Remnant Petitions

Chartres peeps

Follow along from home each day with video updates on The Remnant Facebook Page.

The Remnant’s team from here the States is in France this weekend. We will once again be walking with our traditional Catholic brothers from all over the world on the grand Pentecost Pilgrimage of Notre-Dame de Chrétienté to Chartres.

I ask readers to please keep their fellow American pilgrims in their prayers as we once again attempt the 3-day pilgrimage across France. The now 27-year-old U.S. Chapter of Our Lady of Guadalupe will remember all of the readers of The Remnant in their prayers every day on the road to Chartres.

Dia dhuit

With just over two weeks to go to Referendum Day, please ask for a Miracle for Life and Faith!

There are many powerful prayer (and fasting) efforts going on and many canvassing opportunities to seek to win hearts, minds and votes for Life. The 40 days and nights of Eucharistic Reparation is ongoing on Croagh Patrick, as is the 54 day Rosary for Life. Many groups are holding rosaries, Eucharistic adoration, vigils...public, parish and private. We are also fasting (bread & water only) for Life on the Fridays of May.

In all, we remember that it is God who gives the victory. It is He who sees our efforts and hears our prayers offered through Our Mother Mary, through St Joseph, the Irish Saints, Holy Souls and angels ...and it is He who grants Miracles.

In this message, we ask you to consider doing the following three things:

1.The Feast of Pentecost is coming and it is time to start a novena or triduum, starting on 11th May (we urge you to start the noveena irrespective of the delay in sending this mail), we ask you to pray for a great outpouring of the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit on the Voters, on ourselves and our families, on Ireland and on the Church.

"Come Holy Spirit" Prayer. Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love.

  1. Send forth your Spirit, and they shall be created.
  2. And You shall renew the face of the earth.

Pentecost dove

This is the priests for life Novena prayer to prepare for the Feast of Pentecost:

Holy Spirit,

At the dawn of creation,

You brought order out of chaos,

Light out of darkness,

Life out of nothingness.

Breathe on us once again,

And change this culture of death

Into a Culture of Life.

Inspire in your people

A spirit of generous welcome

For each and every life,

No matter how unexpected or dependent

That life may be.

Holy Spirit,

You are the Advocate.

As you fill us with Yourself,

Make us advocates

For the unborn and all the vulnerable,

Until we are all united

In the endless life and joy

of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,

One God, forever and ever. Amen.

  1. The media have played an enormous role in conditioning many Irish people to accept the unacceptable...the killing of babies before birth.

We finally have a new, recently launched source of News and Comment. Visit www.frontpage.org, read some of the wonderful opinion pieces like

https://www.frontpage.org/ie/d ifferent-voice/may-25th-the-bl oodiest-day-in-all-our-history /

and consider switching from your usual news outlet to Front Page as it grows and expands. It is already becoming so effective that Facebook blocked Front Page on Tuesday the day after blocking pro-life ads. The Culture of Death is terrified of the beautiful Message of Life.

  1. Google has made it impossible for us at Rosary for Life and Faith (Coastal Rosary) to stay in touch with you. We have had to switch to Mailchimp. However most of your email set ups divert Mailchimp to a side folder or Spam which means that many of you will not see our email. If you would like to reliable here from us and receive our mail's in your primary inbox click this link for instructions

We promise not to send too many emails but it is vital that the prayer warriors of Ireland are able to stay in touch.

God bless

Pastoral Letter on the Occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the Encyclical Humanae Vitae

Praised be Our Lord Jesus Christ! Dear brothers and sisters in Christ! The current year is marked by the memorable event of the 50th anniversary of the encyclical Humanae vitae, in which Blessed Paul VI confirmed the teaching of the constant Magisterium of the Church regarding the transmission of human life. The Bishops and Ordinaries of Kazakhstan want to take this favorable occasion in order to honor the memory and the enduring importance of this encyclical.

During the last meeting of all our priests and religious sisters in Almaty, there were thorough discussions on the theme of the preparation of young people to the sacrament of marriage. There was made the proposal to transmit to young people the main truths of the Magisterium of the Church with regard to the Christian marriage and the sanctity of human life from the moment of its conception.  

