Vatican Sex Abuse Summit in Rome

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:

LiturgyGuy.com frontman, Brian Williams writes:

For the past two years the Fort Hood Traditional Latin Mass community has celebrated All Souls Day with an outdoor Mass offered on the hood of a Korean era Army Jeep. While the Mass is offered for the souls of all the faithful departed, it is especially for soldiers who fell in battle, including Father Emil J. Kapaun, chaplain for the 8th Calvary during the Korean War. Fr. Kapaun was famously photographed offering the Mass on the hood of a Jeep during the war, shortly before his capture and eventual death, at the hands of the North Koreans.

Fort Hood’s Latin Mass Community, established in 2015 and comprised of approximately 120 faithful, has been averaging upwards of 50-60 weekly attendees at their Sunday Latin Mass. They have also been profiled on EWTN’s Extraordinary Faith series, in an episode scheduled for broadcast later this year. Unfortunately, all of that may soon be coming to an end.

Like many other service men and women in the Archdiocese for the Military Services, the Traditional Latin Mass community at Fort Hood might become victims to the ongoing vocations crisis. With their current chaplain set to retire from active military duty this summer, they are likely to find themselves without a priest capable of offering the Traditional Mass.

One of the founding members of the Fort Hood Traditional Latin Mass Community, Sergeant Major Johnny Proctor, US Army, III Armored Corps Chaplain Sargeant Major, reached out to Archbishop Timothy Broglio of the Archdiocese for the Military Services for help. More importantly, SGM Proctor wrote the archbishop offering a potential solution to the crisis: invite more traditional priests to consider joining the military as chaplains.

That the military is suffering a priest shortage is undisputed. Archbishop Broglio has said the need for Catholic chaplains is “desperate”, noting that an already bad situation is about to get worse. READ MORE HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: Unfortunately, the Archbishop's response signals trouble for this Latin Mass community.  As the headline of the Liturgy Guy article suggests, for some it is apparently better to have no priests at all rather than priests trained to offer the Latin Mass. Why so much fear and apprehension over the Mass saints, martyrs, popes and faithful Catholics attended for almost two thousand years...before the advent of the Second Vatican Council?  This is the Mass St. Thomas More heard. This is the Mass of St. Joan of Arc, St Therese, St. Ignatius of Loyola. This is the Mass St. Maximilian Kolbe offered exclusively. The Mass of Pope John Paul’s First Communion and Ordination. The Mass at which Sister Faustina worshipped every day.  The Mass of the Cristeros. The Mass Archbishop Broglio's own grandmother had on her wedding day and every day thereafter.

So why is this Mass treated like a dangerous pariah that must always and forever be somehow subservient to the New Mass---a 50-year-old experiment in liturgical innovation that Pope Benedict XVI himself finally admitted on February 14, 2013 (in his last address to the Roman clergy) has been totally "trivialized", to use his own word, and riddled with massive abuses?

Why?  Answer this question correctly and you will have unraveled the secret to the entire Modernist revolution in the Church today.

 

Each time a terrorist attack takes place or an Islamist bomber plants his (or her) deadly device in a crowded market place or at school or in a concert venue, I recall again that remarkable film that remains seared in my memory, “Day of the Siege.” I have written about it and strongly recommended it in other published articles. A shortened, more compact version of a longer, Polish-Italian production, the film recounts in chilling detail the last major Muslim attempt to invade Europe, and the final, climactic battle at the gates of Vienna, September 11, 1683, that saved Christendom from the Islamic hordes…until recent decades. The small Christian army of less than 50,000 men, led by the intrepid King Jan Sobieski of Poland and Prince Eugene of Savoy, inflicted on the Islamic Turkish force of 300,000 a complete and signal defeat.

Michael Matt and Chris Ferrara on location in Fatima on the centenary of Our Lady's most public and important apparition.

