    St. Patrick's Cathedral "only knew that family and friends were requesting a funeral Mass for a Catholic, and had no idea our welcome and prayer would be degraded in such a sacrilegious and deceptive way." The Archdiocese of New York which operates the St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City said that it shares the "outrage over the scandalous behavior at a funeral" earlier in the week for a trans activist and offered "an appropriate Mass of Reparation" to reconsecrate the cathedral. The funeral proceedings celebrated blasphemy, whoredom, and had prayers for access to sex changes. According to the statement,...

    [Catholic Caucus] Scenes From Trans Activist Cecilia Gentili’s Funeral as Mourners Fill St. Patrick’s CathredalThe pews of St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City are a sea of black and ruby red that glimmers when the light hits just right. The shine stems from the various gems adorning attendees—on their slicked back, curly shags and mullets, delicate lacy veils, button down shirts, crocheted crop tops, and even decorated in the shape of a heart on the side of their cheeks—who arrive with red carnations and roses to commemorate transgender activist Cecilia Gentili. ....

Introduction: Adoration Now honour is the attitude which a subject manifests to another in virtue of the other’s superior excellence, in order to express his submission to that other; whereas adoration is that honour which a subject manifests to God in virtue of God’s superior, or more precisely, infinite excellence, which requires of the subject total submission to Him. The obligation to adore...

    A Muslim Sheikh’s Unfortunate First CommunionAn Archbishop defended giving a Muslim sheikh Holy Communion, contrary to the longstanding teaching and praxis of the Church.The Sunday Times of London carried a column the other day by a certain Rod Liddle. Its title was an attention-grabber: “Great, we banished Christianity. Now we’re stuck in a moral wilderness.” Mr. Liddle was lamenting the state of the state church. A poll of the Anglican priests presently serving showed that three-quarters of said clergy believe that the United Kingdom “cannot be called a Christian country.” The columnist’s rather acerbic point of view was reflected in...

    Communion for Muslim: Who Appointed This Archbishop?During a August 28 Eucharist in Londrina Cathedral, Brazil, the local archbishop, Geremias Steinmetz, 58, Brazil, handed Communion to Sheikh Ahmad Saleh Mahairi, founder of Londrina's Rei Faiçal mosque.Media reported that Mahairi didn’t consume the host. In an August 30 note, Steinmetz justified (sic!) his action by absurdly referring to quotes from Francis that the Last Supper was undeserved.A first communicant knows that an unbaptised person cannot be admitted to other sacraments. It is inexplicable how Benedict XVI could make Steinmetz a bishop in 2011, who has no clue about the faith he is...

With Jorge Bergoglio (stage name, Francis) starring as both host and headliner, who could have expected anything less? After all, this is the Pachamama Pontiff, the same man-in-white who for years has obstinately refused to genuflect before the Blessed Sacrament [alleged] on the Novus Ordo table, but who eagerly drops to his knees whenever a timely photo-op presents itself. The list of offenses that took place at World Youth...
