    More Vomit From The Youth Sin-Nod What else can be expected when it starts off with the pope carrying a wiccan stang into the opening Mass?  I just started to glance at the Instrumentum Laboris and that promises to be a stinker, too. At this thing, the attendees were put into fourteen groups for discussion, all led by prelates.  Cardinal Cupich led one, Cardinal Maradiaga another.  Right there you can see the rigging in the works.  Cupich's group allegedly called for "recognition of other forms of family".  Stop right there.  A family comes about when a biologically born man...
  • [Catholic Caucus] The Wrong People Francis Can’t Get Rid Of

    Ex-cardinal Theodore McCarrick is not the only wrong person on whom Francis bet. Because at least three others can be pointed out, in the upper levels of the hierarchy, each one tied with double thread to the changes that this pope wants to introduce into the Church. Francis too had known for some time about McCarrick’s bad conduct, his grooming of young people and seminarians, taking them on outings and then to bed. And yet he kept him right with him until the end, as his chief adviser in the appointments aimed at tipping the balance of power among the...

    The American Catholic ^ | October 14, 2018 | George Neumayr
    The Fall of the Gay Mafia’s Don The Pope’s glowing words won’t save Wuerl. He will end his days in disgrace. Some of Donald Wuerl’s priests called him the “Tin Man,” a reference to his cold, heartless style as the archbishop of Washington, D.C., a position from which he has now formally resigned, though outrageously Pope Francis is permitting him to continue as an “apostolic administrator” until his successor arrives. It is hilarious that Wuerl became arguably the most powerful American cardinal in the “pastoral church of Pope Francis,” given that Wuerl is the least pastoral prelate imaginable. He instinctively...

    Another Gay? New Vatican Sostituto Edgar Peña Parra in Hot Water Archbishop Edgar Peña Parra, handpicked by Pope Francis, will start as the Deputy of the Vatican Secretary of State on October 15. But last week a 25-page dossier was emailed to some Vatican cardinals, signed by “Lay-people of the Archdiosis of Maracaibo” - Peña’s Venezuelian home archdiocese. The pro-Francis but anti-Church Italian magazine L’Espresso (October 12) was almost immediately given access to the dossier by the Pro-Bergoglio party in order to break the story (October 12), to discredit the dossier [with a sloppily written article] and to publish it...

    The Case against Pope Francis He has elevated immoral men in order to change the Catholic faith Just over five years ago, the Argentine cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio came out onto the loggia of St. Peter’s as Pope Francis. It is useful to recall the situation of the Church that he inherited.The sex-abuse scandals that had rocked the Church in America and some European countries at the turn of the millennium were subsiding, or so it seemed. But the dysfunction at the Vatican under Pope Benedict XVI had overwhelmed the scholarly pontiff. Benedict’s chosen reformer for the corrupt Vatican...

    Chicago cathedral hosts gay ‘meet-up’ group led by ‘gay’ priest-masseur CHICAGO, October 12, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A Chicago priest who advertises on the internet as a “gay” masseur who does “man to man bodywork” says he has permission to host an openly homosexual group at his Catholic priory.  Openly homosexual Fr. Michael Guimon is a member of the Friars Servants of Mary — or Servites — and head of the priory at Our Lady of Sorrows National Basilica. He’s also the Servites’ formation director and senior care minister, with specialties of “spiritual companion and massage therapist.”  Profile pic of...

Yet Coccopalmerio was allowed to leave the scene of the crime, an apartment in the very building that houses the former Holy Office, now called the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.Thus no one should be surprised that...

    Francis’ glowing send-off of Wuerl signals he’s ‘not the Pope to clean out the stables’: scholar WASHINGTON, D.C., October 12, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Pope Francis’ praise of Cardinal Wuerl for his “nobility” and “docility to the Spirit” in his letter accepting the Cardinal’s resignation signals that Francis is “not the Pope to clean out the stables” of the abuse crisis that is rocking the Church, a Catholic scholar said.  Oxford University’s Dr. Joseph Shaw told LifeSiteNews that Pope Francis’s Oct. 12 letter accepting Cardinal Wuerl’s resignation “makes it very clear” that he doesn’t want to punish his subordinate.  “In...

    Wuerl I, Wuerl II and Wuerl III Pope Francis accepted the resignation of Donald Cardinal Wuerl as archbishop of Washington, nearly three years after Wuerl submitted it upon turning 75. Far from a dismissal or firing of any kind, Wuerl and Francis managed to turn the action into a retirement party.  In the pope's "beautiful letter" (Wuerl's words this morning in a 6:09 a.m. listserv email) to the outgoing archbishop, Wuerl was praised by Francis: "You have sufficient elements to 'justify' your actions and distinguish what it means to cover up crimes or not to deal with problems, and to...

