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...

Funeral and Wake: The family will be present to receive friends on Friday from 3-9 PM at the (Tonawanda Chapel) AMIGONE FUNERAL HOME, INC. 2600 Sheridan Drive (at Parker Blvd) where the Rosary will be said at 7:00 PM. A Solemn High Requiem Mass will be celebrated on Saturday at Corpus Christi Church, 199 Clark Street, Buffalo, at 9:30 AM.
In your charity, please remember the repose of the soul of our brother and champion defender of Christ’s Church, John Vennari, who passed away earlier today.
Quite frankly, I have no words to adequately express the magnitude of this loss, both for the traditional Catholic movement and for us personally here at The Remnant. John was our ally, our friend and our brother in arms. The thought of fighting in these trenches without him at our side is still just too unthinkable. And the Church has lost a most faithful watchman with this passing of the editor of the incomparable Catholic Family News.
Please pray for John, now and throughout the rest of Passiontide. I don’t believe it to be a mere coincidence that this loyal soldier of Christ underwent his passion during the very days when the Church remembers the passion of the One John served so faithfully.

After four years of the Bergoglian tumult, it is undeniable that we are witness to a Pope who is averse to sound doctrine and whose teaching, if one can call it that, is generally unreliable if not positively contrary to the Faith. The faithful look on with growing alarm and disgust as Pope Bergoglio commits an error almost every time he opens his mouth to speak, earning the world’s applause for his cavalier disregard of orthodoxy and traditional disciplines of Apostolic origin. The Church is rocked by the horrific impact of his formal, ghostwritten documents. Evangelii Gaudium, Laudato si’ and Amoris Laetitia are rife with false statements of fact, misleading citations, dubious opinions on matters far beyond the papal competence, captious theological propositions, and blatant departures from prior teaching on faith and morals—always intermingled, however, with orthodox bits and pieces that allow for a sophistical defense of continuity with the Magisterium.

Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre
Editor's Note: This is an expanded version of an article that appeared in a recent print-edition of The Remnant. We're reproducing it here in the interest of furthering constructive discussion of what could become (if it happens) the most significant development in the Church since Summorum Pontificum. These discussions before the fact seem appropriate to me, but should not be construed as an attack on those who are in favor of regularization. There are good men on both sides of this issue, and what follows are merely the opinions of one man who could be very much mistaken. This is just how I see it--as an outsider--and the reader is perfectly free to dismiss my concerns, and remain my friend and brother in arms. MJM
The Remnant does not traffic in rumors. But over the past few months, rumors of an imminent Society of St. Pius X regularization have abounded, with Superior General Bishop Bernard Fellay finally confirming that these are indeed more than mere rumors, though the matter is far from settled.
Regularization and the Total Vindication of Archbishop Lefebvre FeaturedBy: Michael J. Matt | Editor
So when do we apologize to pagan Rome for regarding its final days as the most decadent in history, when ours are so much worse?
When do we admit that we’re just as sick and twisted as any Nazi eugenicist, the account of whose perversity once terrorized our society? Now, we are worse than Nazis.
Given what America has become—in which the words “perversion” and “evil” and “innocence” have lost their meaning completely—won’t God soon need to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah?
Scientist Gerhard Domagk said, "Whatever contributes to the preservation of life is good; all that destroys life is evil”—unless, that is, we’re talking about Planned Parenthood doctors, folks who laugh as they tear babies apart, sell the little bloody body parts, and then get paid for the “good work they do” by every single one of us.
God forgive us for the demonic lunatics we’ve become.
| Ballad to Our Lady of Tears
| A prayer for the unborn
|by Therese Ickinger
|(Reprinted from The Remnant, 1976)
O Mary, Mother of all men
Remember how one day
You rocked a little Boy to sleep
In a cradle filled with hay.
Remember how you held Him,
The long and weary night,
You fled from Herod’s soldiers
In Egypt’s dismal flight.
How the lonely stars looked down.
How the night was long;
With hoof beats in the distance
But in your heart a song.
You trod the darkness round you
You warmed the sands so cold
You lulled the winds to whispers
And turned the tears to gold.
When God was very little
And Life was very new,
With death a lurking shadow
He chose to cling to you.
He chose not Heaven’s legions,
Nor Michael’s sword of flame,
To shield Him in the darkness;
He chose your tender name.
Your tender arms to hold Him,
Your tender eyes so deep
Your tender voice to comfort
And sing His soul to sleep.
Look down again in pity
O Mother of Our Lord
Upon a world where children still
Must flee from Herod’s sword.
Where Moloch claims his victims still
And still the price is paid
Where lust is crowned and love is drowned
And death a grim charade.
Where little ones are torn apart
Or burned with hateful brine
Where murder in a velvet coat
Is a social valentine.
These little hands, these little feet,
These little eyes and ears,
O Mother, see their misery
Baptize them in your tears.
They have never known the sunshine
Nor felt the cool of rain
Their heritage is horror
Their first caress is pain.
They were the breath of springtime.
The promise April gave,
Til winter’s vultures ravished-
Their cradle is their grave.
And now before the Father
Some ask: whose can these be?
Please wrap your arms around them,
Say: these belong to me.
For love of Him who was little too,
Who traded Heaven to be with you,
Take these children torn apart
To the playground of your heart.
Bruised and swollen, crucified
On the cross of human pride;
May their bodies perfect rise,
Take their souls to paradise.
Let them not for want of grace
Linger in a darkened place.
Ask your Son to give them joy,
He was once a little Boy.
Now and at the hour of death,
May they feel your gentle breath;
Tuck them in a bed of white,
O Mother, sing to them tonight!

