    Our loyalty is not just to Rome of 2020, but to Roma aeterna, the Rome of all time. Our love is not just for the Pontiff, but for the papacy as instituted by Jesus Christ in existence for two millennia, and no clever deviltry should make us think that one can be legitimately used against the other. Our loyalty is to the Church, which exists not just in space but in timeto Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever. Its raining spiritually again. The Pope has scandalized faithful Catholics and delighted progressives of every stripe by expressing support...

    At least seven soldiers have been killed by Boko Haram insurgents in Doska, Borno state, military sources have told TheCable. The troops were said to be on a patrol to the area when they got tricked by the insurgents who appeared in military uniforms and gun trucks. Doska, a village in between Ajigin and Talala in Damboa local government area of the state, became deserted since 2015 when the insurgents took control of the area which today remains one of their strongholds. The troops were on a fighting patrol, and when they got to Doska, they saw these people in...

    YERUSHALAYIM - Southern Israel was under attack on Tuesday night as an Iron Dome interceptor shot down a rocket fired out of Gaza. Air raid sirens sounded in towns in the Gaza periphery, including Kfar Aza and Nahal Oz. The military later confirmed the reports of an attack. Channel 12 said that at least one rocket was seemingly downed near Sderot. A security video shows what appears to be an Iron Dome interceptor missile sent skyward. No injuries have been reported. Details as they emerge.

    Explosive balloons were spotted over Sapir Academic College near Sderot on Monday, according to ynet. An explosive charge attached to the balloons reportedly detonated in the air, but the balloons continued to travel and are being tracked by security officials. A balloon landed at the Amdocs Factory in Sderot shortly afterwards, according to ynet. It is unclear if this is the same balloon as the one spotted over Sapir College. Except for sporadic balloon launches in September, the launches had largely stopped since a ceasefire was reached between Hamas and Israel at the end of August after weeks of...

    Another barbaric terrorist attack by ISIS (Islamic State IS) aimed at Shia Muslims in Kabul killed at least 24 young people. Over many decades different Sunni Islamist terrorist groups have targeted the Shia in Afghanistan. Therefore, the latest massacre joins a long list of sectarian violence. The ISIS suicide bomber had hoped to enter an education center to kill even more. However, he was spotted, thus the suicide bomber detonated just outside the education center. The BBC reports, The building in the predominantly Shia Muslim Dasht-e-Barchi area usually hosts hundreds of students. ISIS immediately claimed responsibility for killing innocent...

    The grisly killing 10 days ago ofa French school teacherhad many of the hallmarks of past attacks carried out by the bloody Islamist terror outfit ISIS. A well-defined symbolic target in the West: Samuel Paty, a respected history and geography teacher who'd been criticized by a Muslim parent and Islamist agitator for showing satirical cartoons of the prophet Muhammad as part of his annual lesson on free speech; the brazen brutality of the act: a swift stabbing and beheading with a butcher knife on a street near the school north of Paris; online exchanges discovered later between the perpetrator, a...

    In John 5 it tells about the pool of Bethesda, where people were waiting all around it for an angel would come down and trouble the water and the first one that stepped in was healed of whatever they had. In Mark 5 it tells about the women with the issue of blood that touched the hem of Jesus garment and was healed. We have something better than the pool of Bethesda. We have something better than the hem of Jesus garment we have the word of God. The word of God is God's medicine. Those things worked from the...

    Many believe that the upcoming November 3 election in the United States is the most important election since 1860 or perhaps in its history. The evidence supports this. Catholic Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigan, once the Apostolic diplomat to the U.S., recognizes the perilous nature of the 2020 presidential election. He recently said that in this election the American people face a biblical challenge against the demonic forces of the deep state and against the New World Order.[i] The September 24, 2020 Washington Times article quoted the archbishop as saying that the Presidential elections in November represent an epochal challenge, a...

A spokesman for Televisa told the Washington Post Oct. 22 that Someone at the Vatican gave us the part that we did broadcast, and later they gave the rest of the material to...

    Church and state representatives have teamed up to make another call for the name of Tsar Nicholas II to be returned to the Severnaya Zemlya (Northern Land) Archipelago in the Russian Arctic. The archipelago was opened in 1913 by an expedition sent by the Tsar and was thus named after him, though the islands were renamed in soviet times and now bear distinctly communist names: Pioneer, Komsomol, Bolshevik, and October Revolution. The issue of renaming the islands and archipelago has been raised several times in recent years. Among the signatories of a new appeal to the authorities of the Krasnoyarsk...
