I Killed More People Than Ted Bundy”
Bigger Killer Than Ted Bundy.
Kathi Aultman often repeats in her interviews: 'I have killed more people than Ted Bundy', the American serial killer. Now, Aultman, a former abortionist, is a leading figure in the American pro-life scene. As a girl, she used to dissect fish after fishing trips with her father, a Methodist preacher. She asked her mother to bring home animal hearts, livers, and kidneys so that she could study them in depth. Later, Aultman studied medicine. She was about to leave for university in New Jersey when she became pregnant and had an abortion. This experience drew her to gynecology, and she learned to perform early, late-term and 'dismemberment' abortions.
Lucrative. Performing abortions was very lucrative. When she graduated from college in Florida in 1978, she worked as a weekend abortionist, earning more money than she would have earned working in the emergency room. She performed abortions while being pregnant herself. …More

What the Church Needs Today: Our Lady of the Truncheon
Our Lady of the Truncheon.
In late September, two users, Cudowny Medalik and Cattolico non romano published pictures of Our Lady of the Truncheon on Gloria.tv. Our Lady of Succour is depicted as she is about to strike a demon who cowers terrified at her feet. This devotion originates from an old popular religious poem that recounts of the discovery of a painting of the Madonna in Magolà, a district of Lamezia Terme, Southern Italy. The painting was left by the French in a very remote period around 1265. The present Magolà church was built in 1740.
Fascist? Biased Wikipedia which in religious matters is even less reliable than in other fields claims that this iconographic representation spread to the Lamezia Terme during the twenty-year Fascist period in Italy and fell into disuse with the deposition of the regime which is wrong. Wikipedia then claims that Our Lady of the Truncheon quote “never received official ecclesiastical …More

Schneider: Liturgical Reform Pushes God Out of the Mass
The Catholic Mass
. Bishop Athanasius Schneider will publish the English interview book "The Catholic Mass" next January with Sophia Press. It was written in collaboration with the Italian church musician Aurelio Porfiri, is divided into 12 chapters, and explains the Mass. The book can be pre-ordered now. Schneider gave several interviews about the book in the USA last week.
Mass is focused on Man
Putting God Aside.
Speaking to EWTN, Schneider said readers of the book should recognise the beauty and richness of the Mass and be grateful for this unspeakable gift. For Schneider, the deepest core of the current crisis in the Church is an anthropocentric attitude that places man at the centre and Christ to the side, even in the liturgy. In the New Rite, this manifests itself in particular by “presiding" towards the people.

What Is Wrong with Faustina Kowalska’s Divine Mercy Devotion?
Forbidden. What is wrong with Sister Faustina Kowalska’s Divine Mercy Devotion? Pius XII placed the Divine Mercy Devotion, including the writings of Sr. Faustina on the Index of Prohibited Books. John XXIII confirmed this prohibition twice. In November 1958, the Holy Office stated that there is no evidence of a supernatural origin of Kowalska’s revelations. This translates, “We do not think that these apparitions come from God.” The Holy Office declared that no Feast of Divine Mercy should be instituted, and it forbad to propagate this devotion and to publish the image of Our Lord as Divine Mercy. This was confirmed by a March 1959 decree.
Odd image. The Divine Mercy image is a strange imitation of the Sacred Heart without the heart. Christ is halo-less. The signs of his passion are almost invisible. This contains the claim that we can expect an unconditional mercy without the cross. The central error of the Divine Mercy …More

I am a traditional Catholic and have no attachment to this devotion but am only saddened to see Gloria.TV take this route, I still fully support GLoria.TV think you're fantastic, but the criterion for discernment of private revelations never takes such a silly mock and rip apart approach to discernment, going through ever point you can rip yours apart just as much as follows (thank God for Mother Church to conclude the matter):

This is misleading, showing absolutely no information that this devotion is now explicitly "approved" with a Canonised saint and Feast Day. Practically all other private apparitions pass through this period which the criterion for discernment wishes to test the …More

