    Marx: farcical resignation in the footsteps of Luther

    The path marked out by Cardinal Marx to support the German synod follows the route already taken by Luther, with its well-known results. And now that the Pope has rejected his resignation, his position in the German Church is strengthened.

    The Eucharist: true Body born of the Virgin Mary

    "Ave verum Corpus natum de Maria Virgine" (Hail,  O true Body, born of the Virgin Mary). These are the words of the famous Eucharistic hymn that reminds us of the special bond that exists between the Son of God and His Mother Mary. As, Benedict XVI explained, Mary "was the living 'tabernacle' of the Eucharist." St. John Paul II recalled the inseparable union between the Incarnation and the Eucharistic mystery. Mary's "yes" guarantees that the Christian faith is not some vague spiritualism, because from her womb, the Body, the true Bread of Life, is born.

    • Interview with Cardinal Müller

    The German Church: «Marx is responsible for the failure»

    On the same day that Cardinal Marx resigned from his position as Archbishop of Munich, Cardinal Gerhard L. Müller was interviewed on La Nuova Bussola Quotidiano weekly webcast. “This so-called synodal path has failed because it goes against divine law and Marx is responsible. Now, he wants to delegate to the pope, who is his friend, the task of solving the problems its caused. What’s more, “these bishops do not want a schism, they want to set themselves up as leaders of a nationalistic Church, convinced they are the future of the universal church. The pope has to do more for the unity of the faith, climate and migrants are important but secondary issues.” And on the subject of Covid, “it was a grave error to allow the state to dictate the line to take on the Sacraments and the Eucharist”.

    • A WAY OUT

    Let’s save ourselves from this horizontal Church.

    Pastors have penned us in an asphyxiating, overly materialistic enclosure, where only migrants, the unemployed, and the poor are also found. They tell us that the true Christian is one who uses air conditioning sparingly in the summer, who pays their taxes and gets vaccinated. They have replaced charity with solidarity, justice with pietism. Thus our life’s purpose has the taste of a bitter end. But we can save ourselves by building Noah's arks to take on board those who want to live for Eternity.

    Wyszyński, Primate of Millennium, future Blessed

    “People see in him a martyr and a victor...a good fighter who is always in the trenches...and find they are led to impetuously bear witness to him,” wrote the Vaticanist Silvio Negro of the cardinal who sustained the Polish Church during the persecution by the Communist regime. At his death John Paul II repeated: “The Cardinal Primate teaches that this strength comes from Mary, Mother of Christ”. Ambassador Kotański paid homage to him in Rome.

    Latin Mass, the Pope's clampdown: protests on the way

    While a schism is underway in Germany, there are protests against the Latin Mass inside the Vatican. Rumours of a restrictive revision of Summorum Pontificum have filtered through the latest Italian Bishops' Conference assembly after the Pope's speech. Confirmations of this are coming from France. It would be a slap in the face of Benedict XVI who signed the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum, but behind the scenes tug-of-war is happening between the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and the Vatican Secretariat of State. Faithful from well-formed groups supporting the Latin Mass stand ready to descend on Rome and for what would be a clamorous protest.

    German schism widens: Communion to Protestants

    In Germany open warfare is now being waged to break down the bastions of faith and doctrine. After the blessings to homosexuals and women “priests” preaching, it is now the turn of so-called intercommunion. The leaders of the Eucharistic committees take part in the Protestant Eucharistic Service and the Lutheran leaders in the Catholic Mass. Both approach their respective communions under the eyes of the Bishop of Limburg. In the background there are accusations against St John Paul II and the attitude of the Holy See, which has condemned the blessings of gays. Meanwhile, with this huge liturgical abuse, the divine law has been violated.

    German schismatics disgrace the Mass as Rome turns a blind eye

    Women playing priests, rainbow flags hanging from the altar, a punk-styled statue of Our Lady. Following a Vatican 10 May statement forbidding the blessing of homosexual unions, now forbidden preaching and blasphemous Masses are taking place in Germany. In some of the country's most prominent churches, 12 women are now preaching, a clear numeric reference to the first apostles. The Daily Compass has gathered evidence from a “Mass” held in Essen, proof that an abomination of desolation currently underway in Germany. Meanwhile, has Rome turned a blind eye?

    St Joseph, Patron of a Happy Death (the true good death)

    With secularisation, the Christian meaning of death has been lost, in favour of a materialist conception that sees in death the end of everything and deceives with euthanasia. St Joseph, the patron saint of a happy death because he expired in the arms of Jesus and Mary, reminds us instead of the need to live and die in the grace of God, giving us a very topical teaching in times of Covid.

    Bishop Ipolt: some German clergy are confused

    "In Germany the entire Christian anthropology is on the brink. It is regrettable that St. John Paul II's  theology of the body of is hardly known in Germany. We also need a new language and a new profile for our ethical positions in order to guide people and save them from confusion." This is what Wolfgang Ipolt, the Bishop of Görlitz has to say.

    Canon law denies Communion to abortionist politicians

    Regarding the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith on Holy Communion to abortionist politicians, what does Canon Law say? Excommunicated persons, among others, are not admitted to Communion. Also excommunicated are those who collaborate in abortion with a necessary contribution: hence abortionist politicians. Who, moreover, obstinately persist in a grave and manifest sin.
