    [Catholic Caucus] Italian Synod: Sin and Vice are the Points of DeparturePerugia Cardinal Gualtiero Bassetti, the President of the Italian bishops, presented Francis with a proposal for a synod for Italy.Francis received Bassetti with four more Italian bishops on February 27. Bassetti told VaticanNews.va that this synod will “listen to people’s lives in order to draw up proposals.” Were the synod Catholic, it would be the other way around: listening to God’s revelation in order to change peoples' lives.For years, Francis has called on the Italian bishops to start a synod but they dragged their feet. In January he lost...

On the other hand, Francis himself says that shepherds must smell of sheep and that they need to follow the sensus fidelium, rather than impose a direction on them. It seems that now he leaves the field even more open for the controversy about the points that really matter: gender ideology, gayzism, religious syncretism and, above all, the money that is under it all.What they didn't expect was for the people to be as awake as they are. The cry of alert was given,...

Revenues declined in 2020 by 4-8%.Maier spoke to 31 bishops from the US and 2 from other anglophone countries (FirstThings.com, February 22).The bishops expect a 25-40% permanent fall-off in Mass attendance, and have not noticed any uptick in people’s concern about the afterlife due to Covid-19.Maier found that worrying about the negative spirit and potential damage of the Biden regime was “unanimous.”All bishops expressed a "sincere fidelity" to Francis...

    Our Action Required - Another Actual Priest Thrown Under The Bus In The Archdiocese Of WashingtonThanks to Canon 212, I became aware of this situation in La Plata, MD. Father Larry Swink, pastor of Sacred Heart parish, came to the defense of a pro-life student at Archbishop Neale school in Port Tobacco who was being bullied in the school for his pro-life stance. Let that sink in for a moment. The student was being bullied in a Catholic school for being pro-life. The parents of the bullies didn't take too kindly to Father putting a stop to the marauding of...

    Vatican Papal Academy Sells Out the Virgin Mary for MuhammadThe same folks to bring you "Abrahamism"—the idea that Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are intricately connected—have narrowed their sights on promoting Mary, the mother of Christ, as "a Jewish, Christian and Muslim woman," in the words of Catholic priest Fr. Gian Matteo of the Pontifical International Marian Academy. In a ten-week webinar series titled "Mary, a model for faith and life for Christianity and Islam," the academy will seek to present Mary as a bridge between the two religions.This is easier said than done — at least for those still interested...

    Rome Without A Pope: Jorge Mario Bergoglio is There, but not Peter.Rome is without a pope. The thesis that I intend to support can be summarized in these five words. When I say Rome, I am not referring only to the city of which the pope is the bishop. When I say Rome, I mean the world; I mean the present reality.The pope, although physically present, in reality is not there, because he does not do what the pope does. He is there, but he does not perform his duty as successor of Peter and vicar of Christ. Jorge Mario...

    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...

Benedict XVI allowed its celebration also in other parts of the basilica.Rorate-Caeli.Blogspot.com (January 23) has learned that “those venerable practices may be about to be...

    All the Synods of Pope Francis. But There’s Not a One of Them That WorksFrancis is the most autocratic pope of the past century, the one most inclined to do and undo everything himself, yet he never stops calling for a synodal government of the Church. No matter that of the three great synods he has called up to now, two have resulted in a stalemate, on young people and on the Amazon, and another, on the family, was brazenly steered from the top down. He has decided to dedicate the next synod, scheduled for 2022, precisely to the question...

As we said before, so now I say again: if anyone preach to you a gospel, besides that which you have received, let him be...

In a message, he noted that pulses are a “noble food,” are “devoid of pride,” and reflect “no luxury” while they strengthen global food security.Francis called to "be vigorous and resilient like legumes".A priest commented to Gloria.tv, “Francis should urgently write an encyclical about the benefits of lettuce.”
