In a press release dated March 3, the Vatican announced that it has postponed Pope Francis's Global Compact on Education for a "new humanism" [read, contraception] Pact from its original mid-May date to October 11-18, 2020.
The meeting was to feature "great men of the earth", i.e., Bono and Jeff Sachs, who were to help Francis build a global village that would establish a new humanism based on the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.
According to population control guru, Jeff Sachs, Francis' global education initiative was going to be financed by the likes of Bill Gates, the IMF, a bunch of rock stars and God knows what other lunatical globalist wackos.
But then there was Corona.
I guess maybe God needs a break from the sanctimonious papal bloviating, too.
The meeting has been postponed until October, it's true. But at the moment, NASA's watching a massive asteroid that's supposed to be heading our way next month. So, we'll have to wait and see how aggressive Francis wants to be with this Godless little global village of his.
A Couple of the Vatican's Great Men of the Earth

FROM THE EDITOR'S DESK, Michael Matt asks some tough questions:
- Is Pope Francis promoting contraception in support of the United Nations' population control agenda?
- If not, how does Team Francis justify their public alliance with pro-abort globalists who believe they need to reduce population in order to save the planet?
So, here we go again. Germany’s highest court has overturned a ban on medically assisted suicide. This means that Germans wanting to end their own lives, or help someone else end theirs, will no longer have to leave the country to get the job done.
Isn't that great!
According to a New York Times report, Hermann Gröhe, a former health minister who helped create the original ban on assisted suide, told reporters he believes the decision "would pave the way toward the normalization of suicide as a treatment option.”
Beatrix von Storch, a member of the far-right Alternative for Germany party, said the decision would have wide-ranging consequences and would create “a cult of death.”
Ya think? So where certain evil political parties in Germany just 70 years ago got comfortable with the idea of putting Germans to death on a mass scale, a new evil political party is now going to let German put themselves to death on a mass scale. And this they call "progress".
Welcome to the New World Order.
Goodbye, boys. I'm sorry, but you were too good for our brave new world.
A fairly devastating article appeared in The Washington Times yesterday, February 23, 2020. Entitled Boy Scouts of America's bankrupt moral standards embrace leftist ideals and written by Robert Knight, it chronicles the fall of the Boy Scouts of America. (Check that. Not the "fall" but the "targeting for elimination" of the Boy Scouts of America.)
I’ve never been a Boy Scout, nor are either of my young sons. But I can certainly sympathize with Mr. Knight when he confesses that both anger and sadness motivated him to write his courageous article—an article which, by the way, in the days to come could well win the man a one-way ticket to the gulag or the concentration camp or the respect camp or whatever they’ll call the detention camps for political prisoners in the future.
ROME, February 19, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — In a new in-depth analysis of the apostolic exhortation Querida Amazonia, Bishop Athanasius Schneider has praised what he views as Pope Francis’ decision not to weaken priestly celibacy or open the door to a female “diaconate.” But he has also criticized the “lamentable doctrinal ambiguities and errors” that he says the document contains.
The auxiliary bishop of St. Mary in Astana, Kazakhstan, maintains that Querida Amazonia’s stance on priestly celibacy and female “deacons” represents “a glimmer of hope amid the ongoing confusion,” despite the document’s “theological limitations and errors.” Read the rest HERE
Remnant Comment: We very much agree with His Excellency's analysis. Of course, Team Francis still wants feathers and tom-toms at Mass, but that's only to be expected from these men; it's really not the story here.
The takeaway from Francis’ Exhortation Querida Amazonia ("Beloved Amazon") is that it fell well short of the mark when it came to the promised ordination of women and married priests in the new and improved Church of Accompaniment.
That's it. The threatened act of brazen revolution fizzled into a flurry of feathers.
Is this only a temporary setback for the Francis agenda? No doubt. They'll try again. But let’s not underestimate the extent to which Francis' true agenda at the Amazon Synod was exposed. In the final analysis, he was forced to abandon what was ostensibly the main point and purpose of the Amazon Synod--to bring the Eucharist to the peoples of the Rain Forest on the backs of women deacons and married priests.
Couple this with the Pachamamas floating down the Tiber, and the Amazon Synod will go down in history as a ridiculous stunt that fell flat on its face and left the Francis pontificate exposed to worldwide ridicule from both friend and foe of Papa Bergoglio.
Simply put, the totally "woke" Amazon Synod ended in a papal dumpster fire.
In case you missed it, here's The Remnant’s take on Querida Amazonia (start at minute 13:40):

With America apparently ready for a homosexual president and a Frist Gentleman in the White House, Michael Matt discusses the downward moral spiral of Western Civilization since the close of the Second Vatican Council.
Of all the conservative commentators, only Rush Limbaugh—a guy with stage 4 lung cancer—is willing to discuss even the possibility that Mayor Pete’s marital status might present a political obstacle. If Limbaugh is homophobic now, says Mr. Matt, well then Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were raging homophobes just a few years ago.
THE REVOLUTION OF Pope Francis is far more vulnerable than he wants the world to think it is. By his own admission, Francis set out to fundamentally change the Church founded by Christ Himself, whose doctrine is based on Holy Writ and whose praxis is rooted in 2000 years of Catholic Tradition.
Even despite Vatican II, such papal hubris is unprecedented in the history of the Church and is bound to encounter significant opposition.
Today, February 12, 2020, we have been given welcome proof of the extent to which this pontificate has jumped the shark.
The Catholic Herald is reporting that the notorious heretic Reinhard Cardinal Marx is stepping aside as chairman of the German Bishops’ Conference:
The Archbishop of Munich and Freising said in a statement that it was time for the “younger generation” to take charge when the bishops meet for their spring General Assembly early next month.
Cardinal Marx pointed out that if he were to serve a second term, he would be 72 by the time it finished, almost at retirement age.
“I was very happy to hold the office of chairman of the German Bishops’ Conference, but ‘everything has its time’,” the cardinal said.
Marx has been chairman of the German Bishops’ Conference since March 2014, and has served as Archbishop of Munich and Freising since 2008.
Good riddance, Excellency. We trust that Our Lady and the Acies Ordinata played a part in your decision to do the right thing:

From the Editor’s Desk, Michael Matt covers the latest Vatican attack on President Donald Trump.
Team Francis kicked off this election year with a Vatican conference that targeted Trump by name and the United States in general as THE number one impasse to the construction of the globalists’ new world order.
