    Breitbart ^ | 12 Jan 2018 | THOMAS D. WILLIAMS, PH.D.
    A Vatican official has come out swinging in defense of Pope Francis’ insistence on the topic of immigration, accusing the Pope’s critics of being “obsessed” with national security and border control. Asked in an interview with Italian media whether the Pope isn’t “obsessed” with the immigration question, Jesuit Father Michael Czerny, undersecretary for the Vatican’s office of Migrants and Refugees, responded that it isn’t Pope Francis who is obsessive, but rather his critics. Many would say that the modern “obsession with borders and national security to the detriment of the rights and dignity of refugees and refugees” is excessive, the...

  • Eerie and ominous’ sign appears as Pope Francis visits Vatican Nativity

    01/03/2018 6:39:58 AM PST · by MNDude · 23 replies
    Would Pope Francis say anything about this year’s Vatican nativity scene — which was so clearly meant as a nod to the LGBT lobby — when he paid it a visit on New Year’s Eve? He spoke not a word of course, but instead blessed it and chuckled as a few dignitaries, responsible for what some have called a “hideous” and “sacrilegious” crčche, gave him a guided tour. And yet something very eerie and ominous happened that evening. At exactly the same time as the Pope left St. Peter’s Basilica and walked to the crčche in St. Peter’s Square, a...

    Almost exactly a year after they issued a call for prayer that the pope would uphold Catholic teaching on marriage, three bishops from Kazakhstan — Tomash Peta, Metropolitan Archbishop of the archdiocese of Saint Mary in Astana, Jan Pawel Lenga, Archbishop-Bishop emeritus of Karaganda, and Athanasius Schneider, Auxiliary Bishop of the archdiocese of Saint Mary in Astana — have issued a new statement, saying that any change in sacramental discipline that would allow Catholic divorcees living in new sexual unions to receive Holy Communion is “alien to the entire Tradition of the Catholic and Apostolic faith”. One year ago this...

    After the secular press leaked to the Catholic world hidden evidence of the massive scandal in the Archdiocese of Tegucigalpa, presided over by the “Vice-Pope” Cardinal Maradiaga of Honduras, Pope Francis rushed to defend his friend, telling him “do not you worry.” [sic] It is already clear that Maradiaga will be protected despite the testimony of 50 witnesses regarding the endemic corruption in the Archdiocese - of which Maradiaga could not have been unaware - including monthly payments to him of some $40,000 for years from the Catholic University of Honduras. And now it seems another friend of Francis is...

    Pope Francis will meet Jordan’s King Abdullah II at the Vatican next week, the Holy See announced on Friday, as Palestinians continue to clash with Israeli forces over US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. […] The pope and King Abdullah, the custodian of the Muslim holy sites in Jerusalem’s Old City, are likely to discuss the situation, though the Vatican never indicates topics of discussion for such meetings in advance. On Sunday, the pope called for “respect of the status quo” in Jerusalem and warned against “a new spiral of violence”. Abdullah has denounced the...

Marcantonio Colonna, the pseudonymous author of The Dictator Pope, has said the Vatican is trying to discover his identity. The book was published as a Kindle edition last week and has caused consternation with its claims about Pope Francis’s reign.Speaking to the Catholic Herald over email, Colonna claimed that the Pope had been given a list of possible names.“A person in England was misidentified as the author at one point and immediately received threatening telephone calls from Rome,” Colonna said. “I now hear that Vatican officials...

    A top Vatican astronomer has said that a number of public scientists claim to be atheists in order to appear credible, noting that a surprising number of scientists attend church. Brother Guy Consolmagno, director of the Vatican Observatory, who has spoken on a number of topics concerning science and faith, told Vancouver Sun in an interview earlier this week that many "public scientists" are insecure about their rank. "The scientists that you see on TV who are proclaimed atheists because they think it gives them credibility in science — which it doesn't — are turning off the nine-tenths of the...

    A poster is being circulated among ISIS supporters that shows a man driving in a car with a gun and a backpack towards the Vatican. In English lettering reads, “Christmas blood,” and “So wait…” on a second line. The Christmas season has been a time for Islamist terrorists to strike in the past. The “underwear bomber” attempted to blow up a plane around Christmastime in 2009. The heinous terror attack in San Bernardino, California, began at a Christmas party when Syed Farook and his wife Tashfeen Malik killed 14 of their co-workers in 2015. Terror experts have warned that the...

    Pope Francis has outlawed the sale of cigarettes at the Vatican in a bid to lead by example on healthy living. […] “The reason is very simple: the Holy See cannot contribute to an activity that clearly damages the health of people,” it said, adding that smoking claims more than seven million lives every year, according to the World Health Organization. […] Francis, who has only one lung, does not smoke. He has let the locals keep their other guilty pleasure: tax-free alcohol. The cigarettes and booze are sold in a luxury duty-free shop, opened in 2003 in what was...

    Gov. Jerry Brown challenged the world’s religious leaders to further engage as he minimized the negative effects of President Donald Trump on meeting the climate-change challenge. “The Trump factor is very small, very small indeed,” in comparison to the commitments taking place around the world, Brown said to a burst of applause Saturday at an event organized by the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy of Sciences. “That’s nothing to cheer about, because if it was only Trump that was a problem, we’d have it solved. But that’s not our only problem.
