“Comedian” Interrupts Easter Mass at Vienna’s Cathedral With Pizza Delivery

A "comedian" disguised as a pizza delivery boy disturbed the Mass in the cathedral.

Edit: Maybe it was a pizza delivery man disguised as a pizza delivery boy? Or maybe it was a publicity stunt disguised as a comedy routine? They should take their act in the Hadj.

Vienna ( The group "Wiener Schmäh" [Vienna Revile]  disrupted Mass in St. Stephen's Cathedral on Easter Sunday. A "comedian" disguised as a pizza delivery boy had disturbed Mass in the cathedral. At first, as one video shows, a man kneels in front of the altar and apparently prays, when a pizza delivery man comes to the church and delivers the desired pizza Margherita. Security staff have detained the comedians and notified the police that the comedians are now facing a penalty for disturbing public order and degrading religious beliefs.

Edit: It looks like it was Easter Sunday, but it also looks dark outside. I checked out the diocesan website, and they have a Mass at 7pm on Easter Sunday. Talk about illicit. There were a lot of empty chairs, which seemed unusual, even in Austria, but perhaps these really late evening Gnostic-Style Masses aren’t very popular. 

Not only that, but what’s going on with the ugly frippery hanging from the ceiling? Despite Schönborn being the local ordinary and a aberrosexual promoting rector in Tony Faber, it’s hard to override the beauty and piety inherent to the place.

It’s not clear why people thought this was funny. There are a lot of dislikes on the video, but many more likes and the comment section has a lot of people asking Wiener Schmäh why they don’t try this gag in a mosque with pork. 


Swiss Bishop Doesn’t Need Sexual Morality of the Church

Bishop Felix Gmür has said that sexual morality is not the core competence of the church and that it should have less say.

Basel ( The Basel Bishop Felix Gmür claimed in an interview with the Church paper of the diocese of Basel that in the catechism on the subject of sexual morality, there is too little scientific knowledge  and being receptive of the  changed reality of life, and there is a need for action. Gmür said that sexual morality is not the core competence of theChurch  and that it should have less to say about it. "It should talk less about it and not moralize, but give priority to the conscience of people and not judge," said the bishop.

Pilgrimages of Tradition to Notre Dame

Pentecost pilgrimage of the Tradition 2019

(Paris) From Saturday, June 8, to Whit Monday, June 10, the 37th International Pentecost Pilgrimage of Tradition takes place from Paris to Chartres. Starting point of the pilgrimage was the cathedral Notre-Dame de Paris, which was engulfed in flames on the evening of April 15.

From Paris to Chartres

"Even if it burned down ... on to Paris for the Whit Pilgrimage 2019 from Paris to Chartres!", is what it reads in the flyer.

Pentecost Pilgrimage 2019 of the Ecclesia Dei communities

The pilgrimage of 2019 is under the motto "The peace of Christ through the kingdom of Christ.” The Organizing Committee is close to the so-called Ecclesia Dei communities, which are in full unity with the Church. The altar service will be performed this year by the Institute of Christ King and Sovereign Priest.

The pilgrimage led so far from the Marian Cathedral of Paris to the Marian Cathedral of Chartres. The goal remains the same, the new starting point, where the Holy Mass is celebrated at the beginning of the pilgrimage, has not yet been announced. The organizers of the committee Notre-Dame de Chrétienté are looking for a suitable substitute able to welcome the large crowd of mainly young pilgrims.

"This year's pilgrimage has received a special significance because of the fire. Let us hurry to Paris, to Notre-Dame, in the name of tradition! "

Information and participation on the official website for the pilgrimage: Notre-Dame de Chrétienté.

The US Chapter, co-ordinated by The Remnant publisher, has a new website with a video that gives an impression of the tradition of the Pentecost pilgrimage. See also the following video:

From Chartres to Paris

Pentecost pilgrimage 2019 of the Pius Brotherhood

First undertaken in 1983, the Pentecost pilgrimage split due to the legitimate but unauthorized episcopal ordinations, which Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre performed in 1988. Since then, a special pilgrimage on Pentecost has been carried out by the Society of St. Pius X, which takes the opposite route, that is, from Chartres to Paris. Because of her unclear canonical situation, the episcopal churches are not available to them. Also, at the starting point in Chartres and at the destination in Paris, the Holy Masses are therefore celebrated in the open air.

