Feb 18, 2019 — David Martin

McCarrick LaicizationArchbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, the former Apostolic Nuncio to the United states, has publicly expressed his misgivings about the upcoming Vatican summit on clerical sexual-abuse this February 21-25.

In a brief essay issued in response to an invitation to participate in a National Catholic Register symposium on the upcoming summit, he says, “I am praying intensely for the success of the February summit” but laments that there is “no sign of a genuine willingness to attend to the real causes of the present situation.”

Viganò presents three critical questions, wherein he manifests his doubt over the likelihood of success at the summit.

To the President: Speak Out Against the Reproductive Health Act

To the President: Speak Out Against the Reproductive Health ActMr. President:

On January 22, 2019, the 46th Anniversary of Wade. vs. Roe, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law the historic “Reproductive Health Act,” which guarantees women the “fundamental right” to have an abortion until the birth of the baby, for any reason, and with all criminal aspects eradicated from the books. We now have legalized infanticide in America, and this could be leading to that time when women will be given the option to “try their baby out” for a week before deciding whether or not to keep it or return it to the surgeons for ‘termination.’

Francis: It's better to be atheist than a daily church-goer
Pope Francis who has often said that we should never judge has unleashed one of his most brutal judgments against regular church-goers. During his General Audience of January 2, he condemned Catholics who go to church every day but who “go on hating” their fellow man. He said it “is better” that they not go.

“How many times have we witnessed the scandal of those who go to church and spend all day there or attend every day, and later go on hating others or speaking ill of people. This is a scandal,” the pontiff said.

Another Nod to Sin
It appears that the Youth Sin-Nod 2018 has turned out to be another Nod to Sin. A pope wearing a rainbow cross? It’s no wonder that the LGBT community is doing somersaults.

Sep 28, 2018 — David Martin

Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò
After a month of silence, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò has issued a new and extraordinary testimony in defense of his previous testimony of August 22, wherein Pope Francis and 32 high-ranking Church officials were implicated in the sexual abuse of minors.

In addition to courageously reiterating his charge that the pope had made Cardinal McCarrick “one of his principal agents in governing the Church” when he knew full well “how perverse and evil McCarrick was in his intentions and actions,” he goes on to reveal that Francis played a key role in covering up or blocking investigations into other priests and prelates, including Fr. Julio Grassi, Fr. Mauro Inzoli, and Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor who orchestrated the St Gallen Mafia effort to get Francis elected.

Vatican Betrays Chinese Underground Church with Provisional Agreement
On Saturday, September 22, the Holy See signed a “provisional agreement” with the People’s Republic of China on the appointment of bishops. The Vatican press office stated that as part of the “comprehensive deal,” Pope Francis has decided “to readmit to full ecclesial communion the remaining ‘official’ bishops, ordained without Pontifical Mandate.”

For the record, the names of the ‘official’ bishops are H.E. Mgr Joseph Guo Jincai, H.E. Mgr Joseph Huang Bingzhang, H.E. Mgr Paul Lei Shiyin, H.E. Mgr Joseph Liu Xinhong, H.E. Mgr Joseph Ma Yinglin, H.E. Mgr Joseph Yue Fusheng, H.E. Mgr Vincent Zhan Silu and H.E. Mgr Anthony Tu Shihua, OFM.

Francis’ Emergency Meeting Ignores Vigano’s Indictment against Him and 32 Church Officials
On Thursday a delegation of U.S. bishops met with Pope Francis at the Vatican to discuss the ensuing sexual-abuse crisis in America, and while the USCCB issued a statement saying that the bishop’s meeting with Francis “was a lengthy, fruitful, and good exchange,” the matter of Cardinal Vigano’s 11-page testimony detailing cover-up allegations against Francis and 32 other high-ranking church officials—the very crux of the issue—was never addressed, nor has the Vatican fulfilled its promise to offer “clarifications” on Vigano’s indictment.

