Italy’s Bishops’ Conference Mouthpiece Libels Cardinal Burke

Edit: libel is a criminal offense in Italy. 

[Gloria.TV] In April, Avvenire, the daily of the Italian bishops, published a nasty piece against Cardinal Raymond Burke, written by Gianni Gennari, a former priest known for his attacks against Benedict XVI and John Paul II.

Without checking the facts, Gennari falsely accused the cardinal of having called Pope Francis an antichrist during a talk in Rome.

Only in June Avvenire published an abbreviated version of Burke’s reply in which he pointed out that Gennari’s claims where in no way related to what he had said during his talk. He asked Avvenire for a public rectification and excuse.

Marco Tarquinio, Avvenire’s editor-in-chief, commented Burke’s letter defending Gennari’s calumnies. He added more insults and lies by referring to other alleged statements of Burke for which he did not even indicate the source.

The Catholic outlet LaNuovaBQ.it commented on Tarquinio’s behaviour like this, “A newspaper set up on the model of the Pravda of Soviet memory, cannot but handle those it perceives as 'enemies of the revolution' in a Soviet way.”

Cardinal McCarrick is an Evil Sexual Predator

Edit: now that someone has publicly accused McCarrick, it’s interesting that Richard Sipe is on record very publicly warning Benedict XVI about the evils of Collegeville on TIA way back in 2008. Rod Dreher just wrote an explosive “told ya so” piece wherein he says: 

I never wrote the story about McCarrick, because I could not get anybody to go on the record. That spring, I fielded more than a few calls from Catholic priests from the New Jersey area who had direct personal knowledge of McCarrick’s sexual derring-do with seminarians. They would phone me, tell me what they knew, and then beg me to “do something”! I would tell them that I could do nothing until and unless they provided documents, and/or were willing to put their name to public accusations.

Taking a look at Richard Sipe’s piece will show you just how slippery this McCormick is, but also how negligent McCarrick’s superiors were, since they were already well-informed about his sexual depravity before they appointed him to one of ththe Church’s most important Sees. Dreher says there was a well-known conservative priest had intervened to defend McCarrick. Wonder who that was? 

However much we might deplore Dreher’s apostasy, he certainly was aware of a lot of dirt in the hierarchy that no one, including Benedict XVI and “Saint” John Paul II., effectively addressed.

Here’s Sipe:

[TIA] Your Holiness, I, Richard Sipe, approach you reluctantly to speak about the problem of sexual abuse by priests and bishops in the United States, but I am encouraged and prompted by the directive of Vatican II, Lumen Gentium,Chapter IV, No. 37. “By reason of knowledge, competence…the laity are empowered—indeed sometimes obliged—to manifest their opinion on those things that pertain to the good of the Church.” And also moved by your heartfelt demonstration of concern for victims on your recent visit to the United States I bring to your attention a dimension of the crisis not yet addressed. It is closer to the systemic center of the problem and one most difficult for you to address.

Card. McCarrick gives an appearance of holiness

Card. McCarrick, right, under the appearance of holiness...
As the crisis of sexual abuse of our children and vulnerable adults by priests and bishops in the United States is unfolding, the dynamics of this dysfunction are becoming painfully clear. 

This sexual aberration is not generated from the bottom up - that is only from unsuitable candidates - but from the top down - that is from the sexual behaviors of superiors, even bishops and cardinals. 

The problem facing us in the American church is systemic. I will present Your Holiness with only a few examples: 

Bishop Thomas Lyons, now deceased, who was an Auxiliary in the Archdiocese of Washington D.C. groomed, seduced, and sexually abused a boy from the time he was seven years old until he was 17. When that boy grew into manhood he in turn abused his own child and young relatives. When I asked him about his actions he said to me, “I thought it was natural. Father (Lyons) told me a priest showed him this when he was growing up.” A pattern was perpetuated for at least four generations. 


Abbot John Eidenschink of St. John’s Abbey, Collegeville, Minnesota sexually abused some of his young monks during confession and spiritual direction. He admitted this behavior in regard to two of the monks I interviewed. They described the behavior in disturbingly graphic detail. Older monks that I interviewed told me that they knew that John’s Novice Master was inappropriately affectionate with him during his two years as a novice. More than a dozen of the monks of this monastery have been credibly accused of abuse of minors while Abbot Eidenschink was promoted to President of his Monastic Congregation, the American Cassinese. 

While I was Adjunct Professor at a Pontifical Seminary, St. Mary’s Baltimore (1972-1984) a number of seminarians came to me with concerns about the behavior of Theodore E. McCarrick, then bishop of Metuchen, New Jersey. It has been widely known for several decades that Bishop/Archbishop now Cardinal Theodore E. McCarrick took seminarians and young priests to a shore home in New Jersey, sites in New York, and other places and slept with some of them. He established 
a coterie of young seminarians and priests that he encouraged to call him “Uncle Ted.” I have his correspondence where he referred to these men as being “cousins” with each other.

'Uncle Ted' pursued several seminarians and priests

'Uncle Ted' allegedly used different pretexts to attract seminarians and priests
Catholic journalist Matt C. Abbott already featured the statements of two priests (2005) and one ex-priest (2006) about McCarrick. All three were "in the know" and aware of the Cardinal McCarrick’s activities in the same mode as I had heard at the seminary. None of these reporters, as far as Abbott knew, had sexual contact with the cardinal in the infamous sleepovers, but one had first hand reports from a seminarian/priest who did share a bed and received cards and letters from McCarrick. The modus operendi is similar to the documents and letters I have received from a priest who describes in detail McCarrick’s sexual advances and personal activity. At least one prominent journalist at the Boston Globe was aware of McCarrick from his investigation of another priest, but until now legal documentation has not been available. And even at this point the complete story cannot be published because priest reporters are afraid of reprisals. 

Your Holiness, you must seek out and listen to these stories, as I have from many priests about their seduction by highly placed clerics, and the dire consequences in their lives that does end with personal distress. 

I know the names of at least four priests who have had sexual encounters with Cardinal McCarrick. I have documents and letters that record the first hand testimony and eye witness accounts of McCarrick, then archbishop of Newark, New Jersey actually having sex with a priest, and at other times subjecting a priest to unwanted sexual advances. 

