I expect to die in bed, my successor will die in prison and his successor will die a martyr in the public square. His successor will pick up the shards of a ruined society and slowly help rebuild civilization, as the Church has done so often in human history. ― Cardinal Francis George
SOCIALIST REVOLUTIONARIES GRABBED control of Mexico.
Religious persecution descended upon the country’s Catholics who resisted the atheistic ideology pushed in legislation concocted by political authorities scheming to outlaw the Church and Her traditions.
The two rows of colonnades which frame St. Peter’s Square in the Vatican were designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini to resemble arms outstretched in welcome. (https://vatican.com/St-Peters-Square-Colonnades/) The Catholic Church is universal and open to all who seek salvation. At the base of the Statue of Liberty in New York City is a secular version of this sentiment: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore.” (https://www.nps.gov/stli/learn/historyculture/colossus.htm) For the Church, however, there are no “masses,” no “teeming” throngs of faceless proletariat. There are individual sinners, and the Church is Christ seeking out the lost sheep, calling everyone home by name. Everyone may knock on the doors of the Church and seek baptism, forgiveness, and the bread of everlasting life.
This year’s Catholic Identity Conference sold out months ago. With over 700 attendees and 15 speakers, this will be the largest Traditional Catholic conference of 2021.
I want to invite you to the CIC Livestream, which will include interviews, personalized greetings and updates for our Livestream viewers ONLY. Please keep in mind this is not an online Zoom conference. This is an actual conference, with speakers flying in from around the world and technicians that will produce a high-quality online experience for those who are not in attendance.
In addition to real time viewing of all talks, Livestream viewers will also be able to interact with the conference by sending email questions and comments to me directly, as I will be serving as emcee throughout the entire weekend.
Daily conference Masses will be part of the package.
One of Remnant TV’s recent videos featured Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. discussing his forthcoming book, The Real Anthony Fauci: Bill Gates, Big Pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health. The entire discussion warrants attention but one of his main points focused on a dilemma that is especially important to faithful Catholics: what do you do when an apparent authority demands that you act in a way that conflicts with your conscience and common sense?
The debate over the recently-announced vaccine mandate is awash in illogic.
For example: vaccines are like seatbelts, we’re told. But how many of us have to wear three, four, even five seatbelts at a time? How many of us have to buckle in to additional seatbelts the longer we drive?
Faithful Catholics have penned mountains of books and articles describing the infiltration of the Catholic Church leading up to Vatican II and the seemingly unlimited anti-Catholic fruits that have followed. As the picture of treachery and incompetence becomes clearer, more Catholics have (properly) started to evaluate Vatican II in light of tradition instead of evaluating the Church’s pre-Vatican II history entirely in light of the Council. Unfortunately, the picture is still as complex as it is unpleasant. For better or worse, though, we can get a surprisingly accurate glimpse of the crisis with a simple examination of the evolving use of the phrase “men of good will.”
Editor's Note: Twenty years ago, I was at Ground Zero in New York. I wrote the following now abridged version of my experience in the immediate aftermath of that disaster, the Afghanistan insanity at the time, and what we as a nation might have learned through that horrific ordeal. Now, twenty years later, I fear we have learned nothing at all. God help us, I wish it were otherwise. MJM
NEW YORK (November 12, 2001)—I write these words from the twelfth floor of the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City. Emergency vehicle sirens wail in the streets of Manhattan below my window. It seems that the city is crying again.
Yet another American Airliner—has crashed into Queens. Over 240 passengers and crew are dead; nobody knows how many are dead on the ground where Flight 587 apparently exploded and plummeted into a residential neighborhood.

Letter from the Faithful Attached to the Traditional Latin Mass, to Catholics of the Whole World
“What man is there among you, of whom if his son shall ask bread, will he reach him a stone?” (Mt 7:9)
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
We have been deeply saddened to learn of Pope Francis’ decision to revoke the main provisions of the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum promulgated by Pope Benedict XVI on July 7, 2007. After decades of division and quarrels, Summorum Pontificum was a source of peace and reconciliation for all Catholics.
WE WILL NOT DEPRIVE OUR CHILDREN: International Group of Catholic Lay Leaders Call for Revocation of Traditionis CustodesWritten by Press Release
As the betrayal in Afghanistan unfolded over the past few gut-wrenching weeks, people from all political persuasions began to demand answers. “Someone has to take responsibility for abandoning Americans to be raped, tortured, enslaved, and murdered by the Taliban,” the country cried out. “The people running the State Department, Pentagon, White House (whoever that mystery person happens to be), and Democrat-media-complex must be held to account.”
Over the last eighteen months, Australia has become a battleground for the opposing forces of freedom and totalitarianism. Some states have endured multiple, ongoing lockdowns and experimental vaccines have been mandated in many industries across the nation. At the Federal level, both the government and opposition are attempting to introduce vaccine passports while our Bishops have openly encouraged Catholics to accept the abortion-tainted vaccines. Add to this a new law that enables police to take control of private social media accounts and electoral changes that could see the end of minor parties, and it becomes obvious that Australia is in quite a mess.
