The Remnant Will Never Forget
The Remnant devotes this section of our exclusively to testimonies by those who lived through the revolution of the Second Vatican Council.
This page is reserved for those who saw what happened, or heard what happened from those who did, and who truly understand how Catholic families were blown apart. Visitors who have personal reflections, or memories of traditionalists pioneers, or reminicences of the revolution are encouraged to tell their stories and share their pictures here. . . so that we will never forget.
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...

THE REMNANT UNDERGROUND: Headed up by Bishop Athanasius Schneider and two other Archbishops from Kazakhstan, a total of 6 bishops and 1 cardinal have now signed a statement of opposition to the pope-approved interpretations of Amoris Laetitia that non-repentant public adulterers can return to the sacramental life of the Church. This is revolution and counterrevolution in a Catholic Church in total crisis. Plus, looking ahead to October's Synod of Young People in Rome—will the Church deep six Humanae Vitae? Will the Vatican give the green light to so-called 'gay unions'? Finally, an old Jimmy Stewart movie, "Call Northside 777", includes a sobering reminder of what it used to mean to be Catholic--something Pope Francis would do well to consider.

But, it's happened before...
The Church is teetering on the edge of a multi-lateral, global schism following a controversial ecumenical council. Increasingly contentious factions within the hierarchy, many heavily influenced by corrupt and ambitious secular powers, are locked in a state of permanent and intractable conflict, confusing and corroding the Catholic life of the ordinary faithful. Multiple heresies are rising and Rome seems devoid of strength or authority to stop them.
Next Tuesday at the Argument of the Month:
In order to be a good Catholic in the modern Church, is it necessary to be some sort of progressive, open-minded Democrat, or an environmentalist, anti-capitalist and celebrate Martin Luther's Protestant Revolt? Michael Matt and Father Echert say NO! AOTM asks why not? Is that not the message from the majority of Catholic leaders? Is it OK, for Catholics to stick with traditional moral theology or is it necessary for all of us to change how we believe and get ready to go along with the times? Come see our very own Fr. Echert and Michael Matt defend their positions in a crossfire of objections from our moderator. Come enjoy the good food and fellowship at the next AOTM!

As a follow-up to what the Remnant previously reported, the Northwest Indiana (NWI) Latin Mass Community now has many beautiful photos of Bishop Joseph Perry's Traditional Latin Mass at the Gary Diocese Cathedral—the first there in 50 years: https://nwilatin.org/cathedral (sample photos below).
The event filled the Cathedral and made the front-page of The Times, the major newspaper of northwest Indiana: http://www.nwitimes.com/lifestyles/faith-and-values/religion/cathedral-of-the-holy-angels-in-gary-hosts-traditional-latin/article_7159ef58-907e-5adb-b989-d83b4b613630.html
Even with a temperature of -4 degrees (and windchill of -19), over 250 people came to Gary on a holiday—even without it being a day of obligation—and filled Holy Angels Cathedral.
This is the first fruit of 2 years of hard work by the NWI Latin Mass Community.
“Seven times a day have I given praise to thee, for the judgments of thy justice.”
A short time ago I was talking to a friend, a traditional Catholic, who asked me this question, and I was a bit surprised. It’s not that she’d never heard of it but that she had mostly only heard the name and references to it, without ever having actually heard an explanation. And, of course, being about my age, she had never come across any actual use of the Church’s “other” liturgical practice in the normal course of her parish life. I realised that a person who had never had much contact with the monastic religious who use it (rare in these dark times) could go their whole life never see the Divine Office and could be confused by the profusion of terminology used to describe it.

REMNANT COMMENT: Viva Cristo Rey, queridos hermanos y hermanas católicos en Argentina. ¡Mantener la fe!
Happy New Year! First, the good news: the world didn’t end in 2017. We’re still here, and unless something cataclysmic happens in the next few hours, we're evidently to be spared our much-deserved Divine chastisement...at least this year.
The bad news? We Catholics still have the leadership we deserve. The newly christened ‘dictator pope’ may have started at the bottom but over the course of 2017 he seems to have found a way to go down. In fact, his papal expedition to theological La La Land has its sights set on October 2018--the much dreaded Synod of Young People.
So, to the prediction: I predict that before this New Year comes to an end, Pope Francis and his band of merry men will—either directly or indirectly—find a way to give at least tacit approval of so-called “gay unions”.

When even more conservative bishops such as Alexander Sample find it necessary to partner with Evangelical outfits such as the 'non-denominational' ministry, ‘Young Life, to try to get disenfranchised Catholic kids to come back to the Church, it's obvious there's a big problem.
Just 50 years after Vatican II the Catholic world has lost its Catholic identity to such an extent that the bishops are reduced to consulting non-Catholic ministries to help them stop the hemorrhaging of Catholic young people out of the Church. One wonders if a non-denominational Protestant partnership can help resolve problems caused by a largely Protestantized Catholic liturgy. But there is a Catholic alternative that is working and that is taking root all over the world.
