    The Washington Post ^ | January 7, 2022 | Sarah Pulliam Bailey
    Pope Francis has sent an encouraging letter to an American nun thanking her for her 50 years of ministry to LGBTQ Catholics, more than two decades after she was investigated and censured by the Vatican for her work. In his letter dated Dec. 10, Francis wrote that Sister Jeannine Gramick has not been afraid of “closeness” and without condemning anyone had the “tenderness” of a sister and a mother. “Thank you, Sister Jeannine, for all your closeness, compassion and tenderness,” he wrote. He also noted her “suffering ... without condemning anyone.” Gramick, who lives just outside of Washington, D.C., in...
  • Pope Francis: We Cannot Hide from Migrants ‘Behind Walls and Barbed Wires’(popeadopalis)

    Pope Francis railed against the “dehumanization” of migrants Monday, calling for a shared responsibility among European nations in welcoming migrants. In the face of increasing movements of migration, “we cannot be indifferent or hide behind walls and barbed wires under the pretext of defending security or a style of life,” the pope told members of the Diplomatic Corps accredited to the Holy See in Monday’s annual address. “I thank all those individuals and governments working to ensure that migrants are welcomed and protected,” the pontiff stated, “and to support their human promotion and integration in the countries that have received...

    Here is what it says: “Can. 1373 A person who publicly incites among subjects animosities or hatred against the Apostolic See or an ordinary because of some act of power or ecclesiastical ministry or provokes subjects to disobey them is to be punished by an interdict or other just penalties.” This new canon was newly inserted into the code on December 8, 2021, just a few days before the responsa ad dubium in regard to the draconian, unprecedented and highly controversial Traditionis Custodes which makes clear that our Catholic tradition is no longer in favor in high places. I wonder...

In this regard, anyone with suggestions or information can write to : we will...
  • Vatican Source: ‘Pope is Dying’, Conclave Prep underway, credible Journalist reports

    12/07/2021 2:34:11 PM PST · by BusterDog · 122 replies
    Gizzi writes that a “secretary of one of the most powerful Vatican Cardinals” told him straightfowardly: “Pope Francis is dying.” Furthermore, Gizzi asserts that sources inside the Vatican do not expect Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) to see the end of next year, 2022, and are in “pre-Conclave mode”. Without more details, one can only speculate as to what exactly the situation is, but apparently Francis is said to be terminally ill and not expected to live another 13 months for that reason. A diagnosis has not been revealed or rumored, but colon cancer would be a possibility, considering Bergoglio’s colon surgery...

    ROME — Pope Francis urged the Christians of Cyprus Friday to bear witness to Jesus Christ but never to proselytize.Proselytism — or the attempt to convert others to one’s faith — is different from evangelization, the pope suggested, which is the joyful witness of one’s experience of Christ.Speaking at Mass in Nicosia, the pontiff reflected on the day’s gospel reading that recounts the healing of two blind men, who, despite being “sternly” warned by Jesus not to talk about their cure, spread the news throughout the region.“There is a bit of irony in this fact: Jesus had told them not...

    BBC News ^ | December 5, 2021
    The Pope has denounced "narrow self-interest and nationalism" over the way Europe treats migrants. Speaking on the Greek island of Lesbos, where he met dozens of migrants, Pope Francis said they were being used for political propaganda. He urged focus on the causes of migration, such as "forgotten wars", instead of punishing those who feel their effects. And he criticised the building of walls to keep people out. "In Europe there are those who persist in treating the problem as a matter that does not concern them - this is tragic," he said. "History teaches us that narrow self-interest and...

    ROME — Pope Francis traveled to the island nation of Cyprus Thursday, where he told a gathering of priests and religious that there are “no walls in the Catholic Church.” The Church is catholic, “that is, universal, an open space in which all are welcomed and reached by the mercy of God and the invitation to love,” the pontiff asserted in the Maronite Cathedral of Our Lady of Grace in Nicosia.

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—In a stunning reveal, Dr. Fauci has appeared on camera in an ornate and funny hat, and is now declaring himself the "Pope of Science." "Look at my shiny hat! Woooo-ooo! I have been chosen by science to speak on behalf of science!" said Pope Fauci. "My very words are as infallible as the natural laws of the universe itself! If anyone doesn't like me, or disagrees with anything I say, or makes fun of my glasses, they will be excommunicated—banished to everlasting darkness." Fauci's eyes then rolled back in his head as he began uttering in a dead...

    If you are pregnant and in need, come to the Catholic Church! That was the message of Cardinal John O'Connor 30 years ago when he founded the Sisters of Life in New York. That community of Catholic nuns were founded to protect and enhance the sanctity of human life. The Sisters today are in the New York metropolitan area, Phoenix, Denver, Philadelphia, Toronto and Washington, D.C. But they are far from the only resources available to women. There are over 2,700 pro-life pregnancy care centers in the United States. At the recent U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Kansas City bishop...

  • As Biden Met With the Pope, His DOJ Filed a Brief Claiming the Right To Abort a Baby With a Beating Heart

    The activities of the Biden administration this past Friday featured two remarkable and profoundly contradictory events. In Rome, resident Joe Biden met with Pope Francis. In Washington, his Justice Department filed a brief with the Supreme Court arguing there is a "right" to kill an unborn baby with a beating heart. What transpired in Washington that day was in reaction to what happened in Texas this spring. On May 19, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed Senate Bill 8, the "Texas Heartbeat Act." This law declared that "a physician may not knowingly perform or induce an abortion on a pregnant woman...

    VATICAN CITY—President Biden emerged from his meeting with Pope Francis greatly relieved and brimming with joy, claiming that the Holy Father had requested Biden’s son, the great artist Hunter, repaint the dated Sistine Chapel ceiling. “We’ve been planning a remodel for about 1,000 years,” the Pope reportedly told President Biden, “but we just never felt we had the right artist. It would be an honor to have such a devout Catholic and brilliant child protégé complete the epic task.” The Papal Committee for Making the Church More Culturally Relevant (PCFMTCMCR) has been seeking ways to make the church more acceptable...

    Former President Donald Trump mocked President Biden for appearing to fall asleep Monday before his speech at an international climate change conference in Scotland. Trump implied the snooze indicates Biden doesn’t truly believe global warming is a dire threat. “Even Biden couldn’t stand hearing so much about the Global Warming Hoax, the 7th biggest Hoax in America, followed closely behind by the 2020 Presidential Election Scam, Russia, Russia, Russia, Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax #2 and, of course, the ‘No Collusion’ finding of the Mueller Report,” Trump said in an email blast. “Biden went to Europe saying...

    President Joe Biden effusively praised Pope Francis on Sunday, reflecting on his personal audience he had at the Vatican on Friday. “He is everything I learned about Catholicism from the time I was a kid going from grade school through high school,” Biden said. The president spoke about Pope Francis at a press conference with reporters in Europe after the G20 Summit. “This is a man of great empathy. He’s a man who understands that part of his Christianity is to reach out and forgive,” Biden said.
  • Holy Crap! Biden Reportedly Poops His Pants While Meeting With Pope

    On Friday, Joe Biden met with Pope Francis at the Vatican. Mysteriously, the TV feed was abruptly cut off by officials, and video of Biden speaking with the Pope never made it to viewers. I did happen to see Jack Posobiec’s tweet about the incident on Friday, but I had since long forgotten about it. Later on Saturday evening, news began to break that Biden had reportedly lost control of his bowels and was rushed to the bathroom by his staff. The story has been corroborated by multiple sources, and there appears to be mounting evidence that the 78-year-old demented...