Spain: The Misfortune of Having a Foolish Pope
Catholic Sado-Masochism. Last week, Francis wrote a letter to Monterrey Archbishop Rogelio Cabrera López, the President of the Mexican Bishops, on the Bicentenary of Mexico’s declaration of Independence. In one paragraph, Francis engaged in the usual Catholic sado-masochism which was invented by John Paul II. Looking at Mexico’s history, he speaks about “purification of memory,” acknowledging “the mistakes made in the past” which have been “very painful.” He asks for “forgiveness for personal and social sins, for all the actions or omissions that did not contribute to evangelisation.”
No Friend of Truth. Many commentators didn’t like these words. Carlos Colón accused Francis in the Diaro de Sevilla of judging the past – or rather a black legend of it - with criteria of the present. He accused Francis of not making a single allusion to the fruits of evangelisation and told him that eagerness to get along with those ihn power and political …More

Six Reasons: Women Should Wear a Veil in Church
Monica is a young Italian mother
and Catholic artist who produces religious objects, among them Mass veils for women. She explains on her webpage that this female headdress is recommended by St Paul, and that there are many other reasons, why women should veil themselves in the church. Monica’s webpage is MonniCraft.com.
Reason Number Six: The veil is useful for concentrating better in prayer, due to the awareness of being in a particular place and therefore wearing a particular outfit. Further, having the head covered with a veil restricts the view and therefore helps to be less distracted and not to look around.
Reason Number Five. The veil represents submission to the Creator. Monica writes, “I veil myself as a demonstration of my dependence on God; I hide my beauty to point to Him who created it.
Reason Number Four. Monica writes, "The veil is for me a gesture of outward humility and since I think that the habit makes the monk, …More

There are several other reasons, mainly relating to chastity and modesty. A mantilla conceals a woman's features on the sides and back shielding her from the attentions of other parishioners. This keeps everyone in the roughly "3 o'clock to 9 o'clock" range relative to her from distraction and possibly led into various sins, particularly if the woman is attractive and all the moreso if she is still unmarried.
The married men aren't tempted to distract themeslves by stealing glances at her or dwelling on thoughts of infidelity. The unmarried men aren't tempted to distract themselves even further with thoughts of courtship which, while laudable, are totally inappropriate during Mass.
Additionally, it keeps women from being distracted as well! Young women and even middle aged women are fiercely competitive when it comes to beauty, makeup, hairstyles, jewelry, etc. A mantilla keeps them from being tempted from looking around during Mass and making the inevitable comparsions.

New York Cardinal Wants to Spend More Time with His … Dog
Confession.
New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan told the New York Post that he also goes to confession, because Cardinals need confession more than others. He revealed that he confesses in street cloths and the confessors don’t recognise him. Once a confessor, during a confession mentioned – quote – “a great article by Archbishop Dolan on the sacrament of confession.” But Dolan didn’t tell the priest that he was the one who had written it.
Passport. Dolan calls himself a proud US citizen with a normal American passport. Only when he is on special missions – for instance when he went to Cuba – the Vatican issued him with a Vatican diplomatic passport. Very likely, Dolan would also be entitled to receive an Irish passport.

Slovakia Trip - Highlights
Latin. Yesterday, Francis concluded his three-day visit to Slovakia. One highlight was the Byzantine Divine Liturgy for the Exaltation of the Cross. While the papal Novus Ordo liturgies are rigidly presided over in vulgar language, Francis, at the Byzantine liturgy, suddenly prayed in Latin. The Byzantines triumphed with exquisite vestments and beautiful liturgical vessels. Communion was administered with 25,000 spoons.
Francis polemicises against "old traditions"
Polemics. At yesterday's Novus Ordo Eucharist at Slovakia's Šaštín Marian shrine, Francis used Our Lady to attack Catholics. He described Mary – in an abstract way - as a constant pilgrimage in search of God. Quote: "On this journey, one overcomes the temptation of a passive faith, content with this or that ritual or ancient tradition.” However, Francis himself attempted only recently to reduce the Church's liturgy to the Novus Ordo. Communion was distributed on the hands like biscuits. The cross …More

Christian Prime Minister Admonishes Francis
Christian Prime Minister Admonishes Francis. Francis began his trip to Hungary and Slovakia on Sunday. The programme in Budapest was only seven hours long. It included a meeting with the head of state and with representatives of Protestantism and Judaism, and the big closing Mass at the Eucharistic World Congress. The meeting with the heads of state lasted 40 minutes, slightly longer than expected. According to the Vatican's press office, they spoke about the role of the Church, environmentalism, and the family. According to his Facebook account, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán exhorted Francis "not to let Christian Hungary perish."

