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:

Abortionist, Emma “La Bicicletta” Bonino, among Italy’s “greats” ... Pope Francis

In 2010, after I had lived in Italy about two years and had begun to understand the byzantine complexities of this country’s politics, Emma Bonino decided to run for the office of governor of the region of Lazio. Once I found out what kind of person she was, I was seized with the urge to buy a crate of spray paint and go around Rome writing, “10,000 bambini assassinati non abbastanza per Emma ‘la Bicicletta’ Bonino,” on all her posters. “10,000 murdered babies not enough for Emma ‘the bicycle’ Bonino.” I thought of it every time I got off the train at St. Peter’s station in Rome where her face was plastered on nearly every surface. Somehow, I was disuaded from this course of action, and now I wish I had done it. Instead I wrote a few articles about her, and what she stood for, by way of an introduction to English speaking pro-life readers.

The Pope and the Baby Killer Featured

Written by
This just in from, "In this section, we will respond to Sedevacantists' attempted refutations of our book and articles, including those published by Fr. Anthony Cekada and his disciple Mario Derksen (who runs the Sedevacantist website NovusOrdoWatch). In addition to defending the book, this section will also include articles exposing the errors of Sedevacantism as well as other material related to Sedevacantism in general. READ FULL STORE HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: Would that it were so easy to simply dismiss Francis the Great as a false pope. 

If you’ll forgive a personal aside. Many of our sedevacantist friends seem to be inordinately motivated by what comes off as an almost insatiable desire to be vindicated. It all seems terribly personal with many of these men, who, by the way, berate us on a daily basis for being cowards, ignoramuses, and charlatans for not seeing things their way.

Given what's happening to the Church we all love, this seems odd to me. I mean, if I were a sedevacantist (and I'm not), I would read The Remnant, with its 24/7 exposé of the Modernist Pope Francis, and I'd say: "Well, hey, at least those poor slobs over at The Remnant are trying to do something to expose the threat to souls as best they know how. Sure, Francis is not the pope, we all know that, but they don't.  And at least the benighted Remnant is trying to undermine our common enemy."

Is that what we see? Not on your life! Rather, we get a lot of this:  "Look at those malicious sycophants over at The Remnant. They know full well that Francis is not the Pope, but in order to sell more newspapers they keep their people in the dark. They're afraid of us and of the truth. They know we're right, as we always have been—right from the start. But they’re afraid to admit it. Blah, blah, blah."

Forgive me, but such belligerent judgmentalism makes it difficult to take these men too terribly seriously. They will not allow for the prevailing diabolical disorientation to be the root cause of the R&R Remnant gang getting everything so terribly wrong. No! They absolutely KNOW that we are maliciously covering up the truth.

How do they know this, do you suppose.  And since when do Catholics publicly ascribe the very worst motives to those with whom they disagree?

Here's what I actually believe with all my heart and with God as my witness: Francis is the Pope. The New Mass is technically valid. Vatican II is a legitimate Council of the Church, which the Church will one day recall. As I see it, Hell wouldn’t have it any other way.  After all, an invalid Mass does not provide ample opportunity for sacrilege and callous disregard of Christ in the Eucharist as does a technically valid New Mass with its bulldozed high altar and communion rail, its sacrificial nature erased, its Communion in the hand, its Mass facing the people, its table, etc. 

The problem with Vatican II is precisely that it was a validly-convened council whose documents are laced with Luciferian ambiguity. If it were merely a false or invalid Council, it would never have achieved the high degree of damage for which it is responsible all over the world. (Remember, Leo XIII heard Jesus Himself grant the Devil one hundred years to try to destroy—not replace! —His Church.)

And, let's face it, a false pope is not nearly as effective in undermining the faith as is a Modernist pope. Hell doesn’t want to organize a Halloween party inside the Vatican — Hell wants to control the real thing, and stick that in God’s face.

The easy way out of all of this is to solemnly declare from the comfort of our easy chairs that Vatican II was false, the New Mass is invalid, and Pope Francis is not the pope. On all three counts, would that it were so. Alas, it is not, and that IS the unprecedented crisis in the Church today.  

We have said it before and we’ll say it again: The Mystical Body of Christ is undergoing its passion. That public passion—not unlike the first one—is cause for great scandal. They have taken His Mystical Body into custody; they’re scourging it, crowning it with thorns, and preparing to crucify it.

But to the extent that we have the courage and the faith and the hope and the grace to stay with Him--we will and we must. We must try not to run away— for all the 'right reasons'. This is our Church, our mother, and we must not content ourselves to abandon her to her enemies. As soldiers of Christ we will fight to try an rescue her wherever and whenever we possibly can but, for the most part, during this age of great apostasy, we can do little more than stay, watch and pray with Him Whom they seek to destroy.

May God grant us the strength and the fortitude to remain at the foot of His Cross.  

St. Mary Magdalene, Pray for Us.

Italy's Parliament made history on Thursday by passing its controversial gay-rights bill that's been pending in the senate for months. Thereby Italy now joins the other western European countries in officially recognizing gay-unions.

Prime Minister Matteo Renzi is elated over the victory, despite squawks from certain LGBT activists that the passage didn't include legislation permitting gay-adoption. It appears the gay-adoption clause was deliberately denied for the moment to quell conservative opposition and ensure that the bill got passed. Gay-rights activists no doubt will go to town now to get an amendment passed to permit gay-adoption as well, but the door has been swung open for them. Gay-unions are now recognized in Italy. 

