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:

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” (Matthew 7:15)

New from Remnant TV...

In this episode of the Remnant Underground, Michael Matt juxtaposes the signs of the times – both good and bad – to argue that Globalist Christophobia is a dead-end street, and the future belongs to us. 

Amid the French government’s numerous controversial attempts to set the stage to wow international visitors and French residents at the upcoming Summer Olympics in Paris this year, one key concern has been raised by conservative-leaning critics of the leftist Emmanuel Macron administration: that of a France that is losing or has lost its Catholic heritage.

From RTV on the Road...

Remnant Tours attends Sunday Mass in Nantes, France, the city where General François Charette—“King of the Vendee”—was executed in 1796 for being a symbol of Catholic resistance to the Revolution.

One of the aspects of Vatican II that its liberal defenders seem to ignore these days is the Council’s defense of freedom of conscience, especially in religious matters, as set forth in the Declaration on Religious Freedom, Dignitatis Humanae:

“On his part, man perceives and acknowledges the imperatives of the divine law through the mediation of conscience. In all his activity a man is bound to follow his conscience in order that he may come to God, the end and purpose of life. It follows that he is not to be forced to act in a manner contrary to his conscience. Nor, on the other hand, is he to be restrained from acting in accordance with his conscience, especially in matters religious. The reason is that the exercise of religion, of its very nature, consists before all else in those internal, voluntary and free acts whereby man sets the course of his life directly toward God.”

So, what’s the takeaway? By now, most RTV viewers know that 20,000 people got together and walked from Paris to Chartres over the course of last weekend, and that another million viewers tuned in on Pentecost Sunday Mass when C-News showed up to livestream the entire traditional Latin Mass across France. But, again, what’s the takeaway? Why does it matter? If I didn’t walk to Chartres on pilgrimage why should I care if somebody else did?

Michael J. Matt explains exactly why it matters to anyone and everyone who wants to know what happened to our world, who did this to us, and how we’re going to take it back.

In his The Liturgical Year, Dom Guéranger described the great transformation that took place on the first Pentecost:

“These hundred and twenty disciples need but to speak of the Son of God, made Man, and our Redeemer; of the Holy Ghost, who renews our souls; of the heavenly Father, who loves and adopts us as His children: their word will find thousands to believe and welcome it. Those that receive it shall be called the Catholic Church, that is, universal, existing in all places and times. Jesus had said: ‘Go, teach all nations!’ The Holy Ghost brings from heaven both the tongue that is to teach, and the fire (the love of God and of mankind), which is to give warmth and efficacy to the teaching.” (Volume 9, p. 281)

UPDATE: Due to the spotty cell reception on the 3-Day pilgraimge in the French countryside, the Remnant Team was unable to post to this website. Below are the updates posted to Twitter by Michael Matt throuought the weekend:   







IN YOUR CHARITY, please keep our team here at The Remnant in your prayers as we head back to France for the Pentecost Pilgrimage to Chartres. This will be my 31st anniversary as leader of Our Lady of Guadalupe U.S. Chapter, which means that the Pentecost Pilgrimage has been an important part of the life of The Remnant family for over three decades. And over that time, it has been a grace from God to see the Chartres Pilgrimage take on a life of its own, as it gradually became the largest and most important “meeting of the clans” in the world today.

As readers will recall, this is a real pilgrimage which means a serious physical and spiritual challenge. It’s a three-day, two-night event that entails twelve hours of walking per day, sleeping on the ground at night, and offering up prayers and sacrifices for ourselves, our children, and our countries. I will be keeping the Remnant benefactors of this pilgrimage in my humble prayers as we follow the medieval route from Paris to Chartres (also the first stage of the Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage) to venerate the Veil of Our Lady, the third most holy relic in Christendom after the True Cross and the Crown of Thorns.  

Given the number of vocations to the priesthood and religious life that have been discerned along the road to Chartres over the years, I’m hard pressed to think of a single Catholic event that has impacted the life of the Church more than this one. I have finally lost track of the number of marriages that got their start on the U.S. Chapter, but I suppose that number is nearing one hundred by now.

Why does all of this matter to readers of The Remnant? Because readers of The Remnant helped to build this event into the success that it is today. You trusted me back in the early 1990s when I first asked you to support what was at that time a startup piece of Catholic French action. None of us knew if the idea of restoring an ancient pilgrimage was a realistic possibility, or mere fantasy based on a dream.

