    Church Historian: Pope Francis is Skating on Thinnest Ice Ever Rarely has a pope been accused of heresy, warns Carlos Eire ROME (ChurchMilitant.com) - A distinguished Church historian who fled the tyranny of Fidel Castro is warning that Pope Francis is theologically "skating on the thinnest ice that anyone — not just living, but dead or watching — is." Ed Pentin "It is very rare" for a pope to be accused of unorthodoxy or perhaps even heresy, Carlos M. N. Eire, professor of History and Religious Studies at Yale University, asserts.   However, "things would get hairy" if a heretical pope invoked infallibility, Eire explains in an interview...

    Pope Enlists Atheist to Hose Down Media Firestorm Leftist Eugenio Scalfari dedicates three pages to defending Francis ROME (ChurchMilitant.com) - Pope Francis has used his latest interview with his atheist journalist friend, Eugenio Scalfari, to de-escalate media furor over the book on priestly celibacy published by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI and Cdl. Robert Sarah. The case of Benedict apparently coming out against Francis' possible ordination of married priests in the Amazon and other outlying regions is closed, the pontiff tells Scalfari, founder of La Repubblica, in a three-page interview. Francis insists that the pope emeritus has demonstrated "fraternal" solidarity with him and has not allied himself with Cdl....

    It’s “Certain”: Francis Will Abolish Celibacy in South America – And Elsewhere The semi-official IlSismografo.blogspot.com (January 16) announces that it is “certain” that Francis will abolish celibacy in early February via his Amazon Exhortation.The measure will first regard the nine countries which have a part of the Amazon basin, IlSismografo writes.They are: Peru, Brazil, Venezuela, Ecuador, Colombia, Guyana, Bolivia, Suriname and French Guiana.IlSismografo pretends that Francis impending decision was “authorized” by the Amazon Synod.Nothing could be farther from the truth. The Amazon Synod was an authentic Robber Synod to which Francis invited a selected group of ignorant Pachamama bishops with...

    Cardinal Müller: Benedict XVI could not keep silent because he saw the ‘danger’ ROME, January 17, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Benedict XVI said he could not remain silent in his new book because he sees the voices of those who wish to abolish priestly celibacy as a “great danger” for the Church, Cardinal Gerhard Müller has said.  In a recent interview with Corriere della Sera, the former prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) added that while “some are putting pressure on Francis,” the “contribution” of Benedict’s new book with Cardinal Sarah is “a help to...

    Blood on His Hands Pope Francis' betrayal of Chinese Catholics While, for the most part, it's been high-level cardinals and archbishops who made a back-door, secret agreement with the Communist Chinese government regarding China's growing Catholic population, Pope Francis bears ultimate responsibility for their betrayal. Details of the negotiation between the Vatican and the Chinese government have been kept secret by the man directly under Pope Francis, Cdl. Pietro Parolin. Hong Kong's retired archbishop, Cdl. Joseph Zen, has been petitioning Pope Francis to review the agreement. Zen met with the Pope in July 2019 and handed him a letter outlining...

    [Catholic Caucus] Who is Gänswein Really? What Role Has He Played And Is He Playing? Authorized English translation of Italian Original by Giuseppe PellegrinoDear readers, we have received a message from an elderly high-ranking prelate of the Curia; he is retired, but because he has over forty years of experience working inside the Vatican walls, from time to time he is still given delicate assignments. What “Monsignor X” writes to us is extremely interesting, because it helps us to piece together some of the problematic aspects of  the events of the last 72 hours. We are speaking, naturally, of the...

    [Catholic Caucus] Socci: The Backstory: here is what went on behind the scenes. The rage of the despot against the Catholic Pope Reliable sources inside the Vatican have pieced together what happened. The book “From the Depths of Our Hearts” is clearly by Benedict XVI and Cardinal Sarah (as is indeed the letters between the two of them -  made public by Cardinal Sarah -  demonstrate unequivocally). Everything had been decided and agreed upon from the very start. The other day – when the part defending celibacy was published -  pandemonium broke out in the Vatican because Bergoglio was fuming...

    The Pope’s Mask Falls Againg The scandals of this pontificate pile up. Jorge Bergoglio is not so much the pope of the common man as a friend to the globally powerful. He disdains the most devout members of his faith, labeling them “rigid,” while rolling out the red carpet for thugs and pagan celebrities. Not a week passes without the pope meeting and greeting some enemy of the faith. The media, for the most part, continues to serve as his PR agents. Witness its burbling over The Two Popes, a movie as fictional as its news coverage. It might as...

The cardinal, who is the patron of the Sovereign Military...

He delighted tourists on New Year's Eve when he took a stroll through the Square, but he was taken by surprise as he was dragged back by a woman eager to hold his hand. Francis exclaimed and then struck the woman's hand twice to free himself.

Published 4 days ago on Dec 26, 2019 By Shane Trejo Pope Francis’ war on traditional Catholicism has been ramping up recently, and he castigated Catholics who believe in tradition and refuse to warp Biblical scripture to appease a godless world for creating a “minefield of misunderstanding and hatred.” “Rigidity and imbalance fuel one another in a vicious circle,” he said. “And these days, the temptation to rigidity has become so apparent.” “Tradition is not static, it’s dynamic,” Francis...

    A Christmas Marked by Desecration, with Bergoglio as Chief Desecrator I had not yet seen HERE the celebration of the Pachamama with Bergoglio in front of the altar at Saint Peter’s Basilica last October 4 at the opening of the Amazon Synod. It is stunning. Now I understand why people are talking about idolatrous profanation and of the need to reconsecrate Saint Peter’s Basilica. Perhaps it is not “the abomination of desolation in the holy place” (Mt 24:15) prophesied by Jesus, but it certainly raises many concerns. It is a sad Christmas for Christians if we think about the many...

Citing a fictional 11th century account of an episode of forced conversion, attributed to the eighth century emperor Charlemagne, Pope Francis implied that the belief that positive efforts should be made to...
