Last week President Trump received a scapular and a lesson on Fatima from Edward Baza Calvo, governor of Guam since 2011.

"About 165,000 people have taken a big sigh of relief since ten months ago the leader of North Korea was making pronouncements of the nuclear annihilation of our island," says Gov. Calvo in the short clip below from PacificDailyNews.com. "And now we have, ten months later, a document paving the way--signed by both [Trump and Kim Jong-un]--to peace and denuclearization," 

A year ago, when this crisis was unfolding, the traveling Lady of Fatima had just come from Korea to Guam, and fifteen minutes after Trump signed the agreement with Kim Jong-un, the statue arrived at the house of Governor Calvo. Being Catholic, he said, "I don't believe in coincidences." 

In gratitiude to both Our Lady of Fatima and the U.S. President, Gov. Calvo handed Trump a scapular and told him that Catholics, such as Melania, would understand its significance.

COMMENT: Well, now we know he knows the rest of the story. What will happen next?  God only knows.  But as most of the human element of the Catholic Church have now betrayed their convenant with Almighty God, it remains to be seen who God will choose as recepient of His Grace to continue His work in the world.  I have a feeling we might all be surprised at who from the highways will answer the call and come to the Lord's feast. 

Please pray for the conversion of President Donald Trump. And let's also pray for the First Lady, that God will open her heart to the truth of the Church into which she was baptized. 

May Our Lady of Fatima watch over them both, guide them and eventually open their hearts to the Way, the Truth and the Light.  Unlikely? Perhaps, but with God's grace anything is possible.

 

 

Say what you like about the Russian president and those dastardly "ulterior KGB motives" of his (about which certain bloggers are constantly warning us), at least Vladimir Putin is willing to address the global chaos caused by the anti-family, anti-life, anti-God maniacs who've been running the “free world” for the last fifty years:

RussianFaith.com reports that Putin says Russia must support the family because the country's future depends upon it. Parents with many children, he said at the awards ceremony for the Order of Parental Glory, "Have chosen for themselves a happy, grateful, but very difficult and responsible path that is full of inconvenience and suffering, demanding colossal devotion."

"To give the child the values ​​of goodness, justice, and diligence, words alone are not enough. . . . It is necessary for parents to prove their fidelity day by day with their personal examples — only in this way it is possible to raise a truly complete person, a worthy citizen of Russia." 

Putin and familiesEvery year Putin hands out medals to large families.

If this is just the Machiavellian machinations of the closet KGB, well, forgive me, but perhaps the world needs more Machiavellian machinations of the closet KGB. At least it's not the Luciferian machinations of Planned Parenthood, the UN and George Soros.

If that's our choice, I think I'd take my chances with this guy, who seems like he may actually have a soul.

 

The e-vites were blasted all over the Inter-verse for Rome's second March of the Sexual Fetishes Gay Pride Parade. "GayPride4U" called it "political pride in the heart of Catholicism", but is Rome Catholic anymore? Even Italy's new families minister is causing a storm by saying that homosexual families do not legally exist, but can the "heart of Catholicism" aka the Vatican get its stuff together enough to lift the daintiest finger in protest of a sin that cries for Heaven's vengeance? Of course not; at least not while bae is gay.  According to GloriaTV, there was nothing but the customary silence

Last Saturday, a Gay Pride March took place in Rome while the local well-nourished prelates, including Pope Francis, went into silence and hiding. The Church’s honour was saved by the Committee San Filippo Neri, a group of young, courageous Catholics, which organized a procession of reparation. The group contacted the Pope’s vicar for Rome, Angelo De Donatis who this month will become a cardinal. Unsurprisingly De Donatis refused to answer.

Rome Pride 2Some lovely reps of Rome's Gay Pride March...

I just don't get it. Why would Pope Francis go silent in the face of Rome's Gay Pride March? Maybe the "god of surprises" was feeling a bit pretty, witty, and gay last week...

 

The Globalist agenda is suffering massive losses in Europe, where the case for national sovereignty grows stronger with nearly every major election. 

Consider these facts: In September 2017, the Alternative for Germany won 12.6 percent of the vote and entered the Bundestag with 94 seats, upsetting Germany’s post-war political order. In October, anti-immigrant businessman-turned-politician, Andrej Babis, led his ANO Party to victory and became the Czech Republic’s prime minister. Also in October, the Freedom Party of Austria won 26 percent of the popular vote, up from 20.5 percent in the previous election, and joined the governing coalition.

