To Whom It May Concern ( in Rome, in DC, in NYC, etc.)


“Make no mistake, brethren; the corrupters of families will not inherit the kingdom of God. If, then, those are dead who do these things according to the flesh, how much worse if, with bad doctrine, one should corrupt the faith of God for which Jesus Christ was crucified. Such a man, for becoming contaminated, will depart into unquenchable fire; and will anyone who listens to him.”

[ Letter to the Ephesians, Chap. 16,1 ]

St. Ignatius was, like St. Polycarp, a disciple of St. John. read more

Gloria TV Videos on “With Burning Concern”

Report on the Liber authored by John Vennari, Chris Ferrara and Mike Matt.

In several installments:

Gloria TV News on the 26rd of September 2016

Calamity: The Remnant and Catholic Family News published a letter last week and a Liber of Accusation against Pope Francis entitled, “With Burning Concern: We Accuse Pope Francis.” The text calls this pontificate – quote – “a calamity for the Church in proportion to which it delights the powers of this world.”

Pope Francis Defies Christ: The trigger for publishing the Liber of Accusation was Pope Francis’ letter to bishops in Buenos Aires authorizing them to admit public adulterers to the sacraments without repentance. The authors of the Liber write: “You have thus defied the very words of Our Lord Himself condemning divorce and ‘remarriage’ as adultery per se without exception.” read more

The program is broadcast on Boston’s WGBH-TV, the so-called flagship station of the Public Broadcasting System. read more

Our Lady Of The Holy Rosary novena Sept 28-Oct 6

O QUEEN of the most holy Rosary, in these times
of brazen impiety, show again thy power, with the
signs which accompanied thy victories of old, and from
the throne where thou art seated, dispensing pardon and
grace, in pity watch over the Church of thy Son, His
Vicar, and every order of the clergy and laity, suffering
in grievous warfare.
Hasten, O most powerful destroyer of heresy, hasten the hour of mercy,
seeing that the hour of judgment is daily challenged by innumerable offenses.
Obtain for me, the lowest of men, kneeling suppliant in thy presence,
the grace which may enable me to live a just life on earth,
and reign with the just in heaven,
whilst with the faithful throughout the world,
O Queen of the most holy Rosary, I salute thee and cry out:
Queen of the most holy Rosary, pray for us!
Mention your intentions….
