    Cardinal Marx Refuses to Accept Vatican Ruling The press speaker of the German bishops has commented on the refusal of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith to back the [sacrilegious] German proposal to give Holy Communion to non-Catholics. The press statement recalls that during a May meeting in Rome a delegation of German bishops was told to find an "unanimous" agreement regarding Protestant Communion, adding, "The Chairman [Cardinal Marx] is therefore surprised that even before finding such a unanimous agreement, this letter has now arrived from Rome." Marx is not ready to accept the ruling. According to the...

    The Pope cannot abdicate the Petrine Ministry in favor of a synodal method of Church governance on questions such as intercommunion, a respected theologian and former consulter to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith during Benedict XVI’s pontificate has said. Writing yesterday in La Nuova Bussola Quotidiana, Italian Monsignor Nicola Bux said the Catholic Church is “hierarchical, not synodal” and “pastoral issues are resolved only if the ‘meal’ is made of true doctrine.” Msgr. Bux’s comments come in response to a recent interview with Cardinal Walter Kasper on intercommunion and the German bishops’ controversial proposal to allow a Protestant who is...

    Teen Vogue recently published a controversial article titled, “Who is Karl Marx: Meet the Anti-Capitalist Scholar,” and promoted it on Twitter, saying that “The political philosopher turned 200-years-old on May 5, but his ideas can still teach us about the past and present.” Author Danielle Corcione vilifies “rich people” and “bosses” in the piece, while gushing that through The Communist Manifesto, Marx “inspired millions of people to resist oppressive political leaders and spark political revolutions all over the world.” Corcione interviewed a high school teacher and former professor about how they incorporate Marx’s teachings into their class curriculum.

    Cardinal Reinhard Marx, the head of the German bishops, is now opening up to the idea of different German dioceses having different rules concerning the possible admittance of Protestant spouses of Catholics to Holy Communion. Another bishop just said, moreover, that Pope Francis seems not to see in the new German intercommunion guidelines a “threat to the Faith.”Last Saturday, the German Katholikentag (a national Catholic gathering with some 50,000 participants) in Münster came to an end. Now, at the beginning of this week, the statements of the participating German bishops concerning the ongoing intercommunion debate are being widely reported in...

    Much has been made of the May 3rd meeting that took place in Rome between certain members of the German Bishops Conference and representatives of the Holy See to discuss the former’s controversial so-called “pastoral handout” allowing the Protestant spouse of a Catholic to receive Holy Communion under certain Bergoglian conditions.According to the German Bishops’ news service:A precondition is that the Protestant partner “after a deep discernment in a spiritual conversation with the priest or another pastoral worker comes to the decision of conscience to affirm the Faith of the Catholic Church, as well as to end a ‘serious spiritual...

    Several weeks back, Pope Francis was criticized for reportedly claiming "there is no Hell" -- a claim he did not deny -- and now his own newspaper at the Vatican, L'Osservatore Romano, has published an article that applauds German Cardinal Reinhard Marx for his praise of the founder of Communism, Karl Marx. In the May 6 article, headlined Marx in controluce (Closer to Marx), Cardinal Reinhard Marx speaks proudly of Karl Marx, who wrote the Communist Manifesto, and whose teaching has been denounced by the Catholic Church and multiple Popes since the 19th century.

    Peter Seewald, a journalist who published several interview–books with Pope Benedict XVI, strongly criticizes Cardinal Reinhard Marx for his recent public rebuke of Markus Söder, the governor of Bavaria, Germany, for ordering the public display of crosses in public buildings. He is joined now by two other prominent German journalists. Only recently, we had reported on Peter Seewald’s strong indignation about Cardinal Marx’ decision to close down a Bavarian historic Abbey which otherwise could have been kept alive. Seewald pointed out that all the wealth of that Abbey has now been transferred to the hands of the Archdiocese of Munich,...

    In the previous article, I mentioned Blessed Sr. Maria Restitua Kafka in the context of Cardinal Reinhold Marx's latest demonstration of his un-Catholicity. As you know, His Eminence has railed against the Bavarian state for ordering all official buildings to display a Crucifix. Moving onto more hopeful and positive things, the faithful witness of Blessed Sr. Kafka is a beautiful example upon which all Catholics could fruitfully meditate; thus deriving encouragement, strength and a desire to emulate such heroic virtue for God's greater glory. Quite simply, because of her deep love for Christ, Sr. Kafka was resolute in her...

    "It gives us a very special, secret pleasure to see how unaware the people around us are of what is really happening to them." When he said this, Hitler could have been speaking about America today. The "secret" in Nazi Germany and democratic America is that minds were and are getting washed with propaganda from government and "official" channels of information and news. By mid-century, the American press was virtually a branch of government, and it was a secret only to uninformed citizens that the public was being hoodwinked. American labor organizer and former general secretary of the Communist Party...

