    Fr Hunwicke's Mutual Enrichment ^ | November 6, 2014 | Fr John Hunwicke
    In the Daily Telegraph of November 4 this year appeared a very jolly story about an Austrian woman who had incurred excommunication for purporting to have been ordained to the Priesthood (God bless her, she has retaliated by now claiming the Episcopate!!). The journalist began his story thus: "Excommunication is traditionally reserved by Catholicism for the very worst of sinners and is a sanction rarely invoked today". Well, the dear old Torygraph has failed to keep herself up-to-date on that subject. Excommunication is, for some bishops, the Fashionable Fad in today's caring, compassionate Catholic Church of Pope Francis! Excommunication, even,...

    All Africa ^ | 15 July 2013 | Wambugu Kanyi
    The Reformed Catholic Church which is spearheaded by married priests plans to have an African pope. The church bishops who included Peter Njogu of Mt Kenya region diocese and John Karimi of Kirinyaga said on Saturday they are planning to have one centre of power in Africa where they will install a pope. "We may not necessary call him pope like the Roman Catholic but we may get another name similar to that. Our church is growing very fast and it is the high time we Africans have one centre of power in Africa," said Karimi. The bishops said since...
  • {Catholic Caucus] Adieu SSPX

    06/28/2013 2:09:10 PM PDT · by Teófilo · 37 replies
    Brethren, Peace and Good to all of you. As you may know from most Catholic media, the Priestly Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), founded by the dissident traditionalist French Bishop Marcel Lefebvre, has announced its definitive separation from the Catholic Church. I don't have to go into the details and for that I refer you to the news report. However, I will share my opinion with you: even when I prayed for a miracle, and granted the SSPX the benefit of the doubt, I never really believed they were actig in good faith. You can read my consistent doubts...

    Cyprus Mail ^ | 10/19/09 | Charles Charalambous
    BANNER-WAVING Orthodox protestors yesterday put a stop to a Catholic wedding ceremony at Ayios Yiorgios church in Chlorakas after shouting a string of abuse at the priest and others in the church. The protestors had gathered for the second day outside a conference of the Joint Commission for Theological Dialogue between the Roman Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church. The small church is opposite the venue. Protestors were incensed when the Catholic priest, who has permission from the Church of Cyprus to hold ceremonies, asked them to leave. Instead they heckled him to leave. “We peacefully call on you to...

    Traditionalists Unite Against Blasphemy Remnant Press Release www.remnantnewspaper.com Dear fellow Catholics, I talked with Mr. John Watkins (coordinator for the Latin Mass community at Blessed Sacrament) this morning concerning the awful event planned for Sunday at 4:00 p.m. http://www.kansascitykansan.com/articles/2006/01/04/news/local/news13.txt They (The Latin Mass Community) are asking for our help. They would like us to join them in the spirit of peacefully consoling our Blessed Lord for the abomination that is scheduled for Sunday at 4:00 p.m. and to demonstrate to the Archdiocese that this type of blasphemous "musical performance" is not Catholic and cannot be tolerated in a Catholic place...

But even they were shocked by what vandals did to statues of Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary at the Fraternite Notre Dame monastery on New Year's Eve. Someone spray-painted "Killer," "KKK," "666," "Go away" and "Leave" on the figures. They wrote an obscene message in snow at the base of one statue and stole an...

    Dear Friends and Benefactors, Several of our priories were privileged during this past November to receive a visit from our Superior General, Bishop Fellay, who gave an update regarding the Church crisis and dealings with Rome. One topic he touched on and which remains a stumbling block for many Catholics is the question of obedience. Indeed, most of us have been threatened at one time with the phrase: "You are being disobedient to the Pope." Liberal Catholics will claim that the one thing necessary to remain Catholic is an absolute obedience even to Liberal Church superiors. Conservatives will compromise and...

    While they are "Peter-ing" out to be sure, they (or their old diatribes) can still be found on the Internet here and there. Thus our Annual Sectarian Spotlight: For the real thing, there is the counterfeit. Satan makes sure of it in the Catholic and spiritual realms. In Catholic circles these are those who substitute private interpretation over the teachings of the living magisterium of the Catholic Church. Listing some of the more notorious untrustworthy guides here may help you to scratch off what is at least a waste of time and can be passed over, whether on the Internet...

    No Room for Christ at Saint Patrick's Cathedral by Thomas A. Droleskey September 11, 2002, will be remembered for a long time as a day of outrage. Outrage, that is, on the part of Catholics who still cling to the old-fashioned notion that the entirety of human history revolves around the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity made Man, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and the Church He created upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope. For the Archbishop of New York, Edward Cardinal Egan, did not let pass from his lips even once the Holy Name of the...
