Besties Huddle: Pope and Fr. Spadaro Besties Huddle: Pope and Fr. Spadaro

Uh-oh. Sounds like Fr. Spadaro’s been @triggered…

February 20, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Papal confidante Father Antonio Spadaro retweeted a call for EWTN to be severely censured “until they get rid of Raymond Arroyo.”

The call for an “interdict” to be imposed on the Catholic media empire started by Mother Angelica came from Anthony Annett, Assistant to the Director at the International Monetary Fund’s Communications Department.

An interdict is essentially one step short of excommunication. It bans a person or people from accessing most Church Sacraments.

Annett called for an interdict to be imposed on EWTN because of a February 15 World Over segment.

“Make no mistake,” tweeted Annett, the show’s discussion of a recent Spadaro speech and ultra-liberal Cardinal Blase Cupich “represent ‘total war’ on the papacy of Pope Francis.”

…Arroyo was a close friend of Mother Angelica. He is the author of numerous books. As confusion has mounted during Pope Francis’ reign, his signature show, The World Over, has analyzed troubling developments in the Church. Arroyo often does this with the help of Father Gerald Murray and Robert Royal (the “papal posse”).

Spadaro, a Jesuit who is often called the pope’s “mouthpiece,” frequently criticizes critics of Amoris Laetitia’s ambiguity or the Francis pontificate. He is the editor-in-chief of La Civiltà Cattolica. Read the full report HERE

REMNANT COMMENT:  Good for Raymond Arroyo! What Father Spadaro--the "Pope's Mouthpiece"--doesn't realize is that the shark has been jumped. The jig is up. The cat's out of the Vatican’s bag. The world is onto them. Get rid of Raymond Arroyo and he'll become an even more outspoken critic of the Vatican dog and pony show. Consign him to the Gulag and a dozen others will step up and take his place. Nobody is falling for it anymore, Father Tony....nobody! 

Pope Francis has awakened the sleeping giant. All glory and honor to God.

(Note to Raymond Arroyo: If worse comes to worst and you find yourself living under a bridge somewhere, eating out of dumpster and hiding from Vatican hitmen--well, you're always welcome at our fire.)
