The Remnant - The World's Oldest Traditional Catholic Newspaper
The Remnant was founded in 1967 and strives to adhere to Catholic teaching in every aspect of its journalism.
The Remnant has been fighting against the revolution in the Church for over fifty years, just as it has been fighting against the errors that infect the modern state-- Liberalism, Socialism, Communism, the New World Order, a degenerate youth culture, the abortion epidemic, euthanasia, sex education, etc.
The Remnant deplores, denounces and condemns without reservation any and all forms of racism, violence and hatred against anyone for any reason—be it race, gender, ethnicity, religion, skin color, sexual orientation or any other factor seen or unforeseen. We condemn all hatred—past, present and future—on religious, moral and theological grounds. Jesus Christ told His followers to love everyone, to see Christ in everyone, even those with whom they disagree—and this revolutionary idea is at the heart of everything we as Christians try to do here at The Remnant. Hate has no place here. It’s what the old priests used to call a “mortal sin”—a grievous offense against God.
Age of the Laity
It is also important to note that The Remnant is not affiliated with any particular traditionalist order of priests. We support all good priests, especially those laboring to restore the traditional Latin Mass. We are Roman Catholic and that is all. The Remnant's position is simply Catholic, and its purpose is simply to defend the traditions of the Holy Roman Catholic Church.
The Restoration of the Catholic Church ultimately must come from the hierarchy, but we believe this is the “age of laity” spoken of by Archbishop Fulton Sheen when he addressed the Supreme Convention of the Knights of Columbus back in 1972:
Who is going to save our Church? Not our bishops, not our priests and religious. It is up to you, the people. You have the minds, the eyes, and the ears to save the Church. Your mission is to see that your priests act like priests, your bishops act like bishops, and your religious act like religious.
And so it is that lay efforts like The Remnant carry on, always looking to Rome for the real Restoration to finally begin. Until that happens, laymen must do all in their power to keep their own Faith and to do whatever they can to help others to do the same in this spiritual Dark Age.
Rather than merely cursing that Darkness, The Remnant is attempting to keep the candle of the Catholic Faith lit, and to survive this nightmare until the light of the new dawn of the Restoration of the Catholic Church can be seen on the horizon.
