    The Pope called for more gun control in the United States after the horrific mass shooting at an elementary school in Texas, and a Cardinal in Chicago agreed. Pope Francis spoke about the shooting from St. Peter's Square at the Vatican during his weekly general audience. "I am praying for the children and adults who were killed, and for their families. It is time to say enough to the indiscriminate trafficking of arms," Francis said Wednesday. "Let us all make a commitment, so that tragedies like this cannot happen again," he added. Cardinal Blase J. Cupich, the archbishop of Chicago,...

    Cdl. Parolin bars Cdl. Burke as Italy lifts draconian Green Pass restrictions VATICAN CITY (ChurchMilitant.com) - Pope Francis' second-in-command, Cdl. Pietro Parolin, personally intervened to bar Cdl. Raymond Burke from entering Vatican offices over Burke's conscientious objection to the abortion-tainted COVID-19 vaccine. Sources at the Congregation for the Causes of the Saints told Church Militant that Burke, a member of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura, was recently stopped at the entrance to the building because he did not possess a Green Pass. The Green Pass, issued by Italy and the Vatican, shows that the holder has been...

    There are several people alive that can personally attest to being eyewitnesses of the Vatican possessing Temple vessels, including the Menorah candelabra.ransomnote: at the link, a beautiful photo in the article.Pretend for a moment that the Vatican has in its possession some sacred and precious relics that were originally in the Herodian Jewish Temple located in Jerusalem 1,950 years ago.If you were the pope living in the 14th century and could verify this fact, would you not ask yourself how indeed such Jewish artifacts had come to your residence in the first place?After some digging around (no pun intended), you...

    Letter from Rome: The old order is passing awayThe Church's implosion accelerates as cardinals call for major doctrinal changes and a former pope tries to save a legacy. There was more turbulence in Roman Catholicism this past week -- at least on the Old Continent.A number of recent events verified -- to those who are willing to open their eyes and face reality -- that the Roman Church's ongoing implosion is picking up pace.Here are just a few things that happened when many people were probably not paying attention:- Two cardinals close to Pope Francis publicly called for radical changes...

    Peter’s Pence posts dwindling donations for 6th yearThe fund from the faithful, which finances many Vatican charity efforts, is running at a large deficit. Donations from the faithful to Peter’s Pence decreased by as much as 15% in 2021. The fund, which the Vatican relies on to support many of its charitable efforts, has continued on a downward trend that began in 2015.Fr. Juan A. Guerrero, S.J., prefect of the Secretariat for the Economy, discussed the situation in a January 28 interview with Vatican News. The Jesuit revealed a serious decrease in donations from about $49 million in 2020 to...

    Pro-vax Catholic media being paid by Soros and GatesThe consortium of Catholic media, catholic-factchecking.com, led by Aleteia and linked to the Holy See, is a project to silence non-aligned Catholic journalists. It is financed by large international anti-life and anti-family lobbies, in cahoots with the big pharmaceutical companies that produce vaccines. This explains a lot....A well-documented investigation by the American website Church Militant reveals how Google, Soros, and Bill Gates finance the Catholic pro-vax media to oppose those in the Church who are not aligned with the pro-vax message. And it turns out that leading the consortium of Catholic media...

    Cardinal George Pell will be immediately freed from prison after Australia's High Court unanimously overturned his conviction on five counts of historical child sex abuse. The momentous decision, handed down Tuesday by Chief Justice Susan Kiefel, ends a five-year legal battle that started when a man in his 30s approached police alleging Pell had abused him as a child in the mid-1990s. At the time, Pell was Vatican Treasurer and the highest ranking Catholic official to ever be publicly accused of child sex offenses. Pell strenuously denied the charges, which he dismissed in a 2016 police interview as a "product...

    The former prefect of the Vatican’s Secretariat for the Economy sat down for an interview on his three-volume 'Prison Journal' touching on his incarceration, Cardinal Becciu and Vatican finances. When Cardinal George Pell took a leave of absence in 2018 from his post as the inaugural prefect of the Secretariat for the Economy and returned to Australia to stand trial for his “historic sexual abuse” case, he was the highest ranking Church official to be swept up in a decades-long global scandal that has shattered victims and wreaked havoc on the Church’s moral credibility. Convicted in 2018, he would spend...

