They say that rumors are nothing more than gossip with a purpose. Well, when it comes to the winged rumors about Francis cracking down on the Latin Mass again – perhaps as soon as Easter Monday – let’s hope that gossip is all it turns out to be.
Michael Matt to Bishop Schneider: “Should priests comply with the order to suppress the Latin Mass?” FeaturedBy: Michael J. Matt | Editor
As Michael Matt discussed in his recent Remnant Underground, the growing globalist tyranny has convinced countless people that we are in the midst of a decisive spiritual battle and must turn to God. Tragically, most of these souls may never find the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, to which we all must belong, precisely because the tyrannical enemies of God had to undermine the Church to carry out their globalist designs. The small remnant of Catholics who still have the Faith must therefore strive to be the light of the world that attracts those of good will.

In this episode of The Remnant Underground, Michael looks at those who took the most difficult stand against tyranny and have now been vindicated. From famous athletes such as Novak Djokovic to the forgotten frontline nurses and cops, these are the heroes of lockdown who gave up everything for freedom.
Irony of all ironies, even Bill Gates has finally conceded that they had a point.
Plus, with Pfizer embroiled in a crisis of public trust, Michael looks back at their love affair with Pope Francis—the guy who somehow became their lead singer and moral spokesman.
LUMEN AD REVELATIONEM
Tu es qui restitues hæreditatem meam mihi.
It is you who will restore my inheritance to me. - Ps 15: 5
My Eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of every people. With these words, the aged Simeon praises the Lord for having granted him the privilege of being able to witness the fulfillment of the Prophecies, being able to hold in his arms the Infant Messiah, brought to the Temple to be offered to the Lord according to the prescriptions of the Old Law. That short but profound canticle is repeated every night at Compline, because the prayer that the Church recites at the end of each day prepares us for the end of our earthly exile with our faces turned towards Our Lord.
Today Governor Tim Walz signed one of the bloodiest abortion laws in the world – a law which rivals those of China and North Korea in sheer brutality. The new law will make it a "fundamental right" to have access to abortion, thus solidifying Minnesota's status as a “safe haven” for the barbaric procedure right up to the moment of delivery. “Safe”, that is, for everyone other than the babies in question.
In his recent article in America — “Cardinal McElroy on ‘radical inclusion’ for L.G.B.T. people, women and others in the Catholic Church” — Cardinal Robert McElroy framed the challenges facing the Church today in terms of getting “the people of God” to take new paths in the coming decades:
“What paths is the church being called to take in the coming decades? While the synodal process already underway has just begun to reveal some of these paths, the dialogues that have taken place identify a series of challenges that the people of God must face if we are to reflect the identity of a church that is rooted in the call of Christ, the apostolic tradition and the Second Vatican Council. Many of these challenges arise from the reality that a church that is calling all women and men to find a home in the Catholic community contains structures and cultures of exclusion that alienate all too many from the church or make their journey in the Catholic faith tremendously burdensome.”

If it’s true that it’s “the Mass that matters,” then obviously the more Traditional Latin Masses in the world today the better for everyone – Catholic or not.
The Bishop of Duluth, Minnesota, has set an important precedent for every bishop in the world. He’s not a traditionalist but, the wake of Traditionis Custodes, he’s gone to bat for his traditional Catholic community.
In this Special Edition of the Remnant Underground, Michael Matt speaks to those who are not necessarily traditional Catholics or who are new to the Latin Mass. To quote Michael: “I hope the viewer will understand what we’re trying to do here. This is not about the SSPX, the FSSP, or my personal opinion of the liturgical revolution. It’s a bit outside of that box, which is why I encourage you to share it with your family, friends, diocesan priests and bishops.”
I want to thank you for asking consultation from both priests and seminarians after the latest Motu Proprio from Pope Francis. I found it disturbing, cruel, and unnecessary. Let me explain.
A response to Reid, Cavadini, Healy, and Weinandy
And arms shall stand on his part,
and they shall defile the sanctuary of strength,
and they shall take away the continual sacrifice:
and they shall place there the abomination unto desolation. -Dan 11: 31
I have followed with interest the ongoing debate about Traditionis Custodes and Father Reid’ comment (here) in which he refutes Cavadini, Healy, and Weinandy, without however reaching a solution to the problems identified. With this contribution, I would like to indicate a possible way out of the present crisis.
“A certain number of important theological questions about which no agreement could be reached were left open by choosing formulations that could be interpreted differently by particular groups and theological tendencies at the Council.” (Karl Rahner and Herbert Vorgrimler, as quoted in Fr. Matthias Gaudron’s The Catechism of the Crisis in the Church)

Why are so many powerful people mocking WEF 2023? What is going on? For the first time, the Vatican didn’t even bother sending an official representative to Davos, and 6 out of 7 G7 leaders were conspicuous by their absence.
