This Week’s Featured Article…

Christopher A. Ferrara In Defense of Pope Francis

With the major exception of his “mercy offensive”, nothing Francis says or does is as unprecedented as it might appear. What is unprecedented is the nuance-free, shockingly blunt manner in which Francis pursues a relentless progressivism quite in line with the disastrous “new orientation” of the Church since Vatican II and the course already set by his two immediate predecessors.


Michael J. Matt SSPX Holds Its Ground

Until Pope Francis begins to act like a Catholic, we pray to God that the SSPX will continue to resist him with every means at their disposal, and to make it very clear to the Holy Father that the SSPX will come back to “full communion” with the Vatican just as soon as he returns to full communion with the Church.

Michael J. Matt From the Editor’s Desk…

Lost in the Fifties, Too. The Remnant kicks off a new series of articles written back in the ‘50s by Remnant founder, Walter L. Matt. Was everything all peace and harmony, daffodils and happy thoughts? Yeah, right! Vatican II was merely the coming out party.

Lives of the Saints  St. Olga of Kiev

The world’s most terrifying and mighty princess buried people alive and burned down cities in mad fits of revenge. She is also a canonized saint of both Roman and Orthodox Churches!


This week, it’s the Orthodox. Once and for all, what do they believe, who’s in charge, and how are they similar to Catholics?