We proclaim with the voice of the Magisterium of the Church as we can learn it in the encyclical Humanae vitae and in the documents of other Roman Pontiffs the following demanding truths of Christ’s “sweet yoke and light burden” (Math. 11:30):

1) “The Church in urging men to the observance of the precepts of the natural law, which it interprets by its constant doctrine, teaches that each and every marital act must of necessity retain its intrinsic relationship to the procreation of human life” (Paul VI, Encyclical Humanae vitae, 11).

2) “Excluded is any action which either before, at the moment of, or after sexual intercourse, is specifically intended to prevent procreation—whether as an end or as a means. Neither is it valid to argue, as a justification for sexual intercourse which is deliberately contraceptive, that a lesser evil is to be preferred to a greater one, or that such intercourse would merge with procreative acts of past and future to form a single entity, and so be qualified by exactly the same moral goodness as these. Though it is true that sometimes it is lawful to tolerate a lesser moral evil in order to avoid a greater evil or in order to promote a greater good," it is never lawful, even for the gravest reasons, to do evil that good may come of it (cf. Rom 3. 8) — in other words, to intend directly something which of its very nature contradicts the moral order, and which must therefore be judged unworthy of man, even though the intention is to protect or promote the welfare of an individual, of a family or of society in general. Consequently, it is a serious error to think that a whole married life of otherwise normal relations can justify sexual intercourse which is deliberately contraceptive and so intrinsically wrong” (Paul VI, Encyclical Humanae Vitae, n. 14).

3) “When the spouses through contraception deprive the exercise of their conjugal sexuality of its potential procreative capacity, they attribute to themselves a power which belongs to God alone: the power to decide in the last instance the coming to existence of a human person. They attribute to themselves the qualification of being not the cooperators of the creative power of God, but the ultimate holders of the source of the human life. From this perspective, contraception is to be objectively judged to such an extent illicit, that it could never, for any reason, be justified. To think or to speak the contrary, equals to hold that in human life there could be given situations in which it would be licit not to recognize God as God” (John Paul II, Address to Participants of a Study Seminar on Responsible Procreation, September 17, 1983).

4) “Many think that the Christian teaching, although true, is nonetheless unfeasible, at least in some circumstances. As the Tradition of the Church has constantly taught, God does not command the impossible but every commandment also entails a gift of grace which helps human freedom to fulfill it. Yet constant prayer, frequent recourse to the sacraments and the exercise of conjugal chastity are needed. Today more than yesterday, man is again beginning to feel the need for truth and right reason in his daily experience. Always be ready to say, without ambiguity, the truth about the good and evil regarding man and the family” (John Paul II, Address to Participants in a Study Meeting on Responsible Procreation, June 5, 1987).

5) “Humanae Vitae reasserts the continuity of the Church's doctrine and tradition. […] This teaching not only expresses the unchanged truth of Humanae Vitae, but also reveals the farsightedness with which the problem is treated. […] What was true yesterday, is true also today. The truth expressed in Humanae Vitae does not change; on the contrary, precisely in the light of the new scientific discoveries, its teaching becomes more timely and elicits reflection on the intrinsic value it possesses” (Benedict XVI, Address to Participants in the International Congress on the 40th Anniversary of the Encyclical Humanae vitae, May 10, 2008).

6) “This document, i.e. Humanae vitae, was inspired by the immutable teaching of the Bible and the Gospel, which confirms the norms of the natural law and the irrepressible dictates of conscience regarding respect for life and its transmission by fathers and mothers who practice a responsible parenthood. The document has acquired new and urgent relevance in view of the wounds now being inflicted by civil laws on the holiness of the indissoluble marriage bond and the sacredness of human life even in the maternal womb. In face of saddening defections in the Church and society, We, like Peter, feel compelled to go to Him as the only source of salvation and cry out to Him: Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life” (Paul VI, Homily on June 29, 1978).

7) The entire human history gave sufficient evidence for the fact that a true progress of society depends to a large extent on large families. This fact applies all the more to the life of the Church. Pope Francis reminds us of this truth: “It is a consolation and hope to see so many large families that welcome children as a true gift from God. They know that every child is a blessing” (Pope Francis, General Audience, January 21, 2015).

8) May the following words of Saint John Paul II, the pope of the family, by a light, a strength, a consolation and a joyful courage to all Christian couples and to the young men and young women, who prepare themselves for the life of a Christian marriage and family.

