Both the Neo-Catholic World and certain Traditionalists are in shock this morning after reading that the German bishops will allow Protestant spouses of Catholics to receive Holy Communion.

As National Catholic Register reporter, Edward Pentin, writes:

At their spring conference in Ingolstadt, the German bishops’ conference agreed that a Protestant partner of a Catholic can receive the Eucharist after having made a “serious examination” of conscience with a priest or another person with pastoral responsibilities, “affirms the faith of the Catholic Church,” wishes to end “serious spiritual distress,” and has a “longing to satisfy a hunger for the Eucharist.”  read more

Charity accuses “transpotphobic” teacher of hate crime

It is worrying to read that the charity “Teasmades” has called the police after a teacher refused to acknowledge one of his pupils as “transpotted”.Teasmade

The Director of Teasmades.

The Catholic (and indeed medical) position is clear. Many children go through a phase of singing the immortal hymn “I’m a little teapot, Short and stout. Here’s my handle, Here’s my spout” (arr. Dan Schutte), and this leads some of them to believe for a while that they are in fact teapots. But transpotterism is a psychological condition, and there is no way that such kids can really be teapots.

Should these kids be given surgery to fit handles and spouts? read more

What a loving, loving, loving brother!

Bishop Tobin is, as many of you know, one of the FrancisTribe, pretty much at the forefront of the adulterers-and-homo agenda.

This makes him, both to me and to every reader of mine with a robust common sense, suspect of having some skeleton in the closet. Say, a mistress, or a male “lover”, or paedo tendencies, or financial malfeasance. read more

The news is now everywhere. In what clearly amounts to a “German Schism” (very much redolent of the “Dutch Schism” of the Sixties) the German bishops have overwhelmingly voted for the desecration of the Holy Host and the rape of the Sacrament of Communion by allowing Protestants to (try to) receive communion. read more

FrankenPope’s request for $25 million to corruption-plagued hospital makes major media

[Washington, DC,  LaDonna Cardinal Wuerl was involved especially with his quote that the grant was made “in the larger context of the Holy Father’s commitment to confront corruption and financial mismanagement both within the Vatican itself and in outside projects” to an institution accused of money-laundering and running up a billion-dollar debt! – AQ moderator Tom]

WASHINGTON, D.C., February 23, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – LifeSiteNews’ exclusive report on the multi-million-dollar Vatican financial scandal involving Pope Francis, the U.S.-based Papal Foundation and a Church-owned corruption-ridden hospital in Rome earned coverage by EWTN’s The World Over Thursday night. read more

en.news – 2/24/18

Cardinal Francesco Montenegro, 71, of Agrigento, Sicily, believes that concern for “immigrants” – a euphemism for mass immigration – has become “a matter of faith”.

Montenegro told cruxnow.com (February 22) that failing to accept mass immigration “is the greatest sin I could commit.” This way, Montenegro implicitly canonised the irresponsible immigration policy of the present leftwing Italian government which is made up by former Communists. Over 80% of the practicing Catholics oppose it. read more

Bermuda repeal of gay marriage to stand

Hamilton, Bermuda, Feb 19, 2018 / 01:13 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- The British government has said it will not overrule a Bermudian law passed earlier this month which abolishes same-sex marriage, less than a year after the institution was imposed by a court decision.

Bermuda’s parliament passed a bill in December 2017 which abolished same-sex marriage, and rather allowed both opposite- and same-sex couples to form domestic partnerships. The Domestic Partnership Act was approved by Bermuda Governor John Rankin Feb. 7. read more

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

LEADING VATICAN OBSERVER CLAIMS ‘FRANCIS REVOLUTION ALMOST OVER’

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
