Mary is for the Moslems the true Sayyida, or Lady. The only possible serious rival to her in their creed would be Fatima, the daughter of Mohammed himself. But after the death of Fatima, Mohammed wrote: "Thou shalt be the most blessed of all the women in Paradise, after Mary." In a variant of the text, Fatima is made to say: "I surpass all the women, except Mary."
Moslemism is the only great post-Christian religion of the world. Because it had its origin in the seventh century under Mohammed, it was possible to unite within it some elements of Christianity and of Judaism, along with particular customs of Arabia. Moslemism takes the doctrine of the unity of God, His Majesty and His Creative Power, and uses it, in part, as a basis for the repudiation of Christ, the Son of God. Misunderstanding the notion of the Trinity, Mohammed made Christ a …More

Most Holy Father,
It is with great anxiety that we observe all around us a persistent degradation of marriage and the family, the origin and foundation of all human society. This decay is rapidly accelerating, particularly because of the legalization of the most immoral and depraved sorts of behavior. Today the law of God, even the simply natural law, is being publicly trampled underfoot; the gravest sins are multiplying in a troubling way and cry out to Heaven for vengeance.
Most Holy Father,
We cannot conceal from you the fact that the first part of the Synod dedicated to “Pastoral Challenges of the Family in the Context of Evangelization” greatly alarmed us. From ecclesiastical dignitaries we heard and read statements so contrary to the clear and constant doctrine of the Church concerning the sanctity of marriage, that our souls were deeply disturbed. These men claimed to have your support, and their claims met with no public denial. What worries us even more is that certain of your …More

On his very fine blog, Traditional Catholic Priest, Fr. Peter Carota recently posted an article that draws some interesting comparisons between the traditional Latin Mass and the Novus Ordo from the unique perspective of the priest.
It’s well worth reading and sharing.
Unfortunately, it would seem that the very people who stand to benefit most from Fr. Carota’s insights are also the ones most poorly-equipped to give him a fair hearing, and in a certain sense, it’s not their fault.
The Novus Ordo practically breeds Mass-goers that are fixated on their own subjective liturgical experiences and preferences.
I know. I was one of them.
Few in the Novus Ordo world will even attempt to deny that the way in which the Mass is experienced is heavily influenced by the personal characteristics of the priest-celebrant.
For example, when the Novus Ordo Missae is offered by a priest who communicates joy and a sincere personal love for the Lord and His people, not simply in the homily, but throughout …More

Edited by Fr. Robert Dodaro, O.S.A.
Ignatius Press, 311 pages
1. The Argument of the Debate
Fr. Robert Dodaro, O.S.A., President of the Patristic Institute, Augustinianum (Rome)
“The essays in this volume represent the responses of five Cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church and four other scholars to the book The Gospel of the Family, published earlier this year by Walter Cardinal Kasper. Kasper’s book contains the address he gave during the Extraordinary Consistory of Cardinals held on February 20-21, 2014.” (p. 11)
“The authors of this volume jointly contend that the New Testament presents Christ as unambiguously prohibiting divorce and remarriage on the basis of God’s original plan for marriage set out at Genesis 1:27 and 2:24. The ‘merciful’ solution to divorce advocated by Cardinal Kasper is not unknown ‘in the ancient Church, but virtually none of the writers who survive and whom we take to be authoritative defend it; indeed when they mention it, it is rather to condemn it as …More

An Academic Opinion on the Reform of Canon Law on Marriage Annulments

In Semaine juridique no. 39, September 2, 2015 (pp. 1662 – 1663), under the heading
“The reform of the Church’s legal process, a revolution that does not say its name,” can be read these very accurate words of Cyrille Dounot, associate professor of the University of Auvergne, canon lawyer registered with the ecclesiastical authority of Lyon:
“On September 8th last, Pope Francis presented two Motu Proprios that profoundly changed canon law relative to the annulment of marriage, Mitis Iudex Dominus Iesus, for the Latin Church, and Mitis et Misericors Iesus for the Eastern Churches. They come into effect December 8thnext. The changes established in both are similar, although specific to each legal order (Latin vs. Eastern). Essentially, they aim to suppress the principle of collegiality of the tribunal, to return to the system of the bishop-judge, to create a new process of “increased brevity,” to abandon the principle of a second conforming judgement, to limit the possibilities for …More

Statement by Bp. Bernard Fellay, Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X, on the new pastoral approach to marriage according to Cardinal Kasper

Considering the second 'Synod on the Family', it is due diligence to review this statement and warning so timely given on April 12 of last year:
What will happen at the Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops that is to be held October 5 – 19, 2014, dedicated to “the pastoral challenges for the family in the context of evangelization?” This question is asked with great concern, since during the last Consistory, on February 20, 2014, Cardinal Walter Kasper, at the request of Pope Francis and with his emphatic support, presented the topic of the next Synod by making supposedly pastoral overtures that were doctrinally scandalous.
This presentation, which was initially supposed to remain secret, was published in the press, and the agitated debates that it sparked among the members of the Consistory ended up being revealed as well. One university professor dared to speak about a veritable “cultural revolution” (Roberto de Mattei), and one journalist described as a “paradigm …More

