    FIRST ON THE DAILY SIGNAL—The bishop of Pittsburgh is calling for a “Pride Mass” to be canceled, emphasizing that “independent sponsors” promoted the event to coincide with the secular Pride Month. The Mass was scheduled to take place on June 11, at 1 p.m. at Duquesne Holy Spirit Chapel, presided over by a Father Doug Boud (who did not respond to requests for comment). Fliers obtained by The Daily Signal said the event was co-hosted by various groups, including Catholics for Change in Our Church and the LGBTQ Ministry at St. Joseph the Worker. Those fliers also stated that the...

    Seven shootings over the weekend, including a massacre at a Dallas-area outlet mall over the weekend, brought the total number of mass shootings in the U.S. this year over 200, according to the non-profit Gun Violence Archive (GVA). According to its tracker, there have been 202 incidents in which four or more people, other than the attacker, were shot this year alone. The U.S. crossed the 200-mass shooting threshold mid-May last year and the year prior, and didn’t get there until mid-to-late June in 2020 and 2019. Between 2016 and 2018, the country passed 200 mass shootings in late July.

    Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) latest gun control push includes the claim that there have been “over a dozen” mass shootings in America since Friday. Pelosi tweeted this claim Tuesday and did not include any citation to substantiate it: We have had over a dozen mass shooting since last Friday, leaving families and communities devastated — and still, Republicans would rather ban books than assault weapons. Democrats will never stop fighting to keep America's children safe from guns. -NP — Nancy Pelosi (@TeamPelosi) May 2, 2023 The Associated Press, USA Today, and Northeastern University maintain a database of mass shootings, defining...

    On the feared date of 3 April, no new Roman document with further restrictions on the traditional liturgy has appeared. However, according to our source in Rome, this in no way means that no corresponding regulations will be issued. Perhaps Francis' hospitalisation upset the original timetable, perhaps there were last-minute changes - but the document, already rumoured since January, is now apparently ready and its publication can be expected in a few days, weeks at best.

    There are many fierce, hungry tigers living near your home and they are stalking your children. How best to protect your young ones: declaw the tigers, or equip your home with strong defenses so they cannot enter, and if they do they will be stopped dead? This is the essential question tragically raised once again in the bloody wake of the Tennessee Christian elementary school massacre. Anti-gun media talking heads, Democrat legislators, government officials, teachers’ Union chieftain Randi Weingarten, and Democrat gun-haters in general as usual are claiming the only way to stop these horrific attacks is declaw the tigers...

    CNN used misleading data from the Gun Violence Archive to claim Monday “the U.S. has surpassed 100 mass shootings in 2023.” CNN noted, “America reached the grim number by the first week of March.” Both CNN and the Gun Violence Archive departed from the standard definition for mass shootings, which the Rand Corporation observed as being derived from the FBI’s 1980s definition of a “mass murderer” of an individual who “kills four or more people in a single incident (not including himself).”

    Who can dispense with the regulations of "Traditionis custodes"? Pope Francis makes it clear that only the liturgical dicastery can do so. With the new decree now published, the Vatican can reclaim many local special permissions for the Old Mass. Pope Francis has determined that the dispensational power for Mass celebrations in the pre-conciliar form rests with the Apostolic See. A decree of the Pope published on Tuesday states that only the Vatican can grant dispensations for such Mass celebrations in parish churches or for the establishment of corresponding personal parishes.

    At least seven people were shot early Saturday, three of them fatally, in what turned out to be gun-controlled “California’s fourth mass shooting in a week,” CNN reported. The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to calls for help at 2:35 a.m. and discovered three people shot to death “just outside of Beverly Hills.” ABC 7 noted that there were also “multiple 911 calls of a shooting with people down.” The shooting is believed to have occurred in front of a residence, which ABC 7 described as “a short-term rental.” Two of the four wounded individuals are in critical condition, and...

    This weekend, I watched the breaking news reports from Southern California with a mixture of shock, disbelief and anger. On Saturday night, what had been a gathering to celebrate the Lunar New Year in a Los Angeles suburb became the scene of a massacre. By Sunday, President Biden had issued a statement, noting: “While there is still much we don’t know about the motive in this senseless attack, we do know that many families are grieving tonight, or praying that their loved one will recover from their wounds.” I am from Monterey Park, Calif. I am struggling to process a...

    On Sunday, the day after five people were shot and killed at Colorado Springs’ Club Q, Newsmax pointed to misleading data and claimed there have been over 600 “mass shootings” in 2022. The title of Newsmax’s November 20 article is “2022 on Record Pace With 601 Mass Shootings to Date.” Newsmax arrived at this elevated number of mass shootings by relying on the Gun Violence Archive (GVA), which counts incidents in which there are “a minimum of four victims shot, either injured or killed, not including any shooter who may also have been killed or injured in the incident,” as...

    At least some Massachusetts state employees who were fired after refusing to be vaccinated against COVID-19, under Gov. Charlie Baker’s sweeping executive order last year, are being offered their jobs back. In two separate letters shared with MassLive, former MassDOT employees who were terminated due to the mandate were offered reinstatement to their former positions with “duties and responsibilities” the same as when they left. In the letters, MassDOT Chief Human Resources Officer Matthew Knosp wrote the department was making the offers, in part, because “high levels of immunity and availability of effective COVID-19 prevention and management tools have reduced...

    AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Rocketing energy bills and a shortage of priests have driven a Dutch Roman Catholic Diocese to cut down on religious services in some churches. The southern Diocese of Roermond, which oversee roughly 290 churches in the province of Limburg, wrote to its parishes last week to encourage some to periodically skip Mass, spokesman Matheu Bemelmans said on Thursday. "Finances cannot be a dominant factor, but we cannot ignore them either. If you only have a handful of people each donating a euro ($1), that's not enough to cover the heating bill," Bemelmans said. Numbers of churchgoers and...
