Teilhard de Chardin: The Vatican II Architect You Need to Know

  H. Reed Armstrong @ 1Peter5 In the middle of the fourth century, Saint Jerome remarked that the world “awoke with a groan to find itself Arian.” Arianism divided the Church and Empire of the fourth and fifth centuries and beyond by claiming that the Divine Logos, Jesus Christ, was not of the same substance (homoousios) as the Father and not co-eternal with the Father as defined at the Council of Nicea (325 A.D.).

Tears of Faith and Love: founded in 1988, FSSP enters 30th year

By New Catholic Wednesday, October 18, 2017 Come sorrowing tears, the offspring of my grief, Scant not your parent of a needful aid; In you I rest the hope of wish’d relief, By you my sinful debts must be defray’d: Your power prevails, your sacrifice is grateful, By love obtaining life to men most hateful. … If love, if loss, if fault, if spotted fame, If danger, death, if wrath, or wreck of weal, Entitle Continue Reading →

The Rosary After 800 Years: Why Our Lady’s Apparition to St. Dominic Still Matters

Written by Michael Matt | Editor, The Remnant “Moreover, we may well believe that the Queen of Heaven herself has granted an especial efficacy to this mode of supplication, for it was by her command and counsel that the devotion was begun and spread abroad by the holy Patriarch Dominic.” – Pope Leo XIII, (Octobri Mense Encyclical on the Rosary, 1891) – Editor’s Note by Michael J. Matt: The following was published in The Remnant Continue Reading →

The Standard of the Cross

FATHER GEORGE RUTLER If revisionists would burlesque the past and mute the voice of reason, they should first recognize that the value of life is secured best by the standard of the Cross and not the Crescent. The current mania for tearing down statues and stifling free speech by cultural ingénues ignorant of history and logic, has reached a stellar absurdity in demands to censure “The Star Spangled Banner” on lame claims that it is Continue Reading →

The Revolution, George Soros, and the Assault on the West ~ The Remnant

Friday, September 22, 2017 by  Dr. Boyd D. Cathey Sometimes I think back four decades to my college years. Between grad schools, I served as assistant to conservative writer and philosopher Russell Kirk in Mecosta, Michigan. Being a Southern boy, the one significant thing I recall about the climate up there was that we had snow on the ground—and lots of it—from around Thanksgiving all the way until April. So, other than my secretarial duties Continue Reading →

Pius XII Warns of “a Church which Weakens the Law of God”   In this time of new persecutions against Christians by Islamicists, secularists, and sexual anarchists, and of a pope who so openly emboldens and gives comfort to these and other enemies of Holy Mother Church, while shirking his duty to confirm his brethren in the faith, we publish in English translation (below) the prophetic words of the Continue Reading →

Parolin and the Church of Traitors – What’s Up With Francis-Church?

AUG 30, 2016 by HILARY WHITE According to Chris Ferrara, Francis’ Prime Minister, Pietro Parolin (another formerly “conservative” weathervane,) has sold out the Catholic Church in China to the communist regime that wants them dead. Wait, that sentence wasn’t clear. I meant, Parolin has sold out the persecuted Catholics in China to the Chinese government, which is the particular communist regime that wants them dead to which I was referring. These days one has to Continue Reading →

The Remnant Newspaper – On the “Rite of Saint Peter”–The Glorious Roman Rite (most beautiful thing this side of heaven)

Written by  Robert Higdon INTRODUCTION There were 54 Rites of Mass composed by the apostles according to the language and custom of the countries they evangelized. In this essay all comments are centered on the Roman Rite. Why select the Roman Rite to comment on, if it is just one among many? Is it because it is said in Latin? No, in fact, the original language that it was written in was Syro-Chaldaic, composed by Continue Reading →

Christians suffered unspeakably in the Soviet Union. It is a hard subject to read about – CatholicHerald.co.uk

by Francis Phillips posted Thursday, 14 Jul 2016 The roll-call of heroes and saints shows just how much courage you needed to live out your faith I have been reading, with difficulty, Jonathan Luxmoore’s first volume of The God of the Gulag: Martyrs in an Age of Revolution (Gracewing, £20). I say “with difficulty” because it is a long catalogue of the appalling sufferings endured by Christians who happened to be caught up in the Continue Reading →
