Fr. Edward Leen against the Marxists…
A Brief Catholic Critique of Communism
Early protagonists of Communism: Vladimir Lenin, Friedrich Engels, Karl Marx
In 1939, the magnificent Irish Catholic writer Fr. Edward Leen (1885-1944) published a book entitled The Church before Pilate. Released at a critical moment in history, it addresses the relations between the Catholic Church and the secular authority. At only 78 pages, it is a short read and highly recommended.
In Chapter 2 of The Church before Pilate, the author devotes a subsection to the topic of Communism. He offers a sobering analysis of the despicable, materialistic, godless system introduced by Karl Marx (1818-1883), identifying it as “the most uncompromising enemy of Catholicity”, indeed “the most thorough expression of the partial, incomplete and somewhat illogical revolts that have marked the course of Christianity from the first years of the Christian era.”… READ MORE
Alas, not the “Fire & Brimstone Award”…
Mexican Novus Ordo Bishop receives Award for Homo Rights Activism
Mr. José Raúl Vera López, O.P., is the former Novus Ordo bishop of Saltillo, Mexico. He retired only this past November, having originally been appointed to this post on Dec. 30, 1999, by “Saint” John Paul II of unhappy memory. Lopez is a prime product of the Novus Ordo religion and comes with approval from the highest echelons, having been (invalidly) ordained a priest by false pope Paul VI himself in 1975 and (likewise invalidly) consecrated a bishop by false pope John Paul II in 1988.… READ MORE

Priest in 1955: Apocalypse indicates False Prophet will be Fake Pope while Papal Chair is Vacant and Church Appears Destroyed
For this find, we are indebted to Resignationist blogger Ann Barnhardt, who published an abridged excerpt of the same passage yesterday.
In 1955, Fr. Herman Kramer (1884-1976), a diocesan priest in Sioux City, Iowa, published a work called The Book of Destiny, which is an explanation of the Apocalypse, the last book of the Holy Bible (otherwise known as Revelation).
The Book of Destiny bears a nihil obstat and imprimatur given on Jan. 26, 1956. This official diocesan approval does not guarantee that the book is free from error, only that anything proposed in it does not contradict the Catholic Faith — the book is therefore safe for a Catholic to read.… READ MORE

Hindu Eco-Activist: Francis’ Laudato Si Encyclical reads like Sacred Text of Hinduism
We are indebted to Dr. Jules Gomes for alerting us to this find.
Chances are you haven’t heard of Vandana Shiva, and that’s probably a good thing. The 68-year old Indian woman is a “physicist, ecofeminist, philosopher, activist, and author”, according to the United Nations Environment Programme.
With that kind of résumé, it is no wonder that “Pope” Francis thought she would make for a good addition to his much-advertised Economy of Francesco conference, a three-day “make the world a better place” event that was originally going to be held in Assisi, Italy, in March of this year, but that now took place online Nov.… READ MORE

United Nations in the Classroom: Bergoglio’s “Global Compact on Education” Examined
No matter what problems rattle our globe, the man with all the answers is “Pope” Francis (Jorge Bergoglio). That, at least, is what he thinks, and he behaves accordingly.
On Sep. 12, 2019, the Vatican had announced a forthcoming initiative to be spearheaded by Bergoglio “to shape the future of humanity by forming mature individuals who can overcome division and care for our common home”. A conference to sign the so-called “Global Compact on Education” was originally set to occur on May 14, 2020, but due to the Coronavirus lockdowns, the event was postponed and finally took place in curtailed and improvised fashion on Oct.… READ MORE

French Socialist Leader applauds Encyclical Fratelli Tutti
After the Freemasonic Grand Orient Lodge of Spain gave its endorsement, another enemy of Roman Catholicism has voiced his support for “Pope” Francis’ new encyclical Fratelli Tutti, on human fraternity and social friendship.
We are talking about Jean-Luc Mélenchon, the founder and current leader of the French socialist political movement La France Insoumise (“Insubordinate France”), which enjoys the support of the French Communist Party.
Melenchon sings the praises of the encyclical in an article he penned for the French Novus Ordo magazine La Vie, which was published Oct.… READ MORE

