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:

coccopalmerio and capozziCardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio, President of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts (charged with the interpretation of Canon Law) and his Secretary, Msgr. Luigi Capozzi

“Oh I make no excuses. All my life it's been my ambition to surround myself with rare and beautiful things. Suddenly faced with this golden opportunity...”  ~The Lavender Hill Mob

How stupid does the Vatican think we are? The contempt for which they hold the laity knows no bounds. The people of God are treated like ignorant sheep who are on a need to know basis and they need to know nothing.

Silence the sheep. 

The Pope doesn’t agree with the President’s policies on immigration, so naturally, he attacks Trump’s pro-life values…?

LifeNews.com/ Sept. 11, 2017: During an interview with a reporter from Mexico, the leader of the Catholic Church questioned President Trump’s pro-life values because of his recent decision to end DACA, a program that prevents undocumented young people from being deported. Francis says Trump’s decision to stop the program betrays his pro-life views and devalues family.

Here’s more:

In a half-hour press conference on the flight back to Rome Sept. 10 after a five-day visit to Colombia, the pontiff also said he hoped Trump would reconsider his decision to stop the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, also known as DACA.

“I have heard the President of the United States speak,” the pope said, responding to a question from a Mexican journalist about Trump’s decision. “He presents himself as a pro-life man. If he is a good pro-lifer, he should understand that the family is the cradle of life and you must defend its unity.”

Francis said that while he has not studied the specifics of the DACA program, he believes “removing young people from their family is not a thing that bears good fruit, neither for the young person nor the family.”

The pope said he is especially worried about young people who become detached from their roots and lose hope in the future, even then choosing to commit suicide. “Young people today need to re-find their roots,” he said. “And anything that goes against this robs them of hope.”

However, president Donald Trump has governed consistently pro-life since taking office in January.

During his first days in office he put the Mexico City policy back in place that protects taxpayers from funding International Planned Parenthood and its Global abortion agenda. He also signed an executive order to defund the UNFPA, United Nations agency that promotes abortion internationally and supports China’s population control program. Trump then expanded the order to defund Internation Planned Parenthood beyond what other pro-life presidents had done.

President Trump also cut off funding for sex education programs run by the Planned Parenthood abortion business that bring young people into its abortion agenda and builds the abortion company’s clientele. He also signed a bill to allow states to defund Planned Parenthood abortion company.

Trump also put pro-life advocates in key places such as Jess Sessions as Attorney General, Tom Price as HHS Secretary and Nikki Haley as UN Ambassador. READ MORE HERE

 


REMNANT COMMENT: I wonder if it’s possible for Pope Francis be any more in the tank for the Far-Left than he is now.  For the purposes of this Remnant Comment, it makes no difference what one thinks about President Trump's personal beliefs on the pro-life issue.  The point is this: A massive disruption in global pro-death politics came about in November of 2016 when a man named Donald Trump convinced pro-life, pro-God, pro-family America that he'd take up their cause.

Was it just politics? Who knows!  But Trump rode to the White House on the shoulders of pro-lifers. This is why the Left hate him, because he convinced good people that although his pro-life cred was far from established, he'd nevertheless make their cause part of his cause, along with the core issues that have long defined him—Second Amendment rights, education choice (including home-schooling), appointing conservative judges, tightening up the national borders, making America user unfriendly to the George Soros, NWO, EU whackos, etc. 

And so far Trump gets a B+ for effort, despite overwhelming opposition from the "conservative" GOP who've been lying to and exploiting the same group of voters for nearly half a century. At least Trump is trying to make good on his word to regular God-fearing Americans.

So, for the Pope to continue to blast this particular President while obstinately ignoring what's going on at the level of pro-life America reveals a positively Titanic Leftist keeling over of the Barque of Francis.  

And for Francis to suggest some sort of moral equivalence between the slaughter of millions of babies in their mothers' wombs on the one hand, and the MSNBC caricature of Trump’s DACA decision on the other, is beyond scandalous. 

Even if Trump were really planning to send illegal kids back to Mexico without their families (and he’s not, of course), this would not come close to the satanic depravity of murdering millions of unborn babies every year. I realize the Holy Father is no great theologian, but even he should be able to glean the difference between killing millions of kids in their mothers’ wombs and sending a few thousand home every year.

