Moltmann, the father of errors of contemporary theology

The Protestant theologian also had great influence in Catholic circles. A negative influence, which relies on hope but places it within history, secularising faith. The results are still evident today.

Sister Zaira, from religious vocation to holy death

"Celebrate, because I am with Jesus!", this is Sister Zaira Dovico’s spiritual testament stated only days before her premature death, not yet 50, due to cancer. The Daily Compass offers its condolences to the Dovico family and publishes her brother Ermes Dovico’s testimony (Daily Compass colleague) which retraces the birth of her religious vocation and the last period of her life.


Gays in the seminary, pope eats his words
CONFUSION

Gays in the seminary, pope eats his words

After the remark on faggotry in the priesthood, a sensational turn by Pope Francis: he encourages an aspiring gay seminarian not to give up. An inconceivable contradiction, which turns into a victory for the LGBT lobby.


Some Italian bishops like gay seminarians

Some Italian bishops like gay seminarians

Speaking on the Pope's now famous remark on priests and homosexuality, the vice-president of the Italian Bishops Conference (CEI), Msgr. Savino, attributes Bergoglio’s affirmation to an OK for gays in the seminary. But Daily Compass sources deny this is the case. Evidently there are bishops in the CEI pushing to change Church norms.

F-ggotry? For the Pope the problem is image, not moral

The Pope's conversation in a closed-door meeting with the Italian Bishops Conference, and reported across the globe, are not against gays. On the contrary, this pontificate has promoted people and the LGBT agenda in every way possible. Even in seminaries.

The new norms on apparitions tear apologetics to pieces

The document presented on 17 May is in clear discontinuity with the approach the Church has always taken towards supernatural phenomena. The new norms deny the possibility of recognising the traces of God's intervention in human history.

New norms to deny Marian apparitions

Fernández’s document: six criteria to ascertain everything, but woe betide the supernaturalness of phenomena and apparitions. At most a nihil obstat, for the record, "it does no harm...".

NEW RULES

Tightening up on apparitions: only Pope decides if event is supernatural

The new norms presented today by Prefect Fernández, provide for greater centralisation in Rome of the decision-making power on the authenticity of the alleged apparitions. A centralisation that effectively prevents bishops from pronouncing themselves, but only to regulating worship and pastoral care on the basis of six more or less stringent criteria. Scepticism of the new Vatican course continues Medjugorje.


Pope's titles, the great misunderstanding about the primacy of Peter

Pope's titles, the great misunderstanding about the primacy of Peter

The reintroduction of the title "Patriarch of the West" for the pope in the Pontifical Yearbook, combined with the already consummated downgrading of the title "Vicar of Christ" appears to be a move to please the Orthodox; but it is a historical and theological error.

Who will be the rainbow cardinals at next papal conclave

Even in the so-called peripheries, not everyone thinks like Congolese Cardinal Ambongo, symbol of the African rebellion against Fiducia supplicans. Among the electors of the future Pope, there will be a quota that is particularly sensitive to LGBT groups.

Vatican set to renew controversial agreement despite China’s betrayal

For Cardinal Parolin, Vatican Secretary of State, the secret agreement with China must be renewed. And this time it should be definitive. Nothing counts, neither Beijing's violations of the agreement nor the growing persecution of Catholics who resist kowtowing to the Party, including those in Hong Kong.

Cardinal Sarah pleas like Solženicyn: "Don't give in to lies!"

Half a century after the Russian writer's famous denunciation, the African prelate echoes the same words. His warning is against the temptation to pander to the "fluid" atheism that has penetrated the Church, also in view of the next Synod.
