Podcast: Understanding The Manifesto of Faith

Cardinal Muller released the Manifesto of Faith late last week and kicked up a hornet’s nest. This document is best understood in the context of the Modernist crisis.

There is Only One Truth

Earlier this week, Francis met with the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Ahmad el-Tayeb and signed a joint declaration with him. Included in that declaration was the statement that “The pluralism and the diversity of religions … are willed by God in His wisdom.” As usual with Francis, people are trying hard to explain how, if you turn the page, hold it up to the light, and read that claim from just the right angle, you will find a way to say, “I suppose, in a way, that’s true.” The best spin it can be given is that the existence of religious beliefs in all societies through all the ages speaks to the fact that people want to know the Truth. They want to know God.

But God doesn’t want us to know only some truth, or to know it in a twisted fashion. That’s why He sent His Son, so that we could know the truth and by it be set free. If God allows many religions it is only because some people, for whatever reason, do not know the fullness of truth yet, but God allows them to see glimpses of it. God sent His Son, Truth itself, to give us the fullness of truth, and that fullness of truth is only available in the Church Jesus Christ Himself founded. It is our job, through the witness of our lives, to bring to all people the truth of the Catholic Faith. Because one day, one way or another, every knee must bend and every tongue must proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord. And at that very moment, we will also acknowledge that Mary is His Mother and that she is, indeed, the Queen of Heaven and Earth.

There is not a Muslim neighborhood in heaven, no district where Jesus is told that He is really only a prophet somewhat below Muhammed. There is no Protestant neighborhood in heaven where people are allowed to ignore the Blessed Mother or deny that the Eucharist is Jesus, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, and that we were clearly instructed to receive Him in the sixth chapter of John. There is not a Hindu, or Buddhist, or Zoroastrian, or agnostic, or atheistic neighborhood in heaven. What the Catholic Church has perennially taught is true, and if you do not acknowledge that reality now or at your death, you will not get into heaven. That’s the bottom line. That’s the truth that the Catholic Church owes to every person alive right now, and it’s the truth that is being suppressed even by most of the Catholic hierarchy. And besides failing to instruct all people of this truth, the Church in this dereliction of duty is denying many, many graces to men of good will who truly want to know the truth, now, not just at their deaths. They are denying the graces that can only come through the Sacraments of the Church, graces that people could benefit from now and take with them into eternity, if only we would stop pretending that it doesn’t matter whether they know the truth now or not.

In the Great Commission, Our Lord instructed the apostles, “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” He never said, instead, to flatter them by telling them that whatever they believe is good enough, that God doesn’t really care whether we’re baptized and whether we obey His Son, or that God desires a world with many erroneous beliefs. Enough of that, Catholic Church. You are failing this entire generation with your cowardice and your failure to bring the Good News, and all of the Good News, to a world that desperately needs to hear it.

Podcast: American Moloch

There’s no harm in denying the need to pray for the Pope to consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary as per the request of Our Lady of Fatima. It clearly hasn’t been done yet. The Cardinals are meeting with the pope from February 21-24. To that end, I’m calling for a Novena to Our Lady of Fatima. It can be found in this link.

Podcast: “Human Fraternity”:Document Signed by Pope Francis and Ahmed Al-Tayeb

Pope Francis and the Grand Master of al-Azhar sign a document on ‘Human Fraternity’ that is reminiscent of many secular values, including universalism and exclusivity.

Podcast: The New Vatileaks And The Order Of Malta

Most people who pay attention to the mess that is the Church today are aware of the various stories involving the Order of Malta from the past 3 years or so. Late last week WikiLeaks released some confidential documents that shed some light into this mess.

Guest submission: An Open Letter to Church Militant

Editor’s Note: Guest editorials/articles are the opinion of the author only, and do not reflect the opinions or positions of the staff of this blog.

Dear Church Militant,

In light of the recent abortion law dust up in Virginia and the reprehensible comments of Gov. Northam in that regard, I thought you might find the following information on his personal history fascinating. Please read the information contained in the following link:

https://act.colorofchange.org/sign/northam-must-resign/

As you have pointed out in the past (but far too infrequently, in my humble opinion), abortion, contraception, population control, eugenics, racism, and American anti-Catholicism all have common roots … in Protestantism and Freemasonry. I would add slavery and Jim Crow to that list, and I ask you to consider these connections and pray about giving coverage to them in the future.

As a faithful, multi-racial Catholic in New Orleans, where Black Catholics make up almost 50% of practicing Catholics (Sunday Mass-goers anyway), I wish you would cover this aspect of things more often than you do. I understand everything you have been saying about the politically-correct targeting of white Christian males, but please don’t forget that Black males are also being targeted for homosexualization and demasculation by the same forces, and that they are also being targeted for elimination by elements of the police forces in this country.

Just because a gang of Soros-funded and similar AstroTurf outfits like Black Lives Matter have seized control of this originally Black community-based issue, it does not mean that it’s a total contrivance or a fabricated issue.

Coming from the South, with its history of lynchings and involuntary sterilizations of Black women for generations, I can tell you racism does indeed still exist and it is as anti-life as ever. And it’s Protestant, not Catholic. Please ponder how most Planned Parenthood clinics exist in Black neighborhoods in every urban area of this country, and I think you will understand what I’m getting at.

Having said all that, I will back your defense of the Covington Kids 1000%!!!

Keep up the good work, but just remember Black Catholics. Don’t take it for granted that the Black community is captured by the Democrats and mentally enslaved to their agenda. Don’t throw us under the bus. We are stronger together.

In Christ,

Roger Myers

According to L.A. County 2010 statistics, there are more than twice as many Catholics in the Santa Clarita Valley as there are members of all other faiths combined. The only SCV group larger than Catholics are those who claim no religion.

Podcast: Not Every Abuse Allegation Against A Priest Is True

I mean, that should be obvious, right? But it isn’t. It’s becoming increasingly easy to believe the very worst about the priests and bishops of the Church, and even of other lay Catholics. Why is that?
