    Francis: “those who want to help me, pursue the Council in the Churchˮ “If you want to help me, act to carry forward the Council in the Church. And help me with your prayer. I need a lot of prayer”. So Francis responded to a young Jesuit who asked him how to support the Pope in his mission. Civiltà Cattolica published the transcript of the one-hour dialogue that took place in Vilnius with Jesuits from the Baltic countries during the recent papal visit.   “I don’t know what to ask for - Francis replied- but what we need to do today...

    After psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of attempting to rape her in high school, news reports have characterized the culture of Georgetown Preparatory School as "booze-soaked," even "misogynistic." Georgetown Prep, Kavanaugh's all-boys school, responded to these characterizations in a powerful statement on Wednesday. The school admitted that teaching young men to live lives of virtue is difficult, but denied the ugly insinuations that Georgetown Prep has fostered a bad culture of drunkenness and sexual assault. "The temptations, and the failings, presented in these stories are not unique to Georgetown Prep. The problems and abuses...

    CINCINNATI, Ohio (ChurchMilitant.com) - A Jesuit priest in Rome is accusing an Ohio prosecutor of grave sin for seeking the death penalty for a convicted serial killer.  Father Paul Mueller, superior of the Jesuit community at the Vatican Observatory, wrote a letter to Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph Deters accusing him of violating Catholic teaching on capital punishment. "The teaching of the Church is clear: In defending society against evil, it is morally unacceptable to make use of the evil of the death penalty," claimed Mueller. He went on to accuse Deters of the sin of pride and advised him to "chat with a good confessor."...

    "What has changed is the (Bergolio's) tone, approach and language," he (Martin) said."His five most famous words may be 'Who am I to judge?,' which were first said in response to a question about gay priests, and were later expanded to include all gays."Francis is the first pope, for that matter, to even use the word 'gay'."Martin continued: "I would not categorise him as a 'progressive' but simply as a compassionate man."Pope Francis is trying to reach out to those on the margins both in society -- refugees, migrants, the poor -- and in the Church."And in the Church...

    Jesuit Supports Murdering Babies – Bishop Plays Scandal Down Jesuit Father Mario Serrano demonstrated on July 15 in Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic) at a leftwing march to legalise abortion. Serrano called the killing of children on Twitter (July 13, 15) a “just cause” stating that during the march he felt “close to the Jesus who loves, accompanies and does not condemn people in extreme situations” [including pedophiles, rassists and terrorists?]. Auxiliary bishop Jesús Castro Marte of Santo Domingo called Serrano’s statement a “private position”. Talking to Diario Libre (July 15), the bishop only asked Serrano to “reflect on what he...

    NEW YORK, June 4, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) -- There’s no need for Catholics to shy way from gay pride month, according to Father James Martin, because the fundamental purpose of the events related to these celebrations is to allow LGBT people to be proud of who they are after years of persecution. Martin’s tweets, coming early on the morning of June 2, follow a tweet from Bishop Thomas Tobin of Providence, Rhode Island, the preceding afternoon of June 1 about how Catholics should be wary of pride month events. Bishop Tobin cautioned Catholics about pride month events – which are often...

    In this April 24, 2018 photo, demonstrators protest in honor of those who have died during anti-government protests in Managua, Nicaragua. Since protests directed at the Sandinista government in Nicaragua began in April, the Jesuit-run University of Central America has been a hub of student activism and, as a result, a target of violence. On Sunday, Father Jose Alberto Idiaquez, S.J., the rector of U.C.A., condemned the latest attack on his university as government-sponsored. In a statement addressed to the Nicaraguan people, Father Idiaquez announced that U.C.A.’s campus in Nicaragua’s capital city of Managua was attacked on May 27 at...

    Jesuits don’t have to worry about ‘Catholic identity’ at public universitiesWith many Jesuit colleges and universities struggling to find enough Jesuits to fill roles, Fr. Jack Bentz, S.J.  wrote a counter-intuitive piece for America Magazine arguing that the Jesuit order, which is seeking a boost in vocations, should increasingly minister at public universities which typically have larger student bodies.One of the advantages to foregoing Catholic education, according to Fr. Bentz, is that campus ministers don’t have to worry about things like “Catholic identity.” In fact, Fr. Bentz says he has found “greater freedom to serve the students” at Boise State...

    According to an article appearing in El Pais, the largest newspaper in Spain, Pope Francis said to a male sex abuse victim that: “God made you gay.” The comments were allegedly made during a meeting between Pope Francis and the victims of Chilean Catholic sex-offender priest Fernando Karadima. One of the men abused by the priest, former seminarian Juan Carlos Cruz, described his meeting with Pope Francis. Jesuit priest James Martin posted a link to the interview on his social media accounts which included a translation of one comment made by the Pope to Cruz: In his recently published book, “Building...

    The young Bergoglio is an assiduous reader of Fessard’s work La dialectique des “Exercices spirituels” de saint Ignace de Loyola. In it, the French Jesuit showed how Ignatian spirituality was determined by a polar tension between God and man, grace and freedom, the infinitely great and the infinitely small. From here rises the “tensioned thinking” of the future Pope. It is this thought that explains Bergoglio’s interest in the polar dialectic of Romano Guardini, when, in 1986, he went to Germany to do his doctoral thesis. Since then, Guardini has become his point of reference. This idea of polarity, which...

    As we reported on 23 March, Father Bernd Hagenkord, S.J., the high-ranking managing editor of the official Vatican news service, Vatican News – which had been supervised by Monsignor Dario Viganň until the “Lettergate” scandal – claimed in a comment under his own blog post concerning the Viganň scandal that the “partial publication” of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI’s letter was “agreed upon” with Benedict himself. In that post, he tried to downplay the whole Lettergate scandal, claiming that no one had been really hurt in this minor incident, with Monsignor Viganó just making a “mistake.” Later on, the German bishops’ news...

    In a recent interview with CNN about his so-called LGBT ministry, Jesuit priest Fr. James Martin expressed discontent with how the Holy Father has responded to sex abuse.  In a televised interview on Tuesday, the pro-gay Jesuit celebrity priest spoke with CNN's Christiane Amanpour. She asked Fr. Martin about the priest sex abuse scandal. She noted that traditionalists are discontent with the pope but so are liberals.  Father Martin agreed that Pope Francis has fallen short of handling sex abuse, especially regarding bishops who cover up abusive priests. He said, "You have priests who are removed immediately, but what do you with bishops? And...

    In 1968, Jorge Mario Bergoglio was a novice in the Society of Jesus. And now that he is pope he is making no mystery of what he thinks about the “social upheaval,” his own words, of that year which has become legendary. Some of it is already known to the ambassadors accredited to the Holy See, who in the discourse that Francis addressed to them at the beginning of this year had thrown back into their faces precisely what the pope maintains to be the perverse effects of ’68. It was the first time that Bergoglio had his say over...
