    The Last of Us actress Bella Ramsey recently told viewers to avoid watching the show if they are not comfortable with viewing sinful acts of grave depravity. Ramsey spoke with GQ Magazine, where she revealed the show will feature a plethora of acts of grave depravity going forward. She told the outlet, “I know people will think what they want to think. But they’re gonna have to get used to it. If you don’t want to watch the show because it has gay storylines, because it has a trans character, that’s on you, and you’re missing out.” “It isn’t gonna...

    The ‘Synodal Way’ wants to reverse Catholic teaching on homosexuality. Here’s why that’s impossibleThe Church's teaching is unchangeable, and same-sex behavior can't be reconciled with human nature, created by God as a communion of male and female.(LifeSiteNews) – The German “Synodal Way” and its allies within the Church are hellbent – seemingly more so every day – on changing Catholic doctrine regarding homosexuality.A leader of the “Synodal Way” indeed recently acknowledged that the heterodox initiative is intended as a direct challenge to the Church’s teaching on this issue.Marc Frings, the secretary-general of the Central Committee of German Catholics, a leading...

    [Catholic Caucus] Is This the End? Francis’ Vatican Promotes SuicideJesuit Father Carlo Casalone, professor for immoral theology at the Gregorian University, urges the Church in LaCiviltaCattolica.it (January 15) to support an [immoral] assisted suicide legislation (“consensual homicide”) in Italy.Marie-José Thiel, professor for immoral theology in Strasbourg, France, explained in the oligarchs’ LeMonde.fr (January 31) that Casalone could not have taken this position “without the approval of the Holy See.”She also believes assisted suicide should be allowed “to avoid a worse evil” like assisted suicide on request. Thiel seems to be the only one not realising that this will precisely be...

    New Zealand bishops tell priests to ‘accompany’ Catholics who choose assisted suicideThe two letters were described as ‘appalling’ and appear to contradict previous Papal teachings.(LifeSiteNews) – New Zealand’s bishops have urged priests to ensure the “accompaniment” of those seeking to end their lives through assisted suicide, stating that it is a “sign of good intent” when such patients seek “spiritual accompaniment.”The document “Ministers of Consolation and Hope,” written by the New Zealand Catholic Bishops Conference (NZC), presents guidelines for clergy “to accompany those contemplating euthanasia or assisted dying.”An additional document, the pastoral statement “Bearers of Consolation and Hope,” was issued...

    Catholic Senator Dick Durbin Denied Communion Because He Supports Killing Babies in AbortionsSen. Dick Durbin, a pro-abortion Democrat, complained this week that his Catholic diocese is being “fundamentally unfair” by denying him Communion.Townhall reports the Illinois politician said his home diocese, the Diocese of Springfield, has refused to allow him to participate in the sacrament since 2004 because of his pro-abortion stance.“It’s not a happy experience,” he told America Magazine. “I found another Catholic venue, the Archdiocese of Chicago, and a church where they were willing to let me in and allowed my wife to join me. So it’s become...

    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...

    [Catholic Caucus] Judie Brown reacts to Paglia's support for assisted suicide Judie Brown reacts to paglia's support for assisted suicide By Judie BrownDecember 12, 2019 We have learned that "Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, president of the Pontifical Academy for Life, said Tuesday that he would be willing to hold the hand of someone dying from assisted suicide, and that he does not see that as lending implicit support for the practice." It is unclear why Paglia would say such a thing given the fact that the act of assisted suicide, a form of euthanasia, is an assault on the dignity of...

    A Reminder that Fornication is a Serious Sin that Can Exclude Us From Heaven Msgr. Charles Pope • October 29, 2018 • The epistle from Monday’s daily Mass (30th Week of the Year) contains an admonition against unchastity. This grave warning is essential in times like these, when many call good or “no big deal” what God calls sinful. This is especially true in the realm of sexuality; entire sectors of society not only tolerate but even celebrate sexual practices that Scripture calls gravely sinful and that will lead to Hell if not repented of. Homosexual acts, fornication, and...

    A Brief Reflection on Mortal Sin Msgr. Charles Pope • July 18, 2018 • The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches,[M]ortal sin destroys charity in the heart of man by a grave violation of God’s law; it turns man away from God, who is his ultimate end and his beatitude, by preferring an inferior good to him. In mortal sin the will sets itself upon something that is of its nature incompatible with the charity that orients man toward his ultimate end. As such, the sin is mortal by its very object whether it contradicts the love of God,...

    I am going to risk a prediction: 2018 will be the year we see an end to the fighting over Amoris Laetitia.This might seem rather presumptuous, given that just this week five bishops have underscored the Church’s traditional teaching on the reception of Communion by the divorced and remarried. The bishops’ statement is a positive delight to read for its clarity of thought and expression – especially after some of the tortured sophistries we have had to endure of late.The document unflinchingly reminds us that some things are just wrong, and no amount of personal reflection or mitigating circumstances can...

    María Clemencia Rodríguez Múnera, 61, the adulterous wife of Columbian President Juan Manuel Santos published on Twitter a video showing how Pope Francis, during his Columbia trip, blesses her and her adulterous husband.

Santos belongs to a well-established, influential family of Colombia. He is a strong supporter of gay pseudo-marriage.

    And he really was red! The memory still stings: there I was, age 7, the veteran of a splendidly moving and memorable First Holy Communion and graced with an oddball love of the sacrament of Confession in all of its velvet-curtained-sliding-screen ambiance, planning to steal a toy “lady’s fan” from a candy store, simply to see if I could. The fan was red, and I had always been — and still am — a sucker for all things red. It was airy, lacy and flamboyant, and I had the 10 cents the thing cost in my pocket.But the toy...