The Pentecost pilgrimage is organized by the Society of Saint Pius under the motto "Serving Christendom".

Both pilgrimages have in common that  they will cover the approximately 100 kilometers between Paris and Chartres and vice versa on foot.

Information and participation on the official website of the pilgrimage: Pelegrinages de Tradition.

Information and opportunities for interested pilgrims from the German-speaking countries can be found on the websites of the respective communities and their branches.

Horror Missae: Priest Dresses as Easter Egg for Mass

Easter Sunday in Lecce: Pastor disguises himself as an Easter egg: "We are Easter. We all become the Easter egg. "

(Rome) While the blood of Christian martyrs was shed in Sri Lanka, on Easter Sunday a priest operated as an animator of his parish. He disguised himself for the Easter Mass as an Easter egg.

In Sri Lanka numerous bombs exploded. The Islamic assassins relentlessly demanded blood. In the 
churches of Kotahena, Negombo and Batticaloa still held the bodies of slain Christians. They had gathered to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, the most significant event for all humanity. The same is true of the faithful of the parish of St. Bernardine Realino in the episcopal city of Lecce in southern Italy.

The Christians in Sri Lanka expected death from the bombs of the Islamic terrorist militia Islamic State (IS). The Christians of the parish of Saint Bernardine Realino of Lecce awaited their pastor - disguised as an Easter egg.

Don Nando Capone appeared in his parish church as an Easter egg and in his homily also called on the faithful to "be Easter eggs themselves:”

"We are Easter. Each of you should be an Easter egg, a sign of new life, a surprise. Go beyond any wickedness, that is resurrection. "

This spiritually and theologically so "high" and "profound" interpretation of Easter is found readily in the superficial media circus.

The local Internet newspaper Lecce sette headlined enthusiastically:

Don Nando Superstar: The Easter sermon drives the Internet crazy

Let the show go on.

The sermon was posted as a video on Facebook with the comment:

"Happy Easter! Great Don Nando! The most beautiful sermon in the world!

Saint Bernard Realino was born in 1530 in Carpi, northern Italy. He studied medicine and law in Bologna. He exercised the office of mayor, Judge and prpsecutor in the following years in various cities in northern Italy. His legal skills quickly made him a sought after and successful professional man. In the wake of Prince Francesco Fernando d'Avalos d 'Aquino d'Aragona, viceroy in Habsburg Sicily, Bernhardin went to Naples. There, in 1564, after a Marian apparition, he decided to give up his career and enter the still-young, Jesuit order. Consecrated as a priest in 1567, Saint Francisco de Borgia, the third Superior General of the Jesuit Order, made him novice master in Naples. In 1574, the Order sent him to Apulia to found a branch in Lecce. There he worked as a gifted spiritual leader and preacher with great effect on the people and promoted the moral theological formation of the diocesan priests, of whom he made better confessors and preachers.

In 1610 he suffered two wounds in a fall, which no longer healed. Before his death in 1616, blood was taken from him, which liquefied as a "blood miracle" until the mid-19th century. During a canonical recognition in 1711, parts of his body were found unexplained, swimming in a dark red liquid that emitted a fragrant scent. The same thing was repeated in the case of recognition in the years 1804 and 1852. It could no longer be ascertained during the 1985 review.

When Saint Robert Bellarmine heard of his brother's death, he said:

"I've never heard a complaint about Father Realino, even though I was his provincial. Even those who were hostile to the Society and used every opportunity to talk unfavorably about them always made an exception for Realino. ... Everyone knows that he is a saint. "

The tomb of St. Bernardine Realino

In 1838, Pope Gregory XVI. the heroic virtue of Father Bernardino Realino was recognized. Pope Leo XIII. declared him blessed in 1896, after recognizing two miracles attributed to his intercession. After two more miracles, and the recognition of the commissions responsible, his canonization. was carried out by Pope Pius XII. In 1947. 

