New from Remnant TV...fires of hell thumb

This Sunday Sermon from So. Saint Paul, Father traces the powerful devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus all the way back to Our Lady and St. Joseph.

Fast-forwarding to recent years, Father credits his dedication to the Traditional Latin Mass to the fact that he first began offering that Mass on First Fridays, due to the First Friday Devotion to the Sacred Heart that made this one of the strongest TLM parishes in the country.

A couple of nights ago (June 20, 2020), the skateboard-wielding,  peaceful-protesting representatives of the Lamest Generation in American history managed, in their inconsolable grief, to stumble upon an old statue of the father of modern Freemasonry (video below)--Grand Master Albert Pike. 

With no real idea who he was, the brave Statue Killers knocked down old Albert, scribbled a few F-words on the stone base of his statue and set him on fire.

So much for the Brotherhood of Man! 

The irony was rich, of course, but lost on our benighted rebels without a clue, who evidently thought they were sticking it to Christian America by knocking down the statue of the man the late, great Solange Hertz described in the pages of The Remnant as a "Luciferian high priest." 

Albert Pike (along with the "Goddess of Freemasonry" that rested at his feet) had been honored in the Judiciary Square neighborhood for 120 years. Back in 1901, a dedication ceremony included thousands of Masons marching in a celebratory parade in honor of their most cherished son. 

Little did they know that one day the Catholic-bashing, Christophobic mob they'd incited worldwide would tear their Grand Master apart and burn him in effigy.

It was said of Pike that he "found Freemasonry in a log cabin and left it in a Temple", since he is buried in the House of the Temple, headquarters of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, at 16th and S Streets NW, in Washington, D.C.

Some of the old legends of the Swamp (on which Washington, D.C. was built) say that the reason the buildings in our nation's capital are so low to the ground (no skyscrapers) is because by law none can rise above the  "sacred monument" of Pike's Tomb. 

Whether or not this is true, the city's love affair with Freemasonry is hardly the stuff of legend. Masonry is carved into the very stone, and Albert Pike is venerated like a god.  Or at least he used to be, until the new Sons of Liberty knocked him into anarchy.  

Grandmaster Albert Pike is the anti-Evangelist of American Freemasonry,  having penned the de facto Bible of Freemasonry -- his 1871 masterwork"Morals and Dogma",  which is described by Freemasons as a "huge manual for the instruction of the Rite, as much a compilation as a composition... which remains to this day a monument of learning... containing the best Masonic thinking and writing in our literature." (MasonicDictionary.com)

He was, according to the Masonic Dictionary, "the master genius of Masonry in America, both as scholar and artist. No other mind of equal power ever toiled so long in the service of the Craft in the New World. No other has left a nobler fame in our annals."

For her part, the Catholic Church condemned old Albert's Freemasonry with the full weight of her authority for the past two hundred years, with more popes warning against the secret society than any other single organization.  

Pope Leo XIII in his encyclical, Humanum Genus, and elsewhere, the 1917 Code of Canon Law (Pius X—Benedict XV) provided, in Canon 2335, as follows:

All those who enroll their names in the sect of Freemasons or similar associations which plot against the Church or legitimate civil authorities, incur by this very fact the penalty of excommunication, absolution from which is reserved simply to the Holy See.

In bizarre poetic justice, old Albert Pike has been cut down by the very same mob that sent Robespierre to Madame Guillotine when the first Reign of Terror kicked things off in France a couple of hundred years ago. Pike, like Robespierre before him, had devoted his life to the Masonic principles of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity. But, then as now, the mob was singularly unimpressed, proving once again that, sooner or later, Christophobia always leads to anarchy. 

The question is, who's next? George Washington's iconic monument? The Statue of Liberty?  Lady Liberty perched high atop the dome of our nation's capitol? We'll have to wait and see as the Revolution continues to consume itself. 

In the meantime, Long Live Christ the King!

Now is the time for all Christians to come to the aid of their countries under globalist siege.

Here in America, we know that our country is far from perfect. She needs desperately to turn back to God. But we will not give up on her, especially now when she's burning and being betrayed from within.

Does Pope Francis support defunding America’s police departments?

Yesterday, the original version of this video was blocked in some countries.

Given the dramatic rise of racial tension in America, I pray this edited and much shorter edition will make it through.

