Don't worry, Tommy, all will be well. We'll hold a summit on the importance of good Catholic media like your Salt and Light and the fishwrap. I protect my friends. Just ask Donny.
In 2015, Fr. Thomas Rosica went after Canadian blogger David Domet (Vox Cantoris) threatening a lawsuit because he didn't like the truth being exposed. What an avalanche of bad publicity for poor Fr. Rosica. The lawsuit threat soon disappeared, but Rosica remained at his post as papal advisor and media guru for English in the Vatican press office.
The more we learn about him, the more despicable this Vatican mouthpiece appears!
Rosica runs Salt and Light Catholic Media Foundation based in Canada, but his salt is flat and his light is darkness. Let's look at a few fact about the fraud in a Roman collar from John Zmirak's article at The Stream.
Islam isn't hard to understand once a person has it figured out and since I have it figured out I will explain it to you.
ALLAH Allah is Lucifer. Islam is the established religion of Lucifer where he sets himself up to be worshiped as the one true God in place of the Holy Trinity. And Muhammad is Lucifer's prophet. Muhammad's "Gabriel" isn't St Gabriel the Archangel as Muhammad was fooled into thinking. Muhammad's "Gabriel" was Lucifer making himself appear as St Gabriel the Archangel. Lucifer, appearing as Gabriel, beat the terrified Muhammad into submission in the cave on Hira. He literally beat the Quran into Muhammad. That's where the word Islam comes from - it means submission. Submission to Lucifer. Once we zero in on the demonic origins of Islam in the Cave on Hira,the rest easily falls into place like pieces of a puzzle locked together. No doubt remains that Lucifer conned Muhammad into being his prophet. This has been known simply for ages - from the beginning of Islam when Muhammad was still living. Jews, Christians, and pagan Arabs knew this 1400 years ago.

As years go by I get angrier and
angrier over this because I look at the published distribution of the funds and
I rarely see a single thing I would choose to gladly write a check for.
We have contributed thousands in
the past, but in the last couple of years our commitment to it has shrunk significantly.
This year it will be less than $50. I think it is important for the actual number of
people to remain high and the dollar amount to shrink, so the bishop knows clearly we
the faithful are still fulfilling our "duty" but will no longer fund
a diocese that no longer fulfills the needs of the Catholics in the pews.
To care or to kill: what does your medical directive say?
My sister is in the hospital. She has pneumonia, the antibiotic-resistant form. Not too surprising really
since she was a 40-year smoker and has compromised lungs. She's very sick, but not terminally ill. In fact, amazingly, she does NOT have lung cancer and has a long history of coming back from illness.
Fortunately, Jeanne has a power of attorney (me) who is well-informed on end-of-life issues. I know that the MOST and POLST forms (identifying patients wishes for treatment) can be life-threatening. They are being used to pressure vulnerable patients into choosing non-treatment. I knew it was happening, but got a graphic example of it this week with my sister's situation.
Conspicuously missing from the program is any major address by Cardinal Sean O’Malley, the chairman of the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors. It was shocking that Cardinal O’Malley was not included in the preparatory commission for the event; it is still more astonishing that he is not listed among the featured speakers.
Cardinals Burke and Brandmüller insist that Church leaders must address not only the protection of young people from abuse, but a “much greater crisis” in the Church. They point to homosexual influence that “has been spread within the Church, promoted by organized networks and protected by a climate of complicity and a conspiracy of silence.”
Several of the suggestions are on the theme of seminary formation of priests and the proper penalties for priests or religious who commit abuse. [but completely ignore the necessity to screen out homosexuals from the priesthood #16, #17, #18]
Editor's Comment: Archbishop Carlo Vigano sent the message below to the bishops gathering for the sex abuse summit on February 21st. It was the summit's opening day and also the feast of St. Peter Damian, the great warrior against the depraved practices of homosexual clergy in the Middle Ages.
I'm posting this on the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter. These two feasts back to back emphasize the responsibility of Pope Francis to exercise authority over the crisis in the Church which is, in fact, a homosexual crisis. Ignoring that fact endangers the credibility of the hierarchy and illustrates a lack of transparency that puts to the lie all the fine words coming from the Vatican about their intent to resolve the crisis.