In the same year, the same Pope appointed him Patron of Lecce. So great was his reputation of holiness already during his lifetime, that in 1616 the city fathers of Lecce asked him on his deathbed twice to be patron of the city as soon as he got to heaven. The saint nodded twice.

The remains of Saint Bernard Realino are buried in the Jesuit church of Lecce.

There are worlds between Easter Sunday in Sri Lanka and the Easter performance of Lecce. There are also worlds between the holy patron Bernhardin Realino and Don Nando Capone.

Great Grandson of Kaiser Talks About His Faith

Race car driver and Kaiser-great-grandson: "The teaching of the Catholic Church helps me to keep developing my relationship with my Creator continuously."

Vienna ( "The teaching of the Catholic Church helps me to keep developing my relationship with my Creator, and keeps reminding me that there is more to it than what can be grasped
by the Hands.” With clear words, racer and Kaiser-great-grandson Ferdinand Habsburg gave an interview with "News" about his Catholic faith. According to his observations, the happier people are all spiritual. A special model of faith for him was his grandfather, Otto von Habsburg. Only at the age of 19 did Ferdinand become a confirmand, which at the time, he was very convinced about and ready for the important Sacrament. For the first time two years ago, where he had consciously sensed that there was a God. In the meantime, he has found his spiritual home in the Catholic Church. "Anyway, I'm certainly praying on a daily basis." Once upon a time somebody mentioned my belief on the plane because he noticed that I was praying the rosary, which was an interesting conversation.” On Sundays and public holidays, he goes to Holy Mass regularly, but sometimes he likes to go to Church alone to pray.

When asked how he would explain to an atheist the need to believe, Habsburg said:  "An atheist believes that there is no God. I truly believe that He exists. The existence of God can not be scientifically proven, but neither that he does not exist. We all believe in something, and in that sense I do not need to explain anything to him, because he has this need to believe, just like me, except that he just believes that there is only here and now." But he does not want to force anyone to be a believer. This is not possible. But for him, it would be nice if, through his faith and example, he would get some one to engage with God and find his way to Him.

Capuchin Administrator In Chile Isn’t Walking in the Steps of Padre Pio

The Capuchin Celestino Aos Braco, who has not served as Administrator of Santiago de Chile for four weeks, is denying Communion kneeling on the tongue to the faithful.

(Santiago de Chile) On March 23, Pope Francis appointed the Spanish Capuchin, Fr. Celestino Aos Braco, Apostolic Administrator of the Archdiocese of Santiago de Chile. At the Chrism Mass celebrated on April 18th with the priests of the diocese in the Cathedral Church of Santiago de Chile on April 18th, he refused the faithful, who knelt down to receive Communion, the very body of Christ.

According to Church law, priests, and more so the bishops, have a duty to exclude public sinners from Communion. If one follows the video of the Chrism Mass in Santiago de Chile, which was published by the archdiocese, then one would have to assume, that the Apostolic Administrator from the Capuchin Order had gifts like his brother, Saint Father Pio. But nothing is known yet.

But if Monsignor Aos Braco doesn’t have the ability to read souls, are the faithful who knelt down to receive Communion, publicly known sinners? And of all the publicly known sinners of Santiago de Chile, who are unlawfully going to Communion, are they kneeling for Communion? This detail is significant because the administrator only denied kneeling believers who presented themselves for Communion.

But still, such a knowledge of public sinners is unknown. Rather, they were pious believers who abide by the ecclesiastical rules, because they see in this act, they offer the necessary homage to the Blessed Sacrament of the altar.

The Apostolic Administrator of Santiago de Chile sees it very differently. Receiving Communion while kneeling on the tongue is obviously such a nuisance that he refused the believers - completely unlawfully - to receive communion. 

The Capuchin Aos Braco was appointed by Pope Francis in 2014 as Bishop of the Chilean diocese of Copiapó. The Diocese has 220,000  Catholics and 25 priests, but 35 permanent deacons.

