Improvement from last year, but…

You may recall that last year the Vatican’s Christmas nativity scene was basically a harrowing homo-erotic horror show. Compared to that, virtually anything is an improvement.

This year, the powers that be in the Modernist Unholy See are presenting a nativity scene made entirely of sand, sculpted by the professional team of Rich Varano, right in St. Peter’s Square. The unveiling and inauguration took place today, and Vatican News has released a video of the entire ceremony:

In case you don’t care to watch the entire 75-minute video, Rome Reports has summarized the event in a brief clip:

The core of this year’s nativity scene, pictured at the top of this post, is odd.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Dear readers, the beautiful feast of the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ is once again upon us, and it is entirely due to the grace and goodness of Almighty God that we are permitted to celebrate it.

Approximately 700 years before the Birth of Jesus Christ, the prophet Isaias foretold that God Himself would come and save His people:

Say to the fainthearted: Take courage, and fear not: behold your God will bring the revenge of recompense: God himself will come and will save you.

A Francis Christmas:
Roman Curia gets its annual Spanking

It’s that time of the year again!

On Dec. 21, the members of the Roman Curia were gathered in the Clementine Hall of the Apostolic Palace to receive what used to be called the Pope’s annual Christmas greetings. While Jorge Bergoglio has occupied the Vatican structures under the stage name “Pope Francis”, however, it is more appropriate to speak of a yearly Christmas spanking, at least since 2014. While most people around this time of year typically wish their fellow men blessings of grace, joy, and peace, Francis knows how to throw a monkey-wrench into the most quiet and contemplative season of the year.

Repulsive, bizarre, frightening. These are adjectives one should not associate with the most beautiful event in history (together with Christ’s Passion and Resurrection), but the Vatican under “Pope” Francis entices people to do exactly that.

On December 7, Vatican City solemnly inaugurated its Christmas tree and Nativity scene at St.

 In Christmas Address to Curia, Francis slams “Malicious Resistance” that accuses others and hides behind Traditions!

Well, folks, it looks like the dubia supporters have gotten their answer. Today, Dec. 22, 2016, Francis gave his annual Christmas address to the Roman Curia, which in the past had been loaded with fireworks. So too this time around.

The main focus of this year’s address was the ongoing reform of the Roman Curia, which he likened to a “surgical operation”. He listed twelve principles that guide his reworking of the Vatican apparatus: individualism; pastoral concern; missionary spirit; clear organization; improved functioning; modernization; sobriety; subsidiarity; synodality; catholicity; professionalism; and gradualism.
