STATEMENT ON CALLS FOR THE LEGAL CODIFICATION OF ABORTION IN THE U.S.A.
Statements have come to our attention in which political candidates have called for the permanent legal codification of abortion throughout the United States.
The Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter wishes to remind all Americans, and the Catholic faithful in particular, of the clear teaching of the Catechism of the Catholic Church: “Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception.”
Furthermore, Holy Mother Church has repeatedly condemned abortion as a grave evil.
Catholic voters in the United States are called to prudently assess candidates, making every effort to support those who can secure the greatest amount of good and least amount of harm. However, no Catholic in good conscience may support any legislation that directly contradicts the moral law.
The Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter renews its commitment, during the month of October, to pray that the grace of divine wisdom direct the deliberations of Congress, and shine forth in all the proceedings and laws framed for our rule and government, and that all judges, magistrates, and other officers who are appointed to guard our political welfare, may be enabled, by God’s aid, to discharge the duties of their respective stations with honesty and ability.
It broke early this morning that our President and First Lady had tested positive for COVID. The news came in a Twitter message just before 1AM, after a suspenseful evening following reports that Mr. Trump’s close adviser, Hope Hicks, had tested positive.
Since then Mark Meadows, the White House chief of staff, has confirmed that Trump is showing mild cold-like symptoms so far, and Melania tweeted, “I have mild symptoms but overall feeling good.” VP Mike Pence tested negative.
Our prayers go out to the president and the first lady for a speedy and complete recovery. We also see how God, in His providence, could use this occurrence to help the country understand that even someone who’s in the most vulnerable category still has a very high chance of surviving this thing. Other leaders have had it so far: England’s PM, Boris Johnson, and Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil. Both have recovered.
Of course, Covid is highly contagious, but the good news is that the mortality rate is exceedingly low. As the nation is being brainwashed and traumatized by the media into making Covid and fear of the virus the number one political issue impacting the upcoming election, perhaps, and again in God’s providence, this will work to the advantage of Trump’s reelection bid.
God bless and protect Mr. Trump and the First Lady.

(WHITE HOUSE) On this inaugural National Day of Prayer and Return, the First Lady and I join millions of Christians here in the United States and around the world in prayer, as we turn our hearts to our Lord and Savior.
Our great Nation was founded by men and women of deep and abiding faith—a faith that has stood the test of time. Four hundred years ago, early American settlers trusted their lives to His providence and braved a voyage to a New World. From the pilgrims who sought His protection aboard the Mayflower to the countless believers who today bow their heads to ask for His guidance during these unprecedented times, our country continues to turn to the Lord. Following in our ancestors’ footsteps we continue the “firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence” that provides us enduring strength and reassurance in our times of need.
The trials and tribulations the American people have faced over the past several months have been great. Yet, as we have seen time and again, the resolve of our citizenry—fortified by our faith in God—has guided us through these hardships and helped to unite us as one Nation under God. As we continue to combat the challenges ahead of us, we must remember the sage words of President George Washington during his first Presidential Address: “propitious smiles of heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which Heaven itself has ordained.” As a country and a people, let us renew our commitment to these abiding and timeless principles.
Today, I am pleased to join my voice to yours in thanking God for blessing this nation with great power and responsibility. With reverence, humility, and thanksgiving, we beg for His continued guidance and protection.
God bless President Trump!

