New from The Remnant Underground...
Down in the catacombs, Michael Matt examines the fundamental cause of horrific realities such as school shootings in America. (SPOILER ALERT: It's not the guns). Michael also looks at the Catholic Church's unconditional surrender in the Culture war, and asks the question: What's the connection between moral chaos in society and the "Church of Accompaniment" of Vatican II. Plus, when it comes to Christophobic Hollywood, how did we get from Cardinal Spellman, Archbishop John Gregory Murray and Pope Pius XI-- to Deacon Steve Greydanus?
It seems on an average we hear about a mass shooting or attempted shooting every couple of months—and those are just the significant attempts, the ones reported by the news media. There are other, countless accounts of individuals bringing weapons to school or to the workplace, showing them off, and threatening classmates and co-workers: incidents which don’t make the national news and elicit little surprise from a calloused citizenry who now seem to react to such events as if they are normal, part of everyday life, to be expected in our society.

Il Giornale: What still separates the Saint Pius X community from the Catholic Church?
Don Fausto Buzzi: It is necessary to point out that the Society of Saint Pius X is in no way separate from the Catholic Church. We are united to the Catholic Church and we never separated from Her, despite divergences with the authorities of the Church. We are not responsible for these divergences. Archbishop Lefebvre always used to say that he was condemned because of those very things for which the popes (particularly Pope Pius XII) used to praise him. Rome was the one who changed and, with Vatican II, she distanced herself from the centuries-old Tradition of the Church.