Last March, Pope Francis retired the former Primate of Chile, Ricardo Cardinal Ezzati, in connection with the sexual abuse scandal in the Latin American country surrounding the Karadima case.

Since the inauguration of Msgr. Aos Braco, the Archbishopric of Santiago de Chile has published only his Chrism Mass as a video, so that a comparison with the behavior of the administrator during Communion is not possible.

Obviously, what Alain Pronkin said in Le Journal de Montréal on April 18, 2016, confirms that Pope Francis chooses the "most progressive candidates" in his occupation of dioceses.

They are a nuisance to the doctrine and discipline of the Church, while they face various annoyances "mercifully".

Diocesan Cat Lady Solemnly Anathematizes Saint Benedict Center — Even Neo-Con Phil Lawler Isn’t Safe

Curia member of the Diocese of Manchester, USA indicate C.J Doyle and Phil Lawler in the diocese of Manchester, N.H are also not Catholic.

According to Mary  Ellen Mahon Cabinet Secretary for Catholic Formation and  Director of Pastoral Ministry, according to the diocese website, has stated that the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary at the St.Benedict Center,New Hampshire, can no longer be considered  Catholic.

It may be mentioned that according to Archbishop Augustine Di Noia , Adjunct Secretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith(CDF), Vatican the  "theological position regarding the principle Extra Ecclesiam Nullam [sic!] Salus" is unacceptable" for him since the Catechism of the Catholic Church n. 847 and 848 are exceptions.This has been posted on the diocese website.

847 This affirmation is not aimed at those who, through no fault of their own, do not know Christ and his Church:
Those who, through no fault of their own, do not know the Gospel of Christ or his Church, but who nevertheless seek God with a sincere heart, and, moved by grace, try in their actions to do his will as they know it through the dictates of their conscience - those too may achieve eternal salvation.
848 "Although in ways known to himself God can lead those who, through no fault of their own, are ignorant of the Gospel, to that faith without which it is impossible to please him, the Church still has the obligation and also the sacred right to evangelize all men."

Those saved in invincible ignorance refer to personally known non Catholics saved outside the Catholic Church, without faith and baptism(AG 7, LG 14) for the Secretaries of the CDF. So they become exceptions to the traditional strict interpretation of the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus(EENS).If they were invisible and unknown they could not be exceptions.

This is irrational since there are no such cases in 2019.

In his Doctrinal reply in 2016 Brother Andre Marie MICM, Prior at the St. Benedict Center states that there are no personally known cases of people saved in invincible ignorance.They would only be known to God.
He meant possibilties are not real people in 2016.

So he accepts being saved in invincible ignorance as hypothetical. A  theoretical possibility but not a practical exception to EENS. This is common sense. There cannot be any literal case of someone saved outside the Church.

The popes and saints in over the centuries knew this when they referred to the baptism of desire, baptism of blood and being saved in invincible ignorance.
But the CDF Secretaries interpret Lumen Gentium  8 etc as being exceptions to EENS. LG 8 only refers to a hypothetical cases and not someone personally known.So the CDF is irrational.

So with this irrationality Archbishop Di Noia and the CDF Secretary, Archbishop Morandi, create a rupture with EENS, the past exclusive ecclesiology, an ecumenism of return and the Syllabus of Errors.Their doctrinal position is irrational, non traditional and heretical.Now they want Brother Andre Marie to also interpret Magisterial documents with this irrationality to be accepted legally as a Catholic.

C.J Doyle was interviewed recently by Michael Voris on the Vortex.He also affirms the strict interpretation of the dogma EENS. It is the same with Phil Lawler who teaches at the Thomas More College of Liberal Arts in New Hampshire. Legally they are not Catholics for the Diocese and the CDF.
Meanwhile Ellen Goodreau, Mary Ellen Mahon, Fr. Matthew Mason and others in the Curia interpret Vatican Council II and EENS assuming non existing people are objective examples of salvation outside the Church.So the dogma EENS as it was known to the Magisterium in the 16th century, is obsolete. They are legally Catholics.To be legal, Catholics have to use an  irrationality a traditional interpretation of Magisterial documents. This would be expected also of young 
Catholics who have a vocation to the religious life.

