Michael J. Matt interviews Dr. John Rao -- student of the great Dr. Dietrich von Hildebrand and current president of the Roman Forum (founded by von Hildebrand) -- at the 2017 Summer Symposium on Lake Garda, in Italy. As plans for the 2018 Symposium are finalized, Matt asks Rao: What is this? What's it all about? Whatâ€™s the overall impact of this major traditional Catholic event that now features top notch professors, activists, writers, Vatican journalists, bishops and priests and participants from all over the world. This video is being posted as an accompanying feature to a new RemnantNewspaper.com article by Dr. Rao detailing plans and speakers for the 2018 Summer Symposium.
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.
Father asks why Pope Francis, citing the Gospel reference to the Pharisee and the sinner, once again seems to be smearing faithful Catholics as fitting the bill of being pharisaical. Who exactly are these Christians the Pope keeps singling out for ridicule, and what's his point?
Hello, again ladies and gentlemen, Michael Matt for The Remnant Underground.
So, did you watch the debate last night? Holy cow! What was that!? I don’t know if I've ever seen anything quite like that. The poor man -- after the first fifteen minutes, the cold and calculating Grandma Clinton had him up against the ropes, and it sort of went down from there. (Note to Trump Debate Team: Tell the Donald not to get all temperamental when Grandma Clinton accuses him of being too temperamental for the presidency.)
Father continues his series on the traditional teaching and understanding of Scripture's most fundamental lessons. This week we learn all about the many different epiphanies of Christ which are celebrated during Christmastide, and how they reflect the foundational elements of salvation history.
Using a clip from the 1950 film, "Cheaper By the Dozen", Michael Matt shows how yesterday's liberals are today's conservatives. Question: Are Catholic couples who leave family size up to God really "bad stewards"?