Your Holiness, you must seek out and listen to the stories, as I have from many priests about their seduction by highly placed clerics, and the dire consequences in their lives that does end in their victimization alone. 

Such behavior fosters confusion and makes celibacy problematic for seminarians and priests. This abuse paves the way for them to pass the tradition on — to have sex with each other and even with minors. 

The pattern and practice of priests in positions of responsibility for the training of men for the priesthood — rectors, confessors, spiritual directors, novice masters, and other clergy — who have sexual relations with seminarians and other priests is rampant in the Catholic Church in the United States. I have reviewed hundreds of documents that record just such behavior and interviewed scores of priests who have suffered from this activity. Priests, sexually active in the above manner have frequently been appointed by the Vatican to be ordained bishops or even created cardinals. 

I approach Your Holiness with due reverence, but with the same intensity that motivated Peter Damian to lay out before your predecessor, Pope Leo IX, a description of the condition of the clergy during his time. The problems he spoke of are similar and as great now in the United States as they were then in Rome. If Your Holiness requests I will submit to you personally documentation of that about which I have spoken.

Your Holiness, I submit this to you with urgent concern for our Church, especially for the young and our clergy.

Afghan Sexually Abuses 12-Year Old Girl


Esslingen - A 21-year-old Afghan  is suspected in Esslingen to have sexually abused a 12-year-old girl.

According to the Stuttgart public prosecutor, the suspect is in custody. He is said to have abused the girl in the night of May 18 in his room at Esslinger asylum facility, as the authority announced on Wednesday. According to this, the child had voluntarily visited the Afghan with a 16-year-old friend, and some other asylum seekers they knew. 

The girls wanted to  stay there after missing the last bus. The man is said to have exploited the situation and sexually abused the twelve-year-old. When the other overnight guests woke up, he let go of the girl.

The prosecutor issued a warrant for the arrest of the Afghan, who only sporadically stayed at the property. Last Friday, he was finally arrested there. The man already sought by police for theft is in custody.

They Shouted “Allahu Akbar”: Two Cases

(Paris) The terror of the assault in the supermarket Leclerc in Seyne-sur-Mer is still fresh in people’s memories as happened in France already with the next attack. In both, the motive refers to Islam, but the authorities seem to ignore it.

A 24-year-old Muslim woman, who was already on record with the police for other violent crimes, arrived on Sunday dressed in black robes and entered the supermarket shouting "Allahu Akbar: You are all infidels!" Then she rammed the knife she carried into the breast of a female customer and struck a saleswoman in the eye.

Whether because of the delusion called political correctness or out of complete misunderstanding of Islamic reality, in any case, the competent prosecutor's office immediately put the murder in the category of individual cases by the mentally disturbed. The procedure is familiar. The official requirement seems to be: De-escalation at all costs and no connection with Islam.

On the other hand, however l, the dynamics of the act and the vocabulary used by the assassin speaks. Nothing seems to have been left to chance. The investigation continues meanwhile, because many points of the incident are still "unclear" according to investigators.

Meanwhile, the press agencies had already report the next violence with an Islamic background. The rapid succession of the attacks shows that the individual case thesis is an official and media construct in order not to face the political reality, and more importantly, to prevent the population from drawing the necessary conclusions from it.

A few hours after the attack on the supermarket, a 29-year-old Muslim rose in the night hours yesterday with the same dynamic. At 1.50 am he tried to attack two police officers from Nice. He, too, was armed with a knife, and he also shouted to the victims, "You are unbelievers, I will kill you."

The culprit had been surprised by the two police officers, as he filmed the town hall and some streets and alleys. When he was stopped, he immediately wanted to attack. The officers were able to disarm him and arrest him. He was already known to the police, but according to anti-terrorist units with initial reports he was a blank slate.

Both incidents have many similarities. It therefore seems incomprehensible why the authorities classify them as banal individual acts. The fact is that the French feel less and less safe in their own homes, especially on the streets after dark. There is a growing mix of Muslim violent criminals and common criminals. The extent to which both groups are congruent can at best be foreseen in the absence of corresponding police statistics.

As long as the sense of security of the citizens is suffering because they no longer feel safe on the streets in their own country, politics, the judiciary and the police do not sufficiently fulfill their tasks. The patrolling military in the French cities does not improve security, but only shows false actionism, which blatantly confirms the perceived loss of security. Above all, the French military on France's roads reveals the helplessness of the political decision-makers, who, locked up in a "multi-cultural” tower have shown themselves "without alternative" to shirk the real questions.

30 Years of the FSSP — New Website


30 years of the Society of Saint Peter - new website

(Berne) The General House of the FSSP has a new website.

On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of its founding, the Fraternal Society of St. Peter  (FSSP), established in 1988, presents itself on the Internet with a new image. The initiative comes from the General House of the Ecclesia Dei Community, which is located in Friborg, Switzerland. The founding date is July 18, 1988, when twelve priests and seminarians completed the foundation in the Swiss Abbey of Hauterive in the canton of Friborg.

The website provides information about the traditional community, introduces the Superior General and his assistants as well as the various districts.

As a "joint mission" of the Society, the site says:

"This communal mission has a twofold aspect: first, the sanctification and formation of priests in the traditional liturgy commonly called the Extraordinary Form of the Roman rite. Second, the care of souls and the pastoral work of priests in the service of the Church.”

The Superior General is Fr. John Berg. He is assisted by Father José Calvin, Fr. Patrick du Faÿ de Choisinet (at the same time Rector of the Seminary of St. Peter in Wigratzbad) and Fr. Andrzej Komorowski (at the same time General Treasurer), and Fr. John Brancich and Fr. Josef Bisig as counselors. The Office of the Secretary-General currently is exercised by P. Arnaud Evrat. German-speaking district superior is P. Bernhard Gerstle.

The worldwide offices and apostolates of the Brotherhood are listed and should be clearly displayed on an interactive map. The latter does not work, however. With reworks is therefore to be expected

Today, the Brotherhood of St. Peter has 287 priests and 150 seminarians. Its affiliated Confraternity St. Peter  includes almost 6,000 laymen.