Ms. Mary Ellen Mahon

[Her Grace, Mother Ellen Mahon] Diocese of Manchester Curia member says Slaves of Mary Immaculate Heart of Mary, at St.Benedict Center, N.H are 'no longer to be considered Catholic'

Edit: also, is Voris hedging his bets with this poor refutation of Father Feeney’s position?  It’s
hard to take Jim Russel seriously when he can’t get simple details about Father Feeney’s biography correct:
Long after his death in 1978, Fr. Leonard Feeney remains a polarizing and controversial figure. While Feeney appears to have always sought the full embrace of Catholic truth, he was outside the full embrace of the Catholic Church from 1953 to 1972, excommunicated for refusing to obey his religious and hierarchical superiors. Mercifully, Feeney was eventually reconciled to the Church, spending the last years of his life in full communion with the Church. [Without recanting what the Church has always taught. As he was invited by the local ordinary, Father Feeney recited the beautiful Athanasian Creed which I reproduce below as part of the reconciliation ceremony.] 

The Quicumque

Whosoever will be saved, before all things it is necessary that he hold the Catholic Faith. Which Faith except everyone do keep whole and undefiled, without doubt he shall perish everlastingly. And the Catholic Faithis this, that we worship one God in Trinity and Trinity in Unity. Neither confounding the Persons, nor dividing the Substance. For there is one Person of the Father, another of the Son, and another of the Holy Ghost. But the Godhead of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Ghost is all One, the Glory Equal, the Majesty Co-Eternal. Such as the Father is, such is the Son, and such is the Holy Ghost. The Father Uncreate, the Son Uncreate, and the Holy Ghost Uncreate. The Father Incomprehensible, the Son Incomprehensible, and the Holy Ghost Incomprehensible. The Father Eternal, the Son Eternal, and the Holy Ghost Eternal and yet they are not Three Eternals but One Eternal. As also there are not Three Uncreated, nor Three Incomprehensibles, but One Uncreated, and One Incomprehensible. So likewise the Father is Almighty, the Son Almighty, and the Holy Ghost Almighty. And yet they are not Three Almighties but One Almighty.

ACLU Wins Case Against Catholic Social Services


What Saint Sebastian and Saint Anthony of Padua Looked Like Before the Bombing

Edit: they have the Gather Hymnal but with traditional local instruments. Despite this, there is a great deal of piety, kneeling for Communion and a lot of religious. Negombo itself is 65% Catholic and known as the “Little Rome”. At the Shrine of Saint Anthony, Masses are filled to the point where people are sitting in the aisles and the narthex at the back of the Church. More photos of the aftermath. Cardinal Ranjith responded by cancelling Easter Mass.

Meanwhile, Cardinal Sarah isn’t shy about identifying those responsible.

Pope Fails to Mention Perpetrators in Sri Lankan Attacks

Edit: he actually talks about everything except the real problem. It’s probabably what’s left of Christendom’s fault for being triumphalistic and rigid. 

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis denounced the “cruel violence” of the Easter Sunday slaughter of Christians and foreigners in Sri Lanka as he celebrated the most joyful moment on the Christian liturgical calendar by lamenting the bloodshed and political violence afflicting many parts of the world.

Francis skipped his homily during Easter Mass but delivered his traditional “Urbi et Orbi” (To the city and the world) speech highlighting conflicts in the Mideast, Africa and the Americas and demanding that political leaders put aside their differences and work for peace.

“May the one who gives us his peace end the roar of arms, both in areas of conflict and in our cities, and inspire the leaders of nations to work for an end to the arms race and the troubling spread of weaponry, especially in the economically more advanced countries,” Francis said from the loggia of St. Peter’s Basilica overlooking the flower-decked square below.

Church Militant Defends Saint Benedict Center

Edit: Voris was defending the dogma long before this.

