    The question remains: Can we believe our Bishops? January 17, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Two recent stories have shocked Catholics in the United States and around the world. First, on December 4, Msgr. Edward Weber, “director of priest personnel” (whatever that might be) in the Archdiocese of New York, wrote a formal letter of recommendation for a priest, Fr. Donald Timone, who wished to spend some time at a Catholic college in California. The letter affirmed (according to CNA) that Fr. Timone had “never been accused of any act of sexual abuse or sexual misconduct involving a minor,” and “manifested...

We are now using a source for the video provided by Complicit Clergy.  MINNEAPOLIS, MN, January 17, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – A parish priest in Minnesota gave the pulpit to a same-sex “married” couple in a pre-Mass presentation last Sunday, allowing the two men to showcase their homosexual partnership, which included a child whom they said was conceived by IVF and carried to term via surrogacy.  Alan Nachtigal and Blake Wilson were legally “married” to each other in Minneapolis...

    Please, bishops: act now; you’re running out of time! The statement from Archishop Vigano, pleading with McCarrick to make a public act of repentance, was a dramatic—and sadly rare—display of bold pastoral leadership. God bless Bishop Strickland for joining in that plea. I hope and pray that other American bishops will follow suit. But please, bishops, act now. You’re running out of time. This morning, by chance (or was it by chance?) I found myself reading from the sermons of St. Claude la Colombiere. Speaking about true repentance for sin, St. Claude tells this striking story: We read, in the...

    D.C.'s embattled Catholic leader, Donald Wuerl, under fire in recent days for untruthful statements regarding what he knew about the alleged sexual misconduct of his predecessor, Theodore McCarrick, apologized late Tuesday, saying he forgot he knew about the allegations and that it was “never the intention to provide false information.” Wuerl apologized to former priest Robert Ciolek in the evening and then sent a letter to the priests of the archdiocese, where Wuerl is the acting administrator. Pope Francis received Wuerl’s retirement as archbishop earlier than expected last fall as the cardinal was being pummeled by criticism over his handling...

    Cdl. Wuerl asks for ‘understanding’ after evidence shows he lied about McCarrick WASHINGTON, D.C., January 14, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – In a January 12 letter addressed to the priests of the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C., Cardinal Donald Wuerl offered no apology for months of deceitful statements denying his knowledge of sex abuse allegations against disgraced ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick. Instead, he asked for “understanding.” The letter (read full letter below) comes after news last week that Wuerl was deceitful about his knowledge of sex abuse allegations against McCarrick, further vindicating the testimony from former Papal Nuncio Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganň on who knew about...

    Francis and Sexual Abuse. The Pope Who Knew Too Much Pope Francis has already made it clear for some time how he judges and how he intends to address the question of sexual abuse among sacred ministers. As a problem not primarily of sex but of power, not of individuals but of caste, the clerical caste.He gave this to be understood in the letter on this question that he addressed to the “people of God” on August 20, 2018, in which he never mentions “sexual abuse” on its own, but in the combination of “sexual abuse, the abuse of power...

    Viganò tells McCarrick: repent, for the sake of your soul Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò has called on Archbishop Theodore McCarrick to repent publicly of alleged “crimes against minors and abuses of seminarians”.In an open letter, the former nuncio to the Unites States told McCarrick that “time is running out” and his “eternal salvation is at stake”.“No matter what decision the supreme authority of the Church takes in your case, what really matters, and what has saddened those who love you and pray for you, is the fact that throughout these months you haven’t given any sign of repentance,” Viganò...

    GUESS WHO? (New Vatican PR Chief Identifies "Great Accuser") Looks like next month's Vatican summit meeting with the world bishops’ conference heads—called, ostensibly, to address the massive sex abuse crisis in the Church—will likely have all the effectiveness of a very nice bumper sticker. The real problem in the Church today is, of course, homosexuality in the priesthood. But how can the Vatican be expected to address that when there are so many other more pressing problems to tackle? Clericalism, for example. That’s a biggie!  And the abuse of power, immigration, plastic straws in the ocean. There’s a lot on...