It's so obscene, in fact, that even those of us here at The Remnant who defend the Church's teaching against the separation of Church and State are tempted to encourage the Holy Father to begin listening to his own blather on the great merits of the secular state and the need to maintain proper separation from the Church.  In the case of Francis, good idea!   Perhaps the Holy Father could be persuaded to give pro-life America a break, in fact, and stay out of our politics altogether. 

Really, Holiness, you’ve done enough. It’s time to stop talking.

 

TownHall.com reports that Senate Democrats have attacked the Catholic Faith of one of Trump’s judicial nominees:

Senate Democrats came dangerously close to crossing a constitutional line regarding religious faith during an inquisition of one of President Trump's nominees for the federal court.

Senators grilled federal judicial nominee Amy Barrett -- demanding to know how her faith would influence her decisions from the bench. Barrett is a professor at Notre Dame Law School and a devout Catholic. 

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), expressed grave concerns that Barrett is a Catholic in good standing. 

"When you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you, and that's of concern when you come to big issues that large numbers of people have fought for, for years in this country," Feinstein said.

It was an "Are you now or have you ever been a Catholic" moment - and it was completely disgraceful. I warned you about this kind of religious waterboarding in my book, "The Deplorables' Guide to Making America Great Again."

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) interrogated Barrett over her use of the term "orthodox Catholics" - in reference to an article she wrote on capital punishment.

“Do you consider yourself an orthodox Catholic?” Durbin asked.

“If you’re asking whether I take my faith seriously and I'm a faithful Catholic, I am," she told the senator. "Although I would stress that my personal church affiliation or my religious belief would not bear on the discharge of my duties as a judge." READ MORE HERE

 

REMNANT COMMENT:  Yet another explantion for why the Christophobes hate President Trump.

Meanwhile across the pond, our friends at Gloria.TV/en.news are reporting that on September 5, Günther S., the editor of kreuz-net.at was convicted in Vienna, Austria, of an alleged "incitement against homosexuals", for which he received a suspended four-month sentence.

In a December 2015 article, Günther S. called practiced homosexuality “fornication” and an “anomaly” in keeping with Catholic doctrine. The judge in that case, Gerald Wagner, did not question that the phrases are based on Catholic teaching but nevertheless called them a “humiliation” of homosexuals and thus against the law.

You see what just happened there?  Catholic teaching was just criminalized in Austria -- the once-Catholic kingdom of Emperor Charles I of Austria who was, by the way, sent into exile and eventually died in 1922 for his Catholic convictions. 

Today it's the editor of Kreuz-net.at going to jail for publishing Catholic doctrine, tomorrow it'll be the editor of The Remnant.

By way of exposing the obvious double standard, by the way, en.news also points out that in February of 2015 charges were pressed in Vienna against militant gay protestors who displayed posters with the text: “Fist Christians?”. In that case, however, Austrian prosecutors refused to start an investigation, calling this "part of a pluralistic dialogue and freedom of speech".

Good to know!

Those still dismissing as "conspiracy theory" the fact that Chirstophobia is already ushering in a new reign of terror against Christians, evidently can't be bothered to watch the nightly news.

 

Pope Francis has issued a motu proprio, Magnum Principium, a modification of Canon Law 838, which grants bishops’ conferences greater control over the translation of liturgical texts. This includes the power to make adaptations which the bishops deem appropriate for their regions.  

Until now, Canon 838 (§1) stated that "The direction of the sacred liturgy depends solely on the authority of the Church, namely, that of the Apostolic See." Paragraph§2 said: "It is for the Apostolic See to order the liturgy of the universal Church," but now the Apostolic See has the task of "recognizing adaptations approved under the law of the Episcopal Conference." (§2) In other words, the power of the Curia is reduced from authorizing to approving texts that are generated by episcopal conferences.

Paragraph §4 makes it clear that the pope has now given bishops the power to determine much of the Church's liturgical direction. "Within the limits of his competence, it belongs to the diocesan bishop to lay down in the Church entrusted to his care, liturgical regulations which are binding on all."

This opens the door, not only to greater liberty in translating liturgical texts, but to creativity in drafting their own texts and rules. The bishops of an episcopal conference can now decide that if the faithful kneel to receive Communion, receive only on the tongue, or fail to participate in the hand shake of peace, this could be grounds to refuse them Communion.

