    Archbishop Viganò reacts to Pope Francis saying all must take the COVID vaccineConsiderations by Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò on the promotion of the vaccine by the Holy See.January 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — A few days ago, an interview was broadcast on Canale5 in which Jorge Mario Bergoglio appeared in the unusual role of sponsor of the pharmaceutical companies. We had already seen him in the role of politician, of trade unionist, of promoter of uncontrolled immigration, of supporter of welcoming illegal immigrants, and of philanthropist. In all of these metamorphoses what has always emerged, alongside his capacity to totally remove...

    Argentina’s Senate approved a bill to legalize abortion Wednesday in an historic vote seen as a major victory for abortion rights advocates in the Catholic-majority country. The Senate voted 38-29 to give millions of women access to legal terminations under a new law supported by President Alberto Fernández. The margin was expected to be much smaller. Massive crowds of abortion rights activists and anti-abortion campaigners gathered outside the Palace of the Argentine National Congress to await the results, which came in the early hours of the morning after an overnight debate. Supporters of the bill greeted the news with loud...
  • Pope Francis Tells Catholics to Receive Vaccines Made From the Tissue of Dead, Mutilated, Aborted Fetuses

    Pope Francis is urging Catholics worldwide to receive COVID-19 vaccines, even if the vaccines have derived from mutilated fetuses tortured and murdered during the mortal sin of abortion. The Vatican made the announcement to Catholics on Monday that God is okay with these shots made from the parts of babies ripped to shreds. They use an argument pertaining to the “differing degrees of responsibility of cooperation in evil” to justify their position. They claim the vaccine is permissible because “they can be used in good conscience with the certain knowledge that (it) does not constitute formal cooperation with the abortion...
  • BREAKING: Vatican Source Says Pope Francis To Step Down

    12/22/2020 12:09:34 PM PST · by A.M. Smith · 220 replies
    A source close to the Vatican has reported that Pope Francis will be stepping down from the Papacy before the end of the year. There is “no doubt” the Pontiff “will resign in 2020”, the source confirmed. Pope Francis became head of the Catholic Church following the unexpected resignation of Pope Benedict XVI in 2013 and has been unpopular among U.S. Catholics for his radical stances on same-sex marriage, illegal immigration, and global warming as well as his support for Black Lives Matter.

    The king of Vatican City, Jorge Bergoglio, has announced that he will receive the Pfizer COVID-19 coronavirus vaccine in early January, and that it is his desire this vaccine become universal, and given to everyone in the whole world.

  • Pope Francis: Let Us Dream of a New World Order

    12/18/2020 4:11:48 PM PST · by JMJT · 51 replies
    By David Martin Pope Francis recently published a new book titled, Let us Dream: A Path to a Better Future, which is being touted “an inspiring and actionable blueprint for building a better world for all humanity” (Simon & Schuster). What is strange is that the book is void of the instructions for a better world given to us by Christ. There is nothing about doing penance (Mt 3:2) and obeying rules and commandments (John 14:15). In his book, Francis talks about "creating something new", "our new principle", and "reimagining a new world." This immediately calls to mind the lyrics...

    Pope Francis will step down before the end of the year, according to a source close to the Vatican, who said there was "no doubt" the Pontiff "will resign in 2020". The 84-year-old became head of the Catholic Church following the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI – a controversial move and the first of its kind in more than 500 years. However, a source close to Pope Francis claimed he would only serve for seven years, stating he would follow in the footsteps of his predecessor. Austen Ivereigh is the former Director for Public Affairs of the previous Archbishop of...

    Officials rejected the registration certificates saying the government can revoke them anytime Government officials in eastern China have raided and shut down close to 100 protestant churches as part of the escalating crackdown on Christians in the communist nation. Officials in four cities of Anhui province have closed down 99 churches and prayer venues this year, exploiting a range of pretexts including poverty eradication and prevention of Covid-19 epidemic, reported Bitter Winter, a magazine that covers human rights and liberty in China. At least 43 churches were closed in Suzhou, while 24 in Huaibei, 20 in Fuyang, and 16 in...

    Remember that '80s song "I Need a Hero"? This whole year has me singing the chorus quite a bit. That's why Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are Time magazine's "Person of the Year." Meanwhile, the fact of the matter is the kind of salvation people are looking for does not come from politics, no matter how much we may want it to. I've often thought of Pope Francis' prayer service early on in the pandemic. You couldn't have scripted it better; it occurred on a rainy night in Rome, with the sounds of ambulances and other emergency vehicles constantly in...

