The week ahead and the combox
Tue, 17 Jul 2018 18:28:44 +0000
I’ll keep this brief: First, I am traveling this week and spending a bit of (all too rare) time with my family; wife, kids and grandkids. Way overdue. I may or may not post anything new until next week. Secondly: I appreciate the passion of our commenters, but I’m literally a hair away from shutting the combox down altogether. Any number of times, I’ve posted here asking commenters to keep their comments on point and brief. Two simple requests. I do not allow off topic comments as much as I have no time or desire to police them. Lastly: There more »
Will the new SSPX Superior General strike an old tone?
Thu, 12 Jul 2018 16:51:48 +0000
On 11 July 2018, the Priestly Society of St. Pius X (FSSPX) elected a new Superior General – Fr. Davide Pagliarani, until then, the District Superior of Italy. Based on its public commentary of the past two years or so, it is unfortunately difficult to say what the SSPX considers its greatest challenges in the present day. I’ve written rather extensively in this space about the mixed and contradictory messages that have been coming from the SSPX in recent years. I won’t repeat those concerns here other than to say that a sincere seeker of truth today may very well more »
False prophets and evil fruits: An objective observation
Tue, 10 Jul 2018 17:37:48 +0000
It is not infrequently that the Mass propers call to mind the present situation in the Church in some way or another, but this past Sunday (the Seventh Sunday of Pentecost) this was the case, at least for me, more pointedly so than certain others. It began at the Collect: O God, whose providence faileth not in its designs, we humbly entreat Thee: put from us all that might be harmful, and give us all that will be profitable. Is there any so harmful in our day, not just to the faithful, but to the world at large, as the more »
Bergoglian eco-mania just a means to an end
Fri, 06 Jul 2018 20:28:27 +0000
Earlier today, His Humbleness addressed “The International Conference Marking the 3rd Anniversary of Laudato Si’,” encouraging those in attendance to hear “the increasingly desperate cries of the earth and its poor” and to meet “the urgent need to respond to the Encyclical’s call for change, for an ecological conversion.” Ecological conversion… A load of Bergoglian garbage, you say? Well, yes, but it’s not his garbage, per se; Francis (as he likes to be called) is just the trash man du jour as he himself acknowledged later in the address when he gave credit to John Paul the Great Ecumenist who more »

The masquerade has reached midnight
Tue, 03 Jul 2018 13:06:06 +0000
As reported by Vatican News, the German bishops have published guidelines “on sharing Communion” with Protestants that are married to a Catholic. A statement published on the website of the German Bishops’ Conference declares: We  are  concerned  to  provide  spiritual  assistance  for those addressing questions of conscience in individual cases who receive pastoral  care  for  inter-denominational  married  couples  who  have  a  grave spiritual  need  to  receive  the  Eucharist. This one sentence confirms precisely the bottom line that we identified in early May; those favoring so-called “intercommunion” – Jorge Bergoglio chief among them – simply do not believe that the Blessed more »
The “Uncle Teddy” McCarrick Case
Fri, 29 Jun 2018 13:53:25 +0000
By Randy Engel Four Generations of Clerical Sexual Predators When is Enough, Enough? Introduction It’s been an “open secret,” for almost 100 years, that the American hierarchy has been plagued by homosexual/pederast predators within its ranks. That’s the bad news. The good news is that the current debacle over the revelations of homosexual tricks turned over by Cardinal “call-me-Uncle Teddy” McCarrick has provided an albeit totally unexpected but welcome opportunity for the handful of decent prelates who still have their religious and moral miters on straight to demonstrate to the long-suffering Catholic laity that they are both willing and able more »
Propose an inch, he’ll grant ’em a foot
Thu, 28 Jun 2018 13:53:06 +0000
Last week, His Humbleness, speaking aboard Heretic One, gave sweeping “papal” (if you will allow) approval for intercommunion with Protestants of all stripes; going well beyond simply inviting those who are married to a Catholic as proposed by the German bishops. The broadness of this Bergoglian blessing appears to have escaped the attention of most other commentators, at least insofar as I have read, but it is a crucially important signal for what lies ahead. There’s an old saying concerning authority and leniency, “Give ‘em and inch; they’ll take a foot.”  In the Church of today, the opposite appears to more »
Tales from the Humanae Vitae Diaries – No. 1
Wed, 27 Jun 2018 14:33:59 +0000
By Randy Engel Planned Parenthood Wrote the John Rock ‘Pill’ Book Introduction This new occasional series titled “Tales from the Humanae Vitae Diaries” is based on my upcoming two-volume book set on Population Control and the Catholic Church, and the ill-fated Birth Control Commission of Pope Paul VI. Although, my research on both books was completed five years ago, I have yet to put them into final form for publication, which, God permitting, will be in early 2020. In the meantime, July 25, 2018,  which marks the 50th anniversary of Humanae Vitae, will soon be upon us, and I’m certain more »
BREAKING: Underbelly of trad Catholic media exposed
Tue, 26 Jun 2018 16:12:24 +0000
This past weekend, the big news story was that the owner of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, VA, Stephanie Wilkinson, had asked Whitehouse Press Secretary Sarah Sanders to leave her establishment because her boss is “inhumane and unethical.” To which Mrs. Sanders politely replied, “That’s fine, I’ll go.” According to Washington Post reporter Avi Selk, who spoke with Wilkinson: Sanders went back to the table, picked up her things and walked out. The others at her table had been welcome to stay, Wilkinson said. But they didn’t, so the servers cleared away the cheese plates and glasses. Apparently, Sanders more »