Vigano’s Stalwart Exhortation to Clean House

Vigano’s Stalwart Exhortation to Clean House
In August the Church was rocked by Cardinal Carlo Maria Vigano’s 11-page testimony exposing Pope Francis’ cover-up and complicity in Cardinal McCarrick’s predatory behavior with young seminarians.

Originally, it was never Vigano’s plan to disclose the matter to the press, but Viganò explains in his statement that because “the corruption has now reached the very top of the Church’s hierarchy, my conscience dictates that I reveal those truths regarding the heart-breaking case of the Archbishop Emeritus of Washington, D.C., Theodore McCarrick, which I came to know in the course of the duties entrusted to me by St. John Paul II, as Delegate for Pontifical Representations, from 1998 to 2009, and by Pope Benedict XVI, as Apostolic Nuncio to the United States of America, from October 19, 2011 until the end of May 2016.”  

St. Gallen Mafia and the Present Pontificate

St. Gallen Mafia and the Present Pontificate
The late Jesuit Cardinal Carlo Martini was a great enemy of the Catholic Church who many feared would overtake the Papal Throne as an anti-pope had Pope John Paul II met with an untimely death. Martini is well remembered for the way he attacked John Paul II in the press and called for his resignation because he didn’t support a woman’s “right” to have an abortion.

For obvious reasons Martini likewise despised Cardinal Ratzinger [now Benedict XVI], though he was very good friends with the Jesuit cardinal Jorge Bergoglio [now Pope Francis], and fearing that Ratzinger might become the next pope Martini set up “St Gallen Mafia” in an attempt to prevent Ratzinger from being elected pope and to try to get Bergoglio elected instead.

Donald, Ivanka Trump

Are you deliberately attempting to discredit the good work of your father?  Regardless of how you intended your televised comment about the separation of families being the “low point” of your White House experience, the public will most certainly take this as a slam against his immigration policy.

“Saint” Angelelli?

Saint Angelelli?
There was Helder Camara, now there is Bishop Angelelli, a political activist who engaged in the Marxist politics of defending the people instead of defending the Gospel. He worked closely with other socialist-formed bishops from Latin America, including Manuel Larrain (Chile), Helder Camara (Brazil), Ramon Bogarin (Paraguay), Marcos McGrath (Panama) and Leonidas Proaño (Ecuador), known for his promotion of Marxist “Liberation Theology.”

Francis' Tweet Revised
On Wednesday, Pope Francis tweeted these words in apparent support for Alfie Evans who has been sentenced to death by the medical authorities in England.

“It is my sincere hope that everything necessary may be done in order to continue compassionately accompanying little Alfie Evans, and that the deep suffering of his parents may be heard. I am praying for Alfie, for his family and for all who are involved.”

Apostolic Exhortation or Aggravation?

Apostolic Exhortation or Aggravation?
In an apparent move to rebut conservative allegations that the pope has been denying tenets of the Faith—a crisis that culminated during Holy Week with the pope’s alleged denial of hell and the immortality of the soul—Pope Francis on April 8 issued his newest Apostolic Exhortation “Gaudete et Exsultate” (Rejoice and Be Glad), in which he bewails the “defamation and slander” being spread online by traditional Roman Catholic journalists and bloggers.

In this newest document, the pope repeatedly mentions Satan, but with the implication that tradition-minded journalists and clergy who challenge his ideas are guided by the devil. He speaks of the “wiles of the devil”, “the spirit of the devil”, “keeping the devil at bay”, how to “banish the devil”, and “snares and temptations of the devil,” in apparent reference to “defamation and slander” that have “become commonplace” on the Catholic blogosphere.

Historic Rome Conference Issues “Final Declaration” of Immutable Catholic Truths

Historic Rome Conference Issues Final Declaration of Immutable Catholic Truths
On April 7, 2018, a historic conference was held in Rome to address the debacle of error and confusion that has plagued the Church since the election of Pope Francis. The hot-button issue of course has been the Vatican’s sanctioning of adultery by sometimes allowing divorced and civilly “remarried” Catholics to receive Holy Communion, something that Francis himself promulgated as “authentic magisterium” on June 5, 2017 through the Vatican’s Acta Apostolicae Sedis.

