    ROME — U.S. climate czar John Kerry met with Pope Francis in the Vatican this weekend in preparation for the upcoming U.N. climate conference in Glasgow. The pope “is one of the great voices of reason and compelling moral authority on the subject of the climate crisis,” Kerry told Vatican News. “He’s been ahead of the curve. He’s been a leader. His encyclical Laudato Si is really a very, very powerful document, eloquent and morally very persuasive.”

    WASHINGTON — Former Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio, shocked the country when he announced his resignation from Congress in 2015 and in a recent interview, he recounted how the historic visit of Pope Francis to the U.S. Capitol accelerated his decision to step down. In an April 25 interview by Punchbowl News on his recently-published memoir, On the House, Boehner explained that he had considered retiring from Congress since before the 2014 elections. He had served in Congress for nearly 24 years at that point, including almost four years as House Speaker, a length of time which he...

    ROME — Pope Francis told financiers Thursday they must help calculate the “ecological debt” the global north owes to the global south. We cannot overlook “the ‘ecological debt’ that exists especially between the global north and south,” the pontiff said in a letter to participants in a meeting of the World Bank Group and International Monetary Fund.

    In a recent video by the Jesuit magazine America, it is admitted that Vatican 2 and the New Mass of 1969 (Novus Ordo Missae) is a RUPTURE and that the Tridentine Catholic theology of the 16th century is no longer welcome by Modernist heresiarchs in the NewChurch. James Martin, Pope Francis, and the Jesuit complex infiltrating Rome don't want the Traditional Latin Mass for THEOLOGICAL REASONS. ...

    ROME— Pope Francis accepted the resignation of Cardinal Robert Sarah as head of the Vatican’s office for liturgy, removing an outspoken conservative and possible future pope from the ranks of Vatican leadership. The Holy See Press Office announced Saturday that Cardinal Sarah had stepped down. No successor has been named. The cardinal submitted his resignation as required by church law when he turned 75 on June 15 of last year. But the pope frequently lets cardinals serve two or three years past that age, though not past 80. Last June, the cardinal wrote on Twitter: “For my part, I am...

    One of the best things about the papacy of Pope Francis has been the rediscovered honesty of some of the dissident bishops in the Church. Under the papacies of John Paul II and Benedict XVI, many prelates hid their heterodox views. But under Pope Francis, they feel free to show their true colors or one might say come out of the closet. ...

    The inauguration of Joe Biden, the nation's second Catholic president and a regular churchgoer, not surprisingly resulted in a slew of secular media coverage of the president's faith, as religion reporters seem to breathe a sigh of relief that the new commander in chief actually practices religion, rather than crassly abuses it. Biden's invitation of Washington Cardinal Wilton Gregory to pray at an Inauguration Day eve memorial to honor those who have died of COVID-19, combined with his decision to start Jan. 20 with morning Mass at the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle, set the tone for what portends...

    The Mature Fruits of Vatican IIWith his inauguration as President of the United States, Joe Biden solidified his standing as the world’s second most prominent nominal Catholic. He and the world’s most prominent nominal Catholic, Pope Francis, likely have many differing viewpoints but are united in their untiring dedication to misrepresenting unambiguous Catholic truth. In this regard, President Biden and Pope Francis are the mature fruits of Vatican II.Their fellow traveler, Cardinal Blase Cupich, rushed to the defense of President Biden after Archibishop Jose Gomez, president of the U.S.C.C.B., called out Biden’s longstanding positions on abortion, contraception, marriage, and gender....

Addressing “social justice judges” from the African and American continents via streaming, the pope congratulated them for their commitment to “social rights,” asserting that the very fact that men and women “come together to think about their work and to build the new social justice is, without a doubt, excellent news.”

    Oh, you devil! A bikini model has claimed that Pope Francis’ Instagram account liked a racy photo of her dressed in stockings and suspenders. Natalia Garibotto, 27, said the pontiff’s verified Franciscus account was among the 133,000 that “liked” an image of her standing at a school locker with a white crop-top and a skirt barely reaching her behind. “My mum may hate my ass pics but the Pope be double-tapping,” the Brazilian joked with Barstool Sports, which also claimed to have seen the apparent papal seal of approval before it was removed.

    The Biden-Harris Transition team announced Thursday that Mr. Biden had spoken by telephone with Pope Francis, who offered him “blessings and congratulations.” The press release does not specify who initiated the call, but only that “President-elect Joe Biden spoke this morning with His Holiness Pope Francis.” Since, however, the pope as a rule does not call to congratulate people for political victories, it must be assumed that the Biden team made the call.

    Bishop Schneider: Pachamama worship in Rome was ‘prepared by Assisi meetings’ These words are helpful in light of the new papal encyclical on ‘fraternity.’ October 6, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – In a recent interview, Bishop Athanasius Schneider discussed the link between the inter-religious meetings that have taken place since 1986 with the active participation of Popes in Assisi and the worship of the Pachamama statues in the Vatican Gardens in the presence of Pope Francis. While the latter is worse – since the idolatry took place in the presence of a Pope – the prelate explained, the multiple inter-religious gatherings in...

    Biden enabled about the most virulently pro-choice Democrat by selecting her to be his running mate, thereby being a partaker in her works of darkness, no worse and no better than being pro-choice himself. And where are his legislative works to try and end or curtail abortion? Where is his support for pro-life Republicans, his calling for Dems to enact a pro-life party platform, his saying he will nominate pro-life judges etc? So if these Catholics say they are truly Catholic then why enable Biden and thereby seem to commit mortal sin? I'm surprised they aren't voting third party so...

    The Pope has declared that the Catholic Church will no longer accept any donations its members give out of their wealth earned by capitalism. The declaration takes effect immediately. Catholic parishes are asked to monitor donations given during the offertory. Parishioners are to fill out a form stating where they got the money. If it did not come from the government, but rather, an evil, capitalist job, the money is to be given back to the church member. "We don't want your dirty capitalist pig dollars," said Pope Francis. "Keep your money earned by oppressing workers and minorities. Only money...

    Devotion to sacred Scripture, a “living and tender love” for the written word of God: this is the legacy that Saint Jerome bequeathed to the Church by his life and labours. Now, on the sixteen hundredth anniversary of his death, those words taken from the opening prayer of his liturgical Memorial[1] give us an essential insight into this outstanding figure in the Church’s history and his immense love for Christ. That “living and tender love” flowed, like a great river feeding countless streams, into his tireless activity as a scholar, translator and exegete. Jerome’s profound knowledge of the Scriptures, his...
