    Developments & Reactions This post continues our coverage of the ongoing ecclesiastical Chernobyl unleashed by the accusations of the former Vatican nuncio to the United States, “Abp.” Carlo Viganò, which were first published on Aug. 25 and have the potential not only to bring an end to the Francis “pontificate” but even to throw the entire Vatican II Sect into unprecedented chaos: Friday, Sep. 14, 2018 Developments In his homily for the day, Francis delivered Part 3 of his “Great Accuser” theme — video report here “Cardinal” Donald Wuerl’s homily for the opening of his “season of healing” in Washington,...

    VATICAN CITY, September 18, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – To Archbishop Carlo Viganò’s allegations, Pope Francis will say not a word. But on the theme of the Great Accuser, he has preached four times. This morning, September 18, after preaching on the Gospel of the day – in which Jesus raises the son of the Widow of Nain (Luke 7:11-17) – Francis shifted from thoughts on Christ’s compassion to those concerning His silence before the “Great Accuser.” According to the Vatican’s own news website, Vatican News, Francis believes Christ’s silence was itself a form of compassion. “The Pope brought up that it...

    DETROIT (ChurchMilitant.com) - Young priests in the United States are voicing their concerns about the sex abuse crisis and the upcoming Synod on Youth.  Eight priests signed their names to an open letter published online by First Things on Wednesday. Addressing the bishops who will be attending the Synod, the letter states, "We wish to express our concern about the unfolding crisis of sexual abuse in the Church, especially the Church in the United States.

    While the eyes of most of the faithful who follow Church news remain fixated on the near-constant drumbeat of new information about Clerical Abuse Scandal 2.0, another papal document has dropped, and in it, another likely time bomb.This morning, Pope Francis issued the Apostolic Constitution Epicopalis Communio (EC) – “Episcopal Communion” – which aims to “reform” the synodal process. The document, available thus far only in Italian, makes changes that should be of familiar concern to anyone who paid attention to the 2014 & 2015 synods on the Family. From Chris Altieri’s commentary today at the Catholic Herald: The role of the General Secretary...

    ANALYSIS ROME, September 18, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) — Have the jocular images and low-key statements of US Bishops following their meeting with Pope Francis last week set back their attempts to address the grave situation in the Church, especially the handling of sexual abuse cases by bishops? The details that have been revealed of the bishops’ meeting with Francis last Thursday give no indication that they addressed the extent of the McCarrick coverup or the need for an investigation into the troubling allegations against the Pope contained in Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò’s testimony.  Given Viganò’s widely accepted character and credibility,...

    The new law appears to combine the Synod’s teaching authority with that of the Roman PontiffPope Francis issued an Apostolic Constitution on Tuesday morning, which introduces significant reforms to the structure of the Synod of Bishops. Titled Episcopalis communio — “Episcopal communion” — the document is composed of a six-page introduction articulated in ten numbered sections, and a 27-article dispositive part.The introduction talks a good deal about collegiality, broad consultation with all the faithful of every state of life in the Church, and the general spirit of synodal collaboration: Although in its composition it appears as an essentially episcopal organism,...

    NEW YORK (ChurchMilitant.com) - Church Militant has confirmed that longtime vicar general Msgr. Greg Mustaciuolo will no longer serve in his position in the New York archdiocese, and will be replaced by another priest. Saint Gregory Barbarigo Parish confirmed that Fr. Joseph Lamorte will be taking over the position of vicar general effective Oct. 1.  Although the archdiocese has not publicly given any reason for the abrupt change, inside sources confirm Mustaciuolo's removal is directly related to the launch of the New York attorney general's investigation into the Catholic Church — a move long feared by the New York archdiocese.   Inside sources confirm Mustaciuolo's...

    ROME, September 17, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) — Cardinal Donald Wuerl arrived in Rome today, just one week after telling priests of the archdiocese of Washington that he intended “in the very near future, to go to Rome to meet with our Holy Father about the resignation I presented nearly three years ago, on November 12, 2015.” The Cardinal’s flight touched down at Rome’s Fiumicino airport this morning shortly before 8 a.m. local time, sources confirmed.  Last week, in a letter dated Sept. 11, Cardinal Wuerl, 78, told priests of the Washington archdiocese that: “It was clear that some decision, sooner rather than later,...

    ATLANTA (ChurchMilitant.com) - Celebrity Jesuit Fr. James Martin is heading to Georgia, courtesy of pro-gay Abp. Wilton Gregory of Atlanta, Georgia.

    The Federalist ^ | 09/17/2018 | By Willis L. Krumholz and Robert Delahunty
    The rapidly unfolding crisis in the Roman Catholic Church is not a matter of concern to Catholics alone. Its true dimensions have yet to be measured, but we think it will prove to be a crisis on the scale of the Protestant Reformation, which began just over 500 years ago — an earthquake of 9.5 on the Richter scale. If so, resolution of the crisis will take decades to work through.Resolution and absolution will require serious effort, and most likely require deep, structural reforms. Even if we are mistaken, the Catholic crisis is of such a magnitude that Christians...

    A private Christian college in Pennsylvania is under fire after a former student took to Facebook to explain how he was turned away from finishing his degree because he is gay. Clarks Summit University, formerly known as Baptist Bible College, has defended its decision not to readmit a former student Gary Campbell. Campbell applied to be re-enrolled at the school this fall so that he could finally finish his last six credits and earn a degree 15 years after he left the university and eventually joined the U.S. Navy. At the end of August, Campbell asked his friends on Facebook...

    Here's another collection of my tweets to my Bishop, mostly about --- what shall we call it? --- The Situation. These won't all be recyclable, but I hope some of them will. Feel free to use any of them. It's just tiny way, I suppose, to offer filial correction or support. We must obey God, not men --- as our first Pope, St. Peter said. God bless Bishop Strickland. Abp Vigano had the courage to speak up clearly and pay up personally. Let the Pope answer Vigano's Testimony if he can. The silence -- Omerta --- is not going to...
