Saint Francis of Assisi: The Man vs. the Myth

Detroit Conference: Aging “Hippie” Catholics want to drag church back to 1965

In another keynote address, Jeanette Rodriguez, a theology professor from Seattle University, praised Latin American liberation theology – which has been criticized by the Vatican – and said the church must side with the poor and oppressed.

Editor’s note: Most of these folks are dismayed to see the post-Vatican II liberal onslaught fizzling out, in favor of the ancient faith … as if 45 years of anarchy within the Church of Christ isn’t enough.

This isn’t about the abuse crisis, or any of the other named causes. It’s about denying essential doctrines and practices of the Catholic Church and replacing them with liberal, “democratic” novelties, according to the seriously disordered image and likeness of the radical reformers.

The Anglicans have already done all that … and look what happened!

The fact is … “CHANGE” came to the Catholic Church in 1965 … and once the church was taken out of the way, a host of abominations, sacrilege, and social ills shortly followed.

Revelation 12:12-17  Therefore, rejoice, O heavens, and you that dwell therein. Woe to the earth and to the sea, because the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, knowing that he hath but a short time.  And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman who brought forth the man child.

And there were given to the woman two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the desert, unto her place, where she is nourished for a time and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

And the serpent cast out of his mouth, after the woman, water, as it were a river: that he might cause her to be carried away by the river.

And the earth helped the woman: and the earth opened her mouth and swallowed up the river which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was angry against the woman: and went to make war with the rest of her seed, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

The Church of the Ages has finally emerged from the post-Vatican II desert. Satan’s torrent of lies has been diverted, and at least partially tamed. Yet the battle continues to rage.

From the above passage, it’s clear that the “good guys” (in every generation) are those who continue to keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. The only way to do that is to remain totally faithful to the Catholic Church.

And what of the other guys?

2Timothy 4:1-4  I charge thee, before God and Jesus Christ, who shall judge the living and the dead, by his coming and his kingdom:

Preach the word: be instant in season, out of season: reprove, entreat, rebuke in all patience and doctrine.

For there shall be a time when they will not endure sound doctrine but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables.

Full report from Chicago on the Michael Voris Majesty of the Faith Conference


A kinder, gentler Michael Voris shifts into “high gear”

by Doug Lawrence

At his latest “Majesty of the Faith” all-day conference, held Saturday April 30, in west suburban St. Charles, Illinois, Michael Voris of St. Michael’s Media and Real Catholic TV, spent relatively little time criticizing the modernist church, or taking to task errant bishops and priests. Instead, he offered the approximately 100 serious, dedicated Catholics in attendance, a finely crafted, highly nuanced and very powerful view of the glory and majesty of the ancient faith that we have come to call “Catholic”… as it was originally founded by He who IS the Majesty of the Faith … Jesus Christ … and handed down to us, by the apostles.

Mr. Voris did a masterful job of weaving together some 2000 years of Catholic scripture, tradition, and authentic church teachings, in a way that not only captured everyone’s attention (for about six hours, in total) but fully engaged their hearts and minds, as well.

Returning from our lunch break, a short Q&A session revealed an extraordinary and inspiring level of enthusiasm and curiosity from virtually all those assembled, who ranged in age from around 12 to almost 90 … some of whom traveled nearly a hundred miles, to get there.

To put it mildly, Michael’s timeless message of faith was received with enthusiasm and grace, by all. It was truly a beautiful thing to behold!

Just a few comments, from those who attended:

“The man speaks the truth!”

“We need to get Michael to come to our parish.”

“I never really understood the Bible, before today.”

“This is the kind of stuff that will really make Catholics come home!” 

The late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, one of Michael’s favorite Catholic theologians and speakers (and mine) would have been proud to have been there, to hear him. And perhaps he was!

As one of the sponsors of the event, I would like to thank Michael Voris for all his great work and dedication, all those who attended, all the other program sponsors, and especially, the Weber family, who really did all the “grunt work” of putting the whole thing together.

Real Catholic TV also offers a themed video series on “The Majesty of the Faith”, which can be viewed on your computer or smart phone. Visit the Real Catholic TV site.

Lukewarm Christians, superficial Christianity: A congenial form of paganism.

Archbishop Chaput offered his observations at a conference in Paris honoring the late Cardinal Archbishop Jean-Marie Lustiger, a Jewish convert to Catholicism who was the Archbishop of Paris from 1981 to 2005.

The Denver archbishop described Cardinal Lustiger as “an unsentimental realist” who dared to speak about disturbing trends in the Church and society – including a lack of faith among professed Christians, leaving a vacuum that would be filled by other “gods” such as sex and money.

SSPX: The teaching of Vatican II is contradictory to what the Popes and Councils have expounded in the past…

Two years ago, for the first time, a voice in Rome rose up to question the Second Vatican Council; Monsignor Gherardini wrote several articles and a book criticizing the Council.

He demonstrates that the Second Vatican Council is not in continuity with the previous doctrine of the Church. On December 17, 2010 a bishop, Mgr. Schneider asked for a new Syllabus.

In a conference in Rome, he denounced the wrong interpretations of Vatican II and proposed a list of propositions (a Syllabus) condemning “the errors of interpretation of Vatican II”. So, the solution he recommends to correct the actual situation of the Church is the use of the extraordinary Magisterium of the Pope, a solemn infallible declaration of the Pope to clear up the Council.

This evolution is very interesting and it will go farther, because if the infallible Magisterium is necessary to clarify the Council, it means that, to say the least, it is ambiguous and therefore leads to errors regarding the Faith! This shift of the debate toward the doctrinal level is clearly happening, albeit at a slow pace. I believe that this is another effect of these doctrinal discussions.
