Rubera is the spokesman of Cammini di speranza, a group of "Catholic" homosexuals.Francis asked Rubera on the phone if the surrogate children had...

    Pope Francis in TED talk: ‘We only have a few years’ to fix climate change The Holy Father didn’t mention God, or Jesus Christ, in his 13-minute video. VATICAN CITY, October 23, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Pope Francis once again called for action to be taken on “climate change,” this time making the alarmist claim that there are less than 30 years to do so. The Holy Father didn’t mention God, or Jesus Christ, at all in his 13-minute video. The new video is part of TED’s “Countdown” series, which seeks “to accelerate solutions to the climate crisis” and has the...

    Abp. Viganň: Here is what the Pope’s ambiguous statements are doing to the Church October 23, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Yesterday, on the occasion of the Rome Film Festival, the director Evgeny Afineevsky presented a documentary called Francesco, which proposes several interviews done with Jorge Mario Bergoglio over the course of the last few years of his pontificate. Among other disconcerting statements, there are several about the legitimization of homosexual civil unions: “What we have to create is a civil union law. That way they [homosexuals] are legally covered. I stood up for that.” I think that both the simple faithful...

    Where Francis Leads, We Can’t Follow “Homosexuals have a right to be a part of the family. They’re children of God and have a right to a family. Nobody should be thrown out or be made miserable because of it. What we have to create is a civil union law. That way they are legally covered. I stood up for that.”That’s a quote from Pope Francis. Pope Francis—the Bishop of Rome, the Vicar of Christ, the Supreme Pontiff of the Catholic Church. And not only has he come out in support of civil unions for same-sex couples: he has also...
  • Faithful obliged not to follow Pope’s opinion on gay civil unions

    Daily Compass ^ | October 23, 2020 | Stefano Fontana
    Faithful obliged not to follow Pope’s opinion on gay civil unions What Pope Francis said about homosexual civil unions is devoid of truth and, therefore, false. It does not force believers to accept what he said, even if coming straight from the pope himself. Quite the contrary: faithful are obliged to think the opposite, even if the current pope does not say so, because every other pope before him has said so. Catholic faithful must not feel uneasy about refusing this erroneous teaching which upends natural and divine law, rejects natural ethics, and upsets notions of law and authority by...

    Vatican's Betrayal of Chinese Church Extended By Two Years In the shadow of Francis’ recent homosex scandal, the Vatican announced on October 22 the renewal of its 2018 Agreement with China for another two years. The secret agreement supposedly regards the appointment of bishops, allowing the Chinese Communists to present a list of three candidates from which the Vatican must choose one. The Vatican’s press statement calls the results of the agreement “positive,” while in reality the underground Catholic Church is being replaced with the Communist State Church.

    Bishop Consecrated in the Pachamama Rite (Pictures) The consecration of San Marcos de Arica Bishop Moisés Atisha, 51, Chile, in January 2015 included worshipping Inca idols like Pachamama (earth), Tata Inti (sun) and Malkus (mountain spirits). A carpet with coca leaves, seeds and bottles served as “altar”. Many bishops participated in the pagan ritual in chasubles and miter. Among them was the Apostolic Nuncio to Chile, Archbishop Ivo Scapolo, who is now Nuncio to Portugal. Also present was modernist Santiago Cardinal Ezzati, 78, whom Francis first left in place but then abandoned in March 2019 due to the abuse hoax....

    Liturgy expert: Worldwide spread of Novus Ordo has diminished belief in Real Presence 'I'm afraid it's impossible to deny the connection.' Would you say there is a connection between the postconciliar liturgy and the dwindling belief in transubstantiation? Yes, I’m afraid it’s impossible to deny the connection. The classical Roman rite as it developed over so many centuries acquired numerous and very expressive gestures of adoration and care toward the Holy Sacrament, precisely because it is not a mere “thing,” but under the signs of bread and wine a divine Person is really present. How we treat Him is how...

    Cardinals Deplore German Bishops’ Slide, as Schism Fears Arise Despite Pope Francis’ warnings, the leaders of the Church in Germany have refused to back down on their promotion of intercommunion or to change the course on their much-criticized ‘synodal path.’ VATICAN CITY — As reports emerged recently of Pope Francis’ “dramatic concern” about the state of the Catholic Church in Germany and news that he received Germany’s apostolic nuncio for private talks on Monday, the country’s bishops pressed ahead on their goal of shared Communion with Protestants despite strong objections from the Vatican. The leaders of both churches said...

    [Catholic Caucus] Polish Police Disrupt Mass, Kidnap Priest (Video) Polish police removed Salesian Father Michał Woźnicki, 54, from his room while he was celebrating an October 19 Traditional Latin Mass. Woźnicki was suspended for alleged “disobedience” in 2016, and expelled from his order in 2018. Nevertheless, he kept living in the Salesian house in Poznan where he built an altar in his room in order to say Mass for some faithful. The priest doesn't comply with coronavirus restrictions and doesn't use masks. Therefore, in a spirit of mercy, the Salesians called police. When the officers entered, Woźnicki told them to...