9) “We have the distinctive confirmation that the path of holiness lived together as a couple is possible, beautiful, extraordinarily fruitful, and fundamental for the good of the family, the Church and society. This prompts us to pray the Lord that there be many more married couples who can reveal in the holiness of their lives, the "great mystery" of spousal love, which originates in creation and is fulfilled in the union of Christ with his Church (cf. Eph. 5:22-33). Like every path of holiness, yours too, dear married couples, is not easy. We know how many families in these cases are tempted to discouragement. I am particularly referring to those who are going through the sad event of separation; I am thinking of those who must face illness and those who are suffering the premature death of their spouse or of a child. In these situations, one can bear a great witness to fidelity in love, which is purified by having to pass through the crucible of suffering. Dear married couples, do not be overcome by hardship:  the grace of the Sacrament supports you and helps you constantly to raise your arms to heaven, like Moses. At the same time, I ask all families to hold up the arms of the Church, so that she may never fail in her mission of interceding, consoling, guiding and encouraging” (Homily in the Holy Mass of the Beatification of the couple Luigi Beltrame Quattrocchi and Maria Corsini, October 21, 2001).

10) “May the Virgin Mary, who is the Mother of the Church, also be the Mother of "the Church of the home." Thanks to her motherly aid, may each Christian family really become a "little Church" in which the mystery of the Church of Christ is mirrored and given new life. May she, the Handmaid of the Lord, be an example of humble and generous acceptance of the will of God. May she, the Sorrowful Mother at the foot of the Cross, comfort the sufferings and dry the tears of those in distress because of the difficulties of their families. May Christ the Lord, the Universal King, the King of Families, be present in every Christian home as He was at Cana, bestowing light, joy, serenity and strength” (Apostolic Exhortation Familiaris consortio, 86).

Since 2009 faithful on the island of Cuba have been seeking to have regularly available to them the traditional Roman Rite of the liturgy and the fullness of the Church's doctrine.  As this becomes more of a reality, having been increasingly nourished, these faithful have sought to rechristianize the island.  

Cuba thing

Since 2011, these faithful have been a full member association of the Foederatio Internationalis Una Voce (FIUV).   Every member association of FIUV is independent, though adhering to the principles of the federation.  I am an American of Cuban ancestry living in the United States who has worked with Una Voce Cuba since before its official admission in 2011 to FIUV.  Although Una Voce Cuba has in the past and still must turn to foreign benefactors for help in material needs, this does not imply that other member associations are sponsoring or directly supporting this virtual begging for alms, nor does it mean that Una Voce Cuba is trying to interfere with the good work of other associations ; e.g. Una Voce America or Una Voce France, who have their own work and efforts.

Below the oratory, of which the intial image also was when Mass was being offered.  It is part of a member’s home, in Matanzas, furnished over years:
cuba oratory

In the past we had a small group of benefactors mainly from Europe but also the US, with one or two who have given the bulk of the funds.  That model is at this time no longer functioning.  This campaign seeks the help of a large number of people from around the world, contributing what they can, even if smaller amounts like $10 (US), to supplement and in some cases replace previous almsgivers.  We are asking now because the interest in the Traditional Roman Rite on the island has increased.  This will not be a fast process but with your support it will be fast enough.  The details of what is being asked and for what it is used are below.  Finally, I especially ask the support of Cubans in the United States, their children, and grandchildren.  Many left the island for the sake of preserving the Faith in their families.  Please seek to help the very many who remain.

 ***********

Details:

1)Donations can be made at https://www.gofundme.com/UnaVoceCuba.

2)  Questions should be addressed to the GoFundMe site.  I will provide periodic updates, some of which will address common questions.

*We had thought to use Paypal, but it became too complicated.
**Una Voce Cuba is not 501c3; there is no tax deduction for contributing.  What is given is simply for the good of souls.  

3)  We seek funds through June 8, the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Finally I thank you.

In Iesu, spe unica mundi,

Albert Edward Doskey (Gutiérrez)
Una Voce Cuba:  Vice-President

**********

The items are grouped by priority.  As money is received, it will go to items in priority A and when it is paid, B will be funded, and so on.  If when the campaign is over, we are in the middle of a group, some rearrangement within that group might be necessary:

(A)

1)  A portable altar for places on the island where no access to the churches is permitted but there is a desire for the Mass.
2)  A protective case for the altar when transporting it.
Total cost (including shipping):  $850.