In January 2018, Czech President Milos Zeman’s forceful anti-immigrant stance contributed to his narrow victory over a liberal internationalist challenger. In March, the anti-establishment 5 Star Movement scored significant gains and became Italy’s largest party, while the virulently anti-immigrant League jumped from 4 percent to 18 percent, surpassing Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia to become the dominant force on the right. Support for Italy's Democratic Party fell so substantially that its leader, former Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, felt compelled to resign. Even in Scandinavia, long a bulwark of social democracy, the once-dominant center-left parties are in decline, and nationalist parties with nativist tendencies are growing.

On April 8, 2018, Hungary's parliamentary vote resulted in victory for the Right, preserving its two-thirds majority, with Viktor Orbán remaining Prime Minister. Orbán and Fidesz campaigned primarily on the issues of immigration and foreign meddling, and the election was seen as a victory for right-wing populism in Europe. Hungary is the EU’s populist powerhouse, with a 65% vote share for anti-establishment parties.

The Socialists, France’s ruling party, received just 7 percent of the vote in last year’s presidential election. By receiving more than a third of the presidential vote, Marine Le Pen ensured that nobody can call her populist, nationalist party a 'fringe' political movement. In the Netherlands, the Labour Party’s share of the vote fell from 24.8 percent in the 2012 general election to just 5.7 percent in 2017, reducing its parliamentary representation from 38 seats to 9.

all the populist leadersRight wing populist leaders have established themselves as a legitimate threat to the NWO

And that isn't an exhaustive list. Populism and nationalism are growing by leaps and bounds, while the stodgy, mainstream center-Left with its EU and its World-Without-Borders crap ceases to attract and, in fact, has already collapsed. It is evident that populism draws strength from public opposition to mass immigration, cultural liberalization, and the perceived surrender of national sovereignty to distant and unresponsive international bodies. Even where populist parties lose at the polls, their ideas are triumphing anyway. This is the momentum that is propelling Europe into the furture. 

Trisulti

In an attempt to meet demand and shape the next generation of populist leaders, right-wing academies in Europe are springing up in waves. The latest of these is the 800-year-old monastery of Trisulti, about a two-hour drive southeast of Rome. It is being converted into an academy by Benjamin Harnwell, conservative Catholic ideologue from Leicestershire, who told The Times that he was determined to “defend the Judeo-Christian roots of society”.

Boasting connections at senior levels in the Vatican, Mr. Harnwell is also backed by Steve Bannon, former White House strategist who has recently taken up the causes of European nationalism and populism.

A little more backlash like this and the NWO agenda in Europe will be heading to the dustbin of history.  Is this the end of the struggle? Hardly! But it should provide plenty of impetus for the worldwide traditional Catholic movement to get over itself, to stop with the circular firing squad, and to work for the establishment of a serious alliance that, with faith and God’s help, could sound the death knell to the diabolical New World Order.

The NWO is the result of a spiritual war between Christ and Satan, between the world and His Church. Its success depends on the eradication of the Mystical Body of Christ on earth—His One, Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. The defeat of the NWO cannot be realized without a turning back to Christ.

Many powerful leaders in Europe are sick to death of the NWO, even on a purely human level. This is a most welcome developement! We must support their efforts and help them reorganize the most vital spiritual component that will ultimately lead to victory for us all.

In order to defeat the New World Order, the Social Kingship of Our Lord Jesus Christ must be loudly and proudly proclaimed to the four corners of the earth once again. Catholic restoration and liturgical overhaul in light of sacred Tradition is central to the establishment of the counterrevolution if indeed there is going to be one.

Our movement is not about mere liturgical preferences. It never was and never should be. It is about the Kingship of Christ, and now, as this perfect storm begins to form in Europe and even here in the States, traditional Catholics worldwide should recognize the need to step up their game and enter the fray in earnest. The moment to strike, obviously, is at hand. Goliath is almost in range.

Viva Cristo Rey!

 

According to a 33-year-long study conducted by the National Home Education Research Institute in Oregon, the top three reasons that parents choose homeschooling are a desire to provide religious instruction or different values than those offered in public schools; dissatisfaction with the academic curriculum, and worries about the school environment.

