    CHICAGO, April 25, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Next week in the Archdiocese of Chicago, the Catholic bishop of Lexington, Kentucky will speak to a symposium organized by a dissident group condemned by the Vatican and U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. Chicago's Cardinal Blase Cupich hasn't commented on the event taking place within his archdiocese, nor acted to prevent his fellow bishop from speaking there. Bishop John Stowe of the Diocese of Lexington is scheduled to speak at New Ways Ministry's 2017 conference, titled "Justice and Mercy Shall Kiss: LGBT Catholics in the Age of Pope Francis." He's defended his decision to do...

    April 24, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Canada’s bishops must clean up or shut down Development & Peace in the wake of a LifeSiteNews investigation that revealed the Catholic aid organization funded pro-abortion and pro-homosexual activist groups in Latin American, pro-life leaders say. “We can’t have Catholic money going to organizations that don’t have respect for human life from the very time of conception onward,” said Jim Hughes, president of Campaign Life Coalition, Canada’s national pro-life, pro-family political lobby group. “It’s time for the bishops to shake this whole thing up and put into positions of authority people who are going to...

    Fr. Oko: "There is most definitely a problem with homosexual bishops in the universal Church" The gay priest crisis, now evidenced by adult same-sex relationships rather than abuse of teenage boys, isn't going away as long as the hierarchy keeps it in the closet. The recent scandal of Msgr. Edward Arsenault III, convicted of embezzling money to support his homosexual partners, is but the latest example. Reports of homosexual rings in places like the archdiocese of New York and accounts of Vatican officials coming out as gay make it clear that the root cause of the sex scandals in the...

    Cardinal Wuerl Honored Gay-Promoting Priest On Good Friday I believe him when he says Cardinal Wuerl invited him to St. Matthew's to preach. We might ask "why"? The question is rhetorical. Cardinal Wuerl and Father Martin clearly think very much alike on key doctrinal and moral issues. If they didn't, the Cardinal would never have asked him to preach at his Cathedral.

    In late October 2016, Jesuit Fr. James Martin received the annual “Bridge Building Award” from New Ways Ministry, a dissident, pro-gay-identity, pro-gay-sex, pro-gay-“marriage” group whose work was long ago condemned by both the Roman Curia and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. At the award event, Frank DeBernardo, executive director of the group, compared Martin’s impact with the so-called “Pope Francis effect.” Regarding Martin, a giant in Catholic social media, DeBernardo said:Well, at New Ways Ministry, we often speak of the “James Martin Effect.” When he posts something [from] New Ways Ministry social media on his social media...

    A high-ranking priest in New Hampshire has been stripped of his priestly faculties and imprisoned over an embezzlement scandal involving his gay lovers. The diocese of Manchester made the announcement Friday about Edward J. Arsenault III, whose faculties were removed by the Vatican on February 28. The former monsignor is under house arrest for a 2014 conviction for embezzling funds to support his homosexual partners.  Arsenault pled guilty to all charges, including writing checks to himself and his brother amounting to $23,000 from the estate of Msgr. John Molan. He also billed the diocese $184,000 for lavish meals, cell phones and computer equipment...

    ROME, Italy, April 11, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Cardinal Raymond Burke has revealed in a new interview that he requested an audience with Pope Francis and has yet to receive a response.  Cardinal Burke also reconfirmed that Pope Francis effectively removed him from having any governance of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta while remaining its Patron. The American cardinal known for his Catholic orthodoxy addressed several other topics during the wide-ranging interview with InfoVaticana’s Gabriel Ariza. He said comments by the new head of the Jesuit order that cast doubt on the validity of Christ’s words on marriage must be corrected....

    Monsignor Michael Hull, an extremely close associate of the archdiocese's vicar general, Msgr. Greg Mustaciuolo, had a series of very plum assignments in the archdiocese. Sources tell Church Militant that this was owing to the nature of the close relationship between Hull and Mustaciouolo, a relationship where they wore matching Mickey Mouse sweaters while also overnighting at the archdiocese's seminary, St. Joseph's in the Dunwoodie neighborhood of Yonkers. Observers thought it was strange that Mustaciuolo would overnight at the seminary because his residence was just a short ride away in Manhattan. Mustociuolo made sure that Michael Hull was well provided...

    Three weeks have passed since Marie Collins resigned from the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors (PCPM), complaining that the group’s work has been thwarted by resistance from within the Roman Curia. A few days after her public announcement, Cardinal Gerhard Müller, the prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF)—which was the main target of Collins’ criticism— defended his office and denied any foot-dragging on the abuse issue. Collins quickly shot back, rebutting the cardinal’s arguments. Since, then, silence. Where do we stand? Is this special papal commission really acting under restraint? Or do its...