The new motu proprio also supersedes Pope Benedict's Summorum Pontificum, which dispensed priests from the need to obtain episcopal permission to say the Traditional Latin Mass. With the new ruling, an episcopal conference can now rule that the offering of the Latin Mass is forbidden in a given diocese, or in an entire country, so that traditional Catholics no longer have the option of appealing to Rome for help. The episcopal ruling is now Church law.

What we are seeing is a further attempt to pull the Catholic world away from the Church's centralized authority and have a whimsical free-for-all. Francis himself, on October 17, 2015, called for a "healthy decentralization" of power in the Roman Catholic Church, including changes in the papacy and greater decision-making authority for local bishops, so this latest motu proprio is part of his plan to execute this decentralization.

It calls to mind the subversive designs of Mgsr. Annibale Bugnini—the key liturgical planner of Vatican II and principal architect of Sacrosanctum Concilium—as he relayed them to Masonic Grand Master Licio Gelli in a *letter dated July 2, 1967: "The greatest liberty was given to choose between the various formulas, to individual creativity, and to chaos!"

Under the pretext of making the Faith more accessible to the laity, the enemies of the Church introduced vernacular at Vatican II for the purpose of rendering the Church secular and divided, as opposed to holy and universal. It appears that Rome is now going the full nine yards with this plan. 

However, if holiness, unity, and crystal clear communication from God to man is what Francis aspires to, he will promptly scrap these modernist trappings and return the Mass to its original formula in the Latin Tridentine Rite—the formula which accomplished this perfectly through the centuries. This is what Pope Benedict XVI aspired to during his active pontificate, so why shouldn't Francis?

In speaking of the Traditional Latin Mass, Pope Benedict said on April 30, 2011: "What was sacred for prior generations, remains sacred and great for us as well." (Universae Ecclesia)

The irony of all this liturgical updating is that Latin—the very thing that modernists despise—is all too conveniently used as a tool to pull the faithful away from their Latin heritage. Perfidious documents such as the latest are published in Latin to make them appear "religious," but is this not Pharisaic? Vatican bureaucrats should at least have the decency to publish their revolution in their own Esperanto and reserve Latin for the holy things of God.

New From RTV...

For the first time in history, a number of bishops as well as representatives of every major traditionalist priestly fraternity in the world (including the SSPX and FSSP), as well as journalists from both sides of the Atlantic, will come together for a weekend conference to discuss united and principled defense of Holy Mother Church. This is NOT a traditionalist version of false ecumenism. There are serious issues which still come between the participants in this conference. However, this is a gathering of serious Catholics who realize the Church is suffering her worst assault in history, and thus requires all of her sons and daughters to stand in her defense.

This "Yuge" victory just in from the Washington Post:

In major Supreme Court case, Justice Dept. sides with baker who refused to make wedding cake for gay couple.

In a major upcoming Supreme Court case that weighs equal rights with religious liberty, the Trump administration on Thursday sided with a Colorado baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.

The Department of Justice on Thursday filed a brief on behalf of baker Jack Phillips, who was found to have violated the Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act by refusing to created a cake to celebrate the marriage of Charlie Craig and David Mullins in 2012. Phillips said he doesn’t create wedding cakes for same-sex couples because it would violate his religious beliefs.

The government agreed with Phillips that his cakes are a form of expression, and he cannot be compelled to use his talents for something in which he does not believe.

“Forcing Phillips to create expression for and participate in a ceremony that violates his sincerely held religious beliefs invades his First Amendment rights,” Acting Solicitor General Jeffrey B. Wall wrote in the brief.  READ MORE HERE


REMNANT COMMENT: Those who say it's futile to resist may be giving in to a defeatist attitude that makes our Far-Left friends very happy. Let’s face it, the fat lady hasn't quite sung yet---(I suppose that's not a particularly politically correct thing to say anymore. But it’s said now, snowflakes, so here's to all the fat ladies out there who haven't sung yet.  Keep up the good work, girls!) 

So it made absolutely NO DIFFERENCE that Trump beat Frau Clinton in the last election? I have a hunch this Colorado baker might take umbrage with that. Do you blame him? President Hillary's Justice Department would have had Mr. Phillips whipping up brownies in San Quentin by now.

 a pope

In a 450-page book-interview, Pope Bergoglio reduces adultery and fornication to “minor sins,” announces a “battle” against sexual morality via Amoris Laetitia, condones “civil unions” for homosexuals, pronounces all wars unjust, and says the secular state is a healthy thing.