The Collective Image of the Inquisition is Fake News

(Rome) The historian Anna Foa, former Assistant Professor of Modern History at the Roman University of La Sapienza, recently spoke in the media on the subject of Inquisition, including the essay "Inquisition without a Monster" in the business daily Il Sole 24 Ore. The occasion was a historic conference to open the Vatican Secret Archives 20 years ago.
 
Foa recalled that the latest state of research refutes all "black legends" of the Holy Inquisition. The numerous allegations against the Inquisition have indeed entered into the collective memory, but only in recent times. They have little to do with historical reality.
 
The charges brought against the Church in connection with the Inquisition are genuine "fake news". The collective memory, which obviously has a very clear idea of ​​what the Inquisition was, does not go back to direct knowledge, but is an anti-Catholic construct whose origins date back to the eighteenth century. Many sides have worked on the caricature.
 
The problem, Foa says, is, as with much fake news, that false claims can be "louder" than the truth. This has to do mainly with who controls opinion, but also with the fact that some want to believe the fake news.
 
"Passions and prejudices," Foa said regretfully, "are a myth-factory" that seem to nourish themselves.
So it is in connection with the Inquisition and the Church. The historical facts are now known and researched, but the false stereotypes in people's minds are stronger. The historical reality is so different that it not only is dominated by every form of sensationalism, but suffocates demands for love of truth and intellectual honesty for a fundamental revision of the previous picture of history.
 
According to Foa, it is appropriate and urgent to revise the extent of the charges against the Church and its condemnation. But above all, the actual role of the Inquisition should distinguish between actual and alleged persecution.
 
There is a gigantic abyss between scientific certainty and "popular opinion" lay on the subject of Inquisition. The Internet has so far brought no improvement in the situation. Rather the widespread distorted image is widely disseminated further in the global network. It was daunting to see, says Foa, how truthful many people are against the Fake News Inquisition implanted in their minds. It turns out to be very difficult to break up absolutely baseless, but solidified prejudices. Unfortunately, it is difficult to pave the way for the truth while fake news are always new and rapidly spreading.
 
Anna Foa, graduated in 1968 with distinction at the University La Sapienza, where she later taught herself. She is a great-granddaughter of the anti-Zionist chief rabbi of Turin, Giuseppe Foa (1840-1917) and daughter of a founding father of post-war democratic Italy, the left-wing, atheist party leader and Member of Parliament Vittorio Foa (1910-2008). 1)
 
His daughter Anna Foa returned to her Jewish faith. Most recently, she was a visiting professor at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

Argentine National Football Team Has No Time for Pope



(Rome) Pope Francis and the World Cup. On May 21, the Argentine website Doble Amarilla announced that Pope Francis will receive the Argentine national team on 3 June before moving on to Russia for the World Cup.

Yesterday, Vatican spokesman Greg Burke tweeted:

"Pope Francis receives today at 15.30 clock (Roman time) the Argentine football selection in Santa Marta."

A few hours later he had to correct himself:

"UPDATE: The Pope's audience with the Argentine selection scheduled for today was canceled. We are looking forward to seeing you return with the World Cup! "

Like this?




An earlier visit by the Argentine national team to Pope Francis.

In fact, the Argentine national team, according to the Argentine sports side Olé, had already canceled a visit to Rome at the end of May. The message seems to have been passed in the Sacri Palazzi but not to the Vatican spokesman.

In May, there were concrete negotiations between the Vatican and the football team about a visit to the Pope. The coaches moved away from the idea at the end of the month. A whole training-free day was "too much" for the team. On May 29, Jorge Miadosqui confirmed the cancellation: "We have no time for an audience with the Pope."

The Argentine football team is currently training in Barcelona. Tomorrow it will fly to Israel for a friendly match and finally to Russia for the World Cup on Sunday.

Pope Throws Enemy Archbishop in the Street

Archbishop Hector Ruben Aguer at Corpus Christi in his last act
 as ordinary of La Plata
Edit: when they do things like this, as they often have, there is need of retribution.  Bergoglio did the same to Bishop Rogelio Plano, who died not long after.


(Buenos Aires) The retirement of Archbishop Hector Ruben Aguer of La Plata has been closely watched for the past few weeks. Archbishop Aguer has been Bergoglio's leading opponent in Argentina for the past 25 years. When he leaves, the Church's Maximum Leader is letting him feel his displeasure.
 
As previously reported , the Jesuit Bergoglio and the secular priest Aguer, both from Buenos Aires, became Auxiliary Bishops of Buenos Aires at the beginning of the 1990s. At that moment, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who until then had been "exiled" internally, had the better luck between the two. He began his phenomenal rise.
 
With the help of the then Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Antonio Cardinal Quarrancino, Bergoglio and not Aguer became the new Primate of Argentina. Although Aguer was made the archbishop of the second most important diocese in the country by Pope John Paul II. The cardinalatial dignity is connected with Buenos Aires, not with La Plata. Pope Benedict XVI. supported Archbishop Aguer against the Bergoglio-led majority in the Argentine Bishops' Conference , but acted against his successor Francis with too cautious and hesitation, in order to make his intended renewal in the episcopacy really effective.
 
Bergoglio sat in the Conclave in Rome in 2005 and 2013, not Aguer.
 
After Francis became pope, he quickly disassembled the minority led by Aguer, who opposed him as a primate. Only Aguer remained in office, but not a day longer than necessary - which was quite literal.
Victor Manuel Fernandez
On May 24, the archbishop completed his 75th year. According to canon law, he presented his request for resignation to Francis. With a conspicuous haste, Francis accepted it and appointed one of his closest confidants, Titular Archbishop Victor Manuel Fernandez, as his successor. The head of the Church Maximum Leader, thus, not only eliminated the last representative of a traditional understanding of the Church, but also wanted to ensure that the archdiocese was taken by a  Bergoglio team member.
 
What animosities are behind the scenes, illustrates an additional unfriendliness of the Pope to Archbishop Aguer. Francis was not content to emeritize Aguer at the earliest opportunity and immediately appoint a successor, which is also a humiliation for Aguer. Francis did not appoint the archbishop in charge, who is in good health, as diocesan administrator until the inauguration of the successor, as is customary, unless death or health force him to change the bishop. Francis openly expressed his disapproval of Archbishop Aguer. Not a day longer than absolutely necessary, Aguer should have something to say in the archdiocese of La Plata.
 
