Mrs. Niles Responds For Voris

I sent the link from Tantumblogo’s “A cry from the heart…” to several folks and got this response to the group:

“Since I was included in this e-mail, I’ll briefly respond: “Tantum” had the opportunity at any time to pick up the phone & call Michael Voris or speak with this so-called “funder” — both of whose contact information he has — but never chose to do so, so we question the sincerity of this “cry of the heart.” read more

Why Do I Post on Angelqueen?

There are many reasons. First, I believe the Founder shares many of my own views on the state of the Church and the world and that he truly believes in the “motto” – Purity and Tradition in Catholicism. Second, so far as I can tell, there is no “shadow organization” behind this endeavor or, to put it bluntly, no one pulling the strings so one traditional group has oneupsmanship over the other. Thirdly, I’m try to make up for my own failures as a father and Catholic since two of our children pay little attention to the practice of the Faith and most of my extended family is either novus ordo or worse. To summarize, I’m trying to make up for my own sins while God gives me the time to do so. I ask only for your prayers and indulgence. Thank you and God bless you all. read more

The below is my own personal impression of the severe decay of a once most promising apostolate. They are strictly my own impressions and reminiscences.

It has been difficult for me to observe the changes that have afflicted Church Militant TV – formerly Real Catholic TV – over the past 2-3 years. During the period 2010-2012, I collaborated with Michael Voris a great deal. I, with Vicki Middleton’s (God rest her pious soul) gracious help, arranged to bring Michael Voris to Dallas for a talk in March of 2012. He stayed at our house for 3 days. We got along splendidly. He was honest, forthright, utterly sincere, and conveyed a clear understanding of the crisis that has afflicted the Church up to and including the role of the conciliar and post-conciliar popes in that crisis. I was thoroughly impressed and felt I was in the presence of a man who could really make a difference. read more

Pope Francis Sends “Blessing” to Publisher of Homosexual-Friendly Books for Children

By John Vennari

August 28: Pope Francis sent an encouraging letter to lesbian founder of publishing house for children’s books.

Today’s Il Giornale reports, “The Pope blesses gender ideology books. To the author he writes: “Go ahead.”

The report continues, “Pope Francis still amazes, writing a long letter to the author of the books that the mayor of Venice, Luigi Brugnaro, wanted to ban from its schools. After the Synod on the family that threatens to split the church, the Pope again lines up in defense of the same-sex couples.”

Francesca Pardi, founder with her partner Maria Silvia Fiengo of the publishing house for childrens’ books, The Block letters, is the author of books such as Little Egg, Little Story of a family: Why you have two mothers? and “What is the secret of Dad? read more

At Hippo in Africa, the birthday of St. Augustine, bishop and famous doctor of the Church. Converted and baptized by the blessed bishop Ambrose, he defended the Catholic faith with the greatest zeal against the Manicheans and other heretics, and after having sustained many other labours for the Church of God, he went to his reward in heaven. His relics, owing to the invasion of barbarians, were first brought from his own city into Sardinia, and afterwards taken by Luitprand, king of the Lombards, to Pavia, where they were deposited with due honours. read more

Which Bozo will Be Our Next President?

I say Bozo because it seems none of the candidates know, or at least believe, that Almighty God is the Author of Life. So far, the candidates all seem to take the approach that Abortion is permissable when the life of the mother is at stake or the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest. But, the child in the womb at the moment of conception is an innocent human life and the heart beating in that tiny body, and the immortal soul contained therein, was placed there by Almighty God. As such, it is innocent of any wrongdoing and the taking of that life is a crime against the Fifth Commandment: “Thou shalt not kill.” Human beings do not create life; they only supply the means, if you will, that God uses to breathe life into a new person, totally distinct from any other person on this earth. It has also been said by any number of doctors that it’s never necessary to kill the baby so the mother can survive. I’m no doctor but I’ll side with the Author of Life, if you will. read more