As reported by The Washington Times, the recent school shooting at Parkland, Fla., was the last straw for scores of parents. The paper noted that “the phones started ringing at the Texas Home School Coalition, and they haven’t stopped yet.”

The Times added:The Lubbock-based organization has been swamped with inquiries for months from parents seeking safer options for their kids in the aftermath of this year’s deadly school massacres, first in Parkland and then in Santa Fe, Texas.

“When the Parkland shooting happened, our phone calls and emails exploded,” said coalition president Tim Lambert. “In the last couple of months, our numbers have doubled. We’re dealing with probably between 1,200 and 1,400 calls and emails per month, and prior to that it was 600 to 700.”

While the debate rages anew over familiar topics following such tragedies — tougher, more restrictive gun control laws and bolstering security at public schools — the revolution in homeschooling has been taking place quietly, behind the scenes and off the radar screens of most political organizations.

But again, it’s not just the shootings, which admittedly have increased in the past couple of years. Christopher Chin, head of Homeschool Louisiana, told The Times that parents are fed up with “the violence, the bullying, the unsafe environments.”

The Left is driving more kids OUT of public schools

There is also the Left-wing social engineering. The craziness over transgender students and bathrooms/locker rooms, allowing students to “take a knee” during the playing of the National Anthem, the Left-wing curriculum, and refusing to allow students to wear shirts that praise POTUS Trump or feature the American flag are also driving parents into homeschooling.

 

REMNANT COMMENT: We here at The Remnant are always eager to promote the home-schooling movement, and this report helps illustrate why.

At the moment and personally speaking, my own family’s home-school is going great guns. We have a daughter still in high school and three in grade school. Our family couldn't be happier with our decision to homeschool---yes, all the way through high school.

And as for our older home-schooled children: My third-eldest child is preparing to head off to college in the fall. Her older sister just finished a semester studying in Austria and will graduate with a double major and a minor degree next spring.

My son will be a junior this fall, working on a Mass Communications degree at Franciscan University. Here's an example of his work: 

Perhaps this video from a couple of years ago will be useful to those considering home-schooling this fall:

Friends, please give serious thought and prayer to home-schooling your children. I realize it’s a challenge, but few challenges have greater payoffs in this world or the next. There is no better way to keep the Catholic family together and committed to the Catholic restoration than the Catholic home school.

 

This year's Chartres Pilgrimage boosted a hefty dose of star power:

CatholicHerald.com: “Chartres sonne, Chartres t’appelle! Gloire, honneur au Christ-Roi!” Under a radiant sky a stream of singing pilgrims stretches across the French countryside. It is Pentecost weekend and roughly 12,000 people are walking from Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris to Chartres, the cathedral town about 50 miles south of the capital.

The pilgrimage, which has taken place for the past 36 years, is organised by the traditionalist group Notre-Dame de Chrétienté (Our Lady of Christendom). This year the pilgrims are joined by Vatican liturgy chief Cardinal Robert Sarah.

But there is another star in the crowd: Marion Maréchal, niece of Front National leader Marine Le Pen. She is tackling the pilgrimage with a group of friends. At first, she keeps a low profile: she is just another pilgrim among pilgrims. But her anonymity does not last long. Other participants soon ask if they can be photographed with her. “Thank you for being here,” says one pilgrim after another.

Maréchal officially retired from politics last year after her aunt was heavily defeated by Emmanuel Macron in the presidential election. But this precocious figure, who became an MP in 2012 at the age of 22, already seems to be planning her return to front-line politics. Last autumn she helped to found L’Incorrect, a conservative magazine run by some of her followers and serving as a vehicle for her ideas. And last month she launched a private school in Lyon, the Institut de Sciences Sociales, Economiques et Politiques (Issep). Raheem Kassam, the former editor-in-chief of Breitbart London and chief adviser to Ukip leader Nigel Farage, is part of the teaching team.

...Her presence on the Chartres pilgrimage was significant. Maréchal is clearly counting on the Catholic Right to help her in her comeback.

REMNANT COMMENT: God's inscrutable ways are not ours, and exactly how and why He sometimes chooses even broken vessels to accomplish His Will is one of the great mysteries of history. But He does.

I don't know where this young lady will end up, but only the fool is not constantly scanning the horizon in France for any sign of the Divine Intervention that is absolutely inevitable where the Eldest Daughter of the Church is concerned. 