These feasts also coincide with new details coming out about Cardinal McCarrick and his "missing years" when he was apparently being groomed by the Communist party to become a Church insider attacking the faith. If you've read Bella Dodd's School of Darkness, you know full well that a Communist strategy was to plant agents in Catholic seminaries to undermine and corrupt the Church and destroy her authority to be a powerful witness in the world. And how effectively they did it!
Following close on the heels of the suicide of victims of clerical sex abuse, is the tragedy of Catholic priests and religious (male and female) involved in homosexuality and pederasty who take their own lives. The rising tide of suicide among clerics, especially those involved in the sexual abuse of minors and vulnerable adults has become a serious problem not only for the Catholic Church in America, but also abroad including Ireland, Australia. Belgium and Poland.
Editor's note: Last November the pope told the USCCB not to take any substantive action on the sex abuse crisis because he had scheduled the summit in Rome. The summit, being hyped as a serious look at the problem, seems to be just one more stage production to create the impression that the Vatican is taking the problem seriously and actually doing something about it. Don't hold your breath. So far the press conferences indicate that the real problem (sodomite behavior which includes clergy homosexual abuse of minors, clergy homosexual abuse of young adults, especially seminary students, and consensual clergy homosexual sodomy between adults.) The only issue being addressed at the summit is the abuse of minors. And Blase Cupich, a master spinmeister, is continuing the cover up. When you read the papal schedule below, note how almost nothing is being said or done about what can only be described as the major Church crisis of our day. The pope has time to fly around the world, visit art galleries, attend interfaith meetings, and babble on and on about whatever; but dealing with the sex abuse crisis is hardly on his radar screen. The silence of the shepherd for his poor little slaughtered lambs in the womb and for the victims of clergy sex abuse (many of whom have committed suicide) is appalling!
POPE FRANCIS FIDDLES
WHILE THE ROMAN CHURCH IS BURNING…BURNING MAD
by James M. Thunder
Part 2: Has the Pope Abandoned
His Post? Has He Been Fiddling?
14-year-old Brian Teeman, sex abuse victim of Msgr. Thomas O'Brien shot himself in November 1983. Will the bishops at the summit address the relationship between clergy abuse and suicide during their summit?
Abuse Victims and Clerical Suicide —
A Study of the Toxic Legacy of Clerical Molestation
February 21-24, 2019, Pope Francis will convene an international “summit” on clerical sexual abuse and the
protection of minors (and vulnerable adults) in the Church in the New Synod
Hall in Rome. The meeting will focus on three particular areas —
responsibility, accountability and transparency. It will include plenary
sessions, working groups, moments of common prayer and listening to
testimonies, a penitential liturgy and a final Eucharistic celebration. The plenary
sessions with be directed by the Italian Jesuit, Father Federico Lombardi, former
Director of the Vatican Press Office from 2006 to 2010.
Since Cupich promotes homosexuality, homosexuality surely can't be a "cause" of the crisis, can it? And really, the crisis is over! "We've dropped dramatically the number" of minor abuse victims. It's all about "opportunity" not homosexuality. (Oh...and we just won't address "age-appropriate" consensual sex among clergy even when it involves superiors pressuring inferiors for sexual favors.) As for the idea that high level clerics have enabled and covered up the abuse. Horrors! That is all only a "hypothesis" and hypotheses have to be proven.
Just a hypothesis, Your Excellency, really? There is so much evidence of magisterial cover-up it boggles the mind that you could make that claim with a straight face. Well, we are getting what we expected from this latest Vatican circus aren't we. The abuse crisis will be spun as a crisis of clericalism and opportunity. Think the laity will buy it? Or have the suckers finally pulled the curtain back on the fraudulent show and its showman-in-chief?
...and it's no wonder the pope said to lower your expectations! As you read the program for the sex summit at the end of the post, note the 3 hour lunch breaks. Must be hard to find food in Rome! And then they come back for a 45 minute presentation and...what next?...a 20 minute coffee break! Guess they need time to walk around after that big lunch so they don't fall asleep listening to the riveting talks by folks like Cardinal Marx, a one-man Church wrecking ball. Really, folks, all indications are that this is one more game that pretends to be addressing an issue while sweeping the real problem under the rug. And it begins with Cupich, a major organizer of this smoke-blowing summit.
One Mad Mom is hot over this ridiculous event and really pegs it when she writes:
Sanders is running for president, again.I
listened to his announcement speech in this video and it is my impression that
he is the most dangerous person to seek public office by election since Adolf
Hitler.Here’s why I think so.He believes his ascendency is at the right
moment in history.His time has come.
