RTV Covers Vatican Sex Abuse Summit in Rome
Remnant TV was in Rome this past week covering the Vatican’s clerical sexual abuse summit on the “protection of minors”. It seemed a dismal assignment, to be sure, but the reason it was necessary for The Remnant to be in the Eternal City was so we could throw in with our traditional Catholic allies in Rome who’d organized an act of formal resistance to the Vatican sham summit.
Going in, we all knew that the ultimate goal of the summit was to establish child abuse—not rampant homosexuality in the priesthood—as the main cause of a crisis in the Catholic Church which now rivals that of the Protestant Revolt. (Remnant TV coverage of this event as well as the Vatican summit itself, can be found on The Remnant’s YouTube channel, and for your convenience is laid out below:View items...

New from Remnant TV...
Remnant TV's CATHOLIC SAINTS AND HOLY DAYS pays homage to the great Evangelist, St. Mark, founder of the Church in Alexandria and author of the one of four Gospels of the New Testament. Did you know that, according to the Coptic tradition, the setting of the very first Pentecost was the home of St. Mark?
Forget Genesis. Forget Adam and Eve. They did not actually exist. To Teilhard, the universe began from something—a je ne sais quoi, perhaps the God Particle the Cern scientists are trying to isolate. Over eons and eons the universe evolved according to its own inner becoming. His was a reimagined Christianity, and we see it all around us today.
I was in the backyard, scissors in hand, checking my flowers. The roses were in bloom, and I wanted to cut some for the crystal bud vase in my kitchen. I walked over to the largest bush. It was so tall it almost reached the breakfast room window. It dwarfed the bushes on each side.
Why is that one so much bigger than the rest? I wondered as I hurried over to it. When I got closer, I was surprised to see how bare the branches were. There were only a few blooms and fewer buds on the bush. But the thing’s huge, I said to myself. Where are the roses?
"Then the poor child, commanded by Bergoglio to come up and whisper in his ear, was practically dragged up to the papal chair where, now crying, he was induced to hug the Pope like a department store Santa Claus."
Editor’s Note: Another issue of The Remnant brings you yet another diagnosis of what Pope Bergoglio has done this week to undermine the Faith. To readers who may wonder why we ought to continue this exercise we would answer: We have no choice in the matter. The current occupant of the Chair of Peter is mounting a determined assault an every aspect of Catholic teaching and practice he finds disagreeable, including the teaching of his own immediate predecessors on fundamental moral questions. In short, we have a Pope who is literally attacking the Church.
It would be a dereliction of duty not to express our continuing opposition to the radically Modernist program of “a dictator Pope” Catholics the world over now recognize "is engaged in a deliberate effort to change what the Church teaches," a veritable “lost shepherd” who “is misleading his flock.” To ignore Pope Bergoglio when one is in a position to offer any form of effective opposition, even if it be only a salutary warning about his errors, is to ignore the common good of the Church in favor of personal tranquility. This we cannot do.
Cardinal Joseph Zen (Getty) has accused the Vatican of 'selling out the Church in China'
When Jorge Mario Bergoglio was elected supreme pontiff in March of 2013, the world seemed to expect a softening of Pope Benedict XVI’s crystalline, intellectual style. At first, the new Pope Francis’ many gaffes and faux pas seemed part of this more relaxed approach to the papacy. I and many others pigeonholed Francis as a theological and mental featherweight, an affable simpleton whose papacy would be much more about embracing children and washing the feet of the faithful, and much less about issuing encyclicals and wading into the debate arena with the secularist academics.
Zeno’s papacy: Francis cuts finer and finer slices of reality away as he daily halves the distance between himself and a formal declaration of heresy.