France is far from a lost cause. And somehow I think it's more than significant that this young lady keeps showing up at the premier traditional Catholic restoration event in the world today.

Remember, Marion Maréchal-Le Pen is no stranger to the Traditional Latin Mass. She attended the Dominican Sisters of the Holy Spirit’s Institution Saint-Pie X in Paris, where she received her First Holy Communion and Confirmation in the old Rite and regularly attended the TLM.

Hope springs eternal, friends. Keep it alive, and be wary of those constantly trying to tear down and dismiss these little signs of God's grace at work, even in the prevailing darkness of modern-day France. Only the Devil has no hope.

 

Chartres dark to lightPhotos: Walter Matt

“This has been standing here for centuries. The premier work of man perhaps in the whole Western world, and it’s without a signature: Chartres. A celebration to God’s glory and to the dignity of man. All that’s left, most artists seem to feel these days, is man. Naked, poor, forked radish. There aren’t any celebrations. Ours, the scientists keep telling us, is a universe which is disposable. You know, it might be just this one anonymous glory of all things, this rich stone forest, this epic chant, this gaiety, this grand, choiring shout of affirmation, which we choose when all our cities are dust, to stand intact, to mark where we have been, to testify to what we had it in us to accomplish.” - Orson Welles

For more than a thousand years Our Lady’s cathedral at Chartres has stood in grand gothic testimony to the faith of our fathers and the Christian cult of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Before Chartres, Christian churches were typically dedicated to the saints whose relics they were built to house. Chartres is different, for it is one of the first dedicated solely to the Mother of God. She so stirred the medieval soul that nearly all cathedrals that came after Chartres were dedicated to Our Lady—Notre Dame—the Virgin Mother of God.

After six years of legal battles, the Supreme Court handed victory to the baker who made news for refusing to craft the centerpiece of a same-sex couple's wedding. Dudes must have been real bridezillas. Although it's too late to apologize, especially for the multiple death threats and substantial loss of income, at least, in the end, justice came for Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood. The landmark 7-2 decision in his favor all but guarantees that business owners will have a larger legal shield moving forward.

NCRegister sums up the original story and Jack's long legal struggle: 

The Masterpiece Cakeshop case dates back to July 2012, when owner Jack Phillips was asked by two men to bake a cake for their same-sex wedding ceremony.

He explained to the couple that he could not cater to same-sex weddings, as to do so would have been a violation of his Christian beliefs. He said he has also declined to make a number of other types of cakes, including cakes for Halloween, bachelor parties, divorce, cakes with alcohol in the ingredients and cakes with atheistic messages. 

The couple then filed a complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights Commission for discrimination.

The commission ordered Phillips to serve same-sex weddings and to undergo anti-discrimination training. In a hearing in 2014, the civil-rights commissioner, Diann Rice, compared his declining to serve same-sex weddings to justifications for the Holocaust and slavery.

Alliance Defending Freedom took up Phillips’ case in court. He lost before an administrative judge in 2013, who ruled that the state could determine when his rights to free speech unlawfully infringed upon others’ rights.

Phillips then appealed his case to the state’s human-rights commission, which ruled against him. He appealed again to the state’s court of appeals, which also ruled against him. The Colorado Supreme Court did not take up Phillips’ case.

The case was appealed to the Supreme Court. It was relisted repeatedly throughout the winter and spring of 2017, before the court decided to take the case.

“I didn’t open this so I could make a lot of money,” Phillips said of his business, speaking at a panel event last September. “I opened it up so that it would be a way that I could create my art, do the baking that I love, and serve the God that I love.” 

Right, so who's discrimating against whom, again? 

REMNANT COMMENT:  One wonders when the growing fatigue factor over this kind of harassment is going to bring some much needed change and justice. Christians are being bullied, intimidated, harassed, hated and persecuted--and yet the mind-numbed robots at CNN and elsewhere are still trying to cast the victims in these cases as the aggressors.

Sound familiar? It should!

The Nazis used these same terror tactics against the Jews, with their brown-shirted thugs attacking Jewish-owned shops and instigating violence against Jews all across Germany.  

Dachau was set up to incarcerate thousands of Catholic priests who would sooner go to jail than violate their consciences at the command of Adolf Hitler and his jackbooted Nazi thugs. Thousands of those priests didn’t make it out alive.