Monty Python Church: Synod on Synodal Synodality of the Synods
Monty Python Church. Vatican representatives provided evasive answers to clear questions at a Tuesday press conference on the upcoming Synod of Bishops on Synodality. One journalist asked for a "precise and succinct definition" of synodality. In response, Myriam Wijlens, a canon lawyer at the University of Erfurt, said it would be a - quote - "injustice" to the concept of synodality to define it before the synodal process. In flowery language, Wijlens referred to synodality as a flower that could only be described once it had had a chance to blossom.
The truth is: women dominate every parish
Women. When asked if women will be given voting rights in the Synod of Bishops, Cardinal Mario Grech, the Secretary General of the Synod of Bishops, answered evasively in the negative. Women could participate at the diocesan level. The goal of the synodal process is consensus, he said. The right of women to vote does not leave Grech …More

Francis’ Five Ways of Secularising the Papacy
Francis is undertaking a resolute effort to secularise the papacy, Stefano Fontana wrote on La Nuova Bussola Quotidiana. The first signs of this were his “good morning” and “enjoy your meal” which replace the invocation “Praised be Jesus Christ;” his worldly encyclicals; the ostentatious carrying of a black bag; calling random people on the phone; talking at the mobile phone during a general audience; going out to buy glasses; confessing that he had undergone psychological treatment.
A second way of banalising the papacy, is Francis' habit to express himself in an approximate, problematic, uncertain, often doctrinally wrong way, Fontana notices. His interpretations of the Bible during his homilies are often forced and unreliable, his responses to journalists rash, his interventions on current affairs – like Covid and vaccination - wrong and inappropriate. Many of his statements concern banal observations. The general level has gone way …More

Francis: "In hell we are united again"
COPE, the radio of the Spanish Bishops, produced a 90-minute interview with Francis. When asked what the greatest disappointment in his life had been, Francis answered in general terms. In the case of disappointment, he said, there are two ways: to remain lying down or to rise again. If you stay down, then a line from an Argentine tango of the 1930s applies - quote: " Continue like this, it doesn't matter, there in hell we will reunite."

A Vocation – Despite Traditionis Custodes
Testimony against Francis rigid restrictions.
Father Laurent Demets who was ordained a priest for the Fraternity of Saint Peter in 2000, offered his testimony after Francis used Traditionis Custodes to introduce rigid restrictions against the Roman Mass. Demets has been working in France, the United States and Canada, and is now based in Saigon, Vietnam.
A big gap. Demets grew up in France, in a non-practising Catholic family. As a child in the 1970s he liked to read a children's Bible and to go to church sometimes when accompanying his grandmother to the Novus Ordo. His interest in spirituality continued into his adolescence but he wasn’t satisfied with the New Rite without knowing why. At 18, he devoured a book about the life of Charles de Foucauld discovering his thirst for God. But he noticed the gap between what he had read and the parish liturgy which he attended from time to time.

Bishop Schneider: Genuflection is the Minimum
The minimum. The consecrated host is Christ’s body, not just a "sacred thing", but the divine person of Christ before whom one spontaneously falls on one's knees, said Bishop Athanasius Schneider in an interview with Taylor Marshall. Schneider stressed that even in purely human situations, people kneel to show love and respect. He gave as examples the engagement or Oxford University, where a doctorate is accepted kneeling. If one receives an academic paper on one's knees, how much more - Schneider said - the gift of the person of Christ.
Communion is not a meal
No meal. Schneider compared communion on the tongue while kneeling to the attitude of a trusting child towards his loving father. This is not a gesture of an ordinary meal, Schneider explained. In a restaurant, people do not kneel and wait for the food to be placed in their mouths. Therefore, a standing reception of communion in the hand corresponds to a posture that is fitting …More

Problemem (i dramatem) współczesnych katolików jest długotrwałe kłócenie się o rzeczy proste i banalne, dawniej oczywiste tj. czy Neron może legalnie podpalić Rzym albo czy posoborowy papież może legalnie podpalić Bazylikę św. Piotra i czy można im się w takiej sprawie opierać (Innocenty III, kard. Torquemada czy Akwinata wątpliwości w podobnych kwestiach nie mieli). W sferze świeckiej na tapecie od dłuższego czasu jest legalność zatykania nosa i ust na masową skalę oraz słuszność wprowadzania do organizmu nieprzebadanego preparatu, o bliżej nieokreślonych skutkach głównych i ubocznych, powstałego przy wykorzystaniu owoców mordu na bezbronnych dzieciach.

