  • [Catholic Caucus] The Church Is Not Ruled by a Plebiscite

    [Catholic Caucus] The Church Is Not Ruled by a PlebisciteSin does not grow sweet by majority practice; truth is not altered by a vote. The Church is not a political party.A few weeks ago, I saw in an article in The New York Times the phrase “Pope Francis’s agenda for the Church.” The author approved of that agenda and was no doubt oblivious to the fact that, unless we are talking about governance, reform of abuses, and missionary work, an agenda for the Church is the last thing a pope should have. That is because the Church is not a...

    [Catholic Caucus] The Poisonous Fruit of Amoris LaetitiaFiducia Supplicans directly flows from principles and premises articulated in the apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia.In his magisterial history The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Edward Gibbon identified the loss of civic virtue as the “secret poison” that undermined this sprawling global empire and inevitably led to its demise. The Catholic Church is not about to disintegrate in the same fashion as the Roman Empire, but its unity, grounded in the infallible papal magisterium, seems to be unraveling, and its eternal doctrines are no longer safe from radical revision. We can probably...

    The rulers of this world who are insufficiently instructed by Christians and the word of God will remain largely unchecked in their drift toward lawlessness, violence, and war. This is because unbelieving men and nations are at war with Jesus Christ. It follows that the violence of war is the demonstration—not the cause—of the awful capacity of the sinful heart of man.[3] God says this about lost sinners: “Their feet are swift to shed blood; destruction and misery are in their ways; and the way of peace they have not known. There is no fear of God before their eyes”...

    We now come to look at the apostle’s final statement about man in sin; and that is, that he is under the wrath of God. In other words Paul deals with sin, as sin affects man’s standing before God. He shows what God says and thinks and does about man in that condition which we have already considered: There can be no question at all but that this is the most important aspect of the subject. The others were vitally important, but there is nothing which is as important as this. It is because we so constantly forget this that...

    [Catholic Caucus] Rigged Synod Experts Will Proclaim “the Will of God”So it’s October 17th, and we are more than half way through this month of the #SchismaticWay, and what do we have so far? A particular generation of theologians have more or less declared this synod to be the dream of Cardinal Martini, where they can finally find that reform they always wanted: As such, the synod has become a circus of what this pontificate has alreadty brought forth: all the cheerleaders for the St. Gallen Mafia have lifted their heads above water and shouted their filth to the world....

    Neither the Gates of Hell nor the Synodal Church Will Prevail Against the Catholic ChurchAt this point in Francis’s Synod on Synodality, most rational Catholics who have paid attention have seen enough to know that it is a deliberate attack from hell on the Catholic Church. In hindsight, this ought to have been clear from Francis’s opening address of the Synod over two years ago, when he announced his intention to create a different church:“Father Congar, of blessed memory, once said: ‘There is no need to create another Church, but to create a different Church’ (True and False Reform in...

    A Synodal Swampy MessWhile addressing a South American youth gathering in 2015, Pope Francis defined his pontificate when he told them to go out and “make a mess.” And a mess is what he has emanating from the Vatican.Enter the Synod on Synodality where barrels of ink have been spilled leading up to its initiation that is now underway in the Eternal City. And if the recycle dumpster is to be believed, much that has been written on the synod has been deposited unopened. Many baptized Catholics have no idea what a synod is or even care.The growing progressive wing...

    Synodal silence: Pope says church must pause, ‘fast’ from public words“The church is taking a break,” Pope Francis said.“It is a break for the whole church, as we engage in listening,” he told members of the assembly of the Synod of Bishops — and journalists.Addressing the opening working session of the assembly, the pope may have exaggerated a bit, yet for participants his words certainly rang true. For the duration of the assembly Oct. 4-29 all the heads of Vatican dicasteries and hundreds of cardinals, archbishops, bishops, religious superiors, professors, students and parents were scheduled to be away from their...

Murray declared.A prominent canon lawyer has argued that the Vatican’s Synod on Synodality is a “long-awaited opportunity” to “bury” a Christo-centric Catholicism and implement a form of “judgment-free human coexistence.”“The Synodal Assembly has the potential to cause immense harm to the life and mission of the Church,” stated Father...

    [Catholic Caucus] Cardinals Send ‘Dubia’ to Pope Francis Ahead of Synod on SynodalityFive cardinals have sent a set of questions to Pope Francis to express their concerns and seek clarification on points of doctrine and discipline ahead of this week’s opening of the Synod on Synodality at the Vatican. The cardinals said they submitted five questions, called “dubia,” on Aug. 21 requesting clarity on topics relating to doctrinal development, the blessing of same-sex unions, the authority of the Synod on Synodality, women’s ordination, and sacramental absolution. Dubia are formal questions brought before the pope and the Dicastery for the Doctrine...

Peter Miller, OSBWhitestone MonasteryToday, the spiritual feast of Holy Mother Church honors St. Michael the Archangel, one of the four principal angels according to Holy Scripture and Christian tradition. Michael’s name appears four times in Sacred Scripture: Daniel 10:13; Daniel 12:1; in the Epistle of Jude; Revelation 12:7. In the Book of Daniel, Michael appears as an apocalyptic warrior who defends the Israelites against the Prince of Persia. The Book of Revelation...

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) signed into law an 11 percent tax on guns and ammunition Tuesday, describing the gun control measure as a “sin tax.” On August 23, 2023, Breitbart News reported that California Assemblyman Jesse Gabriel (D) was pushing legislation to create the 11 percent excise tax on firearm and ammunition sales in the state. He touted the bill as means to bring nearly $160 million in annual revenue for the state government. Former Assemblyman Marc Levine (D) voiced support for Gabriel’s excise tax because California is “facing a $31.5 billion budget gap,” the Sacramento Bee noted.

    [Catholic Caucus] Francis, Fatima, and GarabandalPope Francis says don’t worry about sin. Our Lady says otherwise.Catholics are confused and divided over Pope Francis. For years he has been introducing novel changes into the Church that seem to conflict not only with traditional practices but also with established Church teaching. An increasing number of Catholics have come to the conclusion that Francis (along with others in the hierarchy) is in the process of creating an alternate Church—one which is meant to eventually replace the true Church. Defenders of Francis say that he is only trying to reform the Church—to renovate an...

    In a world where the truth is often tainted and an occasional white lie may seem more ethical than telling a brutally honest truth, many believers may wonder if exceptions exist to the Ten Commandments' prohibition on lying — or bearings a false witness.Throughout Scripture, many biblical figures have found themselves neck-deep in lies. Some were apparent lies, while others were more subtly withholding the truth. Adam and Eve sinned and tried to hide from God by temporarily withholding the truth. The couple did not immediately admit their faults before God — which occurs in Genesis 3.In 1 Samuel, David...

    [Catholic Caucus] Sexual Revolution in the Church. Everyone Inside, but at the Price of Excluding GodThe symbolic image of the synod on synodality, convened in plenary session this October, is a tent that is enlarged. To finally “welcome and accompany” even those who “do not feel accepted in the Church.”And who are the first on the list of these excluded, in the “Instrumentum laboris,” the document that acts as a guide for the synod? “The divorced and remarried, people in polygamous marriages, or LGBTQ+ Catholics.”For years now in the Church these human typologies have been at the center of discussion....
