RORATE CÆLI: For the Record: Franciscan Friars & Sisters of the Immaculate status update — Bergoglio’s destruction nearly complete

For so many years now we have both broke and chronicled the news of Pope Bergoglio’s destruction of the Franciscans of the Immaculate — both the Friars (FFI) and the Sisters (FSI). So much has happened, often in the shadows, and has gone unreported. Below are simple bullet points of what we’ve been told recently. They come from multiple sources both inside and outside the order. But all must be recorded for history, so we Continue Reading →

Fr. Z’s Blog | VIDEO @Michael_Voris makes an appeal.

 ACTION ITEM! Posted on 5 December 2017 by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf   In the last couple of years I’ve written more than once about the Church’s attribute of indefectibility.  In a nutshell, the Church’s members may err or fail, but the Church cannot.   Which leads me to advance a video that Michael Voris made.   He makes a good appeal. Have a listen.   I think that Michael struck the right tone here.  We are in seriously Continue Reading →

Eccles is saved: Has the Second Coming already happened?

Today’s Gospel explained that nobody knows when to expect Christ’s Second Coming. The newly-discovered Book of the Prophet Iveriah presents one particular theory: What if the Second Coming has already taken place? … and he will return to judge and insult the quick and the dead…   Only a fragment of the prophecy survives, but what there is, is fairly definite.   1. And when the Saviour returns he will appear in the humble town Continue Reading →

BREAKING: POPE DECLARES TROUBLING INTERPRETATION OF AL ‘AUTHENTIC MAGISTERIUM’ | Church Militant

by Church Militant  •  ChurchMilitant.com  •  December 2, 2017 A direct contradiction of Canon 915 Church Militant is confirming that Pope Francis has officially approved the interpretation of Amoris Laetitia that opens Holy Communion to the divorced and civilly remarried in some instances, directly contradicting Canon 915 of the Code of Canon Law, arguably making this interpretation binding on the consciences of the faithful. In a Papal Rescript granted on June 5, 2017 ex Audientia Continue Reading →

Vox Cantoris: Who was and is behind the Dictator who is Pope?

Saturday, 2 December 2017   There is anticipation about the ebook that is taking Italy by storm, Il Papa Dittatore, to be published in English on Monday through Kindle. OnePeterFive has an advance copy and excerpts.

Pascal and the Jesuits | The Catholic Thing

 David Carlin FRIDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2017   It seems to me (I’m hardly alone) that many clerical leaders (priests and bishops) are relatively “soft” on matters related to sexual sin – fornication, unmarried cohabitation, abortion, and homosexuality. It’s not that they approve of these things; they just don’t go out of their way to condemn them. If someone were challenged to write in defense of this clerical “softness,” I think the argument would go like Continue Reading →

Chris Ferrara Fires Back at Desperate Estalishment Catholics on Fatima | The Stumbling Block

30Nov 2017 by fgwalkers@att.net In a recent interview, establishment Catholics make their latest in a long line of dishonest, ham-fisted, and feeble attempts, which have originated from the Vatican on down, to obscure and withhold key truths about the Third Secret of Fatima. During John Paul II’s reign, an apparently truncated, dubious version of the Third Secret was released which has aroused immediate suspicion and controversy ever since.  Letters and communications from the late visionary, Continue Reading →

‘Perhaps we have arrived at the End Times’: an interview with Cardinal Burke | CatholicHerald.co.uk

Cardinal Raymond Burke talks division, the End Times and what he would do if elected Pope Cardinal Raymond Burke has been much in the news this past year. In November 2016, he and three other cardinals presented Pope Francis with the famous dubia – five questions regarding Francis’s apostolic exhortation on the family, Amoris Laetitia. Then the American cardinal became embroiled in a power struggle within the Order of Malta, of which he is patron. Continue Reading →

  These are the first in what will hopefully be a series of short items for the armchair philosophers and theologians in the crowd. This feature already has its own page which is found under the “RELIGION” heading in the uppermost menu.

Renewal in secular cultures: The need to distinguish between sheep and goats

By Dr. Jeff Mirus | Nov 28, 2017 Have you ever wondered why it is so hard to effect a widely effective renewal movement within the Church in our time? After all, individual Catholics too numerous to count have made this their top priority since the mid-1960s. The Church herself, in the whole process of calling, holding and implementing the Second Vatican Council, has committed herself again and again to the same largely thankless effort Continue Reading →
