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...

“Let us begin from the end, from the joy in the heart of the Father, who says: “Let us rejoice, because my son was dead and is alive again, he was lost and is found”. These were the words with which the father interrupted his youngest son when the latter was confessing his guilt: “I am no longer worthy to be called your son…” But the father’s heart found this remark unbearable and hastened to give the symbols of his son’s dignity back to him: beautiful clothes, a ring, sandals. The father Jesus describes is not an offended or resentful father who says: ‘you’ll pay!’. No, on the contrary, the father embraces him; all the father cares about is that his son is there in front of him, alive and well. The scene of the son’s return is moving: “While he was still far away, his father saw him and was filled with compassion; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.” What does this mean? It means the father would constantly go up onto the terrace and look out onto the road to see if his son was coming home. He waited for him. Despite everything his son had done, he waited for him. How beautiful a father’s tenderness is…” READ ARTICLE HERE
REMNANT COMMENT: Words fail. Surely His Holiness realizes the difference here is that the prodigal son came home. He ceased being 'prodigal' and admits to his sins. The Year of Mercy seems to be sort of glossing over that part. The prodigal son doesn't really need to change all that much, it seems. He doesn't even need to come home. He can still live with his mistress. He can be a public adulterer. It doesn't matter. He gets the fatted calf anyway.
Holy Mother Church as always been a faithful dispenser of God's mercy, long before Francis arrived on the scene. We've all been forgiven in Confession. We've all wept with gratitude over God's great mercy. All that was ever required of us His wayward children was to make some effort to stop sinning and to repent. Demanding Mercy without repentance is a blasphemy against God.
The parable is called 'The Prodigal Son', Your Holiness, not the 'The Liberal Father.'

The Remnant’s team here in the States is bound for France this week. God willing, we will once again be walking with our traditional Catholic brothers from all over the world on the grand Pentecost Pilgrimage of Notre-Dame de Chrétienté to Chartres.
I ask readers to please keep their 70 fellow American pilgrims in their prayers as we once again attempt the 3-day pilgrimage across France. The now 25-year-old U.S. Chapter of Our Lady of Guadalupe will remember all of the readers of The Remnant in their prayers every day on the road to Chartres.

Bishop Schneider at last year's Chartres Pilgrimage,
with foreign chapter leaders (including Michael Matt and John Rao)
To your everlasting credit, but to the Church’s everlasting shame, you alone among the entire Catholic episcopacy have protested publicly and forthrightly against the many statements in Amoris Laetitia (AL), particularly in Chapter 8, which appear to derogate from the negative precepts of the natural law, including those against divorce, adultery and fornication. By the divine will, these precepts, as Your Excellency writes, “are universally valid… oblige each and every individual, always and in every circumstance” and “forbid a given action semper et pro semper, without exception” because they concern “kinds of behaviour which can never, in any situation, be a proper response.”

Thanks to the tireless efforts of our French friends, Yves and Brigitte Guigueno, the worldwide Guardian Angels Chapter will be forming once again during this weekend’s Chartres Pilgrimage in France, and you’re invited to take part.
The “Guardian Angels” Chapter refers to real human beings who can’t be physically present during the three Pentecost days but want to be present spiritually, and nonetheless truly, at the Chartres Pilgrimage.
How is it possible to go on the Chartres pilgrimage in this way?

John Smeaton, co-founder of Voice of the Family and the CEO of the UK Society for the Protection of Unborn Children, issued the request to the Pope in his keynote address at the annual Rome Life Forum.
Smeaton spoke following Bishop Athanasius Schneider, who in his speech decried growing confusion in the Church, and who has previously expressed grave concerns about the exhortation. FULL ARTICLE HERE
REMANNT COMMENT: Pope Francis is either intentionally attempting to undermine the Church's infallible teachings on faith or morals, or he is inadvertently doing so. We see no other option. He's either a very bad man, or an utterly incompetent pope. Take your pick.
Rome Conference Calls for Pope Francis to withdraw Amoris LaetitiaBy: Michael J. Matt | Editor