Francis’ Encyclical Fratelli Tutti: The Highlights
NOTE: For the full text and reactions to the document, as well as analyses and commentary, please access our special coverage page at the following link:
If one had to summarize Francis’ lengthy encyclical Fratelli Tutti in one single sentence, perhaps it would be: Humanity, save thyself! In 287 paragraphs, God is at best an afterthought, and man’s supernatural destiny is all but ignored. That for which we were actually created (the Beatific Vision) and the way to attain it (by means of sanctifying grace through Faith, hope, and charity, in union with the Ark of Salvation, the Roman Catholic Church), are not even hinted at.… READ MORE
The ‘Pontifical Academy for Black Lives Matter’
The useless so-called Pontifical Academy for Life, no stranger to controversy, sent out a tweet today showing a photoshopped image of Michelangelo’s famous Pietà sculpture — Our Lady on Mount Calvary holding the Body of her Divine Son after It was taken down from the Cross — with the skin color of the Body of Our Lord changed to black:
The caption provided by the Vatican academy is: “An image that is worth a speech.” The actual tweet can be accessed here.
Let’s be clear: Of course our Blessed Lord Jesus Christ redeemed the entire human race, people of any and all colors.… READ MORE

The Morality of Voting:
Is it Permissible to Vote for the Lesser of two Evils?
This is not a political post. It’s a post about the Catholic position as regards voting in democratic elections, which falls within the purview of the Church’s moral theology. The reason for publishing this post is to instruct Catholics who are not sufficiently familiar with the topic so as to clarify what is often misunderstood, remove doubt and uncertainty, and ease consciences.
First, let’s look at a brief general overview.
In their magnificent 2-vol. summary of Catholic morality, the Dominican Fathers John McHugh and Charles Callan included a succinct treatment of voting, which we quote below.… READ MORE

Assessing Taylor Marshall’s Infiltration:
Bold Exposé or Controlled Opposition?
Resisting Francis to his face? On May 15, 2019, Dr. Taylor Marshall met “Pope” Francis in Rome at a general audience, at which time he gave him the first (signed) copy of Infiltration, days before its official release. Later, when discussing the meeting in a video, Marshall said, “People on social media have attacked me on both sides as being too nice to the Pope, or too mean to the Pope…” This is precisely the confusion one expects from the recognize-and-resist position he espouses — opposition to the “Holy Father”, but a cordial and ultimately insipid opposition.… READ MORE

Marx meets Marx: “Archbishop” of Munich poses with Statue of Founder of Communism
The German city of Trier recently put up a statue of Karl Marx (1818-1883), the founder of Communism.
Trier is the birthplace of this notorious revolutionary, whose erroneous philosophy and dangerous, anti-Catholic ideology is historically responsible for the deaths of roughly 100 million people in the world. (To get any idea of how many dead bodies that is, look at the one million dots on this page and mentally multiply it by 100 — if you can.) Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s The Gulag Archipelago tells the horrific inside story of Soviet Communism, which would have been impossible without Karl Marx first delivering the ideological blueprint.… READ MORE

Bergoglio and the Pro$perity Gospel:

Prosperity theology (sometimes referred to as the prosperity gospel, the health-and-wealth gospel, the gospel of success, or seed faith) is a religious belief among some Protestant Christians that financial blessing and physical well-being are always the will of God for them, and that faith, positive speech, and donations to religious causes will increase one’s material wealth.

Christ and the Poor: Francis brazenly distorts Gospel Reading for Monday in Holy Week
His pace of apostasy is exhausting: The Antipope on April 6, 2020
Life for “Pope” Francis is not easy: Every time he preaches, he has to find a way to read his ideological talking points into the Scripture readings of the day. This becomes especially challenging when the Gospel text directly contradicts the Bergoglian agenda.
Such a day was today, April 6, 2020. It is Monday in Holy Week, and the Gospel passage for the day was the beautiful story of St.… READ MORE
