Cardinal Raymond Burke has launched an initiative inviting the faithful to return to prayer. Burke cites the example of the apparition of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico, which led to the conversion of over 9 million Aztecs.
The initiative consists of a nine-month novena to Our Lady, beginning on 12 March. The "immense spiritual undertaking" will culminate in a Marian consecration on her feast day, 12 December.
"Our Lady has not forgotten her children: her care for us is as strong today as it was 500 years ago. Please join me in this return to the Mother of God."

"Old Catholic Church": Cardinal Schönborn Apologises

Cardinal Christoph Schönborn of Vienna, Austria, apologised on 26 February to a schismatic group called "Old Catholics".
The reason: On 19 February he told the magazine Communio that he did not wish the "Catholic" Church in Germany "the fate of the Old Catholic Church", [i.e. that it would become a small, unimportant sect that gathers perhaps 5,000 people in Austria].
Austria's "Old Catholics" went into a frenzy, writing a letter to Schönborn, demanding an "urgent clarification" and asking the prelate the rhetorical question: "What specific fate do you have in mind here?"
"I would like to apologise for a misunderstanding that I have caused through an ill-considered choice of words," Cardinal Schönborn wrote in a letter to the "Old Catholic" lay bishopess Maria Kubin, a lapsed Catholic, mother, grandmother and psychotherapist.
He didn't wish the German dioceses a schism, which is always a wound, Schönborn explained: "I did not intend it as a devaluation or criticism of the Old Catholic …More

“The super-consultative synodal process will never recover. After all, how will the Holy Father and his advisors respond when, in the first days of the synodal assembly this coming October, someone asks, “What secret projects are the Holy Father and Roman Curia working on right now that take no account of the synod process, contradict its decisions, and undermine its credibility?”
Denials can be offered aplenty, but once that clandestine horse has bolted from the synodal barn, it is hard to get it back. Especially since the African bishops shot it dead at point-blank range. The synodal managers are desperately trying to breathe life into the expired steed, but trying to revive a dead horse is even more pointless than flogging it.”

Immoral Cardinal: Catholic Sexual Morality Is "Defective"

The "Religious Education Congress", an annual abomination held in Los Angeles under the supervision of Archbishop Gomez (Opus Dei), took place from 16 to 18 February with 12,000 participants.
This year it included a "dragon dance" (below) to celebrate the Chinese New Year.
In a talk at the congress, San Diego Cardinal Robert McElroy, 70, mentioned Francis' Ex-Synod and claimed that "the Church will rethink" its approach to unspecified moral issues [he meant homosexuality]. His given reason: "the understanding of human nature and moral reality on which previous doctrinal statements were made was in fact limited or defective".
Heretics always use the same trick when wanting to undermine a tenet of the faith. They claim that its "presuppositions", the "adopted philosophy", the "language used", or the "underlying cultural context" are "wrong". The truth is that the heretics are wrong.
The congress was the usual platform for heresy and liturgical abuses such as Eucharists using buckets and …More

Gloria Branciani, 59, a former member of Father Rupnik's Loyola community, presented her version of the affair with the former Jesuit at a press conference in Rome today.
It is a story of manipulation experienced as "devastating abuse". Branciani has now revealed her identity - while in 2022 she wrote her story under the pseudonym Anna.
She came without make-up, dyed hair, wore a purple knitted jumper and spoke with an upright posture.
Branciani met Rupnik, who is ten years her senior, when she was a student in Rome as her "spiritual guide". He complimented her and began to touch her. He always justified this on religious grounds, as a "contribution to her spiritual growth".
In the mid-1980s, Rupnik and Ivanka Hosta founded the Loyola Community. Branciani joined the group and went to Slovenia.
There, Rupnik's sexual urges became more aggressive and frequent. He wanted other sisters to have sex with him: "Our relationship wasn’t exclusive but had to be a relation in the image of the …More

Francis has named six new consultors to the General Secretariat of the Synod of Bishops. The new consultors include: Msgr. Alphonse Borras, a Belgian priest who was appointed an expert at the October 2023 Synod; Father Gilles Routhier, a Quebec theologian and seminary rector; Father Ormond Rush, who offered a personal (and highly selective) interpretation of the Second Vatican Council’s Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation during the October Synod; Sister Birgit Weiler, a German theologian in Peru and proponent of women’s ordination to the priesthood; Maria Clara Lucchetti Bingemer, a Brazilian theologian who is also a proponent of women’s ordination to the priesthood; Tricia Bruce, an American sociologist who conducted a study on women and the diaconate. None of the new consultors hails from Africa or Asia.

Francis Appointed Advocates of the [invalid] Ordination of Women to Ex-Synod

On 17th February Pope Francis appointed six new members to the Ex-Synod of Bishops that will take place from 2nd to 27th October:
- Monsignor Alphonse Borras, Episcopal Vicar of the Diocese of Liege.
- Gilles Routhier, professor of theology at Laval University in Canada.
- Ormond Rush, Associate Professor of Theology at the Australian Catholic University.

The three women support the idea of [invalidly] ordaining women to the priesthood. Sister Birgit Weiler is a member of the Medical Missionary Sisters. She works in the Amazon. According to her, "it must be possible for women who feel called to it to be admitted to the priesthood". Weiler knows of sisters in the Amazon who have been …More

When I was studying theology in seminary, this idea was all the rage. I think that's why the N. O. church has so many "permanent deacons" who are married men. Often they promote the notion that the deacon along with his wife constitute a "ministerial couple" That's why many traditionalist Catholics maintain that while many deacons (even priests) were married - they practiced perpetual continence ~ abstaining from martial relations.

The Vatican has asked the German bishops not to hold a vote on approving the statutes of their "Synodal Committee" at next week's plenary assembly in Augsburg, writes Domradio.de (17 February).
The "Synodal Committee" is to be a permanent body of bishops and lay church bureaucrats that will make decisions along the lines of an Anglican synod.
Anglican synods are governing bodies made up of representatives of bishops, clergy and laity who have the authority to decide on matters of doctrine, liturgy and other agendas for their respective churches.
The vote had been scheduled. Now the presiding bishop, Georg Bätzing, has informed his fellow bishops to remove the item from the agenda.
The Vatican's intervention is difficult to understand, given that Francis himself had already changed the Ex-Synod of Bishops along Anglican lines.

It was clearly an ill-considered thing to do as it was done. Given what many of our parishes have been enticed to do during this particular pontificate, a regular exorcism for all churches might be spiritual prudent and revitalizing.

Sodoma-and-Gomorra Funeral In New York Cathedral

A funeral service was held at St Patrick's Cathedral in New York on Thursday for a male homosexual activist and prostitute known as "Cecilia" Gentili, 52.
The AIDS activist's cause of death was not announced. Born in Argentina, Gentili was subjected to homosexual abuse by a neighbour throughout his childhood, starting at the age of six.
By the age of 12, he considered himself a "homosexual". He later began dressing as a woman and changed his name.
In search of a better life, Gentili became an illegal immigrant in the US in 2003 and earned money as a prostitute. Six years later he was arrested for drug possession.
The anti-Catholic NyTimes.com calls the funeral an event probably without precedent in Catholic history, because the unrepentant homosexual activist also denied the existence of God.
The funeral was a celebration of Gentili's vice and "an exuberant piece of political theatre".
Over 1,000 participants, several hundred of them transvestites, arrived in unashamed outfits - glittering …More