    Pope Francis appeared to take a shot at Hungary on Wednesday, insisting “no country can exempt itself” from the obligation to take in migrants. On Tuesday, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán rejected a ruling by the European Union’s (EU) Court of Justice that his government had “failed to fulfil its obligations” to relax its immigration laws. “We will maintain the existing regime, even if the European court ordered us to change it,” Orbán said Tuesday in his end-of-year news conference. “The reality is that we have to stop the migrants at the borders,” he declared. “This can be solved by...

    BBC News ^ | December 5, 2021
    The Pope has denounced "narrow self-interest and nationalism" over the way Europe treats migrants. Speaking on the Greek island of Lesbos, where he met dozens of migrants, Pope Francis said they were being used for political propaganda. He urged focus on the causes of migration, such as "forgotten wars", instead of punishing those who feel their effects. And he criticised the building of walls to keep people out. "In Europe there are those who persist in treating the problem as a matter that does not concern them - this is tragic," he said. "History teaches us that narrow self-interest and...

    NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) — Pope Francis on Friday denounced the “culture of indifference” that the West shows migrants as the Vatican confirmed that at least a dozen asylum-seekers would be transferred from Cyprus to Italy in a gesture of solidarity with European countries that have received a disproportionate share of would-be refugees. The transfer, formally announced on the second day of Francis’ visit to Cyprus, came on the eve of his scheduled arrival in Greece, from where he brought a dozen Syrian Muslim refugees home with him aboard the papal plane in 2016. The Vatican said the Rome-based Sant’Egidio Community,...

    The Lepanto Institute released a new video report, exposing the celebration and promotion of militant communists in a Vatican event initiated by Pope Francis. The report focuses on the organizations and speakers that were celebrated in a video produced by the Vatican for the fourth annual World Meeting of Popular Movements (WMPM). According to the WMPM website, the purpose of the meeting "is to create an 'encounter' between Church leadership and grassroots organizations working to address the 'economy of exclusion and inequality' by working for structural changes that promote social, economic and racial justice." But many of the organizations participating...
  • Holy Crap! Biden Reportedly Poops His Pants While Meeting With Pope

    On Friday, Joe Biden met with Pope Francis at the Vatican. Mysteriously, the TV feed was abruptly cut off by officials, and video of Biden speaking with the Pope never made it to viewers. I did happen to see Jack Posobiec’s tweet about the incident on Friday, but I had since long forgotten about it. Later on Saturday evening, news began to break that Biden had reportedly lost control of his bowels and was rushed to the bathroom by his staff. The story has been corroborated by multiple sources, and there appears to be mounting evidence that the 78-year-old demented...

    Joe Biden met Pope Francis on Friday, October 29, in the US President's official visit to the Vatican since his inauguration. Biden is the second Catholic president in US history and is in Rome to attend the G20 summit which took place on October 30-31. Biden arrived at the Vatican’s San Damaso Courtyard at 12 pm on October 29. Msgr Leonardo Sapienza, the regent of the papal household, as well as Gentlemen of His Holiness, welcomed Joe Biden and his wife, First Lady Jill Biden. Shaking hands with the lay dignitaries, Biden said, “Thank you, it’s good to be back....

    President Biden on Friday cruised through Rome with an 85-vehicle motorcade — drawing criticism for the poor optics ahead of a global warming summit in Glasgow, Scotland, to which Biden is bringing about a dozen top US officials. “Biden arriving at the Vatican. His motorcade is lonnnnnng,” tweeted Washington Post reporter Chico Harlan, along with a video of the procession. “#Decarbonize this,” one person captioned the video. “America’s Marie Antoinette class is Washington’s elites – and that shows it,” another person responded. Biden routinely says there’s a “climate crisis” caused by fossil fuels. It’s unclear how many of the motorcade...

    On Friday, President Biden will meet with Pope Francis. Back in the USA, many of us are hoping that Pope Francis uses this face-to-face meeting with a Catholic President to make a point about abortion. How much longer can the church continue to offer communion to a man who has become the best friend of abortion since Roe v Wade? Unlike some other Democrats, who say that abortion should be safe and rare, President Biden's pen has made abortion more possible. This is from a recent NPR story: The Biden administration reversed a ban on abortion referrals by family planning...
