Francis: The Our Father induces Temptation
Pope Francis has said that the Lord’s Prayer should be changed, arguing that the translation used in many parts of the world, including the Italian and English versions, go against the teachings of the Church and Bible.

In the centuries-old recited prayer, followers of the Christian Faith call on God to “lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.”

Speaking to Italian broadcasters on December 7, Francis argued this was incorrect, saying, “It is not a good translation because it speaks of a God who induces temptation.”

Communion to Adulterers Promulgated as “Authentic Magisterium”

Communion to Adulterers Promulgated as Authentic Magisterium
If papal clarification was ever needed on the long-debated issue of the intended meaning of Amoris Laetitia chapter VIII, such clarification has now been provided for the Church at large.

Last week, Acta Apostolicae Sedis (AAS)—the Vatican’s organ for promulgating the Official Acts of the Apostolic See—published Pope Francis’ October 2016 letter to the bishops of Buenos Aires in which he praised their episcopal guidelines allowing divorced and civilly remarried Catholics to receive Holy Communion in some cases while living in a state of objective mortal sin.

Concerning these guidelines that allow “the possibility of access to the sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist” in “complex circumstances” where “limitations that lessen the responsibility and guilt” permit adulterous couples to continue in adultery, the pope said in his letter:

“Rosary on the Borders” December 12 to Protect America from Islamic Terrorism

Dec 2, 2017 — David Martin

Rosary on the Borders-- Poland
There will be a mass Rosary service throughout the United States on December 12, titled, “Rosary on the Coasts and Borders.” The intention of the Rosary will be “to ask Our Lady to save the U.S.A. from Islamic jihad, from the denial of the Christian Faith, and for an end of abortion.”

According to Patricia Lemmon, who is an organizer for the event, the Rosary crusade is inspired “100 percent” by the Rosary on the Borders in Poland, which took place in October this year.

“I am in constant admiration of Poland,” Patricia Lemmon told Life Site News. “Over and over again, [the Poles] show their allegiance to reality. Their pro-life laws and initiatives encouraging families to have children, supporting families when a Down syndrome child is expected, welcoming Christian refugees but barring (jihadist) incomers, these are a beacon of intelligence coupled with goodness in the midst of so much truly dark news out of dying secular western Europe.” (LifeSite News, Dec.1, 2017)

Deliver America from the infernal money-changers and give America back to America

Deliver America from the infernal money-changers and give America back to America
Mr. President:

As part of your tax reform, we the people think that tax money should go only to the essentials of building/repairing roads, bridges, the infrastructure, i.e. making America great again, and should not go to private interest groups, especially globalists and those of “green” orientation who enviously use our money to compete with us.

Advocates of Abortion, Euthanasia, Invited to Speak at the Vatican

Advocates of Abortion, Euthanasia, Invited to Speak at the Vatican
Since 2013, many Catholics have been in denial about Rome’s collusion with abortionists, despite the fact that notorious abortion advocates like Paul Ehrlich and Jeffrey Sachs have repeatedly been invited to speak at the Vatican.

Once again, several advocates of abortion and euthanasia were given a platform to voice their views at a two-day “end of life” conference co-hosted by the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy for Life on November 16-17. The conference was conjointly organized by the World Medical Association, which supposedly opposes euthanasia, the German Medical Association, and the Pontifical Academy for Life, but it unfortunately provided a forum for the enemies of life to advance their agenda.

