    NEW YORK - Pope Francis’s landmark agreement with the Muslim world, signed earlier this year during his visit to Abu Dhabi, was heralded at the annual prayer service on the eve of the United Nations General Assembly as “an antidote to hatred, violence, extremism and blind fanaticism.” “The Declaration is an appeal to all people of goodwill to put aside particular and egotistic interests, be they individual, national or continental, to break down the walls in our minds and to cross the borders in order to promote and build up justice and peace,” said Bishop Paul Hinder, who serves as...

    [Catholic Caucus] Vittorio Messori: “The Church does not belong to Bergoglio” Bruno Volpe La Fede Quotidiana September 17, 2019    “The Church doesn’t belong to Bergoglio but to Christ. Certainly, I’m worried” says the well-known Catholic journalist, Vittorio Messori, fine intellectual, author of a historic, John Paul II interview, at the time when interviewing a pope was not the done thing by newspapers.  “I have seen many people worried, even desperately. As a believer, nonetheless, I keep in mind that  the Church is not a business, a multinational or a state. In a word, it cannot fail. Certainly, there...

    [Catholic Caucus] Expect North American church to learn from pan-Amazonian synod Isidoro Jajoy, a shaman from Colombia's Inga tribe, blesses people in Bogota Aug. 14 during a preparatory meeting for the October Synod of Bishops for the Amazon. (CNS/Manuel Rueda) The upcoming synod on the pan-Amazon region, a broad geographic area ranging over a number of South American countries, will deal with three themes that have been consistent concerns of Pope Francis: the environment, the plight of indigenous peoples, and the need to provide effective pastoral care in local churches. The October event also highlights Francis' use of the synod...

    A Presbyterian Church (USA) congregation in New York made news this week after it featured the sculpture of a pagan deity in its chancel. The United Presbyterian Church of Binghamton hosted “the Sviatovid idol” which depicts a ninth-century Slavic deity, as part of a September 6-7 festival of lights. Sviatovid (alternately known as Svetovid, Svantovit, Sventovit, or Svantevit) was a local Slavic god of war, fertility, and abundance in the Baltic region. In the early twentieth century, an idol was discovered near the Zbruch River in Western Ukraine (accessible with free JSTOR account). This idol pictured was originally thought to...

    America Magazine ^ | September 12, 2019 | Victor Codina, S.J.
    [Jesuit Barf Alert] Why do some Catholics oppose Pope Francis? It is neither unusual nor surprising to encounter discord and opposition in the Catholic Church. Such disagreement stretches back from the present day to the time of St. Paul, who stood up to Cephas in Antioch (Gal 2:14).Opposition was manifest in the first ecumenical councils as well as the last two. At the First Vatican Council (1870), a group of bishops and theologians opposed the proposed definition of papal infallibility. Some did not accept the council and separated from Rome, giving rise to the so-called Old Catholic Church. Others did...

    After many years of patient work, Satan has led the great majority of people in the Church and outside of the Church into relativism who has convinced this great majority of people that each person can decide the Truth for themselves without any reference to what God has revealed to us throughout human history (called Divine Revelation), well explained in the documents of the Catholic Church and well summarized in the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults (CCC, ed. 1992). Thus people no longer realize the great devastation that will happen afterwards due to neglecting and arrogantly changing the...

    Francis Claims: Religious Differences “Are Necessary” “Our differences are necessary,” a confused Pope Francis claimed with greatest emphasis during a September 5 inter-religious meeting with young people in Maputo, Mozambique. At the same time, his controversial Deputy Secretary of State, Archbishop Edgar Peña Parra, sat in the background and was chewing gum. This is Francis’ statement, originally pronounced in Portuguese (video below): “I thank the members of different religious confessions who have joined us, and those who do not belong to any particular religious tradition. Thank you for encouraging one another to live and celebrate today the challenge of peace...

What is new is Brandmüller's declaration that the current crisis surpasses even the Arian Crisis in severity:  "'We must face serious challenges to the integrity of...

    VATICAN – The lives of 19 religious men and women martyred during the Algerian civil war are a testament to God’s plan of love and peaceful coexistence between Christians and Muslims, Pope Francis said…. Both Christians and Muslims in Algeria “have been victims of the same violence for having lived, with faithfulness and respect for each other, their duties as believers and citizens in this blessed land. It is for them, too, that we pray and express our grateful tribute,” the Pope said. Among those who were beatified were Blessed Christian de Cherge and six of his fellow Trappists –...

    EXCLUSIVE: Bishop Schneider says Vatican is betraying ‘Jesus Christ as the only Savior of mankind’ ROME, August 26, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — The Vatican’s decision to implement a document affirming that the “diversity of religions” is “willed by God,” without correcting this statement, is tantamount to “promoting the neglect of the first Commandment” and a “betrayal of the Gospel,” Bishop Athanasius Schneider has said. In an exclusive interview with LifeSiteNews on a Vatican-backed iniative to promote the “Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together,” the auxiliary of Astana, Kazakhstan, said that “however noble such aims as ‘human fraternity’ and ‘world peace’ may be, they...