    LGBTQ activists threatened "large-scale violence," rioting and "possible deaths" if they were not allowed to participate in Sunday's St. Patrick’s Day Parade, parade organizers said. According to parade officials, Boston Police said homosexuals bused in from other states to "disrupt" the festivities were a serious threat unless Catholic organizers permitted a gay veterans group in the parade. Police not only determined the gay threats were "credible" but warned that they would not guarantee the safety of the public, including children. It was also implied that organizers would be responsible if gay violence erupted. Faced with the threat of "large-scale" gay...

    This petition has been created and sponsored by a coalition of Italian pro-life and pro-family groups. BACKGROUND Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, the new head of the Pontifical Academy for Life recently gave remarks expressing unqualified admiration for longtime friend Marco Pannella, one of Italy’s most radical proponents of the culture of death. Speaking about the Italian Radical Party founder, Paglia stated that he was "a man of great spirituality" and that his death was “a great loss, not only for the people of the Radical Party, but also for our country,” among many other glowing statements. Pannella spent his life fighting...

    My mother used to say often when warning us about carefully choosing our friends that, "Birds of a feather flock together." Did you ever see a cardinal flying with vultures? Well, maybe that isn't the best example since so many cardinals these days are, in fact, vultures. And, sadly, Pope Francis has placed many of these evil men in important positions at the Vatican. Let's check out a few. Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo Sorondo countenances the worst moral evils as was evident recently at the Biological Extinction meeting. He happily legitimizes enemies of the Church and life itself by offering...

Dolan sat down with Quinn, a nice Irish girl (by marriage) he noted, and talked about Lenten sacrifices, St. Patrick’s Day and the parade which is tomorrow. By the way, if you’re wondering if Cardinal Dolan is giving up anything for Lent, he is: Beer! Diet root beer is his substitute. BQ: It was only in 2015 that the first LGBT group marched and you caught a little flack for that. CD: Nooo. We caught quite...

    The recent revelations of homoerotic, blasphemous art in the Cathedral of Terni, commissioned by Archbishop Paglia, now the head of the Vatican office that oversees the St. John Paul II Institute for Studies in Marriage and Family worldwide, raise several vital issues that need to be urgently addressed. The protection of Catholic marriages, families, youth and the Church depend upon a correct resolution of this scandal. To begin with, the exposition of homoerotic art in Archbishop Paglia’s Cathedral from 2007 raises the important question of how he could ever have been chosen to lead the Pontifical Council for the Family...

    The archbishop now at the helm of the Pontifical Academy for Life paid a homosexual artist to paint a blasphemous homoerotic mural in his cathedral church in 2007. The mural includes an image of the archbishop himself. The archbishop, Vincenzo Paglia, was also recently appointed by Pope Francis as president of the Pontifical Pope John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family. The massive mural still covers the opposite side of the facade of the cathedral church of the Diocese of Terni-Narni-Amelia. It depicts Jesus carrying nets to heaven filled with naked and semi-nude homosexuals, transsexuals, prostitutes, and...

    ABC News reports: "Pope Francis has quietly reduced sanctions against a handful of pedophile priests, applying his vision of a merciful church even to its worst offenders in ways that survivors of abuse and the pope's own advisers question. One case has come back to haunt him: An Italian priest who received the pope's clemency was later convicted by an Italian criminal court for his sex crimes against children as young as 12. The Rev. Mauro Inzoli is now facing a second church trial after new evidence emerged against him, The Associated Press has learned.  The Inzoli case is...

    Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio, one of the most prominent defenders of Communion for the remarried, has said that his proposed guidance would apply to the divorced and remarried, but not to gay couples. He explained: “It’s not a natural condition”. Cardinal Coccopalmerio, president of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts, said last week that divorced and remarried couples could take Communion if they found it “impossible” to avoid sex. The Church has taught that the remarried cannot receive Communion, except possibly when they endeavour to live “in complete continence”. Cardinal Coccopalmerio’s critics said he had contradicted this doctrine, as well as...

    Part one of a series on “gay-friendly” parishes and ministries in the Catholic Church January 17, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – As controversy continues to rage over Pope Francis’ doctrines on communion for the divorced and remarried, an even more controversial practice proliferating in the shadows for decades is becoming increasingly open and explicit: same-sex couples exerting their influence in Catholic parishes throughout the United States and Canada. At a rapidly growing number of proudly "gay-friendly" parishes, same-sex couples who flout the Church’s teaching on the immorality of homosexual acts are exercising leadership roles and receiving Communion with encouragement from their pastors....