The Church is something that dies and rises again. The law of the Church is the law of our Blessed Lord. Unless there’s a Good Friday there will not be an Easter Sunday. The Church is always coming out of a tomb. And the Church will come out of this.”  -Archbishop Fulton Sheen

Well, God smiled on this massive undertaking: The Chartres Pilgrimage is the most successful annual traditional Catholic event in the world today. It is impacting the life of the Church from the pews to the highest levels. This year, for example, Cardinal Gerhard Muller (Prefect of the Holy Office under Pope Benedict XVI) will offer the Traditional Latin Mass on Pentecost Monday in the most important cathedral in Christendom.

On Pentecost Sunday – the day before – there may well be more than 20,000 pilgrims on hand for yet another Latin Mass, this time celebrated in the fields of France, alongside the road to Chartres. That sea of pilgrims will be composed of hundreds of young priests and seminarians, countless young families with many children, scouting troops, members of parishes, even subscribers to the same newspaper (in our case) –  all walking in a 3-day demonstration of fidelity to the Faith of our fathers, the Latin Mass, the Queenship of Mary, and the Kingship of Jesus Christ.

And what does all this indicate? That even in the wake of the disastrous Traditionis Custodes, the Church is rising again. Way back when I was a boy, Archbishop Fulton Sheen famously noted that:

“The Church is something that dies and rises again. The law of the Church is the law of our Blessed Lord. Unless there’s a Good Friday there will not be an Easter Sunday. The Church is always coming out of a tomb. And the Church will come out of this.” 

I suppose it could be said, therefore, that so many return to Chartres every year so that they can confirm the brethren, unite the clans, and encourage the remnant of Christendom to keep the faith until the Church comes out of this new tomb. After all, writes Gustav Mahler, “Tradition is not the worship of ashes, but the preservation of fire.” This is something that becomes so blessedly obvious along the road to Chartres. I don’t know how much longer I’ll be able to walk the 70-mile Pilgrimage to Chartres but on this 31st anniversary I want to thank all those readers of The Remnant who believed in this project, and who supported it financially and with your prayers for so many years. Your sacrifice was not in vain, as this event has been lifechanging for hundreds of thousands of people, including the editor of this newspaper. It has become a force multiplier for good, something which defines our movement, sustains our resistance, inspires our youth, and encourages us all, even those who can no longer physically fight but who can pray and walk along in spirit, to remain always confident that despite the Revolution the Faith lives on and the Church will rise from the ashes in God’s good time.

Let me share with you the hope I feel every Pentecost weekend on the Road to Chartres – Hope that is planting the seeds of Faith and Charity that will grow into the mighty forests of Christendom in God’s good time. If you could just see the 20,000 young pilgrims singing their lungs out and praying their Aves over and over again on the Road to Chartres, you would know as I do that all is not lost.

I am so very proud of what we’ve all done together in support of the Chartres Pilgrimage, which also includes raising awareness of the Catholic uprising in the Vendee – the holy ground in Western France where the tree of traditional Catholicism was watered with the blood of 500,000 traditionalists who laid down their lives for the Faith of our Fathers. This year, after the Chartres Pilgrimage, I will take another fifty young Americans back into the Vendee to retell their story and to pledge to finish their fight. I hope you will join us in spirit.

Remnant TV will be reporting from France via Twitter, Facebook, and If you’d like to follow along, please watch for my daily updates, follow me on Twitter ( Michael_J_Matt) and sign up for my E-letter.

And, finally, my dear friends, don’t lose hope. Let me share with you the hope I feel every Pentecost weekend on the Road to Chartres – Hope that is planting the seeds of Faith and Charity that will grow into the mighty forests of Christendom in God’s good time. If you could just see the 20,000 young pilgrims singing their lungs out and praying their Aves over and over again on the Road to Chartres, you would know as I do that all is not lost, that this war is just beginning, and that God wins in the end.

Vive le Christ Roi!

On May 2, 2024, Rorate Caeli published a “Call for the Resignation of Pope Francis,” setting forth numerous crimes and heresies committed by Francis. Originally signed by seventeen reputable Catholics, the lengthy “Major Statement” concluded with the following:

On April 10 this year, four Tibetans were arrested, detained, and supposedly beaten up by Chinese police while in detention as they had protested the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s land grab in Markham county in Chamdo, or Changdu in Chinese, located in the Tibet Autonomous Region, based on a report by Radio Free Asia (RFA).