    Long before he concealed McCarrick’s misconduct, he had done the same for his mentor. In the latest revelation about Donald Wuerl — that, contrary to his claims of ignorance, he knew about McCarrick’s misconduct for at least 14 years — he emerges as the amoral but self-protective bureaucrat, undone by his own pass-the-buck-style record-keeping, which gives a grimly ironic dimension to his downfall. Wuerl’s policy wasn’t one of zero tolerance but of zero legal exposure, and toward that end he needed to keep records of complaints he had received and transmitted to the papal nuncio.

    The Zanchetta case: a fatal blow to the Pope’s reputation as a reformer Last week the Vatican acknowledged that an Argentine bishop working at the Vatican faces sex-abuse charges. The story drew little attention from American media outlets, and understandably so: just one more in a long line of complaints against clerics, in this case involving a bishop whose name (Gustavo Oscar Zanchetta) was unfamiliar to readers in the US. But reporters who look at the story just a bit more carefully recognize it as a blockbuster: a potentially fatal blow to the reputation of Pope Francis as a reformer....

The first public statement that Alessandro Gisotti, the new director of the press office of the Holy See, released after embarking on his role concerns the case of an Argentine bishop (in the photo) who is in danger of smashing to smithereens the strategy that Francis has adopted for addressing the question of sexual abuse committed by sacred ministers.It is the strategy that also inspires the letter that the pope sent at the new year to the bishops of...

    Gay Jesuit candidate attacks 'ideological militants'Sometimes, the homosexual subculture in the Church and among the clergy isn't content to slink in the shadows. Sometimes, it narcissistically demands center stage, and it seizes the limelight with a ferocity that is best viewed as an upside-down parody of what true virtue really is. One would be hard-pressed to find a more complete example of this kind of unintended parody than in the social media presence of Jesuit order candidate R. Jay Pearson. Jay Pearson is as proudly and publicly "gay" as one can be. "My name is Jay, I am a Greek...

    Roman Catholic Faithful (RCF) is back, and it's leading the charge against homosexualist corruption in the archdiocese of Chicago.  On Saturday, Jan. 5, followers of the Illinois-based defender of Catholic orthodoxy gathered for a rally near Mundelein Seminary, where the U.S. bishops were sequestered for a week of "prayer and unity." The RCF conference drew hundreds of concerned laity and gave evidence of a rising groundswell of opposition to business-as-usual among the hierarchy. Founder and President Stephen Brady rallied concerned Catholics to confront bad bishops directly and to be creative in fighting to roll back the rot. He told his audience his goal is...

    Analysis: The non-trial of Theodore McCarrick While recent media reports suggest that a trial of Archbishop Theodore McCarrick is underway, Vatican sources have told CNA that his case is not being handled by a full judicial process.Sources at the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith have confirmed that allegations against McCarrick are being considered through an abbreviated approach called an “administrative penal process.”That decision gives insight into the strength of evidence against McCarrick, and suggests that resolving sexual abuse allegations against the archbishop is a top priority for Pope Francis and other senior Vatican officials.—Canon law outlines specific processes...

Twenty-five years ago, on 8 February 1994, the European Parliament voted on a resolution that invited the nations of Europe to promote and give legal protection to homosexuality. In his Angelus address on 20 February 1994, the Holy Father Pope John Paul II appealed to public opinion worldwide, affirming that “the legal approbation of active homosexuality is not morally admissible [...]. The Resolution of the European Parliament has called for the legitimization of a moral disorder.The Parliament has unduly given institutional value to deviant behaviors, which do not conform to God’s plan”....

It turns out that another McCarrick-like predator has been nesting at the Vatican under the patronage of this famously permissive pope. “Pope Francis’ Argentinean Protégé Accused of Sex Abuse,” reported the Daily Beast.The accused bishop is Gustavo Óscar Zanchetta, a...

    Breaking News: Vatican Attempts McCarrick Cover-Up Church Militant has learned from extremely reliable sources that the Vatican investigation into disgraced former cardinal Theodore McCarrick appears to have gone into cover-up mode. In an unbelievable turn of events, Church investigators are now presenting the accusations against McCarrick from a former altar boy as not credible. But what is proving to be astonishing is the rationale. The case as laid out to Church Militant is that the then-16-year-old boy went to St. Patrick's Cathedral to seek out McCarrick and serve midnight Mass in 1972 where McCarrick groped and fondled him in the sacristy. Even...
