From a Remnant Reader in New Zealand:

I wondered if you would like a comment on today's events in NZ. The prime minister, Jacinda Ardern, has called for two minutes of silence to be observed to recognise the victims of last weeks' mosque massacre. 

Interestingly, we are all being invited to join the commemoration which will be broadcast nationally.  It will begin with the Muslim call to prayer, then will conclude with nearly 30 minutes of Muslim prayer during which we are all requested to remain silent.  There has also been a nationwide show of sympathy by wearing a hijab (head scarf) for the day! 

Naturally, we will not be joining this official ceremony.  We will visit our local parish church and recite the Rosary. 

Here is a video about the 2-minute - silence... 


Would love to hear some comments by people outside New Zealand about what they think of all this.  

REMNANT COMMENT: Due to the horrific nature of this tragedy, we would invite comments which are sensitive to the families of the victims. Muslim or Christian, such acts of atrocity are an abomination in the eyes of God and Man.

We are curious to know, however, if our readers agree that the New Zealand PM's national call to silence Christian prayer and amplify that of their Muslim neighbors would fall within the realm of a legitimate ecumenical overture during a time of crisis.

In any case, our prayers are raised to the God of Christianity—the one and only True God—on behalf of the Muslim victims of this act of senseless violence.

Muslim or Christian, we can all agree that the perpetrators of such heinous acts of terrorism surely deserve to burn in hell should they depart from this earth unrepentant. 



Proving the Dems will play dirty in their efforts to run Trump out of the White House, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just got busted for failing to report $1 million of campaign cash with which she secured her win in the midterm elections.

From LawEnforecmentToday.com:

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her Chief of Staff were just quietly removed from their role as board members on the PAC Justice Democrats, reported the Daily Caller.

The action comes shortly after a complaint was filed with the FEC alleging that she and Saikat Chakrabarti committed campaign finance violations that helped her win the 2018 midterm elections.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her Chief of Staff could be facing multiple civil penalties or even jail time due to an investigation into whether she hid control of an outside PAC that helped solidify her win in the 2018 midterm elections.

According to the Daily Caller, Ocasio-Cortez and Saikat Chakrabarti gained majority control of the Justice Democrats PAC in late 2017. Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti were officially taken off the Justice Democrats’ board on March 15, according to a corporate document to the Washington, D.C. Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs, The Daily Caller stated.

REMNANT COMMENT: "It appears Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her associates ran an off-the-books operation to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars, thus violating the foundation of all campaign finance laws: transparency." - Tom Anderson, Director of the National Legal and Policy Center's Government Integrity Project

Well, yes, but let's not forget how this little performer got her gig in the first place: she literally tried out for the part...

The St. Gallen Group lost a member today. Cardinal Danneels, whom Pope Francis describes as “a zealous pastor who served the church with dedication,” died this morning at age 85.

statement on the website of the Belgian Church said: “Cardinal Jozef De Kesel, archbishop of Mechelen-Brussels and chairman of the Belgian bishops’ conference, has the sad duty to inform you that Cardinal Godfried Danneels, emeritus archbishop of Mechelen-Brussels, died this morning, Thursday March 14 2019, in his hometown in Mechelen.” 

Although his later years were marred by the abuse crisis—he was recorded telling a man who had been abused by his uncle, Bishop Roger Vangheluwe, that it would be better to remain silent until the bishop had retired—he nevertheless somehow found himself honored to be selected to stand alongside Pope Francis the night he was introduced to the world on the loggia.

May God have mercy on his soul.

When the magisterium of the Church becomes useless and compromised, it is vital for individual members of the hierarchy to find other ways and means to defend the brethren.

Please visit his website and send him a message in gratitude for this initatiative on behalf of his flock. 

May God bless and keep Bishop Athanasius Schneider.

Wow, Man! Wow, Man!

