Happy New Year from The Remnant Family to yours!

Dystopian novels have been chilling readers to the bone for decades. Orwell's, "Nineteen Eighty-Four", Huxley's "Brave New World", Walker Percy's "Love In the Ruins". 

These classics provide terrifying glimpses of a harsh and colorless world where human beings have been cowed into a state of perpetual shell-shock as their humanity is stripped away by governments exercising ultimate control over life and death.

In what might just be the most dramatic nine minutes of television you’ll watch in 2019, a prince of the Church manifests the classic symptoms of SRS (Spine Reduction Syndrome) the moment Fox News hosts ask him to provide a Catholic response to abortion becoming the coolest thing in New York since Frank Sinatra.

Cardinal Dolan was brought in not as theologian to explain the hypostatic union or anything particularly challenging. His job was merely to reiterate Catholic teaching on the intrinsic evil of murdering preborn babies, and maybe conjure up a little manly angst along the way.

Pretty simple assignment. But that's when all stupid broke loose.

The Fox and Friends team pitched one slowly-spinning softball after another to him and we watch, astonished, as each one floats slowly over home plate, sits there for a minute, and then finally sinks into yet another strike, with the batter still lookin'.

Check out the Syrup of Ipecac Interview:

Outspoken Christian and New Orleans Saints tight end, Ben Watson, fired the following from his Twitter account shortly after the "Catholic" Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, signed the Reproductive Health Act into law:

"It is a sad and evil day when the murder of our most innocent and vulnerable is celebrated with such overwhelming exuberance.

We SHOULD be supporting and encouraging the building of families which are fundamental to any society.

By not doing so, we invite consequences untold."

Benjamin Watson is married to his wife, Kristen Watson and the couple has five kids:Grace Makayla Watson, Naomi Love Watson, Judah Watson, Eden Moriah Watson, Isaiah Watson. They got married in 2005 after meeting at a campus party and ever since, they have continued to build their marriage on the strong virtues of Christianity.

Take that, Colin Kaepernick. And, while you're at it, take this too: 

Thank you, Mr. Watson. May God bless you and your beautiful family.

New York reached a new depth of evil on January 22, 2019, when The Reproductive Health Act passed with a 38-28 vote and was signed into law by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo -- a...ahem...Catholic. 

"With the signing of this bill, we are sending a clear message that whatever happens in Washington, women in New York will always have the fundamental right to control their own body," Cuomo said.

Yep, you're so woke, Andy!

On the other hand, what about the little 9-month-old's fundamental right to control her own body? I guess Andy, an obvious misogynist, is only down with feminists old enough to vote. So, it's open season on little women.

New from RTV. . . 

For God's sake--and the sake of our dying nation--please share this powerful sermon with friends and family.

In this "Sunday Sermon from South St. Paul," Father explains the real horrors of abortion. Quoting President Trump's address at this year’s National Right to Life March in Washington, Father observes: "When you look into the eyes of a newborn baby, you can see the beauty and the majesty of God's Creation"-- beauty and majesty which are now under assault in America and indeed all around the world.

So terrible is this assault, in fact, that Father pleads with his congregation to recognize abortion as a sign of demonic possession, and that this war cannot be won without God's intervention, exorcism, and the spiritual weapons of prayer and penance.


fus grottoAt a campus proudly devoted to the Mother of God, it is not unusual to see Franciscan University students praying at the Marian Grotto, even in inclement weather. 

CATHOLIC-BASHING. It’s something we might as well get used to. As secularist society grows increasingly intolerant of all things authentically Catholic, we should certainly anticipate Catholic institutions of higher learning coming under fire, at least those whose administrations are disinclined to invite the likes of Father James Martin to deliver the commencement addresses.

The so-called “Newman Guide schools” are getting hit from all sides.

The administrators at Christendom College, for example, are—according to blogger Simcha Fisher—so fanatical in their enforcement of rules of Christian morality on campus that they need to be held accountable for any crime of sexual assault that happens to take place off campus. (Huh?)

That particular hatchet job was served up by a woman whose husband, by the way, was so eager to attack a little group of traditional Catholics up in New Hampshire last week that he crawled into bed with the Christophobic Southern Poverty Law Center to get the job done. 

We knew it would happen sooner or later. This just in from VaticanNews.com:

“With a new Apostolic Letter issued "motu proprio", Pope Francis has suppressed the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, which was established thirty years ago by Pope St. John Paul II.

…The Pontifical Commission had also exercised the authority of the Holy See “over various institutes and religious communities which it has erected which have as their ‘proper Rite’ the ‘extraordinary form’ of the Roman Rite and observe the previous traditions of the religious life.” It was also tasked with looking after and promoting “the pastoral care of the faithful attached to the antecedent Latin liturgical tradition, present in various parts of the world.”

In the motu proprio suppressing the Ecclesia Dei Commission, Pope Francis notes that “the Institutes and Religious Communities which habitually celebrate in the extraordinary form have today found their own stability of number and life.”

“With the Apostolic Letter, the Holy Father assigns the duties of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei in their entirety to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, “within which a specific Section will be set up in order to continue the work of vigilance, promotion, and protection” of the suppressed Commission.”

AS THE DEMONS and their Democrat allies beat the war drums against all things true, good and beautiful, let us take a moment to thank God that even today, in 2019—in the wake of so many terrible advances against the Cross, the Family and the Unborn—our children can nevertheless still watch and see the leaders of America stand against most of the rest of the world in defense of what we Christians hold most sacred. 

We’ve come to the point now where our President and Vice-President can be vigorously defended just on the basis of who their enemies are and how much they hate God and the unborn. 


vigano and mccarrickArchbishops Viganò and McCarrick

Yesterday a fourth document was released by Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò.  The document is a beautiful open letter to Archbishop Ted McCarrick, urging him to repent.

Remnant Editor’s Note: The more the Vatican attempts to discredit Archbishop Viganò and pretend the problem is not homosexuality in the priesthood but rather clericalism, abuse of power, and whatever else the Vatican can think of, the more Archbishop Viganò emerges as a hero of practicing Catholics everywhere and history’s last man on earth who had the courage to stand and resist the Vatican's reign of spiritual and moral terror.  As The Remnant has maintained since this story broke in August 2018, we stand with Archbishop Viganò and insist that the Vatican take his most credible charges seriously without delay. A failure to do so on their part will thoroughly discredit the pontificate of Pope Francis not only in the here and now but in the pages of history itself. And if no action is taken and the coverup continues, we at The Remnant will do all in our power to make sure that happens. V is for Viganò.  MJM
