New From Remnant TV
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.)
Sunday Sermons: Father speaks about Modernism's impact on the Church. Beginning with St. Pius X's war against the "rats and rodents" infesting the Church, he concludes with a few words on Mother Teresa and how Modernism impacted even this holy and courageous woman.
SUNDAY SERMON. Father offers commentary on Satan's recorded words in Holy Scripture, especially his desperate attempt to tempt Christ in the desert. Why did St. Augustine call the Cross "Satan's trap"?
Father uses St. Paul’s Epistle to the Galatians and the story of Jesus and the ten lepers as foundation for his discussion of the Old Law and a pharisaical approach to the Gentiles. Is St. Paul’s anger at the Judaizers the same as the anger many critics today express against Traditional Catholics-- those they accuse of being the new Judaizers for insisting on restoring the Old Latin Mass, the old moral theology and the rest of the traditions of the Church? What do you think?
