The Mike ‘n’ Chris show examines the latest publicity stunt out of the Vatican. In this Year of Mercy, Pope Francis is sending out 1,000 priests to absolve sins that every parish priest can already absolve. Why only 1000? What is this, a mercy monopoly? Does any of this make sense to you?
By the way, are the Missionaries of Mercy supposed to hand out mercy coupons to anti-Semites and Mafiosi too? Or is it just sexual sins? Are we witnessing a “Luther-fication” of the Sacrament of Confession? God help us, what’s next!

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.)
In what surely must be one of the most courageous sermons of 2018, this diocesan priest takes the gloves off and asks: "What's it going to be? The constant teaching established by Scripture, doctors and fathers of the Church, sainted popes and God Himself? Or that which rests on the whim of Pope Francis, who seems to think the Catholic Churchâ€™s binding teaching is whatever his opinion happens to be." God help us, what is this man thinking, that in the middle of the most outrageous clerical sex scandal to date he decides itâ€™s time to go after capital punishment.
Did Pope Francis get the Church's teaching on Confession wrong? Sunday Sermons from South St. Paul tackles the question. Plus, did the Risen Christ appear to Mary first? Why did He not admonish the Apostles in the Upper Room for abandoning Him on Calvary? What can we learn about Doubting Thomas, mercy and the establishment of Sacred Tradition?
Terror in Paris: From Christ the King to the Police State
Michael Matt speaks of the real conspiracy--apostasy and the destruction of the human element of the Catholic Church, which is leading to the destablization of formerly Christian Europe and chaos throughout the New World Order. But there is hope, according to Michael.
Michael Matt interviews the former president of Una Voce International--English barrister, Lt. Colonel James Bogle on the situation in the Church under Pope Francis, silent bishops, religious liberty, racism and Catholic culture. What built Europe? Why are so many people from all over the world fascinated by Europe? What brings tourists flocking to Europe's greatest attractions? Two words: Catholic Church! This is a preview of the RT documentary on the Roman Forum in Italy, to be released later this month.
Down in the catacombs, Michael Matt discusses the latest front in the war against God: the gender war.
Fifty years ago traditional Catholics were speaking out against women dressing as men. Were they stark raving mad?
Today, such talk is ridiculed as dangerous fundamentalism, of course, but given the fact that we now have a massive attempt to blur the lines between women and men and boys and girls, maybe the traditionalists were onto something.