In refutation of this and other related errors that have been advanced in the name of the Church’s Magisterium, the conference issued a Final Declaration in the name of its participants, wherein the authors restated, in six points, the Church’s immutable teaching on the indissolubility of marriage, adultery, absolute moral norms, subjective judgment of “conscience,” the need for contrition to receive valid sacramental absolution, and the fact that “remarried” divorcees living in adultery may not receive Holy Communion.

Cardinal Burke: Pope Francis is increasing the confusion in the Church
Cardinal Burke, who is a member of the Apostolic Signatura, has publicly lamented Pope Francis’ denial of hell and the immortality of the soul as allegedly expressed last week during his interview with Eugenio Scalfari. The Vatican has neither repudiated the “erroneous and even heretical ideas” attributed to Francis, nor has it done anything to reassert the Church’s teachings on hell for the sake of Catholics everywhere that have been scandalized by this.

A Pontifical Attack on the Passion?
The latest pontifical attack on Church teaching occurs in the heart of Holy Week just as Catholics throughout the world are focusing on the Passion and Resurrection of Christ.

On Wednesday, March 28, Pope Francis was interviewed again by his long-time friend and favorite interviewer Eugenio Scalfari, who heads Italy’s La Repubblica daily. Scalfari, an atheist, asked the pope about his theories regarding creation and eternal life.

More Evidence Surfaces About Fake Vatican Letter
More evidence has surfaced concerning the forged letter of Benedict XVI which the Vatican had deceitfully used to refute conservative Catholics who question Pope Francis’ theological formation and teaching.

To recap, Vatican communications director Msgr. Dario Vigano had attempted to elicit Benedict’s endorsement of an 11-volume set he co-authored on the theology of Pope Francis, whereupon the former pontiff replied with a letter saying he would not be able to offer any support for the work.

Vatican Advances Fake Letter to turn Conservatives Against Church Tradition
What can be called an insidious attempt to use Benedict XVI to advance Pope Francis’ radical post-conciliar agenda has been exposed.

Early in the week the Catholic world had been abuzz over a letter sent by Benedict XVI to Vatican communications director Monsignor Dario Vigano, in which the former pontiff purportedly criticized Church conservatives for their “foolish prejudice” in not recognizing that “Pope Francis is a man of profound philosophical and theological formation.”

AP now reports that the Vatican admitted on Wednesday that it digitally manipulated a photo of the letter sent out to the media to rebut critics of Pope Francis, who allege that his teaching represents a departure from Pope Benedict’s, and from the Tradition of the Catholic Church.

Timely Reflections on the Third Secret

Timely Reflections on the Third Secret
With the crisis of faith ever intensifying, it behooves the Catholic hierarchy to reflect on a historic statement made forty-one years ago by Pope Paul VI. On the occasion of the 60th Anniversary of the Virgin Mary’s last apparition at Fatima, the pope said:

“The tail of the devil is functioning in the disintegration of the Catholic World. The darkness of Satan has entered and spread throughout the Catholic Church even to its summit. Apostasy, the loss of the faith, is spreading throughout the world and into the highest levels within the Church.” (October 13, 1977)

Pope Francis using respected charity foundation to bail out corrupt medical institute

Pope Francis using respected charity foundation to bail out corrupt medical institute
Last summer, Pope Francis asked the U.S. based Papal Foundation to direct $25 million to the Istituto Dermopatico dell’Immacolata (IDI), a dermatological hospital in Rome that has been plagued with corruption and financial scandal for years.

Founded in 1990, the Papal Foundation has a noble record of assisting popes in helping the poor in under-developed countries. Therefore, the $25-million grant requested by Francis has lay members of the Foundation up in arms, seeing that the money is going to the corruption-plagued, Church-owned dermatological institute accused of money laundering and which has liabilities of over $1 billion USD – an amount larger than the national debt of many nations.
