    Bishop Joseph Strickland, who was recently removed by the Vatican from his position in the Diocese of Tyler, Texas, urged Catholics in an appearance on Newsmax to resist the Pope’s changes to the church’s ancient teachings while remaining faithful to the “bride of Christ.” "Please, please don't abandon the bride of Christ, that is the Catholic Church,” Strickland said Tuesday on Newsmax's "The Chris Salcedo Show." “ He added: “Stay with her, grow more holy, grow closer to the sacred heart of Christ. But please, please don't abandon her to the foul sinfulness that is overtaking the world and, sadly,...
  • Ladaria Will Not Attend Synod- Was He the 'Katechon' Holding Back the Rupnik Rehabilitation?

    Today, it was announced that Cardinal Luis Ladaria Ferrer, former prefect of the Dicastery of the Doctrine of the Faith (DDF), will not be taking part in the Synod on Synodality 'at his own request.' No other reason was given. The peculiar timing, and absence of any explanation (other than that it was Ladaria's own request), are notable. Ladaria's last day as DDF prefect was September 8. He was replaced on September 11 with Francis loyalist Tucho Fernandez, who has been instructed by Francis to stay away from sex abuse investigations (despite it being a chief duty of his office)....

    With the most recent General Assembly, the negotiations and democratic votes of the so-called "Synodal Path" came to an end. The decisions made with a majority are now to be implemented. However, the resolutions do not meet with the undivided approval of Rome and the Pope, both of whom represent the universal Church and thus 1,300 million Roman Catholics and who are both responsible for guaranteeing the unity of the two-thousand-year-old Church in the truth of Christ, yes, the resolutions were not only by German Catholics, but also criticised worldwide.

    Michel Santier's "strip-confessions", too much for the Church? The former bishop of Créteil has admitted to having asked young men in the 1990s to strip for every sin they confessed to. If he was sanctioned in 2021, believers are now outraged by the silence that surrounded this decision. Last October, the Trombinoscope des évêques, co-authored by the author of these lines, was published, revealing the particular confessions of Michel Santier, Bishop Emeritus of Créteil (2007-2021), in the 1990s. In mid-October, the weekly Christian Family revealed the canonical sanctions taken against this clergyman in October 2021, in the greatest secrecy, causing...

    At the last Synodal Assembly it was suggested that in Australia and Flanders same-sex couples and divorced remarried couples were already being blessed - with the Pope's blessing, so to speak, at least, according to Flemish Bishop Johan Bonny, the Pope had not opposed anything. An analysis of the "New Beginning" shows that this is not the case.

    They have their final meeting coming soon, so it will be soon be revealed their final view on the priesthood. I fear the worst. From 2021 The controversial "Synodal Path" now addresses the question of whether the Catholic Church needs priests at all. This was decided by the Synodal Assembly by vote yesterday (Thursday). It was also suggested to discuss an LGBT sacrament.

He represents the Priests' Council of the Archdiocese of Cologne in the General Assembly of the Synodal Path and is a member of Forum 1 "Power and Separation of Powers". "Reforms and changes are needed in the Catholic Church. However, I cannot support the lack of openness with which many debates are conducted in the Synodal Path and numerous reform proposals that too lightly abandon unity with the universal Church," he said in a statement

    You have just finished the "European leg" in Prague. There are different opinions between East and West, North and South. How did you experience these tensions? Jean-Claude Cardinal Hollerich (General Relator of the World Synod and Archbishop of Luxembourg): Tensions are normal in the Church. One should not be surprised by tensions. There are also tensions within each individual Church, not to mention the German Church. So tensions are normal. But we were also able to experience the communion, the community of the Church. We appreciated each other and listened to each other. That is also very important. We do...

Curia Cardinal Mario Grech (65) is "Mister Synod": The threads of the synodal process run together in his office. A conversation about his experiences in Prague, Cardinal Müller's criticism - and what he says to disappointed Catholics of Synod 72. Eminence, what is the most important message coming out of Prague? Cardinal Mario Grech: We learned that we have different backgrounds and different positions. But we managed to walk together and work together. That has proved to be very productive.

    Benedict's death has certainly accelerated the aggressiveness Vatican expert Politi: attacks on Francis will increase Just after the death of Benedict XVI, more and more conservative bishops voiced their criticism of Pope Francis. Just coincidence - or is there more to it? In the katholisch.de interview, Italian Vatican expert Marco Politi gives his assessment. Since the death of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, voices from the College of Bishops have been piling up criticising Pope Francis. Archbishop Georg Gänswein's memoirs, in which he reports on his time with Benedict XVI, contain passages that at least indirectly criticise decisions made by the...

    [Catholic Caucus] Francis Plops Another Synod Stinker Upon The Church As many of you know, the pope and cabal initiated a "Synod on Synodality". That is no joke. They are literally talking about talking. Not only that, but they've decided to extend the gabfest for who knows how long. We know from past synods what the real deal is. The New World Order wonks - and that includes Francis - have an agenda that will be realized through this. They are merely putting on this charade to give the appearance that they really care about input from real Catholics....

    The Vatican has released a new working document for the Synod on Synodality, summarizing the results of national consultations and preparing for the “continental stage” of the continuing Synod process. In a 44-page document, entitled “Enlarge the space of your tent,” the document calls for “a Church capable of radical inclusion,” and stresses the need to reach out to those who feel alienated from, or marginalized by, the Church. In particular, the text calls for greater efforts to include women in decision-making roles, and to reach out to homosexuals, divorced and remarried couples, single parents, young people, and victims of...

    What is truth? How can it be found and how does freedom relate to truth? Is there one truth and several? These questions are essential for human beings, because man's deepest longing is directed towards the knowledge of truth, explains Cardinal Kurt Cardinal Koch, here in conversation with the Tagespost. Eminence, dear Cardinal, this symposium of the Ratzinger Circle is above all about truth. This has always been a special concern of the theologian, Joseph Ratzinger and of Pope Benedict. His whole theology seems to be like a red thread the search for the real truth, and his work was...

    Cardinal Mario Grech is not happy with the way the Synodal Path of the Church is criticised in Germany. Fraternal corrections are something positive, he says - but not in the form the Polish bishops have chosen. The Cardinal caught wearing "grandma's lace" The Secretary General of the Synod of Bishops, Cardinal Mario Grech, sees the open letters on the Synodal Path as a "public denunciation". In an interview with "Herder Thema" he stressed that fraternal correction and dialogue are something positive. However, he did not agree with the method used by the critics.