(B)
This set is interesting because if someone were to donate a beautiful – Javier Luis, my colleague and superior in Una Voce Cuba who lives on the island, is insistent on the quality of liturgical items – and well-made chalice, ciborium, and monstrance only the transport costs would remain.   

1)  Chalice :  $982
2)  Ciborium :  $1,164
3)  Monstrace :  $828
4)  Transport in this case for these items will be with an individual who will bring the items to the island himself.  There still much unknown here; the individual might also bring some items, which have been kept in storage.  Possible tariffs are included in this item as well.  If the amount is too high for merely paying for the individual to bring the items, the excess will go to a later priority: $1,000.

The new oratory in an outer part of Havana:
cuba new oratory

(C) The Havana oratory and loans:
Javier Luis whom I mentioned above has a tremendous trust in providence.  He accomplished this oratory in Havana by arranging loans. Those loans need to be paid-back.  

1)  Repaying Loans:  $2,500.
2)  Air conditioner for the Havana chapel.  Since the windows must be kept closed because of the sound, the chapel is stifling.  An A/C unit needs to be bought and shipped:  $450

Multiplier: To offset the mandatory percentages taken by payment processors and the inevitable Cuban complications, the initial amount needed, $8,024, has a multiplier 109%.

Total Campaign:  $8,747.

God bless your kindness and generosity. We will pray mightily for our donors. 

 

Now, we know our boys in the Vatican are fashion-game strong (even though Hipster Pope ditched the red kicks because they were so mainstream BXVI), but sponsoring the 2018 Met Gala seems a bit too into the game.

The Met Gala has been an annual event since 1948 and celebrates the theme of that year's exhibition (curated by the Costume Institute). The exhibition sets the tone for the formal dress of the night, since guests are expected to choose their fashion to match the theme of the exhibit. It’s a fundraiser, alright—it raises bookoo bucks for…the Costume Institute, a.k.a. the fashion department. Worthy cause.

The 2018 theme? Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination

The Vatican loaned sacred items from its own collections to the most pointless, gaudy and secular “Party of the Year”.

Ed Pentin has an explanation: The Pontifical Council for Culture chose to collaborate with an exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York because of the Met’s significance to culture and potential global outreach, but officials were unaware of the widely criticized gala that took place on Monday night. 

Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, president of the Pontifical Council, had been wanting for some time for the dicastery to focus on the relationship between fashion, art and faith, and so agreed to collaborate with the exhibition which opens May 10 and runs until October 8.

“We wanted to be involved and those behind it had good intentions,” a Vatican official told the Register. “As the Met is one of the most significant cultural institutions in the world, and our remit is to engage the world, we see it as important.” 

But the Vatican was unaware of the Met Gala, and that the evening event would be used by some celebrities to dress up in a way deemed by many to be a sacrilegious mockery of the Church. 

Okay, Ed… The poor Vatican didn’t know this gun was loaded. *insert winky-face emoji* They only sent Cardinal Dolan and Fr. James Martin to represent because they were trying to convert everybody at the Gala. Show 'em a little mercy, ya know--the Church of Accompaniment and all that jazz:

Card Dolan Met

The NYTimes has a different take: "If the Vatican doesn’t see a problem with it — and it has given a seal of approval, lending approximately 50 pieces from the Sistine Chapel Sacristy — then should you? The reasoning seems to be: Anything that celebrates Catholicism and opens it up to a broader audience is a good thing, and these exhibitions are that."

You’re right, NY Times—Yay for the celebration of Catholicism! Pumped up on Catholic creativity, the intellectually unarmed celebs showed up in costumes that did their own evangelizing.

Sarah JPHoly hen fruit, there's a face for radio! But if you can get past that, do you see how you get the full life of Christ in one hat? If there were illiterate, tribal peoples left in NYC, they would totally be able to understand the Incarnation through that hat. (That's not Bruce Jenner, by the way.) 

