International Group of Lay Catholics Calls for Summit to Address Homosexuality


Read their statements. The Vatican cannot ignore the central issue in the abuse crisis without further undermining credibility with the faithful.

Guest Post: Call the Crisis What It Is: Pederasty!


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.

As the Vatican Turns: Latest Episode of the Church Sex Abuse Soap

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.

The New World Order and the Dethronement of Christ the King: It's the REVOLUTION!

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."

Guest Post: Is It Time for Cuomo and his Infanticide-supporting Buddies to have a Canossa Moment?

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?

Freemasonry and Pope Francis's End Game, Mirror Images


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.

Breaking News: Laicization for McCarrick

From "Cardinal McCarrick" to Mr. McCarrick

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”.

Dirty Birds at the Vatican: They Give Cardinals a Bad Name

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.

Fr. Tom Collins: A MORE DOCILE APPROACH TO AN EXAMINATION OF CONSCIENCE

Lent begins in a few weeks, so it's a good time to think about confession which always begins with a serious and fruitful examination of conscience. Fr. Tom gives us a how-to approach.


The Rite for the Sacrament of Reconciliation encourages the use of God’s Word, found in Holy Scripture and in Church Tradition, for the examination of one’s conscience.

Here's what natural God-given masculinity and femininity look and sound like...

...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.

Two Thumbs Up up to Janet at Restore D.C. Catholicism for Helping Stop a Public Scandal in Raleigh Diocese

Pastor says he made decision to cancel speech by gay Durham City Council member

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:

Did the Pope Sign a Document that Advances One-World Religion?

Olivier Melnick
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.

How Sad: To live in a time when a grocery store owner has more sense than most of our bishops!



See more at "Heaven has a wall."  And if you want to leave a message, visit the Facebook page. Next time we head to Texas we plan to stop and shop at Mac's. I wish they had an online store! 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?

Racism at Yale! ....Against White Males

Isis Davis-Marks
Can you imagine an article in the Yale student paper advising students to spy on "black boy" classmates describing them with kinky hair and big-lipped smiles so they can get them later on when they are out in the corporate or political world? Can you imagine anyone writing, "I'm watching you, black boy."

No?

I can't either. But that's what Yale allowed a student to do to "white boys" in the student paper. Here's just a bit of the article that bubbles over with racist hate:

Sometimes you just gotta laugh -- So do it and then pray for the pope!

Eye of the Tiber had a hilarious post yesterday and since laughter really is the best medicine when you feel like crying over the state of the Church, I offer EOTT's post as a medicinal survival prescription. They prove that satire is still possible in the crazy times we live in when the entire culture seems like a satire! Isn't it sad when so much of what our pope does seems like satire?
Pray for the pope! The best thing that could happen is for him to return to the faith of our fathers. [Hat tip to my masked friend, Sweat, who alerted me to this post.]

The Show Goes On: Second Accuser Says Justin Fairfax Raped Her at Duke U. in 2000

Make sure the popcorn can is full!
What a tangle for the Dems! Their great black hope, Justin Fairfax, is up to his crotch in quicksand of his own making. Hey, keep your pants zipped, Justin, and you won't have any problems. With a second accuser coming forth with no hint of consensual behavior which he's claiming for the first woman, Fairfax is probably toast! (Can we still say that?)

There have been several comparison's between Fairfax and Kavanaugh over the sex abuse accusations. But there's a biiiiiiig difference between Fairfax's accuser, Vanessa Tyson, and Brett Kavanaugh's. Christine Ford had an ax to grind. She hates Trump and she hates Kavanaugh because he's a conservative. She supposedly remembered very few details about the alleged events. She was caught in outright lies about her fear of flying and the reason she had two doors on her house. And that little girl, "please believe me I'm so vulnerable" voice. What an act! And please....who wouldn't remember the person who drove you home after a rape party? Give me a break!

The Three Stooges: Mark Herring, Ralph Northam, and Justin Fairfax
Ya just gotta laugh at the Virginia road show featuring the three stooges! Ralph Northam (the guv), Justin Fairfax (the assistant guv), and Mark Herring (the AG) are now all flapping in the wind hoisted on their own petards. (I explained that expression here.)

State of the Union and the Selfish Women in White

"Democrats for Infanticide!" or maybe "No Baby Left Unmurdered"  ought to be slogans for the Democrat women in white at last night's State of the Union. They high-fived and cheered for themselves when Trump talked about advances for women. Like happy, clappy little narcissists they only care about what benefits them.

