Who is Pachamama?
Leaving aside desperate Neo-Catholic claims to the contrary, the Pachamama (pronounced Pawch-mama) that is dominating the Amazon Synod is, in fact, the pagan “Earth Goddess” worshipped by the Incas of South America.
The Inca Empire (1200-1532) is the best documented of all the Peruvian civilizations and, as a result, much of what is known about the deities of the empire is also well-documented and relies less on the myths and conjecture typically associated with the study of other pagan religions.
The Incas worshipped the Sun God Inti and the Earth Goddess Pachamama. They also engaged in human sacrifice. In fact, the Andes Mountains were regarded as the sacred dwelling places of respected spirits, the 22,960-mountain peaks having once served as sites of human sacrifices. (Pachamama: Incan Earth Goddess)
What about Our Lady of Guadalupe?
When Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared to Saint Juan Diego in 1531, she made it clear that her mission was to dispel from the Americas the old serpent—Satan himself—and to reclaim those lands for her Son, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ the King.

Michael J. Matt sounds the alarm: In the middle of the increasingly bizarre Amazon Synod, the most prominent Synod fathers will make a special pilgrimage across Rome to the Santa Domitilla catacomb in order to renew the very weird 'Catacomb Pact'—a signing ritual that took place 54 years ago with more than 40 Latin American bishops on the eve of the conclusion of the Second Vatican Council.
The event--hailed by many as the secret founding of Liberation Theology--marks the moment when the Church of Vatican II vowed to become the “Church of the Poor” and to radically reorient her mission from that of the Divine Commission of Jesus Christ to the Freemasonic mission of the Church of Accompaniment.

On the famous Borgo Pio in Rome, LifeSiteNews co-founder John-Henry Westen interviews Remnant editor-in-chief Michael J. Matt.
Think the 'Unite the Clans' initiative is pie-in-the-sky nonsense? Well, think again! It's already happening.

Michael Matt reports on a major event that took place just across from the Vatican Press Office here in Rome this week: The launch of a new book-length interview of Bishop Athanasius Schneider that covers everything from the current pontificate, to Vatican II, to Archbishop Lefebvre's role in the resistance, to the Society of St. Pius X and even the role of Freemasonry.
People often complain that we need to "do something" about what’s happening in Rome. Well, here it is!

From high atop the colonnades of St. Peter's in Rome, Michael Matt offers commentary on John Henry Newman's canonization which took place today (October 13, 2019) in the Vatican.
Bittersweet? Of course! The process of canonization has lost a great deal of credibility over the past thirty years, as the Vatican has streamlined it and even politicized it in an apparent attempt to canonize the Revolution of Vatican II itself.
John Henry Newman was a great man who wouldn't have recognized anything going on here at the Amazon Synod as Catholic. Go figure.
Nevertheless, the ceremony today was dignified, included lots of Latin and plenty of beautiful and traditional Catholic sacred music.
This video also includes magnificent video clips of the Vatican which the RTV team shot from the colonnades during the ceremony.
As confusion reigns supreme in Rome, let's take a moment ask John Henry Newman to pray for us and for our Church in crisis and under siege.

Reporting from Rome, Michael Matt addresses the fundamental problem with the Amazon Synod: The human element of the Church have become so diabolically disoriented that they really don't know what the Church is or was ever supposed to be.
They’ve abandoned the Divine Mandate to go out and convert all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
In case you missed it, this is an excerpt from last week's RTV show from here in Rome -- "VATICAN in CRISIS: Bracing for Amazon Schism".
This is the clip of the awesome demonstration of prayer and resistance that took place in the pope's own front yard just before the Synod.

New from RTV in Rome: The Vatican jumps the shark
In the press hall today in Rome, an official spokesman for the Amazon Synod—Bishop Krautler—admitted, incredibly, that he wants women ordained as priests.
And as Michael Matt reports, this was AFTER the same bishop had told the press that the Amazon people can’t even begin to understand the concept of a celibate priesthood. Well of course they can’t, Excellency. (No racism here, of course!)