   The Friends of Saint Benedict Center today are applauding the courageous decision of Michael Voris and to publicly defend the Saint Benedict Center in Richmond, New Hampshire---a religious community of faithful Catholics struggling to preserve their traditional apostolate in the face of heavy handed attempts by the troubled Diocese of Manchester to suppress them and to close down their beloved Immaculate Heart of Mary School.
   In a series of four episodes of “The Vortex,” beginning on Thursday, April 11th, and continuing through Tuesday of Holy Week, April 16th, Voris provided comprehensive coverage of the unjust persecution which the members and supporters of the Saint Benedict Center have been forced to endure at the hands of diocesan bureaucrats in Manchester.
   In the first Vortex on April 11th, Voris offered a vigorous defense of the necessity of the Catholic Faith for salvation, embodied in the traditional and thrice defined dogma Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus---Outside the Church there is no salvation.
   Voris, in the second episode on April 12th, gave his viewers a thoughtful presentation on the life and work of the late Father Leonard Feeney, debunking many of the myths associated with that heroic priest.
   On April 15th, Voris interviewed Brother Andre Marie, Prior of the Saint Benedict Center, who told of the devastating trauma which diocesan decrees have inflicted not only upon the Brothers and Sisters of the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, but upon the parents, teachers and students of Immaculate Heart of Mary School. Poignantly, Brother Andre spoke of the open door of the empty tabernacle in their chapel, after the diocese forbade them from keeping the Blessed Sacrament there.
   In the same episode, Voris also interviewed C. J. Doyle of the Friends of Saint Benedict Center, who raised the question of why, at a time of so much scandal, dissent and corruption in the Church, is the Diocese of Manchester targeting for destruction a group of innocent, unoffending traditional Catholics who are bringing souls into the Church. Doyle also recounted the troubled history of the scandal plagued Manchester diocese.
   In a separate segment, Voris gave his viewers the opportunity to watch the entire interview with Brother Andre, who gave a forthright and detailed narrative on the history of the Center, its doctrinal position, and its relationship with the hierarchy.
   In the final episode on April 16th, Voris offered his viewers the simple testimony of the Brothers and Sisters of Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, all of whom spoke of their desire to serve Our Lord and Our Lady by saving souls.
   C. J. Doyle, spokesman for the Friends of Saint Benedict Center, made the following comment: “Michael Voris is not only to be commended for possessing the theological virtue of Faith, but for possessing, in abundance, and acting upon, the cardinal virtues of fortitude and justice. At a time when Church bureaucrats combine with the secular media and the anti-Christian bigots of the Southern Poverty Law Center to destroy a community of traditional Catholics, it is heartening and encouraging that a Catholic media voice with the range, influence and unquestioned orthodoxy of ChurchMilitant is willing to counter callous lies with a vigorous defense of the truth.”
   “The Friends of Saint Benedict Center wish to extend their profound gratitude to Michael Voris and to the entire staff of”
   The Friends of Saint Benedict Center is an organization of concerned lay Catholics who have come together to provide moral and material support for the Brothers and Sisters of the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, to advocate for them in the public square, and to oppose the unjust attempts by the Diocese of Manchester to suppress them and their apostolate.

Hero Priest of Notre Dame is Traditionalist

Edit: He clearly believes in the real presence!

[] The chaplain of the Paris firefighters, Father Jean-Marc Fournier, who is in his 50s, entered on Monday night the burning Notre Dame cathedral in order to save the Blessed Sacrament and the Crown of Thorns.

Fournier is a former member of the Fraternity of St Peter (FSSP). From 2000 to 2006 he served as assistant of the FSSP superior general.

In 2006 he became a military chaplain in Sissonne, France, working several years for the French military diocese. On his first trip to Afghanistan he was - according to his own testimony - "seized by fear.”

But Fournier learned to be courageous. In 2015, after the terrorist attack on the Paris Bataclan music venue where 89 were killed, he rushed inside in order to impart a general absolution.


