Michael J. Matt From the Editor’s Desk: Bruce Jenner and the Fall of the American Empire.
Patrick Archbold Don’t Get Fooled Again: I know a setup when I see one. When it comes to the Synod, I don’t buy any of the damage control for a second. They want us to drop our guard; they want us to think that we defeated their revolution the last time around; they want us to think that even if they try, that the Pope will stop it. Sorry, not gonna do it and here’s why.
Jesse B. Russell, Ph.D. The Pope and the Platypus: The Reign of John Paul IV. Our NeoCatholic friends still are unable to see Pope Francis for who he is—no matter how much scandal or error he spreads. When NeoCatholics look at Pope Francis, they see an image in their mind of Pope John Paul II.

Christopher A. Ferrara The Situation is Officially Out of Control: As Francis continues to do whatever he pleases and to say whatever he feels like saying, even when he is aware that “it may sound… heretical,” the sense that the Church has “lost its compass” and is now “a rudderless ship,” as noted by Cardinal Burke, continues to spread among the faithful.

Is there nobody of any intellectual stature left in our English church, or the Roman church, to frame the argument against Christianity’s slide into just going with the flow of social and cultural change?” - Matthew Parris, atheist -
Archbishop Diarmuid Martin of Dublin on Ireland's Fall into the Pagan Sea..."I ask myself, most of these young people who voted yes are products of our Catholic school system for 12 years. I’m saying there’s a big challenge there to see how we get across the message of the Church." Ya think, Excellency? Well played, Vatican II!
David Martin But, Wait! There’s Help on the Way: The Pope is Coming to America
Chris Jackson Is God Purging His Church? It is in the context of increasing government and establishment hostility to bedrock tenets of Christianity that the following advice shines. Fr. Fulton Sheen first gave this address on February 7, 1937 and it’s positively prophetic!