The Fatima Prayers are omitted from the Rosary at Fatima? Why? Because they mention Hell, and Modernists don't like that word?  Has the consecration of Russia occurred exactly as Our Lady requested? Has the entire Third Secret of Fatima been revealed. Did Cardinal Burke exonerate the late Father Nicholas Gruner? What's with all the controversy surrounding Fatima--an apparition approved by the Church and a place visited by 8 of the last ten Popes. 

DailyWire.com reports:

An American Catholic Cardinal has finally lent voice to an obvious truth that has eluded our virulently-politically correct society: Christianity and Islam do not worship the same God.

“I hear people saying to me, well, we’re all worshipping the same God, we all believe in love,” Cardinal Leo Raymond Burke, an archbishop who once served at the highest court at the Vatican, said at a teleconference introducing his new book on Christian theology.

Making a clear distinction between the two most popular monotheistic faiths, Burke argued that Islam’s God “is a governor.” In contrast, Christianity’s God is “giver of revelation,” Burke explained, saying that for Catholics, God’s law is written “on our hearts” and “we’re given a divine grace to live according to that law.”

“I don’t believe it’s true that we’re all worshipping the same God, because the God of Islam is a governor,” he elaborated.  “In other words, fundamentally Islam is, Sharia is their law, and that law, which comes from Allah, must dominate every man eventually.”

Warning parishioners about the dangers of cultural relativism, Burke stated that Christians have to proactively assert the truth about their faith without giving credence to politically correct distortions. READ FULL STORY HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: This, of course, flies directly in the face of the prevailing novel teachings of the Second Vatican Council, which in its Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, Lumen Gentium declared:

The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind’s judge on the last day.

The Second Vatican Council’s Declaration on the Relation of the Church to Non-Christian Religions, Nostra Aetate, is even more specific:

The Church regards with esteem also the Moslems. They adore the one God, living and subsisting in Himself; merciful and all-powerful, the Creator of heaven and earth, who has spoken to men; they take pains to submit wholeheartedly to even his inscrutable decrees, just as Abraham, with whom the faith of Islam takes pleasure in linking itself, submitted to God.

And Pope John Paul II reiterated this novelty on many occasions, perhaps most notably in his August 19, 1985 address to young Muslims in Morocco:

Christians and Muslims, we have many things in common, as believers and as human beings. We live in the same world, marked by many signs of hope, but also by multiple signs of anguish. For us, Abraham is a very model of faith in God, of submission to his will and of confidence in his goodness. We believe in the same God, the one God, the living God, the God who created the world and brings his creatures to their perfection.

Cardinal Raymond Burke is going where few high-ranking churchmen have dared to go over the past half-century.  He is now challenging key elements of the post-conciliar regime of novelty, making him without doubt one of the most courageous cardinals in the Church today. Pray for him, and ask God to watch over and protect him always.

Pro-life Pick for Prez, Pro-Death Pick for PopeLast week, President Donald Trump appointed a longstanding advocate of abstinence sex education to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and leftwing groups are furious. Valerie Huber, co-founder and president/CEO of Ascend – an organization that promotes abstinence sex education, an approach that normalizes sexual delay – has been appointed as chief of staff to the assistant secretary for health at HHS, under Secretary Tom Price.

Amanda Marcotte at Salon says that, with the appointment of Huber, abstinence education – which she calls the “shame-and-ignorance approach of the Bush era” – is making a “comeback under Trump.”

She bemoans Trump’s pro-life policies and what she views as “attacks” on “contraception access. READ MORE HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Pope Francis has appointed an Anglican minister to the Pontifical Academy for Life who has argued that abortion should be legal until “18 weeks after conception." 

According to LifeSiteNews.com, the University of Oxford Professor Nigel Biggar, who was appointed to the Academy for a five-year term, stated in a 2011 dialogue with pro-infanticide ethicist Peter Singer that a preborn baby is “not…the same kind of thing as an adult or a mature human being” and therefore does not deserve “quite the same treatment”.  The LifeSite report continues:

Pope Francis began his overhaul of the Academy last year by creating new statutes, that among other things, no longer required that members sign a declaration to uphold the Church’s pro-life teachings. The Pope’s next move was to then remove all of the academy members while promising to make new appointments himself. 