Pope Francis blessed by Patriarch Bartholemew
Editor’s Note: Now that I have your attention, please take a few moments to read the following “Letter to the Eastern Clergy on the Reunion of the Churches,” by Pope St. Pius X. I discovered it in an old file of my father’s, and I don’t believe it’s available anywhere else on the Internet. The year was 1910 and this, Dear Friends, is how Catholic popes used to speak…a long, long time ago in a Church far, far away. MJM
Venerable Brethren, Health and Apostolic Benediction,
It would be hard to say how much has been done by holy men from the closing years of the ninth century, when the nations of the East began to be snatched from the unity of the Catholic Church, in order that our separated brethren might be restored to her bosom. Beyond all others the Supreme Pontiffs, our predecessors, in fulfillment of their duty of protecting the faith and ecclesiastical unity, left nothing undone, by fatherly dissidence which brought bitter grief to the West, but to the East gave loss. The witnesses of this, to mention but a few among many, are Gregory IX, Innocent IV, Clement IV, Gregory X, Eugenius IV, Gregory XIII, and Benedict XIV. (1)
Pope Calls Orthodox to Return to Church of Rome – ‘Port of Everlasting Salvation’ FeaturedBy: Michael J. Matt | Editor
According to a report in LifeSiteNews –
Cardinal Raymond Burke said Friday the four dubia cardinals will "simply have to correct the situation" in "a respectful way" if Pope Francis doesn't respond to questions seeking moral clarity on Amoris Laetitia.Burke answered questions submitted by the audience after speaking at St. Raymond of Peñafort Catholic Church as part of its distinguished speaker series.
He was asked, "There are a lot of rumors circulating about the dubia that you and three other esteemed cardinals sent to the Holy Father about divorce, remarriage, and Communion…do you know if there will be a response to the dubia from the Holy Father or the CDF?"
"I certainly hope that there will be because these are fundamental questions that are obviously raised by the text of the...post-synodal apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia," Burke responded. "Until these questions are answered, there continues to spread a very harmful confusion in the Church."
Part of this confusion "regards the truth that there are some acts that are always and everywhere wrong," he said. "The cardinals will continue to insist that there be a response to these honest questions." READ MORE HERE
REMNANT COMMENT: Over the past few months, The Remnant has been condemning Vatican invitations to avowed pro-aborts to speak at various conferences hosted by the Pontifical Academies for Sciences and Social Sciences. According to Lifesitenews, Cardinal Burke was also asked about this scandal and would not, it would seem, disagree:
Let's not give up on Cardinal Burke. Fake news reports about His Eminence abandoning all efforts to convince Pope Francis to clarify and correct the exceedingly problematic paragraphs and footnotes of the post-synodal Exhortation Amoris Laetitia are just that -- fake news.
"It’s simply a scandal," said Burke. "I’m scandalized by it and I don’t see how any good Catholic wouldn’t be scandalized by that. I don’t understand it."
Let us continue to pray for Cardinal Burke and the other cardinals and bishops with whom he stands.

The Saint Benedict Center has announced that the Rev. Father Calvin Goodwin, a cleric of the Fraternity of Saint Peter, is in poor health and may die very soon. Father Goodwin suffered a severe hemorrhagic stroke on Wednesday, October 12, and that he has taken a downturn after a period of some stability. Please pray for this wonderful Catholic priest.
The Saint Benedict Center is offering an interesting YouTube video of Father Goodwin discussing his path to the traditional Latin Mass HERE

Laetare Sunday's sermon gets right to the heart of the matter of Mass -- the sacrifice. Beginning with the miracle of the loaves and fishes, Father illustrates how this prefigures the Last Supper, the Sacrifice of Calvary and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Then Father shows how from Luther to Bugnini the idea has been to destroy the sacrifice and wreck the Church. Father's powerful conclusion will make you want to become a saint today!