So what's next for us? Another Dachau for Christian cake-makers? Christian preachers? Catholic priests?

Should the government call for a boycott of all Christian-owned businesses, just as Hitler did where Jewish businesses were concerned? 

Should we paint crosses and Christophobic slogans on windows of shops owned by Christians? 

Time for another Kristallnacht? Only this time for Christian bakeries and photography studios?

Should we introduce quotas for Christian children in public schools, just as the Nazis did where Jewish children were concerned?

It is time to start arresting Christians for refusing to violate their consciences…maybe exterminate a few million of them while we’re at it? 

Just how far down this rabbit hole is America prepared to go, a mere half-century after the Nazi Holocaust of Jews and Christians in Europe? 

It’s time to fight back, while we’re still on the right side of the barbed wire.

Thanks for leading the charge, Jack!justic for jack

Remnant TV received the following notice in its inbox this week:

"After manually reviewing your video, we've confirmed that it isn't suitable for all advertisers. As a result, it will continue to run limited or no ads."

YouTube demonetization

REMNANT COMMENT: While in London last month I had the pleasure of meeting a young Catholic priest from Libya who was staying in the parish house of an old priest priest friend I've known for 25 years. I asked him about this incident, as well as the conspiracy theory which has it that the event depicted in this video is a staged bit of theater dramatizing an event that never actually occurred. The priest was shocked to hear this, and surmised that such a theory would almost have to be the work of open borders /pro-Muslim immigration propagandists.

According to my  Libyan priest source, there is absolutely no doubt the 21 Coptic Christians were brutally martyred by ISIS. He even presented me with a copy of a well known icon that names the martyrs and is designed to help raise awareness of what happened to them.

20150224 icone noms martyrs coptes 20151231

So why would YouTube single out this particular RTV video to flag and demonetize? There is no exaggeration here, no violence, no nudity, no obscenity (as if the soft-porn peddling YouTube would care about that). We simply showed our viewers what happened to these young men in Libya.  

In fact, for those who missed it, here it is again:

Is the video sharing giant actually going to take steps to cover up the plight of persecuted Christians worldwide? If so, why? Is it because Christian persecution worldwide upsets the NWO/Soros-narrative? Is YouTube Christophobic?

Whatever the case may be, we'll not be backing down. Remnant TV stands in solidarity with our persecuted Christian brothers all around the world. The persecution is very real, and we're committed to adding our voice to those of the brave men and women attempting to raise awareness of what is happening to Christians worldwide, even if that means the powers that be will attempt to silence us in the process.

Christians must speak out now -- while we still have the luxury of being allowed to do so.

Hope from Uganda:

The Daily Monitor: Every Sunday morning, a special congregation of Catholics meets at the Uganda Catholic Management and Training Institute at Rubaga Cathedral, Kampala to celebrate the Tridentine Mass (traditional Latin Mass).

This Mass, comprised of mostly young people, started three years ago when a priest who could lead it became available.

Fr Christophe Nouveau is one of a kind in the country. “I was first contacted by some parishioners of Rubaga in late 2004 when I had just moved to Kenya. I had been invited there to start a traditional Latin Mass congregation and a few months into the mission, Uganda came calling,” he says.

The 46-year-old priest could only commit to one country at a time, and therefore could only visit the Rubaga parishioners once in a while for the next ten years. He moved to Uganda in 2015.

…An article in USA Today stated, “There is a movement among young Catholics to know, discover and preserve their Catholic heritage, and the traditional Latin Mass fits in with that. I think they are drawn to the liturgical richness of the past.”

Fr. Nouveau has also been contacted by Catholics in Tanzania, Rwanda and Burundi. He regularly travels to parishes in Mbale, Soroti, Kabale districts to lead the Latin Mass.

Why this Mass is important:

The traditional Latin Mass presents a great sense of beauty and reverence and a sense of historical continuity. A sense of awe fills your heart to know that when you come to the Latin Mass you are praying the same prayers that the saints from as far back as 1,500 years ago prayed including our very own Uganda Martyrs.”

So far, two young men have already been sent to a special seminary in France to gain expertise in leading the traditional Latin Mass and two more will leave this year for the same.

 

REMNANT COMMENT: This is far from over, friends. In the end Our Lady of Victory’s immaculate heart will triumph, and the revolution of Vatican II will take up permanent residence in the bowels of Hell...right where it belongs.
