Michael J. Matt comments on the new prayer video of Pope Francis. With the world blowing up all around us, babies being aborted by the millions, marriage all but destroyed and the Christian family on life support—why is the pope so worried about us all going green? Is there something else going on here?
It’s like the lyrics for John Lennon’s “Imagine” are now influencing papal policy. God help us what is going on.
By the way, do you love the pope? That seems to be all that matters to the neo-Catholics.But just how relevant is that?

Our Sunday Sermon for the Fourth Sunday in Advent tackles the question of St. John the Baptist harboring doubts that Christ was God. Did you know that? Either did Father, and yet Pope Francis seems to think he did. What do you think?
NOTICE: The Argument to the Month has opened up an overflow room in order to accomodate an expected high turnout.
One night only. Live from St. Paul, Minnesota: two heavyweights--one from the traditionalist camp, the other from the neo-Catholic camp--will square off over one of the most controversial issues of the post-conciliar era: Has the Catholic Church abandoned the Great Commission of Jesus Christ to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost? Chris Ferrara and Mark Shea will take the gloves off on an issue that matters to everyone who calls himself a Catholic. (TUESDAY, January 12, 2016. St. Paul, Minnesota.)
Pope Francis said Catholics need not "be like rabbits," that there are "so many ways out" of be saddled with too many of those "gifts from God" called babies. Senator Santorum is upset, the Vatican apologized, and Mike and Chris are wondering what in thunder is going on!
Michael J. Matt takes a look at some startling statistics regarding violence in schools, the dropout rate, a rising police presence, metal detectors, guard dogs and all the rest of the measures being taken to prevent kids from killing each other in the classrooms.
Cardinal Burke banished, Bishop Athanasius Schneider encourages resistance, journalists speak of crisis in the Church. Michael Matt and Christopher Ferrara discuss growing schism under the disastrous pontificate of Pope Francis.
Before the recent Catholic Identity Conference, I sat down with Bishop Athanasius Schneider and asked him a few questions about the Traditional Latin Mass, Amoris Laetitia, Cardinal Burke and the Dubia, Communion in the hand, the coming desecration of the Eucharist, resisting Pope Francis, and the increasingly obvious failure that is the Second Vatican Council.
Please keep in mind that it was not my intent to “grill the bishop”. I have known him for some time and have come to respect him more than I can say. It was my intent to assist our readers and friends around the world to get to know this most courageous churchman—a man of faith and deep appreciation for the traditions of Holy Mother Church.
A follow-up to last week's episode, Michael discusses the cultural void and how answers can be found by rebuilding Christian culture in the home rather than trying to ban Katy, Miley and Gaga. Plus, a word about the great Pilgrimage to Chartres, France -- Catholic counterculture in action.
The Remnant Underground takes the next step. From a catacomb under construction, Michael Matt discusses the future of the Underground, the building of a post-President Hillary RTV network, before going topside for an interview of Dr. Alan Keyes.