Francis Monsignor Alberto Bochatey OSA, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of La Plata was appointed diocesan administrator. This was announced by the chargé d'affaires of the Apostolic Nunciature, Msgr. Vincenzo Turturro, on Monday to the Archdiocese.
"Msgr. Bochatay will head the archdiocese of La Plata until the inauguration of Msgr. Victor Fernandez next June 16," said the press service AICA of the Argentine Bishops' Conference.
The appointment of a diocesan administrator for only 14 days when the previous archbishop is in the best health?
 
The Bergoglio related news site Valores Religiosos headlined:
"Aguer confirms that the Holy See wanted a quick change".
Monsignor Aguer had announced last Sunday that the change should be "quick" so that his successor, Fernandez, could already receive the pallium from the Pope's hand on June 29th in Rome.
 
At the same time, the emeritus archbishop expressed his astonishment that the media had already reported exactly for weeks what then became reality in those days: that Francis would immediately emeritize him and would make the papal ghostwriter Fernandez his successor.
 
The Argentine news site CadenaBA wrote critically:
"Pope Francis behaved towards Monser Aguer more after the Old than after the New Testament: according to the motto, "Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth ". He reciprocated with Msgr. Hector Aguer, who had asked him to leave him in office until next September, so that he could celebrate his twenty-year jubilee as Archbishop of La Plata," for which several parishes of the archdiocese were already preparing.
At the end of the Feast of Corpus Christi, which was celebrated in Argentina on June 3, according to Wanderer,  the Syrian Orthodox Archbishop Chrysostom approached the microphone and made his home available to the archbishop," since Monsignor Aguer has no place to go ( his original plan was to move to the Small Seminary of La Plata.)"
 
Behind the scenes, the retirement was obviously far more dramatic than when it became public.
The AICA press release from the Argentine Bishops' Conference said two days later:
"The retired archbishop will live for so long at the archdiocesan curia deems it necessary to find a new home."
In La Plata, not only was an archbishop emeritized and replaced by a towering mediocrity in a demonstratively urgent procedure, but evidently evicted on the spot.
 
Pope Francis' retaliation for revenge has found another victim at La Plata.

Pope Congratulates Liberation Theologian on 90th Birthday




(Rome) Pope Francis has congratulated the Dominican Gustavo Gutierrez, the "father" of Marxist liberation theology, on his 90th birthday.

The Catholic Church Maximum Leader  sent a letter of congratulation to the Peruvian theologian. It is an award bestowed upon the Liberation Theologian for the first time in his life. The relationship with Rome was for a long time very different.

The papal letter is dated May 28th. Gutierrez was born on June 8, 1928 in Lima. With his book published in 1971 Teología de la liberación ("theology of liberation", German edition 1973) he coined the name for a whole movement, whose currents sought an alliance between Christianity and Marxism and some are still looking for.

The first contact between Gutierrez and Pope Francis during the current pontificate was in the Fall of 2013, at the urging of the then CDF Gerhard Müller.. Peru's primate, Juan Luis Cardinal Cipriani Thorne, said then, "Müller is a good theologian, but a bit naive." The Peruvian cardinal could not understand the sudden courting of Gutierrez and liberation theology by Rome. Cipriani Thorne left no doubt that Liberation Theology, a name coined by Gutierrez, has inflicted "great damage" on the Church. He also did not know if Gutierrez had "corrected himself", the cardinal said.



At that time it was not yet known what kind of sympathy Pope Francis had for leftist and even left-radical movements and parties, especially in Latin America.

Gutierrez has been received by Francis three times since autumn 2013, most recently in January at the Apostolic Nunciature in Lima. The congratulatory letter in the text:





Gustavo Gutierrez

Dear brother:
On the occasion of your 90th birthday, I am writing to congratulate you and assure you of this important moment in your life of prayer.
I join in your thanksgiving for God's grace and thank you also for what you have done for the Church and humanity through your theological service and your love for the poor and the outcast of society. Thank you for all efforts and for your form to address the conscience of each individual, so that no one remains indifferent to the drama of poverty and exclusion.
With these wishes, I ask you to continue with your ministry and prayer, bearing witness to the joy of the gospel.
And, please, I ask you to pray for me.
May Jesus bless you and guard the Blessed Virgin.

brotherly,
Francisco

Pope’s Liturgist Says Summorum Pontificum is Fascist





The "Liturgist of the Pope", Andrea Grillo, "takes shots at the new Italian family minister Lorenzo Fontana: The No-Go-Maximum Fontana: He opposes abortion, mass immigration, gay marriage, gender ideology and attends Mass traditional rite.

(Rome) There is a bitter ideological struggle in the Catholic Church. It has been brought into the Church for decades by the side that has appeared in the past under the coat of arms of modernism and progressism. The most recent evidence was provided by the Italian lay theologian Andrea Grillo with a radical attack on Summorum Pontificum and the new Italian Family Minister.

Grillo teaches liturgical sciences at the Pontifical Athenaeum Sant'Anselmo of the Benedictine Order in Rome and is known for his harsh attacks against tradition and everything that stands in the way of actual or supposed "modernization" of the Church. His main enemy for years has been the Motu proprio Summorum Pontificum of Pope Benedict XVI. His repeatedly voiced fears: Bugnini's liturgical revolution under Paul VI. could be reversed. As a matter of fact, Grillo, who of course knows the actual numbers, tries to crush the delicate plant of tradition. The faster, the better, because: "defend the beginning".

Grillo's attack on Cardinal Sarah

A year ago, Grillo insulted Cardinal Robert Sarah, Prefect of the Roman Congregation for Worship and the Sacraments, as "incompetent and inappropriate." In such a rage Grillo addressed the epilogue contributed by Benedict XVI. to Cardinal Sarah’s book, "The Power of Silence.” Grille has nothing to fear from his degrading scolding of Cardinal Sarah. It demanded no courage, but was a health dose. He only followed Pope Francis, who has already humiliated the Cardinal publicly several times.