    Francis’ New Book: Praises George Floyd Riots, Condemns COVID ProtestsIs there a single issue on which Francis comes down on the Catholic side anymore? If you want to be a conservative, a patriot, a traditionalist, a regular guy—just do the exact opposite of what this little, diminutive man does. (Yes, despite what you may have seen from the Vatican glamor shot photographer, Francis is actually just over 5’7”, which explains a lot.)So, when it came to handling COVID, what did the great big man do? Closed down the churches and immediately started talking about the desperate need for a new...

    ROME — The Vatican suggested Thursday a Biden presidency might inject new life into the stagnant Paris Climate Accord after President Trump pulled the U.S. out of the deal in 2017. The Vatican COVID-19 Commission announced Thursday that it is organizing a webinar next week in preparation for a December 12 global climate summit to be co-hosted by the United Nations and the UK to mark the fifth anniversary of the Paris Agreement. In its preparatory document, the Vatican team lamented the lack of initiative and commitment around the Paris climate goals, something it said needs to gain renewed momentum...

    Argentina -- the home country of Pope Francis -- is currently in a fight over abortion. The pope has even weighed in -- talking, among other things, about making it clear that abortion isn't a religious issue. It's a fact issue. A matter of science. When a woman is pregnant, there is a child developing inside her. It's not a leap of faith to say it; we see it on sonograms. She is a mother and will always be, whatever happens to that child. That's why women mourn when they suffer miscarriages. This is a real, grueling, heartbreaking loss. To...

    Since becoming the head of the Catholic Church in 2013, Pope Francis has not shied away from the political domain. On Sunday, the religious leader used the COVID-19 pandemic to renew his criticisms of free-market capitalism. In a video message he sent to the International Conference of judges members of the Committee for Social Rights in Africa and America, Pope Francis said that the right to private property is “a secondary natural right derived from that which everyone has”, which in turn arises from the “universal destiny of created goods” and affirmed that “the Christian tradition never recognized as absolute...

    ... With some exceptions, governments have made great efforts to put the well-being of their people first, acting decisively to protect health and to save lives. The exceptions have been some governments that shrugged off the painful evidence of mounting deaths, with inevitable, grievous consequences. But most governments acted responsibly, imposing strict measures to contain the outbreak. Yet some groups protested, refusing to keep their distance, marching against travel restrictions — as if measures that governments must impose for the good of their people constitute some kind of political assault on autonomy or personal freedom! Looking to the common good...
  • How Much Did The Vatican Let Disgraced Former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick Sway Its Agreement With Communist China?

    The Federalist ^ | 11/20/2020 | Carina Benton
    While the United States was reeling last week from an utterly chaotic election, the Vatican decided it was the right moment to publish its long-awaited report into disgraced former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick. The mammoth document is a nauseating account of clerical coverup, cowardice, and complicity that prioritizes subtle finger-pointing and deflection over real accountability. Those expecting an explanation of how a serially accused predator was catapulted through the church hierarchy despite serious allegations and rumors of assault and indecent behavior will be left not merely disappointed but disillusioned.Equally unsatisfactory is its failure to disclose the extent to which this highly...

    Oh, you devil! A bikini model has claimed that Pope Francis’ Instagram account liked a racy photo of her dressed in stockings and suspenders. Natalia Garibotto, 27, said the pontiff’s verified Franciscus account was among the 133,000 that “liked” an image of her standing at a school locker with a white crop-top and a skirt barely reaching her behind. “My mum may hate my ass pics but the Pope be double-tapping,” the Brazilian joked with Barstool Sports, which also claimed to have seen the apparent papal seal of approval before it was removed.

    The Biden-Harris Transition team announced Thursday that Mr. Biden had spoken by telephone with Pope Francis, who offered him “blessings and congratulations.” The press release does not specify who initiated the call, but only that “President-elect Joe Biden spoke this morning with His Holiness Pope Francis.” Since, however, the pope as a rule does not call to congratulate people for political victories, it must be assumed that the Biden team made the call.

    Perhaps unsurprisingly, Pope Francis prematurely congratulated Joe Biden in a Thursday morning phone call, according to a statement released by the Biden-Harris campaign. In turn, Biden heaped praise on the pope and expressed his desire to work with him on a host of issues for the benefit of “mankind.” The statement said: “… Joe Biden spoke this morning with His Holiness Pope Francis. [Biden] thanked His Holiness for extending blessings and congratulations and noted his appreciation for His Holiness’ leadership in promoting peace, reconciliation, and the common bonds of humanity around the world.“[Biden] expressed his desire to work together on...