The ancient Greek mathematical philosopher Zeno of Elea (c. 450 BC) proposed a kind of thought experiment in which, in order to complete a distance of, say, a hundred meters, a runner would have to first divide in half the distance between himself and the finish line. But to get to that fifty meter mark, he would first have to achieve half that distance, which would in turn require that he halve that 25 meters, and to get to that mark would have to halve that distance… Each iteration of the project of getting from here to there requires splitting the difference again and again, meaning it would require an infinite regression of smaller and smaller distances be crossed to get to the finish line.

MERCY MISUNDERSTOOD: Modernist Notions of Confession
Did Pope Francis get the Church's teaching on Confession wrong? 'Sunday Sermons from South St. Paul' tackles the question. Plus, did the Risen Christ appear to Mary first? Why did He not admonish the Apostles in the Upper Room for abandoning Him on Calvary? What can we learn about Doubting Thomas, mercy and the establishment of Sacred Tradition?
Gaudete et Exsultate is exactly what we have come to expect from this drearily predictable pontificate. To quote Carl Olsen in : “many good qualities and substantive passages… often overshadowed, or even undermined, by straw men, dubious arguments, and cheap shots.”
Bergoglian pronouncements in general are precisely vehicles for the delivery of straw men, dubious arguments and cheap shots, all invariably directed against orthodoxy and orthopraxy. Expressions of piety are wrapped around crass ecclesiastical demagoguery, a velvet glove for the clenched fist of militant humility so typical of the boorish cant of leftist Latin American clerics.
New from RTV's 'The Remnant Underground'
Down in the Catacombs, Michael Matt takes a closer look at the upcoming Synod on Young People (October 2018). The Synod on the Family opened the door for public adulterers to receive Holy Communion. So, what will the Synod on Young People bring? Church blessings of 'gay unions'? Women deacons and cardinals? A general relaxing of discipline where Catholic moral theology is concerned? The most dumbed-down generation of Catholics in history have submitted their demands to Pope Francis. So what now? Plus, Cardinal Burke is back, reinforcing the Church's position on public resistance to a wayward pontiff. Is this too little too late, or is the Cardinal signaling that his long awaited 'formal correction' of Pope Francis is finally imminent?
Introductory Note to the Editor: The real life of the woman called St. Veronica is virtually unknown. Some writers just guess about who she really was. But in the four volumes of Anne Catherine Emmerick’s Life of Jesus Christ, she is mentioned many times. Sometimes Anne Catherine calls her Seraphia, her real name, and sometimes Veronica, the woman of the veil. I have gathered from these four books tidbits of information about her life and wrote this little narrative about her. I felt her story of true dedication to Jesus all His life should be known. It was my hope that you would publish this article in The Remnant so others will know who this saintly person really was. She was, according to Anne Catherine Emmerich, the keeper of the Holy Grail until Christ requested it for the Last Supper. That is another story in itself. J. Meyer
St. Peter preaching in the Gospel in the catacombs
Editor’s Note: This article first appeared in The Remnant back in March of 2007. Since that time, things have obviously gone from bad to worse, especially with arguably the worst pope in history sitting in Peter’s chair. I’m publishing this again as a way of reminding our readers of just how rapidly the war against God and family is progressing. In eleven years what was regarded as imminent and apocalyptic is now mild when compared to the bizarre new "normal" of 2018. I'm also hoping to encourage visitors to our site to subscribe to The Remnant. Every two weeks for fifty-one years, this newspaper has been going to press in an unrelenting attempt to undermine the agenda of Modernists in the Church and Christophobes in the State. We didn't care then and we don't care now who calls us “rad trad” or “schismatic” for holding the Catholic ground. And neither are we looking for Team Francis to offer us a fig leaf of Novus legitimacy. They are the ones struggling with a legitimacy crisis; but as long as they remain in power they will have to contend with us...with traditional Catholics who will not back down. We’re not going anywhere. We're not leaving the Church and heading for the tall grass. We will stay and fight until God removes them from His Church. Please join us. Subscribe to The Remnant and help us to do our part to resist the enemies of Holy Tradition to their faces. MJM