I Challenge Thee, Mr. Voris - A Challenge to Micheal Voris, Fr. Paul Nicholson and CMTV.
In light of the continued calumnies of Michael Voris and Fr. Paul Nicholson (otherwise known as Mr. Carroll’s Merry Band of Pusillanimous Puppets), I offer here the following video from several months back. It tells you all you need to know about their character.
Look, if there’s any sure sign that one is a false prophet who is laboring for something other than the propagation of truth, it is when that individual steadfastly refuses to directly engage the very people who’s alleged positions they attack. That describes the cowards mentioned above perfectly. At least as of this writing…
So at this, please allow me add this public challenge to the mix yet again:
Michael Voris (prior to his not-so-mysterious about face) had me on air a number of times as what he called “an expert” on Vatican II. (I make no such claim.) Since unwillingness to “accept” Vatican II is central to so much of his case against …More

The Vortex - Weapons of Mass Destruction - Michael Voris condemns Vatican II and the Novus Ordo Missae.
"Our Catholic Investigative Agency Team devoted 500 hours of research to come up with a riveting account of what happened to the Mass following Vatican II." - ChurchMilitant.com
This video exposes the contradictions between the way ChurchMilitant used to openly support the stance of the SSPX and of how now they have apparently been forced to change their message due to "Terry Carroll – his self-appointed “Executive Producer” – the same guy that bought Mike and CMTV a building at a time when they were about to find themselves without a studio and precious little resources for securing a new one." - Louie Verrecchio (harvestingthefruit.com/folly/)

I have had various people PM me on this site and tell me of how you have messaged them using horrible language and attacks without ever talking with them. Sounds like a pattern. It also sounds like they are wanting to make sure you get the boot from here.

Michael Voris and ChurchMilitant TV Episode against Novus Ordo Missae - Open Support of SSPX Position on the New Mass.
This is a segment from Michael Voris and ChurchMilitant condemning the Novus Ordo Missae from their program series 'Weapons of Mass Destruction'. Note the content that Michael teaches is the same that his most recent episodes have been trying, unsuccessfully, to paint a false picture of the FSSPX as "schismatics" and "heretics" because they do not openly favour the Novus Ordo Missae, but the Tridentine Mass.
This video segment shows the contradictory nature of the current Michael Voris obsession with the FSSPX and shows the clear contradictions of his current stance.
Very enlightening work that many of his followers would be, I am sure, shocked to see.

Yet, you call me a "nut" (a personal attack) instead of trying to defend your (false) opinion. That's sad.

Over the course of the last three days, Michael Voris has put his unholy obsession with the SSPX on display via some 30 minutes of video (with the promise of more to come) featuring over four thousand words – a portion of which was allegedly plagiarized (but more on that in a moment.)
Even though I’m not real keen on the idea of expending a great deal of energy parsing the criticisms of a man who is so clearly motivated by an agenda that has nothing whatsoever to do with seeking and telling the truth…
Below, I’ll provide in italics what I consider the most noteworthy parts of Voris’ videos such as they have been released to date, with my commentary immediately to follow.
Many Catholics, most Catholics, in fact, don’t really know very much at all, if anything, about this group which has been around in one form or another since 1988, as one way of counting … The Society came about in response, reaction to the overall weakening of the Church and many of Her leaders, which has been an …More

"ChurchMilitant" aka Michael Voris and company works with JIFGA, a jewish organization that promotes Noahide laws. He even had JIFGA on his show to promote their antichrist work. When Voris went to raise money for Fr. Paul Kalchik because gofundme cancelled his gofundme page, guess what organization Voris used for a crowdfunding website? JIFGA. Voris promoted the ALPHA program which is a non-denominational "Christian" conversion program. Voris believes that those with the vice of sodomy are victim souls. Rumor has it that Voris has ties to the Opus Dei cult. And Voris lived most his life as a sodomite and only outed himself before another news organization was about to. Why do people still continue to listen to this definitely not the Pope it's the bishops apostate?

BOMBSHELL: Bishop Morlino Apologizes to SSPX - I wonder if Michael Voris and the rest at CMTV will clarify their constant parading of Bp. Morlino's supposed statement on the SSPX which he, in the previously posted linked video, admits he never actually wrote and openly and publicly apologizes to the SSPX! I wonder if @michael newman and @Dr Stuart Reiss want to maybe apologize to? Are they man enough, like this Bishop?

@Dr Stuart Reiss - I am sorry (for you) that you could not control your emotions more. You claim your "doctorate" is in medicine, I believe, if I remember your previous outburst correctly. My post graduate work was/is in psychology. I would guess I have taken more academic classes than you and in them we have to present our arguments and defend them as well as effectively counter another's. However, you seem to merely start to "go off your rocker" when it comes to dialogue, for some reason. Still, one's major is not an excuse for not being able to follow the Socratic Method when it comes to philosophical/theological discussions.
You start with a claim, but cannot defend it and merely resort to name-calling and other abusive methods. How many of your posts have been removed by the moderators on this site? How many warnings have you gotten? How close are you to being banned?
