    President Joe Biden signed a presidential memorandum on Thursday, January 28, 2021, reversing the Trump administration rule blocking abortion businesses and centers that refer patients for abortion from receiving federal funding through the Title X family planning program. The 2018 “Protect Life Rule” required abortion businesses to both fiscally and physically separate family planning/birth control services from their abortion-related business. It also stated that family planning centers must stop referring patients for abortions in order to receive Title X funding. Title X states, “None of the funds appropriated under this title shall be used in programs where abortion is a...

Just two days earlier, Biden celebrated the anniversary of Roe v. Wade by promising to “codify” the pro-abortion ruling into federal lawAt the Mass Sunday, Jesuit...

The cross was located at the entrance of the church that belongs to the adjoining convent of the Discalced Carmelites, and had been there since 1939. It was erected to honor the Nationalist victims of Spain’s civil war, although the plaque noting this...

    Perhaps unsurprisingly, Pope Francis prematurely congratulated Joe Biden in a Thursday morning phone call, according to a statement released by the Biden-Harris campaign. In turn, Biden heaped praise on the pope and expressed his desire to work with him on a host of issues for the benefit of “mankind.” The statement said: “… Joe Biden spoke this morning with His Holiness Pope Francis. [Biden] thanked His Holiness for extending blessings and congratulations and noted his appreciation for His Holiness’ leadership in promoting peace, reconciliation, and the common bonds of humanity around the world.“[Biden] expressed his desire to work together on...

    A Syrian mercenary recently captured while fighting for Azerbaijan against Armenia in its ongoing war over Nagorno-Karabakh said on Wednesday that his recruiters instructed him and fellow mercenaries to “slaughter all civilians and soldiers” of an Armenian village they attempted to capture.

    Embattled pro-life Catholic priest Fr. James Altman has tripled down on his defense of unborn children, despite liberal clergy, and even his own bishop, attacking him for stating that no Catholic can vote Democrat due to the party’s championing of abortion on demand. During an interview with LifeSiteNews correspondent Danielle Zuccaro at the priest’s home parish St. James the Less last week, Altman emphatically stated that US bishops who refuse to warn Catholics about voting for Joe Biden would have “blood on their hands” if Biden wins the presidency on November 3rd. “There’s been way too much consistency on the...

    The nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the United States Supreme Court would make her, if confirmed, the sixth Roman Catholic on the nine-person court. The Catholic Church has already contributed much to the United States’ legal system - including “the whole idea of law in general,” Fr. Pius Pietrzyk, OP, told CNA. “It’s the development of canon law (the law that governs the Church) that gives both the United States and Europe their modern notions of law..." While aspects of canon law were present since the early days of the Church, the use of the term ‘canon law’, as...

    Pope engages Catholics to advance 'globalist ideology'First published by LiberoJust this morning, Bergoglio has announced the creation of 13 new cardinals (of whom 9 are electors). They are all ultra-Bergoglians. The hasty announcement at this moment, right on the eve of the U.S. election, is significant: Trump has strong momentum and now the Bergoglian Vatican is very afraid that he may be re-elected. Bergoglio, along with the entire globalist establishment, has declared war on Trump. If Trump really wins, then this pontificate, which is already in sharp decline, would be finished indeed, since it has crushed itself on China and...

    A Catholic charity has launched a campaign urging Prime Minister Boris Johnson to grant UK asylum to a young Christian girl in Pakistan receiving death threats from a Muslim rapist who forced her to marry him and convert to Islam. During the coronavirus lockdown, Mohamad Nakash kidnapped at gunpoint Maira Shahbaz, a 14-year-old Catholic girl from the Punjab Province, gang-raped her with two other accomplices, blackmailed her, and forced her to convert to Islam. In early August, the Lahore High Court ruled that Shahbaz had voluntarily converted to Islam and therefore is legally married to Mr. Nakash, who claimed that...

    Abp. Viganò: Here is what the Pope’s ambiguous statements are doing to the Church October 23, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Yesterday, on the occasion of the Rome Film Festival, the director Evgeny Afineevsky presented a documentary called Francesco, which proposes several interviews done with Jorge Mario Bergoglio over the course of the last few years of his pontificate. Among other disconcerting statements, there are several about the legitimization of homosexual civil unions: “What we have to create is a civil union law. That way they [homosexuals] are legally covered. I stood up for that.” I think that both the simple faithful...
