New Appeal From Fr. Weinandy To the Pope: With This False Mercy the Church Is Destroyed

New Appeal From Fr. Weinandy To the Pope: With This False Mercy the Church Is Destroyed

Sandro Magister – 2/24/18

Everyone remembers Fr. Thomas G. Weinandy for the open letter he sent to Pope Francis last summer, and which he himself made public on November 1 on Settimo Cielo:

> A Theologian Writes To the Pope: There Is Chaos in the Church, and You Are a Cause

Today, Saturday February 24, he returns to the fray with the conference that he gave this morning in Sydney, organized by Notre Dame University of Australia.

In it, Fr. Weinandy describes and denounces the attack of unprecedented gravity that some of the “pastoral” theories and practices encouraged by Pope Francis are carrying out against the “one, holy, Catholic, and apostolic” Church and in particular against the Eucharist that is “source and summit” of the Church’s very life. read more

While fiscal conservatives are still reeling from the latest spending spree sanctioned by another congressional budget-be-damned continuing “irresolution,” social conservatives may be suffering a similar sense of betrayal over a recent decision to ban an exhibit by MassResistance at the Conservative Political Action Conference this week in the Washington, D.C., suburb of National Harbor, Md. read more

LEADING VATICAN OBSERVER CLAIMS ‘FRANCIS REVOLUTION ALMOST OVER’

Reforming the Vatican is like ‘cleaning the Sphinx with a toothbrush’ remark is an indication of Francis’ powerlessness said Franco

Massimo Franco, the political editor of Corriere della Sera and widely respected commentator on the Vatican, said this week (Wednesday) that he believes the “revolutionary appeal of Pope Francis is almost over”.

Speaking without reporting restrictions at London’s Chatham House, the Royal Institute of International Affairs independent think tank, he contrasted the expectations of reform that followed Jorge Bergoglio’s election in 2013 with the actual results five years on. Referring to Francis’ remark in his annual Christmas speech to the curia on 21 December last year, that reforming the Vatican is like “cleaning the Sphinx with a toothbrush”, he said that this comment was an indication of Francis’ powerlessness. read more

No similar call-in organized for recent pro-life laws

WASHINGTON (ChurchMilitant.com) – The U.S. bishops are proclaiming February 26, National Catholic Call-In Day to Protect Dreamers, after legislation to protect dreamers failed to pass the Senate last week.

joint statement from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) announced Monday: “[W]e will be asking the faithful across the nation to call their Members of Congress next Monday, February 26, to protect Dreamers from deportation, to provide them a path to citizenship, and to avoid any damage to existing protections for families and unaccompanied minors in the process.”

The Senate failed on February 15 to pass a bipartisan measure that included a path to citizenship for 1.8 million Dreamers, illegal immigrants who came to the United States as minors, and a $25 billion for a border wall. The final vote was 54–45, lacking the 60 votes for Senate passage. read more

Church leaders shielding RINOs?

AUSTIN, Texas (ChurchMilitant.com) – Fake Republicans in Texas are losing, and the Catholic bishops seem ready to sacrifice a faithful pro-life leader to defend them.

On Thursday, the Texas Catholic Conference of Bishops issued a rebuke to Texas Right to Life, warning parishes “not to participate in their activities or allow the organization to use parish sites.” read more

CPAC vilifies and slanders MassResistance to the public!

CPAC vilifies and slanders MassResistance to the public!

Callers to CPAC office are told that we “lack common decency” – and worse

The purge continues: Bans others friendly to MassResistance

Huge outrage against CPAC from across the pro-family conservative network

February 22, 2018


The LGBT Log Cabin Republicans’ float at the Gay Pride Parade in Chicago. Despite the group’s disgusting signs (see below) CPAC does not consider this to be “lacking in common decency” – as they’ve judged MassResistance. CAUTION: Obscene language.

The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), the oldest and largest annual “conservative” conference in America, is taking place this week. But there is almost no pro-family presence at all. Starting with MassResistance, and now extending to friendly media and a group allied with us, the conference organizers appear to be purging those who see the battle before us as a “culture war” that must be confronted, rather than simply a disagreement which can be “winsomely” debated. read more

She Hated Catholicism But Realized that It Was True

Gloria.TV News for February 22, 2018

The Protestant YouTube star Lizzie Estella Reezay is converting to Catholicism. In a video posted to her account, she explains: “I want everyone to know that I hated that this was happening.

I wanted to be anything but Catholic.” However, she said she had no choice but to convert when she realized Catholicism was true. read more

From Gloria.TV News for February 22, 2018

On Candlemas, February 2, a Traditional Latin Mass was celebrated in an oratory of the Opus Dei in Santiago de Chile, writes La Fede Quotidiana. A large group of students attended. The Roman Opus Dei parish Sant’Eugenio has a Tridentine Mass once a month. The founder of the Opus Dei, Saint Josemaría Escrivá, was one of the few priests after Second Vatican Council who never adopted the New Mass and, with permission, celebrated the Mass of his forfathers until his dead in 1975. read more

Top U.S. conservative event CPAC has been hijacked by LGBTQUEER activists. Trust me, I used to be one

February 22, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – I attended my first Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) nearly a decade ago, while still living as a gay man.

I had recently undergone a ‘political awakening’ and, as a participant in the Tea Party movement from its inception, had recently co-founded National Capital Tea Party Patriots in Washington, DC.

At the time, I was dating a guy whose cousin was one of the Republican Party’s famous three “Young Guns” — Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy and Paul Ryan — who were rising in leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives. I felt like that added to my conservative bona fides. read more

Heretical Kraut Bishops Introduce Communion For Prots

Heretical Kraut Bishops Introduce Communion For Prots

[“Give not that which is holy to dogs; neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest perhaps they trample them under their feet …” (Matthew 7:6) – AQ moderator Tom]
en.news – 2/22/18

The bishops of the [formerly] Catholic Church in Germany sink deeper and deeper into the mud of heresy and disbelief.

During their meeting in Ingolstadt, which ended today, they voted by a large majority in favour of sacrilegiously giving Holy Communion to Protestants who are married to a Catholic spouse. For the Church, this decision is utterly void and null, because the bishops have no right to make it.

According to katholisch.de (February 22) the bishops defined “conditions” for sacrilegiously receiving  Communion, for instance, “talking to a priest” and “deciding in one’s conscience” that one affirms the Catholic faith. But who affirms the Faith must in conscience convert to the Church. read more