Andrea Grillo

Grillo is a radical proponent of vernacular languages ​​in the liturgy. Among other things, the "decentralization" of the Missal translations, which Pope Francis granted to individual episcopal conferences, goes back to him. Grillo is eagerly involved in new translations, "which are in direct contradiction to Liturgiam Authenticam's instruction from 2001," said Riccardo Cascioli, editor-in-chief of La Nuova Bussola Quotidana.

A harsh wind has been blowing in Rome since the left side of the Church.l now sees its opportunity. Andrea Grillo, neither related nor confused with the comedian Beppe Grillo, whose Five-Star Movement in Italy has just assumed the governmental responsibility, is among those progressives who have radicalized their language under Francis.

Italy's new family minister as a hope

Andrea Grillo's most recent enemy image is the family and disability minister of the new Italian government from the Five Star Movement and Lega. For the political left and Brussels, the new government is a red cape, and the leftist Catholics are no exception.

Lorenzo Fontana, born in 1980, is a deputy federal president of the Lega and has been a Member of the European Parliament since 2008 and deputy mayor of Verona since July 2017. Since the parliamentary elections last March, the member of the Italian Chamber of Deputies, which voted him Vice-President. He graduated from the University of Padua with a degree in political science and history. The latter he concluded with a work on the Christian civilization.

Fontana is a bearer of hope for a Europe worthy of the name. He is a staunch life-support and a defender of the family and his own identity. His rejection of abortion, mass immigration, "gay marriage", adoption rights for homosexuals and gender ideology make him a major enemy of their ongoing struggle for cultural hegemony for the political left. She sees this threatened by a profiled opponent, a rarity in the mentally lax bourgeoisie, whose main focus seems to be on economic liberalism.

Family Minister = "Fascist", Summorum Pontificum = “Fascism”

Of course, the frontal attacks against Fontana that have been launched in recent days are of course applicable to the new government. A look at German media, and what has been written about Fontana over the past 48 hours, is enough to see how campaigns work. Fontana is the red cloth that has been chosen as the main point of attack. The goal: To shoot as fast as possible, a minister from the new government. For now, however, there seems to be little chance of success.






Grillo's first Twitter entry

Not only the organized gay lobby and left-wing parties attack Fontana. The liturgist Andrea Grillo also contributes to this politically motivated attack against the new government. Grillo makes it a no less ideologically motivated attack against the church. In his sights he has - not very original - Summorum Pontificum. Minister Lorenzo Fontana visits the Holy Mass in the traditional form of the Roman Rite. For politically motivated progressives in the church a no-go-maximum.

Therefore, the Catholic theologian Grillo tweeted against the Catholic family minister:

"One of the requirements for Fontana's fascism is Summorum Pontificum. Memento ... "

To then explain:

"The legitimacy that Summorum Pontificum gives to a reactionary drift of politics must be demonstrated. Not just in Italy. "





Grillo's second entry


The Motu proprio Summorum Pontificum of Pope Benedict XVI. is denounced as Fascism by a Catholic theologian, Ordinary at a Pontifical College in Rome. This unknowable audacity portrays vividly which forces are currently seeking supremacy in the church or have already gained the upper hand. Such a view can only lead to statements such as those Grillos.

Fontana himself responded to the attacks of those days in a letter to the daily Il Tempo:

"The hatred of the elites does not scare me."

The theologian Andrea Grillo is meant as well. His Twitter posts show how deeply a certain decomposition process was brought into the Church, even if a time-honored monastic order like the Benedictines trained Grillo at their Roman college.

Grillo's reputation in Santa Marta "extremely worrisome"

The incident shows, above all, who is well-liked in the current pontificate in Santa Marta. Andrea Grillo was called by Pope Francis in 2016 in the ominous Liturgy Commission, which was established by the head of the church behind the back of the competent Cardinal Prefect Robert Sarah. 

Katholisches.info wrote on January 12, 2017:

"The task of this commission is not to correct the degeneration of the post-conciliar liturgical reform of 1969/1970, which is a serious nuisance in the form of liturgical abuse, including in German-speaking countries. The task of this commission is rather the exact opposite, "said Magister. It is meant to demolish one of the last walls of resistance against the abuse of post-conciliar liturgists and would-be liturgists. It refers to the instruction Liturgiam authenticam, which was issued in 2001 and defines the criteria according to which the obligatory Latin liturgical texts are to be translated into the vernacular languages. "
In March 2017, Francisco Fernandez de la Cigoña described Francis’ members of the Liturgy Commission as "altogether alarming".

Irish Government Minister is a Witch

Edit: if they voted for Sinn Fein, they’ll vote for anything evil in Ireland.

A “WHITE” witch has saluted the Children’s Minister for her interest in the Wicca tradition. Katherine Zappone, an Independent TD, has studied witchcraft and its power to raise the “psychic energy” of participants and create a more “sustainable and peaceful planet”, the Irish Sun has learned.

Children’s Minister Katherine Zappone has a history with witchcraft.

Children’s Minister Katherine Zappone has a history with witchcraft And Patricia Weston, who has written about spells and magic, says the Independent politician is more understanding and compassionate due to her exploration of the pagan tradition.

Pope Promises no “Uniatism” in Relationship to Orthodox Churches

Francis in address to delegation led by Moscow Foreign Minister Archbishop Hilarion: The way of unity is the "only way" - No mission among non-Catholic Christians

Vatican City (kath.net/KAP) Unusually, Pope Francis has reaffirmed his commitment to ecumenism with the Russian Orthodox Church and its Patriarch Kyrill. The path of unity is "the only way that promises us something certain, the path of division will only bring us war and destruction," the Pope said in a short speech to a Russian Orthodox delegation whose text the Vatican published on Saturday.

"The only patriarch in Moscow, in Russia, is yours," Francis assured the delegation. This was under the direction of Metropolitan Hilarion, the foreign chief of the Moscow Patriarchate, who visited Italy from Monday to Wednesday. Shortly before returning to Russia, the group had been received by the Pope.

In his address, Francis gave a clear rejection to any Uniatism, that is, the mission among non-Catholic Christians. If "some Catholic believers - whether lay people, priests or bishops" propagate this, he says: "That does not work anymore, that's over." Of course, the existing Eastern churches unified with Rome, which have arisen in past centuries, must be respected. Today, however, this is no longer a way to unity, according to the Pope.