When can we all agree that the hippie dippie schtick is old, tired, and quite frankly, the stupidest “cause” the Vatican has yet championed? Light shows on St. Peter’s weren’t enough; the Pope’s still at it. Can someone please remind him that he’s head of the Catholic Church, and we’d like some theology up in here? On second thought, maybe not...

Vatican City, Mar 8, 2019 / 10:25 am (CNA).- Pope Francis said Friday that global development goals need to be supported by ethical objectives stemming from personal conversion and recognition of one’s failures.

“The economic and political objectives must be supported by ethical objectives, which presuppose a change of attitude, the Bible would say a change of heart,” the pope said March 8 at the Vatican's Clementine Hall.

“Already St. John Paul II spoke about the need to ‘encourage and sustain an ecological conversion,’” he said, referencing a 2001 catechesis of one of his predecessors. “Religions have a key role to play here.”

Francis emphasized that “for a correct transition to a sustainable future, it is necessary to recognize ‘one’s own mistakes, sins, vices or negligence,’ ‘to repent of heart, to change from within,’ to be reconciled with others, with creation and with the Creator,” as he wrote in his 2015 encyclical on the environment, Laudato si'.

“Indeed, we should all commit ourselves to promoting and implementing the development goals that are supported by our deepest religious and ethical values,” he urged. “Human development is not only an economic question or concerns only experts, but is above all a vocation, a call that requires a free and responsible response.”

The pope addressed Vatican officials, religious representatives, and members of international organizations participating in a March 7-9 conference on “Religions and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): Listening to the cry of the earth and the poor.”

…In his speech to conference participants Friday, Pope Francis praised the SDGs and 2030 Agenda as “a great step forward for global dialogue, in the sign of a necessary ‘new universal solidarity.’”

REMNANT COMMENT: This man is becoming insufferable!  And the thing is, the world is not nearly as interested in what he has to say as he thinks they are. Take, for example, his stupid movie--Pope Francis: A Man of His Word, which Nick Allen of RogerEbert.com called "a non-denominational sermon" by a "Francis fanboy".  It was a box office disaster.  It cost more to make than it's earned so far--a whopping $8 million, which is far less than the top 100 movies of 2018 grossed on their opening weekends.

In other words, nobody cares!  Pope Francis is a superstar in his own mind, but that's really about it. And now his God complex has got him convinced he has to save the planet. 

May God save us all from this increasingly delusional human being.

Fresh off Trump’s raise-the-roof CPAC address, we stumbled upon the following story from his early days in office:

trump fatima

REMNANT COMMENT: Is that a rosary in the hand of the President of the United States?

At a time when raw evil is consuming the world, I have no doubt that Donald Trump's efforts to keep God in the picture is the main reason his enemies hate him so. Of course, he's not Catholic but his innate desire to use his office to remind the world about God certainly is not not Catholic. 

We distinguish, of course, between sound theology (which Trump obviously lacks) and the President's basic, almost childlike, attempt to remind a nation hellbent on destruction that God exists and that our nation must acknowledge Him and the power of prayer. 

Once this distinction is made, we can take solace in the fact that Trump's Godly presidential reminders are not wasted efforts, nor are they the deceptive words of papal ecumania which, coming from that exalted office, serve not truth but error.

Trump has not the benefit of sound theological training, access to the Sacraments, and the habit of formal prayer. In other words, he's doing the best he can with the little he's been given in a world where even the Catholic Church's moral authority has become something of a joke.

Somehow, this man is acting more like a Catholic than are most Catholic leaders in the Church today: 

Who knows where this will end? But without him, what are the chances Americans will hear words about God, the Bible and the power of prayer from the North Lawn ever again? 

In fact, given the cast of democratic characters threatening to run in 2020, it’s more likely they’d be sacrificing babies to Moloch on the North Lawn. And obviously it would be supremely unlikely that any one of them would be seeking out the services of a Catholic Priest to conduct an exorcism upon taking office. 

Keep praying. 

TRUMP 2020!


Dear Friends and Supporters (Actual and Potential) of Una Voce Cuba,
