Social Media and Catholic Bishops

Michael Voris explains the importance of the NEW Catholic Media.
There is no doubt now that social media (blogs, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) are what rescued the 2014 Extraordinary Synod on the Family from a clearly heterodox direction. High ranking orthodox prelates within the synod realised, after the publication of the midterm relatio, that the synod process had been hijacked, and was being directed (orchestrated and planned) from the top-down, in an attempt to 'rail-road' an agenda that was counter to the historic and orthodox teaching of the one, holy, catholic and apostolic faith. The orthodox bishops within the synod quickly realised that they were surrounded on all sides, with the orchestrators of modernist heterodoxy to their front, and the liberal mainstream press to their rear. Neither would give them a fair chance to get their message out. So they turned to the bloggers, and small independent media outlets, to get their message out to the public, and this in turn reve…

THE CRISIS AND THE STORM

In ages past, the Catholic Church faced three great crises....
The First Great Crisis was the Arian Heresy, and it was by far the worst. It happened in the fourth century and lasted about sixty years. The crisis centred around the divinity of Jesus Christ, wherein a rogue priest, named Arius, challenged established Church doctrine that Jesus Christ is divine, and God exists in the form of Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  Arius asserted that Jesus was merely a man, a great prophet, and the promised Messiah, but not God. Arius was the first one to come up with the concept of a "Bible" or Canon of Scripture, in which he hand-selected the books contained therein, all of them affirming his heretical views. This period saw the majority of the world's Christian bishops, priests and laity siding with Arius. The Councils of Nicea and Constantinople were held during this time, and in response the Church not only condemned Arius and his heresy, but also formulated the Nicene …
