Nativity for dec 31

Michael J. Matt
Merry Christmas from The Remnant to the remnant

Christmas reminds us of what we must do to find our way through the present darkness—continue to follow the star, continue to believe in the Child King of Bethlehem, the lumen Christi, Saviour of the whole World. In that regard, nothing has changed save, perhaps, for an increase in the frantic bleating of hopelessly lost sheep…To Read, SUBSCRIBE

The Remnant’s Very First Christmas, 1967

Dad and baby love that telephoneFounder of The Remnant, Mr. Walter Matt, and his beloved daughter, Cathy

"Anyone imagining, in this age of cosmic war between Christ and Satan that he or she can remain neutral—a privileged non-combatant so to speak—had better think again about it. The war between Christ and Anti-Christ is a total war, a war embracing the TOTALITY OF ALL PEOPLE."  - Walter Matt, 1967....To Read the Full Story SUBSCRIBE

Welcome To Us, Our Lord Christ!

Let no one cast a wet blanket upon the joyful welcoming of the Christ Child by the multitude: a pox upon those who would do so! Pray for those lost and envious souls who mutter "humbug" to themselves as they refuse to join in the welcoming and celebration, but take no heed of their secular nonsense…Read this article right now HERE 


Remnant Interview with the Author of Heroism and Genius
 How Catholic Priests Helped Build--and Can Help Rebuild--Western Civilization

Cover Heroism and Genius Slattery

Michael J. Matt to Father Slattery, author of "Herorism and Genius: How Catholic Priests Helped Build--and Can Help Rebuild--Western Civilization": "I think our readers would be interested, Father, in just a brief word about your own vocation. At a time when the Catholic priesthood is suffering perhaps the greatest trial in the history of the Church, how is that a young man is nevertheless able to see past all that and, not only answer the call himself, but also write an entire book in praise of the glorious legacy of the Catholic priesthood?"...To Read the Full Interview, SUBSCRIBE


Susan Claire Potts 
A Song of Christmas 

A gentle breeze touched her cheek like a kiss. She raised her face. As tears of joy streamed from her eyes, music filled her heart and burst from her lips. Alone in the classroom, holding the priceless Missal, she sang the precious song of the birth of her Savior: O Bambino, Mio Divino, O my Divine Baby, O, Dio beato, O Blessed God. And then she heard in the depths of her soul, a whisper, Welcome home, beloved…To Read the Full Story, SUBSCRIBE

Remnant TV Tackles Sexual Harassment

"Remnant TV's recent video on sexual harassment is absolutely excellent. It is hard to believe, though, that even some Remnant readers wrote negative comments, saying that you are blaming women, which is a liberal slogan. Perhaps they should read a poem from a hundred years ago, which every schoolboy knew, Kipling’s The Female of the Species. They also knew his poem, If, which taught them how to be men." - Andrew Senior....To Read the Full Story SUBSCRIBE

St. Therese member of Holy Face devotionSt. Therese loved this devotion

This coming May, Remnant Tours will travel through France after the Pentecost Pilgrimage to Chartres, and will wrap up with two nights in Lisbon. En route, the pilgrims will visit Tours, France, which is the birthplace of the well-known Catholic devotion to the Holy Face of Jesus. St. Therese of Lisieux and her family registered as members of the Archconfraternity of Reparation to the Holy Face at Tours France and St. Therese herself was so devoted to this that she added the title to her name at the time she took the habit. Here's the story of the Holy Face devotion and the Carmelite nun who received the message...To Read the Full Story, SUBSCRIBE

...The Last Word

Is The Beast Slouching Towards Bethlehem?

What irony that whereas Saint Francis went to great lengths to obtain permission of the pope of his time to display the Nativity scene, lest he be accused of novelty, the pope who took the name of this Saint clearly revels in novelty; in this case with the novel inclusion of a homoerotic nude at the Nativity... To Read the Full Story SUBSCRIBE