However, Francis also urged the Russian Orthodox Church to take concrete steps in ecumenism. As examples Francis called for prayer, charitable commitment or pilgrimages. Although one must continue to discuss the theological divergences, one should not wait until at some point, for agreement to exist in all teaching differences.

As a further clear assurance to the Orthodox side, the Pope said: "The Catholic Churches in Russia must not interfere in the internal affairs of the Russian Orthodox Church, as well as in politics." This is his attitude and that of the Holy See, the Pope said. Finally, he called on Orthodox and Catholic believers for mutual prayer for each other. This brings the sisters and brothers of both churches closer together.

Marx Sounds Displeased With Vatican Ruling on Sacrilegious Communions

Congregation of faith writes DBK boss Marx that the document to the Eucharistic approval of Protestant spouses is not ready for publication - UPDATE: kath.net documented original letter copy! - Cardinal Marx is "surprised"

Vatican (kath.net) After the conversation of Cardinal Marx and Cardinal Woelki and some other German bishops in Rome, the controversial document of the German Bishops' Conference for the common Eucharistic reception in confessional marriages. This was announced by the Prefect of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, Archbishop Luis F. Ladaria, DBK Chairman Reinhard Cardinal Marx, in an official letter (in German). The letter is dated May 25th. Archbishop Ladaria explains to Marx that he spoke to Pope Francis on both May 11 and May 24. After the talks, he wants to bring with the "explicit consent" of the Pope a few points to consideration..


First, that "the manifold ecumenical efforts of the German Bishops' Conference" are honored. However, according to the letter, the conversation on 3 May 2018 showed that the text of the Guidance raises a number of issues of major importance. "The Holy Father has therefore come to the conclusion that the document is not ready for publication." Ladaria refers to the document "Going with Christ - On the track of unity. Confessional marriages and joint participation in the Eucharist. A Pastoral Assistance of the German Bishops' Conference ".

The Prefect of the Congregation of the Faith mentions three "essential reasons" for rejection in the letter. The question of the admission to Communion of Protestant Christians in inter-confessional marriages is a topic that touches the faith of the Church and is of relevance to the world Church. In addition, the question has "impact on ecumenical relations with other churches and ecclesial communities", which should not be underestimated. Literally, item 3 is quoted as follows: "The theme concerns the law of the church, especially the interpretation of can. 844 CIC. Because there are unanswered questions in some parts of the Church, the competent dicastery of the Holy See has already been commissioned to clarify these issues promptly at the universal Church level. In particular, it seems appropriate to leave the verdict on the existence of an "urgent and serious emergency" to the diocesan bishop.”

Ladaria expressly pointed out that it was a great concern of the Holy Father "that in the German Bishops' Conference the spirit of episcopal collegiality remains alive".

UPDATE 18.30: Marx reacts!

Cardinal Reinhard Marx is obviously not pleased with the letter from Rome. He informed his spokesman on Monday evening: "The letter of the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith of May 25, 2018 has reached the President of the German Bishops' Conference, Cardinal Reinhard Marx, this evening (June 4, 2018) On 3 May 2018 in Rome, the participating bishops were told that they should find 'as unanimous a rule as possible' in the spirit of ecclesial communion, and the President is therefore surprised that this letter from Rome has arrived even before finding such a unanimous settlement. The President also sees further need for discussion within the German Bishops' Conference, especially in the Permanent Council and the Autumn Assembly, but also with the corresponding Roman Dicasteries and the Holy Father himself. "


UPDATE 17:45: Since now various translations of the letter are circulating, kath.net documents the letter of Archbishop Ladaria / Congregation of the Faith, to the DBK Chairman Cardinal Marx for DBK handout in dt. Original language.

Italian Family Minister: “The Family is Under Attack. They Want to Dominate Us and Cancel Our People”

Edit; we were sent this link by a twitter follower. Here is a google translate with some editing. We don’t think that Corriere Della Sera is too happy with this heroic Catholic’s point of view.

"The natural family is under attack. They want to dominate us and cancel our people." The new minister for the Family and Disability, Lorenzo Fontana declared this in 2016, as stated on his website.

[Corriere Della Sera] At the conference of the Pro Vita Onlus association held in Verona, he explained that "on the one hand the weakening of the family and the fight for gay marriage and the teaching of gender theory in schools, on the other the mass immigration that we undergo and the simultaneous emigration of our young people abroad. These are all related and interdependent issues, because these factors aim to erase our community and our traditions. The risk is the cancellation of our people.” The example to follow is Russia: "If thirty years ago Russia, under the Communist, materialistic and internationalist yoke, was the farthest imaginable from the ideas of identity and defense of the family and tradition, but today it is the model for those who believe in an identity model of society.”

The 38-year-old minister of the new government of the League and Movement 5 Stars, former vice-secretary of the Northern League who describes himself as "Veronese and Catholic" on Twitter, in March 2017 defined "the order of the Court of Appeal of Trento on double paternity (a law which recognizes that a child can have two fathers), a defeat for society ».

At the end of May he participated in the March for the Life of Rome to support the abrogation of the law 194 on abortion with the cry of "abortion is the leading cause of femicide in the world".

A graduate in Political Science, he particularly cares about the demographic theme: "Politics must take care of the family, we can not waste any more time. Children are the investment of the future. Every year it is as if we lost a city the size of Padua, the demographic decline is comparable to that caused between 1918 and 1920 by Spanish fever,” he said in an interview. In January, again on the same subject, the former prime minister, Paolo Gentiloni, commented: "For the outgoing Council President, the aging Europe needs migrants; for us, aging Europe needs to generate new children".

Cardinal Woelki on the Eucharist, “This is about life and death”

The Cologne Cardinal Rainer Maria Woelki has defended the Holy Eucharist at the Corpus Christi Festival with dramatic words - In Essen Bishop Overbeck wanted to "sell" the giving of the Eucharist to Protestants with a psychological trick

Cologne (kath.net) The Cologne Cardinal Rainer Maria Woelki defended the Holy Eucharist with dramatic words on Thursday following the pontifical ministry on Corpus Christi, and also addressed the debate on Protestant spouses receiving Communion. Woelki said, "This is about life and death, it's about death and resurrection, it's about eternal life, it's about Christ, it's about His Church and it's all about what's in it. Therefore, we must fight for it and seek the right way, not some way, but the way of the Lord which He shows us, and He alone is the way, the truth, and the life." The Cologne Cardinal again rejected allegations that he had sent the letter to Rome behind the back of Cardinal Marx: "I say with the Holy Scriptures: I have appeared openly and freely and have written this and meant what was written and I would say it once again: we in Germany do not live on an island of the blessed, we are not a national church.” At the end of his speech, Woelki received great applause from the faithful in Cologne Cathedral.