In this Sunday Sermon from South Saint Paul, Father draws a parallel from the hero at Hacksaw Ridge during World War II to the heroes of the pro-life movement today, specifically Abby Johnson.
As the national debate over a replacement for Justice Ginsburg rages on, Father discusses the importance of placing every political emphasis on the question of the fundamental right to life.
While the US heads toward civil war and the rest of the world decides whether to keep up the COVID charade or let it fizzle, the Head of the Catholic Church makes one more Extremely Important and Highly Relevant Contribution:
(AmericaMagazine.org): Pope Francis told a group of parents of L.G.B.T. children yesterday that “God loves your children as they are” and “the church loves your children as they are because they are children of God.” He did so in a brief encounter with some 40 Italian parents (both mothers and fathers) of L.G.B.T. children after the public audience in the Renaissance courtyard of San Damaso in the Vatican.
The parents are members of an Italian association, Tenda di Gionata (“Jonathan’s Tent”), which welcomes and provides information and formation to L.G.B.T. Christians, their families and pastoral workers.
As he bade them farewell, the association gave the pope a rainbow-colored T-shirt with the words “In love there is no fear” emblazoned on it.
That was His Holiness, friends, solving just one more of the world’s most critical issues.
One might think that in the current climate, a pope would want to address the violent riots in our cities, or the fact that—on month 7 of the 15 days to slow the spread—many chapels and parishes remain closed and their faithful without sacraments. Maybe a pope would even consider reminding the 76 million Catholics in the United States of the necessity of voting for a pro-life candidate.
You might think that, but that’d be silly. Pope Francis realizes a time like this is a time to make sure the world knows the Church’s moral compass is so far off base there’s no point in referencing it anymore.
The Church loves LGBT children just the way they are…
Fine words, Your Holiness. Would you like to resign yet?
Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts has had enough of the COVID nonsense. At a news conference yesterday, Gov. Ricketts stated he will end nearly all of his state’s social-distancing restrictions on Monday, September 14.
Small businesses such as bars, restaurants, churches, gyms and hair salons will be allowed to operate with no formal restrictions, while large gathering venues are raised to 75% capacity, up from 50%.
None of the remaining COVID guidelines will be enforceable.
Mainstream news outlets immediately began attacking Nebraska and surrounding states for “spiking numbers of COVID cases!” To which those with functioning brains in their heads should respond, “Testing shows that Nebraska and surrounding states have achieved herd immunity!”
May Gov. Ricketts inspire a few more governors to ease up on the nonsensical COVID restrictions.
And, God help us, may America never suffer another case-demic again.
The following announcement came from Bp. Daniel Dolan on Twitter today:
“Fr. Cekada died peacefully this morning, surrounded by prayer, and well fortified by the Sacraments of the Church. Please remember this good and generous priestly soul in your prayers. The funeral is scheduled for Thursday morning, with the wake Wednesday evening.”
We at The Remnant would like to request prayers for the repose of his soul. Although Fr. Cekada disagreed with The Remnant on some very important issues, we always found him to be a fair-minded truth seeker and someone with whom it was a pleasure to have principled debates, for example, the Great Debate of '98 between Fr. Cekada and Michael Davies, and later debates in The Remnant with Fr. Brian Harrison.
Requiescat in pace.
This is Claudia Wert, Executive Director of the Christus Vincit Foundation. We are a new Catholic organization, endorsed by Bishop Athanasius Schneider, devoted to the growth of traditionally-minded parishes, organizations, and communities. The mission of Christus Vincit is to provide matching grants to fund projects and events that focus on the Latin Mass. Additionally, we will be performing extensive survey work to understand the size and state of traditional Catholicism across the globe.
Link to our website: https://www.christusvincitfoundation.org
Our first survey is focused on the spread of the traditional Latin Mass in the United States. Results will be used to help the TLM community assess its greatest strengths and weaknesses, obstacles to growth, and best practices among thriving parishes. 4,000 persons who attend the TLM have already answered the survey. We are hoping to receive 8,000 responses by October. If you have the time, please consider passing this survey along to your readers.

It was evident that when Kamala Harris emerged on the national scene that her political ambition would not cease with shinning a Senate seat from California.
Harris quickly made headlines when she claimed that Brian Buescher, who was nominated as a federal district judge, should be disqualified due to his membership in the Knights of Columbus.
The economy is another way of saying, our lives. No matter what the popular ethos preaches, there is no such thing as a non-essential business. All businesses are essential for those who work them.
When government says it is safe to go to Walmart, but unsafe to attend church, and when dentists’ offices must close and Planned Parenthood is open for abortions, the mantra of “your health” is a expedient excuse.
All 50 states have made a disaster declaration for the first time in U.S. history. Twenty-two million have applied for unemployment in a number that grows weekly. We are a $22 trillion economy subdued by a virus with a mortality rate below 0.30 percent. Those initial models forecasting more than 2 million deaths were bunk.
