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...

Some of you are old enough to remember, and the rest of you are young enough to google (but I am not recommending it, due to a number of expletives here deleted for your convenience) the famous clip from the ‘70s cult flick, Wizards:
They’ve killed Fritz! They’ve killed Fritz!
Those lousy stinking yellow fairies!
Those horrible atrocity filled vermin!
Those despicable animal warmongers!
They’ve killed Fritz!

In this episode of The Remnant Forum, Michael Matt and Christopher Ferrara break out the Catholic microscope and take a careful look at the controversial few paragraphs and footnotes of the Pope’s apostolic exhortation, Amoris Laetitia. Is Cardinal Raymond Burke a troublemaker? Is Francis merely attempting to be pastoral? Merciful? At the heart of all of this are the words of Jesus Christ which forbid adultery WITH NO EXCEPTIONS. Trouble is, Francis wants exceptions.
This from a Cruxnow.com article by canon lawyer Ed Peters, entitled: Conscience can’t be the final arbiter on who gets Communion:
Amoris, never mentioning Canons 915 or 916, seems to think that some process of pastoral “discernment” or “accompaniment” can lead divorced-and-remarried Catholics, even those not committed to a continent relationship as befits all non-married persons, to the point where, having satisfied themselves that they are not sinning, may approach for holy Communion, and the minister, irrespective of the communicant’s objective public status, must distribute it to them.
In other words, Canon 915, the central, historically uncontested, and canonically unambiguous norm controlling ministerial decisions to distribute holy Communion in such cases, is simply ignored.
It is the pervasive and steadfast refusal of nearly all “Amoris supporters” (I dislike the term, but it saves time) to face squarely the ancient tradition behind, and the unambiguous interpretation of, Canon 915 that dooms virtually all defenses of Amoris so far to irrelevance at best and to pastoral and even doctrinal disasters at worst. One cannot coherently discuss reception of holy Communion by divorced-and-remarried Catholics while ignoring the plain text of Canon 915. READ MORE HERE
REMNANT COMMENT: There is no coherent, valid argument being raised in defense of AL’s fatal flaw—that in some cases, marriage is dissoluble and/or public adultery and/or bigamy can be blessed by the Church. What we have here are lukewarm Catholics who essentially don't give a damn about Christ's teaching and the infallible teachings of the Church when said teachings conflict with their own personal opinion on the way things ought to be. Nothing is 'carved in stone,' in other words, and everything must evolve--even Christ.
In lieu of an actual argument, the defenders of Amoris simply WILL this change to the Church's teaching on the indissolubility of marriage to the rejection of the words of Jesus Christ. Why? Because it makes life so much easier when we all surrender to the world, the flesh and the devil. And, besides, to oppose it would be to become fully Catholic, a transition for which most of them are thoroughly ill-prepared. But make no mistake: They are not missing Cardinal's Burke's point when it comes to the fundamental flaw in Amoris Laetitia... they're simply ignoring it.
The Catholic Church today is teeming with de facto Protestants for whom the Code of Canon Law, the catechisms of the Catholic Church, the infallible teachings of the Church, doctrine, dogma and the reiteration of the constant and magisterial teachings of Popes from Peter to Benedict--mean nothing or can evolve or MUST evolve over time...and, at any rate, are no longer applicable to the modern world and its set of 'sophisticated' modern problems -- problems which even Christ Himself didn't anticipate when He said that "any man who puts away his wife and marries another commits adultery." His is a 'rigidity' the neo-Catholics are no longer prepared to accept.
The Church, they tell us, failed miserably in the mercy department for 2,013 years, and it is for this reason that Christ the Judgmental must bow to Francis the Merciful. This is nothing short of blasphemy, of course, and yet it is this pernicious non serviam that they actually trot out as an 'argument' in defense of Amoris Laetitia.
The very fact that so many Catholics today refuse to get exercised about the fundamental Moral Order- and Sacraments-destroying nature of AL is in and of itself proof that they've lost the faith (if they ever had it) and that the Church today is suffering from an unprecedented crisis of belief.
Kudos to the magnificent exceptions, such as Mr. Peters, for having the courage to defend the Truth of Jesus Christ Our King in that arena of spiritual and moral chaos that is the modern "Catholic Christian Community".
MJM: I want to address the 900-pound gorilla in the room—the controversy surrounding Pope Francis’s post-Synodal exhortation, Amoris Laetitia (AL). The document, especially Paragraph 305, has been described by various priests and theologians, you know on EWTN and elsewhere, as “dangerous,” “very disturbing,” “very problematic,” “a big mistake,” “a direct contradiction of Pope John Paul's Familiaris Consortio,” and so forth. First of all, Your Eminence, how authoritative is AL, and are we talking merely about scandal here, or do these problematic paragraphs savor of heresy?
Bishop Athanasius Schneider, a collaborator with Cardinal Burke and an auxiliary bishop of Astana, Kazakhstan, gave a lecture on “Mary, conqueror of all heresies”, in which he warned that Freemasonry is an “instrument of Satan”. Bishop Schneider made this observation in the context of 2017 being the 300th anniversary of the foundation of Freemasonry with the establishment of the first Grand Lodge in London. READ MORE here.
So, what is Freemasonry? Really, what's it all about?
Why have more popes condemned Freemasonry than any other organization in history?

“With Christianity under fire in all quarters today, and an anti-Christian, anti-life and anti-family political order rising from the ashes of old Christendom, it is hardly difficult to observe the final stages of the crucifixion of the Mystical Body of Christ being brought on through the aegis of secret societies condemned by pope after pope for nearly 300 years. M. de Lassus’s book tears the mask off of Freemasonry to reveal the ugly visage of militant Christophobia.” ...Michael J. Matt

What is neo-Catholicism? What is the New Mass? Why are Jimmy Fallon, Bill Murray, Sting and Bianca Jagger readily admitting that which the Neo-Catholics insist on denying: The Catholic Church is in all out revolution that kicked into high gear at the Second Vatican Council.

When Saul Met Paul
Was it Cromwell that said, “It is time to investigate history and learn what is really at stake at this moment in time.” That being said, it is time to investigate relevant secular history and learn what is really at stake at this moment in time.
You have to wonder what impact Saul David Alinsky had on Pope Paul VI, on the Second Vatican Council, and on contemporary modernist Catholicism – especially in the United States of America.
On the other hand, dire predictions of calamity and apocalyptic happenings seemed to ring in every New Year I can remember. On New Year’s Eve 1972, for example—the so-called “Jacinta’s year”—we were told to brace for the dreaded Three Days of Darkness. Board up your windows, keep plenty of blessed candles handy, and, whatever you do, don’t look at the demon parade going on outside. I guess we’re still waiting for those Three Days of Darkness… unless, of course, they’re already here. It’s no simple task these days to tell the difference between demons on parade and public high-schoolers on holiday, God help them all.