Cupich, the great showman, will be running the summit. Will it be the "greatest show on earth?"
Editor's comment: As the meeting on the sex abuse of minors begins today in Rome, consider the state of the Church and the loss of credibility among our clerical leaders. There are several troubling facts about the summit. Limiting the focus of the meeting to the abuse of minors is only half the story allowing the continued pretense that the issue is "pedophilia," the abuse of pre-pubescent children. It has ALWAYS been about pederasty, i.e., homosexual abuse. Blase Cupich has already announced that ONLY the abuse of minors will be discussed. So seminarian abuse and "age appropriate" sodomy between clerics is not on the table. Sadly, the Vatican seems to have no intention of addressing or cleaning up the real problem. The most obvious signal is that those organizing and running this meeting are, in fact, the problem. To have Blase Cupich, a champion of homosexuality, and others of his ilk in charge is surely an illustration of the saying, "The fox is guarding the hen house." The timeline of events described by today's guest illustrates exactly how much smoke emanates from the Vatican spin machine. Consider Cupich's "rabbit hole" comment. These men are clueless about the anger, the "burning mad" anger, of the laity, a righteous anger that calls out to heaven for justice!
Editor's comment: As the Rome meeting on the sex abuse crisis begins tomorrow, it's important to emphasize that the bishops must properly address the foundational root of the problem. They plan to focus solely on the abuse of minors. Why? Because ignoring the abuse of non-minors sweeps the homosexual nature of the problem under the rug. The language emphasized throughout the abuse crisis has been "pedophilia" when, in fact, most of the abuse involved older adolescents and legal adult seminarians. Catholics will know the meeting is a smokescreen if this continues, that the hierarchy are spinning a tale "told by an idiot full of sound and fury and signifying nothing." What a tragedy for the Church, especially the Church in the United States. No honesty, no transparency, no solution.
The soap opera continues on Thursday with the opening of the four-day summit on clerical sex abuse. The fact that its announced focus is abuse of minors, a horrendous part of the picture but only part of the picture, is seriously problematic. Clerics engaged in consensual homosexual lust or superiors who pressure their underlings to participate in immoral acts need to be exposed. The root of the crisis no matter the age of the victims is pederasty, i.e, same sex (homosexual) acts.
Michael Matt of The Remnant is in Rome and will be reporting on the meeting. Stay tuned.
In the video at the end of this post, Michael Matt exposes the connections between the secular efforts to bring about a one world order and the infiltration of the Church by that same "spirit of the antichrist." It's well worth the 20 minutes spent watching.
I'm re-reading 1984 at present and it is chilling to realize how close we are to the reign of Big Brother vs. the reign of Christ the King. When you hear the expression, "the brotherhood of man," ask yourself what those who call for this brotherhood of "love" really have in mind. In the world of 1984, language was inverted and often meant the exact opposite. The Ministry of Love was the organization responsible for torturing and murdering those who committed "thoughtcrime," "facecrime," and refused to embrace "doublespeak" which required believing two opposite ideas simultaneously. At the Ministry of Truth, lies abounded. History was altered daily to fit the policy of the moment. Isn't this what we are seeing from Democrats on a regular basis? As the 1984 mottos stated, "War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, and Ignorance is Strength."
Catholic NY governor Andrew Cuomo celebrates passage of legislation allowing murder of babies in the womb through birth and beyond!
Editor's comment: In 1077 Pope Gregory VII excommunicated King Henry IV stripping him of his right to rule the Holy Roman Empire and releasing his vassals from their obligation of service? Why? Because Henry demanded the right to name bishops. (Hmm...does this sound like the current situation in China?) Henry, fearing loss of power, went to Canossa in winter, waited three days to see the pope, and then walked barefoot through the snow to meet him and beg for forgiveness. Since then a "walk to Canossa" has come to mean a humiliation. It also indicates that controversy between Church and state is nothing new. James Thunder gives us a modern situation that is a Canossa moment. Will the hierarchy of the Church in the United States take any action to address the horrifying attacks on life? Or will it be the hierarchy bending their knees to the state out of fear of losing the Almighty tax dollar? How will our bishops respond to these evil attacks on the unborn popping up like poison mushrooms all over our beloved country?
