    ROME — Pope Francis has signed an interfaith statement asserting that humanity faces a “global climate crisis” that demands phasing out fossil fuels. The Abu Dhabi Interfaith Statement for COP28 manifests the signers’ “shared concern for the escalating climate impacts that imperil our cherished planet, as well as our common commitment to jointly address this global crisis.”

    [Catholic Caucus] The Pope Cannot Depose Bishops Without Grave CauseEditor’s note: in light of the recent news that the Holy Father, after deposing Bishop Strickland, now allegedly intends to move against Cardinal Burke (again), we present this study in conjunction with Fr. Murray’s recent analysis of the Strickland case. Father Gerald Murray has excellently analyzed the canonical side of Bp. Strickland’s removal. He has demonstrated that the guarantee of due process has been violated. Canon 196 and other related canons were masterfully explained. I myself published a different article that I wrote before having read Father Murray’s analysis. I saw...
  • Pope Francis kicks conservative US Cardinal Raymond Burke out of his Vatican apartment and strips him of his salary after he criticized pontiff's pro-LGBT stance

    Pope Francis has kicked conservative US Cardinal Raymond Burke out of his Vatican apartment and stripped him of his salary after he criticized the pontiff's pro-LGBT stance. Francis has decided to punish Burke by revoking his right to a subsidized Vatican apartment and salary in the second such radical action against an American prelate this month, according to two sources. It is understood Francis told a meeting of the heads of Vatican offices last week that he was moving against Burke because he was a source of 'disunity' in the church, said one of the participants at the November 20...
  • All Christians, Not Just Catholics, Should Be Worried About Pope Francis’ Synod

    “There’s an unfortunate tendency among Catholics and Protestants alike to relish the misfortunes of the other. When some evangelical megachurch pastor ham-fistedly embraces the LGBT agenda, Catholics will quip that it was inevitable thanks to the Reformation. When Pope Francis appears to undermine orthodox Christian teaching in a garbled answer to some interviewer’s question, Protestants will snark about the “commie pope. Just last week, for example, a short (and admittedly disturbing) video clip of Pope Francis surrounded by scantily-clad circus performers made the rounds on social media, triggering predictable Protestant jeers like, “Never too late to join the Reformation!” But...

    Christ, Divine Judge & Just Destroyer: True vs. False Mercy Introduction by M. Matt: Left on its own, Tradition will reconquer the entire Catholic world. I am pleased to present the following sermon as Exhibit A. This sermon was presented by a diocesan priest whom I had never met but recently encountered while on the road. The reality is that, no matter where I travel, I encounter priests and congregations of faithful who are keeping the "old faith" regardless of what is happening in Rome. What follows is a sermon on the doctrine of mercy that may be the best...

    I regard him (Bergoglio) as an example of light thinking, a mixture of opportunism and foolish overvaluation of his own person. Nothing to be surprised about, were it not for his unhealthy and unscrupulous passion for office and power. God knows how many were his twists and turns and stoops to get to where he is today and how many were the trappings he donned to achieve his goals. However, there is one predominant feature in his career: his flirtation with leftism in all its variants

    [Catholic Caucus] Serious Catholics Refuse to Donate to Francis’ Vatikenstein — now it’s going broke.They want to annihilate Traditional Catholics, they persecute conservative bishops, they alienate serious priests, nuns, and seminarians, they ridicule Catholic morality, they name abortionists and perverts to official positions —they shouldn’t be shocked the faithful are fed up. No wonder Francis' monstrous Vatikenstein is going broke. From The Pillar:The Secretariat for the Economy, which requested the new rental policy, has yet to release financial results for 2022, or a projection for 2023, but sources close to the department have privately suggested the Holy See’s 3.3 million...

    ‘Traditionalism’ is a form ‘of a Pelagian selfishness that puts our own tastes and plans above the love that pleases God, the simple, humble and faithful love that Jesus asked of Peter,’ said Pope Francis.VATICAN CITY (LifeSiteNews) – Marking the 60th anniversary of the start of the Second Vatican Council, Pope Francis attacked “traditionalism” as being “evidence … of infidelity” to the Catholic Church. The Argentinian Pontiff made his remarks in his homily during a Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica on October 10, marking the 60th anniversary of the opening of the ecumenical Second Vatican Council.

    The Vatican is tying itself into knots in China Does its strategy mean that members of the underground Church will be left twisting in the wind?Last month Pope Francis appointed 20 new Cardinals at a consistory, a special meeting in Rome, bringing the world’s total to 226.One conspicuous absence was Hong Kong’s Cardinal Joseph Zen. His passport has been revoked while he awaits trial, charged with colluding with foreign powers and raising money for pro-democracy supporters. The trumped-up charges are clearly meant to intimidate critics of Beijing and opponents of the government’s heavy hand on the Catholic Church.German Cardinal...
