    Vatican Advisor: Francis Shows That Climate Alarmism Is “Not” a Leftwing CauseFrancis makes it "very clear" that climate alarmism is "not a partisan issue," the German economist Ottmar Edenhofer told leftwing TheGuardian.com (January 15).A former Jesuit, and professor of “Economics of Climate Change” in Berlin, Edenhofer was appointed as an advisor of the Vatican's Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development.In the Vatican, Edenhofer plans to propagate “climate refugees” and the idea that rich countries which are "more responsible" for toxic emissions should pay money to poor countries.Francis is for him an important influencer, "We cannot underestimate that the pope is...

    Confusion twice confounded: On the motu proprio Spiritus DominiThe underlying problem with this document is that it eviscerates the clear teaching of St. John Paul II in the post-synodal Apostolic Exhortation Christifideles Laici.Pope Francis’s latest motu proprio, Spiritus Domini, opens up the minor ministries of lector and acolyte to women. On the surface, this can look like much-ado-about nothing since females have been functioning as lectors and acolytes for decades now. Lord knows just about everyone has a grandmother who has been distributing Holy Communion for years on end.1However, there is much more that requires consideration here beyond persons performing...

    Earthquake: Francis decrees women can occupy the former Minor Orders of Lector and Acolyte | Update: Full Text of Motu ProprioSwedish Lutheran female "bishops"Of course, for us Traditional Catholics, the Minor Orders never ceased to exist. And for good reason: the last major dogmatic Council, Trent, mentions all seven orders explicitly in the Canons and decrees related to Session XXIII.But after Vatican II, the new elites severed the minor orders (Acolyte, Exorcist, Lector, and Porter) and one of the Major Orders (the Subdiaconate) from the Diaconate and Presbyterate. They became mere functions that could be performed by laymen, though...

    Pope Francis’s inclusion of ‘female ministries’ continues his pattern of ruptureIt is, one might say, another nail in the coffin of the Novus Ordo, detaching it still further from the patrimony of Latin-rite worship.I do not belong to that special class of people who claim to have known, the moment Jorge Mario Bergoglio stepped out on the loggia of St. Peter’s, that we were in for a terrible time. However, within the first year, there was already evidence that the cardinals had elected a modernist, a proponent of rupture, of liberation theology and socialism; and as the years went on,...

    If Francis is a Heretic, What should Canonically happen to him?If Francis is a Heretic, What should Canonically happen to him? Did Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (the future Pope Benedict XVI) say that Francis is a heretic? On June 3, 2003 the then Cardinal Ratzinger (and future Pope Benedict), head of the Congregation for the Faith, said that the endorsement of "homosex civil unions" was against Catholic teaching, that is heterodoxy: "Those who would move from tolerance to the legitimatization of specific rights for cohabiting homosexual persons need to be reminded that the approval or legalization of evil is something...

    [Catholic Caucus] Seminarians Fighting BackLonging for justiceFor decades, scores of victims brought forward complaints of clerical sexual abuse, only to find themselves revictimized by Church leaders. Victims, who had the courage to confront those who enabled their abuse as minors, found their voices hushed by threats of what might happen to them should they reveal their plights or even think of suing the Church. The Spotlight team of The Boston Globe took this challenge head-on in its 2002 exposé of the abuse crisis that has since proven to be of epic proportions. The Catholic Church in the United States alone...

    Phrancis, Phisher of MenReaders might remember the “phishing” scheme that replaced telemarketing as the World’s Most Annoying Thing back in the aughts. The way the scam usually works is that a con artist sends out e-mails designed to look exactly like notifications from real banks, corporations, or government agencies. The e-mail asks the recipient—who believes he or she is communicating with a legitimate entity—to update passwords or provide other personal information. It’s a variety of the old bait-and-switch operation: an unsuspecting victim thinks one thing is going on, all above board and on the level, when in reality he or...

    Let's pray that fashion's pope falls out of favor and a real one can come inWashington -- It is Christmastime. The citizenry goes out to churches and, if they are lucky, public places to be inspired by Nativity scenes. I spent Saturday in the countryside of northern Virginia and saw Nativity scenes not only in front of churches and public places but also in front of private homes -- many, many private homes. There were almost as many Nativity scenes visible in front of private homes in towns such as Strasburg and Winchester as there were Trump signs, Trump flags...

Some of the novelties arising in the crisis, he said, come from the Holy Spirit. In his annual Christmas greeting to the Curia, the 84-year-old Argentinian pontiff said today that the crisis in the Church “is a necessary moment.” Crises should not be confused with conflicts, he stated. “Crisis generally has a...
