Scarcity Sales Ploy... gone wrong?

Nothing new here - Home Shopping and Ronco industries have been doing this for years ("Call right away - supplies are limited!)

Who writes the Tweets for the US bishops?

Don't Pelosi and her "boss" (or is it the other way around?) like ice cream too? Maybe that could be some "common ground" for their bishops to dialogue with them over 😬

Sex and Money: Catholic Community Project Ruined Before It Started

More grifters! Well I guess we'll never see that "Benedict Option" of Christendom built anytime soon!

Brazilian priest João Paulo Araujo Gomes, of the Diocese of Caruaru, takes abandoned dogs out of …

I guess one can now really say "our church has gone to the dogs!" 🤪 😇

Gloria.tv Leak Dominates Weekend Discussion

"the young Roche when in 1972 he lost in the semi-finals as a figure skater" - all you need to know about this character! 😉

Theocracy: A Christian Group Opposes America’s Decadence

This "Benedict Option" (the saint, not the Pope 😉) approach has been tried by some Catholics - for example: Ave Maria town in Florida - but without much success. There's plans to do something similar in Texas.

Cardinal Fears for His Life

I'm in contact with a priest in this nation who fled there after the troubles in South Africa. He is now seeking to immigrate to the U.S. The whole world is messed up!

Legalistic Cardinal: Francis Wants To Cancel Roman Mass

The byzantines did their own "improved" translation a few years back. It resulted in many faithful departing to the (o)rthodox churches. They got Patriarch Bart on Francis' team - so...?

There it is again: "move forward" - progressivism!!!

Mad-House Church: Archbishop Suggests Turning Corpses Into Liquid To Save Mother Earth

And right before All Souls' Day! Talk about (as they say in the media) BAD OPTICS!!! To bury the dead is a corporal work of mercy. Only atheists view the body as "cells" to be disposed of or used for profit (abortion). Lord have mercy!!

General Audience: Remorseful Francis Admits His Faults

Quote: "The path forward is scary..." Forward, ever forward! Man, how I hate that phrase! It seems to pop up in every meeting I attend. Tradition cannot coexist with the modern idea of progress. Salvation history is a RETURN to the Father God that was lost by sin in Eden!

Refugee Idolatry: Cardinal Howls About Refugees, Hushes Up Backgrounds

Ditto for even parish priests. In our church we have to endure praying for refugees & migrants EVERY DAY. Yesterday, the priest introduced a new term - he called them "pilgrims". Guess like pumpkin-spiced everything, Thanksgiving is coming up so lay on the autumnal tropes!

Saint Peter’s Has a New Parish Priest

Your last point is making a 'come-back' with the woke among us - except for a different reason: you see, bathing regularly wastes water and hurts the environment! I've seen videos on YT extolling the 'unwashed masses' look. Even my nurse practitioner gave me the bizarre recommendation "It's not necessary to wash everyday." No thank you!

Saint Peter’s Square: Decadence Is Sprouting

“The slaves of the householder came to him and said, ‘Master, did you not sow good seed in your field? Where have the weeds come from?’ He answered, ‘An enemy has done this” Matthew 13:27-28

Number of new seminarians falls by 20% in Poland

Quote: "In 2012, it said, 828 candidates enrolled in the first year of seminary. There were 498 in 2019 and 441 in 2020." Hey at least they have over 100 times more than Ireland who only had 4 new seminarians!

Cardinal Müller Blesses Rubbish Our Lady Rescued by Muslim

Francis’ Abu Dhabi Fraud

This "church" - if that's what you want to call it - reflects the modernist 'faith' from where it has it's origin. Abstract in design, devoid of any iconography or images of Our Lord or the holy saints, it makes "christianity" a mere set of concepts detached from historical reality. Ironic coming from a 'pope' who decries traditionalists of making our Faith into an ideology!