I have had this piece in the back of my mind for some time, and have even run the title and general gist of it past a few people, all of whose eyes sparkled like the transporter beam of the Enterprise-A upon hearing it. I am pleased to publish it here, as my first, of hopefully many columns (depending on the litigation and settlement deal this piece generates) for The Remnant.

Long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away, I lived in a large, shared house built in the 1920s with a male friend.  I had the master bedroom suite, and thus my own private bathroom, and everything was completely on the up-and-up.  Fear not, gentle readers.  I shall not be scandalizing you with tales of ribaldry – no “accompanying body-to-body” going on, to use one of FrancisChurch’s creepier turns of phrase.  It was an excellent use of the property, and very frugal and affordable.  And, yes, I certainly preferred to live with males, from both the security as well as a domestic tranquility standpoint.  

This just in "Lost in the Trump-Pope rap battle over who’s a real Christian was another newsmaking nugget from Pope Francis’ plane trip back to Rome — about the Zika virus and contraception.In an answer to a reporter’s question aboard Shepherd One from Mexico, Francis indicated Catholic women could use contraception if they were in danger of contracting the virus. Unlike abortion, the pope said, “avoiding pregnancy is not an absolute evil.”

"In supporting his case, the pope made a historical reference to one of his predecessors and the rape of nuns in 1960s Belgian Congo that left some Catholic theologians and historians scratching their heads.

"Francis was speaking off the cuff, but he may have gotten his Catholic history wrong...

"Cardinal Giovanni Montini, the future Paul VI — who, in 1968, wrote Humanae Vitae, the papal document that articulates the modern Catholic position banning contraception in normal circumstances — actually visited the Congo in 1962. But he didn’t write or say anything then, or as pope, about the issue of nuns and contraception..." READ FULL STORY HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: As a matter of routine, Francis seems to just sort of make things up about Scripture as he goes along (e.g. the miracle of the loaves and fishes was merely that people were super, super generous with their food that day), so should it be particularly surprising that he might sort of make stuff up about history, too?

This just in from the AP's Nicole Winfield: ABOARD THE PAPAL PLANE (AP) — Pope Francis has suggested that women threatened with the Zika virus could use artificial contraception, saying there's a clear moral difference between aborting a fetus and preventing a pregnancy.

Francis was asked Wednesday en route home from Mexico if abortion or birth control could be considered a "lesser evil," when confronting the Zika crisis in Brazil, where some babies have been born with abnormally small heads to Zika-infected mothers. READ REPORT HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: So the intrinsically evil is now the lesser of two evils? Is the pope actually suggesting that having a baby with birth defects is evil?

Hey, who are we to judge?

Now does it concern the neo-Catholics?!  Jimmy? Voris? Karl? You guys good with this?  Nothing to see here?

This just in from LifeSiteNews – The Republican club at Christendom College, Virginia's renowned orthodox Catholic college, has left the national and state College Republicans over a debate surrounding sexual orientation.

On February 1, the Christendom College Republicans announced they had withdrawn from the College Republican National Committee (CRNC) and the College Republican Federation of Virginia (CRFV) after the CRFV voted overwhelmingly to add sexual orientation as a protected class to the chapter's constitution.

REMNANT COMMENT: Go Crusaders!  And it's not just because I'm an alumnus, either. This school is doing a lot of things right. They accept no state aid, their faculty and student body are 100% Catholic, they’re proud to be Catholic first, and now this. Plus they're adding more TLMs, too.  (Add one more on Sunday mornings and, overnight, you'll become the premier Catholic college in the world.)

Christendom represents the future of Catholic higher education. Move over, Notre Dame.  A real Catholic school, committed to restoring all things in Christ, is about to blow by you like you're sitting up on jacks!

I'm told that Super Dave Armstrong is attacking The Remnant over at Patheos. Having never read anything written by this man in the past, I see no point in starting now. As I see it, since nobody else reads Super Dave he surely won't mind if we dont' either.

I'd just like to say that, even though he's now attacking us with his random word generator, I still think Super Dave was pretty funny back in the day.

In fact, long live Super Dave!  And don't go changin', Dave, to try to please us. We love you just the way you were.

Pope Francis invokes themes of liberation theology during Mexican visit

This just in from Catholic World Report: "Pope Francis’ visit to Mexico, which began on February 12, has been received with all of the fanfare expected for a papal visit from one of the most Catholic nations in the world. Just as Mexicans warmly welcomed John  Paul II and Benedict XVI, so they are also giving a very enthusiastic  reception to the current pontiff, who is making a point of focusing on  the country’s suffering lower classes. However, in his rhetorical  enthusiasm for the poor and downtrodden, the pope is taking a decidedly  different tone from that of his predecessors, one that appears to show  sympathy for the region’s controversial tradition of liberation  theology, as well as other ideologically-charged political causes....

On the very day he took possession of the Chair of Peter, Pope Benedict XVI declared his intention to subsume his personal ideas and predilections to the office of the Vicar of Christ:

The Pope is not an absolute monarch whose thoughts and desires are law. On the contrary: the Pope's ministry is a guarantee of obedience to Christ and to his Word. He must not proclaim his own ideas, but rather constantly bind himself and the Church to obedience to God's Word, in the face of every attempt to adapt it or water it down, and every form of opportunism….