Archbishop Bruno Forte, Pope Bergoglio’s handpicked Special Secretary for both sessions of the Phony Synod, is a supremely arrogant man. For only supreme arrogance could explain his reported insertion into the midterm report of Phony Synod 2014 (with Francis’s full approval) those infamous statements about “valuing” the “homosexual orientation” and recognizing that “homosexual unions” can provide “precious support in the life of the partners” as they habitually engage in sodomy.
Pope's Forte: Spilling the Beans FeaturedBy: Christopher A. Ferrara
The irony here is rich. The Modernist heroes of Pope Francis crushed the old Catholic model of motherhood, toppled the thrones on which powerful women ruled over Christendom, declared war on true feminity, even forced wives and mothers to dress like their husbands and fathers.
They exiled the mothers from their own homes, sexualized the daughters, made fops of the men, emasculated the priesthood, homosexulized the Mass. And now that everything is destroyed, here they come on their white horses. Did you ever think you’d live to see the day when popes would become champions of Steinem, Fonda and Friedan?
Supremely Politically Correct: Pope Francis' May Prayer IntentionBy: Michael J. Matt | Editor
"As I was uploading the finished video after midnight, my wife called my attention to the calendar hanging in the kitchen. "It's May 2nd. Look at the feast day," she said.
"I could not believe it. 'It's the feast of St. Athanasius!' Coincidence? Maybe. Regardless, I hope you enjoy the video. And please share with your friends and family!"
REMNANT COMMENT: Many thanks, Mr. Sestak. Long live the memory of the great man-- Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre. May we never forget...
Archbishop Lefebvre: The Athanasius of the Church in Our TimeBy: Michael J. Matt | Editor
Despite its weakness and the qualifications that accompanied it, the criticism by Raymond Arroyo on the was a turning point in the relationship between Pope Francis and American neo-Catholics. It is now inescapably clear that a lot of neo-Catholics are on to Pope Francis. And although, like the members of the Bush family, Pope Francis likes to play stupid, he is not. He is very, very smart. So the question arises: Who is Pope Francis and what is he up to?
There are two possibilities. The first is that Pope Francis is an agent of the Judeo-Masonic-Communist-Reptilian conspiracy, and he is craftily advancing the agenda of globalist occultists who worship 30ft owls at resorts in California and hold secret meetings at hotels shaped like spaceship pyramids in the Austrian Alps. Certainly, this is a possibility that cannot be ruled out. Pope Francis does have friends in high places, and he does say a lot of things that UNESCO and Bill Gates say. However, I would like to suggest another possibility: like the classic figure of French drama, Tartuffe, Pope Francis actually believes the stuff he says, writes, and does.

“The performer, whose real name is David Evans, sang four songs on Saturday night for about 200 doctors, researchers and philanthropists who attended a conference at the Vatican on regenerative medicine called Cellular Horizons.
“Backed by a choir of seven Irish teenagers, and wearing his trademark black beanie cap, he played acoustic guitar and sang a cover of Leonard Cohen's ‘If It be Your Will’, and versions of U2 songs ‘Yahweh’, ‘Ordinary Love’ and ‘Walk On.’
“He joked with his audience, telling them he was stunned when asked to play in the chapel, which was painted by Renaissance master Michelangelo in the 16th century. He then thanked Pope Francis and other Vatican officials ‘for allowing us to use the most beautiful parish hall in the world’.
The Edge dedicated his performance of ‘Walk On,’ written in 2000 for Myanmar democracy advocate Aung San Suu Kyi when she was under house arrest, to Pope Francis, who he described as "the people's pope. ‘He's doing an amazing job and long may he continue,’ he added.” READ MORE HERE
REMNANT COMMENT: And of course, this was the same event at which pro-abort ‘Catholic’ VP Joe Biden was also on hand. Old Uncle Joe didn’t sing for anyone but did deliver a talk at the same conference, just before managing to land a private meeting with Pope Francis.
Bit of irony here, of course, that since 1492 the Sistine Chapel was the sacred place where the College of Cardinals gathered to elect a new pope—the rock of St. Peter. History will now record that under the reign of Francis the Great, that same chapel—famous for its fresco of the Second Coming of Christ and images of the damned being sent to hell and tortured by demons—became a venue for rock stars (...seems strangely fitting somehow).
Anyway, remember the bit about Arian heretics back in the fourth century taking over the Catholic buildings while a small remnant kept the old Faith? Well, is it just me or does it seem that Pope Francis the Great is bound and determined to demonstrate that the same thing is happening today. Every time I turn around there seems to be another pro-abort, liberal, population-control whacko being paraded through the halls of the most important buildings of old Christendom. It's almost as if Francis the Great is saying: "I will do whatever I please with your buildings!"
So where's our St. Athanasius?