If there was any doubt that Pope Bergoglio’s tumultuous reign is an unparalleled, indeed apocalyptic, threat to the integrity of the Faith, that doubt cannot possibly survive the publication of “Pope Francis: Meetings with Dominique Wolton: Politics and Society,” a 450-page compendium of rambling private conversations between Bergoglio and Wolton, a French sociologist, during an extraordinary series of private audiences at the Vatican.

About the Sancta Missa Conferences

Ten years ago, Pope Benedict XVI promulgated his Motu Proprio, Summorum Pontificum so that the faithful might have the opportunity to be spiritually fed and formed by the beauty of ancient form the Latin Mass (usus antiquior) that has been the treasure of Roman Catholics throughout the ages.

Since 2007, the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius have been pleased to have the opportunity to train priests, seminarians and laity about the classic form the Latin Rite celebrated according to the 1962 Missale Romanum (Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite) at workshops, conferences and though our website http://www.SanctaMissa.org

In our conferences we try to help the faithful learn to approach the "Mass of the Ages" with deeper reverence and love, so that as they are attracted to this venerable liturgy, they might more profoundly enter into the Eucharistic Sacrifice.

In our instruction on the traditional Mass of the Roman Rite, we strive to help everyone both intellectually and spiritually to understand its sacred ceremonies, and to be transformed by its inestimable beauty.

The Canons Regular of St. John Cantius have offered Sancta Missa Workshops many times in the Archdiocese of Chicago, across the USA, and abroad. The conference to be held in September is our first conference in the Springfield Diocese. This opportunity has unfolded as the Canons have been newly established in Springfield. This has been made possible by an invitation from His Excellency, the Most Rev. Thomas John Paprocki, Bishop of Springfield, with the generous blessing of His Eminence Blase Cupich, Archbishop of Chicago. As the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius come to the Springfield Diocese, we hope that our parish ministry at St. Katherine Drexel Parish (comprised of Sacred Heart Church and St. Patrick Church) and Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini Parish will be a blessing for the faithful. As we announce this conference, it is our pleasure to invite you to join us on Saturday, September 30, 2017, at Sacred Heart Church in Springfield, Illinois, as we learn from the wit and wisdom of Bishop Bruskewitz as we study more about the beauty of our Catholic faith and the sacred treasures of the Mass.

Sunday Sermons of South St. Paul.

"Martin Luther and the Church in Our Time." Father presents a brief history of Martin Luther and his heresies, and then connects the dots between those Lutheran errors and the new orientation of the Catholic Church in modern times.

Are we seeing the spirit of Martin Luther animating the so-called "Spirit of Vatican II"?

Let this sink in for a minute...

Hundreds and hundreds of small boats pulled by countless pickups and SUVs from across the South are headed for Houston. Almost all of them driven by men.

They're using their own property, sacrificing their own time, spending their own money, and risking their own lives for one reason: to help total strangers in desperate need.

Most of them are by themselves. Most are dressed like the redneck duck hunters and bass fisherman they are. Many are veterans. Most are wearing well-used gimme-hats, t-shirts, and jeans; and there's a preponderance of camo. Most are probably gun owners, and most probably voted for Trump.

 These are the people the Left loves to hate, the ones Maddow mocks. The ones Maher and Olbermann just *know* they're so much better than.

These are The Quiet Ones. They don't wear masks and tear down statues. They don't, as a rule, march and demonstrate. And most have probably never been in a Whole Foods.

But they'll spend the next several days wading in cold, dirty water; dodging gators and water moccasins and fire ants; eating whatever meager rations are available; and sleeping wherever they can in dirty, damp clothes. Their reward is the tears and the hugs and the smiles from the terrified people they help. They'll deliver one boatload, and then go back for more.

When disaster strikes, it's what men do. Real men. Heroic men. American men. And then they'll knock back a few shots, or a few beers with like-minded men they've never met before, and talk about fish, or ten-point bucks, or the benefits of hollow-point ammo, or their F-150.

And the next time they hear someone talk about "the patriarchy", or "male privilege", they'll snort, turn off the TV and go to bed.

In the meantime, they'll likely be up again before dawn. To do it again. Until the helpless are rescued. And the work's done.

They're unlikely to be reimbursed. There won't be medals. They won't care. They're heroes. And it's what they do.
