Church is ‘gravely mistaken’ if she thinks migration is her real mission: Cardinal Sarah

Pete Baklinski

April 25, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The Church would ignore the “real crisis” she faces today if she focuses on social justice issues rather than her basic mission to evangelize, Cardinal Robert Sarah warns in a newly-published interview.

“The Church is gravely mistaken as to the nature of the real crisis if she thinks that her essential mission is to offer solutions to all the political problems relating to justice, peace, poverty, the reception of migrants, etc. while neglecting evangelisation,” the cardinal told Aid to the Church in Need on April 18.

CATHOLICS REACT TO LE PEN’S WIN

Catholics React to Le Pen’s Win

The once-fringe candidate is now a major contender in France’s presidential elections

by Christine Niles, M.St. (Oxon.), J.D. • ChurchMilitant • April 24, 2017 36 Comments

PARIS – Hours after French political leaders Marine Le Pen and Emmanuel Macron — both Catholics — won the top spots in France’s upcoming presidential run-off, the French bishops issued confusing voters’ guidelines that appeared to snub Le Pen.

Riding on a wave of anti-Islamist sentiment in the wake of recent Islamic terror attacks in Paris, Front National candidate Le Pen — dubbed the French Donald Trump — captured the second-largest percentage of votes in Sunday’s presidential elections, winning 21.53 percent, coming in only a few points behind center-left Emmanuel Macron, who won 23.74 percent.

FSSP Superior Distinguishes Fraternity from SSPX, Eschews “Traditionalist” Label

FSSP Superior Distinguishes Fraternity from SSPX, Eschews “Traditionalist” Label

Maike Hickson April 24, 2017

The usually cautious and reserved Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) has now given its current opinion concerning the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) and on its possible formal re-integration into the structures of the Catholic Church. Father Bernhard Gerstle – the head of the German district of the FSSP – just gave a 24 April interview to the German Bishops’ official website Katholisch.de in which he explains many of the positions and opinions of his priestly fraternity. (Father Gerstle is the same priest who, in 2016, made a politely critical statement about the papal document Amoris Laetitia.)

Cardinal Sarah: Church is facing ‘grave risk’ of schism over morality

Cardinal Sarah: Church is facing ‘grave risk’ of schism over morality

Pete Baklinski

NEW YORK, April 24, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Cardinal Robert Sarah warned that the Church’s unity is being threatened by influential leaders within the Church who “insist” that national churches have the “capacity to decide for themselves” on doctrinal and moral matters.

“Without a common faith, the Church is threatened by confusion and then, progressively, she can slide into dispersion and schism,” he said.

DEMOCRATS HAVE A CATHOLIC PROBLEM

DEMOCRATS HAVE A CATHOLIC PROBLEM

4/24/17

Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the Democrats and Catholics:

Heath Mello has divided the Democratic Party. This is unusual given his low profile: he is running for mayor of Omaha, Nebraska. What makes him controversial among Democrats are his pro-life convictions.

Senator Bernie Sanders, an Independent, has taken the high road, prudently saying that although he favors abortion rights, there should be room for Mello in the Democratic Party. Tom Perez, the chairman of the Democratic National Committee, disagrees—there is no room for people like him.

April 24, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Canada’s bishops must clean up or shut down Development & Peace in the wake of a LifeSiteNews investigation that revealed the Catholic aid organization funded pro-abortion and pro-homosexual activist groups in Latin American, pro-life leaders say.

Your Wish is My Command

NIN, you raise interesting distinctions.
The point about not judging the interiors is most apt. It’s impossible to do so unless the subject is entirely, formally outspoken and details the blueprint for his audience.
What is written down, whether by authorship or responsible quotation, is matter for inspection and serious commentary. Unless it is, outright public acts ( obvious defections, public silliness, etc. ) notwithstanding, the auditor is merely playing Karnak the Magnificent.

[Does he mean that two children are not enough?]

Francis’ words upon exiting the Basilica of St. Bartholomew, Isola Tiberina, Rome, Italy — Saturday, 22 April 2017

“Thank you for being here. Thank you for your prayers. This church of the martyrs this reminded me of the cruelty, the cruelty that so many people have to suffer, the exploitation of people I’m reminded of the people who come here in boats and they are left there (in internment camps), in generous countries like Italy and Greece who receive them but then because of international agreements don’t allow them to move on. If Italy was able to welcome two migrants per municipality there would be room for everyone. And this generosity of the South (of Italy) of Lampedusa, Sicily, Lesvos, if only it could infect a bit the North (of Italy). It’s true we are a society that doesn’t have children, but we close the doors to migrants. This is called suicide. Let us pray!”

FrankenPope calls refugee centers concentration camps

FrankenPope calls refugee centers concentration camps

APRIL 23, 2017 BY DEACON ROBERT SPENCER

Except for that little matter of the Nazis putting people in concentration camps in order to work them to death or murder them outright. But what need does the Pope have for such petty details?

The Pope continues to exhort Europeans to commit civilizational suicide, and doesn’t hesitate to shame them into it by claiming it’s their Christian duty.

“Leave them; they are blind guides. And if a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.” (Matthew 15:14)

Novena to Saint Monica April 25-May 3

O exemplary mother of the great St. Augustine, you perseveringly pursued your wayward son,
not with wild threats but with prayerful cries to Heaven.
Intercede for all mothers today, that they may learn to draw their children to God.
Teach them to remain close to their children, even the prodigal sons and daughters who have sadly gone astray.

Dear St. Monica, troubled wife and mother, many sorrows pierced your heart during your lifetime,
yet you never despaired or lost faith.
With confidence, persistence and profound faith, you obtained the conversions
of your beloved husband Patricius and your beloved son, Augustine.

Florida: Catholic diocese of Orlando reprimands schoolteacher for quoting Saint [John Bosco] on Islam

Florida: Catholic diocese of Orlando reprimands schoolteacher for quoting Saint [John Bosco] on Islam

[More Catholic dhimmitude]

APRIL 22, 2017 BY DEACON ROBERT SPENCER

“Flanigan, the associate superintendent of Orlando Diocese schools, said ‘the information provided in the sixth grade class is not consistent with the teachings of the Catholic Church.’”

But the author of this material is a saint in the Catholic Church, St. John Bosco. So did a saint spread ideas that were “not consistent with the teachings of the Catholic Church”? How, then, did he become a saint? Why didn’t his apparently heterodox, disrespectful, hateful teaching on Islam prevent his canonization?

THE SOROS FACTOR: Did O’Reilly Pick on the Wrong Guy?

Written by Remnant Staff Writer

To paraphrase the Bard, sexual harassment is a grievous fault and, if it’s true, grievously hath Bill O’Reilly answer’d it. But is that really what’s behind the fall of the FOX NEWS mogul? Or does it have more to do with the fact the O’Reilly thought he was big enough to expose New World Order front man, George Soros?

You don’t have to be a big fan of Bill O’Reilly’s to smell a rat here.
What’s really going on at FOX, and who’s next?
