Vatican Standing by its Decision to Award Dutch Abortion Advocate
Early this month, Catholics throughout the world were outraged upon learning that Pope Francis awarded abortion advocate Lilianne Ploumen with the Pontifical Order of St. Gregory, an honor traditionally conferred upon those who demonstrate outstanding service to the Holy See or to humanity. Ploumen, who boasted in a video broadcast that she had received a “high distinction from the Vatican” was granted the award in June 2017 when she assisted the Dutch Royals in their visit to the Holy Father.

In the wake of conservative backlash, the Vatican is not backing down from awarding Ploumen with the Pontifical honor, but is doubling down on the action. A Vatican official recently told NCR reporter Edward Pentin that this was “a very traditional procedure” for such a “historic occasion” and was really meant as a way of “honoring the king.” If that’s the case, why didn’t the king get the award?


Is Peter Disoriented about the United Nations?

Is Peter Disoriented about the United Nations?
On Monday Pope Francis delivered the annual papal address to the diplomatic corps—the Vatican’s ambassadors from over 180 nations. His speech focused on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations 70 years ago this past December 10. The pope said, “At a distance of seventy years, it is painful to see how many fundamental rights continue to be violated today.”

The problem is that the United Nations is not about fundamental rights, but about the rights to revolt from God. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted in 1948 was satanic in agenda, in that it was all about instigating rebellion against moral authority and initiating a new era that would take away our fundamental human rights, especially the right to life. It was about empowering those who advance the destruction of Christianity through every form of moral corruption, including witchcraft, sodomy, pedophilia, and drug infiltration, and who from the beginning have determined to “marginalize” Christians and infringe upon their religious liberty.


Jim Caviezel: We must be ‘warriors’ ready to risk our lives for the Gospel

Jim Caviezel: We must be 'warriors' ready to risk our lives for the Gospel
It appears that Mel Gibson’s epic film The Passion of the Christ has made a rare and genuine Catholic disciple out of actor Jim Caviezel, who played the part of Christ in the movie.

Speaking at a gathering of Catholic college students in Chicago this past Wednesday, Caviezel said that we have to be “warriors, ready to risk their reputations, their names, even our very lives, to stand for the truth.” He said that to be with Christ we must stand apart from the world and bring the sword of truth, without compromise, without making concessions. “Set yourselves apart from this corrupt generation,” he challenged those in attendance. “Be saints. You weren’t made to fit in. You were born to stand out.”


Benedict’s Papality Continues

Benedict's Papality Continues
With all the controversy that surrounded the election of Pope Francis upon the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI 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)

From these words it is evident that there has been no revocation of Benedict XVI’s office. According to Church law, a pope must give up “his office” for his resignation to be valid. (Canon 332) Benedict XVI 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. If Francis is the pope, then Benedict’s office is revoked, but Benedict insists it was not revoked. https://vimeo.com/228833627

Cardinal hosts LGBT service in cathedral featuring notorious drag queen
Here is more on the latest round of criminal acts being committed in the name of the Church. It should be known that Cardinal Schönborn who conducted this non-denominational gay service is pro-abortion. For years he has been the terror of Vienna pro-lifers.

More and more the Vatican is being used to advance anti-life and gay issues. Last week, they set up a “nativity scene” (presepio crib) at the Vatican which displays a homo-erotic image and political props to advance fake love of the poor.


Which each passing day, we get a clearer understanding of the two lightning bolts which providentially struck the dome of St. Peter’s just hours after Benedict XVI announced his resignation on February 11, 2013. Clearly, God was angry over the debacle that would ensue.

Francis: The Our Father “Induces Temptation”

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?

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)
