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 ChurchMilitant.com 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 ChurchMilitant.com.”
   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!

[Gloria.tv] 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 LaPresse.ca.
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)
