    Mary's divine Motherhood that gives way to redemption

    When we think of the mother of God we tend to "shift" to our level of experience, reducing Mary to  a carnal mother. Instead, the Church teaches that it is precisely by our asserting her title of Dei Genetrix that we can defend the truth of the two natures of the One Divine Person. Moreover, Mary's "yes" to the Incarnation includes her "yes" to participate in the redemptive work of her Son. That is why she is Co-Redeemer and not merely a most virtuous woman.

    • HOLY CHRISTMAS

    «The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light»

    «Christmas is an event of light, it is the feast of light: in the Child of Bethlehem the primordial light once more shines in humanity’s heaven and dissipates the clouds of sin. The radiance of God’s definitive triumph appears on the horizon of history in order to offer a new future of hope to a pilgrim people». We propose the homily of Saint John Paul II at Christmas Midnigh Mass, 2001.

    Joseph’s marriage to Mary, a mystery of salvation

    From his marriage to Mary, Joseph derives his participation in “her sublime dignity” (Leo XIII) and his paternal rights over Jesus. The two holy spouses, both virgins, by their obedience to divine will and their acceptance of the Saviour, become the couple which, unlike Adam and Eve, “constitutes the summit from which holiness spreads over the whole earth” (Paul VI). A true catechesis on the family must start from their marriage.

    Pope’s message for peace 2021, some positive aspects

    In his message for the World Day of Peace, Pope Francis, in addition to some of the social themes he has repeated several times, departs somewhat from previous documents by placing greater emphasis on the primacy of God, and with an explicit reference to the Church’s social doctrine.

    The “alien” Crib in the Vatican is an expression of the New Church

    The ugly and questionable Vatican Crib: the message is clear, explicit, and intentional. It is no longer the sacred representation of an event that took place, but the pretext to say other things that are pressing to the world - especially to the cultural mainstream - and to today's society.

    • ENCULTURATION

    A clever way to impose an Amazonian liturgy

    The Roman Missal in the Zairean rite is the first one to be enculturated and lends itself to becoming a precursor to a future Amazonian rite. There are two risks in this undertaking: introducing pagan elements and producing a new liturgy inspired by the objectives of Church politics as opposed to the Church’s mission.  On this matter, Benedict XVI warned, "A liturgy is not born by means of decrees."

    Advent. Christ knocks at the door of our hearts

    In the same way Saint John the Baptist prepared the way for the coming of the Messiah, after four thousand years of expectancy, so the four weeks of Advent are our opportunity to receive Jesus into our life today. The Lord never stops knocking on the doors of our hearts and by welcoming Him now we can rejoice fully with Him at the end of time. Advent calls us to purification through prayer and sincere confession, so that we may be filled with the grace of Christ.

    • THE ECONOMY OF FRANCIS

    There’s no room for Christ in the “Assisi Accord”

    The three-day virtual Assisi "Economy of Francis” convention concluded with abundant slogans and the decision to start the process of finding new tools to overcome the world’s economic and social distortions. It was an entirely horizontal, worldly perspective, as echoed in Pope Francis’s final video message, overturning the vision of integral human development set forth by Paul VI in Populorum Progressio and by Benedict XVI in Caritas in Veritate.

    Attack against John Paul II: that’s the purpose of the McCarrick Report

    From the National Catholic Reporter to the New York Times: the campaign has been launched to discredit St. John Paul II and cast doubts on his holiness. In fact, the error made in McCarrick’s appointment as archbishop of Washington, D. C., in the absence of proof substantiating the rumors, was induced by the opinion of two trusted advisors. This is what the Report states. Oddly enough, this circumstance is ignored in the synopsis of the McCarrick Report. Thereby the Vatican Report makes the cultural operation against St. John Paul II all the easier.

    Leukaemia, an Angel, and a family saved by Mary

    The Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is already happening now, in each individual heart. As the story of Simona demonstrates, by saying yes to the Blessed Mother, she saw heaven revealed on earth, not only with miracles of conversion and healing within herself but also in her entire family, like the time that an Angel saved her youngest child. But before seeing the light of a new life, Simona had to walk the Way of the Cross, right to the very end.

    McCarrick, the gay lobby scores again

    The McCarrick report reveals a substantial degree of tolerance towards homosexual conduct by the clergy, which is punished only if minors are the persons abused. This report also ignores the fact that the McCarrick case is only the tip of the iceberg of a power system controlled by the gay lobby.

    Hurrah for Biden the Catholic: now the Church accepts abortion

    Upon the American Catholic bishops sending a note of congratulations to abortion advocate Joe Biden, the Church now accepts abortion. One’s position for or against life is no longer a criterion for evaluating political behaviour. In short: abortion is no longer an issue for the Catholic Church. Today, we must sadly take note of this. Whoever has lived through the era of John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae and the battle against the "culture of death" will definitely feel a chill run down their spine.
