Pope Francis Delivers A Remarkable Speech

Address by His Holiness Pope Francis to the European Parliament plenary session in Strasbourg on Novemeber 25, 2014
BREAKING! In an unbelievable speech to the European Union parliament, Pope Francis channelled the pontificates of Pope Benedict XVI and Saint John Paul II, obliterating the "dictatorship of relativism" that has brought Europe to social emptiness and political despair. He called upon Europe to re-embrace its Christian history and culture, citing that far from being a threat to secular institutions, Christianity offers values and morals that enrich them. He called for a fusion of solidarity with SUBSIDIARITY, that respects the cultural diversity of Europe and the local governance of peoples. He decried abortion, and the throwaway culture, which leaves the unborn, aged and infirm to die alone. He assailed rampant materialism, corporatism and consumerism, that has left half of the world to starvation while the other half throws away uneaten food. He called for grea…

Mother of the Americas

The year is 1521 AD. The capital city of the Aztec empire falls to Spanish imperial forces, who have just conquered the Mesoamerican culture of the New World. This marks the end of the most advanced civilisation ever produced by the Amerindian (Native American) peoples. From this time forward, all Amerindian would fall under submission to European power. Conquered and humiliated, the Aztec people become second-class citizens in Spanish America. European settlers have no problem perpetuating this status quo. Millions of Aztec people are now living as strangers on their own continental soil. They've lost their sovereignty, power, homeland and in some cases even their freedom. Pride is all they have left, and daily this is subjected to the status quo of second-class citizenship. Orders from the king of Spain, and the pope himself, would eventually bring an end to these abuses. However, the Aztec people have every reason to hate the Spaniards, and everything they brought with them to…

Mary -- Conceived without Sin

As the solemnity of the Immaculate Conception (Dec. 8th) approaches, I thought it appropriate to explain the significance of this feast. This is probably the most misunderstood doctrine among non-Catholics. Even some Catholics don't understand it. To be clear, let's define it. The doctrine of the Immaculate Conception is a dogma, meaning that is is a required belief of all Catholics. In other words, if you don't believe in the Immaculate Conception, then technically speaking, you're not really Catholic. It is defined as the belief that Mary, the mother of Jesus, was herself conceived without the stain of original sin.

Some Protestants contend that the doctrine is "unbiblical," that it "deifies Mary as a goddess," and "diminishes the role of Christ in the redemption of humanity." Such contention is unwarranted, and a little paranoid, as I'll demonstrate below.

The stain of original sin was defined by St. Augustine as the mark of sin in…

The Synod and the Ordinariates

After watching what happened at the Extraordinary Synod on the Family in Rome last month, I am now 100% convinced, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that the monsignor ordinaries, of the personal ordinariates for Anglicans, need to be given a place in the upcoming Ordinary Synod on the Family in October 2015. Why? I say this because their presence in the Catholic Church, indeed the reason for their existence as head of the ordinariates, and the very reason for the existence of the ordinariates themselves, is directly related to the modernist attack on the family.

Reunion with Rome has always been a goal for the anglo-catholic movement within Anglicanism. But actual corporate reunion with Rome never really happened until after the radical changes that occurred in the Anglican Communion between 1970 through 2010. It started out subtly, way back in 1930, with the acceptance of artificial contraception in the Anglican Communion. In time however, within a span of about 50 years, this subtle a…
