    Oklahoma 16-year-old Nex Benedict died by suicide, according to an autopsy report released Wednesday by the state's Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. Benedict, a member of the 2SLGBTQ community, died one day after getting into a physical fight with several other students at Owasso High School. Benedict was nonbinary and went by they/them pronouns, according to Benedict's family. 2SLGBTQ includes Two Spirit, an umbrella term used to describe a third gender in Native and Indigenous communities. Sue Benedict, their mother, is a registered member of the Choctaw Nation. [snip] The Department of Education has opened an investigation into Owasso...

    The newly disclosed video shows a dark SUV pulling up to the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee in Washington, D.C., at 9:44 a.m. on Jan. 6, 2021. It sits for several minutes until a uniformed man with a bomb-sniffing dog enters from the right and steps up to the vehicle. The driver complies with his command, the dog sniffs inside and outside the car which is soon allowed to enter the parking garage. The man and his dog exit back to the right.This scene is unremarkable except for one detail: The uniformed man and his trained canine came within...

    Newly released video shows the 16-year-old nonbinary student who died the day after a fight in an Oklahoma high school bathroom recounting the events leading up to the brawl to a cop — who said the teen “essentially started it.” Nex Benedict appeared conscious and alert in the police bodycam footage as they sat in a hospital bed during police questioning after their bullies allegedly bashed their head against the floor. The sophomore and their mother told an Owasso school course officer that a group of girls that had been “antagonizing” them in the days before had been picking on...

    [Catholic Caucus] Francis' Obsession with Vestments ContinuesFashion style is a recurring obsession in Francis' "Magisterium", for example when he repeatedly tells priests and seminarians what to wear and what not to wear.This obsession has reached a new level. A year after the death of Benedict XVI, the supreme commander of Santa Marta ordered his master of ceremonies and the staff of the sacristy of St Peter's to remove the coat of arms of Benedict XVI from a set of chasubles in four of the five liturgical colours, writes (31 December).The coat of arms will be replaced by the tiara...

    Your Excellency, this year marks ten years since the resignation of Pope Benedict. There is enormous moral and doctrinal chaos in many countries of the world - in Europe, in Germany, and especially in the USA and Latin America. I am of course talking about the Church. Should we not perhaps yearn for the calm, theological reflection of Pope Benedict? Don't we need today his sense of the Church's tradition? You have now outlined a picture, which looks somewhat dramatic. From my point of view, the situation is very turbulent indeed, and in turbulent times it is important to have...

    After the interview book by Archbishop Georg Gänswein with Saverio Gaeta, which the Mondadori publishing house began to aggressively market immediately after the death of Pope Benedict XVI, a new book on the late pontiff has now been published in Italy by Orazio La Rocca at San Paolo Edizioni. It is entitled "Ratzinger. La Scelta. Non sono scappato' - I dieci anni di Benedetto XVI da Papa emerito" ("Ratzinger. The Decision. 'I have not fled' - The ten years of Benedict XVI as Pope Emeritus"). Gänswein wrote the author a preface to it last September 2022, which we publish here...

    A previously unknown correspondence shows that Joseph Ratzinger, as head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, knew about Peter H.'s abuses in 1986 at the latest. Despite this, the priest was still employed in pastoral care. As head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the then Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger and later Pope Benedict XVI had information about the sexual offences committed by the priest Peter H. against children as early as 1986, research by CORRECTIV and BR shows. This emerges from a previously unknown Vatican document that CORRECTIV and Bayerischer Rundfunk were able to...

    The deeply troubling history of the Catholic Integrated Community The Katholische Integrierte Gemeinde – Catholic Integrated Community (KIG) was founded in 1965. The beginnings of the community go back to 1945, when the initiator Traudl Wallbrecher developed her idea of a new beginning in the church linked to Jewish-Christian roots as a response to the Holocaust. In 1948, Traudl Weiß, the leader of the federation at the time, left the Heliand Girls' Federation with around 60 other members. After her marriage to the lawyer Herbert Wallbrecher, a childhood friend of Johannes Degenhardt, this developed into the nucleus of the later...

    Italian Report Claims Pope Benedict Never Abdicated to Pope Francis – In His Last Book Benedict Warned About the Attack on Christians Pope Benedict was an old man when Pope Francis was picked by the cardinals while Benedict was still alive. Scholars share this while others point out that Benedict warned about what will soon happen to Christians. An interesting article out of Italy claims that Pope Benedict did not abdicate his title to the cardinals and was the true pope till his death. The article translated from Italian says: Let’s remember one of the last messages of Pope Ratzinger:...

    [Catholic Caucus] "The Death of Benedict XVI: The Failure of the Hermeneutic of Continuity"Much has been said about Benedict XVI in recent weeks. The major newspapers, not very complacent, have recalled that he was called "panzercardinal" when he was the Pope's guarantor of dogma. The more conservative media hailed him as the architect of liturgical pacification, the one who had the merit of publishing the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum. Perhaps we forget that with his death, a real page in the history of the Church is being turned, since with him the last great actor of Vatican II has disappeared....

    Pope Benedict Issues Warning From The Grave, Penned 16 Essays To Be Released Only After His Death Warns Of Radical Manipulation, Gender Ideology, Sexual Perversion At Catholic Seminaries, Western Authoritarianism And Other Grave ConcernsBeloved Pope Benedict XVI passed away at the age of 95 on New Year’s Eve but left a warning behind. A book of essays penned by the Pope was published in the wake of his death but largely suppressed in the West, likely because it issues a grave warning regarding propaganda and woke ideology infiltrating the West. Benedict’s essays were written to warn people, and Catholics in...

It has been openly acknowledged by ALL SIDES that there was an unspoken RESTRAINT against any full-out attempt to utterly and...

    Father, into your hands I commend my spirit” (Lk 23:46). These were the final words spoken by the Lord on the cross; his last breath, as it were, which summed up what had been his entire life: a ceaseless self-entrustment into the hands of his Father. His were hands of forgiveness and compassion, healing and mercy, anointing and blessing, which led him also to entrust himself into the hands of his brothers and sisters. The Lord, open to the individuals and their stories that he encountered along the way, allowed himself to be shaped by the Father’s will. He shouldered...

Does Vatican II mark the beginning of a break with tradition...

The German-born Benedict, formerly Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, lived in Italy for more than 40 years, beginning in 1981. The Holy See Press Office confirmed on Dec....
