Covid has exposed our lack of faith

The most incredible phenomenon of the Covid period is the worldwide restrictions on masses and access to churches. The fact of having accepted without even fighting to renounce what we hold dearest, the Eucharist, adds to the astonishment. It calls us to recognize our misery and embrace conversion. This is the only way to ensure that this time will not have been in vain.

Covid Vaccine Without Testing? Too Risky

The European Medicines Agency’s request to be able to use the vaccine against the coronavirus as early as this autumn, without proper testing, is extremely dangerous: it runs the risk of worsening the effects of the coronavirus rather than preventing it and also of causing serious brain damage.

The World on course for a Demographic Catastrophe

An American study foresees that by the end of the century there will be a general decline in the world population, with the populations of 23 countries reduced by more than 50%. The researchers say that a major social reorganization is needed or it will be a disaster. But rather than seek real solutions, they want to continue with the same anti-human ideologies that have brought us to this point of crisis. The Holy See also deserves an admonishment.

World 17_07_2020 Souad Sbai

Today Hagia Sophia has once again been transformed into a mosque, as was Erdogan’s intention from the beginning of his career. But where does this policy lead? Erdogan makes no secret of his plan to restore the Ottoman Empire. He has already presented himself as the protector of the mosques of Jerusalem. What if one day he does restore the Caliphate?

The Scapular: Mary’s way of clothing us with Christ

The devotion of the Carmelite scapular has its roots in the 13th century, a gift of the Blessed Mother to offer protection from the fires of hell. Saint John Paul II was wearing it on the day of the assassination attempt on his life, and that scapular, soaked in blood, has become a relic.

Large families are discriminated against. Here’s why

A report examined 1,100 articles published in German newspapers between 2011 and 2012: families with a large number of children were the subject of criticism. Why is this? Another survey demonstrated that the greater the increase in the number of family members, the more probable it is, that its members will take a distance from liberal bioethical positions. This means that large families have led to an increase in the number of opponents of abortion and LGBT rights.


Printing money kills enterprise

Printing money kills enterprise

Monetary expansion distorts entrepreneurial competitiveness because it concedes enormous power to companies that have easier access to liquidity. This is why entrepreneurs tend to disappear and why companies in the hands of finance tend to multiply.

Expansive monetary policies kill savings and responsibility

For years, it seems that the only way to resolve economic crises is by central banks issuing new liquidity. However, this continuous creation of money “out of thin air” has negative ethical implications. It damages individuals and social cooperation.

Poland: What’s at stake in the Presidential Election

On Sunday, July 12, Poland will hold the second round of its presidential election. The contenders are the incumbent President Andrzej Duda and Rafał Trzaskowski.

Pedophilia: "A satanic cult spread in the centers of power"

«Thousands of children are kidnapped, abused, killed and sacrificed to the devil for reasons of power. The victims say it and all the evidence"; "We have collected testimonies that speak of the link between pedophilia and Satanism"; "The phenomenon is left uncontrolled by the police who are subjected to blackmail and because it is the drug of the elite"; "The battle between good and evil is waged with the innocent." Robert David Steele, chief consultant of the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Human Trafficking and Child Sex Abuse, a former officer of the Marines, a former member of the CIA and candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2017, speaks to the Daily Compass.

The Chinese martyrs will be our judges

Today the Church celebrates the 120 Chinese martyrs: bishops, priests, nuns, lay people. An awkward story for those today, who have overturned the values at stake to indicate compromise rather than martyrdom as a model. Moreover, what happens in the relationship between the Holy See and China concerns each one of us.