KatySee how our favorite Katy is all done up in wings? She went to the Vatican a couple weeks ago and met the Pope. They were amazing at each other and now she’s every little Catholic girl’s angel. 

dolan martin MetOne young starlet dressed up as the Church’s own little Jimmy Martin, so cute. (Nobody's saying, but we think the other one is Rosie O'Donnell.)

RihannaWait, is that the Po — nah, sorry everybody! False alarm. That’s Yul Brynner in a bedazzled miter. (I know, I thought he'd passed years ago. Loved his work in The Ten Commandments) 590b1af9e84a9204f74c5f2418bd3181

MadonnaLook! It's the immaterial girl!  AARP spokesman, Madonna, just modified her latest Catholic-mocking concert tour costume; added some extra fabric. Then she performed "Like a Prayer" in white lingerie, and everybody winced. Far's we can tell, though, the Poligrip held throughout the whole number. (Told ya, Madge, you ol' worry wart!)

inspired breitbartCultural appropriation anyone? Ah, yes, mocking Our Lady of Sorrows--now that's guts bimbo-ing. Nothing says "I'll do anything for attention" like disrespecting the religious devotions of millions of people south of the border. After all, it's not like they're going to go blow anything up in retaliation or anything. They're Christians!  

zendayaOh! Joan of Arc...but sexy! I get it: let's take a pot shot at the patron saint of France--the most secularized formerly Catholic country in Europe.  Gutsy...really gutsy. She'd better watch out. Somebody might throw a Freedom fry at her.

Met gayWell look at you! (Looks like somebody's gonna need a taller teepee, or a smaller toupee)  The Vatican sponsored that? Of course, and if you can guess the gender, apparently Cardinal Coccopalmerio will send you his Judy Garland hair bow from The Wizard of Oz. 

There was more to this gayla...a lot more... but I've gotta run. I guess I'd be offended if I thought these lost goats had come up with this on their own.  But like everything else they do, they've got nothing without us. Even their attempts to be "outrageous" really don't work too well without Christian eyes (and morals) at which to poke with their well-manicured cloven hooves. 

In this case, they needed the Vatican of Pope Francis to set up their scandal fix, not realizing that it's a bit late for that. We expect nothing more from Francis or from the eunuchs and imbeciles of pop culture.  They are the victims here...not us.

Onward and awkward for them. Long live Christ the King for us!

9am to 6pm
 
As the Catholic Church undergoes the worst crisis in her history, Michael Matt will explain how the Catholic family can survive, keep the Faith, and contribute mightily to the worldwide Catholic restoration movement. From homeschooling and fighting the culture war to the Latin Mass and the Rosary the Catholic family is absolutely key to Catholic counterrevolution.

Family Life International's Conference 2018:  Humanae vitae, Pope Paul’s VI’s last encyclical, is undoubtedly one of the 20th century’s most prophetic documents. Rejected by modernity and even by many lay Catholics, priests and bishops, the predictions of the encyclical have all, nonetheless, been fulfilled, so that, within 50 years of its publication, our world, in many ways, differs little from the Biblical description of the time of Noah or of Sodom.

This year’s Conference, by joining the dots, will show the connection between Our Lady’s messages at Fatima and Akita with the rejection of Humanae vitae and the consequences for the 21st Century.

The Internet is exploding with coverage of Iowa governor's historic signature. Today, while protesters outside chanted "My body, My Choice", Gov. Kim Reynolds signed into law the strictest abortion regulation in the US: 

From the Chicago Tribune: Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds on Friday signed a law banning most abortions if a fetal heartbeat can be detected, or at around six weeks of pregnancy, marking the strictest abortion regulation in the nation — but setting the state up for a lengthy court fight....The ban, set to take effect on July 1, has propelled Iowa to the front of a push among conservative statehouses jockeying to enact restrictive regulations on the medical procedure. Mississippi passed a law earlier this year banning abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, but it's on hold after a court challenge.

...Backers of the so-called heartbeat bill — which didn't get a single Democratic vote in the Legislature during final passage — expressed hope it could challenge Roe vs. Wade, the landmark 1973 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that established women have a right to terminate pregnancies until a fetus is viable. Conservatives say an influx of right-leaning judicial appointments under President Donald Trump could make it a possibility.

local news kim

From the Associated PressIowa Gov. Kim Reynolds on Friday signed a law banning most abortions if a fetal heartbeat can be detected, or at around six weeks of pregnancy, marking the strictest abortion regulation in the nation — but setting the state up for a lengthy court fight... Reynolds acknowledged that the new law would likely face litigation that could put it on hold, but said: "This is bigger than just a law, this is about life, and I'm not going to back down."

