Catholic Action

Michael J. Matt | Editor

Remnant TV was in Rome this past week covering the Vatican’s clerical sexual abuse summit on the “protection of minors”. It seemed a dismal assignment, to be sure, but the reason it was necessary for The Remnant to be in the Eternal City was so we could throw in with our traditional Catholic allies in Rome who’d organized an act of formal resistance to the Vatican sham summit.

Going in, we all knew that the ultimate goal of the summit was to establish child abuse—not rampant homosexuality in the priesthood—as the main cause of a crisis in the Catholic Church which now rivals that of the Protestant Revolt. (Remnant TV coverage of this event as well as the Vatican summit itself, can be found on The Remnant’s YouTube channel, and for your convenience is laid out below:

REMNANT in ROME: Michael Matt Interviews Roberto de Mattei

Reporting from Rome, RTV's Michael J. Matt interviews Rome's premier traditional Catholic leader, Roberto de Mattei of the Lepanto Foundation. The two men cover the fall of Francis, the Vatican's sexual abuse summit, homosexuality in the priesthood, Francis's "father and grandfather" (Carinal Martini and Carl Rahner) the revolution of Vatican II and the Catholic counterrevolution. Plus, the role of Our Lady in traditional Catholic resistance. To learn more about Roberto de Mattei: http://www.robertodemattei.it/en/

 

 

A VATICAN FANTASY: Michael Matt's Pre-Summit Wishful Thinking

Walking along the Borgo Pio in Rome, Michael Matt shares some humorous thoughts on what might have been at this week's clerical sexual abuse summit had the Vatican not lost its Catholic mind years ago. It's just wishful thinking at this point:

 

GAME OVER, FRANCIS! (Michael Matt's Vatican Farewell)

Reporting from Rome, Michael Matt ends on a positive note. Francis has gone too far. He has no support outside of his inner circle of fools. The media, the abuse victims, the traditionalists -- they're all united on one thing: Francis can't be trusted; Francis is a huge problem. Michael is convinced that now, more than ever before, traditional Catholics need to advance now that it's clear in Rome that the great façade of Vatican II is collapsing before our eyes.

 

PINK ELEPHANT SUMMIT: Vatican Coverup Continues (Michael Matt in Rome)

CNN's Delia Gallagher asks Cardinal Cupich the million-dollar question just before Cardinal Cupich loses his red hat. Reporting from the Vatican, Michael Matt comments on what's fast becoming a 'Pink Elephant Summit, with everyone ignoring the real problem but going on and on about 'synodality,' 'collegiality', 'pilgrim church', 'accompaniment', 'path forward', 'radical listening'--pretty much anything BUT the pink elephant in the room. And now these guys claim that because they've been listening to abuse victims here in Rome this week, they now know it's time to get serious about the abuse of minors. Are they joking? In 2019, these grown men had to travel all the way to Rome to figure out how serious abuse is? If this is true, they should resign for simply being way too out of touch with reality to be entrusted with the handing of this worldwide crisis. By the way, when are these men going to get around to apologizing to God for having done nothing while His bride was raped again and again over the course of decades?

 

CHURCH in CRISIS: Pope Francis, Vatican Losing Control

Vatican journalist, Sandro Magister, asks the million-euro question today at a major Summit press conference here in Rome: "What about homosexuality?" The Archbishop of Malta's answer was epic -- so epic, in fact, that Michael asks the natural follow-up: "Well, was John Paul 'the Great' homophobic then, too?" Michael Matt offers a late-night follow-up from Vatican City in which he points out how Vatican ineptitude is such that all sides are growing impatient with Francis, including the angry protestors outside of the press hall today calling the Pope and the Summit out. Michael expresses solidarity with sexual abuse survivors who, not unlike survivors of spiritual abuse, have been intimidated over the years, bullied, and harassed by the same abusive shepherds. By the way, why is Cardinal Cupich playing a leading role here at the Summit on Abuse when he recently awarded Uncle Ted McCarrick the "Spirit of Francis Award"? And, finally, what's the point of all this? Both the crisis and the Vatican response, Michael argues, indicated why the Traditional Catholic counterrevolution was right all along.

