Pro-vax Vatican creates a kit to indoctrinate priests and the faithful
UNWORTHY PROPAGANDA

Pro-vax Vatican creates a kit to indoctrinate priests and the faithful

The Church subjugated to vaccinism trots out, through the Dicastery of Cardinal Turkson, a kit on anti-Covid vaccines to transform the ambons of our churches into places of vaccinist propaganda, providing guidance for homilies, in order to turn every priest into an official of the Super-Ministry of Health, to put themselves at the service of the main political ideology of the moment and present it as evangelical. The kit, truly embarrassing in its clichés, exposes a sycophantic Church that spouts about things it doesn’t know and panders to those in charge. Alas!


No more Justice and Peace in the Vatican
SOCIAL DOCTRINE OF THE CHURCH

No more Justice and Peace in the Vatican

The Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace has not only been absorbed by the new Dicastery for Integral Human Development, but its legacy has been erased altogether. What used to be a feather in John Paul II's cap for promoting the Church's social doctrine has been transformed into a sort of welfare advocacy.

Germany, 10 May: the schism begins with gay unions

Already 2,500 German parish priests and deacons have signed up for the day of the blessing of all lovers, including homosexual couples. And some bishops have already made known that do not intend to impose any sanctions on the "rebel" priests. This is the gauntlet that the German Church has thrown down to Rome after its "No" to the blessing of gay unions.


The Shroud that wrapped Jesus: the latest discoveries
INTERVIEW / MARINELLI

The Shroud that wrapped Jesus: the latest discoveries

The Shroud is a relic for believers, while for scientists it is a mysterious object that animates their continuous debate. For years Emanuela Marinelli has been dealing with it, as an expert but also as a believer who reminds us of the history of the cloth and the latest discoveries, indicating the Crucifix made by Monsignor Giulio Ricci as one of the most "truthful" representations.


Why workers must look to St Joseph
REDEMPTORIS CUSTOS / 5

Why workers must look to St Joseph

Contrary to ideologies (Marxism first and foremost) that have instrumentalised workers, the Church’s Magisterium teaches that work must be done according to God’s will. In the Christian sense, it makes man a participant in the work of the Creator and in the plan of salvation. This is why Pius XII pointed to Saint Joseph as a model.


Poverty in a communist sauce is not Christianity
DISTORTION

Poverty in a communist sauce is not Christianity

On Mercy Sunday Pope Francis delivered a homily about how early Christians in the Acts of the Apostles pooled their wealth. The media then "flavoured up" what the pope preached by saying that anyone who does not share their possessions with the poor is not a true Christian. Certainly Christians have a moral obligation to help the needy, but Christianity calls for detachment of the heart from material goods, but it is not a call to poverty. St. Thomas teaches us his evaluation of  "what is necessary."

Hans Küng, the theologian who sowed the seeds for Vatican III

The Swiss theologian Hans Küng has died. His name often made front page headlines when he fired hard at Catholic doctrine. A Hegelian by training, Küng wanted the ecumenical and democratic reform of the Church. While he sowed in silence, there are fruits we reap today: many think that we are already in the era of the Vatican Council III that he dreamed of.


“John Paul II and I, what joy the cause for his sainthood”
INTERVIEW / THE POSTULATOR ODER

“John Paul II and I, what joy the cause for his sainthood”

“Among the witnesses there were both lay people and priests, they all spoke of Wojtyla as ‘our Pope’. It is striking that they were people from all walks of life and from all over the world, but with a deeply rooted opinion of his saintliness.” The Compass interviews Monsignor Sławomir Oder, returning to Poland after 36 years in Rome and well-known postulator of the cause for canonisation of John Paul II, whose 16th anniversary of death fell on 2 April.


God saved us from Covid. He is better than any vaccine
TESTIMONY

God saved us from Covid. He is better than any vaccine

Vaccines have become part a new religion. It is a religion with its own sacraments (hygiene, social distancing), saints (vaccinated people), commandments (Thou shall immunize thyself; Thou shall not covet your neighbor’s vaccination). Yet it is a false religion. This is the opinion of a person – a nun –  who was on oxygen for a month and a half with very severe Covid-related pneumonia. Yet, her entire Shalom Community was saved thanks to the prayers and assistance of a volunteer nurse. Let everyone choose freely whether or not to get vaccinated, but leave us free to live our faith and, especially, not to adhere to any deviant form of faith.


Good has triumphed: Christ is risen!
EASTER OF RESURRECTION

Good has triumphed: Christ is risen!

The Resurrection is the event that assures us that human life is journeying towards another life: journeying towards the Promised Land! Today we are as if on a bridge: we cannot build our house on the bridge, we cannot base everything on today, rather we must live journeying; we must live warming ourselves with the hope of expectation. Without the Resurrection of Christ, it is not possible to explain what happened around Christ and after Christ.


In the night a Light is turned on
TOWARD THE RESURRECTION

In the night a Light is turned on

Life is this passage from darkness to light: a passage that we are all experiencing. A message has come to us, a piece of news: Christ has told us that life leads to God who is the Father. But if Christ is risen, life has a whole new meaning. Every day is Easter: because every day is a journey towards God; every day something old in us dies and we take a step towards life.


Saying yes to the love that redeemed the world
GOOD FRIDAY

Saying yes to the love that redeemed the world

Who then is the Christian? The Christian is a person who lives by faith (cf. Rom 1:17), that is, who has regulated their entire existence on the only possibility opened up to him by Jesus Christ, obedient for us all even to the cross (cf. Phil 2:8): the possibility of participating in the obedient yes that redeems the world. The mystery of Christ passes into the Christian, who must have within him the Spirit of Christ that impels him to offer himself freely and unconditionally for the salvation of the world accepting serenely persecution and division.