Get Ready for Attempts to Wreckovate Notre Dame

Edit: as a set of very rich globalists and shadowy deep state individuals promise
To pay for the rebuilding of the Cathedral. France’s head of state and the Pope make overtures that they will build a kind of inclusive replacement. Clearly they want to erase France’s legacy.

As one Rolling Stone magazine  of degenerate music and entertainment puts it, ”The building was so overburdened with meaning that its burning feels like an act of liberation,

It’s frightening to think that the impending renovation (as opposed to restoration) will have in store for Catholics in Paris. Indeed, there are suggestions that a new renovation, which could be as controversial as the previous 19th century gothic renovation, could capture a new contemporary Church, like the hideous renovation of the Lourve.

One invading politician in Quebec even suggested the fire was divine intervention:

Québec Solidaire member Eve Torres suggested that the tragedy was “a result of a divine intervention related to the prohibition of religious symbols in France,” according to
The Pope of surprises undoubtedly sees an opportunity to vent his will to destroy here.

Feminist Agenda at Vatican II

By David Martin

In 1982, Cardinal Carlo Caffara, foundingPresident of the John Paul II Institute forMarriage and the Family was told by Sr.Lucy of Fatima that “the final battle between the Lord and the reign of Satan will be about marriage and the family.”

Sr. Lucy’s prophecy is unfolding in our time, evidenced by the fact that Rome has actively abetted environmentalists in their quest to make “Mother Earth” a safer place through populationcontrol. It is no secret that since 2013, the Vatican has repeatedlyinvited abortion advocates like Jeffrey Sachs, Ban Ki moon, and Paul Ehrlich to speak to the Church about their vision of a safer and better world through abortion and contraception.

Hence, defense of life is a top priority among the true defenders of the Faith who have come forward today to expose this collusion with anti-life. Taking a stand against abortion is certainly one of the key ways of defending the Faith in these turbulent times

Defending Life Means Denouncing Feminism

But defending life also means denouncing feminism, which reared its head at Vatican II, because feminism is the foundation of abortion. There is an urgent need to reiterate the Church's continuous teaching that the man is the head of the household. “Because he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of the man. For the man is not of the woman, but the woman of the man. For the man was not created for the woman, but the woman for the man.” (1 Cor. 11: 7-9)

A woman's vocation as wife is to submit to her husband, not to compete with him as an equal. Adherence to this rule is what will effectively offset the ensuing culture of death that feminism has brought with it, whereas the tumor of abortion will never cease as long as the cancer of feminism is cultured in the Church.

Unfortunately, Vatican II helped to spawn today’s culture of death, because the seeds of feminism were planted in the conciliar documents. In Gaudium et Spes, it states for instance:

“Women claim parity with men in fact as well as in rights, where they have not already obtained it.” [9] “It is regrettable that those basic personal rights are not yet being respected everywhere, as in the case with women who are denied the chance to freely
choose.” [29]

What is reflected here is the basic protest or "dogma" of the feminist, not the dogma of Faith. In God's eyes women do not stand at “parity” with men, nor must they assert themselves as men, whether in the home, in society, or in the Church. St. Paul says, “I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to use authority over the man: but to be in silence.”(1 Timothy 2:12) The woman is the husband's helpmate, not his equal. And whereas she is to be treated with love and respect, she is not to compete with her husband, because God first created the man to his own image (Genesis 2:7), and then he formed the woman from the man, and for the man. (Genesis 2: 21-25)

The majority of divorces and broken homes today are due to the fact that women generally no longer submit their husbands. St. Paul teaches that in the same way the church must be subject to Christ, so wives must be subject to their husbands. “Let women be subject to their husbands, as to the Lord: Because the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ is the head of the church. He is the Savior of his body.” (Ephesians 5: 22,23)

In the Vatican II statements on marriage, there is absolutely nothing stated along these lines. The documents make no mention of this essential teaching, but rather lay the groundwork for feminism. The Vatican II Council denounces “underrating women's legitimate social advancement” (GS, article 52), and cites it the duty of all to “ensure the recognition and implementation everywhere of the right of every person to human and 
civil culture in harmony with the dignity of thehuman person, without distinction of race, sex, nation, religion, or social circumstances.” (GS-60)