In Essen, however, the local bishop Franz-Josef Overbeck had subtly pleaded for the release of the Eucharist to Protestants. Thus, the bishop claimed without proof, that Pope John Paul II had suggested a limited opening of Communion. According to Overbeck, there is currently no general admission of Protestant Christians to Communion. But then the bishop of Essen tried to verbally sell the release with a psychological trick. So he said that the common communion is possible, if in a marriage "salvation is at stake". But he wants a "theologically responsible solution.”  Interesting in the context of the German Eucharist dispute is the language of its own press office, which spoke of "inferior bishops" in connection with the 7 bishops who turned to Rome.

Pope Appoints Kissing Bishop to La Plata

The following was reported by Religion Digital.  It's hardly surprising, but one can't help but be dismayed that Bergoglio's ghost writer and the author of a book on kissing is going to be given one of the most important sees in Argentina. He continues to stack the deck with his evil cronies. In the old days, maybe the black nobility would have intervened by now and disposed of him somehow, now that he's apparently raising Bishops with concubines to the cardinalatial purple.

The Pope has accepted the resignation of his enemy, Monsignor Héctor Aguer. He turned 75 years old about 10 days ago according to journalist and art historian, , who will be replaced by Victor Manuel Fernández, about whom he says:

"The most famous kiss was given by a bishop like you, Judas"

Ferández is 55 years old, and currently holds the titular archdiocese of Tiburnia.  He is sure to be around for many years to persecute the Church from within and with impunity.
 
The information was unveiled this morning simultaneously in Rome and Buenos Aires. Here was the charge of business of the apostolic nunciature, Monsignor Vincenzo Turturro, through the agency AICA.
 
Monsignor Víctor Fernández will be the eighth archbishop of La Plata and the tenth diocesan of the Episcopal see of La Plata.
 
Biographical information of Mons. Dr. Víctor Manuel Fernández

He was born on July 18, 1962 in Alcira Gigena, a town in the department of Río Cuarto, province of Córdoba, and was ordained a priest in his hometown, diocese of Villa de la Concepcion del Río Cuarto, on August 15, 1986.

He graduated in Theology with a biblical specialization from the Pontifical Gregorian University, in Rome, in 1988, and a doctorate in Theology from the Faculty of Theology of the Pontifical Catholic University of Argentina Santa Maria de los Buenos Aires (UCA) in 1990.

#Procesja Connects Millions of Poles for Corpus Christi on Social Media

Polish Catholic Bishops' Conference: "Let's get a picture in the social media of how we are experiencing the Feast of Corpus Christi in our countries"
Poland (kath.net) "Let's make a picture of how we experience the Corpus Christi feast in our countries in social media. Share pictures and films that we tag with the hashtag #Procession." The speaker of the Polish Bishops' Conference, Rev. Pavel Rytel-Andrianik, said Friday. Last year, this initiative brought together 5 million Poles. "I hope that this will be the case again," said. Rytel-Andrianik. "If you want to see how the processions in Poland present themselves, please state #Procesja (Procession)." John Paul II said that faith will be strengthened if it is passed on  "- recalls the bishop's spokesman sharing the experience of faith on Facebook and Twitter. "Corpus Christi is a public testimony of our faith, and we can do that on social media as well, by sharing images and movies with the #procession hashtag, and we get a picture speaking to how we experience this festival in our country," stressed Rev. Pavel Rytel-Andrianik.

The spokesman of the Polish Bishops' Conference says that Corpus Christi is the moment in which Catholics come in processions on streets of the cities to worship Jesus and meditate on the mystery of the presence of Jesus in the Holy of Holies. "This is not a demonstration, but the great prayer of the whole Church that unites many people who come to the community to worship Jesus and invite him to their daily lives. After all, the processions pass by our living, working and entertainment places. So we can say that the feast of Corpus Christi should emphasize the presence of God in all our affairs. We can also share this experience on social media by releasing images and films with the hashtag #Procession during Corpus Christi and the Octave of this celebration "- emphasizes Rev. Rytel-Andrianik.

He added that previous initiatives of this kind have been very popular on the social media and have shown that there is a need among their users to share the experience of the faith. "One very important aspect of such initiatives is the fact that we are able to participate in important religious events by publishing pictures or films, such as those taken by smartphone. Moreover, those who for various reasons can not participate in processions in person, can connect spiritually"- says the bishop's spokesman.

Muslims Attacking Dogs With Knives a Growing Phenomenon



Edit: David Berger is a former instructor of Scholastic Theology in the Archdiocese of Cologne and the Academy of Saint Thomas in Rome. He was among those who helped bring down the best religion website in Europe, if not the world. Kreuz.net was legendary, and it also exposed Berger. Since then, however, Berger has been trying to use his journalistic and philosophical powers for good and make up for his past. He was once a frequent lecturer on the traditionalist circuit at various “castles and crypts.”  

Berger’s bio: 
David Berger (born 1968) was a PhD (Dr. phil.) and habilitated (Dr. theol.) Professor for many years in the Vatican. 2010 Outing: It happened on the publication of the book “Die Heilige Schein” about his work in the Vatican as a homosexual man. [He tried to make traditionalists look bad, and this characterization isn’t quite accurate. Kreuznet published his Facebook and dating site activity. That’s what really happened.] Then he worked for two years chief editor of a gay magazine, he was expelled for being too openly critical of Islam.  Since 2016 he has been a blogger at (philosophia-perennis) and freelance journalist (inter-alia for Die Zeit, Junge Freiheit, The European). His bibliography of academic writings comprise about 1,000 titles. July 24, 2017



Muslims hate dogs.

