Vatican Sex Abuse Summit in Rome (0)
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...
As his pontificate nears its fourth anniversary, Pope Francis ever more clearly reveals a megalomaniacal conviction that the Church and her teaching are his to remake as he sees fit. Praising his own rather absurdly denominated “Apostolic” Exhortation opening the door to Holy Communion for public adulterers, Francis told the Jesuit general congregation gathered in Rome last October that Amoris Laetitia represents nothing less than a radical change in the Church’s view of “the whole moral sphere,” which at the time he was a seminarian “was restricted to ‘you can,’ ‘you cannot,’ ‘up to here, yes, but not there.’ It was a morality very foreign to discernment.”

POPE FRANCIS: Who Is This Man and What's Going On? (RTV PREVIEW)By: Michael J. Matt | Editor
Saint Padre Pio was the first stigmatized Priest in the Church, sent from God to be a sign for our times. Francesco Forgione (born 1887) received the five wounds of Christ only after ordination (1910) when he began offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and became known as Padre Pio. These visible and bleeding wounds of Christ, which he had received on September 20, 1918, had disappeared from Padre Pio by the time that he completed his last Mass on September 22, 1968 – two days after the 50th Anniversary. The wounds were related to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

This month marks the second anniversary of the martyrdom of 21 Coptic Christians at the hands of Islamic terrorists. Their crime? Loving Christ enough to die for Him. Would Roman Catholics do the same? What motivates martyrs, if not love? Michael Matt asks the question: Is it because the New Order no longer speaks of Holy MOTHER Church that so few of her sons seem willing to die for her anymore?
What have we lost? What was life in the Church like just 40 years ago? Growing up Catholic...and remembering what we lost. Scapulars. Meat-less Friday. Ember Days. Midnight Masses. Catholic Schools. Unlocked churches. Kids on bikes (sans helmet). Dogs without leashes. Large Catholic families. Remember?
Michael Matt 'goes off' on the revolution of Vatican II, pointing out what life was like before Catholics got "sophisticated."

VATICAN CITY – Senator Tim Kaine met with Pope Francis after attending a general audience with him on Wednesday. Kaine and the Pope discussed the Holy See’s work to address the global refugee and migrant crisis, according to the senator’s office.
“As the Pope stated so clearly yesterday, it is a ‘moral imperative’ to protect and defend the ‘inalienable rights’ of refugees and respect their dignity, especially by adopting just laws that protect those fleeing dangerous or inhumane situations,” said Kaine in a statement.
Kaine also participated in a discussion focused on Latin American issues with Vatican officials and members of other religious orders and meet with the Jesuit Refugee Service to discuss its work with refugees and asylum seekers.
REMNANT COMMENT: Thanks again, Francis. You're really helping the pro-life movement:
And the pro-family movement:
Whatever! It's Pope Francis. What do you expect?

John asked me to do him a favor and help notify his many, many friends all around the world that he may not live to see his birthday on Friday. He wishes everyone to know that he’s not in pain. He wishes us all to know that, as he put it, “either we believe in Divine Providence or we don’t. I believe in it, and I know that God has known for all eternity that I would be here in this hospital today, ready to die.”

SUNDAY SERMONS: Father speaks of St. Paul's letter to the Corinthians, wherein he lists his sufferings and persecutions--his so-called "Fools List"—for the sake of Jesus Christ. Father then compares the sufferings of St. Paul to those of Catholics who've tried to remain faithful to Christ over the past 50 years of revolution in the Church.

Raymond Cardinal Burke told an Italian television program this week that he does not believe his recent assignment to Guam to preside over an investigation of a Church trial of an archbishop accused of abusing altar boys back in the 1970s is, in fact, a punishment from Pope Francis. The Cardinal's statements can be read here.
In the interview, Cardinal Burke insists that his assignment came from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, on which he still serves as president of the Apostolic Tribunal. Cardinal Muller, who heads the CDF, has become an outspoken defender of Amoris Laetitia -- Pope Francis’ controversial post-synodal exhortation that calls for divorced and remarried Catholics to be allowed to receive Holy Communion—the same document, by the way, to which Cardinal Burke and three other cardinals will raise formal corrections if Pope Francis refuses to answer five dubia, or questions, regarding its orthodoxy and apparent errors.

MSNBC enlists the aid of radically liberal Jesuit, Father James Martin, to try to target and destroy the "radical Traditionalism" which is allegedly rising up from St. Peter's Square to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave and beyond. In his eagerness to lend a hand, Fr. Martin proceeds to equate what he calls "rad trads" with – wait for it – the entire Church Militant on earth. (Finally, he got something right.) Michael Matt comments on this bombshell, and then shares his opinion on an SSPX- Vatican regularization in the midst of the chaos and destruction of arguably the most destructive pontificate in history.

So, the inevitable has finally occurred: Pope Francis has speculated openly that President Donald Trump may turn out to be the next Adolf Hitler. I wish to note at the outset that I am not at all interested (at the moment) in defending the incoming American administration, or even in considering it directly. Let’s wonder instead about the characteristic way in which this Holy Father consistently tries to demonize others who might conceivably stand in the way of the accomplishment of his agenda. Since he has brought it up, let’s focus on this particular way--on Pope Francis playing the Nazi card, no less.
