Cardinal McCarrick and the Last Novus Gasp – On The Remnant Newspaper –
Bill McGurn of The Wall Street Journal compares the McCarrick situation to a watershed moment akin to the Reformation:
A reform serious and meaningful must emerge from it, or must assuredly the Church will split. In this process, let us thank God and His Providence for the First Amendment, which will protect the laity in doing what we need to do to rid ourselves from such evil men and their evil ways.
CORRECTION: The USCCB meeting in Baltimore is Nov. 12–15, 2018.
It is now just a little more than 100 days before the U.S. bishops gather for their next big collective meeting — this one in Baltimore. You’ll remember the last one in Fort Lauderdale where the topic came up of slamming the faithful with canonical penalties for supporting the nation’s immigration laws.

These settlements, for $100,000 and $80,000, were paid by the Dioceses of Trenton, Metuchen, and Newark in 2004 and 2006 to two men who had been abused by McCarrick while they were in the seminary as well as after they had become priests.

The Real Face Of The Left Coming To A City Near You – On You Tube
Pro-life Chilean congressman Jose Antonio Kast suffered a violent mob assault earlier this week as he was attempting to enter an auditorium as a guest speaker at the University Arturo Prat in the Chilean city of Iquique.
The ordeal lasted for close to 30 minutes before the local police arrived wearing riot gear to disperse the mob. Much of the assault was captured on video and can be seen below.
From the letter to the Hebrews 12:14-29 You have come to the mountain of the living God
Strive for peace with all men, and for that holiness without which no one can see the Lord. See to it that no man falls away from the grace of God; that no bitter root springs up through which many may become defiled; that there be among you no fornicator or godless person like Esau, who sold his birthright for a meal. You know that afterward he wanted to inherit his father’s blessing, but he was rejected because he had no opportunity to alter his choice, even though he sought the blessing with tears.
You have not drawn near to an untouchable mountain and a blazing fire, nor gloomy darkness and storm and trumpet blast, nor a voice speaking words such that those who heard begged that they be not addressed to them, for they could not bear to hear the command: “If even an animal touches the mountain, it must be stoned to death.” Indeed, so fearful was the spectacle that Moses said, “I am terrified and trembling.”
No, you have drawn near to Mount Zion and the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to myriads of angels in festal gathering, to the assembly of the firstborn enrolled in heaven, to God the judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood which speaks more eloquently than that of Abel.
Do not refuse to hear him who speaks. For if the Israelites did not escape punishment when they refused to listen as God spoke to them on earth, how much greater punishment will be ours if we turn away from him who speaks from heaven! His voice then shook the earth, but now he has promised, “I will once more shake not only earth but heaven!” And that “once more” shows that shaken, created things will pass away, so that only what is unshaken may remain.
Wherefore, we who are receiving the unshakable kingdom should hold fast to God’s grace, through which we may offer worship acceptable to him in reverence and awe. For our God is a consuming fire.
From a treatise on John by Saint Augustine, bishop The perfection of love
Dear brethren, the Lord has marked out for us the fullness of love that we ought to have for each other. He tells us: No one has greater love than the man who lays down his life for his friends. In these words, the Lord tells us what the perfect love we should have for one another involves. John, the evangelist who recorded them, draws the conclusion in one of his letters: As Christ laid down his life for us, so we too ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. We should indeed love one another as he loved us, he who laid down his life for us.
This is surely what we read in the Proverbs of Solomon: If you sit down to eat at the table of a ruler, observe carefully what is set before you; then stretch out your hand, knowing that you must provide the same kind of meal yourself. What is this ruler’s table if not the one at which we receive the body and blood of him who laid down his life for us? What does it mean to sit at this table if not to approach it with humility? What does it mean to observe carefully what is set before you if not to meditate devoutly on so great a gift? What does it mean to stretch out one’s hand, knowing that one must provide the same kind of meal oneself, if not what I have just said: as Christ laid down his life for us, so we in our turn ought to lay down our lives for our brothers? This is what the apostle Paul said: Christ suffered for us, leaving us an example, that we might follow in his footsteps.
This is what is meant by providing “the same kind of meal.” This is what the blessed martyrs did with such burning love. If we are to give true meaning to our celebration of their memorials, to our approaching the Lord’s table in the very banquet at which they were fed, we must, like them, provide “the same kind of meal.”