New from Remnant TV...soros thumb 2

From the Editor's Desk, Michael Matt tackles the question of rising racial tension in America and its impact on the 2020 presidential election.

In the wake of the brutal murder of George Floyd, Michael takes a closer look at police brutality, race relations now and in the past, and suggests that our nation's war on God and Christian morality needs to be reconsidered immediately!

Pope Francis may see fit to ignore the words of Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, but President Donald J. Trump does NOT!

Just when the news of the day seems to be allowing little room for hope that anything could ever reverse the disastrous course our world is currently following, no less a person than the President of the United States, and leader of arguably the most powerful nation on earth, tweeted his sincere gratitude to one of the most outspoken critics of Pope Francis in the Church today.

And as further proof that there is no such thing as a coincidence, this presidential tweet appears on the very day when Archbishop Viganò put the world on notice that his resistance is not merely to the radical pontificate of Pope Francis, but also to the entire modernist revolution in the Catholic Church, starting with its most important event, the Second Vatican Council. 

Can this be anything other than a sign from God Himself that the Traditional Catholic counterrevolution has not been in vain, but indeed is now on the cusp of international vindication.

Don't lose hope, keep fighting, long live Christ the King!

 

Check out the video version of this letter, which has now been read and endorsed by the President of the United States:

Text of Petition from ChildrensHealthDefense.org:

Dear New York State Bar Association,

Please reconsider the Health Law Task Force Report on COVID-19 that recklessly recommends that all New York State residents must receive mandatory vaccination “when the efficacy of a COVID-19 vaccine has been confirmed.” This recommendation would violate citizens’ fundamental rights to bodily integrity, free exercise of religion, parental rights, informed consent, the right to refuse unwanted medical treatment and other constitutional rights. Such a mandate would sow distrust and meet overwhelming resistance.

Mosher thumbSteve Mosher speaks at the Catholic Identity Conference

The president of the Population Research Institute, Steven Mosher, discusses everything Catholics need to know about Communist China, the Church in China, the persecution of the Church and the Vatican's secret agreement with Beijing.

In light of increasing tensions between the U.S. and China, Americans have many questions. What will the secret Vatican agreement mean for the underground Church in China? Who will appoint Catholic bishops in China--the Communist government or the Vatican? How will this impact Washington's relations with Beijing? What happens next?

New from RTV...echert thumbnail

With gratitude to the Bishops of Minnesota, Father John Echert--The Parking Lot Priest--celebrated the first major public Mass inside of his church since the pandemic lockdown was initiated.

We're presenting this short video by way of encouragement to Catholics nationwide not to give up but to continue to pressure the bishops all across the country to do the right thing and comply with President Trump's adamant call for the churches to open up right now.

Not to be daunted by the Covid pandemic, Notre-Dame de Chrétienté has organized an international virtual pilgrimage with traditional Catholics from all over the world.

And while we are all deeply saddened by not being able to march to the Cathedral of Notre Dame de Chartres this Pentecost Monday, as we've done for the past 29 years, I am thrilled to announce that the closing Mass of the Chartres Pilgrimage was celebrated today in the Basilica of Saint Peter in Rome on the altar of Saint Petronilla.

  • THE CATHOLIC RESTORATION: Chartres Pilgrimage 2018

    Tired of apologizing for being Catholic? Sick of every other religion in the world being praised while yours is condemned? Weary of hearing about the rights of man, with no thought given to the rights of God and His Church? Done with CINOs (Catholics In Name Only)? Here's the answer. On Pentecost weekend in France, nearly 20,000 Catholics from all over the world--of every race and color, men and women, old and young--came together to worship God, to honor Our Lady and to send a message to the world: the anti-Catholic revolution has failed! We're back, we're here to stay and we're not apologizing for being proud Catholic soldiers of Jesus Christ. The Catholic counterrevolution is in full swing, and it's a youth movement. All for the greater honor and glory of Almighty God. Viva Cristo Rey! Vive le Christ Roi! Long live Christ the King!

  • Pope Francis and the SSPX Regularization
    New From Remnant TV (RTV)...

    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. Plus, a cameo appearance from Archbishop Lefebvre himself.

    Traditional Catholics: The New Judaizers?

    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?