(David Berger) In the small Dutch village of Schiedam near Rotterdam, there has been a kind of knife attack, which are so far rare in Europe, but could soon spread in the context of Islamization.

When police officers entered the apartment of a 26-year-old Syrian with the police dog, he - armed with a large knife and an ax - immediately started stabbing the dog. He repeatedly shouted "Allahu Akbar".

Since the police could not stop the escalation by other means, they shot the man. He was injured and taken to hospital. The dog succumbed to his injuries.

On the hatred of dogs motivated by Islam:

"Unclean": Brutal attacks on dogs and dog owners now also in Europe (the article follows this story)

Yesterday there was an incident in Germany with a knife man, the day before yesterday, a fanatical Muslim in Liege, Belgium, killed two policemen and a pedestrian. The "Islamic State" committed itself to the act and praised the murderers as "Soldiers of the Caliphate".

An ex-policeman and specialist in Islamist terror when asked about the extreme uptick of the already numerous knife attacks in recent days, shrugged to PP: "What do you want? It's Ramadan! "


Unclean

(David Berger) From Pakistan (see video at the end of the text) and other countries dominated by Islam, brutal cruelty to animals has been known to us for a long time, especially when it comes to dogs, even though the major media in this country are largely silent.

In the process, the fatwa, according to which only black dogs are to be killed, was exceeded on a regular basis - and extended to all dogs.

More and more frequently in Europe there are Islamic motivated acts of violence against dogs and their owners.

So reports - in addition to the newspaper Kronen Zeitung- the Austrian magazine "Wochenblick" recently:

"A 54-year-old dog owner in Vienna was knocked down in front of her garden gate by a Muslim Somali woman. The Viennese’s dog had approached her.

Ingrid T. now has a complicated knee fracture and gets implants. "The animals are impure," said the Somali woman according to media reports.

The incident occurred in a completely harmless situation: The Viennese, Ingrid T. - according to   Wochenschau - "was gossiping with a neighbor at the garden gate. One of her dogs sat next to her, the other marched towards her parents' house. When a young woman approached with a veil, she wanted to get her dog back.

“She knew that Muslims do not like dogs. But immediately the Viennese woman was attacked. Three men had to tear the Somali woman away from the Viennese woman. The husband of the attacker is said to have said:

"We do not want dogs that are dirty".

In fact, there are clear rules for dog ownership in Islam. For example, dogs in the house and contact with the dog's saliva are completely taboo. Muslims who go to prayer and come into contact with a dog must repeat the ritual washing. Incidentally, there are about 60,000 officially registered dogs in Vienna.

The number of those unreported is likely to be higher. Conflicts are therefore inevitable. In cities in many countries with a high Muslim populations, there are more and more similar and other incidents.”

JouWatch reported a few weeks ago about an action in Manchester: "’This area is home to a large Muslim community. Show respect for us and our children and limit the presence of dogs in public,’ said the Muslim public-health campaign group, which distributed leaflets in the English city of Manchester calling for a public ban on dogs.”

Bolivian Bishop Denies “Slanders” He Has a Family

Edit: the retired communist bishop who doesn’t always wear clerics in public is also close friend of Evo Morales, the Marxist leader of Bolivia. Obviously, this is a priest who’s very close to the people! Certainly he’s too close to the wrong people!

Watch out Ed Pentin, OnePeterFive and Adlante de Fe! You’re about to get a dose of #Francismercy

[katholisches.de] It is said that Bolivian bishop Toribio Ticona Porco (81), to be appointed cardinal at the end of June, has a family of his own with wife and children. "Due to a false accusation that has been spread in some media regarding my private life, my job is to clarify that the contents of this message are not true," Ticona Porco said in a statement published  by the Bishops' Conference of Bolivia on Tuesday evening (local time ). He described the alleged slander as an attack on Pope Francis: "These are attacks that come from sources that are known for their hostile attitude towards the Holy Father," said Ticona Porco.

He was ready to defend his honor in all necessary instances, added the bishop. The rumors that have now spread by the blog "Adelante la fe" and the Argentine TV show "El compromiso del laico" are not new and have been previously exposed as simple slander, said the former bishop of Corocoro. He is one of the 14 churchmen whose appointment to Cardinal Pope Francis had recently announced for June 28th.




Toribio Ticona Porco, 81, comes from an indigenous family in the highlands of Bolivia and, before becoming a priest, worked as a shoeshine boy, in a beer tavern and in the Potosí mines for the livelihoods of his parents and siblings. Born in 1937 in Atocha, Ticona got to know the harsh everyday life in the southern Bolivian mining region. After studying - including in Brussels - he kept his proximity to the region and the people: first as a priest, then as Auxiliary Bishop in Potosi, finally, from 1992, as Bishop of Corocoro. For several years he also served as mayor of the city of Chacarillas.

At that time, five diocesan priests and ten religious priests worked on an area of ​​29,000 square kilometers. During his 20 years as a chief shepherd, Ticona considered it a matter of honor to learn all other languages ​​of his church district besides Spanish and Quechua. Bolivia's President Evo Morales, with whom the New Cardinal enjoys a personal friendship, announced this week that he would accompany Ticona Porco to the Vatican at the end of June. (Rom / KNA)

Marxist University in Nicaragua Mortared

Edit: the Sandinistas have been accused lately of trying to fan discontent with the standing government by firing at crowds. Perhaps the Sandinistas are mortaring their fellow traveler friends?

[America] Since protests directed at the Sandinista government in Nicaragua began in April, the Jesuit-run University of Central America has been a hub of student activism and, as a result, a target of violence. On Sunday, Father Jose Alberto Idiaquez, S.J., the rector of U.C.A., condemned the latest attack on his university as government-sponsored.
In a statement addressed to the Nicaraguan people, Father Idiaquez announced that U.C.A.’s campus in Nicaragua’s capital city of Managua was attacked on May 27 at 12:45 a.m. by a group of masked men in vans. The attackers shot a mortar at two campus guards.
Since protests directed at the Sandinista government in Nicaragua began in April, the Jesuit-run University of Central America has been a a target of violence.
“Although they did not manage to hurt or kill our watchmen, this was their intent, based on the charge of gunpowder used and the nearness of the shot,” Father Idiaquez said in his statement.