At this table of the Lord we do not commemorate the martyrs in the same way as we commemorate others who rest in peace. We do not pray for the martyrs as we pray for those others, rather, they pray for us, that we may follow in his footsteps. They practiced the perfect love of which the Lord said there could be none greater. They provided “the same kind of meal” as they had themselves received at the Lord’s table. This must not be understood as saying that we can be the Lord’s equals by bearing witness to him to the extent of shedding our blood. He had the power of laying down his life; we by contrast cannot choose the length of our lives, and we die even if it is against our will. He, by dying, destroyed death in himself; we are freed from death only in his death. His body did not see corruption; our body will see corruption and only then be clothed through him in incorruption at the end of the world. He needed no help from us in saving us; without him we can do nothing. He gave himself to us as the vine to the branches; apart from him we cannot have life.
Finally, even if brothers die for brothers, yet no martyr by shedding his blood brings forgiveness for the sins of his brothers, as Christ brought forgiveness to us. In this he gave us, not an example to imitate but a reason for rejoicing. Inasmuch, then, as they shed their blood for their brothers, the martyrs provided “the same kind of meal” as they had received at the Lord’s table. Let us then love one another as Christ also loved us and gave himself up for us.
What is the end game of the LGBT movement ? Is their objective equal rights , is their objective to change Catholic teachings, to eradicate Christian moral and beliefs, to re-order society ? What is their end game?
From my studies, in traditional Catholic Social teachings and Sacred Scripture as it relates to the current social phenomenon of the same sex relationships’ full court press push into society, politics, the corporate world and the religious world it is found that it is much much more than basic acceptance they seek, nor just the redefinition of sin. Number one, it has high level architects, mid-level implementers, and powerfully placed enablers. Secondly, or what should rightly be put up front , is that these people of this movement are only the initial marines on the ground preparing the way for what is to come , for something all-together different
Let us remember that in the journey through the 40 days in the dessert we are reliving this lent (replicating the 40 years of exile of the peoples of the former covenant to which we, of the new Jerusalem , inherited ) our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was brought up to the top of the parapet above the Temple over-looking the kingdoms of the world, which the enemy of the world , who is also the prince of this world, satan himself, offered Christ our Lord dominion over all of that which is already his. The enemy just wanted homage it is written, but homage as what ? as a colleague? – or as a fellow-creator to be ! which he could never be! Once completely rejected and spurned by Jesus Christ the King he swore what ? He whom could not create a bird nor even a single bee claimed that one day he would create something and everyone would worship his creation (essentially the coming to power of the anti-Christ) . What is his creation ? His newly arrived creation is the Transvestite with new and exalted rights, an “IT”. Not just any rights, but through the striving and marine like work of the aberosexual martyrs, rights ABOVE heterosexuals and to be globally accepted as a higher form of life. This higher form of creation is seen as such by the growing power of the sects of the eastern mystery religions of polytheism and pantheism. Its followers kneel to androgyny. As their teachings follow, “I am the virgin and the whore in one”, I am the dark and the light”, I am the bad and yet I am the good”….and on and on.
“IT” will rise to power quickly. You have seen the first two elected transvestite politicians break ground in the United States. It will now soon seek a seat at the United Nations and begin its climb to power. It will meet all the definitions of a crowd pleaser. People will die fighting for “IT” , possibly even wars, and it will meet all the definitions of the son of perdition. And then it will begin …..as we enter this beginning of the end of times , this is what is at stake in the battle of the two towers

From an Easter letter by Saint Athanasius, bishop – The paschal sacrament brings together in unity of faith those physically separated from each other
Brethren, how fine a thing it is to move from festival to festival, from prayer to prayer, from holy day to holy day. The time is now at hand when we enter on a new beginning: the proclamation of the blessed Passover, in which the Lord was sacrificed. We feed as on the food of life, we constantly refresh our souls with his precious blood, as from a fountain. Yet we are always thirsting, burning to be satisfied. But he himself is present for those who thirst and in his goodness invites them to the feast day. Our Savior repeats his words: If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink.
He quenched the thirst not only of those who came to him then. Whenever anyone seeks him he is freely admitted to the presence of the Savior. The grace of the feast is not restricted to one occasion. Its rays of glory never set. It is always at hand to enlighten the mind of those who desire it. Its power is always there for those whose minds have been enlightened and who meditate day and night on the holy Scriptures, like the one who is called blessed in the holy psalm: Blessed is the man who has not followed the counsel of the wicked, or stood where sinners stand, or sat in the seat of the scornful, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night.
Moreover, my friends, the God who first established this feast for us allows us to celebrate it each year. He who gave up his Son to death for our salvation, from the same motive gives us this feast, which is commemorated every year. This feast guides us through the trials that meet us in this world. God now gives us the joy of salvation that shines out from this feast, as he brings us together to form one assembly, uniting us all in spirit in every place, allowing us to pray together and to offer common thanksgiving, as is our duty on the feast. Such is the wonder of his love: he gathers to this feast those who are far apart, and brings together in unity of faith those who may be physically separated from each other.