Catholic Priest to be “excommunicated” if he doesn’t pledge fidelity to Francis’ agenda

Nov 21, 2017 — David Martin

Catholic Priest to be excommunicated, if he doesn't pledge fidelity to Francis' agenda
In a true spirit of heroism and love for the Church, Sicilian priest Don Minutella has put his neck on the line and said the Gospel truth for the sake of those who today are being tempted by the pontifical “operation of error to believe lying.” (2 Thess. 2:10) 

Don Minutella was sacked last June by the Vatican for his open criticism of Pope Francis’ teachings, and has been under an order of silence for the past nine months, but Rome is now giving him a chance to “vindicate” himself. Under the pretext of asking him to pledge fidelity to the pope, the Vatican is asking Don Minutella to deny his Catholic Faith, that is, to cease from his strict adherence to Church teaching and to accede to the perfidious teachings of Pope Francis, i.e. his blessing of adultery via Amoris Laetitia, his blessing of Luther, gays, Marxists, and anti-life globalists, and his incessant push to unite the Catholic Church with world religions. Rome has said that if Minutella doesn’t consent to their wish, he will receive “two excommunications.”

International Theological Commission Member Rebukes Pope for his Scandalous Teaching

Nov 2, 2017 — David Martin

Fr. Thomas Weinand
Fr. Thomas Weinandy, a prolific author and highly accomplished theologian and member of the Vatican’s International Theological Commission sent a letter to Pope Francis on July 31, in which he expressed deep concerns about the present pontificate. The letter was made public on November 1, the feast of All Saints.

While maintaining complete respect and charity for the person of the Pope, Fr. Weinandy criticized Francis for “demeaning” the importance of doctrine, and rebuked the manner in which he seems to censor and even mock the defenders of doctrine as “Pharisaic stone-throwers who embody a merciless rigorism.”

An Uncanonically Elected Pope?

Oct 21, 2017 — David Martin


With all the controversy that surrounded the election of Pope Francis upon the resignation of Pope Benedict in 2013, it seems that Catholics may have lost sight of a key element in this episode, namely, that Benedict XVI never resigned his papal office, but only the active exercise thereof.

On the eve of his resignation, he said: “Anyone who accepts the Petrine ministry no longer has any privacy. He belongs always and completely to everyone, to the whole Church… “The ‘always’ is also a “forever”—there can no longer be a return to the private sphere. My decision to resign the active exercise of the ministry does not revoke this.” (General Audience, February 27, 2013)

Amoris Laetitia: Conscience Recognizes that we can Break the Commandments

Oct 18, 2017 — David Martin

Yes, yes, I know what the Bible says about adultery. But what does Francis say?

There has been much controversy in recent months over Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia, and its hot-button topic that adulterers can be admitted to Communion without a prior commitment to amend their life.

By use of ambiguous wording, Amoris Laetitia insidiously argues that because of “concrete circumstances” and “concrete realities” (being hardened in sin) which supposedly limit freedom of the will, people living in adultery through cohabitation or illicit marriage could be guiltless and even “be living in God’s grace, can love and can also grow in the life of grace and charity, while receiving the Church’s help to this end.” (Paragraph 305)

U.N. globalists anticipate with glee any clash between you and North Korea

Sep 24, 2017 — David Martin

Mr. President:

The globalists are seeking to instigate worldwide terror with the design of eliciting worldwide support for an empowered United Nations, so let us not empower their design.

U.N. globalists anticipate with glee any clash between you and North Korea, as their plan is to have a global emergency that will justify their intervention as international “peace-keepers.” The U.N. would call upon the nations to comply with internationalist rule, thus fulfilling their plan to subjugate the nations to a central world authority whereby the sovereignty of each nation is relinquished in the name of world peace. It’s a stratagem to submerge us under a one-world government. Rocket-man and his global puppeteers are trying to tempt you into a fight, so beware.

At the same time, we can’t allow Kim Jong-brat to get away with murder, so, while maintaining a healthy show of military force, you should call upon nations to join you in a consolidated effort to deprive North Korea in every which way, i.e. no food, no supplies, no money, etc. Just make sure the U.N. is kept out of this. Peace loving nations would support and appreciate this approach, so here is where you can employ all your skill in wheeling and dealing. Gain their support for a peaceful solution, but I wouldn’t strike North Korea, because fighting with them will only strengthen the internationalist plan against America.