    Vatican City, October 11, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Fourteen small groups of members of the Synod on Young People, the Faith, and Vocational Discernment discussed the Instrumentum Laboris (IL), or working document, guiding the Synod’s deliberations this week.   Divided by language groups, there were four English-language conversations, three French, two Spanish, one German, and one Portuguese. For many of the participants, these were foreign, or second, languages.  The reports of these sessions were largely difficult to read; most were verbose and poorly organized. However, certain themes and tendencies were clear.  First, the English-speaking groups were concerned that the IL...

    How could you, Archbishop Vigano? “How can you celebrate Mass,” Cardinal Ouellet angrily demands of Archbishop Viganò, “and mention the pope’s name in the Eucharistic Prayer?” An excellent question. It forces us to ask whether we have ever imagined that in praying for our shepherds we were thereby paying tribute to their rectitude and decency. Think of the faithful whose priests, over, say, the last 30 years, have invited them to pray for John Paul our pope, or for Benedict our pope … “… and for Rembert our bishop”—who used $450,000 of his flock’s contributions to buy the silence of...

    October 10, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The gutted and repurposed Vatican Academy for Life admonished Catholics over the weekend to cut the “gossip” on the Church’s sexual abuse scandal and trust the Vatican’s handling of the crisis. Responding via Twitter to the October 6 saying Pope Francis is and has been taking care of the Archbishop Theodore McCarrick sexual predation scandal, the Pontifical Academy for Life gave assurances by way of a three-year-old quote from the pope that the truth of the McCarrick scandal would indeed be attained. “McCarrick: @HolySeePress: “We will follow the path of truth wherever it may lead,”...

A highly-placed Vatican source with direct knowledge, who must remain anonymous for fear of reprisal, tells LifeSite that the Pope himself knows of Coccopalmerio’s presence at the party. The party took place in an apartment in the building of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF). Coccopalmerio was head of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts...

    EL CAJON, California, October 9, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – On October 4th, San Diego's Bishop Robert McElroy held the third in a series of eight "listening sessions" that he said would “focus on seeking input from people in the pews" regarding the sexual abuse crisis in the Catholic Church and the actions required to heal from the scandal. A crowd of roughly 300 people filled the parish hall of Our Lady of Grace in El Cajon. The hall was renamed last week after being originally named in honor of Monsignor Thomas Moloney, a former pastor at Our Lady of Grace who was named...

    Pope selects youth from pro-gay Vatican consultant’s media org to attend Synod October 8, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) — The four young people from Canada now at the Vatican synod on youth are all from Salt and Light Media. The Toronto-based media outlet is run by Basilian Fr. Thomas Rosica, who is also on the synod’s Information Commission, and part of the team handling daily press briefings during the three-week event that began Wednesday. Pope Francis named 34 young people to the synod as “collaborators” and “observers.” As such, they take part in discussions, but don’t vote on final documents. Rosica...

    Et Tu, Ouellet? Cardinal Answers Viganò with a Blade, but Provides Confirmation Earlier today, we published a piece by Italian journalist, Vaticanista, and author Marco Tosatti about the Vatican’s response to Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò. Originally published on October 6 (and translated into English for 1P5), that piece was written too soon to take into account the second phase in the Vatican’s communications assault on Viganò.This latter move came yesterday, in the form of an open letter from Cardinal Marc Ouellet of Quebec, Canada.In his most recent public statement issued at the end of September, Viganò made a specific plea...

    The Catholic Thing ^ | Ocotber 8, 2018 | Robert Royal
    Two New Statements and the Church’s Trust Deficit Two statements came out from the Vatican over the weekend, basically during the pause in the Synod for the Sunday observances. Both dealt with the McCarrick case, and were partly a reaction to the constant presence of that case and – indirectly – other abuse cases in synodal conversations about the Church and young people. That’s become a necessity because, as Sydney Archbishop Anthony Fisher put it last week, many people were harmed and lost trust when they were young; and “The Church has to be the safest possible place for a...

What spin. What abuse, what open threats. Typical of the Bergoglian Peronist regime. I can imagine the next response from  Viganò be ground-breaking and provide even more evidence of corruption of these prelates.

    As Catholic Scandal Unfolds, Pope Francis Looks Increasingly Blameworthy The recent publication of a devastating report on Pope Francis in the German news magazine Der Spiegel marks a new phase in the continuing crisis in the Catholic Church. The report (as yet unavailable in English) is entitled: “Thou shalt not lie: The silence of the shepherds.”Contradicting the widespread image of Pope Francis as a “reformer” concerned to expose clerical sexual abuses within his church and punish the offenders, the report reveals a pope who for years has been indifferent to the complaints of abuse survivors, and has surrounded himself with...

    October 3, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Cardinal Gerhard Müller has confirmed that the Vatican investigation into sexual abuse by Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor was not completed, but instead was stopped for lack of the Pope’s approval. The cardinal spoke with LifeSiteNews yesterday in Washington, D.C. while there to speak at the Napa Institute’s Conference on Authentic Catholic Reform. LifeSiteNews asked Cardinal Müller if Pope Francis had indeed halted the investigation into Cardinal Murphy-O’Connor, who passed away in 2017. Müller was until recently the Prefect for the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), the Vatican body tasked with investigating sex abuse...