I want to
refer you to the Encyclical Letter of His Holiness Pope Leo XIII on
Freemasonry, titled Humanum Genus.I would have linked that title to TAN
books, which is the publisher of my own copy, but their webpage doesn’t
recognize the title anymore.In fact
they sadly are not selling anything prior to Vatican II, (that I could find)
but you will find it on Amazon for about $3.00.
You may be
thinking, “I could care less about Freemasonry, so why would I want this?”I’ll tell you why.In the last couple of weeks Pope Francis and
Freemasonry have been openly discussed in the same breath.Up to now people have merely whispered about
it.If there ever were a time you NEEDED
TO KNOW about this subject, it is NOW.
Humanum Genus, written in 1884, makes it very
clear that Freemasonry is a not a generic term but a very real
organization, but one which has many others that fall in line with it,
that do the bidding of Freemasonry, and which are in fact linked to it in ways
only those at the top of some organizations are allowed to know.
Let us all pray for the mighty prince of perversion. He is, at this moment facing a cold reality like Cardinal Wolsey who died the banished lackey of King Henry VIII. As he lay dying, Wolsey showed signs of repentance. Let us pray that Teddy McCarrick does the same:
On 29th November 1530, Cardinal Wolsey died at Leicester Abbey while travelling to London to be tried for high treason. He’d been suffering from dysentery for a couple of weeks but his health had declined by 26th November and when he arrived at Leicester Abbey he told the Father Abbott “I ame come hether to leave my bones among you”.
Trio of Church scoundrels -- great friends of the Francis!
Sadly, many sayings from the past have disappeared from common usage. And yet so many express the truth in graphic ways. "One bad apple can spoil the whole barrel." sent a clear message that spending time with a "bad apple" was likely to result in rotten behavior rubbing off. Not that a "bad apple" can't change, but, until he does, the safest strategy to avoid rottenness is to keep your distance.
My mom also used to say, "Show me your friends and I'll tell you who you are." and "Birds of a feather flock together." I thought of that today when I read this post from OnePeterFive about the new honor for another gay-advancing cardinal, Kevin Farrell, Prefect of the Dicastery for the Laity, Family and Life in Rome.
...lest we forget while plied with perversion, deviance and filth where we cannot tell a man from a woman anymore. Transgender women are men pretending to be women and transgender men are women who have mutilated their body to look like men. Then there's sodomy and homosexuality and lesbianism and bi and trans, asexual and gender fluid. Vile drag queens and drag kings. This is the culture of death along with men and women having babies and killing them. Let's refresh our minds. Here's what we were made to be - a man and a woman. Male and female. Feminine and masculine. Him and her. He and she. Femininity and masculinity. She is so lovely. So beautiful and sweet. So FEMININE. He is powerful, handsome, strong and gentle. So MASCULINE. I want them to get married and have lots of babies and live happily ever after. Their love for each other and God will get them through the joys and sorrows known as the culture of life.
Let's summarize the situation. Immaculata Elementary School in Durham invited a lesbian City Council member, Vernetta Alston, to speak during black history month. Alston is "married" to her lesbian partner. She backs positions that are "intrinsically evil" and in direct opposition to Church teaching. Janet was contacted by a concerned parent and entered the fray with a post calling for people to contact the parish and the diocese to rescind the invitation which never should have been made in the first place. The pastor says he didn't know about it. If that's true, he needs to rethink his government of the parish and protection of the children from scandal. Here's what he said about the situation:
This morning I read a short analysis of the pope's signing A DOCUMENT ON HUMAN FRATERNITY FOR WORLD PEACE AND LIVING TOGETHER with Al Azhar Grand Imam Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb. The author, a Messianic Jew whose maternal grandfather died at Auschwitz, Olivier Melnick works with Chosen People Ministries. Their mission is first to evangelize the Jews and then the gentiles. It's ironic isn't it, at a time when the Catholic Church discourages evangelization of the Jews (or anyone else) as "proselytism," that a man raised as a secular Jew devotes his life to bringing his brothers and sisters to know "Yeshua." [Read the article.] We live in interesting and confusing times.

A big thank you to Christian store owner Reggie McDaniel. He says he wasn't being political. He wants people to think about the most important journey of all. We should all ask ourselves, "Where is my spiritual 'migration' taking me?" Am I headed for the walled city on the hill? Or am I headed for the very hot plains of Babylon with its open borders?
