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...

Under the rubric of Sustainable Development Goals, the United Nations, in conjunction with the Obama Administration, has co-opted the Vatican to embrace a global environmental agenda which at its core promotes actions which are antithetical to Catholic moral teaching
Powerful winds are blowing through St. Peter’s Square, setting up the perfect storm. Indeed, the climate is drastically changing in Vatican City as the world awaits Pope Francis’ environment encyclical. Behind the scenes of St. Peter’s, forces are at play to create a very problematic document influenced, and partly written, by rabid opponents of Catholic moral teaching..
At the conclusion of the conference, world leaders issued a statement in which they declared that decisive action to deal with climate change is “a moral and religious imperative for humanity”.
“You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end; but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the reign of Pius XI. When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign given you by God that He is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father.” ~The Queen of Heaven to Lucia dos Santos, July 13, 1917.
“Your Excellency is not unaware that a few years ago God manifested that sign, which astronomers chose to call an aurora borealis. I do not know, but it seems to me that if they examine the form in which it appeared it could not possibly have been an aurora borealis. Be that as it may, God made use of this to make me understand that His justice was about to strike the guilty nations.” (Emphasis added) ~ Sister Lucia dos Santos, Third Memoir to her Bishop written on August 31, 1941.
Father Paul Nicholson—the Canadian 'missionary priest of the New Evangelization'—has done a lot of unpriestly things, but this tops the list and of course does precisely nothing to minimize the perverse, predatory image of the modern Catholic priest in the eyes of so many scandalized Catholics. One priest savaging another, just moments after his sudden death? Who behaves this way!
This is from Father Paul’s Facebook page yesterday, including the link to a little hissy fit video from a year ago, in which Father Paul falsely accused Father Gruner of being a suspended priest (a charge which was publicly refuted years ago). Not surprisingly, the consummate Catholic gentleman priest, Father Gruner, never even responded to Father Nicholson's slander.
But just yesterday the boorish Father Paul wrote the following and then reposted the link to his Gruner-bashing video, just hours after Father Gruner had died suddenly of heart failure. This morning Father Paul's been adding still more links to Gruner-bashing articles. This guy will apparently stoop to anything--even savaging a dead fellow priest--in an attempt to bolster his sagging numbers on the Internet.
Clearly, this priest is a joke!
We have just heard from our good friend, John Vennari of Catholic Family News, that the great Father Nicholas Gruner died suddenly today of apparent heart failure. We are shocked and saddened beyond words, and I ask the readers of The Remnant to please storm heaven with prayers for the repose of the soul of this great crusader for our Lady.
I've often wondered how many people the world over would still know anything about the messages of Our Lady of Fatima in our day were it not for the tireless work of her most valiant defender, Father Gruner--her loyal priest who kept her message, warning and promises alive for the benefit of millions of souls so desperately in need of Our Lady's intercession.
Father Gruner has worked himself into an early grave in her name, and we will never forget the good and holy Fatima Priest it was our honor to call friend for so many years.
May Our Lady of Fatima intercede now for Father Gruner. May he rest in peace.

April 27, 2015, ROME, ITALY: The Heartland Institute sought my consultation, as an attorney, who has worked on international human trafficking cases and in the field of child exploitation for 30 years, most recently with Oprah Winfrey in South Africa. I am deeply troubled by the Statement issued by the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences regarding the upcoming Papal environmental conference on Tuesday, April 28, 2015.
The Pontifical Academy posits that the goal of the conference is:

"Sadly, the pope is aligning himself with a U.N. agenda that will limit development for billions of the world's desperately poor residents," says Marc Morano, former communications director for the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee and founder of the watchdog website Climate Depot.

REMNANT COMMENT: The pope is now aligning himself with the nutjobs at the UN. So, how long is it going to take our neo-Catholic brothers to realize that this pope is a disaster?
"Home schooling in the United States is the necessary concomitant of a culture in which the Church is being opposed on every level of her existence and, as a consequence, given the widespread secularization in our country, home schooling is not only valuable or useful but it is absolutely necessary for the survival of the Catholic church in our country." - Father John Hardon
A new film production company demonstrates yet another aspect of the massive cultural influence of the homeschool movement. "In a world at war with the family, there is nothing more pro-family than the Catholic homeschool." - Michael J. Matt
There is an amusing investing term called a ‘dead cat bounce.’ It follows from the idea that "even a dead cat will bounce if it falls from a great height." A dead cat bounce refers to a temporary recovery from a prolonged decline followed by a continuation of the downtrend. The dead cat bounce is a sucker’s bet. Suckers, thinking that the worst is over and that things have reached bottom, start buying up stock. In reality, the temporary rally is caused by investors shorting the stock purchasing the worthless stock to cover long-term bets against the company creating short-term buying pressure.
In short, the suckers buy up worthless stock thinking the worst is over and the stock is on the uptrend despite the fact that all the fundamental measures should tell them otherwise.
I am a sucker who got fooled by the dead cat bounce.
