    Pope Francis again laments ‘clericalism’ of ‘rigid seminarians’‘Rigidity is somewhat fashionable today; and rigidity is one of the manifestations of clericalism,’ the Pope said.VATICAN CITY, June 16, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — During a June 10 address to a group of Italian seminarians, Pope Francis urged the future priests to avoid the “perversion” of clericalism, advising that such a misuse of priestly authority leads to a kind of “rigidity,” a term the Pope has often used to malign traditionally-minded clerics and lay faithful alike.In speaking to the members of the Pontifical Regional Seminary Pius XI of the Marche, Pope Francis first addressed...

    Gratitude where gratitude is due: My family’s story with the Society of St. Pius XSo many souls today are not being tended well by their shepherds. So many sheep out there are lost in the wilderness and no one is present to look for them.Father Steven Reuter on Holy Thursday 2020 June 9, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Sometimes things happen in life that we receive with much gratitude, but we may never make it a point of stressing them. And then comes an occasion which prompts us to do some act of gratitude that was long overdue.This is how it is...

    Our schools claim to teach sophisticated topics such as critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, the meaning of math, social emotional learning, and dozens of other buzzwords. Truth is, the schools hardly bother to teach even basic skills and foundational knowledge. Simultaneously, children are indulged and excused, which encourage the least desirable personal traits. All of which explains the answers left by teachers (on an internet forum, Quora) when asked this question: what are the most appalling things about students nowadays? “One of the big things that disappeared over the years from teenagers is common sense. Teens would do something really stupid,...

    [Catholic Caucus] Pope criticizes young traditional priests’ clothes: Cassock suggests ‘moral problems’ VATICAN CITY, September 27, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) ― During a visit with African Jesuits in Mozambique, Pope Francis once again accused young priests in traditional dress of harboring “moral problems” and “imbalances.” While answering a question from Fr. Lucas Joaquim Biriate, S.J., the socius of (chief assistant to) the Jesuit provincial in Mozambique and Zimbabwe, the Argentinian pontiff condemned “clericalism” in no uncertain terms. Biriate had asked how priests could “avoid falling into clericalism during formation for priestly ministry.” “Clericalism is a real perversion in the Church,” Francis...

    With nearly all the annual conferences in the U.S. having voted, it appears that a sufficient number of traditional-minded delegates have been elected to assure a narrow but clear traditionalist majority at the 2020 General Conference in Minneapolis. These delegates will be able to prevent the overturning of parts of the Traditional Plan that were enacted in St. Louis, will seek to enact revised versions of the parts of the Traditional Plan that were not enacted or ruled unconstitutional, and will press forward with other reforms to position The United Methodist Church as a more vital church capable of fruitful...

    [Catholic Caucus] Vatican all but wipes out conservative order of nuns for ‘too much prayer’ June 7, 2019 (LifeSiteNews.com) — All but five of the 39 Little Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Redeemer, a conservative French religious order, have been relieved of their vows by the Vatican after refusing to submit to a group of Vatican-appointed commissioners led by a habitless liberal nun who wanted to impose “modern orientations” on the group, in the sister’s words. The 34 nuns, who dress in traditional habits and care for the disabled and elderly in four different nursing homes, have been...