Former academy member Judie Brown wrote in an article earlier this year that she was shocked by what she called Francis’ move to “deconstruct” the Academy that was once considered a bastion of orthodoxy. 

“The Pontifical Academy for Life is undergoing an overhaul by Pope Francis and his political operatives within the Vatican’s hierarchy, and it is one of the most heartbreaking events I have seen in my lifetime. But given the politics of the Vatican, it is not surprising,” she wrote at that time. 

So the Pope appoints a pro-abort in Rome while the President gives the nod to a pro-lifer in Washington.  What's going on here?   Must be another "translation error", right?  Or perhaps the media are once again making things up about our dearly beloved and very conservative Pope. But, then again, on more than one occassion Professor Biggar has indeed gone on the record in favor or abortion. So what was Pope Francis thinking?  Maybe he just forgot to Google this guy. Otherwise, it begins to appear that even Donald Trump is a bit more Catholic than the Pope--at least when it comes to pro-life appointments to key positions. And that can't be right. Right?

FATIMA and Tradition

As the Church celebrates the 100th Anniversary of Our Lady’s appearances at Fatima this year, and with the canonizations of Jacinta and Francisco Marto, it may come as a shock to the vast majority of modern-day Catholics to come to the realization that the three shepherd children were ‘traditional’ Catholics.   As Our Lady was appearing to them in 1917, and as the Guardian Angel of Portugal prepared them for Her visit in 1916, the Fatima children faithfully and exclusively attended the Traditional Latin Mass.

However, it may come as a shock to some traditional Catholics to call to mind that in 1916 the Guardian Angel of Portugal administered Holy Communion to Jacinta, Francisco and Lucia under ‘both Species.’ Not to fear, dear friends, this was not an endorsement of the Protestant custom adopted after Vatican II of what some in the Church now call “Communion under both kinds.”

The Human Soul

Each human person was in the Mind of God from all eternity, body and soul.  Each would come into actual existence at the moment of conception, when this unique soul would be infused into its unique body.  Incredibly, beyond our comprehension, each of us was specifically willed by God from all eternity.  And, since the motive for everything which God does is love, He loves that which He creates.  God loves each person that exists.  He desires that this person share His life for all eternity in Heaven.

Pause & ponder, for a moment:  God desires that you personably (and every other human being) share His life forever in unimaginable happiness.

Of Fatima and Souls

By:
DSC 0349Record Numbers Walk from Paris to Chartres

This year’s Notre-Dame de Chrétiente Pentecost Pilgrimage to Chartres, France, concluded Monday, June 5 with a magnificent Pontifical High Mass offered by His Eminence Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke in the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Chartres.

For 26 years I’ve walked this pilgrimage, and well do I recall my old friend, Arnaud de Lassus (RIP), describing to me how it had been when he and his friends had arrived in the old city some 35 years ago, after having rejuvenated the old pilgrimage after Vatican II.  Those first pilgrims were not even allowed into the Cathedral, but were obliged to offer the Traditional Latin Mass outside the locked doors of Notre-Dame de Chartres.

I’ve been debating with people over the main motives of the current efforts of the regime in Rome to block or dismantle all attempts to return the Church to her original Catholic course. Many have said, not without justification, that we need to follow the money. Certainly in nearly every case of a concerted attack by the Bergoglians against a Catholic organisation, staggeringly large sums of money are nearly always involved. Still, we can’t discount the ideological motive either.

But “follow the money” is never bad advice for a journalist. This week, our friend Marco Tosatti stirred up the debate again, when he gave us another fascinating glimpse into the Vatican’s ongoing persecution of the saintly Fr. Stefano Manelli and the order he founded, the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate.