Declan O’Byrne’s news from Ireland at 2:00pm on Sundays (90.7FM In NY and Northern NJ) has become a serious concern to both us and our extended family and friends
In this last show, this past Sunday, he went on an anti-Catholic tirade in a very lengthy support of Mrs. Mary McAleese as if she was either his mother or some form of a new Saint. Mrs. McAleese, as you folks I am sure know well, is not only the former President of Ireland but an apostate Catholic. She opposes our Church’s teaching on homosexuality , most likely due to her outspoken pro-sodomite son. She tells European Catholics the Church is wrong on its teachings and once adopting this position, as we have seen elsewhere, one naturally gravitates towards cherry picking other Church teachings each person’s personal interpretation and emotions feels at odds with today. She opposes celibate male Priesthood and believes Priests should also be Priestesses , married, and or homosexual. She opposes our Church’s teaching on contraception which gave rise the legalization of abortion
As for the murder of the unborn, Declan O’Byrne, continued to rave on as to Mrs. McAleese support of Ireland’s referendum on the 8th Amendment overrun attempt, while pro-life Irish Catholics are largely rejecting the Government’s plan for a UK-style abortion regime in Ireland. This former President of Ireland, it is believed, has animosity towards our Roman Catholic Church due to family members being abused by a Priest, Father Malachy Finnegan, in her northern Ireland homeland.
My wife and I have this newsblog to which we network with both other Catholic apostolates and over a thousand different connected souls to which we intend to inform not only of this situation but other similar outrageous predicaments to which everyday Catholics can have an impact. In today’s world unlike the Catholic world of years ago only large public outcry has any semblance of a substantial impact. There are many people that to this day gather round the radio to listen to the news from Ireland on Sundays and this version of the news corrupts and mis-forms the youth of the tri-state area. Mrs. McAlesse was also just recently ‘officially’ banned in sanctions by the Vatican from speaking in Rome at a Women’s Day Conference due to her apostate anti-Catholic views which was also not mentioned.
These highly subjective ant-Catholic news items become a presentation of WFUV views and by extension the Jesuit Catholic University of Fordham in the Bronx and its extended NYC locations representing same and Irish people & Irish American people in general and are more over are false and highly offensive – Please help to correct this by letting as many people as possible know of this tragic situation going on at Fordham University, WFUV and the beloved Ceol na nGael program which we may have to abandon and urge other Irish Catholics to do same as part of their after Mass Sundays sacrifice.
Here are some stories substantiating Mrs. McAleese anti-Catholic views if you had not already known of her opposition to Catholicism

From a sermon by Saint Leo the Great, pope The virtue of charity
In the gospel of John the Lord says: In this will all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love for each other. In a letter of the same apostle we read: Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God; he who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
The faithful should therefore enter into themselves and make a true judgment on their attitudes of mind and heart. If they find some store of love’s fruit in their hearts, they must not doubt God’s presence within them. If they would increase their capacity to receive so great a guest, they should practice greater generosity in doing good, with persevering charity.
If God is love, charity should know no limit, for God cannot be confined.
Any time is the right time for works of charity, but these days of Lent provide a special encouragement. Those who want to be present at the Lord’s Passover in holiness of mind and body should seek above all to win this grace, for charity contains all other virtues and covers a multitude of sins.
As we prepare to celebrate that greatest of all mysteries, by which the blood of Jesus Christ did away with our sins, let us first of all make ready the sacrificial offerings of works of mercy. In this way we shall give to those who have sinned against us what God in his goodness has already given us.
Let us now extend to the poor and those afflicted in different ways a more open-handed generosity, so that God may be thanked through many voices and the relief of the needy supported by our fasting. No act of devotion on the part of the faithful gives God more pleasure than that which is lavished on his poor. Where he finds charity with its loving concern, there he recognizes the reflection of his own fatherly care.
In these acts of giving do not fear a lack of means. A generous spirit is itself great wealth. There can be no shortage of material for generosity where it is Christ who feeds and Christ who is fed. In all this activity there is present the hand of him who multiplies the bread by breaking it, and increasing it by giving it away.
The giver of alms should be free from anxiety and full of joy. His gain will be greatest when he keeps back least for himself. The holy apostle Paul tells us: He who provides seed for the sower will also provide bread for eating; he will provide you with more seed, and will increase the harvest of your goodness, in Christ Jesus our Lord, who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever. Amen.