Cancel Columbus from Catholic High School?
Cancel Columbus.
A group presenting themselves as former students, was allowed to publish an anonymous revisionist guest editorial in the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier, advocating for changing the name of the big Columbus Catholic High School in Waterloo, Iowa, which belongs to Dubuque Archdiocese. It presents Christopher Columbus, the famous Italian explorer and navigator, who gave his name to the school as a terrible villain. Historical revisionism is an attempt to re-write history to make it fit one’s own ideology.
Colonisation. The group claims that “if what we now know about Christopher Columbus was widely known when our school was founded, it would never have been named for him.” However, since the school’s foundation in 1959, no substantially new information about Columbus was uncovered. They complain that “our teachers taught that Columbus discovered the ‘New World’ ignoring other Europeans there first, and more importantly, the …More

Zen, Schneider: Old Rite Catholics Will Fight
The Old Mass
will not go away because the Old Rite attracts young families and young people. It will not disappear despite Traditionis Custodes. That is the core message of an online conference with Cardinal Zen and Bishop Schneider on 9 August. The event was organised by the church musician Aurelio Porfiri. Other participants were John Rao, Felipe Alanis, James Bogle and Robert Moynihan.
Roman Mass in China. Cardinal Zen described his childhood experiences. His father was a convert who wanted to become a priest, but the missionaries dissuaded him because he had just been confirmed. He should better marry and later send a son to the seminary, they said. The father followed the advice. However, his first five children were girls. Zen was the sixth child and the first boy. The father attended mass with him every day, on Sundays, they even went to five Masses in five different churches. For the son, this was a wonderful experience. It was …More

Little Ratzinger Becomes Maxi-Bergoglio
Not About Unity. The suppression of the Roman Mass by Traditionis Custodes is not, as claimed, about the Church’s unity, the Polish lecturer Tomasz Dekert from the Jesuit University Ignatianum in Krakow explained. On the contrary, Dekert sees a schism based on the alienation of the hierarchical and academic elites from the ordinary faithful. For him, this has already become apparent with the introduction of the New Mass. For Dekert, this schism began when Church elites developed feelings of omnipotence and wanted to change the Church according to their own ideas. The Old Rite was accepted by all Catholics, regardless of social classes, political opinions, and cultural background. The New Mass caused this unity to break down as non-traditional rituals were imposed on the Church from above.

Communion in the Hand – Another Evil Which Needs to Be Stopped
Authorised Disobedience. A book by various authors on Communion in the hand has been published a couple of weeks ago in France by the editor Contretemps. The preface is by Cardinal Burke. One contribution by Monsignor Nicola Bux is entitled: Communion in the hand, an authorised disobedience. It debunks the myths that Communion in the hand was authorised by Paul VI and confirmed by John Paul II and Benedict XVI as one of two normal ways of receiving communion.
Pardoning the Disobedient. Bux writes that Paul VI confirmed the prohibition of Communion in the hand, exhorting bishops, and priests to – quote - "submit scrupulously to this newly confirmed law." However, with a duplicity, typical for the Vatican, he allowed bishops in whose dioceses there was massive resistance to this prohibition, to – quote – “pardon” the disobedient. Now, in these same countries, the bishops will remove a priest from all his functions if he …More

Where has your leadership been over the last few years? How did you get into the position you are in if you won’t lead?

Novus Ordo Bishop Defends Old Mass: “Francis’ Idea of ‘Unity’ Is Uniformity”
Francis’ idea of “unity” is uniformity – the retired Melbourne Auxiliary bishop Peter Elliott wrote on July 28 in The Australian about Traditionis Custodes, Francis’ Motu proprio against the Roman Rite. Elliott is a convert from Anglicanism – his father was a high church Anglican vicar - and a former official at the now defunct Family Council which was a part of the Roman Curia. Elliott writes that he welcomed the introduction of the New Rite and celebrates it daily. He also published three widely used manuals and two other books in the US and Spain on how to celebrate this post-Vatican II liturgy properly.
Agatha Christie indult. Elliott recalls that in 1971, Paul VI received a letter signed by literati, artists, musicians, and scholars including Joan Sutherland, Yehudi Menuhin, Graham Greene and Kenneth Clark. They argued that the traditional Mass should still be available, citing its cultural patrimony. …More
