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?

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.
Another sacrilegious scandal at a big papal pep really--this time in Manila. Why is the Vicar treated like God, while God is treated like a bag of Doritos? What part does the institutionalized abuse of Communion in the hand play in this ongoing outrage?
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?

New From Remnant TV...
Michael Matt and Christopher Ferrara consult moral theology, historical precedents and practical considerations in order to answer the fundamental question: Can Catholics in good conscience vote for Donald Trump?
The political elites hate him on both sides of the Atlantic. Why? Because he's not on board with their precious New World Order. RTV takes a closer look at President Trump's inauguration speech and its ramifications. Trump is far from perfect, but so was Constantine...and look how God used him.