Full term baby assassination costs $17,000

Listen to the abortion clinic employee! At the end of the conversation (8:41) she says, "Alrighty then!" as if she has simply scheduled a dental cleaning. One must have $17,000 ready to hand over to the assassin to murder their child...and rest assured that black market organ dealers are standing in line to buy the child's organs and body parts. Now we see why Obamacare is so important. Who can afford a $17,000 hit job on a full term baby?

Thanks to InfoWars reporter Millie Weaver (38 weeks pregnant) for this video. Millie's sonogram (10:01 - 10:36) shows her full term baby opening and closing her eyes, looking around and smiling.

Nick Sandmann's Lawyer Releases "The Truth"



Wow! This video shows exactly how much of a liar Indian activist Nathan Phillips is.

Wouldn't You Like to See All Nuns in Habits Again?...

...Instead of permed in pantsuits and pearls spouting dissent? I enjoyed this video about the nuns' habits but it made me sad as well. Think of what's been lost. When sisters shed the habits, they lost much else besides (Some threw off the faith along with it.) -- especially the sign value to the world of the consecrated life that puts Christ above all!

I used to have several nun dolls (before Vatican II) and I'm going to start looking for them when I'm out at thrift shops. For kids who never see a real nun, only faux imitations like Sr. Joan Chittister and the nuns on the bus, the dolls can be a learning tool. And they bring back so many fond memories of nuns in my own life. RIP Sr. Joanna, Sr. Avila, Sr. Germella, Sr. Jeanne Marie, and Sr. Joan Marie. Thanks for the smile when I think of your speech class, Sr. Marion Rita. Most of us were terrified of you and that was probably a healthy thing.

Libel Lawyers Release List of 50+ Possible Defendants in Nick Sandmann/Covington Case...

Is that a "We're gonna getcha" smirk
on libel lawyer Lin Wood's face?
...and it includes the Dioceses of Covington, Louisville, Lexington, and Baltimore. Good!

Bishops who were slow to move against sexual predators couldn't wait to crucify the Covington kids within hours of the viral video showing the short clip of Nathan Phillips beating his drum in Nick Sandmann's face.

The smiling student was condemned without a trial for the "facecrime" of "smirking." Hey, it just looked like a calm smile to me.

But then I couldn't read Nick's thoughts like the vicious media/entertainment thugs who went after him with virtual woodchippers and chain saws.

This is a "come-to-Jesus-meeting" moment. And here's the list of those who received the "invitation" to the meeting. Read the list and smirk:

Why Do They Want Northam to Resign as Governor of Virginia?

Is Justin Fairfax the
Democrats' great black hope?

Ah pragmatism....Marxists (and Fascists) are experts at it. They use you up and spit you out when your usefulness has ended. The purge is on in Virginia and Governor Northam has become both a liability and an embarrassment to the ruling elite of the Democrat party.

Why, you ask, would Planned Parenthood (who spent $2 million to get Northam elected) and NARAL throw poor Ralphie under the bus? He embraces child-killing with gusto! And why would Nancy Pelosi and company all chant in unison for his resignation when he is oh-so-dependable at following every extreme position on the Dems' menu? Hey, even the homo advocacy group, the Human Rights Campaign, is calling for Northam's resignation despite his unqualified support for their agenda. Talk about a juggernaut of destruction against a faithful radical liberal!

Why are they crucifying poor Ralph?

Let me explain it to you in two word: Justin Fairfax.

Stop wringing your hands and get to work. It's time to start thinking about the next election cycle in Virginia or your own state. Overturning Roe v. Wade is NOT the only priority. Doing everything possible at the state level to protect the mother and encourage her to seriously consider her actions is imperative!

What Martha Stewart and Good Catholics Have in Common


So much has been said about Martha Stewart both positive and negative the mere mention of her name is enough to “trigger” many people.  I have not met her personally, but I know several people who have and they tell me she is a hard task master.  That she strives for perfection in all that she does is no exaggeration. 

If you’ve ever tried one of her recipes, you know she doesn’t take the shortcut, nor will you ever get away with using only one bowl and a couple of spoons.  If Martha has anything to do with something, you know from the start it will very likely, though not always, be COMPLICATED.  Not that "complicated" is necessarily to be to be avoided.  Often the results are well worth the effort.