REMNANT TV in ROME: Lay Catholics Stand & Resist

Reporting from the Vatican, Michael Matt explains why Catholics around the world will not leave the Church despite the sexual abuse crisis but, rather, are resolved now more than ever to stay, stand and resist. On the eve of the Vatican Summit on clerical sexual abuse, Traditional Catholics stage a silent demonstration in Rome, followed by the answer to their prayer in the form of an eleventh-hour intervention from Cardinals Burke and Brandmuller. Plus, a major press conference provides opportunity for traditional Catholics to present the Catholic case to the mainstream media.

This just in from George Weigel of FirstThings.com:

Has it occurred to anyone else debating the perverse verdict rendered against Cardinal George Pell, which convicted him of “historic sexual abuse,” that the cardinal did not have to return to his native Australia to face trial? As a member of the College of Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church and a Vatican official, Pell holds a Vatican diplomatic passport and citizenship of Vatican City State. Were he guilty, he could have stayed put in the extraterritorial safety of the Vatican enclave, untouchable by the Australian authorities. But because Cardinal Pell knows he is innocent, he was determined to go home to defend his honor—and, in a broader sense, to defend his decades of work rebuilding the Catholic Church in Australia, the living parts of which owe a great deal to his leadership and courage.

Cardinal Pell and I have been friends for over fifty years, and in the past two and a half decades of that friendship I have been appalled at the calumnies to which he has been subjected, in both the hyper-secularist Australian media and in Church circles determined to hang on to their dreams of post–Vatican II revolution.

READ THE REST HERE.

REMNANT COMMENT: It's no secret that Mr. Weigel and The Remnant have had our differences of opinion. However, mere common sense tells us that all Catholics have a vested interest in decrying the travesty and obvious miscarriage of justice where Cardinal Pell is concerned. 

The Mystical Body of Christ again stands accused before Pilate, and the pagan empire that crushed Christendom and holds us all captive, acknowledges no distinction whatsoever between traditional Catholics and the so-called neo-Catholics. As far as they are concerned, all practicing Catholics will eventually need to either deny Christ or be gagged, jailed, or put to death--whatever it takes to silence His voice in the modern world. 

The fact that Cardinal George Pell is now locked up in solitary confinement for 23 hours out of the day while Mr. Ted McCarrick runs around Kansas free as a vulture should remove any doubt about this.

The persecution begins anew…and all Christians had better watch their backs.

Fr. askes the question: At this week's clerical sex abuse summit, will the Vatican finally point the accusatory finger back at itself, or will it again reference the "Great Accuser" and continue to place blame on others while ignoring the 900-pound gorilla in the parlor? When will Rome get serious about the homosexual subculture in the Church?

I’m writing tonight in the shadow of St. Peter’s Basilica, having just participated in the Stop the Silence public demonstration organized by our friends and allies of the international coalition called Acies Ordinata here in Rome. This demonstration concluded with a press conference in which Catholic representatives from Poland, Canada, the US, Italy, France, and England addressed mainstream media reporters from the AP, ABCNews, the Tablet, and many others.

one world religion thumb

From the Editor's Desk, Michael Matt connects the dots from the Second Vatican Council, to the 1986 Assisi Prayer Meeting, to Cardinal Bergoglio's support of the URI, to Cardinal Dolan's 2015 Interfaith prayer service in New York, and finally to Francis's 2019 joint statement with the Egyptian Imam on "God-willed diversity and plurality of religions". Are we seeing the establishment of one ecumenical world religion? By the way, Pope Francis didn't come up with any of this. Plus, Pope John Paul called for WHAT at Gandhi's tomb back in 1986?

  • PRO-LIFE PREZ: Main Reason They Hate Trump

    Sunday Sermons of South St. Paul. Father tackles the question of the Vatican's rediscovered "seamless garment"-- calling it a 'filthy rag that needs to be burned' And then he moves on to President Trump, hailing him -- from the PULPIT, mind you -- as the 'most pro-life president in 45 years. Given the volatile political climate at present, we really wonder how many other priests in America would have the courage to give this sermon. Many, we hope and pray.

    As the Year of Mercy closes, Pope Francis extends permission to priests of the Society of St. Pius X to hear Confessions. But, the rumors mills were wrong. The Pope did not regularize the SSPX. Why not? Is this a good thing? Where do you come down on the "schism" of the SSPX. Michael Matt goes into why some Catholics are breathing a sigh of relief this Thanksgiving.
