Say Goodbye to Hollywood, the Beatles & Bugnini

Say Goodbye to Hollywood, the Beatles & Bugnini

Published on Nov 22, 2017

In the wake of the movie mogul Harvey Weinstein sex scandal, Hollywood’s dark and nasty underbelly is finally beginning to show. From down in the catacombs Michael Matt talks pop culture, pointing out how early Traditional Catholics were just as concerned about the rock ‘n’ roll and Hollywood-driven Sexual Revolution as they were the liturgical revolution of Vatican II. Pope Pius XI issued an encyclical warning against the motion picture industry way back in 1939. Were Catholics of the past just paranoid, or have post-Vatican II Catholics of today simply lost the ability to recognize evil when we see it? Now we have prominent cardinals in Rome eulogizing gender-benders such as David Bowie, while Neo-Catholics hope and pray that AC/DC drummer Malcolm Young is now “playing before the throne of God.” When, exactly, did the Catholic Church agree to an unconditional surrender to the cultural gods of the wasteland? read more

Ecumenism tries to change history

Ecumenism tries to change history
Gloria.TV News 11/23/17

Last Friday the American Pro-Life activist and speaker [Raymond de Souza] gave a conference in Vienna about the Bible and Protestantism. De Souza asked the question, how Protestants could possibly establish the canon of the Bible and decide without the Church which books of the Bible are inspired by the Holy Spirit. He stressed that Protestants claim that the Bible is the pylon and foundation of the truth, whereas the Letter of Timothy says, that the Church is the pylon and the fundament of truth. De Souza’s talk is available on Gloria.TVblob:www.gloria.tv/d0a808ce-4849-48c3-bbf7-1ace6aa1b931 read more

Pope Francis says “stop loving your neighbour”

Pope Francis says “stop loving your neighbour”

Wednesday, 22 November 2017

After 2000 years, the Catholic Church is coming to terms with yet another new development of doctrine, as Pope Francis has announced that the old “rigid” teaching “Love your neighbour as yourself” needs revising. After all, he pointed out, a few minutes’ Ignatian discernment will tell you that you are not supposed to love yourself, and therefore you should not love your neighbour either.

This “love your neighbour” stuff is too exhausting.

The new doctrine, to be expressed in an encyclical Non Plus Benevolens (“No more Mr Nice Guy”), will be welcomed by many Catholics who find that loving their neighbours is really too difficult. read more

Cardinal Ouellet Converts To Bergoglianism

Cardinal Ouellet Converts To Bergoglianism

[His Eminence now stands with Cardinal Kasper, whose advocacy of the same he previously criticized as …]

Those who have divorced and remarried are in a situation that objectively contradicts the indissoluble ecclesial bond that they solemnly expressed before the community. They are unable to represent in the world the Church-Brides unconditional “amen” to the gift of the Bridegroom in the Eucharist. Communion on the part of divorced and remarried persons would not be a genuine, personal and ecclesial “amen” to Christ’s Body and Blood, broken and shed for the salvation both of the spouses and of all mankind. While respecting the secret of conscience, the Church cannot allow sacramental communion in such cases because to do so would be — objectively — to allow a false communion that would contradict her fidelity to the Bridegroom’s sacrifice. read more

Mulieres Vocamus- We Call Women.

2019 Exhortation

  1. So many girls and young women plaintively and humbly recounted their call from the Holy Spirit to the priesthood that they cannot be ignored. We must recognize that these girls and young women, and those who identify as such, catholic and not, many of them but teenagers, are not lying and they are not mistaken. 1 The Spirit is the Spirit of Truth and We know that the Father of Lies would not do this because a house divided against itself would fall – unlike the totally united Church of today.2
  1. With 79% of the 485 carefully chosen bishops (representing over 7.93% of all bishops) agreeing in their post-synodal report (well-researched and painstakingly prepared before the synod began), We now see that We must integrate joyfully all the faithful into all the sacraments, We issue this proclamation. To do otherwise is to practice an intolerance, prejudice, injustice, and bigotry that can only be of the devil, as would be opposition to this truth, truth latent for centuries and now brought into the light by Us.

III.              We now develop the insights of these relatively few enlightened shepherds  and the fruits of the indwelling of Our Spirit in these girls and women who have been called (and we pray daily  for those girls and women who were led into error by The Evil One and said there was and is no such call). Based on these pre-synodal and synodal private revelations, and the report of the shepherds – We now elevate what they have done to real, just doctrine.   For almost two millenia We have not heard, or We have ignored, Our Spirit, but now We hear, now We listen, now We act. 4 read more
