The bottom line is that the invited speakers at this conference include various climate alarmists who zealously preach the pretext of man-made climate change to justify their agenda of population control (including birth control and abortion) which must be carried out by global governance in order to save the planet.

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has handed down a landmark judgment under article 14 of the European Convention on Human Rights – prohibition of discrimination – in an application involving public appointments brought by the Grand Orient of Italy.
The decision was taken by six votes to one. Under Article 41 of the Convention, the court held, unanimously, that the finding of a violation constituted sufficient just satisfaction for non-pecuniary damage.
They awarded the Grand Orient of Italy 5,000 euros (£3,400) costs and expenses.
...Regarding whether there was an objective and reasonable justification for such a difference, the court reiterated that it had already held that the prohibition on nominating Freemasons to public office, introduced to ‘reassure’ the public at a time when there had been controversy surrounding their role in the life of the country, had pursued the legitimate aims of protecting national security and preventing disorder. The court considered those requirements remained valid… READ MORE HERE
EUROPEAN COURT OF HUMAN RIGHTS Rules Landmark Victory for FreemasonryBy: Michael J. Matt | Editor
Philadelphia’s Carmelite Monastery of St. Joseph and St. Anne, at 66th Avenue and Old York Road, celebrated the 115th anniversary of its foundation with a Solemn High Mass on the evening of Wednesday, July 26. The Carmel, which was established by nuns from the Boston Carmel and originally located at 18th and Poplar Streets then at 44th and Spruce Streets, has been at its current monastery since 1910, according to the Prioress, who in keeping with the Carmelite charism does not wish to be named. The nuns themselves were an unseen presence at the Mass because of their rules of strict enclosure. They only receive visitors from behind a screen.
The Mass was really a double celebration. The Philadelphia Carmel, which was down to three active members, marked the arrival on July 25 of 10 new members drawn from thriving Carmels in Valparaiso, Nebraska in the Lincoln Diocese, and Elysburg, Pa. in the Diocese of Harrisburg, which was itself established by nuns from Valparaiso
The new arrivals “are all in their 20s and 30s and they are all devout, intelligent and talented, and many were home-schooled,” the Prioress said. “They want an authentic Carmelite vocation. We will have a solemn profession for several of them in January and one is still a novice.
The Mass was celebrated in the monastery’s beautiful chapel which was designed by Maginnis and Walsh, the Boston architects that later designed the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington. The celebrant was the monastery’s new chaplain, Father Scott W. Allen, F.S.S.P. (Fraternal Society of St. Peter). READ MORE HERE
REMNANT COMMENT: One wonders just how much additional evidence needs to be exhibited before mainstream Catholics finally begin to accept the fact that the future of the Catholic Church depends on a complete restoration of her traditional belief, liturgy and practice. As the number of practicing Catholics since 1965 (the close of the Second Vatican Council) continues to plummet to record lows, an unprecedented priest shortage forces church closings by the thousands, and religious vocations are fast becoming a thing of the past—it should be pretty clear even to the most intellectually sluggish among us that something has gone terribly wrong, and that that something has everything to do with the Church’s abandonment of Tradition and subsequent preoccupation with novelty. This becomes even more abundantly obvious when considering the statistical evidence of high numbers of vocations to the priestly and religious life still taking place in traditionalist enclaves, monasteries and seminaries. Could the handwriting on the wall be any more obvious?
The ecclesiastical hippies had their day; their rainbow vestments and felt banners have become moth-eaten and dingy. Traditional Catholicism, on the other hand, is a youth movement—it is the future. The Revolution is entering its dotage. Ad maiorem Dei gloriam.
Philadelphia Carmelites Recalled to LifeBy: Michael J. Matt | Editor
According to CBN.com, the Trump White cabinet is also one of the most Bible-believing in history:
"A spiritual awakening is underway at the White House. Some of the most powerful people in America have been gathering weekly to learn more about God's Word, and this Trump Cabinet Bible study is making history. They've been called the most evangelical Cabinet in history – men and women who don't mince words when it comes to where they stand on God and the Bible."
REMNANT COMMENT: We're not attempting to make a religious comparison study here. Evangelicals are Evangelicals, and their theology is deeply flawed. But this report prompts two questions:
1) As the Catholic Church engages in full retreat from political life, based on ecumenical sensitivity that borders on self-loathing, why is it that our Protestant counterparts are publicly embracing Christ in political life more boldly all the time? Why is it okay for Protestant movers and shakers inside the Beltway to talk about Christ (even outdoors, where somebody might overhear them!) and yet when Pope Francis went to D.C. to address a Joint Session of Congress he never mentioned Christ's Name once, not even in passing?
2) Theological differences aside, could this high concentration of Bible-believing Christians in the White House be one reason why Hell's demons seem to be in full-on attack mode, enlisting the services of leaking and lying traitors from the West Wing to the North Lawn to deep within the bowels of the U.S. Capitol Building to shut these people down? It could be, and whether Trump realizes it or not, he's certainly up against Principalities and Powers, hell-bent on establishing the Kingdom of Antichrist on earth (sometimes called the New World Order).
Interesting times. Too bad the new and improved Catholic Church Of Accompaniment has taken a detour into La La Land.