Francis Questions President Trump’s Pro-Life Views

Sep 12, 2017 — David Martin

Pope Francis on Monday called into question President Trump’s pro-life values when he told a reporter from Mexico that Trump’s decision to end the DACA program betrays his pro-life views. He said of Trump, “He presents himself as a pro-life man. If he is a good pro-lifer, he should understand that the family is the cradle of life.”

However, DACA is not a pro-life issue nor is it connected with pro-life, but is actually a pro-death issue, since it was enacted by pro-death advocate Barack Obama in June 2012 to keep and bring illegal immigrants into America for the purpose of inciting revolution and harming Americans. Though DACA was passed under the pretext of keeping families together, its true design was to encourage insurgence at the borders.

Francis empowers bishops to establish their own liturgical regulations

Sep 11, 2017 — David Martin

Pope Francis has issued a motu proprio Magnum Principium, a modification of Canon Law 838, which grants bishops’ conferences greater control over the translation of liturgical texts. This includes the power to make adaptations which the bishops deem appropriate for their regions. 

Until now, Canon 838 (§1) stated that “The direction of the sacred liturgy depends solely on the authority of the Church, namely, that of the Apostolic See.” Paragraph §2 said: “It is for the Apostolic See to order the liturgy of the universal Church,” but now the Apostolic See has the task of “recognizing adaptations approved under the law of the Episcopal Conference.” (§2) In other words, the power of the Curia is reduced from authorizing to approving texts that are generated by episcopal conferences.

The dubia surrounding Pope Francis’ election

Sep 7, 2017 — David Martin

With all the controversy that surrounded the election of Pope Francis upon the resignation of Pope Benedict in 2013, it seems that Catholics may have lost sight of a very key element of this episode, namely, that Benedict XVI never resigned his papal office, but only the active exercise thereof.

On the eve of his resignation, he said: “Anyone who accepts the Petrine ministry no longer has any privacy. He belongs always and completely to everyone, to the whole Church… “The ‘always’ is also a “forever”—there can no longer be a return to the private sphere. My decision to resign the active exercise of the ministry does not revoke this.” (General Audience, February 27, 2013)

According to these words, Benedict XVI remains pope, with no revocation of his office having occurred. According to Church law, a pope must give up “his office” for his resignation to be valid. (Canon 332) Pope Benedict clearly chose to retain his office “forever,” which means he is still pope, which means that Francis cannot be pope, since there cannot be two popes. The late Fatima expert Fr. Nicholas Gruner points this out in a rare video on Benedict XVI’s resignation. If Francis is the pope, then Benedict’s office is revoked, but Benedict insists it was not revoked.

Open Letter to President Trump: Immigration

Aug 11, 2017 — David Martin

Mr. President:

Concerning the new immigration bill to be deliberated by Congress when it returns from its August recess, it should be emphasized that immigration into the U.S. is a privilege, not a right. In the same way a stranger has no right to walk into somebody’s house without permission, so a foreigner has no right walking into America without permission from the government. This permission to migrants should be based most especially on evidence that they truly honor and love America.

The Revolution of Vatican II was Misinterpreted?

Jul 25, 2017 — David Martin

It is often voiced by conservatives disheartened by the changes in the Catholic Church that Vatican II was a good council, but that it was misinterpreted. If these good people were better informed as to what took place at the Council, they would never say any such thing. Though Vatican II started with the best resolves, it was hijacked in the opening session by rebel bishops because the pope had planned the Council without their advice and against their designs.

We gather that Cardinal Tisserant, the key draftsman of the 1962 Moscow-Vatican Treaty who presided at the opening session, was part of this plot to usurp the Vatican Council. According to Jean Guitton, the famous French academic, Tisserant had showed him a painting of himself and six others, and told him, “This picture is historic, or rather, symbolic. It shows the meeting we had before the opening of the Council when we decided to block the first session by refusing to accept the tyrannical rules laid down by John XXIII.” (Vatican II in the Dock, 2003)

Notorious Abortionist to Speak at Catholic Church in Italy

Jul 21, 2017 — David Martin

Abortionist Emma Bonino is proud of the 6,000,000 babies she is directly or indirectly responsible for killing since 1968, and remains an avid abortionist to this day. This is not to mention her continued rant as a political activist to promote divorce, homosexuality, transgenderism, gay-marriage, the abolition of the armed forces, the disbanding of NATO, the liberalization of porn laws, mandatory sex education, and the Communist insurgence of the west under the guise of immigration. No repentance whatsoever.

