If only we had a "fake double" Francis like Paul VI and Sr. Lucia!

Too bad he's no longer with us. He passed away a few years ago (the article is from 2018).

Francis Has Received a Promising Visitor

Plus in the second group of photos, he's wearing the rosary like a necklace - the only famous person whom I know who does the same is the depraved pop star "Madonna" ( no relation to the real Madonna - Our Lady)!

Mexico: Francis Drops Another Brick

No surprise from the Argentine Francis. I taught ESL to Latin Americans and remember well how the South Americans (Colombians, Peruvians, etc.) resented - one may even say disdained - the Mexicans. They especially hated when U. S. citizens equated all Hispanic food with tacos & burritos!

Pope: Altar and Tabernacle Should Not Be Separated

Notice Pope Pius stresses the altar as the location of SACRIFICE, not the notion of "table of the Lord" where one partakes in a meal (albeit a sacred one). It is this favoring of the Protestant idea of Eucharist as meal, not sacrifice that has let many modernist liturgists to banish the tabernacle from the sanctuary. I suspect this is the rationale behind the animus toward the traditional Latin …More

Big Plans: Francis Wants to Meet Putin For "Peace" - While Civil War Is Ravaging in The Church

Looks like Francis finally 'jumped the shark' for some of his fans - the liberal priests at my Church, who usually sing his praises and hang on his every utterance, are livid at his "pro-Russia" taking points! They even opine that if he doesn't retract his comments he'll be canceled as "Putin's Pope" like Pius XII was slandered as "Hitler's Pope" Some said Francis doesn't 'live is reality' if he …More

It's both amusing and frightening to see how these supporters of Francis are so "all in" with war with Russia they now are turning on him! 😲

The other story about Elon Musk

Yeas, he's "an anti-Christ" (notice I didn't say THE Anti-Christ). I have an example of this: a friend of mine has basically quit going to Church since it doing nothing to solve the world's problems. Instead he follows Musk's achievements religiously, sets his schedule around watching SpaceX launches, and hopes to be moving to Mars! NO joke! It's diabolical!

Trump claims trailer for Piers Morgan interview was deceptively edited

More 'fake news' drama... Designed to distract us from the mess that is actually in the White House now. Guess weren't supposed to think: "Gee, I'm sure glad he ain't Pres. anymore. Hope the "adult" Dems win again." NOT FALLING FOR IT! Piers knows about "fake outrage" and storming off sets...

Looks like subversion

Exactly! I've never understood why these woke liberals who claim to "fight the patriarchy" and cancel men in general defend by virtue-signaling the most misogynistic religion on the face of the earth! Please speak to the women raped by Muslims migrants!

Wierd photo shoots mid war

Yeah, it's struck me as very odd that Pres. Zelensky is always wearing that same olive green quasi-military tee shirt every time you see him. I know that the image is one of urgency in that one doesn't have time to change into nice clothes when one's nation is under attack, but one can have time to do numerous interviews and photo shoots and appear at the Grammy awards, etc.?? Plus, someone …More

Plus, someone should advise him that battle fatigues are a bad look for U. S. audiences since they call to mind dictators like Fidel Castro, Saddam Hussein, and Gaddafi.

We just hope this is Episcopalian

I think it is either Anglican or Episcopalian - notice the altar cross on the "Cranmer table" probably with the words "Do this is memory of me" (a favorite of Protestants who insists the Eucharist is merely a memorial - NOT a sacrifice). You might even make out the silver tray for those little "shot" glasses used for the wine.

In the Footsteps of JPII: Francis Goes Inter-religious

"Francis wants to visit the September 14/15 inter-religious congress" How much you want to bet he won't be commemorating (or even mentioning) that these dates are the feasts of the Triumph of the Cross & Our Lady of Sorrows? The cartoon is apt - Christ is missing in the actions of this man. Lord have mercy!

TRUTH is NOT a DEMOCRACY

As Fulton Sheen once so poignantly put it; "A lie is a lie, even if everyone believes it; the Truth is the Truth even if no one believes it!" This crowd/mob mentality is the sin of Babel where man thought they could 'storm heaven' due to overwhelming "unity" - though it was a unity of error!