The Vatican II Decree on the Apostolate of Lay People, Apostolicam Actuositatem, states: “Since in our days women are taking an increasingly active share in the whole life of society, it is very important that their participation in the various sectors of the Church's apostolate should likewise develop.” (AA-9) Here the Council advocates that the Church should follow the world’s advice concerning the role of women, yet in his encyclical “Quadragesima Anno,” Pope Pius XI condemned women's participation in ministry as “a grave disorder to eliminate at all cost” since it “takes mothers of families” away from their duties at home. (AA S 23)

Consistent with this is the fact that a great many cardinals atVatican II spoke up in favor of artificial contraception—a treasonous act that triggered backlash from Pope Paul VI—and it was this conciliar fight over contraception that eventually led to the issuance of Humanae Vitae on July 25, 1968.

What the Vatican II feminist agenda has produced is a spirit of rebellion. The Church was called to be the Spouse of Christ without blemish, but at the Council she became unruly and threw off her wedding veil and began flirting with the world. Consequently, a spirit of infidelity has set in, evidenced even by the way women no longer cover their heads in Church. The eternal mandates for women set forth in 1 Corinthians 11 to wear head coverings during prayer are no longer observed, and are even rejected by many priests and nuns, some of whom are now
involved with abortion. It's all part of the false religious liberty that was a central theme of the Second Vatican Council—a discordant theme that didn't harmonize with God's plan for life.

When God's plan for the sanctification of women is again promoted from the pulpit, abortion will decrease and the bountiful fruits of life will again be evident as before the Council. God's plan in no way deprives women of their privilege to advance on the path of true success and liberty, but it must be done on God’s terms. What the Lord has endowed women with is the right to do what is right, that they might be liberated from wrong. St. Paul says, “She shall be saved through child bearing; if she continue in faith, and love, and sanctification, with sobriety.” (1 Timothy 2:15)

It is God above all who seeks the honor and sanctification of women, and what He requires is that women submit to their husbands and remember their place in the home with their children. 

No Women on the Altar  

Accordingly, they must remain off the altars of God and be silent in the Church, remembering the words of Holy Scripture: “Let women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted them to speak, but to be subject.” (1 Corinthians 14: 34)

This is not to imply that women should be recessive in proclaiming the truth in our discordant world. On the contrary, we need fighters from the ranks of women who will stand up against these Femi-Nazis and break their horns before the public. God's will for women is their
sanctification, and we need more Joan of Arcs who will come forward and thunder against sin by proclaiming family values without respect to persons. The Lord wants women to be strong, not weak, but they can never be strong as long as they embrace the weakness of pride.

NOW is the time to declare that the women's rights movement that began fifty years ago has ruined it for women, their children, and society. Women today are discouraged about their identity where they feel they must be ashamed of their gender, and this poor example
of mothers is what has turned many a young man against women where they now seek illicit relations with the same sex. The pedophilia scandal among the clergy is the sorrowful end of this curse (homosexuality), so if women truly want to be “actively involved” with the good of the Church, they must embrace family values in the home and look to the husband as the head of the household.

For their encouragement, let them look to the example of the Blessed Virgin, who was never once seen on a soapbox preaching in public. She left this to the men, and her humility is what gave her the power to crush the head of Satan.

True Liberation

By following the example of Our Lady, women too can share in this power over Satan and be liberated from this fear that compels them to impress men with their “equality.” When faith and love reign in the heart there is no need to impress anyone, since we live for God, being dead to the world.

What today’s sophisticated woman needs is liberation from silliness, and a true pastor of the Faith will always encourage her to accept this challenge. Let them ponder the words of St. Paul who taught the way of true liberty:

“If you be risen with Christ, seek the things that are above; where Christ is sitting at the right hand of God: Mind the things that are above, not the things that are upon the earth. For you are dead; and your life is hid with Christ in God.... Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, lust, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is the service of idols. For which things the wrath of God cometh upon the children of unbelief.” (Col. 3:1-6)