Yet, Pope Francis in 2016 told an interviewer for the Corriere della Sera that Bonino was “among the great ones of Italy,” and defended her on the grounds that she “thinks very differently from us.” He recommended “patience,” saying, “You have to look at people, what they do.”

Benedict XVI: The Barque of Peter is Sinking

Jul 19, 2017 — David Martin

The Church continues to lament the passing of Cardinal Meisner of Cologne, who was an outspoken opponent of Amoris Laetita which breaks with tradition by allowing divorced and civilly remarried people to receive Communion. Surprisingly, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI sent a letter of tribute to be read at Meisner’s funeral on July 15. In the letter he says:

“What particularly impressed me from my last conversations with the now passed Cardinal was the relaxed cheerfulness, the inner joy and the confidence at which he had arrived. We know that this passionate shepherd and pastor found it difficult to leave his post, especially at a time in which the Church stands in particularly pressing need of convincing shepherds who can resist the dictatorship of the spirit of the age and who live and think the faith with determination. However, what moved me all the more was that, in this last period of his life, he learned to let go and to live out of a deep conviction that the Lord does not abandon His Church, even if the boat has taken on so much water as to be on the verge of capsizing.”

Open Letter to President Trump

May 27, 2017 — David Martin

Mr. President:

With all due respect for the person of Pope Francis and the Petrine Office he holds, we urge you not to read the encyclical letter Laudato Si given to you by the pope during your recent Vatican visit, as it is a masterpiece of New Age deception which advocates a borderless one-world government under the governance of a “world political authority.” Its whole point is to place man in touch with his environment. It builds its bridges to the planet, not to Almighty God, and as such, cannot be instrumental in advancing world peace. 

The encyclical was actually written by the pope’s ghost writers Archbishop Victor Manuel Fernandez Guttierrez and Bishop Mario Toso for the purpose of spearheading the U.N. “Sustainable Development Goals” of making “Mother Earth” a safer place through population control (abortion). The encyclical’s vehement fight against man-made climate change has earned it enthusiastic acclaim from the very people [globalists] that have been battling you since the day you announced you were running for president.

Francis: Keepers of Doctrine are Fanatics

May 24, 2017 — David Martin

Solicitous concern over the purity of doctrine reflects the truest love of God and neighbor, since doctrine, as with any of the Ten Commandments, is not an ideal that may be watered down or dismissed to suit ones fancy, but an eternal command set in stone for man’s sanctification. In the same way a healthcare expert does not tolerate poison in the diet, so a true priest will never tolerate poison in the spiritual diet. It has to be pure, which means it has to be clear, without which it is poison.

But Pope Francis has now come out and slammed conservative Catholics who earnestly maintain that purity of doctrine be preserved. Concerning such people, the pope said in his Friday morning homily: “They are fanatics about things that are not clear, such as these fanatics who go about there, sowing discord in order to divide the Christian community.”

Attention President Trump:  May 24 Meeting with Pope Francis

May 16, 2017 — David Martin

Mr. President:

If part of your objective in meeting with the pope next week is to diplomatically establish common ground in such a way that he will appreciate your immigration policy and see you as an advocate of world peace, express your appreciation of how the the Catholic Church from the very beginning has always built a wall against moral corruption and built its bridge to Almighty God. Point out how this has always proved to be the path to true peace and how you are simply applying this in a political way. Thereby you will show respect for the Church he heads while providing a little nudge for him to return to the tradition of the Faith from which he has been dissenting.