Reynolds signed the law surrounded by children from a local Christian school and children related to supporters.

Maggie DeWitte, who leads the group Iowans for Life, called Reynolds' move "historic" and added: "She is following through on her pledge to the people of Iowa that she is 100 percent pro-life."

The bill signing came shortly after the Iowa affiliates of Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union warned that they would sue the governor if she signed the bill, which the Republican-controlled Legislature approved during after-hours votes earlier in the week.

From DesMoinesRegister: As Reynolds inked the bill, backers' cheers nearly drowned out the echoing chorus of “My body, my choice” shouted by protesters just outside the door.

“I believe that all innocent life is precious and sacred,” Reynolds said from her formal office before signing a bill that will outlaw nearly all abortions in the state. “And as governor, I have pledged to do everything in my power to protect it. And that’s what I’m doing today.”

Senate File 359 will take effect July 1, though Planned Parenthood of the Heartland and the American Civil Liberties Union of Iowa said they plan to quickly  challenge the law.

Under the legislation, physicians will be barred from performing most abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected. Experts said that heartbeat can be heard about six weeks into a pregnancy — often before a woman realizes she’s pregnant.

 

COMMENT: Listen to them scream for the blood of babies.  For this mob, a baby of six weeks is just a bit of tissue that can be vacuumed out and disposed of. For people who are demanding the right to kill even partially-born babies, this is unthinkable.   

I wonder what it’s like to be them.  How does it feel to be standing in the street, demanding the blood of babies—even those in the process of being born? To sit and watch baby take that first breath, still connected to her mother by the umbilical cord, doctors and nurses standing by. But instead of receiving the baby, cutting the cord, giving her that first tiny diaper, wrapping her up in a blanket, putting a little hat on her head…. they stab the baby in the back of the head, pull her from mother’s womb, and drop her into a stainless steel basin. Pro-death barbarians want that—are demanding that — so, yes, banning the murder of a baby at six weeks for them must seem positively inhuman.  

Pray for Governor Kim Reynolds, as the demons will be all over her now. Is any politician in America able to stand up against Hell? We're going to find out, I guess.

May God watch over and protect the most courageous governor in America.

COMMENT: Speaking of child sacrifice, does this sound familiar?

"Diodorus also relates that relatives were forbidden to weep and that when Agathocles defeated Carthage, the Carthaginian nobles believed they had displeased the gods by substituting low-born children for their own children. They attempted to make amends by sacrificing 200 children of the best families at once, and in their enthusiasm actually sacrificed 300 children."

"... but with full knowledge and understanding they themselves offered up their own children, and those who had no children would buy little ones from poor people and cut their throats as if they were so many lambs or young birds; meanwhile the mother stood by without a tear or moan; but should she utter a single moan or let fall a single tear, she had to forfeit the money, and her child was sacrificed nevertheless; and the whole area before the statue was filled with a loud noise of flutes and drums that the cries of wailing should not reach the ears of the people.

"Tophet is Moloch, which was made of brass; and they heated him from his lower parts; and his hands being stretched out, and made hot, they put the child between his hands, and it was burnt; when it vehemently cried out; but the priests beat a drum, that the father might not hear the voice of his son, and his heart might not be moved."

Glenn Beck after the fact

Editor's Comment: A quick word of thanks to friends of this website who offered prayers for me this morning. My objective going in was simple: this is not a traditional Catholic audience, so don’t overstate the case and risk causing more scandal among the tens of thousands for whom all this would be brand new. Glenn Beck and his team could not have been more accommodating. As for my decision to accept his invitation, I have no regrets and will do it again. The Remnant will speak to anyone, anywhere and at any time when it comes to spreading the Traditional Catholic message. Glenn Beck has a significant following, and I believe it was my duty to accept the invitation and to let his large audience know that there is serious Catholic resistance to the Modernist agenda of Pope Francis. Let's pray for Glenn Beck—an obvious casualty of the Modernist Revolution in the Church. In any case, I’m grateful to him for the opportunity. - Michael J. Matt