President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he would not allow transgender individuals to serve in the U.S. military in any capacity. "After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military," Trump wrote in a series of Twitter posts.
"Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail," the Republican president wrote.
The Pentagon ended its ban on openly transgender people serving in the U.S. military last year under Democratic President Barack Obama's administration. It was expected to start allowing transgender people to begin enlisting this year, provided they had been "stable" in their preferred gender for 18 months.
Last month, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis approved a six-month delay in allowing transgender recruits to join the U.S. armed forces.
The delay alarmed transgender advocates. READ MORE HERE
REMNANT COMMENT: Good morning, Catholic Never-Trumpers. Question for you: Are you still convinced that it made absolutely no difference whatsoever where true conservatism and morality are concerned that Mr. Trump beat Mrs. Clinton in the 2016 presidential election?

Little Charlie Gard won't make his first birthday. His time is up, but he'll always be remembered as one of the early martyrs of the new and ruthless religion of militant secularism.
First they taught us how to kill millions of babies in their mothers' wombs. Then they told God to go to Hell. And now they're engaging in outright infanticide. And this they would have us accept as benchmarks of an enlightened society's evolution from the "barbaric" ages of Faith and Holy Christendom.
But who are the real barbarians?
Pray for the Gard family, and may Charlie intercede for us all as we face the prospect of an increasingly Godless world, which is at war with life and addicted to sex, violence and institutionalized narcissism.
Welcome to the Culture of Death.

On the occasion of the 500th year anniversary of the deplorable Lutheran reformation St. Thomas Aquinas Institute for Catholic Apologetics issued a forthright work on the Father of Protestantism and his doctrine.
“Luther’s True Face”, written by a French scholar and clergyman, Fr. Jean-Michel Gleize of St Pius X Society, brings back into the light of day historical facts, too often forgotten by modern Catholics and Protestants alike. What was Luther’s career before 1517? How long was the “shortest seminary formation in history”? Why and how did he form his protestant doctrine? What was the situation in the Church at the time? All these questions and more receive clear answers from an author skilled in Thomist precision and Aristotelian logic.

Just in from Joshua J. McElwee of National Catholic Reporter: Francis puts a new sign on his door: 'No whining'
Pope Francis has placed a new sign on the door of his room in the Vatican's Domus Sanctae Marthae hotel. "No whining" it reads, warning that offenders "are subject to developing a victim complex, resulting in a lowering ... of their capacity to solve problems."
"The penalty is doubled whenever the violation is committed in the presence of children," the sign advises, adding: "To be your best you have to focus on your own potential and not on your limits, so stop whining and act to make your life better." Read More HERE
Chris Jackson's Comment: “The irony never ends. The scary part is it is totally lost on Francis.”

I am happy to let you know that Editora Permanência (a Brazilian traditional Catholic editing house) has published the first book of Michael Davies’ trilogy, "Liturgical Revolution (Cranmer’s Godly Order)" in the Portuguese language (A Reforma Litúrgica de Cranmer), a work I had the honor to translate. The other two books are on their way (already translated and being revised).
I thought you would like to know about it and maybe help us to spread the news now that the book is available at the Permanência website: http://www.editorapermanencia.net/a-reforma-liturgica-de-cranmer.html
Thank you. Our Lord bless you all there at The Remnant.