    Mexicans love mayonnaise. They ordered a huge shipment and a ship sailed from Europe with a full shipment of Mayonnaise. As it was crossing the Bermuda Triangle, it mysteriously began sinking. The captain wired the shipping company in Europe, "we have run into a serious problem in the Bermuda Triangle, and ship is sinking". The captain was not good in Spanish, so he wired port authorities in Mexico, "Sinko De Mayo". Later on it was changed to Cinco de Mayo!

    Ahead of Karl Marx’s 200th birthday on Saturday, Xi Jinping referred to the German philosopher as “the greatest thinker of modern times,” calling his theories on communism a tool for China to “win the future.” According to the official Xinhua News Agency, he said Marx’s name was “still respected all over the world” and that “his theory shines with the brilliant light of truth.” He also claimed that putting “Marxism onto the flag of the Chinese Communist party was totally correct.” […] Xi has instructed all party members to read Marxist works and to adopt Marxist theories as a “way...

    UK Daily Mail ^ | May 5, 2018 | Dominic Sandbrook
    Two hundred years ago today, the most controversial thinker of the modern age was born in the German city of Trier. When, on May 5, 1818, Heinrich and Henriette Marx welcomed their little boy into the world, they could never have imagined the utopian hopes and blood-soaked horrors that would become associated with his name. Two centuries later, the very words 'Karl Marx' still carry an unmistakable charge. No modern intellectual, no economist or philosopher can match the combustible power of the rabbi's grandson who fled into poverty-stricken exile in leafy North London. Most of the regimes based on Marx's...

    As Germany prepares to mark Karl Marx’s 200th birth anniversary, the revolutionary philosopher’s legacy remains divisive more than a quarter century after the fall of the Berlin Wall. With scars from the Cold War still fresh, people from capitalist former West Germany and the once communist East are of two minds about the 19th-century philosopher. Some hail Marx as a visionary scholar who foretold the ills of the market economy, while others revile him for inspiring Stalinist regimes. In the western town of Trier, the icon’s birthplace which is planning 600 events for his bicentenary, it is not lost on...

    <p>SEOUL, South Korea — On May 5, 1818, in the southern German town of Trier, in the picturesque wine-growing region of the Moselle Valley, Karl Marx was born. At the time Trier was one-tenth the size it is today, with a population of around 12,000. According to one of Marx’s recent biographers, Jürgen Neffe, Trier is one of those towns where “although everyone doesn’t know everyone, many know a lot about many.”</p>

    Cardinal Marx, Karl Marx Necessary For Catholic Social Teaching Munich Cardinal Reinhard Marx was “impressed” by Karl Marx’ Communist Manifesto, at least for its “great language”. Talking to Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (April 29), Cardinal Reinhard Marx claimed that the analyses of Marx contributed “decisively” to the emergence of the Catholic social teaching. However, Karl Marx was a prominent representative of communism. The Catholic social teaching was written in contrast to Communism. Karl Marx wanted to end religion, family and property. He was the first Western [non-]thinker who used the term “holocaust” to call for a genocide of people. Marx wanted...

    Cardinal Reinhard Marx has said directing all state buildings to hang crosses amounts to "expropriating the cross in the name of the state." Bavarian Premier Markus Söder sparked nationwide criticism for the move. The head of the German Bishops' Conference has sharply criticized the premier of the southern German state of Bavaria for ordering Christian crosses to be hung in all state buildings.Cardinal Reinhard Marx told German daily newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung on Monday that Premier Markus Söder's order had sparked public "division, unrest and animosity."Söder issued the directive — set to enter into force on June 1 — on Wednesday.

    German Liberalism is a Cancer in the Church Cancer: a terrible disease, with which we are, as many of you, terribly familiar. Therefore, we do not make use of it as a metaphor unadvisedly. Since the age of the Council, and before it, Liberal Catholicism of the German extraction has been a life-threatening cancer metastasizing throughout Holy Mother Church. A Pole and a good German tried to reverse the disease, but the deep pockets of the German Bishops who funded the "St. Gallen Mafia" got what they paid for in 2013: increasing confusion throughout the Church. Their first Trojan Horse...

    In the March 22 letter, published in full below, the seven bishops say they “do not consider” the German bishops’ decision on Feb. 20 to allow Protestant spouses to receive Holy Communion in some cases to be “right” because they do not believe the issue to be a pastoral one but rather a “question of the faith and unity of the Church which is not subject to a vote.”  The letter is signed by Cardinal Rainer Woelki of Cologne, Archbishop Ludwig Schick of Bamberg, Bishop Gregor Hanke of Eichstätt, Bishop Konrad Zdarsa of Augsburg, Bishop Wolfgang Ipolt of Görlitz, Bishop Rudolf Voderholzer...
