A priest from Rwanda: “I’ll tell you about Our Lady of Kibeho”
BEYOND THE GENOCIDE

A priest from Rwanda: “I’ll tell you about Our Lady of Kibeho”

He lived through the 1994 genocide in Rwanda and survived. Don Jean Claude tells the Daily Compass how his life has changed since his encounter with Our Lady. He tells us how the apparitions and prophecies of the Mother of Kibeho in Africa are not over, but speak to the people and the Church of today: “This is why we must all listen to Our Lady and put into practice what She says”.


A State of Fear Used To Justify A New Regime
100 SECONDS TO THE APOCALYPSE

A State of Fear Used To Justify A New Regime

The Doomsday Clock, the imaginary clock that indicates how close we are to Judgment Day, has just been moved at the beginning of 2020 to “100 seconds from midnight.” Are we really living in the most dangerous moment of history? The continuous top-tier news coverage of the Chinese coronavirus is keeping us in a continual state of fear, a fear that is unjustified but which “serves a purpose.”

The nightmare of a world without limits or boundaries

At the University of Pisa it is now permitted for a student to change his or her name even if it has not been changed on his or her birth certificate, all in an effort to end discrimination. But behind the mantras of gender freedom, globalization, multiculturalism, “ecu-mania” and environmentalism is an assault on the identity of the person and of nations, cultures, and the Catholic faith – it is an assault against reality itself in order to replace it with a constructed ideal. But if you try to take away the sides of a square, the result is that its reality disappears and becomes nothing.

Presidential Elections 2020, Trump gambles on life

The historic participation in the March for Life in Washington last January 24, (the first president in history), Donald Trump not only confirms his commitment to life, already evident in many government acts, but he puts the fight against abortion at the centre of the next election campaign.


“Midrar is alive and growing. Why are English doctors saying he’s dead?”
THE FATHER OF A CHILD AT RISK OF EUTHANASIA

“Midrar is alive and growing. Why are English doctors saying he’s dead?”

Since last September Midrar Ali, 4 months old, has been in Saint Mary’s Hospital in Manchester, where doctors want to take him off life support. The hospital’s diagnosis is “brain stem death”. But the family dispute it. And the father, a biomedical scientist named Karwan, tells the New Compass: “My son’s heart is beating, his circulation is working. He perspires, keeps growing, and now weighs seven kilos. How can they claim he’s already dead?” On January 22 the hearing before the Court of First Instance ended, and now we are waiting for the verdict of the judge who will decide on Midrar’s life.

Scorsese, the remorse of having turned his back on Christ

In the latest film by the American director, The Irishman, there is a notable repetition of the same autobiographical thread also found in Silence and The Last Temptation of Christ: The remorse of having turned his back on Christ to follow lust. It is no coincidence that his adviser was the Jesuit James Martin, for whom one can live in sin and be saved anyway.

France: the law that eliminates fathers gains ground

Despite massive street protests, on Tuesday the French Senate began to debate a bill to extend artificial insemination to single and lesbian women. The final vote is scheduled for February 4th. Family associations and bishops highlight the absurdity of a text that eliminates the father figure and, therefore, creates orphans.

After the Altar, the Throne. The sad decline of Royalty

Harry and Meghan’s farewell from the Royal Family reveals that the English Monarchy is drawing closer to its ignominious end. The decline of the role of the Throne follows the decline of the role of the Altar and is a consequence of religious disorientation.

Sarah and Benedict XVI, the book is released, text and authors confirmed

A press release announcing the release of the Italian edition of "From the Depths of Our Hearts" for January 30th puts an end (or almost) to days and days of fierce controversy. The signatures will be "Robert Sarah with Joseph Ratzinger / Benedict XVI" to avoid further speculation. So the truth has been restored, but the wound of a media lynching against Cardinal Sarah and the pope emeritus remains, to which no one - for sure - will apologise. And there is also the "unsolved mystery" of a statement signed by Benedict XVI and Sarah last Friday: it should have been published by the Secretariat of State but all trace has been lost.


“We are at war, but some are already in Mary’s triumph.”
CHURCH

“We are at war, but some are already in Mary’s triumph.”

Full house at PIME, Milan, for the Daily Compass meeting with Sister Emmanuel Maillard. The nun’s words about our time: “Our Lady in Medjugorje said that ‘there will be trials’ and we will not be strong. The problem is that today we consider our time in this world as our only concern, forgetting that we have a soul. There are young people who don’t even know they have a soul. The world is in agony, because we are at war: but this means that the triumph of Mary’s Immaculate Heart is close and some are already experiencing it. However, Our Lady asks us to collaborate, by loving her Son Jesus, putting Mass and Eucharistic adoration at the centre of our lives. And, as Ratzinger had already foreseen, by forming many small prayer groups, open to God’s will.”

The murky links between Podemos and the Latin American socialist regimes

Funding, exchange of favours, consultancies, contacts and many ideological affinities: there is still much to discover about the connection (which exists and is evident) between Podemos, the Spanish left-wing party in government, and the socialist regimes in South America, especially with former President Morales in Bolivia.

Why Scruton matters

Sir Roger Scruton, the British philosopher who died last week, was known for being a tenacious defender of the absolute importance of beauty. From his point of view, in the last century, all western forms of art have gradually renounced the pursuit of beauty, mainly because of atheism.
